SO..Spam emails often contain nonsense in order to try and thwart spam filters..

Search for "A hedge fund can avoid registering as an investment firm" ...in quotes and you find spam messages on a few hacked web pages from 2007..they also mention Soros.

Google (in quotes)
""George Soros seemed to be a modern Midas"

And you find stuff from 2007 and 2008...

Google (in quotes)
"Five British embassy workers who were kidnapped "
And you get a story from 2007

Here is a spam report on Google Groups Abuse in 2007...see familiar phrasing?

A U.S. based Web hosting firm that security experts say was responsible for facilitating more than 75 percent of the junk e-mail blasted out each day globally has been knocked offline following reports f

Two hours later, I heard from Benny Ng, director of marketing for Hurricane Electric, the Fremont, Calif., company that was the other major Internet provider for McColo.

Hurricane Electric took a much stronger public stance: "We shut them down," Ng said.


"We looked into it a bit, saw the size and scope of the problem you were reporting and said 'Holy cow! Within the hour we had terminated all of our connections to them."

The headers show it starting on Hurricane Electric's network. I remember getting much span with the same starting network years ago. Probably real spam.

On wikileaks search for "A Timekeeping Treasure". It's bizarre.

The email says it's from brooke@darx.com. This email was found in the source as well: eksgqot@darx.com

Linkdin shows:
"DARX Consulting Pty Ltd provides quality computer systems consultancy for corporate, government, educational and private clients. DARX specialises in .."

Great thread J&C!

It probably really is real spam...is that an oxymoron?

Anyway, as previously mentioned in the context of this being spam rather than some sort of covert communication (which is certainly within the realm of possibility), this shows that the mindset of the movers and shakers is to not conducive to good operational security. My employer has a better IT security policy than does Podesta and his circle of friends; and we're a small company.

One really has to wonder who else might have had access to Podesta's and/or any of the people who's names we've come to know's email. They were sending usernames and passwords in plaintext for goodness gracious' sake! If that is not done on purpose in entice others to try and intercept your communications, then it was done accidentally. I could almost see a case where you would want to create a honey pot and purposely leave it unprotected, but unless Podesta is playing a bigger game, he just does not have a clue as to keeping digital communications secure.

As opposed to secret messages that appear to be spam...

If gmail is being used for sending confidential plain text business mail then it is real bad. Even if someone trusts the email service, can everyone working there be trusted. No.

Look at the early days when it was found that the US government networked computers we basically open to anyone who could access them. Do we have the NSA skills on one side of the government and zilch on the other. Seemed so.

I think this makes the most sense. Kinda like the invisible ink.

Again, who were they hiding from at that point?



Maybe that outside people were directing what is supposed to be an elected governent?

Applause to all of you who are tech minded enough to dig into this. It's very interesting but this level of 'sleuthing' into technical things makes my head spin. I'll gladly read your posts, though.

Someone just setup this domain after seeing it in the mail. Why? Time will tell. LULZ probably.


My guess is most probably to throw off track the hounds. They could just say "Look it was created yesterday. so Wikileaks is giving you false info" ~ just my 2 cents.

This is a common way for people to communicate under the cover of radar. Craigslist is full of these cryptic messages

I found the actual source for these in a book about hedgefunds. (Finance-Investment-Stock-Trading-Soros-Unauthorized-Biography)
Looks liek a spambot just copied the text and becasue of the wording it made it on the server ..
www.scribd.com...

Full text ..
" On the assumption that only the rich could or would want to carry that risk, the Securities and Exchange Commission obligates investors in U.S. hedge funds to have either a net worth of $1 million or an annual income of at least $200,000 for two consecutive years, $300,000 for a married couple. Soros’s Quantum Fund has had no minimum to join, but buyers have had to pay a hefty premium to participate.

A myth has grown up that hedge funds are totally unregulated; that myth is not true. The SEC Act of 1934 requires investment man- agers of funds over $100 million to le information with the regulatory body. And all hedge-fund managers have been subject to antifraud legislation. A hedge fund can avoid registering as an investment rm, however, by limiting the number of investors to under 100 and by offering its products as private placements.

One big difference between Soros’s offshore fund and U.S. hedge funds has to do with taxes. The shareholders in offshore funds have not had to pay taxes on capital gains as long as a majority of the fund’s shareholders are not Americans. In some cases Americans can invest in offshore funds, but they do not qualify for favorable tax treatment. However, because hedge funds carry such high risks, most offshore funds ban-or, at least discourage-American investors.
As for George Soros, he worked it out so that he, an American citi-
zen since 1961, was an exception to that practice."
