Well... as they say when the plot is about the thicken.... The plot is about to thicken...
It seems, and through some very interesting investigation through certain members of ATS staff and some non-resident internet security individuals,
that our friendly neighborhood Whispers is indeed back among us....
However, rather than just go off halfcocked spouting about "Its Him" I did take the time to do a bit of homework.
The name is questions seems to be -shhh-whispers-... and it seems he has been here for some time... if you look up his posts, they are OBVIOUSLY the
same posting style as WITD... Yes, the dates are awful screwy (which certainly raises a lot of questions in themselves)...

DoD Network Information Center
XXXX Science Applications Ct
M/S XX XX
Vienna, VA, XXXXX-XXXX
(modified on purpose)
I then contacted a personal friend (who has never visited ATS) who is an internet security professional... and this is what he had to say on the
I did some nosing around on the IPs you sent me. What's going on?? This isn't your ordinary hacker MO, so I know this isn't really about somebody
doing a little defacing. Tell me what you can, because now I'm curious.
I'll be honest. I'm not sure how much information I can/will give you.
Rough traces, these fellas. I don't see any evidence of spoofing, and that concerns me. You could be getting in over your head here.
Alright, I'll say this (and no more!)
Whoever this person is, they're damned good at security and on a protected network. Chased the conn down through a few countries, but they're all
resolving to a direct high-level governmental/military backbone connect in the immediate vicinity of Washington.
You owe me one, man. It's a good thing I did this from home.
Now, do we REALLY think this is a hoaxing hacker???
