"The FBI is investigating the leaks"

You guys realize that 9 times out of 10 the FBI is stopping its own plots?

Got numbers on that chief?

Are there so few actual Terrorists that the FBI has to recruit them into manufactured attacks? — September 2011

FBI Continues To Foil Its Own Devised Terrorist Plots — September 2012

NYT — Terrorist Plots, Hatched by the F.B.I. — April, 2012

FBI ‘Stops’ Yet Another Of Its Own Terrorist Threats — February, 2013

Or you can try this, this, this, this…or how about the time when the FBI claimed to have thwarted their own car bomb … or that time the FBI infiltrated the OWS movement and pushed people to want to commit violent acts of destruction

What makes you certain that’s statistically significant?

You’re right, let’s not focus on the identity of the hacker or the flawed Apple security or how it correlates to the on-going public “discussion” over online privacy and surveillance.

It’s just not possible that a government insider would do something so outrageous, there is just no evidence to back up that sort of behavior.

After all, it’s not like NSA employees routinely pass around intercepted nude photos all the time or like the photos had been on ‘deep web’ black market for a week before they were released.

It’s just not plausible to imagine that government employees are amassing goldmines of private porn taken from the State’s panopticon. I mean, just because they share them amongst themselves, like…why would they be assholes and leak them to the public? What state-sanctioned pervert is going to go around offering a precious nude to someone like Perez Hilton for precious bitcoin?

There is just no statistical likelihood for something like that to occur. It’s much more likely that one lone hacker managed to breach Apple’s impenetrable iCloud security all on his own and for no reason but to leak the nudes of these poor, poor celebrities.

To think the government would do something as morally bereft as tampering with private computer files! How absurd

priceofliberty, those are all good reasons why it’s not impossible for the government to have done this, but no good reasons why they did, or even why it’s probable.

bureaucraticcollectivist:

it’s gonna be fun when the republicans win back the presidency because suddenly every tumblr liberal is going to “discover” mass deportation, drone strikes and everything else that was going on under obama, but act as if it’s something the republicans started.

This would literally be the most depressing thing that could possibly happen to me.

Just HOW much personal responsibility does your generation need to shed before you get it through your thick skulls that it only costs $20 for a decent external hard drive these days? :|

I didn’t read your diary. The person who did doesn’t give a shit about your privacy. You need to protect yourself.

Literally everything is the government’s fault, they are just that organized and corrupt. They just can’t get anything done when anybody is looking.

Link 31 Aug 8 notes JPMorgan Hackers Came In the Front Door -- in June. Two Months of Mayhem»

priceofliberty:

Hackers burrowed into the databanks of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and deftly dodged one of the world’s largest arrays of sophisticated detection systems for months.

The attack, an outline of which was provided by two people familiar with the firm’s investigation, started in June at the digital equivalent of JPMorgan’s front door, exploiting an overlooked flaw in one of the bank’s websites. From there, it quickly developed into any security team’s worst nightmare.

The hackers unleashed malicious programs that had been designed to penetrate the corporate network of JPMorgan — the largest U.S. bank, which had vowed two months before the attack began to spend a quarter-billion dollars a year on cybersecurity. With sophisticated tools, the intruders reached deep into the bank’s infrastructure, silently siphoning off gigabytes of information, including customer-account data, until mid-August.

It looks like they only took information, not money.
