Your Rights Online: Denials Aside, Feds Storing Body Scan Images on Wednesday August 04, @12:36PM Posted by timothy on Wednesday August 04, @12:36PM from the we-are-neither-amused-nor-surprised dept. background: url(//a.fsdn.com/sd/topics/topicprivacy.gif); width:71px; height:53px; privacy The new generation of body scanners employed at airports (and many other places) can record detailed, anatomically revealing pictures of each person scanned, which is one reason they've raised the hackles of privacy advocates as well as ordinary travelers. Now, AHuxley writes "The US Transportation Security Administration claimed last summer that 'scanned images cannot be stored or recorded.' It turns out that some police agencies are storing the controversial images. The US Marshals Service admitted that it had saved ~35,314 images recorded with a millimeter wave system at the security checkpoint of a single Florida courthouse. The images were stored on a Brijot Gen2 machine. The Electronic Privacy Information Center, an advocacy group, has filed a lawsuit asking a federal judge to grant an immediate injunction to stop the TSA's body scanning program."
