Submission + - "Lawful spying" price lists leaked ( 1

ogaraf writes: Wired has a story about how the site Cryptome leaked the price lists for "lawful spying" activities of Yahoo and other companies, and subsequently received a DMCA takedown notice from Yahoo. The documents are however still online and in them you can learn for instance that IP logs last for one year, but the original IPs used to create accounts are kept since 1999. The contents of your Yahoo account are bought for $30 to $40 by law enforcement agencies.

"Lawful spying" price lists leaked

  • This is misinterpreted. The point of the cost is to make it *hard* for law enforcement to serve excessively broad subpoenas. "Give me the contents of every account that participated in this group" is more expensive than the investigator is authorized to spend.
