Crypto-currency, Financial Clearing, & Rogue Hacking Groups

Color me crazy, but I’ve never been on the cashless society bandwagon for a variety of reasons, not the least being that anything Mr. Globaloney is for, is probably ab initio et in principio a bad idea. Crypto-currencies, in this light, always struck me as being “too good to be true” and their principal selling point – security and privacy – a little too convenient. They struck me then, and strike me now, as being taylor-made to press Mr. Globaloney’s desire to move everyone to cashlessness.

Which brings me to my second reason for skepticism: the integrity of cyber systems in general. Why anyone would trust such a system is beyond me, especially when, if one wants to turn the clock back a bit to the 1980s, there were already stories circulating about computers being sold with “clipper chips” that allowed your local not-so-friendly three-letter-agencies access to every electronic communication. Then, of course, came the Inslaw-PROMIS scandals of the late 1980s, and we were off and running.

Now, in that context, consider the following article by Rich Haridy – a very intriguing article from several points of view – that was shared by Mr. J.K.:

Shadow Brokers hacking group reveals bizarre data dump subscription plan

Several things caught my eye in this article, and we’d be here for days if I were to blog about all of them, but I want to draw attention to the first thing that really leaped off the page:

The Shadow Brokers first appeared in August 2016, announcing an auction to sell off a set of security exploits the group purportedly stole from the NSA. After the auction failed to reach the absurd asking price of one million bitcoins, the group publicly released four sets of exploits over the following months. One of those exploits contained the now infamous EternalBlue vulnerability that underpinned the recent WannaCry attack.

Since the WannaCry outbreak, the Shadow Brokers have been threatening to release more NSA hacking tools, and in early May the group published a blog post in broken English ominously announcing a bizarre subscription model offering members a monthly haul of data.

The group described it as a, “new monthly subscription model. Is being like wine of month club. Each month peoples can be paying membership fee, then getting members only data dump each month. What members doing with data after is up to members.”

In a follow-up post published more recently, the group explained the process in greater detail. Subscribers can pay 100 Zcash coins (equivalent to over US$20,000) to access the data dump, which will be revealed in the first two weeks of July.

Zcash is a relatively new cryptocurrency launched in October 2016. Purportedly more secure than Bitcoin, the Shadow Brokers’ use of Zcash seems to be less about using a safer cryptocurrency and more about revealing to the public the US government’s connection to its development.

The Shadow Brokers’ blog post explicitly points out that the development of Zcash is allegedly linked to the Department of Defense, DARPA and Israel. It also claims the new cryptocurrency, which was recently accepted as a legitimate currency on iOS and Android platforms, could be a trojan horse with a cryptographic flaw monitored by the NSA or used by the government to send money to deep cover assets outside of banking systems. (Italicized emphasis added)

Now, before we get to my high octane speculation de jour, note the following things:

(1) The hacking group “Anonymous” seems to have dropped off the radar, to be replaced now with “The Shadow Brokers” which raises the interesting questions: (a) has the former group simply rebranded itself and reemerged under a new name? Or did the former simply cease operations? Or are they two discrete groups? One may never know, but as we’ll see in a moment, the question of who and what this new group – the Shadow Brokers – is, is an important component of any speculation regarding what it going on.

(2) The new group is exposing the alleged links of the new cyber-currency to the US Department of Defense, DARPA, and Israel; and,

(3) that said cyber-currency has a “back door” built in, which, of course, raises the entire philosophical objection I have to the whole idea: what is to prevent any cyber-currency, state-sponsored or otherwise, from having a similar “flaw”? Answer: nothing.

Given that flaw, however, note that The Shadow Brokers have tapped into it, which raises the question of just who they are. Here Mr. Haridy explores the options at opposite ends of the spectrum:

This odd series of actions, which seem to be constantly iterating information with a strong anti-government bent, has caused many to question who The Shadows Brokers actually are, and whether their motives are simply mercenary.

Much speculation has floated around the possibility that the group could be a foreign nation state working to embarrass or disrupt the US government’s cyber-spying efforts. A former NSA employee tells Ars Technica that they, “are foreign intelligence, and the continued requests for money are all geared towards plausible deniability that they are intel.”

Edward Snowden tweeted suspicions that the group were Russian hackers back in August 2016, when the original auction was revealed. Over a series of 15 tweets he laid out a compelling case for the original NSA hacks coming from a foreign intelligence, in particular, Russia.

Security specialist Bruce Schneier also published a more recent, and exhaustive, investigation into the source of the mysterious hacking group. He concludes, quite reasonably, that while they are seemingly not just random hackers or cybercriminals, it also looks unlikely they are a cyber-intelligence sector of a nation state due to their erratic and anarchic activities.

All of this brings me to my high octane speculation of the day. Assuming the first hypothesis, that the group is a state-sponsored group, then the effect of their action seems to be to expose the extent of NSA electronic eavesdropping, and the lack of integrity of cyber systems. If, on the other hand, it is a private group, the effect would be the same. But it is the effect itself that seems to be being ignored by analysts hypothesizing on who they are and what they’re up to, for regardless of whether or not they are state-sponsored (and that means, even a group or faction within the American military-intelligence complex), or not, the group is (1) Calling into question the integrity of cyber systems in general and (2) crypto-cyber currencies in particular. And hence it strikes me as being entirely possible that the real ultimate and deepest motivation of these types of attacks is to call into question the whole agenda of cashless society, all firmly under the control of Mr. Globaloney. In support of this high octane speculation, recall that even Darth Soros was recently hacked, and some of his financial dealings exposed to scrutiny.

If my hypothesis is true, expect more such hacks, and more such exposure of the global super-elite.

See you on the flip side…

Those Bankster Hacks: A Strange Story About Hacking The FED

THOSE BANKSTER HACKS: A STRANGE STORY ABOUT HACKING THE FED

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
June 6, 2016

This very important story was shared by Ms. KM, and it’s so significant I simply have to blog about it, especially given the previous weeks’ stories about various banks being hacked. Only this one is far more serious:

“Anonymous” Hacks Federal Reserve; Grabs Stock Ownership files!

Now the title here says it all: the hacking group Anonymous has allegedly hacked not only the Federal Reserve, but stolen files indicating which corporations the US Fed has purchased:

The hacker group known as “Anonymous” has announced it successfully penetrated multiple systems within the federal reserve bank, and successfully downloaded two crucial files: One showing an account number and the stocks owned by that account number, the other showing an account number and the name of the owner of that account. Without having BOTH files, no one could ever tell who owned what.  Anonymous claims they stole BOTH files!

Anonymous says the federal reserve bank owns more than fifty percent of the stock in quite a few major US Corporations!  If the fed had not purchased these vast quantities of stocks (Think Dow Jones Industrials (DJIA) and the S&P 500) both markets would have crashed long ago!

Even worse, the group claims that the US federal reserve also purchased stocks in foreign companies and foreign banks in such vast quantities as to prop-up European and Asian markets!!!!

Now there’s an implication here that is also equally disturbing. Since the Federal Reserve is a privately owned stock corporation, the actual owners of its stock are also not well known, though it has been more or less an accepted theory in the alternative research community that the major banking families have been the major owners ot the Fed’s own stock since its founding, but there’s never been a real historical history of who owned how much, nor how these blocks of stock might have changed over time. The usual suspects are, of course, the Morgan interests, Rockefellers, Rothschilds, Warburgs, Schiffs, and so on. But what was true in 1913 may not be true now.

In The New [Or Is It]: Did Anonymous Just Hit The World Bank, Fed,..

 IN THE NEWS(OR IS IT?): DID ANONYMOUS JUST HIT THE WORLD BANK, FED, ...
GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
May 28, 2016

There’s more news about the hacking group Anonymous and its hacking exploits, or is there? Well, if you’re watching the lamestream news, not really, at least, not according to these two articles that many of you shared:

Anonymous Hits New York Stock Exchange, World Bank, The Fed, and Vatican — Total Media Blackout

Anonymous Hits New York Stock Exchange, World Bank, The Fed, & Vatican — Total Media Blackout

We blogged this story previously but now there appears to be a new wrinkle to ponder if  you read these two articles closely, a wrinkle having to do with our high octane  speculation of the day. But first, a caveat: we are assuming for the sake of argument that these two articles – which are more or less the same – are in fact true. But there is equally the possibility that they may not be, or at least, may contain a degree of “disinformation.” This would dovetail quite nicely with the view of some that Anonymous may not be the “independent, altruistic” group that some say it is, but rather, a global organization with big backers behind it. Some have been of the opinion that it represents a cut-out for Chinese and/or Russian cyber warfare activity against the West, and given the West’s own economic warfare on Russia, a response in some form is to be expected. “Two can play the covert operations game”.  Again, completeness also demands that one entertain the possibility that the group may even be the dialectical catspaw for the banksters themselves, a way of demonstrating the vulnerability of current digital financial systems to create a climate of opinion to emplace something draconian.

Central Banks Hacked, But What Aren’t They Saying?

CENTRAL  BANKS HACKED, BUT WHAT AREN’T THEY SAYING?

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
May 21, 2016

Many readers sent various versions of the first article here, which formes the backdrop for the second article, and today’s high octane speculations. Please note: last Thursday’s News and Views was cancelled because I was unable to obtain assistance with the new upgrades we’re making, so today’s blog is essentially what I recorded, but was unable to upload, to You Tube.

So what’s today’s  blog (and last Thursday’s News and Views) about?  Well, someone is hacking central banks, in particular, the New York Federal Reserve:

http://www.cutimes.com/2016/05/16/hackers-steal-81-million-from-new-york-fed?ref=rss&slreturn=1463676653&page=2

Now note the last paragraph of this article:

“The attackers clearly exhibit a deep and sophisticated knowledge of specific operational controls within the targeted banks, knowledge that may have been gained from malicious insiders or cyberattacks, or a combination of both,” Morey Haber, vice president of technology at the Phoenix-based BeyondTrust, said. “The hackers allegedly learned from internal resources what systems need to be attacked, whom to contact, and what vulnerabilities should be leveraged. The art of the hack then became a simple exploit to exercise due to the insider threat.”

So what do we have? In this article we have (1) “hackers” have hacked the NY Federal Reserve, with no mention of who the suspects might be, and (2) the statement is made that “knowledge… may have been gained from malicious insiders or cyber attacks, or a combination of both.”
