So do you think we are winning on any fronts in the wars of the internet? (I understand that this will mean different things for different people but write what you want and what is happening ).
We have Edward Snowden from the NSA/GHCQ/others hacked pretty much everything. We have the CIA Vault 7 that pretty much shows the same thing.
Vault 7 " U.S. Consulate in Frankfurt is a covert CIA hacker base". And Germany is supposed to be in the forefront of privacy? https://wikileaks.org/ciav7p1/
I remember them being in with BND after Snowden.
Copyright isn't going well, more and more is removed, more and more things are brought to trial. https://torrentfreak.com/save-the-meme-campaign-protests-eus-proposed-piracy-filters-170308/
"One of the most discussed proposals is the requirement for online services to install mandatory piracy filters"https://torrentfreak.com/google-anti-piracy-agreement-will-target-domain-hopping-share-search-data-170307/
" the search engines will "exchange detailed information" with rightsholders "on a confidential basis" in order to better understand how users are searching for content."
Net Neutrality in Europe is a mess, in America things are happening at the moment.
Facebook/google/windows/apps collect more data than ever.
Intel Management Engine, UEFI, baseband and so on.
Smartphones are all a mess security wise.
So can you come with any ideas of things going well to keep me from being completely cynical?
Not just temporary wins, but where we are actually moving in the right direction?
Also feel free to post things I missed.
