According to a blog post by Neal Ungerleider from Monday Jan 10, 2011 the Tunsinian Government may be harvesting or hacking information from Gmail accounts and or Facebook accounts.

This goes to show the moment it is in the “cloud” it is no longer private. If you want something private, encrypt it. Most of us at the ISC follow the “front page” rule. If you write it, treat it like the information is on the front page of your national newspaper.

Going back to last year, the US National Security Agency considers their network untrustworthy.
