The past two weeks wtnessed the two largest cyberattacks attacks in histroy. Thankfully, both were thwarted, but newer and bigger attacks are sure to follow.
In the world of social media, Facebook and Twitter are the twin Goliaths. They dominate the social media market. They also systematically censor posts and use manipulative tactics to influence the ways users think, interact with each other, and even vote in elections. But now, thanks to a love of free speech and the power of alt-tech, a new David has arrived on the scene to compete with those twin Goliaths. The new social media platform — ONEWAY — is prepared to become the platform for those who love free speech.
The far-left organization known as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), often described as an “anti-Christian hate group,” is working with YouTube to purge conservatives, Christians, libertarians, and others from the video streaming platform, according to news reports. A number of prominent media figures have already been banned, with others facing demonetization and warnings. Some accounts were restored amid a national outcry. But the new revelations about YouTube partnering with radical leftists and anti-Christian bigots come as Google, Facebook, Twitter and other Internet giants come under increasing fire for blatantly trying to silence right-of-center voices on their platforms. Lawsuits against the tech behemoths are underway, and calls for government regulation are growing louder.
Facebook tracks the activity of Internet users, even those who have no Facebook account, and is building secret files on the Internet activity of literally billions of Internet users.
VIDEO - In an interview with The New American magazine, legendary political operative Roger Stone expressed his belief that Democratic National Committee employee Seth Rich was murdered for political purposes — not as a robbery gone bad. In particular, Stone said it was “abundantly clear” that Rich was murdered for having blown the whistle on the DNC by leaking explosive documents to WikiLeaks. Even former DNC boss Donna Brazile — certainly no member of The John Birch Society, Stone said — expressed fear for her life after crossing the Clintons. Stone also said Julian Assange was a journalist and a “truth teller,” not a criminal. Ironically, he noted that liberals loved the WikiLeaks chief when he was exposing the Bush dynasty, but suddenly turned on him when leaks about the Clinton dynasty and Obama began emerging. The Supreme Court has ruled that media may publish information they receive, even if it's classified, and yet the establishment has gone to extremes trying to bring him down. Trump should pardon Assange to end the “idiocy,” Stone said.
Former and current Twitter employees are caught on camera admitting they censor political views they disagree with — without the censored users even realizing it.
Project Veritas is at it again — this time exposing Twitter as part of the “American Pravda” of fake news designed to manipulate the way people think by controlling their access to information and being “more than happy” to violate users’ trust to help the government.
Newly-minted FBI Director Christopher Wray seems to picking up right where his disgraced predecessor James Comey left off in the war against encryption, telling the attendees at the International Conference on Cyber Security on Tuesday that strong encryption is “an urgent public safety issue.”
A newly discovered flaw in the central processing units (CPUs) of computers, mobile devices, and cloud computing devices puts users at risk of hacking — regardless of their software or operating system (OS). And the flaw affects virtually every computer, mobile device, and cloud computing device created in the last 20 years.
Just one year after introducing its “fake news” red flags, Facebook has discontinued the tool after having to face the fact that it just didn’t work. In fact, many users were sharing articles tagged by the social media giant as a result of their being tagged. Facebook, it appears, is does not have the credibility it seems to have thought it had.
It's a common science fiction theme: the artificially intelligent machine that develops consciousness — without a conscience — and tries to wipe out humanity. According to some scientists, however, this fiction could become fact.
