NSA Does Not Need Microsoft Windows Crash Reports to Spy on Windows Users, Apple Equally Spy-Friendly
Summary: Apple and Microsoft provide access to their customers’ (useds [sic]) computers, essentially treating customers like enemies
WITH Microsoft’s back doors for the NSA (more examples revealed yesterday by Jacon Appelbaum of Wikileaks), the NSA is taking over Windows users’ entire computer system, accessing their files, webcams, and microphones. If this sounds far-fetched to people, then it means those people are simply not paying attention.
In reports from around 5 years ago, a lot of the above became quite predictable; these reports were routinely revealing that NSA participated in Apple releases of its operating systems (which probably just means adding back doors) and Microsoft releases of Windows, which we already know has back doors.
NSA propaganda channel CBS, which hosted somewhat of a ‘revolving doors’ mole , has just helped Microsoft make a non-denying ‘denial’  about the back door which Microsoft boosters  and pro-Microsoft sites  with shameless pretences  also help deny. Microsoft, the facilitator of NSA back doors, wants to pretend to be angry and surprised by the fact that the NSA infiltrated Windows messages. Microsoft uses broken encryption or no encryption so as to appease the NSA, its special PRISM partner, so only a fool would believe all that spin. In reality, as Glenn Greenwald just put it  (see the article with Vista 7 as the highlight), NSA can “literally watch every keystroke you make” if you use Microsoft Windows.
But let’s not focus only on Windows. Apple too is a rogue company and as we showed yesterday, it's a surveillance-hungry company. iPhone turns out to be somewhat of a Trojan horse too [7-12]. “NSA Has ‘A 100% Success Rate’ Putting Spyware On iPhones” , as one article put it. Appelbaum suspects Apple helped make it so. Only fools would buy Apple products from now on. █
