The people can only blame themselves for buying and using Amazon products in my opinion. I have no idea what’s the point of buying products of centi billionaire company when you’re poor person having full time job 2000 pounds a month.
Then you buy their product and get frightened cuz it appears it is a possessed device. :grin:

Not sure if the network can help here, but it’s a crazy enough story , so it shouldn’t feel too out of place. :ship::ferry:

A post was split to a new topic: What if a site or app demands you release your location to use it? Won’t this nullify what the SAFE Network is supposed t protect?

The EU will implode in the next decade. No need to concern ourselves with anything from them

That would be sad, they are leading the world with GDPR!

Just reading Dug´s interview… and I read this which I think is fascinating!!

On the SAFE Network, each individual has to actively consent to each use of his or her data. What’s more, access to that data could be removed in the future. Data portability – best explained as the ability to take all of your personal data, including the links to your social circle and the history of your activities, when you leave a service such as Facebook – is a crucial part of the SAFE Network. If you don’t agree with the surveillance, you would no longer have to take it on accept it – you could simply move on, taking your data and preventing any further damage.

wow

This is an old one, but worth mentioning it:

These are the details of what happened: the classified intranet was supposed to be airgapped, and the antivirus updates were supposed to be done manually with thumb drives.
Someone thought it was too cumbersome so they connected directly to the internet bypassing the dmz while doing some maintenance by some outsourced contractor, and after finishing the maintenance forgot to unplug the jack.

The classified network stayed directly connected to the internet for more than a year

The hacker got control of the internal Hauri AV update servers in the DIDC network (Defense Integrated Data Center), which allowed them to implant malwares in the AV update… allowing them to simultaneously infect almost every single computer in the military cybercommand in one blow. (I find this amusing though, no controls of hashes and digital certificates? Or did the North Koreans also hack the signing keys from the AV company?)

The top secret plan for preemptive strike and decapitation of Kim Jong Un was codenamed OPLAN 5015, and it was exfiltrated in this attack and probably it is on Kim’s desk.

Then the OPLAN 3100 are the plans for defensive measure if North Korea initiates an attack to the South, also was exfiltrated in the hack.

Contingency plans and detailed reports on the military exercises were also leaked.

Let’s add this to the ever-increasing list of things that would have never happened on SAFE: the Chinese government’s censorship of WeChat communication sophisticatedly targets not just specific words, per se, but rather combinations of words. I guess people just have to resort to being “that guy” who sends strings of one-word texts…unless of course, those singular words also run afoul of “public sensibilities”…
