backdoor w7 sp1
you guys seem to have redacted all information about the nsa mandated backdoor and spyware in sp1 for W7.
a site had info about a W7 install disk,
This site earlier had info about the backdoor in sp1 for W7, Tech ARP - ED#118 : Spyware In Microsoft Windows 7
Actually that was an April Fool's joke...
Sept 2012 US House passes the Warrantless Spying Bill.
Nov 2009 "NSA involved only in security compliance standards" re NSA helped with W7 development
Part of the mission of domestic NSA is surveillance (widespread cameras, immunity for ISP that narc on their customers, documentation of emails, text messages and key-word voice communications) but of course the NSA would never implement a process to track and monitor "terrorist/suspicious" activities using the core Operating System.
They never did that in the past (e.g. Cisco's "lawful intercept" capabilities, US legislation to shield ISP from criminal complicity to spy and forward requested information about their subscribers, target/identify perpetrators of sharing copyrighted video/music/software, Clipper chip project backdoor access to encrypted data, 1960s and later Echelon, 2007 Carnivore)
According to Marc Rotenberg, the executive director of the Electronics Privacy Information Center (EPIC), the NSA's involvement with operating system development goes back even farther. "This battle goes back to at least the crypto wars of the early '90s," said Rotenberg, who remembered testifying about the agency's role in private sector computer security standards in 1989.
2008 Microsoft may have inadvertently disclosed a potential Microsoft backdoor for law enforcement...
1999 A CARELESS mistake by Microsoft programmers has revealed that special access codes prepared by the US National Security Agency have been secretly built into Windows...
Of course the US government would never ever spy on and indefinitely detain it's citizens. Especially since the US confines the world's largest % of it's domestic population in prisons (many run for profit, the more prisoners the more profit!)
So the disinformation spin regarding exposure of backdoors in computer operating systems, yea right; the US government would never do that, never has, never will!
This is why if you really want to be secure, you should go Linux. Or protect your Windows PC by using TrueCrypt and keeping it offline.
