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”.

BBC News - MI5, MI6 and GCHQ 'spied on lawyers'
[P]olicies allowing staff to access confidential communications between lawyers and their clients, official documents have revealed. [...] An MI5 document said legally privileged material may be used "just like any other item of intelligence". [...] 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. [...] correspondence between a person and their lawyer is confidential".

America Must End Its Paranoid War on Hackers | WIRED
"Our privileged attorney-client communications were routinely and illegally opened by the prison; when weev was interrogated by the FBI (while being denied an attorney) about one of his communications to me and complained about his privileged attorney-client mail being opened, one of the FBI agents told him that they “didn’t give a fuck about the attorney client privilege.” Unfortunately, this attitude is typical of many FBI agents; generally they believe they are above the law they are entrusted to enforce. [...] I’ve heard similar tales of nasty, brutish, and petty treatment when dealing with the U.S. penal system from other hackers I know who were thrown in jail for non-violent offenses. [...] Hackers are the new communists for the DOJ.
