  1. It really sounds like a game, the auction will end when they determine it? So if the auction never ends then they do not have to provide anything? But meanwhile, they take all of the Bitcoins since they are forfeited. I call BS on the situation.

  2. I wonder if this includes the program for their super spy computer, and the backdoors into CO equipment used for sniffing all internet traffic.

  3. The NSA website was offline for almost a day Monday into Tuesday for an internal review, i am one of the people that believes that the internet can not really be made secure, it was designed to be redundant, not secure. If the NSA was hacked, that lends credence to my opinion, though I am open to proof that it can be made a secure medium. If you have data, or systems, that you could not afford to have hacked, don’t connect them to the internet. I begin every computer security class I teach with a slide with this quote from Robert Morris, “The three golden rules to ensure computer security are: do not own a computer; do not power it on; and do not use it.”

  4. I admit that an air gap is not all that perfect, just ask the Iranians, but I have a friend who works for a regional bank, he’s their Excel (formerly Lotus) expert. He needed to take a copy of a workbook to a presentation, when he plugged in his flash drive, his computer locked up and he received a call from IT asking him what he was doing.

  5. What i found interesting in their message is that the missing words seem to be easily identified…also their correct use of the word THEIR seems to be a mistake. Most people that can’t write english will almost always never use THEIR,THEY’RE or THERE correctly… here is the message with correct grammer:
    “We want TO make sure THAT THE Wealthy Elite recognizes the danger OF cyber weapons, this message, AND our auction, poses to their wealth and control. Let us spell out for YOU Elites. Your wealth and control depends on electronic data. You see what THE “Equation Group” can do. You see what THE cryptolockers and stuxnet can do. You see THE free files we give (YOU) for free. You see THE attacks on banks and SWIFT in THE news. Maybe there is AN Equation Group version of cryptolocker AND stuxnet for banks and THE financial systems? If (THE) Equation Group loses control of cyber weapons, who else WILL lose or find cyber weapons? If electronic data goES bye-bye where DOES THAT leave THE Wealthy Elites? Maybe with THE dumb cattle? “Do you feel in charge?” Wealthy Elites, IF you send bitcoins, I IF you bid in THE auction, maybe IT WILL BE A big advantage for you?
    Just my thoughts….

  6. Hey I got an email from them the other day, informed me that some African prince had died and left me his estate…..all they needed was my bank numbers.

  7. They should try the ol’ “Last Chance to Send in Your Bitcoin” ruse. Much simpler and they’ll probably make just as much.
