Father Ted creator Graham Linehan is banned from Twitter after stating 'men aren't women' in row with trans activists and using the word 'groomer' in years-old post

Father Ted creator Graham Linehan is the latest high profile user to be suspended from Twitter for after the site said it breached rules on using banned words.

The Irish sitcom writer has been banned for 'hateful conduct', including using the word ‘groomer’ in a years old post which was found by trans rights activists after he got embroiled in an argument with them.

It comes a week after Kate Hopkins was banned from Twitter for unspecified violations of its user conduct policy.

Mr Linehan has gained notoriety in recent years for his vocal opinions on transgender rights and feminism, and he yesterday wrote 'men aren't women tho' in response to a Tweet wishing a happy Pride to transgender Women's institute members.

Twitter said Mr Linehan has been banned for 'repeated violations of our rules against hateful conduct and platform manipulation'.

EFF Shares Testimonials from Fitbit Wearers and Asks DOJ to Stop Fitbit-Google Merger

By B.N. Frank

There have been news reports about Fitbits shocking wearers as well as causing rashes and other new and scary heath issues. In fact, there was a class action lawsuit about the rashes. Nevertheless – employees, insurance holders, and nursing home residents are often forced to wear them or similar types of activity trackers. Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) objects to more data collection by Google, which is why they oppose the Fitbit-Google merger.

Google is notorious for unrelenting data collection already. The company is even being sued by kids for this!

EFF plans to ask the Department of Justice to stop the merger. The organization also asked Fitbit wearers to share their opinions about the merger to include with their request...

7-ELEVEN STORES ROLL OUT CONTROVERSIAL FACIAL RECOGNITION TECHNOLOGY PUTTING CUSTOMERS UNDER CONSTANT SURVEILLANCE

Customers will be under more surveillance every time they walk into a 7-Eleven but the reason for the new CCTV isn't to stop theft.

The convenience store chain has rolled out facial recognition software at more 700 than stores across Australia to be used to verify customer feedback rather than as an anti-theft measure.

The software is connected to Rate It, an online customer experience platform that runs on a tablet device in-store.

7-Eleven confirmed the installation of the new technology after a growing number of eagled-eyed customers noticed new signs at store entrances in recent weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I don't care how 7/11 is pitching this; I will NEVER enter a US 7/11 store again.

I am no thief; I will honestly pay for what I pick up at any store at which I shop.

The astonishing degree to which Code Napoleon (guilty until proven innocent) is "re-writing" laws on the books around the world, is scary in the extreme.

Two Kids Sue Google for Allegedly Collecting Students’ Biometric Data with Their Educational Tools

Google is well known already for collecting data on customers with their products and services. This is sometimes referred to as “Surveillance Capitalism” and many businesses do it whether customers are aware of it or not.

Now 2 kids are striking back about alleged involuntary data collection by Google while using the company’s educational tools, affecting potentially millions of students...

John McAfee: Everybody has something to hide it’s just a matter of from whom

(INTELLIHUB) — Computer programmer and businessman John McAfee joined the Intellihub Podcast on Tuesday where he talked about why his new $GHOST platform is the way to go in terms of anonymity.

Everybody says ‘if you’ve got nothing to hid you’ve got nothing to fear’ but let me divest you on that attitude if I may,” he the security tech mogul explained. “Everybody has something to hide it’s just a matter of from whom.”

McAfee went on to point out for example that many people may have called in sick to their boss but they may be out golfing–hiding what they are really doing from their boss.

“Has anybody ever cheated on their spouse? he asked. “Well if you have more than likely, you are trying to hide that from your significant other.”

‘Independent’ Facebook fact-checker exposed as partisan smear factory packed with CNN alumni

Facebook fact-checker Lead Stories is a biased outfit bristling with ex-CNN staffers that presents itself as neutral, despite most of its employees having donated to the Democratic Party, a conservative outlet has revealed.

The National Pulse (TNP), whose story about supposed financial links between Black Lives Matter, Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, and fundraiser ActBlue was flagged as “partly false” by Lead Stories on Facebook, did some digging on Wednesday to find out who was behind the smear, after their efforts to contest the label were apparently stonewalled.

What they discovered was an organization staffed almost entirely by Democratic donors, half of whom had worked for CNN in the past. A quarter of the employees were recurring Democratic donors, TNP revealed, suggesting an egregious conflict of interest, given the story they’d flagged at the conservative outlet was about contributions to a Democratic presidential campaign.

US government is using Google as a mass surveillance tool and user data requests have increased by 510% since 2010, according to report

The US government is using Google and social media sites like Facebook as mass surveillance tools, as user data requests have dramatically increased over the past decade, a new report reveals.

ProtonMail, an end-to-end encryption email firm, found requests to Google increased by 510 percent since 2010 and requests to Facebook rose 363 percent since 2013.

The team also notes that in just 2019, Google received 157,435 user data requests worldwide and Facebook received 269,492.

The Freedom Act, passed by Congress in 2015, hindered the National Security Agency’s ability to collect massive amounts of user data, however, it does not stop private corporations from doing the agency's dirty work.

Millions of Google Chrome users are targeted in a spyware attack that used web browser extensions to steal browsing history and login details

Security researchers have discovered malware that compromised users through downloads of extensions to Google's Chrome web browser.

The 'spyware'– software that steals information from a computer and sends it to a third party – attacked users through 32 million downloads of Chrome extensions.

Most of the free extensions purported to warn users about questionable websites or convert files from one format to another.

Instead, they siphoned off browsing history and data that provided credentials for access to internal business tools, researchers at Awake Security told Reuters.

NBC Facing "Considerable Backlash" After Pushing Google To Demonetize Conservatives, Trump Tweets

During a Thursday morning flurry of tweets that broke a period of unusually light twitter activity, President Trump took aim at two of his favorite targets - NBC News, and Google - and slammed both companies for their 'collaboration' on trying to demonetize conservative news sites.

Trump tweeted that NBC is facing "considerable backlash" for a reporter's recent "collaboration" with far-left groups in the UK to try to get two media organizations, including Zero Hedge, demonetized on Google's platform.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I keep having to ask myself, over and over; since when did being a "centerist" (which is what I consider myself to be) become such a curse to the rest of society?!?

So Whoopie Goldberg and Joy Behar, from "The View", if you're ever out this way, PLEASE stop by for tea, and whatever you'd like to eat, and tell me why I am, in your perspectives, so absolutely, pig-headedly wrong about being a centerist, and why, because of that, I need to "redeem' myself" in your eyes?!?

Because right now, ladies, I am feeling singularly unapologetic for my perspectives, which I believe to be both logical and reasonable; so I invite you both to demonstrate to me where I am wrong.

Just the Science: List of Studies that Prove 5G and 4G Densification Is NOT Safe (and 3G Isn’t Safe Either)

“The Race for 5G” requires the densification of both 4G and 5G technology. Opposition to this is worldwide. Cities AND countries continue taking action against deployment. This includes delaying and halting installation as well as issuing moratoriums. In fact, doctors and scientists have been requesting moratoriums on 5G since 2017 on Earth as well as in space.

Many people ask “Where is the scientific evidence?" Here is an extensive list of research with links...

Google Demonetizes Zero Hedge

As you may have read on NBC, Google has decided to suspend ad hosting on the "far-right" Zero Hedge (which apparently can be anything from "batshit insane Austrian school blog" to Russian propaganda or framed in any other way that serves the agenda of those who disagree with our views - which apparently these days is a lot of people) along with The Federalist, a decision that would have a materially adverse impact for both websites. The reason presented to us for this decision is far more mundane than what has been disclosed by NBC: we are currently appealing it, and expect to remedy it.

That said, we were surprised by the framing of the suspension by the NBC article, which disturbingly appears to be another attempt at activist targeting of inconvenient media outlets, especially since the core argument presented by the NBC employee is different than what Google actually has said. In fact, half the NBC article just happens to be dead wrong.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This demonetizing of zerohedge.com absolutely reeks of either insanity, or desperation on the cusp of madness, courtesy of Google.

POLITICAL GROUPS USE “DEEPLY SPOOKY” PROTESTER LOCATION DATA

SOURCE: ARS TECHNICA
It’s no secret that police and other law enforcement agencies have a history of using mobile phone location and other data to target or investigate individuals, and the wave of mass protests in support of black communities and against police brutality this month has provided a rich data trove for them to probe. As it turns out, cops aren’t the only ones diving into the data to follow demonstrators after the streets are clear.

Political advocacy and voter-registration groups are reaping the bounty of location data tied to protests, The Wall Street Journal reports.

The groups use geofencing to contact those who were at protests—basically, reaching out to every device that was in a certain area at a certain time, without specifically identifying the individual. In this case, activists reach out with political messages.

FDA APPROVES FIRST-EVER PRESCRIPTION VIDEO GAME

For the first time, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) authorized doctors to prescribe a video game as a form of medical treatment.
An iOS game called EndeavorRX seems to help kids between eight and 12 years old who have ADHD, The Verge reports. And while the actual evidence to support those claims is somewhat shaky, the concept of a prescription video game is still a fascinating world-first that’s been years in the making.

A trailer for EndeavorRX suggests that the gameplay is pretty straightforward — players steer a cartoonish vehicle left or right to hit targets and avoid obstacles while it cruises forward. According to clinical research conducted by Akili Interactive, the company behind the game, it seemed to improve some kids’ attention spans.

Something OTHER than a drug for ADHD?!?

Norway Halts Smartphone Contact Tracing App, While Other European States Roll Out Tech

By Aaron Kesel

Norway has suspended use of its smartphone app meant to track and trace those who have been diagnosed with covid. This is amid a roll out in other European countries of contact tracing spyware technology.

Geir Bukholm, an official at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health, said the decision to delete data and halt any further information gathering from the app “weakened the country’s preparedness” should the infection rate increase. The app was being tested in three municipalities before being halted, Associated Press reported...

Jay-Z’s TIDAL Is Currently Under Investigation for Data Fraud In Norway

The accusations for fraud first surfaced in 2018, when a sleuthing reporter at Norwegian publication Dagens Næringsliv discovered streaming manipulation around two exclusive albums: Kanye West’s Life of Pablo and Beyoncé’s Lemonade. Dagens initially secured a TIDAL hard drive, then cross-matched that data against other sources, before declaring that streams for both albums had been grossly inflated. In total, the two albums were allegedly padded with more than 320 million ‘fake streams,’ according to the finding.

...

Instead of receiving royalty checks that reflected their actual streams, other artists may have been handed payments based on manipulated, reduced play-counts.

We must fight YouTube's outrageous censoring of lockdown sceptics

For years, there has been a growing concern that Big Tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube which it owns, are not acting like neutral forums where users freely express their opinions. It is now time to say clearly and unequivocally that these are no longer allegations - they are observable facts.

A case in point being a recent discussion with Peter Hitchens on my YouTube show, TRIGGERnometry, in which he criticised the lockdown. Unlike a recent interview with Professor Karol Sikora on the website UnHerd, which was simply deleted by YouTube before being reinstated amid public outcry, the tech giant’s response to our video was far more insidious.

Instead of deleting it and allowing us the right of appeal, they simply “hid” the interview from searches on YouTube and Google.

Google faces $5 BILLION lawsuit for 'illegally invading the privacy of millions of users' by 'tracking their internet use through incognito mode'

The lawsuit seeks at least $5 billion, accusing the Alphabet Inc unit of surreptitiously collecting information about what people view online and where they browse, despite their using what Google calls Incognito mode.

Apple’s latest iOS 13.5 update contains contact tracing malware to enslave you

Some 23 countries, including the United States, have agreed to accept Apple’s latest iOS smartphone update, known as 13.5, which contains built-in contact tracing technology for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). But is it really a good idea to install it?

The reason we ask is because so-called contact tracing is not designed to keep you “safe,” despite what some authorities claim. It is designed to keep you enslaved by watching everything you do and tracking everywhere you go, all in the name of promoting “public safety.”

According to reports, both Apple and Google have released new software updates that come with “exposure notification,” a technology that can supposedly identify who has tested positive for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), as well as notify everyone who might have come in contact with that person.

YouTube censors video in which medical doctors said hydroxychloroquine might help treat COVID-19

The video report, presented by Sharyl Attkisson at Full Measure News, examined the possible benefits of hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for COVID-19 and the possible financial interest some parties have in downplaying the drug and promoting a separate treatment called remdesivir.

One of the doctors interviewed in the video, William O’Neill, tells Attkisson, also a Just the News contributor, that there is “some value” to hydroxychloroquine and “it has to be tested.”

O’Neill, a cardiologist in Detroit, has prescribed the drug to multiple patients and “saw improvement in all of them,” Attkisson reported.

At the Henry Ford Health System, where O’Neill works, officials are working with hydroxychloroquine and remdesivir. The doctor said the media campaign against the drug, which began around the time President Trump first started touting it, has left patients “scared to use the drug without any scientifically valid concern.”

Google Drive Takes Down Personal Copy Of "Plandemic"

If there was ever a time in history to pay attention, it’s now. It’s now obvious that we all need to keep our eyes and ears open to that which Big Tech and the government continue to censor to “save us” from “misinformation.” Google Drive, at the request of The Washington Post, has taken down a user’s personal copy of the movie “Plandemic.”

Ever since Big Tech platforms started cracking down on what they deem to be “coronavirus misinformation” (information they don’t want you to know about), the media has been willfully flagging alleged violations to social media companies and getting content taken down, reported News Break.

In other words, they want us to remain in a panic-induced state of fear and only listen to the mainstream media’s official Operation Mockingbird narrative about the entire Plandemic.

Last night, President Trump slammed Twitter for tagging several of his tweets touting the alleged risks of mail-in ballots as 'misinformation', with the president accusing the social media giant of interfering in the 2020 election.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Mr. President, a word, please; perhaps if you had been just a little more supportive of the independent media which played a more than significant role in getting you elected the first time, you might not be running into this problem now.

As we both know, mail-in voting can definitely lead to fraud; this has to go to the Supreme Court, and right when they re-convene, with the White House submitting an "amicus curiae" to them about this situation. Then, you are going to have to cross your fingers that they will feel strongly enough about this to rule in your favor.

IF not, sir, you will be consigned to become another "one term wonder" as President.

Exploiting COVID19, Big Tech Censors Become Big Brother

Citing concerns about “misinformation” surrounding the coronavirus, major social-media platforms and technology companies including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Google, and more are cracking down on free speech like never before. Facebook even created a panel to censor the social-media site that is dominated by foreigners who reject free speech and the U.S. Constitution’s First Amendment.

In the case of YouTube, the Big Tech giant literally said it will remove any content that goes against recommendations made by a corrupt United Nations agency that has been serving as a propaganda megaphone for Communist China. Top UN officials have also stepped up calls for Orwellian online censorship.

In short, the Silicon Valley elites and their Deep State allies want to do your thinking for you and determine what information you get to see — and what information to hide from you. They claim to believe you are too stupid to sort truth from fiction without their help. Seriously.

APPLE IOS 13.5 UPGRADE INCLUDES CONTACT TRACING API

SOURCE: TECHNOCRACY.NEWS
To upgrade or not to upgrade, that is the question. Fears of the worst sort are already cropping up as Apple has not made completely clear what software developers will be able to access and use the new core features that allow for Contact Tracing.

One tech journal notes,

Usage of the contact tracing API is user-optional. Additionally, exposure reports require the user to, once again, opt in to the notification, and it can only be done after the positive result is confirmed by one of the government agencies.

The first problem is that many iPhone users don’t have a clue what ‘user-optional’ means and if they do, they forget to disable the feature.

If you have a copy of Plandemic in your Google Drive, Google might try to surreptitiously delete it

Fake news empire The Washington Post is on a mission to make sure that every single copy of the popular Plandemic documentary film is removed from every last crevice of the internet.

The Jeff Bezos-owned, left-wing rag recently published an article in its “technology” section explaining that fake news employees of the paper are basically being paid to scour the web in search of Plandemic so they can report it to the hosting website and try to have it removed.

One perhaps unexpected place that the Post has had no trouble getting Plandemic removed from is Google Drive, a cloud-based file-sharing service that many Facebook users and YouTubers have been linking to whenever public copies of the film get censored or removed by Big Tech platforms.

THIS IS HUGE: Oregon Government Orders Facebook to Remove Gateway Pundit Article on Republican Ballot Scandal – Facebook Complies — Despite Hundreds of Confirmed Testimonies

Gateway Pundit readers may recall a recent story we did that shed light on hundreds, possibly thousands, of Oregon voters who mysteriously had their party changed, most from Republican to Non Affiliated, without their permission, consent or knowledge, effectively denying them the right to vote in their party’s primary and disqualifying them from being Precinct Committee Persons.

Today we found out the State Of Oregon is now working with Facebook to delete all mentions of this story.

Earlier today Facebook gave The Gateway Pundit a strike for posting this story even though we had 32 statements from different Oregon Republican voters to back up our report.

YouTube silences prominent epidemiologist for opposing coronavirus lockdowns

In its fight to stamp out “misinformation” about the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), Google-owned YouTube has silenced a prominent epidemiologist whose opinions and ideas about the pandemic contradict certain facets of the official narrative.

Dr. Knut M. Wittkowski, the former head of biostatistics, epidemiology and research design at Rockefeller University, was featured in a video about the virus that was recently posted to YouTube before being quickly removed from YouTube for violating the tech giant’s “community standards.”

The 65-year-old expert in viruses is a vocal critic of so-called “social distancing” and other government-imposed measures that supposedly aim to fight the pandemic. He has repeatedly warned that such measures are not helping but rather prolonging the crisis – and for this he is no longer welcome on YouTube.

As part of its war against courageous women who dare to challenge the status quo, Facebook has now blacklisted all links from Brighteon.com and NaturalNews.com following the user posting of a documentary featuring Dr. Mikovits — “Plandemic” — which questions the standard narrative about the coronavirus vaccine and the W.H.O.

Is COVID-19 breaching our online privacy?

Have you ever heard of a saying, "one should never waste a good crisis"? Well, that's exactly what giant tech corporations are doing right now. If you haven't heard already, Google and Apple are supposedly working together to fight and the COVID-19 pandemic.

But is there an ulterior motive behind it?

Based on intuition and all the news I've been consuming lately from credible sources, I think that Google, Apple, and other tech companies are simply building a privacy violation coronavirus tracking app.

Even though it's easy to think that Google and Apple are partnering up for the betterment of humanity, experts speculate that this uncanny partnership might be hiding something dark. After all, who knows what Apple and Google will do with all the personal information that they've collected about us.

Dystopian and disturbing: Big Tech censorship lumps together conspiracy loons and proper scientists

YouTube has set itself up as the world’s thought police over Covid-19 and is shutting down the voices of highly respected experts. This has dangerous consequences for us all, as scepticism and questioning gets us closer to truth.

As far as YouTube is concerned, it is the arbiter of what can and cannot be said about how to fight the threat posed by the coronavirus. Dissidents’ views must not be seen or heard on its channels! That is why it decided to clamp down on anyone who dares question the wisdom of the current lockdown.

YouTube’s censorious attitude is not confined to policing conspiracy theorists and flat-earth nutters, either. Recently, it has removed a video of the respected epidemiologist Dr Knut M Wittkowski’s discussion of how to understand and respond to the Covid-19 pandemic.

YouTube CEO: Users don’t like “authoritative” mainstream media channels but we boost them anyway

Over the last few years, YouTube and its executives have made it clear that when it comes to news and current events, “authoritative sources” (mainstream media outlets it deems to be trustworthy) will get boosted via the platform’s recommendation tools while independent creators who cover the news will be suppressed.

And during an interview on The New York Times’ “Rabbit Hole” podcast, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki admitted that most YouTube users don’t want to watch these “authoritative” sources but said the platform will continue to boost them anyway.

Israel linked to 'highly accurate' cyberattack on Iranian port: Report

Israel appears to be behind a cyberattack earlier this month on computers at Iran's Shahid Rajaee port that caused massive backups on waterways and roads leading to the facility, the Washington Post reported on Monday.

Citing unnamed US and foreign government officials, the Post said the 9 May disruption of Iranian computers was presumably in retaliation for an earlier attempted cyberattack on rural water distribution systems in Israel.

European Supercomputers Researching COVID-19 Outbreak Reportedly Hacked to Mine Cryptocurrency

Many of the supercomputers that suffered "security incidents" over the last week were reportedly being used for conducting research on the novel coronavirus outbreak, work that was apparently obstructed by the attacks.

Supercomputers in European countries including Germany, the UK and Switzerland were forced to shut down amid a series of intrusions made with the goal of installing cryptocurrency-mining malware, according to ZDNet. A similar "security incident" was reported from a high-performance computing centre in Spain. The malware reportedly saw the shutdown of the supercomputers as a means of restoring "a safe environment" and rewriting passwords and credentials.

Disastrous new Windows 10 update is causing serious issues for some people

While Windows 10 KB4556799 was supposed to be an important update for people running the two most recent versions of the operating system (May 2019 Update and November 2019 Update), it seems like it has in fact introduced a large number of problems instead.

The list of reported problems reads a bit like a ‘greatest hits’ of previous Windows 10 update errors, with almost everything accounted for. So, some users on the Microsoft forum are reporting the dreaded Blue Screen of Death, which appears when your PC encounters a severe problem and has to restart.

There have also been reports of a flickering white screen appearing after installing the update, system fonts being replaced and Windows 10 reverting back to the more limited S-Mode.

As if they weren’t annoying enough, one user found that Outlook searches are now broken, while Windows Latest is reporting that Windows 10 KB4556799 is causing audio issues for some people...

Why The COVID-19 Model That Inspired UK's Lockdown May Be "The Most Devastating Software Mistake Of All Time"

While Democrats in the US and progressives in the UK continue to push back against efforts to gradually reopen their respective economies, more evidence is emerging that calls into question the models (what the public often refers to as the "science") which inspired governments across the world to impose crippling lockdowns on their populations.

Case in point: Since Neil Ferguson and the authors of the Imperial published its modeling for non-pharmaceutical intervention for COVID-19, a number of data scientists have taken a close look and found gaping oversights that seriously undermine the model's credibility. Of course, this isn't the first time we have written about Ferguson and his exploits.

Government Could Enforce Who You're Allowed To Socialize With Via Tracking App

Authored by Paul Joseph Watson via Summit News,

In the “new normal” of social distancing, governments could dictate who you’re allowed to socialize with and punish wrongdoers via a smart phone tracking app.

Governments are now considering a post-lockdown world of “social bubbles,” which in the UK translates into a proposal to allow people to visit “10 friends and family.”

The Belgian government is also considering permitting people to have a designated list of people they can visit in order to keep the risk of transmitting COVID-19 low.

Psychologist Dr. Linda Papadopoulos said that people who have been locked down for two months unable to see friends or family “will see it as progress and a welcome development.”

However, the proposal is completely unenforceable without draconian state monitoring and surveillance.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I doubt seriously that this app will last for too long, without an "anti-app" being developed (and for which people will pay good money) which will turn off this tracking app.

Israel Perfecting Surveillance Tech

Israel’s external spy organization Mossad and its internal espionage equivalent Shin Bet have reputations that are much larger than their actual successes, but the one area where they have excelled is electronic intelligence gathering. Recent electronic spying around the White House and other federal buildings in Washington carried out by the Israeli Embassy demonstrates that Israel does not differentiate much between friends and enemies when it conducts espionage. In fact, spying targeting the U.S. is probably its number one priority due to the fact that the Jewish state is so heavily dependent on American support that it feels compelled to learn what discussions relating to it are taking place behind closed doors.

China Slams US As "Perpetrator Of Largest Cyber-Theft Worldwide" As FBI Issues 'High Alert' For Virus Data Hacks

US federal agencies say they are on high alert for cyberattacks out of China targeting health research and pharmaceutical companies in efforts to steal coveted and valuable coronavirus data and possible breakthrough solutions to the pandemic, such as vaccines and experimental treatments.

The Department of Homeland Security and the FBI further have issued a "public service announcement" of what they called a "significant threat", saying health research sectors "working on a COVID-19 response should all be aware they are the prime targets of this activity and take the necessary steps to protect their systems."

While over the past month some international health bodies as well as US agencies have singled out Iran as a main perpetrator of COVID-19 related data theft and hacks, US officials threw the spotlight on Beijing this week.

Senate Votes to Allow Law Enforcement Agencies to Access Browser History Without Warrant

The United States Patriot Act expands the powers of US authorities to surveil online activity and electronic devices. The renewal of the act before March 2020 was included in the November stop-gap legislation the following year.

The US Senate passed a bill by a single vote on Thursday that gives government agencies such as the FBI and CIA the right to access citizens browsing history without a warrant.

This means that authorities are not required to have probable cause to believe someone may have committed a crime before requiring their ISP to hand over web browsing and search history records.

Democrats move to consider virtual options for summer convention

Democrats are now acknowledging that the coronavirus may make it impossible to conduct the in-person convention in August that they'd envisioned, and they're taking steps to allow virtual or socially distanced elements.

Driving the news: The Democratic National Committee's Rules and Bylaws Committee meets Tuesday to consider a resolution giving the convention team "maximum flexibility to plan a safe event that guarantees every delegate can accomplish their official business without putting their own health at risk," per a DNC memo.

The resolution says the convention team "has the authority to make the necessary changes to the format, size, date or other aspects in order to conduct a safe convention."
Convention delegates will be allowed to participate either "in person or by means that allow for appropriate social distancing."
If the committee approves the resolution, it will then be voted on by all DNC members.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The candidate this move by the DNC will assist..... will most probably not be Joe Biden; I would nearly want to bet, that it would be Hillary Clinton, whose lust for another chance at "grabbing the brass ring" of the Democratic nomination for President, will be just too intense for her to ignore.

Also, many governors are giving their citizens the opportunity to vote by mail; this is another interesting avenue in the direction of potential vote fraud.

Hacker group ‘ShinyHunters’ sells more than 73 MILLION user records on the dark web from 10 online services including the StarTibune and Zoosk

More than 73 million user records have been stolen from a number of online services and are being sold on the dark web for a total of $18,000.

The hacker group, named 'ShinyHunters', scraped data from at least 10 companies including Zoosk, Chatbooks and the StarTribune.

The online dating app, Zoosk, had the largest breach, as the cybercriminals grabbed 30 million user record and Chatbooks came in second with 15 million, according to ZDNet.

Chatbooks is the only firm to acknowledge the attack, which said login credentials including names, email address and passwords were taken in the haul, along with some phone numbers and FacebookIDs.

Thunderbolt flaws affect millions of computers – even locking unattended devices won't help

A Dutch researcher has detailed nine attack scenarios that work against all computers with Thunderbolt shipped since 2011 and which allow an attacker with physical access to quickly steal data from encrypted drives and memory.

Researcher Björn Ruytenberg detailed the so-called Thunderspy attacks in a report published on Sunday, warning that the attacks work even when users follow security best practice, such as locking an unattended computer, setting up Secure Boot, using strong BIOS and operating system account passwords, and enabling full disk encryption.

Israel Mulls Response to Alleged Iranian Cyber Attack That Breaks 'All the Codes of War'

Tel Aviv has accused Tehran of targeting Israel in cyber attacks "on a daily basis", despite Iran denying the accusations and insisting that the country "does not engage in cyber warfare".

The Israeli "high-level security cabinet" has reportedly condemned an "Iranian cyber attack" on Tel Aviv's civil water infrastructure, according to the Times of Israel. The participants of the meeting were reportedly forced to sign confidentiality forms.

The alleged attack in question that reportedly took place in late April was described by one of Israeli officials as a "significant escalation" by Iran that "crossed a red line" as it targeted civil facilities. Officials note that the attack did little damage, despite minor problems reported in local councils.

“This is an attack that goes against all the codes of war. Even from the Iranians we didn’t expect something like this", the official said, quoted by the report.

Assange’s US Extradition, Threat to Future of Internet and Democracy

On Monday May 4, the British Court decided that the extradition hearing for WikiLeaks publisher Julian Assange, scheduled for May 18, would be moved to September. This four month delay was made after Assange’s defense lawyer argued the difficulty of his receiving a fair hearing due to restrictions posed by the Covid-19 lockdown. Monday’s hearing at Westminster Magistrates’ Court proceeded without enabling the phone link for press and observers waiting on the line, and without Assange who was not well enough to appear via videolink.
