 DSF Sportquiz & diverse Löcher 
Submitted by Moose on Tuesday, June 05, 2007 - 12:45   Personal
Wer kennt es nicht, das immer wieder erbauende Sportquiz auf DSF. Da werden Automarken geraten was das Zeug hält, erraten wird wohl eher nix.
Kein Wunder, bei klingenden Namen wie "Glas" oder "Wartburg" wird auch jeder Autonarr sofort hier schrein. Und ja, damit oute ich mich dass ich mir schon mal die Auflösung angeshen habe. Die Sendung hat einfach einen gewissen "erdenden" Effekt. Ich meine, da sitzen hundert tausende, wahrscheinlich ausschließlich Männer vor den TV Schirmen, starren auf irgendwelche (halb)nackten Frauen und versuchen ein unmögliches Rätsel zu lösen und das Beste: die sind (fast) alle wahlberechtigt!

 RTL Shop 
Submitted by Moose on Monday, June 18, 2007 - 01:36   Personal
Nachdem ich einen Eintrag über das DSF Sportquiz geschrieben habe, folgt jetzt der nächste Streich. Eigentlich sehe ich NTV (diverse Reportagen in der Nacht) um friedlich einschlafen zu können – automatische Abschaltung meines TVs aktiviert, und so schlafe ich immer schön neben Schwertransporten, Riesenbagger & Co. ein.

Nun läuft aber RTL Shop, dachte ich, ok, daneben kann man auch gut einschlafen.

Was hat sich getan bei mir? Nicht viel und doch eine Menge, einiges kann ich hier nicht, vieles will ich nicht erzählen, weil es einfach zu banal und uninteressant wäre!

 Part of Patriot Act struck down: ISPs must get court approval 
Submitted by m3 on Saturday, September 08, 2007 - 15:57   Disobey
A federal judge today struck down portions of the US Patriot Act, saying investigators must obtain court approval before they can order ISPs to turn over records without informing their customers.

Noting that the courthouse where he resides is several blocks from the fallen World Trade Center, the judge said the Constitution was designed so that the dangers of any given moment could never justify discarding fundamental individual liberties.

 Who Controls Your Television? 
Submitted by m3 on Saturday, September 08, 2007 - 16:04   Disobey
Currently, DVB standards are limited to getting TV signals to your house, but they do not limit what you do with those signals after they've entered the privacy of your home. Moreover, they do not require technology developers to pass a user-restriction litmus test before building new devices.

But that may soon change. Principally at the studios' behest, DVB has been working since 2003 on an elaborate television DRM scheme called Content Protection and Copy Management (CPCM). Its unparalleled restrictions include:

 Playstation 3 & FW 1.93 <-> Denon 3806 
Submitted by Moose on Friday, September 14, 2007 - 11:35   Hardware
So, jetzt ist es soweit, meine PS3 versteht sich seit dem letzten Update (1.93) nicht mehr mit meinem AV Receiver (Denon 3806).

Dieser Blog Eintrag dient eigentlich nur dazu, Gleichgesinnte die selbes Problem haben zu suchen, vllt. meldet sich jemand, hier sind meine Kontaktinformationen zu finden – klingt ein bisserl nach Singelbörse muss ich sagen ;).
Über Google konnte ich bisher nicht wirklich etwas Hilfreiches finden.

 Die Rückkehr des TPM 
Submitted by m3 on Sunday, September 23, 2007 - 17:16   Disobey
Intel's next-generation 'Eaglelake' chipset family, due for release next year, will feature a built-in data protection engine with the ability to encrypt all the files on your hard drive, the chip giant announced this week.
It calls the engine 'Danbury'. Together with an chipset-integrated Trusted Platform Module, Danbury will be part of Eaglelake chipsets for vPro-branded PCs.
Danbury provides a hardware encryption engine for drive-level data security. The encryption keys are created and maintained within the chipset itself, so there's no need to place them in memory where they could be accessed by malware.
Danbury ties into the TPM, which is one reason why Intel plans to move that module into the chipset packaging. Plenty of desktop and laptop PCs already contain a TPM, implemented as a separate chip. Integrating it will help reduce system costs.
Next-gen Intel vPro platform to get hardware encryption

Ahh, I can imagine the helpdesk calls. "Help, I forgot the password for my harddisk"! "Then you are screwed".

 Open Hardware/Software to Firewall Your RFID Tags 
Submitted by m3 on Tuesday, November 06, 2007 - 20:12   Disobey
The RFID Guardian project has released the hardware and software schematics for the latest version of its personal RFID firewall. The RFID Guardian is a device that detects all the RFID tags on your person (passport, transit pass, bank-card, toll-card, car keys, etc), and interdicts them so that they can't answer queries anymore. The Guardian can clone all of these tags, and emit their signal on demand, but unlike a dumb tag, the Guardian only emits when you tell it to, and gives you a central way to set and enforce policy about when you will be identified and by whom.

  How to Safeguard Your Privacy Online 
Submitted by m3 on Thursday, December 27, 2007 - 23:05   Disobey
So here are some ways to regain a reasonable facsimile of privacy on the Internet — or at least attempt to give marketers the most limited amount of personal information possible. Some of these are fairly practical and easily accomplished while others, admittedly, are way off the fairway and only for the serious privacy advocates and full-blown conspiracy theorists.

Tame:
  • Do not use desktop search tools like Google Desktop or Microsoft Desktop Search.
  • Do not use webmail from a service provider like AT&T, Google or Microsoft.
  • Do not use browser toolbars or desktop gadgets.
  • Remove all social network accounts.
  • Clear your browser cookies after every session.
  • Change your local username daily.
  • Use Opera. With Opera, you can mimic another browser’s identification string, which helps mask your browser’s settings and reduces the information that you send to a web site when you visit.
Just because you’re paranoid, doesn’t mean they’re not after you:
  • Do not make international phone calls.
  • Do not have a home broadband connection.
  • Use free Wi-Fi.
  • Install a host-based Intrusion Detection System (IDS) like OSSEC.

 The 2007 International Privacy Ranking 
Submitted by m3 on Tuesday, January 01, 2008 - 20:55   Disobey
Each year since 1997, the US-based Electronic Privacy Information Center and the UK-based Privacy International have undertaken what has now become the most comprehensive survey of global privacy ever published. The Privacy & Human Rights Report surveys developments in 70 countries, assessing the state of surveillance and privacy protection.

The new 2007 global rankings extend the survey to 47 countries (from the original 37) and, for the first time, provide an opportunity to assess trends.

The intention behind this project is two-fold. First, we hope to recognize countries in which privacy protection and respect for privacy is nurtured. This is done in the hope that others can learn from their example. Second we intend to identify countries in which governments and privacy regulators have failed to create a healthy privacy environment. The aim is not to humiliate the worst ranking nations, but to demonstrate that it is possible to maintain a healthy respect for privacy within a secure and fully functional democracy.
In comparison to 2006, Austrias position detoriated from "Adequate safeguards against abuse" to "Systemic failure to uphold safeguards". Austria is also mentioned in the listings for "Countries with the worst records" in the categories "Data-sharing" and "Leadership".

Data-sharing
  • Are there laws protecting against use of information for secondary purposes?
  • Has the government initiated plans for sharing personal information between government agencies?
  • Are companies required to hand information over to government?
Leadership
  • Has government signed on to bad international treaties? E.g. Council of Europe Cybercrime convention, treaty of Prum, etc. (in particular, the leaders of the Prum initiative were Germany, Austria, Belgium, Spain, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands)
  • Some countries because of their privacy commissioners are actually ambassadors of privacy but unfortunately this is rarely sufficient to counter-act bad government policies at the international level
Rationale for the 2007 ranking of Austria:
  • No explicit right to privacy in constitution but there are special laws for civil rights, including one for data protection; recent Supreme Court decisions are highly problematic
  • Data Privacy law does not apply equally to paper files; law is considered cumbersome by experts; also sectoral laws
  • Data Privacy Commission can bring civil and criminal provisions against institutions; but criticised for lack of independence
  • Prohibits use of genetic data by insurance companies
  • Medical data is treated as sensitive data by law
  • Legal requirement permitting Austrian military to request subscriber data from telecommunications providers
  • Centralisation of data on students that is stored for 60 years
  • Social security card with unique numbers but little other information is stored; number of abandoned initiatives including health data cards, or 'citizen card' have been abandoned; e-identity management system is heavily criticised
  • Judicial warrants for interception for serious crimes (10 years punishment or more)
  • CCTV and audio surveillance is now permitted where data is stored for 48 hours; but this has not been enforced adequately
  • Communications data is made available to copyright industry under Supreme Court decision
  • Postponed data retention
  • Matched DNA database with Germany in December 2006
