Titled Operation Karma Police, the project allegedly collects information about internet users across the UK. 
 
The Daily Mail reports that leaked documents claim the operation has successfully managed to collect the browsing history, instant messages and emails of millions of internet users in order to assess any potential risks. 
 
Apparently, "224,446 different IP addresses" were scanned.

Radiohead have yet to comment on the naming of the project.
