NSA has access to all Microsoft Windows 8 run computers

A set of leaked documents that reached the web today reveal that the German authorities have advised the local government to avoid using Windows 8, as the operating system contains backdoors that would allow Microsoft and the United States National Security Agency (NSA) to access all computers running it.


quote:

The papers published by German newspaper Zeit.de (translation needed) reveal that the Federal Administration and other departments have been warned of a so-called backdoor in the Trusted Computing technology standard and the built-in Trusted Platform Module (TPM) that would allow Microsoft to remotely access any system powered by Windows 8. TPM 2.0 was officially launched in 2011 and cannot be disabled, as it’s automatically started whenever the user starts booting Windows 8 on both desktop computers and tablets.


quote:

the leaked documents have reportedly been sent to German authorities in early 2012, which could be a sign that local agencies found out about the PRISM program and NSA’s spying activities way before whistleblower Edward Snowden disclosed the US government’s secret operations this summer.


Yay for statism

I've been considering making the switch to this and installing a VPN as well.

I've basically come to the assumption that everything, everywhere is under surveillance.

yet the Gov't wonders why so many people have migrated to TOR

I hope that MS isn't in bed with them. That will be a huge problem for them if so.

In this age of technology the government needs to take unique measures to prevent the next 9/11 or worse.

If you aren't breaking the law, what do you have to fear? I love my country and will make any sacrifice to ensure we remain safe.

Good job, good effort.

The odds that you are killed by a terrorist are quite small, with or without the gov't watching your every move.
