#AceSecurityNews – First there was ‘ Fake News ‘ and Facebook provided much of it so that Soros and Gates could provide a ‘ Fake News Detector ‘ and spy on your private data through your browser so we NOW know who the real FAKES are Zuckerberg, Soros and Gates – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Jan.28: George Soros and Bill Gates Exposed as the force behind Facebook’s New ‘ Fake News Detector ‘ so they came up with a way to stop it with an extension on your browser …..
soros-gates.jpg?fit=790%2C415

After controversy erupted over Facebook’s plan to use left-leaning, liberal fact-checking organizations to flag “disputed” news — as part of the wholly vapid and unnecessary war on “fake news” — additional information has emerged that won’t quell the public’s misgivings on the situation. Billionaire globalist George Soros is among several liberal ‘luminaries’ funding the social media platform’s latest foray into soft censorship of dissent.

CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced the plan to combat fake news — incidentally, an issue he wasn’t concerned about until the left establishment applied pressure — but was met with consternation and outrage from constitutional rights advocates, alternative media, and right-leaning media for the singular viewpoint of the ostensible fact-checking organizations.

Indeed, Facebook’s announcement it would use third-party fact-checkers from the ‘trusted’ Poynter Institute should have sounded even louder alarm bells, as Poynter receives funding from Soros’ Open Society Foundations, Google, the Craig Newmark Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Omidyar Network, and other extreme left groups.

EBay founder Pierre Omidyar has donated over $30 million to the Clintons and their charities; the Gates have given the Clinton Foundation no less than $25 million; and the loathed George Soros — who donated an unprecedented $27 million to defeat George W. Bush in 2004 — reportedly spent over $25 million on Hillary Clinton and other Democrats this election cycle.

In short, these entities who will be deeming articles legitimate or “disputed” are anything but unbiased. As the Ron Paul Institute notes:

“Never fear. A group of selfless and unbiased philanthropists have stepped forward to offer millions of dollars to assist these ‘fact-checkers’ in their efforts to ferret out and disappear anything they determine to be ‘fake news.’ It seems rather curious, however, that these donors are all in fact in one way or other completely beholden to Hillary Clinton and the left-interventionists of the Democratic Party.”

As admittedly right-slanted Breitbart pointed out, “On Monday, just days before the announcement of the Facebook partnership, Poynter issued a press release revealing that Newmark donated $1 million to the group to fund a faculty chair in journalism ethics.”

That press release states:

“The gift will support a five-year program at Poynter that focuses on verification, fact-checking and accountability in journalism. It’s the largest donation Poynter’s ever received from an individual foundation.

“The Newmark Chair will expand on Poynter’s teaching in journalism ethics and develop certification programs for journalists that commit to ethical decision-making practices. The faculty member will also organize an annual conference on ethics issues at Poynter and be a regular contributor to Poynter.org.”

Ferreting out dis- and misinformation has little, if anything, to do with actual dis- and misinformation, and everything to do with Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment’s disgust with Donald Trump and their losing election campaign.

Zuckerberg’s plan will at first entail fact-checking by Politifact, Snopes, FactCheck.org, the Associated Press, and ABC News, with the option to rope more outlets into the effort in the future. But as the Ron Paul Institute reports, the bias in these groups — and their penchant for reporting false information — is astonishing:

“One problem: these organizations themselves are among the biggest purveyors of real fake news! PolitiFact has a whole website dedicated to exposing the organization’s biases. The popular site Snopes is in fact run by a husband and wife out of their home in California. Neither have any background in research or investigative techniques — they just use Google to make their determinations. As for AP and ABC News — they are mainstream media outlets with no clean hands when it comes to propagating fake stories. In fact the Associated Press has a long history of coordinating with governments to produce fake news.

“Political fact checking is not a science. On the contrary, more often than not it carries with it all the biases of any hyper-partisan organization.”

That point should not be overlooked — because as Facebook claims to be combating ‘fake news,’ employing organizations like the Open Society Foundations, Snopes, Google, and, particularly, Politifact in the plan evince the underlying motivation to further an establishment-left agenda — not combat actual, false reports, at all.

In fact, by using the International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) — funded by the Poynter Institute, and thus Soros, Gates, and the others — Zuckerberg is committing to liberal bias in Facebook newsfeeds and foregoing the last shreds of open idea-sharing the platform originally claimed to embrace.

Although the left often downplays the role Soros plays in global events, his alleged fingerprints in the affairs of nations from the Ukraine to Macedonia to the United States show little more than a pattern of self-interest and profiteering disguised as concern for the public interest.

“Soros has earned his megafortune in part by short selling currencies and causing economic crises. He is credited with breaking the pound on September 16, 1992 in a day that became known in Britain as ‘Black Wednesday.’ He reportedly made $1.2 billion from that crisis. In 2002, he was convicted for insider trading,” Breitbart’s Aaron Klein reports.

With clear favoritism for the left now on display, many conservative press organizations and alternative media outlets, whose bias largely doesn’t represent a particular ideology, have begun discussing leaving Facebook for any social media platform whose running modus operandi refuses censorship of any stripe.

It would behoove the U.S. populace to recognize the war against ‘fake news’ has nothing at all to do with actual fabricated reports and everything to do with funneling thought into one, accepted frame — that of the Democratic establishment.

Facebook, Soros, the Gates’, and Clintonites are trying to make acceptable the idea of spoon-feeding information, and the packaged narrative of news being somehow ‘fake’ does the job handily.

But losing the choice to view competing and sometimes unpleasant viewpoints is the steepest price to pay for the convenience of not being tasked with researching items on your own — and it’s the slipperiest of slopes in an increasingly authoritarian State.

#AceSecurityNews – A new variant of a well-known malware program known as ‘ GOOLICAN ‘ has infected more than one million phones around the world that run older versions of Google’s Android operating system, a security firm reported Wednesday – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Dec.01: Android malware infects 1 million phones globally

However because the #malware, dubbed Googlian, is delivered via apps downloaded from non-approved, third-party app sites, it only affects an estimated 1,000 users in the United States.

“The Gooligan campaign most heavily affects Android users in Asia. That’s likely because users there rely more on third-party app stores. In the United States, Android users stick to Google Play for apps,” said Check Point spokeswoman

Ali Donzanti.

The malware campaign, named Googlian, attacks phones running the Android 4 and 5 operating systems, known as Jelly Bean, KitKat and Lollipop, and according to Check Point Software Technologies can potentially access information from users’ other Google accounts.

However, Google said in a blog post that it had found no evidence of other fraudulent activity within affected Google accounts.

The software is part of “GhostPush,” a family of apps that once installed, try to download other apps. Google said that it has been tracking this family of malware since 2014 and so far has detected and prevented the installation of over 150,000 variations of Ghost Push.

The problem almost only affects Android phone users who have downloaded apps from a non-approved Android site. Those who buy their apps on the Google Play store are generally safe, Check Point said.

Google said it has contacted affected users, removed apps associated with the problem and added new protections to its Verify Apps technology.

The problem is similar to an issue that surfaced with malware that could affect iPhones running non-Apple approved apps in 2015.

The moral of the story is that consumers should stick with legitimate sources for their apps, said Dimitri Sirota, CEO of BigID, a data protection company.

“The best policy for avoiding this type of unfortunate situation is to look at the reputation of the purveyor — buy your Gucci from a Gucci store, get your news from a publication with a reputation at stake and download your apps from certified stores like Google Play,” he said.

Google also reminded users of Android phones to keep their devices up to date and thus secure.

Because Ghost Push only uses publicly known vulnerabilities, devices with up-to-date security patches have not been affected,” its blog post said.

#AceSecurityNews – MOSCOW: Putins ‘ Red Web’ joining together with China’s Firewall to integrate the country ’s system of internet filtering and control, monitoring your PRIVATE DATA through a state provided Chinese private company Huawei – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Nov.29: Putin brings China’s Great Firewall to Russia in cybersecurity pact

Russia has been working on incorporating elements of China’s Great Firewall into the “Red Web”, the country’s system of internet filtering and control, after unprecedented cyber collaboration between the countries.

A decision earlier this month to block the networking site LinkedIn in Russia is the most visible in a series of measures to bring the internet under greater state control.

Legislation was announced this month that gives the Kremlin primacy over cyberspace – the exchange points, domain names and cross-border fibre-optic cables that make up the architecture of the internet.

China and Russia: the world’s new superpower axis?

In the summer, a measure known as Yarovaya’s law was introduced, which requires Russia’s telecoms and internet providers to store users’ data for six months and metadata for three years.

A group of Kremlin and security officials is driving the offensive against internet freedoms. The government fears the web could be used to mobilise protesters and disseminate dangerous ideas and information and it is looking for ways to switch off connections in times of crisis.

The strategy is being developed in close cooperation with China after a string of high-level meetings in Beijing and Moscow this year. At their first cybersecurity forum, in April, top Chinese officials and their Russian counterparts gathered in Moscow for the talks. Delegates included Lu Wei, the head of China’s state internet information office, Fang Binxing, the so-called father of the Great Firewall and Igor Shchyogolev, President Vladimir Putin’s assistant on internet issues and former minister of communications.

“The principal agreement to have a forum was reached by Igor Shchyogolev and Fang Binxing at a meeting in December 2015 in Beijing,” said Denis Davydov, the executive director of the misleadingly named League of Safe Internet, a government-affiliated group that has drafted internet-filtering legislation and recruited teams of volunteers to patrol the web for “harmful content”.

Earlier this year, the security council secretary, Nikolai Patrushev, who was head of the Russian Federal Security Service during Putin’s 2000-08 presidency, had two meetings with Chinese politburo members on information security; and in June, Putin went to Beijing to sign a joint communique about cyberspace.

What the Russians want most from China is technology. Russia has no means of handling the vast amounts of data required by Yarovaya’s law, and it cannot rely on western technologies because of sanctions.

However, the Chinese are willing to lend a hand. In August it was reported that Blat, the Russian telecoms equipment manufacturer, was in talks with Huawei, the Chinese telecoms company, to buy technologies for data storage and produce servers to implement Yarovaya’s law.

The Chinese officials also ensured senior Huawei staff were present at key information security conferences in Russia, and the company was the major sponsor of the Russian information security forum held in Beijing in October.

“Huawei is essentially an arm of the Chinese state, whoever nominally owns it,” said Gordon Chang, author of The Coming Collapse of China. “Its origins are murky, its growth far too fast for a private company in China, state officials support its efforts, and the absence of competition from state enterprises is another important tell.”

The Russians apparently see no other option than to invite Chinese heavyweights into the heart of its IT strategy. “China remains our only serious ‘ally’, including in the IT sector,” said a source in the Russian information technology industry, adding that despite hopes that Russian manufacturers would fill the void created by sanctions “we are in fact actively switching to Chinese”.

In Russia, the strategy for greater collaboration with China has been developed and promoted by top-level Kremlin officials, generals and businessmen. These include Patrushev, Shchyogolev and Konstantin Malofeev, the billionaire founder of Orthodox channel Tsargrad TV who is the subject of EU sanctions for his connections to separatists in Ukraine. The group is believed to be the driving force behind Yarovaya’s law.

On 7 November, China adopted a controversial cybersecurity law that revived international concerns about censorship in the country. In a sign that collaboration between the countries is mutually beneficial, the legislation echoes Russia’s rules on data localisation and requires “critical information infrastructure operators” to be stored domestically – the law LinkedIn fell foul of. It seems the exchange of ideas has already borne fruit.

#AceSecurityNews – Social media can influence your VIEWS on important issues such as the US ELECTION if the news your are reading and the headlines can slant your view as Zuckerberg’s denial of FAKE NEWS takes hold in the media – CHAT BOTS contribute to YOUR VIEWS and help create THEIR NEWS – BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU SAY – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Nov.12: Facebook: Social media really can change what people believe Mashable reported on Friday
Https%3a%2f%2fblueprint-api-production.s3.amazonaws.com%2fuploads%2fcard%2fimage%2f282575%2f774de2f853ce442f989f82d7c7fb2751

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg does not believe that fake news on his social network influenced the election. Facebook has recently been plagued with criticism that partisan stories posted on the site helped to influence the U.S. presidential election.

The outcry was so strong that on Thursday Zuckerberg spoke out to defend his company, saying at a conference in San Francisco that the idea is “pretty crazy.” “There is a profound lack of empathy in asserting that the only reason someone could have voted the way they did is because they saw fake news,” he said.

But recent findings from the Pew Research Center suggest the opposite is true, as 20 percent of social media users say they’ve changed their stance on a political issue because of something they saw on sites like Facebook. The shift was usually pessimistic this was the result

Social media causes some users to rethink their views on an issue
// Pew Research Center

Exposure to a range of new ideas and viewpoints that many social media users encounter can occasionally cause people to change their minds about political issues or candidates.

People who said they had changed their minds on [the presidential] candidates often said that social media pointed their opinion in a more negative direction,” Pew research associate Monica Anderson said in a post about the survey that was published Monday….

#AceSecurityNews – Full Report: #DDoS Third attack hit last night with everyone blaming everyone a security firm and a writer have said it is most likely linked to ‘ Internet of All Things (IOT) where all devices are linked together of course the simple answer is DON’T LINK ALL YOUR DEVICES TOGETHER – @AceNewsServices

#AceNewsReport – Oct.22: This is an update on Fridays #DDoS Attacks that took down major sites on both social and news media sites that seems to be linked but not proven to ‘ The Internet of All Things ‘ or #IOT as Dyn says #DDoS attacks are coming from millions of IP address at the same time and one source appears to be Internet-connected devices – CNBC

Dyn reports incident has been resolved‘ after 3rd denial of service attack reported nearly 2 hours ago
Dyn says 1st #DDoS attack targeted DNS infrastructure in the US-East region, 2nd attack was ‘distributed in a more global fashion‘; more in-depth analysis expected at later date – statement
http://bit.ly/2dwdApL

Brian Krebs, who covers security news, says distributed denial of service attacks have increased “thanks largely to the broad availability of tools for compromising and leveraging the collective firepower of so-called Internet of Things devices.” Krebs notes that today’s attacks on Dyn – which impacted Twitter, Spotify, Reddit and others – came just hours after a company researcher presented a talk in Dallas on #DDoS attacks. Krebs himself was hit by a major DDoS attack last month that was so large it caused Akamai to kick his blog off their network due to approximately 665 Gigabits of traffic per second
http://bit.ly/2dvHPNy

Flashpoint Researchers: Security intelligence firm Flashpoint’s researchers report they have observed a Mirai botnet attacking Dyn. Forbes reports this botnet consists of thousands of Internet-connected devices such as DVRs and cameras, which are vulnerable to simple hacks. Dyn told CNBC that the “Internet of Things” devices are one source of the ongoing attacks, which have been occurring for about nine hours. http://bit.ly/2eoVwCt

In a tweet, WikiLeaks urged supporters to “stop taking down the US internet,” saying Julian Assange is still alive and the organization is still publishing.
#WikiLeaks has been publishing emails connected to Hillary Clinton campaign, and U.S. officials believe Russia is tied to the hack. Officials have not said who is responsible for Friday’s attacks on Dyn’s DNS infrastructure, which is causing widespread disruption. However, an intelligence official told NBC News it is unlikely these are state sponsored attacks. http://bit.ly/2ep4hwd
