Dell Tech Support Swipes Nude Pics From PC
Digital Privacy

So it looks like it's not only Geek Squad staffers that scour customers' computers for free porn. A woman in California has recently gone public with claims that she not only watched as a Dell tech support worker downloaded nude pics of her remotely, but that he also set up a website featuring the photos. Oh, and he used her Dell credit card to buy stuff for another woman.

The woman called Dell support after some "personal pictures" she'd stored on her new Dell PC appeared to have disappeared from her hard drive. "I couldn't find them on my computer and that made me nervous," she said.

She was connected to a Dell tech in Mumbai, India, who asked if he could access her computer remotely, which she agreed to. "I trusted him," she explained. "I trusted him because he was a Dell technician and I don't like the cyberworld, you're so vulnerable."

But that's when, she alleges, she watched as the Dell employee not only found the photos, but downloaded them onto his own computer. Says the woman, "I'm totally convinced. I watched him take the pictures out of my e-mail. I watched him."

Not long after her call with Dell, those same photos popped up online.

At this point, you'd think she would have gotten a lawyer involved, but the woman continued to communicate with the Dell tech. In a head-scratcher of a twist, he talked her into shipping him a new Dell laptop so he could "work on her case" from home.

Says the woman:

“And I'm telling myself, my conscience is talking to me saying, 'Tara, don't send this. What are you doing? Are you crazy?' I sent it anyways because I really believed in this guy. I really had faith that he was protecting my dignity.

But wait -- it gets stranger.

Apparently, the California customer wasn't the only woman the Dell dude was chatting with online. In fact, on Valentine's Day he admitted to having fallen in love with a customer from Tennessee.

And he he must have been so blinded by his love that he used the California woman's Dell credit card to order $800 in Dell computer gear for the his Tennessee sweetheart.

The tech admitted the thievery in an e-mail from his official Dell account. "You're my true friend," he wrote. "I am sorry accidentally I charged your Dell account but I will pay. I don't want to lose my job. It was a mistake which happened with me."

According to the woman, Dell has been unresponsive to her complaints. They also did not reply to a request for comment from the ABC affiliate that first aired the story.

The woman says she has contacted an attorney and is considering legal action against Dell

Should Online Dating Sites Be Required To Do Background Checks?
Digital Privacy

Almost anyone who has ever visited -- let alone actually joined -- an online dating site knows going in, or quickly learns, to take everything they read and see with a grain of salt. A really, really big grain of salt. But the recent case of a convicted killer, awaiting trial for yet another murder, who posted a profile on Match.com has gotten some people talking about adding regulations to these sites.

Online dating professionals say that many users join these sites, especially pay sites, under the misguided assumption that everyone they meet isn't a creepy killer.

Says someone from WomanSavers.com:

I can understand why daters are getting a false sense of security -- they're paying a fee to be on their site.


Meanwhile, folks like the above-mentioned convict troll these sites, never mentioning their multiple homicides, or even the fact that their pictures are four years old and have been photoshopped to death.

In 2008, New Jersey passed a law that requires dating sites that don't do criminal background checks to prominently disclose this fact on the site.

One analyst thinks background checks are going to soon be a demand from the people that spend over $800 million this year on online dating sites:

If clients demand better screening, or screening in and of itself, then operators will have to deliver that... This is a very competitive industry, and service is something that stands out.


Meanwhile, a lawyer who represents some dating sites says that background checks and legislated regulation gets into murky legal territory:

Should that individual be forever prohibited from engaging in romantic relations using a Web site? There are so many shades of gray that it would be difficult for online dating sites to come up with a blanket policy.


Where do you come down on this? Would you be more willing to join a site that does a criminal background check on its members?

Match made in hell: Dating services may not do criminal checks

NSA Document Sheds Light on Honeynets
Digital Privacy

A 605-page NSA document from 2004 reads like a listing of the pros and cons for a huge array of defensive and counterintelligence approaches and technologies that an entity might adopt in defending its networks. There is a key section on deception technologies that discusses the use of honeynet technology to learn more about attackers’ methods, as well as the potential legal and privacy aspects of using honeynets.
