Vendors, Disclosure, and a bit of WebUSB Madness

Hacker Breaches Securus, the Company That Helps Cops Track Phones Across the US - Motherboard
"Last week, the New York Times reported that Securus obtains phone location data from major telcos, such as AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon, and then makes this available to its customers. The system by which Securus obtains the data is typically used by marketers, but Securus provides a product for law enforcement to track phones in the US nationwide with little legal oversight, the report adds. In one case, a former sheriff of Mississippi County, Mo., used the Securus service to track other law enforcement official’s phones, according to court records."

American society has come to follow the same logic as the glitch-hunting AIs, and in the process, we’ve become vulnerable to these glitches, at an increasingly large scale. "
