Wiretapping the Secret Service can be easy and fun | Bryan Seely | TEDxKirkland

  • Опубликовано: 4 май 2015
  • In 2014, Bryan Seely hacked the Secret Service and the FBI, and then turned himself in to alert authorities to the problem. He'll tell you what you can do about it in his very entertaining talk.
    Bryan Seely has garnered a great deal of national attention in the last year. He recognized there were some critical problems with the websites we use most often. He learned that not only is our personal security threatened, but so is our national security. To prove his point, Seely hacked the Secret Service and the FBI last year, and then turned himself in to alert authorities to the problem. He'll tell you what you can do about it in his very entertaining talk.
    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

    Thank you for this info man people need to know how easy it is to get scammed, it happens way too much! Google prides themselves on standing against shady business practices and yet made no real attempt to fix this; they've lost a lot of my respect.

    It's not just on Google, its all over, eBay and Amazon are also shutting down small business owners too in generally similar ways by blocking or hiding different brands or lower priced items from showing when searching and browsing for products.

    And just what are the potential penalties and imprisonment for illegal wiretapping of the US Govt? Isn't it something like, go straight to being detained (locked up for life) without a trial? Sounds like you were poking the sleeping bears with a stick. Why not just advise the agencies of the vulnerability rather than commit a crime to make a point?

    Stop attempting to provide important information by couching it as "entertainment", TEDx Talks. IMHO, the firewall between entertainment and information should be reinstalled!

    How bout the Secret Service and the other organizations within the U.S. government fix it and crush businesses thst don't comply. If not...sell the secrets until someone gets it fixed. Government doesn't care about its own people so why should anyone give a damn about the government.

    But all those companies are doing is using Google Ad words to advertise their business. The ones being shut down dont have to use Google directories to list their business. No one is forcing them to use google. Google is a free service and their advertising is in every company they own. So those businesses that you say are loosing clients, would literally have NO clients if they didn't use google. Then they would have to get their information out by word of mouth or others forms of advertising yourself. The smaller businesses are gaining something from listing their business. They are making money from google. Because theya re gaining clients and google isn't making money for that. Unless, you are a business that uses ads on the google search page, then why not?! I see it as fair game for everyone.

    People need to remember this before they applaud Google and other tech giants for politicizing their business models and entering politics. They are corporations. Their bottom line is a bottom line, not the people. If unethical, unscrupulous, or otherwise questionable activity is taking place, if they are making a profit from it they will turn a blind eye.

    The whole locksmith thing has happened to me. This guy told me $25 over the phone and after he slim-jimmed the car, he said it was $60. He was scary and blocked me from accessing my car. I said, "FINE!" and gave him $30 with the $20 on top and he grabbed the money out of my hand and marched off into his car while I ran into mine and got ready to call the cops. He pointed his finger at me like he was shooting me and drove off. I was out of town, so I didn't care.
