Facebook is CREEPY


https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/06/21/opinion/sunday/facebook-patents-privacy.html

"Facebook has filed thousands of patent applications since 2012. One of them describes using forward-facing cameras to analyze your facial expressions and detect whether you’re bored or surprised by what you see on your feed.

A patent application explores using your phone microphone to identify the television shows you watched and whether ads were muted. It also proposes using the electrical interference pattern created by your television power cable to guess which show is playing.

Another patent application discusses tracking your weekly routine and sending notifications to other users of deviations from the routine. In addition, it describes using your phone’s location in the middle of the night to establish where you live.

An other patent proposes correlating the location of your phone to locations of your friends’ phones to deduce whom you socialize with most often. It also proposes monitoring when your phone is stationary to track how many hours you sleep.

One patent application discusses predicting whether you’re in a romantic relationship using information such as how many times you visit another user’s page, the number of people in your profile picture and the percentage of your friends of a different gender.

Another proposes using your posts and messages to infer personality traits. It describes judging your degree of extroversion, openness or emotional stability, then using those characteristics to select which news stories or ads to display.

This patent application describes using your posts and messages, in addition to your credit card transactions and location, to predict when a major life event, such as a birth, death or graduation, is likely to occur.

Another considers analyzing pictures to create a unique camera “signature” using faulty pixels or lens scratches. That signature could be used to figure out that you know someone who uploads pictures taken on your device, even if you weren’t previously connected. Or it might be used to guess the “affinity” between you and a friend based on how frequently you use the same camera."

At first this seems like good news for privacy:
New data about the South Wales Police's use of the technology obtained by Wired UK and The Guardian through a public records request shows that of the 2,470 alerts from the facial recognition system, 2,297 were false positives. In other words, nine out of 10 times, the system erroneously flagged someone as being suspicious or worthy of arrest.
However, to realize that instead of chasing real criminal suspects they waste their time on thousands of fake alerts flagging innocent people is even more grotesque Orwellian than the original 1984.

I was once at the train station in one of the bigger cities in Ukraine... And saw a Tor logo on one of the big LCD screens next to the arrival schedule. A quite unexpected encounter:)

It's a social ad by the NGO behind https://netfreedom.org.ua/

This one is focused on the people traveling to the conflict zone and is advising them about digital security.

Purism collects half the money for Librem 5!



Purism does better than I hoped! After a little bit more than half of the time (33 days passed, 27 still to go), they have half the money (51%) of the 1.5 million USD they need. I'm positively surprised!

Now the other half it is up to you! If you like to have a phone that respects your privacy (so does promise Purism), runs a mainstream Linux distro (PureOS/Debian by default, the most important point for me personally), and has strong focus on freedom and security, please consider supporting their crowd funding campaign!

As long as they do not reach their goal there is no risk. Your credit card will not be charged before they reach their target. If the reach the 1.5 million USD, they will charge you. Then there is the risk, that they will fail, of course. I think, that they will not fail, because they have some experience with building hardware and they have capable people on board. But, hey, no risk, no fun!

How used cars became a security nightmare



"Application security for connected cars is far less mature than anyone should be comfortable with. This was clear at the RSA information security conference last week in San Francisco, where two presentations demonstrated different ways cars can be remotely controlled or even stolen by non-owners. All because the people designing connected car apps literally didn't think things through and consider the possibility of second owners -- or hackers."

Riseup confirms it received two FBI warrants and gagging order


Riseup users had warned on social media that the group's "warrant canary" - a statement confirming that an organisation has not been issued with a court order to compromise users' details - had not been updated for the Winter 2016 quarter, a sign that the group may have been served with a gagging order preventing it from notifying its users of a warrant.

Why we don't publish at the Play Store



We got some requests recently, asking, why we do not publish #dandelion at the #GooglePlay.So here are our main reasons, why we don't plan to uploadthe app there currently.

First of all, we do not comply with Googles terms of service. Having to pay ~25€ to Google who did not write the app and does not respect your freedom nor your privacy on its platforms (Youtube, GMail...) just doesn't feel right. We believe, that our userbase is well aware of the privacy concerns that come with using Google's Services, so many diaspora* users actually get their apps through F-Droid (which is great). Second, if a user that does not know about F-Droid yet wants to use dandelion* and searches for it, they'll hopefully find out about the F-Droid project and may get in touch with free software that way. So by not publishing to Google Play, we hope to get more people to understand, use and appreciate free and open source software.

If you find dandelion* on the Play Store, please be aware, that you likely just found a version built by someone else. We can not guarantee that such a version has not been tampered with in terms of #malware, so we highly discourage you to use it. It should be clear, that we'll never charge you any money for using, downloading, sharing or modifying the app. Note also, that we won't support those versions.

If you want to dontate to the project to support the developers, and keep them motivated, please feel free to contact us :D As always, you can help us by submitting bug reports, code and/or translations on github and crowdin.
PS: We maintainers (@gsantner and @vanitasvitae) will soon have more time again to actively work on the app. The last weeks we were distracted with educational work, so here is some background information:

@gsantner was working on another FLOSS app called Froody, which lets you share (naturally growing) food and other things with others. He hopes to enable people to live a more sustainable life. The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused.Everything is built with international use in mind. The app is available at https://github.com/froodyapp/froody-android, and is currently available in #English, #German and #Japanese. Also translatable on Crowdin. He also writes his bachlor thesis about Open Source and Android, which will be completed in summer and likely to be released in an appropiate free license.

@vanitasvitae is writing his bachelor thesis about an #OMEMO module for #Smack, a #XMPP library used by many free messengers like #Jitsi or #Kontalk.
He hopes to enable those messengers to #encrypt your communication end-to-end using the OMEMO protocol introduced by #conversations.
He'll also attend #FOSDEM in #brussels by the way, so if you are there you might meet him and chat a little ;)

Sharing welcome!

Installing Signal on a Google free phone



I tried to install Singal on my Google free Android phone one year ago and I was shocked when I found out that I had to install Google Play services to use Signal and there was not much info out there how to do it without it.
So now I gave it another try and after almost a whole day I finally did it.
Here is what I did:
I have rooted CyanogenMod 13 on my phone, no Google apps.
- Go to https://microg.org/ (A free-as-in-freedom re-implementation of Google’s proprietary Android user space apps and libraries.)
- Download and install GmsCore.apk, GsfProxy.apk, FakeStore.apk in this order
- Open the microG Settings and tick both checkboxes for background services
- Reboot your device
- Disable Battery Optimization for microG Services Core in System Settings > Battery > Menu > Battery optimization.
- Go to https://www.apkmirror.com and get an old version of Signal - e.g. v3.20 (you won't be able to sign up with the newest version)
- Install Signal and sign up.
- Now if everything works just download the newest version of Signal and install it.

I hope this helps others.

#privacy vs #security #insecurity #police #police-state #panopticon

This is a very, very good documentary on what is been going on for over a decade now. If you are interested in the topic of privacy I highly recommend this one. It's a pre-Snowden doc, which makes it even more surprising and to the point.



http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2486744/

Isn't it ironic I give you the link for it and it directs you to youtube? It certainly is but I have not managed to find an alternative. No torrent out there for this one :/
Oh well, use youtube-dl or mpv..

Isn't it ironic I give you the link for it and it directs you to youtube? It certainly is but I have not managed to find an alternative. No torrent out there for this one :/
Oh well, use youtube-dl or mpv..
