Hi

Many ATS-ers wonder about the contest of WikiLeaks INSURANCE.aes256 file - its encrypted and its encrypted strong:


AES has a fixed block size of 128 bits and a key size of 128, 192, or 256 bits, whereas Rijndael can be specified with block and key sizes in any multiple of 32 bits, with a minimum of 128 bits. The blocksize has a maximum of 256 bits, but the keysize has no theoretical maximum.


Wikileaks Insurance Aes256 all over Web


The huge file, posted on the Afghan War page at the WikiLeaks site, is 1.4 GB and is encrypted with AES256. The file’s size dwarfs the size of all the other files on the page combined. The file has also been posted on a torrent download site. et-spilling site, has speculated that the new file added days later may have been posted as insurance in case something happens to the WikiLeaks website or to the organization’s founder, Julian Assange. In either scenario, WikiLeaks volunteers, under a prearranged agreement with Assange, could send out a password or passphrase to allow anyone who has downloaded the file to open it. It’s not known what the file contains but it could include the balance of data that U.S. Army intelligence analyst Bradley Manning claimed to have leaked to Assange before he was arrested in May.


Assange said if he gets in danger the key for the file will be distributed all over web, unlocking the content of the file...

some 100 000 people are believed to have downloaded the file..its all over Torrent Web

my Q is : How many ATS-ers downloaded it? WILL YOU download it? Or you already did?

KEEP STRONG

THANK YOU

you mean like super, super virus killing many GOV computers, because TPTB most certainly downloaded it, too - to try do decipher it

I think the 100.000 peoples only include peoples who work for a Gov't who have the file. But in real numbers i think more than a million peoples have the file so far (many don't seed it so its hard to tell). But even i downloaded the file and i think many here on ATS also did it.

You never know, it could be something really interesting, if assange is willing to put his life in danger with only this as his insurance it must be something good (I hope so)..

I downloaded it last night.

*Mostly agree with the founding principle behind WL and thought I would do my bit to keep the file in more places.

Impressed with the number of mirrors out there.

Woot!! first post ever

Yeah I've downloaded it.

Don't think the chances of ever seeing the decryption key are really that high though.

How many people have the key? I honestly think it can't be many, that much information doesn't want to stay secret.

Not a hope in hell. As much as I love reading the cables in the news & ATS there is a real liability to being in possession of something like that. Rightly or wrongly there are people working on destroying this & taking down anyone who resists them with it. Sure they will not get everyone but you cannot rely on a "Herd Effect" type syndrome that you will not be caught. When the contents of this are cracked it will be akin to being in possession of kiddie porn. I think it's wrong to look at it that way but that is no consolation if they get you!

Don't know much about computer and hacking etc, but surely there must be someone out there that can crack this file, especially if it is available to everyone..
And the resources available to entire. Nations eg Britain and America, they could get this file cracked open?

I think you make a good point.. Like you I enjoy reading this stuff k. Ats etc..
But would never download it, especially if you don't know what it contains.. Very dangerous!

The nsa can get any password for any file. They could already in 1992 take all a persons memories, so they already know whats in those files fact.

Nope. I figure once the password is released, whatever's on it will pretty much be posted about on ATS.

Downloaded it the day it was uploaded. lol
And then stuck it in about 7 different locations of different devices.
and then removed it from my machine. lol

I honestly would not feel comfortable downloading that file now,
after all this time.

I mean,
Do you know how many people have that file?

No, neither do I,
But it is probably in the millions.
Or more likely, the multi millions.


When just one person on "our side" who knows what theyre doing,
gets the passphrase....

Everyone will have the infos. . lol

More than enough people have the file,
who can do something with it later on,
I dont really see the point in more people dloading it..
who knows what could have been done to it by now. lol

A huge amount of people who downloaded it will never get it open,
even if they have the code. lol

But,
I don't think the code will be released over this petty little bs made up 'rape' charge.

He said he would willingly speak with the police.
Not like they busted into his 'hideout' and caught him off guard or something. lol

big crock of turds is all.

maybe im just high.
er.. tired.
lol

night

I did not. Paranoid about malware and the like. Hope the password gets released ASAP though. We need to know what the deuce is going on.

Yeah, I got it, on 3 systems, a laptop and various media. I have had a shot at cracking it, but after a week I gave up and figured it would be a long, complex password that will take an eternity even on the mightiest of super computer, my humble little quad core would still be working away when our star goes supernova, lol.

I have a feeling that, assuming the file isn't just 1.4GB of absolutley nothing, the key will be released soon for us to unlock it, and like everybody else, I am bloody curious to find out whats got TPTB so rattled.

I don't think the insurance file will be released JUST because of the arrest.
I think though if he fails to be allowed to make contact or in any way disappears though, maybe.

I've got it on a pc NOT connected to the internet, and I have it burned to disk.
It's also on this one.

Adding some info - Julian said in that recent article where he answered questions that 100k people had downloaded it.
