WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 Password Is A Nod to Anti-CIA JFK Quote
On Tuesday WikiLeaks began releasing a series of encrypted documents dubbed “Vault 7,” detailing the surveillance activities of the CIA.
As part of the release, the organization posted to Twitter a password for “Vault 7” that read as follows: “SplinterItIntoAThousandPiecesAndScatterItIntoTheW inds.”
That password was a subset of words spoken by President John F. Kennedy 54 years ago, only a month before he was assassinated:
“I will splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the wind,” were his exact words, according to a Kennedy administration official who spoke with The New York Times for a report published three years after JFK’s death.
Speaking in a History Channel program several years ago, Samuel Halpern, author of “The Assassination of JFK,” claimed that the threat stemmed from Kennedy’s frustration with the CIA, which he believed was becoming a “state within a state.”
This is in no way related to the original topic of this thread though. This thread was about Apple helping crack their encryption. The tools we're discussing here were made for spying.
Honestly, I thought we knew this already. I mean, look at the safeguards taken for secure spaces containing classified info. No phones allowed, No wifi devices, no Bluetooth, No smartwatches, no NFC, no iPods, tablets, etc. It's not a production thing, it's because we know hackers (and the CIA obviously) have the ability to listen to your phone's microphone even when you're not using it, or open your camera, etc.
Also the fact "our" intel agencies are now using our tvs and devices to listen to us, to "fight terrorism".
Shows that the cure is now worse then the disease.
Never forget the thread where Falco brutalized all who stood before him.
Falco, we might never agree on many QB's, but we'll always have this thread, baybee.
