I always though the "internet" was a military project anyway, must have been mistaken.

I still find all the fuss about NSA and GCSB so un-interesting, not anything I care about (cue people getting up in arms about me not caring and how I should care, blah blah blah). Governments spy on people and countries, they do unpleasant things, they always have, they always will, why are all the muppets so surprised ?

Watched a bit of the first video, got bored .. seems to be about some busy body who doesn't wash his hair getting all pissy about technology being used in places he does not agree with (cause he's a "security expert" and knows better than everyone else).

Interesting to see what technology is available to governments to spy and hack machines.

I found the packet injection somewhat scary, this would make it possible to exploit any vulnerable device that communicate over tcp/ip that doesn't encrypt communications in an automated way. Along with how they compromise others devices to do this injection and ensure altered packets reach the target before any legitimate responses can.

Amazing what can be done, and concerning NZ govt has access to the systems that can do this.

I'm sure future generations will thank us for our apathy.. oh wait no they won't.
