  Securing Your Sites and Systems in a Military Grade Cyber Warfare Environment

https://www.techrepublic.com/article/is-the-intel-management-engine-a-backdoor/

October 17, 2017 - Operating Servers and JAR2 com in Russia for the last 14 years has been a challenge and sometimes it has been all out warfare so I would like to share some of my knowledge and give you some of the main points I use in this environment to secure yourself against military and government grade hacker attacks, CIA/NSA malware/spyware installs and the like.

1. Passwords and Accounts

a) Due to weaknesses still in existence in encryption and decryption programs passwords over 27 characters can not be cracked. The threshold for determining password length even for the NSA is 25/27. After 27 it is impossible for them to determine if your password is 28 or 52 or even 102 therefore without knowing the password length there is no way to crack it. DO NOT USE words, names or even formulas in passwords. Use a random series of upper and lowercase letters, numbers and symbols and do not use the same password for different machine accounts. Do not use your machine account passwords for websites or even your phone. One way to recall and generate a random password is to use a figure on your keyboard although eventfully any random series will be learned by rote. Do not save your passwords in a file on your computer and do not keep them where someone may get access to them. Even your better half. On the web use different passwords for all site and services. This can be difficult with the number of passwords people need to use today but a simple method of at least choosing for example, a prefix or suffix on a memorized random series of over 27 character will help you. Some sites will not let you make a password of over 27 characters. This is why and these sites you should never trust with your sensitive data.  

b) For Windows: Never use the root Admin account to do anything except when installing your new operating system and drivers. After your fresh install always create a Power User account and always use it to install programs and serf the net. You can go hyper paranoid and go down to a user or guest level account but that will limit funtionality and cancels out the next point. Disable the guest account on the computer. Disable all of the Microsoft accounts and remote service accounts. On my work computer I have only two active accounts and the two associated groups. The renamed default Admin Account and the Power User account and everything works fine. XP and Windows 7 have attempted to obfuscate these basic security parameters by installing multiple services that do the same things. For example they introduced the Security Polices plug-in and the local users and accounts and then the Security Center which in certain cases cancel each other out or make any changes in one uselss, maintaining the backdoors for Microsoft. Then there are dozens of built in registry key and switches that you will have to change to completely secure yor system. That is what it is all about. Micorsoft Windows is the greatest spy tool every developed in the world. Within its hidden code are dozens of backdoors as we have even found out is true for INTEL hardware.  

2. Installing and Updating secure and locked down Windows Systems: Is it possible to secure Windows?

a) The highest Windows you will be able to safely keep running in Russia would be Windows 7 Ultimate service pack 1 and you will never be able to safely update. Why? Microsoft is running under the anti-Russian US Sanctions regime. MS has updates that will blue screen and kill your system and make it unsavable requiring a complete fresh install. This includes a documented video driver upgrade that blue screens your machine and deletes all restore points.

b) Installing - If you had 7 you will have to delete and format the original root partition. It hides programs and code that allow for root level access to your machine using built in MS user accounts (when up and running delete or disable all such accounts) and BIOS connectivty though the INTEL installed spy chip accesible through BIOS or other methods detailed above. BEFORE you install Windows 7 make sure you have all of your drivers on seperate media. Air gap your system and disconnect all possible wireless access while you Install 7, this includes your Wi-Fi and all wireless devices that you may connect to. This includes wireless keyboards, mice, printers and everything and anything else else that would allow for access to your machine. Of course a virtual machine would also give you an added layer. MS7 run in a LINUZ box under a virtual machine is probably the safest way to install 7 but this is extremely time consuming and a real pain in the ass to run under.

d) Updating

WhatsApp, Cognitive Dissonance and What The Snow-den Op Didn't Tell You

http://www.jar2.com/Topics/Snowden.html

http://www.jar2.com/Articles/2016/July/The_Truth_About_Crimea.html

http://www.jar2.biz/Downloads/Books/Full_Spectrum_Dominance.zip

January 24, 2019 - During the lesson someone mentioned Operation Snowden and Cognitive Dissonance. If you are really interested in the issue and Cyber Security then I suggest you read the above articles and essays to study up on the subject. Cheers and good reading and listening.   

Operation Snow-Den: A Limited Hangout: You have nothing to fear?

Proponents of the Snowden and WikiLeaks fairy tales and those who continue to use WhatsApp, Skype, Facebook and other "benign" Internet applications and platforms even after they are proven to be CIA/NSA and Corporation sponsored and connected, have become the majority of users on the Internet. These are individuals who would fall into a REX84 Yellow category and are entirely useful to the Empire and the New World Order. These are the individuals who firmly believe their own misinformed misconceptions and are the hardest to convince because of their Cognitive Dissonance. Normally I stay away from engaging such individuals, many of whom I classify as Trolls and sycophants, as their belief in their own correctness makes it impossible to reach them, but since the topic was brought up during a lesson in a public way I will attempt to explain just some of the ways that the US Military Industrial Intelligence Complex uses your benign information and Cognitive Dissonance to control and manipulate you. 

To understand the Snow-Den and WikiLeaks Operations you must first understand and comprehend two things: One, what a Limited Hangout is and two, what Full Spectrum Dominance is. Once you understand those concepts and how they are used against you, the innocent user, then perhaps your Cognitive Dissonance may fall away and you may be open to seeing the real truth of the machine.

I have written extensively on these two topics in the past so I will not go into great detail here, instead giving you a short description and recommend that you study the subject further.

A Limited Hangout: A Favorite Tool of Clandestine Professionals

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limited_hangout

Since many of you trust WikiPedia (another CIA backed project) here is their description: A limited hangout or partial hangout is, according to former special assistant to the Deputy Director of the Central Intelligence Agency Victor Marchetti, "spy jargon for a favorite and frequently used gimmick of the clandestine professionals. When their veil of secrecy is shredded and they can no longer rely on a phony cover story to misinform the public, they resort to admitting—sometimes even volunteering—some of the truth while still managing to withhold the key and damaging facts in the case. The public, however, is usually so intrigued by the new information that it never thinks to pursue the matter further."

The Snow-Den Operation is the classic definition of a Limited Hangout and every Counter Intelligence Officer knows this. They also know that he is an active CIA Covert Operations Officer and that he never worked for the NSA but rather used an NSA contractor, Booz Allen Hamilton, to gain access to NSA files to establish his cover in Russia and facilitate his infiltration of the Russian "opposition" and the Russian State in order to carry out and assist with Psychological and Influence Operations against Russia while serving as an "Avatar" for the CIA as a figure with "asylum" which he has never had.  

Sure Snowden helped to further expose programs that we already knew about but it is what he did NOT reveal that makes the Limited Hangout obvious and so insidious. You can read about that below.

Full Spectrum Dominance

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Full-spectrum_dominance

Full-spectrum dominance also known as full-spectrum superiority, is a military entity's achievement of control over all dimensions of the battlespace, effectively possessing an overwhelming diversity of resources in such areas as terrestrial, aerial, maritime, subterranean, extraterrestrial, psychological, and bio- or cyber-technological warfare.

Full spectrum dominance includes the physical battle space; air, surface and sub-surface as well as the electromagnetic spectrum and information space. Control implies that freedom of opposition force assets to exploit the battlespace is wholly constrained.

Full Spectrum Dominance also includes you and your benign devices and all of your activity on-line and in fact in your own computer and the last sentence should be alarming to any and every Russian. The last sentence implies that there must be no competition to the Military Industrial Intelligence Corporate Complex and all of their assets. This means they must have a monopoly on the 'battle space". When you consider that the "battlespace" is in fact your mind and everything you do and come into contact with, allowing the West to possess such a monopoly is pure suicide.  

The "I have done nothing wrong so what do I have to worry about" Argument: What Snow-Den did NOT tell you

For those who follow the above illogical argument I will first start out with a few points covering the methods and the ways in which your data is used and manipulated not only by the Intelligence Agencies of the West but also by the Elites, the Corporations and the Governments that they work in unison with.

Sure in classic Limited Hangout style, Greenberg (Snowden's real name) told you all about NSA programs, which if you believe the fairy tale, he was able to walk out of the most secret billion-dollar Spy Agency with on multiple laptops and thumb drives, but in reality we already knew about these programs. Again in classic Limited Hangout style, what the real secrets are is contained in what was NOT revealed, and this is what they are protecting and why Greenberg was specifically sent to Russia. What is NOT revealed is how these programs are used and what they are designed to do. What was also not revealed was that Greenberg works for the CIA, which attempted to damage the NSA, in an internal turf war for budgetary resources and to dominate in a field they are miles away from the NSA in competing with. 

Greenberg also did not tell you that he worked for the CIA in the area of COVERING UP leaks such as those involving 911 and Birkenfeld, but you are supposed to believe the CIA MOCKINGBIRD media narrative that he is a truther and whistleblower who exposed programs. Nothing of the sort. He is an AVATAR and a plant and an active CIA officer who even tried to sell a CIA Full Surveillance Cross Platform SPY Suite during a Russian election cycle in which the CIA was attempting to remove President Putin and nobody noticed.

First let's discuss the "I did nothing wrong so what do I have to worry about" defense for using the enemies' devices and platforms. After the assassination of Alexander Zaharchenko this should be a very serious issue for anyone using WhatsApp in the Russian space. I absolutely shudder when I see activists, journalists and people connected with the Defense of Donbass casually using WhatsApp and sites like Facebook to communicate. It shows unbelievable ignorance and outright stupidity, especially for me knowing what I know, as it should for any Russian Intelligence officer. The epitome of outright stupidity would be for people involved in security to be using i-phones or apps like WhatsApp, but let's get back to the "I am innocent! So what?" argument.

Full Spectrum Surveillance means they surveil and watch everyone which means even though you may not be doing anything "wrong", according to the CIA or NSA, you may have a friend or family member who is of interest. Wouldn't you feel bad if your father or mother were killed or perhaps you were kidnapped or used against them because you were using WhatsApp? Or perhaps an uncle or a friend or just someone you know. How is this possible you say? Quite simple. Full Spectrum Surveillance means Full Spectrum collection, which means they collect everything about you. "And so what?" You ask? Well.....

Say one person in your phonebook, and it doesn't even matter to the spooks how well you know them, turns out to be a person of interest. Say a few months ago you wrote a message where it appears that this person is fond of you or trusts you. Say the spooks are targetting this person and they decide they want to use you to do so. "So what" you say. Well... If you do not see a problem yet you are brain dead...

Just a Smart Phone

Let's briefly take a look at what Full Spectrum Surveillance can give them. First let's start out with what I have already mentioned. You saved your contact list in WhatsApp or Messenger or Facebook or any of the other "wonderful" services out there on the Web or in the cloud. Now they have a complete social map of whom you know, what you call them in your phonebook, what category they are in and the like. (Note: These exploits are also possible without third party Apps if you have an i-Phone, a Microsoft phone, a Blackberry or any of the other popular phones currently being pushed on the market, many coming straight from the factory with built in NSA backdoors and even NSA chips, hardwired and undetectable.) With a couple clicks they can then pull up every message you sent and every conversation you had with this person (X) including times, length of calls, the actual conversations and with another click, very easy if you are using an i-Phone as they store your cell tower points and now GPS data by default, they know all of your exact physical locations for every one of those messages, calls and conversations and in fact for always.

Identifying all of your contacts and friends again is important in creating social spider webs and mapping diagrams which allow them then to attack and target all of the individuals around a person of interest. In particular someone like Alexander Zaharchenko, who we believe they were able to track and locate after having identified his inner circle and tracking those closest to him.

Next they can pull up all of the photos you store in the cloud and on your phone or in WhatsApp or Facebook and run an analysis which can tell them more than you would think possible, and this is not only by studying the contents of the photos themselves. Photos can give them your height, your likes and dislikes, what you did at the locations you were at, who you met, what your moods are, what you value, and if you take selfies it is even worse. They can tell your financial situation, where and what you have that is valuable, obtain your exact facial coordinates (for facial recognition identification and surveillance), formulate a psychological profile and so on and so forth. If they need too they can turn on your camera when you are a given coordinates and use it to see what is there or who you are meeting or what you are doing or even what the person next to you doing. They can also turn on the microphone and remotely record everything you say or what the people are saying around you. Are you still saying "So what?"? Continue reading...

The real story was about three Americans with asylum in Russia. Not the above piece of shit

Now, I will not tell you everything they can do, not because "they" will not like it, but rather because some of the capabilities are so fantastic that you will not believe me even if I showed you but let's look at a few.

Cameras and microphones

I have already mentioned they can turn the cameras and microphones on and off at will, something most people already know but choose to ignore, and this is one reason that newer phones are being equipped with not only rear viewing cameras but frontal cameras as well. It is not because you were having trouble taking selfies but because most people lie their phones on the backs when they are not in use, thus covering up the cameras. It is when the phones are at rest that the phone is in prime condition to carry out secret surveillance but the NSA could not view anything in the room or area.

Huge Memories and Powerful Processors Hide Their Evil

Back in the old days of Windows NT and Windows 95/98 it was much easier to track and notice when things like nsa.dll (an NSA keystroke sniffer we discovered) attempted to connect to the Internet and send the NSA your data, that was from computers, but today even the most common phone packs more of a punch than any 386, 486 or Pentium I computer connected to a 28.8 modem did! With their high speed Internet, Gbs of RAM and memory and high-speed 4G connections these mini marvels present a perfect surveillance platform for the CIA/NSA and anyone with the technology to harvest the data. The infamous nsa.dll was only about 486 KB in size yet recorded and sent the NSA every keystroke. Users of today's phones would not even notice such a small file sending a pulsed 128 Kb data stream to the NSA or the CIA. X-Keyscore, or whatever the new name is, is just such a program. Thus every password login, message and symbol you type goes to the USA MIIC.

According to certain Black Hats there are literally dozens of such hidden, dual function "dlls" in modern mobile operating systems, with Google and Microsoft being the worst. Currently all major phones host NSA back doors except for Huawei devices, which is why their officials keep getting arrested. Intel and Apple have even provided the NSA with secret spy chips hardwired into their motherboards so the NSA can even access the environment around someone's computer when the computer is off. This has been documented. Since people never turn off their mobile phones the job of the NSA is that much more easier.

When something is free, like Windows 10 or Google's  Android system you have to ask yourself a simple question? Why? These are billion dollar corporations. Where do they get their billions from? The answer is from the CIA and the NSA and the US Government and any other government that wants to surveil you and obtain your data. Google/Android and MS integration into their other "services" is the worst. This is why Android does not allow you access to root and in fact may blacklist your device making Google store and App downloads impossible if you do so. They do not want you finding out about their built in SPYWARE nor do they want you interfering with their surveillance. Microsoft's new licensing agreement even includes clauses allowing them to secretly download your personal files in the background, which means they are already doing this.

GPS Real Time Physical Surveillance

Another area you need to worry about is the full spectrum GPS monitoring that modern devices are capable of. Access to your GPS coordinates can be turned off or physically disabled but again Google and other platforms demand access to your location according to them "to serve you better". This is a patent lie. Do you really want the CIA and NSA knowing where you are all of the time? Knowing where you live, where you work or study, how you travel to work and home, where you shop and relax and who you visit? "No problem I did not do anything wrong", that is what Zaharchenko's inner circle was probably saying. What if you visit your father and he is a "person of interest" for the CIA or the NSA or anyone with access to your data. What if you lead them to him and he is then killed? What if they find out your blood type and need an organ for one of the elites and you fit the bill and they kidnap and kill you and harvest your organs? What if you have children and a Satanic pedophile ring tied to the CIA wants your child and one day they do not come home, ever again? What if they are simply mapping drone strike locations in the event of a war and your friend or boss or company are on the list and you provide them with the coordinates. Now are you getting the bigger picture???? This is already true in America and they want to do the same here in Russia.

As you see the danger is not only from Intelligence Agencies but also from anyone with access to the technology. Human traffickers, Satanic cults and even common robbers, rapists, thieves and killers can locate you if they pay for the right tools and are able to access your data. This can be done very easily and quite cheaply in fact on the Dark Web. Again you may not have done anything wrong but you fit someone's parameter.

Mobile Device Interception, Stalking and Full Spectrum Surveillance

So far I am just mentioning the possibilities and real exploits that are built into modern phones, when these are tied into a full surveillance suite that includes computers, notebooks, home appliances and even vehicles, such as what the "Snowden" figure has offered, the results are staggering.

Still focusing on phones however one of the greatest dangers for you and one of the biggest advantages for the Spooks is that it is possible to hack into your device though wireless connection and remain completely anonymous without having the problem of leaving a physical electronic trace as happens when hacking into an ISDN connected computer. For those who know JAR2 you may recall the DirtBox incidents in Zagreb and the MI6 surveillance of several individuals there who were targetted only because they were in communication with us. 

Compared to an ISDN or Wi-Fi connection due to the existing infrastructure, securing a wireless device connected to a GSM mobile provider is all but impossible and questionable security can only exist if you access the Internet only through Wi-Fi. Strangely enough this is an area no one has thought of securing. GSM providers in Russia do not offer encrypted Internet access so anything you send is open for interception as is true almost everywhere else in the world.  

Fingerprints, Facial Coordinates and Retinal Scans

Again you say "And so what I did nothing wrong!" but let's stop and think for a minute. Hm.... what if I was a Spook and had your fingerprint? I could use several simple tools to copy it onto real world media and then place it anywhere I want, say on the trigger of a gun used in a False Flag terrorist attack and make you the patsy and since you are such a non-doer of anything wrong people would just say you snapped. Sound familiar?

The Internet, Social Media and Real World Tracking

If you use the Internet on your mobile device you are vulnerable in many more ways than you are using a stationary PC or a laptop on a Wi-Fi connection. With modern browsers and intrusive sites and apps which demand access to your GPS, cell tower tracking data, camera, phone book, microphone, photos and even other apps and sites, you are basically simply giving someone somewhere access to your entire life for free and the only person in the equation who is in fact ANONYMOUS is the "analyst" at the NSA or the CIA or GCHQ or the Corporation who is watching you.

Hacking, Spoofing and Cloning the "Internet of Things"

Your innocent little phone can be used to hack into devices around you. For example the NSA and the CIA can use your neighbor's cell phone, though a wall to access your Wi-Fi network or your phone if other wireless connected devices. Using a Wi-Fi router they can then access hardwired devices as well and gain full control of computers, appliances and if you are foolish enough to have a "Smart Home" anything else connected to the network.

Even more horrifying that same phone can then spoof your MAC or in fact use your phone to send messages or even make calls as if they are coming from you. This happened recently in Ukraine with US based CIA operatives using Ukrainian cell phones to call in bomb threats to Russian targets. So if the Spooks decide to set you up they can do so in such a manner very very easily.

If you use Social Media on your phone the exploits available to the Spooks are thousand-fold. Not only can they gain access to all of your accounts and passwords and the like but simply by giving themselves permission through an app to post as you, can takeover your account and do anything whatsoever, including committing crimes and other shenanigans that would be blamed on you and destroy your life, but its okay, after all you did nothing wrong. Right?

The True Evil of Full Spectrum Surveillance, MOCKINGBIRD Media and Social Media Manipulation

To call those who control the Internet Satanic, as did the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, is perhaps an understatement due to the level of the true evil that is really going on. An invention that was supposed to unite and inform and bring the world closer together has been twisted and taken over by lunatics in an insane drive to destroy religions, sovereign states and enslave the world in a Fascist Racist and completely Luciferian New World Order.

The danger is real and present and what is going on in Venezuela is just another example. Countries are being destroyed one after the other all facilitated through the subversive manipulation of information, economies, television and social media. We have watched as every perversion has been normalized in the West and a rogue nation has committed endless acts of Aggressive War killing millions and yet nothing is done and no one is held accountable.

Everything I have warned about is coming true and unfortunately there is no longer anything I can do to stop it. The very definition of Full Spectrum Dominance. The New World Order will soon call forth the REX84 protocols in a "State of Emergency" provoked and enforced by the rise of racist, fascist and devisive forces an brought about by all of the programs Snow-Den failed to tell you about. The world is now in a war. A war of good versus evil.

USA is Involved in Offensive Cyber Espionage - Joseph Fitsanakis.

26 June, 2013 17:55

US is involved in offensive cyber espionage - expert

According to the Chinese state-run newspaper Washington is again playing the victim. This time the evildoer is not Russia but China. And the victim – Washington – is being victimized by cyber espionage, when, in fact, according to the Chinese newspaper, it is the world’s top intelligence power.

"Regarding the issue of network security, the US is such a mincing rascal that we must stop developing any illusions about it" – wrote the Global Times.

On Monday the US Grand Jury indicted five Chinese military officers on charges "they broke into US computers to benefit Chinese companies" in the first ever prosecution by Washington of state actors over cyber espionage.

Beijing responded furiously on Tuesday, summoning the US Ambassador Max Baucus and accusing Washington of double standards. Authorities also banned the use of Microsoft’s Windows 8 operating system on all new Government computers and suspended the activities of the bilateral cyber working group.

The Global Times said that Washington's "pretentious accusation against the Chinese army officers is ridiculous" given that the US NSA itself has engaged in widespread cyber spying through its PRISM program.

Interpol, according to the Chinese publication, "should have ordered the arrest of designers and implementers of the PRISM program but they did not". "Therefore the US is acting so shameless by posting photos of the five Chinese army officers."

The US prosecutors said the five indicted officers belong to Unit 61398 of the People’s Liberation Army.

A report last year by the US security firm Mandiant said the unit had thousands of workers operating from a nondescript 12-storey building on the outskirts of Shanghai and that their goal was to pilfer intellectual property and government secrets.

Beijing has denied the accusations and the Global Times on Wednesday called them "beyond our imagination".

Hello Sir! How are you this evening?

I’m great! How are you?

I'm pretty good myself. I read your article that you wrote about the scandal going on right now between China and the US regarding cyber spying. I’d like to ask you about the unprecedented charges against the officials, the naming of officials. Is the US really just a victim in all this?

First of all, let me agree with you – this is absolutely unprecedented. This is obviously an FBI operation. The FBI is the American intelligence agency in charge of counterintelligence. And we’ve never heard of the FBI actually naming the Chinese officials for People’s Liberation Army as persons responsible for espionage against the US.

These charges are indeed unprecedented. And some people think they maybe shape the things to come.

The timing of this! Now, when President Putin is in China, the Chinese-Russian relations are moving ahead quantitatively. What about the timing of this? Do you think this is specially timed?

We will see as the Chinese-Russian relations move ahead. I mean, it all depends on whether the deal with gas exports is going to be signed between the two sides.

The timing, of course, we can read all kinds of things in the timing. The US accuses China of economic espionage. That pushes China away from the US and to Russia. So, I’m not sure that will be too much in the timing of this, at this moment.

I don’t know if the US is interested anymore in doing business with anybody or having normal relations. I mean, they are pushing Russia away, they are pushing Europe away. Why not China?

That’s an excellent question. Some officials may not be accountable at all with this revelation. However, often the FBI will say – you know, I don’t care what do you think, the fact is that we have a counterintelligence investigation at hands, we have these officials that have been named, it is our duty to go ahead and name those officials.

I have a problem with a lot of the US media right now, especially with the coverage of Ukraine. I mean, it is all self-serving. And of course, they are going to demonize China as much as they can right now, because it has closer relations with Russia. And it seems like, as far as the media goes, anything they can do to demonize Russia in the last half a year intensely, they are going to do it.

This is not necessarily a controversial argument that you are making. I mean, the fact is that the American-Russian relations are not in a very good state right now. This revelation or this accusation just seems to appear out of the blue. So, yes, you are making a good point here.

Okay, in your article the headline was The US Cyber Security Posture is not Purely Defensive. What did you mean by that?

The US for the last decade or so has made the point that it finds itself unfairly targeted by the foreign cyber espionage. The question that one has to ask, and I’m speaking purely academically here, is – to what extent does the US itself is involved in offensive cyber espionage. Because one thing is to be defensive in the posture, and another thing is to be offensive.

And I think a lot of us who study this for living have this impression that the US is also involved in offensive espionage. We have had some evidence in the past of cyber security experts at the State Department who have attacked the websites.

What about Stuxnet?

If the US or other Western countries have an involvement with Stuxnet, that will be a textbook example of not cyber espionage, but cyber sabotage, if the US does that.

And here, there is an important issue, because every country in the world at this moment, they only say that they are defending themselves. I'm not quite sure this is accurate. I don’t pay too much attention to these crimes.

But what about Edward Snowden’s revelations? Are you going to say all that is lies or what?

The Edward Snowden’s revelations I think made a big impact on how we think about cyber espionage. The revelations themselves have shown that the US has spied on, particularly, foreign countries like Germany, Brazil etc.

I would take a step further – one the most incredible espionage revelations by Snowden didn't concern the US. It concerned spying by Australia against East Timor – a mining company for a mining contract which had nothing to do with the Australian national security, but had a lot to do with Australian economic interests. And Australia is considered as an analog of the US and Western countries. A very much shameful episode in the Australian intelligence’s history.

So, yes, I think the Snowden’s revelations have shed a lot of interesting light on how nations behave in the cyber realm.

In your article you’ve mentioned Hilary Clinton. She said that "countries or individuals that engage in cyber attacks should face consequences and international condemnation". That is everybody except for the US, as I take it.

Right! Again, you know, it is interesting. The US is very vocal about finding itself a victim of cyber espionage operation. I'd imagine that there is a cyber offensive aspect to America’s online presence.

So, in fact, what is interesting about this current spat with China, is that the US has said, in fact, many American officials have said that America does engage in espionage. But one thing they want to make clear is that the US does not engage in economic espionage. That what separates us from China, is that we don't spy on companies.

I’m sorry, I wasn’t born yesterday. I mean, I can’t believe that. The EU had all this evidence that they were spying on economic bodies in the EU and this stuff was brushed under the carpet really fast by the US Government.

That’s the argument the US makes. Now, I remember back in the mid 1990s, when the Echelon network revelations came out, at that point any European countries, particularly Germany and France, were very upset believing that the US has engaged in economic espionage against their companies.

In fact, at that time, around 1998 or 1997, the EU sent a delegation to America to investigate these claims that were made in official EU report. At that point the US officials refused to meet with them.

So, like you, I was not born yesterday and I don’t disagree with your skepticism that that may well be.

I know and I’m sure you know there is a very-very close relationship between the US corporations, the military industrial complex, the big oil companies, these private intelligence companies in the US. This is not right! This is almost an incestuous relationship between these huge moneyed interests in the US Government and the intelligence community. So, I take that you agree with me that the US is not just innocent here.

To find innocence…almost every country in the world engages in offensive cyber espionage. And it would seem logical to assume that every country is either engaged in offensive cyber espionage or is exploring ways to become engaged in offensive cyber espionage.

That’s of course purely a conjecture using common sense, because I have no evidence to show this. But I think using common sense we have to assume that every country is engaged in this field of intelligence in some way or another.

What about the level of the intrusiveness of the NSA, for example? They’ve crossed some lines that shouldn’t have been crossed. I mean, spying on American citizens in the US, collecting information, that really they have no right to, from innocent people and I’m sure form companies etc. I mean, it is just within the US, don’t you think they’ve crossed the line?

If you ask the NSA, they will tell you that mistakes happen and so on and so forth. My personal view is that when you are looking at intelligence agencies like the NSA, comparatively speaking the NSA is more transparent in its operations that other similar agencies in the Western world, including by the way the British GCHQ…

The NSA is more transparent? They didn't even exist a few years ago.

Exactly! The joke that NSA stood for No Such Agency. Keep in mind that both authorized and unauthorized revelations about the NSA going are back to the late 1980’es…

So, would you say that Snowden’s revelations were authorized? I think they weren't. That's why they were so ballistic.

Absolutely not authorized. And I don’t think there is any intelligence observer that would not agree with the statement that the Snowden’s revelations were very damaging.

I wouldn't say they were damaging for national security. They didn’t damage any security, they just verified what everybody already knew.

But think about, for example, the case of the US relations with Germany. They have been actually quite hurt by the revelations.

So, it should be okay that the US was spying on Germany?

The world of intelligence has its own rules. We are not talking about the department of agriculture here. These agencies and these functions go to the core of the modern nation state. And so, this is by nature very-very secretive. And I don’t think that is going to change any time soon.

The US nation state is at its core super secretive. And anybody who exposes anything that they are doing is demonized, like Bradley Manning, Edwards Snowden.

Yes! And closer you get to the core functions, for example, the national security and defense, the more secrecy is apparent.

And about Snowden, let me remind you that Snowden's revelations were not that shocking in many ways. But I think our conversation began me talking about America and China, rather than domestically. I think those two things are not necessarily related.

It is a continuation of – we are being attacked, we are innocent, we need to step up security, we need more millions of dollars for security, because we are being threatened.

America spends more on its defense that the rest of the world combined.

There is nobody threatening the US militarily.

Let me point this argument to you. If I were China, if I were Russia, I would realize it will be quite difficult to compete with the US in conventional warfare.

You've just made a mistake most Americans make, that there is no competition. The US is overextended. Really, the US officials and, apparently, most American people think that you have an unbeatable army and military force that is going to force American hegemony on the entire planet. It is not going to work.

Yes, I don’t think the recent history shows that the American army in unbeatable. In fact, if anything, there are several problems with its ability to dominate the battlefield.

The problem with this argument – it is more dangerous for Americans, because they are going to go out there and die with this false idea in their heads. It is a big disservice to the American people and to soldiers, and to anyone in the military.

It was actually quite interesting when the US went into Afghanistan, many articles appeared in the international press by the former Soviet veterans who were basically sharing their experiences of the war in Afghanistan and in many ways actually warning the US about what they are going into.

That war in Afghanistan would have been one interesting aspect in which, perhaps, Russia and the US could have worked together.

The people running everything, they are not thinking that way. And that is a problem. They are not thinking the way a normal person would. As far as I see it, they are provoking everybody on the planet. And now they are going to provoke China. I get this real impression that they are trying to start WW III in Ukraine.

When you say they, you know, it is very-very difficult to pinpoint who they are.

They keep themselves in the shadows and they've been in the shadows since 9/11.

From PRISM to Open Censorship, Lessons Not Learned

29 June, 2013 04:08

In what can only be described as an assault on freedom of speech and access to information, the U.S. Government has made the decision to block and filter internet access to the site of the U.K.’s Guardian on its U.S. Army networks, with the revelation coming to light after complaints from soldiers at the Presidio in San Francisco, California.

According to the Voice of Russia one Gordon Van Vleet, a spokesman for the Army Network Enterprise Technology Command, or NETCOM, stated that press coverage and online content about NSA leaks is being filtered and blocked.

Media reports say the blocks do not only apply to the facility in San Francisco but that they in fact cover the entire global U.S. Army network and while this is supposed to prevent U.S. Army personnel from accessing data that is available to the rest of the planet (more or less) it is not preventing them from viewing the information on their cell phones or their personal laptops or computers at home.

The hypocrisy here seems self evident. Here we have the people that are supposed to die for America and they are not allowed to view information concerning their government that is available to everyone else. The claims that the Department of Defense has made that the documents and the information on the PRISM program that are available online are classified and therefore can not be shown on unclassified sections of the U.S. military network seem plausible and credible until you consider that the information is now in the public domain and anything that was “classified” about it can no longer be the case.

While this is preventing soldiers from accessing the information on the PRISM program, surely one of the biggest revelations in the last several years, it is also preventing, or attempting to prevent soldiers from viewing or taking part in the debate and viewing the reaction from Americans and the world on the matter.

The fact the U.S. Government is attempting to censor what is viewed by American soldiers, people who are supposed to be ready to give up their lives to protect the American people and that very same government, throws the unbelievable arrogance of the United States once again, right out there for the world to see. It is also an indication of the almost lunatic level that the U.S. Government is going to in its attempts to hide its own illegitimacy and criminality from the American people, a people whom they are supposed to serve.

Like the assault on whistleblowers and anyone who attempts to expose the thugs in Washington and the criminality of the U.S. Government, this attempt to keep soldiers in the dark and dumbed down just adds to the overall mosaic of illegitimacy that the U.S. continues to paint of itself for the eyes of the world to see.

Of course from a command point of view it is not expedient that the troops on the ground and GI Joe and Jane know that the government that they are serving and that they must be ready to make the ultimate sacrifice for is no longer a legitimate government adhering to the constitution that they are all sworn to protect and must also be ready to die for.

The criminal cabal that has taken over the United States Government, under the control of the biggest criminal of all sitting in the U.S. White House, has proven time and time again that the law only applies to those that it itself determines they apply to. The unapologetic, arrogant and absolutely remorseless and conscienceless way that the extra-judicial executioner in chief and the government react to revelation after revelation is as frightening as it is nauseating.

The PRISM revelations which should be a damning indicator on the true state of the U.S. Government and which have proven that the entire terror paradigm is a complete and utter fabrication and has been since day one, have once again shown that the illegality that has been exposed and the egregious violations of law and the U.S. Constitution that are being uncovered on a regular basis, mean nothing to those in power who are committing them.

The criminal cabal calling the shots in the United States from the Kingpin in the White House to every single one of his henchmen, are all above the law and have become a law unto themselves.

The sanctimonious and hypocritical way that they go on and on dictating to the world about freedom, justice and human rights and pursuing policies dictated by double standards is becoming ever the more laughable with each and every passing day.

The fact that they are facing worldwide condemnation for their global spying network has not fazed them in the least, like a huge bully with an IQ of 40, rather than making corrections to their behavior they continue to employ the only tool they have, a sledgehammer. A sledgehammer which they continue to employ brutally against anyone they see as a threat to their own endless power, power they believe is absolute, but as absolute power corrupts absolutely, in the end it also destroys absolutely.

PRISM was created to control the world, it is illegal an abomination and must be shut down, however those controlling it are blind in the greed for control and power and now, rather than admitting they are wrong they will continue to snub their noses at all of us continue to violate international law and international norms right in our faces.

Normally the bad child caught with his hand in the cookie jar pulls his hand out and apologizes to his mother. This child has grown insane with its own power and instead picks up the cookie and brains his mother with it so he can continue eating the cookies he has no right to.

Illegality, subjugation, invasions, destruction, spying, assassinations, droning and a relentless mindless effort to bring the world to its knees and to achieve complete and total control over every single person on the planet are what we can expect from the U.S.. Or is it?

PRISM: Every move you make, “they” will be watching you

26 June, 2013 17:55  

The US Government and the unified global communications network operated by an alliance of the secret SIGINT units of Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States called UKUSA, has developed, expanded and spread unhindered to such a point that everything and anything you do on the internet, on a cell phone and through every other means of electronic based communications can, and now we know, is being collected, recorded and spied upon.

Like United States military infrastructure, through its international global military arm NATO, U.S. signals intelligence operations have now spread to every corner of the globe and are greedily gobbling up anything and everything that is flowing through cyber space, regardless of its origin or the rights of those being spied upon.

Two points are important to recall here, one that the Internet that we all so love and use and which has taken over the way the world does business and exchanges information was initially a U.S. global military network, and two that the expansion of the surveillance of the Internet to today’s present level and form was made possible by the “War on Terror” paradigm which has existed since 9-11 and has cowed most of the world’s population into fearful submission allowing the security services to expand their scope with almost complete and unhindered impunity.

Despite the reported efforts of the Global Network Initiative, a non-governmental organization (NGO) with the stated goals of preventing Internet censorship and protecting the Internet privacy of individuals there has been little that they have been willing and/or able to effectively do against the massive expansion and scope of spying programs being run by the National Security Agency (NSA) and the United States SIGINT System (USSS).

According to open source intelligence the PRISM SIGINT Activity Designator (SIGAD) replaced the post 9-11 Terrorist Surveillance Program (TSP) which was operating illegally without the approval of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC). However such programs, once the foundations and infrastructure are in place and if they have proven to be effective, may just be temporarily closed and re-launched using different names, locations, personnel and financial and administrative bodies and methods to hide and obfuscate their existence and true nature.

Hence programs like TSP, ECHELON, CARNIVORE may be shut down, paused and then restarted and repackaged and renamed. PRISM is the likely product of such projects and the unification of platforms across the SIGINT intelligence operations sphere. PRISM was approved by the U.S. judiciary and hence has been operating with impunity since at least 2007, controlled and operated by the Special Source Operations (SSO) unit of the United States National Security Agency (NSA).

PRISM is just the tip of the iceberg and is just a small part of the U.S. Government’s mechanism for spying on and controlling the countries and the peoples of the world. I mentioned the UKUSA group, their efforts are also worth noting What about the other partner countries in the spying alliance? Are they innocent of such egregious spying? Yes they are and even worse because they pass the private information of their citizens to the United States.

In this article I am dealing with Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) as it effects the average citizen of the world, this in no way means that the programs and the methods that I am discussing are by far the only instruments they are using to dominate the globe, all allowed and tolerated in the name of security. SIGINT involves many different intelligence collection instruments and methods and with the recent advances in technology these have grown incredibly. The basic areas of SIGINT can be grouped into two broad categories: communications intelligence (COMINT) and electronic intelligence (ELINT). As technology advances the crossovers and combinations of the two grow by the day, meaning for example information from a Skype chat would fall under both COMINT and ELINT, not a fact of vital importance but one that should be noted.

The members of the UKUSA Security Agreement: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, are also referred to by a number of abbreviations, further obfuscating their nature and existence such as AUSCANNZUKUS and Five Eyes. All of these countries are members of the ECHELON spy network. Which was originally, like NATO a program set up to spy on the former USSR and the Eastern Block and has been expanded, like NATO, at an incredibly rate since the end of the cold war and the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Gone are the days when the CIA would spend years attempting to dig tunnels and splice into the telephone networks of Soviet cities. Today they are connected to absolutely everything and anything. According to a report on ECHELON it is capable of intercepting telephone calls, faxes, e-mails and other data traffic worldwide including satellite based transmission, public switched telephone networks (which once carried most Internet traffic), microwave links, fiber optic communications and cell phone line of site networks.

With the revelations of the PRISM program which they say has been operating since 2007 it is now evident that the data collection capabilities include: e-mail, voice and video chats, streaming and other video, any and all photos, stored data on your hard drive, voice over IP (VoIP) conversations, file transfers, notifications of logins, etc., social networking details and a special category called “special requests”.

If we throw in satellite surveillance, CST systems, RFID chips, cell phone location and usage monitoring including interception of text messages, automobile tracking devices, credit card and purchasing information collection and GPS device related transmissions, then almost everything you do is subject to surveillance and monitoring, in a nutshell this means the spooks can now find out what you had for dinner last night, with whom and how much you paid for it, as well as every other private aspect of your lives.

United Kingdom

The U.K.’s programs are more hidden than those of the U.S. and there is less information available about them either because they are better at hiding them or they are less in number but their scope is almost equal to that of the U.S. however they are more restrained than their American “special friends”. We know that the U.K. is an active member of the ECHELON based infrastructure and now we know that they are also active in the PRISM SIGINT Activity Designator (SIGAD), or simply PRISM.

There are still calls from people like Stella Rimington for the expansion of U.K. spying so it is possible that the U.K. is lagging behind their American friends although judging by the number of CCTV cameras in London this is doubtful.

As for data collection stations the main ones for the United Kingdom are the Menwith Hill (US) facility, the Aiyos Nicolas Station in Cyprus and of course GCHQ, the U.K.’s version of the NSA. Again there is little information available on specific programs, which come under the aegis of directorates of Military Intelligence and GCHQ.

A little known fact about the U.K.’s Military Intelligence is that they have at least 20 directorates that are known about. With regards to SIGINT these might be handled by MI-1 (codes and ciphers), MI-5 and 6, MI-8 (signals and communications), MI-10 (technical), and perhaps MI-13 which like the NSA until recently doesn’t exist.

Australia

Although you may have thought Australia might be behind when it comes to the level of its secret bureaucracies and the amount of spying it does think again. Among entities in Australia that provide for governance and policy over the secret service and operations are: the NSC, the SCNS, the NCTC, the NICC, the NICMC, the NIOSC, the HIAM, the NSIPC, the NSA (not that one), the DNSA, the NSCIO, the ISD and more.

Intelligence agencies include the Australian Security Intelligence Organization (ASIO), the Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS), the Defense Intelligence Organization (DIO) and but not limited to, the Defense Signals Directorate (DSD). However it is probably the DSD that we are most interested in as they handle the analysis, collection and distribution of foreign SIGINT and are responsible for communications, information, cyber and computer security.

Their main global station is located right in the center of Australia at Pine Gap but they have stations throughout Australia.

Canada

Canada’s Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) in not only part of the UKUSA group but shares intelligence with the U.S., the U.K., and Australia under what is called the “Quadpartite Pact”. CSIS is the principle Canadian intelligence service and are a civilian service unlike the MIs and the NSA and CIA. However Canada’s Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC) is responsible for SIGINT in Canada.

CSEC has facilities at CFS Leitrim, the main SIGINT facility, and at other locations such as CFB Gander Newfoundland, CFS Masset, BC and CFS Alert, Nunavut.

CSEC relies mainly on the U.S., U.K., Australia and New Zealand for its intelligence collection and benefits substantially from UKUSA, especially when it comes to foreign communications.

Currently Canadian programs are still largely secret although involvement with PRISM, ECHELON and other programs has been documented, to what level they provide the CIA and the NSA information on Canadians remains to be seen.

New Zealand

The Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) listens to phone calls and intercepts e-mail and other communications but is not supposed to do so on citizens of New Zealand, they have been reported to be a part of ECHELON.

New Zealand Security Intelligence Service (NZSIS or SIS) is responsible for foreign intelligence operations and information gathering. However it is the super secret Combined Signals Organization (CSO) that handles SIGINT, ECHELON operations and the like.

PRISM operations in New Zealand would fall under the GCSB and the CSO, but again their level of participation may be minimal and due to New Zealand’s small size they are more likely largely beneficiaries of UKUSA and PRISM operations.

The “Real Hacking Empire” and the War on Truth

12 May, 03:45

The cyber war continues, with the People’s Republic of China and the United States, trading accusations of cyber attacks, but the real war is a war to control and manipulate information and to keep the “inconvenient truth” from reaching the world’s internet denizens. A sign of an empire in decline is the stifling of truth that shows its illegitimacy and a war on those who would expose the truth. Attacks on China have to be seen as part of a larger US effort and the next victim could be anyone.

Back in February we reported on a cyber security firm called Mandiant, in Alexandria, Virginia, less than half an hour from the unincorporated community of Langley (the metonym for the CIA) in McLean, Virginia. The firm had made public a report detailing threats posed by Chinese hackers. They claimed the “Advanced Persistent Threat” (APT), actors operating in China and with the blessing of the Chinese Government, had been conducting, quote: “… a cyber espionage campaign against a wide range of victims since 2006” unquote.

I took them to task for their self-serving claims, their security suite according to SC Magazine, called “Mandiant Intelligent Response”, which will protect anyone from Chinese super hackers costs $86,000.00. I also took them to task for the amount of surveillance and penetration of Chinese government sites and Chinese internet infrastructure, the level of which was astounding. Just to produce the report they released they had to launch their own massive penetration campaign and hack into thousands of Chinese sites and systems.

So the recent claims by the Chinese Government, after the Pentagon released a report accusing China of launching cyber attacks, that the United States of America is the “real hacking empire” and has “an extensive espionage network” are not surprising in the least and I would say a given.

In a recent article on the matter the website Quartz details some of the ways in which the US hacks into the systems of other countries. Quartz wrote: “The US has some of the most powerful cyber warfare resources in the world and has long been one of the leading sources of cyber attacks on companies and people. According to cyber security firm McAfee, the US is home to the largest number of botnets in the world, the control servers used to hack computers in the US and elsewhere. Data from Deutsche Telekom shows that far more attacks against its networks come from Russia and the US than China. And according to HostExploit, which tracks malware activity, the US and Russia, not China, have the world’s most malicious servers.”

They also wrote: “In some ways, Beijing is right to argue that China is also a victim, wrote Jason Healy, director of Cyber Statecraft at the Atlantic Council, last month. Between September 2012 and March of this year, 85 Chinese government and company websites were hacked, with 39 of the attacks originating in the US, according to Chinese state media. Chinese authorities also said that US-based servers had hosted 73% of phishing attacks on Chinese residents during roughly the same period.”

This is all not surprising as the US continues to attempt to control the flow of information worldwide, wage a war on whistleblowers and shut down resources and silence people who go against the official US line or expose the criminality of those in Washington and the United States. Along with the illegal global war on terror and all of the crimes being committed in its execution and the global military expansion by the US through its surrogate NATO, the United States had proven that it is the single biggest security threat in the world, not only a threat to freedom of speech and expression on the internet, but even more importantly to world peace.

Although many of the world’s internet denizens see the internet as a wonderful source of information and a way to share information and reach out to others, governments, particularly the US, which created the internet in order to hide a military computer network, see the internet as a tool to collect intelligence on foreign governments and on the world’s populace. One reason Facebook has a special CIA interface.

Some of the aspects of this militarization of the net and the war on information activists and whistleblowers by the US government were chillingly described by Julian Assange in a recent interview he gave to the Nation. Mr. Assange remains trapped in limbo in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and will soon mark his one year anniversary there as the UK authorities refuse to grant him safe passage to the airport in a continuing violation to international norms and diplomatic etiquette.

According to  however the US has lost: “The status quo, for them, is a loss… The Pentagon threatened and me personally, threatened us before the whole world, demanded that we destroy everything we had published, demanded we cease ‘soliciting’ new information from US government whistle-blowers, demanded, in other words, the total annihilation of a publisher. It stated that if we did not self-destruct in this way that we would be ‘compelled’ to do so.”

 … effectively exposed the empire’s hypocrisy, indiscriminate violence and its use of torture, lies, bribery and crude tactics of intimidation. shone a spotlight into the inner workings of empire (the most important role of a press) and for this it has become empire’s prey. Those around the globe with the computer skills to search out the secrets of empire are now those whom empire fears most. If we lose this battle, if these rebels are defeated, it means the dark night of corporate totalitarianism. If we win, if the corporate state is unmasked, it can be destroyed.”

The persecution of  the recent shut down of the Cyber Bunker, attacks on Chinese, Russian, North Korean, Syrian, and Palestinian servers and web sites show just how concerted the efforts are by the US in attempting to control the flow of information worldwide. With regards to  alone the Nation said: “At least a dozen American governmental agencies, including the Pentagon, the FBI, the Army’s Criminal Investigative Department, the Department of Justice, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Diplomatic Security Service, are assigned to the case, while the CIA and the Office of the Director of National Intelligence are assigned to track down supposed breaches of security.”

Rather than hunt down the criminals exposed by the whistleblowers they continue to attempt to go after the messengers of truth and control the world’s flow of information.

In the context of China, I think it is important to recall that China is a working and successful Communist country, something the US is usual quiet about as China’s economic stake in the US is so large that if it pulls out the US would no doubt collapse, and geopolitically China along with Russia are seen as enemies by Washington, so it is a given that the US will try to do anything it can to undermine not only China but Russia and any other country it sees as a challenge. That the single largest military threat to the planet and the world’s policeman and censor is also the “real hacking empire” is not surprising.

CyberBunker - Spamhaus battle leads to largest DDoS attack in Internet history

28 March, 2013 19:19  

It has been identified as the largest DDoS attack in the history of the internet, at one point reaching a mind boggling 300,000,000,000 bits a second, that’s billion (300Gps), and it has affected servers, websites and web services all over the net, slowing down the net and making some sites completely inaccessible. 

Once again we see violent opposition to mediocre minds trying to control the internet and tell you what you can see and what you can not see, who is bad and must be shut down, and who should be allowed to speak. The internet was one of the few mediums where is information was free, however more and more we see attempts to limit and control the flow of information. We have even recently seen information activists become the subject for western military attack. One provider which offers access to anyone free of censorship is under attack and the net has decided to fight back.         

The attack is part of an ongoing battle for internet freedom between supporters of a provider name CyberBunker, which provides uncensored hosting for everything and anything, except for child pornography and terrorism, and a company called Spamhaus which claims to be battling spam but which has effectively become an internet censor by arbitrarily blocking entire domains and providers under the cover of battling spammers.

At the heart of the cyber war between backers of CyberBunker and Spamhaus is the fact that Spamhaus placed the provider on a blacklist, and has effectively been blackmailing Internet Service Providers (ISPs), ISP providers and carriers into disconnecting clients and web services with a court order or legal redress.

In October of 2011 Spamhaus single-handedly determined that Cyber Bunker was a “haven for spammers” and asked A2B, which is their upstream provider, to cancel their internet service and disconnect their servers.

If Spamhaus, which claims to be a non-profit organization and is used by millions to filter internet traffic and e-mails every day, determines that a domain or provider is being used to send spam, Spamhaus adds the domain or, in this case, the entire provider to its blacklist, hence cutting them off from the net and their users. ISPs know this and are then forced to censor or cut off their clients, again without legal recourse or a legal order, just because Spamhaus says so.

CyberBunker, which is housed in a real bunker; a five-story-deep ex-NATO cold-war-era bunker that was designed to withstand a nuclear attack, located near the town of Kloetinge in the Dutch countryside in the southern part of the Netherlands, says they are not responsible for the attacks but that a consortium of ISP and carrier organizations and thousands of unknown supporters are responsible for the onslaught on Spamhaus.

In an interview with RT television CyberBunker spokesman Sven Olaf Kamphuis said that Spamhaus has angered ISP and carrier providers for years by using mafia tactics and blackmail to make providers disconnect clients without a court order. He said Spamhaus wants to control all of the platforms through which information passes.

Kamphuis said if Spamhaus  wishes to continue to exist they need to stop blocking entire subnets and ISPs by incorrectly listing IP addresses belonging to people who Spamhaus arbitrarily determines to be criminals, just because they say so.

In a Skypechat where people unhappy about Spamhaus’ actions began to organize it became clear that many of Spamhaus’ targets are in Russia and China and that for some reason Spamhaus lists an inordinate number of Russian and Chinese “criminals” and “spammers” as subjects for blocking.

Kamphius told RT that Spamhaus maintains an illegal list “without permission from the Information Commissioners Office and in contradiction to the data protection act, of all personal details and pictures and names and addresses of people that Spamhaus do not like.” He also said they believe Russia and China should not be allowed to access the internet and implied that this the motivation for their actions and their activities are aimed with that end in mind.

Meanwhile on Thursday there were reports that on-line banking services were beginning to suffer, streaming media sites such as Netfix are being adversely affected and the Guardian reports that thousands of Britons are unsuspecting participants of the attacks as their router s have been subverted, although this last claim is highly dubious as there is no evidence that personal routers can be or have been “subverted” in order to carry out attacks by unknown individuals.

Several media outlets have questioned the entire affair as a PR event for companies which provide internet security and other such services such CloudFlare which has sought to generate publicity for itself by becoming involved in the attack although in reality they are incapable of dealing with such a massive onslaught.

What we see in the whole bloody affair is once again a trampling of freedom of speech and expression by an organization abusing their mandate, another egregious demonizing of Russia and China, profiteering in the name of security and fear mongering to continue to allow for the restriction of your freedom. As a regulator, which is the role Spamhaus has abrogated for itself, they should be beyond reproach and operate fairly and in keeping with the law. When they and others who purport to be in a position to dictate to the world how to behave prove they themselves are in need of oversight and can not follow the rule of law, they and those like them must be reigned in and shut down and their arbitrary trampling on the rights and freedoms of others must be stopped immediately.

There are those in power who are afraid of information being free, in essence information that allows the world to bear witness to their nefarious activities, and these “individuals” will do anything to stop or control the flow of information, whether they use mafia tactics, threats of drone attack as NATO has done, or illegal indefinite detention as the US has done, these individuals must continue to be exposed, if the internet is to be the vehicle for that exposure, so be it. We as citizens of the world must be ever vigilant of anyone trying to restrict of control our freedom and right to be informed, under whatever guise they might be posing.

Ugly Gorilla and Chinese Unit 61398 to replace Osama's Al-Qaeda as the new global threat, or “How do we sell our overpriced product?”

20 February, 2013  11:46  

Ugly Gorilla and Chinese Unit 61398 to replace Osama and Al-Qaeda as the new global threat, or “How do we sell our overpriced product?”

A company selling network security services has issued an extremely detailed report on how the Chinese Army is relentlessly attacking Western computer networks and companies. With the war on terror not really producing enough terrorists to justify the hyper security state of America, they need a new focus to justify cracking down on the last bit of freedom Americans have, namely the Internet. The threat to the world is now from the Chinese Army and the evil hacker UglyGorilla, and they will get you. Really! Run for the hills!

When a message is being delivered by a messenger whose self interests are served by the message, one must always be wary.

A cyber security firm named Mandiant, based in Alexandria, Virginia, 26 minutes from the unincorporated community of Langley (the metonym for the CIA) in McLean, Virginia, has come out with a much publicized and self-serving report detailing the evil and dangerous threat posed by relentless Chinese hackers.

The report claims that advanced threat “actors”, or the more ominous sounding “Advanced Persistent Threat” (APT), operating in China and with the blessing of the Chinese Government, have been conducting, quote: “… a cyber espionage campaign against a wide range of victims since 2006” unquote.

The experts at Mandiant have no doubt done a huge amount of hacking themselves because they have, according to their own claims, “discovered” a mountain of information about that these evil Chinese “hackers” who are a part of the 2nd Bureau of the People’s Liberation Army, General Staff Department Unit 61398. Mandiant claims their information is from “open source observations” yet they make many claims that, if they are true, point to a concentrated attack on a very well defined location and the accessing of information that for China would be considered secret.

The hackers at Mandiant, or as the West would call them “cybersecurity personnel”, (U.K. Guardian calls Western hackers who attack China “cybersecurity forces”), have apparently discovered that Unit 61398 is involved in work that for China is a “state secret” and that they are involved in “harmful Computer Network Operations”.

The spying that the hackers at Mandiant have done on China does not stop there, they have named the exact building where Unit 61398 is apparently located, its physical address, the layout of the compound and the buildings, its square footage, when it was built, how many people work there, the kind of wiring and infrastructure at the facility, the training requirements of the personnel, how many networks they use, the exact data they have “stolen”, the tools the Chinese supposedly use, the exact length of time they have accessed a “victims” network (example 1,764 days), the number of victims, exactly how many terabytes of data were stolen and even three individuals who are guilty of “following orders”.

Mandiant’s hacking is superb, (Oh I am sorry when they do it, it is called “cyber security”), and they even give names to these evil Chinese “hackers”: UglyGorilla, DOTA and SuperHard! (Very Chinese sounding names of course) They even claim to have: “… videos showing actual attacker sessions and their intrusion activities”! They state this on page 5 of their report, right above a paragraph detailing their “security” products and which ones you can buy.

On page 6 Mandiant does say they are: quite possibly, perhaps a little, maybe a wee bit: mistaken, and the operations may be taking place not in the headquarters of Unit 61398 itself but quote: “… right outside of Unit 61398’s gates.”

The rest of the 74 page report gives details about the structure of the Communist Party of China and includes many pages detailing how the information was obtained, what the threats are and how you can purchase their products.

According to Mandiant’s website the threat is dire and the only one who can save you is Mandiant. Their site says, quote: “Mandiant is the ONLY information security company that can both: A) TELL A COMPANY WHEN IT HAS BEEN COMPROMISED AND B) TELL WHAT THE MATERIAL IMPACT OF THE BREECH WAS!!!

They call this an “extraordinary statement” but personally I would go with a company that could STOP THE THREAT BEFORE IT HAPPENED! Not tell me about it afterwards.

Mandiant is in the business of selling threats, (well okay in the business of responding to attacks), so the entire report may only be a self-serving marketing gimmick and it would seem China is the great (APT). This assessment can only be further backed up by their own gratuitous plugging of their products and the exaggerated language present on their site.

Some examples: “makes us the go-to company for organizations that are looking to protect their most valuable assets”, “advanced persistent threat (APT) and other targeted attackers that are attempting to compromise your most valuable assets”, “known nefarious domains to perform malicious activity”, “persistent attackers execute a series of activities to entrench themselves and compromise your systems. If you manage to kick them out, rest assured they will be back”, “Skilled, determined attackers can break, enter and succeed within minutes. Other times, they spend days plotting, establishing backdoors and fortifying their positions inside your company” and “There is no such thing as perfect security. Attackers get smarter and change tactics all of the time.” But with all this they will help you, for a price of course.

According to SC Magazine “Mandiant Intelligent Response”, the only thing to protect you from the Chinese super hackers will only cost you a mere $86,000.00. Yes that’s right ONLY $86,000.00. (Mandiant was too modest to post pricing anywhere on their site hence SC’s price quote and no other prices were found).

The Guardian seems to agree and so does Obama, the threat is real and you are a target and China is everywhere, just like Al-Qaeda: behind every tree.

$86,000.00. No problem. OR if you only have $80,000 and can’t seem to find that other $6,000 measly bucks, I will give you John’s security advice for free, two simple and cheap things any organization handling sensitive information knows: NEVER connect a sensitive and/or secure network to the Internet and ALWAYS hire people you know you can trust.

As for China, I think they might have grounds to file a complaint as it seems that they have been hacked. Or then again, maybe Obama needs to target UglyGorilla with a drone.

Imminent threats! Evil plots and relentless Communist attack! That is what has made (Langley) Virginia great and the profiteers rich! Is that UglyGorrila in your server?

Orwellian methods cyber control: DDoS, Greensboro sit-ins, Anonymous comment

13 January, 2013 19:42  

When there is tyranny free people must fight back, when the tyrants try to take away that right, they must be removed. The United States of America is attempting to implement and exercise tyranny on the world-wide-web, this is evidenced by unproportionate fines and prison sentences for anything they deem they do not like. Cyber space should be free space not a prison planet. Anonymous commented on DDoS and the Greensboro sit-ins to the Voice of Russia.

The recent petition by supporters of Anonymous to the Obama Administration to decriminalize DDoS attacks has now received 3,649 signatures, as of time of writing.

One of my sources in Anonymous contacted me with some interesting facts that show the ridiculous over kill possessed by the US authorities. If you are not convinced that ten year felony sentences for a temporary slowdown of a location in cyber-space which then remains undamaged is over-kill perhaps these facts will change your mind.

According to my anonymous source: “The severity of the sentences the government seeks for those who have participated in denial of service protests are dangerously out of line with the harm caused.”

The source says that according to the US’ own data rapists serve on average 65 months in prison, yet the government seeks sentences of ten years, 120 months, for the nonviolent act of participating in a denial of serviceprotest. Liking DDoS in the virtual world to denial of service in the real world is an astute argument but in reality the virtual kind is so much less tangible and in reality does not even exist in the real world that it should not even need to be compared, let alone prosecuted.

One might argue if the people do not have the right to protest and freely express themselves in cyber space, then the government which is supposed to be of the people has absolutely no business attempting to regulate it or control it.

Attempting to control the masses and information with such Orwellian methods and such an iron-hand is nothing if not complete and total tyranny on the part of the US Government and the out of control police state.

The source goes on to say: “Denial of service actions have been instrumental in the pursuit and protection of civil rights in America. Recall that the touchstone moment of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement was the Greensboro sit-in where isolated and vulnerable blacks occupied the "whites-only" lunch counter at Woolworth's.The protest spanned days, rather than the hours typical of a DDoS protest, and the Woolworth's lunch business was blocked entirely, while sales dropped by more than a third. Yet for all of this disruption, protesters were largely unmolested by the police. In fact, the police even protected a protester by arresting an angry assailant! Ultimately, Woolworth's changed their policy of segregation to end the protest, allowing blacks and whites to enjoy equal treatment.”

Comparing the Civil Rights Movement to cyber sit-ins may be a little bit of a stretch but the question here is the methodology to bring about peaceful change. Again to contrast, the Greensboro sit-ins required dozens if not hundreds of people putting their lives on the line and risking real world blowback. So logically the penalty should be more severe than doing something in cyber space. Again DDoS attacks do not damage and just slow things down for a while. So why is the US so heavy-handed on cyber activists?

Our source says: “Yet in recent times, the story does not end so happily. When Paypal, Visa, and Mastercard blocked and confiscated donations intended for  protesters flooded the companies' sites to demand thatreceive the same service that all other customers enjoy. So much internet traffic was generated by protesters that, effectively, all of the seats at the lunch counters of these financial companies were occupied, temporarily closing their websites. Within hours rather than weeks, the protesters dispersed peacefully and normal operations resumed for Paypal, Visa, and Mastercard.”

The US government is desperate to control the internet and terrify anyone who attempts to exercise any sort of freedom on it, just like they attempt to stifle the freedom of speech in the real world, for several reasons. The main reason being their own criminal conduct and the fact that the internet has done more to show the evil and illegality of government and corrupt officials than anything else in the history of mankind, another secondary but nonetheless important reason is the financial motivations of the corporations which not control the Fascist States of America.

The source said: “Today's powerful federal police, however, no longer exercise the restraint shown by the local police of 1960s. In the following two months, the FBI served more than 40 warrants and released the famous press statement calling for 10-year felony sentences for all involved.”

In reality DDoS attacks are a temporary headache and when addressing legitimate complaints they should not be prosecuted at all. Prosecuting personal or damaging material, launching personal cyber attacks or cracking into systems and defacing or stealing information is another topic entirely. For the out of control police state however prosecuting DDoS attacks in such a heavy handed way is just another way to make the for-profit-prison-system more profitable, terrorize anyone with a dissenting view into silence and protect the government’s corporate controllers.

Source finished with the following statement: “Anonymous stands by the example of the brave men and women of Greensboro. History shows that the bravery of protesters results in a more just society for all, and the public interest is not served by 10-year sentences for peaceful resistance.”

Every move you make, we’ll be watching you -  US Hyper Security REX84 State

15 January, 21:27 

30,000 drones flying over the United States in the next 20 years is just one of the things Americans have to look forward too as their government continues to turn their country into a 100% total security state. Americans have long ago traded their “freedom” for security, so drones over Kansas should be no real big deal. The US Government and even the local sheriff are counting on your support, and support you will because you have no choice.

According to the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) within 20 years there will be approximately 30,000 drones flying over the United States. This month alone the FAA approved the usage of another 348 drones to be used within the United States.

The latest drone-hungry law enforcement body in the US to publically declare they will be using drones is the Sherriff’s Department of Orange County Florida, which has stated it intends to use 2 drones this summer over the metropolitan Orlando area. LINK 1

Proponents of drone usage are attempting to justify yet another intrusion into the privacy of Americans and another tool that will strip away personal freedom and assist in creating a 100% secure-total-control-hyper-security state, by saying they will be used to catch illegal immigrants, criminals, and you guessed it terrorists.

The problem here is that most Americans are buying into these false flag hyped-up arguments based on media-spin and false propaganda being spread by their own government.

Saying that some poor Mexican (or other illegal) who picks their tomatoes, lives in a room with seven other illegals during the picking season only to be deported before he can be paid when the farmer who hired him turns him in to the Immigration and Naturalization Service because, lo’ and behold, unbeknownst to him they were illegal, is a threat to America’s national security, is the most disingenuous xenophobic argument one can possibly imagine.

People conveniently forget that illegal-immigrants are exploited to no end in the United States and then blamed for every problem under the sun. They also forget that without them the price for most fruits and vegetables, for example, would sky-rocket beyond affordability if union-wage paid hands were sent out to the fields to pick the harvests. But of course for the US Government it is easy to blame marginalized and vulnerable members of the population for any problem they wish.

As for criminals, the US for-profit-prison-system is holding more prisoners than other country on earth and the US also has a larger percentage of the population in prison than any other country on the planet.

Does a country that can put a person in prison for life for stealing a Mars bar on three occasions (California’s 3 strikes law) really need to be able to spy on anyone anytime they want? And that is assuming the drones will be used for surveillance. The next step will be arming them, again in the name of security to facilitate arrests and stop criminals.

Does the US law enforcement establishment need to be this militarized? The answer is no. Do they wish to be? The answer is they absolutely and without a do.

What about the terrorist claim? Well, to be frank the entire US terrorist threat is pure hype. Unless of course we take into account the self-created terrorist threat that has existed since 9-11. However even after more than a decade of slaughtering supposed “terrorists” their families and everyone around them, perhaps in the hope of creating real terrorists and thousands who will seek revenge for the killing of their families, there has yet to be a real terrorist attack in the United States of America.

So there you go American populace, you have been duped and the real planners of 9-11 have been rolling over and laughing at you since day one. Here you were asked to believe that some ex-CIA agent (Osama bin-Laden a.k.a. Tom Ossman) organized the most precision demolition in the history of mankind and staged it to look like a terrorist attack using pilotless “drone” aircraft from a cave in Afghanistan, and you believed it. Then you were asked to believe that behind every tree and lamp-post there lurked an al-Qaeda terrorist from the local “cell” that exists in every “hometown” American city, and you believed that too.

So they stripped you of one right after the other and you agreed because you felt afraid and terrorized and trusted your government, yet who in fact was terrorizing you? Your own government and your government-and-corporate-controlled-mass-media, who have worked hand in hand in creating the corporate-controlled fascist state you live in today.

So Americans, you have video cameras on every corner, you have bar codes and computers that record your purchases and upload them to your “file” when you use your credit card, you have dentists who record and upload your data to central data-bases, you have AGPS devices with internet connect-ability that record your every move and can now even determine what floor you are on, cell phones that can be used remotely to listen and even watch you through the camera and which can track your every move, you have traffic cams that record your license number and can ticket you by mail, laser radar that can record your speed from three miles out, auto-mounted transmitters that can help track your vehicle no matter where you might be, satellite cams that can read the title of that paperback you are reading while you try to fall asleep, cameras that can see through walls, acoustic, microwave and other weapons that can cook you alive from the inside from a distance, data-bases of your every move from a doctor’s visit to a late electrical bill, facial identification software being used in public places, retinal scans, brain scanning devices that can supposedly pick up the “abnormal” brain activity of a terrorist, and that is not all. They want to put RFID chips under your skin with all of your information stored on them that can be activated remotely, they already have RFID chips used to track consumer goods and cars and even students (Texas), warrantless wire tapping and surveillance to listen to every word you say and to watch you whenever they want, you have data bases that record all your activities on the internet and Carnivore which saves and records every e-mail and fax you send, there are even tiny micro-chips in your money which record every bank where that money has been, and then there are the lists: the black lists, no-fly lists, watch lists, secret police lists which might contain such information as the fact that you keep a shot gun under the bed in the right corner, etc. etc., so with all that America what is a drone?

If you were to enter the “secret” DHS or CIA or NSA rooms where there are huge screens that they use to track and record everything and anything they want and can bring you up with a few key-strokes and see where you are and what you have been up to, including what you had for dinner last night, you would understand that you are no longer free.

I personally don’t feel too bad for Americans, they have blindly allowed all of this to come about and unfortunately for them it is too late.

Meanwhile, is Russia we have traffic cams, registration stamps with our addresses, and very competent security services who actually prevent real terrorists from attacking. Without demanding the enslavement of the people.

The public interest is not, but the corporate and police state’s interests are. If the people no longer have the right to protest, then they are slaves of the system, and that is exactly what those in power in America want.

Remember that MP3? The police are en-route

Remember that MP3? The police are en-route

With the US ready to send Anonymous Hacktivist Jeremy Hammond to prison for life, Jullian Assange stuck in limbo in an embassy, Commander X and Anonymous members being hunted, is the world about to allow the US and its surrogates to come after all of us? Apparently it is. The total enslavement of mankind will soon be here, brought to you by the fascist United Corporate States of America. Recently the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) met in secret to decide on new ways to control the World Wide Web.

In a very quiet release of information the Internet Warriors and “Hacktivist” Group Anonymous, has informed the world of one of the tools that will be used to bring this about. If you have ever downloaded a song for example, or transferred it to your cute little harmless looking MP3 player, or listened to it off a USB flash drive in your car, or copied it to another computer, or God forbid, shared it with a friend, this applies to you. You are a criminal, you have violated US law and they will come after you.

The ITU was originally known as the International Telegraph Union a United Nations agency responsible for controlling information and communication technologies. The ITU’s activities include global coordination of the use of the radio spectrum, cooperation in determining satellite orbits, telecommunication infrastructure development in the developing world, and assistance to countries in the development and coordination of worldwide technical standards.

Their sphere of influence includes the entire planet and every user of the World Wide Web is affected by their decisions, so it is alarming that they would meet in secret and that the contents of their work would only be made public via an Anonymous “secret document” release.

The technology that was approved and discussed at the conference and has internet freedom proponents up in arms is called the Deep Packet Inspection Standard (DPI), it is a crucially important technology for the mass world-wide surveillance of the internet.

Some immediate uses of the DPI, according to the ITU and Anonymous include: technology for tracking and identifying the users and sources of the BitTorrent system (used for transferring films, programs, music and almost anything else electronic), identifying and tracking copyrighted material (including music, video, electronic books, photographs, etc.), identifying the exact content and nature of transferred files and their source, blocking and controlling Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) messages used in video and audio communications uplinks, measuring and eventually controlling Jabber traffic (In Spanish for some reason. Jabber was originally called Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) this is communications protocol for message-oriented software based on XML Extensible Markup Language used extensively by social networks VoIP communications and gaming traffic) and finally identifying source and controlling VoIP itself (VoIP stands for Voice over Internet Protocol), used in such things as voice communications and SMS communications over the internet.

Without getting too technical, in brief this will make almost anything and everything you do over the internet subject to even easier inspection and monitoring and in the end prosecution by, (Who else?) the US and its surrogates.

According to several hackers on Anonymous forums, the DPI will effectively make it easier to monitor, prohibit, identify and control the net, and as one individual put it “These standards would lower the learning curve for the NOC (NOC stands for Network Operations Center, a location where a network is monitored and controlled) monkeys considerably,” meaning their knowledge of scripts and networking technology and other tools will have to be much less.

We know that the World Wide Web was first developed to hide a global military network which still exists today and that one reason Bill Gates became so rich was that his “Windows” platform, with its secret source code, contained secret backdoors for the government which allows the spying on any computer connected to the internet, so now this will be taken to the next level and allow for them to openly go after anyone they see fit.

With the role of the US as the world’s policeman expanded so it is now an out of control super-power unilaterally engaged in extra-judicial executions, launching invasions at will and a million other practices that subjugate and enslave the world, the day will soon come when: if a user in Bora-Bora downloads an MP3, he may get a knock on the door, or perhaps he will be fined on the spot and his bank account will be hit for the cost of the “violation”.

If you say, “Hey, all my software is legal, so what?” you will need to worry about everyone you come into contact with. What if someone sends you an “illegal” attachment? You will be liable. What if someone you are talking to on Skype mentions the words “president” and “bomb” in the same conversation? You will be under surveillance. No matter where you are or who you happen to be.

One telling aspect of the ITU’s meeting was the list of who was not allowed to attend, according to RT such “deviant” organizations as Google, Facebook and Twitter, and what was not allowed to be discussed; namely proposals from countries the world over who will be affected by yet another unilateral US decision.

Apparently is it not enough for the US Government that Facebook was forced to provide the CIA with its own special interface, they want more, they want complete and total control of the entire pie.

In this day and age of continual aggressive invasions and the continued distribution and attempted distribution of false information to facilitate support for such heinous acts, the internet is the last resort for many the world over to learn the truth about what is really happening. For Americans, apart from foreign media, the internet is the only place where they can actually learn what is really happening.

A government that is afraid of information being shared is a government that is engaged in evil. They need to control you, because they are afraid of you, they need to shut you down because they are afraid of what you might learn, that what they are doing is illegal and that they are engaged in crimes against all humanity.

Imagine a day when you attach a retinal scanner to your eye, and a device reads the chip implanted in your skull before you log onto your computer, to write a letter to your mother that may be rejected by Carnivore and the NSA because you accidently wrote bomb and president in the same sentence. Imagine you are then locked to your seat, by hidden steel restraints that immobilize you so the authorities can come and take you away. Or imagine you are sent a song and begin to listen only to have a warning pop up on the screen advising you to stay where you are the copyright police are on the way, sound fantastic? Not really just the next logical step.

 Rather than using encryption and other technologies to make file sharing impossible they want to criminalize it, and more importantly, criminalize you, then they will have the “right” to take away your freedom and whatever else you have that they desire.

US Adm Wants Total Control in Cyberspace

15 September 2012, 12:26  

US administration wants total control in cyberspace

The recent upheavals in the world have taken attention away from a very important move by US President Obama that could strip away another large chunk of freedom from Americans and place another huge and important piece of the public domain under government and corporate control. President Obama has circulated an executive order that will implement measures that have already failed to pass Congress and were contained in the failed Cybersecurity Act of 2012. Again the pretense for stripping away freedoms is “security” and again the attackers are China and Russia.

Whenever the US issues another order or law regarding “security” the hairs on the back of my neck stand on end. Why? Because this means that even more rights and civil liberties will be stripped away from the people and even more power will be had by the government.

Reports say that the Obama Administration is currently drafting what is called in the US, an executive order, giving the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the power and the responsibility to establish standards of cybersecurity that would protect banks, water plants, telecommunication networks and the U.S. power grid from electronic attacks.

On the surface and to those who know little about the real cyber attacks, the program dubbed Perfect Citizen, looks like something that is needed and should have been implemented yesterday, but hold on a minute, the devil is in the details and in who is behind the plans, namely the most secret of the secret US Security structures, the National Security Agency or NSA.

The problem with that for US citizens and in general is that it would give an intelligence agency control over a public system which may be an area of expertise by the NSA, responsible for signals and electronic security, but goes against the NSA directive not to spy on US citizens.

The plan which has wide-ranging implications and will basically allow the government to take control over the electronic grid, and this includes the internet, is deemed necessary by its proponents because the power grid of the United States is supposedly vulnerable and under constant cyber-attack. However this is far from the truth.

According to Michael Tanji over at Wired, first of all the networks in question, power grids and the public water supply systems are rarely if ever connected to wide area networks and the public internet. Secondly the operating and control systems they use are often proprietary, meaning they have no publically or even privately available analogues that are available and accessible to the public or to hackers who can reverse engineer them and find weaknesses or vulnerabilities that they can exploit.

So the law is not needed and the rationale behind it is false then why attempt to pass the law, bypassing the legislative branch, by using an executive order to do so? First of all because a similar bill failed to be passed into law earlier this year and second of all for the reason I have already stated, it would allow the US Government to take control of the internet and the public electronic grid which includes almost all forms of modern communications.

According to propaganda put out by the continuously more powerful Department of Homeland Security there are constant attacks that target everything from the US power grid to nuclear power plants.

Even scarier is information being disseminated by the National Security Agency itself. A report published byReuters quotes the head of NSA's Information Assurance Directorate, Debora Plunkett when asked how real the threat of hacking from China, Russia and other countries was, as saying: "Significant. I don't know how else to describe it."

Even worse she said that: "Some of today's national cyber actors don't seem to be bound by any sense of restraint." Meaning state sponsored cyber-attacks are out of control and state actors behave recklessly.

Again the White House is demonizing China and Russia which they claim are attempting to commit computer espionage in a wide range of areas and for wide ranging reasons. This and other false propaganda about massive attacks on critical infrastructure is designed to terrify the American populace into giving away even more of their freedoms and rights, yet despite this the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 failed and there are not public cries begging for more “protection”.

According to the US media the Obama executive order bears a striking resemblance to the Cybersecurity Act of 2012 which failed to be passed by Congress. Many also say that an executive order in this instance violates Article 1, Section 1 of the US Constitution which says: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” Nowhere in the US Constitution does it say that if a bill is not passed the president can single-handedly decide to make a law himself.

The practice of using executive orders is a controversial one which many see as a tool of an “Imperial President” as they allow the president to unilaterally and without oversight or public debate pass laws that may not be in the public interest. Former US President George Bush was famous for issues such orders many making crimes such as torture illegal after the fact and other designed to protect him and his administration from bothersome oversight, such as an executive order limited access to presidential papers.

The greatest fear regarding this executive order is that a partnership between the government and corporations under the guise of “security” to jointly control the entire US electronic grid is a step to merging corporate and state power, a condition which is better known as corporate fascism.

There may be a real threat here, but the question lies, from where?
