Australia: Unprecedented surveillance bill rushed through parliament in 24 hours.
The Australian government has been moving towards a surveillance state for some years already. Now they are putting the nail in the coffin with an unprecedented surveillance bill that allows the police to hack your device, collect or delete your data, and take over your social media accounts; without sufficient safeguards to prevent abuse of these new powers.
The Microsoft database hack shows that data stored in the cloud must always be encrypted end-to-end.
Security specialist company Wiz discovered a vulnerability in the Microsoft Azure infrastructure that enabled them to access, modify and delete data of thousands of Azure customers. Described as "the worst cloud vulnerability you can imagine", the security company was able to get access to any customer database that they wanted. This vulnerability is proof that data when stored in the cloud must be protected with end-to-end encryption at all times.
How the free web fuels conspiracy theories.
Automated ad displays enable shady players on the web not only display their content to targeted audiences, it even helps them make money and build a whole business based on sensationalism and fake news. Whether it's about climate change denial or vaccination conspiracies, automated advertising software funds producers of sensationalist content enabling them to thrive.
Rotten Apples: iOS 15, personal privacy, and the on-going fight against CSAM.
This fall, Apple is planning to release iOS 15 which will begin scanning your devices and iCloud for known images depicting the sexual abuse of minors. Apple is attempting to assuage the public and claims that these features will scan personal devices and cloud storage “while designing for user privacy.” Is this yet another case of invasive surveillance hidden under the guise of protecting the children or is Apple attempting to walk the fine line between preventing the spread of abusive material and protecting user privacy?
Online services may (and do) scan all of your messages. Here is how you can protect yourself!
Beginning of July, the European Parliament has adopted a derogation for the ePrivacy regulation that allows companies to scan all private messages of all EU citizens, including chat messages and emails. The only good news about this is that scanning of private messages is voluntary. We can guarantee that your Tutanota messages remain private and will not be scanned. Here is why this piece of legislation is frighteningly bad.
NSO's Pegasus Scandal: Zero-Day, Zero-Clicks, Zero-Privacy?
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it's another piece of surveillance software. This week we have been exposed to the Pegasus scandal. Pegasus is a piece of malware, publicly advertised and sold by the NSO Group that can infect mobile devices with little to no action required by the phone owner. The extensive eavesdropping made possible by Pegasus violates multiple laws. Thus, selling such tool must be banned - just like the trade in nuclear weapons is banned.

AN0M & Operation Trojan Shield is proof that a ban on encryption is not needed to catch criminals. Instead we need open source encryption for mainstream services!
In the early morning hours of June 8th, 2021 search warrants were executed around the globe and the users of custom devices with the encrypted messaging application AN0M were arrested on a wide variety of criminal charges. The application was developed by FBI, "secure" devices were distributed, and global law enforcement agencies got to work processing the remarkable amounts of data they were being freely given. This case shows why people interested in protecting their privacy must only trust open source applications.
