    It's quite disturbing. It's the data mining of U.S. individuals and companies that needs to be stopped. And, we need to see prosecutions when these guys break the law. A slap on the wrist isn't a deterrent.

    We all know this data is being used for political purposes. After this reporter wrote a negative article about Obama last year her computer was hacked and other things happened.

    CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson revealed in May that her computer had been compromised. When asked about the situation, CBS News responded with a statement that it was conducting an investigation.

    That investigation has reached the following conclusions, according to CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair:

    “A cyber security firm hired by CBS News has determined through forensic analysis that Sharyl Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions late in 2012. Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data.

    This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.

    CBS News is taking steps to identify the responsible party and their method of access.”

    More to come on this.

    It's probably useless for interdicting terrorists even when intelligence is presented.

    It IS probably useful in tracking Republicans, Libertarians (Tea Party), etc., then shutting them down before/when the shit hits the fan so they can't organize.:mad:

    On the plots they are claiming the surveillance stopped it turns out it was human and other sources that turned up the plots and the vast surveillance network was just used to confirm other sources.

    That's no reason to be surveilling everyone in the nation. We are just steps away from the Orwellian society and will be there soon if we don't stop this crap.
  10. damn do you mean the next generation of kinect is gonna be spying on me and having obligatory 10 min hates of Ron Paul and the tea party?
