The rise of AI-powered surveillance is extremely worrying. The ability of governments to track and identify citizens en masse could spell an end to public anonymity. But as researchers have shown time and time again, there are ways to trick such systems.

The latest example comes from a group of engineers from the university of KU Leuven in Belgium. In a paper shared last week on the preprint server arXiv, these students show how simple printed patterns can fool an AI system that’s designed to recognize people in images

A "Geo-fence" warrant can allow "the very kind of search the Fourth Amendment was intended to prevent."

Having a device that generates location data should not be probable cause. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/04/googles-sensorvault-can-tell-police-where-youve-been #surveillance

We need to choose either #security or #surveillance.
Fuck surveillance.

Quoting a recent post from Bruce Schneier:
Either everyone gets to spy, or no one gets to spy. And I believe we must choose security over surveillance, and implement a defense-dominant strategy.

https://armin.dev/blog/2019/04/adblock-plus-code-injection/
Users may also switch to uBlock Origin. It does not support the $rewrite filter option and it is not vulnerable to the described attack.

A new version of Adblock Plus was released on July 17, 2018. Version 3.2 introduced a new filter option for rewriting requests. A day later AdBlock followed suit and released support for the new filter option. uBlock, being owned by AdBlock, also implemented the feature.

Under certain conditions the $rewrite filter option enables filter list maintainers to inject arbitrary code in web pages.

The affected extensions have more than 100 million active users, and the feature is trivial to exploit in order to attack any sufficiently complex web serv

Email Self-Defense.... GNU/Linux....Mac OS.....Windows.... Bulk surveillance violates our fundamental rights and makes free speech risky. This guide will teach you a basic surveillance self-defense skill: email encryption. Once you've finished, you'll be able to send and receive emails that are scrambled to make sure a surveillance agent or thief intercepting your email can't read them. All you need is a computer with an Internet connection, an email account, and about forty minutes.
Even if you have nothing to hide, using encryption helps protect the privacy of people you communicate with, and makes life difficult for bulk surveillance systems. If you do have something important to hide, you're in good company; these are the same tools that whistleblowers use to protect their identities while shining light on human rights abuses, corruption and other crimes.
