If Bush did one-tenth of what this moron is doing the MSM then would have had conniptions.
Provided, of course, you don’t use Tor, an offshore commercial VPN, or a free wireless connection.
Could one of you computer whizzes explain this in terms of FR? Does this program sweep in the titles or content of the articles we read on this site?
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!
To get onto The Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping List you must threaten to report me to the Mods if I dont add you to the list...
Anyone familiar with TOR or Albine for privacy? I’m looking for a good program and haven’t a clue.
Maxine Waters was right.
Impeachment File on Benghazi Coward B. Hussein Obama, formerly known as Barry Soetoro, currently a Legal Citizen of the Sovereign Nation of Indonesia.
Shut up !
It`s just another phony scandal/sarc off
The internet is a dangerous place.
Facebook, Twitter and any social network are dangerous, add to that the government using the internet to build a case against you and it is truly a dangerous place.
Name any person in the world and somewhere there is his picture ,his address, his medical records ,his family, his habits, his history of web sites visited.
xkeyscore ACCESSES a database of information. like a web browser.
the real question is...
what and/or who is filling the database and with what information?
digging into that will result in answers that will freak you out.
are they tapping your isp? yes.
your phones? yes.
your cable tv? yes.
your driving habits? yes.
your cell data? yes.
your credit card purchases? yes.
your medical history? yes
that’s all generally understood. what most people are unaware of is... your phone is ALWAYS an open mic. that audio data can/will be processed and pushed through voice recognition to produce a text document to be parsed
3.6 MB PDF of an NSA presentation obtained by Cryptome.org. Very interesting.
Funny how they named their program after an old universal password for opening cash registers “X-Key” and the new term for master key to XBOX 360 and other game consoles...
I do private Infosec work. I don’t have anything to hide but, i run with a lot of security just to annoy these .Gov creeps. Using a virtual machine is good advice. https://www.virtualbox.org/ Other good advice to consider here below.
Consider changing your browser homepage and search default. When your worried about your search use Startpage’s integrated proxy feature in the search results. https://startpage.com
Consider putting Truecrypt on your host if you want an elevated degree of the assurance of the confidentiality of your computer. Use a long strong pass PHRASE with it. http://www.truecrypt.org/
Consider the TOR browser package and/or VPN. https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en
Consider installing a NON-PERSISTENT RAMDrive program (there are free ones but i like “Primo’s”) and put a portable version of your preferred web browser program on it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_RAM_drive_software
Consider using Sandboxie in the RAMDrive to isolate the browser further against “hacks”. Optionally set the program to dump and wipe the contents of the sandbox on browser close. “Eraser” can be called for a secure wipe.
Consider using “Boxcryptor” if you use online storage. https://www.boxcryptor.com/
Consider annoying your friends to setup Mozilla Thunderbird with a service like GMail and integrate GPGP4Win for secure email. http://www.enigmail.net/home/index.php
Consider annoying your friends to all get the free Keytone app from the app store for secure voice and text on your mobile phones. https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/keytone-free!/id532401119?mt=8
But training materials for XKeyscore detail how analysts can use it and other systems to mine enormous agency databases by filling in a simple on-screen form giving only a broad justification for the search. The request is not reviewed by a court or any NSA personnel before it is processed.
and there it is...
Okay, so they’re collecting all this data about us. One day, when they will least expect it, all this info can be used against them, fun part is, they would have done all the work for us. Sad part is, it may not be in our lifetime.
The pendulum swings both ways.
Thanks for posting.
Ping for later reading.
My life details are pretty boring. But for other folks I’m sure all the snooping is a real concern.
Mostly I’m sad that future generations won’t know the simple life we had in the 1960’s, ‘70’s. Maybe at some point they will get tired of the constant monitoring, pull the plug, and toss all computers and cell phones. Rebel against the virtual world and its eye on you!
