U.S. and British Governments Surveilling Communications from Top Internet Companies

June 11, 2013  Security Suite

Servers of nine top Internet companies are reported as being accessed by the U.S. and British governments to track foreign communication. Under a program codenamed PRISM, the National Security Agency, FBI and GCHQ are reportedly conducting in-depth surveillance to track foreign targets’ communications and information stored by U.S. service providers Google®, Facebook®, Microsoft®, Apple®, YouTube®, Yahoo!®, Skype®, AOL® and PalTalk®. Reports reference the FISA Amendments Act of 2008 that permits private companies to voluntarily cooperate with U.S. intelligence. Emails, photographs, audio and video chats, connection logs and other documents are being tapped for security purposes, according to U.S. government officials.
