XKeyscore: So almost every action the NSA monitors the Internet




The NSA program XKeyscore is perhaps more powerful than previously thought. As a new report from The Guardian shows now, anyone with access to XKeyscore retrieve all the data. Another court order is needed to do that. Be stored meta-data and content of e-mails, chats and surfing histories.


Themselves to identify users who hide behind a VPN network is not a problem for XKeyscore. This can be read out from a presentation to XKeyscore from the year 2008. Using the program is simple. Enter keywords, possibly an e-mail address, or a specific website, you will notice that you spit out everything possible.

Who wants to deal seriously with the issue, it does best in the article directly from The Guardian and in the accompanying presentation . The essence is that we still do not know everything about the PRISM program (and its components) and be so fast probably do not know. And our politicians can probably expect any short-term education .
