This is about Internet security, our Internet security. It's not about "politics"óbut if moderators deem this to be "politics" so be it. As we all know, government spying via the Internet is a big problem; and it would seem nobody's talking about it in here, a message board devoted to helping those who seek to keep malware at bay. If there's a thread on this board addressing government-spying malware, please send this post there. Thank you.

It's my understanding government malware happily rides into our personal computing systems via either deals with manufacturers of hardware/software or by stowing away aboard otherwise-innocent hardware/software. So ... can these invasions of our personal computing systems by such malware be detected? Can they be blocked? Can this sort of malware be removed? Is anyone actually working on this matter? It's difficult to know whom to trust....
