THE CONSPIRACY THEORY IS TRUE : AGENTS INFILTRATE WEBSITES INTENDING TO "MANIPULATE, DECEIVE, AND DESTROY REPUTATIONS"


By Tyler Durden / zerohedge.com
 
In the annals of internet conspiracy theories, none is more pervasive than the one speculating paid government plants infiltrate websites, social network sites, and comment sections with an intent to sow discord, troll, and generally manipulate, deceive and destroy reputations. Guess what: it was all true.

And this time we have a pretty slideshow of formerly confidential data prepared by the UK NSA equivalent, the GCHQ, to confirm it, and Edward Snowden to thank for disclosing it. The messenger in this case is Glenn Greenwald, who has released the data in an article in his new website, firstlook.org, which he summarizes as follows: "by publishing these stories one by one, our NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, the targeting of Anonymous with the very same DDoS attacks they accuse “hacktivists” of using, the use of “honey traps” (luring people into compromising situations using sex) and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself." Call it Stasi for "Generation Internet."

Greenwald's latest revelation focuses on GCHQ’s previously secret unit, the JTRIG (Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group).

EN 6 MOIS, TWITTER A SUSPENDU  235.000 COMPTES FAISANT LA PROMOTION DU TERRORISME 

 Hier

Le réseau social américain Twitter a annoncé jeudi avoir suspendu 235.000 comptes sur les six derniers mois dans le cadre de sa lutte contre les publications faisant la promotion du terrorisme.

Ajouté aux suspensions déjà évoquées en février, quand Twitter avait donné un chiffre pour la première fois, cela porte à 360.000 le total des comptes à contenus terroristes suspendus depuis mi-2015.

Les règles d’utilisation du réseau social américain interdisent les menaces violentes et la promotion du terrorisme. Il avait affiché en février sa volonté d’intensifier ses efforts pour les appliquer, montrant ainsi qu’il ne restait pas inactif face aux appels gouvernementaux à freiner la propagande jihadiste sur internet.

« Les suspensions quotidiennes en hausse de 80% »
Citation:


« Les suspensions quotidiennes sont en hausse de 80%, comparé à l’an dernier, avec des pics de suspensions suivant immédiatement les attaques terroristes » qui se sont multipliées ces derniers mois, souligne Twitter dans le message publié jeudi sur son blog officiel.



Tout en reconnaissant que le travail n’est « pas fini », le réseau social affirme que « nos efforts continuent d’avoir des résultats importants, y compris un déplacement important de ce type d’activité en dehors de Twitter ».

Il dit aussi avoir amélioré le temps nécessaire pour suspendre les comptes qui lui sont signalés et la durée pendant laquelle ils restent actifs sur son réseau. Ces actions réduisent énormément le nombre d’abonnés que les comptes peuvent accumuler et empêche de recréer immédiatement un compte sur sa plateforme.

« Pas d’algorithme magique »
 
Comme en février, Twitter dit avoir augmenté ses équipes chargées d’examiner les contenus signalés, et avoir amélioré les outils de détection qui lui ont permis d’identifier de manière automatique plus d’un tiers des comptes finalement suspendus. Il réaffirme toutefois qu’il n’y a « pas d’algorithme magique » pour identifier les contenus terroristes sur internet.

C’est ce qu’ont aussi indiqué dans le passé d’autres grands acteurs d’internet. Comme Twitter, Facebook et YouTube comptent beaucoup sur les utilisateurs pour  leur signaler les contenus litigieux. Ils sont ensuite examinés par des équipes qui décident s’il faut les retirer, voire fermer le compte.

Facebook a lui aussi indiqué par le passé que quand ces équipes trouvaient des contenus ou des comptes pro-terroristes, elles utilisaient des outils dédiés pour repérer d’autres comptes associés.

L'UNESCO REALISE DES VIDEOS...



Peux-t-on parler du contrôle des médias???


L’UNESCO réalise des séquences vidéo (B-rolls) permettant aux journalistes d’éditer des sujets télévisés sur l’UNESCO, des reportages vidéo illustrant les projets et les activités de l’UNESCO, des vidéos thématiques promouvant les programmes de l’UNESCO, des clips vidéo délivrant des messages clés et des interviews vidéo d’experts.

 L’ARAV S’ATTELLE A ACCREDITER LES CHAÎNES DE TELEVISION QUI RESPECTENT LES REGLES DEONTOLOGIQUES DU METIER

Et qui dicte les règles de déontologies? Cet article n'est qu'un autre exemple de propagande. Tout ce qui y est rapporté, eh bien, croyez le contraire de tout ce que vous y lisez et vous serez dans la vérité. Pour être accrédité, la chaîne et les journalistes devront se conformer et lire exclusivement ce qui leur sera autorisé de dire. Ceux qui ne voudront pas plier le genou seront empêchés de diffusion. Ces nouvelles mesures une censure totale sur les opinions des citoyens également dans très peu de temps, puisque le président Obama, donnera, à partir du 1er octobre, le plein contrôle de l'internet à l'ICANN (
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) et complètement géré par le secteur privé et contrôlé par les Nations Unies https://www.icann.org/fr

Qu'est-ce que l'ICANN ?

La Société pour l'attribution des noms de domaine et des numéros sur Internet est un organisme à but non lucratif responsable de la sécurité, la stabilité et la coordination mondiale du système d'identificateurs uniques de l'Internet.


Nous pouvons donc dire de manière sûre que c'est la fin de la liberté d'opinion et d'expression.

Le ministre de la communication, Hamid Grine, a indiqué, mardi à Sidi Bel-Abbès, que l’Autorité de régulation de l’audiovisuel (ARAV) s’attelle à accréditer les chaînes de télévision qui s’engagent à respecter les règles déontologiques du métier. A l’ouverture de la conférence citoyenne sur le thème : "Connaitre les médias, le citoyen a le droit à une information fiable" Rolling Eyes , le ministre a souligné que l’ARAV, dont la composante a été installée récemment, s’attelle à accréditer les chaînes de télévision qui s’engagent à respecter les règles déontologiques du métier.

"Les autres chaînes non accréditées seront privées de diffusion", a-t-il ajouté. M. Grine a rappelé que le journaliste doit également respecter la déontologie de son métier en vérifiant son information en se basant sur une source sûre pour la rapporter d’une manière objective au citoyen qui voit son droit à une information fiable garanti. Le ministre a rappelé que le journaliste a la liberté d’aborder tous les sujets qu’il désire et que la constitution a consacré la liberté d’expression, pour peu que celle-ci ne porte pas atteinte à la sécurité et à la stabilité du pays. "Le journaliste doit rapporter l’information loin de toute diffamation, insulte ou atteinte aux personnes", a-t-il dit. Il a également rappelé que la publicité sera destinée aux médias respectant la déontologie professionnelle. Concernant le prix du journaliste professionnel décerné par le Président de la République, le ministre a estimé que ce concours, ouvert à tous les professionnels algériens, peut contribuer au développement de la pratique journalistique et créer un esprit d’émulation au sein de la corporation. Actuellement, 140 dossiers ont été déposés pour prendre au concours dont les délais ont été prolongés jusqu’au 25 du mois en cours. Dans le cadre de ce cycle de formation citoyenne, la Directrice du quotidien "Ech-Chaab", Mme Amina Debbache, a évoqué les notions de la presse publique, du service public, de la liberté de la presse et d’expression. Elle a également longuement parlé du paysage médiatique national, en présence de près de 400 journalistes et représentants des différentes institutions et du mouvement associatif et citoyen. Par ailleurs, le ministre a visité la maison de la presse et le centre de presse, sis dans l’enceinte de la wilaya de Sidi Bel-Abbès, où il a rencontré des journalistes des secteurs public et privé. Il a aussi animé une rencontre sur les ondes de la radio locale au cours de laquelle il a insisté sur l’importance de la formation continue des journalistes, de l’amélioration de leurs capacités professionnelles et de leur adaptation aux progrès technologiques de l’heure.

MEDIA : UNE REFORME POUR «DONNER PLUS DE FORCE A LA VOIX DU PAPE ET DE L'EGLISE»

Alors que le petit peuple sera très bientôt muselé et criminalisé sur chaque propos qui ira contre les intérêts de l'Eglise.

Le directeur de la salle de presse du Saint-Siège reçoit 40 journalistes

7 septembre 2016 Constance Roques Media, Rome


  Greg Burke © L'Osservatore Romano

« Donner davantage de force à la voix du pape et de l’Église », c’est ce que vise la réforme des media du Vatican, confie Greg Burke, le directeur de la Salle de presse du Saint-Siège, qui a rencontré, ce jeudi 7 septembre 2016, dans cette même Salle de presse, 40 journalistes de 18 pays participant à un séminaire de l’Université pontificale de la Sainte-Croix intitulé « Church Up Close ».

A propos de la réforme des media du Vatican, lancée par le pape François, Greg Burke a souligné, rapporte Radio Vatican en italien, que l’objectif est de « donner davantage de force à la voix du pape et de l’Église dans le monde », et comme « il y a de nombreux talents dans les media du Vatican, un processus aussi important aura besoin de temps » : « dans le monde de la communication aussi, il faut vaincre la tentation du « on a toujours fait comme cela ». »

« A l’époque des réseaux sociaux, qui se distingue par sa rapidité, il est important que la salle de presse fournisse les nouvelles non seulement de manière claire et précise mais aussi dans le moins de temps possible », a fait observer Greg Burke.

Il a souligné que la présence du pape sur les réseaux sociaux était « un signe important de la volonté de l’Église de rejoindre tout le monde et partout. Un signe qui est aussi un exemple pour les media du Vatican : le Jubilé de la miséricorde offre, avec les gestes de tendresse du pape François, une contribution à la manière de travailler des moyens de communication »

Il a fait état des « grands changements, en particulier technologiques », qui ont eu lieu au cours de ces vingt dernières années, c’est-à-dire depuis qu’il a commencé à suivre à Rome l’activité du pape et du Saint-Siège, en tant que correspondant de « Time Magazine ».

Il a confié comment il vit cette nouvelle mission, qu’il a commencée le 1er août dernier : « La foi est un élément fondamental pour bien remplir son rôle ». Il a avoué son « émotion » lorsqu’il s’est retrouvé « à quelques pas derrière le pape ».

Et il a rendu hommage à son prédécesseur, le p. Federico Lombardi SJ, qui « trouve dans sa foi la sérénité pour affronter même les défis les plus difficiles ».

DUE TO RELIGIOUS INTOLERANCE FACEBOOK BANS ALL CHRISTIAN THEMED CONTENT
 
You can't silence the word of God. Remember, CEO Mark Zuckerberg just met Pope Francis some days ago. On Sept 7, 2016 this article "MEDIA : UNE REFORME POUR «DONNER PLUS DE FORCE A LA VOIX DU PAPE ET DE L'EGLISE" (Media : Reform to "give more force to the voice of Pope and to the church") https://fr.zenit.org/articles/media-une-reforme-pour-donner-plus-de-force-a… . We can clearly see the Roman catholic agenda and the Jesuit Pope Francis to only silence christianity.


"And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations."
Revelation 13:7

"And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out."

Luc 19:40

"And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people, Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters."
Revelation 14:6-7

Representatives from Facebook, the social media giant known for making overnight changes in policy have announced their newest policy update, which is being viewed as one of the company’s most controversial changes to date.

According to Facebook representative Riker Jepson, the company’s founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, has made the decision to ban all Christian themed content in attempt to celebrate religious diversity while at the same time reducing religious intolerance among the social network’s estimated 1.65 billion monthly active users.

According to Jepson, one of the most frequent complaints made by Facebook users each month is what many of the website’s members describe as religious intolerance or bullying by the social network’s Christian population. Many Facebook users have complained that the website has become “over-saturated” with Christian posts, groups, pages, meme’s, and even Christian themed hashtags.

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the social networking website contains a myriad of Christian themed content as Christianity is currently the world’s largest religion with over 2.4 billion adherents. It’s believed that approximately 32% of the global population identifies with some form of Christianity.

According to Jepson, the company’s developers are currently working to create an algorithm that will alert staff of any content that appears to be related to Christianity. All flagged content will be reviewed by a dedicated team and will be immediately removed if found to be in violation of community standards. According to Jepson, repeated offenders will have their credentials suspended and will no longer have access to their Facebook accounts. Though Jepson estimates their developers will have mastered the necessary algorithm within the next few weeks, the company is giving users until November 15, 2016, to ensure compliance with the newest policy update.

Though Facebook will be void of all Christian related content, not all religious themed content will be banned. Several religions will still have free-reign on the social network including but not limited to, Buddhism, Deity, Druid, Eckankar, Ethical Culture, Hindu, Humanist, Jewish, Mormonism, Muslim, Native American Spirituality, New Age, Pagan, Rastafarian, Santeria, Scientologist, Secular, Sikh, Spiritualist, Taoist, and Unitarian Universalist. = all pagan religions

As news of Facebook’s most recent policy update travels through mainstream and social media, many users have expressed their disagreement with the policy, however a large population of users have expressed their appreciation for Zuckerberg’s decision. One Facebook user, Ivan Soren, told reporters, “I’m honestly very excited about this new policy. I’ve been running a non-Christian religious group on Facebook for the past 3-years and it’s pretty much impossible to get noticed among the overwhelming amount of Christian content. This will definitely even the playing field.”

Business analysts widely anticipate Facebook to experience a slight decline in active users within the next few months, however estimate the company will see an increase in user engagement throughout 2017.

La journée de l’internaute (Internaut Day), célébrée le 23 août à travers le monde, rend hommage à l'invention du World Wide Web. Un « internaute » désigne une personne qui possède de solides connaissances relatives à l’utilisation et à l'histoire d'Internet. Mais quelle est donc l’histoire du web ?

En mars 1989, Tim Berners-Lee, scientifique du CERN, propose de développer un système d’information décentralisé pour le Laboratoire. En décembre 1990, le premier site web et le premier serveur sont prêts à voir le jour au CERN. À cette époque, les scientifiques se servent du Word Wide Web pour échanger des informations à travers le monde. Il faudra attendre avril 1993 pour que le code source soit diffusé dans le domaine public.

Bien que le 23 août ne soit pas la date exacte de la création du web, c'est une occasion d'apprécier combien il est aujourd'hui facile de communiquer et à quel point cette invention est devenue indispensable dans notre vie quotidienne.

Découvrez les étapes importantes qui ont conduit à la création du web.

Stressing That Few Professions Influence Society as Much as Journalism, Reminds Them of Their Responsibility as They Write ‘1st Draft of History’

September 23, 2016 Deborah Castellano Lubov Papal Texts


  CTV Screenshot

“There are few professions that have so much influence on society as journalism does,” Pope Francis has reminded journalists, and given this he has outlined to them three pillars which should always animate their important work.

When receiving in audience Thursday the Italian National Council of the Order of Journalists, Francis expressed this and underscored that journalists possess roles of great importance and of great responsibility. The Pope spoke after interventions were given by the Prefect of the Secretariat for Communication, Monsignor Dario E. Vilano, and of the President of the Order, Enzo Iacopino.

“In some way you write the ‘first draft of history,’ constructing the agenda of the news and introducing persons to the interpretation of events,” he told those present. “And this is so important.”

The Holy Father observed how social media has changed the roles of the media, but stressed that journalists are still important.

“Though the printed paper or television lose relevance in respect to the new media of the digital world – especially among young people – when journalists have professionalism, they remain an important pillar, a fundamental element for the vitality of a free and pluralist society.”

In face of the changes in the world of media, the Pontiff pointed out, “the Holy See has also lived and is living a process of renewal of the communicative system, of which you also should benefit; and the Secretariat for Communication will be the natural reference point for your valuable work.”

In fact, the statutes of the new Secretariat were also released Thursday.

Despite Deadlines, Reflect for a Moment

Francis then went on to reflect on some aspects of the journalistic profession, and how it can serve for the betterment of the society in which we live.

It is indispensable for all of us to pause to reflect on what we are doing and on how we are doing it. In the spiritual life, this often assumes the form of a day of retreat, of deeper interior reflection. I think that in the professional life, there is also need of this, of a bit of time to pause and reflect.

“This,” the Pope admitted, “is certainly not easy in the journalistic realm, a profession that lives with constant ‘delivery times’  and ‘expiration dates.’ But at least for a brief moment, we will try to reflect a bit on the reality of journalism.”

Pope Francis then proposed three essential pillars for all journalists: “to love the truth, something essential for all, but especially for journalists; to live with professionalism, something that goes well beyond laws and regulations; and to respect human dignity, which is much more difficult that one might think at first sight.”
 
To Love the Truth

To love the truth, the Pope explained, does not only mean to affirm it but to live it, to witness it with one’s work — “to live and work, therefore, with coherence in regard to the words that one uses for a newspaper article or a television service.” He noted that the question here is not whether one is or is not a believer, but rather whether one is or is not being honest with oneself and with others.

“Relationship is the heart of every communication. This is all the more true for one who makes of communication his metier. And no relation can stand and last in time if it rests on dishonesty.”

“I realize that in today’s journalism – an uninterrupted flow of facts and events reported 24 hours a day, and seven days a week – it is not always easy to arrive at the truth, or at least to come close to it. In life not all is white or black. In journalism also, it is necessary to be able to discern between the shades of grey of the events that one is called to report.”

“The political debates, and even many conflicts, are rarely the outcome  of clear, distinctive dynamics, where we recognize clearly and unequivocally who is wrong and who is right,” Francis observed, noting, “The confrontations are sometimes clashes; at bottom, they are born in fact from the difficulties of synthesis among the different positions.”

Yet, the Holy Father stressed, this is the work, or even “the mission” of the journalist: “to come as close as possible to the truth of the facts and never say or write something that one knows, in conscience, is not true.”

To Live With Professionalism

The Pope then turned to the second element, namely that “to live with professionalism means first of all – beyond what we can find written in deontological codes – to understand, to interiorize the profound meaning of one’s work.”

“From here stems the need not to subject one’s profession to the logics of partisan interests, whether economic or political. A task of journalism, I dare say its vocation is, therefore – through attention, care in seeking the truth – to have man’s social dimension grow, to foster the building of  true citizenship.”

The Pontiff discussed the necessary freedom of journalists, recalling how “in the course of history, dictatorships – of whatever orientation or ‘color’ – have always sought not only to control the means of communication, but also to impose new rules on the journalistic profession.”

Respecting Human Dignity

While noting that respecting human dignity is important in every profession, the Pope stressed this is especially true in journalism, “because behind the simple reporting of an event there are also sentiments, emotions, and, in short, the life of individuals.”

I have often spoken of gossip as ‘terrorism,’ about how one can kill a person with the tongue. If this is true for individual persons, in the family or at work, it is all the more true for journalists, because their voice can reach all, and this is  a very powerful weapon. Journalism must always respect a person’s dignity. An article is published today and, tomorrow, it will be replaced by another, but the life of a person unjustly defamed can be destroyed forever. Criticism is certainly legitimate, and I will say more, necessary, as is the denunciation of evil, but this must always be done respecting the other, his life, his affections. Journalism cannot become a “weapon of destruction” of persons and even of peoples. Nor must it fuel fear in face of the changes and phenomenons such as migrations forced by war and famine.”

Pope Francis concluded with his prayers and expressing his hope “that increasingly and everywhere journalism is an instrument of construction, a factor of common good, an accelerator of processes of reconciliation, which is able to reject the temptation to foment clashes, with a language that blows on the fire of divisions, and, instead, that it foster the culture of encounter.”

“You journalists can remind all every day that there is no conflict that cannot be resolved by women and men of good will,” he said.

CYBER WAR - HATE SPEECH

FINLAND SENDS COPS ONLINE TO TARGET HATE SPEECH AMID SOCIETAL DIVISIONS 


© AFP 2016/ Sam Kingsley Life 14:18 26.09.2016(updated 14:30 26.09.2016)

 The ever growing migrant crisis has increasingly polarized Finland. The division was is reflected by the dramatic rise of the far-right sentiments, which became a now the subject of a nation-wide debate.


Today, Finland is seeking to clamp down on hate speech online in a bid to curb right-wing extremism. Nordic Resistance Movement © Wikipedia/

Peter Isotalo Finland Sees Rise in Hate Crimes and Unreported Racism According to Interior Minister Paula Risikko, Finland could soon have more police officers scouring the internet to prevent and stop hate speech.

 The police should become more proactive in tackling hate speech and consider new ways of working to uncover, investigate and prevent extremist groups from operating online, Risikko told Finnish national broadcaster Yle.

According to Risikko, the current legislation offers no distinct definition of what constitutes hate speech and should be amended. "Under the current legislation it seems difficult to investigate the background and motives of figures involved in hate speech, and to intervene," Risikko said, citing lawmakers' fragmented approach. Risikko's demands for more online policing come after last week's report by the Police University College, according to which hate crimes and racism seem to be on the rise in Finland, while an overwhelming majority of cases go unreported.

 The last drop, however, was the death of a 28-year-old anti-Nazi protester who was killed in a street fight after spitting at far-right members of the Finnish branch of the Nordic Resistance Movement (FRM) earlier this month. The organization is known for its opposition to non-white immigration to Scandinavia and aims at protecting the "indigenous population."

The deadly scuffle, which took place at a FRM demonstration in Helsinki, has led to calls from numerous politicians, including Prime Minister Juha Sipilä, to ban the Finnish Resistance Movement together with its radical cousins. Sipilä was supported by Risikko, who felt that extremist organizations and their symbols should be banned. "Violence from extremist movements is a clear concern of the silent Finnish majority," Sipilä told Finnish national broadcaster Yle.

​The death of Jimi Joonas Karttunen, who died of brain hemorrhage one week after the fight, triggered a lively response across Finland. Last weekend, numerous demonstrations against both violent racism and unhinged immigration took place in the Nordic country. On Saturday, 15,000 protesters participated in the anti-racist Peli Poikki ("Stop the game") march locally dubbed "Day of Demonstrations," with similar demos being held in other Finnish cities. Counter-demonstrations also occurred in Helsinki. The anti-migrant Rajat Kiinni ("Close the borders") group also held a protest in the Finnish capital. Lastly, a group against same sex marriage laws was held in Helsinki.

POPE FRANCIS SAYS RUMOR AND FEAR-BASED JOURNALISM IS 'TERRORISM'

Peter Kenny |Thursday, September 22 2016


   (Photo: L'Osservatore Romano.)Pope Francis meets with Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan at the Vatican Aug. 29, 2016.

Pope Francis has warned that when journalism is based on rumors or on stoking public fear, it can become a "form of terrorism" and a "weapon of destruction" of both people and nations.

The Pope met Sept. 22 with the Italian National Council of the Order of Journalists at the Vatican, telling them that truth, professionalism and respect for human dignity are essential elements in their work.

The pontiff told them that there are few professions that have "so much influence on society like that of journalism."

He noted that they are usually the ones who are there to record what has been called, the "first draft of history," and "the building of the news agenda and introducing people to the interpretation of events."

Francis also urged journalists not to stoke fear regarding phenomena such as migration forced by war or hunger, Crux reports.

"I have often spoken of rumors as 'terrorism,' of how you can kill a person with the tongue," Francis said.

"If this is valid for an individual person, in the family or at work, so much more it's valid for journalists, because their voice can reach everyone, and this is a very powerful weapon," he said.

The Pope said, however, criticism is legitimate, as well as the "denunciation of evil, but this must always be done respecting the other, his life, his affections."

He said this because an article is replaced from one day to the other, but the life of a person "unjustly defamed can be destroyed forever."

Francis addressed close to 400 journalists from group and he took time after his remarks, to greet each one of them.

The pontiff also said that when practiced with professionalism, journalism is a fundamental element of an independent and pluralist society.

He named three essential elements in the work of a journalist, that he said, could serve to "improve the society in which we live." These are: to love the truth, to embody professionalism and to respect human dignity.

On the first, the pope said that it's not about believing in something or not, but about being honest, and never publishing a story - either in print, radio, TV or social media- knowing it's false.

24 HOURS A DAY NEWS CYCLE

"I understand that in today's journalism, with an uninterrupted flux of facts and events told 24 hours a day, seven days a week, it's not always easy to get to the truth, or even to get close to it," Francis said.

He also referred to a concept he's used when talking to priests, saying that everything in life is black or white.

"Even in journalism, it's necessary to discern between the shades of gray of the events being told," he said, particularly when it's about topics such as politics or war, that are rarely the result of clear dynamics.

Living with professionalism, according to Francis, means not to pin one's profession to the interests of others, either economic or political.
"It's important to always reflect on the fact that, across history, dictatorships- of any orientation or 'color'- have always tried to not only undertake the media, but also to impose new rules to the profession," he said.

Francis called journalists to be an "instrument of construction," factors in the common good, capable of avoiding the temptation of fomenting confrontation and instead promoters of a "culture of encounter."

CYBERCRIMINALITY WAR GAME

MERCENARY CYBERCRIMINALS FOR HIRE BY TERRORISTS  - EUROPOL

The war propaganda of Europol to be able to attack the ones who do not comply to their lies and agenda. Part of the war against free speech. Just an other group of gang members who will be pay with our tax dollars.




© Photo: Pixabay Tech 19:14 28.09.2016

Cybercriminals offering contract services for hire could provide militant groups the means to attack Europe, the EU police agency Europol warned on Wednesday (September 28). The so-called Darknet is being exploited by militants taking advantage of computer experts offering crime "at your service."

Europol director, Rob Wainwright, issued a stark warning this week that cybercrime is on the rise, and that law enforcement is struggling to keep pace.

In particular, Mr. Wainwright highlighted the fear that terrorists could commission the freelance services of cybercriminals to further their activities.

 "While the extent to which extremist groups currently use cyber techniques to conduct attacks appears to be limited, the availability of cybercrime tools and services, and illicit commodities such as firearms on the darknet, provide ample opportunities for this situation to change."



Jake Hockley, the Director of Marclay Associates, a cybersecurity firm, told Sputnik that this kind of outsourcing makes cybercrime more difficult to track and intercept.

"If the criminals and militants speak to the right people, online protection and the use of the Darknet, accessed via the TOR browser, can make it very difficult for law enforcement to track down who is at the end of an email address or chat username. Traffic is, by default, encrypted in TOR so this makes monitoring traffic difficult.

"However, there are numerous scammers on the Darknet, offering a range of services and, whilst you can make a purchase of a firearm or hacking exploit, you are also just as likely to be ripped off by a fellow criminal," Jake Hockley told Sputnik.

Europol also called for greater security collaboration across national borders.

"Law enforcement presence in an area that has no effective national boundaries causes issues. To effectively progress such investigations requires at least EU-level cooperation. Given the additional challenges investigations on the Darknet present to law enforcement, collaboration and the sharing of intelligence is essential," Rob Wainwright said.

So What is the Darknet? Cath Senker is an author who focuses on cybercrime in her new book, Cybercrime and the Darknet https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=BwweDQAAQBAJ&pg=PT5&lpg=PT5&amp… .

 "The Darknet is anything that is not visible to regular users: you can't just Google those sites. It's everything that's beneath the surface and that does include databases and subscription only services," Cath Senker told Sputnik.

 "They can buy and sell illegal goods and services that you can't do so easily on the surface net because there are no control mechanisms there. So clearly, that gives opportunities."

 "Interestingly, my book does look at the other side of that, which is that it [the Darknet] does provide opportunities for people who do need to have freedom of expression, because it is unsupervised," Ms. Senker added.

Mr. Hockley from Marclay Associates, explained the kinds of tools that cybercriminals deploy to extort money from their victims.

"The attack that most companies fear the most is the targeted attack using sophisticated (or 'zero day') malware. Zero day malware is something that has not had a security patch released for it, so cannot be defended against. In these attacks, the aim of the hacking group is to steal all the information that resides in a company's database.

"In this type of attack nothing is left — so the company is faced with the very real prospect of serious reputational damage which may be fatal. The motives for this kind of attack vary and often this kind of attack is delivered for either political or business competition reasons. So the company may not know it has been attacked for months or even years. Companies that deal with government contracts, particularly in defense, are targeted by hostile nation states with this kind of attack."

"If they are looking for a mass attack against multiple targets for generating money then ransomware continues to be developed that will try to circumvent anti-virus programs. Some of these gangs are well resourced and the ransomware industry is worth millions. They will send out an email with an attachment or, as is becoming more common, will compromise a website and use it to host malware which they will then try and get users to visit.

 "This will then launch the program on the victim's computer, silently encrypting everything on the computer (or network) and then asking for a 'ransom' to be paid in bitcoins to decrypt the information. It is the digital version of extortion," Mr. Hockley told Sputnik.

The UK is particularity vulnerable to Distributed Denial of Service — or DDoS — attacks, which aim to flood a network or server with so much traffic that it cannot cope and basically "crashes." In August, it was revealed that the UK gets hit by 9.3 % of the world's DDoS attacks — second only to the United States.

Mr. Hockley explained the consequences for targeted businesses:

"The gang will use multiple compromised computers in multiple locations to remotely send requests to the server simultaneously, a bit like a thousand calls all coming into a call centre at the same time. Cyber gangs are known to threaten companies with DDoS attacks and demand money or they will be attacked. The consequences for, say, an online retailer who has their website attacked in this manner are huge."

Europol Director Rob Wainwright, also commented on how criminals are exploiting the trend across societies the world over, to increasingly depend on technology and the Internet in our day to day lives.



Author Cath Senker, agrees. "Absolutely, the only reason crime has increased on the Darknet is because more and more people are using the internet. More people are doing their business online, whether it's through online banking or buying goods and services.

"Businesses and people go where the opportunities are, and increasingly they are online.

"At the end of the day, it's easier to defraud someone online, than to do so on the street."

'FORMING' DEVOUT CATHOLICS - A CLICK AWAY

During the time, the Roman Empire will destroy the entire world, they will be there to assist you in you distress by taking control of the medias. Non-inclusive protesters will not be tolerate anymore. That's why they will give the total grip of Internet to the UN and big corporations. 





  Online platform is the new "Roman road" for the new evangelization
 
Contact: Kevin Wandra, 404-788-1276
 
DENVER, Sept. 29, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- According to a Digital TV Research forecast, the number of streaming video households in North America is expected to reach 76.5 million by 2020. This new pathway has expanded the field for engagement in the new evangelization to the TVs, tablets and smartphones of this time.

Dr. Tim Gray, president of the Augustine Institute, is urging us to take up the zeal of the early Church fathers who took to the Roman roads to spread the good news: "There is a new Roman road today. The new Roman road is the internet and the digital age. We need to take up these roads for the faith, for Jesus Christ."

FORMED, a Netflix-like VOD and digital content service for both seeker and believer, connects users to this new "Roman road," where the best audio, video, e-books and feature-length films are available from the Catholic worldview. With the producers of this content coming from such credible sources as Augustine Institute, Ignatius Press and Word on Fire ministries, the interest in the FORMED platform is skyrocketing. In just its first year, the number of users has grown to more than 150,000 registered users representing approximately 2,300 parishes. Dioceses are jumping on board as they recognize the value in being able to extend the ways parishioners evangelize beyond the four walls of their local churches. Over the past year, the dioceses of Baker, Cincinnati, Lincoln, Colorado Springs, Philadelphia and Cheyenne have been using FORMED with incredible results, and recently several new dioceses have adopted the platform, including Arlington, Birmingham and the largest diocese in the U.S.: the Archdiocese of New York.

In the Archdiocese of New York, 2.6 million parishioners throughout its 296 parishes will have unlimited access to the expansive FORMED content, at no cost for the next year. And that reach can be multiplied to include anyone who lives within the boundaries of the archdiocese, whether they are Catholic or non-Catholic. A multi-day training in the archdiocese for priests, diocesan leaders, including youth ministers and directors of evangelization, concluded last week.

"FORMED has been amazing for evangelization," said Dr. Edward Sri, vice president of mission outreach for the Augustine Institute. "Some of the stories we're hearing have been just incredible."

Christian Ketel from Colorado Springs was shocked when his mother left their Evangelical Protestant faith to convert to Catholicism. His mother shared a FORMED access code with him so he could understand what exactly she now believed. His exposure to the FORMED content played a significant role in leading him toward the Catholic Church.

"It has been an ongoing process to shift from my Protestant worldview to the truth guarded and proclaimed by the Roman Catholic Church," said Ketel. "FORMED has been an invaluable resource in my journey towards a fuller and deeper understanding of our Faith, and it has helped bring me closer to our Lord Jesus Christ and Our Blessed Mother. What else could anyone ask for?"

Rev. Thomas Wray, director of the office of evangelization and discipleship at the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, also praised FORMED.

"Because Archbishop Dennis Schnurr has called us to create a 'culture of vocations,' there is no single better digital source of faithful, relevant and accessible Catholic teaching in cyberspace," Wray says of FORMED. "FORMED allows us to reach our faithful's lives in personal, portable and conversion-oriented ways."
 
Listen to what Dr. Tim Gray of the Augustine Institute has to say about FORMED here.

GOVERNMENTS NEED A STRONGER PRESENCE ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO COUNTER TERRORISM PROPAGANDA

Do you think this article is pure propaganda? The real terrorisms are the ones who put this counter terrorist agenda to be able to
terrorize the populations all over the world. This is part of their war game against the freedom of speech.

Cybercrime is the biggest threat Europe and Latin America face, according to analysts at a conference on terrorism and security issues

Marcos Ommati/Diálogo | 30 September 2016

Transnational Threats

Yahoo! announced on September 22nd that hackers had stolen the account information of at least 500 million users two years ago, in the biggest known intrusion of one company’s computer network. That same day, hackers posted hundreds of emails containing detailed information on the minute-by-minute schedules and precise movements of U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during recent campaign fundraisers and official political events. The emails included names and cellphone numbers of numerous Secret Service agents, spreadsheets with the names and Social Security numbers of campaign donors, and PowerPoint presentations with step-by-step directions for where officials like Vice President Biden should walk when they arrived at events, The New York Times reported.

News such as these are becoming more and more common, and that’s why the Global Security Conference 2016: The Americas Addressing Security Threats revolved around two main topics - cybercrimes and terrorism. The event, hosted by the International Organization for Security and Intelligence (IOSI), was held in Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada, from September 15th-16th . Members of the military, police, law enforcement, and other authorities from Canada, the United States, South and Central America, and the Caribbean were in attendance

Narco-terror tactics

IOSI President Johan Obdola and Conference Chairman Peter Tarlow gave their opening remarks and later joined retired Major General Shlomi Michael, former commander of Israel Police Counter-terrorism Unit, and Adam Blackwell, Secretary of Multidimensional Security at the Organization of American States , on a panel to discuss terrorism, transnational crime, tourism and security, and narco-terrorism. They gave an overview of how terrorism and transnational crime are becoming more and more related, and how drug dealers now use terror tactics to conduct their illegal businesses.

Tarlow, who specializes on the impact of crime and terrorism on the tourism industry, elaborated on the topic of Tourism and Security. He reminded those present that terrorism exists since 66 AD with the Palestinian sicarii (from the Greek sikaroi, meaning “dagger men”) whose activities “would qualify them as terrorists.” But for specialists around the world, terrorism became the most prominent security issue of the early 21st century only a few years ago.

A $7.7 trillion industry

According to Tarlow, attacks on tourist attractions or strategic buildings, such as the Twin Towers in New York in 2001, aim to disrupt the country’s tourism industry. “Tourism is the sector which employs the most nowadays. It’s a $7.7 trillion annual industry worldwide, so it makes sense for terrorists to damage this sector, because it directly affects all areas of the economy of any given country.”

Major General Michael spoke about the tactics and strategies used in his country to combat terrorism. He showed rare footage containing graphic videos of terrorist attacks in Jerusalem and other cities in Israel in recent years. “You can deal with terrorism in several different ways, but in my opinion, they way to defeat the groups who are enlisting our youth to fight for their terror cause is to use social media. We all need to become experts on this subject, otherwise, this will be a lost battle,” he said.

The first day ended with Obdola’s presentation on combating transnational organized crime in Central and South America, and the Caribbean.

The John Norman Lindley Foundation

The John Norman Lindley Foundation was one of the conference’s main sponsors. President Roxanne Lindley attended the 2015 and 2016 terror attacks in Paris, France, and Brussels, Belgium. “I was – unfortunately – present at Paris and Brussels when their population and tourists were targets of terrorist attacks [November 2015 and March 2016 respectively]. So, when I learned that the organizers of the Global Security Conference were looking for a venue in Canada, I thought it was a no-brainer to have it held here [in Okanagan Valley/Kelowna, British Columbia], since the main goal of this event is to try to come up with ideas for all of us to live in a more peaceful world,” she said at the opening of the second day of discussions.

Cybercrimes

The conference’s final panel, Addressing Cyber Issues in Smart Cities and Safe Cities: Raising the Bar on Collaboration and Prevention, included a group of experts who gave very interesting insight on the biggest threats cities and companies around the world are facing today – cyber-crimes.

The panel included Sergeant Cory Dayley and Inspector Ryan Jepson, of the Technical Operations Section at the Cyber/Forensic Unit of the Calgary Police Service; Dan Swartwood and Bessie Pang, president and executive director (respectively) of the Society for the Policing of Cyberspace (POLCYB); and Scott Warren, partner at Squire Patton Boggs (Japan) and POLCYB Secretary, who chaired the conference.

“The nature of crime changed significantly with Internet,” stated Warren to open the discussion. “If you were a bank robber back in the day, you used to go to the bank, take your gun out and hit someone in the head, meaning you had a physical presence that could be traced. Now, a cybercriminal can pass through 50 IP addresses in a blink of an eye and can be placed anywhere.”

Focusing on smart cities – where power devices, traffic lights, water treatment facilities are all interconnected and controlled online – the panel painted a bleak scenario in case of a cyber-attack. “As fantastic, efficient, and forward looking a smart town is, all this technology poses some scaring risks. An important place like Manhattan could be shut down at once if the city’s main control is hacked,” said Swartwood.

But why is this even possible? According to the expert, “It’s difficult for people to grasp the fact that there’s a huge difference between the computer that sits on your desk and the system that is operating the water treatment plant that is feeding water into your city and your home because these systems are long-term, they were built to last for decades, and your computer is designed to last three years,” he said

In Swartwood’s words, “A lot of these systems were designed to last 50 years. And there is no virtual security on most of the hardware because it was not thought of when these systems were designed, some even 60 years ago. The only thing you can literally do is what we call forklift-replace, where you have to take the affected part out and put a new piece of equipment in. There are no patches or fixes like companies such as Microsoft do with your computer at home or work.”

Pang agreed. “Even with the best monitoring, companies often times don’t even know they have been hacked. Basically everything online is now vulnerable,” she concluded.

At the conclusion of the conference, it was clear to participants that to counter the new threats, it is paramount to promote regional collaboration and integration among law enforcement agencies, public security agencies, and intelligence partners. It is also necessary to develop a global geopolitical map of terrorism, transnational crime and other related security threats to promote education and training in matters of counter-terrorism and global security if we want to live in a more peaceful world, Rolling Eyes like Lindley said.

FRANCE : PROJET DE LOI « EGALITE ET CITOYENNETE » : POUR LA « JUSTICE », FAISONS TAIRE INTERNET

Publié par wikistrike.com sur 10 Octobre 2016, 06:03am

Catégories : #Politique intérieure, #Science - technologie - web - recherche




Faire taire Internet ! On connaît ce rêve qui s'empare régulièrement des élus de la République, ces grands donneurs de leçons dont la bulle éclate régulièrement à cause de la liberté d'expression sur Internet. Il ne se passe pas une session parlementaire sans que le législateur ne tente une manœuvre pour pénaliser et criminaliser l'usage d'Internet qui déplaît tant. C'est encore le cas dans l'ubuesque projet de loi « égalité et citoyenneté » , un texte fourre-tout dont personne ne comprend ni le sens, ni la cohérence, ni l'unité. 

Les amendements liberticides du Sénat 


Le Sénat vient de durcir le texte adopté par l'Assemblée Nationale. Voici où nous en sommes 

- L'extension de l'interruption d'un service de communication en ligne par le juge des référés 

La commission spéciale salue l'extension proposée des délits de presse permettant l'extension de l'interruption d'un service de communication en ligne diffusant des propos de nature délictuelle. Cette procédure présente en effet l'intérêt de permettre une action du ministère public sans qu'il soit nécessaire d'avoir à agir contre l'auteur des propos incriminés, difficilement identifiable sur Internet. 

- La possibilité de requalification 

La commission spéciale a approuvé la possibilité de requalifier les diffamations et injures raciales, considérant que l'impossibilité pour le juge de requalifier les faits dont il est saisi contribue à affaiblir très substantiellement les mécanismes répressifs de la loi du 29 juillet 1881. 

Par l'adoption des amendements COM-199 et COM-272 de MM. Thani Mohamed Soilihi, Alain Richard et François Pillet, elle a étendu cette possibilité à l'ensemble des infractions de presse car limiter ce retour au droit commun de la procédure pénale à un nombre restreint d'infractions de presse, comme le propose le présent article, entraînerait un risque d'incohérence de la loi de 1881. Il est donc préférable de permettre au juge de requalifier tous les délits de presse dont il est saisi et il convient de supprimer le formalisme attaché aux qualifications initiales. 

- L'aménagement des délais de prescription 

La commission spéciale a approuvé la suppression de la restriction des actes interruptifs de prescription pour les délits de presse aggravés. Elle a également adopté les amendements COM-202 et COM-267 de MM. Thani Mohamed Soilihi et François Pillet visant à reporter le point de départ des infractions de presse commises sur Internet à la date à laquelle cesse la mise à disposition au public du message. 

Dans leur rapport d'information n° 767 (2015-2016) « L'équilibre de la loi du 29 juillet 1881 à l'épreuve d'Internet », nos collègues relevaient que le régime de la prescription des délits de presse semblait inadapté aux spécificités d'Internet. La difficulté d'identifier l'auteur des faits et de le poursuivre dans les délais de prescription ainsi que la sphère de diffusion des messages en ligne semblent justifier un traitement différencié pour le délai de prescription des infractions de presse sur Internet. 

Lors de l'examen de la loi pour la confiance dans l'économie numérique, le Parlement avait fixé le point de départ du délai de prescription d'un message diffusé exclusivement en ligne à la date de fin de sa mise à disposition au public. Cette disposition avait été censurée par le Conseil constitutionnel qui relevait que la différence de régime instaurée dépassait « manifestement ce qui serait nécessaire pour prendre en compte la situation particulière de messages exclusivement disponibles sur un support informatique ». Le Conseil constitutionnel avait néanmoins relevé que la « prise en compte de différences dans les conditions d'accessibilité d'un message dans le temps » n'était pas contraire au principe d'égalité » . 

- La réparation des dommages causés par les abus de la liberté d'expression 


La commission spéciale a également adopté deux amendements identiques COM-203 et COM-269 de MM. Thani Mohamed Soihili, Alain Richard et de M. François Pillet visant à permettre une réparation des préjudices nés des abus de la liberté d'expression sur le fondement de la responsabilité civile de droit commun et d'exclure toute uniformisation des procédures d'assignations civiles sur les contraintes de la loi du 29 juillet 1881. 

En effet, comme le soulignait le rapport de MM. Thani Mohamed Soihili et François Pillet relatif à l'équilibre de la loi du 29 juillet 1881 à l'épreuve d'Internet, « la Cour de cassation a progressivement appliqué aux assignations en matière de presse devant le juge civil, l'ensemble des contraintes procédurales de la loi du 29 juillet 1881 ». En outre, la commission spéciale a adopté deux amendements identiques COM-200 et COM-265 de MM. Thani Mohamed Soihili, Alain Richard et de M. François Pillet visant à supprimer l'automaticité de la fin des poursuites en cas de désistement du plaignant. 

Le rapport d'information précité soulignait que « l'extinction des poursuites entrainée par le désistement de la partie poursuivante fait courir un double risque d'instrumentalisation de la juridiction et de confusion de la politique pénale » et en proposait la suppression. La victime dispose en effet, par le biais de la plainte préalable, de la garantie de savoir qu'aucune action ne peut être intentée sans son accord. De plus, au regard de l'augmentation du contentieux de la presse, il semblerait par ailleurs justifié de permettre aux juridictions de définir une politique pénale cohérente. 

Enfin, votre commission spéciale a adopté deux amendements identiques COM-201 et COM-266 de MM. Thani Mohamed Soihili, Alain Richard et de M. François Pillet visant à déterminer un délai fixe entre la délivrance d'une citation et l'audience de comparution, en supprimant la règle de l'ajout d'un jour supplémentaire par 5 myriamètres, soit 50 kilomètres de distance. 

Donc, partout, de la pénalisation, de l'aggravation des peines, de l'intimidation contre la liberté d'Internet. 

Pourquoi Internet dérange les élus ? 

Louis XVI avait connu l'inconfort des clubs, des sociétés, des loges maçonniques, qui l'avaient déstabilisé. La France d'Ancien Régime découvrait alors la liberté d'expression et le pouvoir en mesurait peu à peu les dégâts. Cela ne signifie pas que la Révolution trouve son origine dans ces formes nouvelles d'expression. Mais il est acquis que, face à un régime moribond, la réaction politique n'aurait pas pris la même forme « républicaine » sans l'intervention de ces milliers de sociétés qui véhiculaient l'idéologie des Lumières. 

François Hollande et les élus qui l'entourent découvrent peu à peu Internet et la libération de la parole qu'il permet. Souvent, les élus, qui sont majoritairement coupés de la réalité économique, sous-estiment le poids du Net et restent accrochés à la civilisation du papier comme des berniques à leur rocher. Et soudain, ils découvrent qu'Internet les a visés et mis en cause, a rompu le ronron que les subventions à la presse permettent encore si souvent de maintenir. 

Et cela, c'est insupportable ! 

L'exemple de l'affaire Cahuzac 

Prenons, au hasard, l'affaire Cahuzac. Aurait-elle existé sans Mediapart et ses révélations ? Non, évidemment, et c'est bien cette obsession-là que le législateur a en tête lorsqu'il cherche à multiplier les contraintes qui pèsent sur Internet. Il ne peut s'agir d'une attaque de front, qui serait à coup sûr censurée par le Conseil Constitutionnel.

typ1 a écrit:


En revanche, sous couvert de lutte contre le racisme, le sexisme, et autres mauvais prétextes, il s'agit bien entendu de donner la possibilité d'intimider la presse numérique, souvent très désargentée par rapport aux groupes subventionnés. L'enjeu, là encore, n'est pas d'établir la justice, mais de dissuader ceux qui s'expriment sur Internet de remettre en cause le régime et les sornettes qu'il propage pour légitimer son existence.


Avec le projet de loi Égalité et Citoyenneté, l'objectif est bien de permettre à tous les puissants d'intimider leurs détracteurs numériques, en permettant de multiplier les procédures contentieuses coûteuses, et en réduisant les chances, pour les internautes, de gagner ces dossiers. Dans le cas d'une affaire Cahuzac, le ministre doit pouvoir (dans l'esprit des élus) disposer d'un arsenal juridique capable d'assécher la trésorerie du site qui le dénonce, même si ce site dit la vérité. 

Faire taire les critiques plutôt que réformer 


Intuitivement, nous comprenons tous la mécanique intellectuelle des parlementaires qui tentent de peser de tout leur poids pour faire taire le net. À la différence de la presse écrite, qui dépend des subventions publiques pour sa survie, Internet est libre, et donc dangereux. Face à des institutions qui se battent farouchement pour préserver leurs privilèges obsolètes (on se souvient ici des trésors d'ingéniosité développés par Claude Bartolone pour empêcher la publication du patrimoine des députés), au lieu d'y renoncer et de répondre aux attentes de la société civile, celle-ci n'a pourtant pas le choix. Elle doit faire valoir son droit d'inventaire et elle utilise Internet pour le faire. 

Les élus peuvent avoir l'illusion qu'ils pourront préserver leurs avantages par l'intimidation. Ils ont mal compris ce qu'était Internet. De ce point de vue, il y a, chez nos élus, la même incompréhension du monde qui les entoure que celle des députés de 1945 face à la décolonisation. 

Un combat d'arrière-garde 

On peut, bien sûr, croire que la loi arrêtera le progrès des libertés. On peut, quand on est député, préserver son petit pouvoir et son illusion d'être important sur le dos de la société tout entière, en lui faisant perdre du temps. Incontestablement, la loi Égalité et Citoyenneté peut retarder la disparition des privilèges. Mais c'est un combat d'arrière-garde car, tôt ou tard, la liberté triomphera et les scélérats seront renversés. Leur disparition sera d'autant plus brutale qu'ils auront voulu la freiner arbitrairement.

L'UNION EUROPEENNE PART A L'ATTAQUE DE LA «PROPAGANDE» DE DAESH ET... DE LA RUSSIE


10 oct. 2016, 22:51


 Source: Reuters

Les succès d'audience des médias russes, dont RT, font visiblement peur au parlement européen au même titre que Daesh. Aussi, La commission des Affaires étrangères du parlement appelle à contrer la «désinformation» russe et se doter de moyens.

Dans une résolution votée ce 8 octobre, la commission des Affaires étrangères du parlement européen appelle à mieux combattre la «propagande» que distillent, selon elle, la Russie tout autant que l'organisation terroriste Daesh.

«Nos sociétés sont la cible d'une propagande hostile et de désinformation à la fois de la part du Kremlin mais aussi d'acteurs non-étatiques comme Daesh», prévient Anna Fotyga, le rapporteur du comité des Affaires étrangères du parlement européen. «Ce rapport est une étape très importante afin d'éveiller les consciences», poursuit-elle, «le parlement européen ne peut rester inactif concernant l'enjeu vital de la sécurité de l'Union européenne».



En cela, l'Union européenne emboîte le pas aux Etats-Unis : tandis qu'Hillary Clinton appelait les médias américains à se mobiliser contre la «désinformation» russe, le Pentagone identifiait en juillet dernier la Russie au même titre que l'Etat islamique comme les plus grandes menaces pour les Etats-Unis.

L'Etat islamique et la Russie sur le même plan

Pour la commission européenne des Affaires étrangères, les choses sont simples : d'un côté, la Russie cherche à diviser, tandis que Daesh s'est donné comme cible privilégiée l'Union européenne : «le gouvernement russe emploie de façon agressive tout une panoplie de moyens et d'outils, tels des think tanks, des chaînes de télévisions en plusieurs langues, comme par exemple Russia Today, et des pseudo agences de presse, ainsi que les réseaux sociaux». Tout ça pour mettre en péril, explique la commission, «les valeurs démocratiques et diviser l'Europe».

Une soif de chaos finalement pas très éloignée de celle des djihadistes amateurs de décapitation de Daesh à en croire les députés européens. Toujours selon la résolution de la commission, l'Etat islamique aussi mène une campagne de propagande dont le but est de susciter la «haine contre les «valeurs européennes».
L'Union européenne déclare la guerre de l'information

Aussi, devant le danger que représente le prosélytisme russe, la commission a lancé en août dernier une task force de «réponse rapide» afin de contrer ce que les députés européens considèrent comme de la désinformation.


«Les médias dominants ont peur de RT car de plus en plus de gens se tournent vers son bon sens»

La nouvelle cellule, qui fait partie du Service d'action extérieure européen (EEAS) comprend une dizaine de locuteurs russes issus des Etats membre de l'Union ainsi que des professionnels chevronnés des médias. En clair, des personnes sachant manier la communication, les mots et la rhétorique.

Mais pour autant, la commission des Affaires étrangères ne souhaite pas utiliser les viles méthodes de l'adversaire : «Contrer la propagande par de la propagande est contre-productif», explique cette dernière dans sa résolution. Pour contrer la désinformation des terroristes et des Russes, les députés européens comptent plutôt sur des informations «positives» ainsi que sur l'éducation des masses afin de rendre les citoyens européens capables de discerner entre le Bien et le Mal.

La résolution suggère d'ailleurs comme piste de resserrer la collaboration de l'Union européenne avec l'OTAN, une organisation militaire créée du temps de la guerre froide lorsque les «bons» et les «méchants» étaient clairement identifiés, qui lui a survécu, tout en en gardant le souvenir.

ALERT! UN BANS REPORTERS FROM CLIMATE CONFERENCE FOR 'HAVING WRONG OPINION'

By David on 20 October 2016 GMT Planetary changePolitical Manipulation



‘The United Nations has refused to accredit three of our journalists, blacklisting us from covering the upcoming global warming conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

The three banned journalists are full-time professionals: Sheila Gunn Reid, our Alberta bureau chief and best-selling author; and Meaghan MacSween, a producer, formerly with Global News and Sun News Network; and Alex Jones, our cameraman and editor, also formerly of Sun News Network.

These are total pros, with years of journalistic experience amongst them.

Here’s the UN’s one-line excuse: we are “advocacy journalists”, a term they do not define and has not to our knowledge been used by the UN before. They don’t even have the courage to sign their mealy-mouthed rejection letter.’

‘NOT IF, BUT WHEN’: NSA OFFICIAL DISCUSSES IMPORTANCE OF CYBER VIGILANCE

By Amaani Lyle DoD News, Defense Media Activity

WASHINGTON, Oct. 20, 2016 — In the wake of major intrusions into U.S. government computer networks over the last 24 months, the National Security Agency’s deputy national manager for national security systems outlined his agency’s role in developing cyber defense mitigations, and its critical response to public- and private-sector cyber incidents.

During his remarks Oct. 18 at the American Enterprise Institute, Curt Dukes offered an inside look at NSA’s incident-response work, and described the agency’s way ahead in improving government cyber defense in the aftermath of intrusions at the Office of Personnel Management, State Department, DoD’s Joint Staff and two commercial companies that conducted background checks for the U.S. government.

“The adversary took advantage of poorly secured, poorly patched systems,” Dukes said. “Once they had that initial foothold, they elevated privileges and then moved to mission objective, which was exfiltration of personally identifiable information, exfiltration of intelligence, or in some cases, the actual destruction of the host.”

Raising Costs to Adversaries

With so much at stake, Dukes said U.S. vigilance of computer networks is vital, and ultimately needs to stack the odds against cyber attackers.

“[An adversary] could easily attack us [and] achieve mission objective … so I want to raise the cost to the adversary,” he said. “By the time we actually respond to an intrusion -- it takes hours to days -- by then, in cyber time, an adversary has already met their objective.”

Dukes explained typical cyberattack life cycles and various mitigations that he said will force adversaries to alter their intrusion methods, while helping industry to better prepare the U.S. government and military for those types of attacks at each step of the cycle.

As networks become increasingly interconnected, Dukes said, adversaries will find proportionately more exploitation opportunities. He maintains that it pays to invest in network defense.

“Look at what we currently spend in remediation for the [Office of Personnel Management] breach … if we had put just put one-tenth of that into good security at the very beginning, we’d have been much better prepared for any type of attack in that regard,” Dukes said of the 2015 intrusions that cost the government millions to address and impacted millions of current, former and prospective federal employees and contractors. “There’s an imbalance right now in what we spend on offense capabilities, and what we spend on defense.”

Cyberattack Lifecycles

The cycle, Dukes explained, begins with an initial exploitation of open-source literature or the defense industrial base. When a vendor wins a contract, that information becomes publicly available and adversaries use a phishing attack, such as crafting emails that appear to come from a senior official.

“They want you to either click on that link or open that attachment,” he said, “and this creates a classic spear-phishing avenue that they’re going to continue to use until we actually remove that as a capability for them.”

Dukes also described “watering holes,” in which adversaries lead unsuspecting users to a site they’ve already corrupted. “From that point,” he said, “they can then put the initial install onto your device, and get access through a classic thumb drive or some type of media.”

And, while these vulnerabilities help cyber attackers gain access to very basic network levels, their next move is to establish persistence, Dukes explained.

“It gives them the ability to have multiple ingress and egress points,” once they establish a virus and assesses to a network and its connectivity, Dukes said. “So they’ve maybe found that host, but they’ve already moved to other hosts and to multiple ways in and out of the network.”

But entry points, he noted, are only part of the problem.

“Once they understand your system, if you’re not particularly well-patched or configured, then, they’re going to [seek] privileged escalation [and] they can then download tools … or hide inside normal traffic,” he added.

And that “normal traffic,” Dukes said, can include secure websites or encrypted web mail, which appears innocuous -- until it isn’t.

“Defense tools will not be able to protect you,” he said. “They basically ‘own’ you at that point in time.”

Dukes recounted the OPM intrusion had multiple ingress and egress points. “They had the initial attack,” he said, “then they moved laterally across it, and it became very difficult for network defenders to actually find them and eradicate them from that network.”

As a result, he said, NSA network defenders mapped an objective attack life cycle, consisting of phases including intelligence collection, intellectual property collection, and destructive programs such as ransomware.

“It doesn’t matter whether it’s a foreign nation such as Russia, China [or] Iran” Dukes said. “It could even be a terrorist organization. It could be a criminal network. They tend to follow the exact same life cycle in that regard.”

Life Cycle Mitigation Techniques

To mitigate the attacker’s life cycle, he said, NSA implemented anti-exploitation features in a Windows environment, which, along with a secure host baseline, is now core to the Windows 10 operating system. NSA also developed an application whitelist of known and trusted websites that can be refined over time, Dukes said.

Additionally, the Defense Department implements a host-based security or intrusion prevention system, for daily antivirus protection through assessing an adversary’s ability to attack, he said.

About five years ago, Dukes said, the antivirus industry changed technology by moving host reputation services to a cloud-based presence, allowing network defenders the ability to globally detect malware.

“Adversaries like to hide and fake who they actually are, so with reputation service, you can check what websites and [internet protocol] addresses map back to,” he said. “It’s a pretty impactful tool.”

Aside from antivirus protection, Dukes praised controlled administrative privileges.

“You want to limit the number of folks that actually have admin privileges on your network,” he said. “By doing that, you reduce the ability for an adversary to find that one weak host to take advantage of.”

Not If, But When

Dukes asserts that it’s not a matter of if an adversary will attack, but when, so he emphasized the value of network segregation and offline backup.

“By only allowing certain folks certain access to certain parts of the network, you limit the damage that the adversary can do on your network, and you limit their ability for them to achieve their mission in that regard,” Dukes said. “If something happens, have a backup copy of files whether daily, weekly, biweekly or monthly -- you have to be ready to reinstall should some unforeseen event occur.”

Overall, Dukes said, NSA has supported the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Bureau of Investigation and other agencies through requests for technical services to examine life cycles and host mitigation techniques that secure national security systems, and the same guidance applies to both commercial industry and home users.

“As a nation we have to rethink how we’re actually organized when we do cyber defense to protect the whole of the nation -- not only government, but also our key industry sectors,” Dukes said.”

GENEVA (Sputnik) — Prior to being interrupted, Borodavkin criticized the special UNHRC session on Aleppo called by the United Kingdom for ignoring the extended humanitarian pause in Aleppo and for aiming to protect terrorists.

"We have to state that both the session and the draft are a part of information war which essentially aims to justify jihadists and their actions," Borodavkin said during the session.

The HRC President repeatedly called on Borodavkin to finish before turning off his microphone without warning.

A "humanitarian pause" was introduced in Aleppo at 08:00 local time (05:00 GMT) on Thursday to ensure the safe evacuation of unarmed militants, and civilians from eastern Aleppo via eight designated corridors. Later, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that Moscow had decided to extend the humanitarian pause in Aleppo for another 24 hours.

NSA DEFENSE CHIEF IMAGINES A CYBER RESPONSE WITHOUT BORDERS

The U.S. government ought to consider forging stronger ties between agencies that manage cybersecurity, including possibly unifying their cyber defense components in a single agency, the National Security Agency's top cyber defender said today.

Combining aspects of NSA, the FBI and the Homeland Security Department into one cyber defense organization would give cyber defenders a clearer picture of what they’re up against when government computer networks are breached and it would speed up response times, Curtis Duke, NSA’s deputy national manager for national security systems, told an audience at the American Enterprise Institute.

“I’m now firmly convinced that we need to rethink how we do cyber defense as a nation,” he said.

Currently, NSA defends the government’s national security systems against cyberattacks. DHS is in charge of defending non-national security systems and the FBI investigates the criminal aspects of cyberattacks.

DHS typically requests NSA’s help when the government is responding to a major attack such as the 2015 breach of sensitive records about 21.5 million people from the Office of Personnel Management. But it can take days or even a week before government officials complete the paperwork to get NSA on site, Dukes said.

That means NSA investigators lose time and precious insights, he said.

Investigations are further delayed while the three major cyber departments figuring out who should take the lead and what their priorities are, he said.

“Who’s going to be in charge? Is it always going to be a criminal matter? Or, when it’s non-national security is it DHS and when it’s national security is it NSA?” he said, laying out the difficulty.

“By the time we get that all sorted out, we’re at a disadvantage when it comes to an adversary,” he said.

As a possible model for combining agencies’ cyber capabilities, Dukes suggested Britain’s National Cyber Security Centre where cyber defenders with the British spy agency GCHQ provide defense for the entire government.

Any realignment of cyber responsibilities that significant in the U.S. would require action by Congress. The Obama administration has made smaller moves to unify cyber operations, such as launching the Cyber Threat Intelligence Integration Center in 2015, which shares cyber threat information, such as known software vulnerabilities, throughout government.

Dukes also bemoaned the poor state of government cyber defenses during his speech at AEI and during a question and answer session that followed. He noted that all major U.S. government breaches during the past year relied on software vulnerabilities that were already known and could have been patched.

“In the last 24 months, OPM, [the Executive Office of the President] and the State Department weren’t particularly well protected, so the adversary didn’t have to use a zero day,” he said referring to software vulnerabilities that aren’t known by the manufacturer or by cyber defenders. “They could use a known exploit that they knew had not had a patch installed.”

Duke’s goal, he said, is to “raise the cost to the adversary. They’ll, then, have to start actually using zero days against us,” he said.

Dukes declined to say whether a collection of zero days and other hacking tools recently disclosed by a group called Shadow Brokers is the same collection allegedly stolen by former NSA contractor Harold T. Martin III who was arrested in August.

He noted that Cisco and other companies have patched vulnerabilities exposed by that leak.

MAJ: Confirmation ? France2 n'a pas parlé du mouvement ce soir au 20h, n'en faisant qu'une brève.
 
Nous venons de recevoir un email inquiétant d'un journaliste qui désire rester anonyme de France Télévisions qui nous confie sa stupeur de voir le mouvement des policiers censuré suite à une décision qui, semble-t-il, vient de très haut. Selon lui, plus aucun reportage n'est autorisé, c'est du moins ce que la missive ordonne.

Plusieurs pages Facebook ont aujourd'hui été fermées sans aucune sommation et nous apprenons ce soir qu'il a été donné ordre à France Télévisions de ne plus communiquer sur le mouvement ni aujourd'hui ni demain, ni de rapporter ultérieurement leurs propos . Cette dernière information semble incroyable et digne d'une dictature. Pour le moment, nous ignorons si le groupe public respectera la consigne, mais une chose est certaine, François Hollande conduit la France à la guerre civile.

Taire cette Police peut-il mettre une partie de la population dans la rue ?

La police manque de moyens et se met en danger, elle est en sous effectif, elle se trouve dévoyée dans son travail quotidien, c'est une réalité. Mais le mouvement inquiète le pouvoir qui craint que celui-ci puisse en éveiller d'autres, comme celui des pompiers, ou encore, donner à l'armée, qui ne roule plus qu'à moitié pour le Pouvoir, des idées plus radicales.

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (NNS) -- The U.S. Naval Academy (USNA) held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new $106-million Center for Cyber Security Studies Oct. 21.

Three hundred people attended the event, including academy officials, Navy leaders and members of the Maryland delegation, U.S. Senator Barbara Mikulski and U.S. Representatives John Sarbanes and C.A. "Dutch" Ruppersberger.

The center was established in recognition of the critical importance that cyber operations play in our national defense and to facilitate the expansion of the Naval Academy's cyber program, which includes a cyber operations major and required cyber curriculum for all midshipmen. Cyber operations is an interdisciplinary major that includes study in computer architecture, programming, data structures, networks, internet, database systems, information assurance, cryptography and forensics, as well as policy, law, ethics and social engineering.

The USNA groundbreaking reminds us of the significant investments the Navy continues to make to reduce vulnerabilities, detect intrusions and strengthen its depth in defense, as well as the crucial role that every Sailor plays in protecting Navy systems. The academy's close relationship with U.S. Fleet Cyber Command/U.S 10th Fleet, based at Fort Meade, Maryland, provides midshipmen with a unique operational perspective through guest lectures, mentorship and summer training opportunities. During National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, recognized throughout the month of October, Sailors are encouraged to learn more about the steps they can take to support the defense of Navy systems and prevent intrusions.

The academy is the first institution of higher learning in the country to require cyber security classes for all students. The multi-story academic building will have classrooms, a lecture hall, research labs, a secure compartmented intelligence facility space--required to allow midshipmen to handle classified information--and a research and testing tank to support the engineering and weapons lab. The state-of-the-art facility will enable midshipmen at the academy to get real-world training to prepare them for handling cyber threats, as Navy personnel are the first line of defense.

"This is a significant step in the process of streamlining our cyber education capabilities here at the Naval Academy with the needs of the fleet and Department of Defense," said Vice Adm. Ted Carter, Naval Academy superintendent. "This will be a state-of-the-art facility where our very best and brightest will get cutting edge training and education in the cyber field. I believe the building serves as yet another attraction the Naval Academy has to offer to future Midshipmen."

The building will be named after Rear Adm. Grace Hopper, known as the "mother of computing." Hopper was an American computer scientist who worked on the first computer, the Harvard Mark 1, during World War II. She was responsible for making computers more accessible by converting mathematical code into language.

Construction of the five-story building is expected to begin this winter and to be finished in September 2019.

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DOD PARTNERS WITH HackerOne AND SYNACK ON “HACK THE PENTAGON” FOLOW-UP SECURITY INITIATIVE


Press Operations
Release No: NR-373-16
Oct. 20, 2016


 The Department of Defense announced today that it has awarded a contract to HackerOne and Synack to create a new contract vehicle for DOD components and the services to easily launch their own ‘bug bounty’ challenges, similar to Hack the Pentagon, with the ultimate objective  to normalize the crowd-sourced approach to digital defenses.

At Secretary Carter’s direction, DOD hosted the first bug bounty program in the federal government last spring, and is prepared to launch a second, two-pronged effort in partnership with HackerOne and Synack.  Initiatives like bug bounties are designed to identify and resolve security vulnerabilities within DOD websites.

The original Hack the Pentagon program was lead by the Defense Digital Service, a team created by Secretary Carter last November to bring in private sector talent and best practices to transform the way DOD approaches technology. 

The DDS contracted with reputable bug bounty platform, HackerOne, for the pilot effort which allowed over 1,400 registered hackers to test the defenses of select DOD websites. The reported security gaps that qualified as a valid vulnerability were then rewarded with its corresponding bounty price.

As a result of this pilot, 138 unique and previously undisclosed vulnerabilities were identified by security researchers and remediated in near real-time by the Defense Media Activity. 

Following the success of Hack the Pentagon, Secretary Carter recognized the value of the program and directed other DOD components and military services to utilize the bug bounty concept as a “valuable tool in their own security toolkit.” 

This contract vehicle for a crowd-sourced security solution can also serve as a road map for other departments and agencies across the federal government to adopt and implement as well. 

The DDS will work with DOD components and external government agencies in a consultative role to advise on the execution of future programs.

DOD agencies, services or other interested parties can send contract inquiries to hackthepentagon [at] dds.mil.

STARTING IN DECEMBER, US JUDGES TO ALLOW HACKING COMPUTERS WORLDWIDE



03:15 29.10.2016(updated 10:34 29.10.2016)

 Amendments to Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure are set to go into effect on December 1, which will legalize the ability of the US government to hack into computers in any jurisdiction, even in foreign nations.

Congress has until that date to challenge the amendment, and now a group of 23 senators and representatives have sent a letter to US Attorney General Loretta Lynch expressing concerns over the potential privacy violations this amendment would allow.

“We are concerned about the full scope of the new authority that would be provided to the Department of Justice,” the bipartisan group of lawmakers wrote.

“We believe that Congress—and the American public—must better understand the department’s need for the proposed amendments, how the department intends to use its proposed new powers, and the potential consequences to our digital security before these rules go into effect.”

Democratic Senator Ron Wyden of Oregon, has introduced legislation to stop Rule 41, but has not yet garnered needed support.

“The Supreme Court in April approved amendments to Rule 41 of the federal rules of criminal procedure that would allow judges to issue warrants in cases when a suspect uses anonymizing technology to conceal the location of his or her computer or for an investigation into a network of hacked or infected computers, such as a botnet,” Reuters detailed.

Questions posed by lawmakers to Lynch included asking how the privacy of American citizens will be protected, and how damage to innocent people’s computers, servers, and networks would be prevented. They also inquired as to how law enforcement would be prevented from exploiting “forum shopping,” to seek judges or districts favorable to their cause.

Perhaps the biggest question, however, is whether agencies would notify innocent people whose computers are being used as botnets that their privacy had been invaded and their devices hacked. Since time is running out to stop Rule 41, lawmakers have requested a response to their inquiries within the next two weeks.

Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said that the UN Security Council is continuing consultations of the draft resolution on fighting the ideology of terrorism.

UNITED NATIONS (Sputnik) – The UN Security Council is continuing consultations of the draft resolution on fighting the ideology of terrorism, Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said.

"We are continuing consultations on our document in the Security Council … We are sure that the Security Council must take measures to counter the propaganda of terrorism disseminated worldwide. The ongoing rise of radicalization is a result of development of modern technologies. Young people are most vulnerable [to radicalization]," Churkin said on Monday.

He explained that the draft resolution focused on fighting propaganda of terrorism including actions that can be regarded as incitement of terrorism as well as on use of Internet and social networks.

The Russian draft resolution was introduced on October 4.
