Firefox Addons für die Privatssphäre
Ich möchte auf ein paar Firefox Addons/Erweiterungen hinweisen, die meines Erachtens bei jeder Firefox Installation dabei sein sollten. Dazu sei gesagt, dass jedes Addon die Geschwindigket des Surfens mehr oder weniger verlangsamen oder verschnellern kann. Also je mehr Addons, desto unterschiedlich lang kann das Laden einer Webseite dauern (wir reden hier von Millisekunden).

Beispiel Beim Laden einer Webseite muss das Addon die Webseite untersuchen, ob zum Beispiel Werbung von einer dritten Seiten geladen werden soll. Dieser Vorgang braucht natürlich ein bisschen Zeit. Wenn dann allerdings sämtliche Werbeseiten entfernt wurden und diese nicht mehr geladen werden müssen, gewinnt man wieder Zeit damit, denn die Webseite wird schneller angezeigt.

Facebook uploaded 1.5m users’ e-mail contacts without their consent probably to create shadow profiles - Only YOU can make a difference here…


Facebook harvested the e-mail contacts of 1.5 million new users who joined the site since 2016 and did so without their consent.

The social network has said it “unintentionally uploaded” the e-mail contacts after asking some users to e-mail passwords when signing up to the site as a way of verifying their identity — a practice widely criticized by security experts.

According to a report by Business Insider, those who did enter their password then saw a pop-up message telling them their contacts were being imported to Facebook, without asking for permission to do so first.

The incident is the latest in a growing list of data privacy breaches to hit the social network.

Facebook said the flaw had been caused by a feature which had allowed users to confirm their account and import their e-mail contacts at the same time; however, a redesign in 2016 had removed some of the language which explained this but was still uploading contacts in some cases.

Xin chào mọi người,
On June 5, 2007, Korean Air said that it would create a new low-cost carrier called Jin Air in Korea to compete with Korea's KTX high-speed railway network system, which offered cheaper fares and less stringent security procedures compared to air travel. Jin Air started its scheduled passenger service from Seoul to Jeju on July 17, 2008. Korean Air announced that some of its 737s and A300s would be given to Jin Air.

EU gives 'high-level' protection to whistleblowers - BBC News

The new legislation gives whistleblowers who report breaches of EU law a "high level of protection".

It establishes "safe channels" for reporting the information, both within an organisation and to public authorities.

Mark Zuckerberg leveraged Facebook user data to fight rivals and help friends, leaked documents show

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg oversaw plans to consolidate the social network’s power and control competitors by treating its users’ data as a bargaining chip, while publicly proclaiming to be protecting that data, according to about 4,000 pages of leaked company documents largely spanning 2011 to 2015 and obtained by NBC News.

Mark Zuckerberg leveraged Facebook user data to fight rivals and help friends, leaked documents show - Facebook’s leaders seriously discussed selling access to user data — and privacy was an ongoing afterthought


It's not like this is a big surprise to many... but the pattern has become very clear that this type of behaviour was standard operating procedure at Facebook. Despite Mark's assurances in the early days that the data would always belong to users and be respected, no such thing happened behind the scenes and this is unethical. This is not your vehicle's petrol consumption data being exposed, it is your very personal information not intended to be shared outside those you shared it with (and then even not shared such as mobile phone numbers for two-factor authentication).

Facebook has also shown over the years that they just keep apologising after being caught out and then promise to learn from the experience... but don't. It's clear that governments are still wondering how to deal with but the remaining consumers using Facebook really need to make a stand of their own. I deleted my Facebook account more than a year back and I'm still alive, I lived through G+ shutting down this month and I'm still alive on social media and made new friends. You may not worry about your own... Show more...

I am glad to see you are concerned about #facebook and #privacy. Here is my end-to-end, encrypted email address. It will take you about two minutes to learn how to do this sort of thing. It will point the way to a better internet, and I think, a better society!

“The hand of ‘democracy’ squeezes the throat of freedom”, or Russian Officials React to Julian Assange's Arrest

How Kremlin defends "the hero" ;)

Russian officials have spoken out on Britain’s arrest of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange on Thursday, expressing hopes that the whistleblower’s rights will be respected.

Assange has been accused of collaborating with the Russian government, most notably to release emails that Russian hackers stole during the 2016 U.S. presidential election via the Wikileaks whistleblowing platform. Assange ran the platform from within the Ecuadorian Embassy in London for seven years to avoid Swedish rape charges.

Julian Assange arrested at Ecuadorian embassy in London

Thu 11 Apr 2019 11.12

Julian Assange has been arrested at the Ecuadorian embassy in London, where the WikiLeaks founder was granted refuge in 2012 while on bail in the UK over sexual assault allegations against him in Sweden.

Assange, 47, who has spent almost seven years at the embassy after seeking refuge there to avoid extradition to Sweden, was detained after the Ecuadorian government withdrew his asylum, Scotland Yard said. He was held on a warrant issued by Westminster magistrates court on 29 June 2012 when he failed to surrender to the court.

Scotland Yard said: “He has been taken into custody at a central London police station where he will remain, before being presented before Westminster magistrates court as soon as is possible.
