European blogs and British courts

21/06/2007 Written by Alberto Redi (halfmoon)

 Today, June 21st 2007, a strict reg­u­la­tion inte­grat­ing Europe’s ecom­merce laws with British Ter­ror­ism Act has come into law . Accord­ing to this reg­u­la­tion, the Elec­tronic Com­merce Direc­tive, in some cases a for­eign com­pany can be brought to jus­tice in the UK over blog post­ings that encour­age terrorism.

In the Ter­ror­ism Act, already intro­duced in 2006, it is pointed out that spe­cific police con­sta­bles can ask a blog’s oper­a­tor to remove those posts, remarks, com­ments which are con­sid­ered as poten­tially incit­ing to com­mit­ting ter­ror­ist acts.

The Great Data Exodus

21/06/2007 Written by Nick Lowe

 The lat­est tech­nolo­gies and gad­gets make it incred­i­bly easy for your data to be stolen from right under your nose, unless you take steps to pro­tect it.

Much of our per­sonal and pro­fes­sional lives nowa­days are heav­ily influ­enced by tech­nol­ogy. Everything’s going dig­i­tal, from the cas­sette player to the pic­ture frame. And whether a tech­nol­ogy is designed to help us com­mu­ni­cate, to take pic­tures, or to lis­ten to music or watch a movie, every gad­get that we carry has the abil­ity to store large amounts of data in dig­i­tal form.

The abil­ity to move mas­sive amounts of infor­ma­tion between tra­di­tional PCs and portable stor­age devices means that it’s now incred­i­bly easy for con­fi­den­tial data to be taken from com­pa­nies with­out knowl­edge or consent.

Hacking Incident goes on Czech TV

18/06/2007 Written by Boris Mutina (minor)

 Watch­ing TV on Sun­day morn­ing , while still in bed, could be very relax­ing. For exam­ple, if you are in Czech Repub­lic you can watch a TV trans­mis­sion on idyl­lic land­scapes accom­pa­nied by soft, clas­si­cal music: a sort of mind-​yoga. But what could you think about if, instead of lawns, fields or moun­tains, you see on the screen the typ­i­cal mush­room shape pro­duced by a nuke explosion?Such view could be seen last Sun­day morn­ing, dur­ing live Panorama show on Czech TV, Chan­nel CT2 (watch it here ).
Nuclear war? No, just a hack­ing attack: as it was said later in Czech TV-​journals, those pic­tures were fake, and the trans­mis­sion had been hacked.

The whole action was pre­pared by the art group Zto­hoven, whose web­site went soon offline because of the mas­sive num­ber of visitors.
