    So basically if you are going to get a piece of software or hardware created by a company in Australia it will likely have some sort of a back door built in. And remember that things posted in the app stores can be created in any country so this can and probably will effect things that at least someone you know or deal with has at the very least.

    I should also note that the UK is mentioned in the article and already has a similar law on the books.

    Do not doubt that those back doors exist in all commercially available software already.

    Including in the US. Don't even begin to fool yourself... the war on privacy began long ago, and we (the public) willingly surrendered for the price of a few likes on Farcebook and some followers on Instupidgram.
