  4. This tool can make your pics undetectable to facial recognition without ruining them "https://www.dailydot.com/debug/donotpay-photo-ninja-facial-recognition/" A new tool is promising to make your pictures undetectable to facial recognition software without significantly changing their appearance. Developed by DoNotPay, the company behind the app that uses AI to provide legal services, Photo Ninja moves the location of certain pixels, alters colors, and adds unnoticeable objects into images. “Photo Ninja uses a novel series of steganography, detection perturbation, visible overlay, and several other AI-based enhancement processes to shield your images from reverse image searches without compromising the look of your photo,” the company said. Browder also showcased the tool’s capabilities by altering a photo of President Joe Biden. When performing a reverse image search, Browder says, Google was unable to recognize the president in the altered picture.

  6. Use the DuckDuckGo Extension to Block FLoC, Google’s New Tracking Method in Chrome "https://spreadprivacy.com/block-floc-with-duckduckgo/" Google has created a new tracking method called FLoC, put it in Chrome, and automatically turned it on for millions of users. FLoC is bad for privacy: It puts you in a group based on your browsing history, and any website can get that group FLoC ID to target and fingerprint you. You can use the DuckDuckGo Chrome extension to block FLoC's tracking, which is an enhancement to its tracker blocking and directly in line with the extension's single purpose of protecting your privacy holistically as you use Chrome.
  7. A little boy was walking down a road. A policeman comes up to him and asks him whether he has seen a thief running away. The little boy says, "Go along this road, and you will come upon and intersection of four roads. Go along the fourth road, and you will find four wide alleys. Go in the fourth alley and you will come across four neighborhoods. Enter the fourth neighborhood and you will find four societies. Go in the fourth society and you will see four buildings. In the fourth building, go to the fourth floor. On the fourth floor, knock on the door to the fourth house. A lady of around forty will open the door. Ask her to lead you to the fourth room of the house. In that room, open the fourth cupboard, and you will see four drawers. In the drawer, you will find four photos. The fourth photo is of God, and I swear to God, that I have not seen this thief.
  8. Putin and Obama meet in Moscow They're debating the merits fo their respective societies. They argue about moral values and which country is doing better. Obama: I've heard that all Russian are alcoholics. Putin: That's a Russophobic myth. I bet there's not a single drunk out in Moscow tonight. Obama: I don't believe you. I bet if we take your limo out for a spin I'll see some drunks staggering around. Putin: Okay, let me prove you wrong. We will drive around and if you see a single drunk you can shoot them with my own gun. Putin let us the FSB know what they're doing, and tells them to do a sweep and round up every single drunk on their route. He says if Obama sees a single drunk everyone will get sent to Siberia. Obama and Putin drive around for 10 minutes, and the streets are empty. Not a single person is out, let alone a drunk. Obama is about to accept defeat when a visibly drunk man staggers out of an apartment building, singing a Russian folk song. Obama leans out the window and shoots him. Obama: See Vlad, I saw one person and he was drunk! All Russians are drunks! Six months later Putin travels to Washington DC and he and Obama are having the same argument about morals and society. Putin suggests they do the same thing they did in Moscow, and he will shoot any drunks that he sees on Washington's streets. Obama let's the Secret Service know to go ahead and make sure there are no drunks anywhere on their route.. The two presidents drive around for 10 minutes, without seeing anyone. Just as they're turning around a huge group of drunks stumbles out of a bar. Putin gets excited, leans out the window and mows them all down. He teases Obama for the rest of the night. Putin: Barack, you said Russians were worse drunks than Americans. I just killed 20 of them, looks like Russia wins again! The next morning Vladimir Putin picks up the newspaper and sees the headline: 20 Russian Embassy Workers Slain In Drive-By Shooting.
  9. The perfect AI Some many years into the future... Scientist : Yessss!!!! After years of work, I have finally created the perfect AI humanoid. This robot has its own brain and can think and do exactly like a human being. Can't wait to try it out. He switches humanoid on and thinks of a challenging task Scientist : I would like you to go on the internet net, prepare mathematical skills and solve the equation on the board The humanoid goes on the computer and starts using Google. Meanwhile, the scientist leaves for lunch and hopes for a result by the time he comes. 2 hours later, the scientist walks in to find the humanoid watching Friends on Netflix while simultaneously posting his believes for Flat Earth Society on Facebook and exclaims, "Success".
  10. Tks. I only try to post news which I feel are interesting and try to limit posts.

  12. This is unexpected, having never come across such issues in past.the Would be helpful if any screenshot of what Google does/ blocks is made known. Tks
  13. Fertility rate: 'Jaw-dropping' global crash in children being born https://www.bbc.com/news/health-53409521 The world is ill-prepared for the global crash in children being born which is set to have a "jaw-dropping" impact on societies, say researchers. Falling fertility rates mean nearly every country could have shrinking populations by the end of the century. And 23 nations - including Spain and Japan - are expected to see their populations halve by 2100. Countries will also age dramatically, with as many people turning 80 as there are being born. Prof Murray adds: "It will create enormous social change. It makes me worried because I have an eight-year-old daughter and I wonder what the world will be like." Who pays tax in a massively aged world? Who pays for healthcare for the elderly? Who looks after the elderly? Will people still be able to retire from work? "We need a soft landing," argues Prof Murray What do the experts say? Prof Ibrahim Abubakar, University College London (UCL), said: "If these predictions are even half accurate, migration will become a necessity for all nations and not an option. "To be successful we need a fundamental rethink of global politics. "The distribution of working-age populations will be crucial to whether humanity prospers or withers."
  14. There is a restaurant that advertises that it will serve you anything you want, but if they can't, then they will gift you $5000 as an apology. A man passing by sees this message advertised at the entrance, and believes this to be bullshiet, but decides to try it out anyway. He enters and a waiter takes him to a table. The waiter asks, "What would you like to eat today, sir?" Man: "I would like an elephant's ear and a muffin to eat, please" Waiter: "Give us just a moment." The waiter leaves to the kitchen. As a few minutes pass by; the man believes he's going to get an easy $5000 as he thinks they are taking too long and probably preparing something else. At this moment, the waiter returns. Appearing a little anxious, the waiter asks, "Apologies sir, but do you mind telling me what kind of elephant you want this ear from?" The man is stunned. He didn't think they'd get to this moment. Man: "Uhhh......An Indian elephant is fine." Waiter: "Thank you." The waiter goes back to the kitchen. 1 minute later, the waiter returns again. Waiter: "And which side did you want the ear from?" The man is starting to sweat bullets at this point. Man: "Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..........Left ear, i guess........" Waiter: "Splendid." The waiter leaves to the kitchen yet again. The man is scared as he has no idea how much this ear is going to blast away his wallet. 5 minutes later, the waiter comes back with a platter of food and $5000 for the man. Waiter: "Here is your order sir. Sorry, but we are out of muffins for today."
  15. It’s time to stop using SMS for anything. "https://lucky225.medium.com/its-time-to-stop-using-sms-for-anything-203c41361c80" By now most infosec professionals are aware of various ways SMS text messaging can be hijacked. For example so-called “SIM Swap” attacks, SS7 attacks, Port-out fraud, etc. All of these attacks however do require some level of sophistication, whether it be high level access to SS7, or account information or social engineering to successfully port out the phone number to a new provider or swap the sim on the existing account. Your OTP may not be safe as new SMS attack redirects texts to hackers Besides all the things this new attack involves, the most interesting aspect is that the tools only need hackers to pay $16. https://www.indiatoday.in/amp/technology/news/story/your-otp-may-not-be-safe-as-new-sms-attack-redirects-texts-to-hackers-1779805-2021-03-16 Hackers are leveraging an exploit in the SMS management service for an attack. Hackers are able to redirect any SMS meant for a number to their own system. These services are available through several companies for as low as $16. Just when you think your mobile phone is finally free of any potential threat from hackers, a new attack is always lurking. A new attack has now been discovered where hackers are able to redirect SMS bound for the victim’s phone number to their systems. Hackers use text-messaging management services, meant for business, to carry out the attack, thanks to the exploit in these services. So, in a way, these attacks are possible because of the negligence of the telecom industry, at least in the US, and hackers are in for a treat. Using the attack, hackers can redirect important text messages, such as those containing OTP or login links for services such as WhatsApp.
