Blog Note: A View to a Kill? More often than not, it is a view of yourself get killed.
Thai Intel advice to the Washington Post is simple-get educated-for suggesting anyone to get into the spying business . That is because “Spying is a zero sum game.” To put it bluntly, the room for error, and thus a not zero sum gain, is being squeezed dry.
The so-called, “Open Source Intelligence” is where the real spying game is. And this has caused a major paradigm shifts in the game of intelligence. It used to be that those with secrets have the advantage. Today, it is not having secrets that is the advantage.
Want an elaboration? Sorry, that is a secret.
Well, just think about it Washington Post.
Like again, please be more cutting edge. Tell Thai Intel about the latest in the tools of “Open Source Intelligence” and like that will turn-on Thai Intel.
This bullshit abut spying on text messaging, is like ancient history.
Like how about this one-an ap that automatically post every text message on Twitter?
The following is from the Washington Post’s Urban Daddy:
Look, we’re not going to sugarcoat this: you may have been compromised.
Check your phone. If you don’t notice anything amiss, it may be worse than you think.
And it may be too late…
Now, you should know that right now this is only for Android phones, so if you’re packing a smartphone of a different nature, you’re safe (for now). But if you’re holding Android, you need to know the facts, and only the facts. Maybe you’ll be in the shower. Maybe it’ll be at a masquerade ball during a riveting tango that has you distracted. But the reality is that during a vulnerable moment, someone can take your phone, download this app, have it run silently in the background and then monitor every text message you send from their phone without you being the wiser.
Of course, you could always go on the offensive (it’s the most effective form of defense, after all) and use the app yourself to get the drop on any would-be infiltrators (you just can’t shake those seductive Eastern European double agents). And if things should start to get a little too hot (as they often do in the spy game), you’ll be able to deactivate the program remotely through a secret text password.
Speaking of which, this message will now self-destruct.
