Alethea: I'm honestly not sure on disguising words. I've never seen anything like that so I assume it works.
Also we don't get any bonus and I don't think we get an incentive for finding anything good although it might be kind of nice if we did.
TheBeatlesWillSaveUs: To be honest with you I applied three times for this job. Well not this job specifically with this organization three times. The
first two times I passed the psych tests but no positions were opened and the third I passed and this was the only job open at the time. It wasn't
what I wanted at all.
reject: Look for jobs on the DHS section of jobs.gov
Qwenn: I think safety is always important online
LenGXV6: Sorry my iPhone has TERRIBLE video quality. It is a jailbreak unlock iPhone first generation. No matter how much light shows up the pure
brightness of the monitor seems to saturate everything around it.
That said I don't think we have much security in way of phones. We don't seem to be that secure either. They claim we are videotaped but we have
determined that isn't always the case. I expected a job like this in secrecy to have key cards or thumb readers or something on the doors but they
I guess the approach here is that by leaving things open we are basically not giving people a reason to just walk in. If you do though we have a front
desk and it seems like a regular "software development" company though.
Since I have an unlocked iPhone turning off all the radios in it was very easy. No wifi, or GSM radios turned on. I felt it was a risk but I know of
other people who have put phones in airplane mode at work so I felt pretty safe doing so to take a quick video but not safe enough to go much
Ex: Hello Ex
v01i0: I agree with you fully. This system seems like a waste of time and money. The people who really need to be caught aren't likely to just use
plain old words. I have yet to see anything outrageous on my terminal yet.
I suppose I could have made a program like that. I wish I had the skills
In all seriousness though I don't think its a massive conspiracy but I felt compelled to share what I do because I feel it is such a waste of time,
money, and I don't feel it necessary to be monitoring regular people when we should be investing time and money to really catching the bad people who
want to hurt us.
pegasi51: All PCs and for the important machines it appears we are running SLINUX which was created by a government research company. Steal some open
source stuff and "secure" it. Again I think we have more of an illusion of security than actual security. Your tax dollars hard at work.
Molan27: Haven't really heard anything. I do have a correction though apparently social networks are monitored. While nothing has shown up for me on
my terminal apparently some terminals are tasked with watching Twitter. I don't use Twitter so I don't know a lot about it. Maybe someone here
As far as posting location I'm going to stay mum on that. I feel the way you do. So much stuff online the likelyhood of being caught for me is low as
long as I don't do anything stupid like slip up and tell someone at work or do it from work or something like that.
Yes the government really does seem to think they will outright say it. Or they want to have this in place so when they make something up they can say
our new high tech systems caught it. I feel the real conspiracy here is that we are giving ourselves the allusion of safety and security by wasting
time and money.
Everwatcher33: It seems just having our phone in airplane mode is okay. I don't feel we have amazing security either though.
Qwenn: Thanks for the thoughts and being skeptical is always good. I'm skeptical what the real point of my job is at this point. I don't consider
myself to be overly smart but smart enough to see what I am doing doesn't really make a difference in my opinion.
More replies soon.
