    The U.S. military is buying the granular movement data of people around the world, harvested from innocuous-seeming apps, Motherboard has learned. The most popular app among a group Motherboard analyzed connected to this sort of data sale is a Muslim prayer and Quran app that has more than 98 million downloads worldwide. Others include a Muslim dating app, a popular Craigslist app, an app for following storms, and a "level" app that can be used to help, for example, install shelves in a bedroom.

    Everything is burning

    Everything is burning

    In a more-depressing-than-usual episode, we try to talk about APT's (well, they're password spraying so there's nothing advanced about it).

    Chat a bit about the VDBIR.

    Inevitably we go down the dark dark hole where everything is burning.

    Season 2 | Lockdown

    We return after a seasonal break to a very different world which has thrown us off balance. 

    So, there is a lot of pontification. Talk about COVID19, phishing scams, what organisations can do in this time to beef up their security, what organised criminals are doing, and of course, the most important issue of all... Tiger King!

    The Weaponization of Nostalgia: How Afghan Miniskirts Became the Latest Salvo in the War on Terror
    https://ajammc.com/2017/09/06/weaponization-nostalgia-afghan-miniskirts/ 

    In the 1979 – at the end of Afghanistan’s “Golden Age“ – only 18% of Afghans were literate – and average life expectancy was only just above 40, meaning that half of Afghans died before that age.

    The average Afghan was certainly not wearing miniskirts and attending Kabul University, nor were they taking fashionably-dressed vacations to the mountains in imported cars. This was a very small urban elite and middle-class segment of society shown in the pictures of Kabul in the 1970s, and one that did not reflect the conditions of the majority of Afghans.

    Zomg cyber graffiti! A government website was ‘defaced’ with pro-Iran messaging and an image of a bloodied Trump. Hackers claimed responsibility.
    Blood runs in rivulets down President Trump’s chin as a fist punches his left cheek. Two golden missiles, each emblazoned with the Iranian flag, shoot across the bottom of the illustration.
    “This is message from Islamic Republic Of Iran,” reads text in English.
