Re: IT security and Icebergs?
Agreed. We've only seen some tricks from a primary school kids IT project. This is nothing compared to what the big boys school can do.
Although I will say one thing. having worked with the UK police I think peoples views on how they operate is all wrong. If anything the UK police are the only ones I've seen who have rules for doing any of this sort of 'surveillance' on a suspect, rules they follow too. Ok you might get a bad egg police man who abuses his position, you get that in all walks of life, but on the whole they follow procedure, which by the way, includes a court issued warrant to carry out the 'surveillance'.
Same can't be said for other UK agencies, but the police I will defend, slightly, they are still the police after all!
