Cnet is reporting that FBI has formed a dedicated unit for the purpose of internet surveillance. You could be getting spied on this moment.
According to Declan McCullough, the National Domestic Communications Assistance Center has a mandate to try and crack skype conversations, analyze internet traffic data, and build wiretapping hardware.
The goal is to develop new technologies to make it easier for other law enforcement agencies to spy on people. Oh gee.
"It is important to point out that the NDCAC will not be responsible for the actual execution of any electronic surveillance court orders and will not have any direct operational or investigative role in investigations. It will provide the technical knowledge and referrals in response to law enforcement's requests for technical assistance."
