HerbieTMac writes "Political science professor Francis Fukuyama builds and flies his own personal surveillance drones. His current model requires ground visibility but he is working on the HAM license that would allow fully remote operation. His YouTube videos (Link 1 , Link 2) are particularly impressive."

+ - Cryptome Hit by Blackhole Exploit Kit ->

Submitted by wiredmikey
wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Whistleblower site Cryptome has been hacked and infected by the Blackhole exploit kit. Just how the breach occurred has not been said. Cryptome co-founder John Young however told SecurityWeek that the site is in the process of cleaning everything up, and that process should be finished by the end of the day. Founded in 1996, Cryptome publishes thousands of documents, including many related to national security, law enforcement and military. On Feb. 12, a reader advised the site that accessing a file had triggered a warning in their antivirus about the Blackhole exploit kit. Cryptome examined the file and found this command at its end: . Subsequent analysis found thousands of files on the site had been infected. That a reader notified the site of the problem is in keeping with a recent finding from Trustwave, which reported that of the data breaches they investigated in 2011, only 16 percent of the victimized organizations were able to detect the breach themselves."

+ - How to Pull Location Data From Encrypted Google Maps Sessions->

Submitted by Trailrunner7
Trailrunner7 (1100399) writes "In the last couple of years, Google and some other Web giants have moved to make many of their services accessible over SSL, and in many cases, made HTTPS connections the default. That's designed to make eavesdropping on those connections more difficult, but as researchers have shown, it certainly doesn't make traffic analysis of those connections impossible.

Vincent Berg of IOActive has written a tool that can monitor SSL connections and make some highly educated guesses about the contents of the requests going to Google Maps, specifically looking at what size the PNG files returned by Google Maps are. The tool then attempts to group those images in a specific location, based on the grid and tile system that Google uses to construct its maps."
