Oz passes cyber snooping laws with global implications…

“Brushing off warnings from tech giants that the laws would undermine internet security, MacGibbon said they would be similar to traditional telecommunications intercepts, just updated to take in modern technologies” writes Glenda Kwek for yahoo.com. National cyber security adviser Alastair MacGibbon said police have been “going blind or going deaf because of encryption” used by suspects.There has been extensive debate about the laws and their reach beyond Australia’s shores in what is seen as the latest salvo between global governments and tech firms over national security and privacy.”We now have a situation where unprecedented powers to access encrypted communications are now law, even though parliament knows serious problems exist,” it said in a statement.
