Open Source Audio Editor Audacity Has Become 'Spyware'

Slashdot - Mon, 2021-07-05 23:00
Anyone deciding to download the free and open-source audio editor Audacity is being warned that the software may now be classified as spyware due to recent updates to its privacy policy. From a report: Audacity has been around for over 21 years and classes as the world's most popular audio editing software. On April 30, the Muse Group acquired Audacity with the promise that the software would "remain forever free and open source." However, as FOSS Post reports, last week the Audacity privacy policy page was updated and introduced a number of personal data collection clauses. The data collected includes OS version and name, user country based on IP address, the CPU being used, data related to Audacity error codes and crash reports, and finally "Data necessary for law enforcement, litigation and authorities' requests (if any)." The personal data collected can be shared with Muse Group employees, auditors, advisors, legal representatives and "similar agents," potential company buyers, and "any competent law enforcement body, regulatory, government agency, court or other third party where we believe disclosure is necessary (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, or (ii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights."

In Private Conversation, Hackers Behind Ransomware Outbreak Lower Demand To $50 Million

Slashdot - Mon, 2021-07-05 22:07
The hackers who have claimed responsibility for an international ransomware outbreak have lowered their asking price in a private conversation with a cybersecurity expert, something he said may be a sign the group was having trouble monetizing their massive breach. From a report: The REvil ransomware gang, also known as Sodinokibi, is publicly demanding $70 million to restore the data it's holding ransom after their data-scrambling software affected hundreds of small and medium businesses across a dozen countries - including schools in New Zealand and supermarkets in Sweden. But in a conversation with Jack Cable of the cybersecurity-focused Krebs Stamos Group, one of the gang's affiliates said he could sell a "universal decryptor" for all the victims for $50 million. Cable told Reuters he managed to get through to the hackers after obtaining a cryptographic key needed to log on to the group's payment portal. Reuters was subsequently able to log on to the payment portal and chat with an operator who said the price was unchanged at $70 million "but we are always ready to negotiate."
