    Going by the comments about the MSM, the coverage seems to vary a bit between countries, from what I've seen it's been alright here in Australia, which has surprised me.
    Yeah I can confirm this. It isn't as saturated with propaganda. What does everybody think about Julian Assange wanting to work with corporations he believes were victims of the CIA? (google, apple etc). While I have no hard evidence to support my opinion, I believe that the CEO's of these corporations worked with the CIA through political channels to arrange for CIA personnel to be 'planted' in their companies to create back doors and exploits. After all the connections I've seen through the pizzagate research, I don't believe for one second that the higher ups in some, if not all of these corporations are innocent victims of intelligence agencies.

    I share similar suspicions and voted the other way on WL's poll but I think they made the right decision, they're putting the security of the people first.

    It's also highlighting the true priorities of the US government, while they hunt for the 'mole' and condemn WL for putting the security of US citizens at risk without mentioning the security risk the CIA exposed the US citizens to, WL is offering to help clean up the CIA's mess.

    v 7.3.3 - Fix CIA Hacking Notepad++ Issue

    Quote The issue of a hijacked DLL concerns scilexer.dll (needed by Notepad++) on a compromised PC, which is replaced by a modified scilexer.dll built by the CIA. When Notepad++ is launched, the modified scilexer.dll is loaded instead of the original one.
    It doesn't mean that CIA is interested in your coding skill or in your sex message content in Notepad++, but rather it prevents raising any red flags while the DLL does data collection in the background.

    It's not a vulnerability/security issue in Notepad++, but for remedying this issue, from this release (v7.3.3) forward, notepad++.exe checks the certificate validation in scilexer.dll before loading it. If the certificate is missing or invalid, then it just won't be loaded, and Notepad++ will fail to launch.

    Checking the certificate of DLL makes it harder to hack. Note that once users’ PCs are compromised, the hackers can do anything on the PCs. This solution only prevents from Notepad++ loading a CIA homemade DLL. It doesn't prevent your original notepad++.exe from being replaced by modified notepad++.exe while the CIA is controlling your PC.

    Just like knowing the lock is useless for people who are willing to go into my house, I still shut the door and lock it every morning when I leave home. We are in a f**king corrupted world, unfortunately.

    Otherwise there are a lot of enhancements and bug-fixes which improve your Notepad++ experience. For all the detail change log, please check in the Download page.

    After CIA leak, Intel Security releases detection tool for EFI rootkits

    Quote Intel Security has released a tool that allows users to check if their computer's low-level system firmware has been modified and contains unauthorized code.

    The release comes after CIA documents leaked Tuesday revealed that the agency has developed EFI (Extensible Firmware Interface) rootkits for Apple's Macbooks. A rootkit is a malicious program that runs with high privileges -- typically in the kernel -- and hides the existence of other malicious components and activities.

    Quote The World Wide Web Foundation was established in 2009 by Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee to advance the open Web as a public good and a basic right. We’re building a future in which the Web empowers everyone, everywhere, to take part in building a fairer world.
    This statement from The World Wide Web Foundation -

    Quote Craig Fagan, Policy Director at the Web Foundation said:

    “Governments should be safeguarding the digital privacy and security of their citizens, but these alleged actions by the CIA do just the opposite. Weaponising everyday products such as TVs and smartphones – and failing to disclose vulnerabilities to manufacturers – is dangerous and short-sighted. It puts people around the world at risk of attack from hackers and repressive regimes, and this leak itself shows just how likely such tools are to spread beyond the organisation that developed them.

    “Going after devices circumvents the work that has been done to bolster encryption as a safeguard to our data privacy, particularly in the aftermath of past revelations about government surveillance.

    “If these new assertions prove true, we call on the Trump administration and other governments to stamp out such practices. The problem is widespread – in 2014 our Web Index research showed that 83% of countries had weak or non-existent safeguards to protect the privacy of online communications. Now is the time to address this – these issues will only magnify as more devices are connected and machine-to-machine communications become even more common.

    “The Web Foundation urges governments to take urgent steps to protect our digital privacy and security – including checks and balances to protect citizens from any overreach by security forces. We need political reform – if we try to rely on technical solutions alone, governments will simply stay one step ahead by learning how to crack the technologies. For their part, companies must step up to the plate too – by pressuring governments to make these reforms, while also investing more in device security and encrypting data to and from connected devices by default.”

    Considering Trump's commitment to giving the country back to the people and to their security, you'd think he'd more concerned about the CIA's activities, right? Perhaps he's been given no-go zones, in which case, I'm not too concerned about their threats to WikiLeaks.

    Jeff Rense & David John Oates - SHOCKING! Donald Trump Has Been Taken Over And Controlled?



    Published on 10 Mar 2017

    As many of you heard, President Trump's Reversals from his speech to Congress were surprisingly full
    of incongruence. From a man who has always been sparklingly congruent,this came as quite a shock
    to David Oates and most of the listening audience. Almost immediately after the program, David went
    to work further evaluating the reversals.

    Following a couple of breakthroughs that didn't seem to make sense, Oates discovered that virtually the
    entire set of reversals from the speech to Congress, WERE, in fact, completely logical and formed a
    shocking narrative from his subconscious mind. Don't miss this stunning peak inside the mind of Donald Trump.

    I just listened to this little interview that on the face of it seems harmless
    enough the usual about Brexit and Trump. Then Nigel gets asked whether
    he had a meeting with Julian Assange ? Nigel gets coy and you need to
    see his facial expressions as he says he keeps all his meetings private twice.

    Now why would Nigel meet Julian ? they have never been connected
    publically before as far as I know ? But a bit of 'conspiracy' going on
    here what if Nigel was acting as a proxy for someone in the Trump
    campaign or Trump himself as they dinned together recently...UHM !!
    The timing is spot on and Nigel's reaction in vid does not seem his usual

    Nigel Farage: 'Trump and I most vilified in West' - BBC News



    Published on 10 Mar 2017

    British politician Nigel Farage, who helped steer the UK towards the exit door of the
    European Union, says that he and Donald Trump have one thing in common. "We're
    probably the two most vilified people in the West." He adds that their bond was
    formed over the "shed-loads of abuse" they have each received.

    Quote This capability destroys the concept of evidence. The CIA can carry out a
    cyber attack or steal information and leave a fingerprint, so to speak, of the
    country or person it wants blamed. If the CIA can leave the fingerprint of an
    innocent party, we must assume the CIA can also put secret documents or child
    pornography on a person’s computer. Because of the CIA’s capability, henceforth
    we cannot know if any evidence presented in any trial against any defendant is real
    of faked.

    Published on 8 Mar 2017

    Many of you are now hearing about Vault 7, the latest Wikileaks, this time focusing
    on the CIA. Years ago, I indicated Michael Hastings was killed by the CIA. Even
    further back, I indicated Princes Diana was murdered by MI6. More recently, I
    indicated the so-called Russian hacks were internal within US government. US
    intelligence apparatus knew as I knew that Hillary couldn't beat Trump as I
    indicated she couldn't in August, 2015. Therefore, they started working on a
    scheme to bring Trump down. The so-called deep state never intended for or
    initially thought Trump could or would win. Lastly, I maintain what I said a week
    ago, it will be proven that Obama administration wiretapped Trump's campaign.
    The intelligence apparatus is still snooping on him, as president.

    an important read...

    Quote This capability destroys the concept of evidence. The CIA can carry out a cyber attack or steal information and leave a fingerprint, so to speak, of the country or person it wants blamed. If the CIA can leave the fingerprint of an innocent party, we must assume the CIA can also put secret documents or child pornography on a person’s computer. Because of the CIA’s capability, henceforth we cannot know if any evidence presented in any trial against any defendant is real of faked.
    Yes, in the movie, "Zero Days", Michael Hayden stated that if you can spy you can manipulate, all it takes is the will to do so. The CIA's virus creation rules show their ways of evading forensic analysis. SECRET/NOFORN document from Vault 7 -

    Statement from The Internet Engineering Task Force -

    Observations on the CIA Revelations

    Quote Recent news stories, and some IETF list discussion, have related to the release of (claimed) CIA materials relating to surveillance, hacking and information warfare. There has been quite a bit of discussion about the details of the various attacks contained in this leak, such as those relating to surveillance through smart TVs, or hacking vehicles. But are there more general conclusions that we can draw from release of this information?

    First, we think the content of leaks is not particularly surprising, especially given knowledge of other leaks in recent years, such as those from Edward Snowden. Malware is another tool in the same toolbox that is already known to include many other efforts that attempt to compromise security, such as pervasive surveillance.

    But the release of the current tranche of documents does seem to nicely support a number of things that we knew already and that are arguably more worthy of consideration:

    Security is not a single feature, rather the level of security one experiences needs to be thought of as an emergent property of the whole system. Communications security, for instance, is necessary but not sufficient. You also have to worry about the security of your devices, platforms, operating systems, and components. And the reliability of your communication partners.
    There is no such thing as privileged access for the good guys once there are more than a very small number of people involved. Sooner or later the privileged way to access information or hacks will either leak, be re-discovered independently by others, or be shared to parties that do not have your best interest in mind. In addition, systems built to take advantage of the privileged access will get broken and misused.
    All malware is just that, malicious software designed to disrupt or compromise other systems. And all will eventually leak. Secretly held knowledge of vulnerabilities makes us all less safe. The vulnerabilities will be exploited, perhaps traded or shared, instead of being reported and fixed. And when they leak out, they do damage to your friends as well as your supposed enemies.
    The security of our communications and applications matters a lot. Lives are at stake, not just your browsing history. Our entire societies run on top of our technical infrastructure, from hospitals and power plants to political processes and our economy. We cannot afford to compromise the security of these systems.
    As noted, we think these are matters that are already known, but reminding ourselves of the big picture now and then can be useful.

    From the IETF perspective we are of course committed to continuing our effort to provide the best possible technical tools for the Internet and the users. One technical observation that may be of use is that focusing on protecting data and not merely links or transport needs better support, make it easier to achieve in practise and at scale.

    Vault 7 - VL’s Pentagon Insider Reveals All in a Q & A
    Posted on March 10, 2017 by Angie

    http://victuruslibertas.com/2017/03/3154/

    We have been reaching out to our Pentagon insider and… FINALLY! We got a reply and he has agreed to answer some questions about Vault 7.

    Q. Vault 7 is the biggest story of the year, right?

    A. It gets bigger by orders of magnitude.

    Q. So what happens now?

    A. The story will go well beyond Implants, C2’s, and LP’s.

    Q. What does that mean?

    A. Listening posts, Malware. The danger is in how the CIA declassified “war code”. They also failed to keep different eggs in different baskets. This can be blamed on the agency not wanting to loop NSA in their plans. In essence, the CIA sought to create their own NSA.

    Q. What do you see happening next?

    A. Well, “Whack A Mole” takes on a whole new meaning!

    Q. Whoa…….

    A. The media steps in. Talking heads bemoan the “threat to national security”, blame Russia, avoid any mention of Uk involvement or Israel, which by the way, is furious beyond belief and scared ****less at the release of Vault 7… as are the Brits.

    Q. We keep hearing this. Why? The Brits and Israeli’s are allies, right?

    A. Define ally? The CIA, MI6 and Israeli secret service have been engaged in asymmetrical espionage on civilians, both domestically and abroad. They turned their tradecraft on the civi’s. Thats not going to play out well. There are bigger floods ahead, I fear.

    Q. Floods?

    A. Its a term used to denote large scale leaks or breeches in intelligence.

    Q. What type of things can we expect?

    A. Right now, the first dump concentrated on the CIA’s toolkit. The fear and loathing barometer tells me there is real concern the source code will get leaked, and even bigger concern the CIA’s past ‘activities” get exposed. If that happens, we will have a shockwave and an instant realignment of friends and foes.

    Q. Could you explain further?

    A. Lets say Wikileaks divulges that the CIA engages in domestic espionage in tandem with Mossad and MI6… Lets say CIA looks the other way while foreign nations are allowed to surveil American citizens… Lets say the people find out we created Isis with Israel, or the CIA really did neutralize Kennedy. Imagine how the citizens will view the CIA, Mossad and MI6. In truth, these entities are not the beast, but rather the claws of the beast. The combination of the CIA, Mossad and MI6 can be considered the greatest sponsors of terrorism in the world.

    Q. Wow. So you are saying Wikileaks may leak the secret history of the CIA?

    A. I am sure its coming. Why did they use a Kennedy quote referencing the CIA’s destruction as their passphrase? I am pretty certain they plan to expose just who was behind the Kennedy assassination.

    Q. If foreign nations were behind 9/11, will the people sit idly and forget about it and go back to their everyday lives?

    A. 2 years ago, I would have been confident they would have behaved as the lemmings the CIA expects them to behave like. But the foundation of trust is eroding. People no longer trust DC, MSM, Banks, our courts, etc.

    Q. Will Pedogate ever be fully exposed?

    A. Vault 7 will make certain that Pedogate is exposed. CIA and Mossad are behind much of it. Many in my close circle welcomes what Wikileaks has done. Most military servicemen serve honorably. Most law enforcement as well. We want the swamp drained. If Trump muzzles Pence, and guides this nation by his instincts, my guess is he will gut the CIA, modernize it, kick the MI6 and Mossad out of the tent and start re-evaluating who our friends are. Start with Saudi Arabia. Our relationship with the UK is very good from a military standpoint. That will not go away. But, we need to weaken the power and reach of our current intelligence community as it is forced to disengage from foreign intelligence services like Mi6 and Mossad. We have to stand alone.

    Q. Whats the immediate effect of Vault 7 for the average computer user?

    A. Siege mentality, I would imagine. Is your anti virus actually a virus? You will see computer “eye patches” being sold to cover the camera. Users will start to physically disable their mics, and only use headphone mic’s that you can detach when not using it.The public will equate all internet enabled consumer products as weapons of espionage and potential murder. The climate of the American public is one of distrust and apprehension. They do not feel protected. If you’re talking about a failure to protect America people, you can add, the CDC, the SEC, the USDA, Homeland Security, and just about every other branch of government.

    But, the sub rosa conclusions swim in even deeper waters. America feels sabotaged by it’s Government. We falsely believed we were spectators at a Roman Arena, watching the blood sport of foreign wars on our flat screens and computers. Iraq, Syria, Yemen.

    But, now we have soft terror in France, Germany, Turkey, United States, and so on. And with the revelation of our devices listening in on us, its clear we are not spectators in the Roman Arena, but lion and gladiator fodder, as well.

    Q. So its all going to hell?

    A. No. Vault 7 is a good thing, actually. From a military standpoint, it’s better to protect an aware civilian population than one that is programmed and obtuse . The average Joe and Mary damn well want to know if their kids are being spied on. The exploitation of these cybertools, in the hands of pedophiles, psychopaths and phishermen is what should really alarm people. This is a watershed moment in American history, The pursuit of privacy may eclipse the pursuit of happiness.

    Q. Can I trust my phone?

    A. Google’s Android Operating System is used in almost 9 out of 10 smart phones globally. Google, Facebook and Apple may very well have sold backdoor access to the CIA. We call it Judas technology.

    Quote Posted by Innocent Warrior (here)
    Considering Trump's commitment to giving the country back to the people and to their security, you'd think he'd more concerned about the CIA's activities, right? Perhaps he's been given no-go zones, in which case, I'm not too concerned about their threats to WikiLeaks.
    Trump himself has actually been conspicuously quiet in regard to the latest from Wikileaks. All I know of him saying is that any leaking of classified information is illegal and a threat to our national security, and I think he sent that out in a tweet. He doesn't seem to be making a big deal of it, and with all of his "deep state" enemies in the CIA, it's obvious why he wouldn't.

    Having said that, I think he's going to keep his distance from Wikileaks and act like he's outraged for now, because later on they're going to be dropping even bigger bombshells and everybody knows it. That's going to help get public sentiment behind a major draining of the swamp, and Trump wouldn't want to compromise that by giving the media any indication that he actually supports what Wikileaks is doing.

    If Trump acted like he supported the Wikileaks releases, the media would immediately latch onto that to claim that Wikileaks is working for Trump and Putin and they're trying to take down their Democratic opposition in a staged political witchhunt, etc. The narrative they're going to go with is so obvious at this point that it's sad. But Trump is playing smart by making it appear as though he disapproves of the leaks.

    I get the feeling that Pence is rather dense to all of this stuff and unfortunately he can't be fired. The best we can hope for is for him to be redpilled.

    @Kiwi - the FAQ section of Vault 7 does indicate the series could have been submitted by multiple sources, we will find out as other parts are released, looks like it could be a mixed bag of CIA intel. Great post, TY (and there it is - pedogate, fingers crossed).

    @A voice from the mountains - good to read, hopefully other parts of the series will give Pence the red pills he needs, TY.

    I agree... this "info" has all the same nuances as the original 4chan/FBI leaker and alludes to what I stated in my original post #2: - that source unfortunately disappeared shortly after I posted it.

    Trump is being quite clever; it takes the flak off him from the left to a "third party" while his admin works to topple Obama et al (CNN were already conspiring to accuse Trump of a "revenge hit" when the Pedogate arrests/story hits. According to Dr Steve Pieczenik, the "good guys" (incl Trump) are working closely with Alex Jones & Wikileaks to bring this about).

    Of course, Trump has to weed out & expose the traitors within his own admin while all this is going down.

    He's basically setting them up & letting them hang themselves. We should see a few more "firings" shortly.

    The next Vault 7 releases will be progressively more "spectacular".
