Be aware: Is your data exposed?

Recommended Posts

Don't kid your self biker or any one else.

 

If you have connected to the web/internet in the last 20 years, all your data is captured and stored by the NSA.

Google and the other main iron gates of the interwebs are just puppets and will if they can not avoid it, Divulge any and all information to the NSA.

For Christ sakes people! The internet was in effect founded by the American Government (NSA) Get over it. So What?

 

If you are worried about private information getting into hands you would rather it not be then encrypt and encrypt (HDD,OS,FS,VPN). I don't bother.

 

Anonymity on the net these days is not a question of can it be done? Unfortunately it's a question of for how long can one remain anonymous. Soon it will be wait were was that IPv6 address system.

I wouldn't be too worried about that porn collection or that illegal download of the latest TV episode I'd be more worried about if the next HakR is about to target me and if they are working for the government oh wait don't I pay my taxes oh yeah they work for me right? Wrong. Fukrs. I can't remember the last time I actually enjoyed the internet for more than an hour without some F&%Kn ad or tracking cookie Fu^Kn up my enjoyment.

 

If anyone still want's some semblance of security with anonymity then encrypt everything. If like me you only want security then worry more about authenticity. How can one person authenticate authenticity on the net? A pass word is futile in the end because even a 64K (that's 64 thousand characters) or (an arbitrary 3-64 character password properly hashed and salted) is trivial to brute hack these days without properly implemented salting and hashing.

SQRL is something I have looked into. It is open source and can provide independant anonymous login to any web site you would like to join any subscription you would like to subscribe to. It provides a method of reclaiming your account should it be hacked and is cryptological speaking almost right. Still it relies on a master password for the account and websites to include, Acknowledge and implement it's implementation of identity security. It also as far as I know does not use the most divisive or complicated means of encryption available today although it is by far the most secure implementation using open source software or any software as far as I know.

 

Some links to the pages of most interest:

I hope this sort of thing is implemented by web site admins but I have my doubts.

Meh, the whole idea of privacy is a relic of the past anyway. Who doesn't have kinky halloween photos of themselves ball-gagged in sad-clown submissive lingerie in their backroom bdsm disco dungeon getting whipped by their murderous-clown-wear dominatrix?

 

There are no secrets left, and I just had the best idea for an FM scene. Seriously though, if people don't harm anyone, there is nothing for them to be ashamed of. The governement should be ashamed of thinking anything harmless could be grounds for punishment, but we shouldn't have anything to hide. Just my personal opinion. I understand some people still value privacy, so I wouldn't torture them by invading it myself.

Snowden did go to risk for nothing. Much of what he disclosed was available legally if people bothered to dig. And even of what he did disclose, people only cared about what embarasses a government -- again the obsession with secrets and shame -- and not, you know, reforming government. How many people who love Snowden ever read a policy paper in their life? The problem is people's laziness and apathy, I agree.

 

To answer your question, I live in a country, Japan, where it's very common for cleaning women to decide to mop a bathroom while I'm urinating, and not bat an eye mopping directly under my stream. If they don't bat an eye, why should I?

 

For your condition, or cases like that, I wouldn't say it's ok for anyone else to publicize it. I'd say in many cases I'd invite people to be masters of their fate & have no problem doing it themselves, and flip the bird to the fuckwits. Do the Gauls think Caesar is weak because he's epilectic? Let Caesar occupy your homeland and tell me what you think of Caesar then. But it's nothing people should even care about knowing either, since it doesn't speak to you or anyone as a person.

 

Of course I was exaggerating my point for humor & discussion. I think people should be left alone in many cases. But I don't think it should be because of shame, but just because it's nice to be alone and left in peace sometimes. And least of all the opinions of small people who can't control their emotions. Different motivations. But I think we're agreeing on shame not being part of it, but avoiding the hassle. Of course context matters too. It doesn't apply the same to all kinds of secrets.

 

@Lowenz, She's harmless. I meant just a murdering clown suit, with fake blood on it and plastic hatchet, not an actual murdering clown. Well I guess there's the whipping, but that should be consentual in advance, safeword and all that. Ah, I crack myself up. I only wish I had a disco dungeon.

 

Edit. Speaking of the OP, I'm not against the concern. My thinking is if the NSA thinks they're ok taking our secrets, we're ok knowing their's. Information wants to be free, and in an ideal world everything would be out there for the adults to discuss, and not the childish to blush at.

Being realistic, if it is connected, it can be subverted, so some information just isn't meant for the Internet.

 

However, while elementary precaution can't fully protect you from the NSA, it may well protect you from the malicious low-lives prowling 4chan.


Come the time of peril, did the ground gape, and did the dead rest unquiet 'gainst us. Our bands of iron and hammers of stone prevailed not, and some did doubt the Builder's plan. But the seals held strong, and the few did triumph, and the doubters were lain into the foundations of the new sanctum. -- Collected letters of the Smith-in-Exile, Civitas Approved

  • See above and prevent said puppets from getting the data in the first place.
  • Er the NSA was formed in 1952 by Truman and DARPA in 1958 Eisenhower, The beginnings of the internet were started by darpa and the web was invented by a brit, Tim Berners-Lee.

However, while elementary precaution can't fully protect you from the NSA, it may well protect you from the malicious low-lives prowling 4chan.

Them and the low-lives at Google/Yahoo/Bing.

People have always assumed the US Government were doing domestic spying outside of constitutional bounds. The problem is that Snowden revealed just how bad and deep it is.

Exactly, But also the UK and AUS governments.

We are never going to live in a world like that, a lot of human beings by their very nature are nasty, self obsessed with hidden agenda's that can't be trusted.

 

But back on point the OP didn't mention the nsa, it mentioned securing your data. Most people would not leave their front door open, so neither should they be doing the same thing with their devices.

@Atomic, I think you're on the right track that the boundaries of what we think of as 'privacy' are very culturally defined.

 

As for Japan, the reason nudity & bodily things are so open has more to do with Shinto & the idea that nature is pure & we should be in touch with nature. It was part of the culture back when Japan was mostly rural villages too. There's also the rice planting culture (long story), but it makes people feel justified to be nosy about what their neighbors are up to, since rice has to be maintained as a village. Since I've lived with a Japanese for quite a few years, I've absorbed a lot of the culture too. Ironically their gov't is notoriously secretive, and the population just rolls over. They need guys like y'all raising a little Cain.

 

But anyway my original point about the death of privacy in the West too was because the confessional culture we have, where we're putting everything up on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or just in the cloud for holding, knowing it's liable to go public. Over time, the line between private & public life is going to disappear as things get pushed I think. I don't say it's even good or bad. It's just something I predict will happen, and the next generation will think differently than we do. And issues like the OP is how it starts.

Snowden

 

I believe that the topic generally has been way too much exagerated.

All of this Snowden, Julian Assange and freedom for the internet craze is just a way for them to make publicity. If Snowden is so brave then why not answer before the law?

Going on a trip to China and Russia makes him much less credible. It seems like they just want fame and recognition. AS IF nobody knew about NSA and the activity of the secret services of the USA and the UK in general.

 

But it's a matter of perspective at the end of the day. Why doesn't he speak of the russian FSB? Of the migrants that get humiliated and treated like animals from those poor asian countries... It's all got a political motive, I'm sure. Just another echo of the Cold War.

I'm just amazed that this card wasn't played until the end yet.


"I really perceive that vanity about which most men merely prate — the vanity of the human or temporal life. I live continually in a reverie of the future. I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active — not more happy — nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago. The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

No, not for nothing. He did the world a very big service, and one day it will be recognized, I hope.

Meanwhile there are enough people out there that care, and most of them know a bit better what to fear - and thats why you don't read that much from them.

 

Sure, enough people are just apathic to it, true, otherwise Fort meade would be a smoking ruin by now.

Answering before a corrupt, secret law, that just vanishes people, tortures them, and abducts them abroad, has nothing to do with bravery. That would just be stupid. Its ironic that he found shelter in another country like that has similar problems, but at least someone gave him shelter.

 

One day the "brave" people spying, abducting and torturing (just to remind: thats a proven case, Guantanamo if anyone forgot) will hopefully trialled and hanged. In this corrupt world I wouldn't get my hopes up though.

 

Much reason to hide your data from any eyes.

The worrying thing is, parts of the scenario of "Winter soldier" are not far fetched.

 

I know I am still too trusting with data and security.

The question is not whether these things are done. The question is which government does it more? So he is willing to demonize the west and make Russia fluffy and innocent?

People went to talk as free people in Russia and they would be systematically held in post-soviet Guantanamoes, yet frankly nodody cares about 2'nd world countries. People suffered for more than this Snowden. He is not a hero because he chose the easy life.

He never criticized the much worse governments of China and Russia he just stood by their "the west is decaying" position. Everyone knows how the police and the mass media there works. He's just a pawn in the end.

 

Everyone is entitled to their opinion of course but whatever.

As for the fame argument - Snowden was an NSA contractor who was making big bucks, had a great career, a hot girlfriend and lived a comfortable life. He threw EVERYTHING away to reveal the depths of what the NSA was doing... for fame? There are far easier ways to be famous.

 

 

I agree that the information he provided may be valuable to some extent to the people. But the way he did...

Frankly these just tell me that by getting asylum in Russia he simply has connections. To me, he speaks things in a selective way. But it's wrong when you got to a totalitarian state and speak about human rights and privacy.

At the very least it's silly to participate in a live Q & A session with Putin... Let's not make Snowden a perfect person and saviour of humanity. When there's a war in Ukraine he ignores it. If you ignore it - you approve it.

I am sure most people are aware that Russia isn't a saints state (As i wrote in the first post too, but a bit hidden maybe)

I am sure he is aware too.

 

The problem for him was, he only had the direct information from the US. and then no other country would take him in.

To get at the direct information from Russia, we would need someone come out at that side.

 

Frankly these just tell me that by getting asylum in Russia he simply has connections. To me, he speaks things in a selective way. But it's wrong when you got to a totalitarian state and speak about human rights and privacy.

Definitly not a perfect person, no one is.

I am not sure he had connections to Russia though, thats just the "obvious" way (and it was one of the few left, since so many others weren't willing). Just as the US (and other states too) have taken in opposing spies.

You are right, a live Q & A if Putin might not have been necessary. (As long as the facts are shrouded it is hard to judge)

 

He hasn't set himself up as spokesman for human rights though, at least not in my eyes.

He wanted the US he lived in to be better than they were, seeing that they could do better.

So he took down a shroud and hoped seeing what they were doing would change minds.

He didn't have immediate success, maybe its making progress, maybe it gets worse. There will be a point in history where we will know.

In theory, this is a good policy, but it doesn't work so well when the government's mission is to give the entertainment industry a continuous hand-job and collect all kinds of data on average citizens in an unjustified manor that will never be abused (cough loveint cough). For example, this. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/04/11/eff_calls_for_games_dmca_exemption/

The government would restrict my right to breathe if the entertainment industry paid them enough. After all, breathing encourages free thought and it can be argued to enable piracy too.

Yep, and although breathing is an exageration, They already sold out our rights to free speech. For example, if I write code that you can use to bypass an unwanted feature on software you paid for, I can go to jail for releasing it. I can go to jail just for writing some code and releasing it to the public, when the code is not malicious and does not threaten anyone.

 

Aren't writings classified as a form of speech?

Well, what the bottom point of his declarations are, is that human rights are broken by the bad, corrupt US government.

He didn't directly say he is a human rights activist but he is often presented (which he never denied far as I am aware) to be a whistleblower.

 

My complaint is that in doing so he stands in a very defiant and honestly what I qualify - very hypocritically side by side to a state which breaks these fundamental rights every day. I mean, Russia is turning it's internet into taboos left and right. Sites are closing, Crimea is taken. People lament and justify everything it does. Not a sign of critical thinking.

At least that Julian Assange character stayed in Ecuador who had, a man who had similar claims (although he comes from Sweden).

 

Thing is that these people don't seem to realize that there are much, much worse places and their contribution doesn't seem too valuable from where I stand.

- This was in 2012. Those who beat those people never answered before the law and almost all cases where political interests are involved in Russia (and CIS countres) get dumped for later. It's system problems that don't exist in western countries. The justice system is much more transparent and seeing how Ferguson was handled versus this - you get the idea. People protest, get in riots and the police doesn't allow itself to abuse as much as the Russian one(I'm going to say mostly Belarus, Russia, Kazahstan, Azerbaidjan because that's where it's the worst right now). We're living in different worlds when it comes to that.

This was in 2012. Those who beat those people never answered before the law and almost all cases where political interests are involved in Russia (and CIS countres) get dumped for later. It's system problems that don't exist in western countries. The justice system is much more transparent and seeing how Ferguson was handled versus this - you get the idea.

I think I see from what point of view you are coming from, and understand your view.

And you are right in my opinion, that there are worse countries, with less transparency, and that this is bad.

While there are similar corruption problems in western countries, they are usually not carved that deep into the system itself.

 

I think any progress towards more transparency worldwide will help making an influence everywhere else too, although change is often slow.

Language barriers slowly crumbling helps too.

(Before online translation i wouldn't had a chance to find out what may be happening in that video - if no one (e.g. a newspaper) translates it to me, I could just ignore it. Now, after a few trials to find a translation, i could at least get an idea via online translation)

 

Today many things stop being done, because they can be seen more and more. Thats why I think bringing shady things to public is a good thing.

(and I still advocate privacy and its protection, interesting enough i don't view this as conflicting: The highest transpararency possible of public groups, the highest privacy possible for each person.)

 

I can understand now though, with that in mind, why you think Snowden is standing close to the wrong governments.

That is my hope as well. Over time people need to develop skills of thinking for themselves.

Maybe Snowden helps that, I just wish he wouldn't be used like another Anti-American tool for Russia.

 

At the end of the day maybe he'll be some sort of Mathias Rust (in the sense of the changes that it caused).

By the way piracy is very common in CIS regions (reason for the lowered, more attractive prices).

It's simply troubling how, during the biggest changes Snowden just happens not get involved. I understand it's not his business either, but this adventure will end at some point. I can't help but hope it's for the best.

 

To some extent though it's not normal either to leak secret documents, regardless what they are, as far as I know it's not only about the government watching but also explaining how it's done. But again, this is a test of how mobile the secret services are in responding to these threats.

There is the Deep Web, TIME article: http://time.com/630/the-secret-web-where-drugs-porn-and-murder-live-online/, which (how I remember it) is a system of going anonymously and encrypted through many different servers and is actually so secure that even the NSA hasn't cracked it yet. Criminals can run and purchase from wholesale Amazon-like bazaars for drugs and guns for years without getting caught. Perhaps the last method for those really concerned about their privacy online?

The result will never vary — and to suppose that it will, is to suppose that the foregone man has lived in vain — that the foregone time is but the rudiment of the future — that the myriads who have perished have not been upon equal footing with ourselves — nor are we with our posterity. I cannot agree to lose sight of man the individual, in man the mass."...

- 2 July 1844 letter to James Russell Lowell from Edgar Allan Poe.
