In regards to Hacking and industry standards.
See my other post about Cell Phones or click the link to the right that says Legislation Ideas.
If you like these ideas please write to your Senator or Congressman or the President.
The gaming industry needs to be revamped.
Employees of these companies really should be in an office building somewhere. You cannot monitor these people from home.
The hackers that are stalking me are involved with Anonymous and are employees and they work from home. Good guys work outside and these hackers get to log in from home and wear pajamas all day.
Their access needs to be user specific access (privileges).
The Programmers don’t need to see what someone in Accounting can see. These ‘programmers’ (hacker employees) are using my son’s steam account to get my IP address.
Why can the employees see my IP address much less my personal information? They pulled out my and my kids accounts out of the blue and accused me of having duplicate accounts and the only thing in common in our accounts was our mailing address. Accusing someone of having duplicate accounts is apparently one of their favorite things to do.
How do your children pay for their own accounts and where do they live and if they can see where I live can they see my credit card information too?
Publicly traded companies could be treated differently.
Facebook and Sony are publicly traded companies. Sony owns the Playstation Network. If you have a PS3 or PS4, more than likely you used the Playstation Network. Steam has a connection to the Playstation Network it’s the computer component of it. You use a computer to play video games instead of the console.
We could set an industry standing in regards to their employees and their access to being in a building somewhere instead of working from home.
You cannot monitor the software they have installed on their computers when they work from home.
Hackers use computer software to hack like Metasploit and Backtrack5 or similar software. (Give me a break I’ve ill and my neurologist thinks I have MS)
Basically you know what I’m saying. If you work from home I can’t monitor you like I could if you worked from an office building.
They also need to be required to adopt random drug testing. I’ve seen these hackers reference drugs on the internet.
I don’t want someone doing drugs having access to my personal information.
We could fine companies that didn’t change their default passwords to their routers or other equipment if they request credit card information or Social Security numbers.
We need to educate companies and then they need to be held partly responsible. They need to keep our information secure. I’m sure they cost credit card companies millions of dollars in stolen credit card numbers and the theft caused or committed by the thief.
Do they write it off or do they prosecute credit card theft? I’m not sure but it cost someone money.
We need new standards involving laptop computers and webcams and microphones they need a hard wired switch that looses electricity or they need to quit making them built in.
You can’t even disable them they re-install because they are plugged into the mother board. There needs to be a switch on the outside of the computer or they need to be like a desktop computer and a usb device.
It needs to be a hardwired switch so you disrupt the flow of electricity to the device.
We also need software companies like Microsoft to make things like a microphone to have a default of being turned off instead of on.
On Windows computers the default with the microphone is on. (Read my post about microphone or type microphone into the search box on the right.
After I covered up my webcam with tape they could still hear me. They eavesdropped on my house for about six months.
Remote access is also on by default.
We need to protect our digital infrastructure and take ownership of it like a highway.
Anything from Electronic books to photographs may in some cases only exist digitally. We need to make sure these items are backed up and we need to prosecute hackers.
Who owns DNS servers?
Who owns cell phone towers?
Who maintains them and makes sure they aren’t hacked. Did you know you can build a cell phone tower for about 1500 dollars and put it in your house and intercept communications that way? I read an article about a security conference. There was even a show on the History Channel and a security expert was saying they could put one of these man made towers in the hotel across the street.
We need to take Cell Phones a lot more seriously. Every signal coming from them can be hacked.
We need to monitor IRC servers and VOIP communications
These hackers seem to be in charge of IRC servers. Where are these IRC servers located. Who owns these IRC servers?
How are hackers having hacker wars over IRC servers. These hackers may be in charge of that infrastructure. Cleverbot.com uses IRC.
Steam uses IRC and so does Facebook. It’s that little chatty thing like texting that you do over the internet. IRC is extremely dangerous.
These hackers can also use VOIP to talk to other players and hackers or employees over seas.
A Turkish Hacker hacked my website I think they gave him the password using VOIP.
It doesn’t show up anywhere like a phone call does.
Does anyone monitor Skype communications?
How can a Hacker hack something and brag about it on the internet?
If I bragged that I bombed a building on the internet, I would be arrested for it. How can they hack something and claim it?
Who monitors the internet?
Have you read about Anonymous on Wikipedia?
We need to pass something like what was proposed with PIPA to get after hackers
Webspace is leased. Domains are leased. You have to use a credit card to pay for them. Who’s in charge of credit card companies like Visa, Mastercard, AMEX or Discover? We are. America is. They are American Companies.
Our power grid is on the internet.
We don’t have meter readers anymore we have smart boxes. Have you heard of Stuxnet?
