  1. Russia bans 'Death Note' and other 'violent' anime A court blocked the shows on some streaming sites. Madhouse It seems a Russian court has started to scribble the names of anime series in a mysterious black notebook. A district court banned Death Note, Tokyo Ghoul and Inuyashiki on certain streaming websites over worries that teens are recreating violent acts from them. The St. Petersburg court system alleged that "Every episode contains cruelty, murder, violence," according to the The Moscow Times. In De
  2. The Association for the Protection of Copyright on the Internet (AZAPI) has filed complaints with Russia's Federal Antimonopoly Service against Internet giants Yandex and Mail.ru. According to AZAPI, granting some rightsholders access to tools that remove links to pirated copies from search results while denying the same to publishers amounts to an abuse of their dominant market positions. Every week, millions of Internet users turn to search engines hoping to find links to pirated content. Not to so long ago, this could prove effective but in recent years th
  3. MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia has opened a case against U.S. tech giant Google for failing to remove banned content from its search engine, communications watchdog Roskomnadzor said on Monday. Roskomnadzor said Google was not removing up to 30% of what it called “dangerous content”, some of which it said was extremist, pornographic and suicidal in nature. It opened “administrative proceedings” that could lead to a court case and a fine of up to 5 million roubles ($65,670). Google in Russia declined to comment. A Russian court previously fined Google
  4. Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube at risk of getting blocked in Russia for "discriminating" against Russian news sites like Russia Today, RIA Novosti, and Crimea 24. The Russian government is working on a new law to block foreign social media sites inside Russia's territory as repercussions for "discriminating" against Russian news outlets operating abroad. Sites like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube are specifically mentioned in "explanatory notes" (Word document) accompanying the new draft bill, submitted last week for debate in the Russian Duma (state
  5. Edward Snowden has been living in Russia since June 2013. NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden received permanent residency rights from the Russian government, Snowden's lawyer, Anatoly Kucherena, said on Thursday. The 37-year-old former NSA analyst has been living in Russia on a temporary residency since June 2013. According to Russian state news agency TASS, which first broke the story today, Snowden's temporary residency permit had expired in April this year but was automatically extended throughout the summer due to delays in government b
  6. New amendments to copyright law in Russia require companies including Apple and Google to remove infringing apps from their respective stores or face blocking by local ISPs. With Apple already being sued in a local court for offering 'pirate' apps, both companies have now officially confirmed they will begin cooperation to remove piracy apps. Following two years of negotiations, this summer saw Russia’s State Duma adopt the final text of a new amendments to copyright law. Subsequently signed off by President Putin, the law came into effect October 1, 2020, ad
  7. Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music and a division of Warner have filed applications for a preliminary injunction against Apple at the Moscow City Court. The complaints target three apps, all currently available on the App Store, that reportedly enable users to access music without paying for it. Initial tests reveal that is indeed the case. After years in the making, last Thursday a new law came into force in Russia designed to quickly remove piracy-enabling apps from the download stores of companies including Apple and Google. The le
  8. Google, Apple and other Internet platforms that offer copyright-infringing movie, TV show and music apps, face the possibility of being blocked by ISPs in Russia after a new law came into effect this week. The draconian measure will only come into play if sites offering pirate apps fail to quickly comply with copyright complaints filed by local telecoms watchdog Roscomnadzor. For well over a decade copyright holders have been developing their capabilities to block sites at the ISP level. Specially crafted “no fault” injunctions obtained around the world mean
  9. Russia wants no-hack pact, CERTs and nuclear agencies to conduct regular chit-chats Russia has taken the unusual step of posting a proposal for a new information security collaboration with the United States of America, including a no-hack pact applied to electoral affairs. The document, titled "Statement by President of Russia Vladimir Putin on a comprehensive program of measures for restoring the Russia – US cooperation in the filed [sic] of international information security", opens by saying "one of today's major strategic challenges is the risk of a la

  11. MOSCOW (Reuters) - Rescuers have found nine dead construction workers after a fire in a mine in Russia operated by potash maker Uralkali, Russian news agencies reported on Sunday. The workers were trapped underground by smoke after a fire broke out in the mine in Solikamsk, some 1,500 km (930 miles) northeast of Moscow, on Saturday morning. The fire, which broke out in a section of the mine that was under construction, has yet to be fully extinguished, Interfax reported. Rescuers were working to recover the bodies from a depth of more than 360 m
  12. MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia’s only aircraft carrier was damaged while undergoing repairs in the north of the country after the floating dock holding it sank in the early hours of Tuesday and a crane crashed onto its deck, tearing a gash up to 5 meters wide. The Admiral Kuznetsov has seen action in Russia’s military campaign in Syria in support of President Bashar al-Assad with its planes carrying out air strikes against rebel forces. It was being overhauled on one of the world’s biggest floating docks in the icy waters of the Kola Bay near Murmansk close to w
  13. Russia is considering whether to disconnect from the global internet briefly, as part of a test of its cyber-defences. The test will mean data passing between Russian citizens and organisations stays inside the nation rather than being routed internationally. A draft law mandating technical changes needed to operate independently was introduced to its parliament last year. The test is expected to happen before 1 April but no exact date has been set. Major disruption The draft law, called the Digital Economy National Program, requires Russia's I
  14. NBC News published a predictably viral story Friday, claiming that “experts who track websites and social media linked to Russia have seen stirrings of a possible campaign of support for Hawaii Democrat Tulsi Gabbard.” But the whole story was a sham: the only “experts” cited by NBC in support of its key claim was the firm, New Knowledge, that just got caught by the New York Times fabricating Russian troll accounts on behalf of the Democratic Party in the Alabama Senate race to manufacture false accusations that the Kremlin was interfering in that election. T
  15. Russia Plans to Block Pirate Sites Without Trial & De-Anonymize Their Operators Russia's Ministry of Culture has tabled new amendments to copyright law that will allow rightsholders to order web hosts to block pirate sites without trial, if they are unresponsive to takedown demands. Site owners will also be forced to publish their names and addresses on their platforms but it's not yet clear how this can be enforced. Like most regions in the world, Russia has an online piracy problem, with millions of citizens regularly using pirate sites to
  16. Russian Ebook Pirates ‘Exploit Loophole’ in Anti-Piracy Legislation When pirate sites are getting blocked left, right and center, those offering copied content need to get creative. According to reports in Russian media, eBook pirates are exploiting loopholes in the law to sell content to consumers, not only completely privately but without fear of criminal sanctions. With many thousands of sites now blocked in Russia following allegations of copyright infringement, piracy should – at least in theory – become harder. Many of the mos
  17. Twitter fined the same sum last week. LinkedIn was blocked inside Russia's borders in 2016 for the same offense. A Moscow court fined Facebook today 3,000 rubles (approximately $47) for failing to comply with a data privacy law and store data of Russian Facebook users on servers located inside Russia. The legal proceedings started after a complaint from Roskomnadzor (Russia's Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology and Mass Media), the country's telecommunications watchdog. Roskomnadzor lodged a complaint after
  18. Russia carried out a “stunning” hack of U.S. intelligence services’ most sensitive communications, Yahoo News reports. The hack is believed to have happened around 2010 and reportedly gave Russian spies in Washington, New York, and San Francisco access to the location of FBI surveillance teams as well as the actual content of FBI communications. The hack may have allowed the Russian agents to avoid FBI surveillance, communicate with U.S. sources, and gather intelligence on their FBI pursuers, according to the report. “When we found out
  19. A Russian security researcher has found that hardware equipment meant to be used by Russian authorities to intercept internet traffic had been leaving data exposed on the internet. The leaky equipment were SORM devices. These are hardware wiretaps that all Russian internet service providers and mobile telecoms must install in their data centers to comply with local legislation. When translated from Russian, SORM stands for System for Operative Investigative Activities. SORM devices are hardware equipment that support the SORM technical specification passed
  20. The head of Russia's security service said Thursday it is now reviving cooperation with US agencies over cybersecurity despite major tensions between the two countries. "We are restoring those relations," the head of the FSB security service, Alexander Bortnikov, told journalists in comments reported by Interfax news agency, despite trading accusations of cyber attacks in recent years. "We discuss a lot of questions with the Americans, including about providing information security and cyber security," Bortnikov said. He cited as an example t
  21. Russia's slowly building its own Great Firewall model, centralizing internet traffic through government servers. Today, a new "internet sovereignty" law entered into effect in Russia, a law that grants the government the ability to disconnect the entire country from the global internet. The law was formally approved by President Putin back in May. The Kremlin government cited the need to have the ability to disconnect Russia's cyberspace from the rest of the world in the event of a national emergency or foreign threat, such as a cyberattack.
  22. Microsoft Corp said it has tracked "significant" cyberattacks coming from a group it calls "Strontium" or "Fancy Bear", targeting anti-doping authorities and global sporting organisations. The group, also called APT28, has been linked to the Russian government, Microsoft said in a blog post. At least 16 national and international sporting and anti-doping organisations across three continents were targeted in the attacks which began on Sept 16, according to the company. The company said some of these attacks had been successful, but the majority had not. Micro
  23. Companies are afraid that future GitLab support staff in China and Russia might steal their data, or be coerced by foreign intelligence services to pass on trade secrets. Code hosting platform GitLab is considering blocking new hires from countries such as China and Russia. Eric Johnson, VP of Engineering at GitLab, said discussions on banning new hires from the two countries began after enterprise customers expressed concerns about the geopolitical climate of the two countries. GitLab is a service akin to GitHub, where companies can host source
  24. Russia to pre-install its own apps on all phones, PCs, and TVs sold in the country Russia has officially passed a law banning the sale of electronic equipment that doesn’t have Russian software pre-installed on it. The law — which is set to go into effect starting July 1, 2020 — will force electronic equipment sold in Russia — such as smartphones, computers, and smart TVs — to ship pre-installed with apps from Russian tech firms. The bill was tabled in the parliament earlier this month. The government is expected to publish for each
  25. This Moscow to the very top LAST MONTH THE ENTIRE population of Ecuador had private data leaked on to the internet. Now it's Russia's turn: it's not the entire country this time, but due to their relative population sizes, the leak is pretty much identical in size. In other words, it's bloody huge. Comparitech and security researcher Bob Diachenko discovered a database with over 20 million Russian tax records left open on an unsecured web server. If you have a web browser - very much like the one you're looking at right now - you could have seen pers
