Bin Laden's PC porn: USB memory

Spencer Ackerman

Otama Bin Radin's analysis of hard disks and record devices has announced that it has been given a fairly detailed instructions from a retreat in Pakistan's avotobad.However, the suspect has been living for many years to avoid the Internet and telephone network.How was he giving instructions to the outside world?

If you want to send a message to the operative, you've created a message on a personal computer, transferred the document to a USB memory, and handed it to the contact.The U.S. government authorities said that in response to the AP communication, the liaisoner went to the "Far Internet Cafe", inserted the USB memory into the USB port of the computer, and sent the message of Bin Radin by e -mail.Explain.

This has security defects.A dangerous worm may be lurking in the Internet cafe in Pakistan.It may be infected with USB memory and enter Bin Radin's computer.

The U.S. military temporarily banned the remove media after the worm spread from the USB memory to the military secure network (then the ban was released and banned again).The Pentagon claims this is a foreign spy attack.

It is unlikely that the US National Security Bureau (NSA) did not monitor Pakistan's Internet cafes or suspicious IP addresses.There is no US intelligence agent who can release viruses.

This would have been safer.Create an inconvenient dummy account such as "Catlover622@Webmail" in a web -based system and pass the password to the necessary intelligence.Send the message to the non -existent address and log in to each and read the bounce email.

By the way, the intelligence officials seemed to have discovered that they were investigating the contents of the seized Bin Radin's hard disk.REUTERS reports with a wonderful calmness."Radin's hideaway in Pakistan's avota bird, a modernly recorded video, was found in a large amount of pornography."Taka is unknown]

If this is one of the CIA's information operations (although not), it would be quite influential.Bin Radin has had a public image of a religious and violent Islamic rebellion leader.On Twitter, the hashtag "#BinLadenPr0N" with this parody has already appeared.
