I just saw these and was about to post a thread.

They look like some kind of hash code.

Hopefully someone a bit more technically savvy will come along an interpret.

 


From Reddit:


This is a 256 bit hex hash key.

It is likely the generated hash for a file/archive download. Basically, if you download it from the correct source and run a sha-256 sum on the archive, such as a zip...it would match that 64 bit key EXACTLY. If someone changed even 1 character in the zip, (like a bad individual)..the 64 bit hash would be 100% different.

Yes it's hex BUT it could be password to unlock certain files, or infohash (as user mentioned above) for downloading new files

Could this be a 'Dead Man's' Switch?
Did someone just kill Assange?

From elsewhere on the web:


>What does "pre-commitment" mean?

>Precommitment is a strategy in which a party to a conflict uses a commitment device to strengthen its position by cutting off some of its options to make its threats more credible. Any party employing a Strategy of Deterrence faces the problem that retaliating against an attack may ultimately result in significant damage to their own side. If this damage is significant enough, then the opponent may take the view that such retaliation would be irrational, and therefore, that the threat lacks credibility, and hence, it ceases to be an effective deterrent. Precommitment improves the credibility of a threat, either by imposing significant penalties on the threatening party for not following through, or, by making it impossible to not respond.

It's being said this could mean more files are indeed coming or this could be a warning that if pressure isn't taken off of WikiLeaks (possibly Assange directly) then something else will be released.

I was reading some people on Reddit speculating if these are keys to the wikileaks 88Gb 'insurance' file.

O.M.G.

You guys have no idea how big this is about to be.

Stay close to your computer.

Ecuador(Assange has Asylum in their Embassy), the UK FCO (The FCO promotes the United Kingdom's interests overseas, supporting our citizens and businesses around the globe.) and US current Sec State John Kerry (Pressure by US to force Ecuador to rescind Asylum)?...

This probably is leverage against a move against Assange???....

Wikileaks procures and releases dirt on the political establishment.

Speculation is - these are keys to WL's "insurance files".


In other words, someone may have tripped the dead-man's switch... Assange being the dead-man in question.

These were posted on WikiLeaks Twitter feed in general not to anyone specifically other than those who follow them. They have since been retweeted out and posted about on Reddit, 4chan, and thanks to IAMTAT, now here.

As to what they are for, they are likely used to open encrypted files. There is some speculation that they open WikiLeaks insurance files and if that is the case, expect more information to follow soon.

They could be keys to files that have yet to be released as well.

In any case, this is BIG.

Nothing on the MSM.

Is it possible they were hacked and this is being posted..
If they are keys to encrypted files, surely someone has downloaded them and can try these..

And if assange were dead surely this would have been announced with these keys.. isn't that the point of a dead man's switch, get them out and known as quick as possible..

If it were something scripted and tied to a " dead man's " switch, one would expect them all to be posted at once, or at least with regular timing. That's not what we see here. 15 minutes in between the 1st and 2nd, and 2 minutes in between the 2nd and 3rd.

Someone is physically posting these. Whoever these are intended for knows what they are, I'm sure.
