The Counter-surveillance resource center is a searchable database of resources on evading targeted surveillance. We want to help anarchists and other rebels acquire a practical understanding of the surveillance threats they may face in their struggles and in their lives. We prefer resources that are easy to understand and written by friends.

"The keylogger was a proper bug, sent to my PC via internet through a virus, and it was capable of intercepting everything around my computer. It was sufficient for the computer to be connected to the internet and the miserable ones were able to hear all audio nearby (no video because the webcam has always been blocked out). So, because I have my PC in my bedroom they listened not only to radio off-line comments but even more... everything in fact!"

(fr) Quelques précisions au sujet du keylogger installé sur mon ordinateur
"Ce keylogger était un vrai mouchard, envoyé via internet à mon ordinateur, sous forme d’un virus, et capable de capter tout ce qui se passait autour de l’ordi. Il suffisait que l’ordinateur soit connecté à internet et les misérables flics pouvaient écouter tout l’environnement sonore dans le lieu (mais pas d’images, car la webcam a toujours été bouchée). L’ordi étant dans la chambre, ils n’ont pas seulement écouté les commentaires hors antenne, mais aussi d’autres choses... tout !"

(it) Alcune precisazioni riguardo al Key-logger installato sul mio computer
"Il keylogger era una vera e propria microspia, inviata tramite rete sotto forma di virus al mio PC, capace di rilevare tutto quello che si trovava nelle vicinanze del computer. Bastava che il PC fosse collegato alla rete internet e i miserabili ascoltavano tutto l’audio dell’ambiente (il video no, perché la webcam è sempre stata tappata). Quindi, avendo il PC in camera da letto non hanno ascoltato solo i commenti fuori onda della radio ma anche altro... anzi tutto!"
