dilbert: That feeling of over confidence is probably exactly what the FBI is hoping for. That way maybe a few criminals will get a little sloppy. Law enforcement likes low hanging fruit.

New Ways You Are Being Spied On and How To Prevent It
Your appliances could be used to spy on you. Express unpopular opinions and they'll plant child porn on your computer and then bust you for possession of illegal pornography. It's not like it hasn't already happened thousands of times!

FBI Seeks Warrantless Access to Internet Browser Histories :wtf:
It's bad enough what they can do WITH warrants and now they want to bypass even that safeguard?

Private company has database on 'every American adult'
It would be really awesome if highly skilled hackers would target these databases and basically destroy the fuck out of them!

First of all, this only confirms what we already expected. Secondly, the tools are potentially much more powerful than what has been available to hackers before this leak. Hackers can take the source for these tools and make them even more intrusive. Expect some serious issues as a result of this leak.
