Submission + - Did Skype tip the government about NSA leak? (muktworld.com) 2

sfcrazy writes: Glen Greenwald recently told the world that Edward Snowden has NSA documents encrypted and distributed to a few key people — and it will be decrypted if anything happens to him. Another aspect of the story which was overlooked was that when Glen told his colleague that he would send some documents to him his (the colleague's) laptop was stolen after two days. Glen gave this info about sending document to his colleague over Skype. Does that mean that Microsoft is working with the government to let them spy on people? Not surprising Microsoft recently patented a technology to just that.

Did Skype tip the government about NSA leak?

Comments Filter:
  • A: The FSB has claimed that they are able to tap skype calls,


    and B: Skype (Mirosoft) is in the list of cooperating companies in Snowdens PRISM disclosure. If A and B are true, C: it is likely that ALL skype calls are either actively intercepted in real time or logged for voice and language analysis later (probably minutes later) (In fiction this is a central part of a 'Project Black Briar')

    If that doesn't give you the willies and make you clutch your laptop and hide under the bed, well try this on for siz

  • Someone please make a windows program that blocks skype traffic, kills skype installs, uninstalls it, and prevents it forever existing.

    Haha, MS, hope NSA paid you the $9b

    Maybe people should use ytalk via ssh to a server in iceland next time.

    Seriously, why trust skype, use irc or old school voice party line aka 80s
