Peppering the 8,000 pages of purported Central Intelligence Agency hacking data released Tuesday by WikiLeaks are reviews of some of the world's most popular anti-virus products.
The hackers are quoted taking potshots at anti-virus firms, suggesting the American intelligence agencies are keenly aware of flaws in the products meant to be keeping us all safe online.
The data published by WikiLeaks isn't systematic enough to draw firm conclusions about the reliability of one product or another and the uncertain dating means the CIA's critiques provide more of a snapshot than an overview.
Still, the posts show America's top cyberspies aren't always flattering about commonly used security software. …

SYDNEY, Australia. Feb 17. 2017. 9:45am AEDT.
Legendary Australian rock band and agitators Midnight Oil today announced their first World Tour in over two decades. They also unveiled plans to release three archival box sets including a collection called “The Overflow Tank” which will contain more than 14 hours of previously unreleased and rare material.
“The Great Circle 2017” World Tour will see the group’s classic line-up literally circle around our overheating planet for 6 months, starting and ending with gigs in Sydney. Appropriately for a band forged in their hometown’s sweat-drenched beer barns, the tour will begin in mid-April with an intimate local pub gig (details to be announced closer to the date). Midnight Oil will then hone their live show with over 30 gigs around the world during the northern summer, playing iconic venues from Sao Paulo’s Espaço das Americas and the Wiltern in L.A. to London’s Hammersmith Apollo and The Olympia in Paris. They will share festival stages with artists like Arcade Fire, Sting and The Pixies and finally return to New Zealand after 20 years.
This long-awaited World Tour will climax with 18 special homecoming concerts through October and November, 2017. Given the band’s deep connections with central Australia the local leg will kick off in Alice Springs and Darwin before starting to circle their homeland with a show in the rainforest near Cairns. Over the following five weeks the tour will loop clockwise around the country in mainly outdoor venues including Hope Estate in the Hunter Valley, Victoria’s Hanging Rock and Melbourne’s Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Brisbane’s Riverstage and the Village Green beside Adelaide Oval before “The Great Circle” finally comes to a close right back where it all began; with a final show in Sydney on November 11 at that traditional home of Australian political activism, The Domain.

Als der Schriftsteller Robert Anton Wilson in den 70er-Jahren zusammen mit Robert Shea die "Illuminatus!"-Trilogie veröffentlichte, trafen sie den Nerv eines paranoiden Amerika. Der Watergate-Skandal erschütterte das sowieso schon geringe Vertrauen in die politische Führungsriege und sorgte für die Entstehung zahlreicher Verschwörungstheorien.
Um es mit Wilson zu sagen: "Wenn die Politik der Lüge normal wird, werden Paranoia und Entfremdung zum Normalfall des Alltags." Heute können Populisten und Verschwörungstheoretiker durch das Internet noch schneller ihr Publikum erreichen. Aus Chaos und Informationsüberfluss extrahieren sie einfache Antworten und Erklärungsmodelle. Eine gute Zeit, sich an Robert Anton Wilson und die Operation Mindfuck zu erinnern.
