Tales From The Dark Web

Just because they are behind bars doesn’t mean your safe from members of the Dark Web.

Our Take on This Week’s News

Record a cop, go to jail – Two Chicago residents who recorded their interactions with the police are facing felony charges… one is in jail… and their cases are drawing attention to an eavesdropping law that may be obsolete in the age of smart phones with audio and video recording capabilities.

Before we had Facebook, we had yearbooks – At the end of each year of high school, we’d write messages by hand, with a pen, never expecting anyone except the book’s owner (and a select few friends) would see them. Now classmates dot com is buying up old yearbooks, and scanning and posting the contents, including our most private heartfelt messages. Read this account of describing one man’s yearbooks, bought at an auction of the contents of his mother’s basement, and the various personal messages from girls during his high school years… including a lengthy breakup letter from a serious relationship during his senior year.

In a potential windfall to attorneys that sue businesses that send out spam –  California Appeals court has ruled that businesses can be held strictly liable for actions done by their affiliates (and sub-affiliates).

Trapster Hacked – If you own a smarphone, you might be using the free app Trapster. Trapster alerts you when you are driving near speed traps and traffic cams, and other law enforcement hazards. Attackers may have stolen email addresses, passwords, and other data.

January 28, 2011 is Data Privacy Day. Privacy Projects, is the official sponsor of  Data Privacy Day.  The goal is to put additional pressure on companies and to gain a better understanding that everyone’s privacy is at stake.
