    Hackers, possibly nation-state actors, have penetrated U.S. government networks and accessed election systems, the FBI and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said in a joint alert. In some cases, there was unauthorized access to election support systems, CISA added. The agency, which is part of the Department of Homeland Security, explained there is no evidence so far that the integrity of elections data was compromised and that "it does not appear these targets are being selected because of their proximity to elections information..."
  • US Bishops’ Committee for Religious Liberty Joins Interfaith Coalition Calling on Congress to Increase Funding for Security Grants for Houses of Worship

    The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee for Religious Liberty has joined an interfaith coalition calling on Congress to increase funding for the Nonprofit Security Grant Program (NSGP). This program provides grants to nonprofits and houses of worship in order to enhance security through improvements to infrastructure, funding for emergency planning and training, upgrading security systems, and some renovation projects. While the program has been popular, lack of funding prompted many applicants for grants to be turned away in 2019. The coalition is calling on Congress to quadruple the total funding for the program to $360 million. From the...
  • Clear Evidence of Collusion’ Between Huawei, CCP, Says UK Report by British defense committee

    The British defense committee reported on Oct. 8 that there’s “clear evidence of collusion between Huawei and the Chinese state” and urged the government to urgently remove Huawei’s equipment from the country’s telecommunications infrastructure by 2025. In July, Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered that Huawei be purged from Britain’s 5G networks by 2027 amid fears of spying and sabotage, and following tough U.S. sanctions against the company affecting its supply of up-to-date chips. The defense committee report, however, states that the purging should be done years earlier even if it involves recompense for current operators. “The Government should take necessary...

  • CIA’s new tech recruiting pitch: More patents, more profits

    Technology Review ^ | 09 21 2020 | Patrick Howell O'Neill
    The newest federal lab gives the CIA and its officers the unprecedented ability to make money off inventions that come from within the agency. America’s most famous spy agency has a major competitor it can’t quite seem to beat: Silicon Valley. The CIA has long been a place cutting-edge technology is researched, developed, and realized—and it wants to lead in fields like artificial intelligence and biotechnology. However, recruiting and retaining the talent capable of building these tools is a challenge on many levels, especially since a spy agency can’t match Silicon Valley salaries, reputations, and patents. The agency’s solution is...
  • New York Times: Trump Wants to Cripple TikTok and WeChat. Why?

    New York Times ^ | 09/21/2020 | Greg Bensinger, member of the editorial board.
    He says that they are a security threat. If so, it is time to show the world the evidence. President Trump’s plan to severely restrict the popular WeChat and TikTok apps could be viewed as a tit-for-tat for China’s yearslong prohibition of American services like Facebook and Google. But I’d like to think we’re better than that. The president has cited security concerns in his quest to force the sale of the U.S. operations of TikTok to an American firm, setting off a bidding war that reached its nadir when he called for a fee to be paid to the...
  • Anyone Have Experience Using A Browning Trail Cam As A Home Security Camera?

    Looking at the Strike Force Extreme with a steel cover as I want a low profile discreet setup attached to the top of our yard gate which is 6 feet in height. (Link and URL are to the Browning Strike Force shown on Amazon.) Adjacent property owner is trespassing in our front yard and deliberately destroying our lawn along his driveway, extending out to five feet of our lawn. This was suggested to me by a sergeant major with the county sheriff's office. He said to install a camera because their experience was its presence would alter this person's behavior...
  • The TSA and Security Theater: Understanding American Airport Security Following 9/11

    09/09/2020 9:06:16 PM PDT · by ammodotcom · 14 replies ^ | 9/9/2020 | Brian Miller
    Following the attacks of September 11th, Congress passed the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA), creating the Transportation Security Agency (TSA). The TSA replaced private security screening companies with one government agency. Since then, air travelers have bowed to pat downs, bans on water bottles and other inconvenient, intrusive procedures as the “new normal” at our nation’s airports. But does any of this make us safer?
  • Internationalising The Greatest Generation – Australian veteran calls for more respect for WW2.

    Internationalising The Greatest Generation – Australian veteran calls for more respect for WW2. China’s maritime claims in the South China Sea mean that it is primarily Indonesia that stands between Australia and the “People’s Liberation Army” of totalitarian communist China. In an open letter published in the link accompanying this post, former Australian army captain, Demetrios Kitsiou, supports my contention that sharing better respect with Indonesia for the heroes of World War Two is one way for Australia to be more secure in an uncertain future. In Indonesia the most sacred national holiday of the year is August 17 in...

    Wealthy Americans aren’t just fleeing big cities for rural communities amid the virus pandemic, social unrest, and surge in violent crime; some of these folks are leaving the country until the dust settles. Citizenship advisers, government agencies, and real estate developers are pointing out a surge in inbound migration flow of Americans to countries in the Caribbean Sea ahead of the US presidential election. Forbes spoke with Mohammed Asaria, whose Range Developments is constructing six new Senses resorts in Grenada, said Americans are flocking to the Caribbean as a means to ‘hideout’ from the socio-economic implosion stateside. “You’ve got the...

    Like all operating systems, Linux isn't perfectly secure. Nothing is. As security guru, Bruce Schneier said, "Security is a process, not a product." It's just that, generally speaking, Linux is more secure than its competitors. You couldn't tell that from recent headlines which harp on how insecure Linux is. But, if you take a closer look, you'll find most -- not all, but most -- of these stories are bogus. For instance, Boothole sounded downright scary. You could get root access on any system! Oh no! Look again. The group which discovered it comes right out and says an attacker...

    As forces mass in Europe, the biggest stumbling block to EuropeÂ’s future strategic independence as well as American grand strategy is once again Germany. North Atlantic Treaty Organization allies Turkey and Greece are embroiled in a dispute over Turkish oil and gas exploration in the Mediterranean, and Greece is backed by the French navy. After the French military conducted training exercises with Greek forces in the region on Thursday, Turkey warned France to retreat. Within a day, three things happened in rapid succession.First, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo signed a treaty to relocate troops out of Germany to...

    Ihad the opportunity to interview author J.P. Redding (a pseudonym) shortly after his first book “Off Grid” came out. Initially, I thought it was a survivalist book. The subtitle “Is there anywhere to hide from the surveillance state?” suggested that. It turns out that it is a science fiction book, as well.

    Martin Luther King gave us an excellent example as to how to fight the tyranny of injustice. The Protestors that are invading our cities and calling for lawlessness can be over come. The way to do it is with non violent resistance, just as Martin Luther King did. When we see a protest of 40 or 50 of the "brownsirts" that the Liberal Democrats have organized to Dox someone in the middle of the night by creating a disturbance, it is possible to counter that noise with the heavenly sounds of Gospel music. I don't know how to do it,...

    May 21, 2020, at about 10:53 p.m, in Phoenix's Ahwatukee Foothills neighborhood, officers are responding to a noise complaint thinly disguised as a domestic violence incident. The complainant is desperate to get to sleep because he has to get up to go to work. He tells the dispatcher at 10:18 it is a domestic altercation. The exact time of the second call is not given, but the caller says it is a half-hour after the first call. In the second call, the caller makes clear this is a noise complaint.  He is asked if this is a male and a...
