Police allowed to seize computer networks

March 05, 2008 05:30pm

Have your say! Comments are open on this article - add yours
NSW police will be able to seize entire computer networks to crack down on terrorism threats and child pornography traders under new laws to be introduced by the State Government.

The new powers will also result in police being able to seize computer hardware for up to seven days.

NSW Police Minister David Campbell said that previously police were only able to search computers found in premises named in a search warrant.

But, he said, criminals were using computer networks to try to commit and conceal their crimes.

"Under these proposed new powers, police would be able to go beyond computers located in criminals' homes and offices, and infiltrate networked computers where criminals have hidden incriminating material," Mr Campbell said.

"With these extended powers police would be able to go a step further, accessing and searching other networked computers regardless of their physical location."

Mr Campbell said giving police seven days to search the seized hardware would allow them time to decode encrypted information.

Thought Crimes 2008 - EU to punish incitement to terrorism on Internet

EU to punish incitement to terrorism on Internet
Fri Apr 18, 2008 3:56pm EDT

LUXEMBOURG (Reuters) - EU states agreed on Friday on tight laws against incitement to terrorism in order to clamp down on militant groups' use of the Internet.

EU justice and interior ministers also agreed in Luxembourg on an action plan to try to stop groups getting explosives.

Police say the Internet has taken on huge importance for militants, enabling them to share know-how, plan operations and spread propaganda to a mass audience.

"The Internet is used to inspire and mobilize local terrorists ... functioning as a virtual training camp," a text agreed by ministers said.

"Each member state shall take the necessary measures to ensure that terrorist-linked offences include ... public provocation to commit a terrorist offence, recruitment for terrorism, training for terrorism."

States may also consider attempts to train and recruit as terrorist offences, but are not obliged to do so, an EU official said.

Spain's secretary of state for justice, Julio Perez Hernandez, welcomed the move.

"The battle to anticipate (terrorist acts) is crucial for Spain," he told reporters. "One should not wait for smoke to know there is terrorism."

In an effort to assuage civil rights campaigners, the law says that the new measure may not be used to restrict freedom of expression and freedom of the press.

Before entering into force, the law still needs to be confirmed by ministers after a number of national parliaments have discussed it.

A European Commission official said countries like Spain and Italy already punish public provocation to terrorism but others, like Scandinavian countries, would have to change their legislation to apply the new EU text.

Under the plan to enhance the security of explosives, ministers agreed to establish an early-warning system on stolen explosives and detonators by the end of the year.

They also agreed to create by the year-end a "European Bomb Data System" that would give police and governments permanent access to information on incidents involving explosive devices.

Doomsday For The Internet As We Know It?

Paul Joseph Watson/PrisonPlanet.com | February 6 2006

Several developments that are coming to the fore indicate a noticeable advance towards a government regulated, taxed and controlled system that spells doomsday for the Internet as we know it.

The first steps in a move to charge for every e mail sent have already been taken. Under the pretext of eliminating spam, Bill Gates and other industry chieftains have proposed Internet users buy credit stamps which denote how many e mails they will be able to send. This of course is the death knell for political newsletters and mailing lists.

Australian cities top suicide web searches

By Sean Plambeck
May 03, 2008 12:20am


AUSTRALIA has the dubious honour of having the English-speaking world's first, second and fourth ranked cities when it comes to searching "how to commit suicide" on Google.

A Google Trends report lists Melbourne as having the highest percentage of searches on the topic compared to total searches on the site.

Brisbane is ranked second on the list while Sydney comes in at number four.

University of Melbourne Associate Professor Jane Pirkis, who researches suicide in the media, said pro-suicide websites are banned in Australia and the reason three of its major capitals ranked so highly is unknown.

“It would be interesting to know who is searching for this information,” Prof Pirkis told NEWS.com.au.

“If it is people who are physically healthy, then it is quite concerning.”

But euthanasia advocate Dr Philip Nitschke believes the popularity of the search was due to a lack of information available to the public.

Dr Nitschke’s Peaceful Pill Handbook was banned in Australia last year for promoting suicide, but he said such measures would not discourage people from seeking the information.

“The Howard government went out of its way to restrict the flow of information on people’s end of life options,” Dr Nitschke said.

“This is an expected consequence when you limit the flow of information.”

However Dr Nitschke said there could be problems with the reliability of the information on the internet.

“In some ways if you force this whole business underground people are going to end up with more bizarre and unchecked information and you end up with situations like the man who used a robot to kill himself earlier this year,” he said.

Australia has the 44th highest suicide rate in the world according to statistics compiled by the World Health Organisation.

Prof Pirkis said national suicide rates were hard to compare because different countries had different methods for recording and publishing statistics.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics reported 1799 deaths from suicide were registered in 2006, 78 per cent of which were males.

Suicide accounts for 1.3 per cent of all deaths in Australia but for males aged 20-25, it accounted for more than 20 per cent of deaths in 2006.

Lifeline chief executive Dawn O’Neil said there was no publicly available information on prevalence of suicide by city or suburb in Australia.

Ms O’Neil encouraged anyone feeling depressed or considering taking their own life to call Lifeline’s confidential counselling service.

“There are people to help and support you and these feelings often pass with time, and here at Lifeline we focus on the reasons for living,” she said.

“Often it is very difficult to talk about which is why confidential counselling lines are so highly utilised.”

Dr Nitschke said many people interested in suicide or euthanasia were neither terminally ill or depressed.

“A lot of older people are sound of mind and take a more pragmatic view of the end of their lives,” he said.

“Often once they have the information they get the peace of mind of knowing they are in control but never act on it.”

Woman pleads guilty in Craigslist hitman case

From correspondents in San Francisco
April 21, 2008 08:27am


A woman who advertised online for a hitman to kill her lover's wife has pleaded guilty to the murder-for-hire scheme.

Anne Marie Linscott, 49, faces 10 years in prison for each of three federal charges, including intent to commit murder, the US Attorneys for the Western District of Michigan and the Eastern District of California said in a joint statement.

In November 2007, three California residents searching job listings on Craigslist.com found an advertisement for a "freelance" position posted by Ms Linscott, according to court documents. The three job seekers contacted California police.

The defendant asked two of the respondents via email to "eradicate" the victim and provided the victim's name, age and employment address. In one correspondence, she said she was looking for "silent assassins" and offered to pay $US5000 ($5367) to kill the victim, who was not identified by the court. "This IS a serious proposition," Ms Linscott said in an email. Her account name was "bourne2run."

Ms Linscott, a resident of Rockford, Michigan, met her lover while taking an online college course several years ago. Ms Linscott and the man, identified in court documents only as Duane, carried on a sexual affair, meeting in Reno, Nevada, in 2005 and 2007.

They spoke on the phone and corresponded by email, court filings said. As part of a plea deal between the government and Ms Linscott, prosecutors agreed to drop charges she had left an incendiary device outside her rival's house in April 2007.

Sentencing has yet to be scheduled.

Stolen military equipment being sold online

By staff writers April 11, 2008 01:15pm

STOLEN military equipment including parts from F-14 fighter jets is being traded through popular websites like eBay and Craigslist.

Undercover investigators from the US Government Accountability Office used auction website eBay and social network Craigslist to purchase a dozen defence items, including fighter jet parts and biological equipment.

In a report released by the GAO today, investigators said there were "no questions asked" during the transactions.

Most of the stolen items were on the US Munitions List, which restricts their sales outside the US.

The GAO report claimed that despite regulations on eBay and Craigslist, "there are few safeguards to prevent sensitive and stolen defence-related items from being sold to either domestic or foreign users of these sites."

"Many of the sensitive items we purchased could have been used directly against our troops and allies, or reverse engineered to develop counter measures or equivalent technologies," the report said.

Investigators were able to purchase two parts from F-14 fighter jets, a warplane model that has been discontinued by the US army. The report noted the Iranian military was currently seeking F-14 components.

One Craigslist seller sold investigators a used Nuclear Biological Chemical protective suit and other protective gear that was likely stolen from the Defence Department, investigators said.

"Although not all of the stolen property items available on eBay and Craigslist were sensitive, each item was purchased with taxpayer money and represents a waste of resources," the report said.

Sarah H. Finnicum, the director of supply at the Office of Deputy Chief of Staff for the Army, told a House subcommittee on National Security and Foreign Affairs that the US Army had been improving its inventory systems.

In 2006, the US Army launched a new inventory program to improve property accountability, Ms Finnicum said. It has since accounted for over 20,000 items worth more than $US135 million ($145.59 million).

The chairman of the subcommittee, Democratic Representative John Tierney, said he was startled by the fact "that it took the Army and DoD six years to get the system in place that probably should have been in place by 2001".

It surprises me that they haven't already pulled the plug. I mean, look how much has come to light in the past few years - let alone since the beginning. Alex says they just don't care anymore (about exposing their wickedness) so why on Earth have they let the Internet awaken so many?

Maybe they want some to reach the boiling point, to rebel, and then voila - down comes the boot? Who knows.

It's a good point.

Perhaps now is not the most opportune time, there's no heightened sense of fear...

If most people are still under the control of the propaganda the small minority are just a temporary hurdle.

When the next World War comes, the need for 'self-sacrifice' will come back. The fear of terrorism will again reach the levels of post 9/11 and the switch-over may begin to thwart a 'war-time' attack that'll cripple the national infrastruce and a need to change to a more 'secure' web 2.0 is needed.

But everyone must be pre-screened and grouped into threat categories. 
Biometrics, RFID etc.

OR an attack is staged during a World War on the core of the internet and it just shuts down...government officials worldwide announce that Web 1.0 has permanently collapsed.

But everyone must be pre-screened and grouped into threat categories. 
Biometrics, RFID etc.

Level 5 - Known terrorist (Al-Qaeda, anti-war, anti-globalism, anti-UN / EU / AU, 9/11 truth) - Access denied
Level 4 - Volunteer NWO minions (Child spy squads, buggers, infiltrators) Very limited / Slow
Level 3 - Provocateurs - Limited / Reasonable
Level 2 - Selected Cops / Military / Government - T1
Level 1 - New World Order - Unlimited

France acts to outlaw anorexia Web sites
By Doreen Carvajal
Tuesday, April 15, 2008

PARIS: In the capital of high fashion and ultrathin models, conservative French legislators adopted a pioneering law Tuesday aimed at stifling a proliferation of Web sites that promote eating disorders with "thinspiration" and starvation tips.

The bill, approved by France's lower house of Parliament, still faces a vote in the Senate. But if passed, it would take aim at any means of mass communication - magazines, blogs, Web sites - that promote eating disorders like anorexia or bulimia with punishments of up to three years in prison and €45,000, or $71,000 fines.

The new law was sponsored by Valérie Boyer, a conservative lawmaker from the Bouches-du-Rhone region in the south of France, but was also supported by the government's health minister, Roselyne Bachelot.

"We have noticed," Boyer said in an interview with The Associated Press, "that the sociocultural and media environment seems to favor the emergence of troubled nutritional behavior, and that is why I think it necessary to act."

With such a law, the French legislators are seeking to tame a murky world of some 400 sites extolling "ana" and "mia," fond nicknames for anorexia and bulimia. Since 2000, the Web sites have multiplied in different languages with blunt tips on crash dieting, binging, vomiting and hiding weight loss from concerned parents.

In Spain, support groups have emerged to counter the influence of pro-ana Web sites, and government authorities prodded Microsoft to close down four such groups on its social networking site, Live Spaces. Health experts in Britain have also attacked the growth of Web sites that refer to anorexia as "my friend ana."

The wording of the bill would make it illegal to "provoke a person to seek excessive weight loss by encouraging prolonged nutritional deprivation that would have the effect of exposing them to risk of death or endangering health."

Critics from the French Socialist Party complained that the new law was vaguely worded and rushed through the lower house by the UMP, the conservative party of President Nicolas Sarkozy.

Eating disorder experts also expressed doubts about whether such a law would actually help victims or create even more demand for the sites by creating new publicity about their existence.

"Ultimately, I think it's a mistake to ban them because I think that you're going to be hard pressed to demonstrate in a very clear way that these sites have a direct negative affect," said Michael Levine, a psychology professor at Kenyon College in the United States whose specialty is eating disorders and the effects of mass media.

There is some emerging evidence that Web sites promoting anorexia do have a negative impact, according to research by Anna Bardone-Cone, a psychology professor at the University of Missouri whose work was published in The International Journal of Eating Disorders. Bardone-Cone created a typical pro-ana Web site and randomly assigned 235 female college students to view it or a fashion Web site featuring conventional models.

Her research showed that the young women who looked at the anorexia site later felt lowered self-esteem.

Bardone-Cone, though, said she had mixed feelings about the French approach to use legislation to tackle the issue. She advocates the blocking of such sites from schools and public libraries, but said that education is the best approach to reach the typical young women drawn to the sites.

"The people who they are targeting are very vulnerable populations," she said. "These are young girls, teens."

As written, the proposed French law does not make it clear who would be ultimately responsible for the contents of such sites - a blogger or the Internet Service Providers hosting the site.

An aide to the lawmaker, Boyer, who asked not to be named, said the UMP expected that the proposed law would be amended to address some of those questions. And he added that the idea was to target institutions that promote eating disorders, noting that "we cannot exclude fashion shows if there is a problem of health" or the death of a model.

The proposed law - the result of a collaboration between the Boyer, the UMP and the Ministry of Health - is one of the strongest measures proposed since the 2006 death of a Brazilian model from anorexia that prompted soul searching in the fashion industry.

Last week, French lawmakers and fashion industry members signed a nonbinding charter to promote healthier body images in a nation where the Health Ministry estimates that more than 30,000 people suffer form anorexia.

But the proposed legislation drew criticism from the French Federation of Couture. Didier Grumbach, president of the organization, told The Associated Press that it was impossible to legislate body weight.

"Never will we accept in our profession that a judge decides if a young girl is skinny or not skinny," he said. "That doesn't exist in the world, and it will certainly not exist in France. "

Gates says big changes in store for Internet in next decade    
May 6 10:21 AM US/Eastern
By KELLY OLSEN
AP Business Writer

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) - Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates said there will be a vast shift in Internet technology over the next decade as he met Tuesday with South Korean President Lee Myung-bak.

"We're approaching the second decade of (the) digital age," the software mogul and philanthropist told Lee at the start of their meeting at the presidential Blue House, according to a media pool report.

"The Internet has been operating now for 10 years," Gates said. "The second 10 years will be very different."

Microsoft Corp., the South Korean government and South Korean companies are investing $313 million in information technology for vehicles, games and education, according to a Blue House statement.

Microsoft and automakers Hyundai Motor Inc. and Kia Motors Corp. announced earlier Tuesday a deal to use Microsoft's in-car software, which allows people to control music and telephones with voice commands.

The company has a one-year exclusivity deal on the software with Ford Motor Co. in the U.S., but that expires in November. Fiat also has been selling cars with the software.

"We're doing some very interesting work on automobile software," Gates said after having dinner with Lee. "That's a really wide open area where some very exiting things will come out of."

Lee, a conservative former construction CEO, swept into office in February with a vow to boost economic growth through deregulation and increasing foreign investment.

In the Blue House statement, Gates was quoted as saying that new deals would boost South Korea's economic growth by as much as $6.9 billion over the next five years.

Gates, at a later event sponsored by South Korean television network SBS, talked about the future of software and human interaction in the next decade.

"We can expect that the variety and quality of software will accelerate in the years ahead," the Microsoft co-founder said.

Gates added that "natural interaction" between hardware and software was finally becoming possible, citing as an example speech commands to computers.

"The whole environment will be very, very different," he said.

Microsoft also said Tuesday that it will invest $280 million to build a research and development center in China's capital Beijing, and will double the number of its full-time research staff in China to 3,000 in three to five years.

Four found dead after inhaling lethal gas made from detergent in Takayama

Wednesday 07th May, 05:33 AM JST

TOKYO —

Four people were found dead in a rented car in western Japan in an apparent “detergent suicide,” a phenomenon that has gripped the nation battling to curb a high suicide rate, police said Tuesday.

The bodies of three men and a woman—all in their 20s and 30s—were discovered by a patrolling police officer in Takashima, in western Japan, said a local police official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, citing department protocol.

“The four were not related to each other. We suspect they have committed suicide by inhaling hydrogen sulfide gas,” the official said, adding police found bottles of bath detergent and other household chemicals.

The deaths were the latest in a series of similar cases in Japan, which has been long battling to curb one of the highest suicides rates in the world.

Local media said detergent suicides have claimed more than 50 lives in the previous month alone.

Police last week began cracking down on popular suicide websites seen to be encouraging people to commit detergent suicides by giving instructions on how to mix the household products to make hydrogen sulfide gas.

Authorities also fear the deadly gas could endanger bystanders or rescuers. Last week, a man on the northern island of Hokkaido killed himself by mixing detergent in his house and released toxic fumes that drove 350 neighbors from their homes in the wee hours.

A total of 32,155 people killed themselves in 2006 in Japan, giving the country the ninth highest suicide rate in the world, according to the government.

It has been reported that the internet 2.0 was created to help record data from a supercollider at CERN.  They also report that many fear that when this supercollider is turned it could end the world as we know referencing that it could create a black hole.

It makes me wonder if they are not just rushing this new internet 2 threw as fast as they can to stop free flow of information.  To stop people from asking questions and being able to find answers.  Perhaps the internet 1 is ruining the world they created so they created the internet 2.

I think we MUST make it one of the top-priority topics, just as it is on the NWO agenda, and bring the subject up among all of the truth movement leaders so that they can talk about it and come up with alternatives. It would be total stupidity to make a movement grow primarily using the internet and then allow the enemy to shut it down because we did not have a plan B. This is a first amendment issue and it should get no less attention than other issues being discussed in the truth and patriot movement. I appreciate the fact that Mark Koernke always think in terms of alternatives and back up systems using very cheap and quite easily available material in order to ensure survivability should the enemy mave a certain move. We should not trust the NWO with out means of communication. We better tell each other NOW how we will be communicating with each other should something happen that removes the internet from the equation.

Fax machines, telephones, SW radio (radio relay systems for intercontinental communications), wireless networking..

Man, I agree! I have thought the same thing myself. I wonder anyone has thought of a way to transmit web style info with shortwave radio.

Experts warn of cyber-terrorism threat

From correspondents in Kuala Lumpur May 21, 2008 02:00am


Not just Hollywood ... experts warn cyber-terrorist attacks, like those in Die Hard 4.0, are a very real threat

THE threat of cyber-terrorism is growing and most countries are vulnerable to attacks that can shut down critical infrastructure, global experts have told a conference on internet security. "The hard reality is that (information technology) has become a tool for cybercrime and cyberterrorism," said Hamadoun Toure from the United Nations' International Telecommunications Union. "Cybersecurity must be the cornerstone of every aspect of keeping ourselves, our countries and our world safe," he told the conference, which the Malaysian hosts are billing as the first on cyber-terrorism and security.

Mr Toure dismissed as a dangerous myth the idea that events in the virtual world have only a limited impact on the physical world, saying that technology has "changed the dynamics of terrorism". Small groups or even individuals are capable of gaining control of millions of computers "which can be used, for instance, to launch denial-of-service attacks on a nation's critical infrastructure," he said.

Malaysia said it was launching a global centre to combat cyber-terrorism which will provide an emergency response to high-tech attacks on economies and trading systems around the world. Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said the centre, which is expected to be built by the end of the year at the nation's IT hub of Cyberjaya, south of Kuala Lumpur, will be funded by governments and the private sector. "Every aspect of our daily lives, from communications, public utilities, financial networks to national defence... are highly dependent on information and communications technology to function," he told the conference. Mr Abdullah said the threat of cyber-terrorism could no longer be ignored by governments, especially in the most "wired" parts of the world. "The extent of harm and damage that these cyber-threats can pose to our societies and nations should never be underestimated. Any vulnerability can easily be exploited to bring about truly catastrophic consequences," he said.

Eugene Kaspersky, founder and CEO of Russian-based anti-virus experts Kaspersky Lab, said the number of cyber-criminals had leapt more than tenfold since last year. "This means the internet environment is getting more dangerous... there's nothing to stop them," he said.

David Thompson, chief information officer of anti-virus systems manufacturer Symantec, said that the risk of cyber-terrorism grew as nations became more developed. "Most countries are vulnerable to cyber terrorism, it's just that some are more prepared than others," he said.

'Hacker shuts down government computers'

By Phoebe Stewart May 16, 2008 07:10am

AN EXPERT hacker allegedly shut down the Northern Territory Government computer system and deleted thousands of employees' identities, a Darwin court heard yesterday.

And the court heard the Government could still be at risk of another cyber attack.

David Anthony McIntosh, 27, allegedly hacked in and shut down several NT Government databases on May 5, including servers for the Health Department, Royal Darwin Hospital, Berrimah Prison and Supreme Court using his laptop at a Palmerston home.

Prosecutor Sergeant Erica Sims told the Darwin Magistrates Court yesterday the Sydney IT expert allegedly deleted the independent user accounts of 10,475 NT public servants.

She said many workers had to be "stood down", and experts had been working "24 hours, seven days a week" to repair the damage.

But Sgt Sims said it could take months to fix, with the repair cost estimated to run into the "hundreds of thousands of dollars".

She said police contested Mr McIntosh's bail application yesterday, as there were fears he made copies of passwords and data. If they existed, the court heard the alleged hacker could possibly access these "anywhere in the world".

IT security consultant Anthony Ashbury said there was no proof copies existed "at this stage", but they were examining the logs of a number of servers.

"We believe it may have occurred," he said.

Sgt Sims told the court police had found a file containing all NT Government passwords, including those of police, after his laptop and his colleague's desktop were seized.

The Northern Territory News understands all Territory public servants have been directed to change their passwords.

"He (Mr McIntosh) has excellent computer knowledge ... he would understand the impact of his actions," Sgt Sims said.

Dressed casually in jeans and a t-shirt, Mr McIntosh looked anxious when Chief Magistrate Jenny Blokland refused him bail, citing his "tenuous ties" to the Territory among her reasons.

The IT expert came to Darwin in February as a service engineer, and was given "high level clearance" to upgrade and maintain the NT Government's entire system. Sgt Sims said when he resigned on April 7 his credentials were deleted.

The prosecutor alleged he used a colleague's IP address – a unique numerical code – to access a virtual private network connection with the government system and hacked in.

Lawyer Ian Rowbottam said it was "nonsense" to suggest Mr McIntosh made copies.

A 10-day hearing has been set for October.

Mr McIntosh is facing charges of property damage over $50,000 and up to 10 years' jail if convicted.

Senators forced to use internet filter system

By Adam Gartrell in Canberra May 13, 2008 06:56pm

Have your say! Comments are open on this article - add yours
SENATORS and their staff can no longer use their Parliament House computers to surf internet porn or gamble online.

Senate President Alan Ferguson today revealed Parliament House's internet filtering system had been extended to senators' offices, formerly exempt from the restrictions.

The system blocks access to "blacklisted" material, which also includes websites about illegal drugs, illegal weapons and racial hate.

But the Australian Democrats have complained bitterly about the move, saying the system is blocking legitimate sites they need for research purposes.

Senator Ferguson said he made the decision to extend the system based on the views of the Senate Appropriations and Staffing Committee, which considered the matter in March.

The committee believed senators and their staff should not be treated any differently than departmental staff working in Parliament House, to which the filters have traditionally applied.
Related stories

Senators could still access blocked websites by request, but Democrats Senator Lyn Allison said that was not good enough.

"It seems to me to be a form of censorship which has absolutely no purpose," she told the Senate.

"And I object to the fact that someone else is deciding what is a morally appropriate website for me to observe and what is not."

Senator Allison said the filter had blocked completely innocent websites she had tried to access, including news websites.

A number of senators had complained to her about the system, which she said would also likely block sites about sexual and reproductive health and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.

Senator Allison said she did not need such overbearing "moral protection".

"We're being treated like children, we're adults, we're fully human and it isn't up to someone else to say this is or isn't appropriate."

Australia to get net censorship

From correspondents in Canberra December 21, 2007 05:19pm

NEW restrictions on online chatrooms, websites and mobile phone content will be introduced within a month to stop children viewing unsuitable material.

From January 20 new laws will be in effect, imposing tougher rules for companies that sell entertainment-related content on subscription internet sites and mobile phones.

It is the first time content service providers will have to check that people accessing MA15-plus content are aged over 15 years and those accessing R18-plus and X18-plus content are over 18.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) will be able to force content providers to take down offensive material and issue notices for live content to be stopped and links to the content deleted.

But ACMA chairman Chris Chapman said adults will not be affected by the new laws.

"In developing these new content rules, ACMA was guided by its disposition to allow adults to continue to read, hear and see what they want, while protecting children from exposure to inappropriate content, regardless of the delivery mechanism," Mr Chapman said in a statement.

Providers of live services, such as chatrooms, must have their service professionally assessed to determine whether its "likely content" should be restricted.

Personal emails and other private communications would be excluded from the new laws and so would news or current affairs services.

I posted the censorship information on news tips and suggested it in Guests but hardly anything Australian is covered.

It's U.K., Canada, Europe or U.S.

Not that everything can be covered at once but it'd be nice to cover the police state here when noone else does.

Baby for sale on eBay 'a joke'

From correspondents in Berlin

May 25, 2008 12:18am

GERMAN police are investigating a couple after they offered their eight-month-old son for sale on internet auction site eBay.
Renee Beck, a police spokesman in the Bavarian town of Krumbach west of Munich, said the 23-year-old woman told them it was only a joke.

But he said police were nevertheless continuing their investigation and the baby was put in state custody.

"She says it was a joke," he said. "That's not yet clear.

Detectives are investigating on suspicion of child trafficking.

A number of people called authorities across Germany after seeing the offer on eBay that read: "Baby - collection only. Offer my nearly new baby for sale because it cries too much. Male, 70 cm long."

The opening bid was €1 ($1.65). There were no bidders during the two hours before the offer was removed, police said.

The mother was quoted in Bild newspaper saying: "It was only a joke. I just wanted to see if someone would make an offer.

"They've taken my son to hospital and I've got to take psychiatric tests next week."

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,23754285-23109,00.html



The irony is that now the baby is in state custody it really could be sold!

Buffett says probably won't buy Internet firms
Wed May 21, 2008 1:21pm EDT

MADRID, May 21 (Reuters) - U.S. Investor Warren Buffett said on Wednesday that he had no plans to invest in Internet companies.

"I have tried to stay with businesses where I know how their economics will look in 5, 10 or 20 years and that's much easier to do in areas where there's little change," Buffett, the world's richest person, told a news conference in Madrid.

"I'm not good at predicting change. I tend to stick with things where there is very little change and that tends to preclude internet companies," he added. (Reporting by Ben Harding; Editing by Martin Roberts)

I think it has become fairly obvious that the internet as we know it today (fairly open and free of regulation (control) ) is a major thorn for "authorities" and the pro NWO side. It has the potential to negate one of the major tools of the NWO, the mass media.

The sheer volume of information and exchange thereof is immensely hurtful for the NWO agenda. Specifically the availability of primary source material of the NWO itself. Imagine 30 or 40 years ago where an individual could only reach those in his immediate vicinity (neighborhood, county, town, city) and the difficulty in which he would go about convincing or debating others using source material. You can't walk around with volumes and volumes of books and photocopying everything is would be fairly expensive. Furthermore, in order to make your case one would have to talk someone who was a fairly avid reader so that one could discover everything for themselves.

Not only does the internet-1 provide 1 individual with access to millions but it makes the research and dissemination of information very simple and easy.

For example, what would be of the PNAC document if there was no internet or a controlled internet. Very, very few would know of the document and it's connections. Very few would have access to even read the document for themselves.

Connecting the dots would be extremely difficult.

I've believed for a while now that the pro NWO elites are kicking themselves everyday for allowing the internet to become what it is today. I don't think they projected it to be this way.

If internet-2 is put into place than the NWO plan will be a cakewalk. At least with the way it is today the people at least have a chance to fight.

Hong Kong, China, Most Dangerous Web Domains to Browse
By Gisela Sommer
Epoch Times San Diego Staff
Jun 06, 2008

In a June 4 press release, McAfee, a world leader in antivirus, firewall, and Internet security software, reported its latest findings of most dangerous and most secure web sites. McAfee found the most dangerous domains to navigate are ".hk" (Hong Kong), ".cn" (China) and ".info"(information).

The second annual McAfee "Mapping the Mal Web" report into the riskiest and safest places on the web reveals that 19.2% of all web sites ending in the ".hk" domain pose a security threat to web users. China (.cn) is second with 11.8%. Romania (.ro) and Russia (.ru) remained in the top five most dangerous places with 6.75% and 6% of their web sites ranked as risky. By contrast, Finland (.fi) is the safest online destination with 0.05%, followed by Japan (.jp) and Australia (.au).

The most risky generic domain is ".info" which is also the third most dangerous domain overall, while government web sites (.gov) remained the safest generic domain. The most popular domain, .com, is the ninth riskiest overall.

McAfee analyzed 9.9 million heavily trafficked web sites found in 265 different country. The study compared the ratings of sites found in each of the 265 country and generic domains and ranked them by the number of risky web sites found in each domain that contained adware, spyware, viruses, spam, excessive pop-ups, browser exploits or links to other red-rated sites.

The report also found that the chance of downloading spyware, adware, viruses or other unwanted software from surfing the web increased 41.5% over 2007. Additionally, sites which offer downloads such as ring tones and screen savers that are also loaded with viruses, spyware and adware increased over the last year from 3.3% to 4.7%.

McAfee "Mapping the Mal Web Revisited" report is available online.

Call them the spies who came in from the cold. Two CIA employees discussed -- to a point -- the government agency's Web 2.0 project, Intellipedia, at the Enterprise 2.0 conference in Boston this week.

While you wouldn't think that the CIA has evangelists, that's how Sean Dennehy, chief of the CIA's Intellipedia Development and Don Burke from the CIA's Directorate of Science and Technology, described themselves. Both talked about how they went about creating a secure Web 2.0 environment for the intelligence community.

In a video interview with new media consultant David Spark of N.Y.-based Spark Media Solutions, Dennehy described Intellipedia as a Wiki available on three networks -- a top secret network, a secret network and a sensitive but unclassified network available to the intelligence community.

"Something that's very important to make clear is that these are intelligence community tools and not necessarily CIA tools," Dennehy said. "We are encouraging the adoption of these tools but they are community-based and provided by what's known as the DNI or director of national intelligence."

Intellipedia was born out a discussion about a paper written by Dr. Calvin Andrus, "The Wiki and the Blog: Toward a Complex Adaptive Intelligence Community, written in December 2004.

"He laid the philosophical groundwork for how the world is changing under our feet and what we need to do to adapt to that reality," said Dennehy. "We wanted to know how to improve communications within the CIA and disparate intelligence organizations."

Intellipedia uses the same software as Wikipedia. Its Web 2.0 suite of tools includes: aggregation; interlink blogs, Tag|Connect (similar to del.icio.us); Inteldocs (a document management system for file sharing community-wide); Gallery (similar to flickr); iVideo (similar to YouTube); Intelink Instant Messaging (IIM); and Really Simple Syndication (RSS).

Of course, there are differences between Wikipedia and Intellipedia. All edits are attributable and are not limited to being an encyclopedia. And also unlike Wikipedia, there are also many contributors from different agencies with attributable points of view.

The evangelists said Intellipedia is still in the nascent stage and initially met with resistance from a lot of naysayers in the intelligence community. Dennehy described these hesitant users as having "Wikipause."

"A person has to go through that process of taking the courage to hit "return," to submit their information to the platform and then see the benefit later," he said. "It's an act of faith actually to start publishing to the platform."

Freedom and the Internet - Tim Berners-Lee - Quotes

One of the fathers of the Internet-----Tim Berners-Lee--quotes:

"Most larger companies now see that for the market to grow, Web infrastructure must be royalty-free."

"On the Web, you can allow people to talk to each other, but you have to guarantee that they know who's going to have access to the conversation."

"The challenge is to manage the Web in an open way-not too much bureaucracy, not subject to political or commercial pressures. The U.S. should demonstrate that it is prepared to share control with the world."

"The Domain Name Server (DNS) is the Achilles heel of the Web. The important thing is that it's managed responsibly."

"The important thing is the diversity available on the Web."

"The Web is now philosophical engineering. Physics and the Web are both about the relationship between the small and the large."

"We could say we want the Web to reflect a vision of the world where everything is done democratically. To do that, we get computers to talk with each other in such a way as to promote that ideal."

"We shouldn't build a technology to colour, or grey out, what people say. The media in general is balanced, although there are a lot of issues to be addressed that the media rightly pick up on."

"You affect the world by what you browse."

"The power of the Web is in its universality.
Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect."
