« After years of a push to digitise databases in the country, and introduce digital identity cards and biometrics for voting, activists warn these technologies can be used to target and attack vulnerable groups.

“We understand that the Taliban is now likely to have access to various biometric databases and equipment in ,” the Human Rights First group wrote on Twitter on Monday. »

@r_a And, like many papers about digital surveillance, this article is published on a Web site which tracks users and where the button "Accept all cookies" is at the beginning and the button "Reject them all" hidden at the end.

Certes ! mais au moins le bouton "Reject them all" n'est pas sur fond transparent et en dehors de la pop-up, comme souvent, et on peut "Reject them all" et accéder au contenu. 😁

@r_a What, it’s not just for “the good guys?” I’m shocked, SHOCKED, I tell you!

And let's hope that they have access to no such thing as the software the French government was testing last autumn (L. Valdiguié, « Un super logiciel espion des réseaux sociaux », Marianne, 13-19 novembre 2020) :
« Le logiciel, sur Facebook, peut aussi se faire passer pour un ami, ce qui permet de naviguer ni vu ni connu à l'intérieur de profils en principe inaccessibles. »

@r_a Where can we find this ? : "and also put together a manual on how to evade biometrics"

We have to use this drame to alert on all current "advanced" security laws in our still preserved countries, and to find ways to prevent people from this potentially occuring situation!
