    Google Chrome Listening In To Your Room Shows The Importance Of Privacy Defense In Depth Yesterday, news broke that Google has been stealth downloading audio listeners onto every computer that runs Chrome, and transmits audio data back to Google. Effectively, this means that Google had taken itself the right to listen to every conversation in every room that runs Chrome somewhere, without any kind of consent from the people eavesdropped on. In official statements, Google shrugged off the practice with what amounts to “we can do that”.It looked like just another bug report. "When I start Chromium, it downloads something."...

    Call it the vacuum-cleaner approach. It's employed when police have obtained a court order and an Internet service provider can't "isolate the particular person or IP address" because of technical constraints, says Paul Ohm, a former trial attorney at the Justice Department's Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section. (An Internet Protocol address is a series of digits that can identify an individual computer.) That kind of full-pipe surveillance can record all Internet traffic, including Web browsing--or, optionally, only certain subsets such as all e-mail messages flowing through the network. Interception typically takes place inside an Internet provider's network at...

  • Local Cops Following Big Brother's Lead, Getting Cell Phone Location Data Without a Warrant

    Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) ^ | April 3, 2012 | Hanni Fakhoury
    New data from law enforcement agencies across the country has confirmed what EFF has long been afraid of: while police are routinely using cell phone location tracking information, only a handful of agencies are bothering to obtain search warrants. Since 2005, we've been beating the drum loudly, warning that the government's attempts to track a person's physical location through their cell phone requires a search warrant. As we've said again and again, because cell phone tracking can give the government a snapshot of a person's life through their movements, a search warrant is necessary to safeguard against privacy intrusions.

    EXPLODING THE PHONE The Untold Story of the Teenagers and Outlaws Who Hacked Ma Bell PHIL LAPSLEY Grove Press New York [pp. 92-97] If there were no billing records for fraudulent calls, there was no way to know how many fraudulent calls there were or how long they lasted. And that meant AT&T was gazing into the abyss. Say the phone company catches some college students with electronic boxes. Fantastic! But elation is soon replaced by worry. Is that all of them? Or is that just the tip of the iceberg? Are there another ten college students doing it? A...

The plane got as far as Cleveland: The unruly passenger that caused United Airlines flight 944 headed from Chicago to Frankfurt, Germany to make an unscheduled stop in Cleveland was arrested Monday. Stephen D. Anthony, the special agent in charge of the Cleveland Division of the FBI, and Chief Michael McGrath with the Cleveland Police Department announced Saleh...

    The hot topic in DC these days is cutting spending. Everybody is talking about it, but Rep. Cynthia Lummis from Wyoming is doing something about it. She has introduced a bill (HR1996) to end wasteful spending that should have been stopped years ago. The Government Litigation Savings Act will put an end to some of the ridiculous payments made to GAGs (Green Advocacy Groups) for far too many years. Here is a summary of legal fees paid to GAGs from your tax dollars: (source) 2003 – 10,595 individual payments totaling $1,081,328,420.00 2004 – 8,161 individual payments totaling $800,450,029.00 2005 –...

    What Is Your Next Step? The news saddens me as I peruse the different articles people have selected to post on Free Republic each day. I see fraud and lies exposed in the controversy of climate change. I see references to fraud in what Congress calls health care reform. I see constant evidence that the President lies, constantly. I see deficits that will result in a terrible burden on the nation’s children. I see news of more recession and possible depression. I see that the government has provided government employees with immunity from any recession. I see more news of...

    Citizenship and Immigration Minister Jason Kenney is free to disagree with the rights enjoyed by homosexuals, but he is not entitled to censor those legal protections in a document that purports to tell the story of Canada. A new citizenship study guide was issued last year to give immigrants a better and more complete understanding of Canada, including its strong attachment to collective and individual rights. It offered a more truthful picture of our history, warts and all, and noted that Canadians have both rights and responsibilities. The goal, in part, was to ensure that newcomers understood the country they...

    Ted Kennedy and John McCain joined President Bush today in the Rose Garden for the signing of the new Anti-Lock Bill. "Finally," said Sen. McCain, "we can put to rest the notion that we discriminate against anyone in their right to freely assemble anyplace they wish. Fortunately, seeing this as the state's rights issue that it is, we decided to require the states to see it our way." "I'm delighted for the bag people," President Bush added. "They have too long had their contributions overlooked in our society. They are decent, hard-working people doing litter patrol jobs that no one...

By Bob Berman DISCOVER Vol. 27 No. 09 | September 2006 | Space Throughout most of history, humanity hasn't had a clue about where it's going. The idea that we're all being whisked through space aboard a spinning Earth was alien even to brilliant thinkers like Aristotle and Pythagoras. The first to argue that our planet is in motion was Heracleides, who in 350 B.C. maintained that Earth turns on an axis. A century later, Aristarchus of Samos earned a lot of laughs...
