Snowden appeared via satellite link in the Australian city of Melbourne last night, live from Russia where he resides under temporary asylum after leaking classified documents that revealed the extent of the modern global western government intelligence apparatus.The AFP Friday raided the office of Labor power-broker and former comms minister Stephen Conroy and the home of a staffer of shadow communications minister Jason Clare."Snowden cites the nation's "drag net" data retention and anti-whistleblower laws in which citizen metadata is retained for two years, and those who leak national security documents may be imprisoned.Former Pentagon investigator John Crane has today told The Guardian how the agency became a trap for whistleblowers, including forerunner NSA leaker Thomas Drake."If someone is saying I don't care about the right to privacy because I've got nothing to hide' that's no different to saying 'I don't care about freedom of speech because I have nothing to say'," Snowden says.Snowden also spoke of the power of metadata, suggesting it is more valuable than content because it provides the investigator with similar intelligence while often foregoing the need to acquire warrants.

The Samsung Galaxy S7 Active has got to be one of the worst kept secrets in smartphone land, with numerous official looking renders leaking out, and now what's believed to be an official spec sheet doing the rounds too.To put it into perspective the standard Samsung Galaxy S7 has just a 3000mAh battery, last year's Samsung Galaxy S6 Active has a 3500mAh one, and even the massive Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge has a smaller 3600mAh juice pack.Sounds like an S7The rest of the specs seem to be identical to the Samsung Galaxy S7, with a 5.1-inch 1440 x 2560 Super AMOLED screen, a Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 12MP rear camera, a 5MP front-facing one and Android Marshmallow all listed.Where the Samsung Galaxy S7 Active differs from its less rugged namesake is in the design, as it has a chunky 9.9mm thick, 185g build.Still, the S7 Active looks as though it's more likely to survive a fall and that's the whole point.It's believed to be an AT exclusive, so if you're outside the US you might be out of luck.

A hacker who first exposed the existence of Hillary Clinton s private email server and who found his way into accounts of several American political figures pleaded guilty to identity theft and hacking charges today.Lazar, who was brought to the U.S. from Romania in March to stand trial, had been facing additional charges of wire fraud, unauthorized access to protected computers, cyberstalking and obstruction of justice.His sentencing is set for September.While in custody, Lazar claimed that he hacked Clinton s email server, saying that it was completely unsecured.The Clinton campaign denied his claims, calling it unfathomable that Lazar would have resisted leaking Clinton s emails if he had indeed accessed them.Lazar produced no documentation to back up his claims.
The importance of the service means that any IT decisions about how it is run must be carefully thought through.CBR spoke to Ian Trenholm, CEO, NHSBT, and Anthony Evans, digital service manager, NHSBT, about the technology it is using.Before a move to Microsoft Azure almost two years ago, NHSBT had been using its own in-house service to manage all of its systems, but while they were stable, they struggled to deal with spikes in demand and were un-flexible."So if a celebrity goes on breakfast news and says, 'I'm very grateful for a blood transfusion', then people immediately try and go online and book a blood donation appointment.This month two NHS trusts were fined £365,000 for leaking information about thousands of NHS staff and hundreds of patients with HIV.NHSBT has architected its systems so that its on-premise estate manages some of the data that is very sensitive, but it has a secure high speed link between its internal database and the digital service that users see.
Suppose that a company begins to suspect that the CFO leak financial information to a competitor. As the annual number of crowns spent on information security and the number of media attention information security incidents. Since information often is so precious it must be protected against others - against individuals, companies and governments and their intelligence services. In such leaking CFOs. Is it okay for US NSA with reference to national security gathering information on all the world's Internet usage, that is, all the world's Internet users? In fact it is so thanks for reading further: it depends.
They're bulkier than I prefer my headphones to be, but this doesn't offer any of the usual benefits of size, such as more nuanced sound or increased physical comfort.A simple Pioneer logo adorns each cup, which is black and finished with a spiral texture that I weirdly couldn't stop running my fingers over.If you have the option of using the balanced headphone cable then you should do, but unfortunately you'll need a balanced headphone amplifier to do so.Finally, these headphones are closed-back, meaning sound has a tough time leaking out and disturbing those around you, and likewise they're great if you want to drown out the noise of your commute or co-workers who are arguing for the umpteenth time about whether it's possible to 'meet' a baby which, for the record, it is .It's got a nice well-defined kick to it in a musically simple track like this, and really works to drive the song's rhythm.These headphones suit a four-piece rock band like The Red Hot Chili Peppers even less.
You can spend all the time and money in the world on bringing visitors to your site, but if they re not converting, your website is basically a leaky bucket - and it s leaking money.Now, lots of people have jumped to this conclusion and subsequently jumped on the A/B testing bandwagon.But the problem with A/B testing without a framework is that it can result in analysis paralysis.Fortunately, Peep Laja will be going over the exact framework he used to improve hundreds of websites around the world.No matter what industry you re in e.g.This framework is called ResearchXL.
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."
Chicago CNN Former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder says Edward Snowden performed a public service by triggering a debate over surveillance techniques, but still must pay a penalty for illegally leaking a trove of classified intelligence documents.
After leaking the announcement on social media over a week ago, Sony has officially confirmed the brand new Xperia E5, a phone which sports a lower price tag, and lesser specs than the headline Xperia X and Xperia Z5.There's a mediocre 5-inch 720p screen on the front, camera wise the specs sound top notch with a 13MP rear sensor with auto-focus, HDR, flash and a 3 times zoom paired with a 5MP front-facing camera.It also features impressive microSD support up to 200GB, much like the flagship Sony range.It's no flagshipIt comes with the latest Android 6 Marshmallow software, but there's no word on whether Sony plans to bring Android N to it when Google releases it later this year .Our money would be on yes.You'll be able to buy the phone in either black or white, but a release date and pricing information is still not available so we'll have to wait a while longer to find out when it'll come out.Check out our best cheap phones of 2016 so far
With the Lumia brand failing to make a significant dent in the violently competitive smartphone market, Microsoft is rumoured to be banking on the goodwill and reputation of its Surface tablets to restore faith in Windows mobile devices.The 'leaked' render below was posted on Chinese website Baidu and has been accredited to notable Lumia-tipster 'Nokibar' responsible for leaking the Lumia 650 and the now-cancelled Lumia 850 .Judging the device from the image alone we can see what looks like a USB-C port and traditional 3.5mm headphone jack.The rear camera module is described in the Baidu post as a 20MP Carl Zeiss lens, similar to previous Microsoft flagships such as the recent Lumia 950.While a 'mid-range' version rocking 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage is questionable, but not impossible, the 8GB RAM and 500GB storage 'premium' version veers towards off-the-deep-end territory considering the potentially astronomical production cost and retail price that would accompany it.Regardless of the eventual specification, the Surface Phone seemingly becomes more and more likely with each passing week and it is surely only a matter of time before we see Microsoft's smartphone re-launch plans in the flesh.

Everything we work on at Google—all the data and information we create, details of what we do, how we operate, and our plans for the future—is at a minimum, confidential, the guidelines say.Such policies are widespread in the Silicon Valley tech sector, said lawyer Chris Baker, who is representing the former Nest worker, whom he wouldn t identify.Tech companies are more likely to be over-inclusive in what they consider to be confidential.A statement posted to the website of Baker s practice, Baker & Schwartz, refers to the reported effort to restrict Nest workers from speaking out as a witch hunt.A March 2015 internal labor board memo from board lawyer Richard Griffin appears to support the complaint against Google and Nest.Employees right to criticize an employer s labor policies and treatment of employees includes the right to do so in a public forum, Griffin wrote.According to news website The Information, which revealed Thursday the labor board complaint filed May 18, Google security manager and former State Department special agent Brian Katz told Nest employees at a recent meeting that they should report to the company colleagues they suspected of leaking information to the media.Photo: Nest founder and CEO Tony Fadell  Nhat V.

Kyle McDonaldIf you re connected to a wireless network, odds are high that little bits of data are trickling out of your device like water from a leaky faucet.Recently at Moogfest, a music and technology festival in Durham, N.C., McDonald with the help of fellow artist Surya Mattu created an installation called WiFi Whisperer that called attention to all that data your phone is giving away for free.By partnering with Festify, Moogfest s wireless internet provider, the artists were able to grab even more data—things like the names of networks you were previously connected to, your device s MAC address, the host name of your laptop or phone, the server your http traffic is aiming for, and even text from whatever website you re visiting.And finally, if you really want to be safe, use a virtual private network, which will help safeguard against HTTP traffic leaking but not against hardware and network-level leaking.That perspective has shifted over the years, especially in our post-Snowden era.Now, he says artists don t need to be whistleblowers; rather, he believes they need to help people understand the immediate impact of security issues.
