See your identity pieced together from stolen data

quote [ "Companies are trying to use the sheer scale and profitability of their shady data practices to shield them from the law."

And with Experian disclosing a breach in 2015 and then another in 2020, it's clear these firms are attractive targets for cybercrime.

In fact, one of the largest breaches collated by Have I Been Pwned has also been traced back to a "likely" customer of data-enrichment company People Data Labs. ]

HaveIBeenPwned.com is around for a while now. I didn't know that most of the breaches orginated at data vendors, though.

Tesla Employees Have Been Meme-ing Your Private Car Videos

quote [ What kind of videos would employees share? Former staffers remember stuff like ?dogs, interesting cars, and clips of people recorded by Tesla cameras tripping and falling? all being big hits. In one popular video, the car?s owner?a man?approached the vehicle totally naked. In another instance, employees enthusiastically shared a video of a child on a bike getting hit by a car (the child and the bike ?flew? in opposite directions, former employees said). ]

It's probably been almost a decade, but I'd just like apologize for ever suggesting the existence of this company might be a positive thing.

Women Used the Rule of Law to Challenge Trumpism

quote [ In 1873, the U.S. Supreme Court decided that women had no constitutional right to practice law...in a constitutional democracy, enduring power lies in the people who step into the fight.. by the book?s conclusion, the narrative is complicated; chapters that bring us to the present day reveal a reluctant but palpable doubt as to whether American constitutional democracy will, in fact, ultimately empower women.. ]

A way of connecting dots, including anti-Muslim laws, anti semitism Charlottesville, misogyny Kavanaugh's confirmation attack on Christine Blasey, women's rights Supreme Court Dobbs (repeal of Row V Wade) to say dignity, equality, justice, law, truth and reason are merely abstract words.

Arizona Sets 8' Distance Limit On Recording Police Officers

quote [ House Bill 2319, sponsored by Rep. John Kavanagh,makes it illegal for anyonewithin 8 feet of law enforcement activity to record police. ]

Sounds like the original version of the bill was set for 15', but it was lowered. I am certain we will see this bill replicated in other states, and then the distance increased overtime.

As reported by Bleeping Computer, security researcher [?] ]
