UK's spy tools and processes [at least some] revealed

A list has been leaked online of some of the UK's spy agency (GCHQ) cyber-spy tools and techniques. There are interesting names for various techniques, software, tools, and verbs involved in these spying processes. Over 100 projects are listed. There's debate in the UK about how legal it is for the GCHQ to collect so much data on so many people and the techniques used, just as in the US there is debate about the NSA. My guess is these are older projects and there are newer projects and methods and  acronyms already in use. Read more about it here http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-28306819
