ive just had a thought, everone says the government could know what your doing on the internet through the sound of your keyboard which has been covered before, but since spyware has been on the increase i was wondering could the government mak spyware that could see exactly what sites youv been on and alert if you go on something that is deemed as wrong eg bomb makin site

Why have spyware when you've got Echelon



ECHELON is a term associated with a global network of computers that automatically search through millions of intercepted messages for pre-programmed keywords or fax, telex and e-mail addresses. Every word of every message in the frequencies and channels selected at a station is automatically searched. The processors in the network are known as the ECHELON Dictionaries. ECHELON connects all these computers and allows the individual stations to function as distributed elements an integrated system. An ECHELON station's Dictionary contains not only its parent agency's chosen keywords, but also lists for each of the other four agencies in the UKUSA system [NSA, GCHQ, DSD, GCSB and CSE]


Though I think it is highly possible Intel agencies use both among many other systems to gain intelligence.

Most companies use spyware to watch a "computer users" visited websites and then send messages to the spyware program to show popup's depending upon the web content viewed. Though there are many different types of spyware programs and can be used for many functions.

yea, the govt doesnt spy on individual computers, it spies on the entire data stream of the internet, high-profile networks, so on and so forth, putting spyware on each individual computer would be obvious, and it would be possible to remove it.

and key words like the ones we could say on here could trigger that. if they did set up a system that 'lived' on the internet it would be near to impossible to switch off anyway and without knowing exactly how the system works would be very hard to block so we might as well get use to it
