  • Millions of Yahoo webcam images intercepted by GCHQ

    Tankie,

    Time to leave Yahoo, mate ;)

    1.8m users targeted by UK agency in six-month period alone
    Optic Nerve program collected Yahoo webcam images in bulk
    Yahoo: 'A whole new level of violation of our users' privacy'
    Material included large quantity of sexually explicit images

    Britain's surveillance agency GCHQ, with aid from the US National Security Agency, intercepted and stored the webcam images of millions of internet users not suspected of wrongdoing, secret documents reveal.

    GCHQ files dating between 2008 and 2010 explicitly state that a surveillance program codenamed Optic Nerve collected still images of Yahoo webcam chats in bulk and saved them to agency databases, regardless of whether individual users were an intelligence target or not.

    To make mistakes is human. To blame someone else for your mistake, is strategic.

    Meh, can't remember the last time I actually used a webcam
    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Abusing Yellow is meant to be a labor of love, not something you sell to the highest bidder.
