    Spies use smartphone apps to spy on you

    RAPHAEL SATTER, THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

    POSTED: Monday, January 27, 2014, 7:36 PM

    LONDON (AP) - Documents leaked by former NSA contactor Edward Snowden suggest that spy agencies have a powerful ally in Angry Birds and a host of other apps installed on smartphones across the globe.
    The documents, published Monday by The New York Times, the Guardian, and ProPublica, suggest that the mapping, gaming, and social networking apps which are a common feature of the world's estimated 1 billion smartphones can feed America's National Security Agency and Britain's GCHQ with huge amounts of personal data, including location information and details such as political affiliation or sexual orientation.
    The size and scope of the program aren't publicly known, but the reports suggest that U.S. and British intelligence easily get routine access to data generated by apps such as the Angry Birds game franchise or the Google Maps navigation service.
    The joint spying program "effectively means that anyone using Google Maps on a smartphone is working in support of a GCHQ system," one 2008 document from the British eavesdropping agency is quoted as saying. Another document - a hand-drawn picture of a smirking fairy conjuring up a tottering pile of papers over a table marked "LEAVE TRAFFIC HERE" - suggests that gathering the data doesn't take much effort.

    Good post. Thanks for doing that. A guy at works was discussing this with me. Big Brother!

    Just in case they are accessing the camera on my phone I always have it facing me when I'm jerking off. Give them something to watch.

    RIM for a long time was the only thing allowed in defense installations... NSA couldnt get through their encryption for a long fucking time.
    This was actually their big claim to fame

    im not gonna say how i know this but the fact that the other half makes weapons of mass destruction should give you n idea where I've gotten this info

    droid and apple just handed over the reigns with known backdoors..hell built in backdoors as it turns out.
    RIM even if they are making death noises for years now is the only company that still continually reinvents its encryption to not be broken into...the nsa keeps getting the info but not with RIMs help

    as far as them being the only device allowed on defense installations, thats no longer true and hasn't been for at least 5 years now.

    I really liked RIM. Blackberries were much better for professional use than Droid or Apple. I wish they would mount a comeback.

    BB actually makes a decent phone now. Also several companies are starting to look into the concept of a more secure phone. Usually these are just customized android. Android can be VERY secure if you know how to set it up. Apple can also be set up to be pretty secure. I'd love and iPhone but I need more of a screen.
