Apple will spy on the confidential Cloud information

3

Apple announced they will spy on everyone’s Cloud, not in those words but that is what it will amount to. The Cloud was supposed to be private and secure.

He has a good excuse for going this route. Apple will look for child porn, but that is only the beginning.

Expect people to go to prison for myriad other reasons and don’t forget the censorship they are planning.

Maybe he’s been dealing with Maoist China for too long.

According to Erick Erickson, we shouldn’t be concerned. Apple is going to give them to an agency that collects child porn. It’s nothing to be worried about.

To Protect the Children

Apple says to “protect children,” they’re updating every iPhone to continuously compare your photos and cloud storage against a secret blacklist. If it finds a hit, they call the cops. iOS will also tell your parents if you view a nude in iMessage.

This is very bad news. The truth is they don’t have the capability to spy on only child porn. They have to spy on everything.

It’s an intrusion.

They say they want to ‘think different and open a back door to your private life.

Apple is planning to build a backdoor into its data storage system and its messaging system.

Child exploitation is a serious problem but this is a terrible idea. A better idea would be to stop the illegal alien traffickers from crossing the border.

EFF writes, “We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again now: it’s impossible to build a client-side scanning system that can only be used for sexually explicit images sent or received by children. As a consequence, even a well-intentioned effort to build such a system will break key promises of the messenger’s encryption itself and open the door to broader abuses.”

“All it would take to widen the narrow backdoor that Apple is building is an expansion of the machine learning parameters to look for additional types of content, or a tweak of the configuration flags to scan, not just children’s, but anyone’s accounts. That’s not a slippery slope; that’s a fully built system just waiting for external pressure to make the slightest change.”

It’s not a slippery slope, it is the CCP-like system ready to go.

  1. As I Keep saying, ANOTHER reason NOT to have a Smartphone. **Anything you “say” Can and Will be used against You in a Court of Law”.

    • In the early 80’s I worked where the company had a number of mainframe computers. It was at the time the very first IBM PC’s came to market along with 30″ Plasma displays. The screen had four sections for each mainframe and Alt-Tab switched between them. It was the end of the Dumb Terminals. Instead of a Word Processor mainframe, the PC had it’s own software. It would be the end of mainframes. So when I first heard of “Cloud Computing” I realized we are returning to essentially mainframe systems. The last company I worked for used the Microsoft Cloud which I traced to Brazil and their office suite was on the cloud rather than the PC. Gates, himself, does want to return to those “good ol days”. More companies like Adobe are reverting to Subscription models using cloud computing also. I haven’t upgraded different software that went from stand-alone to subscription.
