French spy used darknet to sell access to national mass-surveillance databases

Who needs hackers when the caretakers happily sell out your data.

Now that this has utterly failed to protect individuals’ privacy in France, every other country will just blindly continue to implement something similar. I can’t wait for the news articles about Australia’s My Health Record abuse.

How is every “dark net” site not a government sting operation by now?

And occasional cutout until it’s rolled up.
