China's long game to dominate nuclear power relies on the UK | Environment | The Guardian
While Germany and other western countries have turned their backs on nuclear, the UK is strongly committed to new nuclear to meet its carbon goals and this means, despite security concerns, the government needs Chinese involvement. [...] But the company is open about the bigger prize – the UK as a springboard for exporting Chinese nuclear technology to other countries.

NSA's Hacker-in-Chief: We Don't Need Zero-Days To Get Inside Your Network | Motherboard
“I think a lot of people think the nation states are running on this engine of zero-days. You go out with your skeleton key and unlock the door and you're in. It's not that,” he said. “I will tell you that persistence and focus will get you in, will achieve that exploitation without the zero-days,” he continued “There's so many more vectors that are easier, less risky and quite often more productive than going down that route.”

Überwachung in Großbritannien: Neues Gesetz vorgestellt - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Werbekampagne hat sich gelohnt. Am heutigen Mittwoch veröffentlichte Innenministerin Theresa May einen Gesetzentwurf (hier als PDF), der britischen Geheimdiensten noch mehr Macht verspricht. Die Spione können, sobald die sogenannte Investigatory Powers Bill vom Parlament verabschiedet wird, ganz legal das tun, was sie bislang ohne solide rechtliche Grundlage machten. Gleichzeitig sagte Innenministerin May, sie wolle die Aufsicht über die Geheimdienste stärken. [...] Theresa May betonte im Parlament, dass es nicht darum gehe, den gesamten Browserverlauf zu speichern, sondern nachvollziehen zu können, mit wem Verdächtige kommunizieren.

Xi Jinping state visit: UK and China sign cybersecurity pact | Politics | The Guardian
[ this is just show: https://wikileaks.org/nsa-germany/selectors.html // look at cable gate. what officials wrote and what was said in-front of cameras and press. ] Cameron said the two nations had signed a “high-level security dialogue” on cybercrime, aimed at stopping attacks on companies either to gain access to intellectual property or confidential information or to disable systems. The deal mirrors one agreed between China and the US last month, but which the American monitoring group CrowdStrike believes was violated almost immediately. GCHQ has reported “disturbing” levels of cyber-attacks on British companies, which are thought mostly to originate in Russia and China. The agreement is the first time that Britain and China have committed to work together on cybersecurity.

Russland und Syrien: Das Ende der alten Weltordnung - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Viel wichtiger aber ist, nach vorne zu schauen. Die alten Sicherheitsstrukturen aus dem vergangenen Jahrhundert taugen nicht mehr. Nach dem Ende des ersten Kalten Krieges haben die Regierungen versäumt, sie weiterzuentwickeln und sich naiv auf der Friedensdividende ausgeruht. Der Krieg in der Ukraine und das russische Abenteuer in Syrien sind die Folge dieses Versagens. Die eigene Sicherheit oder Einflusssphäre auf Kosten anderer erhöhen zu wollen, führt nicht zu mehr, sondern zu weniger Sicherheit und Stabilität. Europa braucht deshalb neue Absprachen über Sicherheit und Zusammenarbeit. Europa braucht ein neues Helsinki.

U.S. and China Seek Arms Deal for Cyberspace - The New York Times
In the last year there have been devastating Chinese hacks of American computer systems, and the U.S. government has floated the idea of sanctioning China in response. Here's the apparent response: A noticeable downtick in significant hacks of American networks, and news that the U.S. and China are working on a cybersecurity arms deal, ahead of Chinese President Xi Jinping's Thursday arrival in America. The proposed agreement would supposedly prevent either nation from attacking the other's "critical infrastructure" during peacetime.

U.S. developing sanctions against China over cyberthefts - The Washington Post
[ double standard. probably know that they will be outed come time to have e-mailed trade secrets of other nations big companies to their own national companies, even if it is just for infrastructure or defense contract bids ] The White House is getting ready to issue "unprecedented economic sanctions" against Chinese companies and individuals "who have benefited from their government’s cybertheft of valuable U.S. trade secrets," says the Washington Post. But the Post doesn't explain what those sanctions would be, or why the U.S. is going after individual targets instead of the Chinese government itself. One thing that is clear: Chinese president Xi Jinping is scheduled to visit the U.S. next month.

Google’s $6 Billion Miscalculation on the EU - Bloomberg Business
via https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=10021018 // Google declined to make its executives available for on-the-record interviews, but several concede that the company was caught off guard by the intensity of European criticism, in large part because of its broad popularity with users. Google is so relied upon that many people casually assert that the most prevalent search term on rival Bing is, in fact, “Google.” (Microsoft declines to confirm this.) [...] The more Europeans rely on Google, however, the more they’ve come to fear it, making it an easy target for politicians. Last November members of the European Parliament voted 384 to 174 for a symbolic proposal to break up the search giant into two separate pieces—its monolithic search engine and everything else.

Russia will fork Sailfish OS to shut out pesky Western spooks
Paranoia over NSA tampering spurs de-Westernisation drive // well only the Paranoid survive. [...] Russia’s Minister of Communications and Mass Media, Nikolai Nikiforov, has taken part in talks to form a consortium that will aid Russia in developing a custom mobile OS, reportedly a forked version of Jolla’s Sailfish OS, to lessen its dependence on Western technology. Nikiforov held a working meeting last week with the leadership of Hong Kong-based Sailfish Holdings, developer of the quietly admired Sailfish OS. Alongside other participants, the parties involved discussed the use of open-source software in the public and private sectors, taking into account technical, economic and political factors, the latter of which is expected to include United States’ interference with exported technologies.

Pressure mounts over claims Police Scotland breached rules over spying on journalists (From Herald Scotland)
PRESSURE is mounting on ministers to take action on Police Scotland amid further criticism of the force over claims it illegally spied on a journalist to uncover sources. The force's elite Counter Corruption Unit (CCU) is said to have snooped on the reporter without getting judicial approval - a tactic which was banned on March 25 following a row over officers using the Regulation of Investigatory Powers Act (Ripa) to access journalists’ phone records, texts and emails. // [ endemic and systemic! you are not safe. period. ] // &! bbc.in/1OQEaGJ - Ministers questioned over Police Scotland 'spying' claims // &! bbc.in/1KUFPu9 &! bbc.in/1Maojno << time to get their story right!?

Griechenland-Krise: Wir verspielen Europa - Kommentar - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die Griechen können sich per Referendum aus dem Euro wählen, die Briten über einen EU-Austritt abstimmen: Europa droht auseinanderzubrechen - weil wir alle uns zu wenig dafür einsetzen. [...] Griechenland drohen der Staatsbankrott und ein chaotisches Ausscheiden aus der Eurozone. Die Briten sollen in einigen Monaten über den Verbleib in der EU abstimmen. Eine gemeinsame europäische Strategie für den Flüchtlingsansturm über das Mittelmeer ist nicht in Sicht. Die Geheimdienst-Ausspähungen haben die USA und Europa einander entfremdet, während Russland an einer undurchsichtigen Expansionsstrategie arbeitet.

Snowden documents show spy agencies exploiting issues with China’s most popular browser | PandoDaily
New reports from CBC News and the Intercept show that intelligence agencies in Canada, the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom, and New Zealand exploited vulnerabilities in Alibaba’s UC Browser to surveil 500 million people. The agencies also planned to use various app stores to distribute their spyware. The reports indicate that UC Browser offered up all kinds of information about its users. This is notable because it’s the most popular Web browser in China and has an estimated 500 million users, making it a valuable target for spying. The problems are said to be limited to the Android version of the Web browser.

Law changed to allow GCHQ hacking ... just as GCHQ hauled into court for hacking • The Register
[ unaccountable, free for all to hack anything that is in the domestic interest, can be corporate intelligence, trade secrets, patents, corporate documents & communications; Russia, China, Germany, Brazil, India. The NEW COLD WAR. see also 2015 BND affair with selectors. ] Government legislation to exempt GCHQ from prosecution on charges of illegal hacking has been passed and come into effect – apparently torpedoing an ongoing claim against the surveillance agency being heard by the Investigatory Powers Tribunal. Last July, a coalition of internet service providers and international organisations teamed up with Privacy International to take legal action against GCHQ. Their claim, which arrived in court today, has been hobbled by what the privacy warriors said was the revelation that the government had quietly ushered through legislation amending the Computer Misuse Act to exempt GCHQ and law enforcement from prosecution, and did so while the case was ongoing.

No-Spy-Abkommen ǀ Wie Deutschlands Regierung die Wähler belog — der Freitag
2013 wuchs im Zuge der Snowden-Enthüllungen der Druck auf die Bundesregierung, ein No-Spy-Abkommen mit den USA abzuschließen. Dieses sollte die US-Behörden verpflichten, auf deutschem Hoheitsgebiet nur noch im Rahmen deutscher Gesetze zu agieren. Die Bundesregierung behauptete damals, in Verhandlungen zu stehen, die aber im Januar 2014 für gescheitert erklärt wurden. Das, so belegen aktuelle Recherchen eines Journalisten-Zusammenschlusses, war gelogen. Für die USA stand ein derartiges Abkommen nie zur Debatte.

John Oliver Edward Snowden Interview - YouTube
language shapes thoughts. how you communicate and on what level. US elected official talk is always about "keeping America and Americans, safe." what % of baby boomers or millennial do knows what meda data, profiling, and big data is or do or how it can be leveraged. they know what a selfie and a selfie stick is. That's why Career Politicians and Lobby organisations hire PR people. CORPORATE (Wall Street) PR PEOPLE!!! Talking 5 minutes to the nation and saying nothing at all of concrete notion, IS CORPORATE PR SPEAK. Setting the tone for the public discourse, its sort of art and honed down to a science. // &!

The NSA Reportedly Stole Millions Of SIM Encryption Keys To Gather Private Data | TechCrunch
The American National Security Agency (NSA), and the British Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ), similar clandestine intelligence agencies, stole SIM card encryption keys from a manufacturer, allowing the groups to decrypt global cellular communications data. [...] “NSA and GCHQ basically have the keys to decyrpting mobile communications anywhere in the world, even without the participation of local communication carriers (which, even if not much, acts as some check on intelligence agency behavior). It’s the equivalent of these agencies having printed doorkeys for the front doors to millions or even billions of homes around the world, just in case they one day decided they needed to get in. Frankly, people should have no faith in the security of global mobile communications.” >> CLU’s Christopher Soghoian - "Steal millions of crypto keys and then complain publicly that encryption is a problem. The UK and US govs are shameless."

Kaspersky claims US spies can infect computers with malware that is almost impossible to detect | PandoDaily
NSA has found a way to infect computers targeted for surveillance with malware that is almost impossible to detect and even harder to remove. Kaspersky Lab says in its report that a threat actor known as the Equation Group made this possible by infecting firmware used in hard drives made by the world’s top manufacturers. // &! Reddit - bit.ly/1ATpm6v >> According to Kaspersky, getting the malicious code into a drive’s firmware is not an easy task, and can’t be done with help of public tools, meaning that the NSA had to have access to source codes for hard drives produced by these companies. [meaning they asked for access (and or intercepted orders) when OEM orders came from targeted countries/firms? or spoof hw vendor sites and let them download the manipulated firmware] &! bit.ly/19vzSpI - ie Iran and Russia.

With the help of Pinterest, Twitter, and others, a new Facebook platform wants to keep the web secure | PandoDaily
The service is called ThreatExchange, and companies like Yahoo, Twitter, and Pinterest have all agreed to share threat information with each other via the boringly-named tool. But these companies aren’t the only ones worried that information about digital threats isn’t shared as well as it could be. A new agency, the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center, has been formed to facilitate similar sharing amongst various intelligence agencies. ThreatExchange and CTIIT were both formed out of the belief that digital threats are a puzzle whose pieces are held by various groups. The only way to solve that puzzle, then, is to convince everyone to share their pieces. Otherwise the puzzle will always be incomplete. // what if NSA abuses knowledge this org got (of US companies) to abuse the knowledge via FISA Court injunction not to release it to public knowledge - ie to compromise and or steal intelligence from non-US firms.
