CIA Hacking tools and procedures


Just when you thought your iPhone is the most secure mobile phone, the CIA goes and hacks it to listen, watch and track you. And they can do the same with others. And they can bypass anti-virus and firewalls on your Windows! And did you hear? They can listen and read your Whatsapp, Signal and Telegram messages despite totally secure encryption (they just pick you up before the stuff gets encrypted). Thousands of pages and millions lines of code have been released by Wikileaks. Now think about this, if the CIA can do it then then Russians can do it. And ASIS can do it and who knows, maybe even your state police can do it! LOL. TIme to get rid of mobile phones, computers and televisions. Oh, yes, they also can hack cars.

Advanced Surveillance Course

Advanced Surveillance Training Course May 2017

Our friends over at ASSI International ran this course a couple of weeks ago and crikey, it went down well. And as they didn't have enough space for more participants they've been under pressure to run this "once a year" (LOL) course again, so here is your chance to learn what the true professionals do. And you better hold on to your seat because this stuff is not for the faint-hearted. The trainer is Adrian Francis and there's hardly anyone in Australia with his kind of experience and knowledge. Don't say we didn't warn you!

Spousebusters busted?

Brett Sutcliffe

Private detective Brett Sutcliffe, 37, has failed to cover his own tracks after a run in the law that should have blacklisted him from the industry. The founder of PI agency Spousebusters has been operating without a licence after a conviction in 2008 for impersonating an Australian Federal Police officer and menacing an elderly woman in North Bondi. A Fairfax Media investigation has found that his attempts to have his licence re-instated have been rejected twice by the NSW Police yet he continues to run the nation-wide agency.

Store and Forward Bugs

Electronic Bug for Store and Forward data

Store and Forward Bugs are Child’s Play

What if a TSCM sweep conducted the night prior to an important meeting detected no suspicious transmissions and the real time monitoring also indicated no suspect communications? Does that mean no eavesdropping took place? Not necessarily… Audio and or video data could have been recorded and scheduled to be transmitted at a later date. This eavesdropping technique is often termed as Store and Forward Bugging.

The concept of ‘Store and Forward’ bugs is not new; however, such devices are (thankfully) generally not readily available over the counter at the local ‘Spy’ shop or EBay, they can be expensive and in our research, sometimes restricted to law enforcement..

West Papua

West Papua Freedom Demonstration

We support West Papua freedom. Freedom and independence from Indonesian brutality and oppresion.

You might have heard that a West Papua supporter displayed a West Papua flag the other day on the roof of the Indon consul general's premises in Melbourne. You might also have seen on the news that the Indon military has suspended all military cooperation with Australia after some Indonesian soldiers on training in WA were exposed to West Papua freedom material. Can you believe it? The Indonesians slapping us over the wrists and suspend training? Hey guys, we are funding your brutal and corrupt military! So that you continue in West Papua and more efficiently kill and brutalise locals. And then, wow, Indonesia’s foreign minister "urges" Australian authorities to act against the protester who hoisted a West Papuan flag.

Of course our govt via our foreign minister and that woman, what's her name, the defence minister, promptly climb up the backsides of the Indon government to assure them we are all hunky-dory with their deal and their so-called sovereignity of West Paupa. Says something about Australia supporting human rights, right? But hang on, did you know this has been going on for more than 40 years? West Papuans have been abused and displaced and killed and we, and the world, has stood by with our collective heads in the sand?

Check this info out and speak up! http://www.huffingtonpost.com/benny-wenda/indonesias-brutal-crackdo_b_10244572.html | https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Papua_conflict | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bsONXIMGatw | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbbndM9U4Fs

And while you're at it, get a T-shirt to support independence for West Papua.

Walls have ears... and so do watches

Smart watch

As someone once wrote, “With the introduction of the Internet of Things, comes the Internet of Evil Things” and this is also apparent with BYO devices, including smart watches, to the work place. In the modern world of corporate espionage and IP theft, corporate security protocols should include regular Technical Surveillance Countermeasures (TSCM) during which sweep teams survey for surreptitious listening / recording / transmitting devices (in their various forms) and hidden cameras, particularly within the executive suite of offices and board rooms. Typically, if a board..

Justice. Finally.

Eddie's off to prison!

Mum always said you must not rejoice in another's suffering. Sorry mum, but I can't help it - hurray! And good riddance to bad rubbish. Eddie Obeid the corrup politician will have that snide smirk wiped off his face as he spends the next three years in prison. He will have plenty of time to contemplate his shrinking fortune and further charges that are pending against him. Never know, might get lucky and get another three years!

You can be infected by a banner ad PNG image

Turns out that some big news media sites were running ad banner capable of infecting your computer with a variety of nasty stuff. You didn't have to do anything except view the web page that displayed the ad. This exploit is capable of concealing maliscious code within the image and it triggered a series of events to retrieve some bad Flash code which got fed into your browser and before you could say what's going on, you were infected and your internet banking, etc etc was exposed to bad people. The problem is, you didn't actually become aware anything happened until your bank balance shrunk.

All this just by visiting a legitimate major media website? Yes. If you are a little bit technicall minded you should have an interesting read of it here.

Duck Duck Go search engine

You know, don't you, that Google etc etc track you and log every search you run. And then the government etc can look up to see what and when you searched. DuckDuckGo does not keep logs, does not track you.
