Russian Infiltration of the US Federal Government

NOTE: THIS POST HAS UPDATES AT BOTTOM For the next thirty seconds, I want you to disregard all political affiliation and ponder this; How many ‘coincidences’ does it take to make a fact? In the first week of December Sergei Mikhailov, the head of the Russian FSB cyber unit was in a meeting, when men came in, put a black bag over his head, and dragged him out. He hasn’t been seen since. And now he’s been charged with Treason, presumably for giving information to the United States of America. He’ll face a secret military tribunal and nobody will ever know what happens to him. Shortly thereafter Ruslan Stoyanov, head Russian FSB counterintelligence whose job it would have been to find spies, was also arrested as a traitor. In the last week of December, an ex-KGB ...

How to Win a ‘Cyberwar’ with ISIS.

“Never interrupt the enemy while he’s making a mistake’ ~ Napoleon I’m gonna start with one simple sentence: We have the upper hand here. Sometimes it doesn’t feel like it, but make no mistake WE HAVE THE ADVANTAGE, just as long as we don’t squander it. Here’s why: Nearly 6 years ago, as many of you know I started taking down jihadist recruiting, propaganda websites and forums. At that time they were often self-hosted servers, or offshore hosting providers, they were not prevalent on US social media like they are today. Most of the targets I chose were hosted overseas. My strategy then was really simple. I was trying to make it as difficult as possible for the bad guys to trust and maintain their own servers, and lines of communication. I figured I...

Wikileaks Are Really Scraping the Barrel

“Those who don’t know the value of loyalty, can never appreciate the cost of betrayal.” – Unknown Author Recap. For those unfamiliar with my previous writings regarding ‘Wikileaks’ you can catch the heck up right here, here, and here, in that order. I really am trying to stop going on about Wikileaks and Assange, but the bloviating self-righteous shitbird just keeps on pulling stunts to endanger our personnel and, as of right now civilians too. Sidenote: Fig 1.0 Assanges OKCupid Pic >> So what’s happened now? Well, two weeks a go a ‘project’ popped up calling itself the ‘Transparency Toolkit’ (Website). The project (so far) created an unimpressive script to crawl Linkedin profiles looking for keywords such as ‘intelligence’, ̵...

‘Wikisneaks’ – Trouble in paradise?

“The ship of democracy, which has weathered all storms, may sink through the mutiny of those on board.” ~ Grover Cleveland – 22nd and 24th President of the United States of America This is a recap of today’s events, surrounding Wikileaks, who I have mentioned on this blog previously both here and here, with ‘brevitized’ (yes I made that word up) backstory as follows; You’ll recall that following the release of the movie ‘The Interview’, which cast crazy lil Kimmy, supreme leader of North Korea in a somewhat bad light there was a… let’s call it a… ‘cyber-response‘. This response boiled down to an attack on Sony’s ‘cyber assets’. The perps called themselves the ‘Guardians of Peace’ and the FBI was quick to announce the perps were in fact the North Koreans themselves, but many, me included, b...

The Snowden Effect in Real Terms

“Those who don’t know the value of loyalty, can never appreciate the cost of betrayal.” – Unknown Author So next week, ole Greg Greenwald’s (or whatever his name is) new book comes out, and it’s no coincidence that on the same day, him, Snowden and the Wikileaks tree-huggers will be releasing a cache of the sensitive information ‘Fast Eddie S’ stole from the US. Now we all know what I initially thought about the whole ‘Snowden Affair’ from my previous blog post about it at the time, I’m not gonna go over all that again. If you want the backstory feel free to read it here. Not much has changed my mind since then. In fact, since then we’ve had time to observe the effects of Eddie’s so-called ‘patriotism’...

So… About This Snowden Affair

“Jesters do oft prove prophets” ~ William Shakespeare – King Lear, Act 5, Scene III.  NOTE: This post has updates below since time of writing. My twitter timeline is bulging with my views and commentary on this whole Edward Snowden/NSA thing, yet everyday there’s a new person asking me ‘ So J, what’s your take on the Snowden thing’ – well here’s my goddam take on the ‘Snowden thing’. Be advised it’s just what I think, and to those waxing on about your freedom of speech, then I’m entitled to mine too and here it is. Let’s start with Snowden Himself What we essentially have is a low-level gimp who has lied about numerous things and embellished others since identifying himself. What we do know is he fancied himself as a b...

Message to #anonOOPS

‘A small team of A players can run circles round a giant team of B and C players.’ – Steve Jobs Well it’s been a really interesting December. As most of you will be aware, I have taken a break from my usual activities to play with Anonymous/Op Payback. And in turn they have been busy trying to counter my efforts and identify me – thus spending less time defending Wikileaks by ‘attempting’ to take down the likes of Mastercard and Paypal etc. That’s Jester: ONE – Anon: err None. Now a lttle more on the Anonops collective and their tactics. They can’t use LOIC DDOS against me as I don’t host my own website on my own servers, and hitting WordPress or Twitter would really serve against them as these channels are also used by them...

Time To Speak Up – Part Three

“You can learn many things from children-how much patience you have for example.”-Franklin P Jones So as predicted it has come to pass that the fearsome ‘hackers’ (both terms used loosely) over at 4Chan are gunning for me personally. My instant reaction to this news – OMFG what is a skript kiddie like me gonna do now? After I had finished soiling pants, I thought okay these dudes deserve some of my valuable time. A little about 4Chan/AnonOps Now when they are not swapping tacky porno images on their boards, and talking utter garbage, they were involved cyber attacks on the websites of the Motion Picture Association of America, Recording Industry Association of America and others over their copyright protection efforts. That is to say the industry’s effor...

Time to Speak Up – Part Two

“Often the surest way to convey misinformation is to tell the strict truth” – Mark Twain Skiddie? DDOS? WTF? So I really need to clear up a few things that certain folks aren’t quite grasping regarding XerXes, methods and tactics. Contrary to popular belief, I do not have C&C of a botnet, by their very nature botnets require the injection in some form or other of malware onto unsuspecting user’s machines in order to gain enough ‘zombies’ to facilitate an attack. Any skiddie can create a botnet at the expense of the resources that don’t belong to them. (For example 4Chan/Anonymous). XerXeS however, as has been shown numerous times, does not require a botnet, zombie PC’s or other people’s bandwidth in order to successfully pull ...

Time to Speak Up – Part One

“To escape criticism – do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.” – Elbert Hubbard As you may have clocked – I have been ‘dark’ (with regard to speaking publicly) now for 9 days. I am afraid this has been a necessary course of action. It’s called OPSEC and something that operators such as me take very seriously. With this in mind, I would like to take this opportunity right here and now to convey my heartfelt thanks to all who have taken time out to send 10’s of thousands of messages in support myself, and my actions, including mainstream newsmakers and individuals alike. I am not going to name names (OPSEC again) but you all know who you are and I ‘hoorah’ you. Now, as I stated above, I have been ‘dark’ but have had ...
