Investigatory Powers Bill: May defends surveillance powers - BBC News
Mrs May has said Britain's spies must continue to be allowed to hack into foreign computer networks, under so-called "bulk equipment interference warrants", as this was "a key operational requirement for GCHQ".
She told MPs that bulk powers had played a significant role in every major counter-terrorism investigation over the past decade, including seven terror plots foiled in the past 18 months, and in responding to the bulk of cyber attacks against UK interests.

Draft snooper's charter 'fails on spying powers and privacy protections' | World news | The Guardian
Theresa May’s draft “snooper’s charter” bill fails to cover all the intrusive spying powers of the security agencies and lacks clarity in its privacy protections, a parliamentary committee has said. The intelligence and security committee said the draft legislation published by the home secretary suffered from a lack of sufficient time and preparation. It was evident that even those working on the legislation had not always been clear about what it was intended to achieve, it said.

Can we really trust judges to protect reporters' confidential sources? | Media | The Guardian
Journalists won’t even be safe to talk email whistleblowers from a coffee shop [...] In stressing that the powers would not be used for mass surveillance, May said the onus would be on the home office to show necessity and proportionality. And who would decide whether that was justified? Judicial commissioners, she said. They would operate a “double-lock” authorisation process on intercept and bulk interception warrants in order to prevent intrusive snooping. [ old boys club with career interests? titles, pensions? ] But will this judicial oversight provide enough protection? That’s the key worry for journalists who now know that there is nowhere for them to conceal their communications with confidential sources.

Apple raises concerns over UK's draft surveillance bill - BBC News
The US-based firm has passed on its thoughts to a parliamentary committee scrutinising the legislation. It focuses on three issues: encryption, the possibility of having to hack its own products, and the precedent it would set by agreeing to comply with UK-issued warrants. The Home Secretary Theresa May said last month that the proposed powers were needed to fight crime and terror. [...] But Apple appears to be concerned that the bill's language could still be interpreted more expansively and force the creation of a so-called "backdoor" to provide the authorities with access. Apple argues that the existence of such a backdoor would risk creating a weakness that others then might exploit, making users' data less secure. [...] Overseas warrants A second area of concern relates to the issue of "extra-territoriality". Existing British legislation - and the bill - maintain that companies need to comply with warrants for information wherever they are based and wherever the data resides.

Defence review: PM could send 10,000 troops on to streets - BBC News
Trident - about 31bn // https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deterrence_theory - Up to 10,000 troops could be deployed on to British streets in the event of a Paris-style attack, David Cameron has said, as he announced plans for an extra £12bn for military equipment. The PM also said two 5,000-strong "strike brigades" would be created, as it was revealed the cost of renewing Trident could increase by £6bn. [...] the government's £178bn defence spending plans for the next decade // Comment: The extra £12bn going to the Ministry of Defence of course comes at a cost to other departments. Every penny that goes there has to come from somewhere else, and the depth of the cuts elsewhere will be revealed by George Osborne on Wednesday. Welfare, the police, and support for business are all likely to be hit. [...] what ground forces exist in Syria to take and hold land where IS is destroyed?

After the war, these networks remained, with an estimated four to five million semi-automatic weapons in circulation. There is a “symbiotic relationship” between terrorists and organised crime, he told presenter Mishal Husain.

Russia will fork Sailfish OS to shut out pesky Western spooks
Paranoia over NSA tampering spurs de-Westernisation drive // well only the Paranoid survive. [...] Russia’s Minister of Communications and Mass Media, Nikolai Nikiforov, has taken part in talks to form a consortium that will aid Russia in developing a custom mobile OS, reportedly a forked version of Jolla’s Sailfish OS, to lessen its dependence on Western technology. Nikiforov held a working meeting last week with the leadership of Hong Kong-based Sailfish Holdings, developer of the quietly admired Sailfish OS. Alongside other participants, the parties involved discussed the use of open-source software in the public and private sectors, taking into account technical, economic and political factors, the latter of which is expected to include United States’ interference with exported technologies.

PRESSURE is mounting on ministers to take action on Police Scotland amid further criticism of the force over claims it illegally spied on a journalist to uncover sources. The force's elite Counter Corruption Unit (CCU) is said to have snooped on the reporter without getting judicial approval - a tactic which was banned on March 25 following a row over officers using the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (Ripa) to access journalists’ phone records, texts and emails. // [ endemic and systemic! you are not safe. period. ] // &! bbc.in/1OQEaGJ - Ministers questioned over Police Scotland 'spying' claims // &! bbc.in/1KUFPu9 &! bbc.in/1Maojno << time to get their story right!?

Law changed to allow GCHQ hacking ... just as GCHQ hauled into court for hacking • The Register
[ unaccountable, free for all to hack anything that is in the domestic interest, can be corporate intelligence, trade secrets, patents, corporate documents & communications; Russia, China, Germany, Brazil, India. The NEW COLD WAR. see also 2015 BND affair with selectors. ] Government legislation to exempt GCHQ from prosecution on charges of illegal hacking has been passed and come into effect – apparently torpedoing an ongoing claim against the surveillance agency being heard by the Investigatory Powers Tribunal. Last July, a coalition of internet service providers and international organisations teamed up with Privacy International to take legal action against GCHQ. Their claim, which arrived in court today, has been hobbled by what the privacy warriors said was the revelation that the government had quietly ushered through legislation amending the Computer Misuse Act to exempt GCHQ and law enforcement from prosecution, and did so while the case was ongoing.

The NSA Reportedly Stole Millions Of SIM Encryption Keys To Gather Private Data | TechCrunch
The American National Security Agency (NSA), and the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), similar clandestine intelligence agencies, stole SIM card encryption keys from a manufacturer, allowing the groups to decrypt global cellular communications data. [...] “NSA and GCHQ basically have the keys to decyrpting mobile communications anywhere in the world, even without the participation of local communication carriers (which, even if not much, acts as some check on intelligence agency behavior). It’s the equivalent of these agencies having printed doorkeys for the front doors to millions or even billions of homes around the world, just in case they one day decided they needed to get in. Frankly, people should have no faith in the security of global mobile communications.” >> CLU’s Christopher Soghoian - "Steal millions of crypto keys and then complain publicly that encryption is a problem. The UK and US govs are shameless."

Kaspersky claims US spies can infect computers with malware that is almost impossible to detect | PandoDaily
NSA has found a way to infect computers targeted for surveillance with malware that is almost impossible to detect and even harder to remove. Kaspersky Lab says in its report that a threat actor known as the Equation Group made this possible by infecting firmware used in hard drives made by the world’s top manufacturers. // &! Reddit - bit.ly/1ATpm6v >> According to Kaspersky, getting the malicious code into a drive’s firmware is not an easy task, and can’t be done with help of public tools, meaning that the NSA had to have access to source codes for hard drives produced by these companies. [meaning they asked for access (and or intercepted orders) when OEM orders came from targeted countries/firms? or spoof hw vendor sites and let them download the manipulated firmware] &! bit.ly/19vzSpI - ie Iran and Russia.

A court managed what the complicit UK press couldn't: force GCHQ to tell the truth | Trevor Timm | Comment is free | The Guardian
A UK court vindicated Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing on Friday by ruling that the secrecy surrounding one of the programs he exposed was, in fact, illegal. The decision is more evidence that not only were the Snowden revelations necessary and justified, but are also slowly forcing changes in both US and UK, even as both governments fiercely resist. In a stunning ruling, the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) – which oversees (and usually rubber stamps) Britain’s spy agencies – declared that the intelligence-sharing rules between the NSA and GCHQ (Britain’s NSA equivalent and partner-in-crime) governing their mass surveillance program violated UK human rights laws because they were kept secret for so long. [...] Snowden once rightly called the UK media’s coverage of the GCHQ story “a disservice to the public.”

UK government asks: How's our hacking?
UK gov releases equipment interference guidelines for spy & law enforcement agencies; the guidelines never calls it hacking but 'interference activities; Deputy Director @ Privacy International Eric King (@e3i5) says it's the UK gov's attempt to grant itself some of the most intrusive powers. // "This is the first time that the agencies have admitted that they are in the hacking business," Eric King, the deputy director of London-based digital rights watchdog Privacy International, told Mashable. King said that it amounts to a belated attempt to give these activities a scrap of legal basis, in the face of a lawsuit filed by his group last year, which challenged the legality of the UK intelligence service GCHQ's hacking activities, revealed by Edward Snowden documents. For King, the document is basically an attempt by the UK government to grant itself "some of the most invasive and intrusive" powers it has at its disposal.

BBC News - GCHQ censured over sharing of internet surveillance data with US
UK surveillance agency GCHQ has been officially censured for not revealing enough about how it shares information with its American counterparts. The Investigatory Powers Tribunal said GCHQ failed until December 2014 to make clear enough details of how it shared data from mass internet surveillance. It was the IPT's first ruling against an intelligence agency in its 15-year history. The Home Office said the government was "committed to transparency". &! https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9008360 &! http://techcrunch.com/2015/02/06/ipt-nsa-gchq-ruling/ &! http://pando.com/2015/02/06/court-says-gchq-nsa-surveillance-programs-violated-human-rights-laws-but-theyre-all-good-now/

Google did fight to reveal warrant for WikiLeaks journalists’ Gmail accounts, attorney says | PandoDaily
bit.ly/1EnsklH - [any american company, or company with american satellite office is not deemed safe. that that is just the tip of the iceberg.] An attorney for Google has told the Washington Post that the company did fight a gag order preventing it from telling three WikiLeaks journalists their Gmail accounts were monitored by the Justice Department as the result of a warrant issued in March 2012. The statement was made in response to questions from WikiLeaks regarding Google’s compliance with the warrant, the existence of which it didn’t reveal to its subjects until December 2014, more than two-and-a-half years after the warrant was first issued. The warrant allowed the FBI to receive metadata and the full content of any messages sent via the monitored accounts. (WikiLeaks says the Gmail accounts were for personal use and that all sensitive conversations take place via encrypted communications tools.)

National Crime Agency director general: UK snooping powers are too weak | UK news | The Guardian
The UK’s top law enforcement officer says Britons must be prepared to sacrifice their freedoms online if they want to be protected from terrorists and cyber criminals. This includes giving authorities access to private email and social media contents. Speaking to The Guardian, the director general of the National Crime Agency (NCA), Keith Bristow, warned that the UK’s biggest threats are becoming increasingly focused on the web, and that authorities had not done enough to persuade the public that greater oversight of their online activity was necessary. // "The National Crime Agency was set up by the coalition to spearhead the national response to serious and organised crime. It has been called Britain’s version of America’s FBI with ministers considering giving it even greater powers and handing it the lead role in counter terrorism. It replaced the Serious and Organised Crime Agency, which was beset by problems from its birth."
