Elephant ivory, plans for a military combat drone, and stolen ISIS art are just some of the things you can buy on the dark web

  • Six million hacked personal accounts were added to the dark web last week, adding to the 6.5 billion personal records already available in the internet's netherworld, stolen from websites where internet users entrust their personal information every day.
  • Ironic, given that the technology used to access the dark web was originally for keeping military communication safe, but military secrets have ended up for sale on its markets.
  • It may not be what comes straight to mind, but the dark web also enables whistle-blowers (such as Edward Snowden) to communicate with journalists, and people in repressive states to access information or organize political dissent without being traced.
  • For this reason, popular mainstream websites including ProPublica, the Pulitzer-winning investigative news outlet, and even Facebook have sister sites in the dark web domain so that people can access their content without being monitored.

Nest locks users out of accounts if their passwords have been breached

  • Nest, the smart home company owned by Google, is proactively locking people out of their accounts if it believes their passwords have been compromised.
  • The standard response to this type of breach, which Nest recently used, following reports of strangers hijacking people’s security cameras, is to email any users who are affected when a breach has occurred and merely recommend that they change their passwords.
  • Presumably, Nest knows that lots of people don’t bother, which is why it’s forcing their hands by locking them out instead.
  • If you’ve been locked out of your Nest account, you won’t be able to use the Nest app or receive any notifications from your Nest devices.
  • If you receive an email from Nest telling you you’ve been locked out of your account, try and reset your password as quickly as possible by going to your app and following the instructions provided.

Hacker who stole 620 million records strikes again, stealing 127 million more

  • A hacker who stole close to 620 million user records from 16 websites has stolen another 127 million records from 8 more websites, TechCrunch has learned.
  • The hacker, whose listing was the previously disclosed data for about $20,000 in bitcoin on a dark web marketplace, stole the data last year from several major sites — some that had already been disclosed, like over 151 million records from MyFitnessPal and 25 million records from Animoto.
  • But several other hacked sites on the marketplace listing didn’t know or hadn’t disclosed yet — such as 500px and Coffee Meets Bagel.
  • The Register, which first reported the story, said the data included names, email addresses, and scrambled passwords, and in some cases other login and account data — though no financial data was included.
  • YouNow is said to have not scrambled user passwords at all.

Upload filters made it to EU’s definitive Copyright Reform, final vote in March/April

  • EU’s controversial Copyright Reform is only couple of months from becoming official EU law after the European Parliament and the Council agreed on the final text last night.
  • The final text of Article 11 — which has been the other major bone of contention — also ended up being pretty much what opponents had feared, limiting the ability for any service to show snippets with links.
  • The final text of the Copyright Reform will now have to be approved by the Legal Affairs Committee, then voted on by member state governments in the European Council — but it’ll likely be passed there.
  • That’s why Reda and other opponents believe the best is a final vote in Parliament, where all 751 MEPs who represent EU citizens will weigh in.
