ANYONE can be re-identified from ‘anonymous data’, researchers claim & let you TEST it
Online services that claim to anonymize users’ personal data aren’t as secure as we think, according to researchers who found over 99 percent of people can be identified from a handful of supposedly anonymous data points.

Doubters will be quickly silenced with the online tool the researchers developed to accompany their paper, published in Nature Communications on Tuesday. Using just three commonly-requested demographic attributes – birthdate, zip code, and gender – the program is able to successfully identify users about 83 percent of the time. And with 5 and more data points the machine-learning model gets it right over 99 percent of the time.

Still think data anonymization will protect you? Give it a try here (authors promise not to collect your data).

These alarming results “question whether current de-identification practices satisfy the anonymization standards of modern data protection laws,” the researchers, hailing from Université Catholique de Louvain in Belgium and Imperial College London, wrote, pointing out that “data that does not contain obvious identifiers but might be re-identifiable” is still protected by privacy laws like the EU’s GDPR and California’s Consumer Privacy Act, which protect sensitive personal information from being shared without users' consent. Popular anonymization techniques like noise and sampling simply do not provide enough protection against potentially malicious actors reverse-engineering their methods – a major problem as more and more personal information, especially health data, moves into the cloud.

“The goal of anonymization is so we can use data to benefit society,” Yves-Alexandre de Montjoye, one of the researchers, told CNBC. “This is extremely important but should not and does not have to happen at the expense of people’s privacy.”

Given how many data points many online platforms contain, the risk of deanonymization isn’t just a risk – it’s a certainty. Credit reporting agencies, for example, hoard as many as 248 separate demographic identifiers on their customers. Nearly three quarters of Americans are concerned about sharing personal information online, according to a 2015 Harvard Business Review survey – and rightfully so, given the near-daily frequency of major hacks, breaches, and leaks – but few understand the complexities of what actually happens to their data when they submit it.

VIDEO of Russian & Chinese bombers on 'first' joint patrol in Asia-Pacific region
Russian Defense Ministry has released footage of its Tu-95MS bombers accompanied by the Chinese military, saying it is a first-of-its-kind joint patrol of their long-range aircraft in the Asia-Pacific region.

The In the video, the Tu-95MS strategic bombers are seen taking off at an undisclosed airfield inside Russia. They approach a rendezvous point, meeting with two Chinese Xian H-6 bombers.

Earlier, South Korea and Japan claimed the bombers violated their airspace, subsequently scrambling fighter jets. Moscow and Beijing refuted the allegations, saying their mission breached no international rules or borders of other countries.

Moscow: S. Korean Pilots ‘Acted Unprofessionally’, Russian Bombers Did Not Violate Seoul’s Airspace
TEHRAN (FNA)- The Russian Defense Ministry accused South Korean pilots of acting “unprofessionally” while dangerously crossing the path of Russian bombers, which were on a routine mission over “international waters”.

Two Russian Air Force Tu-95MS bombers were flying over the Sea of Japan when they encountered a pair of South Korean F-16 fighter jets. The F-16s “performed unprofessional maneuvers while crossing the course of the bombers, thus putting their safety at risk”, the Russian MoD said in a statement, RT reported.

The fighters also did not attempt to communicate with the Russian crews.

Earlier in the day, Seoul’s Joint Chiefs of Staff committee claimed their jets were scrambled to intercept the intruding Russian aircraft which violated South Korean airspace twice. Moscow insists the encounter took place over 25km from the isles of Dokdo (known as Takeshima in Japan), and that they recorded no violation of aerial borders by Russian planes.

Rejecting the JCS accusations that the Tu-95s breached South Korea’s air defense identification zone (KADIZ), Russia said there are no international regulations that stipulate the existence of these areas.

Moscow does not recognize them either, “which was repeatedly communicated to the South Korean side through various channels”.

At the end of the mid-air encounter, the South Korean jets fired flares and went away, the defense ministry stated.

Moscow also denied reports that “warning shots” were fired at the Tu-95s. If that was the case and the Russian pilots considered themselves in danger, there would have been “an answer” to that.

Tokyo Lodges Protest With Moscow, Seoul Over Incident With Russian Plane in Sea of Japan
TOKYO (Sputnik) - Tokyo lodged a diplomatic protest with Moscow and Seoul after an incident involving a Russian warplane flying over the Liancourt Rocks, a territory in the Sea of Japan/East Sea that is contested by Japan and South Korea.

"This territory belongs to our state and such actions are unacceptable," the text of the protest said, as quoted by Kyodo news agency.

The South Korean Joint Chiefs of Staff said earlier in the day that a Russian A-50 control aircraft had illegally crossed into South Korean airspace twice over the Sea of Japan, and that South Korean F-16 fighters fired warning shots in response.

According to media reports, the incident took place several hours after two Russian Tu-95MS strategic bombers and two Chinese aircraft entered the South Korean air defence identification zone.

On Tuesday, the Russian Defense Ministry refuted Seoul's claims that the Tu-95MS had violated South Korean airspace, stressing that the South Korean fighters had performed non-professional manoeuvres and crossed course with the Russian planes, jeopardizing their security. The ministry made no mention of any A-50 aircraft.


The Russian Defense Ministry accused South Korea of repeatedly trying to impede Russia's flights over the Sea of Japan’s neutral waters, referring to an "air defence identification zone" unilaterally imposed by Seoul that is not envisaged in international regulations or recognized by Russia.

The Liancourt Rocks islands, also known as Dokdo by South Korea and Takeshima by Japan, have been administered by Seoul since 1954, a claim Japan disputes. Tokyo has suggested that Seoul should present the issue to the International Court of Justice. However, South Korea believes there is no dispute over the islands and considers them to be its territory historically, geographically and legally.

Iraqi Official: ISIL Linked to Israeli Mossad

Iraqi Official: ISIL Linked to Israeli Mossad
TEHRAN (FNA)- A senior Iraqi official disclosed Israel's support for the ISIL terrorists in his country, saying the terrorist group has been backed up by the Mossad spying agency.

Head of the Muslim Ulema Union in Iraq's Diyala province Jabbar al-Amouri told the Arabic-language Baghdad al-Youm news website that there is much proof and evidence on Israel's support for the ISIL terrorists in Iraq through the Mossad.

He added that the Iraqi security forces have found Israeli manufactured medicine, bombs and advanced communication systems at a number of bases during cleansing operations against the ISIL in Amerli and Suleiman Beik regions near the town of Tuz Khormatuz in Salahuddin province in the past 3 years.

Yet, Al-Amouri said the vital issue has gone unnoticed in the media due to overwhelming clashes and developments in Iraq.

In relevant remarks on Monday, a senior member of the Iraqi parliament's security and defense committee revealed the presence of a large number of Israeli intelligence agents in the US-occupied bases in Iraq, saying that they collaborated in the recent attack against Hashd al-Shaabi positions in Salahuddin province.

Karim al-Mohammadawi told the Arabic-language al-Ma'aloumeh news website that several Israeli spies are stationed in the US bases in Iraq's Western provinces.

He added that the recent attack by Israeli F-35 fighter jets against Hashd al-Shaabi in Amerli region of Salahuddin province was conducted based on precise intelligence provided by Israeli spies in Iraq.

Lebanese media outlets had reported on Sunday that the positions of Hashd al-Shaabi in Salahuddin province were attacked on Friday by an Israeli fighter jet.

The Arabic-language al-Ahd news website quoted informed security sources as saying that Hashd al-Shaabi positions were targeted by three Israeli Harop missiles, 'Loitering Munition', which weight 23kg, are mounted on a flying object and explode when hitting the target.

It added that these warheads can be controlled remotely and their range is 1,000km.

"Only Israel is in possession of this type of weapons in the Middle-East," al-Ahd reported.

Informed security sources told al-Ahd that the Israeli F-16 fighter jets infiltrated into Southeastern al-Ratbah in al-Anbar province over the Baghdad-Amman and Baghdad-Damascus international road and fired the warheads.

Earlier reports said that an unmanned drone had on Friday bombed a base operating by Hashd al-Shaabi in Iraq with sources saying two people were wounded.

“The Al-Shuhada base of the Hashed al-Shaabi in the Amerli region was hit at dawn… by an unidentified drone, wounding two people,” the Iraqi military said in a statement on Friday.

Meantime, a spokesman for Iraq's Hashd al-Shaabi forces dismissed media claims that the Iranian military advisors had been killed in a recent drone attack against Amerli base, located in the Tuz Khurmatu district of Northern Iraq’s Salahuddin province.

"Opposite to what the biased media said, no advisors or IRGC (Islamic Revolution Guards Corps) forces have been killed," Ali al-Hosseini was quoted by the Arabic-language Baghdad al-Youm news website as saying on Saturday.

Also, the Arabic-language al-Etejah news channel quoted special sources in Nineveh province as saying that before the Friday attack against the Hashd al-Shaabi base in Amerli, a US spy plane conducted reconnaissance operations against the Hashd al-Shaabi and Iraqi army forces in the region.

The source said that the spy plane carried out reconnaissance operations over Sanjar mountain and the Southern areas of the region.

"The US flew B350 plane that is picked for mission by the US intelligence services for air surveillance and is equipped with advanced vision systems. It can also carry 5 to 7 people," he added.
