Facebook Black Lives Matter

The CEO of Facebool Mark Zuckerberg has issued a stringent memo to all of his staff members to not deface the  “Black Lives Matter” movement wall that serves as a dry-erase message board at the company’s headquarters in California.

The signature wall has changed into a graffiti war where employees has crossed out  “Black Lives Matter” and has instead written”All Lives Matter”  at company’s Menlo Park headquarter, said Gizmodo.

The “Black Lives Matter” is an international movement which was started by African-American community  against the racial profiling and police brutality experienced by the community and against violence towards black people.
The movement was began in US  in 2013, with the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter on social media after the acquittal of police official George Zimmerman in the shooting case of African-American teen Trayvon Martin.

After the death of two African Americans — Michael Brown in Ferguson and Eric Garner in New York City 2014 “Black Lives Matter” movement further spreaded.
“I was already disappointed by this disrespectful behaviour before, but after my communication I consider this malicious as well,” Zuckerberg said in the memo.
“We’ve never had guidelines or rules for people who can write on our walls. We expect everyone to behave in respectful manner with each other,” he added.
I hope and motivate people to be a part of   “Black Lives Matter” movement   and educate themselves about it on March 3-4 in [email protected] hall, the 31-year-old Facebook founder said.
According to him, there are certain matters affecting the African-American community in the US, followed from a history of oppression and racism.
“Black lives matter”simply asking about the justice which the black community also deserves, it does not mean that others do not.
The crossing out of “Black Lives Matter”  suggests the clamping of movement. Facebook should be a platform where everybody is treated with respect,” said Zuckerberg.
“This is extremely distressing experience for the black community and aslo for the entire Facebook community, and now we are investigating the current incidents,” he said.

MTNL chairman Purwar

New Delhi, Sep 19 : State-run telecom operator MTNL has submitted a set of assets for monetisation through the framework of the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (DIPAM), which comes under the Finance Ministry.

The assets proposed for sale include land, staff quarters and telephone exchange in Mumbai, said Anurag Thakur, Minister of State for Finance and Corporate Affairs, in reply to a question in the Lok Sabha.

“MTNL has submitted a set of assets for monetisation through the DIPAM Framework…. No property in Delhi is presently under monetisation through the DIPAM Framework,” he said.

He informed the Lok Sabha that international property consultants have been appointed for end-to-end transaction advice on monetisation of these properties.

Noting that the asset monetisation process is a complex one involving multiple stakeholders and agencies, he said that a specific time frame for the completion of these monetisation transactions cannot be defined at present.

The value at which the assets would be monetised would depend on the feasibility of monetisation of the asset, the monetisation model and the market conditions prevailing at the time of monetisation, Thakur said, adding that it would be difficult to anticipate the sale proceeds presently.

Mozilla has fixed a vulnerability in the popular Firefox browser that can be exploited by hackers to hijack Firefox for Android browsers on the same WiFi network and send users to malicious sites, urging the people to install the latest browser update.

The bug was found in Firefox SSDP component by Chris Moberly, an Australian security researcher working for GitLab, reports ZDNet.

The Simple Service Discovery Protocol (SSDP) is a simple protocol designed to solve the problem of service discovery over a local network.

“Any Android owner using a Firefox browser to navigate the web during this kind of attack would have his mobile browser hijacked and taken to a malicious site, or forced to install a malicious Firefox extension,” the report mentioned.

The bug has been fixed in Firefox 79. Mozilla said users should update as soon as possible to Firefox v79 for Android to remain safe.

Attackers could leverage exploits to take over outdated routers, and then spam a company’s internal network and force employees to re-authenticate on phishing pages.

The new Firefox for Android now offers Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP), providing a better web experience.

“The revamped browsing app comes with our highest privacy protections ever – on by default. ETP keeps numerous ad trackers at bay and out of the users’ business,” the company said last month.

The Enhanced Tracking Protection automatically blocks many known third-party trackers, by default, in order to improve user privacy online. Private Mode adds another layer for better privacy on device level, it added.
