Our government has been building spy-access into the Windows Operating System since the late 1990′s

phonebillDvorak Uncensored – by Eideard

In researching the stunning pervasiveness of spying by the government (it’s much more wide spread than you’ve heard even now), we ran across the fact that the FBI wants software programmers to install a backdoor in all software…Digging a little further, we found a 1999 article by leading European computer publication Heise which noted that the NSA had already built a backdoor into all Windows software:  

A careless mistake by Microsoft programmers has revealed that special access codes prepared by the US National Security Agency have been secretly built into Windows. The NSA access system is built into every version of the Windows operating system now in use, except early releases of Windows 95 (and its predecessors)…

“The first discovery of the new NSA access system was made two years ago by British researcher Dr Nicko van Someren [an expert in computer security]. But it was only a few weeks ago when a second researcher rediscovered the access system. With it, he found the evidence linking it to NSA…

“According to Andrew Fernandez of Cryptonym, the result of having the secret key inside your Windows operating system “is that it is tremendously easier for the NSA to load unauthorized security services on all copies of Microsoft Windows, and once these security services are loaded, they can effectively compromise your entire operating system“. The NSA key is contained inside all versions of Windows from Windows 95 OSR2 onwards…”

We have repeatedly pointed out that widespread spying on Americans began prior to 9/11.

Barry Ritholtz picked this up from Washington’s Blog and as part of his journey as a recovering Republican he’s republished this at his own blog…There certainly aren’t any longtime geeks who are surprised to read details of Microsoft putting in backdoors for the NSA.

    The Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States:

    “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

    The FBI, IRS, DOJ, DHS, NSA, CIA, the Supreme Court, and the White House are no longer a legitimate governing body, having broken their governing contract with the people (the Constitution) on so many occasions, the Federal government has voided its right to govern by breach of contract.

    The fact that every State Government has allowed this to continue on so long a time, renders their governing contract just as void and illegitimate as the Federal Government’s.

    It’s way past time to re-secure our God-given inalienable rights. “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

    The Federal government has declared war on the American people. It’s time to pick up your rifles and defend your country, your homes, and your families. Anyone still working for this government is a traitor to the Constitution and the American People, and they are your enemy. Anyone STILL working for the NSA, FBI, ATF, IRS, Secret Service, or politician that has done nothing about Obama’s fake ID or the government’s transgression of the Constitution should be on your list – and that includes the so-called TEA party “conservative” politicians who have done Nothing to defend the Constitution they swore an oath to defend. The time is now people, or learn to be content in your slavery.

    And all the time we got all those ‘Fat Tuesday’ updates that were huge, now we’re finding out that most of those ‘updates’ were just additions to the spyware on the PC?

    There was also an article about this on several years ago. It has since disappeared.
