  58.         <p>Researches with Googles Project Zero security team announced on Wednesday a major vulnerability affecting nearly all Symnatec snake-oil antivirus products. The kernel vulnerability requires no user action, which would allow attackers to corrupt system memory without requiring users to even open an email used to trigger the flaw.</p>
  59. <blockquote><p>These vulnerabilities are as bad as it gets. They don’t require any user interaction, they affect the default configuration, and the software runs at the highest privilege levels possible. In certain cases on Windows, vulnerable code is even loaded into the kernel, resulting in remote kernel memory corruption.</p></blockquote>
  60. <p>Symnatec indicated they were not aware of anyone actually exploiting the bug as of yet, and responded by making a new panacea that supposedly fixes the problem.</p>

These officers are not of Preet&#039;s District in Manhattan or even the United States. The officers allegedly conspired to smuggle cocaine between points that are not in the United States, though Preet assures the destination was the United States and not one of the other countries that likes cocaine too.<sup id="rf1-5961"><a href="#fn1-5961" title="This list consists of all of the countries. " rel="footnote">1</a></sup>Undercover officers fraudulently misrepresenting themselves as Mexican narcotics wholesalers offered the officers a million United States dollars in bribes to &#034;ensure the safe passage of tons of cocaine through the jungles of Honduras&#034; Bharara said. The officers allegedly operated the smuggling ring over a ten year period. Last month Fabio Porfirio Lobo, the son of a former Honduran president, plead guilty to some charges and introduced the accused officers to the fake merchants. Sorry for your laws Mister World Police.</p>

  138.         <p>A proposal from US Customs and Border Protection will ask visa applicants to reveal their social media identities, a move they claim will keep the country safer from terrorists. The announcement on thefederalregister.gov website stated &#034;It will be an optional data field to request social media identifiers to be used for vetting purposes, as well as applicant contact information. Collecting social media data will enhance the existing investigative process and provide DHS greater clarity and visibility to possible nefarious activity and connections by providing an additional tool set which analysts and investigators may use to better analyze and investigate the case.&#034; No mention was made on how the agency plans to verify the data found within the social media profiles, seeing as terrorists will likely just make fake profiles or be in possession of multiple identities.</p>

  190.         <p>From the Tor Project&#039;s own timeline on their hiring and post separation payments to &#034;former&#034; CIA agent David Chasteen. <a href="http://qntra.net/2014/11/this-onion-it-smells-inherent-hazards-of-the-tor-network/">Given the source</a>, information presented as facts in this timeline may not be in concordance with reality.

  192. Subject: David Chasteen Timeline<br />
  193. This is a timeline of events related to Tor&#039;s hiring of David Chasteen.<br />
  194. January 15th, 2011: David Chasteen attended a Tor hackday at MIT, while claiming to work for the State Department. There, he met Tor people including Jacob Appelbaum. Around this time, David Chasteen indicated he was interested in a job at Tor, but he was not hired.<br />
  195. October 5th, 2014: <strong>Roger Dingledine suggested adding David Chasteen to the tor-internal private mailing list and possibly hiring him as a project manager</strong>.<br />
  196. October 8th, 2014: Based on her previous experiences working with him, <strong>Karen Reilly sent an email to tor-internal advocating for David Chasteen to be hired as a project manager</strong>.<br />
  197. October 14th, 2014: David Chasteen was added to tor-internal.<br />
  198. November 5th and 6th, 2014: Operation Onymous<br />
  199. November 6th, 2014: <strong>David Chasteen&#039;s last day at the CIA after working there for 8 years</strong>.<br />
  200. November 7th, 2014: David Chasteen&#039;s first day working for Tor as a project manager. Along with Karen Reilly, he attended Freedom of the Press Foundation&#039;s Digital Security Conference in Washington DC. At the conference, he met with Xeni Jardin about writing a guest post on Boingboing about Tor hiring him. On this same day, <strong>David Chasteen disclosed to Roger Dingledine that he worked for the CIA</strong>.<br />
  201. November 9th, 2014: In the wake of media concerns stemming from Operation Onymous, Jacob Appelbaum sent an email to tor-internal calling for a more coordinated media strategy. In this, he asked if anyone paid by Tor has a clearance.<br />
  202. November 10th, 2014 13:30 EST: <strong>David Chasteen responded saying that he had a clearance</strong>, but it is no longer active. <strong>He further stated that, because all Foreign Service Officers and military officers have clearance, having a policy against hiring anyone with a clearance would be discrimination against veterans</strong>.<br />

  236.         <p>Today <a href="http://trilema.com/2014/no-you-dont-have-something-to-say-on-the-topic/">Tim Swanson (WOT:nonperson)</a> published yet another piece illustrating his fundamental misunderstanding of markets and the world writ large. In <a href="https://archive.is/31UDv">this latest piece</a> Swanson supposes that a &#034;Kimberly Process&#034; might be possible for cryptocurrencies. <sup id="rf1-5951"><a href="#fn1-5951" title="Swanson of course uses the term plural, this manner supposes a class of many cryptocurrency of which Bitcoin is but one member. To the contrary cryptocurrency is Bitcoin. " rel="footnote">1</a></sup> The Kimberly Process is a sort of <a href="http://trilema.com/time-for-europe-to-repeal-the-us-backed-aml-crap">anti-money laundering process</a> applied to the market for gem diamonds. Through the Kimberly Process &#034;bad guys&#034; can&#039;t sell potential gem diamonds<sup id="rf2-5951"><a href="#fn2-5951" title="As opposed to industrial diamonds which are an actual commodity. " rel="footnote">2</a></sup> to &#034;good guys&#034; and the scheme appears to work for this purpose so long as no one cares to observe all the ways it doesn&#039;t.</p>
  237. <p>The actual thing it does work for is slowing the flow of gem diamonds to the jewelry market avoiding the corn grower&#039;s problem and increasing the price of individual diamonds and profit margins for the De Beers family of Companies.<sup id="rf3-5951"><a href="#fn3-5951" title="The De Beers cartel ended up falling from prominence around the time the Kimberly Process went into effect anyway because other people caught onto the part where gem capable diamonds aren&rsquo;t as common as De Beers cultivated illusions of their being. " rel="footnote">3</a></sup></p>
  238. <p>Swanson&#039;s argument depends upon Bitcoin being some broken thing like gem diamonds when instead there&#039;s an actual market. Sorry for your laws.</p>

  264.         <p>Hacking group OurMine, the group responsible <a href="http://qntra.net/2016/06/zucks-social-media-accounts-fucked/">for breaking into Mark Zuckerberg&#039;s Twitter account</a> has claimed another victim. Google CEO Sundar Pichai had his account on Quora taken over by the hackers on Sunday, who then used the account to auto post a tweet saying &#034;We are just testing your security&#034;. The messages and tweets were removed by Monday morning, and no statement from Google or Mr. Pichai was available. OurMine has said it will continue to hack the accounts of tech executives and celebrities, and made good on their promise by also hacking the bit.ly account of Amazon CTO Werner Vogels. OurMine claims to have made $18,400 selling it&#039;s web and social-media account security services.</p>
