spies and watchmen

A new publication by Wikileaks shows how new technologies massive spying all possible barriers violate the right to privacy. It is the publication of 200 documents about eighty private industry companies espionage and show that the new technologies allow real time spy communications of millions of people. Hidden Programs (or “passive”, in the jargon) that instantly reconstruct conversations from Facebook, MSN or WhatsApp, without the knowledge neither the user nor the provider. Software that allows not only intercept and record a conversation but at the same time to identify who is speaking and from where. Trojans that infect computers and steal their secret communications encryption keys. Everything you do with the phone, internet, or satellite phone handy, or all communications. Everything can be intercepted and somewhere in the world, is being intercepted. Not even sparing the conversation face to face, because the market today offer powerful headphones to listen to anyone anywhere. So click selling satellite equipment.

The documents, which were analyzed in a joint investigation by Wikileaks and nineteen newspapers of the world, show that there is no defense against massive spying technologies available in the market. It is also an industry virtually unchecked opaque, offering everything from missiles to cell phones for special forces in hazardous areas, with panic buttons connected to a GPS, and sensors to detect and send a signal if the user’s phone is dead. As a private industry has not state control and unquoted no public control of big business, but practically their only customers are governments and large enterprises and Internet telephony.

Among the most important documents is a contract to install the program FinFly telephone from the former Soviet republic of Turkmenistan. The program allows infecting computers with a Trojan that is lowered each time a user accepts an update from iTunes, Winamp, Open Office or similar programs. Inclusive offers trout updates available to the user lowers thinking companies are recognized when they are actually sent by FinFly undetectable Trojans. The documents show that the company would Dreamlab FinFly server installed in Oman.

The “Files of spies” have three parts. The first contains brochures of products offered by various companies. The second shows any contracts and confidentiality agreements. The third is the list of countries visited primarily responsible for these companies in recent years through a track that would have made ​​of her cell phone. This file shows that South America is by far the least visited region by these specialists. Just recorded a visit to Brazil by three experts in June to participate in a training seminar IPP company, which was made to train security forces in the region in intelligence techniques. The IPP website shows that the next seminar in Brazil will be in November 2015. Another country, Chile, is mentioned in part two of the files. It is in an agreement signed between the companies Dreamlab and Gamma, written in German, which identifies Chile as well as Switzerland, Bulgaria and Hungary as Dreamlab customers. In other words, under the contract, Chile client would the company that installed the computer program FinFly infection in Turkmenistan and Oman servers.

The satellite tracking of entrepreneur spying industry also show occasional visits to Mexico, which is also mentioned in a brochure of Thales, who explained how he had installed a communications center with 750 police in Mexico City , a kind of police call center for emergency calls.

Worth mentioning that none of these companies, you know, illegal acts. In many countries like Argentina there are no laws against the sale of these tools, but against its use, since the law of 2010 computer security worth the “penetration” of computers, and only the Intelligence Secretariat is authorized to tap phones. But both telephone companies as large ISPs should buy some of these programs to comply with court orders. However, these spy equipment far beyond what any judge can order, at least in Argentina, because one thing is to order the closure of a site or removal of a photo intrusive, another thing is sort of chats espionage or emails.

Here are some of the bells and whistles that appear in brochures business intelligence:

– VasTech : Monitoring massive satellite phone . Discover the communication protocol and analyzes the extracted information. Mobile phone networks and Internet : monitoring massive network data storage , voice recognition , traffic data processing . With the Zebra program can take voice , SMS , MMS , email and fax. You can store ” thousands” of terabytes of information ( A tera thousand gygas ) . You can listen to a hundred thousand conversations simultaneously , or capture interceptions billion per day.

  • Cassidian : missiles and anti-aircraft systems . Sensors and radars. Detection equipment nuclear explosives and chemical weapons . More than 25,000 employees worldwide in 700 projects in 80 countries for over 400 clients .
  • Hidden Technology : All kinds of gadgets and gizmos connected with GPS signals , including devices with magnets to stick them under cars .
  • Glimmerglass , Netoptic , NetQuest : Fiber Optic Technology . You can intercept the submarine fiber optic pipes that take and bring communications from one continent to another to intercept communications of entire countries from outside of these countries , but countries ‘ knowledge. For example, Gmail Hotmail or Skype servers are out of Argentina , come and go through these pipes fiber optic and can be intercepted.
  • Cobham : Intercept tactics. As a person is moving , it changes cell antenna which receives the signal. This program allows you to jump from antenna to antenna with the puncture.
  • Scantarget : Analyze real- time web . Search on SMS , Twitter , Facebook , blog , chat forums , etc. . key words to know if anyone is planning a terrorist attack.
  • Ipoque : massive interception and network monitoring . Detects encrypted protocols such as Skype , BitTorrent , SSLand and VPN tunnels . You can search the web up to 25,000 keywords simultaneously.
  • Qosmos : Software that intercepts 550 000 gygabits in real time. All communications of a city like Lauquen Dam fit in 200 gygabits . It also allows more than one thousand enforce “rules” or instructions simultaneously.
  • Silicom : Give a ” redirector ” that acts as a triple plug to redirect electricity to more than one place. In this case you can redirect millions of data to another country or a spy agency without the user or the provider of value added services to find out, using the technique ” man in the middle ” (man in the middle) , which in this case would be duplicated and redirects interceptor communication. 
  • Autonomy Virage : Cameras and face recognition .
  • CRFS : radiofrequencias monitoring . Radios detection trout. Intercept radio communications.
  • Berkeley electronics: microphones detects interference on cellular communications .

War of Internet: the old economy

Bag Of Money By: OCAL
Bag Of Money By: OCAL
Bag Of Money By: OCAL

The combination of Piracy-# STOPSOPA-Taringa!-CUEVANA-Megaupload-Anonymous-FBI hiding something even more difficult to read fluently. a war of the worlds that has exploded this year and that Argentina is not safe.

Would be: a civilization with its rules minted, centuries and centuries, for better or for worse, poses a threat to a young “virtual world” that expresses a monstrous influence in today’s global society.

After living together nearly three decades of more or less in symbiotic harmony between the two areas, now appear to have broken.

The virtual world, expanding over the Internet, with its impressive gains amassed in a context of freedom without absolute rules, with movable paradigms and without limitation, marked the course of this century. Perhaps in ancient times, the traditional world was like. Someone invented an ax and the rest said “like” one day a person set the fire and everyone started to “follow”.

The traditional world, however, is less attractive today. Strict and without adventure. Shows signs of obsolescence in their structures, social and economic dilemmas depletion and poverty, at first glance, are unsolvable.

But attention, is still “real”, “old”, “father”. And as such, may have decided that now is the time to put things in place.

The pattern of money

The pattern value both worlds share is the “money”. This is perhaps the weakest point of the utopia of a “free Internet”. It happens that money is one of the oldest and most births loved by the traditional world. And, apparently, is not willing to take out ending it without a fight. Maybe when the virtual world, which some interpret as “new” –  achieve coining its own “currency value” can change the power relationship.

Meanwhile, the expected independence of the virtual world is like child’s play to which he celebrates and supports. Provided that there is a place without profaning: the rules to make money.

Apparently, this war is not so much a matter of philosophy, as some interpret, but specific elements such as land, water and fire. The fourth element is called money ..

War of the Tech Worlds

Android Vs iPhone
Facebook Vs Google Plus
Chromebook Vs iPad2
Firefox Vs Chrome
iCloud Vs Google Apps Vs other Cloud providers

Now, isn’t there supposed to be a company called Microsoft in this list?

In the other news, Microsoft moved its Office suite into cloud and calls it Office 365, a move which its own employees fear will reduce the profit of the company. And it’s trying to catch up in a long lost race by developing Mango for Windows phones. I doubt if it would ever come in the league of Android and iPhone. Moreover, Mango is said to have a great new feature, searching using voice, which has been in Android for the past one year. So atleast the first release of Mango will only be an inclusion of the features that are forming the trend in today’s market. The only other news involving Microsoft recently is some lawsuits involving patents and copyright infringements. I don’t know if Microsoft is running out of options or something but someone needs to tell them that their dominance in Operating Systems might soon be tested. But as we know, they have ruled the market for decades and it is only a matter of time and thought before they bounce back into business.

Talk about Google, you can say they are doing one thing very consistently- innovation. It’s as if they can read through people’s minds. They touch the right areas and it reflects back in the areas they want. They promote young developers more than any other tech giant has. They make the best use of open source and encourage the developers to code using their API. This is one of the important reasons why Android soared to the peak within a year of its release, with the number of apps all set to overtake the number of apps for iPhone, it’s arch rival. Google is all about creativity and innovation. If I ever were given an opportunity to choose where I want to work among the tech giants, I’d choose Google.

While Google excels in creativity, Apple simply does one thing- trendsetting. People were mad about iPod when it was first released, and soon other companies tried to compete with it and failed. And then we had the iPhone. Apple was one of the first companies to invest much in phones, knowing how much they mean to people. The iPad threw away the conventional keyboard and mouse. I heard that someone in US sold his kidney to buy an iPad2. Only then I realized how crazy people are about Apple products. With promising improvements in iPhone 5, Apple’s future seems very bright. I loved the way how this giant resurrected itself after being crushed by Microsoft.

Recently I came across a funny picture. In it, on one side there is a picture of Julian Assange who seems to say “I bring out private information of organisations, people and government. And I’m being called the villain”. On the other side is a picture of Mark Zuckerberg who seems to say “I sell the private information of organisations, people and government. And I’m the man of the year”. Funny but true though. The “accidental billionaire” now is worth more than Google’s founders. Facebook influenced everyone and in India, it simply murdered Google’s initiative “Orkut”. Statistics say that in recent months people browse through Facebook’s pages more than Google’s pages. More time is spent on Facebook than the time spent on all the Google products put together. Such is the power of the world’s largest social network. With APIs to help developers develop applications and the “like” button literally everywhere on the internet,  it seems that “Google Plus” would not take long to overcome Facebook. It has all the aces.

These giants seem to march in their own paths, the paths that often intersect one another. And since new products and features roll out like everyday, the challenge for today’s developers would be to choose which one to choose and focus to develop their skills. And the time has come for everyone to know about this industry, which has influenced the lives of everybody.

Where IE8 and Firefox 3.5 Are Similar

Let’s take a look at some of the features that they each have.

Obviously they both possess a multiple-tab capability. Personally, I like that IE has a tab waiting for you to click to open. Google Chrome has that as well. Firefox now has a little plus sign to allow the same functionality — a small but important improvement I’ve been waiting for.

IE8 has a feature called InPrivate Browsing, which prevents IE from storing data about your browsing sessions, including cookies, temporary Internet files, history, and other data. I’ve used this mode at conferences while on kiosk machines, and it adds to my comfort level, even though I still cannot help but delete browsing history whenever I access a public machine. Likewise, Firefox 3 has Private Browsing, which provides the same functionality and does not retain visited pages, form and search bar entries, passwords, cookies, temporary or cached Internet files, and so forth.

They both offer at least one superscary privacy-invasion tool. In the case of IE8, it is called Suggested Sites, where your browsing history is sent to Microsoft to compare to related Web sites; then a link in your Favorites Bar offers “suggestions” to help you find new items. This feature is something that many (most) people are not pleased about. Microsoft said it will not store this information, but at the same time, Windows Help and Support information says that even items deleted from your browsing History “will be retained by Microsoft for a period of time to help improve our products and services.” In Firefox, there is Location Aware Browsing (aka geolocation), where Firefox takes your IP address, information about nearby wireless access points, and a temporary cookie-like identifier and passes that off to Google (through an encrypted SSL connection, if that makes you feel any better) so that searching in Google retrieves results that relate to your current location. If you are searching for pizza, there’s no need to type in all the information about where you are. That’s something else I opt out of.

What IE8 Has That’s Cool

In addition to their common items, IE8 has some cool features to make browsing and working smoother. These include:

Accelerators, which let you do in one (or a few) clicks what it used to take you more clicks, often with cutting and pasting and so forth, to accomplish various tasks. The accelerator tasks include mapping locations and translation of words. You select the text you need and then see a little blue accelerator icon that you can click to obtain directions, a definition, or a translation; to e-mail content; or to search, all with a click or two — sort of like a contextul menu.

Web slices, aka automatic feed updates. If these are turned on, IE8 periodically checks online for updates to specific feeds, much in the same way you might check for RSS feeds for blog posts. IE8 doesn’t have to be running for these online checks to occur. A great example would be to monitor the status of a bid at eBay without having an eBay browser window always up. Slices display in your Favorites Bar, and when the item has changed, its text becomes bold.

The new SmartScreen Filter (an enhancement to the Phishing Filter) and Compatibility Views, as well as cool features that combine only when working with Windows 7, like Jump Lists and Windows Touch.

What Firefox 3.5 Promises

Firefox 3.5 beta 4 touts increased performance and stability with the new TraceMonkey JavaScript engine (where Firefox needs to outdo Chrome and Safari), support for native JSON and Web worker threads, and new Web technologies like HTML5 video and audio features, all of which have developers’ mouths watering. I’m confident Firefox will be a solid contender to continue challenging Internet Explorer in the browser wars.

What Makes a Browser “Enterprise-Ready”?

One important feature for enterprises is multiple language availability. Firefox currently boasts 70 languages. IE8 currently supports 43, with 20 more coming in the near future.

Another key attribute is controllability by administrators: IE8 uses Microsoft’s well-entrenched group policies, a plus. However, for Firefox, there are other ways (some of them free, like FrontMotion’s Firefox Community Edition) to enforce settings across your organization through ActiveDirectory using administrative templates — similar to locking down settings with mozilla.cfg on one computer. You might also consider FirefoxADM from Sourceforge.net or PolicyPak for Firefox and other Group Policy configuration tools.

Microsoft categorizes browsers as having either Level 1 or Level 2 support for its SharePoint server. Microsoft recommended Level 1 browsers, which were only its own browsers (IE6 and IE7). Level 2 support permitted only basic functionality and encompassed competing browsers such as Firefox 1.5 and Safari 2.0. But that’s changing. SP2 for the Microsoft Office 2007 System, which shipped yesterday, provides official support for both IE8 and Firefox 3.0 browsers. With SharePoint becoming a larger staple in intranets of late, this broader support is a plus for those holding back on Firefox deployments due to SharePoint. (Similarly, Exchange 2010 Outlook Web Access also offers broader browser support for the full OWA experience, as opposed to the OWA Lite that Firefox users encountered in the past.)

In life, it may come down to what you know and like. But in the business world, it might come down to what is easiest. With IE8 being a part of Windows 7, it may simply be the de facto enterprise browser because it is what people know and what administrators can count on being included and controllable without any further effort on their part. Then again, Firefox is not all that difficult to deploy and manage these days, and it is well liked.

What will you deploy in your organization? Are IE8’s features compelling to retain it as the desktop browser in your enterprise, or are you ready to enter Firefox into your deployment app list?

Firefox Extension for Tweak Network Settings

So if this extension improves your web browsing, why aren’t these network settings improved by default in Firefox? This is because Firefox wants to adhere to the HTTP specification which says: “A single-user client SHOULD NOT maintain more than 2 connections with any server or proxy.” Unfortunately, the specification (from 1999) is outdated at this point.

First, there is a need from the user: an ordinary webpage contains several images, style sheets, JavaScript files etcetera. Also, most users have broadband and PC’s which can handle lot of simultaneous connections easily. More simultaneous connections means generally faster loading of webpages. Just like a highway with more lanes allows more traffic.

Second, on the server side it doesn’t matter. Even the most lightweight webserver can handle hundreds of simultaneous connections. On a high-traffic webserver, your visit is just noise to the server. On a low-traffic webserver, it’s only easier to handle your request: the server isn’t doing anything else anyway.

Microsoft also thinks two connections is not enough: Internet Explorer 8 supports six simultaneous connections (see IE8 for developers).

So, should your browser adhere to an old specification written in stone or should your browser comply with a changed world? You decide.

Kris Mainieri made a video about how to speed up Firefox with Tweak Network.
