Facebook is accused of leaving staff members 'angry, depressed and voiceless'A former Facebook contractor has labelled her employment at the company as "the most toxic working experience of my life" and described "debilitating problems" at Facebook's Trending desk caused by sexism, intimidation and aggressive working conditions.In an article published by the Guardian the former employee, who worked on Facebook's news curation platform, claimed that women were routinely ignored and encouraged against speaking up for themselves, while reports of sexism were met with a blind eye by supervisors.Those numbers are telling when you consider that curators are paid well starting salaries are between $55,000-$65,000 £37,860-£44,740 , at least by most media industry standards, and are provided free meals while at work."Facebook has found itself at the centre of controversy following reports that the company routinely suppresses right-wing news from its trending topics news feed.Our review team writes the topic descriptions with the aim of accurately describing the real-world event.If the event is being reported on or discussed across multiple media sites, the team tries to accurately reflect the breadth of the conversation.
"We've already had some indications of that," said James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, according to AP.But the revelation is not totally surprising: The Chinese government reportedly hacked both Obama and McCain in 2008, and hackers tried repeatedly to break into the campaign accounts of Obama and Romney in 2012.The Romney campaign was "under constant attack," Digital Director Zac Moffatt told Time Magazine."Four or five times a week."According to CNN, Clapper said both the FBI and DHS were working to educate the campaigns about cyber threats.Hackers working for foreign governments can gain valuable insight into a presidential candidate's mindset before they take office, or uncover private communications that might give their country a leg up in diplomatic negotiations.In 2008, for example, a letter Sen. John McCain sent to the president of Taiwan was intercepted by hackers from China.And on the flip side, the US government does much the same thing to many world leaders, as the massive leaks out of the National Security Agency from former contractor Edward Snowden have demonstrated.The Clinton and Trump campaigns did not immediately respond to a request for comment.Read the original article on Tech Insider.More from Tech Insider:12 of history's greatest philosophers reveal the secret to happinessThe nation's top spy says hackers are spying on presidential candidatesThis wearable exoskeleton could one day turn your grandparents into cyborgsA new trailer for the 'Ghostbusters' reboot is here and it's much better than the firstSunday s 'Game of Thrones' director was surprised by fan reactions to this brief character interactionNOW WATCH: Hackers showed us how easy it is to secretly clone a security badgeLoading video...

HEIKO JUNGE/AFP/Getty Images PALO ALTO -- A Tesla contractor said Wednesday it may terminate its relationship with a Slovenian company that records show paid as little as $5 an hour to workers expanding the electric car company's Fremont plant.The statement came after Tesla CEO Elon Musk said in a tweet that his company paid $55 an hour for the work.Eisenmann, a German manufacturer of industrial systems hired by Tesla, announced it would investigate allegations that its subcontractor ISM Vuzem paid a work force of about 140 Eastern European men substandard wages.LiPo Ching/Bay Area News Group The newspaper's investigation, "The Hidden Workforce Expanding Tesla's Factory," profiled Gregor Lesnik, a construction worker brought in from Slovenia to help build the new high-tech paint shop.Lesnik sued Vuzem, Eisenmann and Tesla, claiming he and scores of other Eastern European workers were brought to the U.S. on questionable visas and paid substandard wages.AdvertisementThe complex business arrangement brought several companies together to complete the plant expansion, designed to help Tesla boost manufacturing from about 50,000 vehicles last year to a half-million in 2018.Vuzem hired Lesnik and the other imported workers to build a ventilation system.Along with his tweet, Musk posted a portion of a letter from Eisenmann President Mark West to Tesla that said Eisenmann and Vuzem agreed to an hourly rate of $55.
Stephen Lam / ReutersSAN FRANCISCO, May 23 Reuters - Facebook Inc will no longer rely on a top-10 list of websites to help choose items for its Trending Topics section, even though an internal probe showed no evidence of political bias in the selection process, the company said on Monday.The world s largest social media network said in a blogpost that changes include clearer guidelines for human editors on the Trending Topics team, more training to emphasize avoiding ideological or political basis, and more robust review procedures.The internal investigation was prompted by a letter from Republican Sen. John Thune earlier this month demanding that the company explain how it selects news articles for its trending list.The allegations were reported by technology news website Gizmodo, which did not identify the ex-contractor.It said it was unable to substantiate any allegations of politically motivated suppression of particular subjects or sources.Any attempt by a neutral and inclusive social media platform to censor or manipulate political discussion is an abuse of trust and inconsistent with the values of an open Internet, Thune said.

Crims watched Active Directory closely, then sprung their attack with off-the-shelf malwareSwiss defence contractor RUAG and the country's GovCERT have revealed the details of a 2014 network breach in which attackers got access to a stunning 23 GB of data.The breach was only discovered earlier this year, with to very little fanfare until earlier this month, when NZZ am Sonntag reported that the attackers used their access to RUAG to also gain access to the secret Swiss DRA10 special forces unit in English via Swissinfo here .The reason for publication, the organisation explains, is to provide insight and protection.We decided to publish this report to give organisations the chance to check their networks for similar infections, and to show the modus operandi of the attacker group .The SANS Institute's Rick Wanner notes that the attack doesn't seem to have been particularly stealthy or advanced.The latter ones never actually contacted any C servers, but instead received their tasks via named pipes from a communication drone, and also returned stolen data this way.

The company's announcement comes after an internal investigation into bias in the selection of news stories for the section, which is separate from the main News Feed.Earlier this month, a former Facebook contractor accused the company's editors of deliberately suppressing conservative news.The allegations were reported by technology news website Gizmodo, which did not identify the ex-contractor.But it said it was introducing several changes, including the elimination of a top 10 list of approved websites, more training and clearer guidelines to help human editors avoid ideological or political bias, and more robust review procedures."Our investigation could not fully exclude the possibility of isolated improper actions or unintentional bias in the implementation of our guidelines or policies," Colin Stretch, Facebook's General Counsel, wrote in a company blog post.Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg met more than a dozen conservative politicians and media personalities last week to discuss issues of trust in the social network.
Privacy advocates insist that strong encryption is not only vital for the operation of the internet but also to protect individuals from pervasive state surveillance as revealed by NSA contractor-turned whisteblower Edward Snowden , and that any mandatory backdoors would weaken protection for everyone."While no practical encryption mechanism is perfect in its design and implementation, decryption appears to be less and less feasible for law enforcement purposes," it notes, and warns that government ordered backdoors into encryption are likely to fail to have the required impact"Criminals can easily circumvent such weakened mechanisms and make use of the existing knowledge on cryptography to develop or buy their own solutions without backdoors or key escrow.""The good news is that the information needs to be unencrypted at some point to be useful to the criminals," they say -- which means instead of focusing on encryption police can also consider undercover operations and infiltration into criminal groups, or "getting access to the communication devices beyond the point of encryption, for instance by means of live forensics on seized devices or by lawful interception on those devices while still used by suspects".However, there is no doubt that malevolent parties use the same techniques to conceal their criminal activities and identities."When circumvention is not possible yet access to encrypted information is imperative for security and justice, then feasible solutions to decryption without weakening the protective mechanisms must be offered, both in legislation and through continuous technical evolution," they say.But it's almost certainly a more realistic and effective way forward than trying to legislate backdoors which just won't work even if the statement doesn't rule out legislation entirely .
Cyber is a normal part of military operations and needs to be considered as such."This ephemeral space that's all around us, literally, is a space where operations can be performed against us," Frank Pound, a program manager who leads DARPA's "Plan X" cyber warfare platform, told Tech Insider.The unique thing about cyber activity and defense is you re talking about building a couple thousand lines of code or having a certain electronic device, or some sort of cyber capability.But before they get to the military's "hacker university," enlisted soldiers need to score high technical scores on the military entrance exam, and sign on for five years of service, instead of the normal four-year tour.Due to the classified nature of their work, cyber training is often conducted in secure compartmented information facilities SCIFs where cell phones and other outside recording devices are not allowed, and all soldiers will have to obtain a Top Secret clearance prior to being assigned to their unit.Soldiers go through a lengthy period of training after basic training: Six months spent at the Navy's Center for Information Dominance in Pensacola, Florida followed by six months at Fort Gordon.Army officers go through their own training program at the Georgia base, called Cyber Basic Officer Leader Course."More or less, we all engage in some manner of warfare these days, we just don't go to 'war' over it," Moss said.How foreign nations would likely respond to being hacked by the US is something that is considered before any offensive operation, according to a top secret presidential policy directive leaked by ex-NSA contractor Edward Snowden.The document, made public in 2013, listed cyber attacks resulting in "loss of life, significant responsive actions against the United States, significant damage to property, serious adverse US foreign policy consequences, or serious economic impact" as requiring presidential approval.And for US military hackers who may be on a battlefield in Iraq, Syria, or elsewhere, their self-imposed rules for cyber attacks are clear:"Military attacks will be directed only at military targets," reads the Pentagon's cyberspace operations document.But what of cyber attacks that have potentially devastating effects on foreign nations, such as US-made worms that cause nuclear centrifuges to fall apart, or alleged Russian-made malware that knocks out power and heat to people in the dead of winter?Are these "acts of war"?"But, he added: "There's nothing that necessarily stops us, except the political and diplomatic ramifications.
The National Security Agency is perhaps the most secretive of the 17 intelligence agencies that make up the sophisticated US spy network.Created in secret in 1952, the NSA was once jokingly referred to as "No Such Agency" or "Never Say Anything."But now, especially after a flood of top secret documents were leaked by former contractor Edward Snowden, NSA is a household name.The agency, previously shy about official statements and transparency, now has websites dedicated to its own message surrounding the leaks.And the official in charge of its elite hacker unit — which it denied even existed before Snowden — gave a public talk in February.Tech Insider was recently in Washington to cover a DARPA event at the Pentagon, so we decided to make a slight detour out to the National Cryptologic Museum, a public facility that's just a stone's throw away from NSA headquarters at Fort Meade, Md.Here's what's inside.View As: One PageSlides
Reuters – Federal agents acted in good faith in executing a warrant to search a Connecticut accountant s records that had been seized 2-1/2 years earlier, a U.S. appeals court said, in a closely watched case testing how long the government can keep a criminal suspect s computer data.But the 2nd U.S.Circuit Court of Appeals in New York on Friday avoided the question of whether keeping the records that long violated Stavros Ganias constitutional rights under the Fourth Amendment.The 12-1 decision, one of the rare cases heard by the entire court, restored Ganias 2011 jury conviction and two-year prison term for tax evasion.A three-judge panel had overturned both in June 2014.At issue were computer files seized in November 2003 by U.S. Army investigators examining possible overbilling by a military contractor that employed Ganias as an accountant.But rather than purge unneeded files, the government held onto them, and in April 2006 got a warrant to search them for evidence of unrelated tax evasion by Ganias.In the 2014 ruling that voided the jury verdict, Circuit Judge Denny Chin, the dissenter in Friday s decision, said the government went too far by searching computer records it had long considered irrelevant for evidence of a new crime.Writing for the full appeals court in an unusual, 60-page joint opinion, Circuit Judges Debra Ann Livingston and Gerard Lynch did not resolve that issue.But they cautioned law enforcement to be more careful, citing significant privacy concerns and Fourth Amendment issues arising when the government retains hard drives and other digital media containing vast troves of personal information, much of which may be entirely irrelevant to the criminal investigation that led to the seizure.The government did precisely what the Fourth Amendment forbids: it entered Ganias premises with a warrant to seize certain papers and indiscriminately seized – and retained – all papers instead, he wrote.Stanley Twardy, Ganias lawyer, said he was reviewing the decision and might appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.U.S.Attorney Deirdre Daly in Connecticut said: The court s thoughtful opinion provides a nuanced and balanced analysis of the complexities surrounding searches of digital media.Several criminal defense advocacy groups supported Ganias appeal.Google parent Alphabet Inc also supported Ganias, and said additional privacy safeguards may be needed when law enforcement asks service providers such as Google to help search users content.The case is U.S. v. Ganias, 2nd U.S.
Edward Snowden fled the US after leaking classified details in 2013By Sky News US TeamEdward Snowden performed a "public service" by triggering a national debate about secret domestic surveillance programmes, a former US Attorney General said.In a podcast released on Monday, Eric Holder said the former National Security Agency contractor should still return to the US to face trial.Snowden leaked classified details in 2013 of the US government's surveillance of its citizens before fleeing the country.He now lives in Russia and faces charges that could mean up to 30 years in prison if he returns to the US.He said: "We can certainly argue about the way in which Snowden did what he did, but I think that he actually performed a public service by raising the debate we engaged in and by the changes that we made."But in deciding what an appropriate sentence should be, a judge could take into account the usefulness of having that national debate."

Those with nothing to hide have nothing to fear.""It comes down to this: Journalists writing legitimate news stories in the public interest now have police trawling through their private metadata all because a government agency is embarrassed about a leak," he wrote."So you can think about what you believe in, you can think about what you care about, you can associate with whoever you want, you can go to whichever church you want, you can read any book you want at the library," he said.

During an appearance at Code Conference 2016 today, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg said that Peter Thiel acted independently from Facebook during his financing of lawsuits against Gawker Media, Gizmodo s parent company.Those people make good board members because they have strong views that they re not afraid to show them.After Gizmodo reported on the inner workings of Facebook s trending news team, in which a former contractor alleged that conservative stories were suppressed, Zuckerberg himself defended the platform s purpose as one that encourages conversation and the free flow of ideas:Facebook stands for giving everyone a voice.We are one global community where anyone can share anything — from a loving photo of a mother and her baby to intellectual analysis of political events.Zuckerberg wrote that he found the comments deeply upsetting, and they do not represent the way Facebook or I think at all.Disclosure: Facebook has launched a program that pays publishers, including the New York Times and Buzzfeed, to produce videos for its Facebook Live tool.
