KGB Wants Control of Email and VOIP

blair1q writes “The FSB (really just a rebadged KGB) is worried about the abilities that internet communications services such as Hotmail, Gmail, and Skype give to people they consider black-hats. In particular, they don’t like the fact that these services allow encryption. They say they aren’t going to seize or block them, yet, but are just ‘studying’ the situation, with an eye possibly toward implementing controls like those in China. Their increased interest in the tools may be related to a DDoS attack on Russian President Dmitri Medvedev’s own LiveJournal account, which he termed ‘revolting and illegal.’”
