Canada’s leading surveillance agency is monitoring millions of Internet users’ file downloads in a dragnet search to identify extremists,
according to top-secret documents.
According to the documents, the LEVITATION program can monitor downloads in several countries across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa, and North
LEVITATION does not rely on cooperation from any of the file-sharing companies. A separate secret CSE operation codenamed ATOMIC BANJO obtains the
data directly from internet cables that it has tapped into, and the agency then sifts out the unique IP address of each computer that downloaded files
from the targeted websites.
As of mid-2012, CSE was maintaining a list of 2,200 particular download links that it regarded as connected to suspicious “documents of interest.”
Anyone clicking on those links could have found themselves subject to extra scrutiny from the spies.
The same list includes downloads that CSE monitored in closely allied countries, including the United Kingdom, United States, Spain, Brazil, Germany
That right finger will get you in trouble
