Bringing internet snooping to book - blogspot

http://lardnessbre nt.blogspot.ca/201 3/07/bringing-inte rnet-snooping-to-b ook-topix.html abney and associates hong kong news,bringing internet snooping to book Revelations that GCHQ and the NSA have tapped into the internet on a huge scale have rightly provoked outrage. But intelligence analysts aren't the only ones likely to be tempted by the captured information. The internet has transformed our relationship with information – and with the world – in ways that continue to surprise us. That may appear to many readers, especially those below the age of thirty, as a statement of the blindingly obvious but I think it can bear repetition. The latest evidence for the transformative power of the web comes from the explosion of outrage detonated by Edward Snowden's revelations that the NSA and GCHQ have been tapping into online activity on an unprecedented scale and with little apparent legal, congressional or parliamentary oversight. The extent of the snooping, which has targeted friend and foe alike, has upset many. Our allies in Germany and France are furious; Noam Chomsky is alarmed; the founding fathers of the "land of the free" are reportedly spinning in their graves; and John Kampfner has sounded a grim warning about the further erosion of the West's moral authority over more draconian regimes. Even senior staff at MI5 think that GCHQ may have gone too far. Among the general population the reaction appears more mixed. There is disquiet certainly but a significant fraction of the population - almost half in the US – has shrugged off the snooping. Perhaps primed by powerful fictional accounts of electronic espionage in TV shows such as Spooks or Homeland or the Bourne films, many of us have long presumed that we are under surveillance and so were unsurprised at the news. I suspect also that a generation happy to splurge the minutiae of their lives over Facebook and Twitter is less likely to be concerned that personal information is up for grabs by the government. We should not be so blasé. Privacy is a precious commodity. Its commercial value emerged clearly, if grubbily, from the accounts of intrusive journalism unearthed by the Leveson Inquiry. But how far does the state have the right to track our private lives, even if it is in the pursuit of our rather ill-defined national and economic interests? Most would agree that the state has some business monitoring internet traffic, to sniff out trails of criminal or terrorist activity, and there are plausible sounding reassurances that valuable intelligence has been obtained in this way (though it is hard to test such claims). However, we still need to be wary of our guardians. Our police forces have shown a cavalier disregard for the law when it comes to gathering information on environmentalists, or the families of murder victims or when cosying up to the press for cash. How can we ensure that our intelligence analysts operate to higher standards, now that we have discovered them to be siphoning enormous torrents of information from our computers into theirs? The admission by GCHQ lawyers that the UK has a "light oversight regime compared to the US" is hardly reassuring. Given the pace of technological change, the state's ability to capture and process information from the web will only increase. It is too early to tell this internet-altered world how we are going to find the proper balance between the invasion of privacy and the rights of the individual, but if we are to maintain any semblance of democracy these questions need to be weighed in public and in parliament. And yet, amid all the brouhaha, the thought did occur to me that there could be an upside to the discovery of unprecedented levels of state-sponsored snooping. There is one group that might privately be wishing they had access to the information flows being sucked into GCHQ: biographers.  (Jul 4, 2013 | post #1)

MP, AIIMS prof blandt cyber kriminalitet mål

http://www.asianag e.com/delhi/mp-aii ms-prof-among-cybe r-crime-targets-40 2 Cellen cyber i Delhi politiets økonomiske forbrydelser fløj har registreret fire tilfælde af cyberkriminalitet i de sidste to dage efter klager, herunder fra Kongressen MP Naveen Jindal og en AIIMS professor. Mens Ms Jindal har klaget over "nedsættende " bogføringer på Facebook og forlangte deres blokering, forurettede AIIMS ortopaedi professor Prakash P. Kotwal på nedsættende emails, bogføringer på social networking websteder og blogs. To andre klager — chikane af en kvinde, bosat i Munirka område i South Delhi, og kloning af hjemmesiden for ministeriet for statistik og gennemførelse – er også blevet registreret, en højtstående politiet tjenestemand sagde søndag. Hr. Naveen Jindal sagde i sin klage, at nogle ukendte personer vil plette hans image og at nogle EF sider er kommet i hans navn på Facebook med krænkende og misbrug meddelelser. "Der er også nogle meddelelser, der er bogført på de nævnte sider repræsenterer som der have bogført ved mig. Jeg formoder at disse sider er blevet oprettet med bagtanker og kan være en del af en større sammensværgelse, "hævdede han. AIIMS ortopædisk kontorchef Dr. Kotwal klagede, nedsættende emails startet hælde efter interviews til stillingen som adjunkt i marts 2012. "Somebody med sandsynligvis en falsk navn (Madhusudhan Patel, dette navn findes ikke i indiske Orthopaedic Association) sendt en mail til AIIMS. Sagen blev kigget i dybden af myndigheder og påstandene fandtes for at være falsk,"sagde han. Men e-mailen blev sendt i et andet navn og nedsættende bemærkninger blev bogført på social networking websteder og blogs.

abney associates mobile warning

http://edition.cnn .com/2013/02/21/te ch/mobile/mcafee-t hreats-report/inde x.html Zoals recente high-profile aanvallen op grote bedrijven zoals Facebook en Apple, belangrijkste publicaties zoals de New York Times en de Washington Post en de Amerikaanse regering zelf hebben duidelijk, is cybercriminaliteit een zeer reële en groeiende zorg voor iedereen.De laatste bedreiging verslag van veiligheid stevige McAfee wijst op de noodzaak van waakzaamheid op mobiele apparaten en een verandering in hoe mensen en bedrijven benadering van veiligheid.Smartph ones en tabletten zijn steeds warm doelstellingen voor cyber-criminelen, en het volume van mobiele bedreigingen groeit veel sneller dan het deed voor PC's. Het bedrag van malware gedetecteerd door McAfee op de apparaten in 2012 was 44 keer wat het was het voorgaande jaar.Het bedrijf schat dat 95% van alle mobiele malware ooit bedacht is gemaakt in het afgelopen jaar alleen al, en de overgrote meerderheid van die is gemaakt voor het Android operating system.Maar van McAfee wereldwijd chief technology officer, Mike Fey, waarschuwt tegen het kijken naar de het aantal bedreigingen gericht op Android en in de veronderstelling dat andere platforms zijn veiliger. Criminelen zijn gericht op het besturingssysteem gedeeltelijk omdat het zo open, en ook omdat ze de neiging om zich te concentreren op het platform dat zij denken rond de langste is.Wat maakt deze draagbare apparaten dergelijke sappige streefcijfers voor criminelen is dat ze schering en inslag met persoonlijke en financiële informatie zijn. Bijvoorbeeld, veel telefoons hebben functies gebakken in bankieren en criminelen "Trojaans paard" virussen aan melk die hen drogen met behulp van SMS-diensten die heffing per tekst kunnen gebruiken.Fey zegt malware niet eens het grootste probleem voor mobiele gebruikers op dit moment. Telefoon eigenaren moeten meer zorgen over een bezoek aan een site die zal iets kwaadaardige namens hen te doen.  (Feb 24, 2013 | post #1)
