This Is How Amazon's Alexa Records And Shares Private Conversations Without Your Permission | Zero Hedge


https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2018-05-25/how-amazons-alexa-records-and-shares-private-conversations-without-your-permission

As it turns out, the scandal over Amazon's Alexa voice-controlled personal assistant recording and sharing private conversations both with hackers and with people on the users' contact list is much more serious than the company had feared.

As Bloomberg reported, Amazon responded to a KIRO 7 news report about a couple who received a call from a friend saying "unplug your Alexa devices right now. You’re being hacked" after the company's device had shared a private conversation without explicit permission.

Government trolls use psychology-based influence techniques in social media

"Have you ever come across someone on the Internet that you suspected was a paid government troll? Well, there is a very good chance that you were not imagining things."
...

"You’ve probably run into them before—those seemingly random antagonizers who always end up diverting the conversation in an online chat room or article comment section away from the issue at hand, and towards a much different agenda. Hot-button issues like illegal immigration, the two-party political system, the “war on terror” and even alternative medicine are among the most common targets of such attackers, known as internet “trolls” or “shills,” who in many cases are nothing more than paid lackeys hired by the federal government and other international organizations to sway and ultimately control public opinion."
...

"In the U.K., the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG) is a specialized unit within the Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ). If it wasn’t for Edward Snowden, we probably still would never have heard of them. This particular specialized unit is engaged in some very “questionable” online activities."
...

Controversial GCHQ Unit Engaged in Domestic Law Enforcement, Online Propaganda, Psychology Research

"The spy unit responsible for some of the United Kingdom’s most controversial tactics of surveillance, online propaganda and deceit focuses extensively on traditional law enforcement and domestic activities — even though officials typically justify its activities by emphasizing foreign intelligence and counterterrorism operations."

Good post, Zod.

These infiltrator groups are far more pervasive than many would imagine they are.

Indeed. Corporate media talks almost constantly about "Russian media war", Kremlin trolls", "Russian bots". US/NATO wide spread mass electronic surveillance and programs to influence public opinion, or spread pure propaganda, go under their radar almost completely.

I had quite large thread regarding the topic on the other site. Luckily I have links stored so I will shere them here. It gonna be mix of the older articles, as those above, and actual events.

Contribution and comments from others are welcomed as usually.

Air Force research: How to use social media to control people like drones

"Containment control" model looks at how groups of influencers can manipulate people.

Facebook isn’t the only organization conducting research into how attitudes are affected by social media. The Department of Defense has invested millions of dollars over the past few years investigating social media, social networks, and how information spreads across them. While Facebook and Cornell University researchers manipulated what individuals saw in their social media streams, military-funded research—including projects funded by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Social Media in Strategic Communications (SMISC) program—has looked primarily into how messages from influential members of social networks propagate.

...

Soft Info-warfare

DARPA launched its SMISC program in 2011 to examine ways social networks could be used for propaganda and what broadly falls under the euphemistic title of Military Information Support Operations (MISO), formerly known as psychological operations. Early in July, DARPA published a list of research projects funded by the SMISC program. They included studies that analyzed the Twitter followings of Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber among others; investigations into the spread of Internet memes; a study by the Georgia Tech Research Institute into automatically identifying deceptive content in social media with linguistic cues; and "Modeling User Attitude toward Controversial Topics in Online Social Media”—an IBM Research study that tapped into Twitter feeds to track responses to topics like “fracking” for natural gas.

...

The social drone graph

That language was Graph theory—the mathematical language that is the basis of Facebook’s Graph database and the “entity” databases at the heart of Google and Bing’s understanding of context around searches. It’s also become a fundamental part of control systems for directing swarms of autonomous robots. The connection inspired Dixon to want to investigate the connection further, he said. “Can you apply the same math to controlling autonomous people to groups of people?”

...

Remote control

While DARPA’s research funding comes with specific ethical and legal constraints, it’s clear that there is other research being conducted in social media manipulation not happening with such oversight. As Ars reported earlier this week, documents provided to The Intercept’s Glenn Greenwald by former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden show that the British intelligence agency GCHQ has developed tools specifically aimed at leveraging social media for “effects” operations. The organization has shared its methods with the NSA, and these capabilities have been used in Afghanistan and elsewhere to “shape” information available to members of targeted organizations online and via mobile phones.

...

NOTE: Just think about it. Can be usch tools used to trigger certain individuals to commit, for example, mass shooting incidents or terrorist attacks in favor of the official rhetoric? I think they can. It's quite alarming...

Not sure if this is the right spot to post this but it needs to be aired...

Tommy Robinson an activist from the UK who speaks out primarily towards Islam and the establishment has been imprisoned for 13 months...

The real clicker here is the fact he was arrested, charged and sentenced within 2 hours, this is an extreme abuse of the justice system within the UK and a symbolic attack to deter anyone who speaks out against the globalist agenda within the UK...

There is also (AFAIK) a press gag on this within the UK, he was outside a court building to show a presence and ask respectfully how do Peadophiles who were part of an Islamic group responsible for the gang rape and grooming of children as young as 11.


Petition for his release
