UNVEILED – Cyber Command Suffers Second Defeat, Dump It

Cyber Command Suffers Second Defeat, Dump It

First Cyber Command Defeat:

Cyber Command suffered its second defeat with the win of Edward Snowden. The first defeat was won by Bradley Manning. This suggests Cybercom deserves dissolution and a better command instituted, or, best, nothing like it.

The commander for both losses, General Keith Alexander, has to go. And a new, agile Cybercom, if it is to endure, needs to be separated from the venerable, deeply experienced, albeit sclerotic, National Security Agency. Different missions require different enabling legislation, leadership, funding, policy, staffing, training, operation and security.

An effective Cybercom may not be possible within the military culture of tradition, over-staffing, minutely specified military occupation specialty, heirarchical rank, medieval separation of officers from enlisted members, advancement in rank by longevity and favoritism, special training for combat, and further divided between military and civilian — the latter further fragmented between inside civilians and outside contractors with multiple sub-contractors.

The legislation and implementation of this complex traditional, command-driven organization assures it will not be capable of handling the challenges of cyber swarming, rapid evolution of technology and techniques — much of it grown outside established institutions — youthful contempt for authority, national and international disloyalty and disinterest, and most of all, ingrained insurgency.

For this insurgency, outwitting national security establishments is considered to be sport, a game, a test of prowess, bragging rights, and it is winning in cyber space, only periodically, laughingly infrequently, defeated, caputured and imprisoned by use of legacy, lumbering, clumsy, expensive, failure-and-excuse-prone mechanisms, in which legacy leaders like NSA, FBI, CIA, White House and Congress — supported by contractors, lobbyists and donors — can only dissimulate, apologize and promise to do better with more funding and more draconian crack-down on civil liberties.

Cyber Command is a failure — sibling of Department of Homeland Security — a boondoggle, a huge transfer of funds to the cybersecurity (and homeland security) industry from legacy military pork barrels. Thousands of suitably-skilled youngsters — most self-trained by a subversive culture hostile to authority — have been enlisted, hired and contracted to run cyber offensive and defensive operations under the rigidly ranked command of military officers accustomed to obedience and respect of rank.

Cybersecurity contracting — commercial and institutional — is an equally great failure. It too is a boondoggle, spoiled rotten with generous and laxly-overseen funding, often led by ex-military officers and those long accustomed to military grade perquisites, protected by secrecy, back-slapping, insider favoritism, laziness, lack of competition, forgiveness of corruption, shallow and classified IG investigation, all the attributes of its single customer, the national security consortium beloved of governments and autocrats.

No wonder the coddled and well-paid youngsters defy, dance around, ridicule and outrun these balloon-headed officers and liquored-contractors, this is what they have done most of their teenage and adult lives. Their loyalty is to their own culture, open, non-secret, disputatious, daring and fun-filled, most emphatically not venerated-military or rich-contractor grade.

What would a replacement for Cybercom be like? Not military, not commercial, not NGO, then what?

Plenty of cyber initiatives are underway which demonstrate effective alternatives to heirarchical military, commercial and NGO cyber deadwood. They have been created and are run by some of the most brilliant brains and imaginations in the world, agile, cheap, mostly volunteer and leaderless, disputatious, humorous, dismissive of authority of any kind, gov, mil, com, edu, org.

Don’t expect to hire or contract or academicize them. The best of them do not go inside institutions — except to social engineer and disclose the secrets of authoritative corruption.

Examples abound: just read the official demonizations of outsiders spilling insider secrets of gov, mil, com and ngo.

Instead of wasting treasure on dim-witted cybercommands listen to those secret-spilling demons, better understood as angels out-dancing the pinheads.

Der Anfang vom Ende des “GoMoPa”-“Nawito”-Google-Terrors

BGH-Urteil zu Suchmaschinen
Richter nehmen Google-Vorschläge unter die Lupe
Ein Kosmetikhersteller hat vor dem BGH ein wegweisendes Urteil erstritten: Künftig können Suchmaschinenbetreiber für Verletzungen des Persönlichkeitsrechts bei sogenannten Autocomplete-Vorschlägen haftbar gemacht werden.

Von Michael Reissenberger, SWR

Gernot Lehr, der Anwalt von Bettina Wulff, die ihren Ruf gegen Rotlichtgerüchte vor Gericht verteidigt, hatte den richtigen Riecher, als er kürzlich eine Vertagung des laufenden Verfahrens erwirkte. Denn das jüngste Urteil des Bundesgerichtshofs (BGH) sorgt künftig für Schutz für alle, die sich beim Googeln ihres Namens von Suchvorschlägen beleidigt fühlen.

Die Bundesrichter nehmen jetzt die Betreiber von Suchmaschinen stärker in die Pflicht. Sie müssen zwar nicht selber das Netz auf alle Suchwortkombinationen, die vielleicht Anstoß erregen könnten, durchpflügen. Denn – so sagen die Bundesrichter – im Prinzip sei gegen eine Suchwortergänzung nichts einzuwenden. Schließlich würden von einer Rechenmaschine zunächst nur Suchvorschläge von Internetnutzern ausgewertet.

Geldentschädigung für Rufschädigungen

Aber sie müssen spätestens reagieren, wenn Betroffene auf solche Rufschädigungen per Internet hinweisen. Die Internetunternehmen müssen dann zumindest rechtswidrige Verletzungen des Persönlichkeitsrechts abstellen und bei weiteren Verstößen auch eine Geldentschädigung bezahlen.

Schutz der Persönlichkeitsrecht hat Vorrang
tagesschau 20:00 Uhr, 14.05.2013, Gigi Deppe, SWR
Download der Videodatei
Ein Kosmetikhersteller hat dieses Urteil für Google-Geschädigte erstritten. Er sah seinen Namen zu Unrecht mit den Kombinationswörtern Scientology und Betrug in den Schmutz gezogen und bestand darauf, dass er in keinerlei Zusammenhang mit diesem als geldgierig verrufenen Sektenbetrieb steht oder stand. Zudem sei ihm kein Betrug vorzuwerfen, es habe auch kein entsprechendes Ermittlungsverfahren gegeben. Die Suchergebnisse von Google würden auch keine einzige Seite auflisten, die eine Verbindung zwischen dem Kosmetikhersteller und den beiden Ergänzungswörtern Scientology und Betrug aufweisen.

Ihm hatten Kölner Richter in zwei Instanzen den Schutz gegen den Internetriesen verweigert. Es seien schließlich nur mathematische Effekte je nach Suchworthäufigkeit, kein Internetnutzer nehme für bare Münze, welche Suchwortvorschläge da kommen, so hatten die Kölner Juristen argumentiert.

Googles Autocomplete-Funktion
Ein praktischer Helfer mit Risiken | mehr
Google allzu dickfellig

Doch nun muss Google solche Beschwerden wegen Rufmords ernster nehmen. Auch im Fall von Bettina Wulff dürfte mit dem jetzigen Bundesgerichtshofurteil klar sein, dass der Internetkonzern sich in den letzten Monaten allzu dickfellig verhalten hat. Die Rotlichtgerüchte um die Präsidentengattin, die der Google-Suchwortmodus verbreitet hat, waren ja schon seit längerem öffentliches Thema, bis sich Bettina Wulff entschloss, dagegen vorzugehen. Hier dürfte sehr spannend werden, ob und welche Geldentschädigung hier verlangt werden kann.

Der Bundesgerichtshof hatte auch im vorliegenden Fall noch nicht darüber zu entscheiden, weil er das Kölner Musterverfahren nochmal an die untere Instanz zur Nachbesserung zurückgeschickt hat. Die Bundesrichter kündigten aber im Grundsatz bei solchen Google-Rufschädigungen einen Anspruch auf Geldentschädigung zumindest in engen Grenzen an.

Unveiled – Seduced by Secrets – Inside the STASI Tech World – The E-Book – Free Download


In addition to revealing who the spies were, where they worked, and why they did what they did, the Rosenholz material unmasks an incredibly bloated human web of recruiters, instructors, couriers, and residents. The spiderweb was designed to support an agent, but was not cost-effective while it ensnared the secrets of the West. The Stasi simply overestimated the power of stolen technological secrets to solve its economic problems, and the enormous spy infrastructure investment produced a very small return.”

“Scientific-technical intelligence gathering for the MfS usually meant recruiting agents who had access to important Western companies like IBM. Occasionally foreigners volunteered to contribute to the MfS’s scientific developments. An unusual offer came in the mid-sixties from an American computer specialist, Henry Sherwood, who wanted to help East Germany’s data processing industry. Born in Berlin under the name Heinz Weizenbaum, he fled the Nazis in 1936 and arrived in America, where he changed his name while in the U.S. Army. His brother was the famous MIT computer professor Joseph Weizenbaum. Sherwood was invited to direct the Diebold European research program in 1966 and invited the East German Data Processing and Business Machines Company to take part in the program.

Suspicious that Sherwood might be an agent for a capitalist company, the Stasi set four informants on him at the Diebold Conference and between 1966 and 1969 launched ‘Action World Stature’ to try to use the material from the various conferences. Unfortunately, the Stasi staff members did not know English and could not effectively use the material. When Sherwood visited Erfurt, he brought IBM manuals and other material with him, which the Stasi photographed. When there was an opportunity for a German to go to America to acquire more knowledge about data processing, the Stasi vetoed the trip because they were worried that the scientist might be recruited and never come back.

And that was the main contradiction the Stasi presents us with: on the one hand, they vigorously supported state programs by acquiring the needed embargoed or secret technology. On the other hand, security concerns made them work against their own interests by restricting the needed international travel of scientists and by imposing other harmful security measures.

Cloudflare Inside View – Biggest DDos Attack in History on Spamhaus

At CloudFlare, we deal with large DDoS attacks every day. Usually, these attacks are directed at large companies or organizations that are reluctant to talk about their details. It’s fun, therefore, whenever we have a customer that is willing to let us tell the story of an attack they saw and how we mitigated it. This is one of those stories.


Yesterday, Tuesday, March 19, 2013, CloudFlare was contacted by the non-profit anti-spam organization Spamhaus. They were suffering a large DDoS attack against their website and asked if we could help mitigate the attack.


Spamhaus provides one of the key backbones that underpins much of the anti-spam filtering online. Run by a tireless team of volunteers, Spamhaus patrols the Internet for spammers and publishes a list of the servers they use to send their messages in order to empower email system administrators to filter unwanted messages. Spamhaus’s services are so pervasive and important to the operation of the Internet’s email architecture that, when a lawsuit threatened to shut the service down, industry experts testified [PDF, full disclosure: I wrote the brief back in the day] that doing so risked literally breaking email since Spamhaus is directly or indirectly responsible for filtering as much as 80% of daily spam messages.

Beginning on March 18, the Spamhaus site came under attack. The attack was large enough that the Spamhaus team wasn’t sure of its size when they contacted us. It was sufficiently large to fully saturate their connection to the rest of the Internet and knock their site offline. These very large attacks, which are known as Layer 3 attacks, are difficult to stop with any on-premise solution. Put simply: if you have a router with a 10Gbps port, and someone sends you 11Gbps of traffic, it doesn’t matter what intelligent software you have to stop the attack because your network link is completely saturated.


While we don’t know who was behind this attack, Spamhaus has made plenty of enemies over the years. Spammers aren’t always the most lovable of individuals and Spamhaus has been threatened, sued, and DDoSed regularly. Spamhaus’s blocklists are distributed via DNS and there is a long list of volunteer organizations that mirror their DNS infrastructure in order to ensure it is resilient to attacks. The website, however, was unreachable.

Filling Up the Series of Tubes

Very large Layer 3 attacks are nearly always originated from a number of sources. These many sources each send traffic to a single Internet location, effectively creating a tidal wave that overwhelms the target’s resources. In this sense, the attack is distributed (the first D in DDoS — Distributed Denial of Service). The sources of attack traffic can be a group of individuals working together (e.g., the Anonymous LOIC model, although this is Layer 7 traffic and even at high volumes usually much smaller in volume than other methods), a botnet of compromised PCs, a botnet of compromised servers, misconfigured DNS resolvers, or even home Internet routers with weak passwords.

Since an attacker attempting to launch a Layer 3 attack doesn’t care about receiving a response to the requests they send, the packets that make up the attack do not have to be accurate or correctly formatted. Attackers will regularly spoof all the information in the attack packets, including the source IP, making it look like the attack is coming from a virtually infinite number of sources. Since packets data can be fully randomized, using techniques like IP filtering even upstream becomes virtually useless.

Spamhaus signed up for CloudFlare on Tuesday afternoon and we immediately mitigated the attack, making the site once again reachable. (More on how we did that below.) Once on our network, we also began recording data about the attack. At first, the attack was relatively modest (around 10Gbps). There was a brief spike around 16:30 UTC, likely a test, that lasted approximately 10 minutes. Then, around 21:30 UTC, the attackers let loose a very large wave.

The graph below is generated from bandwidth samples across a number of the routers that sit in front of servers we use for DDoS scrubbing. The green area represents in-bound requests and the blue line represents out-bound responses. While there is always some attack traffic on our network, it’s easy to see when the attack against Spamhaus started and then began to taper off around 02:30 UTC on March 20, 2013. As I’m writing this at 16:15 UTC on March 20, 2013, it appears the attack is picking up again.

How to Generate a 75Gbps DDoS

The largest source of attack traffic against Spamhaus came from DNS reflection. I’vewritten about these attacks before and in the last year they have become the source of the largest Layer 3 DDoS attacks we see (sometimes well exceeding 100Gbps). Open DNS resolvers are quickly becoming the scourge of the Internet and the size of these attacks will only continue to rise until all providers make a concerted effort to close them. (It also makes sense to implement BCP-38, but that’s a topic for another post another time.)

The basic technique of a DNS reflection attack is to send a request for a large DNS zone file with the source IP address spoofed to be the intended victim to a large number of open DNS resolvers. The resolvers then respond to the request, sending the large DNS zone answer to the intended victim. The attackers’ requests themselves are only a fraction of the size of the responses, meaning the attacker can effectively amplify their attack to many times the size of the bandwidth resources they themselves control.

In the Spamhaus case, the attacker was sending requests for the DNS zone file for to open DNS resolvers. The attacker spoofed the CloudFlare IPs we’d issued for Spamhaus as the source in their DNS requests. The open resolvers responded with DNS zone file, generating collectively approximately 75Gbps of attack traffic. The requests were likely approximately 36 bytes long (e.g. dig ANY @X.X.X.X +edns=0 +bufsize=4096, where X.X.X.X is replaced with the IP address of an open DNS resolver) and the response was approximately 3,000 bytes, translating to a 100x amplification factor.

We recorded over 30,000 unique DNS resolvers involved in the attack. This translates to each open DNS resolver sending an average of 2.5Mbps, which is small enough to fly under the radar of most DNS resolvers. Because the attacker used a DNS amplification, the attacker only needed to control a botnet or cluster of servers to generate 750Mbps — which is possible with a small sized botnet or a handful of AWS instances. It is worth repeating: open DNS resolvers are the scourge of the Internet and these attacks will become more common and large until service providers take serious efforts to close them.

How You Mitigate a 75Gbps DDoS

While large Layer 3 attacks are difficult for an on-premise DDoS solution to mitigate, CloudFlare’s network was specifically designed from the beginning to stop these types of attacks. We make heavy use of Anycast. That means the same IP address is announced from every one of our 23 worldwide data centers. The network itself load balances requests to the nearest facility. Under normal circumstances, this helps us ensure a visitor is routed to the nearest data center on our network.

When there’s an attack, Anycast serves to effectively dilute it by spreading it across our facilities. Since every data center announces the same IP address for any CloudFlare customer, traffic cannot be concentrated in any one location. Instead of the attack being many-to-one, it becomes many-to-many with no single point on the network acting as a bottleneck.

Once diluted, the attack becomes relatively easy to stop at each of our data centers. Because CloudFlare acts as a virtual shield in front of our customers sites, with Layer 3 attacks none of the attack traffic reaches the customer’s servers. Traffic to Spamhaus’s network dropped to below the levels when the attack started as soon as they signed up for our service.

Other Noise

While the majority of the traffic involved in the attack was DNS reflection, the attacker threw in a few other attack methods as well. One was a so-called ACK reflection attack. When a TCP connection is established there is a handshake. The server initiating the TCP session first sends a SYN (for synchronize) request to the receiving server. The receiving server responds with an ACK (for acknowledge). After that handshake, data can be exchanged.

In an ACK reflection, the attacker sends a number of SYN packets to servers with a spoofed source IP address pointing to the intended victim. The servers then respond to the victim’s IP with an ACK. Like the DNS reflection attack, this disguises the source of the attack, making it appear to come from legitimate servers. However, unlike the DNS reflection attack, there is no amplification factor: the bandwidth from the ACKs is symmetrical to the bandwidth the attacker has to generate the SYNs. CloudFlare is configured to drop unmatched ACKs, which mitigates these types of attacks.

Whenever we see one of these large attacks, network operators will write to us upset that we are attacking their infrastructure with abusive DNS queries or SYN floods. In fact, it is their infrastructure that is being used to reflect an attack at us. By working with and educating network operators, they clean up their network which helps to solve the root cause of these large attacks.

History Repeats Itself

Finally, it’s worth noting how similar this battle against DDoS attacks and open DNS relays is with Spamhaus’s original fight. If DDoS is the network scourge of tomorrow, spam was its clear predecessor. Paul Vixie, the father of the DNSBL, set out in 1997 to use DNS to help shut down the spam source of the day: open email relays. These relays were being used to disguise the origin of spam messages, making them more difficult to block. What was needed was a list of mail relays that mail serves could query against and decide whether to accept messages.


While it wasn’t originally designed with the idea in mind, DNS proved a highly scalable and efficient means to distribute a queryable list of open mail relays that email service providers could use to block unwanted messages. Spamhaus arose as one of the most respected and widely used DNSBLs, effectively blocking a huge percentage of daily spam volume.

As open mail relays were shut, spammers turned to virus writers to create botnets that could be used to relay spam. Spamhaus expanded their operations to list the IPs of known botnets, trying to stay ahead of spammers. CloudFlare’s own history grew out of Project Honey Pot, which started as an automated service to track the resources used by spammers and publishes the HTTP:BL.

Today, as Spamhaus’s success has eroded the business model of spammers, botnet operators are increasingly renting their networks to launch DDoS attacks. At the same time, DNSBLs proved that there were many functions that the DNS protocol could be used for, encouraging many people to tinker with installing their own DNS resolvers. Unfortunately, these DNS resolvers are often mis-configured and left open to abuse, making them the DDoS equivalent of the open mail relay.

If you’re running a network, take a second to make sure you’ve closed any open resolvers before DDoS explodes into an even worse problem than it already is.

Bruce Schneier: Whether we like it or not, we’re being tracked all the time on the Internet

Schneier: Our surveillance state is efficient beyond the wildest dreams of George Orwell

He says governments and corporations are working together to keep things that way

Schneier: Slap-on-the-wrist fines notwithstanding, no one is agitating for better privacy laws

Editor’s note: Bruce Schneier is a security technologist and author of “Liars and Outliers: Enabling the Trust Society Needs to Survive.”



That the Internet is a gigantic spying machine has been known since its invention, the security industry has made billions pretending to protect against its spying.

Schneier has also written recently that security does not work, cannot work, that attackers are always going to excell over defenders, due to the economic incentives to attack being greater than those to defend.

Long a top expert selling security services, what is Schneier up to with gloom and doom that is usually associated with selling snake oil — his favorite target. Has his amply promoted 24×7 services been defeated by attackers? Is he keeping that quiet? Is he about to be doxed, has been hit with a blackmail demand, or worse, his defenses compromised? Who else among the experts are colluding with this initiative to admit Internet deception from the git go?

Recall that beloved Peter Neumann and others advocate chucking the current Internet and starting over with better security and privacy basic requirements. Uh huh, and what will take its place, will it be better or more snake oil? And what to do with all that stored data of the world’s greatest spying machine promoted with the complicity of Internet advocates and the security industry?

Pardon, monsieur, foxes in the hen house, comes to mind.

Schneier says in his security-is-doomed-to-fail piece a public discussion is needed on what to do, the experts don’t have answers. That’s a good start after years of experts promising to do better next time, meanwhile trust open source, trust us.

Where does snake oil end and “something better” begin? Is something better ever not snake oil? Is a public discussion of an issue never not rigged in favor of the organizers? Is tumultous public discussion never not preamble to a coup justified as needed to control the mob who has gotten out of hand, who voted the wrong way, who attacked the leaders? Who hacked the experts?

Coups are always justified as needed for security, and who Machiavelli’s the coup masters other than security and propaganda experts yearning to maintain privilege and reputation.

Coups are not always obvious, the most effective are hardly noticed.

Proven – China ‘aiding hacker attacks on west’

The building in Shanghai that hosts the Chinese military's Unit 61398

The Chinese army has launched hundreds of cyber-attacks against western companies and defence groups from a nondescript office building in Shanghai, according to a report that warns hackers have stolen vast amounts of data from their targets.

Mandiant, a security company that has been investigating attacks against western organisations for over six years, said in a report (PDF)the attacks came from a 12-storey building belonging to the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) general staff’s department, also known as Unit 61398.

Mandiant said it believed a hacking network named the Comment Crew or the Shanghai Group was based inside the compound, in a rundown residential neighbourhood. Although the report fails directly to place the hackers inside the building, it argues there is no other logical reason why so many attacks have emanated from such a small area.

“It is time to acknowledge the threat is originating in China, and we wanted to do our part to arm and prepare security professionals to combat that threat effectively,” said the report.

The discovery will further raise the temperature in the intergovernmental cyberwars, which have heated up in recent years as the US, IsraelIran, China and UK have all used computer subterfuge to undermine rival state or terrorist organisations. One security expert warned that companies in high-profile fields should assume they will be targeted and hacked, and build systems that will fence sensitive data off from each other.

Rik Ferguson, global vice-president of security research at the data security company Trend Micro, said: “We need to concentrate less on building castles and assuming they will be impervious, and more on building better dungeons so that when people get in they can’t get anything else.” .

Mandiant says Unit 61398 could house “hundreds or thousands” of people and has military-grade, high-speed fibre-optic connections from China Mobile, the world’s largest telecoms carrier. “The nature of Unit 61398’s work is considered by China to be a state secret; however, we believe it engages in harmful computer network operations,” Mandiant said in the report.

It said Unit 61398 had been operating since 2006, and was one of the most prolific hacking groups “in terms of quantity of information stolen”. This it estimated at hundreds of terabytes, enough for thousands of 3D designs and blueprints.

“APT1”, as Mandiant calls it, is only one of 20 groups Mandiant says has carried out scores of hacking attacks against businesses and organisations in the west, including companies that work in strategic industries such as US power and water infrastructure.

A typical attack would leave software that hid its presence from the user or administrator and silently siphon data to a remote server elsewhere on the internet at the instruction of a separate “command and control” (C&C) computer. By analysing the hidden software, the pattern of connections and links from the C&C server, the team at Mandiant said they were confident of the source of the threat.

A Chinese foreign ministry spokesman denied the government was behind the attacks, saying: “Hacking attacks are transnational and anonymous. Determining their origins is extremely difficult. We don’t know how the evidence in this so-called report can be tenable. Arbitrary criticism based on rudimentary data is irresponsible, unprofessional and not helpful in resolving the issue.”

But Ferguson told the Guardian: “This is a pretty compelling report, with evidence collected over a prolonged period of time. It points very strongly to marked Chinese involvement.”

Mandiant, based in Alexandria, Virginia, in the US, investigated the New York Times break-in, for which it suggested Chinese sources could be to blame.

President Barack Obama is already beefing up US security, introducing an executive order in his State of the Union speech this month that would let the government work with the private sector to fend off hacking. But it will take until February 2014 to have a final version ready for implementation.

The revelation comes days after the New York TimesWall Street Journaland Washington Post, as well as the social networks Facebook and Twitter, said they had been subjected to “highly sophisticated” hacks that in some cases focused on correspondents writing about China and its government.

Separate investigations by the computer company Dell, working with the news company Bloombergtracked down another alleged hacker, Zhang Changhe, who has written a number of papers on PC hacking. Zhang works at the PLA’s “information engineering university” in Zhengzhou, Henan province, north-central China.

The allegations will raise the temperature in the continuing cyberwar between the west and China, which has been steadily rising since the Pentagon and MI6 uncovered Titan Rain, a scheme that tried to siphon data from the Pentagon and the House of Commons in 2006, and which one security expert said at the time dated back at least to 2004.

Ferguson suggested that western governments were also carrying out attacks against Chinese targets – “but that’s not a culture which would open up about being hit. I would be surprised and disappointed if most western nations don’t have a cybersecurity force.”

The Stuxnet virus, which hit Iran’s uranium reprocessing plant in 2010, is believed to have been written jointly by the US and Israel, while Iranian sources are believed to have hacked companies that issue email security certificates so that they can crack secure connections used by Iranian dissidents on Google’s Gmail system. China is also reckoned to have been behind the hacking of Google’s email servers in that country in late 2009, in an operation that files from WikiLeaks suggested was inspired by the Beijing government.

A timeline of government-sponsored hacking attacks


2004 suspected: Chinese group in Shanghai begins probing US companies and military targets.


2005: Titan Rain” pulls data from the Pentagon’s systems, and a specialist says of a December 2005 attack on the House of Commons computer system that “The degree of sophistication was extremely high. They were very clever programmers.”


2007: Estonia’s government and other internet services are knocked offline by a coordinated attack from more than a million computers around the world – reckoned to have been run from a group acting at the urging of the Russian government. Nobody is ever arrested over the attack.


2008: Russia’s government is suspected of carrying out a cyberattack to knock out government and other websites inside Georgia, with which it is fighting a border skirmish over the territory of Ossetia.


December 2009: Google’s email systems in China are hacked by a group which tries to identify and take over the accounts of Chinese dissidents. Google withdraws its search engine from the Chinese mainland in protest at the actions. Wikileaks cables suggest that the Chinese government was aware of the hacking.


2010: The Flame virus begins silently infecting computers in Iran. Itincorporates cutting-edge cryptography breakthroughs which would require world-class experts to write. That is then used to infect Windows PCs via the Windows Update mechanism which normally creates a cryptographically secure link to Microsoft. Instead, Flame puts software that watches every keystroke and frame on the PC. Analysts say that only a “wealthy” nation state could have written the virus, which breaks new ground in encryption.


The Stuxnet worm is discovered to have been affecting systems inside Iran’s uranium reprocessing establishment, passing from Windows PCs to the industrial systems which control centrifuges that separate out heavier uranium. The worm makes the centrifuges spin out of control, while suggesting on their control panel that they are operating normally – and so break them. Iran denies that the attack has affected its project. The US and Israel are later fingered as being behind the code.


September 2011: a new virus that silently captures data from transactions in Middle Eastern online banking is unleashed. The principal targets use Lebanese banks. It is not identified until August 2012, when Russian security company Kaspersky discovers the name “Gauss” embedded inside it. The company says the malware it is “nation state-sponsored” – probably by a western state seeking to trace transactions by specific targets.


2012: About 30,000 Windows PCs at Saudi Aramco, the world’s most valuable company, are rendered unusable after a virus called “Shamoon” wipes and corrupts data and the part of the hard drive needed to “bootstrap” the machine when it is turned on. In the US, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta described Shamoon as “one of the most destructive viruses ever” and suggested it could be used to launch an attack as destructive as the 9/11 attacks of 2001.

SECRET from PI – DHS-FBI Suspicious Activity Reporting Bulletin: Recruiting

(U//FOUO) Terrorists are attempting to recruit new members in the United States and overseas to support their operations, obtain funding, and conduct terrorist attacks.  For example, in May 2012, Maryland-based Mohammad Hassan Khalid pled guilty to attempting to use the Internet to recruit individuals who had the ability to travel to and around Europe to conduct terrorist acts, in addition to providing logistical and financial support to terrorists.  In prior cases of recruitment, individuals who were willing to participate in terrorist acts became involved with known and suspected terrorists, participated in paramilitary training abroad, or tried to acquire small arms and build explosives.

(U//FOUO) The following SAR incident from the NSI shared space is an example of an individual being recruited to commit violence.  The example is provided for situational awareness and training:

— (U//FOUO) An individual contacted the police to report being approached by two subjects about supplying firearms and participating in an attack on a military installation.  The subjects were arrested and charged with conspiracy to murder officers and employees of the US Government after being observed conducting surveillance of targets, testing security, and acquiring weapons for the attack.  One of the subjects pled guilty to the charges and is awaiting sentencing.

Cyberattacken wie bei uns – Chinesische Hacker spionieren New York Times aus

NEW YORK TIMES – Chinesische Hacker spionieren US-Tageszeitung aus

Hacker sind in Computer der New York Times eingedrungen. Sie stahlen Passwörter und spionierten E-Mail-Konten aus. Sicherheitsexperten verfolgten die Angriffe nach China zurück.

Unbekannte haben sich über Monate Zugang zu den Computersystemen der Tageszeitung New York Times (NYT) verschafft. Die Sicherheitsexperten konnten die Angriffe nach China zurückverfolgen. Anlass war mutmaßlich ein Bericht über die Familie des scheidenden Premierministers Wen Jiabao – die Angriffe begannen kurz danach.

Die Angreifer drangen in die Systeme der New York Times ein. Dort installierten sie Schadsoftware und verschafften sich Zugang zu den Arbeitsplatzrechnern von 53 Mitarbeitern, von denen die meisten nicht im Newsroom arbeiten. Zudem kopierten die Angreifer die Passwörter aller NYT-Mitarbeiter. Es sollen keine Kundendaten entwendet worden sein.

Warnung vor Erscheinen

Die Angriffe schienen in direktem Zusammenhang mit dem Bericht über den chinesischen Politiker zu stehen: Sie hätten unmittelbar nach der Veröffentlichung am 25. Oktober 2012 begonnen, berichtet die Tageszeitung. Kurz zuvor sei die Zeitung von chinesischen Behörden vor Angriffen gewarnt worden. Die Tageszeitung habe sich an den Netzbetreiber AT&T gewandt, und der habe direkt, nachdem der Artikel online erschienen war, Aktivitäten festgestellt, die auf einen Computerangriff hinwiesen. Das NYT engagierte daraufhin das Sicherheitsunternehmen Mandiant und informierte das FBI.

Die Analyse der Mandiant-Experten ergab, dass der Angriff schon früher begonnen hatte: Im September, kurz vor dem Ende der Recherchen zu dem Artikel, waren die Hacker erstmals in die NYT-Computer eingedrungen und hatten das Passwortsystem gehackt. So konnten sie sich Zugriff auf die E-Mail-Konten von David Barboza, Leiter des NYT-Büros in Schanghai und Autor des Berichts, und Jim Yardley, Leiter des Südostasienbüros in Indien und davor Chef des Pekinger Büros, verschaffen.

Wie es scheint, kopierten die Angreifer jedoch keine Dokumente, sondern suchten nach den Namen von Informanten. Auch hatten sie kein Interesse daran, die Computersysteme der Zeitung komplett lahmzulegen – obwohl sie, wie die Zeitung zugibt, die Möglichkeit dazu gehabt hätten.


Wie die Angreifer den Zugang zu den NYT-Computern erlangten, ist noch nicht geklärt. Die Experten vermuten, dass sie E-Mails mit verseuchten Anhängen oder Links verschickt haben, über die Schadsoftware auf die Computer geschleust wurde. Inzwischen seien alle Zugänge, die die Hacker nutzten, geschlossen.

Um ihre Spuren zu verwischen, waren die Angreifer zuerst in Computersysteme von US-Universitäten eingedrungen, so dass es auf den ersten Blick so aussah, als kämen die Angriffe von dort. Chinesische Hacker gehen nach Angaben der von der NYT beauftragten Sicherheitsexperten häufig so vor. Auch die verwendete Schadsoftware wies Merkmale auf, die auf Akteure aus China schließen lassen. Schließlich gelang es den Sicherheitsexperten, die Angriffe zu den Universitätscomputern zurückzuverfolgen, die als Ausgangspunkt von Angriffen des chinesischen Militärs auf Lieferanten des US-Militärs gelten.

Hacker bei Bloomberg

Die NYT scheint indes nicht das einzige Medienunternehmen zu sein, das chinesische Hacker ins Visier genommen haben: 2012 wurden bei Bloomberg News Computer mit Schadsoftware infiziert. Anlass war mutmaßlich ein vergleichbarer Bericht der Nachrichtenagentur über Xi Jinping, seinerzeit noch Vizepräsident und inzwischen Chef der Kommunistischen Partei Chinas und designierter Staatschef.

Wen ist seit 2003 Premierminister der Volksrepublik China. Zuvor war er fünf Jahre lang Vizepremier. Im Oktober 2012 deckte die NYT auf, dass Wens Familie während seiner Amtszeit ein immenses Vermögen angehäuft habe – umgerechnet rund über 2 Milliarden Euro sollen Wens Angehörige, vor allem seine Frau Zhang Peili, zusammengetragen haben. Die Behörden reagierten umgehend auf den Bericht: Sie sperrten den Zugang zur Website der Zeitung.

Was wusste Wen?

Unklar ist Wens Rolle: Zwar ist seine Familie während seiner Amtszeit reich geworden – unter anderem aufgrund wirtschaftlicher Entscheidungen, die Wen mitverantwortet hat. Er selbst soll aber von den Aktivitäten seiner Frau wenig angetan gewesen sein. Laut einer der von Wikileaks veröffentlichten Botschaftsdepeschen soll er sogar deswegen eine Scheidung erwogen haben. Nach dem NYT-Bericht forderte er eine Untersuchung und bot an, dafür die Vermögensverhältnisse der Familie offenzulegen.

Wen wird turnusmäßig nach zwei Amtszeiten von je fünf Jahren sein Amt in diesem Frühjahr aufgeben. Auf dem 18. Parteitag der Kommunistischen Partei wurde im Herbst 2012 die neue Führungsriege vorgestellt. Wens Nachfolger wird voraussichtlich Li Keqiang, der das Amt im März übernehmen soll. Im Vorfeld des Führungswechsels gab es einen Machtkampf zwischen zwei Parteiflügeln.






“Sind Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel und Finanzminister Wolfgang Schäuble Deutschlands bekannteste Hehler ?” „Sicher nein“, werden Sie jetzt sagen und fragen: „Wer behauptet diesen staatszersetzenden Schwachsinn ?“„Fonds & Friends-Herausgeber“ Peter Ehlers (wenn der Name stimmt ?) und der Ost-Berliner NACHRICHTENDIENST”  “GoMoPa” bezeichneten die deutsche Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel und den deutschen Bundesfinanzminister Wolfgang Schäuble als “kriminelle Hehler” und als Deutschlands „bekannteste Hehler“. Original-Zitat Peter Ehlers (wenn denn wengistens der Name stimmt ?) : „Wolfgang Schäuble, Finanzminister unter Kanzlerin Angela Merkel. Beide sind sich nicht immer einig. Jetzt schon: Sie wollen als Staat, von deutschen Steuergeldern bezahlt, ein neues staatliches Geschäft eröffnen: Hehlerei.Peter Ehlers,Herausgeber DAS INVESTMENTEin Kommentar von Peter Ehlers, Herausgeber DAS INVESTMENTEin durchaus einträgliches Geschäft, das nur einen Haken hat: Es ist illegal. Schäuble hat dafür eine lustige Rechtsauffassung: Er sieht den Deal, den der damalige Finanzminister Peer Steinbrück („das beste Geschäft meines Lebens“) machte, für sich als Rechtfertigung. Frei nach dem billigen Motto: Wenn mein Vorgänger kriminell war, darf ich das ja wohl auch sein.“Das heisst nicht nur Schäuble handelt illegal und kriminell – im ganz grossen Stil, sondern auch die Vorgänger Ex-Bundes-Finanzminister Peer Steinbrück und Ex-Bundeskanzler gerhard Schröder…Und mich bezeichnet Peter Ehlers (wenn denn wengistens der Name stimmt ?) als “Internet-Terroristen”, „Erpresser“, „Gewohnheitsverbrecher“ und „Idioten“, ach ja meinen akademischen Titel Magister Artium täusche ich auch vor, sagen Peter Ehlers und GoMoPa, unisono..
Dies ist bezeichnet für die psychotische Wahnwelt dieser mutmasslich kommunistischen Delinquenten aus dem Osten Deutschlands.
Zum Tatbestand:
Im deutschen Strafrecht ist die Beamtenbeleidigung kein eigener Tatbestand. Ein Beamter ist hier nicht anders gestellt als ein anderer Bürger. Es handelt sich also um eine „normale“ Beleidigung gemäß § 185StGB.
Dennoch gibt es bei der Beleidigung eines Amtsträgers, der nicht zwingend Beamter sein muss, eine verfahrensrechtliche Besonderheit: Während die Straftat grundsätzlich nur auf Antrag des Verletzten verfolgt wird, kann gemäß § 194 Abs. 3 StGB bei Amtsträgern auch der Dienstvorgesetzte des Beleidigten den Strafantrag stellen:
„Ist die Beleidigung gegen einen Amtsträger, einen für den öffentlichen Dienst besonders Verpflichteten oder einen Soldaten der Bundeswehr während der Ausübung seines Dienstes oder in Beziehung auf seinen Dienst begangen, so wird sie auch auf Antrag des Dienstvorgesetzten verfolgt. Richtet sich die Tat gegen eine Behörde oder eine sonstige Stelle, die Aufgaben der öffentlichen Verwaltung wahrnimmt, so wird sie auf Antrag des Behördenleiters oder des Leiters der aufsichtführenden Behörde verfolgt. Dasselbe gilt für Träger von Ämtern und für Behörden der Kirchen und anderen Religionsgesellschaften des öffentlichen Rechts.“
Außerdem wird von der Staatsanwaltschaft in der Regel das öffentliche Interesse an der Strafverfolgung bejaht, so dass es weitaus seltener zur Verweisung auf den Privatklageweg oder zur Einstellung des Verfahrens nach § 153, 153a StPO kommt.
In der Praxis zieht die Beleidigung vor allem von (Polizei-)Beamten meist Geldstrafen nach sich. Bei mehrfach wegen solcher Delikte vorbestraften Personen sind in der Praxis schon kurze Freiheitsstrafen von z. B. 3 Monaten ohne Bewährung vorgekommen.
Beleidigung von Amtsträgern”Prozesse-Dieter” verurteilt“Prozesse-Dieter”, prozessfreudiger Sozialhilfeempfänger aus Ratingen, ist zu einem Jahr Haft verurteilt worden. Das Amtsgericht in Ratingen bei Düsseldorf sprach den als “König der Kläger” bekannt gewordenen ehemaligen 73-jährigen Sportlehrer wegen 44 Beleidigungen von Amtsträgern wie Beamten, Richtern und Rechtspflegern schuldig.
Per Postkarten hatte sie der Senior mit Fäkalausdrücken überzogen. Das Gericht setzte sich über den psychiatrischen Gutachter hinweg, der den Angeklagten als schuldunfähig eingestuft hatte, weil dieser an einer paranoiden Persönlichkeitsstörung leide.
Dies trifft möglicherweise auch auf die Delinquenten Peter Ehlers/”GoMoPa” zu.Zum Thema Wirecard und “GoMoPa” schreibt das “Handelsblatt:Finanzaufsicht untersucht Kursachterbahn bei Wirecard07.04.2010, 07:01 Uhrexklusiv Die Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht BaFin hat aufgrund der merkwürdigen Kursturbulenzen der Wirecard-Aktie eine förmliche Untersuchung des Falles eingeleitet.

Die BaFin prüft mögliche Manipulationen. Quelle: PressebildFRANKFURT. Die Bundesanstalt für Finanzdienstleistungsaufsicht BaFin hat aufgrund der merkwürdigen Kursturbulenzen der Wirecard-Aktie eine förmliche Untersuchung des Falles eingeleitet. “Wir prüfen, ob es Anhaltspunkte für Marktmanipulation in Aktien der Wirecard AG gibt”, sagte eine BaFin-Sprecherin. Zu Details könne sie sich jedoch nicht äußern.Der Kurs des Münchener Zahlungsabwicklers Wirecard war am vergangenen Dienstag um mehr als 30 Prozent eingebrochen. Am Abend zuvor hatte der Internetdienst Goldman, Morgenstern & Partners (Gomopa) berichtet, der in den USA wegen illegalen Online-Glücksspiels verhaftete Deutsche Michael Schütt habe in einem Geständnis Wirecard schwer belastet. Gomopa bezog sich auf einen Bericht der Lokalzeitung “Naples News”. Schütt habe ausgesagt, er sei bei illegalen Geldgeschäften direkt vom Wirecard-Vorstand beauftragt worden.Das Problem an dem Gomopa-Bericht: Er war falsch. Wie Nachfragen des Handelsblattes ergaben, hat die Reporterin, die für die “Naples News” über Schütt schreibt, Wirecard nie erwähnt. Gomopa reagierte auf Nachfragen zögerlich. Erst löschte der Dienst den Hinweis auf die Lokalzeitung, hielt aber den Vorwurf aufrecht, Schütt habe Wirecard belastet. Danach änderte man den Bericht erneut. Nun hieß es, ein Informant von Gomopa verfüge über die fraglichen Details aus Schütts Geständnis.Dem Handelsblatt liegt inzwischen das amtliche Protokoll von Schütts Geständnis am 23. März vor. Schütt bekennt sich darin schuldig, illegale Geldgeschäfte im Zusammenhang mit Online-Glücksspiel abgewickelt zu haben. Das Wort Wirecard kommt nicht vor. Gomopa hatte zu Wochenbeginn seinen Text erneut geändert und nun behauptet, Schütt belaste “eine Bank”. Auf erneute Nachfragen des Handelsblattes war der Bericht dann ganz verschwunden.Der Kurs von Wirecard hat sich inzwischen fast vollständig erholt. Ein Frankfurter Analyst sagte, für ihn sei klar, dass die Aktie seit Wochen manipuliert werde. Erst verteure sich die Leihe der Aktie, dann komme es zu außergewöhnlichem Handel, danach tauchten plötzlich desaströse Gerüchte auf. Dazu gehöre auch die Anzeige, die vor kurzem bei der Staatsanwaltschaft München einging und Wirecard der Geldwäsche bezichtigt. Es sei offensichtlich, dass Short Seller mit der Wirecard-Aktie Jojo spielen.Mark Vornkahl, einer der Gründer von Gomopa wies den Vorwurf der Kursmanipulation gestern zurück. Man wolle nur die Wahrheit aufdecken. Es ist allerdings nicht das erste Mal, dass Gomopa-Vertreter ins Zwielicht geraten. 2006 wurden Vornkahl und Mitgründer Klaus Maurischat wegen Betrugs an einem Anleger verurteilt. Maurischat gab gestern gegenüber dem Handelsblatt weitere Verurteilungen zu. Es habe sich dabei jedoch nicht um Anlagebetrug gehandelt.

Der Beweis: Erpressungsversuch des „NACHRICHTENDIENSTES“ GoMoPa“ an Meridian Capital (Nachfolgend bringen wir eine Original-Pressemeldung von „GoMoPa“, dem „NACHRICHTENDIENST“ mit dem Meridian Capital, London, erpresst werden sollte. Der Artikel strotzt nur von Fehlern. Damit ist deutlich, dass „GoMoPa“ tatsäch Meridian Capital erpresst hat und die Aktionen von Meridian Capital sich gegen „GoMoPa“ gerichtet haben.
Die gefälschte Pressemitteilung von Meridian Capital in Bezug auf unser Haus soll von dem „NACHRICHTENDIENST“ „GoMoPa“ ablenken.„GoMopa“ schreibt:08.09.2008
Weltweite Finanzierungen mit Widersprüchen

Die Meridian Capital Enterprises Ltd. gibt an, weltweite Finanzierungen anbieten zu können und präsentiert sich hierbei auf aufwendig kreierten Webseiten. GOMOPA hat die dort gemachten Angaben analysiert und Widersprüche entdeckt.

Der Firmensitz

Der Firmensitz befindet sich laut eigener Aussage in Dubai, Vereinigte Arabische Emirate. In einem GOMOPA vorliegenden Schreiben der Meridian Capital Enterprises Ltd. heißt es jedoch, der Firmensitz sei in London. Auf der Homepage des Unternehmens taucht die Geschäftsadresse in der Londoner Old Broad Street nur als „Kundenabteilung für deutschsprachige Kunden“ auf. Eine weitere Adresse in der englischen Hauptstadt, diesmal in der Windsor Avenue, sei die „Abteilung der Zusammenarbeit mit Investoren“.

Die Meridian Capital Enterprises ist tatsächlich als „Limited“ (Ltd.) mit Sitz in England und Wales eingetragen. Aber laut Firmenhomepage hat das Unternehmen seinen „rechtlichen Geschäftssitz“ in Dubai. Eine Abfrage beim Gewerbeamt Dubais (DED) zu dieser Firmierung bleibt ergebnislos.

Bemerkenswert ist auch der vermeintliche Sitz in Israel. Auf der Webseite von Meridian Capital Enterprises heißt es: „Die Firma Meridian Capital Enterprises Ltd. ist im Register des israelischen Justizministeriums unter der Nummer 514108471, gemäß dem Gesellschaftsrecht von 1999, angemeldet.“ Hierzu Martin Kraeter, Gomopa-Partner und Prinzipal der KLP Group Emirates in Dubai: „Es würde keinem einzigen Emirati – geschweige denn einem Scheich auch nur im Traum einfallen, direkte Geschäfte mit Personen oder Firmen aus Israel zu tätigen. Und schon gar nicht würde er zustimmen, dass sein Konterfei auch noch mit vollem Namen auf der Webseite eines Israelischen Unternehmens prangt.“

Auf der Internetseite sind diverse Fotos mit Scheichs an Konferenztischen zu sehen. Doch diese großen Tagungen und großen Kongresse der Meridian Capital Enterprises werden in den Pressearchiven der lokalen Presse Dubais mit keinem Wort erwähnt.
Martin Kraeter: „ Ein ‚britisch-arabisch-israelisches bankfremdes Finanzinstitut sein zu wollen, wie die Meridian Capital Enterprises Ltd. es darstellt, ist mehr als zweifelhaft. So etwas gibt es schlicht und ergreifend nicht! Der Nahostkonflikt schwelt schon seit mehr als 50 Jahren. Hier in den Vereinigten Arabischen Emiraten (VAE) werden Israelis erst gar nicht ins Land gelassen. Israelische Produkte sind gebannt. Es gibt nicht einmal direkte Telefonverbindungen. Die VAE haben fast 70% der Wiederaufbaukosten des Libanon geschultert, nachdem Israel dort einmarschiert ist.“

Zwei angebliche Großinvestitionen der Meridian Capital Enterprises in Dubai sind Investmentruinen bzw. erst gar nicht realisierte Projekte. Das Unternehmen wirbt mit ihrer finanziellen Beteiligung an dem Dubai Hydropolis Hotel und dem Dubai Snowdome.

Der Aktivitätsstatus der Meridian Capital Enterprises Ltd. ist laut englischen Handelsregister (UK Companies House) „dormant“ gemeldet. Auf der Grundlage des englischen Gesellschaftsrechts können sich eingetragene Unternehmen selbst „dormant“ (schlafend) melden, wenn sie keine oder nur unwesentliche buchhalterisch zu erfassende Transaktionen vorgenommen haben. Dies ist angesichts der angeblichen globalen Investitionstätigkeit der Meridian Capital Ltd. sehr erstaunlich.

Der Webauftritt

Die Internetseite der MCE ist sehr aufwendig gestaltet, die Investitionen angeblich in Millionen- und Milliardenhöhe. Bei näherer Betrachtung der Präsentationselemente fällt jedoch auf, dass es sich bei zahlreichen veröffentlichen Fotos, die Veranstaltungen der Meridian Capital Enterprises dokumentieren sollen, meist um Fotos von Online-Zeitungen oder frei zugänglichen Medienfotos einzelner Institutionen handelt wie z.B. der Börse Dubai.

Auf der Internetpräsenz befinden sich Videofilmchen, die eine frappierende Ähnlichkeit mit dem Werbematerial von NAKHEEL aufweisen, dem größten Bauträger der Vereinigten Arabischen Emirate. Doch den schillernden Videos über die berühmten drei Dubai Palmen „Jumeirah, Jebel Ali und Deira“ oder das Archipel „The World“ wurden offensichtlich selbstproduzierte Trailersequenzen der Meridian Capital Enterprises vorangestellt. Doch könnte es sich bei den Werbevideos um Fremdmaterial handeln.

Auch die auf der Webseite wahllos platzierten Fotos von bekannten Sehenswürdigkeiten Dubais fungieren als Augenfang für den interessierten Surfer mit eigenem Finanzierungswunsch. Bei einem Volumen von 10 Millionen Euro oder höher präsentiert sich die Meridian Capital Enterprises Ltd. als der passende Investitionspartner. Das Unternehmen verfügt weltweit über zahlreiche Standorte: Berlin, London, Barcelona, Warschau, Moskau, Dubai, Riad, Tel Aviv, Hong Kong und New York. Aber nahezu alle Standorte sind lediglich Virtual Offices eines global arbeitenden Büroservice-Anbieters. „Virtual Office“ heißt im Deutschen schlicht „Briefkastenfirma“. Unter solchen Büroadressen sollen laut Meridian Capital Enterprises ganze Kommissionen ansässig sein, alles zum Wohle des Kunden.“


Dies ist das altbekannte Muster des „NACHRCHTENDIENSTES“ „GoMoPa“ und seiner Berliner und Hamburger Komplizen Falschmeldungen zu verbreiten, um Firmen und Personen erpressen oder ausschalten zu können.



CYBERSTASI unmasked – Emma Watson Most Popular Name for Cyber Criminals

Emma Watson is the most dangerous name to search on the Internet, according to a study by computer safety company McAfee. Cyber criminals use Watson’s name to attract people to details about the “Harry Potter” and “Perks of Being a Wallflower” actress and then trick them into downloading malware or giving personal information. Patrick Jones has what other celebrities, like Selena Gomez and Jessica Biel, could put you at risk.

Unveiled – WikiLeaks Setting Another Trap for Journalists, NGOs

A sends:

I tasted that poison today. It was strange, the feeling of having the privilege to information that was only made available to “a select few” was overwhelming, I don’t have the vocabulary to describe what the poison tastes like, but I can understand how some people could become addicted to it, even if it meant their death.

You are right, WL is setting “Terms and Conditions” to the access to stolen property, and attempting to force Journalists into an “Agreement” to those “Conditions, however unenforceable.

Your thoughts and counsel were welcomed, they snapped me out of that trance that I found myself in.

The only thing to do is, publish everything that I’ve learned over the last many hours about this whole affair.

Unveiled – Barclays Bank PLC Admits Misconduct Related to Submissions for the London InterBank Offered Rate and the Euro InterBank Offered Rate and Agrees to Pay $160 Million Penalty

WASHINGTON—Barclays Bank PLC, a financial institution headquartered in London, has entered into an agreement with the Department of Justice to pay a $160 million penalty to resolve violations arising from Barclays’ submissions for the London InterBank Offered Rate (LIBOR) and the Euro Interbank Offered Rate (EURIBOR), which are benchmark interest rates used in financial markets around the world, announced Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Assistant Director in Charge James W. McJunkin of the FBI’s Washington Field Office.

As part of the agreement with the Department of Justice, Barclays has admitted and accepted responsibility for its misconduct set forth in a statement of facts that is incorporated into the agreement. According to the agreement, Barclays provided LIBOR and EURIBOR submissions that, at various times, were false because they improperly took into account the trading positions of its derivative traders, or reputational concerns about negative media attention relating to its LIBOR submissions. The Justice Department’s criminal investigation into the manipulation of LIBOR and EURIBOR by other financial institutions and individuals is ongoing. The agreement requires Barclays to continue cooperating with the department in its ongoing investigation.

“LIBOR and EURIBOR are critically important benchmark interest rates,” said Assistant Attorney General Breuer. “Because mortgages, student loans, financial derivatives, and other financial products rely on LIBOR and EURIBOR as reference rates, the manipulation of submissions used to calculate those rates can have significant negative effects on consumers and financial markets worldwide. For years, traders at Barclays encouraged the manipulation of LIBOR and EURIBOR submissions in order to benefit their financial positions; and, in the midst of the financial crisis, Barclays management directed that U.S. Dollar LIBOR submissions be artificially lowered. For this illegal conduct, Barclays is paying a significant price. To the bank’s credit, Barclays also took a significant step toward accepting responsibility for its conduct by being the first institution to provide extensive and meaningful cooperation to the government. Its efforts have substantially assisted the Criminal Division in our ongoing investigation of individuals and other financial institutions in this matter.”

“Barclays Bank’s illegal activity involved manipulating its submissions for benchmark interest rates in order to benefit its trading positions and the media’s perception of the bank’s financial health,” said Assistant Director in Charge McJunkin. “Today’s announcement is the result of the hard work of the FBI special agents, financial analysts, and forensic accountants as well as the prosecutors who dedicated significant time and resources to investigating this case.”

Barclays was one of the financial institutions that contributed rates used in the calculation of LIBOR and EURIBOR. The contributed rates are generally meant to reflect each bank’s assessment of the rates at which it could borrow unsecured interbank funds. For LIBOR, the highest and lowest 25 percent of contributed rates are excluded from the calculation and the remaining rates are averaged to calculate the fixed rates. For EURIBOR, the highest and lowest 15 percent are excluded, and the remaining 70 percent are averaged to calculate the fixed rates.

Futures, options, swaps, and other derivative financial instruments traded in the over-the-counter market and on exchanges worldwide are settled based on LIBOR. Further, mortgages, credit cards, student loans, and other consumer lending products often use LIBOR as a reference rate. According to the agreement, an individual bank’s LIBOR or EURIBOR submission cannot appropriately be influenced by the financial positions of its derivatives traders or the bank’s concerns about public perception of its financial health due to its LIBOR submissions.

According to the agreement, between 2005 and 2007, and then occasionally thereafter through 2009, certain Barclays traders requested that the Barclays LIBOR and EURIBOR submitters contribute rates that would benefit the financial positions held by those traders. The requests were made by traders in New York and London, via electronic messages, telephone conversations, and in-person conversations. The employees responsible for the LIBOR and EURIBOR submissions accommodated those requests on numerous occasions in submitting the bank’s contributions. On some occasions, Barclays’s submissions affected the fixed rates.

In addition, between August 2005 and May 2008, certain Barclays traders communicated with traders at other financial institutions, including other banks on the LIBOR and EURIBOR panels, to request LIBOR and EURIBOR submissions that would be favorable to their or their counterparts’ trading positions, according to the agreement.

When the requests of traders for favorable LIBOR and EURIBOR submissions were taken into account by the rate submitters, Barclays’ rate submissions were false and misleading.

Further, according to the agreement, between approximately August 2007 and January 2009, in response to initial and ongoing press speculation that Barclays’ high U.S. Dollar LIBOR submissions at the time might reflect liquidity problems at Barclays, members of Barclays management directed that Barclays’ dollar LIBOR submissions be lowered. This management instruction often resulted in Barclays’ submission of false rates that did not reflect its perceived cost of obtaining interbank funds. While the purpose of this particular conduct was to influence Barclays’ rate submissions, as opposed to the resulting fixes, there were some occasions when Barclays’ submissions affected the fixed rates.

The agreement and monetary penalty recognize Barclays’ extraordinary cooperation. Barclays made timely, voluntary, and complete disclosure of its misconduct. After government authorities began investigating allegations that banks had engaged in manipulation of benchmark interest rates, Barclays was the first bank to cooperate in a meaningful way in disclosing its conduct relating to LIBOR and EURIBOR. Barclays’ disclosure included relevant facts that at the time were not known to the government. Barclays’s cooperation has been extensive, in terms of the quality and type of information and assistance provided, and has been of substantial value in furthering the department’s ongoing criminal investigation. Barclays has made a commitment to future cooperation with the department and other government authorities in the United States and the United Kingdom.

Assistant Attorney General Breuer further stated, “As today’s agreement reflects, we are committed to holding companies accountable for their misconduct while, at the same time, giving meaningful credit to companies that provide full and valuable cooperation in our investigations.”

In addition, Barclays has implemented a series of compliance measures and will implement additional internal controls regarding its submission of LIBOR and EURIBOR contributions, as required by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Barclays will also continue to be supervised and monitored by the FSA.

The agreement and monetary penalty further recognize certain mitigating factors to Barclays’ misconduct. At times, Barclays employees raised concerns with the British Bankers’ Association, the United Kingdom Financial Services Authority (FSA), the Bank of England, and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in late 2007 and in 2008 that the Dollar LIBOR rates submitted by contributing banks, including Barclays, were too low and did not accurately reflect the market. Further, during this time, notwithstanding Barclays’s improperly low dollar LIBOR submissions, those submissions were often higher than the contributions used in the calculation of the fixed rates.

As a result of Barclays’s admission of its misconduct, its extraordinary cooperation, its remediation efforts and certain mitigating and other factors, the department agreed not to prosecute Barclays for providing false LIBOR and EURIBOR contributions, provided that Barclays satisfies its ongoing obligations under the agreement for a period of two years. The non-prosecution agreement applies only to Barclays and not to any employees or officers of Barclays or any other individuals.

In a related matter, the CFTC brought attempted manipulation and false reporting charges against Barclays, which the bank agreed to settle. The CFTC imposed a $200 million penalty and required Barclays to implement detailed measures designed to ensure the integrity and reliability of its benchmark interest rate submissions.

The FSA issued a final notice regarding its enforcement action against Barclays and has imposed a penalty of £59.5 million against it.

The case is being handled by Deputy Chief Daniel Braun, Assistant Chiefs Rebecca Rohr and Robertson Park, Trial Attorney Alexander Berlin, and Special Trial Attorney Luke Marsh of the Criminal Division’s Fraud Section. The investigation is being conducted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office, jointly with the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice.

The Department acknowledges and expresses its appreciation for the significant assistance provided by the CFTC’s Division of Enforcement, which referred the conduct to the department, as well as the FSA’s Enforcement and Financial Crime Division.

This agreement is part of efforts underway by President Barack Obama’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force. President Obama established the interagency Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force to wage an aggressive, coordinated, and proactive effort to investigate and prosecute financial crimes. The task force includes representatives from a broad range of federal agencies, regulatory authorities, inspectors general and state and local law enforcement who, working together, bring to bear a powerful array of criminal and civil enforcement resources. The task force is working to improve efforts across the federal executive branch and, with state and local partners, to investigate and prosecute significant financial crimes, ensure just and effective punishment for those who perpetrate financial crimes, combat discrimination in the lending and financial markets, and recover proceeds for victims of financial crimes.

TOP-SECRET from the FBI – Texas Resident Convicted on Charge of Attempted Use of Weapon of Mass Destruction

AMARILLO, TX—Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari, 22, a citizen of Saudi Arabia and resident of Lubbock, Texas, was convicted by a federal jury today on an indictment charging one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction in connection with his purchase of chemicals and equipment necessary to make an improvised explosive device (IED) and his research of potential U.S. targets, including persons and infrastructure.

The verdict, which was reached in the Northern District of Texas, was announced by Sarah R. Saldaña, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Texas; Lisa Monaco, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; and Diego G. Rodriguez, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI Dallas Field Division.

Sentencing has been scheduled for October 9, 2012, in Amarillo. Aldawsari, who was lawfully admitted into the United States in 2008 on a student visa and was enrolled at South Plains College near Lubbock, faces a maximum sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine. He was arrested on February 23, 2011 on a criminal complaint and later charged in a March 9, 2011 federal indictment with attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction.

According to court documents and evidence presented during trial, at the time of his arrest last year, Aldawsari had been researching online how to construct an IED using several chemicals as ingredients. He had also acquired or taken a substantial step toward acquiring most of the ingredients and equipment necessary to construct an IED, and he had conducted online research of several potential U.S. targets, the affidavit alleges. In addition, he had allegedly described his desire for violent jihad and martyrdom in blog postings and a personal journal.

“While many people are responsible for thwarting Aldawsari’s threat and bringing him to justice, we owe a debt of gratitude to all the members of the North Texas Joint Terrorism Task Force, and especially to the hundreds of hardworking and dedicated FBI agents, analysts, linguists, and others,” said U.S. Attorney Saldaña. “Their efforts, coupled with the hard work and excellent cooperation from the Lubbock Police Department and the Texas Tech Police Department, are the reason we were able to stop this defendant from carrying out a catastrophic act of terrorism.”

“As this trial demonstrated, Aldawsari purchased ingredients to construct an explosive device and was actively researching potential targets in the United States. Thanks to the efforts of many agents, analysts, and prosecutors, this plot was thwarted before it could advance further,” said Assistant Attorney General Monaco. “This case serves as another reminder of the need for continued vigilance both at home and abroad.”

“Today’s guilty verdict shows how individuals in the United States with the intent to do harm can acquire the knowledge and materials necessary to carry out an attack,” said SAC Rodriguez. “Our success in locating and preventing Mr. Aldawsari from carrying out an attack is a result of cooperation within the law enforcement and intelligence communities, particularly, the North Texas Joint Terrorism Task Force, the Texas Tech Police Department, the Lubbock Police Department, and the Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office, but also a demonstration of information sharing across FBI divisions, as well as assistance from the community. I want to thank the dedicated agents, officers, and analysts; the computer forensics team; and linguists that worked diligently on this investigation, as well as prosecutors serving in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Northern District.”

The government presented evidence that on February 1, 2011, a chemical supplier reported to the FBI a suspicious attempted purchase of concentrated phenol by a man identifying himself as Khalid Aldawsari. Phenol is a toxic chemical with legitimate uses, but it can also be used to make the explosive trinitrophenol, also known as T.N.P., or picric acid. Ingredients typically used with phenol to make picric acid, or T.N.P., are concentrated sulfuric and nitric acids.

Aldawsari attempted to have the phenol order shipped to a freight company so it could be held for him there, but the freight company told Aldawsari that the order had been returned to the supplier and called the police. Later, Aldawsari falsely told the supplier he was associated with a university and wanted the phenol for “off-campus, personal research.” Frustrated by questions being asked over his phenol order, Aldawsari cancelled his order, placed an order with another company, and later e-mailed himself instructions for producing phenol. In December 2010, he had successfully purchased concentrated nitric and sulfuric acids.

Aldawsari used various e-mail accounts in researching explosives and targets and often sent e-mails to himself as part of this process. He e-mailed himself a recipe for picric acid, which was described in the e-mail as a “military explosive” and also e-mailed himself instructions on how to convert a cell phone into a remote detonator and how to prepare a booby-trapped vehicle using household items. Aldawsari also purchased many other items, including a Hazmat suit, a soldering iron kit, glass beakers and flasks, a stun gun, clocks, and a battery tester.

Excerpts from a journal found at Aldawsari’s residence indicated that he had been planning to commit a terrorist attack in the United States for years. One entry describes how Aldawsari sought and obtained a particular scholarship because it allowed him to come directly to the United States and helped him financially, which he said “will help tremendously in providing me with the support I need for Jihad.” The entry continues, “And now, after mastering the English language, learning how to build explosives and continuous planning to target the infidel Americans, it is time for Jihad.”

In another entry, Aldawsari wrote that he was near to reaching his goal and near to getting weapons to use against infidels and their helpers. He also listed a “synopsis of important steps” that included obtaining a forged U.S. birth certificate; renting a car; using different driver’s licenses for each car rented; putting bombs in cars and taking them to different places during rush hour; and leaving the city for a safe place.

Aldawsari conducted research on various targets and e-mailed himself information on these locations and people. One of the documents he sent himself, with the subject line listed as “Targets,” contained the names and home addresses of three American citizens who had previously served in the U.S. military and had been stationed for a time at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. In others, Aldawsari sent himself the names of 12 reservoir dams in Colorado and California and listed two categories of targets: hydroelectric dams and nuclear power plants. He also sent himself an e-mail titled “Tyrant’s House,” in which he listed the Dallas address for former President George W. Bush. Aldawsari also conducted research that indicated he considered using infant dolls to conceal explosives and the possible targeting of a nightclub with an explosive concealed in a backpack.
