Re: GCHQ has backdoors into your LAN ..
From the NetworkWorld article:
"When asked for comment, BT responded to CSO with a statement saying, "We comply with the law wherever we operate and do not disclose customer data in any jurisdiction unless legally required to do so.""
This from the company that brought you Stratis Scleparis (senior man at BT Retail and then senior man at Phorm) and also denied they were using Phorm.
Sorry BT, you destroyed your zero credibility with "assurances" like that. Wise people don't believe you.
It's not that long since anyone suggesting that NSA/GCHQ were doing mass interceptions would have been accused of being a conspiracy theorist. Given what we now know, I don't have any problem in principle with the concept that BT are capable of doing dodgy dealings on a grand scale.
Whether the latest VDSL modem accusations have any credibility is a different story. John Naismith and the AAISP's Revd Kennard say they haven't, so who am I to disagree.
