All jobs from Hacker News 'Who is hiring? (June 2018 ...

UNSUBSTANTIATED RUMOUR: I'm hearing reports from normally reliable contacts that there are serious problems with the bitcon.com mining operation, and hackers are involved. Bitcon.com customers getting pissed. They're not mining on BTC or BCH. Looks like it's all over.

LOL. Any comment Salty Roger? MemoryDealers ?
Last block mined on BTC: 583242 (2 days ago)
Last block mined on BCH: 589572 (22 hours ago)
Apparently Emil Oldenburg has gone missing after publicly arguing with Roger, and Shaun Chong has been fired and for now Hans Engren is trying to fix things - and until we see any Proof of Work (i.e. mined blocks) from Bitcon.com it is obvious he is failing, and the hackers are in charge.
This is not a ransom attempt apparently - this is a seek/destroy takedown. All their office computers are down too!
UPDATE
Japan is getting this news right now How long for China?
UPDATE #2 2019-07-03 11:55 UTC
I've been provided with some technical details and it all makes sense:-
Of course /npc is quiet about all of this because of fear, uncertainty, doubt.. no not FUD about this news, but FUD about being banned for speaking against them or questioning the truth or their narratives in the "uncensored subreddit"
UPDATE #3 2019-07-03 13:16 UTC
cash.coin.dance really does need to fix its pie chart code. bitcoin.com still appears there in "blocks mined today" piechart however it's been over 26 hours now since last block mined on BAB.
Please anon sending me messaging stating: "Roger is 51% attacking his own chain as Unknown Miner to double-spend the 3 million BAB he is moving". Don't spread FUD. We know due to centralisation and checkpointing that it's impossible to do this so easily. I have 2 sources who I communicate with daily who are giving me all this info. More news to come, but I want to wait for some sort of signal.
There is now a thread of discussion on /npc will be nice to see how they deny/ignore this one, however attempts have already been made and corrected. Remember BLOCKCHAIN = TRUTH.
UPDATE #4 2019-07-03 14:00 UTC
About those 3 million BAB that moved across the chain.... hmmmmm.... what if Roger moved it, but didn't move it to where he expected, now knows it didn't go where he thought he sent it, and has additional problem of not being able to rollback the blockchain due to "checkpoints" after 10 blocks as other miners are mining including "Unknown Miner" ;) Miner collusion impossible if "Unknown Miner" says "NO". Do we get another emergency ABC release?
C'mon Roger - time to speak out and inform especially those people who idolise you on /npc. Nobody will blame you, easy errors to make. Blame Emil - he hired guy who setup the VPN.
UPDATE #5 2019-07-03 14:18 UTC
Finally coin.dance have fixed their piechart code! Now it's easy for all to see... where is bitcoin.com ?
OK I have been told I'm going to receive documentary evidence about all that has happened around 17:00hs UTC. They've told me they'd rather Roger be straight with his followers in the meantime, but hey - we all know Roger!
UPDATE #6 2019-07-04 05:12 UTC
I fell asleep watching coin.dance waiting for BTC block, sorry folks. I thought my contacts were late due to "variance" in their rendezvous time but no. They told me "will update at 5" and I presumed 17:00. Nope, it's 05:00. They've told me to watch the blockchain for clues, they realise best way to catch out Roger is to produce a series of events, and watch his social media reaction. We've already seen the "everything is OK" narrative at /npc as a block (589720) magically appeared after 26 hours on the BAB chain. In fact things were so good that David Shares was forced to make "dupe post" about it. If David Shares had been a user making a dupe post about a "bad topic" he'd of been banned by David Shares. We've got evidence logs of him banning 3 people in past few weeks just for making duplicate posts on the "we don't censor" subreddit.
Let's examine the blockchain, cause according to /npc "everything is OK".
Number of BTC blocks mined by bitcoin.com since this post was made: 0
Number of BAB blocks mined by bitcoin.com since this post was made: 3 (some are calling these "virtue signalling blocks", and it's a lot cheaper to virtue signal with BAB).
Last BTC block mined is still 583242 (2019-07-01 01:01:38). That's 76 hours without block.
Last BCH blocks mined:-
10 hour gap.
589747
589736
589720
26 hour gap. This post was made.
589572
589520
589487
589479
589442
If you think 3 BAB blocks in 36 hours is OK then I have a SHA257 (that's 1 better than a 256 model) miner to sell you.
"jim-btc we will update within 24 hours. Watch the blockchain. We repeat watch the blockchain". Roger that my secret contacts, thanks!
UPDATE #7 2019-07-04 10:24
I've posted all the block times for both BTC & BAB so you can see this "variance" lie is not going to work for very long.
This is NOT financial advise
If you have BAB - dump that shit faster than a smelly diaper... it's obvious to all except those trapped in the BAB BABble bubble that something really stinks!

Decred Journal — May 2018

Note: New Reddit look may not highlight links. See old look here. A copy is hosted on GitHub for better reading experience. Check it out, contains photo of the month! Also on Medium

Development

dcrd: Significant optimization in signature hash calculation, bloom filters support was removed, 2x faster startup thanks to in-memory full block index, multipeer work advancing, stronger protection against majority hashpower attacks. Additionally, code refactoring and cleanup, code and test infrastructure improvements.
In dcrd and dcrwallet developers have been experimenting with new modular dependency and versioning schemes using vgo. @orthomind is seeking feedback for his work on reproducible builds.
Decrediton: 1.2.1 bugfix release, work on SPV has started, chart additions are in progress. Further simplification of the staking process is in the pipeline (slack).
Politeia: new command line tool to interact with Politeia API, general development is ongoing. Help with testing will soon be welcome: this issue sets out a test plan, join #politeia to follow progress and participate in testing.
dcrdata: work ongoing on improved design, adding more charts and improving Insight API support.
Android: design work advancing.
Decred's own DNS seeder (dcrseeder) was released. It is written in Go and it properly supports service bit filtering, which will allow SPV nodes to find full nodes that support compact filters.
Ticket splitting service by @matheusd entered beta and demonstrated an 11-way split on mainnet. Help with testing is much appreciated, please join #ticket_splitting to participate in splits, but check this doc to learn about the risks. Reddit discussion here.
Trezor support is expected to land in their next firmware update.
Decred is now supported by Riemann, a toolbox from James Prestwich to construct transactions for many UTXO-based chains from human-readable strings.
Atomic swap with Ethereum on testnet was demonstrated at Blockspot Conference LATAM.
Two new faces were added to contributors page.
Dev activity stats for May: 238 active PRs, 195 master commits, 32,831 added and 22,280 deleted lines spread across 8 repositories. Contributions came from 4-10 developers per repository. (chart)

Network

Hashrate: rapid growth from ~4,000 TH/s at the beginning of the month to ~15,000 at the end with new all time high of 17,949. Interesting dynamic in hashrate distribution across mining pools: coinmine.pl share went down from 55% to 25% while F2Pool up from 2% to 44%. [Note: as of June 6, the hashrate continues to rise and has already passed 22,000 TH/s]
Staking: 30-day average ticket price is 91.3 DCR (+0.8), stake participation is 46.9% (+0.8%) with 3.68 million DCR locked (+0.15). Min price was 85.56. On May 11 ticket price surged to 96.99, staying elevated for longer than usual after such a pump. Locked DCR peaked at 47.17%. jet_user on reddit suggested that the DCR for these tickets likely came from a miner with significant hashrate.
Nodes: there are 226 public listening and 405 normal nodes per dcred.eu. Version distribution: 45% on v1.2.0 (up from 24% last month), 39% on v1.1.2, 15% on v1.1.0 and 1% running outdaded versions.

ASICs

Obelisk team posted an update. Current hashrate estimate of DCR1 is 1200 GH/s at 500 W and may still change. The chips came back at 40% the speed of the simulated results, it is still unknown why. Batch 1 units may get delayed 1-2 weeks past June 30. See discussions on decred and on siacoin.
@SiaBillionaire estimated that 7940 DCR1 units were sold in Batches 1-5, while Lynmar13 shared his projections of DCR1 profitability (reddit).
A new Chinese miner for pre-order was noticed by our Telegram group. Woodpecker WB2 specs 1.5 TH/s at 1200 W, costs 15,000 CNY (~2,340 USD) and the initial 150 units are expected to ship on Aug 15. (pow8.comtranslated)
Another new miner is iBelink DSM6T: 6 TH/s at 2100 W costing $6,300 (ibelink.co). Shipping starts from June 5. Some concerns and links were posted in these two threads.

Integrations

A new mining pool is available now: altpool.net. It uses PPLNS model and takes 1% fee.
Another infrastructure addition is tokensmart.io, a newly audited stake pool with 0.8% fee. There are a total of 14 stake pools now.
Exchange integrations:
OpenBazaar released an update that allows one to trade cryptocurrencies, including DCR.
@i2Rav from i2trading is now offering two sided OTC market liquidity on DCUSD in #trading channel.
Paytomat, payments solution for point of sale and e-commerce, integrated Decred. (missed in April issue)
CoinPayments, a payment processor supporting Decred, developed an integration with @Shopify that allows connected merchants to accept cryptocurrencies in exchange for goods.

Adoption

New merchants:
An update from VotoLegal:
michae2xl: Voto Legal: CEO Thiago Rondon of Appcívico, has already been contacted by 800 politicians and negotiations have started with four pre-candidates for the presidency (slack, source tweet)
Blockfolio rolled out Signal Beta with Decred in the list. Users who own or watch a coin will automatically receive updates pushed by project teams. Nice to see this Journal made it to the screenshot!
Placeholder Ventures announced that Decred is their first public investment. Their Investment Thesis is a clear and well researched overview of Decred. Among other great points it noted the less obvious benefit of not doing an ICO:
By choosing not to pre-sell coins to speculators, the financial rewards from Decred’s growth most favor those who work for the network.
Alex Evans, a cryptoeconomics researcher who recently joined Placeholder, posted his 13-page Decred Network Analysis.

Marketing

@Dustorf published March–April survey results (pdf). It analyzes 166 responses and has lots of interesting data. Just an example:
"I own DECRED because I saw a YouTube video with DECRED Jesus and after seeing it I was sold."
May targeted advertising report released. Reach @timhebel for full version.
PiedPiperCoin hired our advisors.
More creative promos by @jackliv3r: Contributing, Stake Now, The Splitting, Forbidden Exchange, Atomic Swaps.
Reminder: Stakey has his own Twitter account where he tweets about his antics and pours scorn on the holders of expired tickets.
"Autonomy" coin sculpture is available at sigmasixdesign.com.

Community Discussions

Community stats: Twitter 39,118 (+742), Reddit 8,167 (+277), Slack 5,658 (+160). Difference is between May 5 and May 31.
Reddit highlights: transparent up/down voting on Politeia, combining LN and atomic swaps, minimum viable superorganism, the controversial debate on Decred contractor model (people wondered about true motives behind the thread), tx size and fees discussion, hard moderation case, impact of ASICs on price, another "Why Decred?" thread with another excellent pitch by solar, fee analysis showing how ticket price algorithm change was controversial with ~100x cut in miner profits, impact of ticket splitting on ticket price, recommendations on promoting Decred, security against double spends and custom voting policies.
@R3VoLuT1OneR posted a preview of a proposal from his company for Decred to offer scholarships for students.
dcrtrader gained a couple of new moderators, weekly automatic threads were reconfigured to monthly and empty threads were removed. Currently most trading talk happens on #trading and some leaks to decred. A separate trading sub offers some advantages: unlimited trading talk, broad range of allowed topics, free speech and transparent moderation, in addition to standard reddit threaded discussion, permanent history and search.
Forum: potential social attacks on Decred.
Slack: the #governance channel created last month has seen many intelligent conversations on topics including: finite attention of decision makers, why stakeholders can make good decisions (opposed to a common narrative than only developers are capable of making good decisions), proposal funding and contractor pre-qualification, Cardano and Dash treasuries, quadratic voting, equality of outcome vs equality of opportunity, and much more.
One particularly important issue being discussed is the growing number of posts arguing that on-chain governance and coin voting is bad. Just a few examples from Twitter: Decred is solving an imagined problem (decent response by @jm_buirski), we convince ourselves that we need governance and ticket price algo vote was not controversial, on-chain governance hurts node operators and it is too early for it, it robs node operators of their role, crypto risks being captured by the wealthy, it is a huge threat to the whole public blockchain space, coin holders should not own the blockchain.
Some responses were posted here and here on Twitter, as well as this article by Noah Pierau.

Markets

The month of May has seen Decred earn some much deserved attention in the markets. DCR started the month around 0.009 BTC and finished around 0.0125 with interim high of 0.0165 on Bittrex. In USD terms it started around $81 and finished around $92, temporarily rising to $118. During a period in which most altcoins suffered, Decred has performed well; rising from rank #45 to #30 on Coinmarketcap.
The addition of a much awaited KRW pair on Upbit saw the price briefly double on some exchanges. This pair opens up direct DCR to fiat trading in one of the largest cryptocurrency markets in the world.
An update from @i2Rav:
We have begun trading DCR in large volume daily. The interest around DCR has really started to grow in terms of OTC quote requests. More and more customers are asking about trading it.
Like in previous month, Decred scores high by "% down from ATH" indicator being #2 on onchainfx as of June 6.

Relevant External

David Vorick (@taek) published lots of insights into the world of ASIC manufacturing (reddit). Bitmain replied.
Bitmain released an ASIC for Equihash (archived), an algorithm thought to be somewhat ASIC-resistant 2 years ago.
Three pure PoW coins were attacked this month, one attempting to be ASIC resistant. This shows the importance of Decred's PoS layer that exerts control over miners and allows Decred to welcome ASIC miners for more PoW security without sacrificing sovereignty to them.
Upbit was raided over suspected fraud and put under investigation. Following news reported no illicit activity was found and suggested and raid was premature and damaged trust in local exchanges.
Circle, the new owner of Poloniex, announced a USD-backed stablecoin and Bitmain partnership. The plan is to make USDC available as a primary market on Poloniex. More details in the FAQ.
Poloniex announced lower trading fees.
Bittrex plans to offer USD trading pairs.
@sumiflow made good progress on correcting Decred market cap on several sites:
speaking of market cap, I got it corrected on coingecko, cryptocompare, and worldcoinindex onchainfx, livecoinwatch, and cryptoindex.co said they would update it about a month ago but haven't yet I messaged coinlib.io today but haven't got a response yet coinmarketcap refused to correct it until they can verify certain funds have moved from dev wallets which is most likely forever unknowable (slack)

Transcript of George Webb Video Series Part 302 "Hillary's Leakers, Hackers, and Henchmen" [@Georgwebb / #HRCRatline]

  • Day 163.3. Old Guard vs New Guard at Tewksbury, MA - YouTube
    • Day 163 this is part 3
    • And it's too cold outside, so I have to do this inside
    • Here with Task Force, here with Deep Milwaukee
    • And we're just talking about this Frank enzyme Bradley right now
    • And we're trying to see if that's the same person that was in the global Intelligence files there WikiLeaks in 2012
    • And if people don't remember those leaks, they came out, and there are several embarrassing leaks about numerous companies around the world
    • Now, what I put forward to the group was that these were targets
    • These were Andrew McCabe type targets
    • The way infiltration works is you put your person in--kind of like Amy Dacey at Sony--you put your person in right below them, and then you come out with some thing about Amy Dacey telling--Obama jokes--that are off-color and get her fired
    • And then your person goes up, and then becomes a Sony director
    • That is Andrew McCabe's MO throughout his whole career
    • So that's why I say that's probably what he was doing with the Global Intelligence Files
    • I know it's an FBI operation because it was this guy named Sabu who was the handler, who was running around recruiting people to to hack the Global Intelligence files at Stratfor
    • Now, that's the deniability: they're not really hacking, but they say if they get caught oh it's that 20 year old guy that got--recruited by that 30 year old guy, not this team of hackers
    • So having said that the Task Force did a lot of research on this on this Bradley guy
    • And this ENSYM company that's mentioned prominently
    • Now, it's it's not enzyme with a Z it's enzyme turn the Z around to an S
    • And I think its SYMA
    • TF: YMA
    • I think it's actually [ENSYMA (ENSYMA ENGINEERING)] yeah
    • Now, give me some of the background on this guy he's he's a graduate at George Washington
    • TF: yeah master's degree George Washington in public administration
    • G: Well his business is in he worked for CERN
    • TF: a DoD gun license in Texas
    • G: He said he worked for a secret Intelligence agency
    • TF: Yes Secret Government company
    • And I'm gonna guess that's gonna be like a DynCorp or Leidos or Conceras or something like that
    • TF: And he said that he was working on viruses--admitted to that, but he will not go into the details of that
    • G: And his wife has a company called Global Logistics
    • So is she running stuff all around the world to CERN, like Californium, as well as bioweapons?
    • It's kind of although the whole ratline thing that we've been talking about through the whole series, potentially
    • TF: Right, [google redacted] AND HIS WIFE WAS A PART OF THE AIR FORCE NATIONAL GUARD AND SHE HAS A LOGISTICAL BACKGROUND, [/google redacted] she has a degree from Harvard, she does a lot of it a lot of Education behind her, a lot of different companies that she's involved in, a lot of logistics, it's kind of similar stuff that we've seen many many times
    • G: Throughout the whole seriously
    • So--this and the reason why I say Tewksbury, Massachusetts it could be that that's a wink
    • If you have this new guard an old guard--the whole War of the Roses in England was new guarda nd old guard
    • Richard the third, I always think of as Dick Cheney, you know, "Now, as winter of our discontent, made ready by the summer of York"
    • If that's the old guard, if Cheney--Bush all those guys Rumsfeld, and then on the left side Podesta and Manafort etc are the old guard,
    • The new guard could be--Pompeo, Mattis, Dunford, potentially Kelly, potentially the DIA guys like Flynn and Tony Shaffer are the new guard
    • If you wanted to really embarrass the old guard, and say, "hey we know your tricks. By the way, this guy was an expert (or not an expert)...But he was carrying around a lot of Blackberry enterprise servers as well as BlackBerries. Is he the replacement for Imran Awan, for secure encrypted communications?"
    • Again, anytime I see that it's kind of like, "well why do you have a burner phone--why do you have 18 burner phones in your backseat?", sir? --That kind of thing
    • It's kind of another signature, that says, "hey this person could be involved in illegal activity"
    • The best way for the old guard to catch the new guard to embarrass the old guard is to catch them in a city about ready to do something--
    • The Boston Marathon is coming up on the 17th in Boston: is this another repeat of the Boston Marathon?
    • Remember Graham Fuller yeah I did the Gladio plan Gladio B, now, is this Gladio C
    • Again, the Clockwork Orange thing--let's let's make a lot of terrorist incidents to get funding and keep our power--is that what's happening?
    • And the fact it's in Tewksbury was one of the key battles of that War of the Roses, where the new guard won and made our current Queen
    • So any last thoughts on?
    • TF: the only other thought was he called the police saying that he thought someone was breaking into his room at the hotel--they had guns in this hotel, which makes absolutely no sense to me if you have a--a storage full of AR-15s and weapons and gas masks and stuff like that, you call the police on yourself
    • TF: Especially if you're part of some secret Government program
    • G: Unless the new guard was trying to embarrass you
    • TF: Right, or the new guard made the call
    • G: the new guard made the call that was embarrassing you
    • {{ 911: just an observation: Maybe Agent Pettiworth et al thought YOU and Jason were part of the new guard and not just concerned citizens? }}
    • {{ 911: youtube is very incapable of transcribing TF, its annoying as f }}
    • TF: They said [that/not?] for the police to go into the house. It was coming out in the paper is that he made the phone call and that seems kind of ridiculous to me. Maybe the new guard made the phone call
    • G: Unless he had a remote camera, where he could see people going in to
    • TF: even then he would go back himself. I mean you wouldn't call the local cops
    • G: Right. So it looks like maybe that may be Andy's coming in to cover for him or something
    • But it looks like it we could have averted something happening
    • I think of Claude D'estre every time I think of the Boston Marathon
    • And [thinking] "Claude you would look at awful lot like that guy who was six feet away from the bomb, and is this another Colorado CIA School of Mines operation?"
    • So we'll see we'll see what happens
    • But I think people are going to connect the dots on this one
    • And certainly there's a very active Q, would you say Deep Milwaukee?
    • There's a an active Q discussion on this right now?
    • DM: Not Q but the anons
    • G: Ok not Q but the Anons
    • So there you have it
  • Day 164.4. SAIC’s Sam Visner Did NSA, MdA, and MITRE - YouTube
    • It's day 164 part 4
    • So here is where I met Deep Florida, this boarding officer for the Coast Guard the other night
    • He kind of confirmed the things that we had said about maritime data awareness packages
    • And how that they could call off interdiction people like The Stzroks family in Corpus Christi, or The Strokes family in San Diego can say at the Coast Guard level uh-uh from DIA can send a message down saying
    • No interdiction guide that boat to the target or I could bring a yacht into Port of Miami or port of Jacksonville or Port of Tampa or all the way up and down the coast--Charleston, South Carolina, Virginia Beach, all the Navy ports all the way up to where Joe Crowley is with his Wackenhut boat
    • So that's good
    • I want to talk to Deep Florida again, and we probably need to talk to him more, because that's real on the line, on the front lines Intelligence, where he was--seeing these same drug dealers over and over and over again at the 24 mile marker, and the nautical mile marker
    • The other thing about the first story we did today which was Bill Binney
    • It kind of dovetailed into that because SAIC, is the one who wrote the maritime data awareness package for all this
    • SAIC is also the company that wrote trailblazer, the program that took the place of thinthread--Bill Benny's thinthread
    • And the guy who bought it is a guy by the name of well there was one guy by the name of Ben Black, who was SAIC
    • And then he hired a guy named Sam VISNER who was also SAIC
    • So a lot of these NSA guys end up being SAIC guys
    • And that's the revolving door as far as the Navy's concerned
    • And you might have seen us cover that when we went up to Laurel racetrack
    • We talked to all the SAIC guys ex-Admirals who were--parlaying their horses around the Laurel Park
    • The second story we did today on Frank Bradley, Frank enzyme Bradley, was also interesting because he's in these global Intelligence files of the WikiLeaks
    • And I looked at the files there's 29 of them
    • And they're mostly spreadsheets
    • And there's it's kind of the same kind of audit coded spreadsheet
    • It goes from 2004 to 2011 there's 29 spreadsheets
    • And his emails in there
    • And it's for like 1995 a month
    • And there's all these Army guys
    • So that unlike--Bill Binney, and the Navy, and SAIC, and NSA
    • This was the second story we did today which is Frank enzyme Bradley, with the Bradley Fighting Vehicle right, turns out its Army--is that a fake name, because he's Army
    • And he's dispersing Army--gas masks and flashbang grenades and all sorts of things to JTTF units all over the country to these dog teams that that we've got?
    • Who knows--we don't know that
    • But it is interesting he is in this kind of list
    • And does that list get compromised in 2011?
    • ...And that's why the Fusion GPS is created?
    • Still, we don't know the answer to that either
    • But meeting you had another whistleblower here, so we're gonna stay in Milwaukee a little bit longer
  • Day 164.6 Meet Leah Vukmir - Next Senator From Wisconsin - YouTube
    • It's day 164 I think this is six
    • So we met the Senate candidate here that's going up against Tammy Baldwin
    • I wanted to--make a political statement, helping Paul Nealon against Paul Ryan here
    • Now, he lost by 50 points
    • So--Paul Ryan's gonna win
    • But it's probably more important that Leah Vukmir win as the candidate in the Senate seat, because the weight Wisconsin's organized is they have one Republican Senator and they have one Democratic Senator
    • Ron Johnson, as you probably know as the Republican Senator, he's in the Intelligence Committee...and been a good supporter of transparency
    • And then there of course is Johnson Wax in Milwaukee
    • And then there's Johnson Controls in Milwaukee the--the building controls
    • And then there's also Johnson & Johnson and Racine
    • So there's a lot of Johnson's going on here--I'm gonna stay away from that {{LOL}}
    • But Tammy Baldwin the Democrat is coming up for reelection
    • And the III I talked to her quite a bit
    • Leah is a very nice person, and she gave me about a half an hour of her time
    • And what I like about her she's a nurse
    • So she's got--she's just a nurse who wants to do the right thing
    • But she's very involved with manufacturing
    • And very involved with the police unions, the fire unions, the emergency services, all the people that are first responders
    • So I really wanted to give a strong statement of support
    • And again, a candidate that comes out says "hey I saw you, I want to come out, I want to meet you I want to introduce myself"
    • And I think these are the important people
    • She said I wasn't on the Trump train at first--she's a big Scott Walker person
    • She was part of that whole kind of hey you can't hold the--Government and the people, SEIU, you can't hold everybody hostage
    • But she said hey as as I got to know Trump better I got on the Trump train, and I'm a really strong Trump supporter
    • Again, I think Trump of I sat with all slew of of Trump supporters
    • Democrat and Republican tonight
    • And the key thing I keep hearing is: he's a businessman. He wants to bring jobs back to Wisconsin, and Michigan, and Ohio, I'm from Ohio--Indiana, I'm from Indiana
    • I want they want to bring jobs back I don't care if it's Mugwump or whatever, your party is, Trump wants to bring jobs back
    • So I want to support her I want to tweet her out
    • Again, it's Leah VUKMIR V U K M I R
    • And I think it's just a strong candidate
    • I think it's it's a person who it didn't necessarily doesn't have Paul Neilins background in manufacturing
    • But she know she's making an active effort--she's been in 66 of the 72 counties
    • And I just wanted to make a strong statement, because I just believe that she comes out, everyone I introduced her to tonight she's listened to and interacted with and listened
    • And as is kind of a person of the people
    • So I don't normally do political things
    • But this is a candidate I felt very strongly about, and her platform
    • And she needs to of course when the primary--it's a late primary here in Wisconsin--it's an April primary
    • So it's important that we do a lot of meet and greets
    • And a lot of fundraisers early to make sure that these kind of candidates get a chance to win in November against a kind of a very globalist
    • And I hate the word 'globalist'
    • I like the word 'carpetbagger' -- I've seen the destruction of towns in my hometown in Fort Wayne Indiana International Harvester plant left when I was in--teenager
    • And I've seen the destruction in Ohio, firsthand
    • And I've seen the destruction in Michigan
    • So I'm not as familiar with Wisconsin
    • But--you got Harley Davison
    • And we had this trade discussion--let's just take all the names
    • And brand names out of it
    • If it was Brand X over here
    • And that's your trade representative
    • And brand Y over there take China out of it take take the U.S. out of it
    • If your guy came back, and said hey I got a great deal we pay 35% tariff over there
    • And we get 1.2 percent tariff on their stuff coming--isn't that a great deal?
    • Everyone would say you're no longer our trade representative--get out
    • That's what we have right now,
    • And I think it's a hundred percent tariff on harley-davidson products in in Japan
    • And at least to 35% in China--I'd like to check those facts
    • So anyway lots of trade discussions
    • I know everybody's watching Final Four, but I just wanted to throw that out that we have a US Senate can adhere tonight that came out to me, and she wanted to tell her story, so there you have it
  • Day 165.1. The Good America - Binney, Wormwood - Olson Part 1 - YouTube
    • It's day 165
    • And this is part one Happy Easter everyone
    • Still bloody cold here somebody from Tewksbury--Gloucester, actually--about five miles from Tewksbury
    • Said they reenact the Battle of Tewkesbury every year
    • So I thought that was interesting
    • So maybe we'll reenact the old guard and the new guard with the Tony Schaefer and the Cyber Command boys
    • I expect Tony Schaefer to be getting a position with the Trump administration here pretty quickly in the Intelligence area
    • And maybe these Army guys--these Army Intel guys will push through a split with NSA and the Navy Intel guys
    • So we'll have a check on the Navy Intel boys
    • So anyway that's Tewksbury
    • So that's this battle reenactment they have in Tewksbury, where this guy was caught with these enzymes Frank enzyme Bradley
    • Riding around and his Bradley Fighting Vehicle throwing out bill swing enzymes on the population flu and flu viruses on the population it
    • Was he doing that? Who knows
    • But we can go look to Tewksbury now, every year to reenact our battle between this Navy
    • And Intel Command
    • And these new Army cyber boys that's that battle is developing one two great documentaries out
    • And it almost tells our story in terms of what a format of this story might look like
    • One is the "Good American", which tells a Bill Binney story about how he had Thinthread how this guy named a SAM Visner came in said oh my gosh this is great we're gonna do trailblazer instead collected all
    • Then when 9/11 happens, Sam Visner is the guy who says, "this is a cow we can milk for 15 years at SAIC"
    • So he leaves NSA, the Sam Visner, and goes to SAIC
    • And these are direct quotes--that this is the--opportunity of a lifetime
    • That same Sam visitor is in this Q discussion now, with this MITRE group in this this Highland Forum in this kind of public-private, pay-to-play partnerships
    • So, interesting to follow these things "full flight of the arrow" as I call that, all the way from 9/11 pre 9/11 all the way till now,
    • Sam Visner still doing--and SAIC--does the maritime data awareness program, said that ZIPZORP was talking about SAIC
    • SAIC formulates themselves with a new name called LEIDOS it's kind of a shuffle giving us a little "lead" LEIDOS shuffle--it's still SAIC, psst STILL SAIC
    • So a little Leidos shuffle there
    • So anyway the good American talks about how 9/11 could have been avoided with Bill Benny's Thinthread
    • And a lot of the folks I've talked to Diane Roark at length
    • I've talked to Curt Wiebe
    • And interacted with him on Twitter talked with Bill Binney
    • So a lot of the people in the series I recognized
    • And I've never never talked to a Thomas Drake, though, Tom Drake
    • But I would like to
    • But I think it's a great series to watch for the first part of our series, before the Awans got involved which is surveillance
    • And the misuse of surveillance
    • And maybe the Awan's are a part of that too, because you use a third-party Intelligence service like PAC ISI to have deniability on surveillance
    • But then there's a second part, which is not just surveillance, but now disruption we're actually gonna go out and try to make you--your life miserable
    • And that's really the second documentary
    • And it's a six-part 40-minute a shot documentary called Wormwood
    • But it is the dirty tricks part of the CIA, getting rid of you once you become a problem, once you start saying hey this isn't good
    • And we're using these truth serums and scopolamine to do--parties it--late at night in Montreal with--our good doctor up there, Dr. Gottlieb, where we did a series at the <
  • Day 165.2. Wormwood Part 2 - Bill Swing’s Ft Derrick - YouTube
    • This is part 2 of day 165
    • And this is following up on wormwood
    • Great movie, because it it's kind of also William Kobe versus Sy Hersh in terms of getting the story about out about Frank Frank Olson
    • This guy who was worked at MKULTRA, Sidney Gottlieb, at the McGill University in Montreal where we were in this series
    • So a lot of the places
    • And things that we've mentioned the series Fort Detrick and the bio weapons program in Maryland...are you go around to these different places and it connects all the dots in a long format, which is really nice
    • And here's Sy Hersh at the end saying, "hey this story's too big for me"
    • And we're we heard that before I feel like he was just recording our ending, and just said well let's just slap it on the end of this documentary
    • But anyway you'll see Sy Hersh say this is story's too big for me at the end, in that in that story
    • But this guy Frank Enzyme Bradley--being caught: was that just so they could double down the amount of spending on the Boston Marathon on the 17th?
    • So was that kind of an inside job the old guard kind of their little clockwork orange' Games?
    • Fear
    • Or was it the new guard was it kind of the new US Cyber Command--kids was with with Flynn and Tony Shafer who I expect to be named to position Intelligence position with Trump here pretty quick?
    • Was it this new split?
    • This new separation of powers were gonna have between the Army guys--the US Cyber Command, and the Navy guys that the NSA?
    • Who knows? We'll see what happens
    • But it was interesting tie into this guy who was at the CDC, who went disappearing
    • Is that why all these flu viruses are being disseminated in these different places?
    • Who knows
    • And also we have the NRA event coming up in March May 3rd 4th and 5th
    • Did Krylova and Bogacheva go to that before? Yes of course they did
    • That was in Dallas this year
    • But where was it before?
    • Where where was Ted Cruz? Where with all those events?
    • We still don't know--none of that's come out
    • And one of the other things I've noticed about the Q phenomenon is I much I have a much greater understanding of how unknowns with Q and being on boards
    • And talking with all these people last night that follow Q
    • And the creation of these memes
    • And I think that's something that our series needs to do is create memes from the series
    • And so I'm gonna continue to create these playlists
    • So that people can go through
    • And say here's all the Navy Intel--from beginning to end in the whole series
    • And then create a Navy Intel meme with the old ones because I think the ones are extension of Navy Intel
    • And then do the same thing for the other significant memes in the in the series
    • So even though Q took a lot of my viewers away
    • And a lot of my researchers away, in a way it's good, because they show you a more effective way of doing open sourcing, creating these memes...
    • So I look forward to a good day of reporting
    • We won't say where all the places we're going, but have a happy easter everyone
  • Day 165.3. Preview of Andre Taggart Reveal - NNSA - YouTube
    • OK It's day 165 and this is part three
    • And this is sort of a sneak peak to the solution to the whole series
    • And I've said before we're kind of going from a pay-to-play world where things were doing below the table
    • And I the three initials there are MBZ the crown prince of Abu Dhabi
    • And sort of Hillary Clinton moving into the Trump world which is MBS, which is above the board--crown prince of Saudi Arabia or just do everything aboveboard
    • And the people who are doing the below the board business are pissed
    • So this series really has been looking at how that below the board business was done
    • So collecting metadata on how that was done--David Petraeus--the create the creation of this rogue NSA which is NNSA
    • Which is Not so Nice NSA
    • Basically created a Uranium cover for the last 20 years
    • And everything basically below that was this weapons for drugs or weapons for minerals or weapons for human resources kind of business
    • And that's the story of the last 20 years in Hillary Clinton and the whole crew,
    • And Navy Intel and her kind of unholy creation of this alliance with with NCIS or or this just rotten core inside a Navy Intel
    • So I just created a list about Navy Intel if you want to review the Navy Intel list if you haven't been following this series
    • But basically you have to find the server: where are they doing this?
    • You have to physically find it
    • So we go to Washington DC we we find--we collect a lot of metadata
    • We find the Lorton address where all this business is being conducted
    • Now, I do I think that's the real address?
    • No, that's the parallel construction if they ever get caught
    • They say there's deniability--it's just a just a group of people that are doing--find a bank fraud there's a small deal--it's not a big deal
    • The real action is at the Navy Yard
    • And that building 213 an old DIA building which was called a Threat Analysis Center
    • And this we've said this in the series for almost a year
    • So this isn't any surprise to anyone
    • The part I'm gonna let out today is I knew Taggart was a fake from the beginning
    • And I knew Tane Taggart was a fake from the beginning
    • I knew that I mean they weren't--just renting the property
    • But there was a reason why I had to go with that deception, because you let people who are in the business
    • (And they're just doing their jobs, right?)
    • You let people who are doing the business let the let the charade play out let the school play play out because you get valuable data although all along the way
    • I had to make Taggart the hero in order so other people would come forward and so he would continue talking
    • That was the key part
    • Keep giving us more metadata
    • It's too bad we couldn't have had a couple of more interviews with Taggart a couple of more interviews with Laurel Everly
    • All the people that are kind of either knowingly or unknowingly involved
    • An Tane Taggart would have been a good interview
    • Jacquayla would have been a good interview
    • But that's fine we still solve a puzzle now
    • Which is basically the drives were the takeaways for going to Pakistan--that those were the real drives--the ones that went in March, not the ones that were the decoys in April, that were left in the Rayburn office building
    • And that was the server's--that's how the trade occurred
    • It was on that caucus server--the drugs for weapons trade
    • The next thing was once got the servers--and the Sprayer home could have also been a place where people were were compromised
    • But then the next piece in in the whole thing is actually how do they do it?
    • And it was with these containers and
    • So we got down to the containers
    • And then how what goes into container?
    • So we really really got to a granular level with the cars--Alpha Jalloh ring to do all that
    • And everything else since that has been proving who with in Navy Intel have been the key people to put this whole thing together?
    • So I'll just leave it right there Taggarts a good guy
    • I think in Bethesda I remember I was in Bethesda, Maryland
    • And I almost said Taggarts role
    • And I held off, because I wanted to find out more about the people that were inside Navy Intel they we're actually running this
    • But I think you may know who who those people are already
    • But I'll just leave that for a more non XSTAR general logistics pay-sized version
  • Day 165.4. Saipov’s Mt Prospect Trucking - Near Blues Brothers Auto Auction - YouTube
    • It's day 165 here we are at beautiful Bussy Road
    • Go down to the end of this road on Bussy Road here in beautiful Mount Prospect
    • And you have the Mount Prospect auto auction of Blues Brothers Fame
    • Remember that Jake said we are on a mission from God
    • So the interesting thing about this is Saipov
    • Saipov truckers
    • They have a Saipov--the guy who ran down did the run down in Chelsea--ran over those five Argentinians
    • I think one of them was a nuclear scientist
    • The other one was that woman from Belgium the Belle from Belgium
    • We also have though sighs I've had a trucking company in Cincinnati trucking company
    • And car company in Cleveland car company here in Mount Prospect, Illinois close to Rahm Emanuel, close to Schneider, we're jan Schakowsky's district now
    • And of course one in Tampa
    • So the key here is chain migration and lottery: not such a good plan
    • The Saipov truckers? Not such a good plan
    • The Uzbekis--drugs going one way, weapons going the other, Uranium cover: not such a good idea
  • Day 166.1 Naugty NSA School Play Falling Apart - YouTube
    • It's day 166 part 1
    • And yesterday I revealed Andre Taggart is sort of a player in a Shakespearean play, if you will, covering the Awans, and the state support of the Awans spy ring in Congress, as well as Awan-Contra: the trading scheme for weapons and drugs in the Congress
    • Did they also have a sex ring in Congress, with all of the Awans beatings?
    • Well that's for another day
    • But certainly Taggart would have nothing to do with that
    • But the I am dubbing NNSA or the naught NSA as the key conspirator behind this, in much the same way we can say the revolt from the West at Tewkesbury 500 years ago was led by Richard the 3rd, I'm pinning this on Andrew McCabe, Hillary Clinton, and the NNSA
    • This is going to be a kind of a as we've said before kind of a power elite move
    • Its gonna be SAIC, key contractors like Lockheed, Northrop Grumman, doing major projects like Trailblazer at NSA Bill Binney Fame versus Thinthread, as well as Maritime Data Awareness applications like the application we singled out which was the Pandas, which which lines up well with Seth Rich in the Congress
    • You don't remember yesterday or the symbol first of all for NNSA
    • Here's I dubbed this this morning about four hours ago
    • And I talked about the different contractors involved in the NNSA
    • Now, I also created a playlist
    • So if you're not familiar with all the eleven or twelve different videos I've done on NSA
    • But the key here is Uranium under color-of-law with Uranium, now, I can trade anything below
    • And it provides me kind of the same sort of drayage that it provided the British Navy
    • Don't tell me what's of below decks just tell me how much it weighs and give me my commission for transporting it
    • And I do believe that Navy Jack has kind of I'm not going to say manipulated Crowdsource the Truth
    • But I do believe it has been sort of an information operation since the beginning to put the lid on this NNSA activity
    • I think the folks there knew that this would eventually come out if the crowd dug in on it
    • And there's been all kinds of diversionary tactics
    • But I think yesterday, Navy Jack threw the towel in
    • And now, he's trying to do anonymous strikes
    • So I won't say who Navy jack is specifically, but there are a few Navy Jack's out there
    • And specifically I think what they want to bury as this Andre Taggart interview in this Laurel Everly interview
    • Because it flies directly in the face it flies directly in the face of the truth and
    • But they give away key facts that unravel this whole NNSA pay-to-play scheme
    • I think also all of the anywhere you see those routers that at the Sprayer house that Jason filmed are going to be important as well
    • So I do believe the NNSA is trying to shut it down
    • Whether that's a Navy Jack or not we don't know for sure
    • But here's another article that came out that said, "oh by the way we all signed a slip a paper that advocated our rights of checking out and vetting The Awans in this scheme"
    • It's obvious that once a spy ringin Congress and also arms for drugs trading ring in Congress has state support and
    • So after the fact these 44 different Democrats are gonna say, "oh, but there was a piece of paper that we could sign that have been abdicated all our responsibilities in terms of vetting, because Debbie Wasserman-Schultz said so"
    • And I think we're hot on the trail of all the pieces of this network
    • They brought in these Uzbeki truckers to ship this stuff around here in Chicago--where I am in Mount prospect--was just one of the many trucking companies two in Ohio, one in New Jersey, in Paterson, New Jersey; one in Tampa, Florida as you can see here
    • So eventually with research this will all come to light
    • And that's why I think they want NNSA wants to bury these buried these films of Andre Taggart
    • So that's where we are today
    • I just want to say that I think we're hot on the trail
    • The metadata leads me to believe more than ever that we will put the pieces of the puzzle together even if we don't get certain documents from the court
  • Rosemont Casino - Bring Out Your Hawala and Your Dead - YouTube
    • Beautiful day 166 this is part two here at the Rosemont casino
    • And I just want to show you if you just recently had a sniper incident where an unfortunate person died at your hands you could bring the body here
    • And I'll show you how far you have to go to turn the body in to get five thousand dollars in chips here at the Rosemont casino
    • And I'm not kidding
    • If you look up Bioresource Center
    • And this is a show we did a long time ago I think it might have been over a year ago
    • We talked about there was prisoners at Holman square down south of Chicago down by the United Center where the Bulls used to play
    • That was a key place for bringing in--just as Christopher Steele does liaison operations, Intelligence operations in the United States for the FBI, we do liaison operations for other countries here in the United States for them
    • So we torture prisoners here for other countries
    • Again, that eludes their rules about informing their oversight bodies about operations
    • So if you don't remember what a liaison operation was: it's a way of avoiding the reporting that's in our Constitution about talking to the gang of eight, which is four people from the Congress on the Senate side, four people in the Congress on the on the side of the Senate
    • Two Senators from each party, two Congressmen from each party
    • But literally right there village of Rosemont is where BioResource Recovery Center was
    • Now, I'd only have to walk a little bit further down under that bridge to actually go to the USDA facility
    • Now, the USDA facility--if you recall--is where what we had right next to our our Gülen schools
    • I can't remember--they usually give a a name like Wisdom schools or Affinity schools or--Great Clocks by Kids Schools--they give them some kind of lofty name which is fine
    • But if you remember my visit there we basically had a lot of great teachers
    • So that they can farm the money through, and launder the money through
    • It's always great it's like a union you can always farm the money through gangsters love unions lots of workers lots of paychecks
    • But then you have one guy who can sue who's an English teacher from Turkey or some country like that: usually Turkey
    • And he is the interpreter
    • And then you got one guy in the back that cannot speak a word of English
    • And I call him the Halal money changer
    • So right behind me is O'Hare Airport
    • And literally all day he does is just count out Halal
    • Now, what comes into this you a facility here?
    • Well fruits and vegetables and also meat perishables things that could carry insects etc or food borne viruses
    • So they need to be irradiated
    • They need to make a trip to Ames, Iowa
    • So if you don't remember that part of our trip, you can go back and look at that
    • USDA
    • Now, I did
    • (I hope I don't get a copyright strike on the parking lot music)
    • I did interview a USDA person, and it turns out they loan a lot of money now to women farmers and also minority farmers
    • They want to get women started in farming and minority farmers
    • This turns out to be extremely difficult to get an American a loan
    • But very simple if you're from a different country
    • I know that's gonna us I know how hard that is gonna be for people to believe
    • Again, ninety nine point five percent of the people in USDA doing a great job
    • I only need to compromise 0.5%

    • I've now, made it from the airport with all the Halal cash
    • And the hawala you can see the armored car here I'm bout ready to take it in to Rahm Emanuel here at City Hall behind me
    • But before I do that because it's all Bitcoin now, it's all on hard drives, it's all on Imran's hard drive
    • So there's literally terabytes worth of Bitcoin
    • So makes it easier than the old days where you needed a big Brinks truck I still like to ride in the Brinks truck
    • But as you remember from the movie The Blues Brothers
    • You've got the Picasso here looks like it's a different color
    • Maybe this isn't the Picasso? Maybe--the I thought the Picasso was across the street from City Hall anyway
    • Well we'll go over there and find out if it's a Picasso or not
    • Maybe they replaced the Picasso
    • This is the scene where all the police cars pile up the Chicago police cars the Chicago's finest over there as you can see I do believe this is Richard Mary Daly square if it's not that I've just made a mistake
    • But as you can see now, all I need is hard drives to take Bitcoin to Pakistan
    • And I'm saying that probably happened on the 7th of March
    • And I picked up where I found the decoy about a month later with Andre Taggart
    • And now, of course I've exposed Taggart, because I see them shutting down the channel
    • I see I think there's foul play--in the runs--rotten in the state of Denmark, something rotten in the state of Denmark as Hamlet would say
    • So if that isn't Picasso then I don't know what is
    • But I do think there's something rotten in the state of Denmark
    • And they're shutting down Jason's channel we have to get all those interviews
    • And phone calls from Taggart before they go away as--44 different Democrats, maybe up to 50 waved, doing a background check on Imran Awan
    • And all the conspirators Lisa Maria Bartiromo says it's the biggest story of the year that's not been covered

Questions Answers
a more serious question, what is password cracking like? Bruteforcing hashes, looking through source code for vulnerabilities, doing advanced maths or something fourth? First I'd try to figure out if the software was merely using access denial or encryption. With access denial, the data isn't encrypted, but the software won't show you the data without the password. For purposes of criminal forensics, you're not allowed to change the data in any way for it to be admissible in court, but getting access to the file before you have a password can often be helpful. To figure that out, I'd just look at the file in a hex editor; if I could read it, it wasn't encrypted. The next easy step is to scan the program for cryptographic constants; these are things like s-boxes or tables of rotation constants or such that tell me what crypto functions, if any, are being used. For example, if I see 637c777b anywhere, I know it's probably using AES. If I see 77073096, that's a CRC32. If I see 67452301, it's using MD5. After that I'd use a debugger and a program like IDA Pro to start at the point where you type the password and figure out what the program does with it. This is what often took the most time and was the most tedious. Early versions of MS Access, for instance, just XORed the password with a fixed constant; anyone could break those passwords immediately. The toughest one that I was able to break was the encryption on WinZip; it was much better than most stuff I ran into, but still weak enough that I could break it. That was the one I enjoyed the most, like an extra-challenging Sudoku or something.
The hash function wasn't cryptographically strong, so I was able to run a lot of it backwards and get a enough constraints on the input to skip most possibilities. What is this process called if I wanted to learn about it in an academic setting? Cryptanalysis.
WinZip; it was much better than most stuff I ran into Is it any better than 7Zip? My attack was on the old encryption method. WinZip has since upgraded to AES, like 7-Zip. The only way to attack an archive made by a recent version of either of these is with a dictionary attack, trying every password.
What was the biggest password you ever cracked? Nowadays, most software companies use strong crypto, so the difficulty of cracking the password increases exponentially with the length. Back in the late 90s, it was mostly "roll your own", so the strength depended a lot more on the software than the password chosen.
That said, the password I was most pleased with was a 60-character randomly chosen password on a WinZip file using the ciphertext-only attack that later got published.
Was the content worth the effort? What was the content? The content was irrelevant to me; the fact that I had broken the encryption so thoroughly on such an important file format was the exciting bit. When it was in beta, the FBI started sending us files with suspected child porn for us to open. Thankfully I never had to look at any of it---that was someone else's job---but it felt good to know that I was able to help with that. Once we integrated it into the toolkit, of course, the FBI would just use our software themselves.
Now, though, I think that it's more important that people be taught what is right and have freedom---even if such drimes still exist---than to have a society in which every activity is so policed that crime is impossible. I think we should make it hard for the government to do such enormous, sweeping surveillance as we've discovered they've been doing.
If there's sufficient evidence to suspect someone of a crime, the government has plenty of resources to target that individual, and no software will prevent them getting the information they want. Splicious, if it is funded, will help in preventing surveilllance at national scales.
It's funny how no one seems to be responding to the thing you're actually talking about... it seems to me you're raising awareness about splicious. Can you say more about that? EDIT: I need to make clear that it doesn't fully exist yet! We need money to continue to make it real.
As I wrote above, it's a platform for encouraging the creation and curation of content. The idea is to reward both those who create content and those who share it. You may have seen that picture of handing out Facebook likes to 3rd world kids; merely "liking" something or upvoting it doesn't actually help somebody make a living. So all likes/upvotes have real money behind them in this system. The originator of content gets 90% of each upvote, while the remaining 10% is distributed down the chain of resharers to the donator.
We want artists and musicians to use it, but also scientists, authors, and journalists. We think the journalists will be particularly interested both because of the potential to get supported directly in the wake of digital media, but also because of the security features we intend to implement, like perfect forward secrecy.
We hope scientists will like it, because big academic publishers like Elsevier charge tens of millions of dollars for bundled access to their journals and have something like a 36% profit margin. The scientists write and review the articles and edit the journals for free; Elsevier turns around and charges them for the privilege. Splicious would allow people to set up electronic journals quickly, while contributions go directly to the authors and the editors.
Could you inbox me my password if you wanted or felt the need? That would require getting Reddit's collection of password hashes. It would take some effort, but probably a lot more than would be worth my while.
Well, it used to be easier. Wow! Yeah, hopefully they learned something after that. :P.
Could you be a very rich man if you used your powers for evil? I could have in the 90s. I think the FBI are a lot better at dealing with crime on the internet now than they were then.
Hi, I'm a math/CS undergraduate and find this stuff fascinating. However, I haven't a clue how to get started. Any reccomendations on how to get into password cracking and hacking? As to your specific topics, the days of easy password cracking are largely over: any software worth spending money on will use strong crypto. The best one can usually do is a dictionary attack distributed over many computers.
Awesome! What is your ed background? When I got the job I was getting my undergrad degree in physics. I went on to get a MSc and have just finished my PhD.
How much were you taught on the job vs what you had learned through self study? All of the math I learned in school or from Schneier's Applied Cryptography. I taught myself the rudiments of programming as a kid and all my electives at university were computer science classes. I learned to read assembly code on the job.
What would you say is the most lucrative area of infosec (both for black and white hats)? If you want to make enormous amounts of money, you start a company and get bought out or have a successful IPO. That's very risky, though; if you want stable good money in infosec, go join Google's security team: I did and loved it!
Are you employed now by Google? No, I left last year to start working on splicious. I'd like to keep doing so, but we need funding!
Whats this splicious you keep referring to? It's a distributed secure communications and computation platform. It has features to encourage the creation and curation of new content, but is intended to be a general purpose secure distributed computation platform.
The computation framework is based on pi calculus; I've written a paper with Greg Meredith and Sophia Drossopolou showing that we can use Caires' sspatial/behavioral types as a security policy language and let the compiler check that the implementation fits the policy. (TL; DR: We can prove that we don't have security flaws of various kinds.)
Are you Hackers or War Games fan? I loved it when you nuked Las Vegas. Suitably biblical ending to the place, don't you think?
Have you ever hacked people? Not without their permission.
That sounds a bit weird. Hahahaha. It's not much weirder than tattooing: Link to io9.com
Of course they still had to get the hashes somewhere, but there are some pretty powerful tools in the public domain these days, who knows what is behind the curtains in the federal side of the house...(proposed quantum computing password cracking for instance) People simply don't have the ability to remember passwords that are strong enough to resist the password crackers. If your service has the option to use two-factor authentication, use it; when attackers steal gmail accounts, the first thing they do is turn it on, because it makes it virtually impossible for the owner to get it back. If your service doesn't have 2-factor auth, use a long passphrase. Here's some math: if you just use lowercase letters and have a 16-character password, there are around 1022 passwords to try. If you start using numbers, too, there are around 1024, so a hundred times harder. But if instead you double the length of the password, there are around 1044, which is a sextillion times harder. Quantum computation is certainly interesting to the NSA, but the technology isn't up to code cracking yet; scientists are just at the edge of beating the error bound necessary for quantum computations with more than a handful of qubits. Link to www.news.ucsb.edu
How could a regular person like me learn the basics of this? What did you mean by "this"? Reverse engineering, password cracking, or secure distributed communications?
All of it and where should one start? I've done custom rainbow salt sables and attempted wpa2 attacks for fun and cracking hashes using Cain and Able. For reverse engineering, woodmann.com is the place to be. Get a copy of OllyDBG and IDA Pro; there is an older version available for free. Here's a reasonable intro to some of the techniques: Link to yurichev.com
Actual question how good is router security with passwords for example can you or have you hacked a router (guessing default passwords don't count)? I haven't ever tried breaking router passwords; I have my own router, so I don't need to use anyone else's.
Are you the guy that made this video: Link to www.youtube.com ? Yep. In addition to the content creation and curation stuff, there's also a notion of controlling who gets access to personal information. In the video, I drew how Alice can prevent Bob from knowing her name or address while still proving that she's 21.
But we need money to make it real.
Are you in fundraising mode? Are you doing crowd funding? Do you have a site? Yes, we're doing crowd funding. The site is linked in the description.
How is there such a huge disconnect between you and I? I send hours on the computer and can't do shit with it other than reddit and excel spreadsheets. How do you get into it? Is it a lot of reading? How does it work? I think you become good at doing what you spend time on, and you tend to spend time on things that you like doing. I learned this stuff because it made me happy. I get a thrill out of this sort of thing, so I keep coming back.
That said, with enough hard work, you can become good enough at something that it's no longer a drag: playing piano for the first few years sucks. Who wants to sit there plunking out "Mary had a little lamb"? But once you have the skill to actually read music and play it, then you're free to explore all your musical tastes. After you've played a lot of the music you love, you get a feeling for chord changes and what sounds good to you, so you can improvise your own music.
It's the same way with math and programming: there's some hard stuff at the start, but once you become good enough at it, you can start behaving like an artist and do your own thing.
The equivalent of learning "Mary had a little lamb" is introductory programming sites like KhanAcademy or codeacademy or code.org or a bazillion others.
What do you think of the new NSA, using the Patriot Act? I think the Patriot Act traded an enormous amount of liberty for what turned out to be virtually no increase in security.
Is that the same platform that this ex-Googler was talking about in this video Link to www.youtube.com. Yes, that's Vlad Patryshev. He was one of the guys who made Orkut. He was actually really excited about splicious and said, "I've been waiting for this since FidoNet."
Thanks. I'll look into all that. Lol, well that's a different story, a lucky one too. So you had no knowledge or experience with programming and they just hired you? What degree were you going to go after if you went to collee? Oh yeah, did you end up going to college after all or you just stuck with the job and learned from them? I had plenty of programming experience, but no crypto experience. I couldn't decide for a while between computer science and physics. Eventually I compromised and got a degree in applied physics; basically, all my electives were CS. I finished my bachelor's degree, then lost the job when the dot com bubble burst, went to New Zealand and got a MSc in CS, then started a PhD but ran out of money, went to work for Google's security team and started working on the PhD part time. I worked there for six years, then quit to work on splicious. I just finished the thesis and will defend later this year.
I might be late to the party, but what do you think of the XKCD password comic? This is the method I'm currently using with the help of Make Me A Passwords generator. It's spot on. When given the option, use long phrases rather than gibberish. LastPass can manage your online passwords by generating very long gibberish but only require you to use something memorable.
You actually suggest LastPass over KeePass(X)? I was using LastPass as an example of the genre, like how the southern US refers to any carbonated soft drink as "coke". I haven't made an extensive study of the offerings.
Are you Jesus? 'cause you look a lot like him. I was babysitting with another guy for a group of moms once, and when one of the moms dropped off her young kid---maybe four or five years old---he got really big-eyed and nervous. I thought he was afraid of the beard and hair: sometimes people would cross to the other side of the street when they saw me coming. So I invited him in, showed him the toys, and we all played and had a good time.
When his mom came to pick him up, he ran over and said, "Jesus is fun!"
Hey Mike, my understanding is that you've built a distributed platform and also adding on bitcoin support so that every post you make on splicious could potentially generate revenue. i would say that it's a new take on an alternate virtual economy and want to try as soon as they allow public use. are you planning to add some kind of reputation system to it? say, if i want to look for something a'la craig's list style rather than post my poetry? We've been thinking about reputation systems, but don't have any firm plans. Part of the problem with reputation systems online is that people do "pump & dump", using their reputation to steal something. If anyone has ideas or references about fighting this, please PM me.
Was most of your work just using parallelism brute forcing, or did you look for vulnerabilities in encryption standards. Also what is your opinion on the vulnerabilities of dual eliptic curve cryptography? Nearly all of my work was cryptanalysis of the relatively weak cryptography that was prevalent in the late '90s. We started turning to parallelism when MS Word improved its crypto to the 40-bit stuff that was the limit for software you could export.
The vulnerability in the PRNG for dual ECC was clearly inserted by the NSA and weakened everyone's crypto, even the US military and government's. I'm surprised that there's not more outcry from the other government organizations.
Last pass gotta remember that one. The o e thing I'm worried about though is my email is under yahoo and I've heard they are famous with being hacked because of crappy protection programs or leaks even is this true? Looks like Yahoo has 2-factor auth available. If you turn it on, then even if crackers do figure out your password, they won't be able to log in with it because they don't have your phone. That's the single best thing you can do.
Can you explain this like you would to someone who's never heard of hacking? There's no password you can remember that would stand up to modern cracking software. If you use a long passphrase, you might stand a chance. 2-factor auth is the only way to stay safe.
Can you tell me how to turn it on in a pm please. I'll just put it here, since everyone ought to know this: Link to www.zonealarm.com
What's your computelaptop specs? I had a Macbook Pro, like most of Google security team, and got myself another when I left. It has all the benefits of unix with really nice hardware and good suport.
What makes one password cracker different than another? Edit: Wonderful beard. Generally it's how well they take advantage of the parallelism in the GPU. And thanks!
Do you feel That bitcoin as a currency will make it even with all of the theft and ease at which people are being hacked and having coins stolen. I have no particular attachment to bitcoin as a currency. Ben Laurie, for example, has some excellent points about how to keep bitcoin secure, you either have to trust the software authors or spend half of all computing power for the rest of eternity. If you're going to trust people, there are much more efficient ways to mint money. Link to www.links.org
For our purposes, bitcoin provides a fairly simple micropayments service; any other distributed currency would probably work just as well.
We also don't store the wallets ourselves; we use blockchain.info.
I feel the success will be based on micro payments. IE reading a Wall Street journal article for a .05 or .10 fee and not having to buy the whole newspaper or article. Just my 2 cents.. Exactly. A journalist would write an article and share it with WSJ. WSJ would reshare it, and readers could support the journalist by contributing a mBTC. WSJ would get a cut and the journalist would get the lion's share.
So how hard would it to be to break a password of say"iFuCkInGHate2001!!" If crackers get hold of the file with the password hashes, nearly all passwords will be cracked, even quite long ones like yours. A similar password (18 printable chars) that has been hashed once with SHA with no salt would take less than an hour to crack on a single PC. Adding salt makes it harder to build tables where you can just look up the password instantly, but no slower to just brute force.
People REALLY need to use 2-factor auth to be secure.
So what can a person like me who doesn't know much on how to make a password more secure, except making it super long and complex to do to " feel safer" of not getting hacked. First, choose reputable services like GMail, where they take security very seriously. A cracker who can't get to the database of password hashes is forced to attempt to log in repeatedly, which can be detected and throttled to a safe rate.
Second, use 2-factor auth if it's available.
Third, use something like LastPass that generates a long random password for each site and stores it encrypted under a single password that you remember. You never type that password into anything online.
I bet your computer is awesome It's a Macbook Pro.
