People seem to be misinterpreting this thing.

By agreeing to the website, yes, you do grant access to your computer. It's not, however, like they are going to suddenly take control of every computer in existence.

This is kind of like having someone knock on your door. You open it and talk to them. They want to come in for some legitimate reason (plumbing, inspection, etc), and they tell you that while on your property, they can search through whatever they want. By letting them in, you agree to letting them have access to your house. If a different plumber, however, were to come buy and fix your pipes (but didn't give the search disclaimer) and you found him rummaging through your trash, you could take legal action. Same goes for the website - you are agreeing to let them have access to your computer. It's not forced on you by anyone.

I guess it boils down to this - if you have something on your computer you don't want the gov't to know about, keep your clunker.

Not to mention:

"Russian legal experts further point out..."

This topic has been gone over time and time again on ATS. At last count there are at least 4 threads about this. It was a hoax and scare tactic that was staged by Glenn Beck. Anyone can go to the site. If you actually look at the site, you cannot duplicate the message that Glenn Beck showed on his Shock-Jock Trash show.

This is merely Much Ado About Nothing as Shakespeare would say.

The headline is completely inaccurate.

This applies to dealers only, who are entering into a relationship with the gov.

Although the language of the dealer’s agreement might seem a little over-zealous (a common problem in “terms of service” agreements), it’s a lot more understandable when you realize it’s intended to apply to dealers who are entering into a business agreement with the government to dispose of clunkers. And it appears on a secure website that allows dealers to log into the government’s financial system. The page is named:

This whole “issue” is pure tin foil.

This is a complete lie from Glenn Beck.

1. The site he references is ONLY for dealers accessing the DoT website. You can't enter that part of the site without the proper registration and login details. Only dealers get that, he didn't accidentally make his way into that page. He and his producers knew what they were doing. Non-dealer citizens are not subject to this.

2. This is a fairly common government practice. If you use a computer at a government/military facility everything you do is monitored. You need access cards to turn on or use certain machines. This is to ensure classified information is not compromised and that unauthorized access doesn't take place. This is a security measure used on every military base and I would assume every government office.

3. They don't take data from the computers. This doesn't mean they own anything on your computer. When you are not logged into the site they have no authority or control over your computer or information. What it means is that while you are connected to that server, your computer is treated like the computer in every other office, from Sgt. to General. For that time they can monitor traffic and usage to ensure that security isn't compromised while you are connected to government computers. It's more of a warning, they aren't scanning your hard drive while you access the site. They will only keep records of changes, transactions, things like that.

4. Glenn Beck and his producers knew all of this. They aren't idiots. While many people will read and headline and run with it, they do not. They research and then appear to do the same thing, but they are well aware of how public opinion is formed from shows like his. They know that even if they are caught lying that it doesn't matter, there are no repercussions and most people won't hear it about it. This is ridiculous and a spit in the face to the American people.
