Facebook Announces “NudeLock”, Offers “NSA Level” Encryption for nude pictures

basedheisenberg:

the-electric-city-chronicles:

Hot off of the heels of the great “Celebrity Nude Release of 2014”, also dubbed by some as “The Fappening”, Facebook CEO and Icthyo-American Mark Zuckerberg announced today a new app boasting an advanced and comprehensive cyber security suite dedicated to protecting the privacy of horny internet users everywhere.

Dubbed, “NudeLock”, the app promises a level of encryption rumored to rival “most NSA databanks”, as the young fish-like CEO put it, adding that “the app will also run facial recognition software dedicated to ensuring we can identify people’s nudes quicker upon a  breach” and let them know earlier what to expect at the dinner table that night.

Zuckerburg added that a comprehensive database of nudes would be kept by the app, sparking fears of a “goldmine” for hackers. Zuckerburg responded by saying that the database was necessary to ensure the privacy and security of everyone using the app, stating that the “NSA ‘like’ security measures” implemented into the hack should absolve most people of their worries, a comment that was met by chortles from the two bulky men in Government suits standing behind Zuckerberg during his announcement.

"NudeLock" is expected to hit the app store in the early Holiday Season of 2014.

I’d like to take this point in time to announce the launch of my new satire news blog, "The Electric City Chronicles".

Its first humorous article is already generating rave reactions from readers, such as:

-BULLSHIT.

-LMAO JUST MAKE IT EASY FOR THEM TO SEE YOUR ASSHOLE WHY DON’T YA

-Yes, let’s trust Facebook, aka the NSA’s buttbuddy, with our nudes. What could possibly go wrong? Also, the fappening?Could internet trolls get any more nasty?

This was in competition with the Republic F-105, which won the Tactical Air Command contract. TAC preferred the internal weapons bay and more orthodox air intake placement of the F-105, as opposed to the “over the head” intake and conformal weapons carriage of the F-107. Ironically, the internal weapons bay was rarely used for ordinance by the F-105 when it flew over Vietnam.

On Aug. 2, Department of Homeland Security officials revealed that the agency’s contractor for conducting security clearance background checks had been hacked, and an unknown number of DHS employees’ personal data from those investigations had been stolen—potentially by a state-sponsored hacker. Now the DHS has a handle on how many records were stolen from contractor USIS: at least 25,000.
The Associated Press cites information from an unnamed DHS official, who spoke with the service under the condition of anonymity. “Homeland Security will soon begin notifying employees whose files were compromised and urge them to monitor their financial accounts,” the Associated Press’ Joce Sterman reported.
USIS is, as the Washington Post reported, the largest contract provider of background investigations to the federal government. The attack on USIS comes after the March revelation that the US Office of Personnel Management had been attacked by hackers based in China, potentially giving them access to the personal information of millions of government employees—though OPM offficials say that no personal data appeared to have been taken in the attack before it was detected.
The US Computer Emergency Response Team (US-CERT), which is part of DHS, is currently investigating the USIS breach, as are the FBI and other federal authorities. USIS was already under fire from Congress, and faces a federal whistleblower lawsuit over the alleged “dumping” of more than 600,000 background checks for security clearances—marking as complete checks that were only partially conducted. USIS was responsible for the background checks for Edward Snowden, and for Aron Alexis—the man responsible for the shootings at the Navy Yard in Washington, DC last year.
