UK government apparently hacked foreign diplomats’ BlackBerrys during the 2009 G20 summit through fake internet cafes
Are you a foreign diplomat? Did you visit the 2009 G20 summit? Congratulations, the UK government has most of your passwords and knows where your mistress lives! Thanks to The Guardian some new information has come to light about the UK government surveillance unit, known as the GCHQ, and their doings in light of the recent NSA and PRISM unveilings.

The Guardian has gotten their hands on information detailing how the GCHQ set up fake internet cafes during the 2009 G20 summit in London and used that to spy on foreign diplomats. Through key logging equipment the GCHQ apparently gained access to sensitive information such as passwords and diplomatic conversations. The information was then used during high profile negotiations. Apparently the GCHQ kept most of the information such as passwords in order to perform long term surveillance on the diplomats and politicians.
Not to worry however, no one uses BlackBerrys anymore and a simple password change will likely render the surveillance useless!
