Unpatched PDF flaw harnessed to launch targeted attacks

Adobe is investigating reports of unpatched flaws in its Reader and Acrobat software packages.

Zero-day bugs in Adobe Reader and Acrobat have reportedly been exploited by hackers to attack vulnerable systems, in a series of limited (presumably) targeted attacks since 11 December. Adobe Reader and Acrobat 9.2 or below are potentially vulnerable to attacks. Successful exploitation creates a means for hackers to inject hostile code onto vulnerable systems, security notification firm Secunia warns.

Every Windows user to get pop-up menu of internet browsers

Every person who owns a computer with Microsoft Windows is to be offered their choice of internet browsers in an automatic pop-up menu following an agreement today between the software company and the European Union.

In March next year all PCs will be sent a software update that will cause a window to appear on screen offering them options to the pre-installed Microsoft Explorer.

All new PCs will also offer a selection of browser options including Mozilla’s Firefox and Google’s Chrome.

Following the deal the EU today dropped anti-trust charges against Microsoft.

Australia: Internet censorship plan gets the green light

The Federal Government has announced it will proceed with controversial plans to censor the internet after Government-commissioned trials found filtering a blacklist of banned sites was accurate and would not slow down the internet.

But critics, including the online users’ lobby group Electronic Frontiers Australia and the Greens communications spokesman Scott Ludlam, said the trial results were not surprising and the policy was still fundamentally flawed.

The Communications Minister, Stephen Conroy, said today he would introduce legislation just before next year’s elections to force ISPs to block a blacklist of “refused classification” (RC) websites for all Australian internet users...

Windows 7 has definite backlight problems (”Black Screen of Death”)

There is definately a problem in Windows 7 RTM with the “Black Screen of Death” despite MS propaganda stating otherwise. This one has nothing to do with 3rd party antivirus software.

The particular problem I am having and see lots of reports on forums is that the backlight is not turning on after an LCD DPMS standby. What’s particularly bad is that some people are blaming their hardware and buying new inverters for their displays. My problematic system dual boots Arch Linux and no amount of LCD power on/off sequences will trigger this in Arch.

Google Sues to Stop Work-From-Home Scams

"At the heart of the scheme is a false representation that consumers can participate in a Google-sponsored program that will allow them to make hundreds of dollars a day working at home performing a simple task that requires no particular experience or qualifications," the search engine giant wrote in a 26-page claim filed in U.S. District Court in Utah.

The lawsuit names Nevada-based Pacific WebWorks and 50 other defendants referred to only as "Does 1 through 50."

Pacific WebWorks did not immediately return calls for comment from ABCNews.com. According to the Google claim, Pacific WebWorks operates a credit card processing site.

Judge affirms $675k verdict in RIAA music piracy case

A federal judge in Boston today formally signed off on a $675,000 fine that a jury assessed against Boston University doctoral student Joel Tenenbaum for illegally sharing 30 copyrighted songs.

But in an unusual decision, U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Gertner expressed "very, very" deep concerns at the "astronomical penalties" available to music companies under copyright laws. Gertner said the court would have been willing to consider Tenenbaum's fair use defense in the case but concluded that the manner in which the arguments were presented by the defense counsel made it all but impossible for her to do so.

How to make a faraday cage wallet - Protect the private info on all your rfid chips.

You already have your tin foil hat, and you're pretty sure no one can find you on the Google. However, there's one detail you may not have thought of, and that's those pesky RFID chips.

RFID tags identifying who and -- gasp! —- where you are can be found in passports, ATM cards, credit cards and some state-issued ID cards. The same technology will possibly even be used in paper money in the near future.

With the right equipment, these chips can be read from afar by data snoops or your friendly government official. A Faraday cage is sufficient for blocking such eavesdropping.

It may be futuristic Hollywood fantasy, but the underlying premise — that we can predict (if not see) a person’s sinister plans before they follow through — is already here.

Yahoo Sells All Its Users Private Email Contents to U.S. Agencies for Small Price

The 17-page guide, which Yahoo has tried to suppress via legal letters to the Cryptome.org site run by freedom of information champion John Young, describes Yahoo’s policies on keeping the data of Yahoo Email and Yahoo Groups users, as well as the surveillance and spying capabilities it can give to the U.S. government and its agencies.

The Yahoo document is a price list for these spying services and has already resulted in many people closing down their accounts in protest. However, closing a Yahoo account is not as easy as one might expect: users have reported great difficulty in finding the link to delete their account, and, Yahoo will still keep data for another 90 days.

Accidental Child Porn Download Leads to Jail Time

Matthew White, of Sacramento, California, has found himself in a rather unfortunate situation; he's been accused of downloading child pornography. On the advice of his public defender, White is pleading guilty in hopes of cutting his potential 20-year sentence down to three and a half years. After serving his time, White will have to serve 10 years of probation and register as a sex offender.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, just HOW did the FBI know that this totally random individual had downloaded this particular "Girls Gone Wild" video, and more to the point, how did the FBI know that this particular "Girls Gone Wild" was really child porn?

Just how is it that they knew to knock on his particular door?

Where is the crime? There was no intent to acquire the child porn. The file in question did not reveal its contents ahead of time. The computer user deleted the file. So there was no intent.

In other words, there seems to be no probable cause and no way for the FBI to know about this "crime" unless the FBI itself planted the file at LimeWire.

What is next, emailing child porn to everyone in the USA to generate arrest numbers? I guess real crime in the USA is so non-existent that the FBI has time to spend hunting for online porn abusers. On the other hand, given that the FBI's advice is to notify it when you recieve child porn and let them take your computer, then by the simple expedient of emailing you a child porn image, the FBI gains access to your entire computer WITHOUT A COURT WARRANT!

Not quite the image J. Edgar Hoover worked so hard to craft in Jimmy Stewart's "The FBI Story", is it?

An excellent analysis of whether the CRU zipfile was “hacked” or “leaked” here, arguing for a combination of a dossier prepared by the university in relation to potential FOI responsibilities (though not necessarily FOI requests in hand) and discovery of the dossier by someone at the university who released it to the outside world – very much along the lines hypothesized by Charles the Moderator of WUWT, but substantially fleshed out.

This is a detailed analysis, unlike IPCC allegations of attacks by the Russian secret service (their version of “A miracle occurred”).

CRU's Source Code: Climategate Uncovered

As the evidence of fraud at the University of East Anglia's prestigious Climatic Research Unit (CRU) continues to mount, those who've been caught green-handed continue to parry their due opprobrium and comeuppance, thanks primarily to a dead-silent mainstream media. But should the hubris and duplicity evident in the e-mails of those whose millennial temperature charts literally fuel the warming alarmism movement somehow fail to convince the world of the scam that's been perpetrated, certainly these revelations of the fraud cooked into the computer programs that create such charts will.

Secret copyright treaty leaks. It's bad. Very bad.

That the whole world must adopt US-style "notice-and-takedown" rules that require ISPs to remove any material that is accused -- again, without evidence or trial -- of infringing copyright.

8 Million Reasons for Real Surveillance Oversight

Cox Communications, the third largest cable provider in the United States, is the only company I've found that has made its surveillance price list public. Thus, we are able to learn that the company charges $2,500 for the first 60 days of a pen register/trap and trace, followed by $2,000 for each additional 60 days, while it charges $3,500 for the first 30 days of a wiretap, followed by $2,500 for each additional 30 days. Historical data is much cheaper -- 30 days of a customer's call detail records can be obtained for a mere $40.

In less than three weeks, the world’s governing class – its classe politique – would meet in Copenhagen, Denmark, to discuss a treaty to inflict an unelected and tyrannical global government on us, with vast and unprecedented powers to control all once-free world markets and to tax and regulate the world’s wealthier nations for its own enrichment: in short, to bring freedom, democracy, and prosperity to an instant end worldwide, at the stroke of a pen, on the pretext of addressing what is now known to be the non-problem of manmade “global warming”.

ClimateGate E-Mails Released by Whistleblower, Not Hacker

The information included e-mails, computer codes, annotations to code and the like. They were all of a part, not rife with "How's the wife?"-type correspondence but apparently the documents responding to a long-frustrated series of requests under the United Kingdom's freedom of information law.

This is only one of numerous factors indicating that the disclosures were not the work of a "hacker," as the media parrot without evidence, but a whistleblower on the inside.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This makes far more sense. As I pointed out when the story first broke, the emails were sent to BBC, which sat on the story for more than a month. At that point the files were posted to a pro-warmist website. Only after the files were erased from that site were the files posted to the Russian server and announced globally.

This is a clear pattern of someone trying to correct the problem from within, first by going to BBC, then posting to the "community" and going fully public only as a last resort.

Search Engines Censoring ClimateGate?

A fantastic article written by Christopher Brooker of the London Telegraph exposing the climate change fraud rocketed to the very top of a Google News search for “global warming,” only to disappear hours later.

“What is going on at Google? I only ask because last night when I typed “Global Warming” into Google News the top item was Christopher Booker’s superb analysis of the Climategate scandal,” writes James Delingpole.

“It’s still the most-read article of the Telegraph’s entire online operation – 430 comments and counting – yet mysteriously when you try the same search now it doesn’t even feature. Instead, the top-featured item is a blogger pushing Al Gore’s AGW agenda. Perhaps there’s nothing sinister in this. Perhaps some Google-savvy reader can enlighten me.”

As I mentioned last eek, there are billions of dollars on the line for the carbon traders and trillions in global taxes on the line for the UN< plus the justification for the UN to take over control of national infrastructure.

The full data – covering 1,000 emails and 3,000 documents in which the most recent document and email is dated 12 November – came to wider notice when a copy was posted on a web server in Russia on 19 November.

But a month earlier a BBC weatherman who had expressed doubts about climate change on his blog was sent a sample of the email exchanges, suggesting the hackers already had access to the private system.

... [S]ecurity experts say there are only three tenable explanations for how the server was hacked: a determined break-in by an external hacker; that one of the CRU or university systems was accidentally "compromised" by a computer virus or other "malware"; or it was an "inside job" by a disaffected member of university staff.

CRU's Source Code: Climategate Uncovered

Skimming through the often spaghetti-like code, the number of programs which subject the data to a mixed-bag of transformative and filtering routines is simply staggering. Granted, many of these "alterations" run from benign smoothing algorithms (e.g., omitting rogue outliers) to moderate infilling mechanisms (e.g., estimating missing station data from that of those closely surrounding). But many others fall into the precarious range between highly questionable (removing MXD data which demonstrate poor correlations with local temperature) to downright fraudulent (replacing MXD data entirely with measured data to reverse a disorderly trend-line).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

CRU relied on 8 papers linking tree ring growth to temperatures in historical times. However, these papers were full of errors despite being approved by the (now known to be compromised) peer-review process.

These papers and indeed the entire CRU methodology was to express tree ring thickness solely in terms of temperature while ignoring or minimizing the effects of variations in water availability, nutrients, disease patterns, and the fact that increased CO2 would trigger more robust plant growth even though the actual temperature might remain constant or even decline.

Remember when science fiction writers warned that computers w9ould control your lives?

You're looking at it.

Thankful on Thanksgiving

While many Americans attempt to be thankful for anything in these trying and evil times, I am truly thankful there are people like Mike, who has created this site to fight for truth and decency against the murderous, hateful, worst examples of our species.

As we remember and reflect upon the gratitude we feel for the wonder that is in our lives, and the people whose talent, love, and inspiration guides us, this is for Mike Rivero, a true American hero and a beacon for the world.

Thanks MIke.

“these will be artificially adjusted”

People are talking about the emails being smoking guns but I find the remarks in the code and the code more of a smoking gun. The code is so hacked around to give predetermined results that it shows the bias of the coder. In other words make the code ignore inconvenient data to show what I want it to show. The code after a quick scan is quite a mess. Anyone with any pride would be to ashamed of to let it out public viewing.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

In other words, the actual computer software used by Hadley CRU was hacked to alter the results it produces.
