Petraeus: Poster child for email privacy

November 30, 2012

One of its supporters, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, blasted out to followers Thursday a lengthy explanation as to how the FBI was able to trace email back to Paula Broadwell, who had been allegedly harassing Jill Kelley under a pseudonym. EFF's larger point: There's a disparity in the law.
"Sound confusing? It is. ECPA is hopelessly out of date, and fails to provide the protections we need in a modern era," the group acknowledged. "Your email privacy should be simple: it should receive the same protection the Fourth Amendment provides for your home."
