Pentagon accidentally exposes web-monitoring operation

  H/T Rayra :


   The Department of Defense accidentally exposed an intelligence-gathering operation, thanks to an online storage misconfiguration.





DOD was reportedly collecting billions of public internet posts from social media, news sites, and web forums and storing them on Amazon S3 repositories. But it neglected to make those storage servers private. So anyone with a free Amazon AWS account could browse and download the data, according to Chris Vickery, a security researcher at UpGuard.

OMG, are these people suicidal?  If the NSA cuts off your access to the raw capture...do not try to end-run them...if they find out that is how mysterious deaths and disappearances happen!  Silly DoD wabbits, dirty tricks are for spooks!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled oppression and illusion of freedom.
Irrumabo!  GOP? - Nope. No more. They made their bed, now let them die in it.*
