Skip to comments.NSA stores all collectable browsing data for 365 days, new leak reveals

A new leak published by The Guardian reveals more details about the NSA's Marina metadata program, including the program's ability to look back at a full year of metadata for millions of web users, regardless of whether the users are the target of an investigation. The metadata can include anything from browsing history to more detailed account activity in the case of web-based email, including contact lists and potentially even account passwords.
The Marina program had been mentioned in previous leaks, but the new revelations, pulled from an NSA training document, show how the data was centrally stored and managed. Much of the data is coming from previously reported programs, like PRISM's bulk FISA orders or GHCQ's undersea cable-tapping operations. Once collected, the data is put to build detailed graphs of a person's known associates and social activity, a process referred to in the document as "pattern-of-life development."
Don’t you feel safer? They are hell on wheels on their lovers/spouses though.
An OCCUPIED country, but only the occupiers knew it...?
Will be interesting to see how the history books eventually deal with Mr. Snowden. If the Under 30 crowd has anything to say about it he’ll end up on a pedestal next to Thomas Paine and Patrick Henry.
Interesting how both of those luminaries sort of faded out of the history books (the former because of his controversial religious opinions, the latter because he distrusted the increased centralized power of the new Constitution).
Big brother is watching ping
Well, I must be an interesting person to follow as I copy and paste people, places and things into my search bar after reading an article. If I do not know the person, I search to read about them. If I do not know an area, I search for a map of the place to look around. Just stuff like that.
Can we get our computer data back from them if our hard drive goes down?
Kind of like Carbonite?
LOL. A neighbor has a manikin for home security. Has it standing looking out a second floor window. When I searched the word “manikin” to find out where to buy one, I found mostly gay or adult sites. Never found cost or where to pick up one.
You guys do realize that some of the data collected by the NSA is attorney/client protected in criminal and civil suits right?
You do understand that the data collected is being accessed by prosecutors involved in those criminal cases. Apparently, there is hard evidence of this.
I can’t wait to see how .gov handles THIS.
Data is specific information. Such as “John Jones has a 1968 Chevelle”
Metadata is “we have 14,000,000 records containing information such as name, make and year of car”
Email header data is sender, receiver, time sent and received. This is what they call “metadata.” It is not. It is data.
Search terms are not metadata. Search terms are data.
In other words, they lied.
Anybody have better definitions and can add or subtract from this?
We used to move around an old manikin out at the weekend place. LOL, the screams when someone would find it in the doorway or in bed.
I have a ceramic turtle that I’d move a few times a year. The cat would totally freak out!!! Oh, no! It’s alive!!!! Hissssss! Snarl!
This shows you to be an intellectually active and curious individual. That makes you dangerous to the NEW LEFTIST COLLECTIVE. Expect communications soon directing you to the nearest re-education center.
/no sarcasm, it'll happen.
Suppose you do a lot of searches. A lot of research about many topics. You’re intellectually curious. You read a lot of news sites. You travel a lot. You teach 8th grade science, and buy a lot of fun things that you use in science class.
You will probably fit one of the profiles that these birdbrains are searching for.
