Cross-posted from https://feddit.it/post/103189 Researchers at ETH Zurich have developd and successfully tested a new smartphone architecture called TEEtime. It mitigates the risk of censorship and avoids client-side scanning completely. The researchers hope their work leads to a change in the public perception of the smartphone ecosystem.

The move comes after a two months long women-led protest triggered by the arrest and death of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini for allegedly violating the country's strict female dress code.

"When white Western men kill women, they often claim they did so due to provocation or jealousy. When men in Asia or the Middle East commit such crimes, it is said to be about maintaining the 'honour' of the killer’s family and community."

Not all countries report data, but fir larger areas there is sophisticated research available, e.g., for China.

In Cina, where no official data is reported, 38 per cent of women experienced psychological violence by their own partners, reports reveal. In Indonesia, 49 per cent of girls under 14 have undergone some form of female genital mutilation, although it is outlawed.

Samsung reportedly knows about that for years, but has nevertheless been using the compromised key.

The sites sending the sensitive data were operated by major tax preparation services including H&R Block, TaxAct, and TaxSlayer.

Prosecution fails to report a single femicide conviction in the annual report, though. Consequently, many female victims of abuse fail to report this to the authorities due to a lack of confidence in the prosecution and a fear that filing a criminal complaint could trigger possibly lethal relations from their victimizers.

"What to do when your protector is the one who harms you? In other words, who protects you from the ‘protector’? Many countries in the Middle East have failed to address this inherent paradox."

Yes, but there’s one detail in the article I find weird if I may say so. It reads that the Biden administration “helped negotiate” a deal, but in fact they passed a bill. That’s a far tougher (indeed, it’s the toughest) level of reaching an agreement that has nothing to do with a negotiation.

A report by the Clean Energy Council, representing renewable energy companies and solar installers, has called for more local renewable energy production and manufacturing and a “certificate of origin” scheme to counter concerns about slave labour.

But Senators rejected a House-passed measure that would have added seven days of paid sick leave for more than 110,000 workers. AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler said the labor federation was “deeply disappointing that 43 senators sided with multibillion-dollar rail corporations to block desperately needed paid sick days.”

The latest police figures show that 10,818 rape cases were reported in the first quarter of 2022. South Africa has among the highest rape incidence in the world. How can gender-based violence in the country be reduced?

In Office 365 and Windows 10 lots of telemetry data is gathered and transmitted to Microsoft without Microsoft giving satisfying information about what is logged and transferred, the German Data Protection Conference says. The experts criticize that American authorities can access data stored in the European cloud without the German government having control over this.

Shanghai Data Exchange Goes International With First Branch In Singapore
With the mission of "building a data factor market and promoting data capitalization", the Chinese organization aims to collaborate with tech companies like Amazon AWS, Google, KPMG, Fraunhofer and others.

Prime minister says he raised Wikileaks co-founder’s case with US representatives recently and will continue to push for it to be ‘brought to a close’

Technicians from overnight repair shops access personal data and sometimes also copy data from their clients' devices, researchers in Canada find. Devices belonging to females were more likely to be snooped on, and snooping tended to seek more sensitive data, including both sexually revealing and non-sexual pictures, documents, and financial information.

U.S. Govt. Apps Bundled Code With Ties to Malware Developer in Russia
Mobile apps for the U.S. Army and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were integrating software that sends visitor data to a Russian company called Pushwoosh, Krebs-On-Security writes.

I hope there will be millions of similar instances one day, because this is part of being federated. This is a distributed network. I can join any community if I want, I can configure my own server if I want, and so can you and everyone else. If your community then scales faster than mine because your content is more relevant or better by any means, that’s fine with me. I can either stay small or learn from you and grow later, and so can all others, just as they themselves want it to be.

At least this is my opinion, this is why I am here.

It’s interesting that I can see the comment below written by @lisko when using the Jerboa client, but it’s not visible in Lemmur. Is it just me?

It appears they don’t report the numbers.

Officials [in India] have failed to track such attacks

Edit: There are more countries for which no reliable numbers exist, for example China and a lot of African countries.

Yes. I’d be happy if history teaches me wrong, but somehow I feel they won’t do it.

This is sadly true. Sometimes I feel it is even worse. People could use products like LibreOffice for a donation of their choice or even for free if they want to, but they rather pay for Microsoft 365. I don’t understand that.

It tells a lot about our global (!) human society that such a day is needed.

I didn’t understand it as against me, I just didn’t understand :-). All fine. The super rich footballer appears to feel understandably uneasy given that he is “controlled” as he says. The point is that he and his peers could say ‘no’ to this exactly because they are “super rich”, but they literally play to their sponsors in an industry that seems to have lost any human dignity.

Unfortunately his sentiment could be a foretaste of a society which we may be heading into. How will ( or already do?) citizens feel in a world of ubiquitous CCTVs and client-side scanning technologies where everything you do and say is constantly monitored and logged? What does this mean for the freedom of opinion and other human rights we in the so-called “western world” are so proud of?

Harsh reality finally coming into contact with super rich football players.

I don’t understand this. Where’s the context?

Yeah, it’s even said in the first sentence of the article. Should have read it more carefully before posting. I stand corrected.

I don’t know people with children in Germany, but you can read it here and many other sites. 🤔

Germany already did that a couple of years ago afaik. But, yes, let’s hope others will follow.
