Apple scanning emails for pr0n
Have you heard about this scheme of Apples. Strictly for child protection (they say), for now.
Though it doesn't seem to protect the children, anywhere in the world, that are being sexually
exploited, in real time. Just going after anyone who happens to come across a photo of a sexually
abused child. Whether they were looking for that, or not.
Here's the more complicated explanation by Ars Technica. Which forgets to mention that the NCMEC
comes to kick down doors, after Apple finks on its customers.
I hope you could understand that, better than I could. A lot of technical word soup, to me.
Nothing is said about the age limit, that NCMEC decides on. Or any sexual lifestyle exceptions. Are
gay adults and children exempt, I wonder? Are the likes of Jeffrey Epstein, and rich Democrats,
And if Apple can use this system to hide a hash list database of sexual explicit photos, on users'
devices. Why couldn't Apple also hide some of the actual photos, on there, too? To finger anyone
they don't like, politically. Just burn anyone, for any reason, whenever it suits them. And the
NCMEC and left wing press will do the rest.
John Hopkins Univ. confirms my suspicions.
The public will never suspect (nor would the M5M allow them to), that anyone accused of having
child abuse photos, was falsely set up. And I don't buy the idea that hashes can never coincide for
more than one photo. There's just no way they can prove it can't happen. Nor prove, how seldom it
can happen. And I don't buy that they can hash photos, so no alterations or flips, don't change the
It sounds like comparing partial fingerprints, to full print records. And saying they never accuse
the wrong person, of a crime, from just 50% (or less) of their fingerprints. But this has actually
happened. Some people can have almost the same fingerprints, living thousands of miles apart.
And if Apple can hide a hash list of the CSAM images. What's to stop the Feds from hiding a hash
list of sensitive documents, they're looking out for, on such devices? No more whistle blowers.
I wonder when Microsoft will decide to build this into another version of Windows? At some point,
the police might just come to arrest all the OTG people, running Linux. Because they're obviously
hiding child porn. Right?
