Hacker Uses An Android To Remotely Attack and Hijack A Plane

By taking advantage of two new technologies for the discovery, information gathering and exploitation phases of the attack, and by creating an exploit framework (SIMON) and an Android app (PlaneSploit) that delivers attack messages to the airplanes' Flight Management Systems (computer unit + control display unit), he demonstrated the terrifying ability to take complete control of aircrafts by making virtual planes "dance to his tune."

Planes Grounded After Hackers Hijack An Airline's Flight Plan System

Practice makes perfect!

A cyberattack on Polish airline LOT left ten flights canceled this Sunday, stranding around 1,400 people at Warsaw’s Chopin airport. The attack hit the airline’s ground computer system, which is used to make flight plans.

The hackers didn’t break into the IT on the planes, but this incident makes it even more obvious that the air travel industry needs to be vigilant about cybersecurity. Earlier this year, security researcher Chris Roberts reportedly commandeered an airplane to demonstrate how crappy United’s security setup is.

“We’re using state-of-the-art computer systems, so this could potentially be a threat to others in the industry,” spokesman Adrian Kubicki told Reuters.

New Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 ‘Cyber Hijack’ Theory Emerges After ‘Vulnerabilities’ Found In Inflight System

As the search for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 continues, investigators have come across some startling evidence that the plane could have been hijacked using a mobile phone or even a USB stick. The theory comes from a British anti-terrorism expert who says cyber terrorists could have used a series of “codes” to hack the plane’s in-flight entertainment system and infiltrate the security software.

According to Sally Leivesley, a former scientific adviser to the UK’s Home Office, the Boeing 777’s speed, direction and altitude could have been changed using radio signals sent from a small device. The theory comes after investigators determined that someone with knowledge of the plane’s system intentionally flew the jet off course.

“It might well be the world’s first cyber hijack,”

Suspicions about the Russian Plane Crash

"Once again, politicians, intelligence agents and journalists have made up their minds that a bomb triggered the crash of a Russian Airbus A321, though evidence to support this theory is ephemeral."
- Christine Negroni, "Why the rush to judgment in the Metrojet disaster?"

[Carmi] Gillon suggested that today a terror organization could take over a jet plane and “achieve something like 9-11” without fielding any flesh and blood attackers.
- Carmi Gillon, former head of Israel’s Shin Bet security service, “The double-edged sword of cyber warfare,” Times of Israel, June 24, 2015

“Cyberspace enables the attack of another nation state in offensive action, even reaching victory without leaving any fingerprints, even if it is suspected. We are already there; we are not talking about some distant future. We have experienced this in Israel’s day-to-day actions against its enemies.”
- Israel Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Ibid., Times of Israel, June 24, 2015

The Paris Attacks - À quoi bon?

There are basically two ways to view the terror attacks in Paris: they were, either, as French President François Hollande says, “an act of war… committed by a terrorist army, DAESH, a jihadist army,” – or they were something else.

Given the fact that the fraudulent “War on Terror” is an Israeli construct dating back to the 1970s, the first suspect would have to be Israeli intelligence.
Why would they do that?
To advance the Israeli strategy known as the “War on Terror” – and destroy Syria in the process.

How would they do it?

Flashback: Did Money Seal Israeli-Saudi Alliance?

According to a source briefed by U.S. intelligence analysts, the Saudis have given Israel at least $16 billion over the past 2 ½ years, funneling the money through a third-country Arab state and into an Israeli “development” account in Europe to help finance infrastructure inside Israel. The source first called the account “a Netanyahu slush fund,” but later refined that characterization, saying the money was used for public projects such as building settlements in the West Bank.

In other words, according to this information, the Saudis concluded that if you can’t beat the Israel Lobby, try buying it. And, if that is the case, the Saudis have found their behind-the-scenes collaboration with Israel extremely valuable. Netanyahu has played a key role in lining up the U.S. Congress to fight an international agreement to resolve a long-running dispute over Iran’s nuclear program.

The Crackdown Begins: Europe Just Passed "Strict Controls To Make It Difficult To Acquire Firearms"

And while we are awaiting for a full blown European version of the Patriot Act, we can say that the second part of the forecast just came true, because this morning The European Commission announced it had adopted a package of measures to strengthen control of firearms across the European Union and meant simply to make it "difficult to acquire firearms."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

France already had strict gun control, which is why none of the victims of the "terror" attack could shoot back! But those laws did not prevent the "terrorists" from acquiring military weapons! Remember the witness reports of three-round bursts? That is not a feature supported on the Kalishnikov, but on the M-16 and its variants!

Paris attacks: The eight terror suspects named so far are not refugees and all have EU passports

Claims that a surge in the number of refugees entering Europe from Syria has allowed jihadists to sneak into France, Germany and Belgium unchecked and unnoticed have propagated in the days since Friday's Paris terror attacks, in which 129 people were killed and hundreds more were wounded.

A passport found near the remains of a suicide bomber at the Stade de France purporting to belong to a Syrian refugee named Ahmed Almuhamed, 25, gave rise to 'scare' headlines such as 'Paris attacks terrorist suspect rescued near Greece after his refugee boat sunk' and 'Jihadis sneaked into Europe as fake Syrian refugees'.

Things That Can And Cannot Be Said

Every nation-state tends towards the imperial—that is the point. Through banks, armies, secret police, propaganda, courts and jails, treaties, taxes, laws and orders, myths of civil obedience, assumptions of civic virtue at the top. Still it should be said of the political left, we expect something better. And correctly. We put more trust in those who show a measure of compassion, who denou­nce the hideous social arrangements that make war inevitable and human desire omnipresent; which fosters corporate selfishness, panders to appetites and disorder, waste the earth.

Identified Paris Attackers Were Not Refugees

Contrary to previous reports, all identified terrorists involved in the Paris attacks last week were European nationals. Does this affect the outlook on Syrian refugees resettling in foreign countries?

The attackers were using phony refugee passports, so closing the borders makes perfect sense. If we go on allowing the refugees into nations, terrorists will go on pretending to be refugees to get in.

Tennessee GOP leader: Round up Syrian refugees, remove from state

A top Tennessee Republican lawmaker believes the time has come for the National Guard to round up any Syrian refugees who have recently settled in the state and to stop any additional Syrian refugees from entering Tennessee.

"We need to activate the Tennessee National Guard and stop them from coming in to the state by whatever means we can," said House GOP Caucus Chairman Glen Casada, R-Franklin, referencing refugees.

"I’m not worried about what a bureaucrat in D.C. or an unelected judge thinks. ... We need to gather (Syrian refugees) up and politely take them back to the ICE center and say, 'They’re not coming to Tennessee, they’re yours.' "

Webmaster's Commentary: 

That would be an interesting moment: States' National Guard units against the US Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines (which Obama most probably will not hesitate to send in) whose mission will be preventing any further dislocation of Syrian refugees.

I would like to hope that President Obama is cognizant of the reality that there is an election next year; pulling this kind of stunt would not do well for the Democratic Party, particularly in the so-called "swing states".

But I can rather well imagine that other states' lawmakers may well be having the same thoughts as has Mr. Casada.

U.S. Government Moves To Exploit Paris Terror Attacks To Ban Privacy

Last week, the British Prime Minister told Parliament that he wants to “ensure that terrorists do not have a safe space in which to communicate.”

Strong encryption refers to the act of scrambling data in such a way that it cannot be understood by anyone without the correct key or password — even law enforcement with a warrant, or the software manufacturer itself. It’s used in some of the most popular tech products in the world, including the iPhone, WhatsApp messenger, and Facebook.

A highly respected cryptographer and security expert is warning that David Cameron’s proposed ban on strong encryption threatens to “destroy the internet.”

– From the post: Top Computer Security Expert Warns – David Cameron’s Plan to Ban Encryption Would “Destroy the Internet”
You didn’t think the surveillance state would give up that easily did you? Of course not.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

All the draconian actions taken by the US government, relative to freedom and communication, and every bit of US government surveillance, did not stop the attack in Paris.

And I would like to remind those in DC that doing more of the same thing, over and over the same way, yet expecting a different outcome, is one of the most classical definitions of insanity.

More attacks in Europe to follow?

US intelligence had not yet confirmed that it was the Islamic State group that claimed responsibility for the attacks. At the same time, the CIA Director added that the attacks in Paris and the crash of the Russian A321 aircraft in Egypt, were signs of the activities of the Islamist group. Noteworthy, Islamic State posted a message on Twitter saying that next targets would be London, Rome and Washington. It appears that the Americans are confused about the fact that the omnipresent NSA and the intelligence network are unable to cope with the terrorist threat. The refusal of the authorities of 24 US states to accept refugees from Syria came as an expression of general uncertainty and lack of confidence to special services. There is another version: Washington did not even think to cope with the terrorist threat. Many analysts suggest that Washington and US allies in the Middle East finance the Islamic State...

Paris attacks: RCMP examines whether voice on ISIS recording is Canadian

The RCMP is examining whether the voice on an audio recording attributed to ISIS and released in the wake of the Paris attacks belongs to a Canadian.

Const. Annie Delisle, a spokeswoman for the RCMP, confirmed to CBC News on Wednesday that the police force is aware of media reports about the apparently Canadian voice, "and are following up."

On Monday, CBC News asked three linquistics specialists to analyze the recording, and all concluded the voice, speech patterns and dialect are distinctly Canadian.

BEX Alert!!! - "Univ. of Vermont holds privilege retreat for students who 'self-identify as white'"

The University of Vermont held a three-day retreat so students who “self-identify as white” could confront their own “white privilege.”

“Examining White Privilege: A Retreat for Undergraduate Students Who Self-Identify as White” took place last weekend, November 13-15, and was “specifically for white students.”

According to the university, the self-identifying white students who attend the retreat will come to “recognize and understand white privilege from an individual experience” and have the opportunity to “conceptualize and articulate whiteness from a personal and systematic lense as well as the impact of white privilege on the UVM community and beyond.”

Netanyahu: In wake of Paris attacks, world should condemn attacks against Israel

After the tragic events in Paris on Friday where gunmen affiliated with the Islamic State or ISIS killed 129 people in separate and coordinated attacks, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called on world leaders to condemn acts of “terrorism” and “radical Islam” perpetrated by Palestinians, claiming “the terrorists who attack us have the same murderous intent as those in Paris.”

“The time has come for the world to wake up and unite in order to defeat terrorism. The time has come for countries to condemn terrorism against us to the same degree that they condemn terrorism everywhere else in the world,” Netanyahu said at the start of a weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, further adding Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas should renounce attacks on Israelis over recent weeks.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Of course, in Prime Minister Netanyahu's "bizarro world", Israel's actions have done absolutely nothing to incite Palestinians to violence; nothing whatsoever.

I do not know if the man has so lied himself into a corner that he cannot dig his way out, or if he really believes that Israel has zero responsibility for Palestinian anger, which has lead to violence against completely innocent Israelis.

I abhor and condemn violence; but I can understand how it comes about.

The Palestinian people are consistently dealing with serial Israeli genocide against them; they cannot get the materials they desperately need to re-build Gaza, which was brutally destroyed by Operation Protective Edge (in which schools and hospitals were bombed); they can get thrown into jail in selective detention, which can continue indefinitely, even against children, who may be tortured to confess, with no due process whatsoever; many are denied desperately needed medical treatment; homes and crops can be bombed by settlers with impunity (killing those within those homes); and many have had their homes demolished or taken from them on the charge that "proper building permits did not exist", in homes in which Palestinian have lived for generations.

Under these circumstances, I would conclude that the energy toward any kind of rapprochement between Palestinians and the Israeli government has been thoroughly exhausted by the actions of the Israeli government, and this is precisely how the Israeli government wants to see things remain; the Israelis do not want peace, but territory, and by any means necessary.

So I strongly caution Prime Minister Netanyahu that, with all that is going on against the Palestinians, playing the "victim card" here will not get you any real traction in the international court of public opinion.

NYT Editorial Slams “Disgraceful” CIA Exploitation of Paris Attacks, But Submissive Media Role Is Key

A truly superb New York Times editorial this morning mercilessly shames the despicable effort by U.S. government officials to shamelessly exploit the Paris attacks to advance long-standing agendas. Focused on the public campaign of the CIA to manipulate post-Paris public emotions to demonize transparency and privacy and to demand still-greater surveillance powers for themselves, the NYT editors begin:

It’s a wretched yet predictable ritual after each new terrorist attack: Certain politicians and government officials waste no time exploiting the tragedy for their own ends. The remarks on Monday by John Brennan, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency, took that to a new and disgraceful low.

Calif. teen sues cop who threw her face-first to the ground hours after she graduated high school

18-year-old Gabbi Lemos was brutally assaulted by a police officer after celebrating her graduation from high school at her home. Hours after the party, Deputy Marcus Holton and six other officers with the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department arrived uninvited at the home and began aggressively interrogating people who were outside.

Before approaching the house, Holton noticed that Gabbi’s sister Karli was sitting in a parked vehicle outside with her boyfriend and he began to question them. At one point during the interrogation, Holton opened Karli’s door and attempted to physically rip her out of the vehicle.

Gabbi’s mother Michelle Lemos then came out and told her to go in the house. Next, according to the lawsuit, Holten “bolted around the family and without a word caught Gabbi from behind the neck in a chokehold, lifting her small body off the ground several feet before throwing her face-first onto the driveway.”

READ THE ONE PARAGRAPH THAT EXPLAINS WHY NO BANKERS HAVE GONE TO JAIL

Earlier this morning, as I was just minding my own business reading what appeared to be an uneventful Wall Street Journal article titled, Justice Department Gets Tougher on Corporate Crime, I came across a stunning revelation.

Before getting into it, I should provide a little background. Back in September, I highlighted a document known as the “Yates memo,” referring to a document written by deputy attorney general Sally Yates which promises to target individuals in cases of corporate wrongdoing. This of course made everyone wonder why the Justice Department wasn’t doing so in the first place. Which brings me to the shocking revelation in yesterday’s WSJ article…

The changes to the U.S. Attorney’s manual make clearer the practical impact the shift is expected to have in individual investigations.

MOST POLICE TRAINING IS SIMPLY LEARNING TO KILL – IT’S LEADING TO A DEADLY ‘EPIDEMIC’

The Free Thought Project has been covering the murder of 19-year-old Zachary Hammond by Officer Mark Tiller since the incident occurred on July 26th. Three weeks ago the heartbreaking dashcam video was finally released, which shows a maniacal Tiller ruthlessly take the life of this teenager over a suspected bag of weed.

According to the Post and Courier, “the Hammond case was far from unusual” in South Carolina.

A campus cop at Spartanburg Methodist College shot to death an unarmed college student driving a car—including twice in the head—after responding to a report of a vehicle break-in. Of course, the cop claims that 20-year-old Delvin Simmons was trying to run him over, but there is no bodycam or dashcam video to refute that claim.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

De-escalation, and "walking back" a situation so it does not erupt in violence, do not appear to be tools in Americas' police officers' "tool kit" and this is not just about South Carolina, but about the nation as a whole.

One has to wonder if "the word" has come down from the highest Federal and State authorities that it is OK assassinate unarmed suspects with impunity, because it reinforces the power of The State over the individual.

The other factor, of course, is the IDF training of American police, which makes those police treat American citizens just the way the IDF treats the Palestinians.

INMATES CHARGED FOR BEING IN JAIL

A new report from the ACLU of Ohio reveals the majority of jails it examined in Ohio charge prisoners “pay to stay” fees that can reach thousands of dollars. The fees are even levied against the poor, despite state law that’s supposed to prevent it.

Of the 75 jails reviewed by the ACLU, 40 charge a one-time booking fee or a daily fee that can amount to crippling debt for those incarcerated for long periods. The ACLU found the daily fee can be as high as $66.09 a day.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Charging prisoners for their own upkeep, which ultimately becomes unpayable debt, is almost a guarantee of recidivism.

What I do not understand is that countries like Sweden are closing a number of their prisons, because they don't have enough prisoners to fill them. Sweden is very big on rehabilitation, and their recidivism rate is no where near what it is in the US. So what is wrong with this picture?!?

WITNESS SAYS PARIS ATTACKERS WERE CLEAN SHAVEN WHITE MEN IN A NEW MERCEDES-BENZ

According to witness testimony that has been mostly overlooked by the international media, the attackers were described as clean-shaven white men who were driving a brand-new black Mercedes-Benz.

According to the UK’s Mirror, an eyewitness by the name of Mahoud Admo said that he witnessed the initial drive by shooting, and saw the attackers without masks as they passed by in Mercedes-Benz calmly firing machine guns into the crowd.

The fact that Admo was not able to get footage is entirely understandable, but it is certainly odd that with how public of an attack this was that there was not an abundance of cell phone a security camera footage. Even without video evidence, witness reports suggest that the attackers do not meet the stereotypical description of a “terrorist” that is depicted in the media. This was also indicated by the fact that all of the terrorists who were named so far were actually EU citizens.
