Julian Assange: Google’s main focus is intelligence mining

The founder of the organization Wikileaks Julian Assange said in an interview with the BBC TV channel that Google is mainly engaged in the extraction of intelligence data.

Julian Assange: Google’s main focus is intelligence mining


“Google’s business model is intelligence mining. It brings the company 80% profit, ”ITAR-TASS quotes him.

He also noted that the company "collects information about people, assembles it, stores and classifies", and then "gets things to people to predict their interests and actions" and "sells the data, in most cases to advertisers, but also to others."

According to Assange, Google’s work is “almost identical to what the US National Security Agency (NSA) and the British Electronic Intelligence Service Headquarters (GCHQ-ShPS) do.”

According to the founder of Wikileaks, this corporation has serious marketing power.

“The playful logo of the company does not cause people to think that it is a big, bad American corporation, but in fact it has become so. It is now the most influential commercial organization in the world, ”he concluded.

In addition, Assange said that life in the embassy of Ecuador, where he has been for several years, creates "some difficulties."

"You can not meet with the sources. It is difficult to meet with the staff of my organization because of constant monitoring, ”he said.

        I think special services around the world use the Internet, and especially social networks, for these purposes.

            An article here today came out about the information security of Russia. It resonates well with this article. What a coincidence Z.Y. and how MI6 still didn’t get to Assange ... He’s like a bone in his throat. Probably right up to They are developing plans for an assault on the embassy. And Comrade Assange wanted to sneeze at the bourgeoisie.

        I have no doubt that all browsers in the world, Mozilla, Explorer, and Opera, collect and accumulate our personal information, since the entire array of servers is located mainly in the United States, and cross-cables of the Echelon, PRISM systems and which there are still tracking-collecting systems ... Another question is that they still cannot physically use these quintillion terabytes of information at the same time ... According to keywords, they go to housewives who buy a multicooker or wires for a house in a teleshop ... Just like a huge pantry, fish out information on a person who is still tortured worse than in the NKVD at one time ...

      You have an Android phone, Windows or Symbian, but maybe God forbid, let me ask you an apple? And there the tracking capability is already protected. Large figures, with the exception of DAM (iPhone) therefore prefer simple phones to non-gadgets.
      But I think if some kind of worker, Vasya Pupkin will use the gadget is not scary, but having access to classified information it is better to use a simple dialer.

        I use a simple dialer, that is, a "long-playing" Phillips xenium. Tablet, yes, on android, but it's only for books, games, movies! If Google wants to understand what kind of porn I prefer, I don't mind, let it know! laughing

    Social networks are also doing this, only Facebook, LiveJournal and VKontakte are doing this without hiding, in others it is more veiled. "Skype" is monitored by Swedish special services ... you can go on and on, but the conclusion is one - decide for yourself what needs to be shown and what should not be exposed. fellow

    Someone zanet about such an interesting fact.
    [quoteIn the 1960s, American intelligence managed to kidnap, or rather, temporarily borrow one of the main technological achievements of the USSR - an interplanetary station of the Luna series. "The kidnapping of this craft, done in such a way that the Soviets did not know about it, is one of the insane and sometimes outlandish secret operations and schemes, which first became known from recently declassified government documents about the so-called space race," writes Newsweek journalist Kurt Eichenwald ...

    "Due to poor planning, reckless designs and inept espionage in the early 1960s, America screwed up many stages of the space race, but the CIA won one of its best victories, stealthily snatching the Russian interplanetary station Luna right from under the noses of Soviet guards," - further informs Eichenwald.

    "A treasure trove of classified information obtained through this device allowed the American space authorities to study the capabilities and disadvantages of Russian spacecraft, and then steal what worked well," the publication says.

    The CIA owes its success to the exclusivity of the USSR's inability to refrain from bragging: the Russians went on tour to exhibit their industrial and economic achievements, displaying Sputnik and Luna models, among other exhibits. It soon became clear that the exhibition presented not copies, but originals of devices. After analyzing the situation, the CIA agents came to the conclusion that getting close to the "Moon" is possible only when the exhibition is moved from city to city.

    As a result, they bribed the driver of the truck carrying him. On the appointed day, making sure that no one was watching the car, they replaced the driver with their agents, arranging that for a night at one of the local hotels, the author tells.

    After that, the scouts opened a huge container with the "Moon", climbed inside and photographed the device in great detail. In the end, they left the truck at a predetermined location, and its real driver delivered the cargo to the train station for shipment to the next city.

    "There was no indication that the Russians knew about this information theft; this is a huge CIA success that was still proudly set as an example to newcomers to the agency in 1969, when Neil Armstrong was preparing to become the first person to walk on the moon," concludes Eichenwald ...

    Enough of these tales about the "white bull". Such nonsense could only be written by a person who was not at all familiar with the secrecy regime in the USSR. Go to the censor, and there you will read not such fiction, although Newsweek is the same "free press" as the censor, only an inadequate or completely inexperienced person can believe what is written there. Do better science fiction, especially since the result of the enthusiasm for the brainwashing press does not lead to good, the Kiev orgy is a confirmation of this.

    The open source FireFox browser excludes (hypothetically) the presence of anal probes. Millions of lines of software when it is impossible to evaluate and check for espionage in one face of the face. But this is the lesser evil I see.

    Android is one huge google anal probe. But who knows, maybe this is not the worst evil? Apple with bluish elitism is steeped in to so many people. An even smaller number are paired vertu. Windoze from Bill Gay shh, generally captured the world and costs a lot where ... Paranoia :)

    For a long time I thought about the topic: I often hear that Russian programmers are almost the best in the world. At the same time, we still use the software of Western developers. And lately we have been assured of spyware, the same Windows, Googl and others. So what is the problem of developing all the domestic support? and better than them?

      Such attempts have been made, but they have not been completed. Now "unfinished" smile OS is made as software to perform specific functions. Example: in the 90s was developed "Verba-O". Originally conceived as an answer to Microsoft. But the creation of an OS requires a lot of man-hours and resources, the size of the Microsoft company you know. So is it worth the effort? The costs are colossal, but in a short time (a year, two) to create something like Windows or Linux and equally competitive is very difficult and long. hi
