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. 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).

  3. 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)

  17. The Corporate Cabal (and Spy Agencies-Enabled Monopolies) Engages in Raiding of the Free Software Community and Hacker Culture

    In an overt attack on the people who actually did all the work — the geeks who built excellent software to be gradually privatised through the Linux Foundation (a sort of price-fixing and openwashing cartel for shared interests of proprietary software firms) — is receiving more widespread condemnation; even the OSI has been bribed to become a part-time Microsoft outsourcer as organisations are easier to corrupt than communities



  18. EPO's Web Site Constantly Spammed by Lies About Privacy While EPO Breaks the Law and Outsources Data to the United States

    The António Campinos-led EPO works for imperialism, it not only protects the rich; sadly, António’s father isn’t alive anymore and surely he would blast his son for doing what he does to progress his career while lying to staff and European citizens
