Starting in February, the country’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology will use default passwords and password dictionaries and randomly try to infiltrate 200 million devices in homes across Japan, starting with routers and webcams, before moving on to other smart home “internet of things” devices.

Owners of devices that are successfully breached will be informed they were hacked and urged to change their passwords to something more secure. The hacking program is an initiative aimed at increasing cybersecurity in Japan before the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo next year.

Here's What Amazon's Eero Acquisition Means

Sun Feb 17 10:35:41 2019 - Amazon Espionnage

Amazon wants to fill your home with its products. The company sells a voice-activated smart speaker that can tell you the weather (Echo), a security camera that can show you who’s stealing your packages (Ring), and a media streamer that can play films and shows on your television (Fire TV). It also sells dozens of other devices — plugs, thermostats, lights, vacuums, even microwaves — with its chatty voice assistant Alexa stuffed inside. Now, Amazon is looking to own your smart home’s foundation, too: the router.Routers can capture telling information. A router knows the number and brands of the internet-connected devices you have at home, and when you’re at home using those devices. A 2017 Eero report with anonymized data collected from “hundreds of thousands” of its routers shows a glimpse into what information can be gleaned: Charts showing times of day users are most active (Sunday between 9 p.m. and 10 p.m.), and a list of the top 40 devices connected to Eero networks (topped by the iPhone, iPad, and Sonos speakers). If you have more than three Eeros, the company can deduce that you have a big house, too.

Dans les pas de Microsoft, Google, Facebook, Amazon et Apple se sont implantés dans l'écosystème bruxellois. Leur influence passe par de multiples réseaux : équipes de lobbyistes accréditées, fédérations, think tanks, cabinets d'avocat, consultants... En plus du lobbying classique, ils s'adonnent aussi à des pratiques peu orthodoxes comme l'astroturfing ou le harcèlement des députés européens.

This is a story of how, over six weeks, I cut them out of my own life and tried to prevent them from knowing about me or monetizing me in any way—not just by putting my iPhone in a drawer for a week or only buying local, but by really, truly blocking these companies from accessing me and vice versa. I wanted to find out how hard it would be—or if I could even do it—given that these tech giants dominate the internet in so many invisible ways that it’s hard to even know them all.

It’s not just logging off of Facebook; it’s logging off the countless websites that use Facebook to log in. It’s not just using DuckDuckGo instead of Google search; it’s abandoning my email, switching browsers, giving up a smartphone, and living life without mapping apps. It’s not just refusing to buy toilet paper on Amazon.com; it’s being blocked from reading giant swaths of the internet that are hosted on Amazon servers, giving up websites and apps that I didn’t previously know were connected to the biggest internet giant of them all.

Amazon's Defense of Rekognition Undermined by Police Client

Wed Feb 6 18:54:47 2019 - Amazon ViePrivee Espionnage

Faced with two independent studies that found its facial recognition software returns inaccurate or biased results, Amazon has repeatedly claimed that the researchers failed to use the software, called Rekognition, in the way the company has instructed police to use it.

However, the only law enforcement agency Amazon has acknowledged as a client says it also does not use Rekognition in the way Amazon claims it recommends, Gizmodo has learned. In doing so, the law enforcement agency undermines the very argument Amazon uses to discredit critical research about Rekognition.

Google Has Quietly Dropped Ban on Personally Identifiable — ProPublica

Wed Feb 6 18:53:22 2019 - Google Centralisation ViePrivee

for nearly a decade, Google did in fact keep DoubleClick’s massive database of web-browsing records separate by default from the names and other personally identifiable information Google has collected from Gmail and its other login accounts.

But this summer, Google quietly erased that last privacy line in the sand – literally crossing out the lines in its privacy policy that promised to keep the two pots of data separate by default. In its place, Google substituted new language that says browsing habits “may be” combined with what the company learns from the use Gmail and other tools.

The change is enabled by default for new Google accounts. Existing users were prompted to opt-in to the change this summer.

For years, Facebook gave some of the world’s largest technology companies more intrusive access to users’ personal data than it has disclosed, effectively exempting those business partners from its usual privacy rules, according to internal records and interviews.

The special arrangements are detailed in hundreds of pages of Facebook documents obtained by The New York Times. The records, generated in 2017 by the company’s internal system for tracking partnerships, provide the most complete picture yet of the social network’s data-sharing practices. They also underscore how personal data has become the most prized commodity of the digital age, traded on a vast scale by some of the most powerful companies in Silicon Valley and beyond.

Une faille de sécurité a rendu accessible à des applications l’ensemble des photos postées sur Facebook par 6,8 millions d’utilisateurs durant une dizaine de jours en septembre, a annoncé vendredi le réseau social, qui a présenté ses excuses. La faille, qui a été corrigée au bout de 12 jours, ne concerne que des personnes qui ont téléchargé une ou plusieurs de ces quelque 1 500 applications et avaient initialement donné leur accord pour qu’elles utilisent une partie de leurs photos.

Le défaut de sécurité a rendu accessible, du 13 au 25 septembre, l’ensemble des photos de ces utilisateurs, y compris celles téléchargées par des utilisateurs sur Facebook mais pas publiées sur leur page.

How to delete your Google+ profile before Google shuts it down | PCWorld

Google+ may be a punchline in the social-network world, but there’s something seriously wrong with it. For the second time in as many months, Google has announced that Google+ has been hit with another data leak, and this one is way worse than the last.

According to a blog post, some 52.5 million users are affected by this latest data breach, 100X more users than the 500,000 who were exposed during the last data leak. Like last time, affected users had their name, email address, occupation, and age exposed to third-party developers, regardless of whether their account was set to private. Google blames the leak on a bug and says it was fixed within a week of being introduced.

If you find always-listening smart devices creepy, but bought an Amazon Echo anyway, you’re not alone. A recent study from researchers at the University of Michigan found that people who own smart speakers are aware of the risks, but feel resigned to the idea that the erosion of privacy is now a fact of life.
