Anyone who is half way smart has a hammer next to their computer in case of FBI nocking at the door. Only full proof method.

Well, the sledge-hammer method is a little extreme. If you're handy with wiring and simple switches, you can fairly easily construct an electro-magnet field generator and mount it right next to your hard-drive rack.

Then, when the MIBs come calling, you simply flip your dead-man's switch, instantly erasing all your hard-drives, but without destroying your hardware.

If you're not comfortable with building magnetic coils, you can also purchase a handy-dandy 10-lb magnet online and keep it within easy reach — just pick it up and pass it by your computer for instant flatline.

Ahem.... F the RIAA.

Now that I got that out of my system. The RIAA needs to be put in it's place.

Do not buy music from any artist that are on labels that RIAA members.

Write/email/fax/tell your favorite bands that you will not go to concerts, purchase merchandise or ever buy a cd/dvd/dowload of theirs as long as they align themselves with these theiving bastards.

We have the power. We need to collectively grow a pair and use that power.

I feel better now.

All I have to say is good luck getting at mirc, torrents, rapidshare and megaupload. Sure... install spyware (like I wont notice) and remove my music that I've either bought or ripped from something i already own... but really is that what the goal is? No, it's to stop the spread and that just happens to deal with uploaders; trust me if there's space, it will be uploaded.

P.S. I've never done anything illegal in my life especially download music or movies (just disgusting
)

may be so.. but I'd really like to see them try and put it on my computer, or enforce any of this crap.


The RIAA request is a different issue, but I read this article claiming that Microsoft already disclosed something about a government backdoor installed on Windows operating systems:

Microsoft Discloses Government Backdoor on Windows Operating Systems

Apparently this is what Microsoft supposedly said:


“Although Microsoft is reluctant to give out details on its botnet buster — the company said that even revealing its name could give cyber criminals a clue on how to thwart it”

According to an article on PC World: “The software vendor is giving law enforcers access to a special tool that keeps tabs on botnets, using data compiled from the 450 million computer users who have installed the Malicious Software Removal tool that ships with Windows.”


Now that article seems to think that the government backdoor is in the Malicious Software Removal tool that ships with Windows, but it's not clear to me where the backdoor actually is, other than somewhere within windows. Can any of the techies here shed any light on this?

So if there's already a backdoor built into windows for the government, maybe RIAA knows this and just wants to piggyback on the existing backdoor for PC access?

Let's see them remotely delete the contents of my 500 GB external hard drive.

Second line for an obnoxious smile.

The RIAA completely sucks

I can tell you from personal experience that they will threaten...but if you fight back, they give up and move on to someone else

it won't be long until they try to make it illegal to remember any copyrighted songs


suck it RIAA

and a big kudos to our friends at the www.eff.org...

linux has holes yes, but since its open source developers/hackers could just grab the code and re-write it so it blocks the exploit or the spyware, and the fact that its not used as widely as windows also adds extra security, because why would someone waste alot of time trying to hack a linux machine when they can hack thousands of windows machines easily in the same time frame

Ahh that old apple, Its easy to prevent this, just dont install the Malicious software Removal Tool, it doesnt ship installed on windows out of the box, but they do try to sneak it in through windows update, so if you just look at what updates you are installing instead of just clicking download/install you should be right

They're messing with the wrong group of people.

If you are from the RIAA, please stop this nonsense, lest you wish to invoke the wrath of the almighty banhammer.

As a citizen on a nation that is not subject to American influence or civil law, I am glad to be free of such things. I cannot be sued, nor can I be extradited, nor can the RIAA invade my personal computer with their spyware. However, even this knowledge of freedom from their influence does little to hide the pain I feel for the people of the United States who may be subject to such abrupt invasion of privacy. Know that I am sorry for what you must go through at the hands of the corporate bodies that govern your music industry, and perhaps it is time that the RIAA became extinct.

If they instigate this then i give them maybe a day before every hacker in the world starts causing them trouble. Get ready for your email to be filled with porn and viagra spam (more than usual i mean), get ready for your internal networks to be screwed over, rampant viruses, disclosure of emloyee details and being harrassed at home. Lol hackers have had peoples houses surrounded by armed police with a few phone calls and some creative thinking.

Good luck if you work for the RIAA, oh and just you wait until 4chan heres about this one.

Never upset 4chan.

Forgive me, but 4chan are not hackers but rather, as the phrase goes, 'script kiddies'. And the subject on armed police was not hacking, but simply calling them and saying the person was dangerous, which anyone can do. RIAA would put themselves in more danger by trying to place spyware into foreign government and military computers who may see it as an act of war.

Indeed, the issue on hacking is curious, and I cannot see any reason why it would not be justified to place malicious spyware on the RIAA computers if they do so to yours.

Some of them are script kiddies but a lot are hackers and if you knew the history of 4chan you would understand that. The armed police thing was nothing to do with calling them and saying they're dangerous, ick you know nothing of hacking history do you. 4chan may contain some stupid wannabees but not all of them are clueless. I used to hate the place but once you crawl through the swamp of muck there is the odd gem on there.

I agree with your sentiment. TrueCrypt is good for encrypting flash drives or hard drives of laptops. Loss or theft makes them useless. Unfortunately, as the law stands, you are required to provide police or other authorities with the pass phrase. Refusal can lead to extended imprisonment.


Wot like the laws that lets politicains rob us blind and the law does nothing.

As a human you have a duty to fight back and we all need to pay a price along the way and do remember these laws are not made by the people.

Giving in to every threat in a play ground will ensure you get your face smashed in and the same is true with life except it becomes financial.

Who are they going to jail if we all break the law and are force to encrypt data to stop our goverment spying on us ?

it's the politicians that should be concerned and not the general public for it is they that need to be held to account and if you want to know how far these thugs will go then check out the Hollie Greig story.

I run a Tor server so others may have internet freedom and if the police want to knock my door about it then i'll buy more bandwidth and do it all the more.

Trouble is 60% of all new laptops have a ET call home program built into the bios so even if you take a hammer to your hard drive and run sco unix you are still being watched and beleive it or not but even printers are printing a hidden bit pattern on each page so they can watch you.

Yeah i know it sounds like science fiction but do a google and let me know if you think i'm wrong.

MAC Address + IP + HTTP was never about protecting uses and was allways about tracking users and 1984 with Google/EBAY/YouTube being the bigest players trying to fight it out with MS.




I knew laser printers had been 'watermarking' for years now but the BIOS is new to me.

There must be a way to block BIOS call-home programs. Wouldn't packet inspection catch this unless it's encrypted? I simply do not know enough about it to say but just posing the question.

Having said that, though, I remain firmly convinced that the only safe PC is one that is not turned on. Which of course was easier to live by in the old 300 - 56K modem days.

Have you noticed that Win7 64-bit no longer requires patch KB971033 to be installed by default? (at least that was my experience on Friday night installing on another one of my PC's) Perhaps TPTB & MS are happy to have hacked OS's out there just so long as the tracking is not nixed in the process.

Windows XP had a built in security flaw allowing backdoors to run of DCOM due to this RPC vulnerability. You may have seen it in your process list when XP was new, then hackers exploited it, exposed it and Microsoft HAD to release a fix for it because it was discovered.

If you have to go Windows, go XP style (tweaked), all these new versions are fails. Personally I only use Windows for games etc.
