The CIA Freedom of Information electronic reading room

Interesting read. Newspapers have been pulling the Finnish section here, though with the suggested (and widely condemned) car/fuel taxation reform I expect that we don't see too much of it.

Hmmm, I really have been out of the 40k loop for a while, 'cause I don't recognize all of those vehicles.  The Leman Russ tanks are easy, but some of those others below it not as much.  I don't think they are Baneblades, because I think those variants are in the middle right.  I could be wrong, though.

This month, University of Washington researchers will present Exploring ADINT: Using Ad Targeting for Surveillance on a Budget — or — How Alice Can Buy Ads to Track Bob at the Workshop on Privacy in the Electronic Society in Dallas; the paper details a novel way that stalkers and other low-level criminals can accomplish state-grade surveillance on the cheap with targeted ad-purchases.

The attack relies on the fact that major “Demand Side Platform” ad brokers like Google Adwords allow you to target an ad to a specific place and a specific person. By placing ads that only get served if a target is on a given block, the attacker can trace the target’s movements in space and time. Ad networks also allow attackers to enumerate the apps installed on the target’s device and retrieve sensitive demographic data.

Variations on the technique allow attackers to count the number of people in a given room who have a gay hookup app – or an app that reminds Muslims about daily prayers and orients them to Mecca.

For $1000 or less, attackers can conduct surveillance of the sort that costs states millions.
