Leaked file reveals info about spy services offered by Yahoo

Posted on Monday, December 07 2009 @ 20:19:28 CET by


Yahoo sued whistleblower website Cryptome as a document was leaked that reveals the company's data retention policies and the surveillance capabilities it can provide law enforcement, including a price list that reveals how much money Yahoo charges for these services. The 17-page spying guide was leaked shortly after Yahoo had blocked the FOIA release of its law enforcement and intelligence price list. According to the document, Yahoo charges the government about $30 to $40 for the contents, including e-mail, of a subscriber's account, and about $40 to $80 for the contents of a Yahoo group.
Shortly after Threat Level reported this week that Yahoo had blocked the FOIA release of its law enforcement and intelligence price list, someone provided a copy of the company’s spying guide to the whistleblower site Cryptome.

The 17-page guide describes Yahoo’s data retention policies and the surveillance capabilities it can provide law enforcement, with a pricing list for these services. Cryptome also published lawful data-interception guides for Cox Communications, SBC, Cingular, Nextel, GTE and other telecoms and service providers.
