For when all else is done, on­ly words re­main. Words en­dure.

In July 2012 NSA's General Keith Alexander (alias the Bilderberg Biddy) spoke at Defcon, the hacker conference in Las Vegas, wearing jeans and a cool EFF t-shirt (LOL. Wtf was that?). He was trying to seduce hackers into improving Internet security and colonoscopy systems, and to recruit them, ofc, for his future cyberwars. It was an amusing hypocritical attempt made by the system to flatter hackers into becoming tools for the state, while his so-righteous employer hunts any who doesn't bow to them like fucking dogs.


We got the message.

We decided we'd help out Internet security by auditing FBI first. We all know by now they make Internet insecure on purpose to help their bottom line. But it's a shitty job, especially since they decided to hunt us down and jail our friends.

Lifted from here.

It's the old double standard that has been around since the 80's. Govt Agencies are obsessed with witchhunts against hackers worldwide, whilst they also recruit hackers to carry out their own political agendas.

You are forbidden to outsmart the system, to defy it, to work around it. In short, while you may hack for the status quo, you are forbidden to hack the status quo. Just do what you're told. Don't worry about dirty geopolitical games, that's business for the elite. They're the ones that give dancing orders to our favorite general, Keith, while he happily puts on a ballet tutu. Just dance along, hackers. Otherwise... well...

In 1989 hagbard (23yrs old) was murdered after being involved into cold war spy games related to KGB and US. Tron, another hacker, was murdered in 1998 (aged 26) after messing around with a myriad of cryptographic stuff (yeah, it's usually a hot item) and after making cryptophon easily accesible for the masses. And then you have Gareth Williams (31), the GCHQ hacker murdered and "bagged" inside a MI6's "safe" house (we'd hate to see what the unsafe ones look like) in August of 2010 after talking about being curious about leaking something to Wikileaks with fellow hackers on irc. And the list goes on. It's easy to cover up when they want to, hackers often have complex personalities, so faking their suicide fits well.

You are welcome to hack what the system wants you to hack. If not, you will be punished.

Jeremy Hammond faces the rest of his productive life in prison for being an ideological motivated political dissident. He was twice jailed for following his own beliefs. He worked until the end to uncover corruption and the connivance between the state and big corporations. He denounces the abuses and bribes of the US prison system, and he's again facing that abuse and torture at the hands of authorities.

Last year, Bradley Manning was tortured after allegedly giving WikiLeaks confidential data belonging to US govt... oh shit. The world shouldn't know how some soldiers enjoy killing people and even less when they kill journalists. Of course, the common housewife doesn't deserve to know the truth about the hypocrisy in the international diplomacy or how world dictators spend money in luxury whilst their own people starve. Yep, the truth belongs only to the elite, and if you are not part of them (forget it, that won't happen), fuck yourself.

People are frustrated, they feel the system manipulating them more than ever. Never underestimate the power of frustrated people. For the last few years we have broke into systems belonging to Governments and Big corporations just to find out they are spending millions of tax dollars to spy on their citizens. They work to discredit dissenting voices. They pay their friends for overpriced and insecure networks and services.

We showed how former govt and military officials were making new businesses using their government relationships. They funnel public money to their own interests for overpriced contracts for crap level services. They use those relationships to extra-officially resolve affairs involving their businesses.

We exposed a criminal System eliminating those who think different; criminalizing them. This System won't tolerate those who dig for the truth, it can't. So no one has the right to question anything coming from this system. if you buy a piece of hardware or software you just need to use it as it was supposed to be used: anything else is forbidden. No tinkering allowed.

If you buy a Playstation, you are not allowed to use it as you want to -- you can only use it the Sony wants you to. If you have found a way to improve something, just shut up. You are not allowed to share this info with anyone else and let them make improvements, too. We are not the real owners of anything anymore. We just borrow things from the System. Shiny, colorful things, we agree to play with for a fee. A fee for life. Because this system works only if you keep working to buy new things. Not important if they are good things, just buy new crap, even better like that. So everything gets outdated soon.

You home, stuff, car and computer, you will pay for everything you have for all of your life. All the time: a monthly fee, forever until you die. That's the future; nothing is really yours. LAAS - Life As A Service.

You will rent your life.

And better hurry up and work all day if you want to stay alive. Work 'til you're exhausted and don't think. No -- thinking is bad. Play games instead, do drugs too, why not? Or go to the movies. The Entertainment Industry is here to resolve all your philosophical and trascendental problems. Shiny colorful crap. but please don't think too much.

Thinking is dangerous.

Accept the offer, it's the perfect deal. You get all those amazing shiny colorful beads. It will only cost you freedom...and your life. Indians did it with Manhattan. There's nothing to worry about it, is there?

And what if you are a lone wolf who quietly outside the system, doing your own thing, without saying a word? They will be mad as hell. They will try to find you. You will be fucked up anyway, sooner or later. Because the system wants you clearly identified, with all your personal details well packed into a government database so it can make its watchdogs' lives easier.

Security researchers are often questioned and their movements tracked by Secret Service, FBI and other shits. They are asked about their projects, who their clients are, who they are talking to, what they know about other hackers, etc.. So be a good monkey, follow the rules, head down and you'll get some coins that let you keep renting your life.

But hey! Wait...

We are hackers...

We are supposed to look beyond the rules, to find things others don't see. And THE SYSTEM, yeah the whole fucking system, it's just another system. ...and we do that.

we hack systems.

This is our next challenge: to decide whether to become tools for the system, or for ourselves. The system plans to use us to hold the next in their endless wars, their cyberwars. Hackers vs. hackers, slaves vs slaves.

We are trapped.

Jack Henry Abbott, a writer who was incarcerated almost his whole life for his crimes, wrote before hanging himself: "As long as I am nothing but a ghost of the civil dead, I can do nothing...", the 'civil dead' are those, like himself, who had their autonomy systematically destroyed by the state.

Now his words extend to cover all of us.

We have seen our own autonomy being systematically destroyed by the State.

We are becoming ghosts of our dead civil rights.

Don't Even Get Me Started. Just Don't. I'll get back to you soon with a paraphrased from memory transcript of my hour-long chat with United States Federal Bureau of Investigation Agent Tom, Cyber Crime Specialist. You do recall - surely you must - that I got three extra months at Western for mouthing off to a judge? I'm even happy to pull that same stunt on a man who's packing taxpayer-funded heat, as well as the expertise to use it. The very happy news though, is that I enjoyed the return of my Early 2006 MacBook Pro the very next day. Bye Now. ;-D

I made a diary about this very subject. What are the chances that they released real data? I haven't seen any corroboration yet.

Your vote (-1) was recorded.
This story currently has a total score of 14.

You were the last vote. We've considered the votes and comments, and decided the story should be posted. Thank you!

hai guyz we hax0red teh gibson lets copypasta some shit propaganda with this nothing leak which will show teh fedz we got in! never mind the tacit acknowledgement we just gave to the need for government protection of privacy by pointing out the holes in their defenses instead of going straight for the fucking jugular like we would if we ever intended to do anything about it.

gratz. you hacked a fbi laptop. how about instead of posting a list of a bunch of iFaggots to prove to the world what everyone already knows, you dump his personal contacts. you know, drop dox on all his friends, family, and colleagues.

oh, right. that might lead to action, and action means responsibility. can't have that now.

It's too bad too, these alphabet soup agencies need a good black eye.

Would anon have pussied out like this? Hmm...

the original #lulzsec krew were hardcore. unfortunately they were shit at opsec, where #antisec seems to do a better job.

the lulz will come when they find they're just as fucked in spite of going out of their way to protect people's privacy. i mean the whole point of the project is to bring attention to the fact that privacy is dead. that's not something you pussy foot around with. grind the public's nose in it. post ALL of the embarrassing shit you find and make sure to cross index it with their facebook pages so all their friends and family can have a notty pile of drama shoved up their apathetic assholes.

What was more interesting to me was the "million dollar race" they started soon after, which apparent had something to do with some accounting records.

News story remains so far, but the pastebin seems to be purged.

Well, whatever.
