Another good take on the "Nothing to hide" argument by Bruce Schneier:
For social norms to change, people need to deviate from these inherited norms. People need the space to try alternate ways of living without risking arrest or social ostracization. People need to be able to read critiques of those norms without anyone’s knowledge, discuss them without their opinions being recorded, and write about their experiences without their names attached to their words. People need to be able to do things that others find distasteful, or even immoral. The minority needs protection from the tyranny of the majority.

I work in mobile app development and the technology out there to spy on you is pretty insane. There is a whole industry for snooping and reselling data. Here are some examples.

There are several SDKs (software development kits) that offer fingerprinting identity services. Meaning, when someone opens your app, it checks their device ID, IP address, GPS location, email address, etc. and makes a match to an identity. You then use this SDK to track their behavior in your app, such as purchases, interests, demographics, preferences, etc. This data is stored along with all the other apps that use the SDK. Now as an upsell, I can buy all of your behavior data from every other app that uses the same service. From the moment you install the app I know everything about you.

There are SDKs that don’t even offer a service, they just straight up pay the app maker to let their agent sit and collect data and send it up to their servers. Mostly location data.

My favorite is there’s an SDK that actually records the screen while you use the app, and the video gets sent up to the server for the app maker to see how you use their app in real time. It also tracks all of your views, swipes, and button presses tied to the video for analytics.

Basically, you should assume that every moment you are using an internet connected device, you are being observed, scrutinized, and analyzed so that someone can sell you more shit.

They are really good at this, and getting better every year. You think Facebook is listening to your microphone to serve you ads at the moment you are discussing a product? They don’t need to. They know you that well.

Edit: A lot of people are asking for specific examples of this monitoring tech. There are a ton of small players. So an example of location tracking is Tamoco. An example of behavior tracking is Branch.io (they don't advertise the data mining, but it's a back-end deal). And session monitoring is AppSee or HotJar. There are many more that I haven't heard of.

There are a ton of data resellers out there. They're typically small startups who buy and sell data, and they compete on having the most comprehensive and clean data sets. We get approached by a data reseller maybe once a month, either trying to buy our data or sell us data.

Edit: A lot of people are flippant about this idea because you "don't click on ads" or you "don't buy anything". There are people who aren't interested in just selling you products. How about voting for a particular political candidate, or for/against a ballot measure? How about selling you a particular world view? Propaganda is just like advertising, they're just selling you an idea instead of a product.

Imagine a book asking you to "login to continue" reading it, with the story becoming "tailored" to your "needs" when you do.

Imagine having to wear a mandatory sign with your name and give permission to monitor your "pattern of life" to be able to read a concert poster or look at a graffiti.

Imagine having everyone depend on a service of a closed cast of intermediary messengers who could transcend spacetime to deliver our words, anticipate our needs and suggest who to add to our "connectants."

It’s possible to target ads by phone number. Including a number the user didn’t reveal.
The researchers also found that if User A, whom we’ll call Anna, shares her contacts with Facebook, including a previously unknown phone number for User B, whom we’ll call Ben, advertisers will be able to target Ben with an ad using that phone number, which I call “shadow contact information,” about a month later.

New Tor Browser 8.0 No Longer Reports Every User Using Same OS

Now we no longer look the same.


Until this latest version, the Tor Browser sent headers to every site (in the GET request) that were identical for every Tor Browser user. That helped make every Tor Browser user look exactly like every other Tor Browser user. This is broken in version 8.0. Now, our OS is correctly reported.

Prove it to yourself. Load this page. https://pgl.yoyo.org/http/browser-headers.php These are the headers sent with your GET request for that page.

Here's what mine look like.

Host: pgl.yoyo.org
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0
Accept: text/html,application/xhtml+xml,application/xml;q=0.9,*/*;q=0.8
Accept-Language: en-US,en;q=0.5
Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate, br
Connection: keep-alive
Upgrade-Insecure-Requests: 1

Used to be, every Tor Browser's headers were identical, but I'll bet yours now look different from mine. The part of the useragent in parentheses very probably is different from mine.

Now look in about:config for general.useragent.override. See the value there? Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/60.0. When I put this value into Pale Moon, this is the useragent that is sent to sites. Not so in the new Tor Browser. This, IMNAAHO, is a serious bug.

Others have noticed this too, and they're complaining to Tor. Look in the comments here. https://blog.torproject.org/new-release-tor-browser-80

Why Is Privacy Important?


Privacy Gives Us Dignity and Decency

I feel safe in assuming that all of you reading this (unless you are an inmate in a prison) use the toilet alone. No one watches you. You don’t want anyone to watch you.

But why do you shut the door? Is it because what you’re doing is a secret? Hardly! Is it because what you’re doing is immoral? Certainly not! You shut the door because what you’re doing is private. Forcing prison inmates to use the toilet in front of others is part of their punishment.

We all understand, instinctively, that watching someone shower, watching someone undress, watching someone use the toilet, and reading someone’s private journal is indecent and abusive. We understand, if we’re not mentally ill, that invading someone’s privacy is immoral.

Privacy Gives Us Safety

To be an effective identity thief, you need to know as much about your victim as possible. The less privacy your potential victims have, the more vulnerable they are.

In the United States, political parties are allowed to copy the government’s list of registered voters, which includes full names and addresses. Imagine that you have been physically abused by a former spouse. Would you want to register to vote?

Presently, in America, police are saying they want to be able to “hack into” our electronic devices whenever they have a warrant. However, for this to be possible, our devices have to have a defect that makes this possible. It’s bad enough that our devices often have unintentional defects that make them vulnerable. Who would want a device that is defective by design?

Weakening our security might make life easier for police, but in doing so it also makes life easier for criminals. It’s small comfort to know, after we become victims, that the criminals will be prosecuted. We don’t need more crime prosecution; we need more crime prevention.

We don’t need to trade away privacy for safety because privacy is a necessary precondition for safety. Security and privacy are pretty much the same thing.

Privacy Gives Us a Chance to Change the World for the Better

Every social movement that’s changed the world for the better, from abolishing slavery to defeating Hitler, has needed to plan without being effectively spied upon. If we, either individually or in groups, are to change our world for the better in the future, we’re going to need to be able to organize and plan privately.
This is from a ZeroNet zite I've been working on once in while for a couple of months.

Like it or not, employers have always been able to monitor workers. Company email isn't private, and phone calls often come with a familiar voice saying, "This call may be monitored or recorded for quality assurance."

Juggalos figured out how to beat facial recognition

Welcome to a world where Juggalo makeup is your best shot at avoiding involuntary surveillance.
https://theoutline.com/post/5172/juggalo-juggalette-facepaint-makeup-hack-beat-facial-recognition-technology

My immediate question was of course how to Black Metal corpsepaint fare against the surveillance tools? But they answered that too:
Face-painting styles like “corpse” makeup also obscure the face. However, they don’t create enough contrast to effectively confuse most facial recognition systems

A quite well-done talk on privacy and mass-profiling of people:


There's one especially interesting point (apart from may other valuable ideas in the talk):
It's not just about our personal dramas - whether we will get decent credit rate, a visa to US, or our dream job. It's more and more about shaping the society we live in.
Profiling ignores any exceptionality. It dwells and feeds itself on stereotypes, and therefore it makes these stereotypes stronger and more persistent. <...> If a young female is exploring Internet, she's much more likely to get an advertisement for a lipstick than a science magazine.

# Phill from GCHQ - page 46 #


Drawing - 966 × 1350 px - 411 kb PNG - Page 46 of Phill from GCHQ. A bit of a celebration: The last page in what is to become a real album. @gargamello you can read a whole album now (it is continued though). The whole thing has developed into a nerdy version of Peter Paper - hadn't given that a thought until now.
Made with Krita



The comic can be read also in French, German and Danish.

Spyware’s Odd Targets: Backers of #Mexico’s Soda Tax



source: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/11/technology/hack-mexico-soda-tax-advocates.html
The discovery of NSO’s #spyware on the phones of Mexican nutrition policy makers, activists and even #government employees, like Dr. Barquera, raises new questions about whether NSO’s tools are being used to advance the soda industry’s commercial interests in Mexico.
