You should wait to find out more details on this.

Some details remain unclear, including when the requests began and whether the government demands are always targeted at individuals or seek entire password database dumps.


yeah I'd be cautious jumping to conclusions...also this writer fricked up one of his prior NSA stories real bad...so bad it was completely disavowed by CNET

No. But they know you will!

There is no need for your password if they want user account details (unless they're literally signing in and accessing the application through the intended user interface). If they have access to the data ...they have access. You're password doesn't matter. They're not signing into the app. They're querying databases/raw data.



nice simpleton response.


they want the hashed passwords so that they can use them to potentially decrypt any other data from that individual that may have been collected but is encrypted


that way they don't have to spend the time and effort required to MAYBE get lucky and brute force something. in other words, they are relying on people to use the same password for Gmail that they use to encrypt their data

Would you be okay with a guy going through all of your mail before you get it, listening to all of your conversations no matter how private. Listening to you talk about personal matters with your wife. How about this guy watching you and your wife while you take showers, have sex, take a shit, etc?

Would you be okay with that?

I mean, if you aren't doing anything illegal, what's your beef?

I wouldn't care. But having a physical human watching you is a bit of a stretch.

No beef here.

I mean that there isn't going to be a living, breathing human being standing in your bathroom watching you shower.

No, but why does that matter? Privacy is privacy. As long as you aren't doing anything illegal, why do you care?

There could be a living breathing human being gong through all of your email, and listening to all of your conversations.

They can find out all kinds of personal things about you, your family, your friends, etc.

And when the people collecting this information works for the government, that doesn't make you uncomfortable? That your own government is collecting what is basically a file on you.

You are perfectly okay with that?

Facial recognition software and cameras are ok to track all your movements but a guy in a car following you is not ok? Which one will do a better job tracking you?

You all act like you could do something about it if it were to happen.

Just abide, man.
