Kaspersky calls for end to net anonymity

[Q] That's it? What's wrong with the design of the Internet?

[Kaspersky] There's anonymity. Everyone should and must have an
identification, or Internet passport. The Internet was designed not for
public use, but for American scientists and the U.S. military. That was
just a limited group of people--hundreds, or maybe thousands. Then it
was introduced to the public and it was wrong to introduce it in the
same way.

I'd like to change the design of the Internet by introducing
regulation--Internet passports, Internet police and international
agreement--about following Internet standards. And if some countries
don't agree with or don't pay attention to the agreement, just cut them off.


Maybe it's time to call for an end to Kaspersky's influence in computer

And then we can go after the folk who mistake "loose" for "lose".
And if we follow up by banning the people who add in an apostrophe
when using the possessive form of "it[']s", we'll have lots
and lots of spare capacity...

Getting to be?   Bill, I've been a grumpy old man for at least five or
more years - long before I turned 65.

Agreed - and if you think I'm advocating such, you are REALLY
mis-reading my posts. Passports/licenses are not the solution and
won't work any more than existing anti-mal-ware prevents bots and
zombies. The userbase wouldn't stand for it anyway.  You might notice
Jon Postal's RFC0706 from 1975.  Slightly similar to today, no?   What
I was referring to is the fact that the existing system isn't dealing
with the existing problems.   At one time, network entities at least
made a token effort to control abuse.  But as one example, I've given
up on sending mail to the RFC2142 'abuse@' role account more than five
years ago. It's a waste of my admin time, and if you're lucky and your
mail doesn't bounce (either "no such user", or "mailbox full") you may
get a canned response from an ignore-bot that does absolutely nothing.
I had problems with abuse (mainly zombie/bot stuff) from three '.edu's
two of which had limited but legitimate reasons to connect to some of
our servers. Complaints were ignored until a firewall block rule got
the attention of someone at two of them. The abuse was stopped in
less than a day, and we then restored limited access. Why did it take
that much work on our part?

Most entities have dropped the abuse role - partially because the bean
counters see it as an expense with no redeeming points, partially
because the majority of the complaints tend to be childish in nature
(news://alt.os.linux.ubuntu is a classic - and comp.os.linux.misc is
not far behind), or either lack details or the details point elsewhere.
Who is to blame for that?  Will it get fixed?  Not likely.  Sure I'm
getting less spam mail from zombies, mainly because I've stopped
accepting connections from residential ISPs and anonymous mail
services.    Pity about the contents of the bath water, but corporate
approves the trade-off.

which I don't think is going to happen either.  The sheep keep buying
the crap, and there is no incentive for MS to make anything better.

No, I'd rather see provider themselves enforce what they may laughingly
call their terms of service.  I suspect that's not going to happen
either, because of fear that they could be sued, or that the bean
counters would be horrified at any possible loss of potential or
actual revenues.

Go fuck yourself, Kasp, Internet anonymity is the backbone of the
international rebellion against tyranny and George Bushit(e)s.

Re: Kaspersky calls for end to net anonymity

 [Kaspersky] There's anonymity. Everyone should and must have an
 identification, or Internet passport.

Crap! - There is nothing wrong with the design of the internet.
Remember...it was originally designed for sharing information.
And, what is the problem about sharing information? Well, I guess only
if you have something to hide that may be a problem. But to the rest
of us - not. And security can also be born of "access to information",
as what you do not know can and most likely will affect you...

Just take a look at the Gary McKinnon case - that has been going on
for 7 years now.

And ask yourself [Kaspersky]  is there any resemblance to nazi like
behaviour by the political elements?
Unless you advocate this type of tyranny - go fuck yourself
