Another of Hall’s fraud cases involved the Russian chief executive and major shareholder of a collapsed Russian bank. His lawyer argued that the case should not be brought in the UK, as it was not his primary residence. “Part of the evidence we used was social media, chronologically showing data posts of the family members and the principal himself … living and operating here, so [proving] the UK is the correct jurisdiction,” said Hall. Investigators often use location search tools such as Geofeedia, which enable them to throw a virtual “geo-fence” around a certain building or area and gather all of the social media posted from there in real time. … [Read more...] about Yachts, jets and stacks of cash: super-rich discover risks of Instagram snaps
'It was just like you to write so promptly regard to my complaint about the tapping of my telephone. The DIB [Mullick] saw me in this connection today. The subsequent information that I got is that the tapping was done at the instance of the military authorities and the persons doing the tapping were withdrawn at 8 o'clock on the night of the 31st October, presumably because of the change in the direction of the Defence Ministry -- though it is asserted that no real change has taken place.' … [Read more...] about When a US president wanted Indian minister sacked!
PGP was originally designed for user control, allowing an individual to have encryption strong enough to defy any government or criminal. But the mechanics of using PGP never got easier. Generating keys was generally a breeze, but distributing one’s own public key and collecting those of others, a pain—and too hard for nearly all individuals and most companies. And PGP (and its free-software implementation, GPG) is symmetrical: a recipient must always have software installed to interact with PGP-protected messages.With all that friction, secure messaging apps like iMessage, Signal, and others filled a need.

They hide 100% of the overhead of encryption. … [Read more...] about This upstart service takes the pain out of seriously private email
The interview makes for uncomfortable reading. In between "sobbing uncontrollably", Goody tells how she has been moving from hotel to hotel since leaving the Big Brother house two weeks ago. She has a security guard with her 24/7 who doesn't let her answer the phone or even order her own food. "I have to ask for everything," she says. She cannot return home because one of her windows was smashed and she has received death threats by phone and letter. She's currently separated from her two children because, she says, "it's not fair to make them stay in a cramped [hotel] room ... I need to find somewhere more permanent so I can get their toys." Goody also reveals that her grandparents have been receiving malicious phone calls and that her mother has gone into hiding. Asked if she feels suicidal, she says: "I thought maybe I should just disappear. That it would be better for everyone if I just wasn't here. [Starts sobbing uncontrollably.]" … [Read more...] about A modern-day witch-hunt
