Apparently at least one major government had an insider working undercover at Twitter:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/10/20/us/politics/saudi-image-campaign-twitter.html

It doesn't really matter if Twitter itself is trustworthy or not, simply having a vast amount of personal data in one place is going to attract spies from all sorts of organisations that wish to misuse it.

This is why decentralisation is important, to make it technically more difficult to invade people's privacy.

DuckDuckGo, the pro-privacy search engine, hits 30 million daily searches


In an age where it seems nearly every major internet service is looking to hawk your personal data, one pro-privacy search engine is experiencing massive growth.

DuckDuckGo, which bills itself as “the search engine that doesn't track you,” has just hit 30 million daily searches. According to the company, this is a new daily record for the search engine. DuckDuckGo makes its traffic stats publicly available in an effort to be as transparent as possible.

This new company record is about a 50% increase from its record of over 20 million searches in 2017. DuckDuckGo’s reached this new daily search record just this past Monday. As pointed out by Search Engine Journal, it’s interesting to note that DuckDuckGo’s new daily search record comes just days after news broke that Google exposed nearly 500,000 of its users’ data.

DuckDuckGo (DDG) emphasizes protecting searchers' privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results. DuckDuckG... show more

In a parallel universe where Ubuntu hadn't provided the "install alongside Windows" option (which it did about 10 years ago), I'd be writing enterprise Java on a Windows 10 machine, blissfully unaware of the existence of free software and believing that privacy is dead if Mark Zuckerberg says so.



Dear #purists and #absolutists,

It's great to be clean and pure yourself, but sometimes you have step into the mud to pull out others who are stuck in it.

Encryption - Why we need to use it!


Strong EncryptionWith the world going more digital every day, people need to have access to and use strong encryption to protect all their personal data from accidental or intentional loss or misuse. People store their banking information, health care information, and personal contacts on all types of media, from cell phones, laptops, to “cloud” storage such as Dropbox or Office 365, just to name a few. The need to secure this data is greater than most believe and more vulnerable than anyone wants to admit. With the ever growing hoard of data being stored on computers and mobile devices, the need to secure this data has become a cat and mouse game.

Cyber criminals are on the prowl to steal any personal information for financial gain while the governmen... show more

Compelled Password burden of proof

Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court is tackling an important issue. A little background: Generally government law enforcement can't compel a password or decryption unless it's a foregone conclusion that they're going to find what they're looking for. The problem that the court is facing is what is the burden of proof needed in order to consider a result a "foregone conclusion"? Generally, they're not allowed fishing expeditions in other people's laptops and phone, due to the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination... show more

Things we Need to Talk About: Risk


There's a bunch of people headed to other, often federated, self-hosted, or community-hosted platforms right now.

There are concerns with risks.

Threat model guidance, protections against external or insider abuse, useful user and admin capabilities, monitoring, organisations and lobby groups (EFF, EPIC, etc.), surveillance, state & non-state APTs (advanced persistent threats), institutional / personal lessons learned, would be hugely useful. Propaganda, disinformation, disruption, DDoS, network infiltration, and other attacks exist.

Any possible guidance, pointers, or resources would be tremendously appreciated.

There are those here, and in our circles, who've worked at, with, or for, site safety and security, moderation, administration, systems and network administration, business and legal operations, and more, in and around the social networking space, since it was called "Usenet" and "BBSes", or earli... show more

We are building a 100% open source, \#privacy respecting \#selfhosting platform for online, real time collaboration and productivity!

Bill "Telecommunications and Other Legislation Amendment (Assistance and Access) Bill 2018" is currently being reviewed by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS).

This bill would do the following:
- harm the digital security of our devices, software, networks and internet infrastructure;
- put the information security that individuals and organisations need at risk; and
- further diminish trust in Australia as a country that upholds digital security and human rights.

To make things worse, this bill lacks the accountability and transparency mechanisms that are needed to ensure that it doesn't get abused, notably lack of judicial oversight and extensive secrecy clauses.

In September, over 15000 submissions were written to the Department of Home Affairs, including from human rights advocates, technology companies and security experts. Less than one fortnight after the submission deadline, the government introduced the bill into Parliament with only minor alterations. It's like as though the government summarily ignored the 15... show more

Hello folks! Gibberfish was founded two years ago to bring private, decentralized services to people who need them. We provide private cloud servers to other nonprofits at no charge. We also run a bunch of free, anonymous, public services, including this pod. While we’re very happy to be doing this work, it’s expensive to maintain. Since we started, I and my fellow founders have poured thousands of our own dollars into the project. Unfortunately, this is not sustainable. So, here is our ask:

If you use our Diaspora* pod, our chat server, our anonymous search engine, or any of our other services, please reflect on their value to you and to the online community. If you feel that it’s worth $1 per month, please consider supporting us on an ongoing basis on Patreon.

If you’re already a Patreon user, it’s only... show more

Diaspora is a open source, distributed social network developed by programmers around the world. It operates on different "pods". Where each pod is a server that holds your data. And pods communicate with each other to form the Diaspora network. This design makes Diaspora resilient to #cyberattacks and enhances #privacy. And pod taken down by hackers or governments will only effect the users on the pod. Users on other pods are still safe.

Do note that although pods are interconnected. You can only login form the pod your account it on. Logging in from other pods will result in nothing besides error messages.
