Resumen: ¿Cómo Windows se utiliza para suprimir los activistas?

Nosotros, en Techrights desde hace mucho tiempo hemos recomendado en contra del uso de Windows por los activistas y organizaciones progresistas como Greenpeace. Aunque idealmente Windows debe ser mal visto por todos, porque es especialmente peligroso para este propósito, donde él activista y/u organización pueden ser objetivo potencial de una interferencia política/empresarial. La NSA (Agencia de Seguridad Nacional) quiere que te deshagas de Windows XP[http://www.neowin.net/news/the-nsa-wants-you-to-drop-windows-xp]. “¿Tiene la NSA una puerta trasera secreta en el Nuevo Standard de Encryption[http://www.schneier.com/essay-198.html]” (tal vez sólo cierto en parte)? “Microsoft niega que Windows 7 tenga una NSA (Agencia de Seguridad Nacional) puerta trasera[http://www.tomshardware.com/news/microsoft-windows-7-nsa-backdoor,9130.html]“, dijo un artículo después de una reciente tormenta en toda la Web, basada en que las pruebas habían sido fabricados por lo que es falso. Pero tenemos evidencia que sugieren lo contrario[http://techrights.org/2008/04/30/binary-bridges-and-security/]. La NSA no quiere que la gente utilice sistemas en los que se puede auditar el código[http://www.techeye.net/software/nsa-says-no-to-linux-in-best-practice-advisory]. Lo que al parecer, hace que sea muy seguro, incluso para las agencias secretas puedan crear puertas traseras sin ser descubiertos.

En la última ronda de las preocupaciones especulativas se convierta en realidad, una empresa británica, Gamma, se ve violando la ley[http://www.f-secure.com/weblog/archives/00002114.html] al igual que la BBC. Cuando la BBC acumulado ordenadores que forman parte de una botnet, e incluso utiliza el dinero de los contribuyentes para pagar bandas de ciber-criminales, lo que demostró que también era inmune a la ley, por razones misteriosas [1[http://techrights.org/2009/05/21/the-msbbc-wants-windows-botnets/], 2[http://techrights.org/2009/03/19/bbc-windows-botnets-fiasco/], 3[http://techrights.org/2009/03/14/bbc-zombie-pc-crimes-conficker/]].

Hay disturbios en Egipto, Túnez, Libia, Bahrein y otros lugares en el mundo árabe.

Hace dos días, los manifestantes en Nasr, Egipto se hizo cargo de la sede de la Seguridad del Estado egipcio.

Dentro de la sede, los manifestantes accedieron a las cargas de los documentos confidenciales del Estado.

Ahora, considere este artículo titulado[http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2011/apr/28/egypt-spying-software-gamma-finfisher] “Empresa británica ofrece el software de espionaje para el régimen egipcio – documentos”

Una empresa británica ofrece a vender un programa para los servicios de seguridad egipcios que los expertos dicen que podrían infectar a las computadoras, hackear en el correo electrónico basado en web y herramientas de comunicación como Skype e incluso tomar el control de los sistemas de otros grupos en forma remota, de acuerdo a los documentos vistos por The Guardian .

Dos activistas de derechos humanos egipcios que se encuentran los documentos en medio de cientos de porras y equipos de tortura cuando irrumpieron en la sede del servicio de Estado del régimen de Investigaciones de la Seguridad (SSI) el mes pasado.

Al igual que la BBC, parece estar infringiendo la ley y salirse con la suya[http://www.urban75.net/vbulletin/threads/345163-Legal-Advice-needed-U.K.-company-supplying-spyware-to-Egyptian-State-Security]:

Se trata de un directo de C&P desde mi puesto en el subproceso de Egipto, estoy esperando que algunas de las formas jurídicas que frecuentan urbana puede ser capaz de dar una idea o consejo:

La última lata de gusanos para ser desenterrado de Seguridad del Estado es una compra aparente de un malware/troyano/suite de software espía de una filial británica de una empresa alemana.

Este es un problema de Windows.

Como un blog de seguridad dijo[http://threatpost.com/en_us/blogs/report-uk-firm-offered-custom-malware-egyptian-security-services-042611], “documentos hechos públicos por la inestabilidad política en Egipto en los últimos meses ha sacado a luz el oscuro mundo con fines de lucro, de la creación de malware a medida para los gobiernos de todo el mundo.”

“La empresa contra malware F-Secure llamo la atención a los documentos descubiertos por los egipcios que protestaron en marzo. Lo que incluía una propuesta para vender un producto llamado “Finfisher” para el régimen de Mubarak.”

No hace mucho tiempo activistas rusos fueron arrestados, usando la licencia de Windows como excusa [1[http://techrights.org/2010/10/18/rewriting-history-about-dissent/], 2[http://techrights.org/2011/02/17/gulagware/]]. ¿Cuándo las personas aprenderán que el activismo y Windows son incompatibles?

  1. A Parade of Fake News About the UPC Does Not Change the General Consensus or the Simple Facts

    European Patents (EPs) from the EPO are granted in violation of the EPC; Courts are now targeted by António Campinos and the minions he associates with (mostly parasitic litigation firms and monopolists), for they want puppets for “judges” and for invalid patents to be magically rendered “valid” and “enforceable”



  2. Welcome to 2022: Intentional Lies Are 'Benefits' and 'Alternative Facts'

    A crooks-run EPO, together with the patent litigation cabal that we’ve dubbed ‘Team UPC’ (it has nothing to do with science or with innovation), is spreading tons of misinformation; the lies are designed to make the law-breaking seem OK, knowing that Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos are practically above the law, so perjury as well as gross violations of the EPC and constitutions won’t scare them (prosecution as deterrence just isn’t there, which is another inherent problem with the UPC)



  3. From Software Eating the World to the Pentagon Eating All the Software

    “Software is eating the world,” according to Marc Andreessen (co-founder of Netscape), but the Empire Strikes Back (not the movie, the actual empire) by hijacking all code by proxy, via Microsoft, just as it grabbed a lot of the world’s communications via Skype, bypassing the world's many national telecoms; coders need to fight back rather than participate in racist (imperial) shams such as GitHub

    "Debian and Mozilla played along. They were made “Yeoman Freeholders” in return for rewriting their charters to “work closely with the new Ministry in the interests of all stakeholders” – or some-such vacuous spout… because no one remembers… after that it started."

  8. Computer Users Should be Operators, But Instead They're Being Operated by Vendors and Governments

    Computers have been turned into hostile black boxes (unlike Blackbox) that distrust the person who purchased them; moreover, from a legislative point of view, encryption (i.e. computer security) is perceived and treated by governments like a threat instead of something imperative — a necessity for society’s empowerment (privacy is about control and people in positions of unjust power want total and complete control)



  9. Peak Code — Part I: Before the Wars

    Article/series by Dr. Andy Farnell: "in the period between 1960 and 2060 people had mistaken what they called "The Internet" for a communications system, when it had in fact been an Ideal and a Battleground all along - the site of the 100 years info-war."

  12. Gemini Lets You Control the Presentation Layer to Suit Your Own Needs

    In Gemini (or the Web as seen through Gemini clients such as Kristall) the user comes first; it's not sites/capsules that tell the user how pages are presented/rendered, as they decide only on structural/semantic aspects



  13. The Future of Techrights

    Futures are difficult to predict, but our general vision for the years ahead revolves around more community involvement and less (none or decreased) reliance on third parties, especially monopolistic corporations, mostly because they oppress the population via the network and via electronic devices

  16. The Web is a Corporate Misinformation/Disinformation Platform, Biased Against Communities, Facts, and Science

    Misinformation/disinformation in so-called 'news' sites is a pandemic which spreads; in the process, the founder of GNU/Linux gets defamed and GNU/Linux itself is described as the problem, not the solution to the actual problems

    Twitter is an out-of-control censorship machine and it should be treated accordingly even by those who merely "read" or "follow" Twitter accounts; Twitter is a filter, not a news/media platform or even means of communication

  25. Another Video IBM Does Not Want You to Watch

    It seems very much possible that IBM (or someone close to IBM) is trying to purge me from Twitter, so let’s examine what they may be trying to distract from. As we put it 2 years ago, "Watson" is a lot more offensive than those supposedly offensive words IBM is working to purge; think about those hundreds of Red Hat workers who are black and were never told about ethnic purges of blacks facilitated by IBM (their new boss).

  27. Good News, Bad News (and Back to Normal)

    When many services are reliant on the integrity of a single, very tiny MicroSD card you're only moments away from 2 days of intensive labour (recovery, investigation, migration, and further coding); we've learned our lessons and took advantage of this incident to upgrade the operating system, double the storage space, even improve the code slightly (for compatibility with newer systems)
