Draft snooper's charter 'fails on spying powers and privacy protections' | World news | The Guardian
Theresa May’s draft “snooper’s charter” bill fails to cover all the intrusive spying powers of the security agencies and lacks clarity in its privacy protections, a parliamentary committee has said. The intelligence and security committee said the draft legislation published by the home secretary suffered from a lack of sufficient time and preparation. It was evident that even those working on the legislation had not always been clear about what it was intended to achieve, it said.

Atomausstieg und Finanzierung: Beschwichtigen und bezichtigen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Gut 38 Milliarden Euro haben E.on , RWE , EnBW und Vattenfall dafür zurückgelegt. Doch die Milliarden liegen nicht auf irgendwelchen Konten, sondern müssen teils von den Kraftwerken der Konzerne noch erwirtschaftet werden. Die aber verkaufen aufgrund des Booms der erneuerbaren Energien immer weniger Strom zu immer schlechteren Preisen. Obendrein drohen die Kosten für den Atomausstieg immer weiter zu steigen, weil die Suche nach einem Endlager für die strahlenden Überreste des Nuklearzeitalters komplizierter und langwieriger ist als geplant. Die Regierung sorgt sich, dass die Rückstellungen nicht reichen und die Steuerzahler am Ende auf Milliardenkosten sitzen bleiben - obwohl die Energieriesen mit den AKW zuvor gewaltige Gewinne gemacht haben.

Working-class Americans feel screwed. I heard it across the entire country | US news | The Guardian
Donald Trump has exposed the opportunity gulf between those who make policy and those who live it – turning immigrants into scapegoats in the process [...] The disappointment, although often wrapped in anger over immigration, is at its core about diminished opportunity. It is consistent with the economic reality that has persisted over the last three decades: except for the very rich, Americans haven’t seen their wealth increase. The people I talked to are not entirely wrong; their particular job prospects and their particular wealth have been harmed. [...] The angry are mostly people who work with their hands, who feel stuck in a vise tightening from two sides: there is a greater number of people looking for the same jobs and there are fewer jobs available, since many of these jobs having moved overseas.

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!?

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.

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."

A court managed what the complicit UK press couldn't: force GCHQ to tell the truth | Trevor Timm | Comment is free | The Guardian
A UK court vindicated Edward Snowden’s whistleblowing on Friday by ruling that the secrecy surrounding one of the programs he exposed was, in fact, illegal. The decision is more evidence that not only were the Snowden revelations necessary and justified, but are also slowly forcing changes in both US and UK, even as both governments fiercely resist. In a stunning ruling, the Investigatory Powers Tribunal (IPT) – which oversees (and usually rubber stamps) Britain’s spy agencies – declared that the intelligence-sharing rules between the NSA and GCHQ (Britain’s NSA equivalent and partner-in-crime) governing their mass surveillance program violated UK human rights laws because they were kept secret for so long. [...] Snowden once rightly called the UK media’s coverage of the GCHQ story “a disservice to the public.”

UK government asks: How's our hacking?
UK gov releases equipment interference guidelines for spy & law enforcement agencies; the guidelines never calls it hacking but 'interference activities; Deputy Director @ Privacy International Eric King (@e3i5) says it's the UK gov's attempt to grant itself some of the most intrusive powers. // "This is the first time that the agencies have admitted that they are in the hacking business," Eric King, the deputy director of London-based digital rights watchdog Privacy International, told Mashable. King said that it amounts to a belated attempt to give these activities a scrap of legal basis, in the face of a lawsuit filed by his group last year, which challenged the legality of the UK intelligence service GCHQ's hacking activities, revealed by Edward Snowden documents. For King, the document is basically an attempt by the UK government to grant itself "some of the most invasive and intrusive" powers it has at its disposal.

My first and last time at the Crunchies — TheLi.st @ Medium — Medium
At the Crunchies, comedian T.J. Miller, a star of the show “Silicon Valley” (which I watch and love), threw out a bunch of playful zingers in his opening act. But then at one point, he engaged with a woman (Gabi Holzwarth) a few rows in front of me by calling her a “bitch”. She responded increduously, “Did you just call me a bitch?” He then said, “Bitch, Asians aren’t supposed to be this entitled in the U.S. … Is this bitch from Palo Alto?” The audience laughed nervously. I was so uncomfortable I wanted to leave, but of course I couldn’t given that our award was coming up. [...] At Crunchies I saw a woman get called a "bitch" onstage, then I did AOL TV & the host mocked me for being pale and made fun of my purse. [...] [ << Show of insecurity by taking the cheap road.

BBC News - GCHQ censured over sharing of internet surveillance data with US
UK surveillance agency GCHQ has been officially censured for not revealing enough about how it shares information with its American counterparts. The Investigatory Powers Tribunal said GCHQ failed until December 2014 to make clear enough details of how it shared data from mass internet surveillance. It was the IPT's first ruling against an intelligence agency in its 15-year history. The Home Office said the government was "committed to transparency". &! https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9008360 &! http://techcrunch.com/2015/02/06/ipt-nsa-gchq-ruling/ &! http://pando.com/2015/02/06/court-says-gchq-nsa-surveillance-programs-violated-human-rights-laws-but-theyre-all-good-now/

[...] Das Ausnutzen von Backdoors, 0-day-exploits oder der Schwächung von Verschlüsselungsstandards soll verboten werden.

Auch gibt es gezielte Programme zur Sammlung von sensiblen Informationen über politische Gegner, wie etwa deren Pornokonsum.

US Spy Programs May Break the Internet if Not Reformed, Google Leader Says | WIRED
Until the US recognizes and restores the fundamental right of ownership you have in your data, he continued, the U.S. cannot hope to rebuild trust lost through the NSA’s widespread surveillance programs. This stance flies in the face of what we expect from internet companies these days, many of whom tend to act as if they own the content we create. [...] COMPANIES HAD NO CHOICE BUT TO TAKE THE STEPS THAT APPLE AND OTHERS WERE TAKING TO STRENGTHEN THE SECURITY OF CUSTOMER DATA, AND THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD GET USED TO IT.
