Students Sue Google For Monitoring Their Email

In a challenge to one of Google’s more controversial practices, a group of students in California are suing Google, claiming that the company’s monitoring of Gmail violates federal and state privacy laws.

The U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California is currently hearing the complaint from nine students whose emails were subject to Google surveillance because Gmail is a component of Apps for Education. Apps for Education is a suite of free, web-based education tools that has some 30 million users worldwide, most of whom are students under 18 exposed to the software via their schools.

  1. Hacking rules :-
    1. Never damage any system. This will only get you into
    trouble.
    2. Never alter any of the systems files, except for those
    needed to insure that you are not detected, and those to
    insure that you have access into that computer in the
    future.
    3. Do not share any information about your hacking
    projects with anyone but those you’d trust with your life.
    4. When posting on BBS’s (Bulletin Board Systems) be as
    vague as possible when describing your current hacking
    projects. BBS’s CAN be monitered by law enforcement.
    5. Never use anyone’s real name or real phone number
    when posting on a BBS.
    6. Never leave your handle on any systems that you hack
    in to.
    7. DO NOT hack government computers.
    8. Never speak about hacking projects over your home
    telephone line.
    9. Be paranoid. Keep all of your hacking materials in a safe
    place.
    10. To become a real hacker, you have to hack. You can’t
    just sit around reading text files and hanging out on
    BBS’s. This is not what hacking is all about…
