May 14th is the official deadline for cable modem
companies, DSL providers, broadband over powerline,
satellite internet companies and some universities to finish
wiring up their networks with FBI-friendly surveillance gear,
to comply with the FCC's expanded interpretation of the
Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act.

Tomorrow FBI Will Be Jacked Into Everyone's Internets

We are going to have to say goodbye to internet privacy, the FBI will be able to watch anyone's traffic coming through their IP.

EDIT: Fixed link

Staff Edit to fix title.

And, since I do nothing illegal on the internet, I should be worried ?

Why ?

Pondering,

As said above, why worry. Besides it works both ways:

omg I contacted my internet provider and this claim seems to be true. And he ended the session rather quickly- So I assume he wasn't allowed to talk about it.


This is scary guys. Everything you do and say will be monitored online.

So I guess any of you members will welcome big brother into the privacy of your rooms because nothing is happening in there either.


It seems that a bit here and a nip there will eventually render our civil rights and privacy rights obsolete.

Spooky, spooky stuff. Why do we keep letting this crap happen? Where/when will all this insanity stop? I don't have illegal activity happening in my home or on my computer, but I sure don't want anyone snooping in on me. "Piss off government. You have no right to come into my home. "

the people that support this like to have some one looking over there solders to tell them if they are doing something wrong or not .. its a comfort to have big brother there all the time isnt it ?

The link doesn't work because there is no link in the code.

This seems to be what the OP was supposed to link to.

Since there is nothing you can do about it, you can only hope they catch more paedophiles out of it.


Im not sure of the net spying laws in my country but hanging out on ATS could infringe on dissent laws my country wants to bring in. And im suppose to live in a free and progressive country.

If you aren't a criminal, then you have nothing to worry about! What a cop-out. That phrase pisses me off to high heaven. Deny ignorance! They are using the excuse that this is the only way to weed out criminals from law abiding citizens. What a bunch of BS.

Are you paying for the service? I agree flag away here!

Cale you don't get it, this is clearly a invasion of privacy. Would you want someone eves dropping on you during a purchase online or something? Or even talking to a friend?

Well that is illegal, and people have gotten fines for doing that.

But you should not do illegal things no matter if the government is watching you or not.

This should not be cause for concern to law abiding people. Its impact is greatly exaggerated as well. They need a warrant to use this so no worries except for the criminal or terrorist types. If it stops bad people from posting on the Internet that may be a good thing. I think most ISP's finished these upgrades months ago. But then - paranoia runs deep, eh? Got stuff to hide?
Just kidding

Haha funny- Your not helping either.
Our government keeps us in the dark about everything. Opps I'm sorry enjoy your internet oh btw we wired your house into the FBI system.

i wonder what else this kit can do?

don't like someones personal website, oh well lets just turn it off. It would be good to get more technical details on exactly what it is doing, and just who is paying for the bandwidth for it to do it!

Im sure it wont be long before someone has a poke around. Seems like just what we need on the internet, another set of highly connected servers with large capacity that some clever 12 year old turns into a bot-net. Service pack 47 anyone?

I just hope they don't name it skynet or start playing chess with it.
