  • The Problem With Technosolutionism

    American Conservative ^ | 1/15/2021 | Micah Mattix
    In The Hedgehog Review, Christine Rosen writes about technosolutionism. If the pandemic has made evident the precarious nature of the global economy (it could briefly be brought to a standstill by a single “bug”), it also showed how advanced our technology had become. We immediately found ourselves on Zoom, or other conferencing platforms, doing business, teaching class, or chatting with family and friends we were otherwise used to seeing regularly. The pandemic hit less than a year ago, and we already have not one but several vaccines. It is astounding. Yet, there are dangers, Rosen argues:

    Interestingly this was published on Movements.org website in 2011. It was part of Hillary’s State Department training given in Mexico City. This conference sponsored by Hillary’s State Department and Google. Training was provided to youth activists in the use of social media. Special classes were held in the use of software designed to evade government surveillance. This software is called TOR, funded thru Google, US Naval Research lab and George Soros’s Human Rights Watch. This is the same software WikiLeaks uses and is illegal in the United States per the Patriot act. This was archived since it has been scrubbed...

    Bleeping Computer ^ | Jan 14, 2021 | Ax Sharma
    An unpatched zero-day in Microsoft Windows 10 (and prior) allows attackers to corrupt an NTFS-formatted hard drive with a one-line command. In multiple tests by BleepingComputer, this one-liner can be delivered hidden inside a Windows shortcut file, a ZIP archive, batch files, or various other vectors to trigger hard drive errors that corrupt the filesystem index instantly. "Critically underestimated" NTFS vulnerability In August 2020, October 2020, and finally this week, infosec researcher Jonas L drew attention to an NTFS vulnerability impacting Windows 10 that has not been fixed. When exploited, this vulnerability can be triggered by a single-line command to...

    Just days ago, Twitter shocked the nation and international community alike by purging Donald J. Trump from its platform. Like hyenas, Big Tech companies attack in packs, and Facebook, Instagram, SnapChat, YouTube, and payment processor Stripe all quickly followed suit with their own bans and restrictions on the President.This dramatic full-spectrum “un-personing” of the President of the United States from the American digital communications infrastructure marks a clarifying inflection point in Americans’ understanding of what kind of country they live in, and who or what ultimately controls it. Big Tech’s deplatforming of Donald Trump also marks a dark culmination to...

    It only took four-plus years of incendiary tweets, racist statements and violent threats, but on January 8, Twitter finally decided to permanently ban the US president's account with just days left of his term – and with it, his primary platform for speaking to his devotees. In addition, Google, Amazon and Apple have cracked down on Parler, a possible plan B social media platform for the president and his followers. Reddit, Discord, Shopify, TikTok and Snapchat have also imposed restrictions. Jennifer Palmieri, a political adviser for the Obama administration, remarked dryly on Twitter: “It has not escaped my attention that...

    Unless you've been living under a rock, you know Tim Berners-Lee is a pretty important dude in the technology world. He's the father of the Internet, responsible for the birth of the World Wide Web as we know it. And he hates what it has become. So he's taking some action to fix it. Tim- Berners-Lee Reuters You see, for years now Berners-Lee has expressed his distaste at how major corporations have taken what was supposed to be a free environment and placed restrictions on it. He doesn’t like how groups like Facebook, Google, and Amazon have effectively centralized the...

    Twitter and Facebook are banning any discussion....simply discussions....about election fraud. They're coming for anyone with an alternative viewpoint, even as a discussion. Google App Store has also deplatformed right leaning app Parler. We imagine everyone saw the speeches yesterday? All outrage and "insurrection" and traitors and other inflammatory language? Does anyone know what the actual dollar amount of damage that was caused? A few thousand dollars. Total. But dems and lefties are talking like there was another Federal courthouse burned in Portland, a building leveled by a truck bomb in Oklahoma City, maybe some airliners crashed into New York skyscrapers....

    RUSH: We just have a new sound bite here from Nancy Pelosi, CNN’s Newsroom. She was talking with the correspondent Manu Raju. Manu Raju reported about Pelosi’s California call with the House Democrat caucus about possible new articles of impeachment against the Trumpster. RAJU: She’s making very clear that there’s more support for moving forward with impeachment among the House Democratic caucus now than there was the first time Donald Trump was impeached back in 2019. She said that she prefers the president resigning, or Vice President Mike Pence and the cabinet invoking the 25th Amendment to force the president...

    White House National Security Council establishes unified group to coordinate response across federal agencies to the threat. FireEye, which last Sunday disclosed a compromise at network management software vendor SolarWinds that allowed an unknown attacker to distribute malware to potentially thousands of organizations, has identified a killswitch that it says would prevent the malware from operating on infected networks. But in networks where the attackers might have already deployed additional persistence mechanisms, the killswitch will not remove the threat from victim networks, according to the security vendor. FireEye on Sunday said that an investigation it was conducting into a breach...

    Today’s internet search engines have the power to track our personal data and decide what content can be listed as top results. Users are increasingly concerned that big tech companies have an outsized influence on the information they can view, while gathering enormous amounts of data through browser activity. A group of American programmers has developed a new search engine intended to provide users with unbiased search results—without tracking the users’ IP, search history, and other information. They named the search engine “Right Dao”—referring to Daoism and its philosophical pursuit of truth. Right Dao developers have designed a new crawling...

Trickbot has been in the news of late due to its advanced capabilities. It has a modular design and is notable for its ability to gain administrative capabilities on infected computers. The entities behind the creation of the trojan are believed to be criminals in Russia and North Korea, and they have used...

A red wave turned Holder’s dreams into dust in state legislative races. State legislatures are where the redistricting action is, and the GOP flipped three chambers red, gaining 192 state house seats and 40 state senate seats nationwide.

    Technology giant Microsoft has filed a patent for a system to monitor employees' body language and facial expressions during work meetings and give the events a "quality score". A filing suggests it could be deployed in real-world meetings or online virtual get-togethers. It envisions rooms being packed with sensors to monitor the participants, which could raise privacy concerns. Microsoft is already under fire over a separate "productivity-score" tool. 'Employee-surveillance tool' That feature was introduced last year but came to prominence only after a public demo at a corporate event. It allows managers to keep track of individual workers' use of...

I understand we are taking a lot of companies word on what they say they do, and I know that at least one (Wire) says all their software is open source and is reviewed (on the Apple App store the top rated commment for Wire implies its not that secure.
