Allready posted and closed about a week ago. Somebody beat ya to it. Drat. I guess I gotta get more on the ball, how could I have possibly missed a thread here on THR. Seriously, I found it on another forum and this one is so thorough so I should have figured that someone beat me to it. Oh well, I guess one more go then.

they alway could, the NSA contracts with the Canadians(the Canadian connection is there because it is illeagle to SPY on ones own countrymen in America) they use a program called CARNIVORE, if I remember correctly, it looks for KEYWORDS and phrases in transmitted data, Ie Cell phone traffic, and internet traffic, etc... which is why abdicating big rash moves via the phone or internet can get you a very unpleasent interview
or so I have heard, and read.:what:

Of course it must be true. I'm sure that there are 3000 FBI techs sitting in darkened cubicles surrounded by empty cans of Jolt and bags of Cheetos, watching for the bad words.:rolleyes:
Of course I know that Carnivore is an actual program, but think about the vastness of the internet; I'm not gonna lose sleep over it!
Besides, the FBI is there to protect me, right?;)

Makes me think of the joke where the guy goes to see his doctor for an annual physical and the doctor is stunned to find that the guy's wee-wee is orange. The doctor thinks he has discovered some rare malady that will make him a known name in the medical journals.

After several tests which reveal nothing the guy finally admits his favorite past time is eating Cheetos and watching X-rated movies.

The thought of FBI agents eating Cheetos and panting over e-mail monitors makes me giggle.

So, let me see if I understand this. The FBI, which operates within our borders, has a facility in Canada to monitor Internet traffic that, because of the way routers work, the vast majority of which wouldn't even make it there?

The FBI is digesting the terabytes of data that traverse the net every hour looking for naughty words, analyzing the context in real time, and, through some sort of reverse address mapping black-hat magic, associating that back to an individual?

Simultaneously, they're listening to the millions upon millions of inane telephone conversations listening for naughty words, analyzing the context and cross referencing that with the naughty words used on the internet?

All in real time?

And you believe this because, wait for it, someone wanted to create a funny use for common public domain java toy?

Somebody watches WAY too much TV and pays WAY too much attention to the morons who call themselves reporters. These guys can't even get the simple facts on gun issues correct. What makes you think they're even close when it comes to InfoSec, one of the most complex technical challenges out there? :rolleyes:

Sounds to me like someone has mixed up their top-secret-gov't programs-with-vaguely-threatening-sounding-names.

Carnivore is the FBI program installed at your ISP for monitoring internet traffic.

Echelon is the uber-secret international program in which allied nations spy on each other using super-sophistcated gear that sniffs out keywords in not only internet transactions, but also every phone call, fax, and transmission made, and then analyzes it, handing off stuff that's flagged to the aforementioned analysts with Jolt and Cheetos.


:rolleyes:

No, I don't believe in Echelon, or the tooth fairy, either.
