This tutorial will show you how to use your Raspberry Pi as a WiFi access point that blocks ads by default for any devices using it.

This is really neat in that it would work for your Android or iOS device, your Xbox 360, TiVo, laptop, and more without needing to customize any of those devices other than to use your Raspberry Pi as the access point for WiFi. Using an ad-blocker can be useful for conserving bandwidth, helping out low-power devices, or for keeping your sanity while browsing the web!

An ID theft service that sells SSNs, birth records, credit and background reports on millions of Americans has infiltrated computers at some of America's largest consumer and business data aggregators

The Web site ssndob[dot]ms (hereafter referred to simply as SSNDOB) has for the past two years marketed itself on underground cybercrime forums as a reliable and affordable service that customers can use to look up SSNs, birthdays and other personal data on any U.S. resident. Prices range from 50 cents to $2.50 per record, and from $5 to $15 for credit and background checks. Customers pay for their subscriptions using largely unregulated and anonymous virtual currencies, such as Bitcoin and WebMoney. Until very recently, the source of the data sold by SSNDOB has remained a mystery. That mystery began to unravel in March 2013, when teenage hackers allegedly associated with the hacktivist group UGNazi showed just how deeply the service's access went. The young hackers used SSNDOB to collect data for exposed.su, a Web site that listed the SSNs, birthdays, phone numbers, current and previous addresses for dozens of top celebrities - such as performers Beyonce, Kanye West and Jay Z - as well as prominent public figures, including First Lady Michelle Obama, CIA Director John Brennan, and then-FBI Director Robert Mueller.

It must be Wretched Wednesday -- the day after Black Tuesday. Watch out for automatic patches KB 2817630, KB 2810009, KB 2760411, KB 2760588, and KB 2760583

No sooner did Microsoft release the latest round of Black Tuesday patches, than screams of agony began sounding all over the Internet. At this point, I've seen verified problems with KB 2817630, KB 2810009, KB 2760411, KB 2760588, and KB 2760583. Here's what we know at this point. KB 2817630 is not a security patch, it's a gratuitously delivered functionality patch for Office 2013, and man has it had an impact on functionality. I've seen dozens of reports that installing this patch, possibly in conjunction with the KB 2810009 patch that is part of MS13-074, causes the folder pane in Outlook 2013 to disappear. An anonymous poster on the SANS Internet Storm Center offers this picture of the effect.

In the past week, we saw a series of DNS-based attacks on high profile domains that caused visitors trying to reach the affected domains to be redirected to IPs under the control of the Syrian Electronic Army.

During the incident, I spent some time helping the New York Times get their sites back to normal, and working with our friends at CloudFlare, Twitter, Google, DemandMedia, and others to get a handle on the extent of the SEA's hacks. There's plenty of coverage of how the attack happened and what you can do to help prevent this if you're a webmaster of a high-profile website (Hint: get a registry lock in place, not just a registrar lock), so I won't offer yet another opinion on that front. Instead, I want to focus on what this hack means for IT professionals-the people charged with protecting employees, sensitive or confidential corporate data, and enterprises at large. When extremely popular and trusted domains like the New York Times are compromised, the real danger lies in the huge number of users affected in such a short time. The attacks of the past week seem to have amounted to high-tech vandalism, but if the SEA had perpetrated a more malicious attack, millions of computers would have fallen prey in a few hours.

"THE ONLY PART OF THE GOVERNMENT THAT ACTUALLY LISTENS."

The National Security agency is harassing T-shirt makers, asking them to remove parody shirts featuring the NSA's eagle logo with the motto "The only part of the government that actually listens." Yes, the American people are paying their hard-earned tax money so the government can harass citizens into silence using copyright claims against them. The shirtmaker, Dan McCall issued a statement about the abuse: "We have been contacted by legal representatives from the National Security Agency, and at their request, have removed the product from the Zazzle Marketplace." The NSA is making the following copyright claims...

Dan Johnson of the group P.A.N.D.A (People Against the NDAA) talks with Ben Swann about the child pornography sent to him via a Tormail account.

The email, which claimed to have come from Stewart Rhodes (founder and national director of Oathkeepers), actually contained 6 PDFs with graphic child pornography. "Our IT tech estimates it took about 8 to 9 hours to put this [email] together...something this technologically sophisticated. It was speci´Čücally designed, number one, to be found; and number two, to implicate Stewart Rhodes in sending me the email and to implicate me in having the email on my computer," says Johnson, who spoke to Swann via Skype.

NSA Officers Caught Using Domestic Surveillance Program To Spy On Their Lovers!

August 24, 2013

While collecting data Edward Snowden was able to evade all safeguards at the NSA, leaving the agency puzzled at how he did it, according to new report. Officials worry that the ease with which he covered his tracks means another breach could happen.

Information logs exist to tell the government who tried to view or copy classified information without the proper clearance, but Snowden appears to have bypassed or deleted them, while working as a system administrator with contractor Booz Allen Hamilton in Hawaii. The revelations come from government officials speaking to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity, as they were prevented from publicly disclosing new information about the Snowden case. This is a worrying development for the Obama administration, which has been at pains to prove to the American public that the NSA's computer system cannot be taken advantage of so easily. Therefore, if Snowden could single-handedly circumvent its cyber defenses, the question stands as to whom else can gain instant access to the vast stream of data the clandestine organization intercepts every day.

National Security Agency officers on several occasions have channeled their agency's enormous eavesdropping power to spy on love interests, U.S. officials said.

The practice isn't frequent - one official estimated a handful of cases in the last decade - but it's common enough to garner its own spycraft label: LOVEINT. Spy agencies often refer to their various types of intelligence collection with the suffix of "INT," such as "SIGINT" for collecting signals intelligence, or communications; and "HUMINT" for human intelligence, or spying. The "LOVEINT" examples constitute most episodes of willful misconduct by NSA employees, officials said.

Sick of government spying, corporate monitoring, and overpriced ISPs? There's a cure for that.

Joseph Bonicioli mostly uses the same internet you and I do. He pays a service provider a monthly fee to get him online. But to talk to his friends and neighbors in Athens, Greece, he's also got something much weirder and more interesting: a private, parallel internet. He and his fellow Athenians built it. They did so by linking up a set of rooftop wifi antennas to create a "mesh," a sort of bucket brigade that can pass along data and signals. It's actually faster than the Net we pay for: Data travels through the mesh at no less than 14 megabits a second, and up to 150 Mbs a second, about 30 times faster than the commercial pipeline I get at home. Bonicioli and the others can send messages, video chat, and trade huge files without ever appearing on the regular internet. And it's a pretty big group of people: Their Athens Wireless Metropolitan Network has more than 1,000 members, from Athens proper to nearby islands. Anyone can join for free by installing some equipment. "It's like a whole other web," Bonicioli told me recently. "It's our network, but it's also a playground."
