Podcast: The “cyber-fraud” of cloaked websites

In a podcast interview with humanrightseurope, Jessie Daniels, an American educator and anti-racism activist based in New York, discusses the emerging threat of cloaked websites.

She explains that techniques used by such websites, which deliberately disguise the purpose of the material they publish, are steadily moving beyond the extremist fringe.

“The threat is very real in terms of undermining values of racial equality and social justice,” she says. “It’s a kind of cyber crime which is not that different from fraud.”
