Until not long ago we all thought that intrusion and Internet surveillance capabilities were possessed exclusively by a handful of nations. However the uprisings of the Arab Spring shed the light on an emerging market of so called 'lawful interception' solutions produced and sold by private Western companies, largely exposed in WikiLeaks' SpyFiles, sometimes responsible of empowering oppressive regimes with such invasive surveillance systems that citizens could do nothing to challenge. This is a tale that starts one year ago in a small island near the shores of the Persian Gulf and ends up exposing the ubiquity of commercialized surveillance software and a $5 billion market made of trade shows and spearphishing.
