How Your ISP Will Take Six Strikes At Suspected Pirates [Pictures]

first_imgThe new Six Strikes anti-piracy program major ISPs rolled out last week — officially known as the Copyright Alert System — is geared toward catching those allegedly pirating copyrighted movies and games and, well, inconveniencing them until they stop. It’s framed as an educational tool, but given that the participating Internet service providers are bound by no unifying or mandatory rules, there’s a degree of uncertainty as to exactly what you can expect should you pop up on your ISP’s anti-piracy radar.Wonder no more. Here’s a handy graphic that outlines exactly what we know about how the five major ISPs in the U.S. plan to use the system and how it will affect your Internet use. (Let us know what you think in comments.) Also, following the graphic: How Six Strikes may get you hacked. What Could Possibly Go Wrong?There’s a lot of ambiguity about what happens after six strikes, and neither the ISPs nor the Center for Copyright Information (CCI) have clarified what consequences await customers who get that far. Daniel Nazer, a staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, told me that “Strike Seven” might simply amount to Big Copyright hauling alleged infringers into court.But there are other big problems. Nazer, for instance, argues that the system’s pop-ups and alerts could easily provide cover for hackers to impersonate ISPs in order to seed malware and launch phishing attacks. “Given the scale of this and the kind of ways they’re looking to contact their customers with emails and browser locks, it may be a particularly attractive target for malware,” Nazer told me.The open-source development blog FunnyMonkey calls Six Strikes “the best phishing opportunity ever” and “a gift to people looking to steal credit card information and other personal information.” Too bad the CCI’s Web site is silent on the risk of would-be phishers impersonating or hijacking its alerts.Lead image modified from this image via Flickr user patersor, CC 2.0Infographic courtesy of Neo Mammalian Studios A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#ISP#piracy#privacy#security#Six Strikes 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Related Posts adam popesculast_img read more

Panama Canal Cheniere Working to Increase LNG Transits

first_imgzoom The Panama Canal Authority is working towards increasing the number of LNG vessels that can transit the Neopanamax locks in a day.The canal is bolstering its capacity amid the anticipated growth of natural gas exports from the United States, which is likely to increase LNG transits by 50 percent by September, according to Cheniere Energy.Representatives of the U.S. LNG exporter and the Panama Canal Authority, led by Administrator Jorge L. Quijano, met this week to discuss the waterway’s growing LNG vessel segment and opportunities for future growth.Cheniere has become the largest LNG user of the canal with 62 transits made in 2017.“The Panama Canal and the LNG industry are, together, going through a learning curve. Cheniere is confident in the Panama Canal’s capabilities to adapt in addressing the needs of the growing LNG sector. The success of the Panama Canal is essential to the satisfaction of Cheniere’s customers and to the LNG industry as a whole,” Eric Bensaude, Managing Director, Commercial Operations and Asset Optimization for Cheniere, said.When the expanded canal was inaugurated in June 2016, it opened the waterway up to 90 percent of the global LNG fleet and allowed LNG producers in the United States to ship natural gas to Asia for the first time.Since then, the canal’s Neopanamax locks have transited more than 280 LNG vessels, and industry experts expect traffic to continue to rise steadily, according to the canal’s authority.“The meetings with Cheniere allowed us to hear about customers’ experience transiting the Neopanamax locks first-hand, and to collaborate on ways we can continue meeting this growing demand from the LNG industry,” Administrator Quijano said.In line with current levels of traffic, the Panama Canal offers one reservation slot per day for LNG vessels.However, two fully loaded vessels have transited the canal in a day when necessary and, according to Panama Canal’s Authority, two-LNG-transit days have become ever more frequent amid traffic scheduling optimization.“The Panama Canal is also offering more flexibility for LNG bookings so exporters can opt for the Canal route even if that was not the original plan. As expectations for growing LNG shipments materialize, the Panama Canal is already working towards significantly increasing the number of LNG vessels that can transit the Neopanamax locks in a day,” the canal authority said.last_img read more
