Getting the Message? Police Track Phones with Silent SMS In June 2011, Colette Giudicelli, a senator representing the Maritime Alps region of France, wrote to Claude Gueant, the French Interior Minister: Many foreign police and intelligence services use clandestine “Silent” SMS to locate suspects or missing persons. This method involves sending an SMS text message to the mobile phone of a suspect, an SMS that goes unnoticed and sends back a signal to the sender of the message. Colette Giudicelli would like to know whether this procedure has been used in France. Seven months later, and there has still been no response from the French government. Also known as Flash-SMS, the Silent SMS uses an invisible return signal, or “ping”. The Silent SMS allows the user to send a message to another mobile without the knowledge of the recipient mobile’s owner. Silent SMS were originally intended to allow operators to ascertain whether a mobile phone is switched on and to “test” the network, without alerting the users. Smile, you’re being tracked

La Quadrature du Net | Internet & Libertés Awesome Bar - Find your bookmarks, history and tabs when you type in the address bar The location bar, also called the URL bar or address bar, displays a site's web address (URL). We call it the Awesome Bar because it remembers those websites you've visited before, guesses where you're trying to go and displays a list of suggested sites you can choose from. The more you use it, the better it gets. The location bar can also be used for other types of searches. Just start typing in the location bar and the autocomplete drop-down will show matching sites from your browsing history, as well as sites you've bookmarked or tagged. The part of the entry that matches what you've typed will show in bold. Web addresses from pages in history that match what you have typed Page titles from history that match what you have typed Bookmark titles that match what you have typed Bookmarks with tag names that match what you've typed The location bar also learns from your browsing behavior. URL autocomplete Firefox will also complete URLs of websites that you've been to before.
Mobile Surveillance - A Primer Share This Mobiles can be useful tools for collecting, planning, coordinating and recording activities of NGO staff and activists. But did you know that whenever your phone is on, your location is known to the network operator? Or that each phone and SIM card transmits a unique identifying code, which, unless you are very careful about how you acquire the phone and SIM, can be traced uniquely to you? With cameras, GPS, mobile Internet come ever more dangerous surveillance possibilities, allowing an observer, once they have succeeded in gaining control of the phone, to turn it into a sophisticated recording device. This is understandably disquieting to activists involved in sensitive work. Obviously, the most secure way to use a phone is not to use one at all. For every phone currently on the network (receiving a signal, regardless of whether the phone has been used to call or send messages) the network operator has the following information: SMS you have sent or received Data Sheet Author:
ACTA pour les nuls ACTA pour les nuls Après nous l'avoir bien mis profond avec Hadopi, (et Loppsi), ACTA continue son petit bonhomme de chemin... Le dossier ACTA est assez complexe et j'avoue ne pas encore tout maitriser sur le sujet. Mais Hadrien, fidèle lecteur de Korben.info vient de m'envoyer une vidéo que j'avais laissé passer il y a quelques jours... Un bon moyen de s'informer simplement sur ACTA, pour en comprendre les implications sans forcement se plonger dans toute la doc. L'avenir nous dira ce que ça va donner mais à mon avis, contraire à la Hadopi qui est juste une vaste blague, ACTA c'est du terrorisme international gouvernemental en puissance. Affaire à suivre.

Chilling Effects Clearinghouse The diaspora* Project This Internet provider pledges to put your privacy first. Always. | Privacy Inc. Nicholas Merrill is planning to revolutionize online privacy with a concept as simple as it is ingenious: a telecommunications provider designed from its inception to shield its customers from surveillance. Merrill, 39, who previously ran a New York-based Internet provider, told CNET that he's raising funds to launch a national "non-profit telecommunications provider dedicated to privacy, using ubiquitous encryption" that will sell mobile phone service and, for as little as $20 a month, Internet connectivity. The ISP would not merely employ every technological means at its disposal, including encryption and limited logging, to protect its customers. It would also -- and in practice this is likely more important -- challenge government surveillance demands of dubious legality or constitutionality. A decade of revelations has underlined the intimate relationship between many telecommunications companies and Washington officialdom. Like the eavesdropping system that President George W.

Cell Phone Location Tracking Public Records Request Of all of the recent technological developments that have expanded the surveillance capabilities of law enforcement agencies at the expense of individual privacy, perhaps the most powerful is cell phone location tracking. And now, after an unprecedented records request by ACLU affiliates around the country, we know that this method is widespread and often used without adequate regard for constitutional protections, judicial oversight, or accountability. All cell phones register their location with cell phone networks several times a minute, and this function cannot be turned off while the phone is getting a wireless signal. The threat to personal privacy presented by this technology is breathtaking. To know a person's location over time is to know a great deal about who a person is and what he or she values. The government should have to obtain a warrant based upon probable cause before tracking cell phones. In United States v. What we have learned is disturbing.
