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.

Security Experts Warn of Orwellian Future in Apple Case | Re/code
[ all without a warrant ] Your Samsung smart TV or Amazon Echo might spy on you next if the government succeeds in forcing Apple to disable security protections on a smartphone to further the FBI’s investigation into the San Bernardino attacks. Security experts from Stanford, Harvard and Rice universities and independent researchers laid out this Orwellian scenario in a court filing today, supporting Apple’s fight against a court order to help investigators hack a smartphone used by one of the assailants in the mass killing. The group of seven experts argues that the judge’s order [...] disturbing possibilities for how law enforcement might turn everyday items into surveillance tools. //&!

The outgoing Liberty director explains why plans to scrap the Human Rights Act threaten freedom, and why she won’t stop campaigning [...] I ask Chakrabarti – once branded by the Sun as “the most dangerous woman in Britain” – who she thinks deserves the “most dangerous” hallmark now. “Right now? David Cameron.” She says. “Actually, can I have more than one? Then him and that particular group in the cabinet now who are dedicated to scrapping the Human Rights Act. That group. They are an existential threat to the rights and freedoms of the most vulnerable people in our country.” [...] investigatory powers bill. “We wouldn’t let the state impose identity cards, but these,” she holds up her phone, “these we buy.”

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.

Die Spione können, sobald die sogenannte Investigatory Powers Bill vom Parlament verabschiedet wird, ganz legal das tun, was sie bislang ohne solide rechtliche Grundlage machten. Gleichzeitig sagte Innenministerin May, sie wolle die Aufsicht über die Geheimdienste stärken.

Jeremy Corbyn: Labour will campaign for UK to stay in the EU | Politics | The Guardian
McFadden stressed he did not believe Cameron was seeking to undermine those rights in his talks with his EU partners, but recognises that Corbyn is deeply concerned at what he regards is a shift from a social Europe to a free-market Europe. He said: “If the prime minister tries to water down hard won employment protections that would be wrong and foolhardy on his part and we would very strongly oppose it. But if he does try to water down these protections, the right response is not to leave the EU but to fight the 2020 election on a clear commitment to restore those employment rights – and we have to remain in the EU to do that.”

But the Post doesn't explain what those sanctions would be, or why the U.S. is going after individual targets instead of the Chinese government itself. One thing that is clear: Chinese president Xi Jinping is scheduled to visit the U.S. next month.

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 mounts over claims Police Scotland breached rules over spying on journalists (From Herald Scotland)
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!?

Sicherheitshysterie nach britischem Urteil gegen Vorratsdatenspeicherung: „Tausende Leben in Gefahr“ | netzpolitik.org
Die Notwendigkeit der technisierten Überwachung wird gar nicht mehr hinterfragt, die gerichtlichen Backpfeifen an die britische Regierung stattdessen in grotesker Weise kommentiert. So titelt beispielhaft der Telegraph in Anlehnung an eine Aussage der britischen Innenministerin Theresa May: Thousands of lives at risk after High Court rules snooping powers unlawful. // theguardian.com/world/surveillance - bit.ly/1fa4mQP // &! bit.ly/1CMnrUg &! bit.ly/1DoKqiZ - Why appeasing governments over encryption will never work. David Cameron & the director of the FBI have both asked for ‘backdoors’ to be included in encryption software [...] Keys Under Doormats: Mandating insecurity by requiring government access to all data and communications, is worth reading in full. It concludes that proposals for backdoors are “unworkable in practice, raise enormous legal and ethical questions, and would undo progress on security at a time when internet vulnerabilities are causing extreme economic harm”.

US torture doctors could face charges after report alleges post-9/11 'collusion' | Law | The Guardian
The largest association of psychologists in the United States is on the brink of a crisis, the Guardian has learned, after an independent review revealed that medical professionals lied and covered up their extensive involvement in post-9/11 torture. The revelation, puncturing years of denials, creates the potential for leadership firings, loss of licenses and even prosecutions. For more than a decade, the American Psychological Association (APA) has maintained that a strict code of ethics prohibits its more than 130,000 members to aid in the torture of detainees while simultaneously permitting involvement in military and intelligence interrogations.

In den Dokumenten taucht auch ein deutscher Anbieter auf. [...] Der britische Geheimdienst GCHQ und die amerikanische NSA haben gezielt Anti-Viren-Hersteller ausspioniert.

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.

Here’s how reporters are reacting to Snowden’s revelations | PandoDaily
The global surveillance programs revealed by Edward Snowden have caused journalists to change how they operate, question what the government knows about them, and consider abandoning investigative reporting, according to a survey from the Pew Research Center. A significant number of the journalists surveyed said they had changed their behavior, whether it’s how they store sensitive files (49 percent), how they communicate with other journalists (29 percent), whether they’ve reached out to a source (13 percent), or pursued a specific story (2 percent). Many are also convinced the government is gathering information about them. Some 64 percent of journalists believed intelligence agencies had “probably collected data” about them. (The other 36 percent, as “InfoSec Taylor Swift” joked, must not read the news.)

BND-Chef warnt davor, das GCHQ zu verärgern
Vor der heutigen Sitzung des NSA-Untersuchungsausschusses im Deutschen Bundestag gab es bereits Druck von Geheimdienst-Seite. BND-Chef Gerhard Schindler warnte den Ausschuss am gestrigen Mittwoch davor, sich nicht zu eingehend mit den kriminellen Machenschaften des britischen Geheimdienstes “Government Communications Headquarters” (GCHQ) zu beschäftigen. Setze der Ausschuss das GCHQ zu sehr unter Druck, so Schindlers düstere Prognose, sei der BND zukünftig “blind”. Anscheinend befürchtet der BND-Chef, das GCHQ könnte den Deutschen, wenn diese ihm zu kritisch auf den Zahn fühlen, die Kooperation verweigern. Angeblich haben die britischen Schnüffler gar damit gedroht, alle Kontakte zu den deutschen Sicherheitsbehörden abzubrechen, wenn im Untersuchungsausschuss britische Staatsgeheimnisse ans Licht kommen sollten.

>> Bürger sollen nur überwacht werden dürfen, wenn ein Gerichtsbeschluss und ein begründeter Verdacht vorliegt. [...] Das Ausnutzen von Backdoors, 0-day-exploits oder der Schwächung von Verschlüsselungsstandards soll verboten werden. [...] Whistleblower, die illegale Überwachungsaktivitäten aufdecken, sollen zuverlässig und effektiv geschützt werden – inklusive der Gewährung von Asyl. [...] [...] Die NSA und ihre Partner betreiben vermutlich seit Jahren Wirtschaftsspionage unter dem Deckmantel der Terrorismusabwehr. Anders sind verwanzte Büros, wie etwa die des Industriedienstleisters Ferrostaal, jedenfalls schwer zu erklären. Auch gibt es gezielte Programme zur Sammlung von sensiblen Informationen über politische Gegner, wie etwa deren Pornokonsum.

[...] Families involved with the Belhaj case brought a claim to the IPT over concerns that their private discussions with legal charity Reprieve and law firm Leigh Day were being intercepted. The families have brought litigation about the kidnappings and allege that any interception of privileged communications has infringed their right to a fair trial. [...] "We hope the tribunal will tell the government in no uncertain terms that this conduct is completely unacceptable." [...] "It's now clear the intelligence agencies have been eavesdropping on lawyer-client conversations for years. "This raises troubling implications for the whole British justice system.

[...] Wir wissen, dass wir dieser Überwachung (fast) nicht entgehen können, auch nicht durch Verschlüsselung unserer Kommunikation, denn bei allen marktüblichen Programmen ist eine kleine Hintertür offen gelassen, durch die Geheimdienste hineinschlüpfen können, [...] Die demokratische Verfasstheit ist weder in Stein gemeißelt noch genetisch einprogrammiert.

This stance flies in the face of what we expect from internet companies these days, many of whom tend to act as if they own the content we create. [...] COMPANIES HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE THE STEPS THAT APPLE AND OTHERS WERE TAKING TO STRENGTHEN THE SECURITY OF CUSTOMER DATA, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET USED TO IT.

Dropbox was asked not to inform users of 80% of its government data requests | PandoDaily
Many of the leaks published by the Guardian, the New York Times, the Washington Post, and ProPublica over the last few months show that companies might not even be aware of everything the government is doing to access their data. The US National Security Agency can reportedly infiltrate Google’s data through a program called MUSCULAR. Upon hearing of this program, Google engineers “exploded in profanity” and others issued a “giant Fuck You” to the NSA on their Google+ profiles. How could these companies disclose such programs in their transparency reports — even if the current restrictions are lifted — if they are unaware of them in the first place? [...] Dropbox’s transparency report is a stark reminder of just how little we still know about what information law enforcement seeks from tech companies more than a year after many of the government’s surveillance programs were first revealed.
