Worry about Internet Security and Privacy? Don’t be ridiculous!!

Worry about Internet Security and Privacy?  Don’t be ridiculous!!

by Derek Paul Gendron

I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal that basically painted the picture of a bleak future with AntiVirus software and Internet security and privacy.  The whole point of the article basically came out and said it:  We can’t stop hackers from getting in – they seized the castle of opportunity, we just have to know how to manage them and what they get their hands on…

Internet security and privacy
I am Hacker – hello!

Seriously, they said in so many words.  Okay to be fair, here is the actual content of what was said:

The article, titled  Symantec Develops New Attack on Cyberhacking starts with this sentence:symantec

Symantec Corp. SYMC -0.05% invented commercial antivirus software to protect computers from hackers a quarter-century ago. Now the company says such tactics are doomed to failure.”

Okay, if that wasn’t bad enough it later went on to say:

Antivirus products aim to prevent hackers from getting into a computer. But hackers often get in anyway these days.

Now I am no expert, but this is quickly sounding like we have given up the battle altogether on Internet security and privacy.  I mean if Symantec is saying this, McAfee is probably thinking in the same direction as are most of the other smaller companies out there.  Does that concern anyone?    Hey, they are getting too good so let’s just invite them in and keep our drunk friend from throwing up on our carpet…

Hmm.

And then, they are quoted as saying:  Antivirus “is dead,” says Brian Dye, Symantec’s senior vice president for information security. “We don’t think of antivirus as a moneymaker in any way.”

Okay did he mean that its dead, they can stop it or did he mean, its dead we can’t make any money at it dead?

And then later in the article after discussing the “pickle”, Symantec was in as 40% of their revenue is yielded from antivirus protection market, did they say they would stop taking people’s money for this dead market?

Nope.

Even though in the article they mention that Symantec is only catching around 45% of the attacks, no where was there a mention that they reduced the price of their services and software.  I mean, if they can only provide a 45% efficiency rate, shouldn’t they think about offering a discounted service price?

Okay, I am diverting a bit.

Now I am not trying to beat up Symantec.  This article along with many others and including the Heartbleed revelation, I find myself pondering more on the topics of Internet security and privacy.  In a world where everyone spills their guts in blogs like this and on mediums such as Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter what can or better yet, what should we expect to receive in the way of a Secure and Private travels of the internet?

I think what its coming down to is that the customer just doesn’t care as much as they used to .  Sure, everyone is concerned about Internet security and privacy, we get it.  But we also like convenience, free apps, free email and lots of free and convenient things online.  I mean could you imagine a world where you had to pay for a game so you could maintain your privacy?  I think not!

We will continue to click everything and anything, things forwarded us and those that entertain us via Stumbleupon, Facebook or just about everywhere else.  We will be traveling the internet highways and studying what the world has to offer and every once in awhile, sit down to think about Internet security and privacy.

I mean, really, really think about those words….if you please.   Internet security and privacy.

Lest we forget….

ATTENTION: Webhosts and ISP’s: What DMCA attorneys don’t want you to know!

When we filed the Federal lawsuit against the big pattern companies and Digital River, we learned some of the tactics of attorneys that spouted Digital Millennium Copyright Act claims, how they twist the letter of the law to their favor.DMCAhaha

One of the little known ways is going to be disclosed here.

The Federal government established a program for WebHosts  to register their designated Copyright Agent with the US Copyright office, per law.  Many do not know about this and therefore, many do not register.  The first thing a lawyer attempts to do when filing a DMCA complaint/lawsuit is to find leverage against the ISP hosting the website.  If it refuses to take down an alleged offending website and it has not registered as its designated copyright agent, they use this as leverage against them.  A sort of, do things my way or you will face charges for this approach…

Now in most communities in the world, using this leverage against someone is considered extortion, blackmail or other interesting terms.  In law, it’s research and helping enforce the laws on the books.

Anyway, the registration process to avoid this type of DMCA takedown complication is fairly simply.  Download the PDF Form and fill it out.  There is a fee to register your webhost/ISP, and it has been steadily increasing in cost each year so I anticipate that the fee will continue to rise.  Registering now won’t protect you from a lawsuit or claim, but it will take one leg out of a lawyer’s claims against you.  The less legs they have to stand on, the less briefs you will have to file.

If I can dig up the letter from the opposing attorney about this matter, I will post it here later.  That way you can clearly see the approach of attorneys with this agenda in mind.

Some of you may not want to register your host – while it currently isn’t an enforced offense, the penalties are not clear, it just gives an opposing counsel a stronger case.  And, they can use this information to go upline to your IP provider and more than likely, kill you IPs…
