NSA Spying Makes the Internet and Computers LESS Safe

Mass Surveillance Makes Us More Vulnerable to Bad Guys on the Web and On Computers

Spying makes us vulnerable to hackers and other bad guys:

  • IT and security professionals say spying could mess up the safety of our internet and computer systems
  • For example, the Electronic Frontier Foundation notes:

“By weakening encryption, the NSA allows others to more easily break it. By installing backdoors and other vulnerabilities in systems, the NSA exposes them to other malicious hackers—whether they are foreign governments or criminals. As security expert Bruce Schneier explained, ‘It’s sheer folly to believe that only the NSA can exploit the vulnerabilities they create.’”

  • The NSA’s big data collection itself . Remember, the Pentagon itself sees the collection of “big data” as a “national security threat” … but the NSA is the biggest data collector on the planet, and thus provides a tempting mother lode of information for foreign hackers

Read this for other little-known spying facts … including the fact that mass surveillance makes us more vulnerable to terrorists.

  • Ever consider the apparent weakening of overall computer and network security is intentional?

    Let me make a bold prediction. There will be an security incident , then there will be a solution i.e. registration of computing devices ostensibly mandated to protect us.

    Hurricane Karen gets a geoengineered boost …..

    Dry air map….. (geoengineered dry air is in orange) http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/national/satellite-wv

    How they dry the air ….http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e3hutoJOm7U

    The heated air provides lift above the low pressure area establishing a self-reinforcing feedback system that produces tropical disturbances, tropical depressions, tropical storms, and hurricanes.

    This map shows the development of the converging air masses required for hurricane development…. http://www.eldoradocountyweather.com/satellite/ssec/conus-us-composite/conus-color-composite.php You are looking at the upper right corner where Greenland is blacked out (redacted). Geoengineering is taking place over Greenland shoving weather systems backwards toward the Pacific providing the northern converging air mass. Geoengineered storm Atlas provides another …..along with chemtrail activity over the Gulf kicking up the final lift.

        Dodged a bullet….. The geoengineered dry mass in the Gulf to the left of what should have been hurricane Karen, is too dry by incompetence or design. The overtly geoengineered dry air disorganized the rotation instead of lifting it. See the dry air map and notice the deep dark orange air mass (super dry air) to left of TS Karen….. http://www.accuweather.com/en/us/national/satellite-wv
