Student Lets #Thief Steal His #Phone, Spies On Him For Weeks To Make This #Documentary



Film student Anthony van der Meer had his #iPhone stolen and the thought that a stranger had access to all of his #personal #data really concerned him. What kind of person would steal a phone? Where do these phones end up? These were his biggest questions. To get answers, Anthony had another phone stolen from him on purpose, but this time he followed the thief using a hidden app and made a captivating documentary film about the whole process. http://www.boredpanda.com/find-my-phone-thief-stolen-smartphone-spying-cerberus-anthony-van-der-meer/ #surveillance #tracking #gps #mobile #mobileshttp://www.boredpanda.com/find-my-phone-thief-stolen-smartphone-spying-cerberus-anthony-van-der-meer/

Ultrasound Tracking Could Be Used to Deanonymize Tor Users

Ultrasounds emitted by ads or JavaScript code hidden on a page accessed through the Tor Browser can deanonymize Tor users by making nearby phones or computers send identity beacons back to advertisers, data which contains sensitive information that state-sponsored actors can easily obtain via a subpoena.

These patterned glasses are all it takes to fool AI-powered facial recognition



Researchers have come up with a cheap and effective way to attack facial-recognition algorithms.




Researchers have developed patterned eyeglass frames that can trick facial-recognition algorithms into seeing someone else's face.

The printed frames allowed three researchers from Carnegie Mellon to successfully dodge a facial-recognition system based on machine-learning 80 percent of the time.

I'm trying to reduce my cell phone usage gradatively every day. Call it a data diet if you may; I envy in a good way those who manage to live a 21st century life without a phone, perhaps I'll reach that level one day. I'm planning to take these extra steps these coming weeks to force myself to reduce phone usage when moving around the city:
  • If I'm going anywhere closer than a car ride away from home or office, I won't take my phone with me.
  • If I'm going to be away from home or office for less than 3 hours, I won't take my phone with me.
  • If the place I'm going has a reliable Wi-Fi hotspot, I won't take my phone with me, regarless of time or distance (I'll take my laptop instead).
Notes: I mention "office" because, like my house, it's one of the places where I'm well-known to hang around often. It's no secret to anyone, so there's little gain in obfuscating it. Also, no. 3 is especially useful during a trip far away since there my phone becomes less useful than a laptop because it cannot make calls anymore.

I don't know if it'll make much of a difference in the long run, but right now, any measure that helps make me used to using my phone less times a day is welcome. Who knows, perhaps next step is to cancel my carrier subscription.

Keystroke Biometrics verwendet das Schreibverhalten der Nutzer auf der Tastatur als Identifizierungsmerkmal. Der HTML5 Standard definiert eine API, um auf Tastatur­ereignisse reagieren zu können. In Firefox 38.0 wurden erste Teile der API standard­mäßig aktiviert. In Kombination mit hochgenauen Timern können Webapplikationen das Schreibverhalten der Surfer in Webformularen analysieren und als biometrischen Login verwenden (z.B. von der Firma KeyTrac angeboten) oder als Tracking­feature.

Mit Windows 10 hat Microsoft begonnen, das Schreibverhalten der Anwender im Hinter­grund durch das Betriebssystem analysieren zu lassen und die erstellten biometrischen Profile an die Firma BehavioSec zu senden, die mit der DARPA und Microsoft kooperiert. Laut Eigenwerbung kann BehavioSec 99% der Nutzer korrekt erkennen. Die dabei entstehenden umfangreiche Sammlung der biometrischen Profile kann zukünftig zum Tracking und zur Deanonymisierung genutzt werden.

Als Verteidigung gegen das Tracking durch Webapplikationen mit Keystroke Biometrics kann man eine Texteditor für das Schreiben verwenden und den fertigen Text via Copy&Paste in das Webformular übernehmen oder Javascript deaktivieren (falls möglich). In Firefox kann man die Keyboard Events deaktivieren.

Britain has passed the 'most extreme surveillance law ever passed in a democracy'



The law forces UK internet providers to store browsing histories -- including domains visited -- for one year, in case of police investigations.

I think we should have something like this for our politicians as well...

Seminar on digital tracking and privacy

The norwegian consumer council is hosting a full day seminar on digital privacy, tracking and surveillance issues this coming monday. It seems the seminar will be in english, and it will be streamed live on their website.

The programme looks really interesting, and there's quite a few interesting speakers, both Norwegian and from the international community. Check their post about the seminar for the details!

Facebook education software spurs privacy fears
Summit Basecamp, built with the help of Facebook engineers, was billed as a powerful tool that could reshape how students learn. Dozens of schools nationwide have signed up to use the program, which tailors lessons to individual students using software that tracks their progress.

But it also captures a stream of data, and Bilicki had to sign a consent form for her children to participate, allowing their personal data to be shared with companies such as Facebook and Google. That data, the form said, could include names, email addresses, schoolwork, grades and Internet activity.
