Hacking, iPhones, Breaking WIFI Security & Eavesdropping

By: Cristal M Clark

Spy technology entrepreneurs have found a goldmine of opportunity, they are offering their services up to Governments for a fee, of course.

Verint which is a billion-dollar company offers up global interception and surveillance.

NSO Group-Crimeshop

The rather infamous NSO Group whose founders by the way are from Israel, a nation I lecture a lot about, quiet, low key but tech wise, front runners.  Now they have been renamed Q Cyber Technologies, sells hacking tools to governments on every continent with little apparent oversight and targets ranging from drug cartels and terrorists to journalists and human rights activists.

While others Hack into iPhones, break WIFI security, and even do a little eavesdropping on conversations and data that is chosen by governments willing to pay a premium for access to everything connected to the internet.

You might be wondering where in the hell this could be legal right?

As it turns out, the Middle East is the perfect spot for the job at hand because the The Middle East, in case you did not know actually does have connections to well, pretty much everywhere.

To give you an idea with regards to just how lucrative cyber spying is:

The hacking industry has literally exploded in recent years and continues to do so, growing by leaps and bounds. The last few years have been good for the “interception” if you will, industry, the latest news of cyber warfare has drastically raised awareness, which is great right? But, it by default acts an advertisement.  

That industry by the how is raking in over $3 billion a year if not every 6 months.. Now who has that sort of funding to spend?

Thursday, NSO Group was sold for $1 billion from the American private equity firm Francisco Partners,  the company’s founders Shalev Hulio and Omri Lavie who originally owned it (it’s been sold before), along with European private equity firm Novalpina Capital.

The new deal is being compared to the Star Alliance, which was a partnership between 27 airline companies which allowed each company to have global reach through the alliance (sort of like a cartel), according to Tal Dilian, who just so happens to be one of the founding members of the Intellexa alliance.

Most of these guys are from Israel, Google it, I’ve been sounding the alarm on this since 2014.

Intellexa hopes to bring offerings that will provide the world’s governments increased ability to target anyone that they so choose.

Intellexa’s marketing says that is has the  ability to intercept 2G, 3G, 4G and wifi communications. The companies within the alliance provide both remote stationery and close-proximity mobile systems ranging from vehicles to backpacks or specially equipped drones and helicopters.

Yes, well will those drones as they spy on me be bringing me a beloved quad shot americano?

“Intellexa will provide law enforcement and intelligence agencies with an end-to-end intelligence solution, including a premium field intelligence collection platform as well as robust remote collection and analysis systems.”

the Intellexa partnership by the way is made up of  5 non-public partners and Nexa Technologies, WiSpear, and Cytrox.

WiSpear is and old one but a good one, its  a wifi interception firm founded by Dilian who previously worked on Circles, (hope you are keeping up here, they are all the same firms and people, they just sleep in the same beds and marry a new entity every now and again, after a divorce from the last), a telecom-interception firm that was acquired by NSO Group. WiSpear recently acquired Cytrox, a European firm specializing in developing exploits that can break into devices used by a target.

The alliance also includes Nexa Technologies, a French firm previously known as Amesys.

Intellexa will be first announced at IDEX, a “military industry” conference in Abu Dhabi an event which is well known for, well buying and selling “cutting-edge” hacking tools. Of course the Persian Gulf just so happens to be the world’s hotbed for the hacking market.

Now, some might be upset that a government entity might be spying on them, I would be more concerned over the fact that these professional spy technology firms really do put users at risk, they lack any and all global oversight and they usually sell their malware to rulers of nations that are less than on the up and up and dictators of same.

But even more scary is that countries and other more reputable governments are starting to stop and take a hard look at these spy tech groups that operate in some pretty questionable ways and they are considering utilizing their services.

Wars are moving off of the streets, so Donald Trump can argue his wall appropriations all day to absolutely no avail. The very second you stop your focus on the real issue at hand is the very second you will lose.

And that, the US is already doing, quite well actually, by declaring a National Emergency for a wall, well and I am simply glancing in the direction of Robert Mueller, your focusing on some issues that are more in the past when you should have been focusing on issues more forward from the election.

The US is weak in terms of cyberwarfare by design, not by accident. It’s all in black and white, in the news, social media, if anyone had bothered themselves with paying attention after all, it subtly and gently slipped right past everyone.

Donald Trump Did Actually Bump Through The House.

Cristal M Clark

He has turned into a rather sloven robust pig since hitting office yes?

fat-ass-trump-crimeshop

Twas the night before Christmas and not a creature in the world stirred save for Donald Trumps Twitter finger.

The man who brings us at the very forefront of war.

Russia

China

North Korea

Iran

America

The Racists, the Intolerant, disgusting low life. pigs that we live amongst.  

impeach-trump-cimeshop

He is crying out because he is alone this Christmas Eve, “I’m Alone Because  of The Democrats

“They” Will not give me my way.

The cries of  a petulant 2 year old. 

The Racists, the Intolerant, disgusting low life. pigs that we live amongst.  

The Dems, Did not bow to my will, so know I will have a tantrum, and obtain my way by holding paychecks and people hostage.

You are alone Donald because, of you.

We see what you have done.

We Americans, do not care for the fact that hundreds that if you were to sit down and actually do the math 800,000, is a drop in bucket once you shut the border down.  

The American People actually do not care about Federal Workers out of work.

idiot-trump-crimeshop

As polls do show.  

Perhaps we have all spent too much time waiting on hold for an overstaffed, undereducated, federal worker, to answer the phone.

Federal workers out of work?

Put the feds and locals on furlow, no one cares regardless of what the media plays it out to be. The polls do not lie.  

Close a national park?

We can bust our way into them by hiking around the closed gates, not a soul needs a gate to be manned.

Yes, Dear Donald

trumps - wall- crimeshp

Build a wall around that.  

Not a big deal. At-All.

By the way as you fight for your wall, might you explain the man who the Saudis Got out of Oregon, and the United States, the man who was involved in a hit an run, the Saudi who mowed down a 15 year old, on US soil,  Killed, rather Murdered someone, on US Soil and Fled THE US with the aid of Trump and his Son?

Would Trump break that down for me?

saudia-arabia-prince

In its every essence?

The man killed a 15 year old.

Then he was allowed to leave the US, Under Donald Trumps Watch.

Abdulhrahman Sameer Nohrah aged 21 fled america after the hit and run on an illegal passport so with all do respect Donald J Trump, you can go go piddle off on in the corner.

-saudi-arabia-crimeshop

Trump’s Fanatical Friends are already here, up to including those that want to kill us.

2015 US Open, Day 9 - Melania Trump

As he closes our border he allows them in through or airports, under diplomatic diplomacy, the exchange student program.

An old mans paranoia, comes back to haunt and harm all of us.

At least Trump is having a Happy Christmas living in his delusional fantasy of being a great worldly leader.

Saudi Arabia Lobbied Trump During Campaign?

Trump – Saudi Love Affair

You know you do have to hand it to Donald Trump for all of his bullshit, the guy is still sitting in the White House and instead of holding the title of “janitor” he is still the president of the United States.

crushing-dumbness-of-donald-trump-crimeshop

Nothing is off the table with Trump at the helm it seems, collusion, sleeping with a hooker, I mean, who wouldn’t right, but now it’s starting to come to light that not even bribing the president in order to get favors also fair game.

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

Why didn’t any of the rest of us think of this, we could have bribed him right out of the White House.  

The WaPo released a report in reference to Saudi Arabia bribing Donald Trump using and this is absolutely disgusting, US War Veterans.

That is pretty below the belt in all honesty.

-saudi-arabia-crimeshop

According to the report the Saudi Arabian government funded a group of lobbyists who booked around an astonishing – 500 nights at the Trump International Hotel in Washington.

Those rooms, they were filled with unsuspecting U.S. veterans, in what is being described as an alleged scheme to send Saudi money into the Trump Organization, which began in late 2016.

The Story goes a lot like this:

“Saudi-funded lobbyists began offering free trips to D.C. to military veterans, under the guise of having them protest the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA), a new law, backed by the families of Sept. 11 victims, [that] opened the door to costly litigation alleging that the Saudi government bore some blame for the attacks. (The veterans were told the law could cause other countries to retaliate, and might lead to vets being prosecuted overseas for actions their units had taken while at war.)”

Rumor has it however, that those who were sent to D.C. didn’t really protest much, they didn’t even know why in the hell they were going, which left one simple question, if no one was really protesting why were the veterans really being sent to Trump’s D.C. hotel?

donald-trump-bribed

The obvious and more than abundantly clear reason of course, to bribe one Donald J Trump, newly crowned President of the United States.

bribing-trump

Trump is clearly in pretty deep with things, yet, he still hasn’t fully understood the extent of favors he owes certain world leaders, those that got him to where he is, those who lined his pocketbook.

idiot-trump-crimeshop

The effort to buy America, that goes pretty deep worldwide, and more than just the few we have read about were in on that.

Including those that outwardly do take the hard-line with Trump and his administration.

Too inept to truly understand that he sold himself out while at same time, selling out the United States.

These leaders who bought him the US Presidency, should Trump not play well with them, will in fact ensure that he loses his coveted seat at the big kids table.

Think Your iPhone is Safe From Malware – Think Again!

iOS-Malware-Crimeshop

Malware Able to Spy on iPhone User Data

For those of us with iPhones, it goes without saying that we love iOS, we pay a lot of money for the added security that Apple offers, plain and simple.

tim-cook-apple-crimeshop

But, if you think iOS is completely safe from malware, as I have said before, you are mistaken.

kaspersky-labs-moscow-crimeshop

Kaspersky Lab’s has in fact, found proof that a small spyware government contractor happens to be selling iOS malware.

And that malware, well it actually works in the iOS environment.

Negg, the government contractor has developed a “custom iOS malware that allows GPS tracking and performs audio surveillance activity.”

Kaspersky Lab researcher Alexey Firsh told Motherboard:

“We have uncovered an iOS implant, we assume that at the moment of discovery it was in a development stage and was not fully adapted to infect potential victims.”

malware-targets-apple-ios-crimeshop

Apple has been notorious for incredibly secure devices and for locking down it’s devices making them difficult to jailbreak, which make them less susceptible for malware to be installed on them.

Of course for those that are skilled in the fine art of developing malware and who like a challenge, they have always been willing to find ways around Apple’s security for a very high price.

DonaldThrowingMoney-crimeshop

Companies will pay around $3 million for software that jailbreaks and hacks iPhone and sadly researchers simply do not  report bugs to Apple because others pay better than Apple does.

To make matters worse, several groups specialize in the creation of iOS malware, specifically for the purpose of jailbreaking a device so that the malware can be downloaded on it.

Even worse than that?

-saudi-arabia-crimeshop

Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported that Saudi Arabia paid $55 million to purchase iPhone malware made by the NSO Group.

Governments worldwide are willing to shell out some pretty big cash just for the privilege of being able to hack into an iOS device.

Take a step back and let that sink in iOS lovers. .

Apple has made great strides to protect its users data, by the same token Apple has also alienated themselves from the rest of the world.

While at the very same time, painting a very large target on its own back.

And when Apple’s customers really fully realize what this means, it might change the way Apple’s stocks look, in the long term.

When one feels that it is above all of the rest and puts itself on a pedestal, it runs the very high and probable risk of becoming public enemy number one, not to mention being knocked right off of that pedestal.

Man Arrested for having Breakfast with Woman?

Flag_of_Saudi_Arabia-Crimeshop

Saudi Arabia

 

Well this is certainly a rather bit old school, a man in Saudi Arabia has been arrested simply for having breakfast with a woman.

man-arrested-saudi-arabia-crimeshop.jpg

The Egyptian man who had been having breakfast in Saudi Arabia was promptly arrested after a video of him having breakfast with a woman went viral on Twitter.

In the video, the man with an Egyptian dialect eats breakfast beside a woman wearing a full-face veil, who it is assumed is Saudi.

The man and woman briefly joke about eating their breakfast together, with nobody else invited.

But the point which has caused the most consternation comes at the end of the video, when the woman appears to feed the man.

The law in Saudi Arabia, reads that in workplaces or restaurants, families and single men have to sit in different areas and single women are never to sit alongside single men.

In fact, in Saudi Arabia, women are not allowed to do much outside of the home unless they are accompanied by a male guardian, a husband, father, brother etc.

At any rate, the gentleman who was having breakfast with the woman was arrested by the Saudi Ministry of Labour and Social Development and was accused of committing multiple violations and taking up a post which is exclusively for Saudis.

The Arabic #anEgyptianhavingbreakfastwithaSaudi has been used over 113,000 times on Twitter, where it has become the center of a cultural divide.
