Edward Snowden Was Suspected Years Ago
It turned out that Edward Snowden’s former boss warned his CIA bosses four years ago that he thought the techie was a security risk.
Drug Trafficking Website Was Hacked to Arrest Operators
Silk Road website currently displays seizure notice. Theoretically, it is impossible to find a website hosted on the Tor system. This is why there are questions over how the police managed to take it down in the early October.
Web Freedom Doomed
A recent report, carried out by the advocacy group Freedom House, has taken a look at Internet trends in 60 countries. The results were that despite a pushback from activists which successfully blocked some repressive laws, web freedom still plummeted in 2012.
Internet Connections to Sudan Cut off
All online connections to Sudan were abruptly cut off after riots erupted over the ending of fuel subsidies. The government seems to make the move in order to prevent protesters from using social media to organize riots. Although the real reasons are unclear, the Internet monitoring firms point out that it was either a coincidental catastrophic failure of all three independent ISPs and their connections out of Sudan (as well as a terrestrial link into Egypt) or some centrally directed, government action.

In most cases of a failure of this kind which is not governmentally directed (for example, a power failure or a cut cable), ISPs switch to their satellite backups. However, this time it didn’t happen. It was a total shutdown, as happened earlier in Egypt.

Cutting off Internet is normally used by some governments in Middle Eastern countries in order to regain control amid heated protests. As you now, the now-defunct Mubarak regime in Egypt and the Assad regime in Syria have severed online links in attempt to restrict protests. Indeed, cutting international links makes it difficult to upload videos of protests to YouTube, among other things.

The industry observers confirmed that Sudan’s Internet connectivity abruptly dropped to zero. According to media reports, it broke out after the local government removed fuel subsidies, with a number of petrol stations and a university building set on fire. In the meantime, security forces fired teargas to disperse protesters who have demonstrated and set fire to a police station in Khartoum.

Since the protests have gone on for a few days after the country’s Council of Ministers decided to stop the subsidies, the price of fuel immediately doubled. The industry experts point out that the cut in subsidies followed the split of South Sudan to form an independent state two years ago. The latter took more of the main oil-producing territory which had previously been part of Sudan. In addition, the International Monetary Fund has previously told Sudan to cut the subsidies, as they consumed over 3/4 of the government’s total tax revenues. As a result, the people have no access to Internet and are in isolation from the world.
China Will Allow Access to Banned Websites in Shanghai
The local government will allow Facebook, Twitter and other banned services in a planned free-trade zone in Shanghai. Media reports say that the authorities are going to allow bids from foreign telecoms companies for licenses to provide the broadband in the zone.
Google Won’t Filter “BitTorrent” in Autocomplete Anymore
Under the pressure of content industry, the search giant had to implement a few changes to its engine. This included blacklisting piracy-related terms from appearing in its Autocomplete and Instant services. From the very beginning, Google blacklisted both “BitTorrent” and “uTorrent”, but recently unbanned these keywords, which caused a sharp increase in search traffic.

Internet users searching for such terms as “The Pirate Bay” or “MegaUpload” will find no suggestions or search results appearing before they type in the full word. It doesn’t mean that the webpages are removed from the engine’s index, but this move still caused a sharp decrease in searches for these terms.

However, it is unclear what triggers a keyword to be included in the blacklist. Google explained they remove terms “closely associated with piracy” without revealing further details. The company never published the full list of banned words, but “BitTorrent” and “uTorrent” were there from the start. Both terms are trademarks of BitTorrent Inc., which was rather disappointed that the search giant labeled them as “piracy related”.

BitTorrent Inc. has always been emphasizing that BitTorrent doesn’t equal piracy. It seems that this effort has finally paid off – both terms are now absent from Google’s piracy filter, and as a result searches for both terms rocketed, resulting in an increase in visitors to the respective websites.

This is the first time that the search engine has removed terms from its search filter. The most interesting fact is that MegaUpload still remains blocked, although it doesn’t exist for almost two years.

Unfortunately, Google doesn’t announce or comment the reasons to include certain terms in the list. For example, the company has recently added the name of the popular music streaming service Grooveshark to the list. The latter has had its fair share of legal troubles, but is now licensed by the major labels.

Internet users worry about over-blocking, but the rights owners have been arguing the opposite. A few days ago the Motion Picture Association of America released a report calling Google and other search engines major piracy facilitators and saying that they should step up their anti-piracy efforts. Apparently, now Google will have to find a balance between these two forces.

Google Deleted 100 Million Search Results in 2013

This figure is already double the number Google processed for the whole last year. Google is currently processing an average of 15 million “pirate” links per month. Although this number is leveling off, the rights owners aren’t satisfied yet.
