FBI says Online Privacy = Pro Terrorism
« on: February 03, 2012, 08:09:43 pm »
A flyer designed by the FBI and the Department of Justice to promote suspicious activity reporting in internet cafes lists basic tools used for online privacy as potential signs of terrorist activity.  The document, part of a program called “Communities Against Terrorism”, lists the use of “anonymizers, portals, or other means to shield IP address” as a sign that a person could be engaged in or supporting terrorist activity.  The use of encryption is also listed as a suspicious activity along with steganography, the practice of using “software to hide encrypted data in digital photos” or other media.  In fact, the flyer recommends that anyone “overly concerned about privacy” or attempting to “shield the screen from view of others” should be considered suspicious and potentially engaged in terrorist activities.

Logging into an account associated with a residential internet service provider (such as Comcast or AOL), an activity that could simply indicate that you are on a trip, is also considered a suspicious activity.  Viewing any content related to “military tactics” including manuals or “revolutionary literature” is also considered a potential indicator of terrorist activity.  This would mean that viewing a number of websites, including the one you are on right now, could be construed by a hapless employee as an highly suspicious activity potentially linking you to terrorism.

There is a picture of the flyer in the link.  Talk about retarded.  Don't they have real crimes to solve?

as someone once said.. the job of the police is only easy in a police state.

Are you fucking kidding me?  So trying to keep your accounts from being compromised is now suspicious?  The fucking hell?

I suppose having a password longer than 6 characters with numbers and special characters is also a sign you might be a terrorist, too! ::)

Okay, I downloaded and looked at the flyer.  I now think this is being blown out of proportion by both the OP and the article.  Shame on you guys for fear-mongering!  The flyer actually makes some good points.

I say that the FBI immediately make all of their confidential documents public.

After all, if they aren't doing anything wrong, then they have nothing to hide, right? Isn't that what they're telling us?

No. No it does not.

From the flyer, the "People Who" first part of the flyer is reasonable however the last 2 bolded topics are less reasonable IMO.  I mean under "Activities on computer" the last one is  "Communicating through a PC Game" When did talking over WoW or Vent while playing a PC game = Terrorist?

Well, in defense of the FBI (god I can't believe I'm saying this), sometimes those "confidential documents" include ongoing investigations, which would be compromised if they were made public.

No. No it does not.

I never said it was perfect. Still, you have to look at the sum of the activities, rather than any single activity.  This would include activity beyond the computer, which the flyer lists.

Can someone post the flyer?  The website isn't displaying it in Opera and I'll be assed if I switch to IE.
