Subject: ASIO wants Permission to Break into Home



Scary news from hackernews:

The Australian Security and Intelligence Organization wants a widening of
its powers so that its agents may 'hack' into personal home computers.
These new powers will include the ability to manipulate data so that their
entry may not be detected as well as breaking encryption around data that
they want to see.
