Many of these online operations are either businesses that can be harassed but many are like the NY Times, it is revenge. As I will guess in links below, the hits online by these hackers were carefully chosen, this isn’t an ‘accident’ it is a shot across the prow of the Bilderberg gang members who run online businesses. The big shots are being taken down by anonymous hackers who could be from various countries and who probably, after hitting on top priority targets, pull up stakes and move on elsewhere and create new entities online.
And this news happened late yesterday: the Feds caught up with Darkside’s ‘banking’ of pretend ‘money’ called ‘bitcoins’ that Darkside stupidly thought was anonymous ‘money’ when it is on the INTERNET and ONLY the internet and is also hackable, traceable, etc. Very naive of them. They should have asked for gold deposits.
“After Colonial Pipeline’s quick notification to law enforcement, and pursuant to a seizure warrant issued by the United States District Court for the Northern District of California earlier today, the Department of Justice has found and recaptured the majority of the ransom Colonial paid to the DarkSide network in the wake of last month’s ransomware attack,” Deputy Attorney General Lisa Monaco said on Monday during a press conference.
“Today the FBI successfully seized criminal proceeds from a Bitcoin wallet that DarkSide ransomware actors used to collect a cyber ransom payment from a victim,” FBI Deputy Director Paul Abbate said Monday.
So, the present hack job is most likely Darkside’s revenge? I would guess it is. The Darkside hackers were very stupid, thinking that their beloved fake money was untraceable. They should know, ALL things on the internet are traceable! To pull a major fraud while asking for fake money that is a fraud, too, is hilarious to me. Sheesh! This is so stupid.
Hundreds of criminal gang members around the world were tricked into using a phone encryption app operated by the FBI to plan their heinous crimes, leading to their arrests, according to authorities. Law enforcement officers in Australia and New Zealand began to unveil the scope of what is known as Operation Trojan Shield late Monday.
Authorities in Europe were scheduled to make their own announcement early Tuesday, with the FBI’s San Diego field office doing the same at noon.
Ah, this could be the trigger, too! So, due to the arrests on the other side of the world in Australia, the hack happened this morning at 6 am EDT here in New York. As I write this story, more stories are popping up that are suspiciously similar, namely, hacking computers. The arrests were yesterday or last night and the news is this morning.
Kershaw said the idea for the app, called AN0M, was hatched by American and Australian law enforcement officers “over a couple of beers” in 2018. Undercover Australian agents would give phones with the AN0M app pre-installed to certain high-level criminals who recommended the app to their associates.
Global computer warfare is now full scale and with China rigging up for a possible war over Taiwan, this ads to the chaos, too. And the US has a mental midget leading us off the cliff. What a mess. Trump is furious about all this. And the verification of the vote by citizens in Arizona who are carefully checking the names and addresses of ‘voters’ there is nearly done and the entire DNC machine is quaking with fear as other states, seeing this, are beginning to do a proper recount, too.
