Google Photos video backups sent to strangers last year

“Google this evening began alerting Takeout users about the “technical issue.” From November 21-25, 2019, those that requested backups could have had videos in Google Photos “incorrectly exported to unrelated users’ archives.” In requesting a backup, some of your videos — but not pictures — might be visible to random users that were also downloading their data through Google Takeout.”

Orange et Huawei : une amitié à géographie variable

“Le groupe vient de signer, discrètement, un accord avec Huawei qui s’occupera désormais du cloud des clients français de l’opérateur. Les services secrets, qui notaient la proximité entre la firme et Pékin, s’étranglent : les données des clients iront directement sur les serveurs chinois. L’opérateur nuance : cela ne concerne pas les entreprises, et, toujours selon le Canard, c’est à cause de Free, « si on veut rester compétitifs sans licencier, il faut bien qu’on noue des alliances avec les acteurs les moins chers du marché » se plaignait un cadre de l’opérateur.”

IBM to Acquire Red Hat, Completely Changing The Cloud Landscape and Becoming World’s #1 Hybrid Cloud Provider

Red Hat & IBM

“Research shows that 80 percent of business workloads have yet to move to the cloud, held back by the proprietary nature of today’s cloud market. This prevents portability of data and applications across multiple clouds, data security in a multi-cloud environment and consistent cloud management. IBM and Red Hat will be strongly positioned to address this issue and accelerate hybrid multi-cloud adoption. Together, they will help clients create cloud-native business applications faster, drive greater portability and security of data and applications across multiple public and private clouds, all with consistent cloud management.”

What Your Car Knows About You

Potential Data Sources

“Car makers are collecting massive amounts of data from the latest cars on the road. Now, they’re figuring out how to make money off it. With millions of cars rolling off dealer lots with built-in connectivity, auto companies are gaining access to unprecedented amounts of real-time data that allow them to track everything from where a car is located to how hard it is braking and whether or not the windshield wipers are on.
The data is generated by the car’s onboard sensors and computers, and then stored by the auto maker in cloud-based servers. Some new cars have as many as 100 built-in processors that generate data”.

This robot uses AI to find Waldo, thereby ruining Where’s Waldo

“Built by creative agency Redpepper, There’s Waldo zeroes in and finds Waldo with a sniper-like accuracy. The metal robotic arm is a Raspberry Pi-controlled uArm Swift Pro which is equipped with a Vision Camera Kit that allows for facial recognition. The camera takes a photo of the page, which then uses OpenCV to find the possible Waldo faces in the photo. The faces are then sent to be analyzed by Google’s AutoML Vision service, which has been trained on photos of Waldo. If the robot determines a match with 95 percent confidence or higher, it’ll point to all the Waldos it can find on the page”.

Les États-Unis subissent la plus grosse fuite de données d’électeurs de l’histoire

Que signifie « assumer pleinement la responsabilité » d’une telle erreur ?

« Plus de 25 terabytes de données sensibles (adresse, orientation politique…) concernant 198 millions de citoyens américains étaient accessibles sur un serveur en ligne non sécurisé. En cause : une société d’analyse de données recrutée par le Parti républicain pendant la campagne présidentielle pour mieux cibler les électeurs potentiels de Donald Trump. […] Deep Root a reconnu son erreur et sécurisé les fichiers :   “Nous assumons pleinement la responsabilité de cette situation”. »

Police seek Amazon Echo data in murder case

As a refresher, Echo only captures audio and streams it to the cloud when the device hears the wake word « Alexa. » A ring on the top of the device turns blue to give a visual indication that audio is being recorded. Those clips, or « utterances » as the company calls them, are stored in the cloud until a customer deletes them either individually or all at once. When that’s done, the « utterances » are permanently deleted. What’s more, the microphones on an Echo device can be manually turned off at any time.
