Among the many facts recently revealed about the NSA’s constitutionally questionable collection of personal information, one that I find especially troubling is the government’s claim that it can legally prevent people from telling others what it does

The NSA has apparently ordered Microsoft to turn over some information to them, but has also ordered Microsoft to keep that activity secret. Microsoft has appealed to Attorney General Eric Holder to allow the company to tell the public what the federal government has forced them to do. I am not opposed to secrecy in general. Businesses keep secrets (a well-known one is the formula for Coca Cola, which is a trade secret), and the whole NSA issue is over the right of individuals to keep their personal information private. These are cases in which individuals and businesses keep secrets because they want to.

It all started last August, when we identified several Command and Control servers responsible of the activities of the Cutwail spamming botnet.

Thanks to our contacts with different Internet Service Providers, we managed to take down 16 of these servers and we obtained access to the data stored on them. At first, this operation had a big impact on the botnet's activity, reducing the amount of spam sent by Cutwail by a lot (from our estimates, the servers we took down accounted for half to two thirds of the overall ones). Unfortunately, after a few weeks, the Cutwail crew set up new Command and Control servers, and the spam activity began again. Currently, after the Rustock takedown from last week, Cutwail is the second largest spamming botnet after Lethic.

To give people a better Firefox experience, we’re changing the way plugins work. Earlier this year we talked about our plan for putting users in control of their plugins.

We are now seeing these plans take shape in the latest version of Firefox Aurora. To give people more control over their browser, Firefox will no longer activate most plugins by default. When a site tries to use a plugin, the user will be able to choose whether to enable the plugin on that site.

A recent report by Citizen Lab uncovered that commercial spyware produced by Gamma International is designed to trick people into thinking it's Mozilla Firefox.

We've sent Gamma a cease and desist letter today demanding that these illegal practices stop immediately. As an open source project trusted by hundreds of millions of people around the world, defending Mozilla's trademarks from this type of abuse is vital to our brand, our users and the continued success of our mission. Mozilla has a longstanding history of protecting users online and was named the Most Trusted Internet Company for Privacy in 2012 by the Ponemon Institute. We cannot abide a software company using our name to disguise online surveillance tools that can be - and in several cases actually have been - used by Gamma's customers to violate citizens' human rights and online privacy.

Gadgets proved especially popular in my family this past holiday season, as I'm sure it did for many others.

Some folks may be looking to add some parental controls to these devices: you might be looking to block adult content on your iPad if you got one for your family this season. I'm happy to report that, no matter what new Internet-connected device you added to your network this season, OpenDNS can protect it.

The holidays are upon us, but it's not all gift giving, tree trimming and eggnog drinking. This is also the time of year when scammers come out in force.

While OpenDNS is the single best way to protect yourself and your loves ones from phishing and forgeries, education is key. To complement our great phishing quiz my colleague Erin posted about here, we've compiled a list of the most common, and tricky, holiday phishing scams. Brush up, take note and avoid getting duped.

Last week I had the privilege of being in Washington DC to talk to a number of distinguished members of Congress along with top leadership from The Whitehouse to urge them to reject two pieces of legislation which would be detrimental to the Internet.

The two bills (Stop Online Piracy Act in the House of Representatives and Protect IP Act in the Senate) have a noble goal, reducing online piracy. Unfortunately, these bills come at a terrible price - they will force the creation of a "great firewall of America" used to censor websites that are hosted outside of the US and they will burden Internet companies with liability and litigation that will force new jobs and businesses to be created overseas.

OpenDNS runs, the largest clearinghouse of phishing data on the Internet. So we're often the first to see new, particularly sneaky phishing attacks. The one we're sharing with you today is both of those things.

At the surface, this scam looks like hundreds of thousands of others we've seen over the years. It impersonates an HSBC Bank website and encourages people to enter their login credentials, which would then, presumably, be stolen and used nefariously. While any kind of phishing is gross, it's what's happening behind the scenes here that's particularly alarming. Simply put, the scam actually turns 404 errors into phishing websites. So this phishing website returned 404 headers to your browser, which normally tell your browser that the website you're trying to load is down or can't be found. Instead of saying a page couldn't be found, their "error" page just looked like HSBC Bank's website to visitors.

ISPs are up to no good and we can help undo their damage.

For the past several months Christian Kreibich and Nicholas Weaver over at the International Computer Science Institute in Berkeley, California, have been tracking a laundry list of ISPs to confirm what they thought to be true: that the ISPs are intercepting customers' search queries and surreptitiously redirecting them to advertiser or affiliate links. What's being alleged is that when the ISP customer types something into his or her own browser address bar, instead of making a DNS request or sending the traffic to the browser-configured search provider, the ISP decides which page the customer is taken to and just sends them there.
