littlekorea writes “The Australian Federal Police (AFP) has requested social networking site Facebook install a law enforcement representative in Australia and introduce some sort of button in which users can immediately report online crime to the police in a single click. It is ‘National Cyber-Security Awareness Week’ in Australia, so the AFP is on an all-out offensive — announcing it is also investigating whether Google committed offences under Australia’s Telecommunications Interception Act when it harvested Wi-Fi data.” Something like this has been in the works for a while.
