Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments Pine Gap’s new role as a war fighting command centre

http://www.alicespringsnews.com.au/20...

"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety."

(The quote by Franklin is often misapplied, it's more to do with raising taxes and funds for the war against the Indians and the French, but ya get the point.)

Apparently, Russia has this as a primary target.

Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments STUXNET: The Virus that Almost Started WW3

In June last year, a computer virus called Stuxnet was discovered lurking in the data banks of power plants, traffic control systems and factories around the world. Pandora's box has been opened; on the new battlefield the aggressors are anonymous, the shots are fired without starting wars and the foot soldiers can pull their triggers without leaving their desks. Last week the United States government announced they would retaliate to a cyber-attack with conventional force. The threat is real, and the age in which a computer bug could cost lives has begun.

The zero-day market has recently experienced an exponential growth with top exploit prices reaching the seven figures. Together with “standard” exploits affecting IT and end-users’ technologies, the black market is nowadays offering a new, widely-wanted and refined product: cyber weapons to target Industrial Control Systems (ICS), Critical Infrastructures, and Smart Cities environments.

https://www.forbes.com/sites/theyec/2..."


Could artificial intelligence play a role in detecting subtle and complex scams by people, businesses, gov, institutions or organisations that masquerade under a faux justification of benevolence and humanitarianism and cloak their real intent using the guise and emotional allure of it being for community, charity or family, and perhaps undermining, cheating and destroying other innocent individuals in the process?

Almost like a 'robbing Peter to pay Paul' scenario.

Can AI be used for fraud prevention? Yes! In this video, we'll go over the history of fraud prevention techniques, then talk about some recent AI startups that are helping business reduce credit card fraud. We'll break down what the different AI models that help with fraud prevention look like (decision trees, logistic regression, neural networks) and finally, we'll try it out on a transaction dataset.

Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments Hacked! Security and Survival in a Hyper-Connected World

Bruce Schneier is a fellow and lecturer at the Harvard Kennedy School and the Berkman-Klein Center for Internet and Society. He is a special advisor to IBM Security and a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Access Now, and the Tor Project. You can find him on Schneier.com and on twitter at @schneierblog

He is the author of Data and Goliath, Applied Cryptography, Liars and Outliers, Secrets and Lies, and Beyond Fear: Thinking Sensibly about Security in an Uncertain World. His new book is Click Here to Kill Everybody, which we discuss at length, as well as:

• How to protect yourself from being hacked and what to do if you are hacked
• Why companies do not invest more in software security
• The motivation of hackers: money, power, fun
• The probability of your car being hacked and driven into a wall
• The probability of planes being hacked and felled from the sky
• Edward Snowden and Wikileaks: hero or villain
• The Pentagon Papers and Daniel Ellsberg
• What would happen if the electrical grid was hacked
• Cyberdeaths (homicides done remotely over the Internet) and how the government will respond with regulations when it does
• If the government were to set a policy for the security level of an IoT device that can kill people, is there a maximum allowed probability that it could be hacked?

• The North Korean hack of Sony
• The Russian hack of the 2016 election and how to prevent that from happening again
• Why we’re still using paper ballots in our voting system rather than computers and ATMs like banks use.
• The lessons of Y2K for the coming AI apocalypse

That video ended on a worrisome note, mate. It began all rosy, then it ends with saying each robot guard can also impose "force multiplying physical deterrents" but that "it's not clear measures are"...and then the video just abruptly ends...almost as if to say: Expect to have hand to hand combat with a robot soon!

Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments Russia is planning to briefly disconnect from the internet | For a future cyber-war

Russia is planning to briefly disconnect from the internet as part of planning for a future cyber-war.

The test will mean data passing between Russian citizens and organizations stays inside the nation rather than being routed internationally.

A law mandating technical changes needed to operate independently was introduced to Russia's parliament last year.

The test is due to happen before 1 April but no exact date has been set.

I think there's more to him than meets the eye. He's definitely a patriot, but also has Western capitalistic values and tastes.

Detractors label him from being a gangster to Stalin's successor looking to revive Soviet Glory. At least one notable thing we can take from Putin, is that he doesn't want a WW3 scenario or at least open to dialogue to avert it beforehand, unlike some loonies or glory seeking Colonel Blimps on this side of the pond who would all too easily take us there.

If you were in his shoes what would you do, if surrounded and in charge of a dwindling empire?

Heavy is the head that wears the crown . . . .

He also has an absolute awareness of tech's prowess in the 5th dimension of cyber-war; probably a by product from former KGB years, as one of his assignments to Dresden was to steal advanced Western Tech or acquire blueprints(industrial espionage).

In fact he labelled hackers as the "new artists(or something to that effect)".

Iain McKenzie (Iain_mckenzie) | 1578 comments DEF CON 25 - Peyton Engel - Learning about Government Surveillance Software

Imagine that you're accused of a crime, and the basis of the accusation is a log entry generated by a piece of custom software. You might have some questions: does the software work? how accurate is it? how did it get the results that it did? Unfortunately, the software isn't available to the public. And you can't get access to the source code or even a working instance of the software. All you get are assurances that the software is in use by investigators around the globe, and doesn't do anything that law enforcement isn't supposed to be doing. Because you can trust the government, right?

Many organisations utilise surveillance teams and these may be in-house in the case of government agencies or third-party teams contracted for a specific task and their targets range from suspected terrorists to people accused of bogus insurance claims.
