This afternoon, Twitter and Facebook announced they identified and took down a significant disinformation campaign backed by the Chinese government and aimed at undermining the legitimacy of the protests in Hong Kong. Twitter removed 200,000+ accounts.

"As Twitter is blocked in PRC, many of these accounts accessed Twitter using VPNs. However, some accounts accessed Twitter from specific unblocked IP addresses originating in mainland China."
Twitter followed up this takedown with another major announcement: Twitter will no longer accept advertising from state-controlled (either financially or editorially) news media. Presumably, this should apply to RT, Sputnik, Xinhua, etc.

#Kidnappings Have Become The New Normal On Nigeria's #Security Landscape. In This Month Of August, There Are A Few Reasons Why The Entire Security Apparatus Of This Country Needs To Be Primed For Rapid Reaction Almost Right Across The Federation
1. There is expected to be a huge spike in interstate and interregional road traffic for the rest of this month. Most of the kidnappings now taking place appear to occur along our highways. The imperative is clear.
2a. Interstate and interregional travels are expected to attain a peak this weekend ahead of the Eid festivities which will take place on Monday and Tuesday next week.

The #bullshit that @thedemocrats are #dropping like #deuces is truly preposterous.

Last week, following the lamentable hearing that established the apparent mental decline of Robert #Mueller, @chuckschumer tried to set a trap for @senatemajldr Mitch McConnell.
The normal practice of the Senate as to consideration of proposed legislation is for the proposed bill to be read aloud (or reading waived) and then for the bill to be sent for consideration by one or more Senate committees that have jurisdiction over the subject of the bill.
One of the bills that @thedemocrats and the #lapdancemedia have described as having been blocked by McConnell addressed certain requirements for the use and retention of paper ballots and voting records and providing funding for the #ElectionSecurityCommission to make grants.

I read Kissinger, Schmidt and Huttenlocher’s @TheAtlantic article on the future of #AI, and given the article’s reach, I think it’s worth talking about a few things. Thread.
I recommend reading the piece which I find in parts very illustrative of the debate on #AI in the policy community (I’m defining ‘policy community’ very broadly here). theatlantic.com/magazine/archi…
Of course, the authors are highly respected (though not uncontroversial) individuals, and at least two of them know *a lot more* about #AI than I do, so I mean no disrespect. Still, a few things seem worth looking at closer.

There's so much going on here it's difficult to know where to start!

But start we must.

So, remember when the Brexiters said #Brexit was all about sovereignty & being free? Well, turns out America will decide your policies. You have no veto. Or vote. 1/8 telegraph.co.uk/business/2019/…
Secondly, Britain and the US are both members of the Five Eyes security alliance. Trump's administration would have shared their intel on #Huawei with the UK.

It is very telling that Britain did not buy in to Trump's anti-Huawei narrative that it poses a #security risk.

2/8
Trump's position was already undermined when he had said that @Huawei could be part of a trade deal with #China - apparently ignoring the "fact" that it is a #security risk. If it was such a risk, it would never be allowed to trade in the US. 3/8

@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @BudimanJayaS @vtchakarova @ContextMatters4 1. The bigger picture: Most of the #US #Tech-tools you use have or build-in #spyware or can easily be #hacked - #Windows has backdoors, which can be used to access your system, your #iPhone (#spyphone) can be hacked with just bluetooth (giving away location, address-book, calls).
@ParthapratimKh3 @AkbAsis @barua_ashish @PaulGambles2 @RonnieChopra1 @mektronik @MonetaryWonk @BudimanJayaS @vtchakarova @ContextMatters4 2. Your #laptop has backdoors giving access to #camera & voice (and do you use #fingerprint-recognition? One more personal #data-set). Your #SmartTV has a backdoor & camera & #voicerecognition. Do you use #Alexa? Real people listen to your conversations!

Some of you might be aware; I have been on a 4 year quest to build a smarthome. I am using and sometimes hacking existing solutions in most cases. I found some glaring lapses of security and privacy. A thread on @Xiaomi/@XiaomiIndia #security #privacy #iot @internetofshit
First up; my favourite robot which keeps my home clean. The Roborock S55 uses SLAM technology with cameras & sensors to generate a model of the house. It cleans really well & it leaks even better as it doesn't use HTTPS to communicate. It misses its home and keeps calling back!
Next up; one of the cheapest smart cameras in the market. The Xiaomi XiaoFang WiFi camera does 1080p video and costs less than Rs. 1200. I have many around the house for security purposes. It is a great oxymoron as its a security device with no security.

... sometimes solving one problem begets another. #Igbo culture most laudably seems to be pushed by those in diaspora, as seen on the social media. However, 90% of what is shown is mainly #masquerading and #dances. Very beautiful. Moreover, there is need to emphasis other aspects
Like marriage, farming, food, poetry, arts & crafts, industry, commerce, architecture etc. There has been a great awakening; most nostalgia and sometimes, a relapse because one can't compete with global trends. Idolatry is on the increase pitched unto 'say' Omenala, our #culture.
African Traditional #Religion (ATR) especially as practiced by ndi Igbo was just a tip of the iceberg about their culture. It was the culture of a typical Igbo person not to go hungry, as such manliness, was measured by the number of yam tubers one had in his barn and other #farm

Thread on the @KotakMF #FMP saga; Attn: @IndiaSebi

Highlight is on an #AMC which, in an FMP, considers it #prudent to reduce the risk, of an asset, by accepting a riskier asset as #security; knowing, the first asset shall mature with the FMP, giving no time to act if defaulted.
We reserve further comment. We shall just answer few questions raised by #investors.

1. FMP has a #fixedhorizon, at the end of which investors expect their money back. Also, they expect not to lose money. Knowing these expectations, who decided to launch the FMP?
Ans:Kotak AMC
2. A high #yield #portfolio may be made in many ways. Risk can be protected by structuring deal in many ways. Who made a portfolio of high #coupon/yield (11%) #debt instruments by lending upto 40% to #borrowers against security of their companies #equity #shares?
Ans: Kotak AMC

👆#TurnKey,Inc.: #SEC turning the (same)key in the lock

Surprised that commentators think there is anything new in this decision. It is simply a different type of argumentation. It is for the first time a #negative #definition of #ICO #regulation by #securities#laws. Thread👇
👉1. In Munchee Inc., SEC claims (sec.gov/litigation/adm…):
⛔️Munchee has no viable product
⛔️tokens sold are not usable, but will possibly be in the future
⛔️ICO will fund the development of the project
⛔️MUN price will vary AND reasonable expectation of future profits
⛔️#profits (or losses) depend solely on efforts of #Munchee #managers
⛔️#marketing MUN token in the manner to induces the purchasers to believe there is a profit expected solely for buying MUN and reselling it later.
⚠️a positive definition -> this IS a security

So erschütternd die Ereignisse beim #Chemnitz/er FC um #Haller auch sind, Schlussfolgerungen müssen gezogen werden. Ein Thread über #Prävention, #Männlichkeit, den Tod der „alten Garde“, #Neonazis in #Security-Unternehmen, die Opfer rechter #Gewalt und #Demokratie.
#Prävention I: Fußballclubs sind zentrale Institutionen einer #Gesellschaft und tragen dazu bei, wie sich diese politisch entwickelt. Jeder #Verein kann #Demokratie fördern durch Bildungsangebote für #Fußballfans und die eigenen Mitarbeiter*innen.
Prävention II: Viele Clubs tun dies bereits durch #Aktionstage zu #Zivilcourage und #Gedenkstättenfahrten zur Unterstützung, Sensibilisierung und Vernetzung von Fans, die sich gegen Diskriminierung engagieren. Daraus können andere lernen. #nonazis

HOW TO TRACE A MISSING OR STOLEN PHONE

If you lose your mobile phone, you can trace it without going to the police.

Most of us always fear that our phones may be stolen at any time.

Each phone carries a unique
IMEI no. i.e. International Mobile Equipment Identity
No which can be used to track it anywhere in the world.

This is how it works:

1. Dial *#06# from your mobile.

2. Your mobile phone shows a unique 15 digit.

3. Note down this number at a secure place except in your mobile phone itself as this is the number which will help
trace your phone in case of theft.

4. Once stolen, just E-mail this 15 digit IMEI No. to cop@vsnl.net with details as stated below:

Your name:____________________
Address:______________________
Phone model:_________________
Make:_________________________

1/8: Thread about #privacy.

Say you're at a public event and there's a photo booth where you can have your picture taken and printed + sent to you by e-mail. You don't get more info than that.

Do you (or should you) expect your pictures to be publicly available on the Internet?
2/8: I was at this O'Learys bar with a @PepsiMAX sponsored event where you could see the original @ChampionsLeague trophy. @fotobaren had a photo booth where you could get a free print photo in front of the trophy.
Someone™ failed to inform that anyone could find the pix online.
3/8: When I was asked if I wanted the pic by e-mail I thought "I wonder if they got their #security in order". To keep it short; very easily I could see all 886 pics taken for the event in both Oslo and Bergen.

Do anyone in the pics know this? How long will they stay online?

#SecurityQuestions #Beware #BeAware #Risk #Security
A security question is a form of shared secret used as an authenticator.

It is commonly used by banks, cable companies and wireless providers as an extra security layer. - @Wikipedia
