*** What to Expect in Surveillance Politics in 2014 (Hint: It's Not Reform) ***
---------------------------------------------
You would think that a federal district judge calling the NSA program almost Orwellian would be a good sign for surveillance and privacy in 2014. If you're holding out hope for an act of political courage to end bulk surveillance ...

*** DHS Turns To Unpaid Interns For Nations Cyber Security ***
---------------------------------------------
theodp writes "A week after President Obama stressed the importance of computer science to America, the Department of Homeland Security put out a call for 100+ of the nations best-and-brightest college students to work for nothing on the nations cyber security.

Gleich mehrere Sicherheitslücken entdeckte ein IT-Forensik-Experte in dem neuen Write-Blocker Ditto. Die Folge: Statt seine eigentliche Arbeit zu verrichten, kann das Gerät selbst als Angriffswerkzeug missbraucht werden und Untersuchungen torpedieren.

*** Strange DNS Queries - Request for Packets, (Sat, Dec 21st) ***
---------------------------------------------
We have received a pcap sample of DNS queries that display a strange behavior. The queries are type ANY for domains ghmn.ru and fkfkfkfa.com. When doing a nslookup, both domains have 100 IPs listed under their domain names with each of them resolving exactly the same last octets (i.e. .1, .10, .100, etc). Queries with the same transaction ID are often repeated several times. The traffic samples we have received indicate the queries are sent by either a host or a server.  If anyone else is...

*** How I hacked a journalist ***
---------------------------------------------
It started off as a follow-up to a story a journalist had written several years ago. The story was about data protection, and had showed that a simple subject access request could provide you with enough information to steal someone's identity. Now, Claudia Joseph wanted to see if anything had changed and to update the world on the new dangers. What would happen if somebody was able to infiltrate your online life? Claudia contacted us and started the conversation with "Can you hack...
