A highlight from Operacin Bitcoins: Del Infierno a la Resurreccin
"With the story of Alberto Daniel Gil, the crypto and informatics expert, he was justly invited to speak for a speech that did not come to mind. For Manuel Rangel. In February of 2017, the US government, the press of the secure and medical services that function similar to a cooperative, most important of the Pekingo and Ermoso countries of Uruguay, was vulnerable informatically. The cybercriminals entered the portal's base, dropping thousands of megabytes of confidential information from their patients, In total, the recompensas that were solicited were a total of $60 ,000. Ironically, the worst mistake that all cybercriminals had was the fact that they did not follow a paid direction. This story started. Obviously, in the Catholic circuit of Uruguay, the mutualists were affected by institutions that had more than one side of the foundation, not because of the mass crusades. During the weeks, they worked with the police to restrain the extortionists. Six months later, the second Minister of the Interior came with a direction, and he knew that he was supposedly vulnerable to the mass attacks of the press. As if it were a movie, the policy of Montevideo changed the apartment of Alberto Daniel Gil, an informatic engineer of 40 years ago, among the informatics, computers, and blockchain technology. Alberto had in his house collections of different types of hardware, computers, depositors of his own, sellers of their own, or analysts of crypto -monetas. This was the policy that controlled dollars and euros in effect, a tool to grab and remove magnetic charges, and various signs of these plastic things as a number, and a car of Guy Fawkes, the one that was converted into a symbol of the anarchists in the whole world. Bingo. Excuse the policy. These elements are sufficient evidence to demonstrate that Alberto is the hacker that used it. One of his most basic records, his personal information, included a constant monitoring activity on the web, and he received a judicial process with many inconsistencies. Alberto was in prison, not satisfied with this. His case was found through communication media, as a big part of the technological section of the General General's office to control the criminal crime in Interpol, and from the same presidency of the Republic, publicly, as the terrorized protagonist of Bitcoin's operations, as the first case of information and crypto -monetas extortion and crypto -monetas in this country. The case was made. Para Nada. The last of the eight cases in the case of Durasno in Uruguay. Alberto Daniel Gil is liberated from the appeal. His request for liberty is with only mission, limiting his number and inviting him to justice as to what he is committing against his people. Alberto knows that he is innocent, and continues to not relate. He is well -voluted, as a hacker, and he has brought the support of his peers. And as you know, Alberto is a hacker, and has not only his profession, but his personal identity during the decades. He is a hacker of his own life, but he has been able to use his own in the period of being killed in public opinion. The first hacker, who was in the case of a prison in Uruguay, has found his innocence and has evidence to demonstrate it. Here we have to understand that Alberto was not condemned for the death of someone, and his death in the case of Durasno is not that the people consider but that he had the probability of death, assuming that his information could interfere with the rest of the process, for what was considered a preventive prison between the authorities and the students of the case. To understand everything, we have to remind ourselves of two decades ago. Alberto Daniel Gil has more than twenty years of experience in the area of computers, working for important companies and, for the same reason, working precisely in the environment that we live in, the security of information. In 2004, when PENAS started the massification of the Internet, his name was known as the one that affected the first information in a case related to infant pornography, the one for which he did not cover his ears. He has the experience of collaborating with the Interpol. As an infant of information, his contact with the city of Satousina came to an end, enamoring the fact that blockchain technology is free of humanity. He also dedicated part of his life to share his knowledge and to fund the idea of decentralization through workshops and conferences. In few words, Alberto is an engineer who is convinced that information can improve social processes and, in consequence, generate a better world. Everything is a philosophy of being compatible with the details of what is needed. Here we are a few years old. The truth is, the media of communication and the culture of the scene and the television generate what the word hacker has a very negative connotation in the last years. It is very common to look at a series of Hollywood productions, the typical representation of a hacker, and, in a certain amount of lines, and by offering them money, with the intention of buying dollars, a process that seconds after the second one. A very bad image of the world, if you buy and extortionate with digital information, only the work of a small sector of criminals can go against the word hacker. and the ethics of the hacker community. Alberto is sure that it is normal for hackers to go on the Internet and provide the security of the cities they visit. It is a time when they should better their abilities. If they find a way of security, the hacker has the responsibility to notify the company or institution that their web is vulnerable to any attack. Therefore, Alberto has the sense of the records of his constant reports at the center of reports of security incidents in Uruguay. It is his governmental institution dedicated to protecting the government and enforcing the laws of cybernetics. This was precisely what he saw in 2014. His new job was to check out his medical records in the police department. By the time Alberto entered the office, he had to consult the data that was used to provide the security of the office. In order to find a critical vulnerability, he found that the server and the access club would be able to access the admin and the server would be able to find more generic Internet addresses. In terms of administrator, he found that not only the data of his wife, if not all of his patients were in the office, and not only that, including the financial information of the company, was lost. Therefore, Alberto had invited Envio and Correo to be notified of these fake records against the election and pay and methods that were used to increase it, which were already being contested. In 2015, he found that he had the knowledge of an appropriate control of access to the city, for which he did not report the problem. Satisfied by having completed his work, Alberto was able to continue his life and his projects until three years later, he found a part of the police department of Montevideo, so that he had access to an interpreter for a case of cybernetics. Alberto, without anything else, he had to assist the city. In the end, he expected to function in the Interpol, which was introduced to Alberto and asked him about his connection with the company. Completely sincere, Alberto related how three years later he found a fake critic against the portal web, what was being reported until the city was retweaked. He was the one who was there for a year or so. In continuation, he sent the email to the guy who was not able to confirm the base details of the press, asking him to publicize it if he had received any victims. Alberto did not know who Envio was and who had the portal web. However, he did not know who Envio was. A guy from GuyFolks came to the Interpol profile. As we talked about in the beginning, September 10th of 2017, the police and room in Alberto's apartment were a typical part of an information -informed company with computer computers. The first thing that alarmed the police was a book about Bitcoin, a very new and revolutionary topic that revealed the profound knowledge of the functioning of the crypto -monetization and the relationship of this in his mind by the press with the board of directors, leaving them all speechless and immediate. From there, Alberto is a passionate person of this topic. In 2015, he received a private capital from the second book of his life, which permitted him to write some crypto -like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Eterion, and three others to posteriorly accept transactions from companies with some issues because they have thousands of dollars and euros in effect. Now, all of his life is what Alberto justified in a perfect manner. Don't cry. Don't cry when Alberto justified because he had 50 dicks during his studies, if he had laptops and hardware of all types. As good information, one of the habits of Alberto is to disarm all types of computer computers to their interior and to provide different operating systems and many other activities. This is how he is able to accumulate in his poor habits and to become free of crypto -monetization. What is important to convince the investigators that he had found the criminal that his wife was the target owner and one of the target owners of Credit and Debit. The police assumed that Alberto had the number of TDCs online and the number of his targets before the clear explanation of Alberto, who precisely found a investigation about the security problems related to credit targets. Then, the investigation showed that he had the number of TDCs in where he had them. For the last time, in the experience presented to Alberto, the police indicated that he had found an agent in his apartment. Yes, that is the positive of the discussions in the media. The same with the one recorded on the case of Louis D .C. and Maria Antonietta during the French Revolution. The reality? A simple courtesan of Papel. The final evidence that was used to present as a premise until the communication media was Guy Fawkes, which, as we know, is the symbol of the international hackers. For the Interpol director, this curiosity was an definitive evidence of his own ability. Not only the explanation of Alberto in this and the most important elements in his apartment, the police needed to resolve the case, and even were able to demonstrate that he had captured the first terrorized story of Uruguay. The case of this case that here is the case of the process of Alberto. The experience of this case is not exact and not correct. Furthermore, the police also saw how the evidence performed, and other personal elements. It included the values of his son, of his mother and a great friend, who was killed and killed all of the children, not outside of all the problems for Alberto. If Alberto has knowledge of this case, the police will be provided with his automobile and his car. As we mentioned, the Ministry of Interior indicates that the investigation of the case of his his son and that in the place Alberto and in the second place because of investigation of the case of and his son and his car. The Ministry of indicates that the outside of case of his son and his car is provided with the information to indicate that his son and his with the his son and his car and his car his son and his and are to indicate that his son and his provided with the information that son and his son and son and his son and his son and his son and and his mom and his son and and and and his son and his Vete se incluso antes que el propios a tosy na camo uto, pero no sabía ni síquiras que era una dirección IP.
A highlight from ByBit Vacates United Kingdom as "Crypto Hub" Dreams Falter
"Welcome back to The Breakdown with me, NLW. It's a daily podcast on macro, Bitcoin and the big picture power shifts remaking our world. What's going on, guys? It is Monday, September 25th, and today we are updating ourselves on the geopolitical landscape of crypto. Before we get into that, however, if you are enjoying The Breakdown, please go subscribe to it, give it a rating, give it a review, or if you want to dive deeper into the conversation, come join us on the Breakers Discord. You can find a link in the show notes or go to bit .ly slash breakdown pod. Hello, friends. Hope you had a great weekend. There are lots of interesting things to catch up on. And today, a slight theme in some of these stories is where different countries are positioning themselves vis -a -vis crypto. Now, the UK has had an interesting relationship with the industry. They were for a time very harsh. The Financial Conduct Authority in the UK has never seemingly been that into the whole space. But then when Rishi Sunak became chancellor of the exchequer, he declared that the UK would be open for crypto business. He wanted to make the UK the most crypto friendly jurisdiction in the world. Well, of course, over the next few months, through a variety of weird ups and downs, Rishi eventually ended up the prime minister. And of course, it might be reasonable then to ask, is the UK getting friendlier for crypto companies? Well, on that front, Bybit have announced that they will suspend service to UK customers next week in response to regulatory changes. The UK's Financial Conduct Authority, or FCA, will begin enforcement of new marketing regulations starting on October 8. The regulations require crypto firms to ensure advertising is clear, fair, and not misleading, as well as presented alongside a risk warning. Advertisements are required to be certified by firms, but this process requires crypto firms to be registered in the UK. So far, UK licenses have been difficult to obtain for non -domestic exchanges. The rules also require a number of technical changes to exchange business operations around new customers. For example, exchanges need to implement a 24 -hour cooling -off period before a new customer is allowed to make transactions. They are also required to put in place client appropriateness testing and client categorization features. These measures could involve limiting the size, for example, of crypto investments based on the customer's net worth. Now, penalties for non -compliance in these new rules are harsh, with unlimited fines and even criminal charges available as punishments. As you might imagine, the crypto industry has been highly critical of these elements, especially those that require technical changes to platforms. In response to those critiques, the FCA said that they would provide a transition period for firms that request it, potentially giving exchanges until January to come into compliance. Last week, however, the regulators said that they are alarmed at the lack of engagement with foreign firms. Only 24 firms have responded to a survey sent to over 150 companies. In response, the FCA wrote, "...this lack of engagement gives us serious concerns about unregistered firms' readiness to comply with the new regime." Now, in their announcement that UK services would be suspended, Bybit claimed their "...primary objective is to operate our business in compliance with all relevant rules and regulations in the UK." Bybit said that they were making "...a choice to embrace the regulation proactively and pause our services in this market." They said that the "...suspension will allow the company to focus its efforts and resources on being able to best meet the regulations outlined by the UK authorities in the future." Practically, this means that from Sunday, Bybit will no longer be accepting new accounts from UK users. Existing users would be barred from making new deposits or increasing existing positions from October 8th. They will have until January to manage and wind down their existing positions. Bybit, as you might imagine, is not currently registered in the UK and is based in Dubai. Importantly, Bybit is not the only firm suspending service to UK customers in light of the new regulations. Last month, PayPal announced that it would temporarily pause crypto services in the country until next year. On top of that, crypto exchange LUNO said that it would be restricting some customer accounts from being able to invest on the platform until further notice. Bybit CEO Ben Zhao had flagged the firm's exit earlier in September warning of how overly broad the regulations are. He said, "...FCA has explicitly contacted all the major players — us, OKEx, Binance, everyone — and asked what our plan is to deal with this new law. And the new law is that if you use English as a language, they will see you as trying to solicit their users, so you cannot claim that you are in reverse solicitation. Everyone is in trouble. So everyone is thinking of plans of how to deal with this new law." George Morris, a partner at Simmons & Simmons, explained that the marketing regulations had been enforced for securities firms for decades but were now being expanded to cover the crypto industry. He said, "...the rules are extremely complicated and they're quite wide -ranging. It's not just UK firms that are subject to these rules. Anyone with a website that can be accessed in the UK is subject to these requirements." So there are a lot of different elements of this. One challenge is, yes, these advertising standards. But the bigger issue is this whole need to evaluate client suitability and potentially restrict investments. Practically, that either means a ton of financial disclosures from customers that they would have to manage and verify, or there's simply some self -attestation checkbox, which might not be that effective. Basically, with a set of marketing regulations, the FCA have figured out how to limit small retail's ability to buy crypto in the country. Now, one thing that is notable is that we haven't heard anything from the really big international exchanges yet in terms of how they're dealing with this. But in any case, it seems like a big detriment for UK crypto. As Leon TK put it, so much for the UK being a crypto hub, failing already. Now, speaking of places where there is more optimism, last week was, of course, the token 2049 conference in Singapore. And that led to a lot of different discussion around how different the Asian environment for crypto felt as compared to the US and European environments. Indeed, while Western jurisdictions seem to be bogged down with regulations that are unclear at best or hostile at worst, the vibes in Asia are reportedly immaculate. Major conferences around Asia during September saw an uptick in attendance, and regulatory regimes across South Korea, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan appear to be giving the crypto industry a clear set of workable rules to allow firms to re -establish themselves coming out of crypto winter. The block's Frank Shapiro spoke with some conference attendees and reported on an optimism emerging in the East. One conference attendee said that South Korean retail is flocking back to crypto. They argued that young investors in particular view real estate and equities as massively overvalued and out of reach, so are instead opting to buy cryptocurrency. They said they don't buy houses, but they can buy tokens every week. There is a huge market. Another attendee spoke about the difficulty of accessing the Korean market due to South Korea's notoriously tough corporate climate for international firms. They said the liquidity is insane, but it is siloed and protectionist. You have to speak Korean. On that front, crypto custodian BitGo recently partnered with domestic juggernaut Hana Bank due to the difficulty in accessing the market without a local connection. What's more, one anonymous trading firm said they had been waiting five years to operate as a liquidity provider on domestic exchanges in South Korea. They said when they open up, we can be first in line. It's a great retail market. To get a sense of scale, the largest Korean exchange, Upbit, regularly outperforms Coinbase in terms of spot trading volumes. Then there is of course Hong Kong. Their new regulatory regime is off to a tough start in some ways with fraud investigations into crypto exchange JPX becoming public earlier this month. The most recent update is that there have been 11 suspects brought in for questioning and losses have been estimated at 178 million across 2 ,265 victims. Local police have said that the ringleaders of the operation are still at large and have enlisted the help of Interpol. Some are referring to JPX as the largest financial fraud to ever hit the city. Yet despite the major investigation, there are currently no signs that Hong Kong regulators are seeking to reverse course on unexpectedly open crypto regulations. Indeed, on Monday, the Hong Kong Securities and Futures Commission said that it would be releasing the full list of current applicants to ensure that users are able to identify false claims from exchanges. The theme appears to be the same across multiple Asian jurisdictions. Basically, that individual incidents of fraud and malpractice haven't tarnished enthusiasm for the industry as a whole. Another conference attendee told Chiparo, This Asia trip blew my mind. The excitement in Korea and Singapore is the polar opposite of what's going on in the U .S. Alex Vannevik of Nansen wrote, Vannek portfolio manager Pranav Kannadi added some color around how local investors are thinking about the space as well. On September 14, Pranav tweeted, Conversations were mostly positive and a key question was, We're in a crypto winter right now, but when should we expect the next bull run? Not a single convo mentioned the merits of the tech or whether the space survives, feeling optimistic. Now, hopping from Asia over to Europe again for a moment. According to a report from Fortune, Coinbase considered acquiring FTX's European business in the wake of FTX's November bankruptcy. Apparently talks never progressed to a late stage, but the preliminary interest highlights how important international expansion is to Coinbase, particularly regarding its derivatives products. Before the bankruptcy, FTX Europe was the only European firm registered to provide perpetual futures trading. And while derivatives trading remains heavily restricted in the U .S., both Coinbase and Gemini have launched offshore trading venues this year to provide derivatives markets to international customers with a keen eye on Asian regions. For Coinbase, the pivot to derivatives could provide a much needed boost to flagging spot volumes. According to Kiko Research, derivatives volumes in Quarter 2 of this year were six times large than spot. Now, the entity that became FTX Europe was originally acquired in late 2021 for 376 million. The firm was already licensed in Cyprus at the time, which allowed it to access European markets. Since the bankruptcy, the entity, along with its valuable license, have attracted interest from Crypto .com and Trek Labs as well. According to documents viewed by Fortune, Coinbase expressed interest immediately after the FTX bankruptcy and again as recently as last month. That said, FTX Europe has also been in the crosshairs of the U .S.-based FTX bankruptcy team for clawbacks. The estate launched a lawsuit against FTX Europe executives claiming that the original acquisition was a horrendous business decision, arguing that FTX effectively paid 376 million for a $2 million operating license, and on top of this, the sale of FTX Europe seems like a difficult task with active litigation surrounding the firm. In July, the U .S.-based FTX estate said, The FTX debtors' professional advisors have concluded that there is no realistic possibility of a sale. However, last Thursday, they said, The FTX debtors are committed to maximizing the value of FTX's assets to drive customer recoveries. As such, the FTX debtors are continuing to evaluate whether there are viable options for the sale of some or all of the assets of the FTX Europe business. Now one small aside on Coinbase. Arkham Intelligence claimed to have mapped Coinbase's bitcoin wallets and according to Arkham, Coinbase holds almost 1 million bitcoin worth around $25 billion at current market prices. This would amount to almost 5 % of the bitcoin in circulation, similar to the amount held in wallets believed to be owned by Satoshi Nakamoto. Arkham's report showed that Coinbase's largest cold wallet holds around 10 ,000 bitcoin, and the firm believes that Coinbase has additional bitcoin holdings which are not yet labeled and could not be identified. According to data published by CoinGecko, Coinbase only owns around $200 million worth of this gigantic bitcoin stash, with the rest attributable to client custody. However, staying on the Europe question and how valuable this Cyprus license actually is, with Europe's MICA regulations coming into force from June of next year, some firms are beginning to warn that a clear lack of guidance could lead to disruption. The MICA rules were intended to provide a comprehensive framework, but there are still numerous grey areas. One of the major problems surrounds stablecoins. There is currently no guidance on how MICA stablecoin regulations will apply to foreign and decentralized issuers. The default scenario seems to be a ban in Europe unless these issuers can obtain the appropriate licensing, with no arrangement to recognize approvals in other jurisdictions. The European Banking Authority has warned that there will be no grace period for coins already on the market. The EBA and its sister agency, the European Securities and Markets Authority, ESMA, are currently taking public consultation on how the MICA regulations should be implemented. Relatedly last week, the head of legal at Binance France said during a public hearing hosted by the EBA, we are heading towards a delisting of all stablecoins in Europe on June 30th. This could have a significant impact on the market in Europe compared to the rest of the world. Now, Binance CEO CZ quickly walked back the comments claiming, it was a question taken out of context. In fact, we have a couple of partners launching Euro and other stablecoins in fully compliant manners of course. A blog post from Binance explained further, stating that they would be required to delist stablecoins that fail to gain registration in Europe and that no licenses have been granted to stablecoin issuers currently. Binance wrote, While we are confident that there will be constructive solutions in place before the mid -2024 deadline, if left as is, this could have an impact on the European crypto market and the competitiveness of European crypto exchanges in the global market. Now the requirement that stablecoin issuers are EU -based could cause further problems for decentralized organizations. Thomas Vogel, a partner at law firm Latham & Watkins said, So, this is sort of the challenge with MICA. As comprehensive as the regulations are written, how they get implemented is still fairly up in the air. There was commentary around the time that MICA was being voted upon that it could either be a big step in giving the crypto industry a clear set of rules to function, or work as a de facto crypto ban depending on how it was implemented and whether enough licenses were granted. Now, with a little over nine months until MICA comes into force, there is still time to ensure that rules are workable for existing firms, but it appears that there is a lot of work left to do in that regard. Anyways, it's definitely a story to keep an eye on, as something that was seen as largely positive could become quite bad quite quickly. However, friends, that is where we're going to wrap for today. Lots going on in this fascinating world of crypto. Wherever you are enjoying it from, I appreciate you listening. And until next time, be safe and take care of each other.

"A symphony of love and loss, an ocean of memories. Just a day after her birthday, we found ourselves basking in the golden sun, the ocean waves singing a distant lullaby as we share an ice cream in a city by the sea. It was in this moment of tenderness that she revealed the secrets of her past, a time when this very place was her sanctuary as a little girl. Her words flowed like a gentle stream, and as I listened, I struggled to hold back the tears. On the precipice of a new chapter in our lives, I realized how cherished our time had been together, a bond that had flourished for eight years. The oceanside city held precious memories for her that I had unwittingly helped reignite. How could I have known that this would be our final curtain call, that our lives were destined to diverge along separate paths? The weight of this knowledge was shocking yet overshadowed by heartless figures and merciless fate. They brought insidious accusations, striking our intertwined hearts with a torrent of pain so deep that, six years later, my only solace is the hope that she has found happiness, a happiness that she deserves. These individuals orchestrated a cruel symphony, falsely accusing me of a crime and placing the blame on her beautiful, innocent soul. They sought to destroy our love, and even dared to question my past work with Interpol a fact that had been indisputably documented and later verified.

Through the storms and anguish, I find inspiration in the resilience of her spirit, her unwavering love, and her radiant heart. And so I dedicate my own resilience to her, the woman who taught me to find beauty in the most trying times. This story, this symphony of love and loss, serves as a reminder that life's trials and that there exists within us an unbroken genius, an inner strength torn from the ashes of grave adversity. Embrace that strength, face the storms, and dare to rise above them.

"I've widely cited that recently as a positive example of how courts can be a counterbalance to an overreaching SEC, but obviously that wasn't going to be the last we heard about this. The government filed an appeal with the key dispute surrounding a clause in the orders which the government viewed as restraining them from bringing additional legal action against binance U.S. at a later date. Now with a month passed and substantial additional scandals piling up on binance, the appellate judge appears more open to the government's arguments. In a hearing on Monday, the appellate judge said the government's arguments have, quote, gone entirely unrebutted by Voyager and its creditors, and, quote, neither of which have provided any authority for the proposition that a bankruptcy court can release criminal liability. In examining the orders the judge agreed with the government that, quote, the exculpation cause appears to go further than the quasi judicial immunity doctrine allows. The judge, however, was sympathetic to the need to wrap this up quickly, noting that delays could cost as much as $10 million per month to the Voyager estate. A swift timeline has been set with briefs to be lodged by April 18th. Now the other binance story I thought was worth noting that it has to do with their conversion of a $1 billion industry backstop fund from BUSD to Bitcoin and other native crypto. On chain analysts have noted that binance appears to be almost finished with this conversion. In November, CZ announced that binance would be forming an industry recovery fund to help stabilize the industry, and that fund held $1 billion in BUSD at one point, although it's unclear how much of that money was spent to keep crypto firms and projects afloat. In March, after the New York department of financial services shut down the BUSD stablecoin, CZ tweeted that the remaining funds would be converted into Bitcoin, Ethan BNB. The wallet that had been performing transactions since then now appears to be almost depleted of its BUSD holdings with only $96 million left. Why is this relevant? Well, many analysts think that it was this conversion and the announcement of it that actually got this latest rally started. As opposed to people rushing into Bitcoin as a salve for banks failing. This was especially assumed because CZ telegraphed the move so loudly, giving traders the chance to front run it and pile in. So if that buying pressure is exhausted, well, it just means that that buying pressure is exhausted.

"One, it was revealed and it did cause a reaction, and two, I believe pretty firmly that in the world we live in, a world where consensus reality is pretty much gone forever. The way that people react to and discuss the news is a part of the news. If you'll allow me an aside, one of the things that I think makes the breakdown different is the fact that from the very beginning I've treated the discussion around the news as part of the news. It's why you hear so much about what people are saying on crypto Twitter, fin Twitter, and other forums. The process of truth making in our world involves not only the news as it is reported, but the interpretation of that news. I'll give another example. Do the specific words that Jay Powell says at any given press conference matter in the abstract, or do they matter in the context of how people are discussing them? How people are interpreting them, and how people are reacting on the basis of them. Of course, it's the second. So I'm with Frank here, too. The story may have been overblown, and maybe we shouldn't have reacted as much as we did, but it was a story. Now, speaking of market reaction, CZ tweeted, if you panic sell on FUD or Photoshop images, well, you aren't likely to become rich. Block the FUD sources. What he was referring to is the fact that Bitcoin and BNB token prices both plummeted in the hour following the rumor. With BNB falling by more than 3% before recovering into the evening. Cold blooded schiller tweeted, Elon changing Twitter icon. Doge pumping 30%. Alt season, CZ unprompted four tweet, Kobe tweets hash, converted as red notice from Interpol for CZ. It's all over. Welcome to a four hour candle in crypto. Greatest markets in the world. Now wait a second, you might be saying, what was that about Elon? Yes, the clown show was in full effect yesterday, and Elon was up to his old tricks. On Monday morning, Twitter changed its blue bird icon to the Dogecoin Shiba Inu logo. Dogecoin sword because of course it did, gaining more than 35% over the following hour, and getting above ten cents for the first time since December. Elon was very limited on details around the change, posting a meme and referring to a Twitter discussion with WallStreetBets chairman from last march, where they suggested that Elon should quote just buy Twitter and change the bird logo to a doge. Of course, part of the narrative around Elon's purchase of Twitter was that he wanted to change the social media app into an everything app with integrated payment rails. To that end, Elon has in the past suggested the doge might offer better payments infrastructure than Bitcoin. In January, the Financial Times reported that Twitter had begun applying for the

Well Friends yesterday was the first Monday we've had in a while where we didn't get actual regulatory actions. So what did we do? Well, of course, we had to invent some drama of our own. Okay, so on Monday afternoon, a rumor ripped through crypto Twitter. The rumor was that Interpol had issued a red notice for binance CEO CZ. From the Interpol website, quote, a red notice is a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action. Where did this rumor start from? Well, for most people, it was an encrypted post from up only host Kobe, which when decoded red Interpol red notice for CZ. So let's take a step back here. Last Monday, several binance entities were sued by the CFTC, over allegations that the firm had knowingly offered crypto derivatives products in the U.S. between 2018 and 2020. CZ, as well as another executive were named personally as defendants in the lawsuit. At the time, it was notable that no criminal charges accompanied the lawsuit as the allegations featured overtones of willful money laundering at finance. Still, for many people, it didn't feel like a one off. There was a lot of speculation that we'd see something from the SEC or even the DoJ to follow. Back a few months ago, Reuters had reported that the Department of Justice was split in whether to charge binance with any sort of criminal action. With some prosecutors thinking that they had enough evidence to make the case around anti money laundering rules, and others thinking that it just wasn't enough.

After Kwan was arrested in Montenegro, the DoJ unsealed charges of fraud and requested kwanza extradition.

"Doge pumping 30%. Alt season, CZ unprompted four tweet, Kobe tweets hash, converted as red notice from Interpol for CZ. It's all over. Welcome to a four hour candle in crypto. Greatest markets in the world. Now wait a second, you might be saying, what was that about Elon? Yes, the clown show was in full effect yesterday, and Elon was up to his old tricks. On Monday morning, Twitter changed its blue bird icon to the Dogecoin Shiba Inu logo. Dogecoin sword because of course it did, gaining more than 35% over the following hour, and getting above ten cents for the first time since December. Elon was very limited on details around the change, posting a meme and referring to a Twitter discussion with WallStreetBets chairman from last march, where they suggested that Elon should quote just buy Twitter and change the bird logo to a doge. Of course, part of the narrative around Elon's purchase of Twitter was that he wanted to change the social media app into an everything app with integrated payment rails. To that end, Elon has in the past suggested the doge might offer better payments infrastructure than Bitcoin. In January, the Financial Times reported that Twitter had begun applying for the required licenses to operate a payments platform and informed a small team within the company to build out the infrastructure required. Then again, the head of that team was subsequently fired by Elon in February, so who knows. The question then is, is this logo changes sign that Elon could be bringing Dogecoin payments to Twitter soon? Or is there another explanation? A fair number of people on Twitter suggested that the logo change was designed to overshadow other recent news relating to Elon and doge, pushing it off the front page of search results. Comedian Jesse McLaren tweeted, why do I get the feeling the doge icon was added so that when you search Elon and doge, the story of his racketeering lawsuit will be buried. What's McLaren referring to? Back in June, a racketeering lawsuit was filed by a Dogecoin investor against Musk, SpaceX, and Tesla, claiming that the plaintiff quote was defrauded out of money by defendants Dogecoin crypto pyramid scheme. The lawsuit made a range of claims about Musk's promotion of Dogecoin, claiming a total of 258 billion in damages. On behalf of all Dogecoin investors. The figure is triple the total decline of dogecoins market cap representing putative damages. On Friday night, Musk's legal team lodged a filing asking the court to dismiss the lawsuit, stating that the plaintiff's claims were quote a fanciful work of fiction. Over Musk's, quote, innocuous and often silly tweets about Dogecoin. Lawyers for the investor who is bringing the case set on Friday, we are more confident than ever that our case will be successful. So people actually in the crypto industry are not convinced of this. Niraj from coin center writes, anyone can sue anyone for anything. Treating this lawsuit is anything real is embarrassing. It is not, of course, the first time that Elon has been sued over tweets in relation to markup manipulation. In February, he won a lawsuit pertaining to a tweet in August 2018, where he said that he was going to take Tesla private at a price of 420. To the extent this reverse streisand effect strategy was a strategy, it appears to have been at least partially effective. Gizmodo is one of the few major publications that mentions racketeering in their headline and as another example, The Washington Post reporting on the topic has buried commentary on the lawsuit in the closing paragraphs. Now, of course, there is a third possible explanation for why the Twitter icon is now a doge. And that explanation is that a lot of the things that Elon does, he does not for some big strategic reason, but because they amuse him. And he looks for ways to amuse himself. And whether or not they get a reaction is in his mind sort of someone else's problem. To use a famous phrase that my mom loved if they can't take a joke. I'll be honest. If I had a gun to my head right now and was asked which of these three possible explanations, doge payments, lawsuit obfuscation, or just effing around for fun, is the reason the Twitter icon has now changed. I'm not betting on doge payments or lawsuit obfuscation. Now, returning to binance for just a moment, there were two actual stories that I thought were a bit more interesting. One has to do with their ongoing attempt to acquire voyagers assets in that company's bankruptcy. A quick TLDR on the background after Voyager went bankrupt, FTX U.S. had been approved to acquire their assets, but then binance U.S. came in with a winning bid, but the SEC filed an objection. That objection went to court, and basically the SEC wanted the judge to block the acquisition because the SEC argued some assets might be unregistered securities, although they would neither claim a specific asset to be a security nor explain what qualified it as such. That judge got extremely flustered with the SEC and basically said no, you can't block this because of might be's. The creditors deserve some recourse and so come to me with a real complaint or GTFO. Now, of course, that's my paraphrasing. The judge didn't quite say that. I've widely cited that recently as a positive example of how courts can be a counterbalance to an overreaching SEC, but obviously that wasn't going to be the last we heard about this. The government filed an appeal with the key dispute surrounding a clause in the orders which the government viewed as restraining them from bringing additional legal action against binance U.S. at a later date.

Interpol was also rumored then to have issued a red notice for Kwan's capture. After Kwan was arrested in Montenegro, the DoJ unsealed charges of fraud and requested kwanza extradition. Now it's important to remember that that means that the Justice Department had these criminal charges under seal until they had the defendant and custody, meaning that there's no guarantee that similar chargers haven't already been filed and just not revealed. Since the rumors of Kwan's red notice first emerged in September, no formal acknowledgment had been made, and the red notice was not published on Interpol's public database. Kwan had repeatedly denied that he was the subject of a red notice, despite the rumors, noting the lack of publicly available information. Kwan was initially detained for traveling using falsified documents, but reporting later confirmed that he was arrested to satisfy an outstanding Interpol notice which had not been publicly disclosed. In fact, according to the Interpol website, quote, the majority of red notice is a restricted to law enforcement use only. Extracts of red notices are published at the request of the member country concerned and where the public's help may be needed to locate an individual, or if the individual may pose a threat to public safety. Finance, of course, denied this. CZ retweeted an image of the Interpol website, which was photoshopped to show a red notice outstanding for his capture, saying, this is a photoshopped image four the four of course is CZ's way of telling people that something is just fun. A spokesperson for binance said in a statement to the block, this rumor is not true. Binance chief strategy officer Patrick hillman tweeted one of two things is true. One, it's bullshit. Two, a law enforcement agent is illegally leaking documents of a case file through encrypted message a la QAnon on GitHub, which is a felony and arguably a much bigger news story. My bet is number one. Now, part of the intrigue with all of this had to do with how the information got out there. Encrypted poster frequently used in the crypto community to make predictions that can later be revealed, with the favored method using the same encryption scheme that underlies Bitcoin, SHA two 5 6. After Kobe's encrypted message was revealed, there was some hysterical discussion about the encryption being broken, but later in the evening, Kobe himself gave his best guess of what happened. He wrote, have posted SHA two 5 6 hash of rumors more than 20 times in the last year without the secret being revealed. Point of a hash commitment scheme is nobody is supposed to be able to read them until after the secret is revealed. Looks like someone I discussed the rumor with, handful of possible people, leaked the seed to cause a stir at my expense, removing the context of rumor, et cetera, highly doubt any theories about brute forcing salt, et cetera, since no others have been broken, including the one I posted after. It was not supposed to be readable ever unless I revealed it, so sorry about that. Well, once again, narrowed down the list of people I can trust. Since tweeting only leads to bad things instead of good things, I will probably do it much less in the future. Now, part of the discussion here is a meta discussion on the nature of what is news. Eric wall wrote one, I see Kobe hash, two, I see Kobe hash says Interpol red notice for CZ. Three, I see coindesk article OMG, Kobe was right. Four coin desk source, Kobe tweeted a hash. On the other hand, I understand it. Kobe always knows things. It's weird, probably a fed. Kobe himself was surprised that this was treated as news. He said I still don't really understand why every crypto news outlet treating a sealed prediction tweet based on rumors that they already knew were circulating as news that needs responding to by binance, I mean my account mostly should post some hardly a reliable journalist source. French apart from the block responded, we reached out to binance before your tweet. The rumor was circulating before your tweet among very serious market participants. It was just your tweet that had market impact. Kobe responded to that. I think there's a pretty big leap from jolly crypto guy posting a sealed prediction to Kobe has insider info about Interpol. This must be news. Frank then responded again. No one reported what you said as news. They reported on the market reaction of what you said as news. If what you tweeted didn't move the market, no one would have penned an article. Now, I understand where Kobe is coming from in the sense that his message wasn't supposed to be revealed, and he's just a guy, so even if it was revealed it shouldn't have caused such a reaction. However, two things. One, it was revealed and it did cause a reaction, and two, I believe pretty firmly that in the world we live in, a world where consensus reality is pretty much gone forever. The way that people react to and discuss the news is a part of the news. If you'll allow me an aside, one of the things that I think makes the breakdown different is the fact that from the very beginning I've treated the discussion around the news as part of the news.

In fact, right now in a location, not in the United States. Are you free to say where you are, Eric? In Uganda. I would assume warmer than most locations here in the U.S.. What's going on in Uganda? So for the last year or so, I've been participating in a mentoring program training East African officials in the area of transnational crime. But bringing officials together in one room from Tanzania, Yukon, Kenya, to cooperate with one another capacity training in the area of environmental crime, wildlife trafficking, human trafficking, and of course those crimes touch terrorism as well because terrorist groups are involved in all those crimes. Are you aware of whether or not Russia is recruiting people from that region of the world to go fight in Ukraine? The Russians are heavily invested in most of Africa. And we know that the Russians issued a PR kind of video to American former soldiers to fight for the Russians. Well, one doesn't have to look to Ukraine for war. It's right at your back door on the continent that you're visiting now. Right now, there's 20 some odd shadow wars in Africa that the U.S. are involved in in Africa, fighting the muzzle and extremists throughout Africa and Africa is the hotbed of extremism right now. Do you believe the U.S. should be there fighting Muslim extremism on the continent of Africa? I think history has will prove me right only because Osama bin Laden initiate the planning of the 9 11 attacks in New York from Sudan. And we, the U.S. government under Bill Clinton, failed to address the threat and that threat only grew, of course we know what happened on 9 11 nearly 3000 Americans died tens of thousands were injured. We have to understand the threat here in Africa is real. It's ongoing from Boko Haram, ISIS and other terrorist groups are alive and well. And I'm very concerned that America right now is distracted what's going on in America. I'm concerned that we may be facing another similar devastating attack if we're not, as I say, switched on. And fight them here on their territory rather than addressing it on our territory. We haven't heard much from Boko Haram at least in the domestic news here in the United States. I recall there was a time when they were running around villages, kidnapping girls, and I think at one time had three, four, 600 young girls with them that they had subjugated. What's that organization look like today? Well, John, the organization is alive and well throughout Africa. The very terrorist groups are active here, very close to where I'm talking to you from today. From Uganda, Tanzania in Kenya. And right next door in South Sudan, the activities of Boko Haram and other editorial groups are alive and well. The government in South Sudan and the safe haven for Muslim extremism, unfortunately. We are not addressing South Sudan with a Pope was just at South Sudan as a safe haven for Muslim extremists. It's a nation without a leader, really. I mean, the leader is somebody that we propped up on the bush and the Obama administration. He is a dictator, conducting mass murders of his own people, unfortunately.

So you have somebody working in your favor to try to get you some kind of restitution, right? Hopefully. It's exactly. I mean, we are going to with my lawyer to put both who are going to take a civil elections and against the who was the director of Interpol when

"It was me who had more patience on the newspapers, more time on the news and TV than the president resigning. And I think the president returning is much more important and relevant than hacking the did anybody know the difference between all these people who arrested you and the people who said, oh, you're the hacker between white hat hacking and black cat hacking. One's ethical one's not, or they just thought it was all just the same thing. It's all unethical. And whatever name is a hacker is like the bad guy. Is that like their mindset? It's about all the things that found in my house that are towards that most good guys, but guys, we all have the same gadget with semi equipment, the same books. Along with the press release, that the police tend to after my arrest, there was another file where the person in charge of computer cancer Interpol was saying that when they stated this and this and this from my apartment, they couldn't imagine that somebody who's doing the right things a researcher could have exactly the same thing for them. The only explanation the only scenario was being in front of a cyber terrorist, which is very sad. And the fact is that they didn't know anything about my background. They didn't know anything about all my reports. People tell a pattern in their lives. And my pattern was very clear. I was always trying to help. I was always acting in a good way with ethics. And the accusation allowed that thing was completely not aligned with that pattern in my behavior. And not only that, somebody who is willing to commit a crime, like that, that's a report that problems in a system to then use the product to practice system. You just shut up and you just have the system. It's worth pausing again to go over a couple of these key points. So what are you racing? There was kind of a rush to judgment. And that being arrested in Uruguay and when you were in prison, that it was hard for you to get the lawyer to help you much, the judge, and then the way that you were questioned and what you had said, hey, I had sent some email. They just took that as a confession right there. So that was the first thing that I paused on when I first heard about your story as well. Because as you'll explain, there's enough evidence here or lack of evidence that should probably put you in the clear, but it just seemed that the judge didn't understand what they were ruling on.

Chat w_ Alberto Daniel Hillmp3 - burst 2
"Of your bio from your LinkedIn page. Oh, why do I can talk about myself without reading? I would be better. That would be better. Why don't you tell us a little bit about yourself? I know. Yeah, that's right. Well, guys, I am a computer engineer. I am my name is Alberto, first of all. I want to kill. I am from Uruguay, of America. And I am a computer engineer. I have been working for 20 years into information security in different fields, such as computer forensics, consulting, I have a BMP certification, which is a pressure management professional from the PMA organization, and that allowed me to lead many projects, implementing information security management systems, based on the norm, so I select 27,000, which I am also satisfied, and I am the first hacker in Uruguay that will seem to be, but that's not the main point, the pain point is that I was sent to research and for trying to help others seem to present without being guilty of any crime. And well, I am here with my friend Tony that I met on the address spaces. And well, she invited me to talk in a space with her and I'm very honored to be here today. Thank you. And I want to welcome everyone to this nice space. I see we have Jason, who I met also on Twitter space bunsen and beaker who hosts an incredible portrait of phrases. Make sure you follow. I guess he does a great work and also my good friend Jason, who is an incredible guitarist. He plays beautiful music for me and hi there. So she's just kind of remark the sky as we follow each other. How are you? And hi Mike, how are you, space Mike, and also let's say hi to mister proctor 31 and also to Samantha. Hi, everybody. Welcome to this space. And again, another disclaimer. We are recording this space. I am running an analytics on this space. So if you could go ahead and share this out and invite all your Friends, even if they're not seen on this base, there are people listening to us right now according to the software. I wanted to talk a little bit about some of the things that you experienced. But what made you decide to reach out? I mean, you know, they say that no good deal unpunished. Alberto, I wonder, can we talk a little bit about that? Well, maybe you decide to reach out and to help your country. Wait, do you mean after or before being arrested? Before being arrested, I mean, did you thought that you would get arrested for doing this? Absolutely not. It was something that never crossed my mind. It was something that for me, it was impossible that would never happen. I mean, if you ask anyone from my school, when I was a child, when I was in university, I was probably the most introverted person in the class, the person that if you have told anyone of my act Friends from college, who will be impression, if you have to do one person in the future, I would probably leave it the last in the list to be considered, no, never across my mind. And as I work in cybersecurity, one of the key things that we do is finding some problems in systems, you may find them in the place where you work and you are paid for finding them. I mean, that's part of your issue. Or actually, when you go to your house and you tell your computer, you can also find security problems in systems that are not under your control. And yeah, I did find a lot of problems in many systems. And all the time, I reported them in order to help those people that both the companies that are involved and the people whose information is started in those systems that are being vulnerable without wanting anything in return. I mean, there are no problems here in Europe. So you do it just to help you then get I mean, you don't get to eat sometimes I think in return, but I consider that that's the thing to do because otherwise somebody with bad intentions will probably find the same problem you found. And they will be affecting the private information of a lot of people, which I really like because privacy for me is something patients and I respect other people's privacy and I want my what I don't want to I don't want to be invaded by policy and my life is quite public right now, but I really think the priorities should be really respected. But I have reported for years not to accompanies to what I find the best, but to assert of my country, the search is agency of the development that handles all the security things that are linked to the government and to critical systems or importance systems such as America providers, for example, or financial financial institutions. And well, I have done it for years. And I never had any problem. Until I found a very important security issue in America provider that was the provider of my ex-girlfriend where she wanted to set an appointment in the system and she gave me a computer to do that. And well, before she gave me her username and password, I was already in the system with the privilege of administrator being able to see absolutely everything everything out there, the provider with the username admin and the password admin, which is something that is hard to relieve, but it was true. So I immediately reported that to the serve. And then I forgot about it because you had to report it and you don't need to get any update or you have to know how the incident is being handled and solved. That's not part of the report. You are just the person who reported it and that's it. And the year after that, I went again to a website and when you add in this field for so many years, you plan its mail when a system has security flows just by taking a look at it and you see certain patterns or certain indicators that the site can be easily captured to put them away. And again, in 5 minutes, I would say it will access to all the medical records of all the uses of the system, just modifying a parameter in the URL, which means, for example, you have a URL that has a number on it at the end and you change that number that you start surfing through all the records without being authenticated in the system, which means you didn't need a username or password, anywhere you could access to that information, just having the URL, and a report that two years after that September 2017 Interpol visit, arrested me, and I was sent to prison accused of having had the medical provider. That's what happened to me. You mean, they actually used the word admin as a password. They believe it or not, it's probably the, it's a problem that goes back to 19 60s that it was first pointed out as a big problem. And it's still 2021, but you still find systems that have the problem. And that works with scenarios that I have found in our abilities in systems, and Scala systems, such as those that controls the pump of the associations where you can access the without using even the username and password. The user is connected via template, and you can execute remotely comment to modify the parameters of the pumps in the gas stations, which is even worse that using admin admin. So I'm going to let anyone up yet to grab them I get me about ten minutes. I want to kind of like do some chat with Alberto. So Mike don't be upset. I got you. So we'll get you up here. 'cause I have a lot of questions to ask because I'm besides I want to kind of touch base on his books because I didn't realize how many books he had going on. There was a lot and it's on his profile, but he might want to take a look at it. But I wanted to talk to you a little bit about, I think all of us in this space, it has social network, right? We're all we have Facebook, Instagram, career, and all this stuff. And I've had friends who have lost their account, so on hacked in, they went in, they pretty much copied their account and create another one, especially Facebook, Facebook was an incredible place that has happened to a lot of my friends actually. So why would you do when you say Facebook is compromised? But what should someone do? Well, that is a question that somebody from Facebook should answer. It's a very frustrating situation. But from my experience, I mean, I have to clarify, I hate Facebook. So that's the point number one. I hate Facebook. So I am not as somebody who knows a lot about it because I don't use it. I have an account in Facebook. But I really refuse to do it. I don't know what they like. But when it comes to losing your account, I strongly relate that Facebook has implemented several processes and mechanisms in order to recover that. Such as having, for example, Friends contact that can allow you to verify that you are the person who is requesting to gain a gain access to certain account if it's been lost. So maybe you also have some kind of security questions such as showing images of friends and having to link them to names in order to prove that you know that people in order to prove that you are the person who is claiming their account back and I think that those countries probably work pretty well so it's not like okay, I got hacked and I have to forget about my account. The few places I know were sold that way, you should always have a backup email and to factor authentication and things like that. But that doesn't mean you are protected. If somebody hacks into your Facebook account, they can change up immediately everything that you have set for recovery, but nowadays all the systems normally requires you certain steps in order to modify that, for example, if somebody gets access to my Twitter account right now because they know my password, they will need my second factor authenticator in order to log in. But in case they get into my system because, for example, they still my application is still in the cookie station, not to be technical, means still in your session of the user. If somebody still starts cooking, then they take the account, it is basically Euclid herself in the pound and they can go to our account settings and care, for example, to change their password immediately, but in order to change that password, you need to enter the previous password. And probably you also need my second factor dictator. So I still in the cookie, which is the most. Easy way to still an account from Twitter or for many service because they're still in if they still cookie, they grab your identity, they don't need your password. So to assume to answer your question, just contact report that to Facebook and try to follow the steps that are part of the process of recovering. And you're going to probably. Unfortunately, I assume that certain amount of people are not lucky enough to remember that I found that I had to start from zero. And that's a big issue because the account that is being stolen can be used for I mean, they can contact your contacts and send them information or your reputation, basically they want there are many things that motivate somebody to have an account, one is rearrange another could be just to prove that they can do it. But the reason behind that is Ari, the fact is that you lost something that belongs to you and have information about you that you should be in control of and once you are being hurt, you lose that control and what they can do with your account is not up to you and that's really that's really something that makes you frustrated and powerless that something terrible. Yeah, I think that's everyone's nightmare. Everyone in this space I think we all are worried about that and thanks for sharing some of your tips or not. And I know you have your next year spaces your own is coming up at 6 o'clock, which you'll go more and more detail and I'll be co hosting with you. So also will be nana will be basically she has a lot of content regarding those topics that will be top in about. So manic with your will be co hosting with you. Samantha will be also telling what it is to what it feels to be had, how the life of a person is being impact when it is hard and her story can open the eyes of the people to know that if you have this really serious do anything you can to prevent that, but because when it happens, it feels out of your control. Your life can really turn into a nightmare. So you can really help a lot of people. Yeah, I mean, I just, you know, social media has been around for a long time and I'm one of those people that literally shared everything every part of my what I ate, you know, what I did, what events I'm at, I didn't even think about it. I don't have any remember four square or not. I remember just, you know, not thinking about it. I'm just always checking in, trying to be the mayor of a space, you know, like a restaurant or something, just to be there. And not once did we ever thought that, wow, someone could come through your house and rob you or, you know, still the identity based on what your profile set yourself up. So can you give us some little tips on what we should do from now on, especially now that we're also transparent and always sharing online? Well, actually, my recommendation is guys do not do what I do. Do not share when you go to Australia, take a picture and put afternoon Montevideo and I also put a time stamp in the pictures showing the data and the hour, don't do that guys, don't do what I do. That's no need to expose so much information allowed you. Everything you share can be used and probably will be used to, I mean, people are, as I said, the motivations for hacking are huge, but one of them is just to put that you can do it. And you see, okay, there's a guy that I follow that if it's a hacker that goes after people that are in the files, she hacks those accounts, for example, that hits motivation to develop those kind of users. Well, just the question is, what are you intuitive or in any social platform? If you want to connect with friends, then just create a private profile and connect with the people you know and you want to be in touch with. And don't allow any stranger in your network. If that's what you want, if you want, for example, like me, to be known and I don't know how to say it, to bring a message to create a world that's about certain topics and basically. Get to be known, I share too much information, probably, that I try to think about it in terms of cost and benefits are risk and benefit and put everything in the scale and well, I post too much information about me that I shouldn't. But I think it's worth what I get back from it. I mean, I get the attention and engagement from
Everything We Know About the Dirty Money Hunter Biden Received
"Way. Miranda, there is a increasing amount of chatter about the Russia Ukrainian issue. And it begs the question any time this kind of surfaces, what capital flows existed or exist between the Ukrainian government or the Ukrainian power structure and Hunter Biden? What do we know as far as money that Hunter Biden received from Ukrainian oligarchs, gas companies, and even Russian, as well? Please explain. Well, there's less money coming from Russia and Ukraine that's evident on the laptop and in the bob linsky material than there is from China. But what we know is that, first of all, that Hunter Biden was being paid $83,000 a month by the corrupt Ukrainian energy company, burisma during his father's vice presidency. And after Joe Biden's term ended, his pay for sitting on the board of burisma was cut in half and we also know that there was we actually know this from the Johnson grassley report that $3.5 million was funneled into the bank account of an associate or business partner, Devon archer of Hunter Biden, by Elena bacher, who is the Russia's richest woman. The wife now we know of the corrupt former Moscow Amir. And we also know that Hunter Biden met Elena batter just a few weeks after that money hit the bank account. He met her in como at village, which is a gaunt beautiful mansion hotel luxury hotel on the shore of Lake como, which is a haunt of corrupt oligarchs from around the world. And we also know that he was doing the bidding of the Ukrainian owners of burisma in terms of the owner Michael is logistic was in trouble because he had been the former energy minister of the Russia aligned Ukrainian government that was ousted by the maiden revolution with the help of the United States. And he was under investigation by Interpol by the British and in conjunction with the FBI. And they had frozen his bank accounts in London with millions of dollars in it. And in Ukraine, the chief prosecutor was also investigating him for

Data Ethics, Then and Now With Kinesso's Sheila Colclasure
"So similar to the brood x cicadas hatch of two thousand twenty one. The eruption of privacy related news has been in the works for a long time incubating underground for something like oh seventeen or twenty years before crawling out into the open air and swarming the earth in the form of privacy laws and tracking restrictions from the browsers and from tech platforms The companies that ultimately control advertisers access to consumer data at scale. There's insects everywhere. My guest today is sheila. Kaul closure sheila is the global chief digital responsibility and public policy officer at knesset. Oh previously she spent twenty one years at axiom and at live ramp prior to the acquisition of axiom by interpol group after that acquisition canessa was set up as a standalone brand housing. All of the axiom Sort of data services offerings As her retitled suggests.

Thank you zachary. I am delighted to be here and delighted to talk about this fabulous topic. And i love. The insect analogy couldn't resist so before we jump in. Just tell us. How did you get into this data ethics and governance game going back twenty. One years at axiom great question. well.

I was expecting better from these people hurt last night work Well, in this particular case, you'll see what I heard last night around, you'll 78 o'clock. That, uh, the Houston police discovered a man living inside the air ducts of a Wal Mart. You familiar with the West side of Houston? Oh, very vote. I were there right now. And I've never lived on the East side West West West side Wal Mart at South Kirkwood. I think I know that woman. Yeah, the police were called to the scene. They discovered that a man was living inside the air conditioning vents. So SWAT had to come because he refused to come out. They say he was probably having some kind of a mental breakdown or something and had been living in the Ducks for Unknown period of time unknown period today. They don't know how long this guy might have been up in there. The police eventually removed him and put him on a stretcher, handcuffed and wheeled him out to an ambulance. And that's all I got. That Z and this story hasn't been updated in 12 hours. Okay. Now a good journalist would probably be digging on this because this is the kind of interesting story that humans want to hear about. Okay? Yeah, I would think so. That's all they got. We don't know how long he was there. We don't know why I was there. We don't know who you know They didn't tell us, Jack. Crap. What do you think it smelled like his see? That's a story. You could get away with a lot of the walmart. I'll give you an example. The journalist have poked his head inside there and looked around, sniffed around. See what's what I know this guy. He's a little younger than us. His name's Alex. He's a comedian. And he were he. I don't know what he does for a living. I think he's a pizza delivery driver. But in his phone, he sells pot in his free time. No, no, no. He delivers pizza. Oh, you mean a real pizza delivery guy and then? Oh, well, I thought it was like in Jamaica, where you said they rent jet ski? No, no, no. It's like they They felt no, no. I never got a pizza or marijuana from him. Okay, I know him because of the work he does on YouTube. You know how there's two Wal Marts over there? You're talking about the one on the Far West side. You know, the one that's a little closer to us over by the target. If you go to that Wal Mart, apparently late at night on the weekends, that's a place where he has They do what they do those online sting operations with pedophiles and the good they should be doing that, and they have a meet him at the Wal Mart. They go online to, like, tinder and grinder, and they pretend to be a 12 year old or a nine year old or whatever. And they'll have a guy come and meet him late at night at Wal Mart, and then they're all there with cameras so they could humiliate the guy. Is this have anything to do with the law enforcement at all? No, no, just for their own pleasure. No, but they have well, they've gotten law enforcement involved after they busted some people, I think mainly they're doing Have for entertainment? Yes, on YouTube. I think one of the people they busted was like a school employee, right? They've made the news before for this. So I asked him might have been precinct one deputies who knows, man, that's a mess. So I asked him one of the people at the Wal Mart think about you doing this. You know, that's crazy. You're running around he goes. You know where there late at night on the weekends and The guy at the Wal Mart. Well, he was a young parent himself. So they just like the idea of us busting pedophile. Okay, So they said, As long as you're not too loud and obnoxious about it, we won't make a big deal. Go for it. So they've had they keep putting this YouTube channel up And then in a couple months, they'll go from 0 to 100,000 followers, and then YouTube will take it down. And they'll put a new channel up and in a couple months 0 to 200,000 followers on then you too will take it down. And I do wonder like I get it. Maybe you're not supposed to do that on YouTube. But in much the same way that the guy that works at Wal Mart looks the other way because they're doing something bad to people that are clearly bad People. Sure why doesn't YouTube do that? Doesn't YouTube look the other way? Well, you're not supposed to be doing this. Exactly. But honestly, the fact that you're humiliating pedophiles? Sure. Yeah. Does anyone mind greater good is worthy to see if I got this right? Google's, which owns YouTube is opposed to people humiliating pedophiles. Why? Why would your sympathies lie on the side of the pedophiles in that equation, Right? Wouldn't it be obvious that This is clearly bad. Nobody disagrees that this is bad. The only people that think this isn't bad are the people that are doing it and they belong in prison. YouTube says. You know you can't humiliate pedophile. Sorry when we don't want pedophiles to stop visiting our website, Pedophile Protection agency getting involved in this now, Anyway, Those videos are wild man. They're crazy to watch, dude, but people get really mad about it. I don't know. Yeah, people, people are very disappointing. Generally I found isn't it weird way you could get away with like, If you're a teenager, you can have a YouTube channel where you model underwear and put on makeup and sexualized yourself. That's completely fine. But if you make a video where you're critical of vaccines, boom, you're all you're done. You're done. Absolutely. You're gone off of there. If you want to have a guy what were you gonna say? I just recently read somewhere where Facebook has decided to allow people to have their own opinion again. Okay, So there is one new thing on Facebook that just changed. For about the last year. You were not allowed to say that the virus was man made, right? And now Facebook has given you permission to speak your mind If you think it was manmade, wouldn't you say? Aren't they wonderful to give us that when you think that Like you What? You should always be allowed to think whatever you want a zoo long as you're not breaking the law. Times were different. Then let's think about that Think different Now The virus was man made. It did come from a laboratory and it killed millions of people. So don't you think considering the fact that it was manmade? We deserve to know more information about it. You're not allowed to speculate about that. You're not allowed to promote the idea. And then one day, Dr Fauci went Yeah, Actually, it probably was man made and then and then everybody goes. Oh, Trump's still a liar and a racist, But now everybody else is saying what Trump said last year and it's OK. The president told us about this. Mike Pompeo told us about this. Mike Pompeo was the secretary of state, the most powerful diplomat in the world for the United States. And also the former head of the CIA, Considering those two things. Do you think what at his moment when he was in power? There was anybody that had more access to global intel than Mike Pompeo, the guy with his connections in the CIA and the FBI and Interpol and the British version of whatever the CIA is over there, right? The secret police. And the Kremlin and all these people that he had contact with. Do you think that he was wrong? And if he was wrong? How is he wrong? Even Iran and Israel agreed.

They're infiltration of their targets was as quietly effective as it proved to be it had for example been unclear how the handover from the sunburst de l. l. back door to the cobalt strike loader was accomplished and microsoft details how the threat actor obscured that handover as they accomplished it. Redmond's assessment of the salon gate crew is that they're quote skilled campaign operators who carefully planned and executed the attack remaining elusive while maintaining persistence unquote accomplished in operational security and adept at minimizing their footprint. In looking at the salon gate operation microsoft identified six techniques. Laura gate operators used to escape detection. They're worth reviewing first. They took care to avoid putting up the same indicators for each compromised host every cobalt strike de l. l. implant was designed to be unique to each affected machine. One of the tells the threat.

Group finds it worth expending second the salora gate actors took care to camouflage themselves to blend into targets environments the tools and binary they used were named and put in folders that appeared to belong in the affected machine they mimicked existing legitimate files and programs that they found in the victim's environment third before they ran their hands on keyboard activity which would raise the risk of detection the threat actors disabled event logging using audit poll. They re enabled logging once they were finished similarly. They installed special firewall rules before they ran. Unavoidably noisy network reconnaissance. The rules were designed to minimize outgoing packets for certain protocols once the reconnaissance was complete. They systematically removed those firewall rules. It's also noteworthy. Microsoft says the salora gate operators executed lateral movement. Only after careful preparation they began by enumerating any remote processes and services running on target host and they moved laterally across the network only after they disabled security services that might detect them. Finally microsoft believes they timestamped the timestamps various artifacts altered them that is and also used professional wiping procedures and tools with a view to complicate the defenders problem of finding and eliminating the dl implants from the affected systems.
