Some Congress Members Question Whether Homeland Security Overstepped Its Authority

Some members of Congress are questioning the legality of Homeland Security seizing domains and taking down URLs accused of copyright infringement, CNET reports.

Among the concerns are that Homeland Security is “seizing the domain names of websites whose actions and content are presumed to be lawful, protected speech,” some Congress members said in a letter to the U.S. Attorney General.

Since 2010, nearly 700 domain names have been seized under “Operation In Our Sites,” launched in 2010, according to CNET.

More than a year ago, the government removed a hip-hop Web site, saying Dajaz1 linked to copyrighted songs.

But CNET reported that the link did not infringe on copyrights, CNET reported.

Hackers Claim FBI Is Monitoring More Than 1 Million Apple Users

The hacker group Anonymous announced it has stolen information from an FBI laptop computer that carried information on more than 1 million iPhone and iPad users, Forbes reports.

While Forbes was unable to verify the authenticity of the data, writer Andy Greenberg said the information “does seem to be an enormous list of 40-character strings made up of numbers and letters A through F,” just like Apple’s unique device identifier numbers used to identify individual users of iPhone and iPads.

Also included in that information are user names, cellphone numbers, addresses, texts and other personal information, according to Forbes.

It could mean Apple is supplying the data, that the FBI is getting the information on its own or something else entirely, according to technology news site, Gizmodo.

Whatever the case, the FBI will have a lot of questions to answer, Forbes reported.

An ICE agent whose house in Vermont was raided over firearms has retired as investigators continue to study the case, the Burlington Free Press reports.

Special Agent Richard Bernholz stepped down from his federal job Friday, about 13 months after ATF seized more than 155 firearms from his home in Franklin County, according to the Free Press.

Federal authorities have declined to comment on the investigation, which appears to have been sparked by a gun that Bernholz used in a shooting in Massachusetts, the Free Press reported.

Since October 2010, the longtime federal agent had been assigned to the Homeland Security Investigations Division of ICE.
