I would reallly like to know if there are any computer/networking  security groups that are activly busy in developing information
about privacy, and how microsoft invades your life, and how certian future technologies are infected and designed to reduce your
privacy, and are postured to spy on you. Has anyone put togather any doccumentation about individual programs and what security holes they
have, what backdoors they have, if they secretly communicate to someone else, if they support the invasion of privacy ?
I am not paranoid, but I like to act that way once in a while. (Helps me to analize my own safety) If there is nothing along these lines, I would like
to spearhead the effort. I would like to work to develope this 'framwork' for preserving freedom and anynonimity as future technologies
emirge.Maybe a scoring system, or a certification along with a massive database of doccumentation on every program that has been found
to degrade anynonominity and privacy. and maybe little .pdf's or booklets about "20 things to do to make your windows a clean secure version"
There has got to be an easy way to get ---------REAL-------- info about this subject out the the masses, and in doing so, shut down the future
efforts to invade privacy...
How much longer will linux be spyware free ? When will linux get beat to hell by popups and things like that ?
What year does people start targeting linux for bad things ? How can we stop it before it begins ?
how can we preserve our future ? the government cannot stop spam. how can they insure our privacy ?.... Hell how can they prove to us that
they are not invading our privacy ?

There has got to be some cool concepts out there to create more privacy.
maybe a new networking protocall ?
Maybe a type of firewall that dosent use tcp/ip... but some other technology ?
Maybe the dude who made proxy workbench can make a new program that shows you all your ip traffic real time in a cool graphical way.
this way you could see if there is a secret little packet going to microsoft ... or someone else.

Good Deal !
Both of them look good.

Keep more coming !
There has to be a way that I can collaborate with others (techies) to help create a program or process or system
that anyone can use to 'lock down their network' and computers from information gatherers.

Has anyone heard about the privacy and security of windows xp svs pak2 ?
ALL My buddies say that they have all heard bad things about it having microsoft spyware in it.
but they all said that it does help against problems too.  They have been working like dogs
to get it ready.
