As Banks Embrace Biometric Tracking of Customers, Cybertheft Explodes in Mexico

Wolf Street With impeccable timing. By Don Quijones, Spain, UK, & Mexico, editor at WOLF STREET. Criminal organizations in Mexico have branched out into a lucrative new market and revenue stream: big data. They have developed innovative practices to obtain sensitive user information by lifting data from the databases of government agencies such as Condusef, Consar and Buró de Crédito. They call bank customers and spoof on the caller ID screen the phone number of the bank they claim to represent. To gain the target’s trust, they give the credit card security code to the target and ask if it matches...

This Should Raise Red Flags – Facebook Sought Medical Data

Futurism The hole that Facebook has been digging for itself appears to have gotten a little bit deeper. First it was the Cambridge Analytica scandal (which recently turned out to have affected a lot more usersthan originally claimed). Then it was Facebook collecting call data from Android phones. The latest revelation about Facebook’s data use brings things to a whole new level of personal. CNBC uncovered that Facebook sought anonymized medical data from major U.S. hospitals about their patients for a research project. This project would have seen health information matched with patients’ Facebook profiles. The system was in the “planning phase” as recently as March 2018,...

How to ditch Google: Start using these Framasoft online apps instead

NaturalNews How to ditch Google: Start using these Framasoft online apps instead Tuesday, April 03, 2018 by: Ethan Huff The hostile takeover of much of the web by tech giant Google has many people uneasy about the future of online free speech, especially as Google has increasingly engaged in rogue censorship tactics against independent media outlets that threaten the status quo. But the good news is that there are viable alternatives out there, at least as far as online apps and software are concerned. One of these alternatives is Framasoft, a robust educational network created back in 2001 that promotes the enrichment of...

YouTube Shooter Identified As Nasim Aghdam

Zero Hedge As it turns out, Tuesday’s shooting at YouTube headquarters (which has so far resulted in zero deaths other than that of the shooter, who committed suicide) had nothing to do with domestic violence and everything to do with blowback to YouTube’s demonetization efforts – as many initially feared. The shooter was identified as Nasim Aghdam who slammed YouTube for purportedly censoring her after she claimed that they demonetized her channels, including an exercise one devoted to exercise videos and another devoted to veganism. Aghdam channeled her anger toward YouTube into a paranoid manifesto published online. She wrote...

Here’s What Google and Facebook Know About You—And What You Can Do About It

Alternet If you use Google or Facebook, you may have wondered just how much of your personal data these big internet giants have access to. This is a good question to ask in our modern era of Big Data, constant connectivity and rapidly decreasing personal privacy. Some people, like Washington State Chief Privacy Officer Alex Alben, even argue that your personal data isn’t really “personal” at all. In other words, you may have unwittingly agreed to give your deepest information to third-party vendors through websites and apps simply by agreeing to their lengthy and frequently skimmed Terms of Service. By the looks...

Grindr shares users’ HIV status with third-party companies: report

The Hill Grindr, a gay dating and hook-up app, has reportedly provided its users’ HIV statuses to two outside companies. Apptimize and Localytics, both data-optimization firms, have received certain information that some Grindr users choose to include in their profiles, including their HIV status and “last tested date.” Antoine Pultier, a researcher who discovered Grindr’s data sharing and spoke with BuzzFeed News about it, said that other information provided to the two companies including GPS data, phone ID and email, could allow the companies to identify specific individuals with HIV. “The HIV status is linked to all the other information. That’s the...

Hold Up: What Actually Happened in Sierra Leone’s “Blockchain” Election?

Futurism On March 7, Sierra Leone held the first presidential election using blockchain, the distributed ledger technology poised to transform our world. At least, that’s what we were told. That’s according to Agora, the Swiss-based blockchain startup that claimed to have facilitated the blockchain-based election. “Sierra Leone’s 2018 presidential elections, which took place on March 7th, represents the first time in history that blockchain technology has been used in a national government election,” wrote Agora in a press releasedistributed on March 8. Media outlets — including TechCrunch, Quartz, and yes, Futurism — covered it accordingly. But Sierra Leone’s election officials say that’s not what happened. The National Electoral Commission (NEC) is the...

Quitting Facebook Leads To Drop In Cortisol Levels, Australian Study Shows

Inquisitr According to Statista, Facebook currently has more than 2 billion active monthly users, which makes it the most popular social network by a large margin. The much-discussed Cambridge Analytica scandal may have damaged Facebook’s reputation, as well as its shares — which have, as Timenoted, posted their steepest drop since 2015 — but how does Facebook affect our mental health and well-being? Eric Vanman and Rosemary Baker from the University of Queensland, and Stephanie Tobin from the Australian Catholic University have attempted to answer this question. In a study recently published in the Journal of Social Psychology, titled “The Burden of Online Friends,” the authors explore the...

Mailchimp is Shutting Down ICO and Blockchain-related Emails, and People Are Freaking Out

Futurism Consider this a shot across the bow of the entire ICO and blockchain-related sector: email marketing service Mailchimp recently enacted a policy shutting off Blockchain and ICO related accounts. Now, the first victims of this policy are getting the news, and responding in kind by attempting to read the riot act to a Twitter account whose avatar is a monkey with a hat. Mailchimp announced the policy by alerting its customers on Thursday over email. Its customers freaked out. Like so: So @MailChimp is closing the Week In Ethereum account in four weeks because they hate blockchains. Centralized capricious power is...

Zuckerberg Has Decided To Testify Before Congress

Zero Hedge   Zuckerberg’s decision means that Washington – not London – will be the site of the great public inquest into technology firms and their leveraging of sensitive user data for commercial purposes. Facebook has been the subject of a powerful public backlash since reports surfaced two weeks ago that Cambridge Analytica, a data analytics firm that worked for the Trump campaign, improperly used data from more than 50 million Facebook users during its work for the Trump campaign – a charge Cambridge has denied. Facebook has apologized profusely and Zuckerberg has claimed Facebook was mislead by CA,...

Spending bill paves way for 5G

CNet It looks like 5G deployments in the states will be getting a kick-start. The $1.3 trillion US government spending bill signed into law Friday includes a bipartisan effort to speed the rollout of 5G: the Ray Baum Act, named in honor of the late Energy & Commerce staff director who died last month. The legislation folds in language from the Mobile Now Act, which identifies more spectrum that can be used for 5G. The legislative package also clears the way for wireless spectrum auctions and reauthorizes the FCC for the first time in 28 years. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai applauded...

10 Decentralized Social Media Networks to Use Instead of Facebook

Activist Post The salient facts of the new Cambridge Analytica scandal are bad, and the optics are even worse for Facebook, which is already facing multiple battles both in legal courts and the court of public opinion. But this really is just the spilled pot of a long-boiling problem: growing discomfort within our citizen-consumer class over predatory data mining and the unaccountable shadow agencies and corporations being given access to our private lives via social networks. Big Brother has been privatized, and it may turn out to be far more dangerous than anything George Orwell predicted. Typically, Facebook has...
