Yesterday we released a NEW report #WhatWouldNoDealMean.

And, you've guessed it, this report is the subject of today's #ThursdayThread. 🧵

ukandeu.ac.uk/wp-content/upl… Image
.@BorisJohnson has said that no deal with the EU would be a “good outcome” for the UK.

This report highlights what it would mean in terms of trade, fisheries, connectivity, the impact on citizens, Northern Ireland, economics, security, foreign policy, politics and more.
On #trade, the two sides would revert to #WTO rules.

We’re talking tariffs, customs checks, and regulatory checks. In other words, increased hassle, increased time and increased costs for businesses trading with the EU.

@CSBarnard24 explains.

1) The first problem with research like this is that we, the public, have no agency to choose whether or not we wish to participate in this experiment—even though our taxes pay for the Commons where this will take place. #privacy #trust #security
2) This ‘experiment’ is inhumane to FB’s employees, who also have no choice in the matter and who, as part of their employment, are must comply. (See Applin and Fischer on Forced Compliance posr.org/wiki/Forced_Co… ) and our paper on workplace #surveillance posr.org/w/images/0/0d/…

2. We're asking @CASOSvote @AlexPadilla4CA & LA Supervisors @HildaSolis @mridleythomas @SheilaKuehl @SupJaniceHahn @kathrynbarger to repair the dangerous risky #Security flaws in the #VSAP system prior to any further certification. Petition here ctionnetwork.org/letters/la-vot… #LAVotes
3. What is wrong with the "Voting Solutions for All People?" It sounds so perfect. If only the system was as good as the name. A coalition of good govt groups signed a letter detailing some of the problems that need to be addressed: img1.wsimg.com/blobby/go/5275… #LAVotes #SecurityFail

मित्रांनो, काल मी कंगनाला दिलेल्या सुरक्षेबाबत व भारतात VIP ला दिली जाणारी सुरक्षा यासंदर्भात थ्रेड लिहीला होता..आज पंतप्रधान नरेंद्र मोदी यांच्या संरक्षण यंत्रणेवर किती खर्च होतो,मागच्या वर्षी तो किती होता..नक्की सामान्य जनतेचा किती पैसा सुरक्षेला जातो ह्याबद्दल..#म #मराठी #धागा Image
काल मी सांगितल्याप्रमाणे SPG(Special Protection Group) ही‌ रक्षा फक्त पंतप्रधान व माजी पंतप्रधान आणि त्यांच्या कुटुंबीयांना दिली जाते.SPG मध्ये एकुण ३००० commando आहेत.ते सर्व ज्युदो,कराटे आधुनिक हत्यारे वापरण्यात अतिशय निष्णात असतात.
तुम्हाला ऐकुन धक्का बसेल पण SPG वर Image
२०२०-२१ च्या अर्थसंकल्पात पंतप्रधानांच्या सुरक्षेसाठी वर्षाला '५९२.५ कोटी' रू ची तरतूद केली आहे म्हणजे दिवसाचा खर्च हा जवळपास
'१.६२ कोटी' रू आहे.हा मागील वर्षीपेक्षा १० टक्के ज्यादा खर्च आहे.(५४०.१६ कोटी रू) एवढा अवाढव्य खर्च आपल्या पंतप्रधानवर होतो आणि सर्वात आश्चर्यकारक गोष्ट

Thread 1.
#LosAngeles Done listening to 3 hours of testimony & public comments about the LA Voting System. Incredible that in all that time not a single member of the public testified with any kind of enthusiasm for the voting system. #VSAP #SecurityFail #LaVotes #SMARTelections
2. Instead ppl noted:
- The #VotingMachine can print on the paper ballot after the voter casts it potentially changing votes.
- The method that #security experts recommend: #HandMarkedPaperBallots is not being offered.
- the system is tabulating #QRcodes, something banned in CO
3. I noted: The new system makes it impossible to audit and/or recount. A group that wanted to recount a race that was won by 16 votes was unable to - because of the cost estimate of 200k due to the way the new system stores ballots. presstelegram.com/2020/05/11/lon… #DontCertifyVSAP

The #UKGovernment Torture Report

This is a very short overview of what the #UKAuthorities have done in the case.

#PraiseTheLORD #PraiseGod #Borisjohnson #Downingstreet #PritiPatel #UKParliament #Dailymail
In 2005, I set up a business selling CDs, namely mixtape CDs after graduating from Uni.

In 2006, my home was raided & my business was stopped. They said the CDs I was selling were in breach of copyright.
It was a complete shock as the exact same CDs I was selling were prevalent on most high streets and supermarkets. They were selling in their thousands in places such as #Tesco & #HMV. And #Woolworths were the actual UK Distributor of these CDs.

New article with @sostapel:
'Cooperation and Conflict at the #HornOfAfrica: A New Regional Bloc between #Ethiopia, #Eritrea & #Somalia and Its Consequences for #EasternAfrica' #HoAC
In: #AfricaSpectrum (@GIGA_Institute; @SAGECQPolitics) #openaccess
journals.sagepub.com/doi/10.1177/00…
In January 2020, Eritrea, Ethiopia, and Somalia proposed to form a new regional bloc, occasionally referred to as the 'Horn of Africa Cooperation' (HoAC). The proposed the HoAC would be the 23rd (!) #RegionalOrganization in #Africa. #regimecomplexity #HornOfAfricaCooperation
Our article assesses which factors have contributed to making this proposal and contemplates potential effects for the complex #security challenges, political tensions among the neighbours, and existing institutional environment at the Horn and the #EasternAfrica.

let's talk about software supply chain #security for a moment #SSCM #SBOM

I peeked at the requirements for hashicorp/vault for no particular reason - it was included in a sample for something else i'm testing

here's a count grouped by author
of 148 packages, only 43 are maintained by hashicorp 🤔

many by individual github users
some by chinese-owned companies 😕
some appear abandoned (>3yr since updates, no activity by author)

#HackerSummerCamp friends, how do you feel about this?
to be fair, I'll give the same treatment to kubernetes

of 131 packages, 29 are maintained by k8s itself

I see a lot more company names in here as maintainers

... but still a lot of individuals ...

As the ransomware used on Garmin did not have known weaknesses or decryptors, Garmin probably negotiated with them. They might have paid the full $10 mil though.

#cybersecurity #ransomware #security #CISO #CISOthoughts

bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/…
And the provided decryption software included a number of security software that would help Garmin reduce the potential of another ransomware attack.
It is always good to have a customer centric focus, and even if you are peddling malware, it still behooves you to act professionally. These malware service providers are very professional. 10/10. Would pay again. 😂🙈😎

I wanted to share with you some details about the #TouchID security system, implemented across 2013 #iPhone 5S all the way up to 2020 iPhone SE 2nd Gen (and many #iPad and #MacBook models as well).

1/ TouchID is a security system handled by Secure Enclave Professor (SEP).
2/ it has seen improvements over the years.
Technically speaking, TouchID is nothing more than an under-glass Camera that captures pictures of the finger used to unlock the device. The metal ring around the button is capable of detecting the finger.
3/ Apple is probably working on a solution to move it under display.
Left: under display TouchID patent (Apple)
Right: Touch ID original patent

1. NY just passed #AVR Automatic Voter Registration. @StandUpAmerica estimates this will add over 1Mill voters to the #NY rolls. Wouldn't it be great to know that those votes were going to be counted correctly? But w/new #VotingMachines being certified we will not know.
2. #Security experts like @rad_atl & @kskoglund & auditing expert @philipbstark say that the hybrid #VotingMachines are not secure and "No form of audit can confirm they functioned correctly." (Quote from Dr. Stark). Read a paper he co-authored. stat.berkeley.edu/~stark/Preprin…
3. One #Hybrid #VotingMachine is already certified in #NY. It's the Dominion ICE & is in at least 15 counties including #Westchester County where they're trying to buy 100s more. In the Westchester #primary the ICE hybrid voting machines created 4 hour lines. via @IndivisWstchr

According to #Stratfor, #JulianAssange is a victim of #FVEY (#USA) #government security agencies' #targetingprograms, which illegally framed #Assange for crimes he did not commit.

#FreeASSANGE Image
According to #ICWatch's aggregated #LinkedIn profiles, #FVEY security community's CVs indicate "#honeypots"/"#roleplayers" are on the government payroll...to entrap people.

icwatch.wikileaks.org Image
#FVEY govt. security agencies conspired with transnational corporations to attack #JulianAssange's finances. Attacking finances is just one of many criminal tactics that #CIA/#FBI/#DHS, etc. use to illegally harm individuals' incomes, without due process.

#Thread on Mushaal Mullick
1.
Mushaal Mullick is the wife of #terrorist turned separatist leader #YasinMalik . A #Pakistani by birth, she is often seen on SM expressing her discontent on how Indian Armed Forces are dealing with situation in #Kashmir in a rather exaggerated manner
2.
Going through all her self-made videos, one can’t help but appreciate her ‘skills’ to turn any international day,event/birth/death #anniversary into an agenda to malign the Indian #armedforces ...
3.
If someone tells you that Mushall Mullick has uploaded a video, expect nothing else but jabber about #Indian Govt & its #Security Forces. However, it’s not very difficult to understand the reason behind her almost daily, monotonous anti-India rants
