Legal And yes, the PRISM scandal is far, far from over. More and more information keeps leaking out, and the more gets out, the worse it gets. The companies involved have sent out official statements - often by mouth of their CEOs - and what's interesting is that not only are these official statements eerily similar to each other, using the same terms clearly designed by lawyers, they also directly contradict new reports from The New York Times. So, who is lying?

Member since:

I'll repeat what I've written in the previous thread.

Even if these lies were true, the mere fact that some employees of Google, Facebook and others have access to that information is very dangerous. There is no reason to trust them more than the CIA.

They say they refuse to share that information with governments, not that they don't exploit that information themselves.

I doubt Zucker and Page and other actually know how many US and foreign "agents" are working in their premises.

The solutions : Distributed servers (a compromised server must not give access to everything), self hosting, encryption everywhere (they don't need to know the content, just transfer it for decryption on the endpoint).
