Is our data safe?

Written by Dave Nicholls. Tags: , , ,

It seems that hackers might not be the greatest danger to your data.

Apparently, Microsoft has helped the US National Security Agency to get around its own security systems and allowed access to all it’s main products. The report on the BBC news site claims that the NSA had access to Hotmail,, Skydrive and Skype.

Microsoft say that they were legally required to help the NSA.

It’s difficult to believe a massive multinational like Microsoft would be bothered by legal threats. If they really cared about users privacy, wouldn’t they fight it or at least make it public? It suggests quite a cosy relationship between Governments and big business.

Exactly how much data was provided to the NSA is unclear. It probably isn’t the detail of absolutely every email or message from every user, it would just be too much to process.
