This is a nice overview of the design philosophy behind nym servers and the alt.anonymous.messages (AAM) newsgroup. It discusses the outlines of the SOP of a group of child pornography traders. This group was penetrated by the Feds after they busted one guy, and despite their participation in the group for 18 months they were unable to capture everyone. Most notably, the group’s leader (who strictly adhered to the SOP) was able to avoid capture.
This demonstrates the power of a strong counterintelligence SOP. The security practices of this group are something that clandestine groups should aspire to; the ability to operate successfully even when thoroughly compromised by the adversary.
It goes without saying, of course, that I am not in favor of child pornography (just as I am not in favor of terrorists). My interest is purely in the operational details, and the underlying principles.
You know how when you know you’re about to die, and you grasp whatever oxygen left just to survive another second? It’s the same with Lionel today, he wrote a blogpost which was supposed to bring people to visit his site, but let’s just not to that, I’ve posted it below.
Well now, we have been caught and about time too, so to Harinder Singh.. Thank you for catching us. As you all know SWEET YOUNG MALAYSIAN GIRLS was the talk of the internet and even on the newspaper for the past two days. And we confess that Iwe were experimenting with all of you, friends, acquaintances and such.
This experiment began in late August where a three month testing to see was the impact our non-sexual blog could do to the masses. The malaysian masses to be precised.
Our objectives was to see how fast we could make enemies and have my friends turn against me. At the same time I wanted to see who would defend me. The ratio of enemies made to friends who turned against us to friends who defended our action was at 10:3:1 during the first day of the incident.
Of course we must not forget the ignorant who has all the evidence but still believes or vice versa
Though we did make a press statement that we did not contribute, which is true. However, we did lie about our involvement in it. Images was sourced from tumblr and then redistributed back to the blog. Whether you want to believe in us or not is a different subject matter altogether but it was an integral part with what we are doing.
Then the posting began and since the source had names in it, we use the names and use tags that should drag in people to see. For the first two months it did not work at all. We needed something big something that could make a difference. It hit us like a cannonball, what we lack was a name to associate with, a reputation of sorts. Not just any reputation but one that has a big impact in the malaysian social media scene.
Serge Norguard of Dustyhawk who had been in the scene for ten years plus. What better name to use than his? No one, so we place him as a contributor and place a hyperlink to his blog. Unfortunately nothing happen. Then in the last 96 hours, we were bombarded with loads of stats and demands from people that we did not know to take down the website.
Eventually we did take down the website and then place a faux press statement. A statement to deny our involvement in it. Of course we lied in our statement and when the time was right, we deployed a video that we knew it will be the death of us. That video in general was to show that we were not involved but we still let that part of the autocomplete to show.
And then all hell breaks loose. With the result that we have gotten we can say that nearly all are lemmings and have a herd mentality. We also discovered that many of you have fallacies of the following categories during the first few hours of discovering the blog site.
Argument from ignorance All of you assume we were guilty because of the link at the footer that pointed back to this website. You all ignored the fact that it was a link and could have been placed to put blame on the person involved. Because it has not been proven false or true, the people was split into two. The one who believed that we are the contributor and those who did not.
Argument from (personal) incredulity (divine fallacy, appeal to common sense) Common sense would have stated that we would not do such a thing because we have been good for ten over years. If you have been following this blog you will know that we never once tell our true self. Also if you have seen us in real life, we rarely talk about our self. Therefore, we give a falsehood of us being good.
Ecological fallacy – With our Internet Babes (now removed), all of you assumed that we were the contributors based solely upon what was seen and collected. Kinda like how we say that all Indians are good and lying because how fast their tongues twist and turn when speaking their mother tongue.
Cherry picking (suppressed evidence, incomplete evidence) / Association fallacy act of pointing at individual cases or data that seem to confirm a particular position, while ignoring a significant portion of related cases or data that may contradict that position. Because of my confession that i love young girls, all of you cherry picked that i was the culprit.
From a blog standpoint, this site has received an average of 15000 views, a sudden increase in comments where we usually get none.. we now have 10 over comments and all of this is still on going. It is true what Robert Greene said in his 48 Laws of Power Blogging.
Law 3 – Conceal your Intentions If you had known, this social experiment would have failed
Law 6 – Court Attention at all Cost Everything is judged by its appearance; what is unseen counts for nothing. Never let yourself get lost in the crowd, then, or buried in oblivion. Stand out. Be conspicuous, at all cost. Make yourself a magnet of attention by appearing larger, more colorful, more mysterious, than the bland and timid masses.
Law 8 – Make other People come to you – use Bait if Necessary Linkbaiting
Law 17 – Keep Others in Suspended Terror: Cultivate an Air of Unpredictability With nearly all the good post that we have written, you would never have expected this at all.
Law 25 – Re-Create Yourself As a blogger and we like to rise to the top, being in control of our own image as opposed to letting you dictating it. With this – we have created one of our choosing.
Law 31 – Control the Options: Get Others to Play with the Cards you Deal We knew what we were doing and knew that you would get angry. Who would have thought that you’ll fall for it.
Law 35 – Master the Art of Timing Law 39 – Stir up Waters to Catch Fish Enough said.
Law 44 – Disarm and Infuriate with the Mirror Effect The mirror reflects reality, but it is also the perfect tool for deception: When you mirror your enemies, doing exactly as they do, they cannot figure out your strategy. The Mirror Effect mocks and humiliates them, making them overreact. By holding up a mirror to their psyches, you seduce them with the illusion that you share their values; by holding up a mirror to their actions, you teach them a lesson. Few can resist the power of Mirror Effect.
On a personal standpoint, our allies of today are now enemies of tomorrow. This was a really exciting experiment and we love how all of you took part in it, whether you like it or not. We never did intend to have this experiment to blow out of proportion but with your herd mentality it has. So why didn’t we mention it was an experiment? By letting you know early on it was an experiment the results of our finding will go down the drain.
We do apologize for all the things that has happen, you all have been a wonderful audience and with that said. Thank you all, now we can start a new persona. To our friends who supported us but was betrayed, you never really knew us.
“I said in my alarm, ‘Every man is a liar!’ “(Psalms 116:11) Is David telling the truth or is he lying? If it is true that every man is a liar, and David’s statement, “Every man is a liar” is true, then David also is lying; he, too, is a man. But if he, too, is lying, his statement: “Every man is a liar,” consequently is not true. Whatever way you turn the proposition, the conclusion is a contradiction.
Since David himself is a man, it follows that he also is lying; but if he is lying because every man is a liar, his lying is of a different sort. (But the statement does not need to be taken as absolute; a man can be a liar without lying at every opportunity. It only takes one lie to be a liar, and even a regular liar may tell the truth on occasion.
Had the statement been: ‘Every man lies at every opportunity, and therefore not a word of truth is ever spoken by a man’, a case could have been made for the existence of a paradox in what David reportedly said, although this also would probably have a perfectly rational explanation based entirely on semantics.)”
Welcome to the liar’s paradox and read ad hominem too.
You know where he got that excuse from? A close friend of his, tweeted this yesterday evening. Not so original now, huh?
And oh, by the way, it’s actually The 48 Law of Power, and here’s some of them that you’re missing there;
Law 1: Never Outshine the Master
You’re done for dude, it’s now too late to actually apologize.
Law 4:Always Say Less than Necessary
Were you doing this, I don’t think so.
Law 5: So Much Depends on Reputation – Guard it with your Life
You clearly failed this part here.
Law 9:Win through your Actions, Never through Argument
Law 10: Infection: Avoid the Unhappy and Unlucky
You’re clearly following it very well here.
And there’s too many that you missed out, but here’s two for you.
Law 19:Know who you’re dealing with; do not offend the wrong person.
Law 26:Keep Your Hands Clean
To other readers, you know why he posted that? What did you feel after reading it?
It’s meant to make you forget how much of an asshole and douchebag he is, never forget a pervert’s face, they’ll always come back and fuck you up.
P.S: People run social experiment in a group, and they run it legally, douchebag. Sorry ass for an excuse. Also, people, this guy just admitted publishing pictures of young women that doesn’t belong to him, and some of the pictures are clearly naked. Why isn’t any of the victim lodging police report? Do we want to see him raping someone on the name of social experiment first?
Now, by the time I’m writing this, the blog sweetyoungmalaysiangirls has been removed. The only inkling there is, is the blog http://asians-in-swimgerie.blogspot.com/ which was linked to the sweetyoungmalaysiangirls.
This post is to serve as a trail on how to prove who is behind the blog, which we all suspected was Dustyhawk.
Now, these names and metadata is directly pulled from the blogger’s Blogger profile, and these are used to identify the blogger’s identity. Now how do we connect this author metadata to Serge’s blogger profile? With the help of Derrick Low from one of the many Facebook post, i’ve found this site where it list most of Serge’s profile, http://www.dandyid.org/id/970 and located his Blogger profile at http://www.blogger.com/profile/13917775209527018197, which list couple of his other blogs. Now, when you pull out the full size profile picture from his page there, it’ll direct you to this link, http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zAjD8D475AM/UmCuGxWaCRI/AAAAAAAAE3s/qYaWfaCqiIE/s220-h/socialmediaphoto.jpg which incidentally is the same link connected to the author profile picture in http://asians-in-swimgerie.blogspot.com. The same author profile and profile picture was also used in sweetyoungmalaysiangirls’s blog. The way Google works, is the URI for your Blogger’s account profile picture can’t be different with any other person because it’s stored only in your own profile. If i were to upload that same image to another new profile, i’d get a new profile photo URL.
During that period of 28 weeks, which were the phones were you reviewing and why is he not contacting those agency demanding explanation?
Why does he has pictures of naked young women on his own blog, dustyhawk.net?
Why do you have pictures of young girls on your Instagram? http://instagram.com/igdustyhawk
Sure you claimed that you’re hacked, why don’t you tell us the details of the device used? Are all of them same (which in that case, does it co-incides with the phone you’re reviewing) or are they different?
Why don’t you post a video screenshot of you logging to your blogger profile and show us the home page of your Blogger Home page here http://www.blogger.com/home?pli=1. Video screenshot to make sure it’s not photoshopped.
Now, many of you might think why I asked him to take a video when a screenshot was necessary, that is because I wanted his browser autocomplete to show me this, which is in the video he posted.
Sorry bro, my last question….
For those unknown, it’s the blogger admin console for those blogs. Enough work done. Sleep time.
Too often we are scared. Scared of what we might not be able to do. Scared of what people might think if we tried. We let our fears stand in the way of our hopes. We say no when we want to say yes. We sit quietly when we want to scream. And we shout with the others, when we should keep our mouths shut. Why? After all, we do only go around once. There’s really no time to be afraid. So stop. Try something you’ve never tried. Risk it. Enter a triathlon. Write a letter to the editor. Demand a raise. Call winners at the toughest court. Throw away your television. Bicycle across the United States. Try bobsledding. Try anything. Speak out against the designated hitter. Travel to a country where you don’t speak the language. Patent something. Call her. You have nothing to lose and everything everything everything to gain. JUST DO IT.
