Internet Security back on the agenda

Post by Sathias » 30 Apr 2018, 07:17

I thought I'd raise this as I haven't seen it get as much coverage as the metadata debate. There are plans to allow the ASD (Australian Signals Directorate), which is part of Peter Dutton's new super-ministry, the ability to access the emails, text messages and bank records of all Australian citizens without their knowledge.

I just assumed that even now if they really wanted that stuff they'd take it regardless.

The setup the article talks about does sound worrying though.

And here comes a VPN to save the day :D

I just bought it. PureVPN, offering their 5 Year plan at 88% OFF. This means you only pay $79 for 60 whole months of VPN service!

Check it out and grab it from here: https://www.purevpn.com/vpn-deals/cybermonday

Nice shilling, but a VPN won't save you if they get the emails, SMS and bank records directly from the companies that hold them.

I love how people just think a VPN is safe, if the FBI can coopt and run a TOR node for years then they can do the same to a VPN company.
