Signals Snoops Can Read Official E-mail

The TT news bureau reports that several Swedish state agencies may soon find their e-mail monitored by the military signals spies.

The public agencies, as well as more than half of the country’s largest companies, all have their e-mail servers outside Sweden. That means that when the updated law on signals spying goes into effect soon, all their e-mail traffic will be available to the National Defence Radio Establishment, under a law intended to stop terrorism and organized crime.

According to TT, only 45 percent of those agencies and companies encrypt their communications. The main reasons for using e-mail servers outside the country is to take advantage of external spam filters or because international companies want to centralize their operations.
