20-year old college student calls the TSA and tells them security is below-par. Then he proves it.

20-year old college student calls the TSA and tells them security is below-par. Then he proves it. Taking the hacker's ethic of "exposing weakness for the greater good, law be damned" this guy did just that by planting knives and other objects with little notes admonishing the TSA. Feeling safe yet? The TSA thinks we should be.

Hollings privacy bill really a trojan horse for spyware and data miners?

Hollings privacy bill really a trojan horse for spyware and data miners? But Hollings' bill should outrage Internet users just as much as Brilliant Digital's spyware. For while it talks a good game about protecting "sensitive" information, the truth is that it would place a congressional stamp of approval on precisely the kinds of practices that purveyors of spyware are eager to engage in.

'Electric Phrenology' as a security device.

'Electric Phrenology' as a security device. One of Infoseek's founders wants to sell the world's airports on a mind-reading scheme. Worse, a Pentagon think-tank is taking advice from Jeff "Skunk" Baxter, ex-lead guitarist from the Doobie brothers. His advice: psychological warfare with drugs, music, and nanomachines that make you love America. [towards bottom]

European Parliament says Echelon exists

European Parliament says Echelon exists and is more or less powerless to stop it. All the more reason for government and industry to create encryption standards.

The bastards at Symantec

The bastards at Symantec are now charging for virus updates. They've just lost a customer, a hopefully many more. The feedback form is here if you feel the need to bitch at them.
