How to Create a Fake Identity and Stay Anonymous Online

Internet anonymity for Windows power users | The Register High performance access to file storage Our previous article, "Do-it-yourself Internet anonymity" was targeted towards average Windows users. It generated a startling number of e-mail requests for some advanced tactics, which I'm happy to supply. However, power user or not, I'd recommend at least skimming the earlier article if you haven't read it, just to ensure that you're not forgetting something obvious and useful. I'm not going to re-cap much of it here. Anonymous browsing We've already discussed finding and using proxies and choosing more secure browser settings, but for those who wish to take control for themselves, it's easy to install James Marshall's free CGI Proxy if you have access to a server. CGI Proxy supports SSL, and can be configured to filter images, ads, cookies and scripts. It's a good choice for people in neurotic countries like Saudi Arabia, say, or China, where there are national firewalls. HTTP & Socks proxy advanced tips Now you have to remove the garbage.

Pussy Riot: Russia’s unwitting gift to the women of the Arab Spring What if a feminist post-punk collective's action in Moscow could influence the cause of women everywhere, starting with protesters in Arab countries? A group of burqa-clad women have ditched their veiled attire for brightly coloured dresses and balaclavas, and have made their way into the Masjid al-Haram[1]. In a gesture of defiance against the Saudi establishment and the clerical-patriarchal hierarchy, the women, in a series of gyrating sequences, burst into a chorus of nasheeds,[2] invoking the Virgin Mary to bless their feminist crusade and curse the country’s religious elite for being in cahoots with Crown Prince Abdullah. The tight grip of religious orthodoxy precludes the possibility of any Pussy Riot repetition on Arabian soil. Even murmurs of a feminist-inspired stunt staging a provocative spectacle in the holy of holies would have the mutaween[3] and religious Gestapo jackbooting through the Meccan precinct, and would probably signal the death knell for women’s rights.

Hide My Ass! To some people, maybe it doesn’t. To others, it matters a whole lot. The logging policy can be viewed symbolically: a VPN’s commitment to logging as little as possible is representative of their respect for your privacy and how seriously they approach the issue of protecting your data. For example, for a lot of people, a VPN logging exactly what time they turn the VPN on or off might not be a matter of much concern: but our unwillingness to do even that hopefully signals just how earnestly we protect the data that is generally viewed as more sensitive. But refusing to log data has a practical benefit to our users as well: it means that if our databases should ever be compromised, either illegally via a hack or legally via some sort of police subpoena, the amount of data that could be acquired would be so dismally small and meaningless that neither the hackers nor the police could do anything with it.

Hyperlink Deep Read: The Blair necessity | Opinion | Comment and Analysis For years it seems impregnable, then suddenly the citadel collapses. An ideology, a fact, a regime appears fixed, unshakeable, almost geological. Then an inch of mortar falls, and the stonework begins to slide. Something of this kind happened over the weekend. When Desmond Tutu wrote that Tony Blair should be treading the path to The Hague, he de-normalised what Blair has done. The offence is known by two names in international law: the crime of aggression and a crime against peace. That the invasion of Iraq falls into this category looks indisputable. His foreign secretary, Jack Straw, told Blair that for the war to be legal, "i) there must be an armed attack upon a state or such an attack must be imminent; ii) the use of force must be necessary and other means to reverse/avert the attack must be unavailable; iii) the acts in self-defence must be proportionate and strictly confined to the object of stopping the attack." But while the case against Blair is strong, the means are weak.

Windows hack for Web-surfing privacy | The Register High performance access to file storage Those who read our article "Internet anonymity for Windows power users" know that I've been in quest of a way to assign the IE browser cache, cookies, typed URLs and history to RAM so they're never written to disk. Of course you can set your browser to delete the cache on exit, but there will be traces on the HDD; and you can block cookies or use a cookie management program, but blocking them makes surfing inconvenient, and cookie managers also leave traces on the HDD. So the challenge for me has been to set the IE cache, cookies, URL history and typed URLs to a RAM drive so they're never written to disk. I've since come up with two rough hacks which accomplish this, one for Windows 95 and 98, and one for 2K and XP. I'm grateful to Walt Moorhouse, Steven T., Lutz Albers and Eric the Troll for their encouragement and suggestions Courage, beta testers RamSurf for Win-9xRamSurf for Win-2K/XP

Blair, Bush should be tried for Iraq: Tutu reply to post by Skinon So we should just let them get away with it? And what do you propose as justice? Locking them up in a cage? What do such things accomplish? More importantly - how will it affect what lay in store for the future? No point in the nuremburg trials i spose. Not really, no. If we constantly dont stand up, letting the government do what they want when they want then we are all going to go down the -o wait thats right. How is this standing up to "the government?" He's a former president - at least in the case of Bush. The purpose behind executing, jailing, or exiling an individual was to prevent them from causing more damage to society. If you were to kill someone and be brought to trial for it ten years after the fact, having committed no other serious offenses and living a productive lifestyle - is it justice to imprison you (remove you from your source of income), fine you into bankruptcy, etc? No. We are all doomed because of exactly this stance. None.

How to Completely Anonymize Using Anomos How to Completely Mask & Anonymize Your BitTorrent Traffic Using Anomos A couple times a year, I hear about someone I know receiving that oh-so-scary letter from their ISP telling them to stop torrenting. ISPs will go as far as throttling your bandwidth (without lowering your bill), and sometimes even reporting you to authorities. I've seen a few solutions, such as using a private proxy. BTGuard acts like a proxy and simply anonymizes your traffic when connected through them. A free alternative would be to use ItsHidden VPN service. Today's Null Byte will demonstrate how to get ready for the future. ThePirateBay, the world largest BitTorrent tracker, has plans to offer .atorrent files as an optional download. uTorrent, the largest BitTorrent client, has plans to integrate the Anomos protocol in future releases. Installation & Configuration of Anomos Client Anomos is basically the same, in principle, as the standard Bittorrent protocol. Downloads

Honestly I don't have an expertly opinion on what the implications are, should the Police be forced to uphold international law... maybe our esteemed members might elaborate on this.. Might Tony need to go hide in the Ecuadorian embassy in Pretoria? This only popped up like two hours ago, lets see where it takes us.

Bush and Blair must face Hague: Tutu The South African peace icon, writing in The Observer newspaper, accused the pair of lying about weapons of mass destruction and said the invasion left the world more destabilised and divided "than any other conflict in history". Tutu argued that different standards appeared to apply for prosecuting African leaders than western counterparts, and added that the death toll during and after the Iraq conflict was sufficient for Blair and Bush to face trial. "On these grounds alone, in a consistent world, those responsible for this suffering and loss of life should be treading the same path as some of their African and Asian peers who have been made to answer for their actions in The Hague," Tutu wrote in the weekly Sunday newspaper. "But even greater costs have been exacted beyond the killing fields, in the hardened hearts and minds of members of the human family across the world." "I did not deem it appropriate to have this discussion...

Pirate Bay co-founder arrested in Cambodia: police Gottfrid Svartholm Warg was handed a one-year prison sentence by a Swedish court in 2009 for promoting copyright infringement but failed to show up to serve his term at the start of this year. He was detained in Phnom Penh on Thursday, Cambodia’s national police spokesman said. “His arrest was made at the request of the Swedish government for a crime related to information technology,” Kirth Chantharith told AFP. “We don’t have an extradition treaty with Sweden but we’ll look into our laws and see how we can handle this case,” he said, adding that Cambodia was awaiting more information and documents from the Swedish authorities. The Swedish embassy in Phnom Penh was not immediately available for comment. Founded in 2003, The Pirate Bay, which claims to have more than 31 million users, makes it possible to skirt copyright fees and share music, film and computer game files using bit torrent technology, or peer-to-peer links offered on the site.
