Edward Snowden hat dem Guardian ein siebenstündiges Interview gegeben, in dem er unter anderem erzählt hat, wie NSA-Mitarbeiter Nacktbilder von Handys sharen. Nicht überraschend, illustriert aber nochmal angemessen alarmistisch das Ausmaß der illegalen Totalüberwachung durch die Sicherheitsextremisten. Hier ein Videopreview des Interviews, hier eine Zusammenfassung. Das Interview soll heute veröffentlicht werden, ich trag' das dann hier nach. [update] Edward Snowden interview - the edited transcript.

“You've got young enlisted guys, 18 to 22 years old,” Snowden said. “They've suddenly been thrust into a position of extraordinary responsibility where they now have access to all of your private records. In the course of their daily work they stumble across something that is completely unrelated to their work in any sort of necessary sense. For example, an intimate nude photo of someone in a sexually compromising position. But they're extremely attractive.

“So what do they do? They turn around in their chair and show their co-worker. The co-worker says: ‘Hey that's great. Send that to Bill down the way.’ And then Bill sends it to George and George sends it to Tom. And sooner or later this person's whole life has been seen by all of these other people. It's never reported. Nobody ever knows about it because the auditing of these systems is incredibly weak. The fact that your private images, records of your private lives, records of your intimate moments have been taken from your private communications stream from the intended recipient and given to the government without any specific authorization without any specific need is itself a violation of your rights. Why is that in a government database?”

Then Alan Rusbridger, The Guardian’s editor-in-chief, asked: “You saw instances of that happening?”

“Yeah,” Snowden responded.

“Numerous?”

“It's routine enough, depending on the company that you keep, it could be more or less frequent. These are seen as the fringe benefits of surveillance positions."
