“SAN FRANCISCO — The computer security world is bracing for the next bombshell from the massive Wikileaks document leak: disclosure of the actual computer code for the CIA’s alleged cyberweapons. . . .”

“. . . The prospect of what hackers could do with the code is “so mind-boggling that it’s difficult to categorize all the consequences,” says Robert Cattanach, a partner at international law firm Dorsey & Whitney and previously a trial attorney for the Justice Department. “As individuals, we would no longer have any reasonable expectation of privacy,” he said. . . .”   Read Complete Report

CIA spies on Senate. Here’s how to take back your digital privacy [FREE]

Spoleto, Italy

Back in March serious allegations came out of the Senate that the CIA was monitoring and even hacking Senate computers. They were denied vehemently at the time by CIA director John Brennan, who went so far as to say “that’s just beyond the scope of reason.”

Unsurprisingly, of course, the CIA has now come out saying that, yes, they did in fact spy on Senate aides’ computers. Oh, and that they’re sorry. Very sorry.

This is stuff that would have been a major scandal not too long ago, causing a public outcry for the heads of those responsible.

Although when I first found out about the close ties between Facebook and the passing of information to the CIA, FBI etc. I started to delete my Facebook account altogether, I changed my mind.  After all, if its a good enough source of information for those against the constitution and freedom it’s also a good source for those of us involved in the Education Revolution.  I now gather info from Facebook, but add little to their data-base. . .

Soon there may be a cellphone that can see though walls and into other objects as Caltech engineers have made tiny, low-cost terahertz imager chips that could be incorporated into cellphone cameras.

 

A secret agent is racing against time. He knows a bomb is nearby. He rounds a corner, spots a pile of suspicious boxes in the alleyway, and pulls out his cell phone. As he scans it over the packages, their contents appear onscreen. In the nick of time, his handy smartphone application reveals an explosive device, and the agent saves the day.

Sound far-fetched? In fact it is a real possibility, thanks to tiny inexpensive silicon microchips developed by a pair of electrical engineers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech). . . . Read Complete Report

But some fear that there isn’t enough built-in data protection for such devices.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has proposed a new unified standard for event data recorders for cars, commonly known as “black boxes.”

Such devices, which are already in use in 96 percent of 2013 model year cars, record various types of data that can be accessed in multiple ways. The agency also estimates that 92 percent of 2010 model year cars have “some EDR capability.” The NHTSA estimates that requiring EDRs would add just $20 in manufacturing costs to each car. . . .
