FBI To Be Closed?

Broken-FBI-Crimeshop.jpg

Judicial Watch’s Chris Farrell Seems To Think They Should!

In light of this last week’s mass shooting, Judicial Watch Director of Investigations, one Chris Farrell seems to think that the FBI should just shutter up shop and close for good.

Chris-Farrell-Judicial-Watch-CrimeShop.jpg

What’s more is that Chris is blaming Christopher Wray, the current Director of the FBI for failing to protect America.

Christoper-Wray-CrimeShop.jpg

Which is totally laughable to me, correct me if I am wrong here but isn’t our entire government failing America these days?

At any rate, to be fair the FBI was warned at least twice about the Florida shooter, Nikolas Cruz making deadly threats, within the last 6 months.

I believe it was a year or so ago that I wrote a piece about known, felons who are also gang members living in Chicago, who were legally waltzing into gun shops and purchasing guns, so it’s not like the FBI isn’t failing all over the board here.

Right?

Before everyone answers yes, let us take a step back and look at the black and white here.

Sure we expect the FBI to kick in a mans door and take his weapons when we want it, not necessarily when it actually needs to happen.

This is a discussion I have a lot with my dad, who if you’ll recall from past articles does not feel that it is a doctors business as to whether or not he owns a gun, he also does not feel that the government should be allowed to decide who owns guns and who doesn’t.

Please, entertain me and wrap your head around that for a second. How many gun rights activists can’t seem to have the brains enough to fathom that yet they are pro-gun ownership?

It’s clearly time for a reality check and it is time that when we tell the government that we expect them to keep guns out of the hands of dangerous individuals that we finally allow for them to kick in a mans door and take said legally purchased weapons when that individual shows clear signs of instability.

I make no apologies here, we scream and cry for justice and protection yet we are the biggest hypocrites of all when it comes to actually enabling the government and all of it’s agencies in particular law enforcement at all levels to actually prevent mass shootings by restricting the ability to do so behind gun rights.

CIA Manages to Let Classified Records Slip Out The Door

 

CIA-2-CrimeShop.jpg

 

Jerry Chun Shing Lee Arrested for Keeping Classified Records

Once again one of America’s spy agencies has managed to lose classified records.

I am not sure if I should be surprised or just laugh at this juncture, these agencies just cannot seem to keep classified information from slipping right out of the front door.

CIA-CLASSIFIED-DOCUMENTS-crimeshop

After Jerry left the CIA in 2012, he more or less kept classified intel that should not have left with him.

FBI-Search-Warrant-CrimeShop

The FBI had obtained a warrant for ‘unknown’ (but a little bird told me it was because Jerry, was suspected of compromising Chinese Informants) reasons and searched his luggage at a hotel room after Jerry had flown with his family from Hong Kong to Northern Virginia.

Upon the search that was conducted for again, ‘unknown’  reasons the FBI found a couple of handwritten notes that may have contained the names and numbers of covert CIA employees and the locations of covert facilities.

CIA-Top-Secret-CrimeShop

Of course after the CIA looked into the situation and discovered that in fact, Jerry had intel that was both secret and top secret in nature.

Oddly, Jerry had been interviewed on 5 separate occasions prior to his arrest by the FBI and failed during each and every interview to disclose that he had these handwritten books.

Top-Secret-CIA-CrimeShop

Jerry was a case officer for the CIA from 1994-2007 where he was trained in surveillance detection, recruiting, handling assets, and the handling of classified information (which he learned well considering his arrest), and he worked at several overseas offices.

Jerry has not been charged with espionage, he has only been charged with illegal retention of documents.

Again, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether or not Jerry had any intention of using the information in order to turn a profit regardless of the fact that he is suspected of compromising informants, he has not been proven guilty yet.
Then Again, maybe he did because perhaps his retirement plan was a little too lean for his comfort level.

Ohio Hacker Charged with Child Pornography

MacOS Malware Used for Child Porn, Computer Fraud and Wiretapping

phillip-durachinsky-CrimeShop

28 year old Phillip Durachinsky has been accused of and charged with computer fraud, wiretapping and child pornography after authorities learned the man had hacked cameras and microphones to both spy on and recorded things that he should not have.

computerhacking_crimeshop

Aside from spying on both people and companies, Phillip was so brazen that he hacked into schools and a U.S. Department of Energy subsidiary and he even spied on a police department.

Where the story takes on a pretty sick twist is where Phillip recorded individuals engaging in sex, some which where underage individuals.

According to court documents, Phillip often made it a habit of recording those that he spied on, collecting thousands and thousands of images, as well as being able to access tax, medical and banking records of the unlucky individuals and organizations that he spied on from 2003-2017.

Yes, you read that right, 14 years in total.

macos-crimehop

Phillip used FruitFly, a specific malware that is used to target Mac’s, a spyware used to surveille person through mac’s, more specifically watching them through their webcam or camera.

Phillip had been installing the malware onto PC’s for years and once on an individual’s PC, the malware was able to reach out and make contact with others, like the PC’s of businesses, schools, a police department and of course a subsidiary of the U.S. Department of Energy.

Once running, FruitFly was able to steal files, passwords, turned on cameras and microphones.

In some cases, FruitFly would alert Phillip if and when an individual computer were being used to search for porn by a victim.

Court documents indicate that thousands of computers had been infected and comprised and while watching and listening to those that he spied on, this brilliant man took notes, yes he took the time to take down notes with regards to what he heard or saw. 

MacBook-Malware-FruitFly-crimeshop

I know what you are thinking, FruitFly should only be able to work on MacOS right?

Phillip, it seems was able to develop a Windows version which explains how so many PC’s were infected in the end.

As to the child porn charges, while the DOJ has not released much with regards to those charges, it appears that from Oct, 2011 – Jan 2017 Phillip recorded underage teens having sex, recordings he knew he could either share or sell, recordings he knew would be shared.

So how did the DOJ finally catch up with Phillip?

In January of last year, Phillip was accused of hacking into computers at Case Western Reserve University. Upon investigating the complaint against Phillip, the FBI had discovered that the computers had in fact been infected for several years.

This serves as a great way to open the door to some dialogue.  

It doesn’t matter what OS you might be on, just because you think you are safe, you may not be.

We can always count on one individual at the very least, who will be able to develop malware or some way so as to infect whatever OS they desire.

Developers may want to get better at patching things up, closing back-doors, creating devices and software that are smart enough to block infected software, ads and files, or at the very least, ensuring that we cannot be hacked as easily as we currently are.

Marcus Hutchins – Discovers Killswitch for WannaCry, Gets Arrested by the FBI

Surfer Who Saved World From WannaCry Attack Prepares For Next Wave

WannaCry Hero Who Stopped the Global Cyber Attack – Arrested?

Marcus Hutchins who was responsible for stopping WannaCry from its global cyber attack, was found to be a wanted individual and by wanted I mean by the FBI of course.

petya-wannacry-goldeneye-ransomware-Crime-Shop

Marcus who is 23, hailed as a hero for saving the NHS from cyber criminals, was at a hacking conference in Las Vegas when he was arrested by the FBI.

In an indictment that was released by the US Department of Justice it was revealed that dear old Marcus faces at least 6 counts of helping to create, spread and maintain the banking Trojan Kronos between 2014 and 2015.

The banking Trojan Kronos was spread through emails that contained malicious attachments which victims would click on and install onto the user’s computer, once installed it allowed thieves to steal money using credentials such as internet banking passwords.

In the 8 page indictment that was filed in Wisconsin, a U.S. Attorney accuses Marcus of creating the app and at least one unnamed other person of conspiring to sell the app on AlphaBay, an underground website that was seized by law enforcement in early July.

That “other” person? Well they have yet to be named.

The indictment also happens to charge Marcus and the mystery co-defendant with using a device to intercept communications in violation of the Wiretap Act.

It does not however, specify the nature of the device, but recent court cases suggest utilizing such a “device” can also refer to software and apps.

After having discovered the “killswitch” for WannaCry Marcus did attempt to keep a low profile and stay out of the media spotlight and as it turns out, for good reason.

And as for the mystery co-defendant? Well everyone is wondering why the FBI has made the decision to redact that individual’s name from the indictment, the only real good reason they would have were if that individual were actually cooperating with them.

As for Marcus, well he should have stayed out of the whole WannaCry situation but even sometimes cybercriminals are super competitive and perhaps he wanted to one up those behind WannaCry.

Of course, being that he may have been behind the banking Trojan Kronos, his playing around and actually finding the killswitch to WannaCry would cause concern for the FBI, while he may have released the info about discovering the killswtich, he might have found something else that, for him would have been more of a benefit to aid in committing future cybercrimes.

U.S. Justice Department Appoints Special Counsel

Rober Muller investigation-crimeshop-russia

To oversee Probe into Trump Associates and Russian Officials

In a shocking twist of fate for Trump, Robert S. Mueller III has agreed to take over the investigation as special counsel.

JS-MUELLER-crimeshop

For those of you who don’t know who Robert is, Robert served as the FBI director from 2001 to 2013, the move comes from overwhelming pressure after Trump promptly fired James Comey to investigate, independently the Trump/Russia connection.

Why Trump and his dream team should be afraid?

Robert has a pretty good track record of getting to the bottom of and then handling things quite sufficiently. In fact, very sufficiently.  

Of course we are all anticipating Trump’s rather disparaging tweets with regards to this move and/or the subsequent findings of Robert’s.

The worst news for Trump, he can’t fire Robert like he did James, that is the simplistic beauty of an an independent investigation.

I look forward to Robert’s findings and also the onslaught of spam emails coming from Robert’s former FBI, credentialed email address. Spammers loving using his credentials.

Just a side note –

A very, very special shout out to the two last night that sent me messages (from IP’s 46.161.14.99 and 5.188.211.170, for fuck’s sake guys, put a little more effort into it).

If you are trying to hack someone and email them hoping, that they will respond or follow a link, so that you can hack them, try harder next time and by try harder I mean learning how to spell would do wonders for your hacking campaign.

Just off the top, simple spelling skills would really help, as well as learning time zones.

If you are trying to market your next hacking campaign pay attention to ‘time zone differences’

For instance, if you are sending a 10am spam email to someone in America, you might want to double check the time zone that selected target is in.

But in the short time if you want to hack me and you really do, contact the FBI, they have already been given granted access to anything of mine via this blog. 

Or ask the NSA, I am sure they could more easily assist you with your request for they already have access to everything.

Amber Alert – Tad Cummins & Elizabeth Thomas

tadcummins-elizabeth-thomas-crimeshop.jpg


Where are they?

Sparking a nationwide Amber Alert, when Tad Cummins allegedly kidnapped Elizabeth Thomas on March 13, 2017 her family was in both shock and horror. 

A relationship that seemingly shocked school officials, but shouldn’t have. The two were caught kissing in January of this year by another student, the school completely mishandled the situation and allowed it to end up spiraling out of control right to where it is today.

Authorities have no idea where the two are.

Tad has priors in terms of grooming young girls, much like a true predator he befriends young girls who are emotionally broken, vulnerable and confused so that he might be able to capitalize on the friendship.

Prior to the March 13th alleged kidnapping of Elizabeth according to news reports, a former female student describes how Tad befriended her in a similar fashion. That relationship never went anywhere however, it clearly shows given her account of her emotional state at the time, Tad’s ability to get into the heads of the young and vulnerable.

Regardless, unlike authorities I do not believe that Tad kidnapped Elizabeth, in all likelihood she went with him willingly, initially.

How long that will last depends solely on where Elizabeth is mentally.

A family member reportedly stated that on the day of the disappearance, Elizabeth told them that she would be home by dinner and if she isn’t home by 6pm to call the police. Yet, police found evidence of some type of romantic relationship between the two in messages they sent to one another.

Tad on the other hand, is not going to give up unless he is backed into a corner.

Before the fateful day the two vanished Tad was searching the internet for some rather usual things.

One thing he looked at happened to be the legalities of marriage to teens and in another search, whether or not authorities could somehow track the vehicle he is or was driving or rather intended on driving.

Tad deliberately planned this.

Some authorities believe the two are or were headed to Mexico, I am not so sure of that. Tad would not have wanted to go to Mexico but rather someplace secluded, given his internet search history, I do not believe he intended on leaving the US.

Tad sought out a place where his relationship with Elizabeth would not be frowned upon and where they could hide from the prying eyes of the general public, namely law enforcement.

Tad is very predictable to the trained eye though, he should not be that difficult to track down.

And to date, they have been able to evade law enforcement and travel throughout the US.

Tad Cummins-Crimeshop.jpg

For Tad its about finding a safe haven where he can do as he wishes and where his relationship will be acceptable and a lot less about running.

James Comey – breaking all the rules by having a Twitter account?

fbi-director-james-comey-crimeshop
Federal Bureau of Investigation – James Comey -Twitter

Earlier this week as I was enjoying my time off I noted a slew of stories about a reporter who claims to have uncovered the FBI Director James Comey’s Twitter account.

After the initial announcement hit, story after story followed in what would appear as shock and awe over the fact that James even has a Twitter account.

I sat back stumped over the ordeal in shock myself but not because James has any social media account, I was more shocked that the media played it up so much. I’ve often pointed out that those in law enforcement, are after all, human beings pretty much like the rest of us so what is the big deal over James having a Twitter account or any other form of social media?

The big deal is smoke and mirrors, it must have been a slower than usual news week. He isn’t breaking any rules, up to and including rules that have to do with national security. He maintains social media accounts to keep in touch with family and loved ones.

Big deal, so he is like the majority of the world in that respect.

So as the story goes at a dinner James made an off the cusp remark that he does in fact maintain secret social media accounts and as luck would have it, one of those accounts happens to have 9 followers that are relatives of his.

While some have referred to it as being great sleuthing, I see it more as cyber stalking, Gizmodo’s Ashley Feinberg took it upon herself to unmask and reveal to the world Director James Comey’s twitter account or rather what she thinks is his twitter account. And as further luck would have it, she did in fact reveal his Twitter name.

The picture she painted about how she was able to find the account is reminiscent of what stalkers in the past have done to find my hidden accounts on social media.

I’ll refrain from publishing the name of the said account, I mean after all it could very well be his personal account, what gets me is that the media seems to feel that it is okay to cyber stalk the Director of the FBI and label it “sleuthing.”

By all accounts it is a form of stalking and very much in poor taste. It could be labeled criminal because for no other reason it is ripe with malicious intent.

To humiliate, to prove a point to the intended victim, to reveal personal information about the victim without the consent of the victim, either way that you look at it, it was a move based on some very poor judgement and shows how completely low the media will go just to prove a point in a rather ugly way.

It is a disgusting attempt at reporting on something that is not even news worthy.

Way to go to Gizmodo’s Ashley Feinberg.Cristal M Clark

FBI does take those threats via Whisper seriously

fbi-crimeshop

Turns out Whisper will hand over user info to law enforcement 

The question of the day is, do anonymous messaging apps let users truly remain anonymous? Turns out the answer to that question happens to be no.

whisper-app-crimeshop

A lot of news is hitting the wire today about one Mr. Garrett Grimsley of Cary, North Carolina who just so happened to use the so-called anonymous messaging app Whisper to make a credible threat.

On February 19, 2017 Garrett thought it would be a good idea to head to Whisper and post “Salam, some of you are alright, don’t go to Cary tomorrow.”

Another user saw the post in a public forum and decided to respond, you know to start up a chat to see where things might lead; “Why what’s happening in Cary tomorrow?”

To which our lovely friend Garrett responded; “Aslam alaikum brother. For too long the kuffar have spit in our faces and trampled our rights. This cannot continue. I cannot speak of anything. It will be only the beginning, insha’Allah.”

So as you can guess, the other user who engaged Garrett felt the need to promptly report him, rightfully so.

I am not sure which part of what Garrett did was more idiotic the fact that he posted what seemed like a threat in a public forum or the fact that he utilized Whisper to do it.

Countless stories about Whisper tracking user data goes all the way back to 2014 and to top that off with some whipped cream and a cherry, the company does have a clear policy any user can read up on in that, they will comply with requests from law enforcement for user data.

Although, the very same policy states that it does not retain user info such as real name or address and other personal info it does retain that one little thing people forget about…an IP address which law enforcement is really good at utilizing in an effort to find someone’s physical address.

The moral of the story here is that, if you say it online and it appears to be a threat, don’t be shocked when the FBI kicks in your front door and raids your home.

FBI will not longer accept FOIA requests beginning 3/1

fbi-crimeshop

Federal Bureau of Investigation – Freedom of Information Act

I recently read an article about the FBI’s decision to change up requests that are sent under the Freedom of Information Act. They are changing the way information can be obtained from them from email to a form fill starting 3/1/17.

Part of the form is that you now must include things like a physical address. That doesn’t shock me at all, what shocked me was the response to that. Some are in a bit of a tizzy over it which I cannot for some reason understand.

foia-crimeshop

FOIA gives the the right to obtain information from the Federal Government but it never said anywhere that I can or should remain anonymous. Some are actually asserting that because of the new reform it will make it harder or more difficult for people to request information from the FBI?!?!?!

I am sorry but I really think that argument needs validation because it is really bloody pathetic. If anyone wants information from the FBI under the FOIA they should let the FBI know who they are and where they are.

I just fail to see the argument altogether on this one. If you want transparency, so should you too, be just as transparent.

Would it not be the pot calling the kettle black if the FBI under the same token refrained from providing information because whomever was asking was hiding behind an email address and refused to honestly tell them who they are, where they can be found?

I mean the FBI freely publishes all of it’s office addresses online for everyone to see and visit if we felt the need. So if you want something from them why not include an address so they too can visit you?

Besides, businesses in the private industry have been doing this for years. They want more than just an email address from people who contact them.

So why is that we don’t seem to have a problem with handing information over to a business someone we know next nothing about?

You do not have to answer that, it was completely rhetorical.

The point is, the FBI has a right to know who is requesting information from them just as much as we have a right to know what they have in certain cases.

No one has a right to hide behind an email address.

I am for this change as long as they don’t give anything to NSA who has a habit of letting anything just walk out its front door via contracted employees.
