Julian Assange: “You’re all screwed”

02 Dec

From: http://uk.news.yahoo.com/assange-warns-phone-monitoring-153732281.html

The whistle-blowing website has released details of companies it says are selling information obtained by monitoring people’s mobile phones and computers.

According to Mr Assange, more than 150 organisations around the world have the ability to use phones as tracking devices as well as intercept messages and listen to calls. Those companies then sell the wholesale information, often the telecommunications data of “entire populations”.

Mr Assange said this interception, although lawful, is leading towards a “totalitarian surveillance state”.

WikiLeaks is releasing 287 documents in conjunction with website spyfiles.org.
