Your Computer Will Be Bugged
US Government and computer manufacturers caught installing hard-wired keystroke loggers into all new laptops!
The US government has admitted to spying on US citizens using the massive AT&T servers to log and record EVERY email that is sent in that country and listening to any phone calls that might interest them. Are you so gullible that you really think the industry that makes computers couldn’t be forced to build in these devices?
This Should be a Wake Up Call
Below this is the whole story from Current.com. The site where it originally existed is difficult to reach due to high traffic. I suspect the government is jamming their traffic since the story went up. Please share it and make sure to save a copy, as it’s bound to disappear as quickly as you are reading it.
Since posting this article, there have been overwhelming attempts to disprove this threat to our privacy - to the extent that I had to rename the link to avoid so many hits. To me, any attempt so massively designed to turn a credible story into a so called hoax is pretty convincing evidence that someone out there doesn’t want the truth to be known…
The KeyLogger business is real; Look up KeyGhost on Google... Do not trust a government that blatantly admits to violating the laws that provide your right to privacy.
Devices capture everything you ever type, and can then send it via your ethernet card to the Dept. of Homeland Security without your knowledge, consent or a search warrant each time you log onto the internet!
I was opening up my almost brand new laptop, to replace a broken PCMCIA slot riser on the motherboard. As soon as I got the keyboard off, I noticed a small cable running from the keyboard connection underneath a piece of metal protecting the motherboard.
I figured “No Big Deal”, and continued with the dissasembly. But when I got the metal panels off, I saw a small white heatshink-wrapped package. Being ever-curious, I sliced the heatshrink open. I found a little circuit board inside.
Being an EE by trade, this piqued my curiosity considerably. On one side of the board, one Atmel AT45D041A four megabit Flash memory chip.
On the other side, one Microchip Technology PIC16F876 Programmable Interrupt Controller, along with a little Fairchild Semiconductor CD4066BCM quad bilateral switch.
Looking further, I saw that the other end of the cable was connected to the integrated ethernet board.
What could this mean? I called the manufacturer’s tech support about it, and they said, and I quote, “The intregrated service tag identifier is there for assisting customers in the event of lost or misplaced personal information.” He then hung up.
A little more research, and I found that that board spliced in between the keyboard and the ethernet chip is little more than a Keyghost hardware keylogger .
The reasons a computer manufacturer would put this in their laptops can only be left up to your imagination. It would be very impractical to hand-analyze the logs, and very CPU-intensive to do so on a computer for every person that purchased a laptop. Why are these keyloggers here?
I recently almost found out.
I called the police, as having a keylogger unknown to me in my laptop is a serious offense. They told me to call the Department of Homeland Security. At this point, I am in disbelief. Why would the DHS have a keylogger in my laptop? It was surreal.
So I called them, and they told me to submit a Freedom of Information Act request. This is what I got back:
Under the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) the only items exempt from public disclosure are items relating to “law enforcement tools and techniques” and “items relating to national security.”
The real life implications of this are plain: Computer manufacturers appear to be cooperating with the Department of Homeland Security to make every person who buys a new computer subject to immediate, unrestricted government recording of everything they do on those computers! EVERYTHING !
This information can be sent to DHS, online, without your knowledge or consent, without a search warrant or even probable cause! That’s why this device is hard-wired directly into the ethernet card, which communicates over the internet!
I am not certain how long this information will be permitted to remain online for all the world to see before the government takes some type of action to attempt to have it removed from public view. I URGE you to take copy of this page immediately and spread this information to everyone you know immediately! The more people who find out about this, the more can protect themselves and raise a HUGE outcry to force government and computer manufacturers to immediately CEASE installing these devices in new computers!
