Any company /country /research that can influence national security is on intrest of an agency working on national security. i studied some US gov report related to the recent bombing in india and concluded US government will/have offer india to build wholesale survillance capability. News?

Internet is full of examples about Intl agencies run decoy business, bought 0-days, have approached businesses for over a century now to comply on their intrest and so on.

it was on the interest of law inforcement agencies for Windows OS to leaks behind so much of digital forensic fingerprints on the network and on the system compared to linux. Coincidence :)?

Any business, so be it Certification Authority or ISP or an antivirus company or any WEB company if holds data/information to influence national security then it will likely be approached/influenced by a national security agency already.

Let me give you an example, antivirus companies can easily (likely) track you even if you are behind a TOR network. Periodic auto updates, unique Serial key per machine, other uniq system identifiable information, defination update status, quarentine files, anonymous AV scan log, system clock etc can all act like "super cookie" to identify your identity. Imazine how many of them work as a frontend for fed's ?

just some thoughts...
