Cash for Clunkers or Trojan Horse
Last week, Glenn Beck exposed a privacy agreement on the “Cash for Clunkers” website that in part reads:
“This application provides access to the DoT CARS system. When logged on to the CARS system, your computer is considered a Federal computer system and is the property of the U.S. Government.”
What this means is by entering this site you are agreeing to turn your computer and the contents of your harddrive over to the prying eyes of the government – nice.
Today, Glenn Beck updated this info by reporting that the Obama Administration contacted his show telling them that they have taken the web page down and are changing the wording.
Just for grins – what’s the point of changing the wording if the web page was taken down?
This blatant attack on privacy might give the idea that they are testing the waters for future intrusions. It’s like you gotta watch these people every minute.
Is this the same sneaky bunch you might have to trust with your private health care records?
If you don’t use encryption, now might be a good time to start.
