Facebook Could Now Advertise To Children, Thanks To Updated Federal Privacy Rules

Facebook Could Now Advertise To Children, Thanks To Updated Federal Privacy Rules | digitalcuration | Scoop.it

New advertising rules may have lifted a major barrier to Facebook’s long-held desire of signing up children under 13 years of age. The Federal Trade Communication revised the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) to exclude parental consent from ads that are based on behavior, rather than personal information. So-called “contextual advertisements” would permit Facebook to monetize children’s activity without violating rules about collecting their private information. Alan Simpson, Vice President of children’s online advocacy network, Common Sense media, tells us that though they agree with some of the rule changes, with regard to contextual ads, “Common Sense doesn’t like this part, and the industry lobbyists probably do.”

That Viral Video of Tigers Chasing a Drone Is From a Slaughter Farm, Folks - Motherboard

That Viral Video of Tigers Chasing a Drone Is From a Slaughter Farm, Folks - Motherboard | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
The truth about a popular video of Siberian tigers chasing a drone will surely depress you. The tiger farm, according to Big Cat Rescue, has operated under the guise of an animal rescue for some time. Busloads of tourists are given the rare opportunity to gawk at fearsome felines that would otherwise rip your face off. But Harbin Siberian Tiger Park also specializes in contraband like tiger bone, meat, pelts, and a speciality called "bone wine." A visit by McClatchy investigative reporters "found animals in deplorable conditions… merchants openly sold bone wine, despite a 1993 ban by China on bone products sourced from both domesticated and wild tigers."

A Fake Dark Web Hitman Site is Linked to a Real Murder - Motherboard

A Fake Dark Web Hitman Site is Linked to a Real Murder - Motherboard | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
Dark web site Besa Mafia was hacked in May 2016. The FBI has been actively investigating the site's users. Stephen Allwine is allegedly a killer. According to a criminal complaint, Stephen is suspected of shooting his wife, Amy Allwine, in the head with a nine millimeter pistol in their Cottage Grove, Minnesota, home last year. But one key part of the story that led prosecutors to charge Stephen was his alleged, and failed, attempt to hire a hitman on the so-called dark web to murder Amy. That site, called Besa Mafia and ostensibly run by Albanian gangsters, was an elaborate scam, and in May a hacker posted the site's customer details and messages online

Ransomware Attack Pushes Fake Font Update On Google Chrome Users

Ransomware Attack Pushes Fake Font Update On Google Chrome Users | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
Phishing attacks are the biggest threat to your security, but they're not limited to your inbox. Cybercriminals will also use the same social engineering techniques to attack you while you browse the web. The attack spawns an alert when you visit a compromised web page. It claims that the "HoeflerText font was not found" in your Google Chrome instance and displays version numbers that make it appear as though Chrome is somehow out-of-date. Fall for the ruse, and a "font installer" begins to download. That file is actually a "dropper," and researchers have seen it delivering the highly-sophisticated Spora ransomwareransomwareÀ

This researcher programmed bots to fight racism on Twitter. It worked. | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
And a particular kind of bot worked best. A better option might be to empower users to improve their online communities through peer-to-peer sanctioning. To test this hypothesis, I used Twitter accounts I controlled (“bots,” although they aren’t acting autonomously) to send messages designed to remind harassers of the humanity of their victims and to reconsider the norms of online behavior.

How to Protect Yourself from Creepy, Phone Snooping Spyware - Motherboard

How to Protect Yourself from Creepy, Phone Snooping Spyware - Motherboard | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
Although a hacker can only infect a phone if they have physical access to the device, the threat from this type of malware is very real. It is heavily used by, and marketed towards, jealous lovers to spy on their spouses. For around two decades, people have used spyware for this purpose, with many cases ending up in violence or even murder. What can potential victims of this type of surveillance do to check if they're being monitored? What are some of the best practices to keep in mind to make installing the malware harder? And what can those who are certainly being spied on do? Unfortunately, this is actually one of the harder information security threats to reliably give advice for.

Now sites can fingerprint you online even when you use multiple browsers

Now sites can fingerprint you online even when you use multiple browsers | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
The new tracking technique relies on JavaScript code that's compact enough to run quickly in the background while visitors are focused on a specific task, such as reading text or viewing video. The researchers have launched this website to demonstrate the techniques and have released the corresponding source code here. In a test that collected 3,615 fingerprints from 1,903 users over a three-month period, the technique was able to successfully identify 99.2 percent of users. By contrast, a single-browser fingerprinting technique dubbed AmIUnique, had a success rate of 90.8 percent. Fortunately, cross-browser tracking doesn't work against people using the default installation of the Tor browser. Still, many people tweak their installations of Tor so that it supports certain WebGL graphics capabilities required by gaming sites or other online destinations. While those tweaks may make the Tor browser more usable, they may also make it less immune to the fingerprinting techniques. Cao said he's not aware of any sites using cross-browser fingerprinting. Cross-browser fingerprinting is only the latest trick developers have come up with to track people who visit their sites. Besides traditional single-browser fingerprinting, other tracking methods include monitoring the way visitors type passwords and other text and embedding inaudible sound in TV commercials or websites. The Tor browser without an attached microphone or speakers is probably the most effective means of protection, although the researchers said running a browser inside a virtual machine may also work

A Stylometric Inquiry into Hyperpartisan and Fake News

This paper reports on a writing style analysis of hyperpartisan (i.e., extremely one-sided) news in connection to fake news. It presents a large corpus of 1,627 articles that were manually fact-checked by professional journalists from BuzzFeed. The articles originated from 9 well-known political publishers, 3 each from the mainstream, the hyperpartisan left-wing, and the hyperpartisan right-wing. In sum, the corpus contains 299 fake news, 97% of which originated from hyperpartisan publishers. We propose and demonstrate a new way of assessing style similarity between text categories via Unmasking---a meta-learning approach originally devised for authorship verification---, revealing that the style of left-wing and right-wing news have a lot more in common than any of the two have with the mainstream. Furthermore, we show that hyperpartisan news can be discriminated well by its style from the mainstream (F1=0.78), as can be satire from both (F1=0.81). Unsurprisingly, style-based fake news detection does not live up to scratch (F1=0.46). Nevertheless, the former results are important to implement pre-screening for fake news detectors.

Federal Judge Denies Warrant to Fingerprint Unlock Random Apple Devices in Illinois Building - Motherboard | digitalcuration | Scoop.it
According to the judge, the warrant application didn't identify any particular individual or device, and it also raises issues of compelled self-incrimination. The new document signals a developing trend in the drafting of so-called mass fingerprint warrants. "Essentially, the government seeks an order from this Court that would allow agents executing this warrant to force 'persons at the Subject Premises' to apply their thumbprints and fingerprints to any Apple electronic device recovered at the premises," the opinion and order signed by United States Magistrate Judge M. David Weisman from the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division, reads.
