NSA Internet Data Mining (1 Comments) (link)
 Saturday, 8-June-2013  18:03:10 (GMT +10) - by Agg

The story of the weekend is the uncovering of a massive internet monitoring program, seemingly a partnership between various internet giants and the NSA and FBI. Equally unusual is the way the NSA extracts what it wants, according to the document: “Collection directly from the servers of these U.S. Service Providers: Microsoft, Yahoo, Google, Facebook, PalTalk, AOL, Skype, YouTube, Apple.” The Atlantic report on what we know including mobile phone intercepts, and the EFF have assembled a timeline to help explain what has leaked. Anonymous have leaked some NSA documents, and Washington Post explain some which cover PRISM in some detail. This slide shows when each company joined the program, with Microsoft being the first, on Sept. 11, 2007, and Apple the most recent, in October 2012. Facebook say they didn't know about the program. European authorities have reacted angrily to the revelations.

Update: There are broad denials from many companies named. Discussion in this thread.
