I read some bollocks a couple of months ago that Wikileaks had released some horrible infection that will plague the world with viruses and spyware, blah, blah, blah. Scaremonger, scaremonger. Rumble, rumble. Nah, nah, nah. It was just that – bollocks.
Wikileaks released some spyware in ‘spy files 4’ which was the finfisher spyware used by a German european spy company that was selling info acquired (infected computers) to the Mongolians/Chinese etc.
You be the judge. How would you like to be a part of a corporate money grab, taking every last detail about your living habits? (bank account, friends, family, job, personal habits, shopping, political interests, sexual lifestyle, drink/drug use, debts, etc)
The actions of Wikileaks means something might get done about this intrusion of our privacy against a mafia of German hackers/spooks working for the government.
The German hackers did it because they needed money.
Wikileaks released their spyware because they wanted to do some good.
There’s a difference.
