  1. British Spies Intercepted Users’ Sexually Explicit Webcam Images

    Britain’s surveillance agency GCHQ collected webcam images of nearly two million people via Yahoo chat, according to the latest Snowden revelations. The operation, known as Optic Nerve, has been described as the most far-reaching attack on net privacy to date. It aimed to create a massive image database, primarily including individuals not suspected of any wrongdoing. The program was developed with NSA assistance and is not forbidden from targeting Americans. The information gathered includes a large store of sexually explicit images. It seems the state is now — quite literally — in the bedroom.
