Another 'massive security risk' found in Lenovo computers, company issues a patch

Lenovo seems to be having a bad year. It hasn’t been long since the largest PC vendor was caught shipping its laptops with "Superfish" adware, and now we’re learning about some new vulnerabilities found in its computers. But before you slam your fist on your computer desk in dismay, the good news is that Lenovo has the patch ready, and you can download it right away.

Security firm IOActive reports vulnerabilities in Lenovo’s system update file. In a report titled "Lenovo’s System Update Uses a Predictable Security Token", the firm notes (PDF) that these vulnerabilities could allow hackers to bypass validation checks, and replace legitimate Lenovo applications with malicious programs and allow hackers to remotely run programs.

World-Changing Ideas Summit 2014: Bruce Schneier

We now live in one world, one network, one technology, says Bruce Schneier, security technologist and chief technology officer of Co3 Systems, which means we can’t create technological systems that distinguishes legality or morality. In other words, we need to choose between security and surveillance: we can only build technologies that are secure for all users, or are vulnerable to all attackers.

Google Can't Ignore The Android Update Problem Any Longer

This update "system," if you can call it that, ends up leaving the vast majority of Android users with security holes in their phones and without the ability to experience new features until they buy new phones (which is sadly a kind of planned obsolescence as well). This can't be an acceptable state of affairs for Google, and it shouldn't be. Google already has a great six-week update system for Chromebooks, and it's time to have Android catch up to that, as well.

UN Essentially Runs US Refugee Program - Resettling People to US Towns Unequipped to Deal With It

Here's how our government works:
1) Exploit third world countries and install US-backed dictators to secure US corporations' profits
2) Start wars against third world countries whose leadership won't comply with US/Zionist/corporate demands, creating massive upheaval amongst their populations, and lining the pockets of "defense" contractors
3) Against the wishes of just about all of the local Americans, allows the UN and left-wing Christian and Jewish "charities" to resettle the refugees created by US/Zionist foreign policy, thereby dividing the population to make it easier to enslave, and does it all with YOUR tax money!

As a result, Israel feels more secure and powerful, US corporations get more workers to push down wages and increase their profits, and the US population squabbles amongst itself while the globalists tighten their grip.

NATO Attempt At 'Interim' Government in Syria Echoes Libya Model

By Brandon Turbeville

The immediate clamor from the Western mainstream press regarding the fall of Idlib to Western-backed al-Qaeda/ISIS forces revealed part of the NATO plan as much as it involved the simultaneous participation of a media campaign designed to weaken the morale of the Syrian people and present a sense of inevitability amongst Syrian and all other populations following the crisis that the Syrian government was on its way out.

Such media hysteria has been the norm in the West in regards to Syria. However, in terms of the recent media blitz over Idlib, the goal, which has been part of the NATO-Turkish plan since early on in the conflict was to enable the capture of a major Syrian city so as to provide a physical seat of what would then be presented as the “government in exile” in the form of an “interim” or “transitional” government...

May 06 12:27 Is Now Sharing Your DNA With the Police

Isn’t that twisted? You can’t even research your family’s genealogy without the government snooping your DNA. What’s worse, is that this is a total break with’s consent form. They promise not to share your DNA with anyone outside of the company, and yet they did it anyway. They didn’t even ask for a warrant.
