Published in collaboration with WikiLeaks: What Cablegate tells us about US foreign policy
When WikiLeaks first came to prominence in 2010 by releasing 2,325,961 top-secret State Department cables, the world saw for the first time what the US really thought about national leaders, friendly dictators and supposed allies. It also discovered the dark truths of national policies, human rights violations, covert operations and cover-ups. Continue reading “The WikiLeaks Files: The World According to US Empire”
Internet filtering, censorship of Web content, and online surveillance are increasing in scale, scope, and sophistication around the world, in democratic countries as well as in authoritarian states. The first generation of Internet controls consisted largely of building firewalls at key Internet gateways; China's famous Great Firewall of China is one of the first national Internet filtering systems. Today the new tools for Internet controls that are emerging go beyond mere denial of information. These new techniques, which aim to normalize (or even legalize) Internet control, include targeted viruses and the strategically timed deployment of distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, surveillance at key points of the Internet's infrastructure, take-down notices, stringent terms of usage policies, and national information shaping strategies. Access Controlled reports on this new normative terrain.
The book, a project from the OpenNet Initiative (ONI), a collaboration of the Citizen Lab at the University of Toronto's Munk Centre for International Studies, Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and the SecDev Group, offers six substantial chapters that analyze Internet control in both Western and Eastern Europe and a section of shorter regional reports and country profiles drawn from material gathered by the ONI around the world through a combination of technical interrogation and field research methods.
Corporate Cyberwar chronicles the daily battle between technical criminals and law enforcement. As new and advanced ways to cheat and financially ruin companies are discovered, many authorities not only have to figure out ways to stop it, but they also have to create new laws in order to prosecute the perpetrators. This book addresses how businesses/corporations can protect themselves against this increasingly vicious attack. To help convey the importance of protection and awareness, Cyberwar explores two very important cases, WikiLeaks and Stuxnet. Businesses/corporations are given a better understanding of such similar attacks in the future. Corporate Cyberwar does not only focus on problems, it also provides solutions. There is a point by point explanation of how Crimeware, Bot Networks and DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) take place, which helps businesses/corporations understand exactly what needs to be done in order to prevent the attacks. Cyberwar is not only for those with a moderate understanding of technology, it is also for those with limited understanding of this threat and its devastating effects.
Anonymous got lucky. When five of its hackers attacked security company HBGary Federal on February 6, 2011, they were doing so in order to defend the group’s privacy. It wasn’t because they hoped to reveal plans to attack WikiLeaks, create surveillance cells targeting pro-union organizations, and sell sophisticated rootkits to the US government for use as offensive cyber weapons—but that’s what they found.
In the weeks after the attack, the hackers released tens of thousands of e-mail messages and made headlines around the world. Aaron Bar, the CEO of HBGary Federal, eventually resigned; 12 Congressman called for an investigation; an ethics complaint was lodged against a major DC law firm involved with some of the more dubious plans.
