British intelligence like American, only worse
British intelligence was surprised that some of its citizens transmit nudity over the Internet? This must be the same kind of intelligence that failed to see the break up of the Soviet Union coming.

Re: Webcams are hackable too
This demonstrates the problem with grabbing bulk data off the wire. Anyone who has participated in any embarrassing activity captured in digital form on a network-connected device is potentially subject to blackmail by any intelligence agency with the skills to hijack data.

It's too bad that the potential benefits of webcam in education, medicine, and everyday collaboration, may be outshadowed by apprehension over privacy and security.
