Hackers have for years bought and sold their secrets in a de facto gray market for zero-day exploits—intrusion techniques for which no software patch exists. Now a new marketplace hopes to formalize that digital arms trade in a setting where it could flourish: under the cover of the Dark Web’s anonymity protections.
Over the last month, a darknet marketplace calling itself TheRealDeal Market has emerged; it focuses on brokering hackers’ zero-day attack methods. Like the Silk Road and its online black market successors, TheRealDeal uses the anonymity software Tor and the digital currency bitcoin to hide the identities of its buyers, sellers, and administrators. But while some other sites have sold only basic, low-level hacking tools and stolen financial details, TheRealDeal’s creators say they’re looking to broker premium hacker data like highly sought-after zero-days, source code, and hacking services. In some cases, these are offered on an exclusive, one-time sale basis.
A student’s cell phone isn’t a wallet or hairbrush. Its contents can be as personal as a diary.
In a Texas school district, for example, a teacher seized a student’s phone and searched her text-message history, discovering a private nude photograph she had sent to a friend. The teacher then shared the phone with the school district police officer.
And to make matters worse, the student got in trouble — she was suspended for 30 days because of “incorrigible behavior.”
In New York City, it’s a relief that the Michael Bloomberg-era ban on cell phones in city schools is over. For nearly a decade, the ban imposed needless burdens on kids and parents and served as an unnecessary flashpoint for confrontation between students and school staff.
But now that Mayor de Blasio is finally allowing city schools to catch up to the reality of the digital age, horror stories like the one in Texas show privacy protections for students must catch up in tandem.
WILBRAHAM, Mass (WGGB) — Protecting a student’s right to privacy. The Hampden Wilbraham Regional School Committee saying no to giving the company that oversees PARCC testing access to student’s (sic) social media accounts.
School committee members taking a stand for student’s rights to privacy. In a letter to the Massachusetts department of elementary and secondary education, Marc Ducey, chair of the regional school committee says, “It violated their privacy and is a slap in the face to our test proctors who are diligent in ensuring the test environment is protected. It is wrong.”
