         Will SearchJacking and CookieJacking be how Russia wins the 2020 election

 

November 2019: The plumbing of the internet  has allowed massive opportunity for hackers to secure and misdirect users, it is clear that the solution is not to have 50 attorney generals attempt to fix it, but we must use the resources of the US Govt to come up with a clear Federal approach — EU did it, we can too!   Setting the 50 attorney generals on the case brings to mind the Keystone Cops:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m53jnZQP32g

 

By Mitchell P. Davis – CEO of The Privacy Rights Council. With Searchjacking, hackers can get people to land on bogus pages, where malicious cookies can be placed on the viewer's computer. 

 

Then, with CookieJacking, the hackers, as they control the computers they have invaded, can identify the computers and with a tally of the cookies from the great number of hosted sites know demographically who the viewers are and how their politics lean.   Although I don't know if Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh place cookies on viewer's computer, it should be clear that those computers would not be a very good place for Bernie Sanders to advertise on — But conversely, it could be a good place to promote the Pizzagate controversy  — https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pizzagate_conspiracy_theory 

 

Frankly, most computer users have no clue as to how many cookies are placed on their computers, nor how hackers can use them. But the ad networks know and they know the correlation of how all the cookies fit into a multidimensional Venn diagram.

And, the hackers know. They may not know the personal names of each viewer, but by tracking the cookies on a computer they know the correlation of viewers and can target ads based on whose sites they visited.  If they liked Rush Limbaugh they may also have an Alex Jones cookie and be a total deplorable.  But if there is a cookie from NPR, maybe they can be converted.

https://twitter.com/RightsCouncil  where we explain and advocate for a national privacy standard for the USA. Maybe not like GDPR in the European Union, but at least a standard so both users and providers can be guided by Uncle Sam and not the 50 Attorney Generals of the states. EU did it right by having their policies cover all of the Eurozone.

https://twitter.com/SearchJacking You'll find our Twitter feed with lots of posts on searchjacking.

 There is a clear and present danger to every American from this massive breach of security that has opened the door for the hackers to influence us.  I don't know how to fix it, but 50 attorney generals is the wrong team to send in.
