Australia’s parliament on Wednesday passed a strict new social media law that could fine tech companies, or even jail their executives, if they allow violent material to be posted on their sites or fail to remove it quickly enough after complaints are filed. An op-ed at Sky News on Thursday conceded that China might have had the right idea all along about censoring and controlling the Internet. Saluting China’s “Great Firewall” to justify Australia’s draconian new law is among the clearest examples to date of viral authoritarianism infecting the formerly free world. The great hope of the Internet is that it would spread liberal ideals through its uncontrollable geyser of information, but instead it has become more like a transmission system for authoritarian ideals into the Western world, its excesses cited as justification for increasingly heavy-handed speech controls.Australia’s “Sharing of Abhorrent Violent Material Bill” was hailed by … [Read more...] about Hayward: Viral Authoritarianism Spreads from China to Australia with New Censorship Law

Supported by ByCade Metz and Raymond Zhong Dec. 3, 2018 SAN FRANCISCO — The world’s leading technology companies, from Google to Alibaba in China, are racing to build the first quantum computer, a machine that would be far more powerful than today’s computers. This device could break the encryption that protects digital information, putting at risk everything from the billions of dollars spent on e-commerce to national secrets stored in government databases. An answer? Encryption that relies on the same concepts from the world of physics. Just as some scientists are working on quantum computers, others are working on quantum security techniques that could thwart the code-breaking abilities of these … [Read more...] about Race Is On to Protect Data From Next Leap in Computers.

A security expert working for a U.S. telecom company reportedly uncovered further evidence of Chinese spy chips hidden on computer motherboards, Bloomberg Businessweek reported Tuesday, less than a week since the outlet revealed a massive “hardware hack” discovered in a secretive U.S. government investigation. The major corporations named in the original report, Apple and Amazon.com, denied that a large number of servers they purchased from major computer supplier Supermicro were contaminated with backdoor security flaws inserted by Chinese military intelligence in the form of tiny extraneous chips. Supermicro also challenged the details of the report, which claimed up to 30 companies that purchased its products were affected, including government contractors.On Tuesday, Bloomberg News ran a new report that quoted a security expert named Yossi Appleboum, a veteran of Israeli military intelligence who is now the co-chief executive officer of consulting firm Sepio Systems in … [Read more...] about Report: Telecom Company Uncovers Further Evidence of Chinese Hardware Hack
