hooray! Beem and GibberBot have been OTR capable for a while, Xabber has been multi-account but not OTR capable, but now GibberBot seems to be more capable than Beem and Xabber combined!

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 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

XPrivacy Pro summary UI

 

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.

yahoo privacy policy: viewing equals consent? adblocking only opt out option?

Filed under: AdNoyances,open source,privacy — Sagacious Himself @ 9:34 pm

I see… or rather opt not to see via adblocking [AdAway]

Yahoo! does not provide any personal information to the advertiser when you interact with or view a targeted ad. However, by interacting with or viewing an ad you are consenting to the possibility that the advertiser will make the assumption that you meet the targeting criteria used to display the ad.

new English version of LBE Privacy Guard available Halloween? Renamed to LBE Security Master

Filed under: AdNoyances,android,circumvention,Justice,privacy — Sagacious Himself @ 1:49 pm
Tags: , , ,

edit 2014:  better alternatives to LBE

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.

English LBE Security Master lite from LBE now available

————————————

I have been using the new LBE Security Master in Chinese.  With the exception of a few features all the functionality can be intuited based on prior app experience.

[insert: LBE PG backgrounder]

New to this version is a name change.  This better than fantastic app has been dubbed LBE Security Master.  The Guard icon is a dial whereas the Master icon is a shield.  Go figure.

While denial of permissions is an option I much prefer playing integrity challenged applications at their own game: data poisoning.

I had been working on a screen shot based tutorial but it seems that will be of little value for the Chinese-only upgrade as the English version of LBE Security Master (version 2.1.x) will be available Halloween or possibly All Souls Day.  Chinese APK.

I am hoping in addition to unique id spoofing [UDID] LBE Privacy Guard data services will also be able to spoof MAC addresses and spoof non-radio IMEI/MEID.

New must-have features include:

  • new permissions visualization,
  • bandwidth monitoring per app (a starred feature req of DroidWall)
  • battery preservation,
  • communication filtering [some twits label this sms firewall]
  • fractional functionality for non-root users

Missing is finer grained control of permissions.   Some permissions such as send SMS, receive SMS are grouped into one tickbox.  GPS location and network location are deemed one permission.   ‘Get TASKS’, a permission abused by google maps, seems to be MIA as well.

The new Chinese version of LBE Privacy Guard is fully functional under Cyanogenmod 7: good news for users of non-stable releases of CM7 who are unable to use the current English version. While garbage collection frequency has been a blight for some using cm4dx the dev cm4dx-gb has almost entirely addressed the problem; LBE Security Master can increase garbage collection frequency at user request.

Keep an eye on the LBE Security Master change log and LBE dev blog for more speculation fodder.  Though big fans of QQ they are not big on XMPP.

Level – 3 “L” stands for LIGHT visionary state. Closed-eye visuals (clear imagery with eyes closed: fractal patterns, vine-like and geometric patterns, visions of objects and designs). The imagery is often two dimensional. If open-eyed visual effects occur, these are usually vague and fleeting. At this level, phenomena similar to the hypnagogic phenomena that some people experience at sleep onset occur. At this level, visions are experienced as “eye candy” but are not confused with reality.

one is NOT entitled to free medical services — slavery is bad

Filed under: BULLSHIT,category euthanized,Healthy,Liberty,Righteous Rage,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 8:10 am

“Should everyone have free health care?”

Certainly not! Medical service, like having a maid service or owning a car, is a PRIVILEGE and NOT a right. One, however, is individually obligated to care for one’s own health. But one cannot enslave others performing this service nor can one expect others to perform this service without compensating them.

Socialist health care is akin to promoting slavery.

14.1.(3). An angel of Satan [2 Cor. 12:7], which is the spirit of fornication, is given to some

foul thoughts and very vivid images, which sometimes is a pain worse than death for them.

woefully misinformed about NSA practices

Filed under: category euthanized,Liberty — Sagacious Himself @ 6:59 am

umm most of Ecshalon’s observations of US citizens are performed from the EU under US control.. this is how privacy concerns are averted.  And the US perfoms the same tat for UK

this guy has an interested take on the assumption there isn’t a EU equivalent:

Had a European government, instead of the Bush administration, created
the NSA’s call database, would that government be in violation of
European privacy law? I think so, for the reasons I explore below.

Perhaps the UK spy ward hasn’t consumed the EU yet.. but his article CERTAINLY doesn’t apply to UK

Opus Dei and corporal mortification

Filed under: category euthanized,Knowledge,Liberty,Wisdom — Sagacious Himself @ 10:08 pm

The Da Vinci Code makes it appear that Opus Dei members practice
bloody mortifications. In fact, though history indicates that some
Catholic saints have done so, Opus Dei members do not do this.

The Catholic Church advises people to practice mortification. The
mystery of Jesus Christ’s Passion shows that voluntary sacrifice
has a transcendent value and can bring spiritual benefits to others.
Voluntary sacrifice also brings personal spiritual benefits, enabling
one to resist the inclination to sin. For these reasons, the Church
prescribes fasting on certain days and recommends that the faithful
practice other sorts of mortification as well. Mortification is by no
means the centerpiece of the Christian life, but nobody can grow closer
to God without it: “There is no holiness without renunciation and
spiritual battle” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, n. 2015).

In the area of mortification, Opus Dei emphasizes small sacrifices
rather than extraordinary ones, in keeping with its spirit of
integrating faith with secular life. For example, Opus Dei members try
to make small sacrifices such as persevering at their work when tired,
occasionally passing up some small pleasure, or giving help to those in
need.

Some Opus Dei members also make limited use of the cilice and
discipline, types of mortification that have always had a place in the
Catholic tradition because of their symbolic reference to
Christ’s Passion. Many well-known figures in Catholic history
have used the cilice or discipline, such as St. Francis, St.
Thomas More, St. Padre Pio and Blessed Mother
Teresa.  The Church teaches that people should take
reasonable care of their physical health, and anyone with experience in
this matter knows that these practices do not injure one’s health
in any way. The Da Vinci Code’s
description of the cilice and discipline is greatly exaggerated and
distorted: it is simply not possible to injure oneself with them
as the book and film depict. 

Additional explanation from leading Catholic sources regarding Opus Dei and corporal mortification.
