Amazon Targets YouTube With New Online Video Posting Service

Amazon.com Inc. will let people post videos to its website and earn money from advertising, royalties and other sources, putting the company in more-direct competition with Google’s YouTube.

Amazon already offers movies and television programs over the Internet -- including its own original productions -- to compete with Netflix Inc. The new product will let Amazon give consumers more options about what to watch without an upfront fee because many of those posting videos will be paid based on how their content performs. Competing streaming services have been driving up the cost of this material.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If Amazon promises not to censor videos or alter view counts I am ready to switch over!

JUDICIAL WATCH LAWSUIT UNCOVERS MORE HILLARY CLINTON EMAILS WITHHELD FROM STATE DEPARTMENT

Judicial Watch today released new State Department emails (one batch of 103 pages, the second of 138 pages) that again appear to contradict statements by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton that, “as far as she knew,” all of her government emails were turned over to the State Department and that she did not use her clintonemail.com system until March 18, 2009.

Judicial Watch recently released Clinton State Department emails dating from February 2009 that also call into question her statements about her emails.

The documents were obtained by Judicial Watch in response a court order in a May 5,2015, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department, after it failed to respond to a March 18 FOIA request (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:15-cv-00684)). The lawsuit seeks:

Editing Reality: Former Employees Admit Facebook Censors Conservative News

Now it's officially admitted.

We know Twitter works the same way and so does Google’s “breaking” and “trending” news. We can tell ourselves that people will go elsewhere to read and vet news, but come on. We live in a world where the average human attention span is now smaller than that of a goldfish.

To act like the Internet isn’t powerful enough to influence reality, including protests, politics and even the outcome of elections, is just wishful thinking.

Why Did NBC News Sit on Explosive Story About Clinton's Alleged Hacked Email Server For Weeks?

According to the NBC News press release, Lazar was interviewed by reporter Cynthia McFadden from a Bucharest prison, where he admitted to also hacking into Clinton’s private e-mail account.

So, it stands to reason that McFadden conducted the interview before he was extradited to the U.S. which means NBC News was sitting on these explosive claims for more than one month. Which raises the question, why would a major news network sit on such an explosive allegation — especially when the claim directly relates to a presidential candidate and the biggest story the 2016 presidential election cycle?

The delay cost them what would’ve been a huge exclusive....We reached out to NBC News for clarification and a spokesman declined to comment at this time.

FBI Makes MASSIVE Move Against Hillary Clinton! It’s Happening!

Unfortunately, President Obama may be working behind the scenes to prevent criminal charges being filed. Hillary Clinton must be reminded that she is not above the law.

And considering the many laws she has broken, the American people deserve to learn the truth about Hillary before the elections in November.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have no confidence that the FBI will do their job. The FBI have been the protectors of the Clintons going all the way back to the murder of White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster and Hillary can blackmail the FBI with that to force their cooperation in more coverups. Already, we see the propaganda coming out that regardless of what Hillary did, she had no intention of doing wrong, therefore she is innocent. That is ridiculous. You probably don't intend to run a red light and kill a pedestrian, but if you do, you will probably go to jail.

In any event, Title 18 includes exposure of state secrets through negligence as a prosecutable crime and we have Hillary's June 17, 2011 email to Jacob Sullivan ordering him to strip the classification headers off of a document and send it to her via non-secure means. It doesn't matter what was in the document or even if Jacob did it nor not. The giving of that order is a violation of Title 18 Section 793.

Hillary's giving that order means she knew she was in possession of classified documents, at a time when the only email server she was using was her private server.

Title 18 also provides that anyone in violation of any section of Title 18 is BANNED FROM PUBLIC OFFICE!

Israel enlists US Homeland Security to gag its own citizens online

There are two faces of Israel. One, which is presented to the world, shows a happy people in a land of contentment. The other, nowadays manifesting itself on Israeli social media, is full of discontent about the corruption and the mistreatment of citizens. Negative opinion polls soon “disappear” and are impossible to trace. This is especially the case where the issues concern the justice system, the welfare authorities or the police.

In Israel, it is a crime to “insult a public official’, even when the “insult” is nothing more than a blog or social media post questioning a decision or action. The fines are high, and those who write can also face a prison sentence of six months. Social media sites are constantly monitored by the authorities and the mere mention of a name can result in an arrest.

Life is becoming dangerous for activists who blog – patriots who advocate reform and campaign for justice by exposing corruption.

Microsoft Confirms 'Free' Windows 10 Will Become Expensive

Has the Windows 10 free upgrade offer been a success? I suspect history will see it as mixed.

On the plus side Microsoft says over 300M PCs now run Windows 10 just 10 months after launch. But on the other Microsoft has taken a $1.5BN hit to give these copies away, adoption hasn’t been greatly faster than Windows 7 and the company has been rightly savaged for some of the sneaky and often downright scandalous tactics it has employed to push users to upgrade.

All in all, I suspect there’s still a lot more to come from Windows 10 both good and bad...

Washington Post BEX - Hillary Clinton is going to be exonerated on the email controversy. It won’t matter.

Prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server have so far found scant evidence that the leading Democratic presidential candidate intended to break classification rules, though they are still probing the case aggressively with an eye on interviewing Clinton herself, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The "she didn't mean to do wrong" defense will not fly. If you run a red light and kill a pedestrian, you still go to jail even though you did not mean to do it. And, under Title 18, revealing secrets through negligence is still a crime.

On June 17, 2011, Hillary ordered her subordinate, Jacob Sullivan, to strip the classification headers from a document and send it via non-secure means. That is a violation of Title 18 Section 793. It doesn't matter what was in the document. It doesn't even matter of Jacob carried out the order. It is Hillary's issuing of the order that is a violation!

Remember China-gate from 1996? Then President Bill Clinton authorized the sale of sensitive US technology to China and Chinese money was donated to his re-election campaign!

Was Hillary playing the same game, selling US secrets delivered via a private server with weaker security than the Ashley Madison website in exchange for "donations" to her "charitable" foundation?

It is time to look past the server itself to what may be the biggest spy scandal in US history!

This is a cover-up, no different than when Washington Post Managing Editor Bob Kaiser spiked the story about drug running out of Mena, Arkansas by the Bush and Clinton White Houses, as part oif the Iran-Contra scandal!

Survival Communications After a Collapse: “Pringles Can And Broadband Routers Could Create a WiFi Network”

Has anyone ever tried this, or think it will work in off-grid or survival communities?

Your best option, then, may be to set up your own community computer network – and the most sensible technology would be Wi-Fi, as the components are easily available. “You could loot a PC World for broadband routers and then hit a garage or supermarket for some Pringles cans,” says Bloch. “With those, you can probably build a reasonable network across a scorched suburb.”

Why a Pringle can? Well, it can be used to create a cantenna which would be capable of boosting a Wi-Fi signal from your computer. “Some students in Kansas made a cantenna that transmitted over 100 miles a few years ago,” says Bloch.

FBI Seeks To Keep Its Nationwide Biometric Database A Secret From Citizens

By Nicholas West

The FBI’s Next Generation Identification Biometrics Database went live nationwide in 2014 without much fanfare from the general public. Naturally, establishment media wasn’t there to give attention to the massive endeavor, even though from its inception it threatened the privacy of every single American...

Over the ensuing years, the prevalence of biometrics has only increased in everything from banking, to drones, to student IDs, to facial recognition billboards in public space, to voice recognition security. At this point it is unclear just how many biometric images might be stored in the database now that there are even more sources from which to cull data. And the FBI is would like to keep it that way….

BEX ALERT - Officials: Scant evidence that Clinton had malicious intent in handling of emails

Prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton’s use of a personal email server have so far found scant evidence that the leading Democratic presidential candidate intended to break classification rules, though they are still probing the case aggressively with an eye on interviewing Clinton herself, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is the start of the "she meant well" defense, which does not apply in this case. Title 18 stipulates that negligence constitutes a violation.

Hillary clearly violated Title 18 Sec 7934 when she instructed Jacob Sullivan to strip the classification headers from a document and send it non-secure.

A 25-year-old software engineer named Edward Mackowiak who worked for Apple has reportedly shot himself in the head at the company headquarters in Cupertino. His death was quickly ruled a suicide just hours later after police found no evidence of foul play at the scene.

What’s strange is how the company refused to give any details about what Mackowiak actually did there. The only information about his job was on a hastily removed Linkedin page. Gizmodo reports it was sparse as well, simply listing him as a software engineer at Apple. His Twitter account has also been quickly deleted.

Microsoft has made a change to an update for Windows 7 that can prevent certain systems from booting.

Updategate: Microsoft suggests updating to Windows 10 to patch Windows 7

So now, if you have one of the affected motherboard and you keep your security updates automatic like wot Microsoft recommends, then your machine will stop working properly.

We should add it's not permanently bricked, but it will take some mucking about in the BIOS to fix and that's a pain even for an experienced computer user.

Microsoft has, by offering a workaround, suggested heavily that it won't be fixing the problem, though we have asked the question, so expect a response in about a fortnight.

But the real kicker is this piece of advice: "Note The Secure Boot feature is supported in Windows 10. To learn more about the security advantages of this feature and about the upgrade path from Windows 7 to Windows 10, go to the following Windows website"

Holy toledo, this company really knows how to rub people up the wrong way.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China.

Suck on this: White hats replace Locky malware payload with dummy

Locky normally spreads using malicious and disguised JavaScript inside email attachments supposedly containing an invoice or similar. Malicious messages are sent to prospective marks in spam runs.

Those on Windows machines who open the malicious attachment are likely to become infected, a process that results in user files getting encrypted. If this happens it’s normally impractical to recover scrambled files without paying crooks a fee in exchange for the private encryption key needed to recover compromised data.

The hack by as yet unidentified white hats meant that in place of the expected ransomware, “victims” were served with a 12kb binary with the plain message “Stupid Locky” that isn’t a valid executable, anti-virus firm Avira reports.

Known internally as “news curators,” the contractors say they were given the ability to “deactivate” or blacklist any trending topic if it wasn’t being covered by minimally “three traditional news sources.” “A topic was often blacklisted if it didn’t have at least three traditional news sources covering it, but otherwise the protocol was murky—meaning a curator could ostensibly blacklist a topic without a particularly good reason for doing so,” Nunez writes, although curators insist the system wasn’t abused.

Security of critical phone database called into question

Federal officials fear that national security may have been jeopardized when the company building a sensitive phone-number database violated a federal requirement that only U.S. citizens work on the project.

The database is significant because it tracks nearly every phone number in North America, making it a key tool for law enforcement agencies seeking to monitor criminal or espionage targets.

Now Telcordia, a Swedish-owned firm, is being compelled to rewrite the database computer code — a massive undertaking — to assuage concerns from officials at the FBI and Federal Communications Commission that foreign citizens had access to the project. These officials fear that if other countries gain access to the code, they could reap a counterintelligence bonanza, learning the targets of U.S. law enforcement and espionage investigations.

The innovation at the heart of it is an FDA-approved ingestible sensor housed in pills, designed to help patients adhere to the medications their doctors prescribe. Except the sensor isn't powered by a battery, it's powered by the gut of the patient swallowing it, using technology discovered two centuries ago.

Turns out that making TV sets smarter may not have been the world's brightest idea

Smart TVs are frequently plagued with confusing interfaces, buggy functions and inconsistent updates. They are sometimes mysteriously unable to run new streaming services and may never be updated to add new features to the ones they do run.

Worse, some TV makers focus on bringing new features only to their latest models in an effort to persuade people to buy new sets. Samsung's 2016 models, for instance, implicitly inform anyone who bought last year's sets that they've already been left behind. Those earlier customers won't be able to use their Samsung TVs to set mood lighting or check security cameras in a connected home.

Among the new features in LG's 2016 models: Magic Zoom, which will let viewers zoom in on video while it's playing — using a digital magnifying glass — to make out small text and other details. But LG won't say when, if ever, older TVs will get that.

Extreme photo-bombing: Bad ImageMagick bug puts countless websites at risk of hijacking

Whenever you upload a profile photo, a gallery of snaps, or a silly meme to a website, there's an extremely high chance that the site is using ImageMagick, an open-source collection of image processing tools, to resize, crop and tweak the pictures.

By feeding booby-trapped data – such as a poisoned selfie – to web services using ImageMagick, it may be possible to execute malicious code on the website's server. From there hackers can start infiltrating the system to steal secrets, snoop on people's accounts, and so on.

German nuclear plant infected with computer viruses, operator says

A nuclear power plant in Germany has been found to be infected with computer viruses, but they appear not to have posed a threat to the facility's operations because it is isolated from the Internet, the station's operator said on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

As the Iranians found out, the air-gapped computers running the systems can still be infected with flash drives. Back during Desert Storm, Iraq's military computers all crashed, even though they were not connected to the internet. The intrusion was reported to have been done via a Hewlett Packard printer that had been "modified" prior to delivery.

F-35s failed 'scramble test' because of buggy software

At Mountain View in Utah, the US Air Force decided too take the six F-35As out for a spin in a simulated scramble, but the results were disappointing:

“The Air Force attempted two alert launch procedures during the Mountain Home deployment, where multiple F-35A aircraft were preflighted and prepared for a rapid launch,” wrote Gilmore, “but only one of the six aircraft was able to complete the alert launch sequence and successfully takeoff”.

He continues: “Problems during start-up that required system or aircraft shut-downs and restarts – a symptom of immature systems and software – prevented the other alert launches from being completed”.

ISIS Releases New Kill List of 3,600 Random New Yorkers — FBI to Visit Each Personally

The info was reportedly posted on an ISIS-only channel along with the statement, “We want them #Dead” — because even terrorists know the importance of hashtags.

U.S. Senator Calls For Federal Investigation Of Billboards Spying On The Public

FOR INDIANA VOTERS - HILLARY THE SPY?

Let us start with an historical fact. Treason and betrayal by the highest levels is a common feature of history, whether it is Judas vs Jesus, Brutus vs Julius Caesar, Benedict Arnold, the Rosenbergs, Jonathan Pollard, Aldrich Ames, Robert Hanssen. It is just a fact of life. It does happen.

Back in 1996, when Bill Clinton was running for re-election, he authorized the transfer of highly sensitive technology to China. This technology had military applications and allowed China to close the gap in missile performance with the United States. The transfers were opposed and severely criticized by the Defense Department.

'Spying Billboards' Under Fire for Tapping Into People's Cellphones

A U.S. senator is calling for a federal investigation into an outdoor advertising company's latest effort to target billboard ads to specific consumers.

New York Sen. Charles Schumer has dubbed Clear Channel Outdoor Americas' so-called RADAR program "spying billboards," warning the service may violate privacy rights by tracking people's cell phone data via the ad space.

"A person's cellphone should not become a James Bond-like personal tracking device for a corporation to gather information about consumers without their consent," Schumer, a Democrat, said in a statement ahead of a planned news conference Sunday in Times Square, where the company operates billboards.

But the company, which operates more than 675,000 billboards throughout the world, argues that characterization of its program is inaccurate, insisting it only uses anonymous data collected by other companies.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No, there has to be a unique identifier assigned to those being tracked to coordinate the ads.

Now, I personally don't have a problem with this. If I have to look at billboards anyway I prefer them to be for something I find interesting. However there are two problems. The first is that people like myself who browse subjects for news sites may build up a totally inaccurate ad profile. Second (and of more concern) people riding with you may infer things about your private life from the billboards being show to you.

Warning: Windows 10 updates being forced on users

Attention all computer users who have Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, you are in eminent danger from the new Microsoft policy to automatically download and install Windows 10 without your permission.

I have received numerous calls about Windows 10 just appearing on users’ computers, and none of them had requested the Windows 10 update. Many users complained that it is not clear how to use this system as many items appear to be missing, including anti-spyware programs. But, more importantly, many computers have been left with no working operating system at all!

Apparently the Windows 10 update failed for some unknown reason, and now many of those computers will not start in either Windows 7 mode or Windows 8 mode.

On Thursday the US Supreme Court approved a change to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure. It sounds innocuous, but the effects will be felt around the world. Under today's rules, US cops and FBI agents need to know where a computer is before they can get a warrant to directly hack the machine – because they have to ensure the judge and court they approach for the warrant has geographical jurisdiction over the physical location of the computer. In other words, a district judge can't issue a search warrant against someone outside her district

OREGON INTELLIGENCE COP SPIED ON DIRECTOR OF STATE CIVIL RIGHTS OFFICE FOR TWEETING BLACK LIVES MATTER

In Oregon, these toxic ingredients combined to produce racist, illegal surveillance of a government employee’s First Amendment protected speech. Specifically, a police intelligence officer assigned to the local “fusion center” compiled a report on the Director of the state Department of Justice’s Civil Rights division’s tweets, warning his superiors that the civil rights Director’s commentary about police violence against Black Americans constituted threats to law enforcement. The memo describing these tweets was ultimately passed to the Attorney General, who immediately called for its author to be put on leave and commissioned an independent investigation. The results of that investigation were published in an April 6, 2016 report. The remarkable document shines a light into a place most Americans don’t have access to, but which has an outsized influence in 21st century American life: the shadowy local surveillance infrastructure established in the wake of the 9/11 attacks.

A Philadelphia man suspected of possessing child pornography has been in jail for seven months and counting after being found in contempt of a court order demanding that he decrypt two password-protected hard drives.

The suspect, a former Philadelphia Police Department sergeant, has not been charged with any child porn crimes. Instead, he remains indefinitely imprisoned in Philadelphia's Federal Detention Center for refusing to unlock two drives encrypted with Apple's FileVault software in a case that once again highlights the extent to which the authorities are going to crack encrypted devices. The man is to remain jailed "until such time that he fully complies" with the decryption order.

SNOWDEN - Official Trailer

Academy Award®-winning director Oliver Stone, who brought Platoon, Born on the Fourth of July, Wall Street and JFK to the big screen, tackles the most important and fascinating true story of the 21st century. Snowden, the politically-charged, pulse-pounding thriller starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Shailene Woodley, reveals the incredible untold personal story of Edward Snowden, the polarizing figure who exposed shocking illegal surveillance activities by the NSA and became one of the most wanted men in the world.

He is considered a hero by some, and a traitor by others. No matter which you believe, the epic story of why he did it, who he left behind, and how he pulled it off makes for one of the most compelling films of the year.

CIA-Backed Artificial Intelligence Firm To Spy on Wall Street Traders

Swiss multinational bank, Credit Suisse, will collaborate with data analysis firm, Palantir, to launch a trader surveillance program.

It comes in the wake of a number of trading scandals in recent years that have cost banks billions of dollars.
