England riots: Hackers hit Blackberry over police help


www.bbc.co.uk

Team Poison defaced the official Blackberry blog, posting a message that threatened the firm with retaliation if it handed user data to authorities.

Blackberry's instant messaging service is believed to have been used by some looters to plan their movements.

I have to agree that i don't like people tracking cell phones, but that is what the customer agrees to when they buy a cell phone, they are taking that risk.

I find this attack pretty, how might i say... grr. Yeah just grr, i really hate these riots, and anyone helping them are just pissing me off. Its just what the global Elite wants, get the people to freak out and riot, so then they can either install a police state, or, start a "revolution." The issue with the "revolution" is that the people running the rebellion will be the global elite again, who will then just take control, and give people a false sense of security.

I have a strong distaste for the scum rioting in the U.K. right now. These people are the lowest of the low, bottom feeders. But do I think Blackberry should bend over backwards and give out info to the cops? NO. Even though I'd love justice to be served, I don't think the police should have power over private companies when it comes to our privacy.

I.e.
2000 rioters
Millions of U.K. residents

What are the cops going to do? Go through every single text message sent? I'd only be for this should there be a pedophilia ring that they (the police) wanted to bring down. I'll gladly void some of my privacy in such a case. But not for riots. Isn't London some of the most heavily watched over areas? Camera's one very street light etc? If so, what's the use of having it if they can't catch the rioters with 'em? Isn't that kind the point?

In the first place I was talking about mobile phones that can be used to organize mob's thefht's, that aren't genuine protesters. Now, in second place, these hackers that organized these mob of thefht's, are threatening blackberry, should be also hacked or arrested, in the end.

So it makes sence. Mobile phones where used to organized this and know this team poison is threatening the discover os truth.

this all conected.
note: there is also a rumor payment's been made to some people with influence, to start this. This all in intereste of making global agitation. I agree with genuine protest, Idon't agree with killing and robbing inocent people. In the end it all como to this.

Of course it is wrong, but its legal over there.

Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000
Source (yeah wiki whatever)



The Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act 2000 (c.23) (RIP or RIPA) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom, regulating the powers of public bodies to carry out surveillance and investigation, and covering the interception of communications. It was introduced to take account of technological change such as the growth of the Internet and strong encryption. RIPA can be invoked by government officials specified in the Act on the grounds of national security, and for the purposes of detecting crime, preventing disorder, public safety, protecting public health, or in the interests of the economic well-being of the United Kingdom. The Regulation of Investigatory Powers (RIP) Bill was introduced in the House of Commons on 9 February 2000 and completed its Parliamentary passage on 26 July. Although RIPA originally listed public authorities such as local councils for some kinds of covert surveillance, in September 2003 Home Secretary David Blunkett announced additions to the list of those entitled to access certain types of communications data collected under RIPA in what civil rights and privacy campaigners dubbed a "snoopers' charter". Following a public consultation and Parliamentary debate, however, Parliament approved the new additions in December 2003, April 2005, July 2006 and February 2010.[1]




RIPA regulates the manner in which certain public bodies may conduct surveillance and access a person's electronic communications.
The Act:
- enables certain public bodies to demand that an ISP provide access to a customer's communications in secret;
- enables mass surveillance of communications in transit;
- enables certain public bodies to demand ISPs fit equipment to facilitate surveillance;
- enables certain public bodies to demand that someone hand over keys to protected information; allows certain public bodies to monitor people's internet activities;
- prevents the existence of interception warrants and any data collected with them from being revealed in court.
