Tl;dr: Some Lolcats have set sail again and looted some swag from Australian shores. Skip this section to grab the loot. Now, we all know that it is no secret that you are spying on the internet activities of your citizens. But for a change we can present some evidence, which is always nice to have, or so we hear.
Anyway, so far can present 27mb of compressed data, but most importantly we want to direct your attention to the file dsdweb-tracking.mdb. This file gives us some insights on how the Australian government was monitoring its citizens activity. Let us explain what you see here:
