The Multibillion-Dollar U.S. Spy Agency You Haven’t Heard of
On a heavily protected military base some 15 miles south of Washington, D.C., sits the massive headquarters of a spy agency few know exists. Even Barack Obama, five months into his presidency, seemed not to have recognized its name. While shaking hands at a Five Guys hamburger restaurant in Washington in May 2009, he asked a customer seated at a table about his job. “What do you [do]?” the president inquired. “I work at NGA, National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency,” the man answered. Obama appeared dumbfounded. “So, explain to me exactly what this National Geospatial…” he said, unable to finish the name. Eight years after that videotape aired, the NGA remains by far the most shadowy member of the Big Five spy agencies, which include the CIA and the National Security Agency.

Despite its lack of name recognition, the NGA’s headquarters is the third-largest building in the Washington metropolitan area, bigger than the CIA headquarters and the U.S. Capitol.

Completed in 2011 at a cost of $1.4 billion, the main building measures four football fields long and covers as much ground as two aircraft carriers. In 2016, the agency purchased 99 acres in St. Louis to construct additional buildings at a cost of $1.75 billion to accommodate the growing workforce, with 3,000 employees already in the city.

Whistleblower Uncovers London Police Hacking of Journalists and Protestors
The existence of a secretive unit within London’s Metropolitan Police that uses hacking to illegally access the emails of hundreds of political campaigners and journalists has been revealed. At least two of the journalists work for the Guardian .

Green Party representative in the British House of Lords, Jenny Jones, exposed the unit’s existence in an opinion piece in the Guardian. The facts she revealed are based on a letter written to her by a whistleblower.

The letter reveals that through the hacking, Scotland Yard has illegally accessed the email accounts of activists for many years, and this was possible due to help from “counterparts in India.” The letter alleged that the Metropolitan Police had asked police in India to obtain passwords on their behalf—a job that the Indian police subcontracted out to groups of hackers in India.

How Can I Protect Myself from Government Snoopers?
The UK has just passed the Investigatory Powers Act 2016, at the third attempt, and it will become law by the end of the year. The bill was instigated by the then home secretary, Theresa May, in 2012. It is better known as the snooper’s charter.

Jim Killock, the director of Open Rights Group, described it as the “most extreme surveillance law ever passed in a democracy”. It more or less removes your right to online privacy.

The law forces internet service providers to keep a record of all the websites – not the actual pages – you visit for up to a year. It also obliges companies to decrypt data on demand and gives government security services the power to hack your computers, tablets, mobile phones and other devices.

Privacy Experts Fear Donald Trump Running Global Surveillance Network
Privacy activists, human rights campaigners and former US security officials have expressed fears over the prospect of Donald Trump controlling the vast global US and UK surveillance network.

They criticised Barack Obama’s administration for being too complacent after the 2013 revelations by the NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden, and making only modest concessions to privacy concerns rather than carrying out major legislative changes.

The concern comes after Snowden dismissed fears for his safety if Trump, who called him “a spy who has caused great damage in the US”, was to strike a deal with Vladimir Putin to have him extradited.

Snowden, in a video link-up from Moscow with a Netherlands-based tech company on Thursday, said it would be “crazy to dismiss” the prospect of Trump doing a deal but if personal safety was a major concern for him, he would not have leaked the top-secret documents in the first place.

Linux Security Distros Compared: Tails vs. Kali vs. Qubes
If you're interested in security, you've probably already heard of security-focused Linux distros like Tails, Kali, and Qubes. They're really useful for browsing anonymously, penetration testing, and tightening down your system so it's secure from would-be hackers. Here are the strengths and weaknesses of all three.

It seems like every other day we hear about another hack, browser exploit, or nasty bit of malware. If you do a lot of your browsing on public Wi-Fi networks, you're a lot more susceptible to these types of hacks. A security-focused distribution of Linux can help. For most of us, the use cases here are pretty simple.

Surveillance Self-Defense Against the Trump Administration
Trump has repeatedly shown utter disrespect for the rule of law. He doesn’t believe in freedom of religion. He advocates torture. He has said he’ll instruct his Justice Department to investigate Black Lives Matter activists, and it’s likely he’ll appoint Rudy Giuliani, of New York City’s racist and unconstitutional “stop-and-frisk” fame, as his attorney general to do the investigating. The New York Times also reports that “Mr. Trump still privately muses about all the ways he will punish his enemies after Election Day.”

With Trump eager to misuse his power and get revenge on his perceived enemies, it’s reasonable to conclude there will be a parallel increase in abuse of power in law enforcement and the intelligence community. Activists who put their bodies on the line trying to protect basic rights — freedom of religion, freedom of speech, civil rights, reproductive rights, voting rights, privacy rights — will face the brunt of it.

Thanks to 16 years of relentless and illegal expansion of executive power under Presidents Bush and Obama, Trump is about to have more tools of surveillance at his disposal than any tyrant ever has. Those preparing for the long fight ahead must protect themselves, even if doing so can be technically complicated.

The best approach varies from situation to situation, but here are some first steps that activists and other concerned citizens should take.

How Much Surveillance Can Democracy Withstand?
Thanks to Edward Snowden's disclosures, we know that the current level of general surveillance in society is incompatible with human rights. The repeated harassment and prosecution of dissidents, sources, and journalists in the US and elsewhere provides confirmation. We need to reduce the level of general surveillance, but how far? Where exactly is the maximum tolerable level of surveillance, which we must ensure is not exceeded? It is the level beyond which surveillance starts to interfere with the functioning of democracy, in that whistleblowers (such as Snowden) are likely to be caught.

Despite Trump Fears, Snowden Sees a Hopeful Future
While we’re still two months away from an actual Trump presidency, tech companies and civil liberties advocates are already grappling with the question of what his ascendency means for privacy and surveillance. Among those weighing in? NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

“We are never farther than a single election away from a change in government, from a change in policy, from a change in the way the powers that we have constructed into a system are used,” Snowden said today in a moderated question-and-answer session sponsored by the UK-based search engine Start Page. That’s always been true but perhaps feels more vital now than ever.

President Obama Should Shut Down the NSA’s Mass Spying Before It’s Too Late
President Obama has just 71 days until Donald Trump is inaugurated as our next commander-in-chief. That means he has a matter of weeks to do one thing that could help prevent the United States from veering into fascism: declassifying and dismantling as much of the federal government’s unaccountable, secretive, mass surveillance state as he can — before Trump is the one running it.

How to Encrypt Your Entire Life in Less Than an Hour
Andy Grove was a Hungarian refugee who escaped communism, studied engineering, and ultimately lead the personal computer revolution as the CEO of Intel. He died earlier this year in Silicon Valley after a long fight with Parkinson’s disease.

When one of the most powerful people in the world encourages us to be paranoid, maybe we should listen.

And Grove isn’t the only powerful person urging caution. Even the director of the FBI — the same official who recently paid hackers a million dollars to unlock a shooter’s iPhone — is encouraging everyone to cover their webcams.

But you obey the law. What do you have to worry about? As the motto of the United Kingdom’s surveillance program reminds us, “If you’ve got nothing to hide, you’ve got nothing to fear.”

Well, law-abiding citizens do have reason to fear. They do have reasons to secure their devices, their files, and their communications with loved ones.

“If one would give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest man, I would find something in them to have him hanged.” — Cardinal Richelieu in 1641

In Scathing Ruling, Federal Court Says CSIS Bulk Data Collection Illegal
The Federal Court of Canada has faulted Canada’s domestic spy agency for unlawfully retaining data and for not being truthful with judges who authorize its intelligence programs. Separately, the court also revealed that the spy agency no longer needs warrants to collect Canadians’ tax records.

All this has been exposed in a rare ruling about the growing scope of Canadian intelligence collection disclosed by the court on Thursday. At issue is how the federal domestic spy service has been pushing past its legal boundaries in the name of collecting data, in hopes of rounding out the holdings of a little-known Canadian intelligence facility dubbed the “operational data analysis centre.”

Many corporations and government agencies are now gravitating toward so-called big data computer analytics that can predict patterns of future behaviour based upon records about what has happened in the past. Spy agencies are no different, and the centre in question appears to be the Canadian Security Intelligence Service’s equivalent of a crystal ball – a place where intelligence analysts attempt to deduce future threats by examining, and re-examining, volumes of data.

The Little-Known Company That Enables Worldwide Mass Surveillance
It was a powerful piece of technology created for an important customer. The Medusa system, named after the mythical Greek monster with snakes instead of hair, had one main purpose: to vacuum up vast quantities of internet data at an astonishing speed.

The technology was designed by Endace, a little-known New Zealand company. And the important customer was the British electronic eavesdropping agency, Government Communications Headquarters, or GCHQ.

Dozens of internal documents and emails from Endace, obtained by The Intercept and reported in cooperation with Television New Zealand, reveal the firm’s key role helping governments across the world harvest vast amounts of information on people’s private emails, online chats, social media conversations, and internet browsing histories.

NSA Could Put Undetectable “Trapdoors” in Millions of Crypto Keys
As with all public key encryption, the security of the Diffie-Hellman protocol is based on number-theoretic computations involving prime numbers so large that the problems are prohibitively hard for attackers to solve. The parties are able to conceal secrets within the results of these computations. A special prime devised by the researchers, however, contains certain invisible properties that make the secret parameters unusually susceptible to discovery. The researchers were able to break one of these weakened 1,024-bit primes in slightly more than two months using an academic computing cluster of 2,000 to 3,000 CPUs.

Surveillance in the Post-Obama Era
During his 2008 campaign, President Obama vowed to assert greater oversight of the massive surveillance apparatus built in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, arguing that the United States needed to strike a better balance between privacy and security and that all intelligence programs should be lawful.

“I will provide our intelligence and law enforcement agencies with the tools they need to track and take out the terrorists without undermining our Constitution and our freedom,” Mr. Obama said in 2007.

Once in office, however, the Obama White House failed to meaningfully scale back surveillance practices established by Mr. Obama’s predecessor, including the unlawful bulk collection of Americans’ domestic phone call records.

Anything else, and the device is wide open to balaclava-wearing hackers.

Digital devices and software programs are complicated. Behind the pointing and clicking on screen are thousands of processes and routines that make everything work. So when malicious software—malware—invades a system, even seemingly small changes to the system can have unpredictable impacts.

That’s why it’s so concerning that the Justice Department is planning a vast expansion of government hacking. Under a new set of rules, the FBI would have the authority to secretly use malware to hack into thousands or hundreds of thousands of computers that belong to innocent third parties and even crime victims. The unintended consequences could be staggering.

Police forces across the United States are stockpiling massive databases with personal information from millions of Americans who crossed paths with officers but were not charged with a crime.

A person can end up in one of these databases by doing nothing more than sitting on a public park bench or chatting with an officer on the street. Once there, these records can linger forever and be used by police agencies to track movements, habits, acquaintances and associations – even a person’s marital and job status, The Post and Courier found in an investigation of police practices around the nation.

Privacy and Control Need to be Put Back into the Hands of the Individual
Corruption and oppression go hand in hand. Nothing exemplifies this more than the recent news from China that their corrupt and oppressive government has recently shut down several online news operations. These include political and social news sites together with social network accounts. The harsh rhetoric used by the Department of Mind Control shows how much the Chinese government despises those entities and individuals whose only goal is to distribute news and information and give all people a voice. State controlled media is the name of the game in China and the single-party state is not content to just ban Facebook and Twitter but it is going after homegrown networks also.

We see this trend worldwide where governments want to stifle dissent in order to stay in power and, in the worst of cases, wanting to cover up human rights abuses.

All the Ways Your Wi-Fi Router Can Spy on You
When those devices connect to a router, they send requests for information—a weather forecast, the latest sports scores, a news article—and, in turn, receive that data, all over the air. As it communicates with the devices, the router is also gathering information about how its signals are traveling through the air, and whether they’re being disrupted by obstacles or interference. With that data, the router can make small adjustments to communicate more reliably with the devices it’s connected to.

But it can also be used to monitor humans—and in surprisingly detailed ways.

As people move through a space with a Wi-Fi signal, their bodies affect it, absorbing some waves and reflecting others in various directions. By analyzing the exact ways that a Wi-Fi signal is altered when a human moves through it, researchers can “see” what someone writes with their finger in the air, identify a particular person by the way that they walk, and even read a person’s lips with startling accuracy—in some cases even if a router isn’t in the same room as the person performing the actions.

Report Claims Intel CPUs Contain Enormous Security Flaw
For the last ten years, Intel has built remote management technology into various motherboards and processors. The Intel Active Management Technology (AMT) system provides system administrators with a method of remotely controlling and securing PCs that functions independently of the operating system, hard drive, or boot state. It’s even capable of running when the system is off, provided the computer is still connected to line power and a network card. AMT doesn’t depend on the x86 processor directly — instead, it’s implemented through a 32-bit Argonaut RISC Core (ARC) CPU that’s integrated into all Intel processors. This microcontroller is part of the Intel Management Engine and is implemented on all Intel CPUs with vPro technology.

A new article on BoingBoing argues that Intel’s implementation of the IME and the microcontroller that runs it are fundamentally insecure, cannot be trusted, and could be used to perform potentially devastating exploits. Intel has publicly revealed very little about the precise function of its onboard microprocessor and the security system that guards it — and that, in turn, means that the company is essentially relying on security through obscurity to secure its own standard.

In May 2016, we uncovered a Twitter-based digital malware campaign seemingly orchestrated by the United Arab Emirates, which resulted in the arrest and torture of numerous activists and journalists there. Over several years and a dozen reports, we have seen numerous autocratic regimes, like Ethiopia and Sudan, purchase sophisticated spyware made by Italian and British firms and use it to monitor and infiltrate human rights groups and journalists in their countries and abroad.

In 2013, we discovered that the same attacks China uses to compromise governments and industry are used to compromise human rights, ethnic, religious groups and pro-democracy movements. In 2015, we uncovered a Latin American malware campaign targeting journalists, activists and political opposition groups in several countries, including special Argentinian prosecutor Alberto Nisman, who was found dead of a gunshot under suspicious circumstances.

Does your web browser have a unique fingerprint? If so your web browser could be tracked across websites without techniques such as tracking cookies. Additionally the anonymisation aspects of services such as Tor or VPNs could be negated if websites you visit track you using your browser fingerprint. This service is designed to test how unique your web browser's fingerprint is, and hence how identifiable your browser is.

Your Battery Status is Being Used to Track You Online
The battery status API was introduced in HTML5, the fifth version of the code used to lay out the majority of the web, and had already shipped in Firefox, Opera and Chrome by August 2015. It allows site owners to see the percentage of battery life left in a device, as well as the time it will take to discharge or the time it will take to charge, if connected to a power source.

Intended to allow site owners to serve low-power versions of sites and web apps to users with little battery capacity left, soon after it was introduced, privacy researchers pointed out that it could also be used to spy on users. The combination of battery life as a percentage and battery life in seconds provides offers 14m combinations, providing a pseudo-unique identifier for each device.

British Spies Used a URL Shortener to Honeypot Arab Spring Dissidents
A now-defunct free URL shortening service — lurl.me — was set up by GCHQ that enabled social media signals intelligence. Lurl.me was used on Twitter and other social media platforms for the dissemination of pro-revolution messages in the Middle East.

These messages were intended to attract people who were protesting against their government in order to manipulate them and collect intelligence that would help the agency further its aims around the world. The URL shortener made it easy to track them.

Edward Snowden Designs Phone Case to Show When Data is Being Monitored
Edward Snowden has helped design a mobile phone case called the “introspection engine” that, he claims, will show when a smartphone is transmitting information that could be monitored.

Presenting via video link to event at the MIT Media Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Snowden and co-designer Andrew “Bunnie” Huang showed how the device connects to a phone’s different radio transmitters, showing its owner knows when a cellular, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connection is being used to share or receive data.

Chinese Satellite is One Giant Step for the Quantum Internet
China is poised to launch the world’s first satellite designed to do quantum experiments. A fleet of quantum-enabled craft is likely to follow.

First up could be more Chinese satellites, which will together create a super-secure communications network, potentially linking people anywhere in the world. But groups from Canada, Japan, Italy and Singapore also have plans for quantum space experiments.

China Will Start Prohibiting Ad Blocking on September 1st
The ad blocking industry is facing a stark challenge from the Chinese government. China’s new Internet Advertising laws includes wording that explicitly prohibits “tampering with or blocking other businesses’ advertisements.” The “Internet Advertising Interim Rules” were drafted after the tragic death of Wei Zixi, a cancer patient that underwent an unsuccessful experimental cancer treatment, earlier this year. Wei only chose the experimental treatment because it showed up as a top advertised suggestion on Baidu, the leading search engine behind the Great Firewall. Before his death, Wei publicly accused Baidu of having a monopoly on the online Chinese advertising industry that allows misleading or false ads to fool unwitting customers. The resulting public outcry prompted the government to hurriedly investigate internet advertising and draft a new set of rules. China’s new Internet Advertising Interim Rules will go into effect on September 1st, 2016.

U.S. to Allow Foreigners to Serve Warrants on U.S. Internet Firms
The Obama administration is working on a series of agreements with foreign governments that would allow them for the first time to serve U.S. technology companies with warrants for email searches and wiretaps—a move that is already stirring debates over privacy, security, crime and terrorism.

Brad Wiegmann, a senior official at the Justice Department, discussed the administration’s efforts during a public forum on Friday at a congressional office building in Washington, D.C. The first such agreement is being assembled with the U.K., he said.

Russia Asks for the Impossible With its New Surveillance Laws
It’s been a rough month for Internet freedom in Russia. After it breezed through the Duma, President Putin signed the “Yarovaya package" into law—a set of radical “anti-terrorism” provisions drafted by ultra-conservative United Russia politician Irina Yarovaya, together with a set of instructions on how to implement the new rules. Russia’s new surveillance laws include some of Bad Internet Legislation’s greatest hits, such as mandatory data retention and government backdoors for encrypted communications—policies that EFF has opposed in every country where they’ve been proposed.

As if that wasn’t scary enough, under the revisions to the criminal code, Russians can now be prosecuted for “failing to report a crime.” Citizens now risk a year in jail for simply not telling the police about suspicions they might have about future terrorist acts.

Anbefalet brev afleveret til en forkert modtager
Datatilsynet vender hermed tilbage til sagen, hvor Danmarks Statistisk den 18. februar 2015 orienterede Datatilsynet om, at en anbefalet postforsendelse fra Statens Serum Institut (SSI) til Danmarks Statistik ved en fejl var blevet afleveret til Chinese Visa Application Centre. Brevet, som indeholdt to cd’er med data, var åbent, da Danmarks Statistik modtog det.

Efter anmodning fra Datatilsynet er SSI fremkommet med udtalelser den 20. marts og 10. september 2015.

De to cd’er indeholdt data om 5.282.616 personer bosat i danske kommuner mellem 2010 og 2012. Cd’erne indeholdt oplysninger om personnumre og helbredsoplysninger, men ikke navn og adresse. Cd’erne var IKKE krypterede.

The Scary Way Pokémon Go is Making Money Off You
In just one week, Nintendo’s augmented reality game Pokémon Go has become the most successful mobile app in history. The game uses geolocation to place Pokémon characters in the physical world for you to collect. It has been downloaded a reported 15 million times in the U.S, with the user base already overtaking longtime social media stalwarts like Twitter. The average Apple iPhone user is spending more time on the game than Facebook or Snapchat.

NSA Tracking Cellphone Locations Worldwide
The National Security Agency is gathering nearly 5 billion records a day on the whereabouts of cellphones around the world, according to top-secret documents and interviews with U.S. intelligence officials, enabling the agency to track the movements of individuals — and map their relationships — in ways that would have been previously unimaginable.

The records feed a vast database that stores information about the locations of at least hundreds of millions of devices, according to the officials and the documents, which were provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. New projects created to analyze that data have provided the intelligence community with what amounts to a mass surveillance tool.

Signal
Signal is an encrypted instant messaging and voice calling application for Android and iOS. It uses end-to-end encryption to secure all communications to other Signal users. Signal can be used to send and receive encrypted instant messages, group messages, attachments and media messages. Users can independently verify the identity of their messaging correspondents by comparing key fingerprints out-of-band. During calls, users can check the integrity of the data channel by checking if two words match on both ends of the call.

He Was a Hacker for the NSA and He Was Willing to Talk. I Was Willing to Listen.
When most of us think of hackers, we probably don’t think of government hackers. It might even seem odd that hackers would want to work for the NSA — and that the NSA would want to employ them. But the NSA employs legions of hackers, as do other agencies, including the FBI, CIA, DEA, DHS, and Department of Defense. Additionally, there are large numbers of hackers in the corporate world, working for military contractors like Booz Allen, SAIC, and Palantir. The reason is elegantly simple: You cannot hack the world without hackers.

Japan's Top Court has Approved Blanket Surveillance of the Country's Muslims
Japan's Supreme Court has upheld the government's blanket surveillance of the country's Muslim community.

The court struck down the second appeal by Japanese Muslim plaintiffs against what they perceive as an unconstitutional invasion of their privacy and freedom of religion.

A 2010 leak of 114 police files revealed nationwide surveillance of Japanese Muslims. The files revealed that Muslim places of worship, halal restaurants and Islam-related organisations across the capital, Tokyo, were being monitored.

Mark Zuckerberg Covers His Laptop Camera. You Should Consider It, Too.
Mark Zuckerberg is one of the most powerful men in the world because billions of people give Facebook, which he founded, free access to their personal data. In return, users receive carefully curated snapshots of his life: baby photos, mundane office tours and the occasional 5K.

On Tuesday, observers were reminded that Mr. Zuckerberg, 32, is not just a normal guy who enjoys running and quiet dinners with friends. In a photo posted to his Facebook account, he celebrated the growing user base of Instagram, which is owned by Facebook. An eagle-eyed Twitter user named Chris Olson noticed that in the image’s background, his laptop camera and microphone jack appeared to be covered with tape.

Intel x86s Hide Another CPU That Can Take Over Your Machine (You Can't Audit It)
Recent Intel x86 processors implement a secret, powerful control mechanism that runs on a separate chip that no one is allowed to audit or examine. When these are eventually compromised, they'll expose all affected systems to nearly unkillable, undetectable rootkit attacks. I've made it my mission to open up this system and make free, open replacements, before it's too late.

The Intel Management Engine (ME) is a subsystem composed of a special 32-bit ARC microprocessor that's physically located inside the chipset. It is an extra general purpose computer running a firmware blob that is sold as a management system for big enterprise deployments.

The only problem with that notification was that Dropbox didn’t have a breach; the data appears instead to have come from another breach revealed this week at social network Tumblr.

Why You Should Bet Big on Privacy
The whole idea behind privacy by design is to provide protection now and in the future, regardless of governance, corruption and security breaches. When done right, privacy can vastly reduce the impact of attacks on your business and reputation, since there would be no sensitive data to leak.

Ideally though, we shouldn’t care about privacy. Not because it’s unimportant, but rather because it would be by default in everything, offering an ethical baseline that makes us feel safe. We shouldn’t have to worry about our privacy, just as we shouldn’t have to worry about war, discrimination, hunger, disease or money.

If you are a CEO, you have two choices: be in denial, ignore privacy and risk your company disappearing if the market turns; or, be a forward-thinking leader who embraces it as a strategic advantage, thereby building a future-proof organization that is both ethical and beneficial to society.

Going Dark: Online Privacy and Anonymity for Normal People
Last week we got news of the Rosebutt data breach. This is a very particular class of site and like many others we've recently seen compromised, it's highly likely that members would have preferred to keep their identities secret. It doesn't matter if you don't agree with the lifestyle choice of those on the site and certainly I myself am not one to look around the house at everyday items and think "I wonder if that could...". That's entirely beside the point though which is that a bunch of consenting adults now have their identities in the hands of an untold number of people who are willingly sharing the data around web. But it didn't have to be that way.

Developer of Anonymous Tor Software Dodges FBI, Leaves US
The FBI's attempts to break into Tor are starting to manifest in strange ways.

FBI agents are currently trying to subpoena one of Tor's core software developers to testify in a criminal hacking investigation, CNNMoney has learned.

But the developer, who goes by the name Isis Agora Lovecruft, fears that federal agents will coerce her to undermine the Tor system -- and expose Tor users around the world to potential spying.

That's why, when FBI agents approached her and her family over Thanksgiving break last year, she immediately packed her suitcase and left the United States for Germany.
