SG: Withdrawn.

Justice Joseph: Why has this been referred?

Divan: There were no questions formulated of reference. There is a messaging company called WhatsApp. There have been orders against it by HCs, questions only raised on maintenability.

🔥PRIVACY SCOOP: How ANYONE can track your car using only your license plate: a thread! 🧵👇
#osint #privacy (1/X)
Between June and Sept '22, I challenged 120 car owners to track their location using their license plate. Over 100 days, I was able to track down 29% using three different methods. The issues discovered are widespread and there’s no easy fix - so I made one! (2/X)
Method #1: registering the target's license plate in parking apps and enabling license plate recognition (ANPR). I could add as many plates as I wanted. Doesn't matter if they already used parking apps: I could claim their plate as if it were my own.(3/X)…

Interesting #privacy and #AI project: someone has developed software to match up geolocated Instagram posts with open camera feeds (showing people before/after they posted their Instagram photos)
The AI software automatically identifying people and matching timestamps on Instagram posts, etc. Image
Has to be a popular location with live camera feeds that can be monitored, but interesting nonetheless. Image

1/ #Oregon Health Authority publishes latest draft #psilocybin rules to implement Measure 109. Some early thoughts: First, the rules allow for a variation of #microdosing. Clients could consume up to 5mg and potentially leave a center after 1 hour.…
2/ Under the draft rules, the minimum length of administration sessions would vary based on the dose of #psilocybin received. Clients consuming 5 - 10mg could potentially leave after 2 hours, and 15 - 25mg would require a minimum stay of 4 hours.
3/ The facilitator to client ratios will also change depending on the doses of #psilocybin received, ranging from a potential 8 clients to each facilitator for doses of 5 - 10mg to no more than 1 client for every facilitator for doses between 40 - 50mg.

Another great feature of @fraser_again on @TechNative discussing why #NFTs & #SBTs aren’t the best solutions for digital identity. Read the thread 👇…
From fraud through to #privacy issues, here are the top use cases that NFTs and SBTs fail to deliver on or would be better “augmented” by fit-for-purpose digital identity solutions, such as #SSI including #VCs.

👉 Using #NFTs to access Discord servers 👈

Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (#DAO) have started issuing NFT’s as identity proofs to access private channels. This did not stop the NFT’s from being sold and often leaves the person in the channel.

#Twitter #ShortenedURLs #Owly #OPSEC
A Brief Thread
-Twitter automatically shortens a URL and users can post a shortened link from or
- This creates two levels of tracking w/2 shortened URLs
- T.CO of Twitter does some analytics & tracking
- will be used as an example of the second short URL tracker. This tracker provides fingerprinting and supercookies to people who click on an URL ImageImage
#OPSEC #Privacy #ShortenedURLS
-@acfou PageXray is a helpful resource to see what type of tracking is occurring with an URL
In this ex. it shows that tracked user to the domain that fingerprints to WordPress that also fingerprints Image

First, they came for the crypto bros, and I didn't give a fuck about them because I assumed everything they were doing was wrong & illegal (despite critical advances made in open source computation at scale using encryption for integrity & end-user private key mgmt) #infosec
I'm writing this for my #infosec/#privacy audience who I hope will foresee the slippery slope between applying global sanctions to an individual vs. an audited, open source protocol, published as public contracts on a permissionless, decentralized blockchain/global state computer
This is seemingly uncharted territory.

🔥What are the 9 #GDPR principles and why they matter for you:
1. Lawfulness (Art. 5.1.a): your personal data can only be collected, processed or used according to what the law establishes. For example, Art. 6.1 specifies six situations in which your data can be processed lawfully, consent is one of them.
2. Fairness (Art. 5.1.a): tricky principle, as there is no express indication of its meaning in the GDPR. The @ICOnews says that it means that your data cannot be processed in a way that is unduly detrimental, unexpected or misleading to you. I am working on that in my PhD :)

Why you should avoid using Chinese phones and apps like Tiktok asap?

#deletetiktok #cybersecurity #privacy #securityawareness
If you care about your data privacy, it's high time we should take this issue seriously and avoid buying Chinese phones like Xiaomi, Realme, Oppo, OnePlus, Vivo, Huawei, etc.…
These are spying devices used for data collection by the Chinese govt. There are no proper privacy laws to protect user data. It's basically a surveillance state. Citizens don't have many rights to stand up against the authoritarian regime.…

These are the 23 reasons why #TikTok is problematic in terms of #manipulation, #addiction and #privacy & why #children and #teenagers should be kept away from it:

(for those interested: the full article about the topic, with all relevant links:…)
1- Reduced space for #autonomy and #choice; videos are pushed to the user since 1st use. In a web that respects human dignity, people - especially #children and #teenagers - should get used to choose and think about what they want to be exposed to
2- Increased potential of #manipulation and #exposure of younger and more impressionable audiences, as the content will be pushed to them and they will be hooked by age-inappropriate content (and be recommended more content like this)
