MaS is about computer security, malware and spam issues in general.
The the BBC article, Assurances over US biometric data, "Mr [Thomas] Bush told the BBC that innocent people would have nothing to fear from the database". Yeah, and I have a bridge to sell you too! How can they say that with a straight face after all the recent corporate and governmental data loss.
I don't want to say that it is easy to implement security that prevents the misuse of such data, but it can be done to a degree, but I doubt that it is happening.
So, we are going to risk our data over a pretty dubious undertaking. Sigh.
