Breaking News

Finally it has been confirmed that National Security Agency (NSA) has approached the owner of the Boston based Nepali community website for monitoring of data that the website has generated in last two years. Although, it might come as a surprise for many people that such a small website would have much significance in the national security issue, NSA thinks otherwise. The sources of the leak are somewhat tied to another DC based Nepalese Community website which is yet to be released.

Looking at the track record, FISA Court has rejected only 0.03 percent of the total government surveillance requests. "www.sajha.com" and its subsidiaries however fall into Prism program which allows NSA to obtain information without having to obtain individual court orders.

Details include request to add a cron job into the server that would facilitate transfer of the encrypted chat logs daily to the NSA. It also includes request to add user profiling mechanism such as  KISSMetrics that allows to profile person's interaction on website. The profiling program is not limited to just social interaction such as likes, surfing pattern,  exit method. The tracking program requests also include logs of user IP addresses, device type that are being used to access the website, browser name and version, etc.

Surprisingly, it was also found NSA has warned the website owner not to indulge into tracking of the user or publicly revealing the ability to do so for personal issues. The NSA has also directed to deny any allegations of surveillance  and threatened to take actions if it continues.
