WIKILEAKS’ ‘DARK MATTER’ DUMP SHOWS CIA’S IPHONE, MACBOOK HACKS

CIA documents published by WikiLeaks Thursday reveal hacks used by the agency against Apple cellphones and computers.

Dubbed “Dark Matter,” the documents, a new addition to WikiLeaks’ ongoing “Vault 7” dump, detail hacks developed for iPhones and MacBooks as far back as 2008.

“These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware,” a WikiLeaks press release says.

By targeting the firmware, CIA hackers can remain in control of an infected device even if the target wipes the data and re-installs the operating system.


One such tool, known as “Sonic Screwdriver,” is, according to the CIA, a “mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting…”

By providing a target with a compromised peripheral device such as an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter, which stores “Sonic Screwdriver” in its firmware, the CIA can gain persistence “even when a firmware password is enabled” on the target computer.

A 2008 document discussing an attack on iPhones, called “NightSkies,” reveals a malicious implant that would be physically installed on a new device. One method of deploying the hack could potentially involve intercepting an iPhone before it reaches a target.

“The tool operates in the background providing upload, download and execution capability on the device,” the document states. “NS is installed via physical access to the device and will wait for user activity before beaconing.”…

Benjamin Fulford 3-12-17 interview with Taj & Nyssa, on “The Divine Truth, on Revolution Radio” (includes extensive information about (and ‘de-fear-porning’ of) Fukushima event) | Kauilapele’s Blog

Well, I’m listening to this at the moment, and found the first ~15 minutes of the show were very unveiling about Fukushima. Ben says that much of the information put out about high radiation levels around, and emanating from, Fukushima, are not correct (aka, fear porn created to promote, yes, fear). I’ve not spoken to Yumi and Gen (Fukushima Kids) about this, but guaranteed this is something that the cabal would do.

The interviewers I felt asked some very pertinent questions (but do not expect any flash of emotional output from them… they are quite non-flashy).

As many know, the full report will appear here first thing tomorrow at 12:01 AM HST, 3-16-17.

Wikileaks Dismantles False BuzzFeed Article in One Tweet | Stillness in the Storm

Tuesday, March 14, 2017


(Jack BurnsLast week, Wikileaks dumped what seems to be authentic CIA documents which revealed, among other things, that the spy agency has a way of hacking into smart TV’s in order to spy on targeted persons of interest. The data dump, known as the Vault 7 release, also showed the CIA has the ability to hack into Apple phones as well. While the conjugation of the verb is apparently incorrect, when Buzzfeed News recently posted a tweet with an attached story which stated Apple had patched its IOS vulnerabilities described in Vault 7, Wikileaks responded with a tweet of its own.

In a statement, Apple said that the bugs mentioned in the WikiLeaks dump of known vulnerabilities to iOS products have been fixed.

buzzfeed.com

The agency, committed to forcing governments to operate with transparency, called Buzzfeed “fakenews” and stated Apple had not been able to patch those weaknesses in its operating system.

In Buzzfeed’s own article Apple states: “…our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS…” — not all the issues, as Buzzfeed implied.

At one point, the FBI admitted it had not developed the capability to get into the Apple IOS. Readers may recall James Comey had actually petitioned Congress to force Apple to cooperate with the FBI and help the investigative bureau unlock one of the San Bernardino terrorist’s iPhones. Then, abruptly, Comey withdrew his request to mandate Apple to cooperate. As a result, those who were following the story began to speculate the FBI had found another way to get inside the phone…

Blockbuster: Wikileaks Suppressed, Mossad ran 9/11 Arab “hijacker” terrorist operation – Prepare for Change

 

… by Wayne Madsen. British intelligence reported in February 2002 that the Israeli Mossad ran the Arab hijacker cells that were later blamed by the U.S. government’s 9/11 Commission for carrying out the aerial attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. WMR has received details of the British intelligence report which was suppressed by the government of then-Prime Minister Tony Blair.

A Mossad unit consisting of six Egyptian- and Yemeni-born Jews infiltrated “Al Qaeda” cells in Hamburg (the Atta-Mamoun Darkanzali cell), south Florida, and Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates in the months before 9/11. The Mossad not only infiltrated cells but began to run them and give them specific orders that would eventually culminate in their being on board four regularly-scheduled flights originating in Boston, Washington Dulles, and
Newark, New Jersey on 9/11.

The Mossad infiltration team comprised six Israelis, comprising two cells of three agents, who all received special training at a Mossad base in the Negev Desert in their future control and handling of the “Al Qaeda” cells. One Mossad cell traveled to Amsterdam where they submitted to the operational control of the Mossad’s Europe Station, which operates from the El Al complex at Schiphol International Airport. The three-man Mossad unit then traveled to Hamburg where it made contact with Mohammed Atta, who believed they were sent by Osama Bin Laden. In fact, they were sent by Ephraim Halevy, the chief of Mossad.

The second three-man Mossad team flew to New York and then to southern Florida where they began to direct the “Al Qaeda” cells operating from Hollywood, Miami, Vero Beach, Delray Beach, and West Palm Beach. Israeli “art students,” already under investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration for casing the offices and homes of federal law enforcement officers, had been living among and conducting surveillance of the activities, including flight school training, of the future Arab “hijacker” cells, particularly in Hollywood and Vero Beach…

Former CIA Director: WikiLeaks Release Was An Inside Job – Your News Wire

Former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell claims that rogue agents working for the Deep State leaked information about CIA hacking and surveillance to WikiLeaks. 

According to Morell, thousands of documents released as part of WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 release this week could only have been obtained by an insider working for the agency.

Vault 7 is the largest ever batch of top-secret documents outlining how the CIA routinely hack smartphones, social media messaging apps and television sets in order to spy on the American public.

Mediaite.com reports:

Morell appeared on CBS This Morning, where he was asked about how the CIA’s surveillance methods got leaked out, and whether it would lead to problematic consequences…

Most Consequential Moment In US Policy Since 2003 Invasion Of Iraq Sets Stage For Armageddon

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

A very sobering Ministry of Defense (MoD) report circulating in the Kremlin today is warning that the United States debut this past week into the Syrian war alongside Russia as the “Sheriff of Manbij is the most consequential moment in American policy since the 2003 illegal invasion of Iraq, and could very well be a prelude to the ancient Biblical prophecy of Armageddon—that is written will be the climax of history when the nations of the world would be gathered together ‘into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon”, and the judgment on them would herald the setting up of the Kingdom of God and end human rule on Earth. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

 

 

According to this report, on 16 February, in Baku, Azerbaijan, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Russia, General Valery Gerasimov, met with his American counterpart General Joseph Dunford, who is the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to inaugurate a “convergence of military interests” in the defeating of Islamic radical terrorists in Syria—and that for the first time in this conflict, showed that US generals are now in full control of American policy in Syria

Russia: CIA Hacking Leaks Shows World In Great Danger – Your News Wire

 

Russia has said that US security services must provide a full response to WikiLeaks’ accusations regarding hacking by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA).

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Friday that US spy agencies must be held fully accountable following the recent revelations about the CIA’s hacking techniques, adding that if found to be true the acts of espionage by Washington represent “a great” danger to the world.

“If this information is confirmed, it would be desirable for the US security services to respond fully and adequately to the released documents with specific facts,” Zakharova told a briefing, adding “And if this information is confirmed, then this is a great danger to the world and international security”

On March 7, whistle-blowing website WikiLeaks published the first part of the Vault 7 series, which constituted thousands of documents from the CIA that purportedly revealed the agency’s hacking and spying secrets…
