"Fixing" your internet privacy


Recommended Posts

You have to think though if everybody adopts this sort of privacy searching, it will certainly make spying on people over the internet a lot harder.

 

Generally I hate the idea that someone is always monitoring me, I means I can never relax when using technology.

 

anyway I though it was a useful piece of info to post :P

Indeed this is just ridicules. The police is not harassing you every minute on the street either. Why would they even be doing this online ?? If you have done nothing wrong there is not even a reason to keep tabs on such a person. Well if they would enter my home physically i would kick the shit out of them and throw them out of my house.

Well that seems pointless......

 

If the NSA are going to spy on you there isn't going to be a hell of a lot you can do about it.

 

If someone wants it badly enough, they'll be able to get your Credit Card info (or just about anything else.)

So why not just tell everyone?  It's not like you can do anything about it, LOL!

"We are seeing more and more intrusive behavior by our governments, they seem to think everything we do and say is their business.

 

We are being treated like slaves, and most people don't even realize this.

 

Not labour slaves being used to build monuments, or any other kind (the obvoius being sex slaves).

 

Do your research and you will find they are using our actual existance as a commodity, our Economy is based on the value of supposed achievements we make during our oh-so short lifetimes.

 

So we come to the point, resist, resist even at the cost of your life, even at your familys life's. these people seem intent on making you do what they say.

 

So should we?      In my opinion NO!

 

People have to realize our governments are nothing without us, they govern with our approval.

 

They propagandize "the one can't make a difference"... But they lie, they're scared. 

 

I see tech being produced that is beyond even what most of us can imagine, Biohacking, robotics, cybernetic augmentation, these are but a few of the new technologies i've discovered in the last few months... scary eh, only if we let it be."

 

This is a speech my brother made at his university graduation... he died 2 months later in a car crash, I though it felt appropriate.

 

I hope it shows my purpose, this is my purpose...

 

 

P.S. I am Incredibly drunk, don't take anything I say here as my sober opinion, I am just venting :b

A) PRISM is getting info from ISP's right at the source, backdoor access to the ISP, given by the top broadband providers in the states

 

B) Even if you loop into a proxy, your ISP is still getting your data sent because all packets are bounced to it, then onward to the next point, so unless somehow you're magically bypassing your ISP and going directly to the proxy, your shit's already PRISM's.  

 

C) Even if you use an encryption program directly from your PC, what makes you think the NSA hasn't already broken the encryption?

What makes you think all crypto experts on Earth work for NSA? Spooks have unlimited money (taken out of your pocket by the way) and exceptional specialists but it won't help them much in this case. Info about broken crypto algorithms will leak anyway. Besides, if people really want to protect their privacy, they will do so.

 

 

Shortly after its release, PGP encryption found its way outside the United States, and in February 1993 Zimmermann became the formal target of a criminal investigation by the US Government for "munitions export without a license". Cryptosystems using keys larger than 40 bits were then considered munitions within the definition of the US export regulations; PGP has never used keys smaller than 128 bits so it qualified at that time. Penalties for violation, if found guilty, were substantial. After several years, the investigation of Zimmermann was closed without filing criminal charges against him or anyone else.

 

Zimmermann challenged these regulations in an imaginative way. He published the entire source code of PGP in a hardback book via MIT Press, which was distributed and sold widely. Anybody wishing to build their own copy of PGP could buy the $60 book, cut off the covers, separate the pages, and scan them using an OCR program, creating a set of source code text files. One could then build the application using the freely available GNU Compiler Collection. PGP would thus be available anywhere in the world. The claimed principle was simple: export of munitions—guns, bombs, planes, and software—was (and remains) restricted; but the export of books is protected by the First Amendment. The question was never tested in court with respect to PGP. In cases addressing other encryption software, however, two federal appeals courts have established the rule that cryptographic software source code is speech protected by the First Amendment (the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the Bernstein case and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in the Junger case).

Looks like Osama Obama is freaking out.. many companies where planning on suing him and his agency now he wants to limit there prism access again. Way to go for Snowden. Snowden = 1 Obama = -1 :D

If ISP are giving NSA backdoor access they violating there own EULA. They should have prevented this backdoor access at all cost. Security measures should be applied at all costs. Don't forget there are also companies using ISP if ISP are leaking there info then there would be major law suit on there hands.

 

If i had a company who was working on new technology this would have been called a major security breach.

 

Right now they give NSA access so who else could get this access too ?? What if other hackers also make use of this backdoor breach ??

 

That is also why i don't trust those new patches from Microsoft anymore. who knows how many backdoors they created and just using the term patch, A program that require so many patches is not really a program anymore but more like open wall of shit.

 

 

 

C) Even if you use an encryption program directly from your PC, what makes you think the NSA hasn't already broken the encryption? 

 

If they did they sure failed to stop what happened in Boston. Even the FBI mentioned that they where not able to prevent that from happening and from what i heard PRISM was made up just for these types of occasion.

Better Obama than Romney or Bush.  I'd rather have Obama spy on foreign nationals than Romney starting WW3.

What I find interesting is how naive and uninformed most people are on this forum when it comes to American politics and policies.

What is happening now is a repeat of history.

  Whenever a country becomes leaderless, it resorts to this internal struggle to maintain control of its population.

The NSA, and various levels of homeland security waste their time pulling old couples(60+) over at the border and denying them entry to their country.

Besides humiliating someone, what have they accomplished?  I searched the records and could not find a single news report when a 60 year old man committed a terrorist act on American soil. This but a small example of why the can not stop a Boston event from happening.

 

  WW3 is not on the horizon yet as the media scare mongers would have you believe.

 

  You will know when that is going to happen  when the following occurs:

  • economies tank and people are hungry as it was before WW2
  • countries are leaderless
  • A great surge of nationalism

Anyone who gives up freedom for security will lose both.

 

Also as a thought:-  One of the most common phrases I hear from the uninformed is " If you have done nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about"

   My research has shown that this is a phrase uttered by the Nazis during their consolidation of power over the German people.

   The same phrase was used during the subjugation of the Jewish people.

Now I hear this phrase uttered by the academics and other people in authority as a way of placating the masses.

 To further qualify the answer of "easily" (which is correct) here is how they can.

At one time or another either yourself or someone on your behalf has done the following:

  • applied for a birth certificate
  • enrolled in school
  • graduated
  • applied for a job
  • got hired
  • paid taxes
  • applied for a load
  • applied for a credit card
  • bought things on credit
  • got a driver's license
  • ticketed for some driving infraction
  • applied for and received a passport

That is just a small amount of things where you give out personal information that does not remain personal for a thousand reasons.

Now in today's media savvy:

  • you have applied to an internet service provider
  • used your computer online
  • used Email
  • visited a porn site
  • applied for cell phone service
  • made calls on said cell phone
  • accessed internet from the cell phone

In short everything you do adds to the wealth of information that is available about you online and in hardcopy files.

So when you apply for a paypal account, you have already provided the information to a file online.  So others besides the government can get access to your paypal information.

A scary list indeed, unfortunately its as easy as them telling paypal to hand your infomation over...

and thats if they don't already have your info, its likely they've had it for a while.

 

It isn't whether they can get your info its how long they have had it for.

They may have the info, but as long there is no taking money unauthorized from the account. No harm is done. I was wondering if maybe these same organization are attacking banks with DDos attacks lately.

 

The country i live in the banking system was constantly spammed by DDOS and unauthorized access. I have no doubt if we have our own PRISM we can identify the source to be the same people who are currently using PRISM to spy on us.

 

If this is the case we could swing this entire thing around, and now name them the bad guys they really are. Naming them Criminal organization is one way to fully take them out of commission. [Problem solved]

We're getting WW3 regardless of who becomes president.

 

Depending on your perspective, WW3 has been going on for decades.

 

Of course, many people just ignore the massacres and the millions and millions of people killed. And, since disease and old age still kill orders of magnitude more people, that is perhaps a wise choice. If we look at people killed by violence on a per-capita basis, I think we are still far more peaceful than our ancestors were (at least for what I can see of recorded history).

 

Then again, speaking globally, we are doing an awful job of feeding our children.  And I think that that needs to change.

Lets face it, its very likely its all been organized for "them" to gain power.

 

"Them" being the banks and the shadowy organizations sitting behind them

At the minute "they" are using governments and a demonized version of democracy to control the world.

 

Don't get me wrong, I like the idea of democracy, but damn!!!       what we have isn't democracy, its a rome-esk style tyranny.

 

The DOS attacks are being used to take what little freedoms we currently have, all in the name of security.

 

so I'll leave you with a quote, to finish my point.

This is true ... what we have is a Republic

 

I  think that we've been trying to form an Islamic Democracy, over in the middle east, still some work to do there. Feel free to join in the fun, if you want?

 

 

you might be a republic over in the US :P

 

Britain is a different story...

Today British authorities detained David Miranda, the partner of American journalist Glenn Greenwald.

Is it because    a ) he's a terrorist?

                       b ) gay?

                       or

                       c ) he looks like LordJerle?
