Researcher connects dots on spy agency’s monitoring of WiFi

If you want to get an insight into the sweep of modern spying check out what Bill Robinson has just posted. The London, Ont.-based researcher behind the “Lux Ex Umbra” blog has literally connected the dots on an Edward Snowden leak.

Remember the CBC story last winter about how Canadian spies kept tabs on devices that had used WiFi at an undefined Canadian airport? According to Mr. Robinson’s deduction, this was almost certainly Toronto’s Pearson International.
