The Australian government's cyber security adviser Alastair MacGibbon said on Wednesday that authorities had been able to intercept telephone communications lawfully for nearly 40 years, and needed new powers to keep pace with modern technology.

If by doing this there are "systemic weaknesses" that compromise security for everyone else, the companies won't be required to do so.
