1 - Posted as AC? If you can't put your name next to your statements, STFU, coward.
2 - The CIA's job is to spy. Evidently, they use vulnerabilities discovered in software to do that.
3 - After re-reading your response, I can see why you'd post as AC. If you were any more dense you'd achieve spontaneous fission. That drivel isn't something I'd want my name next to, either.
4 - Again, it's not the CIA's responsibility to uphold the privacy rights of citizens and, until you post links to or the directive(s)/regulation(s) themselves stating it "is" their responsibility, refer to #1 & #2 above.
5 - Stop releasing shitty code full of holes.

...Even spy agencies like the CIA have a responsibility to protect the security and privacy of Americans.

Section 202 of the National Security Act of 1947 established the CIA, and nowhere in the charter does it state it's their responsibility to protect the privacy of Americans.

I'm no hosting/cloud service provider. I have a pretty solid rig outfitted with a boot SSD, 6 Mechanical drives, and a BluRay burner.

I bought six of the 4TB Seagates when they first came out and all but one had died by the fall of last year. I replaced the 4Tb Seagates with 8GB HGSTs the first day I could, and all have been working fine since installation. (though I did have a problem getting one of the HGST drives recognized by the OS (Win 8.1 Pro x64)
