The NSA says it touches only 1.6% of daily internet traffic | Jeff Jarvis | Comment is free |
"Fear not, says the NSA, we "touch" only 1.6% of daily internet traffic. If, as they say, the net carries 1,826 petabytes of information per day, then the NSA "touches" about 29 petabytes a day. They don't say what "touch" means. Ingest? Store? Analyze? For context, Google in 2010 said it had indexed only 0.004% of the data on the net. So, by inference from the percentages, does that mean that the NSA is equal to 400 Googles? Seven petabytes of photos are added to Facebook each month. That's .23 petabytes per day. So that means the NSA is 126 Facebooks." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet
Are Hackers the Next Bogeyman Used to Scare Americans Into Giving Up More Rights? | Alternet -
"That's just a tiny bit overwrought for an allegedly serious expert, don't you think? In fact, it sounds like the kind of thing we heard from various members of the Bush administration during the early days after 9/11. And it certainly indicates, as Wheeler has been speculating, that the government is stretching the terrorism laws to include hacking. They certainly are using the same histrionic language to describe it." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet
Google confirms critical Android crypto flaw used in $5,700 Bitcoin heist - Dan Goodin (Ars Technica) -
Google confirms critical Android crypto flaw used in $5,700 Bitcoin heist - Dan Goodin (Ars Technica)
"Google developers have confirmed a cryptographic vulnerability in the Android operating system that researchers say could generate serious security glitches on hundreds of thousands of end user apps, many of them used to make Bitcoin transactions. This weakness in Android's Java Cryptography Architecture is the root cause of a Bitcoin transaction that reportedly was exploited to pilfer about $5,720 worth of bitcoins out of a digital wallet last week. The disclosure, included in a blog post published Wednesday by Google security engineer Alex Klyubin, was the first official confirmation of the Android vulnerability since Ars and others reported the incident last weekend. Klyubin warned that other apps might also be compromised unless developers change the way they access so-called PRNGs, short for pseudo random number generators." - Miguel Caetano from Bookmarklet
