@LAMurderCop d0x – He is d0xxing Anonymous

Message to Sal LaBarbera @LAMurderCop////////////////////////////////
We are the the d0xxing master. Do you know you share the same name as a mob boss? It fits, you aren't any better. You are a dirty dirty cop. You have shown that you do not care about the citizens on either side of the law. What about that man you snapped photos of, you know,  ? What about his family? You didn't fucking care because you are a sociopath. Do you think by posting violent images, you can stop violence? Seeing gore de-sensitizes, and makes it normal to see or commit acts of violence.

But this isn’t what this is about. This is about your attempts to d0xx hackers. That really wasn’t a good idea. Now you have the attention of Anonymous. You’re fucked sir. Truly fucked. Does the L.A.P.D know that you are committing illegal acts online? Just because you are a “Peace Officer” does not mean you can pick and choose what laws to follow. For now I shall post this d0x. Step down, because we will make your life hell. You are a homicide detective, not a Cyber “Crimes” detective.
Sal LaBarbera
For the irresponsible posting of a crime scene photo, laughing at protesters while they were being arrested at #OccupyLA Raid, and being part of the LAPD/FBI. While you can operate in “grey” areas, so can we. Enjoy

Greetings, dear people. We would like to ask a mere minute of your most valuable time to inform you about the upcoming internetcensorship in Holland,issued by a minister that goes under the name of Fred Teeven.We,the 99% in Holland, used to have the freedom to download software, music,and other types of entertainment that benefit mankind in a certain matter. Howver, due to the enormous amount of pressure put on the Dutch government forcing them to stand up against the average man downloading, (seen as criminals!), Holland is going to have download restrictions in the near future. Ofcourse, we take a stance against that. We think the Dutch government is using censorship to control the people, and took one step too far in this.
downloaders now get hunted, complete with secret arrests, secret prisons, unlawful interrogations, and indefinite detainment without ever being charged with a crime. Simply put, we cannot let this happen.
I most certainly hope you realize we are running out of time. Once this becomes law, you have no rights whatsoever regarding the internet.
Fred Teeven, your attempts to take away internet freedom has not been taken lightly. We will fight against it, and will continue to do so till the law passage gets reversed.
How can you help?
-Make people aware of the download restrictions that seem unavoidable
-Make Fred Teeven aware he is making the wrong decision
-Aiming your arrows at Rijksoverheid.nl, or any site affliated/linked to Fred Teeven.
We are anonymous.
We are Legion.
United as ONE.
Divided by zero.
We do not forgive Censorship.
We do not forget Oppression.
Fred Teeven, Expect us!

Hello Citizens of the world,
This Is A Message From Anonymous at OperationBritain we need your help with the following.
We have detected what looks like Carrier I.Q. in the UK. We need people to run tests and find out what it does.
You will see in the following video that a program is running, but like carrier I.Q. does not appear in the running menu. It only appears in all applications, It is called field test. It has full permissions like carrier I Q, and cannot be stopped.
This is on an HTC, and many other devices running mobile software. The reasons why this needs investigating include :
The phone is not on any specific network, therefore any field testing of the phone would be done by the mobile operator.
There is no about, privacy policy or any other infomation written about the application.
A google search provides no real clue as to why its on there.
Force Stop fails to terminate the hidden application.
Any application with full access to the device, where force stop does not work.
We all need to research this on all devices and run tests. This is on a 2010 HTC Desire., freshly formatted with all location disabled. Technically no program on the phone should be able to access what this does. It is not used by android to run the phone. There is no stamp to say who made the application, as other HTC apps have there logo at least.
We are anonymous.
We are legion.
We do not forgive.
We do not forget.

#OpGreece Press Release

#OpGreece Press Release
Greetings world, this is the first press release by #OpGreece. We want to raise awareness of the critical situation in Greece, and about our existence. We want to raise the awareness not only of Greeks within Greece, but Greek expatriates, you who are of Greek descent and the entire world.
We all saw the UC spray cop right? And the Tony Bologna spraying of young women in New York Yes? Well if that shocked you, here it is a daily routine. Greek citizens who peacefully protest receive this treatment almost EVERY week yet no one is responding to the acts of violence happening in this country.
Last month Greek police sprayed disabled people in wheel chairs, two months ago they attacked civilians who were only protesting peacefully – just walking and not even shouting – The police were throwing tear gas and stones and hitting them with sticks and iron rods. Three months ago the same thing and even hit reporters and whoever held a camera.
Now, as we write these words, the internet is being threatened by Makis Voridis, a person who in the 70′s and 80′s belonged into a group similar to KKK and is currently a member of the fascist party in Greece. Voridis is now in charge of the internet. A week after his “election” (he was elected by politicians and not by the people), blogs for freedom of speech were shut down, accounts on Facebook – mainly activists, anons, anarchists, communists and trolls – were deleted. Now Voridis and his cronies are planning to censor all the ISP’s so they will know when an “act of terrorism” is being generated by the public. Any political discourse that is not their flavor of fascism is considered “TERRORISM”
So yeah, this is Greece right now.
We need your help!
Here are some links that will help you understand Greece’s curretn situation:
- Athens 29-06-2011 Greek police attack against greek citizens in Syntagma square.
- A man tells the police “get off this square and please don’t hit me” the cop not only hits the guy but breaks his skull on cam.
- The new minister in charge for the internet, the 1st words he says “I agree that fights are being done by the people but not using rods sticks and helmets” the next picture is him holding an axe during his time in the KKK-like group he was. this man is currently in charge for the internet in Greece and is a member of the Fascist party. He wasn’t elected by us but by the government it self.
- More info about Makis Voridis
- Videos by #OpGreece, #OpSupportGreece and people attending the riots and protests
- Pictures of Police brutality during the protests and riots
So what is really going on in Greece right now? Why all this violence?
It all started when the ex Prime-Minister of Greece George Papandreou started to cut off the people’s payments and adding more austerity measures. The media helped spread a propaganda as if the people of Greece really had to do something with the money the government used for their own benefits.
NO. The Greek citizens have been poor for almost 2 years now and they’re getting poorer day by day.
The government spend this money in luxury products such as cars, houses and land.
For more info about this google these words individually: Vatopedi, Siemens scandal in Greece, Greek wiretapping case 2004.
So what is happening right now in Greece?
- People pay more taxes even though they cannot afford it
- Pensions have been cut off, so the elderly cannot even afford their medicine, rent and bills
- People are getting evicted due to loans
- Electricity company forces people to pay a lot more than they’re supposed to, either wise they shut down their power at home
- Banks are in charge
- Media spread propaganda and not covering the true stories such as, protests, riots, deaths, beating, police brutality, political scandals etc
- Getting a job is rare and even if you find one, the payment is not enough
- Stores are shutting down
- Homes are being abandoned
- People are living Greece to find a better life abroad
- Kids are fainting from starvation: http://www.newsit.gr/default.php?pname=Article&art_id=100921&catid=3
- Junkies and homeless people use used up needles to get infected with AIDS so they can get the 700 Euros the state is forced to pay on their expenses: http://parganews.com/2011/11/22/n%CE%B1%CF%81%CE%BA%CE%BF%CE%BC%CE%B1%CE%BD%CE%B5%CE%AF%CF%82-%CE%BA%CE%BF%CE%BB%CE%BB%CE%AC%CE%BD%CE%B5-aids-%CE%B3%CE%B9%CE%B1-%CE%BD%CE%B1-%CE%B5%CE%B9%CF%83%CF%80%CF%81%CE%AC%CF%84%CF%84%CE%BF/
- Protesters die, bleed, suffer
- 70% of the Greek families won’t turn on their heat during the winter cause they can’t afford it
- 1.500.000 Greeks are unemployed
- Families being destroyed
- The average Greek is being treated like dirt by the politicians and people outside Greece who bought on the media spread propaganda
- Censorship took over, blogs are closing, Facebook activists are being targeted, freedom of speech is being threatened (minister Adonis Georgiadis threatened by TV that the political asylum of one of our indymedia sites should feel threatened now that he’s also in charge http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xkqcyi_yyyyyy-yyyyyyyyyy-yyy-indymedia_news )
- Reporters are getting killed ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Assassination_of_Sokratis_Giolias )
and many many more.
This is life in Greece nowadays. They try to silence those who are fighting back for their human rights. We need your help to be heard and raise awareness to the world.
for the Greek links, simply use Google translate.

USDayofRage : Public Intelligence hosts PDF of DHS bulletin cites US Day of Rage

excerpt. begin from document:
E X E C U T I V E S U M M A R Y(U) The loosely organized hacking collective known as “Anonymous” has announced through several
mediums that they plan on conducting cyber attacks, peaceful protests, and other unspecified
activity targeting a variety of organizations. The purpose of this product is to judge the
likelihood of occurrence for these events, as well as the potential impact. (U//FOUO) Occupy Wall Street (OWS): DHS/NCCIC assesses that it is likely peaceful protests will
occur on Wall Street on 17 September 2011. These protests may be accompanied by malicious cyber
activity conducted by Anonymous.
(U//FOUO) Operation FaceBook (OPFB): DHS/NCCIC assesses that it is unlikely that a coordinated or
sophisticated cyber attack will be conducted by Anonymous (at large) targeting FaceBook.com (FB) on
5 November 2011. However, there remains the possibility that low-level or lone-wolf attempts may
(U//FOUO) Project Mayhem (PM): DHS/NCCIC assesses that a combination of inconsequential physical
mischief and potentially disruptive malicious cyber activity will be conducted leading up to the
culmination date of 21 December 2012. At this point, specific tactics, techniques and procedures
(TTP) are unknown.
(U//FOUO) Operation Halliburton: Little is known about this potential upcoming operation. DHS/NCCIC
assesses that targeting US corporations is consistent with past Anonymous targets.
(U) Anonymous has devoted resources to creating new cyber attack and exploitation tools:
(U) Anonymous claimed publicly it will be deploying a new DDoS tool called #RefRef in September.
There have been several publicly disclosed tools claiming to be versions of #RefRef however there
has been nothing to validate these claims.
(U//FOUO) The recent release of a distributed denial of service (DDOS)1   tool known as “Apache
Killer,” that could be leveraged by Anonymous poses a significant risk to organizations that are
operating vulnerable internet facing Apache web servers.

About Silvio Koerich – ENG/PT

About Silvio Koerich,
We have to denounce the federal police, the antisecbrteam ipiratesgroup and made ​​a expolsed with all his data from the full name, ID, Social Security number, mother’s name .. and the like, all that was sent to federal police vehicles through our personal and anonymous .. But unfortunately, there was no satisfactory response from the authorities, we also attacked the same site, butcan not be maintained forever to an attack site that it does not come back in the air, we do not have money and material for it.Frankly, this tactic used by him, is a tactic that consists of mediocre bloggers speak ill of anything to get on top of that sweeps …So worse that who writes the blog, read it and who is released, finding that the fact of passing information to the front will help in any way, such as the seizure of the site server and the arrest of its owner. The citizen is not even in Brazil, he is an engineer atSiemens and lives in Bogota. Let him then falls into oblivion, so he spreads disinformation, will be restricted to the target audience lout he has, and hopefully the police do its job .. But honestly, I find it very difficult to become a relevant case for them.There is so much more macabre by the internet that the police have to solve, and not the more a lout like this, who writes against blacks, makes virtual pedophilia, says that we have involvement with gay pedophilia .. LOL. Anyway, the guy is a mereinsignificant in society, and from the moment he commits a tort in fact, that is not bothering people who do not know what the hellinsist on reading it just to hurt their own morality, police will give due attention to it.
original in portugese:
Sobre Silvio Koerich,
nós já o denunciamos para a policia federal, o antisecbrteam e ipiratesgroup fizeram um expolsed com todos os dados dele, desde de nome completo, rg, cpf, nome da mãe.. e afins, isso tudo foi enviado a polícia federal por meio de nossos veículos pessoais e anonymous.. Mas infelizmente, não houve uma resposta satisfatória por parte das autoridades, nós também atacamos o site do mesmo, mas não é possível manter um ataque eternamente pra que o site dele não volte pro ar, pois não temos verba e material para isso. Sinceramente, essa tática usada por ele, é um tática de blogueiros medíocres que consiste em falar mal de qualquer coisa, para conseguir ibope encima disso… Então, Pior de que quem escreve o blog, é quem o lê e divulga, achando que o fato de passar a informação para a frente vai ajudar em alguma coisa, como por exemplo a apreensão do servidor do site e a prisão de seu dono. O cidadão nem mesmo está no brasil, ele é engenheiro da siemens e mora em bogota. Deixemos que ele cai no esquecimento então, assim, a desinformação que ele propaga, ficará restrita ao público alvo boçal que ele possui, e esperemos que a polícia cumpra seu trabalho.. Mas sinceramente, acho bem difícil isso se tornar um caso relevante pra eles. Existe tanta coisa mais macabra pela internet que a policia tem pra resolver, e não consegue, quanto mais um boçal como este, que escreve contra os negros, comete pedofilia virtual, diz que temos envolvimento com pedofilia gay.. rsrs. Enfim, o cara é um mero insignificante na sociedade, e, a partir do momento que ele cometer um ato ilícito de fato, que não seja incomodar as pessoas que não sei por que diabos insistem em o ler só para ferir a própria moralidade, a policia irá dar a devida atenção para o mesmo.

-Target: The 3 main people responsible for the termination of 8 officers in Arizona.
Police Chief Jeff Gilbert, Town Manager Alex Taft, And Asst. Town Manager Al Johnson. The eight officers filed complaints against Chief Gilbert for misconduct and harassment. When 3/4 of the PD stands up and says there is corruption going on, somebody needs to pay attention. But Gilbert, Alex Taft, and Al Johnson used their political influence on the Town Council to instead terminate the 8 officers. Time and time again you cowards have hid behind your attorneys using money from the taxpayers of a town already in an economic decline. You have harassed it’s citizens time and time again. Violated the Constitution and your own Oath you took as an Officer. We have enough problems with corrupt Police around the globe, we are going to stand up for the ones that stand up for the people.

- Give them a call and let them know we are watching.

An Open Letter from #OWSHungerStrike

Dear Comrades,
Today, I call on Occupiers across the world to join us on a hunger strike for open spaces. Repressive cities and states have violently shut down peaceful occupations. We need new space. We need fresh air to survive. We need to hear the voices of those who for too long have been voiceless. We need to liberate land for our movement to survive.
This is a call for escalation. A hunger strike is a serious thing. Across the world and throughout history, hunger strikes have liberated countries, communities and individuals from repression, slavery and injustice. From colonial India to modern Turkey; from the Northern Ireland H-Block cells to Palestinian prisons; from 1970s Cuba to present-day California, activists have used the hunger strike to protest political repression, human and animal rights violations and the inhumane treatment of prisoners, revolutionaries, and marginalized classes. A hunger strike amplifies the voices of the oppressed to declare they have been silenced for far too long.
I am here to say that we HAVE been oppressed and silenced for far too long. Our movement is creating space for us to rise up and speak out. We need physical space—not just in New York City, but in all the cities that have been violently evicted or have yet to establish an occupation. We ALL need space now!
Here, we are staging the hunger strike at Duarte Square at Sixth Avenue and Canal Street to request that its owner, Trinity Wall Street, temporarily grant us unrestricted access to this now-vacant space. We have asked the Church time and time again to grant us political sanctuary on their unused lands. It is time for Trinity to decide whether it is a Church or a real estate company. In other cities and communities, go stage hunger strikes in parks, plazas and public spaces to create new occupations and challenge our nation’s institutions to decide whether they work for the people or for the 1%.
Today, I am demanding space for the survival of our movement not with my words, but with my body. A hunger strike is a time for clarity, a time to reevaluate the significance of our movement and its revolutionary potential. It is an opportunity to reaffirm our own commitment. Today, we begin the next stage of this movement. We are THE OWS HUNGER STRIKERS. Join us.
In Love and Solidarity,

Qorvis info/contacts dump – Y U HELP DICTAT0RS 0PPRE$$?!

#ProjectPM in conjunction with #Antisec #Anonymous #OccupyWallStreet #OccupyKSt #OpBahrain #OpSaudi #OpSyria #OpYemen #OpEgypt
While the employees at @Qorvis are sitting at happy hour drunk off of their asses (https://twitter.com/#!/qorvis/status/142715730557796353) celebrating another 'successful' year of facilitating the oppression of foreign nations at the behest of their leaders who contracted it to them, we have been busy compiling their professional data and pouring through already existing public intel. Apparently, 1/3 of your firm leaving because of your disgust with the firm's actions against the freedom-desiring people of countries such as Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, amongst others is worthy of a celebration. Who knew!
In particular, we would like to single out Qorvis's relationship with the Bahraini regime, who Seth Thomas Pietras apparently trains 'robots' to disseminate propaganda to local media, newspapers and radio to warn Bahraini taxi drivers against giving disparaging quotes about the regime (special props to @subverzo for flushing this scam out: http://tinypic.com/r/zx9sms/5 ). Robots, in this case, likely means twitterbots, fake blogs that @QorvisGPS maintains and the monitoring of Facebook and, in Seth's particular instance, Twitter!
Anybody who wishes to give Seth a call, especially if you are #bahrain-i, to have him explain what's going on, you can reach him at 703-463-1842 or spietras@qorvis.com. He is not at the happy hour but is actually at his parents in the Berkshires for the weekend (https://twitter.com/#!/liketheclock/status/142751228156325888) , which is notorious for shitty reception, at least from mine and my colleagues' personal experience vacationing there.
To the people of #Bahrain: the al-Khalifa regime outsources much of it's propaganda spouting infrastructure to Qorvis. They are the machine that powers the propaganda enabling your oppression to keep you from a democratic state. What you choose to pursue as a result is up to you.

“There’s a quote that says, ‘Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must set yourself on fire.’ I like to think that at Qorvis, we light the match.”
Rich Masters joined Qorvis Communications in 2003 as managing director and became a partner in 2007. Masters is recognized as one of the top political and media relations experts in the United States and manages Qorvis media relations practice. In addition to developing and implementing multi-million dollar PR campaigns, Masters initiated Qorvis’ state-of-the-art media training studio in the company’s Washington D.C office where clients learn to “meet the press” and communicate their messages through any broadcast media. At Qorvis, he manages client teams for the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia, Pharmaceutical and Research Manufacturers of America (PhRMA), and the Sugar Association.
Masters came to Qorvis after serving more than six years as top policy and communications advisor to U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu (D-LA). He is a frequent spokesperson and regular TV and radio commentator on political issues. In a recent profile in The Atlantic Monthly, Masters was called the “Jedi Master to television pundits,” and NPR has referred to Masters as the “Professor of Punditry.” He is currently an on-air contributor to FOX News, MSNBC and the BBC, and is a fill-in host for the nationally syndicated “Bill Press Show.” Masters has served in nearly every capacity in broadcasting. From rock-n-roll disc jockey in Davenport, Iowa, to weatherman in Moline, Illinois, to Emmy nominated TV anchor and political reporter in Louisiana, Masters knows the broadcasting industry from the inside out.

As both Legislative and Communications Director, he helped set Senator Landrieu’s aggressive legislative strategy which positioned her as one of the leading moderate, New Democrats in the Senate. The strategy helped position her as a national leader while remaining strong in her home state.
In 2002, Masters was one of the architects who helped design Sen. Landrieu’s reelection campaign strategy and oversaw both earned and paid media efforts. It was an election she won despite facing a national trend against Democrats and being outspent nearly 3 to 1 by her opponents.
From 1982 until joining the Landrieu campaign in 1996, Masters served in nearly every capacity in broadcasting. From rock-n-roll disc jockey in Davenport, Iowa, to weatherman in Moline, Illinois, to Emmy nominated TV anchor and political reporter in Louisiana.
Masters graduated from St. Ambrose University with degrees in political science and mass communications.

Jessica Bayer's Summary
Senior Director/Recruiter at Qorvis Communications, one of the nation's largest independent communications firms. Qorvis was founded to be a better way of performing strategic communications.
We created a company that offers every available communications tool and the experience to choose and use the right ones—whether our clients challenge requires a traditional approach, a new media campaign or a mixture of new and old.
In doing so, Qorvis has elevated the practice of communications. To give our people the freedom to develop strategies using the right tools, we freed ourselves from the trappings of traditional public relations—practice areas, work silos and, most importantly, billable hours—all aspects of a tired business model that hinders client relationships.
Qorvis people have the energy and incentive to focus on providing legendary client service. The Qorvis approach gives us the freedom to collaborate with our clients on creative and effective solutions, to develop strategies that break on through.

Branding Palestine
Qorvis Communications is now in charge of Palestinian public relations and has registered as a foreign agent.
The Palestinians three-month, $90K contract with Qorvis involves PR, advertising, direct mail, social media as well as lobbying to opinion makers and policymakers.
From the paper work filed with the Department of Justice:
"The business community of Palestine is undertaking a branding campaign for Palestine. The goals of the campaign are to foster a better understanding of Palestine and its people and promote international trade and tourism.
Many people around the world do not have a clear understanding or picture of Palestine. This branding campaign is designed to break the many myths and misconceptions surrounding Palestine and help people recognize the great promise of growth, prosperity and peace that can arise from this land and its people. For example, Palestine has a very high literacy rate of 95 percent and Palestinian universities produce 45,000 graduates every year, including such world leaders as such as Mahmoud Darwish, the celebrated Palestinian poet who died two years ago.
The campaign is funded by the business community through the Palestinian American Chamber of Commerce. The campaign is being managed by Palestine's top public relations and advertising firm, Elam Tarn. The agency is organizing a global communications and branding strategy, with an initial focus on the US and Israel. In individual markets, Elam Tarn selects local agencies to help with the execution of the campaign. In the United States, Ellam Tarn has selected Qorvis Communications as subcontractor. The campaign will debut in September to coincide with the activities of the United Nations General Assembly."
D.C. based Qorvis is serving as subcontractor to Ellam Tam, a Ramallah PR firm and is funded by the Palestinian American Chamber of Commerce.
Qorvis, which has a history of servicing questionable regimes in the Middle East also represents Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Bahrain. John Deschauer, Tina Jeon, Sol Levine, Sam Dealey and William Dempster have been assigned to the Palestine account.
A recent article in the Huffington post documented an exodus of employees from Qorvis.
"In the last two months, more than a third of the partners at Qorvis have left the firm to start their own lobby shops, partly because of the firm's work on behalf of such clients as Yemen, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the Central African nation of Equatorial Guinea, say former employees.
"I just have trouble working with despotic dictators killing their own people," a former Qorvis insider tells The Huffington Post. "People don't want to be seen representing all these countries -- you take a look at the State Department's list of human rights violators and some of our clients were on there."
The article continues:
"One of the methods used by Qorvis and other firms is online reputation management -- through its Geo-Political Solutions (GPS) division, the firm uses '"black arts" by creating fake blogs and websites that link back to positive content, "to make sure that no one online comes across the bad stuff," says the former insider. Other techniques include the use of social media, including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter."

There is thousands of emails from May 2007 till present being sent
from this server (email above was a randomly selected from the database)
but according to the United Nations this server is old and hasn't been used
since 2007, and apparently they shut the server down when they had found out
it was hacked, yet i just obtained the above email from the
cj_batch_messages table in their database server which was meant to be down?
More Proof that the server was not old:
step_name : Cycle errorlog
server : WTRSFCP19265
message : Executed as user: WTRSFCP19265\SQL_db3_ServerAgent.
DBCC execution completed. If DBCC printed error messages, contact your

Wikileaks' 'spy files' show global monitoring

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange launched the website’s new project on Thursday — the publication of hundreds of files detailing a global industry that gives governments tools to spy on their citizens.They reveal the activities of about 160 companies in 25 countries which develop technologies to allow the tracking and monitoring of individuals by their mobile phones, email accounts and internet browsing histories.”Today [Thursday] we release over 287 files documenting the reality of the international mass surveillance industry — an industry which now sells equipment to dictators and democracies alike in order to intercept entire populations,” Assange told reporters in London. He said that in the last 10 years it had grown from a covert industry which primarily supplied government intelligence agencies such as the NSA in the US and Britain’s GCHQ, to a huge transnational business.
Assange has been in Britain for the past year fighting extradition to Sweden for questioning on allegations of rape and sexual assault, living under tight bail conditions. His case is due to come up again on December 5.
‘Hunt people down’
The documents on the website, include manuals for surveillance products sold to repressive Arab regimes.
They have come to light in part from offices ransacked during rebellions in countries such as Egypt and Libya earlier this year, as well as investigative work by WikiLeaks and its media and campaigning partners.
“These systems that are revealed in these documents show exactly the kind of systems that the Stasi wished they could have built,” said Jacob Abbelbaum, a former WikiLeaks spokesperson and computer expert at the University of Washington.
“These systems have been sold by Western companies to places for example like Syria, and Libya and Tunisia and Egypt. These systems are used to hunt people down and to murder.”
Experts who worked on the release warned that at present the industry was completely unregulated and urged governments worldwide to introduce new laws governing the export of such technology.
“Western governments cannot stand idly by while this technology is still being sold,” said Eric King, from Privacy International. — AFP

In response to the United Nations Statement stating that the information we gave was from a out dated server
1. I would just like to say the stupidy in unintelligence people amazes me
2. The Sad thing is Society has to lie to not make them look bad ( which i will be showing you here in a few minutes )
Now if we look here ( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-15951883 ) you will see a statement from a Spokeswomen for the UNDP she stated
“A spokeswoman for the UNDP said the agency believed “an old server which contains old data” had been targeted.
“The UNDP found [the] compromised server and took it offline,” said Sausan Ghosheh.
“The server goes back to 2007. There are no active passwords listed for those accounts.

Now there is a couple things i would like to point out and i will discuss it here in a little bit but
1. The server goes back to 2007 = False
2. an old server which contains old data = False
Now im going to show you how
1. So in Theory lets just assume technically speaking here that this ” Spokeswomen ” was indeed fact but how does one explain this?
Pinging undp.org [] with 32 bytes of data:
( Now here is the funny part :) )
ping *.undp.org ( hide the subdomain due to stuff we have on it )
Pinging webapp3.bim.undp.org [] with 32 bytes of data:
Funny thing is yesterday it was hosted on the same ip address as
But now all the sudden its on webapp3?
So if we done a Reverse IP check on the server on ip address 130 ( which Webapp is forwarded to undp.org )
the following sites are hosted on the server
Okay so now lets do a reverse ip check on the 161.* ip
If you notice Some of the Domains names are both on the same IP
So what does this mean?
Well 1 theories come into mind
1. They Switched the site of which we attacked yesterday to the Web3 Server ( Why? possibly to make it seem as if that statement from the old server makes it look as if its tru, But yout can play a player )
So with that said i would just like to say to the United Nations your tactics on Speaking to the press and hoping to make sure your backing your asses up in the best way you think you can is very very very pathetic
United Nations Is supposed to make this world a better place, security , Helping but yet they cant secure there own shit?
United Nations IT Staff is by far the worst ever and they need to get fired so such stupidity
The mere fact of them stating everything will be okay now is a lie if i wanted to i could leak over 30+ databases which is owned by United Nations now
with that said
United Nations you have 2 choices
1. Tell the media that the statement was false and it was indeed on the server
2. Or we will show the world our self
Make your Decision you have until next friday to make such statement

- Hello Media & Followers, we thank you dearly for following us. We are “so glad” to have your attention along with you pigs (because we now know we got your attention). me get a few things straight with the Operation. ]
- Follow @_f0rsaken – @_TeaMp0isoN – @_OpCensorThis ]
- #OpCensorThis #OpRobinHood ]
1) Chargebacks – Yes. There will be chargebacks but very minimal. Now which Charities/Shelters do we plan on donating this money to? Of course the ones that keep 15% for themselves and are un-honest. Do you really think we’d do this to ones who are non profit? Not at all. So get off your high horses and listen up.
2) Cards – We are NOT targeting Debit cards and nothing below the (Corporate/Amex) level of BoFA/CitiBank/Chase cards. Does this mean we target Classic Cards? No. Other banks? No. We have no intentions of even selling the data we have unlike others who would have profit intentions of using it to make BANK (MILLIONS) in for themselves. We are only doing under $1,000 at a time which helps quite a lot of people in that area. You banks: Need to stop fucking whining and start to up your security.
3) You are _NOT_ secure. There are tons of E-Commerce websites that still remain vulnerable, if it was such a big issue why don’t you go and offer your security services and stop charging a service? You are supposed to be a HELPFUL BANK, not PROFITEERING GLUTEN’S. There are also TON of corrupt bankers who work in your banks who have intentions of frauding your business for PROFIT. Chargebacks won’t stop us.
– So what is your solution? Apologize to all of your Corporate Customers for lying to them about Security. Verified by Visa also does not secure worth of shit seeing…I see foreigners offering the information to bypass that just for $5. That’s sad, that’s even from the Poor. We have intentions for the Corporations. And I know you won’t do this: Give yourselves up, sell your companies to the Credit Unions and never show your businesses in the United States ever again.
We’re glad to give you headaches you pigs, now it’s time to start squeelin’ because the annihilation has started way before you even know about.

I wanted to write a dark and emotionally-provocative introduction for this issue. You know, like
the one in Phrack #67.
It's 2.00 a.m., nobody hits this machine at this time of the day.
Logs track me, but I'll clean them. I know this road, I know this feeling,
I recognize the shivering. Turn on the music, the game is on. I'm sure
someone else is around here, someone else has seen this # before.
"I'll fuck you if you don't fuck me first, sir". Fair enough, this
is the rule. I'll go to sleep afterwards. I'm meeting some friends and I've
to take a train tomorrow. I'll sleep on the couch of someone I've never
seen before, yet I know him well.
Yeah, something like that. Too bad I realized I suck at it. Oh well, screw it.
In its place, let's take a look at some of the gems over the past few months from the Twattersphere:

Moving on, it seems that one of the more prevalent themes in conference media coverage this year has
certainly been the recruiting of hackers by the federal government. This is most likely due to
presentations given by Mudge (of l0pht fame) promoting Cyber Fast Track, a DARPA initiative that
offers funding and resources for individuals' security projects.

>> Note from GNY Staff:
>> To provide context to this editorial, dan has submitted two mathematics-based articles to this
>> zine issue.
Let's talk:
The number theory article in this issue covers several things you'd learn in the first chapter of a
number theory book. I didn't feel the need to write it because I thought I understood it better
than those books, or because I didn't think you poor starving Internet kids couldn't find access to
this information. Although it is kinda cool to say I'm going to get an article in GNY, I didn't do
it for that reason either. Look here kids, including mathematics articles in this zine (or any
other) is an awesome idea, but we need to be honest with ourselves. We're not going to be
publishing any original research here, so pretty much anything we write will be derivative. So, if
math is a good thing to publish in GNY, but there won't be any new math published, then what's the
point? The point is we can do it differently. We don't have to teach it like old stuffy professors
who bored us to death in school. We can actually attempt to make intuitive sense of things that
otherwise look like gibberish.
Look at Wikipedia's RSA article, or the article on RSA from the last issue. Both, of course, are
very formal. On Wikipedia in their worked RSA example, they compute Phi(p*q) = (p - 1)*(q - 1).
Now that we know what the Phi function is after reading the number theory article, does the above
line make any sense to us? It's using a special trick, p and q are both prime, and there's a
theorem that says the above is true. But we never see that Phi just means all the numbers less than
p*q that are relatively prime to it. This is cool since Wikipedia is supposed to be formal.
Similarly, in the last RSA article we didn't even get an explanation of Euler's Phi function, just a
convoluted (but efficient) way of finding the answer.
The only way we can include mathematics without adding pointlessness to zines is to start trying to
give intuitive, human understandable explanations. The advantage we have over textbooks and working
mathematicians is we don't have to be rigorous, we don't have to be formal. Yeah, those things are
needed, but don't worry, the professionals got that covered. Let's just have fun with it, and try
to actually comprehend what's going on.
So, I threw in an explanation of Inverses in Modular Arithmetic randomly at the very end. That's
because that was the only thing that was missing in explaining to you every mathematical concept you
need to know to see what is going on in RSA.
Of course, actually writing an implementation would require much more efficient algorithms than the
naive ones we'd probably implement after reading this article. Also, notice I said the concepts
going on "in" RSA, not the concepts needed to understand RSA. For that you'd need to learn more
There's some old folklore about being a better programmer that involves hitting "s" instead of "n"
while in a debugger. Similarly, to be a better mathematician it's good to step into the theorems
and see what's going on. How deep you want to go depends mainly on your interest. Don't feel bad
if you enjoy learning mathematics without the proofs. Understanding with higher levels of
abstraction is how we advance.
Make math fun, that's original content.
-=[ 0x03 Floating Point Numbers Suck
-=[ Author: dan
-=[ IRC: irc.gonullyourself.org #gny
On the fact that floating point numbers are stupid, and I hate them.
If you've been a computer programmer for more than a month, chances are you've been bitten by some
sort of error you weren't expecting when using floating point numbers. You probably chalked this up
to rounding error, or took the time to read one of those exceptionally boring articles about things
you should know about floating point numbers. The interesting thing is there is a very theoretical
reason based on pure mathematics that explains why floating point numbers are so stupid, and why we
can't do any better.
Before we can explain why floating point numbers are stupid using math, we first need to learn a few
basic mathematical concepts.
Set: a set is a collection of objects, where each object must be unique. Usually members or
elements of a set are written inside of curly braces.
{1,2,3} is a set, it contains distinct objects.
The integers also form a set, as they contain every positive and negative whole number, as well as
Sets don't really have to have anything to do with numbers. The collection of every dog on the
planet can also represent a set.
Function: In mathematics, a function, sometimes called a mapping, is a list of rules that associates
an element of one set to another set (or to itself), satisfying the following property: for every
input, there can be only one output.
Here's an example of a function, written in standard mathematical notation.
Let A = {1,2,3}
Let B = {4,5,6}
Let f:A->B such that f(1) = 4, f(2) = 5, f(3) = 6
The notation f:A->B means "f is a function (or mapping) that takes an element of the set A and
associates it with an element of a set B." We then define the rules to tell us which element of A
goes to which element of B. f(1) = 4 means that the element 1 of set A gets mapped to the element 4
of set B.
Mapping, as mentioned above can also be from a set onto itself.
Consider the following:
Let A = {1,2,3}
g:A->A such that g(1) = 3, g(2) = 2, g(3) = 1
This can be interpreted as "g is a mapping that takes an element of the set A and associates it with
an element of the set A." Although we won't discuss it here, the above function is actually a
permutation, a concept used quite a bit in higher mathematics.
Let's do just a few more examples.
Let A = {1,2,3}
Let f:A->A such that f(1) = 1, f(2) = 1, f(3) = 1.
Let g:A->A such that g(1) = 1, g(1) = 2, g(2) = 2, g(3) = 3.
In the above example, f is a function, while g is not. Remember above we said that for something to
be a function, then for every input there must be only one output. Well, look at g, g(1) = 1, and
g(1) = 2. That's two different outputs for one input, so not a function. f is a valid function
since it meets the properties that every input goes to only one output, even thought the output is
the same.
Ok, one final function:
Let N be the set of natural numbers. The natural numbers are sometimes called the counting numbers,
because they contain only the numbers you normally count with. 1,2,3,...
Let f:N->N such that, f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(3) = 3, ...
Another way to write the rules for the above function would be f(x) = x. This function definition
should be understandable to you if you have any experience programming. This function actually has
a special name; it's called the identity function, because it maps each element to itself.
Now, we just need to learn about one special type of function, often called injective functions, or
one-to-one functions. A function is injective if each input goes to a different output. Let's go
back to a previous example.
Let A = {1,2,3}
Let f:A->A such that f(1) = 1, f(2) = 1, f(3) = 1.
While f is a function, with every input going to only one output, it is not an injective function
since each input does not go to a different output.
Let A = {1,2,3}
g:A->A such that g(1) = 3, g(2) = 2, g(3) = 1
This (along with several of our previous examples) would be an injective function.
We're almost ready to learn why floating point numbers are stupid. We just have one more concept we
need to cover.
Countable sets: a set is countable... if you can count the elements inside of it.
The above is the non-mathematical notion of a countable set, and while it's intuitive, it can make
us think about things incorrectly when dealing with infinite sets. So now we're going to talk about
the mathematical definition of a countable set.
Countable sets: a set S is countable if there exist an injective function f:S->N, where N is the
natural numbers. Take a few minutes to think about this. This basically says a set is countable if
there is a function that takes each elements of that set and maps it to the natural numbers (the
counting numbers). It's pretty much a fancy way of saying a set is countable if you can count the
elements inside of it.
The reason the function has to be injective is because, otherwise, you're not really counting
anything. Consider f:A->A, where A = {1,2,3}, such that f(x) = 1.
Then f(1) = 1, f(2) = 1, f(3) = 1. This is a function from a set to the natural numbers, but you
haven't really counted anything. Now if you force the functions to be injective, each output is
unique, so once the output of 1 is used up, it can never appear again.
We can prove that A = {1,2,3} is a countable set by defining an injective function from A to the
natural numbers. Here we go:
Let g:A->N such that g(x) = x.
Then g(1) = 1, g(2) = 2, g(3) = 3. Notice how it seems we actually counted the elements of the set
A. We've also proved that A is a countable set.
Now let's use the same strategy to come up with some mind-bending results about countable sets.
Let N be the set of natural numbers.
Let f:N->N, such that f(x) = x.
So f(1) = 1, f(2) = 2, f(3) = 3,...
So there we have it. Probably not surprising that we can map the natural numbers to the set of
natural numbers easily. The interesting thing here is that this is the first countable set we've
seen that's infinite, often referred to as countably infinite. Yep, we just counted an infinite set
(this is the reason why the intuitive non-mathematical definition can start to fall apart).
Now let's look at the set of integers which we'll call Z. Surely, the integers can't be countable -
I mean there's totally like twice as many of them as there are natural numbers!... Let's find out:
Let f:Z->N, such that
f(0) = 1
f(-1) = 2
f(1) = 3
f(-2) = 4
f(2) = 5
We can see from this that it's possible to make a function that maps the integers to the natural
numbers, meaning the integers are in fact countably infinite. A similar example can be given to
show that the set of rational numbers are countably infinite. This will be omitted since the
description is best described pictorially.
Before we go any further, lets talk about cardinality.
Cardinality: fancy math term to say how big something is, usually described in notation as |A|,
which means "cardinality of a set A." The choice of the same symbols as absolute value is fitting,
since absolute values tell us how big something is. The idea of cardinality is fairly simple for
finite sets.
Let A = {1,2,3}
|A| = 3
Let B = {4,5,6}
|B| = 3
Let C = {1,5,7,9}
|C| = 4
Things get a bit weirder when talking about infinite sets. You see, the mind-bending thing that
happens when you talk about countability is that when you've shown a set is countably infinite,
you've show it is exactly as big as the natural numbers. So, believe it or not, this means from
what we've seen above that there are exactly as many integers as there are natural numbers (and
rationals). Basically, |N| = |Z|. To describe the size (cardinality) of a countably infinite sets,
we say |N| = aleph-null (written in original Hebrew lettering). Some GNY readers might recognize
the name aleph-null as similar to the handle of an author of a very well-known paper in computer
I'll stop with the countable sets now, but just to bend your mind a bit more, you can show that the
even numbers, odd numbers, primes, and many other things are countably infinite, which means they're
exactly the same cardinality as the natural numbers.
So, we're finally getting close to talking about those pesky floating points. Let's begin by
talking about real numbers. The set of real numbers is usually denoted as the set R.
Real numbers are slightly harder to define, but a good basic understanding can be had by saying that
it's the set of all numbers that can be written using decimal notation. 0, 1, 1.1, 2.1234123412341,
-50000.13412341341, 2000, 78 are all examples of real numbers. Floating point numbers are designed
to emulate these numbers; unfortunately, they have some problems with this.
Let's see what the big problem is by trying to count the real numbers.
For them to be countable, we need to find an injective function: f:R->N. Well, let's give it a
f(0) = 1 ; woo!
f(0.1) = 2, wait or maybe it should be f(.001) = 2, or maybe f(.0001) = 2,
or maybe f(.0000000000000000000000000000000000000000001) = 2.
Maybe you're starting to see the problem here: real numbers have a property that says if you're
given any two real numbers, there's an infinite number of real numbers between them. No matter how
close you pick two real numbers to be, there's always going to be stuff in the middle. We didn't
have this problem with natural numbers or integers. Pick any two integers or natural numbers, and
there's only a finite number of numbers between them. What we have discovered here with real
numbers is our first uncountable set.
Uncountable sets can even make a bit of sense when talking about cardinality. Uncountable sets are
bigger than countably infinite sets. Therefore, |N| < |R|, which is easier for us to wrap our heads
Now, let's talk about some fun facts about uncountable and countable sets. We saw earlier that we
couldn't map the real numbers to the natural numbers; more generally, we can say it's impossible to
create an injective map of a uncountably infinite set to a countably infinite set.
That, in a nutshell, is what's wrong with floating point numbers.
You see, computers represent all of their data using the binary numbering system. You can think of
these binary numbers as integers, or natural numbers - it doesn't really matter. What matters is
that the binary numbers we use to represent things are countable. So, in order for a computer to
represent real numbers, it must come up with a way of mapping real numbers to binary numbers, which
is equivalent to mapping an uncountable set to a countable set: it simply can't be done. For this
reason, it's impossible for us to ever have a completely accurate way of representing real numbers,
so long as we're using binary inside of computers.
Now, think about this. Floating point numbers are mapping some real numbers to the binary digits
our computer uses, which are countable. If one set can map to a countable set, then it is in fact
countable. The only way we could even begin to try and use real numbers on a computer is to limit
ourselves to a subset of the real numbers, and to deal with the "problem" real numbers have. That
problem being that for any two real numbers, there's an infinite number of real numbers between
them. That isn't true for floating point numbers used on computers. Computers have what's referred
to as "machine epsilon," which is the smallest change between two real numbers a computer can
represent using floating points. So, the first floating point could be 0, and the second floating
point could be 2.22045*10^-16, and third floating point could be -2.22045*10^-16, ...
Everything else is ignored.
One solution to the floating point numbers problem would be the use of analog computers (or "real
computers"). Wikipedia briefly explains this concept:
Computer theorists often refer to idealized analog computers as real computers (because they
operate on the set of real numbers). Digital computers, by contrast, must first quantize the
signal into a finite number of values, and so can only work with the rational number set (or,
with an approximation of irrational numbers).
These idealized analog computers may in theory solve problems that are intractable on digital
computers; however as mentioned, in reality, analog computers are far from attaining this ideal,
largely because of noise minimization problems. In theory, ambient noise is limited by quantum
noise (caused by the quantum movements of ions). Ambient noise may be severely reduced - but
never to zero - by using cryogenically cooled parametric amplifiers. Moreover, given unlimited
time and memory, the (ideal) digital computer may also solve real number problems.

N, Z, and R are usually represented using blackboard style text. You can
see examples of this in Wikipedia or with LaTeX by using \mathbb{N},
\mathbb{Z}, \mathbb{R}. Similarly, the Hebrew letter Aleph is usually
represent in its original form with a subscript of 0 to represent the
"null" part.
