“New documents obtained by the New York Civil Liberties Union reveal that wireless E-ZPass tollbooth transponders are being read routinely throughout New York City to systematically collect location data about drivers.

At the NYCLU, we were surprised when we first heard this might be happening. In late 2013, NYCLU staff went on a car ride with a privacy activist who designed a cow-shaped device that mooed every time it detected signals on the same frequency that E-ZPass readers use. We listened as the cow mooed its way through Midtown and Lower Manhattan — though we weren’t at any toll plazas, something was reading the E-ZPass tag in our car.”

Another Massive Privacy Issue on Facebook : Facebook canceled a student’s internship after he highlighted a

Facebook canceled a student’s internship after he highlighted a massive privacy issue

Excerpt:

Facebook canceled a Harvard student’s internship after he created a Google Chrome plugin that highlighted serious privacy flaws in the social network’s messaging service, Boston.com reports.

In May, computer science and mathematics student Aran Khanna built Marauder’s Map. It was a browser plugin that made use of the fact that people who use the Facebook Messenger share their location with everyone they message with by default.

Upon installing the plugin, users could use it to precisely track the movements of anyone they were in a conversation thread with. This included users who they were not friends with on Facebook — and it was accurate to within a meter.”

Thought Crime? “FACEBOOK MONITORS YOUR PRIVATE MESSAGES AND PHOTOS FOR CRIMINAL ACTIVITY, REPORTS THEM TO POLICE”

Source link: http://www.blacklistednews.com/Facebook_Monitors_Your_Private_Messages_and_Photos_For_Criminal_Activity%2C_Reports_them_to_Police/45587/0/38/38/Y/M.html

From the source:

“Facebook has a new little known software that monitors your profile chat and pictures for criminal activity. The software will proceed to alert an employee at the company who will then decide whether to call authorities or not.

The software will monitor individuals who have a ‘loose’ relationship on social media networks, according to an interview with Facebook Chief Security Officer Joe Sullivan.

Reuters interview with the security officer explains, Facebook’s software focuses on conversations between members who have a loose relationship on the social network. For example, if two users aren’t friends, only recently became friends, have no mutual friends, interact with each other very little, have a significant age difference, and/or are located far from each other, the tool pays particular attention.

The scanning program looks for certain phrases found in previously obtained chat records from criminals, including sexual predators (because of the Reuters story, we know of at least one alleged child predator who is being brought before the courts as a direct result of Facebook’s chat scanning). The relationship analysis and phrase material have to add up before a Facebook employee actually looks at communications and makes the final decision of whether to ping the authorities.

“We’ve never wanted to set up an environment where we have employees looking at private communications, so it’s really important that we use technology that has a very low false-positive rate,” Sullivan toldReuters.

The software has been used to help gather information on potential murder suspects as well. In just one case, 62 pages of information, pictures, chat and posts where gathered and handed over to local authorities by Facebook in a recent subpoena request.

Facebook most likely wants to keep this software secret since most people do not think fondly of someone rummaging around their private messages and photos looking for criminal activities. Also how far is this system willing to go and will they soon pursue minor crimes or even thought crime?”

Google Wants Internet “Driver License”… WTF

Google Wants Internet “Driver License” Includes Various Digital Scenarios and Tests to Browse Web

What if you needed a license to log-in and use the Internet? The idea is not to far-fetched and could be right around the corner depending on the outcome of the TPP. Dr Carr-Gregg has collaborated with Google to create an internet “drivers license”, which he believes is a defining example of “technology companies starting to recognize their responsibilities”.

The test for the license puts young people in random digital scenarios and tests their internet surfing skills on what they would believe, what they’d click and how they would behave. This will give you a form of “digital citizenship”.

The  “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” has been testing a similar program.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation quickly responded pointing out concerns surrounding the NSTIC’s program.

According to the EFF website, “The White House recently released a draft of a troubling plan titled “National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” (NSTIC). In previous iterations, the project was known as the “National Strategy for Secure Online Transactions” and emphasized, reasonably, the private sector’s development of technologies to secure sensitive online transactions. But the recent shift to “Trusted Identities in Cyberspace” reflects a radical — and concerning — expansion of the project’s scope.

The draft NSTIC now calls for pervasive, authenticated digital IDs and makes scant mention of the unprecedented threat such a scheme would pose to privacy and free speech online. And while the draft NSTIC “does not advocate for the establishment of a national identification card” (p. 6), it’s far from clear that it won’t take us dangerously far down that road. Because the draft NSTIC is vague about many basic points, the White House must proceed with caution and avoid rushing past the risks that lay ahead. Here are some of our concerns.

The U.S. is already taxing citizens to drive in toll lanes, aka “Lexus Lanes”. Citizens in the U.S. are already paying taxes for the roads. These toll lanes are an extra commodity tax, and they are unconstitutional in nature.

Google eavesdropping tool installed on computers without permission

Google does not care about you, your privacy, your family, or your safety. They exist to make money. They are NOT a benign helpful utility, they sold you out a long time ago. Everything you do on the web is open for bidding like a cattle rancher’s auction. All your movements, clicks, actions, subs, and more are sold on the open market. They sold you out.

Quoted from the source:

“Privacy campaigners and open source developers are up in arms over the secret installing of Google software which is capable of listening in on conversations held in front of a computer.  First spotted by open source developers, the Chromium browser – the open source basis for Google’s Chrome – began remotely installing audio-snooping code that was capable of listening to users.  It was designed to support Chrome’s new “OK, Google” hotword detection – which makes the computer respond when you talk to it – but was installed, and, some users have claimed, it is activated on computers without their permission.  “Without consent, Google’s code had downloaded a black box of code that – according to itself – had turned on the microphone and was actively listening to your room,” said Rick Falkvinge, the Pirate party founder, in a blog post. “Which means that your computer had been stealth configured to send what was being said in your room to somebody else, to a private company in another country, without your consent or knowledge, an audio transmission triggered by … an unknown and unverifiable set of conditions.”
