The NSA Says It Will Finally Stop Spying On Millions of Americans at Midnight on Saturday

At midnight on Saturday, the federal government’s bulk data-gathering program for American phone conversations will come to an end at last. The move comes more than two years after former government contractor-turned whistleblower Edward Snowden released thousands of classified documents to Guardian journalists Glenn Greenwald, Laura Poitras and Ewen MacAskill. His disclosure triggering a movement that demanded the National Security Agency (NSA) stop spying on its own citizens. The story of the spying scandal was turned into the 2014 documentary Citizenfour, which won an Oscar the following year. According to NBC, after Saturday night the government must make a formal request to the telephone company any time it wants to examine a phone number that it suspects is linked to a terrorism case. The agency also cannot hold recorded phone calls without need. The move, granted by the passing of the USA Freedom Act last summer, was called “a first step but a modest one”by The Guardian’s MacAskill, adding that the NSA still has a huge capacity for surveillance: The problem – and it is a major one – is the reform applies only to phone records. The NSA can continue to harvest bulk communications from the internet and social […]

Wanted teen hacker says it’s ‘scary’ how easily he was able to leave Australia

At a time of heightenedSECURITY fears, a teenage hacker has left authorities red-faced and raised serious questions about borderSECURITY. Dylan Wheeler was just 17 when police charged him with being part of a group that allegedly hacked into theCOMPUTERS ofMICROSOFT and the US Army. He ended up fleeing the country, facing a possible 10-year jail sentence, even though he’d been ordered to surrender his passport. Now he’s told Lauren Day he has no regrets and no plans to return. DYLAN WHEELER, HACKER: To be honest, I don’t see it as on the run. I mean, what’s coming out of Australia now, I don’t really want to be associated with the politics. All these draconian laws, I don’t feel comfortable calling myself Australian. Really, I feel a lot better being free. LAUREN DAY, REPORTER: Dylan Wheeler’s not your average opinionated 19-year-old on a gap year. He’s wanted by police and his name is on a Europol list. If found guilty, he faces up to 10 years in jail. DYLAN WHEELER: At this point in time, I don’t plan to return to Australia. This is on the advice of human rights lawyers I’ve spoken to. Basically because I am not guaranteed a […]

FBI’s website is the easiest to hack says hacker who hacked FBI and Home Office from his bedroom

You would be surprised to know that one of the easiest sites to hack is of one of the giant law enforcement authority in the world and even more surprising is the fact that it belongs to United States. This organization is named Federal Bureau of Investigation. FBI is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States and is America’s primary law enforcement organisation. A 19 year old hacker, Charlton Floate, brought down FBI and Home Office websites from his bedroom. Speaking to BBC 5 Live Daily, Floate said that hacking FBI and US Home Office websites wasn’t much of a challenge. “It was surprisingly easy to be honest. It took me about 40 or 45 minutes,” he said. “The fact that the Home Office’s website was connected to its internal network was alarming in itself.” He added that even now Home Office is particularly vulnerable. “If you have passport files or something on the computers at the Home Office, they’re completely exploitable to someone who has an internet connection because they’re connected.” The 19 year old hacker from Solihull was convicted of hacking related crimes by Birmingham Crime Court. The self-styled internet and online marketing guru had previously admitted three charges […]

Anonymous says to ISIS: ‘War is unleashed’

The hacking group Anonymous redoubled its cyberwar against the Islamic State (IS) “to defend our values and our freedom” after Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris, which killed 129 civilians as they enjoyed a soccer match, dinner at a café or a rock concert. A number of videos from Anonymous-affiliated accounts appeared online this weekend in French, Italian, and English, with presenters wearing the hacking collective’s signature Guy Fawkes mask. “We are going to launch the most important operation ever carried out against you,” a robed figure warns in one video, as news footage of the attacks plays in the background. “War is unleashed. Prepare yourselves.” Source: http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Global-News/2015/1116/Anonymous-says-to-ISIS-War-is-unleashed

A ‘most private place’: Trust Google with your data above government bodies, says Alphabet’s Eric Schmidt

Google is the “safest and most private place” to store data, Alphabet Inc. executive chairman Eric Schmidt said this week as he addressed privacy concerns over data collected by Google’s machine- learning mechanisms. Machine learning is a branch of computer science in which algorithms are constructed to learn from data and make more accurate predictions over time. Google uses such mechanisms in a variety of its services, including improving its search engine services, filtering spam in Gmail and classifying users’ photos in its Google Photos app. “We work very hard to keep people’s data private and to give [them] control over it,” Schmidt said during a live video conference with reporters in Tokyo on Tuesday. “You can control what Google keeps of you … and we keep your data protected using incredibly powerful encryption.” Schmidt also condemned government hacking of technology companies, adding that Google is a safer place to entrust your data than government agencies or bodies. “We are upset that it appears that the US government and the Chinese government … have attacked computer companies without permission,” said Schmidt.

U.S. credit card firms ought to adopt biometrics over PIN, says Michigan senator

U.S. credit card firms ought to adopt biometrics in order to surpass the security standards of their European counterparts rather than simply catching up, according to a report by Fedscoop. Peters’ remarks come at a time when the chip-embedded credit cards rolling out in the U.S. fall short of the security features of credit cards in Europe. “Chip and signature [cards] … are actually behind where the Europeans and others [are], and we’ll probably leapfrog over that technology very rapidly to get into biometrics and other kinds of security measures,” said Michigan Senator Peters, who co-founded the Senate Payments Innovation Caucus earlier this year. Credit card firms in the U.S. have only recently been swapping out the old magnetic strip cards with new microchip-embedded cards, which creates a unique code for every transaction, ensuring that they are less susceptible to fraud. European credit card firms have been using this same chip technology for years. However, American chip cards simply require a signature for user verification, unlike European chip cards which opt for the more secure PIN system for authorization. Many retailers argue that chip and signature cards only partially protect consumers from fraud attacks and fail to offer any protection […]

Mentor TalkTalk hackers, don’t criminalise them, says cyberpsychologist

Mentor TalkTalk hackers, don’t criminalise them, says cyberpsychologist

Teenagers involved in online attacks such as the TalkTalk hack should be mentored rather than criminalised, to ensure society benefits from ‘their incredible skillset’, according to cyberpsychologist Mary Aiken. “As a society, do we really want to criminalise 13, 14 and 15 year olds? Or do we want to understand their behaviour, engage with their incredible skillset, mentor them and try to point them in the right direction,” she said at Web Summit this week. Police arrested a fourth individual in connection with the data breach this week: a 16-year-old boy in Norwich. It follows the arrests of three other individuals aged 15, 16 and 20 since the hack last month, which saw them steal thousands of TalkTalk customers’ personal details. Aiken suggested the focus should turn to the motivations behind such attacks, for example whether it was for profit or revenge. For example, she said, the hack on Sony last year was not motivated by the planned release of the film The Interview (which featured a plot to assassinate of Kim Jong-Un), which led many to conclude it had been orchestrated by North Korea. “If the motive was stopping the release of the movie, how come it got released […]

Judge says evidence is strong enough to keep Daniel Heinrich in jail

An FBI special agent detailed in federal court on Wednesday why Daniel Heinrich has suddenly emerged as the “person of interest” in the disappearance of Jacob Wetterling 26 years ago.

After hearing agent Shane Ball’s testimony, U.S. Magistrate Judge Tony Leung ruled that there was sufficient evidence to continue to detain the 52-year-old Annandale, Minn., man on charges of possessing and receiving child pornography.

Leung said Ball’s distillation of the evidence “creates quite frankly a chilling context and a gravity of danger to the community.”

Ball offered no new information beyond what was contained in 57 pages of court documents released last week, but his focus on several key elements explains why Heinrich has become the prime focus of investigators in the 1989 Wetterling abduction.
