if the plant who gave this file to wikileaks is some dunce high school corporal, i doubt he would have access to secret obama files. but the u.s. military is so huge and so understaffed with quality personal that it could be possible for some low ranking soldier to have access to super secret earth changing information. i bet if you bought a surplus army officer uniform and strolled on base no one would give you a second look. i would hate to be the founder of wikileaks because obama looks like the kind of vindictive snake that would send a cia assassination team after him.

Anyone with programming knowledge thought of making a giant program that connects to the internet with other pieces of itself and brute forces it? The program could be made so that already entered passwords across the system wouldn't be reentered, maximizing the potential of the password being correct.

I'm not sure how this would work out, but it seems interesting. What is the legality of opening an encrypted file if you don't know what it is, and it is just sitting there in plane sight?

I really wish I had a way to learn more about computers.

Develop a SETI like program to decrypt it
Would be slightly funny. Would that even do it with that kind of computer power?

No clue. Depends on the number of computers I guess.

Edit to add: I don't think opening it would be possible with a brute force attack.

This free encryption service (truecrypt) couldn't even be broken by the FBI to get the information from it.

Here is more info on truecrypt. en.wikipedia.org...

When all is said and done I hope this insurance is better than Obamacare.

Especially for those who can't afford coverage.

Anyone else saw on the news today that Assange said they were about to release tons more stuff including lots of PB information?

I want to know.. what do people usually use to try to break these encryptions? Supercomputers I am sure.. but how do they do it.. do they use a single computer?

I think if the government used very many networked super computers they could break this encryption pretty fast. I have read that when you network computers to work on a single task they make one huge almost unlimited in processing power mega super computer.

I believe the last one was called Deep Thought. :LOL:

I think this file could be a dummy file to make the gov spend millions of dollars trying to decrypt it and worry their asses off while they release the real info.

Isn't there a law against having and making encryption software the government cannot crack? I read about that a while back.

This attack clearly endangers all practical applications where an attacker can halt the computer in the middle of the execution of an encryption routine, apply the specific diference ± to the state, and roll back the interrupted encryption and obtain the modifed plaintext p¤.-

Does this mean nothings safe from being cracked now?

wierd

this HACKER talks like he knows manning

I mean, come on ... it looks like this manning history is just a cover up to make it look like they found the source

impossible to believe the HACKER would know all that ....come on


Not grandstanding or anything, but there's a lot more to this whole story than this decrypted file. For those interested, I would, at the least, suggest reading the Wikipedia articles not just on Wikileaks and Assange, but also Bradley Manning, Adrian Lamo, Cryptome, etc. Wired magazine also plays a part in this saga.

The hacker you are referring to talks like he knows Manning because he most assuredly does. The two of them have a story (which I looked into a little in the following thread: A New Twist To The Wikileaks-Manning-Lamo Leak Situation).

In case you didn't know: Lamo was a confidant of Manning's as he struggled with whether to blow any whistles. Also, Lamo is who is responsible for turning Manning in and getting him arrested.

That's akin to a law against having a conversation that the government can't hear, or owning a safe the government can't open.

rather than the unhackable content of the 1.4Gig "insurance" file, the more pressing question has to be,

"Julian Assange, are you safe and well?"

Has anyone tried 'No more secrets' (Sneakers) as the key?

If that doesn't work, we could always transmit the file into space and attach a note asking for help cracking it!

If it works, do you think the'ds finally agree to hold up their end of the bargan about all that "peace on earth and goodwill among men" stuff?

Yes, it's coming down on my uTorrent now. It's a large file, so it's a long download (24-ish hours). uTorrent estimating 4.5 hours left!

What kind of connection do you have lol?

I downloaded it in about 20 minutes, good seeding (couldn't resist downloading it, yet it's just taking up space
)

A file of that size has to contain a lot of video, it would take an enormous amount of text to make an archive (which is surely compressed) that large. I suspect it may be an archive of EVERYTHING that wikileaks has. Their entire database, website, etc. This way if they try to shut them down, everyone who downloaded the archive has a copy.

Rewatch the movie, it was "too many secrets"
