    The US Navy Wants Your Game Saves

    I’ve read this story three times now. I still don’t quite believe it. It seems that the United States Navy is spending $177,237.50 to hire a company called Obscure Technologies.
    The contract is to develop hardware and software tools capable of extracting data from videogame consoles and compile a report outlining how they did it and what issues they encountered. Presumably, “invasion of privacy” and “infringement of civil liberties” will be listed fairly high up in the “issues” column.
    This project involves furnishing video game systems, both new and used, and creating prototype rigs for capturing data from the video game systems
    The official listing for the contract is brazen in its directives. The final destination for the project is with the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology.
    Apparently, Obscure Technologies were awarded the contract because they’re the only US company that currently purchases used computer equipment and mines it for data.
    Source: Threatpost, via the US Navy. Thanks, James Kirk
