+ - SPAM: Engineers design plug and play network anonymization device 1

Submitted by Max DollarCash
Max DollarCash (2874161) writes ""An engineer from the University of Malaga has created a plug & play network device called the Adnonify that will filter advertising, trackers and hide your physical location. In light of the events of the past weeks concerning the NSA and GCHQ wiretaps this seems to be a great idea! They are building a Peer to Peer decentralized VPN network which will allow the average user to secure his connection. They claim the system will use standard HTTPS port and will be unblockable by ISP's. There is an indiegogo campaign that is launched. What do you think slashdot? Need your input!"

+ - FTC demands search engines separate paid advertisements from search results->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "According to both the FTC staff’s original search engine guidance and the updated guidance, failing to clearly and prominently distinguish advertising from natural search results could be a deceptive practice. The updated guidance emphasizes the need for visual cues, labels, or other techniques to effectively distinguish advertisements, in order to avoid misleading consumers, and it makes recommendations for ensuring that disclosures commonly used to identify advertising are noticeable and understandable to consumers.

The letters note that the principles of the original guidance still apply, even as search and the business of search continue to evolve. The letters observe that social media, mobile apps, voice assistants on mobile devices, and specialized search results that are integrated into general search results offer consumers new ways of getting information. The guidance advises that regardless of the precise form that search takes now or in the future, paid search results and other forms of advertising should be clearly distinguishable from natural search results."

Better late than never. Microsoft exploits have been traded and sold to security companies owned by intelligence agencies for years now. At least now the researchers discovering the bugs have an incentive to sell to microsoft and get the bug fixed instead of selling it to the highest bidder who will probably use it to create either "private"-malware or government-malware. Thank you m$

How long before the NSA decides me, you or anyone else for that matter must be killed. Just upload the payload in memory, make it crash. You die. Problem solved for the NSA and no trace evidence. It's more than enough to hand your telecoms to the government, but my life? Hell no. Ill be right here waiting on slashdot to read of the first "self-driving-car-crash-assasination" Im not getting in that sh*t. Heck i'll be hacking the fluck out of it.
