  1. Police say they are preparing to send warning notices to more than 7,000 UK residents who are believed to have purchased pirate IPTV subscriptions. The warnings follow the arrest of a then 28-year-old man in the North-West of England during the summer and the seizure of luxury cars, expensive jewelry, and a pirate IPTV customer database. As pirate IPTV providers and resellers continue to provide access to low-cost premium TV services, law enforcement agencies around the world are stepping up efforts to disrupt their activities. Pirate IPTV p
  2. Google services have gone down across the UK, including Gmail, Google Drive and YouTube. Reports flooded the outage service DownDetector as users frantically tried to access their email accounts, Google documents and videos on YouTube. Google Drive and Google Hangouts are also down. The tech company says it is currently investigating the issue. ‘We’re aware of a problem with Gmail affecting a majority of users,’ the company stated. ‘The affected users are unable to access Gmail. We will provide an update by 12/14/20, 12:12 PM detailing when we expect to resolve the problem’ Meanwhile, Google’s
  3. Netflix adds age ratings to all content available in the UK The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) has announced that Netflix has become the first streaming service in the UK to add BBFC-approved age ratings to all its movie and TV content. Netflix also took this opportunity to give parents additional control features that leverage BBFC data. Commenting on the news, Chief Executive of the BBFC David Austin said: “With people spending increasing amounts of time online, it’s more important than ever for families to have clear, co
  4. Nothing from Chinese bogeyman allowed in core network by early 2023 The UK's Ministry of Fun* has published its roadmap for the removal of so-called high-risk vendors from UK telecoms networks as part of the second parliamentary reading of the Telecoms Security Bill. The roadmap adds detail to the previous edicts, which banned wireless carriers from acquiring new Huawei-made equipment by the end of the year, and forces them to fully remove existing Huawei kit by the conclusion of 2027. By the end of March 2021, networks will be prohibited from u
  5. LONDON (Reuters Breakingviews) - Britain’s new Digital Markets Unit has a distinctively Silicon Valley vibe. A sweeping mandate and the ability to act with tech-like speed raises the risk it will emulate Facebook’s old “move fast and break things” mantra. Still, it’s an upgrade on the ponderous, court-based approaches usually followed by Europe and the United States. The DMU, unveiled on Friday and due to begin work in April 2021, will police dominant technology groups like Facebook and Google’s parent, Alphabet. The theory is that a nimble, dedicated regulator can fix
  6. The government's Test and Trace app has given a women the results of a Covid test she said she had not taken. But Elaine Watson had not taken a test Elaine Watson, from Middlesbrough, was told by the app to self-isolate for seven days and then, on day six, that her test had come back negative. "I'm thinking, what do you mean a test? I haven't had a test," she said. The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) said the app was constantly being improved in response to
  7. Global retailers should help collect, recycle and repair tech products, say MPs Global giants such as Amazon and Apple should be made responsible for helping to collect, recycle and repair their products to cut the 155,000 tonnes of electronic waste being thrown away each year in the UK, MPs say. An investigation by the environmental audit committee found the UK is lagging behind other countries and failing to create a circular economy in electronic waste. The UK creates the second highest levels of electronic waste in the world, after No
  8. A new security bill enshrines the Huawei ban into UK law, and lays out sanctions for those who fail to follow the rules. Stricter security rules will be enforced around the deployment of future mobile networks in the UK, and telecoms companies could face hefty fines if they fail to adhere to higher standards, according to a new law on the security of 5G and fiber networks. A new draft telecommunications security presented to Parliament aims to strengthen the security of next-generation networks, and to provide the government with "unprecedented" powers to
  9. LONDON (Reuters) - Britain’s competition regulator said on Monday it was assessing whether a complaint about Google related to digital advertising warranted a formal competition law investigation. The complaint from Marketers for an Open Web (MOW), a coalition of technology and publishing companies, said it wanted the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) to delay the launch of Google’s Privacy Sandbox technology. MOW said the technology would remove features such as login and advertising from the open web and put them under Google’s control.
  10. Creaky old law holds back global competitiveness, says group A majority of British infosec professionals worry about accidentally breaking the UK's antiquated Computer Misuse Act, according to an industry campaign group that hopes to reform the law. The Cyberup campaign, which includes NCC Group, Orpheus Cyber, Context Information Security, Nettitude, F Secure and others, first wrote to UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson in July 2019 urging him to update the regulations. In its latest study, the group reckoned that 80 per cent of security professio
  11. That's 10 years earlier than first planned. The UK might soon move up its ban on sales of combustion engine cars — yes, again. The Financial Times and the BBC both claim Prime Minister Boris Johnson will announce a ban on fossil fuel car sales by 2030, five years ahead of the most recent target, and a full decade sooner than initially planned. Hybrid sales would continue until 2035, but pure gas (petrol) and diesel vehicles would quickly vanish from dealerships. The accelerated ti
  12. Whether or not ethical restrictions allow that is another matter. It’s no secret that numerous militaries are relying more on drones and other robotic vehicles, but the UK’s leadership has a particularly bold vision. As the Guardian reports, armed forces head General Sir Nick Carter told Sky News in an interview that he believed a quarter of the British Army could be robots by the 2030s. He was careful to stress that he wasn’t setting firm targets, but these automatons could serve at and near the front lines of a given conflict. This wasn’t idle speculation
  13. Facebook is being sued for failing to protect users' personal data in the Cambridge Analytica breach. The scandal involved harvested Facebook data of 87 million people being used for advertising during elections. Mass legal action is being launched against Facebook for misuse of information from almost one million users in England and Wales. Facebook said it has not received any documents regarding this claim. The group taking action - Facebook You Ow
  14. In other countries, the UK is often used as a prime example of how pirate site-blocking injunctions can function effectively. However, over the past several years, movie and music companies haven't requested any new blocks. As a result, new pirate sites can flourish, for now. Website blocking is without a doubt one of the favorite anti-piracy tools of the entertainment industries. The UK has been a leader on this front. Since 2011, the High Court has ordered ISPs to block access to many popular pirate sites. While official
  15. A new report published by PRS for Music reveals that UK traffic to stream-ripper sites has skyrocketed over the past three years. The findings reveal a massive 1390% traffic boost. Intrigued by these findings, we decided to take a closer look at the methodology, with some surprising results that cast doubt on the overall conclusions. Every year, dozens of piracy studies and surveys appear online. These can help to signal new trends and changes in user behavior. When done right, research can be a valuable tool to shape future law or to direct
  16. In 2019, the High Court of England and Wales ruled that by offering an index of non UK-based or unlicensed radio stations to UK residents, radio aggregator service TuneIn breached copyright. In response the service has now geo-blocked thousands of stations leaving UK customers without their favorite sounds. Unless they use a VPN, then it's business as usual. TuneIn is one of the most prominent providers of radio content in the world. Available for free or on a premium basis, its site and associated app provide access to more than 100,000 sta
  17. Following the arrest of a 24-year-old man in the UK late June, police used his pirate IPTV service to display a warning message to subscribers. To further press home the message that viewing pirate streams is illegal, police are now serving thousands of GE Hosting's subscribers with cease-and-desist notices, referencing theoretical prosecutions under the Fraud Act. Late June, officers from Norfolk and Suffolk Constabulary’s Cyber and Serious Organised Crime Unit arrested a 24-year-old man in the UK under suspicion of operating a pirate IPTV service. F
  18. The latest IP Crime and Enforcement Report, published by the UK Government, signals a wide variety of ongoing and emerging piracy threats. Pirate IPTV services remain a growing problem that could become worse with the rollout of 5G, it reads. There are also concerns about the use of cryptocurrencies and the growth of stream-rippers. Last week the UK Government’s Intellectual Property Office published its annual IP Crime and Enforcement Report. The report provides an overview of the latest anti-piracy achievements of copyright holders and als
  19. The new Premier League season will begin without crowds due to the coronavirus yet 160 games will not be televised in the UK, a gap that pirate IPTV providers will fill using broadcasts from abroad. The Premier League has recently obtained a new ISP blocking injunction but the Football Supporters' Association is begging for the obvious: Don't give fans no other option than to turn to illegal services. While there’s no doubt that humans have been kicking objects around for fun for thousands of years, organized football as we know it today has existed in th
  20. Samsung could build UK 5G if Huawei is banned Samsung says it can provide mobile operators with 5G kit (Image credit: focustech) Samsung says it could provide the kit necessary for UK operators to build 5G networks should they be banned from procuring Huawei equipment. The Korean electronics giant has a limited presence in the mobile equipment market but has big ambitions for 5G, hoping to secure 20 per cent of the market by 2020. It has seen strong demand in its native South Korea as well as from US operators who are ba
  21. A man and woman arrested over the Gatwick Airport drone chaos have been released without charge. Sussex Police say the 47-year-old man and 54-year-old woman, both from Crawley, are "no longer suspects" in the incident. Some 1,000 aircraft were cancelled or disrupted during the chaos, which began on Wednesday evening, affecting around 140,000 passengers. Detective Chief Superintendent Jason Tingley said: “Both people have fully co-operated with our enquiries and I am satisfied that they are no longer suspects in the drone incidents at Gatwick. “It
  22. Stay-at-home Bond types set off the loudest irony klaxon Maybe don't snoop on a charity that makes privacy its priority... UK SPOOKS HAVE FESSED-UP to unlawfully snooping on and sifting through the private data of Privacy International, all thanks to bulk data collection. As part of the MI5's Bulk Communications Data and Bulk Personal Data programmes, supposedly used to detect criminal and terrorist activity, Britain's domestic intelligence agency ended up gathering and perusing Privacy International's private data. And it wasn't the only on
  23. Slams Home Office's lack of engagement with privacy fears The UK Home Office's alleged indifference towards civil rights groups' concerns over the creation of a mammoth policing database has caused Liberty to ditch the government-run consultation group on the project. The Home Office is planning to replace the creaky Police National Computer (PNC) and Police National Database (PND) with a Law Enforcement Data Service (LEDS) as part of its National Law Enforcement Data Programme. Once this is complete, the PNC and PND will be switched off. Eventua

  25. MPs in UK say ‘wild west’ cryptocurrency industry is leaving investors vulnerable Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are “wild west” assets that expose investors to a litany of risks and are in urgent need of regulation, MPs on the Treasury select committee have said. The committee said in a report that consumers were left unprotected from an unregulated industry that aided money laundering, while the government and regulators “bumble along” and fail to take action. The Conservative MP Nicky Morgan, the chair of the committee, said the current situation
