Headline: Will #SearchJacking and #CookieJacking be how Russia wins the 2020 election?

Washington, DC USA – November 13, 2019- As the plumbing of the internet allows 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 50 attorney generals on privacy issues brings to mind the Keystone Cops:

As emphasized by 'The Privacy Right Council,' 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.

There is a clear and present danger to every American from this massive breach of security that has opened the door for hackers to influence us.  I don't know how to fix it, but 50 attorney generals is the wrong team to send in, because it is important to work with highly-competent individuals when dealing with online privacy issues.

With Searchjacking, hackers can get people to visit bogus pages to store malicious cookies on a viewer's computer. Then, with CookieJacking, hackers control the computers they have invaded, and they can identify the computers with a tally of the cookies from the great number of hosted sites.

Hackers know demographically, their online audience 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.

Also, hackers know they may not get the personal names of every internet user, 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 for instance, 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 is a Twitter feed we use that enables us to explain and advocate for a national privacy standard for the USA. Maybe not like GDPR in the European Union, but at least a standard should be provided. 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. Other Twitter feeds that supports our effort are; https://twitter.com/SearchJacking and https://twitter.com/CookieJacking

There is difference between the "old days" and "today." Mail changed from snail mail to email — the primary port of entry changed from a mail slot to a computer.  So just stop to think about how it worked then, in the 1960's, in a secure US Post Office system — to now the wild-west of the year 2020 internet, where information can be used for both good and cruel acts. This is exactly what The Privacy Right Council desires to be thoroughly addressed.
