teK_NSA reportedly had some Netbotz data center appliances infected with backdoors to spy on especially german targets16:30
teK_media says this was known to our secret service since 2004/516:30
frinnstdoesnt that just give you a warm fuzzy feeling?16:56
teK_it acknowldeges the suspicion that they MAY be SLIGHTLY less useful as someone makes us want to believe17:01
pedja'if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear' <--drives me nuts when I hear this17:32
pedjabut my absolute favorite is 'government needs trump citizen needs' from a young, 'IT professional'17:33
pedjakids these days[tm]17:34
onoderapedja: rms gets asked this in an interview and had  pretty good answer17:40
onoderawhat I also think is funny now that Trump is president elect, people suddenly "care" about spying and the NSA and stuff17:41
onoderalike I've heard a few people say, yeah now trump is in control of the NSA, like it wasn't bad before17:41
pedjabut Obama was 'benevolent', so it wasn't an issue ;)17:43
pedjaand that's the problem.17:43
pedjayou can't rely on government officials pinky promise that they will not use their power for nefarious purposes.that is insane.17:46
pedjathat is a touchy subject, particularly in this country17:47
pedjawe should really start #crux-politics channel for this kind of discussion :)17:48
