Well, yea it has become a joke actually. Mumbai Police is back with their mind blowing idea to stop terrorist activities..
They have decided to install keyloggers in 500 cyber cafes to monitor all the activities aka to read everyone’s mails, login to everyone’s personal accounts (including bank account), read everyone’s chat messages and what not..
I have no idea why they are still in impression that every terrorist is dumb and is going to email like this “Tomorrow, plant the bomb at xx place”… lol… and if at all they used to mail these kind of stuff openly in simple words, then they are definitely going to stop after reading about this “invention” by Mumbai Police..
According to Mumbai Police, if terrorists carry these activities from their home, they can be caught. But why Mumbai Police is still unaware about the proxy servers?
Some of the quotes from the article:
Vijay Mukhi, President of the Foundation for Information Security and Technology says, â€œThe terrorists know that if they use machines at home, they can be caught. Cybercafes therefore give them anonymity.â€
â€œThe police needs to install programs that will capture every key stroke at regular interval screen shots, which will be sent back to a server that will log all the data.
The Mumbai police are in dialogue with M/s Micro Technologies for procuring a software called CARMS (Cyber Access Remote Monitoring System), a powerful monitoring tool that seeks to curb cyber crime.
CARMS monitors web browsing, file transfers, news, chats, messaging and e-mail, including all encoded attachments. In a sensitive environment, CARMS can also be used to restrict user or group access to only approved external and internal sites, explained a company official.
This is what they have to say about privacy:
â€œThe question we need to ask ourselves is whether a breach of privacy is more important or the security of the nation. I do not think the above question needs an answer,â€ said Mukhi. â€œ
God save my country!!
