Internet Privacy: could Your Online Porn Viewing Details Go Viral

Even if you are using privacy tools is your internet browsing safe. How secret are your financial transactions, are the off colour jokes you share with friends really private, and what about the kind of sites you would never tell your mother you visit? While you are watching porn, who is watching you?

Interesting story featured in The Indy today, I did a bit more digging to the source. Having often crossed swords with science worshippers who believe all technology is handed down to us on tablets of printed circuit board stuff by The Gods Of Science, and is therefore good and should not be doubted, I was gratified to see that my repeated warnings that there is absolutely no privacy on the internet, and far from being a benign tool invented by a geek scientist to liberate information, it is in fact an evil surveillance tool developed by government security agencies in collaboration with corporate control freaks for the purpose of controlling us.

from Brett Thomas’ blog

The premise of this post is simple: If you are watching/viewing porn online in 2015, even in Incognito mode, you should expect that at some point your porn viewing history will be publicly released and attached to your name.
How is this possible?

This is an uncomfortable topic to talk/write about, which perhaps contributes to how we’ve arrived at the current state. So, to understand the threat, start with some technical considerations:

Browser footprints: Web browsers leave an essentially unique footprint every time you visit a web page, even in Incognito mode (and even without supercookies). This is well established; many web tools such as Panopticlick will confirm that you give a website lots of information about your computer every time you visit.

Global identifiers: Linking your browser footprint on one website to your footprint on another website – or to a previous footprint on the same website – is straightforward. You should think of your browser footprint as a persistent global identifier, and this is particularly true if you don’t take any measures to hide your IP address (eg. a VPN). The EFF has an excellent technical overview of how this works.

User tracking: Tracking web users is super valuable, so almost every traditional website that you visit saves enough data to link your user account to your browser fingerprint, either directly or via third parties. The Economist ran an overview of user tracking in September. (Though, interestingly, there is no mention of adult websites.)

Hacking is ubiquitous: We hear about data breaches that involve tangible harm – Target, Anthem, TurboTax – but not the (likely great majority) of cases when hackers don’t want additional exposure. Or, paraphrasing the FBI director: There are two types of companies…those that know they’ve been hacked…and those that don’t know they’ve been hacked.

How might this happen?

Judge Denies Attempt To Block Obama’s Transfer Of Internet Oversight To UN

October 2016: In a last ditch effort to block Obama’s plan to allow the US Commerce Department to hand over oversight of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to a multi-stakeholder community – which includes the technical community, businesses, civil society and foreign governments – 4 state attorneys went to a Texas federal court alleging that the transition, in the absence of congressional approval, amounts to an illegal forfeiture of U.S. government property. Confirming once more that under Obama’s Presidency the judiciary and legal system have been totally politicised, their case was thrown out on a technicality.

Disabled People Say Please Don’t Be Offended On Our Behalf

I’ve met a lot of people over the past seventeen years, being disabled myself, and when we get talking about our experiences one thing that comes up all the time is the thing we find most offensive: Not the jokes, not the remarks that could be interpreted as offensive by a shyster lawyer, but being patronised by middle class, Labour voting, hand-wringing, politically correct types who have elected themselves to think on our behalf.

So this story of a Twitter exchange was very amusing (and I’m with the online retailer who is the target of the latest Twitter Two Minutes Hate session.

On Saturday night, the social media team looking after online retailer Joy’s Twitter account received saw fit to respond to a legitimate complaint from a customer about what she thought an offensive card for those suffering from bipolar, by replying: “then if you know someone with bipolar disorder, don’t buy it for them. PROBLEM SOLVED”. The customer then asked how people suffering from the problem would react on seeing it, to which Joy responded: “They’ll like it one minute, and hate it the next?” (Read all – including a lively comment thread)

And so began the latest Twitter storm.

I don’t know what it is about bipolar disorder that makes every insignificant piece of shit in Islington start screeching when anyone makes a joke about the problem, but several people I know who are actually diagnosed as bipolar are very witty when discussing it, and don’t mind the jokes that go back. They can see the funny side of being bipolar.

In the same way people like me who have suffered brain damage can usually see the funny side of our problems, and we don’t need some pretentious, politically correct, self righteous leftie screecher to tell us what to think and how to feel. It’s fucking offensive in fact.

Labour Veteran Mitchell Bollocked For Having An Opinion

Veteran Labour MP Austin Mitchell is in trouble with party leaders. “What has dear old Austin done to upset The Inner Party? you might well ask.

He has committed the three greatest crimes in the rule book of The British National socialist Workers Party: Speaking his mind, having an opinion not pre – approved by leaders of The Inner Party and going against the interests of the Labour Party’s superwealthy elitist paymasters, and standing up for the interests of the workers. He is also guilty of having a mind of his own, a crime in all main UK political parties.

The Great Grimsby MP has been reprimanded by whips over an “unacceptable” remark likening a US pharmaceutical giant to “rapists” over its bid to take over a British rival, as Ed Miliband faced calls to sack him.

Austin Mitchell sparked outrage with a post on Twitter criticising David Cameron for refusing to block the proposed takeover of AstraZeneca by Viagra maker Pfizer.

The veteran Labour MP launched his online tirade shortly after the Labour leader accused the Prime Minister in the Commons of putting ideology before British jobs in his approach to the proposed deal.’

To be fair, although Mitchell genuinely believed he was defending British industry and British jobs in attacking the proposed takeover of the UK based phamaceutical company, calling Pfizer rapists was a bit out of order. It’s true that the US drug company warned Astra Zeneca bosses “We’re going to fuck you up the arse whether you like it or not,” but Astra Zeneca bosses and shareholders, on seeing the money on offer did respond by dropping their pants and bending over.

Heartbleed: A Security Flaw Or A Deliberate Move Towards Government Control of the Internet

On the other side of my face I’m laughing however at those nerds and geeks who spent years wetting themselves everytime PC Wanker reported someone had discovered a bigger prime number. “Oooooooohhhhheeeeeeee, better security, they squealed. Sadly not because where the security keys generated by SSL start to protect is just about the lat place anyone who understands the technology would try to catch your account numbers, passwords etc.

What I find amazing is this vulnerability in the Open SSL system, which was supposed to give total security for online transactions was known of almost as soon at the system was launched. It now seems very likely that the developers knew the system was useless before they launched it on an unsuspecting public. And you can bet the cybershits knew about it long before the good guys found it.

Anyone out there still think I’m a dinosaur for refusing to do online banking etc.

from Infowars

Dire warnings about Heartbleed, a serious internet security risk affecting millions of websites, is echoing across the internet today. Described as a flaw in OpenSSL, the open source encryption technology used by the vast majority of web servers, Heartbleed is said to put HTTPS e-commerce websites at risk.

The bug “can give hackers access to personal data like credit card numbers, usernames, passwords, and, perhaps most importantly, cryptographic keys—which can allow hackers to impersonate or monitor a server,” writes Lily Hay Newman.

The risk was discovered by a Google researcher at Codenomicon, a Finnish company specializing in the development of “fuzzing tools” to ensure computer network security. The Codenomicon client base includes government and the defense industry and, as noted below, has suspicious connections to Obama, DHS, and the FBI.

Heartbleed Internet Bug: Pretext For Web Lockdown?

‘The Heartbleed bug is being described as the most critical security flaw to hit the web since its inception, a crisis that could lay the groundwork for massive government regulation and censorship of the Internet.

“Millions of websites may have been leaking critically sensitive data for the past two years, thanks to a devastating flaw in the OpenSSL software many sites use to encrypt and transmit data,” reports Yahoo Tech, as experts warned web users to change all their passwords immediately in a bid to protect themselves from a vulnerability that could have allowed hackers to infiltrate millions of email accounts, sensitive tax records and a myriad of other private data.

“Catastrophic is the right word. On the scale of one to 10, this is an 11,” said security expert Bruce Schneier in a blog post which explains the implications of the flaw.

from BBC News

The major security flaw at the heart of the internet may have been exposing users’ personal information and passwords to hackers for the past two years.It is not known how widely the bug has been exploited, if at all, but what is clear is that it is one of the biggest security issues to have faced the internet to date.

The BBC has attempted to round up everything you need to know about Heartbleed in this very helpful page.

Proof that the left are the real elitists

Arianna Huffington was always an over ambitious social climber (and that’s the nicest thing we can say about her), remember how she dumped the late Bernard Levin when a better offer came along.

Although Huffington, nee Stassinopolis, was a conservative commentator early in her journalistic career she gradually became more left wing during her relationship with Levin which lasted from 1971 until 1980.

On the death of her husband Michael Huffington (she and Levin were never married,) she inherited a vast fortune, estimated at several hundred million US $.

When she created the Huffington Post online news site it had a left leaning political stance. Nothing wrong with that of course, although after Barack Obama rose to prominence by trading on the colour of his skin, huff Post as it was known became more closely aligned with the new left’s authoritarianism and the tyranny of political correctness.

Although Huff Post claimed to be a new media venue on which citizen journalists could reach a large audience, the site gradually became a mouthoiece for establishment figures. Criticism of big government attracted hate attacks in comment threads, criticism of Obama, no matter how reasonable and justified, was dismissed as racist, expressing reservations about abortion on demand identified one as a fundamentalist Chistian and young earth creationist and so on through the catalogue of leftie obsessions.

Now Huffington has gone all the way by announcing a new venture, The World Post in partnership with with billionaire Nicolas Berggruen (the next Mr. Huffington?). The new site will use the same business model as the Huffington Post. It will exploit unpaid citizen journalists who will provide window dressing for content dominated by the likes of former British prime minister Tony Blair, Microsoft’s Bill (Beelzebub) Gates and Google’s Eric Schmidt.

“You can have all those heads of state and major business people, etcetera etcetera, writing right next to an unemployed man from Spain, a student from Brazil. The great heart of HuffPo is no hierarchy,” Huffington told a reporter from The Guardian.

But why? We can read the neo – fascist ravings of those world domination freaks anywhere. The unemployed guy from Spain might actually have something interesting to say.

The latest Huffington venture will be launched at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the most exclusive and expensive of alpine resorts, later this month. The Davos jolly for global totalitarian government supporters is a kind of Bilderberg lite.

The idea of The World Post, according to libertarian commentators is to use the Huffington Post model to deliver the global elite message (“You must never question authority,”) to the masses. This is critically important now that the establishment’s grip on control of information is dying as mainstream media expries having lost the trust of its customer base. People are increasingly turning to alternative media websites to find our what scams and tricks their rulers are up to.

Online Ads Screwing You? I Told You So.

In a post called Cashless Society a few days ago I explained how the pressure from government and banking corporations to push us all into doing our banking and most of our business online, thus creating a cashless society in which even the most trivial transaction (using a public toilet for example) leaves a digital audit trail so there is a complete record of everything you do.

In that article I warned of the lack of security in digital technologies, the amount of hogwash involved in things the the https socket which is supposed to provide complete security (and without giving details I described how cyber crooks (who are not interested in you specifically, only your money) would grab your account details and passwords before it reached the https encryption process) and described how the cashless society would leave you without cash as fraudsters emptied your accounts and maxed out your credit. Cashless Society, Cashless People

Now I get to say once again, I told you so: Yahoo admit online adverts spread malware

Sometime last year I wrote an article about a new breed of television that will not only report what you are watching to online databases but will be equipped with concealed cameras and microphones to spy on you in your home (They have their spied in your TV now).

Never trust technology, always check that you know exactly what it can do and who can control those functions. Machines are not evil, they are inanimate, it’s the people who sell them that are shits.

Facebook are Nazis – I Told You So

Boggart Blog, The Daily Stirrer, Little Nicky Machiavelli and all my other web presences have been telling you for years that the moonfaced nerd and boss of Facebook, Mark Cocksuckerberg is a world domination freak, like the semi – autistic Bokanovsky Twins Page and Brin of Google, like Mr. Not Fit For Purpose himself, Bill Gates, like Bezos, at Amazon, Biz Stone of Twitter (who sounds a right shit don’t you think), Netflix’s Wilmot Reed, and all the rest of the internet entrepreneurs who fortunes have been built on invading our privacy and stealing our personal data.

Now, in common with Google, Facebook have admitted their agenda was always about controlling the information people can see online, in order to manipulate users for their own advantage.

Recent changes made to Facebook’s algorithm now limits the amount of reach a single page has to 1%, if you are really lucky, 2%. What this means is, the freedom to share quality information is being limited to those who have money to pay Facebook to share their content. This is bad news for people who want to have an influential voice in the world.

The need for people to band together and work together is becoming greater with changes like this.

According to Facebook themselves:

“Your brand can fully benefit from having fans when most of your ads show social context, which increases advertising effectiveness and efficiency.”

“We expect organic distribution of an individual page’s posts to gradually decline over time as we continually work to make sure people have a meaningful experience on the site.”

“We’re getting to a place where because more people are sharing more things, the best way to get your stuff seen if you’re a business is to pay for it.”

What this means is if you have a meaningful message and you want to freely and organically share it across Facebook, you can’t anymore unless you want to pay for it. Perhaps it was FB realizing that anyone could reach a lot of people easily that made them see the potential for profit should those people still want to reach people, or maybe this is their way of trying to clean up Facebook. Either way, this is going to do nothing but cripple pages ability to reach their audience who they worked a long time to build.”

Yeah they will without compunction destroy businesses that refuse to do things their way. The Mafia used to call it, “Da protection bizniz.” The SS used to call it, “Ve haf vays of making you obey.”

New From Apple – SP iPhone

With the usual ballyhoo, which as iusual amounted to Much Ado About Nothing (we’re nothing if not cultured at this blog), Apple computer launched its latest iPhone offering this week iPhone 5 with iOS 7. As usual the Apple fan club are raving about innovation, technical brilliance and how Apple are years ahead of the competition in smart phone technology. And as usual the new iPhone costs far more for equivalent specification and will do nothing that the latest Samsung Galaxy, Sony Eriksson Xperia or Nokia Lumina cannot do (and the competition does most things rather better). So what does the iPhone offer for your money? The video below explains it all.

Once again Populis have taken the ability to embed videos from me. Here’s a link – it’s worth a click.

Latest from Apple – iPhone5 NSA

‘Fraid it’s true, the blessesd Jobs was a government agent, even more diligent in giving government agencies access to Apple users privacy that Bill Gates and his Microsoft backstabbers when it came to putting your privacy on the line online..

So what kind of products can we expect from Apple in future. We can only speculate what features will be built into the I Watch but we guess only a fool or someone who facied sharing their most intimate details with NSA and GCHQ agents would take one into the bedroom at night.

Jimmy Savile reincarnate?

A Middlesborough man was arrested after he collected hundreds of videos of children that he convinced into trusting by posing as Justin Bieber online

The BBC reported Monday 35-year-old Robert Hunter has been sentenced to 14 years in prison for inciting children to engage in sexual activity and for collecting indecent photos.

A young girl in in Tasmania called police after Hunter tried to solicit her, which allowed them to track where the indecent messages were coming from.

Hunter was charged with more than 30 counts of these crimes after police found 800 videos of young boys and girls stripping and revealing themselves on camera.

The Hunter presented himself as pop star Justin Bieber from 2010 to 2012 and told young girls that he would be their boyfriend if they would strip and perform certain acts on camera.

So how did he get away with it? Take a look at our secret twins shots below…

Another Conspiracy Theory Comes True: Online Shills Are Paid To Control Opinion.

had a visit from one of those paid shills for Big Pharma today, weeks after I posted about some dickhead America doctor campaigning for mandatory vaccines during the Swansea measles outbreak (that as we all now know amounted to eight people all of whom had been vaccinated actually getting measles.

Oh you didn’t know? You’ll find all that you didn’t read or hear in mainstream news at this link Well that was the subject of my post you see, biased reporting in the media and particularly by the Bolshevik Broadcasting Corp. Unfortunately the Troll to berate me for my idleness and incompetence by referring to a passage I had quoted from an American child-health website.

Talk about laziness and incompetence, couldn’t even be arsed reading my post properly.

Anyway it put me in mind of this post at Bubblews:

It has long been whispered around the libertarian quarter of the +Blogosphere (where I usually hang out) that government shills patrol the +Web spreading disinformation on websites authored by people who question the official governmental line on any controversial topic. Anyone who has ever questioned a post on Climate change and pointed out that ‘the +Science is not settled’ and though we know the climate is changing because the climate changes constantly, to suggest it is caused by Carbon Dioxide emissions from human activity is an oversimplification will have been subjected to a lynch mob of hate attacks.

Likewise anybody who declines to agree that same sex Marriage will be the greatest leap forward for civilization in two thousand years. Dissent is not tolerated and in the case of bearded queens in bridal gowns, tolerance is not enough, we are required to celebrate making a mockery of a tradition that means a great deal to many people.

Where do you think they come from, all these angry people who will stay in comment threads, spewing their hate at you until you decide life is too short to waste time on such stuff and turn away? Some people have said they are government and Corporate shills, paid to suppress free speech on the web by bullying and using diversion, deflection, misrepresentation and downright lies to cast doubt on anything the dissenters say.

How many thousands of times have I been called a Conspiracy Theorist or a paranoid right wing nut job for talking about what I knew of government and corporate +surveillance. Come on, I worked with digital networks, helped develop early generations of some of these technologies.

So who wanted to discredit me, who did not want what I said to go unchallenged? Let’s fce it, in the scheme of things I am nobody so which organisations might feel threatened by my information? Who would pay people to search out Dissent and try to discredit those who post it?

Now it’s official: the +US government has awarded a contract to a +Californian +Software company to develop a system capable of managing “online personalities”. The program will allow one person to manage up to 10 separate personas, and will be used to counter “extremist and dissident +Ideology and +propaganda”.

Those who visit forums and websites that tend to object to the actions of the current government won’t be surprised to hear that the paid trolls who have roamed the Internet randomly for the purpose purpose of suppressing free speech and manipulating opinions via social media will now be guided to their targets by a +Computer system.

Last year, an anonymous author confessed that he had worked as a paid shill targeting several popular alternative websites to spread disinformation. It seems he was just one soldier in a barmy army of professional trolls. These online personalities, known as “sock puppets”, will allow the government to “create a false consensus in online conversations, crowd out unwelcome opinions and smother commentaries or reports that do not correspond with its own objectives.”

I told you so. Score another one to the Conspiracy Theorists.
