    Report: U.K. spy agency collected Yahoo webcam images

    Britain's surveillance agency GCHQ, aided by the National Security Agency, has intercepted and stored the webcam images from millions of Yahoo chats by users who were not being targeted for any wrongdoing, The Guardian reports, quoting from secret documents.

    Why are you surprised?

    We pay them to be intelligent. We pay them to watch us. We pay them to protect us from the nasty people out there.

    To be fair you didn't make any comment yourself so why should anyone else bother? Threads with just raw information and no angle from the OP will tend not to trigger as much response.

    Not exactly breaking news since it came out last week.

    But as for a comment.. kinda expected that they did this... after all they found backdoors in computers to activate camera's without the "light" showing them as on. I believe Macs have this backdoor, and that is why we got some nakid celebs at home pictures out there.. there was some cases.

    Okay they either totally low balled that number or dick pics are not considered undesirable nudity.

    One secret document estimated that 3% to 11% of the Yahoo webcam imagery snared by GCHQ contains "undesirable nudity."
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    "Undesirable nudity?" I'm not familiar with this concept.
