OFF Topic :
I don't know if you keep up on the NSA release of documents or not.
However if you look at this press release,
In amongst the 50,000 declasified documents is one from 1809 yup that is over 200years old...
Which begs the question "why so long"...
Another major breach of a major international institution:
I.M.F. Reports Cyberattack Led to ‘Very Major Breach’
This is the kind of espionage one can make serious money from if one can grab the RIGHT data and find the RIGHT buyer.
"Well. HERE'S your problem!"
All the Friday OT postings and no one mentioned the UN just declared Internet access a Human Right?
Whoo HOO! BITE ME COMCAST. You HAVE to carry me or I'll haul you into the World Court.
@Clive "begs the question "why so long"
Finally finished Jacobsen's Area51. She hints about Born Classified during parts of the book until she finally deals with the Roswell crash and the only EG&G engineer she could get to talk.
The AEC is it's own classification behemoth. They even denied access to the President regarding their live human radiation experimentation (informed consent recieved from orphan and developmentally deficient children.)
He didn't have a need-to-know.
Besides you know the NSA and the rest of the IC can maintain classification on that info that protects sources and methods.
Writing things down. Why that technology alone is how all their information is encoded. So anything 'written down'? Still Classified.
Includes the Constitution. Look what happened when THAT leaked. All those trouble makers screaming about their 'rights' and stuff.
You may want to look at this one,
"A juror, who contacted a defendant via Facebook, has admitted contempt of court in the first case of its kind in the UK involving the internet."
Apparently it's the first case of it's type in the UK (possibly the world) and it caused a major drugs case to colapse.
The EU has a whole looks like its going down the track of Gemany
Any release of exploits/vun or proable anything that can stuff up a computer could be classed in this.
..The price for the above rises and creates more orginzied crime nic :(
