NSA and GCHQ siphoning huge quantities of data from undersea fiber optic cables

http://www.techspot.com/news/53282-n...ic-cables.html

The plot thickens as the NSA’s data collection net widens. NSA leaks reveal that governments are tapping into “the Internet’s backbone” to siphon off huge quantities of data. That is, government programs in the US and UK are able to gain access to tremendous amounts of data by accessing networks of undersea fiber optic cable, according to a report from The Atlantic.

British surveillance programs titled “Mastering the Internet” and “Global Telecoms Exploitation” (that sounds legitimate, right?), akin to the US’s PRISM program, operate a subsidiary program called Tempora. Tempora soaks up huge amounts of data, upwards of 21 million gigabytes per day, and then retains the data for a month.

It is better to go back to the pre-industrial revolution way of life. It is simple but free from government surveillance of any sort. Oh yes, I forgot, There are spy satellites above.

Deep packet inspection is nothing new.
Not sure why people make a big deal out of it.
