ICANN to verify numbers and email address: verifiable profit for privacy advocates

icann.org/en/resources/registrars/raa/approved-with-specs-27jun13-en.htm

ICANN creates profitability for privacy advocates

to ensure successful verification

  • ICANN [policy] will advise you of imminent [registrar] call- or email
  • ICANN [policy] will advise you of [registrar] calling number[s]- or sender’s email address

FTW

(for the slow: you’ll know which numbers and CNAM, and email address to allow, rejecting all others)

icann halfassed sought public comment in narrow window neither did registrars during 18 months of negotiation contact customers

Do remember to

  • participate in  public icann discussions
  • participate in  icann calls for comment:
    • icann.org/en/news/public-comment/proposed-raa-22apr13-en.htm
    • with FOUR individual comments one might think ICANN didn’t want anyone to know about pending changes
      • do email your registrar to ask why they intentionally chose not to involve you in this hegemonic shift
    • those “great” americans at General Electric said: proxy and privacy services should be allowed only in “rare
      circumstances”
    • General Electric “requested mandatory suspension of domain names for the willful provision of false or inaccurate Whois information.”
    • General Electric’s particular brand of fascism linked in comment review was unavailable for direct review, web server reporting 404 for: forum.icann.org/lists/comments-proposed-raa-22apr13/pdfIW9ksOdAtH.pdf
      • fortunately I found a copy: forum.icann.org/lists/comments-proposed-raa-22apr13/msg00018.html ,
        • “Please contact” Sean Merrill, Ph 203 373 3328, fax 203 373-2181, “with any questions”
        • or Kathryn Barrett Park who penned the comments:  kathryn.park@ge.com , Ph 203-373-2655 , fax 203-373-2181
          • who notes the policy will “only serve to drive more Registered Name Holders to proxy and privacy services” therefore people must not be allowed to maintain privacy but be subjected to intense registrar scrutiny prior to domain activation
          • Kathryn wants the penalty be strengthened to mandatory domain suspension [hoping for immediate cancellation for those who mock her eremmm those who mock General Electric’s progressivism or other folly]
          • icann ocr renders her name as Kathryn Pork
            Kathryn Barrett Pork

DEMAND whois contacts to be able to use SIP URI instead of PSTN accessible values, DEMAND non-suspension if email communicant cannot  VERIFY they are a person via industry accepted Challenge Response system

Paying to receive spam/spin/calls is more imbecilic than sms texting or f*booking.

Free market enthusiasts and aspiring small business owners:

  • ICANN has unwittingly created a new market for whois data management:
    • processing whois email
    • processing whois calls
    • processing whois snail mail

in a way whois privacy scam-services have implied but never fulfilled let alone explicitly offered.

ICANN ought demand accredited registrars publish APIs for whois management as it’s to the public benefit (see first purple highlight above image)

  • presenting unique whois contact information for every inquirer
  • allowing whois privacy management firms to change underlying information based on firm’s privacy strategies
    • undesirable feckless caller volume
    • undesirable email volume
    • challenge response solved too quickly
    • DCC style patters across client base
      • publishing hashes licensed to other firms

Hopefully someone else will create such a service in the now accelerated arms race to personal privacy

Thank you, ICANN and the Registrar Whois Validation Working Group, for creating a new- and profitable use for 900 numbers and other toll calling!

With toll numbers people will likely “report” themselves ‘guilty’ of inaccuracy to generate revenue — delightful godaddy comeuppance:  icann.org/en/resources/compliance/complaints/whois/inaccuracy-form

when did youmail outsource mobile app dev to newpace.ca ?

Filed under: All My Mine Are Still Mine,CIO,DARPA — Sagacious Himself @ 4:38 pm
Tags: ,

youmail‘s voicemail app continues to fight the Sisyphean battle with android and to a lesser extent with ios.

It would seem Alex, youmail CEO, has abandoned first hand development entirely to newpace. yay?

To avoid teeth gnashing youmail installation on android

  1. for best results have already installed XPosed framework and XPrivacy
  2. DISABLE data
  3. install youmail app
  4. avoid all “options” to import contacts — some have tricky labels
  5. youmail will nonetheless install a contacts provider AND youmail sets it to auto sync contacts
  6. android settings: contacts sync: DISABLE youmail sync settings
  7. load youmail app.  IFF still possible in current iteration youmail app settings: disable contact sync.  Newer iterations might complain about lack of internets.
  8. remember, handset data is still DISABLED.  To be sure employ Tasker, Llama, or similar to check for data re-enable then DISABLE.  Leave macro active to be SURE data is DISABLED
  9. Generously apply wishful thinking and enable data, login to youmail app, check sync is still disabled and check android sync settings for youmail contacts provider
  10. Be leery of “updates” which might re-enable inane defaults
  11. IFF your android version allows you can remove a sync member after disabling it — then the youmail app will cease to function until you add back the provider.
  12. NO ESCAPE… unless you have XPrivacy for XPosed framework installed

IF all went according to YOUR WILL for YOUR DEVICE and YOUR DATA youmail will not have flooded any of YOUR contact databases (local or remote) will hundreds or THOUSANDS of “contacts” generated from missed calls or people you simply don’t want to know or have as contacts.

Otherwise your contacts database is superbly foobared.  Hand phone to I.T. or assistant to resolve.  Or suffer endless tedium yourself first hand.

Thanks youmail?

Should not the default be NOT to sync?  yes!

Paying youmail to torture youself is ludicrous but this is the state of the youmail app well since version 2 late betas.

“best” it guys (or mediocre business guys) better youmail is an excellent alternative but only an option for some:

betteryoumail refuses some buyers

For those who may use google market consider the business naive BetterYoumail.  They refuse to be bothered accepting payments via paypal.  Their software “protection” is trivial at best.  Hiding away in the google market head-in-sand style is unbusinessy!

The market segment youmail deems an island unto themselves now sees compeAlex Quilici youmail ceo to blame for abuse of customerstition for human assisted voice transcription not the least of which are offerings from anveo.com .

perhaps a few whip crackling emails to domain:youmail.com user:freddy, VP of development, or domain:youmail.com user:aquilici , youmail CEO, Alex Quilici (left)?

Paid youmail service (with purchased transcription) does not live up to the hype for [business] users with more than one number per device.

.

I have previously strongly endorsed PDroid framework.  For similar reasons I now endorse the XPosed framework also for android.  It is easily extensible.  To that also install XPrivacy

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2320783

XPrivacy through XPosed allows both spoofing data and returning null for less trusted apps which includes those poorly designed, or as I do default to ZERO SHARE.

wp cross domain content privacy breach

Filed under: AYBABTG — Sagacious Himself @ 4:43 pm

requiring google maps JS to enable editing fields on newly created post?  That’s a tad abusive.  Whatever JS you need to enable post creation/editing should ONLY reside within WP owned domains.

These ‘free’ services merely better enable cross-domain tracking of users.

suggested:

for third party hosted bits like fonts.google, google api, yahoo api  CACHE THEM LOCALLY.  Update your cache when remotes bit changes.

fonts.google.cache.wp.com
*.googleapis.cache.wp.com
*.yahooapis.cache.wp.com

That is IFF you value user security?

bypass youtube blocking filters with googleapis or how to view ONLY video content on youtube

Filed under: All Your Base,circumvention,DARPA — Sagacious Himself @ 2:29 pm

While tinkering with WN.com to play a slideshow about Raspberry Pi cases

k1 http://editor.wn.com/save_playlist/142103499

x4 Observe the following creative use of googleapis domain to circumvent DNS interweb filtration.  Alternatively this is a fantastic way to receive ONLY video content from youtube.

http://youtube.googleapis.com/v/-OQa3l4J0Z8

in lieu of

youtube.com/watch?v=-OQa3l4J0Z8

yup, merely insert “.googleapis” between “youtube” and “.com”

almost no thinking required (unfortunately slightly more complicated than mashing buttons on a mouse)

to avoid having to type altogether simply REMOVE “watch?”, copy “/” to clipboard, highlight “=” and paste in the “/”

youtube.com/watch?v=Y499d7bSBt8

youtube.com/v/Y499d7bSBt8

^ however that’ll likely trip the filter, but this also EASILY bypasses youtube age check

Filed under: AYBABTG — Sagacious Himself @ 12:05 pm

http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0263.html

Recycling is a key to energy reduction. Therefore, ECO-XMPP® clients SHOULD actively discourage users from generating new messages. ECO-XMPP® servers MAY keep a history of interesting messages that they can substitute for the mindless drivel generated by the typical IM user (cf. Instant Messaging Intelligence Quotient (IM IQ) [3]), or even refuse to deliver such messages to the intended recipient.
This specification is designed to meet the following requirements:

  1. Save the planet.
  2. Love your mother. [1]
  3. Reduce, reuse, recycle.
  4. Earth first, humans second, and computers a very distant third.

 

For the Earth: live in the dark, the cold, be hungry, be lonely, and most importantly be afraid then die horribly.

If you love the Earth choose ritual suicide!

BS from the H+ camp

Filed under: BULLSHIT,social engineering — Sagacious Himself @ 6:16 pm

quote from their ever so delightful “futurist” magazine

Mental self-defense is also necessary. Although not subject to direct physical harm like the body, viruses propagate through the mind in much the same way as they do through the body. Although many of these viruses are beneficial- cooperation, freedom, rule of law, democracy — many of them are actively harmful. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ad infinitum separate us from those who may otherwise have offered us valuable tools in our struggle for survival- even if we don’t personally engage in those behaviors ourselves. Although they are not physical, ideas have very real effects in our daily lives. It behooves us to study which ideas promote survival, individually and collectively, and which ideas prevent our survival, and act accordingly.

JD5000 would be aghast! I miss ComputerCops (CastleCops)

Privacy rape enabled by default?  That is soo unacceptable we need a whole new word to escape understatement.

Fortunately AdBlock Plus continues to be useful for content liberation research.  Still no stand alone XUL loopback proxy?

The tide in the android adblocking game is shifting in favor of privacy.

More elaborate local net filtering it is!  Oh the joy.  After epiphany I shall have some time to tinker.

“blocking ads harms free content”

really?  That tired argument.  It is obviously NOT free if the cost is privacy rape.  I HATE the promotion of android applications under the banner of free and the backhanded slap with adware flavor of malware.  Editing the APK is generally as trivial as blocking net connections.  A little more esoteric to deprive apps of reliable network state information.   The Spirit of Mozilla applied to android..

 

Blocking ads does not harm ANY free content or free software.  Blocking ads prevents one from being victimized by the heinously irrational defective business model syndrome.

“Respect my privacy” 

is the second highest concern to the allow unobtrusive ads model.  Google privacy rape?  Ring any bells?  Take a few moments (or hours if you’re a bit slow) to consider how google profits. How does allowing google ads respect privacy?  (hint: it doesn’t)

Now I’ll get to produce a PDF flyer for distribution to “everyone” how to reclaim the privacy AdBlock Plus supposedly provides.  oh goodie!  Or maybe I’ll get to repackage the extension and distribute it.  Yes, license complaints.  How’d that work out for zottmann?

Allowed adp comment with less eloquent objection but interesting malware analogy.  This is exactly what google android market does: allow “acceptable” malware.

selling != not-selling

If it is free there is no cost.

If there is a cost it is not free.

Yes, Johnny, words have particular meaning. Profound umbrige is taken against abuse of “free” as it is libelous against the thousands of f/OSS developers.

Giving away product and whining that no one purchased it?  What is your definition for insanity?

Don’t want your content in the public sphere?  Don’t place your content in the public sphere!  How challenging is this?  (genius not required)

Do Not track FARCE

until the evils of fine grained Geo IP Location are addressed one would be equally well served creating a do not track post-it note and affixing it to one’s monitor in the hopes of compliance. ISPs need offer privacy conscious users the option to have an IP address issued from a pool NOT related to where one resides/works/exists while surfing.

PDroid, adds awesome spoofing POWER to android privacy permissions management

edit 2014:  still good XPrivacy Pro [license supports crowdsourced knowledge], but also evolving quickly from the developer of PDroid 2.0 (not svyat) is DonkeyGuard (CollegeDev | github).  DO absolutely combine  AFwall+ firewall  [in whitelist mode] with LightningWall, and UnbelovedHosts, AND BootManager.  To that end do also donate to defim for the combo license: DefimDonator  [$14 is well worth it] — important: make a note of the name in which you want the license issued. LightningWall does not appear to have a whitelist mode starting from everything blocked, but can function independent of your iptables manager (AFwall+).

 

DonkeyGuard android privacy enforcement logo

(DonkeyGuard requires CydiaFramework… seems to be abandoning XposedFramework in favor, but uses both now)

DonkeyGuard defaults to ultimate privacy

DonkeyGuard has a better UI style than XPrivacy Pro

DonkeyGuard better interface design than XPrivacy sterile checkbox columns

edit 2013:  better is XPrivacy extension of XPosed framework for android.  zero malware market access needed; download only via XDA forums or soon *hub for free OpenSource possibly F-droid.org “You can use an XPrivacy Pro license for all the devices you personally own.”

picks up where LBE Privacy Guard leaves off… they play well together.  However PDroid claims no need of background service.. still requires root. It requires root to boot into CWM to apply the patch, but does not require root to run the management app.

.

PDroid allows blocking access for any installed application to the following data separately:

  • Device ID (IMEI/MEID/ESN)
  • Subscriber ID (IMSI)
  • SIM serial (ICCID)
  • Phone and mailbox number
  • Incoming call number
  • Outgoing call number
  • GPS location
  • Network location
  • List of accounts (including your google e-mail address)
  • Account auth tokens
  • Contacts
  • Call logs
  • Calendar
  • SMS
  • MMS
  • Browser bookmarks and history
  • System logs
  • SIM info (operator, country)
  • Network info (operator, country)

For device ID, phone and mailbox number, SIM serial, subscriber ID and device location it also allows supplying custom or random values.

English LBE Security Master for android now available (outside market) formerly LBE Privacy Guard

edit 2014:  XPrivacy Pro is still the most mature solution.  Another XPosed Framework plug-in is worth observing in development: DonkeyGuard — as it will allow user choice spoofing of requested data.  Also consider installing:  UnbelovedHosts and many other defim plug-ins, LuckyPatcher (remove adware only), Llama (or Tasker), LightFlow (or Xposed led options).  [I do neither encourage- nor condone piracy].   “But my android device… selinux|bootloader”… yeah it’s time to consider buying out of contract, too, for user-liberty (oppo [no cdma]).

 

edit 2013: better yet:  XPrivacy extension of XPosed framework for android

 

edit: a MUCH better, more elegant solution is the PDroid patch

.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1357056

Ask your ROM builder to bake-in PDroid.  There are PDroid aditions and versions for ICS.  It will likely be ported to EVERY subsequent versison of android.

 

MY hardware, MY data: MY terms.

 

If you had been in contact with LBE developers prior to this release you should have received notification directly from LBE. 😉

English LBE Privacy Guard has received MUCH much more than a face lift.

Download English LBE Security Master [lite]

Version mismatch?  English LBE Security Master lite is version 2.0.x whereas Chinese LBE Security Master is version 2.1.x

Hopefully LBE has the wisdom to sell the full version outside the market, also.  Secure information shared with google [stored on google] is NOT secure.

.

There is an rom alternative to LBE Security Master [lite] by WhisperCore:

http://whispersys.com/permissions.html

WhisperCore provides selective persmissions in a way that doesn’t take apps by surprise. Instead of denying access to resources, each permission revoked by a user creates a “private resource” for that application. So if an application requests the phone’s unique identifier, it will still get an identifier, but it will be a privacy-protected identifier generated specifically for that application. A different application with the same revoked permission would get a separate identifier, and an application without the revoked permission would get the real phone identifier.

Unfortunately WhisperSystem’s WhisperCore  does not support ALL android phones like LBE.

.

Another alternative to LBE Security Master LITE is pffmod

http://code.google.com/p/pffmod/

.

Ultimate permissions management, spoof ID / fake data, is possible with cyanogenmod

http://review.cyanogenmod.com/#change,5677

Apply a little peer pressure to effect a change in favor of the hardware/data owners!

Will the death of Steve retard apple’s move towards openness?

soon?

api.ocean.corp.pinger.com

their new client touts PUSH

but will their ads be as nefarious as version 1.4.x?  The ad engine attempts to leverage a local install of google maps to extract physical location when access to the GPS hardware is not an option.  why??  bits to collect GPS location if available otherwise networklocation.  why?

I miss Fiddler2.

should we really entrust communications to a company steered by a socialist?

social “justice” promotion

foiling baseless debt collection calls

Filed under: social engineering,voip — Sagacious Himself @ 11:10 am

This article ought be applied only to those situations where one does not-actually owe the claimed debt.  Verizon creative-billing has generated a few irritating collections encounters.

basic rules: http://caveatemptorblog.com/debt-collection-cheatsheet/

Debt collectors MUST

* show true callerid information
* honestly identify themselves when called party inquires
* cease calling you/writing you after you instruct them they may only communicate with your attorney (lawyer).  you must provide contact information
* “provide the nature of their business” when you inquire by phone.
** you are not required to identify yourself to obtain this information from them

Debt collectors may NOT

* impersonate another when contacting either you, or someone they believe might know how to contact you
* use callerid_number that you cannot call to reach them
* use callerid_name that obscures their identity

When calling a debt collector it is PRUDENT to:

* RECORD the conversation

while it might be illegal in your state to record the call without consent, do so anyway.  the conversation might then be “inadmissable” as evidence in court.  “oh noes”.

Notify them at the start of the call that you are recording them (if they object courteously inform them you do not care and these are your terms to communicate with them about the alleged debt, or inform them that requires manager approval)

My voip provider allows me to record outgoing calls by first dialing a code:   code + number.   My provider also has a feature to record all/some incoming calls.

* keep copious written notes

insist on the full name, employee number, and phone number of whomever.  if they refuse inform them these are your terms and terminate the call.  Without accountability you will suffer phone run around.

* provide them as LITTLE information as possible

Remember any customer service call where the agent simply repeated one or more phrases?  You, too, can control the conversation by providing no new information no matter how many ways the question is phrased to you.

they called you.  they likely provided an account number or reference number.  you mission is to collect information about the reference number NOT to provide them information.  provide nothing, request everything.

colxn: “This call is for Miss Smith regarding reference XTR-14m3. please call 800-142-8686”

call them back via SIP free tollfree termination

you: “I received a call from this numbah.  What is the nature of your business, and what is your physical location.”

provide nothing until these two are ascertained.  optionally make allusion to having a reference number for compliance motivation.

you: “I am calling in regards to reference XTR-l4m3.  Explain your claim”

provide nothing other than: the reference number, the time you were called, and a verbatim quote from the message.  repeat your inquiry.  Pretend you are a mouth breather in verizon customer service.  do NOT vary your responses: repeat yourself often.

* retain an attorney (lawyer)

direct debt collector to attorney.  they MAY NOT contact you directly from this point forward.  they MUST only communicate with your attorney.

* contact EVERYONE you have ever listed as an “emergency contact” on any form — especially medical (new doctor/patient)

advise/remind them NOT to volunteer information about you in writing- or over the phone.  this should be super-obvious already, but “social” networking sites seem to sap IQs.

* DISCONTINUE providing “alternate contacts” or “emergency” information on forms.   It is ONLY used for debt collection

If the bunker nazi (front office clerk) at a medical facility “requires” the form be “completed”

** draw a line through the boxes, or
** put your own IDENTICAL information in the boxes, or
** fabricate a person:  Uncle John Smith, 202-167-8080  (fourth digit always “1” makes the number invalid).  419eater.com rules apply.  do not suck the innocent into the fabrication.

* buy yourself a forwarding number to use on medical forms, new account forms, or anywhere you would enter your home/mobile/office number.

If you start receiving irritating calls buy another forwarding number, cancel the prior number, and only inform those people with whom YOU WANT to communicate the new number… ideally next time YOU interact with those people in person.

 

* withhold your callerid

not possible with mere star-code prefix dialing.  toll free DID have ANI magic.  be wary of their non-tollfree DID, too

I use SIP “free tollfree termination”

www.voip-info.org/wiki/view/Toll+Free+Termination+Provider

* if not outright ditching their calls consider routing them through a hellish IVR… IVR tarpitting

both voxeo and plum have excellent, free tools for VISUALLY designing an IVR.  disable DTMF (touch tone) options, requiring ASR (speech recognition).  “accidentally” misspell the keywords for ASR

 

optionally

* out them on a new-blog

especially beneficial for “debts” you do not owe.

* post the phone call recordings

be sure to edit out YOUR personal (financial) information

It must be nice to wield  unlimited money.  Unlimited?  Yes, fiat money.  Create fiat money to lend, collect actual money as profit.  spread the loss around: more profit.  Only mere citizens lose.

▼ privacy HYPOCRISY agenda expanded by google: vigorously owning you AND yours with more crosslinked “free” products to self-digitize your soul [google privacy RAPE agenda]

Why should google settle to mine your self-digitized soul across “free” google properties?  Would it not be better to stitch products together into a rape frenzy kit for tighter behavioral data mining?

Absolutely.  facebook will be so jealous

Better feed your “friends” and less proximate social relations to the google soul chipper with plus.  If you do not value your own privacy or dignity why would you value that of another?

Now with Google Rape All Plus Enticements (Google RAPE) you can help google form an even more inappropriate intimacy with your life via their shiny “free” offering.

Remember, naysayer, google’s primary function is selling ads, which necessitates their secondary function: data mining.  Does google’s notion of “not evil” seem nearly indistinguishable from evil yet to you?

If company xxx did this to people there would be much hue and cry.  Why is it fanboi rabidly embraced willingly??

edit: with title “privacy rape agenda..” google removed the backlink from their blog.  “Open” Society sensitive nerve?

“do no evil” — which sounds like witchcraft, itself a spinoff of satanism like wicca

is NOT the same as:

‘do good’
