Some Flame code found in Stuxnet virus-experts

Two leading computer security firms have linked some of the software code in the powerful Flame virus to the Stuxnet cyber weapon, which was widely believed to have been used by the United States and Israel to attack Iran's nuclear program.

Eugene Kaspersky, chief executive of Moscow-based Kaspersky Lab, which uncovered Flame last month, said at the Reuters Global Media and Technology Summit on Monday his researchers have since found that part of the Flame program code is nearly identical to code found in a 2009 version of Stuxnet.

British Prime Minister Forgets His 8-Year-Old Daughter And Leaves Her In Pub

A mix-up after a family lunch meant eight-year-old Nancy was left alone at the Plough Inn in Cadsden 'for about 15 minutes'

David Cameron left his eight-year-old daughter in the pub following a Sunday lunch, after a mix-up with his wife Samantha, Downing Street has admitted.

The couple's daughter Nancy wandered off to the toilets while they were arranging lifts and they only realised she was not with them when they got home, the Sun said.

The prime minister rushed back to the Plough Inn in Cadsden, Buckinghamshire, where he found his daughter with staff.

Lauryn Hill Versus The Military-Industrial Complex

For the past several years, I have remained what others would consider underground. I did this in order to build a community of people, like-minded in their desire for freedom and the right to pursue their goals and lives without being manipulated and controlled by a media protected military industrial complex with a completely different agenda. Having put the lives and needs of other people before my own for multiple years, and having made hundreds of millions of dollars for certain institutions, under complex and sometimes severe circumstances, I began to require growth and more equitable treatment, but was met with resistance. I entered into my craft full of optimism (which I still possess), but immediately saw the suppressive force with which the system attempts to maintain it’s control over a given paradigm. I’ve seen people promote addiction, use sabotage, black listing, media bullying and any other coercion technique they could, to prevent artists from knowing their true value, or exercising their full power. These devices of control, no matter how well intentioned (or not), can have a devastating outcome on the lives of people, especially creative types who must grow and exist within a certain environment and according to a certain pace, in order to live and create optimally…

European ISPs Lobby ITU Against Net Neutrality

Service providers say they should have the right to charge for better service

European ISPs have asked the ITU to guarantee service providers’ right to charge more for guaranteed service levels, against the wishes of those lobbying for Net Neutrality.

Governments including that of the Netherlands have passed laws banning the creation of a so-called “two-tier Internet”, in order to prevent service providers choking rival services. However, the European Telecommunications Network Operators Association (ETNO) has argued that the ability to charge for differentiated service is essential and urged the UN’s telecoms body to enshrine the principle in new international regulations.

Intelligente Messsysteme: Verbraucherprofile werden weit mehr als den Energieverbrauch erfassen, wenn nicht angemessene Schutzmaßnahmen ergriffen werden

Am 8. Juni 2012 hat der Europäische Datenschutzbeauftragte (EDSB) seine Stellungnahme zur Empfehlung der Kommission zu Vorbereitungen für die Einführung intelligenter Messsysteme abgegeben; diese Empfehlung gibt den Mitgliedsstaaten Hilfestellung dabei, die Einführung dieser Systeme vorzubereiten.

Die Einführung intelligenter Messsysteme in ganz Europa mag zwar signifikanten Nutzen bringen, wird aber auch die massive Sammlung personenbezogener Daten ermöglichen, mit denen verfolgt werden kann, was die Mitglieder eines Haushalts in ihren eigenen vier Wänden tun, ob sie im Urlaub oder auf der Arbeit sind, ob sie spezielle medizinische Geräte oder ein Babyphon benutzen, wie sie ihre Freizeit verbringen, und so weiter. Diese Muster können nützlich sein, um unseren Energieverbrauch für Energiesparzwecke zu analysieren. Zusammen mit Daten aus anderen Quellen ist das Potenzial für Data-Mining sehr bedeutsam. Muster und Profile können für viele Zwecke genutzt werden, Marketing, Werbung und Preisdiskriminierung durch Dritte eingeschlossen.

Euro zone discussed capital controls if Greek exits euro: sources

European finance officials have discussed limiting the size of withdrawals from ATM machines, imposing border checks and introducing euro zone capital controls as a worst-case scenario should Athens decide to leave the euro.

EU officials have told Reuters the ideas are part of a range of contingency plans. They emphasized that the discussions were merely about being prepared for any eventuality rather than planning for something they expect to happen - no one Reuters has spoken to expects Greece to leave the single currency area.
