Ubuntu Spyware: What to Do?



by Richard Stallman

_(The picture was taken from the collection of official Ubuntu's wallpapers)_

https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/ubuntu-spyware.html
Since Ubuntu version 16.04, the spyware search facility is now disabled by default. It appears that the campaign of pressure launched by this article has been partly successful. Nonetheless, offering the spyware search facility as an option is still a problem, as explained below. Ubuntu should make the network search a command users can execute from time to time, not a semipermanent option for users to enable (and probably forget).

Even though the factual situation described in the rest of this page has partly changed, the page is still important. This example should teach our community not to do such things again, but in order for that to happen, we must continue to talk about it.

One of the major advantages of free software is that the community protects users from malicious software. Now Ubuntu GNU/Linux has become a counterexample. What should we do?

Proprietary software is associated with malicious treatment of the user: surveillance code, digital handcuffs (DRM or Digital Restrictions Management) to restrict users, and back doors that can do nasty things under remote control. Programs that do any of these things are malware and should be treated as such. Widely used examples include Windows, the iThings, and the Amazon “Kindle” product for virtual book burning, which do all three; Macintosh and the Playstation III which impose DRM; most portable phones, which do spying and have back doors; Adobe Flash Player, which does spying and enforces DRM; and plenty of apps for iThings and Android, which are guilty of one or more of these nasty practices.

Free software gives users a chance to protect themselves from malicious software behaviors. Even better, usually the community protects everyone, and most users don't have to move a muscle. Here's how.

Once in a while, users who know programming find that a free program has malicious code. Generally the next thing they do is release a corrected version of the program; with the four freedoms that define free software (see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/free-sw.html), they are free to do this. This is called a “fork” of the program. Soon the community switches to the corrected fork, and the malicious version is rejected. The prospect of ignominious rejection is not very tempting; thus, most of the time, even those who are not stopped by their consciences and social pressure refrain from putting malfeatures in free software.

But not always. Ubuntu, a widely used and influential GNU/Linux distribution, has installed surveillance code. When the user searches her own local files for a string using the Ubuntu desktop, Ubuntu sends that string to one of Canonical's servers. (Canonical is the company that develops Ubuntu.)

This is just like the first surveillance practice I learned about in Windows. My late friend Fravia told me that when he searched for a string in the files of his Windows system, it sent a packet to some server, which was detected by his firewall. Given that first example I paid attention and learned about the propensity of “reputable” proprietary software to be malware. Perhaps it is no coincidence that Ubuntu sends the same information.

Ubuntu uses the information about searches to show the user ads to buy various things from Amazon. Amazon commits many wrongs; by promoting Amazon, Canonical contributes to them. However, the ads are not the core of the problem. The main issue is the spying. Canonical says it does not tell Amazon who searched for what. However, it is just as bad for Canonical to collect your personal information as it would have been for Amazon to collect it. Ubuntu surveillance is not anonymous.

People will certainly make a modified version of Ubuntu without this surveillance. In fact, several GNU/Linux distros are modified versions of Ubuntu. When those update to the latest Ubuntu as a base, I expect they will remove this. Canonical surely expects that too.

Most free software developers would abandon such a plan given the prospect of a mass switch to someone else's corrected version. But Canonical has not abandoned the Ubuntu spyware. Perhaps Canonical figures that the name “Ubuntu” has so much momentum and influence that it can avoid the usual consequences and get away with surveillance.

Canonical says this feature searches the Internet in other ways. Depending on the details, that might or might not make the problem bigger, but not smaller.

Ubuntu allows users to switch the surveillance off. Clearly Canonical thinks that many Ubuntu users will leave this setting in the default state (on). And many may do so, because it doesn't occur to them to try to do anything about it. Thus, the existence of that switch does not make the surveillance feature ok.

Even if it were disabled by default, the feature would still be dangerous: “opt in, once and for all” for a risky practice, where the risk varies depending on details, invites carelessness. To protect users' privacy, systems should make prudence easy: when a local search program has a network search feature, it should be up to the user to choose network search explicitly each time. This is easy: all it takes is to have separate buttons for network searches and local searches, as earlier versions of Ubuntu did. A network search feature should also inform the user clearly and concretely about who will get what personal information of hers, if and when she uses the feature.

If a sufficient part of our community's opinion leaders view this issue in personal terms only, if they switch the surveillance off for themselves and continue to promote Ubuntu, Canonical might get away with it. That would be a great loss to the free software community.

We who present free software as a defense against malware do not say it is a perfect defense. No perfect defense is known. We don't say the community will deter malware without fail. Thus, strictly speaking, the Ubuntu spyware example doesn't mean we have to eat our words.

But there's more at stake here than whether some of us have to eat some words. What's at stake is whether our community can effectively use the argument based on proprietary spyware. If we can only say, “free software won't spy on you, unless it's Ubuntu,” that's much less powerful than saying, “free software won't spy on you.”

It behooves us to give Canonical whatever rebuff is needed to make it stop this. Any excuse Canonical offers is inadequate; even if it used all the money it gets from Amazon to develop free software, that can hardly overcome what free software will lose if it ceases to offer an effective way to avoid abuse of the users.

If you ever recommend or redistribute GNU/Linux, please remove Ubuntu from the distros you recommend or redistribute. If its practice of installing and recommending nonfree software didn't convince you to stop, let this convince you. In your install fests, in your Software Freedom Day events, in your FLISOL events, don't install or recommend Ubuntu. Instead, tell people that Ubuntu is shunned for spying.

While you're at it, you can also tell them that Ubuntu contains nonfree programs and suggests other nonfree programs. (See http://www.gnu.org/distros/common-distros.html.) That will counteract the other form of negative influence that Ubuntu exerts in the free software community: legitimizing nonfree software.

The presence of nonfree software in Ubuntu is a separate ethical issue. For Ubuntu to be ethical, that too must be fixed.

OffGrid Solar Powered Workstation (Open Source Hardware)

This article is about finding out: What low-power PC with decent performance is best suitable for solar-powered (12v would be nice) Off-Grid-computing while respecting your privacy in an FSF-kind?



i have to admit… i am still in the progress… no finished dito-results, sorry.

But very interesting boards were found, Open Source Hardware is kickstarting!!!

Recommendations:



„Given the current situation, there is no ideal device available that would satisfy all the requirements to fully respect users‘ freedom: hardware freedom is missing and most firmwares, modem operating systems and bootroms are non-free. However, it is possible to choose a device that runs with free bootloaders and a free mobile operating system: Replicant, as well as free applications.

Privacy/security cannot be reliably achieved, but it is possible to get close to it by choosing a device that is not proven to have bad modem isolation, provides a reliable way of deactivating the modem or doesn’t feature any modem at all, in addition to running software that is as free as possible and following some general good advice.“

Can the Raspberry be a „full PC with EXTEME Powersavings“?



maybe yes. but it needs a large binary GPU blop to boot – not OpenSource, not transparent possibly endangering your privacy.




I hope so… i would like to operate it with solar-panels and a 12V Battery! Off-Grid computing! That is why this matters!

Why Richard Stallman would never buy: „The Raspberry Pi boots from its GPU and only non-free software is currently available for the GPU, even starting the machine requires a large (2MB) blob of non-free, unsupportable software“

„Generally, your best bet is to use Raspbian – which is (mostly) Debian armhf rebuilt by members of Debian for the RPi’s ARMv6+VFP2 ARM variant. Raspbian releases usually follow the corresponding Debian release but do deviate in a handful of cases for various reasons.

Be aware that the Raspbian images distributed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation contain additional packages supplied by them including updated versions of some software and the addition of non-free software including Oracle Java and Wolfram Mathematica.“

https://perens.com/blog/2016/04/07/installing-the-native-debian-armhf-architecture-on-raspberry-pi-3-instead-of-raspbian/

The Power – where from?



„The built-in Wireless LAN and Bluetooth and the more powerful processor mean that the Raspberry Pi 3 draws about twice the current of its predecessor when under heavy CPU load (750mA vs 360mA).

Official Powersupply: 5v \* 2A = 10Watts „it’ll keep feeding your Pi the steady 2A it needs for proper performance.“

Unfortunately – it seems like – the Raspberry Pi can not be powered by simply plugin it’s power to a PC’s USB-Port.

„The Raspberry Pi can function on lower current power supplies e.g. 5V @ 1A. However, any excessive use of the USB ports or even heavy CPU/GPU loading can cause the voltage to drop, and instability during use. The latest versions of the Raspberry Pi B+/A+/2 have a “low voltage indicator icon” to notify the user if there is a problem with the power.



If you apply power to the USB port when you Pi is off, it will not boot. However, if you apply power to your Pi via one of the standard methods (e.g. the micro USB port), then apply power to USB ports and remove the original supply, it will stay on and functional.

It should be noted that USB ports have a current limit of 500mA, so we would not recommend you attempt to supply more than this via the USB!“

https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/raspberry-pi-3-specs-benchmarks/

„Updated following the release of the model B+, A+, Pi 2 Model B, and Pi Zero. According to measurements by Alex Eames [1][2][3][4]“

``` B with keyboard = 1.89 W -> daily 45 Wh
B+ with keyboard = 1.21 W -> daily 29 Wh
B+ with LAN/USB chip off (no i/o except GPIO) = 0.76 W -> daily 18.2 Wh
B+ shut down = 0.26 W -> daily 6.2 Wh
A idle = 0.7 W -> daily 17 Wh
A+ idle = 0.52 W -> daily 12.5 Wh
Pi2 B at idle = 1.15 W -> daily 28 Wh
Pi Zero at idle = 0.51 W -> daily 12.2 Wh

```„The Zero, A+ and B+ really offer huge improvements in the power circuitry. Wow!“

Yeah u guys gonna hate me:

What i really like about JavaScript: It is ALWAYS OpenSource 🙂



and you can produce nice web-based (hardware independent) graphical outputs right on the screen…

but JavaScript is TOO SLOW!



We need more a C-kind of thing, lightweight, client-browser-sandboxed and secure scripting capabilities.

really!

some people like to load a lot of JavaScript on their sites. Combine that with massive not-downscaled pictures of 8MByte and you get a website that crashes every modern IPhone.

so it is really no wonder that a 64Bit-QuadCore, 1GByte embedded System like the Raspberry Pi has it’s problems with: JavaScript

„One of my biggest gripes was how slowly JavaScript-heavy websites loaded, when using both the Epiphany and Iceweasel web browsers. Given JS is so common in modern web sites and services this proved to be problematic.“

src: http://www.techrepublic.com/article/five-tips-for-getting-the-most-out-of-a-raspberry-pi-3-as-a-pc/

So you definitely want to use some light-weight linux like TinyCore Linux (12MByte) and https://noscript.net/

Youtube works! Firefox works! Opera works! 🙂





https://noscript.net/

Next thing: What about Startup of Applications?



„LibreOffice works extremely well taking only 9 seconds to boot with the Raspberry Pi 2.“

Raspi Pros and Cons from an Open Source FSF perspective:



Pros:
  • Large and active community
  • Low price for the capabilities offered
Cons:
  • The Raspberry Pi 1’s processor falls uncomfortably between the processor families that Debian has chosen to target. While Raspbian solves this to some degree an unofficial port will always give less certainty than an official one. (This doesn‘ stand anymore for the Raspberry Pi 2)
  • 3D acceleration is not integrated with X or other standard mechanisms and the Raspberry Pi Foundation don’t seem to show any interest in doing so. Therefore 3D applications will require Pi specific builds.
  • A binary blob used by the GPU must be present on the SD card for the system to boot.
  • While some hardware documentation has been released the documentation is sorely lacking.
  • While schematics are available the board design is closed and the main processor is not available for purchase by the general public.

EOMA68 – crowd funded OpenHardware project:



„The project is being developed by Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton of Rhombus-Tech and is sponsored by Christopher Waid of ThinkPenguin, a company that sells multiple RYF-certified hardware products. It is exciting to see passionate free software advocates in our community working with OEMs to produce a computer hardware product capable of achieving RYF certification. We hope that this is the first of many computing systems they are able to design and build that respect your freedom.

The Libre Tea Computer Card is built with an Allwinner A20 dual core processor configured to use the main CPU for graphics; it has 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of NAND Flash; and it will come pre-installed with Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, an FSF-endorsed fully-free operating system.“NEWS and PROGRESS

Be aware that the Raspbian images distributed by the Raspberry Pi Foundation contain additional packages supplied by them including updated versions of some software and the addition of non-free software including Oracle Java and Wolfram Mathematica.“

The Power – where from?



„The built-in Wireless LAN and Bluetooth and the more powerful processor mean that the Raspberry Pi 3 draws about twice the current of its predecessor when under heavy CPU load (750mA vs 360mA).

Official Powersupply: 5v \* 2A = 10Watts „it’ll keep feeding your Pi the steady 2A it needs for proper performance.“

Unfortunately – it seems like – the Raspberry Pi can not be powered by simply plugin it’s power to a PC’s USB-Port.

„The Raspberry Pi can function on lower current power supplies e.g. 5V @ 1A. However, any excessive use of the USB ports or even heavy CPU/GPU loading can cause the voltage to drop, and instability during use. The latest versions of the Raspberry Pi B+/A+/2 have a “low voltage indicator icon” to notify the user if there is a problem with the power.



If you apply power to the USB port when you Pi is off, it will not boot. However, if you apply power to your Pi via one of the standard methods (e.g. the micro USB port), then apply power to USB ports and remove the original supply, it will stay on and functional.

It should be noted that USB ports have a current limit of 500mA, so we would not recommend you attempt to supply more than this via the USB!“

„Updated following the release of the model B+, A+, Pi 2 Model B, and Pi Zero. According to measurements by Alex Eames [1][2][3][4]“

``` B with keyboard = 1.89 W -> daily 45 Wh
B+ with keyboard = 1.21 W -> daily 29 Wh
B+ with LAN/USB chip off (no i/o except GPIO) = 0.76 W -> daily 18.2 Wh
B+ shut down = 0.26 W -> daily 6.2 Wh
A idle = 0.7 W -> daily 17 Wh
A+ idle = 0.52 W -> daily 12.5 Wh
Pi2 B at idle = 1.15 W -> daily 28 Wh
Pi Zero at idle = 0.51 W -> daily 12.2 Wh

```„The Zero, A+ and B+ really offer huge improvements in the power circuitry. Wow!“

Yeah u guys gonna hate me:

What i really like about JavaScript: It is ALWAYS OpenSource 🙂



and you can produce nice web-based (hardware independent) graphical outputs right on the screen…

but JavaScript is TOO SLOW!



We need more a C-kind of thing, lightweight, client-browser-sandboxed and secure scripting capabilities.

really!

some people like to load a lot of JavaScript on their sites. Combine that with massive not-downscaled pictures of 8MByte and you get a website that crashes every modern IPhone.

so it is really no wonder that a 64Bit-QuadCore, 1GByte embedded System like the Raspberry Pi has it’s problems with: JavaScript

„One of my biggest gripes was how slowly JavaScript-heavy websites loaded, when using both the Epiphany and Iceweasel web browsers. Given JS is so common in modern web sites and services this proved to be problematic.“

src: http://www.techrepublic.com/article/five-tips-for-getting-the-most-out-of-a-raspberry-pi-3-as-a-pc/

So you definitely want to use some light-weight linux like TinyCore Linux (12MByte) and https://noscript.net/

Youtube works! Firefox works! Opera works! 🙂





https://noscript.net/

Next thing: What about Startup of Applications?



„LibreOffice works extremely well taking only 9 seconds to boot with the Raspberry Pi 2.“

Raspi Pros and Cons from an Open Source FSF perspective:



Pros:
  • Large and active community
  • Low price for the capabilities offered
Cons:
  • The Raspberry Pi 1’s processor falls uncomfortably between the processor families that Debian has chosen to target. While Raspbian solves this to some degree an unofficial port will always give less certainty than an official one. (This doesn‘ stand anymore for the Raspberry Pi 2)
  • 3D acceleration is not integrated with X or other standard mechanisms and the Raspberry Pi Foundation don’t seem to show any interest in doing so. Therefore 3D applications will require Pi specific builds.
  • A binary blob used by the GPU must be present on the SD card for the system to boot.
  • While some hardware documentation has been released the documentation is sorely lacking.
  • While schematics are available the board design is closed and the main processor is not available for purchase by the general public.

EOMA68 – crowd funded OpenHardware project:



„The project is being developed by Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton of Rhombus-Tech and is sponsored by Christopher Waid of ThinkPenguin, a company that sells multiple RYF-certified hardware products. It is exciting to see passionate free software advocates in our community working with OEMs to produce a computer hardware product capable of achieving RYF certification. We hope that this is the first of many computing systems they are able to design and build that respect your freedom.

The Libre Tea Computer Card is built with an Allwinner A20 dual core processor configured to use the main CPU for graphics; it has 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of NAND Flash; and it will come pre-installed with Parabola GNU/Linux-libre, an FSF-endorsed fully-free operating system.“NEWS and PROGRESS

Un personaje peculiar este Richard Stallman desde mi punto de vista, un showman extravagante (por cierto, con bastante personalidad), que ofrece un discurso serio en su acento particular en ‘spanglish’, que no esconde sus ideas llenas de principios que para muchos son difíciles de entender y más complicados de aplicar en la sociedad actual y un carisma innato que reparte a partes iguales detractores y seguidores. Yo personalmente me encuentro entre éstos últimos.

What is the GNU Hurd?

The Hurd is a set of servers running on top of the GNU Mach microkernel. Together they build the base for the GNU operating system.

Currently, Debian is only available for Linux and kFreeBSD, but with Debian GNU/Hurd we have started to offer GNU/Hurd as a development, server and desktop platform, too. (...)

Arch Hurdhttps://www.archhurd.org/


This is the Hurd. Welcome.

Welcome to the Arch Hurd website. Arch Hurd is a derivative work of Arch Linux porting it to the GNU Hurd system with packages optimised for the i686 architecture.

Our goal is to provide an Arch-like user environment (BSD-style init scripts, i686-optimised packages, use of the pacman package manager, rolling-release, and a KISS set up) on the Hurd which is stable enough for use, if not as a primary OS, at least as something to consider as a dual-boot option.

Currently we provide a LiveCD for users to install or try Arch Hurd for themselves, and provide an installation guide covering its use, as well as an alternate installation guide for users for whom the LiveCD is not an option, for whatever reason.

We are attempting to bring the spirit of Arch Linux to the Hurd, and if you'd like to help us achieve that, we'd love to hear from you on the mailing lists or IRC. (...)
