POLICE RECEIVE GOD’S EYE TECHNOLOGY, GOOGLE EARTH WITH REAL TIME TIVO CAPABILITIES

“A new surveillance system that collects and records information in real-time — and then lets trackers rewind, zoom in and follow certain targets — has hit the test market streets of Baltimore, Md., and Dayton, Ohio, and in at least one crime-fighting unit in California,” the Washington Times reported.

The surveillance software sounds a lot like Google earth with real time and TIVO like capabilities, able to search any individuals location and associations through out their day. A law enforcement officer could track your daily voyage from when you leave your home in the morning until you return in the evening.

The system will be able to track your daily trends, where you travel to, who you are with, when you visit and for how long. Any crimes you may commit throughout your day could be used against you.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't know about you; but this article just makes me profoundly uncomfortable.

That everything I say and do can be surveilled, then used against me?!?

Thank you, no; I think I will pick up an abacus, and get away from computers and the phones, if this is the reality now.

Former Facebook exec warns society will collapse into chaos and conflict within 30 years as robots put half of humans out of work (and he's living as a recluse in the woods to avoid it)

Antonio García Martinez, a former Facebook product manager and Silicon Valley author, became terrified of technology and quit his job to live a life as a recluse with a bucket toilet and assault weapon in the woodlands north of Seattle.

'You may not believe it but it's coming, and it's coming in the form of a self-driving truck that's going to run you over,' he told the BBC in an upcoming two-part BBC documentary 'Secrets of Silicon Valley'.

China launches internet crackdown to make it harder for people to avoid its 'Great Firewall'

China has launched an internet crackdown to stop users bypassing the country's "Great Firewall" - a sophisticated censorship system that blocks Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, among other sites. Luxury hotels in Beijing have announced they will stop providing Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) that allow visitors to log on to banned sites.

Weather-based MIND CONTROL: Mobile app advertisers check the weather in your area to decide what ads will influence you the most

According to a recent study published in the INFORMS journal Marketing Science, certain weather conditions have a significant effect on how consumers respond after seeing an advertisement. For example, the study found that on sunny days, consumers respond to mobile promotions 73 percent faster and at a rate 1.2 times higher than they normally do. By contrast, response to mobile promotions during raining conditions was .9 times lower and 59 percent slower than the response to advertisements during cloudy weather.

Strangely enough, the consumer response to advertisements on cloudy days with isolated moments of sunshine was extremely positive. People were far more likely to interact with an ad when there were a few bursts of sunshine scattered throughout the day than they were when the weather was dark, gloomy and rainy.

Internet Censorship Bill Would Spell Disaster for Speech and Innovation

There’s a new bill in Congress that would threaten your right to free expression online. If that weren’t enough, it could also put small Internet businesses in danger of catastrophic litigation.

Don’t let its name fool you: the Stop Enabling Sex Traffickers Act (SESTA, S. 1693) wouldn’t help punish sex traffickers. What the bill would do (PDF) is expose any person, organization, platform, or business that hosts third-party content on the Internet to the risk of overwhelming criminal and civil liability if sex traffickers use their services. For small Internet businesses, that could be fatal: with the possibility of devastating litigation costs hanging over their heads, we think that many entrepreneurs and investors will be deterred from building new businesses online.

Make no mistake: sex trafficking is a real, horrible problem. This bill is not the way to address it.

Meet ‘Spoofy’. How a Single entity dominates the price of Bitcoin.

This story is about a trader, or a group of traders, or possibly even Bitfinex themselves manipulates the price of Bitcoin. The past few months I’ve slowly collected screenshots of a trader I like to call ‘Spoofy’. You’ll see evidence of spoofing, wash trading, a sketchy scheme associated closely with Bitfinex known as ‘Tether’ among other shenanigans.

Spoofy makes the price go up when he wants it to go up, and Spoofy makes the price go down when he wants it to go down, and he’s got the coin… both USD, and Bitcoin of course to pull it off, and with impunity on Bitfinex.

Marcus Hutchins “MalwareTechBlog” Pleads Not Guilty, Released on Bail

U.S. Army Abruptly Bans Chinese-Made Drones Over ‘Cyber Vulnerabilities’

The U.S. Army abruptly banned its members from using drones produced by Chinese manufacturer SZ DJI Technology Co Ltd Wednesday due to “cyber vulnerabilities.”

An August 2 memo signed by Lieutenant General Joseph Anderson, published online by drone blog sUAS News and later confirmed by Reuters, orders service members to “Cease all use, uninstall all DJI applications, remove all batteries/storage media from devices, and secure equipment for follow on direction.”

“Due to increased awareness of cyber vulnerabilities associated with DJI products, it is directed that the U.S. Army halt use of all DJI products,” the memo reads. “This guidance applies to all DJI UAS and any system that employs DJI electrical components or software including, but not limited to, flight computers, cameras, radios, batteries, speed controllers, GPS units, handheld control stations, or devices with DJI software applications installed.”

Smartphones and Social Media Causing Mental Health Disaster with Children

Even when a seismic event—a war, a technological leap, a free concert in the mud—plays an outsize role in shaping a group of young people, no single factor ever defines a generation. Parenting styles continue to change, as do school curricula and culture, and these things matter. But the twin rise of the smartphone and social media has caused an earthquake of a magnitude we’ve not seen in a very long time, if ever. There is compelling evidence that the devices we’ve placed in young people’s hands are having profound effects on their lives—and making them seriously unhappy.

He has cause for concern. On 11 July, the Palestine Telecommunications Company, Paltel, announced that its main generator had broken down because of high loads and long power cuts. Tens of thousands of landline customers and some 8,000 Internet subscribers lost service because, as the company explained on its Facebook page, it was not able to import parts for its backup generators or bring in new, better ones.

Google blocked every one of the WSWS’s 45 top search terms

An intensive review of Internet data has established that Google has severed links between the World Socialist Web Site and the 45 most popular search terms that previously directed readers to the WSWS. The physical censorship implemented by Google is so extensive that of the top 150 search terms that, as late as April 2017, connected the WSWS with readers, 145 no longer do so.

These findings make clear that the decline in Google search traffic to the WSWS is not the result of some technical issue, but a deliberate policy of censorship. The fall took place in the three months since Google announced on April 25 plans to promote “authoritative web sites” above those containing “offensive” content and “conspiracy theories.”

Because of these measures, the WSWS’s search traffic from Google has fallen by two-thirds since April.

CHINA UNVEILS EMERGENCY DRILL TO "SHUT DOWN HARMFUL WEBSITES"

China's 19th National Congress of the Communist Party - the quinquennial confab where the party selects new members of the Politburo, its ruling council - is expected to begin this fall (official dates have not yet been publicly announced). And in an effort to guarantee that the leadership reshuffle goes off without a hitch, President Xi Jinping is tightening the government’s grip on the internet to help protect the official narrative that Xi's "Chinese Dream" remains intact.

According to Reuters, China held a drill on Thursday with internet service providers to practice taking down websites deemed harmful.

“Internet data centers (IDC) and cloud companies - which host website servers - were ordered to participate in a three-hour drill to hone their "emergency response" skills, according to at least four participants that included the operator of Microsoft's cloud service in China.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

IF "harmful information" translates into "truthful information" for the Chinese government, you should be prepared to see these kinds of shut downs start to happen right here in the good old Unhinged, Surveilled States of America.

In fact, Google has been on the keening edge of this kind of censorship for well over a year now.

Dictionary.com app under fire for 'bug fix' update that lets it track users

The new permissions authorize the apps to access your exact location, retrieve running apps, pair with wifi and Bluetooth devices as well as read your phone status and ID.

It appears the company first disguised the update as 'bug fixes' before eventually being truthful about the updates, which it is believed will help to company sell ads and data about users.

Rogue chatbots are taken offline in China after criticising the ruling Communist Party

The two 'chatbots', BabyQ and XiaoBing, are designed to use machine learning artificial intelligence to carry out chats online with humans.

According to posts circulating online, BabyQ, one of the chatbots developed by Chinese firm Turing Robot, responded to questions on the messaging service with a straightforward 'no' when asked whether it loved the Communist Party.

In other images of a text conversation online, which Reuters was unable to verify, one user declares: 'Long live the Communist Party!'

The sharp-tongued bot responds: 'Do you think such a corrupt and useless political (system) can live long?'

LastPass has doubled the price of its Premium password manager. This 100 percent price hike has happened without warning, and has understandably upset existing Premium users. And LastPass Free users aren’t faring any better, with two key features being moved from Free to Premium.

If you’re the sort of person who needs a password manager then you can’t really go wrong with LastPass. It’s widely regarded as one of the best password managers out there, despite recent security scares. Unfortunately, it’s rejigging its products and prices, and it isn’t going well.

Georgia To Roll Out Tens Of Thousands Of CCTV Cameras With Real-Time Facial Recognition Capabilities

Surveillance using CCTV cameras is old hat these days, even for locations outside the world's CCTV capital, London. But there's an important step-change taking place in the sector, as operators move from simply observing and recording, to analyzing video feeds automatically using facial recognition software. Techdirt has written about this area a few times, but these examples have all been fairly small-scale and exploratory. News from Georgia -- the one in the Caucasus, not the State -- shows that things are moving fast in this field

Facepalm: Intel's upcoming Coffee Lake CPUs won't work with today's motherboards

Why this matters: The vast majority of new CPU sales are in new systems, and they likely won’t be impacted by the incompatibility. However, there’s also a very large and very vocal crowd of builders and upgraders who still swap out older, slower CPUs for newer, faster CPUs to maximize their investment. An upgrade-in-place doesn’t sell an Intel chipset, but it at least keeps them on the Intel platform. If consumers are forced to dump an existing Z270 motherboard for a newer Z370 to get a six-core Coffee Lake CPU, Intel risks driving them into the arms of AMD and its Ryzen CPUs.

YOUTUBE TAKES CONTROVERSIAL STEPS TO CENSOR NON-LEFTISTS

Stating that the content is “controversial,” not the censorship itself, YouTube has taken the first few steps to censor dissenting views. But it gets worse. YouTube will also begin to censor your searches and fill the results with propaganda while on its website.

Last night, YouTube took to its “Official Blog” to more or less announce that they would be taking steps to censor content they determined to be “controversial,” even if that content didn’t break any laws or violate the site’s user agreement. The message made a pledge to be part of an effort to “fight terror content online.” But the move was rightly met with widespread skepticism among YouTuber’s as nothing more than a thinly-veiled attempt to censor conservative speech.

HBO hack is 'SEVEN times larger than the Sony breach of 2014' and 'personal details of a top executive could have been exposed' by the cyber attackers

Stunning new details about the HBO hack have revealed seven times the amount of data stolen in the infamous Sony attack of 2014 was potentially exposed.

It was reported hackers broke into the cable company's servers earlier this week and made off with a script for this week's Game of Thrones episode, as well as unreleased episodes of Ballers, Room 104, and Insecure.

The show Barry, a comedy not set to hit screens until 2018, also had two episodes stolen.

Further new details, published by Variety, indicate the hack could have gone much deeper than originally thought, and that information regarding a top HBO executive could have been be exposed.

Google’s Tracking Of Offline Spending Sparks Call For Federal Investigation

Google recently announced a suite of new tools for advertisers, allowing them to link a customer’s offline credit card purchases with the things they look at online. Shockingly, some privacy advocates think this sort of tracking goes too far and have called on the federal government to investigate.

The Electronic Privacy Information Center this morning filed a complaint [PDF] with the Federal Trade Commission, asking the agency to investigate Google’s Store Sales Management consumer profiling technology and stop the company from tracking customers’ in-store purchases.

According to EPIC, Google’s system, which can allegedly track 70% of all credit and debt card transactions in the U.S., puts the personal information — including product searches, location searches and payment information — of shoppers and Internet users at risk of hacks or other data breaches.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This cyber-spying on individuals by large corporations, like Google, has just reached epidemic proportions, and needs to be stopped.

WIKILEAKS RELEASES DOCS ON ‘DUMBO’ CIA TOOL ALLOWING CONTROL OF WEBCAMS

WikiLeaks released new documents on Thursday within the Vault 7 documents, which contain information on CIA’s hacking tools from the Dumbo project.

“Dumbo is a capability to suspend processes utilizing webcams and corrupt any video recordings that could compromise a PAG deployment. The PAG (Physical Access Group) is a special branch within the CCI (Center for Cyber Intelligence); its task is to gain and exploit physical access to target computers in CIA field operations,” WikiLeaks said in a press release.

The tool allows for the identification, control and manipulation of the monitoring and detection systems, like webcams and microphones, on a target computer running the Microsoft Windows operating system. It requires a direct access to the computer as it is run from an USB stick.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Folks, here's the deal with me: I am a Christian Activist Pacifist, who never advocates violence, but implores her country to engage in logical, moral, hard-won negotiations as the way to resolve the US government's geopolitical differences.

I blog, and I do my level best to be fact-centric.

Mozilla has launched a new website that makes it really easy to send a file from one person to another. The site is called Send, and it’s basically the Snapchat of file sharing: after a file has been downloaded once, it disappears for good.

That might sound like a gimmick, but it underscores what the site is meant for. It’s designed for quick and private sharing between two people — not for long-term hosting or distributing files to a large group.

Chrome web dev plugin with 1m+ users hijacked, crams ads into browsers

A popular Chrome extension was hijacked earlier today to inject ads into browsers, and potentially run malicious JavaScript, after the plugin's creator was hacked.

Chris Pederick, maker of the Web Developer for Chrome extension, is urging anyone who uses his programming tool to update to version 0.5 or later. That's because miscreants apparently phished his Google account, updated the software to version 0.4.9, and pushed it out to its 1,044,000 users.

That booby-trapped build fetched JavaScript code from the web and ran it within people's browsers: the code forcibly slapped ads on pages, and may have done worse. If you installed v0.4.9, you should upgrade to the clean v0.5 replacement immediately, and consider changing passwords or nullifying login tokens and cookies used on sites visited while using the infected extension.

This is How CIA Disables Security Cameras During Hollywood-Style Operations

WikiLeaks has just unveiled another classified CIA project, dubbed 'Dumbo,' which details how CIA agents hijack and manipulate webcams and microphones in Hollywood style "to gain and exploit physical access to target computers in CIA field operations."

The Dumbo CIA project involves a USB thumb drive equipped with a Windows hacking tool that can identify installed webcams and microphones, either connected locally, wired or wirelessly via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi.

Once identified, the Dumbo program allows the CIA agents to:

  • Mute all microphones
  • Disables all network adapters
  • Suspends any processes using a camera recording device
  • Selectively corrupted or delete recordings
