Ok....so the Army manual back in the late 1990's stated that the Russians have a computer virus (666) that feeds the human brain information on every 25th frame. It is said that this puts the computer user into a trance and once there can be "programmed" at will or even given a heart attack (killed) if desired.

This topic was covered in a book called "The brain has no firewall".

Here is a snippet:


According to Solntsev, one computer virus capable of affecting a person's psyche is Russian Virus 666. It manifests itself in every 25th frame of a visual display, where it produces a combination of colors that allegedly put computer operators into a trance. The subconscious perception of the new pattern eventually results in arrhythmia of the heart. Other Russian computer specialists, not just Solntsev, talk openly about this "25th frame effect" and its ability to subtly manage a computer user's perceptions. The purpose of this technique is to inject a thought into the viewer's subconscious. It may remind some of the subliminal advertising controversy in the United States in the late 1950s.


Here is a link to the info: strategicstudiesinstitute.army.mil...

f-secure.com says that there is no such virus: www.f-secure.com...

but my thoughts are that just because it hasn't been used and found by virus detection software, doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

It certainly seems plausible. Its well known that certain colors of light in rapid succession can trigger epileptic seizures.

"Photosensitivity and Seizures
Epilepsy affects more than three million Americans. For about 3 percent of them, exposure to flashing lights at certain intensities or to certain visual patterns can trigger seizures. This condition is known as photosensitive epilepsy."

www.epilepsyfoundation.org...

Nothing surprises anymore. I need to look into this more. Who knows what we are being bombarded with daily on the internet.

Well, its still better than NSA


I may very well have existed, but I doubt that it would do anything to the human brain.

I'm not a firm believer in subtle messages can do anything to the human brain.

I am not a Russian guinea pig or American, Never been subjected to those tests but...I can tell you one thing. Sitting at home all day the sunlight can mess with you.

Honestly it makes me sick. Not always but when am not working sunlight makes me sick,

So I can see why they would try light waves as a weapon

Well, having been hacked by a vindictive kid for no reason, I wish it were true... a Gibson-esque cyber-punk brain-burn through the net would come in handy ...every day.

I feel like I've been sitting in front of my computer in a trance for years. Now I know why.

THAT explains why I only intend to spend 30 minutes each morning reading ATS, and I'm STILL reading when night falls.....


Thanks! Now I have a valid reason for not getting the housework done!

Or create sleep agent's out of your enemy's own civilian population, What are the bet's this is not already being used by the west on it's own people if true.

They've probably been doing this for years.
Remember the TV show in Japan that was blamed for over 100 children getting seizures when watching it? Japanese cartoon triggers seizure
That was done with a cartoon based on Nintendo's "Pocket Monsters" video game. So if a cartoon can do that imagine what a hi def movie or game can do.



For example there is no telling what this video does to your brain.

Watch if you dare!!!

I think the question here is if this is possible at all. If it is possible, then it is probably true. I have no idea how that would work, though, as a virus. It would have to be a virus that also did not show up in your computer's control panel under the downloaded programs. When my computer got a nasty virus I found it through the control panel, and I knew it was a virus because when I tried to uninstall it an error message would pop up. In the end, I used some virus remover thing I found online and all was well....

Sure a program could be created that can receive messages/images from a net node somewhere and then insert them in your video buffer, maybe do a BitBlt raster operation at the precise timing needed and your antivirus program may never be aware of it.
Of course, it wouldn't need to be a traditional virus, a simple link to a Youtube or flash video imagery could yield the same results without actually being a virus and would be extremely hard to detect.

To detect it, I would think that one way would be to frame buffer say 100 frames at a time to an array and then compare pairs 25 frames apart for video information that is similar yet not anywhere near the content of the frames just prior and right after, if that raises a flag, look another 25 frames ahead and do the comparison process again, if the same result is found then the AV software can block it from playing or give a warning, etc.

Heres how we test,

Someone take standard video editing software, insert a command every 25th frame.

We all watch and see what happens.

Make it something simple and harmless.

Find out real quick its BS.

Same concepts apply, frames per sec, so shouldn't matter if its a video or any form of media from movies, tv, computer, etc.

The virus would just be a delivery method.
