Google Search China: revelations about laughter and crying

Google is reportedly developing a prototype system that will link Chinese service users' searches to their personal phone numbers.

Ναι είναι η νέα υπηρεσία ς που ετοιμάζει η Google για να συμμορφώνεται με τις απαιτήσεις λογοκρισίας της κυβέρνησης της Κίνας.

The Intercept he says that Dragonfly a for Android, is a secret program that was revealed after a complaint last month, The app could be linked to a user's phone number, making it very simple to trace the individual searches of the service's users.

In addition to searching a hardcoded blacklist for the terms “human rights,” “student protest,” and “Nobel Prize,” Dragonfly's detection can also surface data processed by the Chinese government. So the could read completely different results for Chinese activist and Nobel laureate Liu Xiaobo.

Sources also told Intercept that "hardcoded" results apply to almost everything. This will make it possible to replace the weather and the effects of air pollution with processed data from China.

Google has not confirmed the existence of Dragonfly, although it has said that it is conducting "exploratory" work for a search service in China.

The above references have cause reactions εντός και εκτός της εταιρείας. Περίπου 1.400 εργαζόμενοι της Google υπέγραψαν μια επιστολή που απαιτεί περισσότερες πληροφορίες σχετικά με το . Το Intercept he says that Google's senior researcher, Jack Poulson, has resigned for the project, indicating that there are a total of five workers left behind by Dragonfly.

Google left mainland China in 2010 when it discovered one ηλεκτρονικού ψαρέματος (phishing) που απευθυνόταν σε ακτιβιστές ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων. Η κυβέρνηση της Κίνας έχει περιορίσει τα δικαιώματα των χρηστών στο διαδίκτυο από το 2010 και ταυτόχρονα επεκτείνει ένα καθεστώς κοινωνικού ελέγχου υψηλής τεχνολογίας που περιλαμβάνει αποτελέσματα “κοινωνικής πίστης” και μια εξελιγμένη συσκευή επιτήρησης για την παρακολούθηση των μουσουλμάνων στο Xinjiang.

Let's say that even without linking a phone number with censored terms, searches on Dragonfly will not be safe.

Ο Poulson εξέφρασε την ανησυχία του για το γεγονός ότι τα δεδομένα των χρηστών απλώς θα φιλοξενούνται στην Κίνα, κάτι που σημαίνει ότι οι κυβερνητικές υπηρεσίες, θα μπορούν να έχουν πρόσβαση. Ωστόσο, το mentioned adds another level of control and indicates Google's willingness to make surveillance much easier.

  1. I suggest taking a drop of blood to have a DNA database as well.
    Perhaps it was also a good idea to visit the local police station once a week and to sign a declaration of loyalty from internet users.
