RIOT Cyber Tracking: Locating YOU, Anytime, Anywhere

An incredibly nosy new software has been developed by the company Raytheon. The software, called Riot, uses social media to track and predict a person’s every move. According to the UK Guardian, “Raytheon’s Riot program mines social network data like a ‘Google for spies’”.


Russia Today reported on the disturbing implications of the software:

Using public websites for law enforcement is considered legal in most countries, and Riot will be of interest to intelligence and national security agencies. In February last year the FBI requested that it wanted to develop ways of mining social media sites for monitoring “bad actors or groups”.

This has prompted concern from civil liberties groups about online privacy. Ginger McCall, an attorney at the Washington-based Electronic Privacy Information Center, said Riot raised concerns about how an individual’s data could be collected covertly without oversight or regulation.

“Users may be posting information that they believe will be viewed only by their friends, but instead it is being used by government officials or pulled in by data collection services like the Riot search,” McCall told The Guardian.

But Raytheon defended its product and in an email to the Guardian Jared Adams, a spokesman for the company’s intelligence and information systems department, said it would help to meet the US’s rapidly changing security needs.He also highlighted that it does not analyze personally identifiable information, such as bank details or social security numbers.

In December Raytheon indicated that Riot would be part of a patent the company is pursuing for a system designed to gather data from social networking sites and blogs to identify if someone is a national security risk.

The release of this software coincides with the expected announcement of yet another Executive Order on Tuesday. President Obama has hinted that CISPA, which did not pass congress, will be passed using his highly overworked executive authority.

CISPA allows for the voluntary sharing of information about internet traffic between private companies and the government. Its intention is to assist the intelligence service in identifying  and neutralizing cyber and hacking attacks and to ensure the security of networks against attack …Opponents of the bill say it will allow government to track an individuals browsing information, allowing them to spy on individuals at will.

    An allegience between corrupt corporations that want our money and scum government officials that want to control us in my view is a bad idea. I do not know how/why people are so blind.

        EMP. Suite me just fine. According to the Internet,:-),(statefarm commercial) one can make small portible EMP generators. I was kinda thinkin it might be a decoy, to scare folks away. Nah, GOV done got their meat hooks into everything. I’ve heard a couple highprofile patriots exclaim that a major EMP or CME event may be our only saving grace.

        The fix is beyond the ballot box. Semper Fi. III

    Just yesterday, one of the uber spying thru cell phone technology corporations announced that they’re making a phone with phone apps. Hmmm…in other words, they’ve now figured out a way to spy on you even when you go to the toilet and sleep (for those of us who still even shower and sleep with our old-fashioned time pieces on). When I made that comment on the forum that published ‘the good news’ I was eaten alive by the sheep that were posting there. They simply couldn’t believe their good fortune at the news and immediately jumped on me with all kinds of pro-corporation drivel.
