disheartening but at least in print

WoW! There is quite an article in the New York Times today about the Mexican gov't using spyware to go after people who want to fight corruption. Really amazing. The article heading is:
"Using Texts as Lures, Government Spyware Targets Mexican Activists and Their Families"

$65000 per iPhone hacked. Man that is big business. I guess governments can afford it? :roll:

There are now two articles today in Mexico News Daily and one in El Universal (English). In Mexico News Daily there is also an interesting article about a Nahua woman from Chiapas who will be running for president. Really unbelievable about the govt getting caught at spying on the good guys. Wow!

Don't know what NOTB but I can imagine. Think what you want. Any place in the world with a decent government would get to the bottom of this and hold people accountable. Assuming a free press and decent judicial system.
