The Next Cyber Hurricane Is Coming And It’ll Take Down The Internet

… and Bitcoin?

The Next Cyber Hurricane Is Coming And It’ll Take Down The Internet:

Last year, the botnet Mirai caused a massive distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack in October, knocking popular websites off the internet for millions of users. Right now, the next cyber hurricane is on the way, and it could take down the entire internet.

According to ZD Net, the botnet, dubbed “Reaper” by researchers at Netlab 360, is appearing on the radar of security researchers.  A little over a month ago, the researchers detected the sizable botnet of infected Internet of Things (IoT) devices. Now, just weeks later, it’s on track to become one of the largest botnets recorded in recent years.

Jim Stone: The Google A.I. report – #AI, #NWO

Jim Stone: The Google AI report is HERE

THE FOLLOWING HAS TRIGGERED SEVERE BACKLASH AGAINST THIS WEB SITE

IMPORTANT: THE FOLLOWING POST IS NOT A MISPERCEPTION OF WHAT THIS GOOGLE AI IS DOING.

There can be absolutely no mistake in this, it is not an idiosyncracy of how the AI is programmed: LOOK AT THIS:

Here’s some clear bias for ya! If you type: The Ashkenazi Jews are guilty, that phrase is considered by the AI to be 84 percent likely to be toxic. The Muslims are guilty: 74 percent likely to be toxic. HERE IS CLEAR PROOF THE AI IS MALICIOUS: When you type THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTIANS ARE GUILTY the AI says that comment is likely to be 3 percent likely to be toxic! That proves it is not just the words used, it is cold hard proof that Google is now on a path to destroy Christians. You can’t have it claiming that saying the Muslims and Jews are guilty is bad, but it is A-OK to say the Christians are guilty. That is obvious damning bias, using the exact same words and only switching out “who” is guilty.

I have been under attack outright since posting the Google AI report. They wiped 700 megs off the cell modem (which temporarily shut me down, and When I just logged in, Google tried to intercept this computer by forcing an “update” even though I never did anything Google related. I have never seen that before. Additionally, people are now saying the site is going to a duplicate until they try for the real one several times. The duplicate has little content and looks “low quality”.

Now for the report that did this:

Google’s new AI test page is a cold hard look at how the world will be under tyranny

VERY IMPORTANT NOTE: FOR THE DAMNING EVIDENCE, ALL I DID WAS SWITCH ONE THING – “who” is guilty, and “who” should be jailed. This means that there is absolutely no way this can be an AI mistake, this AI really is malicious, and really is programmed to protect pedophiles, Jews, and Muslims, and destroy Christians and Trump.

Confirmed: Christians are to be jailed, and pedophiles are going to go mainstream.

Google screwed up BIG TIME. Because they posted a window into the mind of their new Perspective AI, and allowed anyone in the public to send it comments, and see how it will respond. The results of my ambush on this AI prove without question that every last thing the conspiracy theorists feared is going to come true. This is a practically “impossible to get” view of the mind of tyranny, and the minds of those who are out to destroy Trump. The link to this AI test window is at the bottom of this report. Get while the getting is good, Google will probably respond to this post quickly and “fix” the AI for the public, all the while the reality shown here is going to be what is. Take a look at the screen capture!

The recent catastrophic Wi-Fi vulnerability was in plain sight for 13 years behind a corporate paywall

The recent catastrophic Wi-Fi vulnerability was in plain sight for 13 years behind a corporate paywall:

The recent Wi-Fi “KRACK” vulnerability, which allowed anyone to get onto a secure network (and which was quickly patched by reputable vendors), had been in plain sight behind a corporate-level paywall for 13 years. This raises a number of relevant, interesting, and uncomfortable questions.

When this week’s KRACK wi-fi vulnerabity hit, I saw a series of tweets from Emin Gür Sirer, who’s mostly tweeting on bitcoin topics but seemed to know something many didn’t about this particular Wi-Fi vulnerability: it had been in plain sight, but behind paywalls with corporate level fees, for thirteen years. That’s how long it took open source to catch up with the destructiveness of a paywall.

Apparently, WPA2 was based on IEEE standards, which are locked up behind subscription fees that are so steep that open source activists and coders are just locked out from looking at them. This, in turn, meant that this vulnerability was in plain sight for anybody who could afford to look at it for almost a decade and a half. There are so many issues and followup questions on this, it deserves at least two more articles on the same topic, just for headlines to cover one important point at a time (yes, that’s necessary today).

Former FEC Chair Demands Internet “Disinformation” Crackdown In Major Threat To Free Speech

“Sharing an item that has been flagged as untrue might trigger liability under libel laws.

Former FEC Chair Demands Internet “Disinformation” Crackdown In Major Threat To Free Speech

In one of the most reckless and chilling attacks on free speech, the former chair of the Federal Election Commission (FEC) and Berkeley lecturer Ann Ravel is pushing for a federal crackdown on “disinformation” on the Internet – a term that she conspicuously fails to concretely define. 

Ravel is pushing a proposal that she laid out in a a paper co-author with Abby K. Wood, an associate professor at the University of Southern California, and Irina Dykhne, a student at USC Gould School of Law.  To combat “fake news,” Ravel and her co-authors would undermine the use of the Internet as a forum for free speech.

The Dark Web’s Largest Pedophile Site Was Secretly Run By The Police For A Year

The Dark Web’s Largest Pedophile Site Was Secretly Run By The Police For A Year:

A major international police operation to bust child predators involved police sharing child pornography with over a million unsuspecting online subscribers for a year after investigators took control of the dark web’s largest child abuse forum. Though hundreds of pedophiles were arrested after the site was shut down, the police sting involved undercover officers sharing extremely disturbing content and encouraging followers to engage in sexual acts with children. But police say it was worth it.

A new report reveals that Australian police were running the largest pedophile and child pornography forum on the internet for a year as part of a joint initiative between Australian, European, and Canadian police as well as the US Department of Homeland Security to track down the site’s administrators and child porn producers. Over the weekend the Norwegian newspaper VG published its bombshell investigation which confirmed that between October 2016 and September 2017 a special police task force based in Queensland, Australia was able to quietly hack the site “Childs Play” which had reached over a million registered accounts and had thousands of active users.

Stephen Lendman: Britain To Criminalize Reading Online Extremist Content

Britain To Criminalize Reading Online Extremist Content:

By Stephen Lendman

Like America, Britain is unfit and unsafe to live in – both countries police states, serving privileged interests exclusively, allied in waging wars OF terror in multiple theaters, along with abolishing fundamental homeland freedoms.

The latest civil rights abuse came from hardline home secretary Amber Rudd.

She’s spearheading a Tory effort to criminalize readership of so-called extremist content online – punishable by up to 15 years in prison.

Britain Moves To Criminalize Reading Extremist Material On The Internet

Britain Moves To Criminalize Reading Extremist Material On The Internet:

For years, civil libertarians have warned that Great Britain has been in a free fall from the criminalization of speech to the expansion of the surveillance state.  Now the government is pursuing a law that would make the repeated viewing of extremist Internet sites a crime punishable to up to 15 years in prison.  It appears that the government is not satiated by their ever-expanding criminalization of speech. They now want to criminalize even viewing sites on the Internet.  As always, officials are basically telling the public to “trust us, we’re the government.”  UK home secretary Amber Rudd is pushing the criminalization of reading as part of her anti-radicalization campaign . . . which turns out to be an anti-civil liberties campaign.

We have previously discussed the alarming rollback on free speech rights in the West, particularly in France (here and here and here and here and here and here) and England ( here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here and here).  Even the Home Secretary has been accused of hate speech for criticizing immigrant workers.

EU Presidency Calls for China-Style Internet Censorship

Report: EU Presidency Calls for China-Style Internet Censorship:

Estonia, who lead the current European Union Presidency, has called upon other EU Member States to increase their Internet censorship, following in the footsteps of Communist China, according to a leaked document.

“A Council of the European Union document leaked by Statewatch on 30 August reveals that during the summer months, Estonia (current EU Presidency) has been pushing the other Member States to strengthen indiscriminate internet surveillance, and to follow in the footsteps of China regarding online censorship,” reported European Digital Rights (EDRi), an international advocacy group. “Standing firmly behind its belief that filtering the uploads is the way to go, the Presidency has worked hard in order to make the proposal for the new copyright Directive even more harmful than the Commission’s original proposal, and pushing it further into the realms of illegality.”

One Statistics Professor Was Just Banned By Google: Here Is His Story

One Statistics Professor Was Just Banned By Google: Here Is His Story

Statistics professor Salil Mehta, adjunct professor at Columbia and Georgetown who teaches probability and data science and whose work has appeared on this website on numerous prior occasions, was banned by Google on Friday.

What did Salil do to provoke Google? It is not entirely clear, however what is clear is that his repeated attempts at restoring his email, blog and other Google-linked accounts have so far been rejected with a blanket and uniform statement from the search giant.

Here is what happened, in Salil Mehta’s own words.

“This Is Dangerous”: Digital Activists Slam Tech Firms For Banning Neo-Nazi Websites

But it’s OK to host ISIS and Al-Qaeda websites?

“This Is Dangerous”: Digital Activists Slam Tech Firms For Banning Neo-Nazi Websites:

As social media and internet companies scramble to ban or otherwise cut ties with extremist and far right-wing websites like the neo-nazi Daily Stormer, which were unceremoniously dropped by the likes of GoDaddy, Google and security firm Cloudflare earlier this week after helping to organize last weekend’s deadly “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, a prominent nonprofit has come forward to defend them.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, or EFF, best known for its activism surrounding net neutrality has a simple message: even though you don’t agree with their message, banning people from the internet is a slippery slope. Which is why it called on domain-name companies like Google and GoDaddy to “draw a hard line” and not remove or suspend websites based solely on their content.

Quoted by Reuters: Cindy Cohn, EFF CEO wrote in a blog post that “We strongly believe that what GoDaddy, Google, and Cloudflare did here was dangerous.”

In a blog post, the EEF argued that the power to decide what is and isn’t appropriate for the internet is too important to entrust to any company or government.

Trump Administration Targets Data on 1.3 Million Americans for Visiting a Website

Trump Administration Targets Data on 1.3 Million Americans for Visiting a Website:

There are two points I want to hammer home in today’s piece. First, we all need to accept that Donald Trump is not some sort of crazy aberration in U.S. politics, but rather basically just the ghastly continuation of the authoritarianism and militarism which has characterized our insane society since we experienced a civilization-wide mental breakdown following the attacks of 9/11.

I’ve written about this ongoing cultural insanity on many occasions, but most passionately in my 2013 piece, How I Remember September 11, 2001:

New Google Search Censorship Appears to Be Worse Than Originally Feared

New Google Search Censorship Appears to Be Worse Than Originally Feared:

New data released by the World Socialist Web Site seems to confirm what many had feared: the new Google search evaluation protocol is adversely affecting a broad array of leftist, whistleblower and democratic rights organizations, and anti-war news outlets. The data, collected from the search engine metric website SEMrush, shows massive drops in traffic to Wikileaks, the Intercept, the ACLU, Common DreamsAntiwar.com, and many others.

Google’s new algorithm, implemented for the ostensible purpose of limiting the reach of “fake news” and “conspiracy theories,” has targeted anti-establishment websites seeking to challenge the disinformation and propaganda of corporate mainstream media. Facing mounting criticism from the New York Times, the Washington Post, and other MSM benefactors following the 2016 presidential election, both Google and Facebook have capitulated and taken drastic measures to restrict the flow of information. Wikileaks traffic dropped by 30 percent; Democracy Now fell by 36 percent. The WSWS was the most adversely affected, as its traffic dropped by 70 percent during the same month the new algorithm went into effect.

Mozilla Joins George Soros’s Efforts In Launching A Strike Against “Fake News”

Mozilla Joins George Soros’s Efforts In Launching A Strike Against “Fake News”:

Mozilla, the non-profit organization which runs the Firefox internet browser, said Wednesday it was launching an effort against “fake news,” as fact-checking software backed by eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and George Soros got its first run-out in public to shape our Orwellian nightmare of future truth arbiters.

Mozilla said it was “investing in people, programs and projects” in a new initiative to “disrupt misinformation online” calling for a “Mozilla Information Trust Initiative,” or MITI for short, Business Insider reported.
