GLOBAL HACKER NEWS

New Tulipmania in the making OR 4D innovation? How some exploit their workplace to mine Bitcoins

BTC gold

Bitcoin fever has been spreading all over the world as prices skyrocket. As the purchase price and transactions of Bitcoins goes up, more people are needed to process these financial transactions via the block-chain. You may have heard to these terms as Bitcoin speculation becomes mainstream and covered in our local media. When you hear about bitcoin “mining,” you envisage coins being dug out of the ground. But bitcoin isn’t physical, so why do we call it mining?

Because it’s similar to gold mining in that the bitcoins exist in the protocol’s design (just as the gold exists underground), but they haven’t been brought out into the light yet (just as the gold hasn’t yet been dug up). The bitcoin protocol stipulates that 21 million bitcoins will exist at some point. What “miners” do is bring them out into the light, a few at a time. They get to do this as a reward for creating blocks of validated transactions and including them in the blockchain.

Here’s a quick summary of how Bitcoin works, it starts with Bitcoin mining:

“Bitcoin mining is the process by which transactions are verified and added to the public ledger, known as the block chain, and also the means through which new bitcoin are released.  Anyone with access to the internet and suitable hardware can participate in mining.  The mining process involves compiling recent transactions into blocks and trying to solve a computationally difficult puzzle.  The participant who first solves the puzzle gets to place the next block on the block chain and claim the rewards.  The rewards, which incentivize mining, are both the transaction fees associated with the transactions compiled in the block as well as newly released bitcoin.”

“Mining is intentionally designed to be resource-intensive and difficult so that the number of blocks found each day by miners remains steady. Individual blocks must contain a proof of work to be considered valid. This proof of work is verified by other Bitcoin nodes each time they receive a block. Bitcoin uses the hashcash proof-of-work function.
The primary purpose of mining is to allow Bitcoin nodes to reach a secure, tamper-resistant consensus. Mining is also the mechanism used to introduce Bitcoins into the system: Miners are paid any transaction fees as well as a “subsidy” of newly created coins. This both serves the purpose of disseminating new coins in a decentralized manner as well as motivating people to provide security for the system.
Bitcoin mining is so called because it resembles the mining of other commodities: it requires exertion and it slowly makes new currency available at a rate that resembles the rate at which commodities like gold are mined from the ground.”

Now that it is so profitable to buy and sell Bitcoins from exchanges all over the world, people are starting to use workplace resources to profit from Bitcoin mania!

Here are a few notable improprieties which made the headlines:

A New York City Education Department Employee Got Caught Mining Bitcoin at Work  It doesn’t appear as though he got fired.

Federal Reserve staffer caught mining bitcoins at work fined $5,000     The ex-employee, Nicholas Berthaume, pleaded guilty in October to one misdemeanor count of unlawful conversion of government property – namely, for installing unauthorized software on the server.

Today’s most egregious misuse of Bitcoin mining hails from Russia:

Russian Scientists Arrested for Using Nuclear Weapon Facility to Mine Bitcoins!

How crazy has the Bitcoin phenomenon gotten? A group of Russian scientists who were supposed to be working on that country’s nuclear warheads chose instead to use the supercomputers at their disposal to mine for cryptocurrency.
As you might expect, it didn’t work out well for them. According to BBC, Russian officials have arrested an unknown number of scientists for the security infraction at the Federal Nuclear Center in Sarov, a restricted area in the western part of the country.
“There has been an unsanctioned attempt to use computer facilities for private purposes including so-called mining,” the center’s press service told the BBC.
The supercomputer the scientists allegedly used was actually not supposed to be connected to the Internet at all, as a security precaution. When the scientists went online, that tripped a warning at the center’s security department. It wasn’t long before the wannabe crypto tycoons found themselves in hot water.
Sarov is part of the heart of Russia’s nuclear operations. The first USSR nuke was built there, and anyone who wants to enter the city must first receive permission from the Russian government.

_________

Lada’s two cents:

It’s rather funny, if you ask me. Told you, FSB does a pretty good job! I can confirm: Sarov is a science center for things secret and innovative in Russia.

On another note, apart form the usual human greed, there is another reason some Russian scientists feel the need to resort to a search for additional income. It is a remnant of the hungry ’90s mentality, even if this is not the case any more.

Back in the USSR Russian/Soviet scientists all made very good money, plus, I can attest that the mentality was largely different, and greed rarely made it into the mental frame of mind of most people, at least not ‘the all-consuming greed’ we are observing sometimes in the West.

But when the USSR collapsed, in the ’90s the scientists became one of the poorest classes. From riches to rags, so to speak. This explains the phenomenon of why so many Russian high-profile tech and science specialists moved to the West, namely US,western EU, Canada and Australia in the ’90s and early 2000s. It was easy for Soros and NGOs to seduce them with high incomes.

This situation is changing dramatically at this time, and science in Russia is yet again rapidly becoming a leading and highly respected profession. Some of these people were so patriotic that they never left, and that’s who preserved the great Soviet/Russian science and many of its still secret innovations, which, I’m sure we’ll be seeing revealed as we progress into the Age of Aquarius!

On a more serious Bitcoin note!

We have discussed the possibility of a bubble, how compromised and how lucrative Bitcoin, Ether and other crypto-currencies are in the No. 1 bestselling:

What We Discussed During Live Q&A, Best Question Kudos and What I Wish I Was Asked!

During Saturday WEBINAR 5: LADA RAY LIVE VIDEO Q&A Lada answered 22 questions (with additional sub-questions).

FULL LIST OF LIVE ESW5 QUESTIONS ANSWERED BY LADA

1. Lada’s BIG plans and exciting future events!
2. Are crypto-currencies money or investment? Can people pay with BTC if there is a collapse and bank holiday?

3.​ Will Trump start a hot war with N Korea, and is he now fully part of the deep state?    
4. Hi Lada, What is your view on the supervolcano in the Yellowstone park?
5. Lada, what are calibrations of Stavropol, Russia? Do you see the future of that area, including Mikhailovsk, as a safe place?
6. What to do if I want clarity on economics to pursue for my family in US who are aging and have different sorts of difficulties.
7. Is there an alternative for banks that carry our mortgages. Most people do carry mortgages that cannot be paid off for years.
8. While China seems to be rising, do you see any disruptions to China’s economic growth and political system? Any impact on the world?
9. Tell us more about the 180 year cycle and possible geological issues in 2040 to 2045 during Period 9.
10. How will the shift / slow collapse EXACTLY manifest in the West: as a spike in interest rates, sovereign dept defaults in some countries, big drop in currencies vs. Rubles/Yen, lower real incomes, unemployment, bank holidays, unemployment, OR will it be a soft landing/ replay of the 70’ties with high inflation?
11. What part is Russia playing in the geoengineering drive that now appears to affect every country? And what is the attitude of Russia on climate change?
12. You mentioned gold and silver should be sold within 2 -3 years but also that it may go up before it falls. When is the ideal time to sell? Also Real estate in Vancouver still rising – when will this slow decline that you mentioned begin? I want to buy next year.
13. Lada’s sub-Q&A on best places in the world to relocate to and live in!
14. What is your prediction on cold fusion and the future of energy?
15. Marc’s comment: I am now setting up a Trust in Switzerland… it is for projects beneficial to The PEOPLE of the planet…   Lada IS included!   

​16. Part 2 opened with a joke about Lada’s multidimensional haircut 😉
Lada’s recommendations on protection against negative and adverse energy
Lada’s show-and-tell: how to use Selenite wands and Shungite stones from Karelia, Russia
17. This is the question re. Oct 1, 2017 Catalonia’s Independence Referendum and the reason secession / unionist movements all over the world are on the rise. As I explained in the THREE WEBINAR SERIES, these are connected to the GREAT EARTH SHIFT and Period 8!  ‘Lada, I am Portuguese, and now here in the Iberian Peninsula we have “Catalunia” (Catalonia). Will Catalunia be independent? (I hope they will) and how it will affect all the Iberian Peninsula and also European Union?’

​18. Will Russia break in several independent states in near future? Will Putin still be a president next term?
19. Please Comment on HAARP and chemtrails, which are EVERYWHERE! I am saddened and depressed by the condition of the skies. Thanks Lada!
20. Can Lada elaborate on the revolutions she sees in Southeast Asia? Isn’t Period 9 be positive for Global South and Global East?
21. Dear Lada, How can we, people with ordinary jobs, children, dog, etc., rise our consciousness? As part of this answer Lada demonstrates how her Personal Calibrations work during consultations: QC, CHI and Soul Dimension calibrated! 
22. What is a Russian Dacha and why do Russians love them so much? Why prophetess Anastasia (The Ringing Cedars Books) foretold Russian Dachas saving the people from collapse 

AND KUDOS FOR BEST QUESTIONS & COMMENTS GO TO…

Since we had chat room and commenting open throughout the entire 4 hours of the webinar, Az and I have decided to select the best comments, worthy of our KUDOS! These are:

  1. Comment by Mark, who previously received KUDOS more than once for his great questions during THREE WEBINAR SERIES!  MARK: I am now setting up a Trust in Switzerland… it is for projects beneficial to The PEOPLE of the planet…  Lada IS included!
       LADA: Thank you, Mark! Very much honored and appreciate it!
  2. On a lighter note, ‘a purely 3-D comment from Ann (UK) re. Lada’s haircut,’ which prompted a cute multi-dimensional joke! LADA: Thank you, Ann, we did need to lighten up the atmosphere!

Best question KUDOS, in Lada’s expert 😉 opinion, go to…

  1. From Natercia (Portugal): Question re. Oct 1, 2017 Catalonia’s Independence Referendum and the reason secession / unionist movements all over the world are on the rise. As I explained in the THREE WEBINAR SERIES, these are connected to the GREAT EARTH SHIFT and Period 8! ‘Lada, I am Portuguese, and here in the Iberian Peninsula we have “Catalunia” (Catalonia). Will Catalunia be independent? (I hope they will) and how it will affect all the Iberian Peninsula and also European Union?’
  2.  From Polli (Hawaii, USA): Please Comment on HAARP and chemtrails, which are EVERYWHERE! I am saddened and depressed by the condition of the skies.
  3.  From Torben (Denmark): Dear Lada, How can we, people with ordinary jobs, children, dog, etc., rise our consciousness? As part of this answer Lada demonstrates how her Personal Calibrations work during consultations: QC, CHI and Soul Dimension calibrated!
  4.  From Az (NYC, USA): What is a Russian Dacha and why do Russians love them so much? Why prophetess Anastasia (The Ringing Cedars Books) foretold Russian Dachas saving the people from collapse
  5. From Eugene (Singapore): While China seems to be rising, do you see any disruptions to China’s economic growth and political system? Any impact on the world?

QUESTIONS I WISH I RECEIVED, BUT NEVER DID…

This part is something I hoped I wouldn’t have to include, because I did hope people would rise to the challenge (LOL) and ask me these.

I got these two comments:

  1.  OC 

    The webinar was pretty good and this was my first time listening to you live. I wish I was able to get an update on the German elections and what your thoughts are on it. Once again it was a pleasure listening to you.

    I’d welcome your question on German elections. Wish you’d asked it.

    2. Dear Lada, An illustration of the other side of the coin regarding China in Asia – not to diminish the great goals of in particular the Eurasian project, but to put a bit of nuance back into the reputedly win-win strategies… No Sweet Deal: community resists Chinese sugarcane land grab http://panap.net/2017/09/no-sweet-deal-community-resists-chinese-sugarcane-land-grab/. All the best, Rosanne

    Lada’s reply:  Thanks, Rosanne. It’s an interesting angle, and perhaps one day we’ll discuss the ‘land grab’ and other actions by China too. Would have welcomed this kind of question during Q&A — wish you’d brought it up. I have lots to say. Cheers and all the best, my friend 🙂

And the moral of the story?

Let me tell you a well-known in both Odessa and NYC old Jewish joke:

Moshe is praying to god: ‘Dear god, I always followed your tenets, always lived a righteous life. I have been for a long time praying for you to help me win a lottery to improve my financial situation and as a reward for my good behavior. How come you never sent me a win, despite my repeated pleas?’

And god replies: ‘Moshe, try buying a lottery ticket…’

So, the moral of the story: CARPE DIEM, dear friends! Ask and you shall receive! To win you must play!

Both of you were at the LIVE Q&A. Should have asked your questions when you had THE perfect chance! Some of you, who have ordered my consultations, know that I am very generous with my time, and always give you extras. You also all know how much I enjoy answering your questions!

The two questions about Merkel and German elections, and about the flipside of Chinese Eurasia expansion are the kinds of questions I was hoping to receive, and I’d gladly go overtime to answer these! You’d all benefit greatly to know the multi-dimensional perspective and my predictions for both. Now… it may forever remain a mystery, unless you order a PRIVATE CONSULTATION (New consultation Tea & Q&A with Lada Ray is recommended for global and cosmic questions, as well as your own stories you want to share. I also have a lot more leeway to share with you during such private consultation things that I can’t discuss publicly).

Next time, just go for it! However, you should have done it when you had the chance — as there may be no next time in this specific format! It appears, this kind of webinar may end up remaining a one-of-a-kind, unique experiment (one day I’ll reveal, due to what extenuating factors).

Don’t miss it! Order this one-of-a-kind, unique webinar, as there may be no other chance!

‘Petya’ CIA-Sponsored Virus and Ransomware (with 1EarthUnited)

LADA’S OVERVIEW

The author of the article below contends that the ‘Petya virus is a state-sponsored attack on Ukraine.’ However, a number of European countries have been affected too. What’s more, some large Russian companies were affected as well.

I think you’ll orient yourself better in what the latest Petya virus and its counterpart NotPetya mean if I explain what’s in the name. “Petya” is diminutive for Piotr, or Petro, if you wanted to say it with a Ukrainian accent — as in Petro Poroshenko. Someone with a wicked sense of humor named this new malicious, ransom-demanding wiper malware after the Ukrainian president. In the end, even when victims do pay up, the computer still fails to reboot, making it a total loss. Knowing Poroshenko, very close to the truth, I’d say.

A new joke in Russia is that the virus’s name is Petya, while the anti-virus is called Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin’s name). 

In conclusion, my personal opinion is that there is much more going on here than meets the eye. It is a promo for a specific new 4th Dimension MEGA-project by the global elites, bankers and related organizations.

What is it? I’ll discuss what I mean and make some bold predictions in the upcoming

Hacker News: Petya Ransomware “Wiper malware” is a state-sponsored attack on Ukraine?

petya-ransomware-wiper-malware

What if I say the Tuesday’s devastating global malware outbreak was not due to any ransomware infection?

Yes, the Petya ransomware attacks that began infecting computers in several countries, including Russia, Ukraine, France, India and the United States on Tuesday and demands $300 ransom was not designed with the intention of restoring the computers at all.

According to a new analysis, the virus was designed to look like ransomware but was wiper malware that wipes computers outright, destroying all records from the targeted systems.

Comae Technologies Founder Matt Suiche, who closely looked the operation of the malware, said after analyzing the virus, known as Petya, his team found that it was a “Wiper malware,” not ransomware.

Security experts even believe the real attack has been disguised to divert world’s attention from a state-sponsored attack on Ukraine to a malware outbreak.

“We believe the ransomware was, in fact, a lure to control the media narrative, especially after the WannaCry incident, to attract the attention on some mysterious hacker group rather than a national state attacker,” Suiche writes.

Is Petya Ransomware Faulty or Over-Smart?

Petya is a nasty piece of malware that, unlike other traditional ransomware, does not encrypt files on a targeted system one by one.

Instead, Petya reboots victims computers and encrypts the hard drive’s master file table (MFT) and renders the master boot record (MBR) inoperable, restricting access to the full system by seizing information about file names, sizes, and location on the physical disk.

Then Petya ransomware takes an encrypted copy of MBR and replaces it with its own malicious code that displays a ransom note, leaving computers unable to boot.

petya-ransomware-attack

However, this new variant of Petya does not keep a copy of replaced MBR, mistakenly or purposely, leaving infected computers unbootable even if victims get the decryption keys.

Also, after infecting one machine, the Petya ransomware scans the local network and quickly infects all other machines (even fully-patched) on the same network, using EternalBlue SMB exploit, WMIC and PSEXEC tools.

Don’t Pay Ransom; You Wouldn’t Get Your Files Back

So far, nearly 45 victims have already paid total $10,500 in Bitcoins in hope to get their locked files back, but unfortunately, they would not.

Meaning, even if victims do pay the ransom, they will never recover their files. Kaspersky researchers also said same.

“Our analysis indicates there is little hope for victims to recover their data. We have analyzed the high-level code of the encryption routine, and we have figured out that after disk encryption, the threat actor could not decrypt victims’ disks,” the security firm said.

“To decrypt a victim’s disk threat actors need the installation ID. In previous versions of ‘similar’ ransomware like Petya/Mischa/GoldenEye this installation ID contained the information necessary for key recovery.”

If claims made by the researcher is correct that the new variant of Petya is a destructive malware designed to shut down and disrupt services around the world, the malware has successfully done its job.

However, it is still speculation, but the virus primarily and massively targeted multiple entities in Ukraine, including the country’s local metro, Kiev’s Boryspil airport, electricity supplier, the central bank, and the state telecom.

Other countries infected by the Petya virus included Russia, France, Spain, India, China, the United States, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Turkey and South Korea.

How Did Petya get into the Computers in the First Place?

According to research conducted by Talos Intelligence, little-known Ukrainian firm MeDoc is likely the primary source of the yesterday’s global ransomware outbreak.

Researchers said the virus has possibly been spread through a malicious software update to a Ukrainian tax accounting system called MeDoc, though MeDoc has denied the allegations in a lengthy Facebook post.

“At the time of updating the program, the system could not be infected with the virus directly from the update file,” translated version of MeDoc post reads. “We can argue that users of the MEDoc system can not infect their PC with viruses at the time of updating the program.”

However, several security researchers and even Microsoft agreed with Talo’s finding, saying MeDoc was breached and the virus was spread via updates.

 

Hacker News: Original Author of Petya Ransomware is Back & He Wants to Help NotPetya Victims

petya-ransomware-decryption-key

The author of original Petya ransomware is back.

After a long 6 months of silence, the author of now infamous Petya ransomware appeared on Twitter today to help victims unlock their files encrypted by a new version of Petya, also known as NotPetya.

“We’re back having a look in NotPetya,” tweeted Janus, a name Petya creator previously chose for himself from a James Bond villain. “Maybe it’s crackable with our privkey. Please upload the first 1MB of an infected device, that would help.”

This statement made by Petya author suggests he may have held on a master decryption key, which if worked for the new variant of Petya infected files, victims would be able to decrypt their files locked in the recent cyber outcry.

Janus sold Petya as a Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) to other hackers in March 2016, and like any regular ransomware, original Petya was designed to lock victim’s computer, then return them when a ransom is paid.This means anyone could launch the Petya ransomware attack with just the click of a button, encrypt anyone’s system and demand a ransom to unlock it. If the victim pays, Janus gets a cut of the payment. But in December, he went silent.

However, On Tuesday, computer systems of the nation’s critical infrastructure and corporates in Ukraine and 64 other countries were struck by a global cyber attack, which was similar to the WannaCry outbreakthat crippled tens of thousands of systems worldwide.

Initially, a new variant of Petya ransomware, NotPetya, was blamed for infecting systems worldwide, but later, the NotPetya story took an interesting turn.

Yesterday, it researchers found that NotPetya is not a ransomware, rather it’s a wiper malware that wipes systems outright, destroying all records from the targeted systems.

NotPetya also uses NSA’s leaked Windows hacking exploit EternalBlue and EternalRomance to rapidly spread within the network, and WMIC and PSEXEC tools to remotely execute malware on the machines.

Experts even believe the real attack has been disguised to divert world’s attention from a state-sponsored attack to a malware outbreak.The source code to Petya has never been leaked, but some researchers are still trying hard to reverse engineer to find possible solutions.

 

Tuesday’s cyber outbreak is believed to be bigger than WannaCry, causing disaster to many critical infrastructures, including bricking computers at a Ukrainian power company, several banks in Ukraine, and the country’s Kyiv Boryspil International Airport.

The NotPetya also canceled surgeries at two Pittsburgh-area hospitals, hit computers at the pharmaceutical company Merck and the law firm DLA Piper, as well as infected computers at the Dutch shipping company A.P. Moller-Maersk forced to shut down some container terminals in seaports from Los Angeles to Mumbai.
