ASIO – Australia’s spy agency are awaiting approval for their plans to monitor suspected terrorist targets which require the utilization of commercial and criminal tactics.
The deployments of viruses or malwares to popular websites are to be uploaded to devices of suspects and innocent viewers to give the agency the ability to access the suspects directly, or through the innocent viewer’s computer devices.
Citizens are potentially third party conduits used to help ASIO monitor suspected targets, and pursue other security interests.
“They’re treating everyone like a terrorists as these infections ultimately allow back-door access” says a resident IT expert.
