hypnosec (2231454) writes "A new report published by Parliament's Intelligence and Security Committee, UK shows how the country is planning to spy on its netizens as they use services such as Facebook, Twitter, Skype and the likes. According to the government, in a bid to fight against terrorism and other crimes, swift access to communications data is required through the use of latest technological innovations. The UK plans to install 'probes' along the communications network in a bid to log everything from web surfing data to Skype calls."
