If this gets enforced, then EU countries should do the same for US visitors, should make interesting reading for EU vetting agencies going through Trumps and other US elite bank accounts and social media !

Sure go ahead, also make sure that IP's of public organisations are supplied and then when tracked back to access dates/times and the active logins from that machine are published, so we know which MP is exercising when they should be working !

Well if the Court of Appeal get the final say, they will rubber stamp it for the spooks. Not like we are trying to deport a terrorist, rapist or radical nutcase or anything and they will bend over backwards to block this if a cat is involved !

US-CERT's top tip: Hack your crap Netgear router before miscreants arrive

Wolfclaw
Bronze badge

Should be made compulsory for all consumer products that have an internet connection to go through a paid security audit to ensure nothing as stupid as this can happen. Manufacturers will soon get their act together when a product fails and they have to pay again to get verified.
