All news aggregation websites are generally bad, they all need human interpretation and filtering of the junk info leaving the newsworthy info, while commentary on junk info is usually a waste of time used to get people clicking links. Newsworthy doesn't mean good or bad, just worthy enough to be called "news". What a nigger does basically every other day somewhere in the US isn't really "news". Excessive speculation about bitcoins isn't really "news". A gang bust isn't news. A huge gang bust is semi newsworthy depending on the context but it's usually not because the Jewish Mafia is mostly intact. Articles of junk news for the sake of commentary isn't newsworthy commentary nor is it "news". Using shitty opinionated headlines concerning facts for articles that isn't newsworthy isn't going to get better because you use news-speak. Third world country's local news or some news about a specific species isn't news if it isn't geopolitical or if it does nothing to do with the economy, war, kikes, money, things that actually matter in life, etc., so designated shitting streets and crabposting isn't newsworthy. Drama isn't news either, keep that out of news and in other boards. News that praises politicians for things that they didn't do isn't news.

>designated shitting streets and crabposting isn't newsworthy

Thank God we don't have that here. About 50% of the news on this board is economic related, the rest are issues like corruption, geopolitics, civil rights, sometimes even health related news. Few articles about major hacks, leaks and spy tech trickle out here and there too.

If you don't like this board the way it is, you really should use some kind of news aggregation website to help you find news you feel worthy of being posted. Unless you have the time to sift through hundreds upon hundreds of online news sites every day. News aggregation makes this much easier for people.

Evil Google Announces Complete Ban Of Independent News Outlets, Will Censor All Independent News From Results Reader 11/22/2017 (Wed) 15:08:14 Id: a581b4 [Preview] No. 3375 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Google has announced plans to completely purge independent media outlets from their search engine just in time for Christmas.

Eric Schmidt, executive chairman of Google’s parent company Alphabet, announced that Google is now working aggressively on a new algorithm designed to “de-rank” websites that go against popular mainstream opinion.

He openly admits that the influential RT and Sputnik are first on their radar to be purged from the net, with other similar sites likely to follow suit.


And this is just the beginning... they'll soon label anything that goes against the current establishment "Russian propaganda" (many politicians and corporate media presstitutes already do that today).

Soon Google will provide a search engine modeled after political correctness and only show you what the government wants you to see!

Here are some alternatives search engines, start using them:

BOOM! Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's Home Raided By Police In Corruption Crackdown Reader 11/21/2017 (Tue) 13:02:38 Id: ecbdcc [Preview] No. 3326 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
Israeli police have raided the home of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as part of an investigation into corruption allegations.

Detectives have previously quizzed him over claims he illegally received gifts from Hollywood and business figures. A separate investigation is looking into secret talks with the publisher of a huge Israeli newspaper in which the Israeli PM demanded positive coverage in exchange for reining in a free pro-Netanyahu daily.

Independent.co.uk reports: Police were questioning Mr Netanyahu for the sixth time on Sunday, according to Israeli media. A police spokeswoman declined to confirm the reports.

No charges have been brought against the Israeli leader, who has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing and called the accusations against him a witch hunt orchestrated by a hostile media.

The scandal has yet to threaten his eight-year rule, but has harmed his public approval ratings.

Investigators arrived at Mr Netanyahu’s official residence in Jerusalem late on Sunday afternoon and disappeared behind security gates.

Israeli media reported this week that police believe they have sufficient evidence to charge the Prime Minister with bribery for accepting gifts worth hundreds of thousands of shekels from wealthy businessmen.

Among the alleged donors is billionaire film producer Arnon Milchan, who purportedly gave cigars and champagne to the premier over a seven to eight-year period. In return, Mr Netanyahu is claimed to have lobbied then US Secretary of State John Kerry over Mr Milchan’s bid to acquire a new US visa.

In a separate case, the Israeli leader’s wife, Sara Netanyahu, is facing a trial over alleged misuse of public funds. She is accused of using money set aside for the prime minister’s official residence for furniture and improvements to the pair’s private home, among other offences.

New Gold-Backed Debit Card Launched In Partnership With MasterCard Reader 11/21/2017 (Tue) 16:30:39 Id: 0245a9 [Preview] No. 3340 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
In recent years, there has been a major debate about the respective merits of gold versus Bitcoin, even though many, not all, gold bulls are also supporters of the latter. Gold advocates generally view favourably Bitcoin’s inherent characteristics of decentralisation, finite supply and ability to operate (so far) outside of the usual interference by western central banks. Having said that, the launch of Bitcoin futures on the CME in the coming weeks could lead to naked shorting of “paper Bitcoin” by any parties, including central banks and large commercial banks, who deem capping of the Bitcoin price necessary. As we discussed last week in "Financial Times: Sell Bitcoin Because The Market Is About To Become "Civilized", this could align Bitcoin with one of the major issues which has held the gold market hostage for years, time will tell.

London-based Glint has been about what it planned to offer, despite several funding rounds and a vague description that it wanted to a create new “global currency” based on gold. Well, today the fintech startup is finally de-cloaking with a staggered launch of its multi-currency account, app and card that does indeed let you store your money in gold and convert it back to fiat currency at the point of payment.

Initially, Glint, which is regulated by the FCA under an e-money institution license, is supporting Sterling and gold, with more currencies to come. Exchange rates between currencies are promised to be “the real exchange rate,” and the Glint card itself is a Mastercard and therefore widely accepted.

However, while some users may join for the low exchange rate and the Glint wallet’s multi-currency support, the startup’s differentiation is of course the way it does in effect turn gold into a widely accepted global currency, albeit it by proxy.


Fintech group Glint has teamed up with Lloyds Banking Group in the UK and MasterCard to create an app that enables people to load credit in various currencies, which can then be used to buy a portion of a physical gold bar. Customers use the app at the checkout to select whether to pay in a currency or gold, before transacting with their MasterCard.

The development marks the first time people in the UK and overseas can own just a portion of a gold bar through an app, which can then be used in mobile and debit card-based payments. The app also allows people to send gold to peers in the form of a digital payment. Jason Cozens, Glint’s chief executive and co-founder, said: “Everyone is familiar with gold as one of society’s oldest means of exchange, its universal acceptance, its reliability, its history as a store of wealth and as a means of underpinning the value of ‘paper’ currencies. “Unlike paper currencies, gold can’t be wiped out, devalued or corrupted.”

If you’ve been watching carefully Glint (website is glintpay.com) has been working towards this moment for some time. The Crunch reported a capital raising in August this year, noting the impressive list of backers.

Glint, a stealthy London fintech startup that promises a new “global currency,” has raised £3.1 million from a plethora of individual backers in the financial services and asset management space, alongside early-stage investor Bray Capital.

They comprise Haruko Fukuda, former CEO of the World Gold Council and NED of Investec Bank; Oliver Bolitho, formerly Chairman of Goldman Sachs Asset Management Asia; Hugh Sloane, co-founder of asset manager Sloane Robinson; and Lord Flight Of Worcester, formerly of Guinness Flight Global Asset Management.

Other supporters of the new app include the Tokyo Commodity Exchange, and NEC Capital Solutions, a technology integration company. The co-founder and COO of Glint, Ben Davies (right in the photo below), is well known to us for his media appearances - often lambasting manipulation of the gold price – and for running the precious metals investment fund, Hinde Capital. The CEO and co-founder, Jason Cozens, also has gold market experience, having set up “GoldMadeSimple.com, a website that allows investors to buy and store physical gold. Additionally, he set up two ecommerce and online marketing businesses.

Mr Davies said the app helps to “democratise” gold by opening access to people who might not be able to afford to buy a whole bar, rather than the commodity being the “preserve of the wealthy”. He added: “The advent of electronic wallets and faster payments through technology means we’re able to use gold in the electronic payment system.

“We believe over next few decades people will need the ability to protect their money by owning gold and have the ability to spend it.

We doubt that we’ll have to wait two decades before the vast majority of people will need to protect the value of their money. It could be a matter of months, so Glint’s new service might prove timely. Here are some further thoughts from Davies in the FT article.

Glint’s new service is riding the wave of alternative payments, such as bitcoin, as more people seek payment methods that can store value in a way that differs from traditional currencies. Ben Davies, a co-founder of Glint, said: “We want to create a fairer form of money whereby we give you choice and control over how you protect your money in an era where central banks issue more currency, and so the value of your currency is falling.”

Heres my opinion about this whole thing: obviously many financial institutions see the "writing on the wall" as far as the demise of US petrodollar reserve - which is suffering (as the Chinese like to say) a death by a thousand cuts.

OK. So they are also panicking about the recent blockchain technology which could usurp control and nullify regulations from central banking institutions and governments in the near future. If it gains enough traction that is, these cryptocurrencies could be used to dodge taxes and mitigate austerity measures, and revolutionize the free market (which the Rothschild banking cabal would HATE).

So the elites are panicking now, they need to do something and quick. So they are stepping up to the plate now, ready to try new 'tricks' to lure more disgruntled people back into the fiat system.

Just be aware of this.

I highly recommend people get prepared properly first and foremost: basic essentials for survival are key to stock up on. See here: >>2967 ...With that plenty of guns and ammo and related accessories to maintain and use those guns long-term.

Second, proper DIY fortification of all entry-points within your home / apartment. Windows and doors. I'm talking anything from mounting window bars from the inside to mounting katy-bars and strike plates to fortify the deadbolt locks and studs around your doors making them batter ram proof. (Yes, I've done this myself. Totally legal and completely possible to do and it does not cost very much either!)

Third: investing in wealth preservation. Silver coins and bars for bartering. Gold coins to purchase valuable assets in the future: property, a car, a house, etc.

Bitcoins and this new Glick should be used only to diversify a percentage of your wealth for an emergency safe haven should things turn south - but these will no longer be of any value in a grid-down situation (which you better prepare for!)

Christ you are fucking dumb if you really believe net neutrality is a good thing. It's just a fucking power grab from a pro consolidation globalist government. What's really needed is anti monopoly laws, because that's the actual problem. There needs to be more providers and that's what the government should be facilitating. Use of QOS on networks is not evil and you have no right to a service that isn't a basic human right, like FUCKING WATER! Stop bitching about this nonsense and complain about people getting equal access to clean drinking water you asshole.

Most libraries aren't free and would shut down anyway without the government helping them stay open for the benefit of those without other ways of accessing information.

Anti-trust laws would end this whole fiasco, I agree.

I am concerned that this whole "net neutrality" crisis is manufactured to bring the internet under control by (((someone))) - whether that be government or large corporate entities/monopolies.

If the government did its job and perused anti-trust laws these monopolies would have already broken up and thus you have internet freedom WITHOUT the whole "FCC needs to regulate this for your own good goyim!"

I don't really care about paying 40 to 50 bucks a month for my ISP bill because I have an older contract that grants me unlimited monthly bandwidth. Trick is to ditch the smartphones and all that fancy crapola and have a regular modem, computer and internet service and it will end up saving you money over time.

I just don't want ISPs getting an excuse to jack those prices higher someday. Nor do I want our government in full control of the internet either (like Obamacare it would end up another disaster for us).

If the ISPs get too big (which I believe many have) we have anti-trust laws to break their monopolies up and I think that would be a healthy thing to do for the marketplace. It would encourage more competition and lower prices overtime as smaller companies compete with one another. If one company were to be unfair, people would have the option to switch services (an option many do not have under the current monopolies).

Desperate Despots: 21 New Gun Control Bills Floating Around Congress, Little To No Chance of Passing Reader 11/21/2017 (Tue) 22:21:57 Id: 2b6bf8 [Preview] No. 3354 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
You can hear them screaming...

Senate Democrats and their surrogates in various groups are currently pushing 21 new gun controls against law-abiding citizens.

These controls range from an all-out ban on semiautomatic firearms to regulations on single shot muzzleloaders and limits on the number of guns someone can pass to a felon.

Breitbart News outlined the first nine of these gun controls on October 11: https://archive.fo/go66t

Numerous others have flooded in since the introduction of those original nine. The newest suggested controls include regulation on single shot muzzleloaders. In fact, Gabby Giffords gun control group suggests muzzleloaders could be the next bump stock. Her group also wants gun control on “high capacity shotguns,” binary triggers, “AK and AR style pistols,” arm braces for AR style pistols, “AR pistol blade stabilizers,” .50 caliber rifles, .50 caliber ammunition, and tracer rounds for various calibers of firearms.

Giffords’ group seeks to substantiate their call for a ban on tracer rounds by writing, “Tracer rounds allow a shooter to see where rounds are tracking at night.”

Two other gun controls are being pushed by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY). The first of the two is a federal ban on firearms trafficking. She is pushing this ban although such trafficking is already clearly prohibited via ATF background check form 4473. LIBN reports that Gillibrand is also again pushing the Hadiya Pendleton and Nyasia Pryear-Yard Gun Trafficking & Crime Prevention Act, which “would make it illegal to sell purchase, or transfer two or more firearms to someone whom the seller knows, or has reasonable cause to know, is a felon or convicted domestic abuser.”

Lastly, the 21st gun control currently being pushed is regulation on so-called “ghost guns.” These are guns that are legal to manufacture at home, but require a significant amount of know-how and equipment to accomplish. The establishment media is currently pointed to two crimes committed with “ghost guns” as justification for a new federal law to regulate the sale, manufacture of the firearms.

Five New Revelations In The Russian Uranium One Case Reader 11/21/2017 (Tue) 15:00:01 Id: 25ae13 [Preview] No. 3332 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

An FBI informant gathered extensive evidence during his six years undercover about a Russian plot to corner the American uranium market, ranging from corruption inside a U.S. nuclear transport company to Obama administration approvals that let Moscow buy and sell more atomic fuels, according to more than 5,000 pages of documents from the counterintelligence investigation.

The memos, reviewed by The Hill, conflict with statements made by Justice Department officials in recent days that informant William Campbell’s prior work won’t shed much light on the U.S. government’s controversial decision in 2010 to approve Russia’s purchase of the Uranium One mining company and its substantial U.S. assets.

Campbell documented for his FBI handlers the first illegal activity by Russians nuclear industry officials in fall 2009, nearly a entire year before the Russian state-owned Rosatom nuclear firm won Obama administration approval for the Uranium One deal, the memos show.


Evidence gathered by an FBI undercover informant conflicts with several media reports as well as statements by Justice officials concerning the connections between a Russian nuclear bribery case and the Obama administration's approval of the sale of uranium One to Russia's state-owned Rosatom nuclear company.

During Campbell’s time working as a confidential informant, he was required by the Russians to launder large sums of money to financial institutions in Cyprus, Latvia and Seychelles. With Campbell’s help the FBI uncovered an extensive money Russian nuclear money laundering apparatus and Campbell was working solo. He was required to launder money, from his own salary, on particular days and times when Russian money handlers would be working at the banks. If he missed a scheduled pay time for any reason his Russian counterparts would threaten him, he told his attorney. He was also required on many occasions to deliver cash directly to those who were being paid off, most of which he recorded on hidden cameras for the FBI.

It didn’t end there. In order to keep his cover he spent many nights with his Russian counterparts drinking, collecting information and more importantly gaining their trust. He was in his early 60s and his once unblemished driving record ended with a DUI in 2008 and two other reckless driving charges in 2010 and 2012, said Toensing, who noted they were all misdemeanors.

“However, the pressure of living a double life and being threatened by the Russians if he violated their trust took a toll,” said Toensing.

The bureau had collected thousands of pages of documentation, including daily briefs from Campbell, which documented his interactions with the Russians and their co-conspirators. He also became a crucial eyewitness to the inside workings and maneuverings of the Russian nuclear industry. His information eventually led to the successful prosecution and indictments of four players involved in the scheme, which included American and Russian nationals, according to court documents and Toensing.

“Beginning in 2008, Mr. Campbell provided the U.S. government ample documented evidence of corruption in the Russian nuclear industry. Nevertheless, in October 2010 the Obama Administration authorized that corrupt entity to purchase a company that controlled 20% of the U.S. uranium supply,” said Toensing.


The cast of characters deep within the Russian nuclear agency also included another American businessman named Rod Fisk, whose company Transportation Logistics International, also known as TLI, was the primary transport company for Russian enriched uranium sold to the United States.

Fisk passed away in 2011, and his Vice President Daren Condrey replaced him. In 2015, Daren Condrey, of Maryland, pleaded guilty to conspiring to violate the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and conspiring to commit wire fraud, according to the DOJ.

Adding to the colorful array of Russian criminals the FBI was watching, was a Russian national named Vadim Mikerin. He was then a top official of the Russian nuclear arms subsidiary Tenex. Mikerin, who had close ties to elite members of the Kremlin, and who bragged in emails and documents about his families connections to current Russian President Vladimir Putin, would later become president of Tenam, the American subsidiary that began operations in 2010, according to the contract. Boris Rubizhevsky, another Russian national from New Jersey, who was president of the security firm NEXGEN Security, also pleaded guilty in 2015, to conspiracy to commit money laundering. He served as a consultant to TENAM and to Mikerin. He was sentenced to prison last week along with three years of supervised release and a $26,500 fine, according to a recent Reuters report.

Mikerin was eventually arrested for a racketeering scheme that dated back to 2004, and included fraud, extortion and money laundering. But he only plead guilty to money-laundering. He was sentenced to 48 months in prison in December 2015.

In Mikerin's indictment, Campbell was referred to by Rosenstein as a victim, and not as a long time confidential informant with the FBI, who was also providing counterintelligence information on the Russians.

“The DOJ falsely described Mr. Campbell as a ‘victim’ in its initial indictment,” said Toensing. “The DOJ did not want the defense to cross exam Mr. Campbell about his counter intelligence activities. Those are the reasons Mr. Campbell was not utilized as a witness in 2014. The so-called ‘sources’ know so little about the case that they are not aware the agents gave him a check for over $50,000.”

Despite the wealth of information collected by the FBI during that time from Campbell, the Justice Department didn’t move forward indictments for prosecution until 2014, long after CFIUS approved the sale of Uranium One. Members of Congress and the American public were not informed in 2010 of the corruption within the Russian nuclear companies.


In one June, 2010, email from Fisk to Campbell, which was collected as evidence by the FBI, Fisk describes Russia’s intent on expanding its Uranium expansion in the United States.

“The attached article is of interest as I believe it highlights the ongoing resolve in Russia to gradually and systematically acquire and control global energy resources,” said Fisk, who titled the subject line of the email ‘Russian uranium.’ The article attached to Fisk’s email, was a Reuters report in June, 2010, titled ‘Despite price falls, ARMZ confident of Uranium One shareholder approval.’

Atomredmetzoloto, known as ARMZ, is the mining arm of Rosatom. On June 8, 2010, Uranium One announced it had signed an agreement that would give “not less than 51%” of the company to JSC Atomredmetzoloto, or ARMZ.” Uranium One has two licensed mining operations in Wyoming that amount to about “20 percent of the currently licensed uranium in-situ recovery production capacity in the U.S,” according to the Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Fisk noted in the email to Campbell that he had spoken with a senior executive of Uranium One, saying, “I spoke with a senior Uranium One executive (the company was formed in South Africa and I know the former Chairman and some of the senior personnel) and he said that corporate management was not even told before the announcement was made.”

Fisk stressed concerns regarding Rosatom’s plans to acquire Uranium One, saying “several have said confidentially that they will support the sale to ARMZ, get their $1.06/share payout, sell their shareholdings and then resign. The premium of a a dollar per share, on a stock-price of just over two dollars per share, is also pretty strange.”

In an Oct. 6, 2010, email with the subject line “ARMZ + Uranium One,” Fisk forwarded a news article outlining Republican efforts to derail the sale of Uranium One, stating “the referenced article may present a very good opportunity for Sigma (Campbell’s company) to try and remove the opposing influences, if that is something you can do.”

Campbell eventually helped the FBI prove that Fisk’s company, which had gained approval to transport low and high enriched uranium, had been compromised by the Russian energy company Rosatom and its Tenex arm, according to court documents. The FBI discovered that Fisk, and later another TLI executive, Condrey, had been paying hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes to a Tenex official to keep their transportation contracts. The FBI and Justice Department also discovered that the scheme dated back to 2004, raising concerns among US intelligence officials and other senior officials in the U.S. government that TLI, which was moving enriched uranium, had been or could be compromised.“This is not just about bribery and kickbacks but about a U.S. company that was transporting yellow-cake for the Russians with our approval,” said the U.S. intelligence official, who asked not to be named due to the nature of their work. “This should raise serious questions. At the time everyone was concerned about Russia’s ties to Iran, we still are. And of course, Russia’s intentions and reach into the U.S. energy market.”


In early 2010, Russian nuclear executives, who were worried that Congressional members would find a way to block Moscow’s push into the U.S. energy market, told Campbell to hire an American nuclear expert as a consultant.

The Russian’s recommended Cheryl Moss Herman, who was then working as a freelance consultant, to help navigate the politically charged issues surrounding the purchase of Uranium One and Russia’s vested interest in American energy, according to numerous documents reviewed by this reporter.

The memoranda written by Moss Herman, titled “Policy/Legislative Issues Affecting the Business Climate in the U.S. for TENAM/Tenex,” discussed the Department of Energy’s uranium regulations, congressional opposition to Russia’s purchase of Uranium One and how Russia’s relationship with Iran could plague potential deals.

The memorandum was also meant to provide the Russian nuclear executives with “the current status, including background information, and discussion on a few key issues that could affect the business climate for TENAM/Tenex’s directly and also introduces a number of other issues that could also have an impact on the nuclear business climate in the United States.”

She stated, “some Republicans truly fear the entry of Russia into the U.S. market, as demonstrated by the fact that they are taking steps to block the purchase of Uranium One by Atomredmetzoloto (ARMZ).”

Moss Herman warned the then Russian nuclear executive, Mikerin, that there was significant congressional opposition to Russia, due to its relationship with Iran, in her memorandum. She stated, “any proposal to approve the 123 Agreement would be met with resistance from some, especially House Foreign Affairs Ranking Republican Member Ros-Lehtinen, who remains concerned about Russia’s engagement with Iran.”

"There are some in Congress who believe that Russia is providing Iran with sensitive nuclear technology as well as the nuclear know-how that will allow it to proliferate a nuclear weapons program, despite Russian Government statements to the contrary,” said Moss Herman. “Based on these concerns, broad Iran sanctions legislation was introduced in the House of Representatives, with bipartisan support, in April 2009."

Moss Herman said in her report to Mikerin, “this effort bears watching as it may provide clues as to the likely political reaction if a Russian entity was going to participate in the construction and operation of a uranium enrichment plant in the U.S.”

In the report, Moss Herman says that the new revised Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act of 2010, are not as stringent.

"Although the earlier legislation included a prohibition on the entry into force of a 123 Agreement with any country that conducts nuclear business with Iran, the most recent version of CISADA (Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability and Divestment Act of 2010), which was codified into law, does not include such a prohibition."

Last week, Rep. Ron DeSantis, R-FL, pressed Sessions, on the approval of Uranium One, stressing that the FBI had evidence from Mr. Campbell as early as 2009, that some of the companies and Russian’s connected to the nuclear arm were involved in “bribery, kickbacks and money laundering.” Rep. DeSantis, questioned whether the FBI or any member of DOJ informed the Obama administration of the case, before the administration approved the sale.

Sessions side-stepped the question, saying “the way I understood that matter was that Mr. Mikerin was convicted, was not connected to the CFIUS problem that occurred two to three years before.”

And Rep. Jim Jordan, also a member of the House Judiciary Committee, repeatedly asked Sessions if a second special counsel would be appointed to investigate Uranium One.

But Sessions, whose office had written a formal letter this month stating it would investigate whether a Special Counsel would be necessary, seemed to suggest the DOJ would need more reasons to do so.

Sessions told Jordan that just because it "looks like" it is worthy of the appointment of a Special Counsel "is not enough basis to appoint one."

Isgur Flores said the “Attorney General’s testimony is accurate. The criminal case in which Mikerin was convicted and the factual and legal requirements needed to make that case did not address the CFIUS matter.”

After Campbell's gag order was lifted last month by the Department of Justice, allowing him to testify to Congress about his contribution to the case, several Justice Department officials, who formerly commended Campbell, have spoken on background to other news agencies disparaging Campbell and his work at that time.

THIS Is Why You Should Use Noscript: Major Websites' Scripts Caught Keylogging And Monitoring Scrolling Behavior Reader 11/21/2017 (Tue) 14:16:00 Id: 27eba2 [Preview] No. 3329 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]

If you have the uncomfortable sense someone is looking over your shoulder as you surf the Web, you're not being paranoid. A new study finds hundreds of sites—including microsoft.com, adobe.com, and godaddy.com—employ scripts that record visitors' keystrokes, mouse movements, and scrolling behavior in real time, even before the input is submitted or is later deleted.

Session replay scripts are provided by third-party analytics services that are designed to help site operators better understand how visitors interact with their Web properties and identify specific pages that are confusing or broken. As their name implies, the scripts allow the operators to re-enact individual browsing sessions. Each click, input, and scroll can be recorded and later played back.

A study published last week reported that 482 of the 50,000 most trafficked websites employ such scripts, usually with no clear disclosure. It's not always easy to detect sites that employ such scripts. The actual number is almost certainly much higher, particularly among sites outside the top 50,000 that were studied.

"Collection of page content by third-party replay scripts may cause sensitive information, such as medical conditions, credit card details, and other personal information displayed on a page, to leak to the third-party as part of the recording," Steven Englehardt, a PhD candidate at Princeton University, wrote. "This may expose users to identity theft, online scams, and other unwanted behavior. The same is true for the collection of user inputs during checkout and registration processes."

Englehardt installed replay scripts from six of the most widely used services and found they all exposed visitors' private moments to varying degrees. During the process of creating an account, for instance, the scripts logged at least partial input typed into various fields. Scripts from FullStory, Hotjar, Yandex, and Smartlook were the most intrusive because, by default, they recorded all input typed into fields for names, e-mail addresses, phone numbers, addresses, Social Security numbers, and dates of birth.

The following video captured data as it was transmitted in real time to FullStory: https://hooktube.com/watch?v=l0Yc8s0DTZA

Even when services took steps to mask some of the data, they often did so in ways that continued to jeopardize visitor privacy. Smartlook and UserReplay, for instance, collected the number of characters typed into password fields. UserReplay also logged the last four digits of visitors' credit card numbers.

Englehardt said the services provide manual and automatic tools website operators can use to redact information that is collected on their properties. But the tools in many cases require large amounts of developer time and skill. And even then, sites with strong legal incentives not to leak sensitive data were found doing just that. Walgreens.com, for instance, sent medical conditions and prescriptions alongside user names to FullStory despite the extensive use of manual redactions on the pharmacy site.

been looking for a good alternative for chrome based browsers. most seem kind of obtuse for me like umatrix where as no script was pretty easy to use and set up once you figured out what you were looking at.

Anything modern, anything with a chrome platform is not safe unless you have an add-on like Noscript installed within the web browser (which blocks most third party scripts). Even if you have Noscript installed you might want to make sure you "Block Global Scripts" and re-configure the whitelist to make sure it does not allow scripts from Facebook or Google. Default mode is for normfag chumps, so re-configuration is needed for upmost security and privacy.

Make sure to look at all the options within Noscript too, you have the option of disabling insecurities like Javascript however the more secure your browser the more inconvenience you'll have to accept while surfing the web. Good thing is you can temporarily allow certain scripts from certain sites and when finished you can revoke all those temporary permissions.

I have my Noscript set up to only allow scripts from websites I routinely visit (which I selected to whitelist myself) - every other script would be blocked and denied instantly. So an "endchan.xyz" script would be allowed, but any other script embedded within this website would be denied access to my browser.

Don't know if this helps but see video. Brave browser seems to block many scripts and ads.

Its not a viable option until it allows users to install chrome addons like other chrome forks. Adnasium specifically would fit with brave because brave counts the scripts blocked and time saved and with adnausium it counts the ads blocked and money the ads would have made if they where not blocked. you compound the productivity
