    WARNING free Russian cell app is a RIS backdoor tracking app.....was even being pushed by Trump's daughter Ivanka.....

    ASK the Trump administration if they knew that a free ware cell app being pushed by the Trump daughter Ivanka and Russian software types was in fact a spy app for the Russian SVR and GRU collecting movement data on each phone it was installed on???? warning came via social media not US IT companies and or US IC......

    12h after getting exposed as RUS IC asset @skyguru_app backpedals, gets caught red-handedly.

    Russian Intelligence Community can't live without undermining Russian app business. Yet they are consent /w it.

    THIS is the second Russian freeware app caught providing cell data back to RIS....first app called PRISUM....an number of Russian free games are also infected and controlled by RIS....

    I find it mildly entertaining @skyguru_app claims their double citizenship is sufficient for plausible denial...claiming Russian and Israeli....

    Russian app @IvankaTrump & Russian fake news channels are selling is registered in closed town of Snezhinsk in Chelyabinsk Oblast, #Russia.

    Like this is something new?

    LONDON -- “Russia is clearly testing NATO and the West,” Britain’s defense minister warned Thursday night. “It is seeking to expand its sphere of influence, destabilize countries and weaken the alliance.”
    Michael Fallon said Vladimir Putin had sought, since the fall of the Soviet Union, to compete against the West, using deliberate misinformation and hacking to undermine Western governments and bolster populist sentiment.
    “We see a country that, in weaponizing misinformation, has created what we might now see as the post-truth age,” said Fallon.

    AdamG,

    This was speech by Michael Fallon, the UK's Defence Secretary, was odd. First it was given @ St Andrews University, Scotland and appears to have been a response to a critical parliamentary report - which the MoD "spin doctors" ensured got ample coverage, diverting attention.

    So what did the parliamentary report say? One passage in the BBC's report on the speech:
    Meanwhile MPs have warned that a skills shortage and "chaotic" handling of personal data breaches are undermining confidence in the UK government's ability to protect its own infrastructure and economy from cyber attacks.
    Link:http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-38850907

    From a longer BBC report, which starts with:
    A skills shortage and "chaotic" handling of personal data breaches are undermining confidence in the government's ability to protect the UK from cyber attacks, MPs have warned.

    And now, hardly surprising, Russian and Wikileaks propaganda resources are aimed against Emmanuel Macron in France.

    Current hack that reveals a lot of Russian porn sites and Russian botnets....on the dark side....

    First look inside the Freedom Hosting II#leak

    Freedom Hosting II was hacked some time earlier today with the Anonymous hackers asking for 0.1 BTC for the leaked files.

    https://pirate.london/inside-the-fre...693#.6irurfvpy

    Since then they changed their minds and released the master database files for free. Sometime Saturday morning GMT they also released the system files as well as a statement about how the hack was done.

    I was one of the first people to grab this.

    Thanks for your patience, you don’t have to buy data# we made a torrent of the database dump download here
    Here another torrernt with all system files (excluding user data) download
    You may still donate BTC to 14iCDyeCSp12AmhVfJGxtrzXDabFop4QtU and support us.
    My copy of the databases torrent
    My copy of the system files torrent
