Hilarious.

To the OP, and no disrespect intended, I hope your IT source has a real job. Why would the NSA even bother, really.....think about it. Your Internet traffic traverses NAP's all across the country. Why bother meddling around with a nobody's PC when you can sit back and just capture traffic an run it through some type of AI. This process has been well documented here on ATS, in fact its rather rudimentary. People plz stop with these goofball Windoz is haxoring my PC via the NSA theories cuz I might have uber government secrets......another nomination for above top stupid (this concept not the OP).

I wouldn't put it past the government. They've been doing these things for years. But what I want to know is if Bill Gates knows about this. He created this OS out of five dollars and out of nowhere the government suddenly accesses private information stolen that Gates pored his heart in.

who else here points there web cam at the wall when there not using it haha.... ya i border on paranoid


my IE crashes all the time and its a new computer, i also get warnings about the java script slowing down my computer but only when visiting ATS.
I'm not much of a computer guy but i do wonder about being monitored for being an ATS member.

Excellent thread! I am a Pc Tech/Remote Support Tech who specializes in security software, and I am also a very happy and proud Linux user. I have used many different Linux Distros, and for the past 2 years found my home with PCLinuxOS. I have just recently installed there "Big Update" which pretty much makes it PCLinuxOS 2009, and if you need a good distro that just works right from the get go, you really should give it a try.
And for those of you that are ignoring the OP's warnings, there is much truth to what she is saying, and there is no amount of software out there that will keep you safe. And I am not only talking about Microsucks users, Mac is quickly becoming just as compromised.

Any IT person knows how to disable this stuff. Primarily windows terminal service. As for the unlocker, UBCD, and UBCD4Win has the utility that will unlock any machine.

It's really not all that much of a threat. I always have the cd in my kit, and I assure you that it's not magic.

wow.. totaly mind blowing ok its not..

Pc software is based on the architecture of the CHIP

its got NAFF all to do with software its about HOW the chip was made..

and if you think im bull#ing.. i can post a nice link to the DIC hearing on cspan were he infact says ITS about who makes the chips

chip architecture > software >

No OS is safe becouse the chip artichecture came befor it.. how do you think they make computer chips??

software is 2nd layer


every pc can be hacked... EVERY SINGLE ONE .. end of story

i like windows its fluffy and i can play games.. oh and watch porn! not like the nsa gives a rats arse what i do..

A little while ago, I used to be against this type of "information".

But I am almost sold on it being the truth.
I know that Mr. Alex Jones has mentioned Microphones and cameras in Iphones, mics in TV/HD boxes. Google listening to you, etc. Not positive on most of that, all though I have seen so called "patents" of iphones with a camera in it.


About microphones in electronics, its sorta well known that headphones and speakers by there nature can be used as microphones. Normally, they make lousy microphones. But it is possible with expensive special software to increase the audio quality that the electrical effects allowing headphones/speakers to be used as microphone in order to be heard.


I dont doubt though the Microsoft/Apple/IBM have these Fed/NSA/NWO "holes", even Linux.

Man, the craziest thing I have heard about this was a local man who sued big local corporations and large corporations (MS) claiming he was targetted by them online and through mind control ads and stuff... I dont know much about it exepct it made the local paper once, and then was never heard of again.


But I dont doubt that corporations and the NWO have only ever used IBM computers to attack and enslave humanity. I feel pretty much all technology is ripe to be used by the NWO Illuminati against you if they really needed to.

hey dont get mad fella i understand what you are saying, but in the context of the thread/debate .. orcal is saying its already inside my pc anyways.. so im helpless regardless and that has nothing to do with "someone els" pillaging my stuff.. and yes it is private,, but like i said i have nothing that would interest anyone other than me ect.. so sure they can go snooping about but i hope my pc gives them a little bit of spyware aswell..

I can just imagen NSA headquaters.. OH BOB WE HAVE A PROBLEM we have malware installed on one of our machines..

I told you not to use the BLUEBOX to go watching porn /slaps bob about the head

LOL!!!

I thought everyone knew this already. If your computer is hooked up to the internet they can search you, no matter what operating system you have. How else do they find out that so-and-so has images of child pornography on his computer? If they suspect you they'll just search your computer. Locked and encrypted files pose no problem for them either.

No matter what, governments always end up tyrannical and unjust, using any means possible to save face, which is impossible after youve been labeled an enemy of the people and a friend to the dictatorship.

All 3 letter acronym agencies are considered by most real american citizens as criminals. unfortunately they steal power. hence the term steal.

you need money government thieves? legalise, and tax cannabis, stop playing games with our reality. Everything happening is a farce, a fraud and a deliberate game of conquering. by stupid shaved headed idiots with egos untainted by reality.

I too have left Windows in the dust, and tried most all Linux distros to find one that suits me...finally settled on PC Linux for it's ease of installation and configuration. I also did the big update, but wasn't quite satisfied, so I download PC Linux TR-6 testing and installed in on my drive. Works perfectly, everything works, and what a fast OS!

Here is the hidden NSA back door and where you can find it:


Computer security specialists have been aware for two years that unusual features are contained inside a standard Windows software "driver" used for security and encryption functions. The driver, called ADVAPI.DLL, enables and controls a range of security functions. If you use Windows, you will find it in the C:\Windows\system directory of your computer.

ADVAPI.DLL works closely with Microsoft Internet Explorer, but will only run crypographic functions that the US governments allows Microsoft to export. That information is bad enough news, from a European point of view. Now, it turns out that ADVAPI will run special programmes inserted and controlled by NSA. As yet, no one knows what these programmes are, or what they do. Dr Nicko van Someren reported at last year's Crypto 98 conference that he had disassembled the ADVADPI driver. He found it contained two different keys. One was used by Microsoft to control the cryptographic functions enabled in Windows, in compliance with US export regulations. But the reason for building in a second key, or who owned it, remained a mystery.




A second key

Two weeks ago, a US security company came up with conclusive evidence that the second key belongs to NSA. Like Dr van Someren, Andrew Fernandez, chief scientist with Cryptonym of Morrisville, North Carolina, had been probing the presence and significance of the two keys. Then he checked the latest Service Pack release for Windows NT4, Service Pack 5. He found that Microsoft's developers had failed to remove or "strip" the debugging symbols used to test this software before they released it. Inside the code were the labels for the two keys. One was called "KEY". The other was called "NSAKEY".




Researchers are divided about whether the NSA key could be intended to let US government users of Windows run classified crypto systems on their machines or whether it is intended to open up anyone's and everyone's Windows computer to intelligence gathering techniques deployed by NSA's burgeoning corps of "information warriors".

According to Fernandez of Cryptonym, the result of having the secret key inside your Windows operating system "is that it is tremendously easier for the NSA to load unauthorized security services on all copies of Microsoft Windows, and once these security services are loaded, they can effectively compromise your entire operating system". The NSA key is contained inside all versions of Windows from Windows 95 OSR2 onwards.

So go ahead and run Windows and Internet Explorer, and more power to you. The rest of us love free software and would never pay several hundred dollars for an operation system which degrades in just a few months. We can do everything in Linux you can, and much more, and we get hundreds of free games with Linux, plus the safety of never getting a virus, never loading up our drive with cookies, and a faster boot and faster running OS.

everytime i involve my self too much in corners of info that everyday people don't, my computer gets into trouble.


I knew it wasn't just me, or my imagination.

I'll leave it at that...

peace


I will certainly 3rd that. And to make matters worse it seems to go away when you back off.

This is why I use TOR and other pieces of software that I won't mention. If the NSA want my info they're going to have to work for it. Secondly, if they want to jail me, or treat me like a terrorist, then go right ahead. We all know I'm not, and I have ALOT of friends who would vouch for me in the public eye regardless what how they were threatened.

Here something to think about when you think of developing communication technology.

It was said by the lady in the news room at Roswell just after the crash, as she was sending out info on the teletype machine, that the machine stopped and then started typing instructions to her to stop what she was doing.

So unknown to her the machine could be controlled and monitored from a remote source. This was in the 40's and apparently the machine was made so that it could be controlled and monitored remotely.

Mhh paranoid, you are?

In my opinion, it's pretty safe to work on a computer which is not connected to the internet.
But if you are online, it's not a matter of what OS you are using. If they want to sniff around and monitor you, be sure they don't need a corrupt windows copy. Linux won't safe you. It's a pain in the ass, because many programs, drivers and games don't work properly.

Let me make one thing patently clear before people start getting wound up, no system is safe, including Linux or OS X. There are viruses for all platforms, you can even find a few very rare ones for mobile platforms if you look hard enough. A little story might put this in perspective, using the folly of the RIAA and their anti piracy tactics:

The RIAA spent a decent amount of resources and time developing a method to protect compact disk albums from being copied by pirates, once the system was finalized they began limited release of it on specific albums to see how it fared in the wild. Touting it as a nail in the music theft coffin they were soon shocked to find out that someone had bypassed their protection scheme with nothing more than a permenant marker. The initial track of protected albums contained information that would render a computer unable to read the rest of the data on that disk because the computer was under the impression that something was wrong with the disk. A crafty person figured out that if they took a sharpie and covered up where the data track was then the laser could not read the information and therefore would skip it and continue on to the audio portion of the disk, completely decimating what the RIAA had hoped would block copying of the protected media.


I'm using Xpantispy-Sp3 & ipfilter.Am I safe?I ain't got anything to hide anyway.
I have tried Ubuntu,and to tell the truth,it sucks.

Show me some proof Helig,that you can infiltrate my P.c.

I don't have to prove anything, the fact that your computer is plugged in and powered on is all it takes to illustrate that its vulnerable. Bugs are found, exploited and patched every day. All it takes is a clever programmer to discover one and leverage it without doing the right thing and notifying the developers to the presence of the bug.

@ projectvxn

I would highly advise not trusting Tor completely, there have been issues brought to light in which the Tor network is potentially vulnerable. This is a good starting point to unravel the story of the dark side of the Tor network. Even my beloved SSH is not impervious to attacks.

The point I really hope those who are reading take from this is that no computer system ever devised will be 100% safe, we bank on percentages that its unlikely to be compromised but we all know that eventually it will happen. Long passwords are used because short ones are easy to guess, eventually there will be systems that can break my 14 character alpha-numeric mixed case password that even uses special characters in less time than it takes me to login to a system. Develop a sense of paranoia folks and don't do anything on a computer that you wouldnt want the whole world to know about.

I also said I use other things. Things I can't and won't mention because I can't and won't reveal any potential vulnerability. TOR is a good tool in conjunction with others. but even the TOR website says that TOR is not an end all be all of internet anonymity.
