Jesus fuckin' Christ....
These guys in the sigint agencies just don't get it, do they? The sigint agencies arrange a legal procedure to get data from tech companies that is very favorable to the sigint agencies, including secret warrants, gag orders on tech companies receiving warrants, courts where there is not opposing council to fight info requests.
Then, not satisfied with that, the sigint agencies go around those procedures to tap fiber-optic links between countries and tech company datacenters directly. This includes the creation of "in your face" powerpoint presos with little smiley faces pointing out where they are screwing over the tech companies by intercepting all this data.
Then, they penetrate tech companies' offerings at the product level, exploiting insecure applications, unencrypted data streams, and gathering tech company customer information, including passwords. Or the sigint agences maintain catalogs showing devices they have developed to compromise name-brand routers, servers, PCs, mobile devices and mobile voice and data service.
Then, not happy with that, they spoof tech companies' offerings to phish for intelligence targets with things like faked LinkedIn, Yahoo! and Facebook pages, all the while gathering data these intelligence targets think they are sharing through these tech companies' offerings.
Then, the sigint agencies work to actively undermine security at the standard-setting level, so they can better penetrate any applications or data relying on these standards.
The result is that the sigint agencies make the entire tech industry look like fools and stooges. By pointing out, exploiting and actively creating vulnerabilities the sigint agencies are actively damaging the brand equity of these companies that employ millions of people around the world. By spoofing these companies' offerings to get intelligence they undermine user certainty that data they are sharing through tech companies is actually going where the user intends it to. Its bad enough that users have to worry about what the tech companies might do with the data, but at least they can terminate a business relationship, but there is no getting rid of a government agency.
THEN, having done all this to damage the tech industry, the sigint agencies complain that that the tech industry is responding by improving security!!!! You know why that is happening, Mr. GCHQ goon?? BECAUSE YOUR AGENCY AND IT'S FRIENDS ARE DOING FAR MORE DAMAGE TO THE TECH INDUSTRY THAN AL QAEDA/ISIL EVERY COULD!!!!!!!!! This is simply a natural defensive response by the tech industry to a group of government agencies who are actively undermining that industry. You'd do the same thing at the GCHQ if the tech industry was actively damaging your organization, so PLEASE SHUT THE HELL UP with your allegations that the tech industry is coddling terrorists.
