RIM Ready To Help UK Police In Tracking Rioters

BlackBerry maker Research In Motion(RIM) has offered to assist UK Police in tracking down rioters after riots broke out in London and other cities. Officially, RIM has not disclosed how it will help cops but we are pretty sure that this assistance will involve access to its BlackBerry Messenger service.

The riots broke out in London after police officers shot a black resident by the name of Mark Duggan, who was a suspect in a gun violence investigation.

People gathered to lead a peaceful march from Broadwater Farm to Tottenham police station demanding justice for Duggan family. The violence broke out after an alleged heated argument between a teenager and a police officer took place.

This offer by RIM is a genuine thing done by the Canadian giant in this situation. It will reduce the time to track down rioters and looters who wreaked havoc in London.

We at Technogazette strongly condemn any act of violence like this. It just shows that how short tempered people have become in this era.

People forgot the real cause of their march which was to demand justice for Duggan family. But justice cannot be achieved by looting and damaging property of innocent people. Protesters should have thought that someone lost a husband, a father, a son and a brother and by committing such cowardly thing, they were tarnishing his memory.

Our prayers are with Duggan family and everyone who suffered any kind of loss in these riots.

Italian Cyber Police Attacked By Anonymous And Lulzsec

It appears that hacker groups Anonymous and Lulzsec have taken a pledge to attack each and every security agency of the world. After FBI and CIA, they have now attacked Italian Cyber Police’s website and published their confidential data on their website.

The Cyber Security Unit admitted that they’ve been attacked but they didn’t comment whether any sensitive data has been stolen. On the other side, hackers claimed that they have had access to very sensitive data and in order to prove this, they published a series of documents as it is a custom of Lulzsec and Anonymous to release all the data they get access to.

The hackers claim that they’ve stolen 8 MB of sensitive data which contains Italian relations with Australia, Belarus, Egypt, Russia and Ukraine.

It should be noted that this attack come immediately after Anonymous and Lulzsec promised to make the security agencies pay back after they raided and arrested several Anonymous members.

Lulzsec announced last month that it would discontinue its hacking activities after an arrest was maid in UK. But it has continued its alliance with Anonymous which is known as AntiSec(Anti Security).

The increased number of cyber attacks by these two groups have put security agencies in turmoil. The total strength of these groups remains unknown. They’ve targeted every big name ranging from Sony, Nintendo, Apple Inc. to the security agencies like CIA and FBI.

When will they stop?
