government’s cybersecurity strategy – Australia

​

Anyone else aware of this?

I know its also a question for social media providers .. like… is facebook agreeing to let the AUS gov take over users accounts.. or are they “hacking” them, in which case would this also be a issue for places like facebook, as the AUS gov would be breaching their TOS ?

What are the new powers?

The bill creates three new types of warrants:

* **Data disruption warrants** enable the AFP and the ACIC to disrupt data by modifying, adding, copying or deleting in order to frustrate the commission of serious offences online
* **Network activity warrants** allow agencies to collect intelligence on serious criminal activity being conducted by criminal networks; and
* **Account takeover warrants** let the AFP and the ACIC take control of a person’s online account and can be combined with other warrants to gather evidence to further a criminal investigation

That bill was rammed through Parliament in 24 hours. I doubt they seriously considered the implementation details or technical ramifications of what they legislated.

Lol they’re not gunna care about facebooks ToS.

Its an attack on the media pure and simple, they dont want scrutiny from a transparent and protected media, now they domt have to worry about it, since they can rewrite the stories and you’re not allowed to report theyve done it.
