Au Brésil, une fuite de données critiques déballe la vie de la quasi-totalité des citoyens

“C’est une des plus grosses fuites de l’histoire : gigantesque en volume, dangereuse dans le détail des données, très facile à se procurer. Difficile d’imaginer pire désastre. Mardi 19 janvier, l’entreprise de sécurité PSafe identifiait une fuite très inquiétante, puisqu’elle permettait d’accéder à plusieurs données critiques de plus de 220 millions de Brésiliens, soit plus que le total de la population (et pour cause : la base contient aussi des données de personnes décédées).”

Comment des utilisateurs de Reddit ont manipulé la Bourse et fait perdre de l’argent à un grand fonds d’investissements

Le forum r/wallstreetbets, qui rassemble de nombreux traders.

“Par le passé, d’autres actions ont déjà subi une hausse importante, bien que temporaire, en raison de l’attention portée par r/wallstreetbets. Mais la hausse stratosphérique de l’action GameStop a braqué de nouveaux regards sur le forum, si bien que plusieurs experts en droit se demandent, sur le site Market Watch, si ses membres n’ont pas manipulé le marché en se coordonnant et ainsi enfreint la loi.”

“Sadly, despite the team’s groundbreaking technical achievements over the last 9 years — doing many things previously thought impossible, like precisely navigating balloons in the stratosphere, creating a mesh network in the sky, or developing balloons that can withstand the harsh conditions of the stratosphere for more than a year — the road to commercial viability has proven much longer and riskier than hoped. So we’ve made the difficult decision to close down Loon. In the coming months, we’ll begin winding down operations and it will no longer be an Other Bet within Alphabet.”

Parler partially reappears with support from Russian technology firm

“On Monday, Parler’s website was reachable again, though only with a message from its chief executive saying he was working to restore functionality. The internet protocol address it used is owned by DDos-Guard, which is controlled by two Russian men and provides services including protection from distributed denial of service attacks, infrastructure expert Ronald Guilmette told Reuters. ”

“To drive home this point, the complaint includes 15 examples of such posts, which include graphic calls to violence against tech CEOs, school teachers, and professional athletes. In some cases, the comments also refer to specific dates and targets for violence, encouraging users to form militia groups and “acquire targets.”Amazon says it submitted more than 100 such comments to Parler in the weeks leading up to the suspension.
Content warning: these threats are graphic, violent, and racist; use discretion.”

Parler goes dark, sues Amazon to demand immediate reinstatement

Parler goes dark, sues Amazon to demand immediate reinstatement

“Parler may be offline, but its content will not be forgotten. One quick-thinking researcher, who goes by the Twitter handle @donk_enby, launched an archiving effort on Saturday to preserve as much Parler content as possible. She began with content from January 6, she told Gizmodo, but was able rapidly to expand her scope. Eventually, she ended up capturing 99.9 percent of all the publicly available content on Parler, she said Sunday. Although some of the content donk_enby pulled may include videos from deleted or private posts, reports of a Parler « hack » that have been circulating on Reddit and Twitter are false, she said.”

As Predicted, Google’s Search Preference Menu Eliminates DuckDuckGo

“The central problem with Google’s search preference menu is that it is a pay-to-play auction in which only the highest bidders are on the menu. This auction format incentivizes bidders to bid what they can expect to profit per user selection. The long-term result is that the participating Google alternatives must give most of their preference menu profits to Google! Google’s auction further incentivizes search engines to be worse on privacy, to increase ads, and to not donate to good causes, because, if they do those things, then they could afford to bid higher. ”
