News that government intelligence agency GCHQ has been intercepting and storing webcam images from 1.8 million users of Yahoo’s chat service under the codename Optic Nerve is a reminder of how close we are to living in a surveillance state.
Unlike some webcam chatrooms that broadcast video the whole time, Face Flow "starts off" as a text chat room with the public and you can only video chat with strangers after you add them as a friend or connect with them through the Find Random Partner button.
Your user profile at Face Flow is more of a social media profile than a simple chat profile.
GCHQ’s main technical achievement was to find a way of scanning this massive amount of data and extracting the webcam images.
While easy to do for a single image, the scale on which GCHQ did this must have taken a great deal of both technical expertise and computing power.
Hackers have been stealing webcam images of unsuspecting users for some time.And what makes the actions of GCHQ unique is the scale on which it is capturing these images.The Edward Snowden leaks revealed that GCHQ is tapping many of the large internet backbone cables that carry hundreds of gigabits of information from computers all over the world every second, including unencrypted Yahoo chat sessions.The second issue GCHQ had was how to store so much data. Only one still image from every five minutes of video was stored.GCHQ’s aim was to view images from known targets (or users with screen names that were similar to known targets).
You can text or broadcast your video to everyone, as well as see anyone else who is publicly broadcasting.
