The increased connectivity of vehicles and medical devices will eventually allow fiends to kill via their Internet connection. IID points to remotely operated pacemakers and self-driving cars that could be hijacked.

El aumento de la conectividad a Internet de dispositivos médicos y vehículos, permitirá con el tiempo, matar a través de su conexión a la red. La compañía IID advierte que los marcapasos controlados a distancia y los coches de auto-conducción permitirán, literalmente, asesinatos selectivos.

Una Compañia De Seguridad Vaticina Que Los Crímenes Por Vía Informática De Personas Conectadas A Aparatos Médicos Serán Pronto Una Realidad

Los homicidios perpetrados a través de Internet serán una realidad a partir de 2014, según un informe de la compañía de seguridad IID (Internet Identity) que analiza las amenazas cibernéticas en los próximos años.

Según explicó el director técnico de la empresa, Rod Rasmussen, hoy en día casi cualquier dispositivo, desde aparatos médicos hasta nodos de transporte cuentan con una interfaz inalámbrica y, en algunos casos, acceso a través de Internet. La IID asegura que los delincuentes pronto comenzarán a aprovecharse de esto.

 

Rasmussen puso como ejemplo el marcapasos, y recordó que el acceso no autorizado a estos dispositivos fue demostrado en las recientes conferencias de hackers. Durante la demostración, un participante mostró cómo manipular un marcapasos a una distancia de hasta 9 metros, desencadenando incluso una descarga eléctrica fatal de 830 voltios.
Otra amenaza potencial, según la IDD, es el sistema de control informático de los vehículos, a los que teóricamente también se puede acceder a través de Internet.
“En vista del número tan elevado de dispositivos conectados a Internet, matar a distancia a un individuo resulta relativamente fácil, al menos desde un punto de vista técnico,” matizó Rasmussen.
La IDD también percibe una amenaza en la tecnología de pago inalámbrica ‘Comunicación en área próxima’ (Near Field Communication o NFC en inglés), a través de la cual se podrán llevar a cabo fraudes financieros  Según pronosticó Juniper Research, en 2014 uno de cada cinco ‘smartphones‘ tendrá instalado este sistema.

 

Además, los expertos predicen un aumento drástico de ‘armas’ cibernéticas creadas por encargo de los servicios federales (como Stuxnet  Flame y otros) para ser usadas en misiones de espionaje y sabotaje. No se excluyen tampoco los ‘hackeos’ de aviones no tripulados, lo que, muy probablemente, conducirá a incidentes reales.

The Internet Will Literally Kill You By 2014, Predicts Security Firm

Dec 20, 2012

 In a self-described bold move, the security firm Internet Identity released a statement this week in which it prognosticated that the Internet will become a murder weapon by 2014.

.

The predictions read like some kind of cyberpunk nightmare, with Internet Identity (IID) president and CTO Rod Rasmussen writing that the increased connectivity of vehicles and medical devices will eventually allow fiends to kill via their Internet connection. IID points to remotely operated pacemakers and self-driving cars that could be hijacked.

"With so many devices being Internet connected, it makes murdering people remotely relatively simple, at least from a technical perspective," writes Rasmussen. He continues, "if human history shows us anything, if you can find a new way to kill, it will be eventually be used."

.

The IID release goes on to outline a bleak vision of the near future. They believe that by 2014 we will see an increase in the use of malware in conflicts between nations; that there will be a successful breach at a major piece of infrastructure, such as a power plant; that military hardware, such as drones, will be hijacked with "real-world consequences."

IID's claims are grandiose, to say the least, but there is some truth to them. Cybersecurity is no longer an issue of hardened computer systems, but of an interconnected world of devices and services providing more potential points of entry – many of which go overlooked. Take, for example, Ang Cui who demonstrated how VoIP phones and networked printers could be used to remotely gather information.

The concerns over state-controlled cyberweapons, particularly those used by nations, is a very real one as the likely origins of Stuxnet's revealed. Concerns about defending the computer networks at critical infrastructure has been echoed by high ranking officials and even grabbed some headlines. And though armed drones, for the moment, are limited to overseas operations, their computer systems struggle with a very real (though as yet mundane) malware problem.

.

Of course, the problem with IID's claims about death-by-Internet is that there is far more incentive to steal and sell personal information via an Internet connection than, say, hacking someone's pacemaker. After all, a dead man can't continue to send checks to various and sundry Nigerian princes. 

In their statement, Radmussen comes close to explaining why IID's predictions are the way they are.

"Being bold is predicting the end of the world this week coinciding with the end of the Mayan long-count calendar as some people are," he writes. "What isn’t bold in cybersecurity is prognosticating the same old same old with more mobile malware, APTs giving cybercriminals backdoor access to their intended victims and even more data breaches of Fortune 500 companies as most industry pundits are."

More pedestrian, to be sure, but also more likely.

Following in the footsteps of IID my personal "bold" predictions for 2014 include surgical computer implants, cyber jockeys engaged in dangerous adventures on the net, electrowizards with mohawks listening to exotic computer generated music, and people with the entire text of William Gibson's Mona Lisa Overdrive tattooed on their body.

Lac-Megantic: Presidente de compañía dice que tren fue manipulado 

Lac-Megantic, Montreal - El presidente de la compañía, cuyo tren explotó en el centro de Lac-Mégantic dice que está seguro de que fue manipulado.

"Tenemos evidencia de esto", dijo Ed Burkhardt, de  la compañía "Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway": "... este es un tema que requiere mayor investigación. Tenemos que hablar con algunas personas que creen tener conocimiento de esto "...

El domingo, sin embargo, la compañía  emitió un comunicado diciendo que sus funcionarios habían sido hasta ahora incapaces de llevar a cabo su propia investigación.

Lac-Megantic: Presidente de tren dice tren fue manipulado (con vídeo)

,

Una investigación de la Junta de Seguridad del Transporte (TSB Transportation Safety Board) se está llevando a cabo para determinar la causa por las que una locomotora aparcada, sin tripulación, rodó cuesta abajo hasta el centro de la ciudad de 6000 habitantes y terminó explotando. Los investigadores de la TSB han inspeccionado varias de las locomotoras implicadas y analizan los datos de las dos cajas negras que contienen información sobre los frenos del tren, la posición del acelerador y la velocidad en el momento del incidente.

 

Hasta ahora, la mayoría de preguntas en torno a la causa del accidente, se han centrado en un incendio que se produjo en una de las locomotoras en Nantes, 11 kilómetros antes de Lac-Mégantic. Al parecer, el fuego comenzó después de que el conductor del tren estacionado, aplicó los frenos y se retiró de su turno de 12 horas de trabajo.

 

Burkhardt, el presidente de la compañía ferroviaria, mantiene que todas las normas de funcionamiento se han cumplido, y dijo que su empresa ha iniciado su propia investigación interna, que se ha visto limitada por las labores de rescate e investigaciones paralelas emprendidas desde el sábado. Él no cree que el trágico evento fue malicioso o un acto de terrorismo.

 

"Queremos saber lo que saben", dijo Burkhardt. "Hay una serie de piezas que faltan aquí ... pero nos gustaría tener una idea completa acerca de la causa. Estamos preparados para ir y hacer esto muy rápidamente, tan pronto como podamos acceder al lugar ".

 

Burkhardt dijo que alrededor de una docena de sus empleados, están en plena disposición para trabajar en la investigación, en la pequeña ciudad, desde el sábado.

 

"No me gustan las declaraciones que afirman que no tenemos gente allí", dijo, negándose a dar más información sobre su equipo en el lugar del siniestro. "Hemos estado pidiendo una reunión con el gobierno municipal en los últimos tres días."

 

Sin embargo, su compañía ha sido criticada por su respuesta inicial al incidente, y por su lentitud para hablar públicamente del desastre. La primera declaración sobre el incidente llegó 36 horas después del descarrilamiento y explosiones  que demolieron el centro de la ciudad.

 

"Creo que eso habla por sí mismo", dijo Thomas Mulcair del New Democratic Party y líder de la oposición federal, cuando realizó una gira por la ciudad el domingo.

 

 

A su vez, François Legault, director del partido provincial “Coalition Avenir Québec” y ex presidente de Air Transat, también intervino el lunes señalando la responsabilidad corporativa. "En un desastre", dijo, "el trabajo del presidente es estar allí - incluso si no tiene todas las respuestas."

 

Por su parte, Burkhardt, hablando por teléfono desde Chicago, dijo que había estado activo durante todo el fin de semana a raíz de la explosión y que estaba planeando un viaje a Lac-Mégantic en un futuro próximo. También dijo que más ayuda estaba en camino.

 

"Estamos planeando, tras coordinar con la ciudad, establecer una oficina tan pronto como sea posible", dijo. "Si estoy en el negocio y ha ocurrido la tragedia, quiero que alguien pague por esa pérdida. Es tan simple como eso, y eso es lo que estamos dispuestos a hacer.

 

"Pero eso requiere un lugar donde trabajar e investigar el proceso en curso. No estamos con evasivas con nadie. Queremos resolver esto lo más rápido posible para que las personas puedan seguir adelante".

Lac-Mégantic: Railway chairman says train was tampered with (with video)

 

 

BY LAURA BEESTON, THE GAZETTE JULY 9, 2013

 

LAC-MÉGANTIC - The chairman of the company whose train exploded in downtown Lac-Mégantic says he is certain it was tampered with.

 

“We have evidence of this,” said Ed Burkhardt, of Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway. “But this is an item that needs further investigation. We need to talk to some people we believe to have knowledge of this.”

 

On Sunday, however, the company isssued a statement saying their officials had been so far unable to conduct their own investigation.

 

A probe by the Transportation Safety Board is currently underway to determine what caused a parked, unattended locomotive to roll towards the town of 6,000 and derail in the city centre. TSB investigators have inspected several of the locomotives involved, as well as obtained two black boxes that contain data about the train’s brakes, throttle position and speed at the time of the incident.

 

So far, the majority of the questions surrounding the cause of the accident have focused on a fire that occurred on a MMA locomotive in Nantes, 11 kilometres outside Lac-Mégantic. The fire apparently started after the train’s conductor parked, applied the brakes and retired from his 12-hour shift.

 

Burkhardt maintains all operating rules were complied with, and said his company has begun its own internal inquiry, which has been limited by rescue efforts and parallel investigations underway since Saturday. He does not believe that the event was malicious or an act of terrorism.

 

“We want to know what they know,” said Burkhardt. “There are a number of missing pieces here ... but we’d like to have a complete idea about the cause. We are prepared to go in and do this very quickly; as soon as we can gain access to people and to the site.”

 

Burkhardt said about a dozen of his employees have been at-the-ready in the small town since Saturday.

 

“I don’t like hearing statements that we don’t have people there,” he said, declining to give further information about his team on the ground. “We’ve been asking for a meeting with the municipal government for the last three days.”

 

But his company has been criticized for its initial response to the incident, and for being slow to speak publicly. The first statement on the incident arrived 36 hours after the derailment and explosion demolished the downtown core.

 

“I think that speaks for itself,” said the NDP’s Thomas Mulcair, leader of the federal opposition, when he toured the town on Sunday.

 

And François Legault, head of the provincial Coalition Avenir Québec party and former president of Air Transat, also weighed in on Monday about corporate responsibility. “In a disaster,” he said, ”the president’s job is to be there — even if he doesn’t have all the answers.”

 

For his part, Burkhardt, speaking by phone from Chicago, said he had been active all weekend in the aftermath of the explosion and that he was planning a trip to Lac-Mégantic in the near future. He also said that more help was on the way.

 

“We’re planning, as soon as we can agree with the town, to establish an office as quickly as we can,” he said. “If I’m a business and it’s burned down, I want someone to pay for that loss. It’s as simple as that, and that’s what we’re prepared to do.

 

“But that business or home owner has to have a place where they can come and sit down with somebody and get the process underway. We’re not stonewalling anybody. We want to settle this as quickly as possible so people can move on.”

 

 

Early Monday morning, Lac-Mégantic Mayor Colette Roy-Laroche said she’d be meeting with representatives from the MMA for a first time later in the day.

Lac Megantic, Quebec - Los investigadores están tratando de averiguar si los frenos fueron desactivados antes de que el tren arremetiera contra la pequeña ciudad, descarrilara y estallara en un infierno mortal.

 

click2houston.com/news/Cops-Criminal-act-may-be-behind-train-crash/-/1735978/20894236/-/atee9rz/-/index.html

 

Los bomberos de la cercana ciudad de Nantes apagaron un incendio en el tren poco antes de que se estrellara en Lac-Megantic la madrugada del sábado. Ed Burkhardt, director ejecutivo y presidente de Rail World, la empresa matriz del  Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway, ha dicho a los medios de comunicación que hay evidencia de que el motor que impulsa los frenos fue cerrado en algún momento.

 

Presionado por CTV, Burkhardt escribió el martes en un intercambio de correo electrónico, "Ahora somos conscientes de que los bomberos cerraron los frenos de la locomotora. Cuando   nos enteramos, ya era demasiado tarde."

 

En comentarios anteriores al Montreal Gazette, dijo que el asunto requiere mayor investigación, y su compañía ha iniciado una investigación interna: "Hay una serie de piezas que faltan aquí" dijo Burkhardt al periódico, manifestando que él no sospechaba "que el evento era malicioso o un acto de terrorismo".

 

El tren comenzó a rodar - a espaldas de los despachadores y los controladores del tráfico ferroviario - alrededor de una hora después de que se reportó el incendio de Nantes. Se aceleró porque la pista entre Nantes y Lac-Megantic se encuentra en una pendiente descendente con 1,2% de inclinación, lo que es relativamente fuerte.

 

"En las líneas principales, tan pronto se da un movimiento sin control, los controladores de tráfico ferroviario puede ver que hay un movimiento no controlado", dijo Belkaloul. Pero en líneas más pequeñas, como la que existe entre Nantes y Lac-Megantic, "no hay manera de que el distribuidor o el controlador se diecen cuenta de que hay un movimiento no controlado."

 

Setenta y dos vagones cisterna que transportan petróleo crudo se descarrilaron el sábado, lo que desencadenó una explosión y una enorme bola de fuego.

 

Funcionarios en Lac-Megantic dicen que algunas de las víctimas fueron probablemente vaporizadas por el fuego que ardió durante 36 horas después del accidente.

 

El fuego está bajo control, dijeron las autoridades el martes por la mañana. De los aproximadamente 2.000 residentes evacuados, a unos 1200 se les permitirá regresar a casa inmediatamente. Otros 800 no pueden regresar, dijeron los funcionarios.

 

Avisos fueron colocados en las puertas de las casas para instruir a los residentes cómo limpiar y ventilar sus casas. Funcionarios sugirieron tirar todos los alimentos y hervir toda el agua porque la planta de tratamiento de agua de la ciudad no está en funcionamiento.

 

Los bomberos están utilizando detectores de infrarrojos para encontrar puntos calientes que pudieran quedar en los escombros. Han dejado de manguerear la zona, ya que eso impide la investigación.

 

Rodando bomba de aceite?

 

En el tren ya se había desatado el fuego antes del accidente del sábado. Los bomberos de la ciudad de Nantes, a siete millas al noroeste de Lac-Megantic, apagaron un pequeño incendio en el tren de carga.

 

Cuando se fueron, el tren seguía aparcado en donde se suponía que debía pasar la noche, dijeron funcionarios de Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway .

 

LA INCÓGNITA DE LOS FRENOS

 

Anteriormente, la compañía dijo que los frenos de aire que retienen el tren fallaron, lo que le permitió precipitarse cuesta abajo en Lac-Megantic. No estaba claro si Burkhardt, ejecutivo de Rail World estaba sugiriendo a CTV que los bomberos se encargaron de desactivar los frenos, pero le dijomás temprano a Reuters que los frenos se desactivaron cuando los bomberos apagan el motor que los alimentaba.

 

Los investigadores se proponen evaluar los frenos una vez que el amasijo de tanques quemados sea accesible.

 

El tren rodó en la ciudad mucho más rápido que un tren bajo el control de un ingeniero.

 

"Por lo general, se trasladan a entre 5 y 10 kilómetros por hora", dijo Richard Benoit, oficial de policía de Quebec. "En esa noche, el tren iba por lo menos a 30 o 40 kilómetros por hora."

Investigators had earlier said that they are trying to figure out whether the train's brakes were disabled before it barreled at a dangerous speed into the Quebec town, derailed and burst into a deadly inferno.

 

Firefighters in the nearby town of Nantes put out a separate blaze on the train shortly before it crashed into Lac-Megantic early Saturday. Ed Burkhardt, chief executive officer and president of Rail World, the parent company of the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway, has told media outlets there's evidence the engine powering the brakes was shut down at some point.

 

Pressed to elaborate by CTV, Burkhardt wrote Tuesday in an e-mail exchange, "We are now aware the firefighters shut down the locomotive. By the time (Montreal, Maine & Atlantic) people found out, it was too late."

 

In earlier comments to the Montreal Gazette, he said the matter needs further investigation, and his company has begun an internal inquiry.

 

"There are a number of missing pieces here," Burkhardt told the paper, saying he didn't suspect "the event was malicious or an act of terrorism."

 

The company did not immediately return phone calls from CNN about the report.

 

Asked during an earlier news conference whether authorities suspected sabotage, Ed Belkaloul, manager of rail operations for Canada's Transportation Safety Board's eastern region, said there was no evidence to that effect.

 

The train began rolling -- unbeknownst to dispatchers and rail traffic controllers -- about an hour after the fire in Nantes was reported. It picked up speed because the track between Nantes and Lac-Megantic lies on a 1.2% downward slope, which Belkaloul said is relatively steep.

 

"On the principal lines, as soon as there is an uncontrolled movement, the controllers of rail traffic can see that there is an uncontrolled movement," Belkaloul said. But on smaller lines like the one between Nantes and Lac-Megantic, "there is no way for the dispatcher or the controller to realize that there is an uncontrolled movement."

 

Seventy-two tanker cars carrying crude oil jumped the track early Saturday, setting off a huge fireball.

 

Officials in Lac-Megantic say some victims were likely vaporized by the intense blaze, which burned for 36 hours after the crash.

 

The fire is under control, authorities said Tuesday morning. Of the roughly 2,000 residents evacuated, about 1,200 will be permitted to return home immediately. Another 800 cannot go back yet, the officials said.

 

Notices were placed on doors instructing residents how to clean and air out their homes. Officials suggested throwing out any food and boiling all water because the city's water treatment plant is not operational.

 

Firefighters are now using infrared detectors to find any remaining hot spots in the wreckage. They've stopped hosing down the area because it was inhibiting the investigation, officials said.

 

Rolling oil bomb?

 

The train had already been on fire hours before the Saturday accident, Canadian broadcaster CBC reported, sourcing fire officials. Firefighters in the town of Nantes, seven miles northwest of Lac-Megantic, extinguished a small blaze on the freight train.

 

When they left, the train was still parked where it was supposed to stay for the night, the Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway said.

 

Earlier, the company said air brakes holding the train in place failed, allowing it to barrel downhill into Lac-Megantic. It was not clear if Rail World executive Burkhardt was suggesting to CTV that firefighters were responsible for disabling the brakes, but he told Reuters earlier that the brakes were disabled when firefighters shut down the engine powering them.

 

Investigators plan to check the brakes once the crumpled, burned tankers are accessible.

 

The train rolled into town much faster than a train under an engineer's control would have.

 

"Usually they're traveling between 5 and 10 miles an hour," said Quebec police officer Benoit Richard. "On that night, this train was going at least between 30 and 40 miles an hour."

LAC-MEGANTIC QUEBEC EXPLOSION:


Conspiracy, Grey Terror or Accident?

UPDATED: July 9, 2013 -2; July 10

On July 6, 2013, the centre of the town was severely damaged when an unmanned train carrying petroleum products derailed, caught fire, and exploded. At least thirteen people were killed and a further 50 were missing, police said on July 8. –Lac-Megantic derailment

After the horrific explosion following a derailment in the town of Lac-Megantic Quebec this past weekend, some have wondered if the train wreck was simply an unfortunate accident–or something that may have been planned. According to an early report, Massive Explosions after Freight Train Derailment in Quebec Province Town:

Reports of massive explosions, people missing, and an entire freight train carrying crude oil derailed, ‘all the tankers on fire’ in the heart of the small town of Lac-Megantic located 250 kilometers east of Montreal. Authorities also report crude oil in all of the estimated 73 freight tankers are on fire with massive damage to the town.

Later news included reports of a fire aboard the train; one report stated that the fire had been put out before the crash. [Fire on runaway train was  put out before the explosion]

Before a 73 car runaway train derailed in Lac-Megantic and exploded, a fire was put out in one of its engines.

Whispers of the fire linked to an unnamed conspiracy soon surfaced–and indeed, “Lac-Megantic conspiracy” was a search term on Google. This article is about the concept of Grey Terror and how it may relate to the Lac-Megantic explosion. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, see the 2004 article by J.R. Nyquist: Grey Terror.

On the night of May 1, 2011, United States Special Forces launched a raid to kill or capture al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, deep inside Pakistani territory, in a compound within the garrison town of Abbottabad. Following the event, the Pakistani government set up a Commission to establish how US forces could have violated Pakistani sovereignty without repercussions, and how Bin Laden, the world's most wanted man, came to reside secretly in Pakistan for so long.

Los documentos filtrados proporcionan una visión fascinante de la vida del hombre más buscado del mundo.

.

En la noche del 1 de mayo de 2011, las Fuerzas Especiales de EEUU lanzaron un ataque para capturar o matar a Osama bin Laden, en el corazón del territorio paquistaní, en una edificación recinto dentro de la ciudad guarnición de Abbottabad. Después del operativo, el gobierno de Pakistán creó una comisión, para establecer, cómo las fuerzas estadounidenses pudieron haber violado la soberanía de Pakistán, sin repercusiones, y cómo Bin Laden, el hombre más buscado del mundo, pudo residir en secreto, en Pakistán, durante tanto tiempo.

 

A los lugareños se les dijo que los altos muros del escondite del grupo de Bin Laden  'eran para mantener alejados a los parientes enemistados'...

Bin Laden viajaba afeitado y con sombrero vaquero para no ser identificado

 .

Islamabad, 9 jul (EFE).- Osama bin Laden llegó a vestir un sombrero vaquero para evitar ser detectado por cámaras aéreas y viajó por el norte de Pakistán completamente afeitado, según desvela el informe de una comisión oficial paquistaní filtrado en las últimas horas.

.

La investigación critica duramente a las instituciones de Pakistán y reafirma la imagen del líder de Al Qaeda obsesionado por su seguridad, desde su llegada a Pakistán en 2002 procedente de Afganistán hasta su muerte en 2011 en la ciudad de Abbottabad.

.

Las portadas de los principales diarios paquistaníes se hacen hoy amplio eco del asunto, aunque las autoridades mantienen silencio de momento.

.

El documento, obtenido íntegramente por la cadena catarí Al Yazira, refleja detalles íntimos de Bin Laden como que comía "manzana y chocolate cuando se sentía perezoso" o que seguía estrictamente preceptos de la tradición islámica más conservadora.

.

Así, el terrorista saudí obligaba a sus esposas a cubrirse incluso cuando aparecía un hombre en la televisión o hizo que sus hijas empezaran a llevar velo con apenas tres años de edad.

El testimonio de las mujeres supervivientes del operativo de EEUU -las tres esposas del saudí y una de uno de sus guardias- da cuenta de que en varios de sus desplazamientos por el norte de Pakistán Bin Laden lucía la cara afeitada para no ser asociado a su larga barba.

 

Su meticulosidad para evitar ser detectado le llevó a usar incluso un sombrero vaquero cuando en 2005 llegó a su nueva casa de Abbottabad para que ninguna imagen aérea pudiera revelar su identidad.

 

Del informe se desprende que la obsesión del terrorista saudí aumentó tras el arresto en Rawalpindi, cerca de Islamabad, del dirigente paquistaní de Al Qaeda Jalid Sheikh Mohamed, considerado uno de los cerebros de los ataques del 11-S y con quien Bin Laden compartió escondite algunos meses.

 

Según el relato de Maryam, la mujer de uno de los dos hermanos que actuaban como mensajeros y guardias pretorianos de Bin Laden, ese arresto en 2003 llevó al entonces hombre más buscado del mundo a suspender cualquier contacto cara a cara con miembros de Al Qaeda.

 

Una hija de Maryam pudo, a pesar de todas las precauciones, identificar al misterioso inquilino del tercer piso del inmueble de Abbottabad tras verlo un día en las escaleras de la casa y reconocer su rostro en una imagen televisiva poco después.

 

El episodio enervó tanto a Bin Laden como a sus escoltas y supuso la suspensión de los contactos entre las familias del jefe de Al Qaeda, que vivía con esposas, hijos y nietos, y las de sus guardaespaldas.

 

Curiosamente, esa niña que identificó a Bin Laden lo llamaba el "tío pobre", ya que, ante su pregunta de por qué el señor del ático no iba nunca al mercado, sus padres idearon la excusa de que era demasiado pobre para hacer compras.

 

Estas revelaciones están recogidas en un informe de 337 páginas que contiene los hallazgos de la comisión especial nombrada por el Ejecutivo paquistaní semanas después de que un comando de EEUU acabase con la vida del líder de Al Qaeda en Abbottabad.

 

El 2 de mayo de 2011, una veintena de tropas de elite de la Marina de EEUU entraron en Pakistán desde la cercana frontera afgana y aterrizaron en la casa de Bin Laden, donde lo mataron.

 

El Gobierno paquistaní ordenó poco después la formación de la comisión, presidida por un magistrado del Supremo, aún en medio del estupor y la incredulidad que produjo en la ciudadanía el hecho de que el líder de Al Qaeda viviera tranquilamente en el país.

 

A pesar de que el informe deja muchos interrogantes abiertos, sobre todo en cuanto a la actuación de las autoridades e instituciones locales antes y después del 2 de mayo de 2011, parece acabar con la teoría de que la 'operación Bin Laden' fue una farsa.

 

Dos de las hijas del saudí -Maryam y Sumayya- afirmaron ante los investigadores que identificaron el cadáver de su padre con un disparo en la frente poco antes de que los militares estadounidenses abandonaran la casa llevándose el cuerpo con ellos.

 

El informe apunta, por otra parte, a la posible colaboración de algunos locales con la operación orquestada por la CIA y menciona a un excoronel paquistaní, Said Iqbal, conectado con el exjefe de las Fuerzas Armadas, Pervez Musharraf, ahora arrestado por otras causas.

 

La comisión arremete contra lo que llama "incompetencia en todos los niveles del Gobierno" paquistaní y crítica duramente a diversas instituciones por su ineficacia en la detección del terrorista más buscado del mundo y en la investigación posterior a su muerte.

The Bin Ladens' life on the run


Leaked documents give a fascinating insight into the life of the world's most wanted man.

On the night of May 1, 2011, United States Special Forces launched a raid to kill or capture al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden, deep inside Pakistani territory, in a compound within the garrison town of Abbottabad. Following the event, the Pakistani government set up a Commission to establish how US forces could have violated Pakistani sovereignty without repercussions, and how Bin Laden, the world's most wanted man, came to reside secretly in Pakistan for so long.


The report you are reading, looking at the second of these aspects, is drawn from witness testimony and the Commission's own investigations, obtained exclusively by Al Jazeera.

 

 

.

 

Osama bin Laden, the former al-Qaeda chief and once the world's most wanted man, lived in Pakistan for nine years, staying in at least six different locations. While maintaining a very low profile, he evaded detection thanks to multiple failures of the Pakistani civil and military establishments, the Abbottabad Commission report shows.


Through the testimony of Bin Laden's wives, the wife of one of his couriers, intelligence officials and various others who came in contact with the family and its support network, the commission was able to piece together an image of what life on the run was like for the Bin Ladens and their Pakistani guards.


The story starts in early 2002, when Osama bin Laden was suspected to have entered Pakistan's northwestern areas, having narrowly evaded capture by the United States in the Battle of Tora Bora in Afghanistan in December 2001. It is unclear where he initially stayed, but intelligence officials say they believe he spent time in both the South Waziristan and Bajaur tribal areas.


The trail picks up in mid-2002, when Maryam, the wife of Ibrahim al-Kuwaiti, a trusted Bin Laden guard and courier, confirms that she travelled with a tall, "clean-shaven Arab" from the northwestern city of Peshawar to the Swat Valley. Swat was home to Kuwaiti and his brother, Abrar. Both Pakistanis acted as Bin Laden's couriers and guards throughout his stay in Pakistan. They were also associates of Khalid Sheikh Muhammad, the alleged mastermind of the 9/11 attacks against the United States, who is thought to have recruited them into al-Qaeda.


It was in Swat that Bin Laden was reunited with one of his baby daughters and his third wife, Amal Ahmad Abdul Fattah al-Sadah, a 29-year-old Yemeni. When Bin Laden joined Maryam, Ibrahim and Amal, he was accompanied by two other men: one a driver, the other wearing a police uniform. The identities of these men remain unknown.

.

A close shave

 

The group lived in Swat for between six and eight months, during which time "the tall Arab" did not mix with the couriers' families. It was during this time that Amal, Bin Laden's wife, became pregnant, and that Abrar al-Kuwaiti married a Pakistani from Kohat, named Bushra, who joined the group.

 

 

While the groups' activities outside the house were described as being limited, Maryam did testify that, on one occasion, when they were visiting a nearby bazaar, their car, with Bin Laden inside, was stopped for speeding by a traffic policeman. Ibrahim, however, "quickly settled the matter", according to the report, and the world's most wanted man continued on his way.

In early 2003, Osama bin Laden was visited by Khalid Sheikh Mohammad. Mohammad, travelling under the alias "Hafeez", was accompanied by his wife and seven children, and stayed with the group in Swat for two weeks. A month later, in March 2003, while watching Al Jazeera, they saw that Mohammad had been arrested in Rawalpindi in a joint CIA-ISI operation.

The news jolted Bin Laden, and three days later, accompanied by the brothers Ibrahim and Abrar, he left Swat. Two days after that, Ibrahim returned to pick up their wives and children, bringing them to Peshawar. Here they separated, with Amal staying on in Peshawar and Maryam and Bushra travelling on to Kohat, where they stayed in separate houses. The whereabouts of Bin Laden at this point remain unknown.

 

About three months later, Maryam and Bushra travelled to a house in the outskirts of the town of Haripur, about 35km south of Abbottabad, where they found Osama bin Laden and his wife Amal, with the brothers Ibrahim and Abrar. Also in the house were Bin Laden's second wife Siham Sabar - a Saudi national known locally as "Sharifa", her son Khalid bin Laden, and two other Bin Laden daughters - Sumayya and Mariam, both adults in their early 20s.

.

Evasion tactics

The two-storey house, in the Naseem Town area, is described as being spacious, with three bedrooms and a lawn. The group stayed here for almost two years, during which time Amal twice gave birth to children. The children were delivered at a local clinic, but Amal never stayed the night there, and all conversation with the doctors was handled by Abrar al-Kuwaiti and his wife Bushra, who told the doctors that Amal was deaf and dumb.

In Haripur, the men never used mobile phones to make calls. Instead, they would travel to Peshawar, 150km away, or Rawalpindi, a distance of 65km, to make phone calls from Public Call Offices (PCOs). They watched Al Jazeera via a satellite dish, according to Maryam. No "guests" ever visited the men during that time, although Maryam said Ibrahim's mother visited at least once.

The brothers, paid Rs9,000 a month (about $150 at the time) by Bin Laden, as well as some "additional money" and gifts "from time to time", seldom spent a night away from him.

.

While in Haripur, however, Bin Laden was already planning his next move. In July 2004, land for the construction of a new house was purchased in Abbottabad, an army garrison town located about 85km north of the Pakistani capital Islamabad. Construction began in August 2004 on a two-storey structure, custom-built with walls as high as 18ft in some places. The building was completed in 2005.

In August 2005, the group moved to the newly constructed house. Abrar and Ibrahim took their families there first, with Bin Laden and his family following soon after. The brothers posed as businessmen, purchasing the land under a false identity (Abrar posed as one "Muhammad Arshad", and his brother was known as "Tariq Khan"). They fled the tribal areas, their story goes, as a result of a family feud - and this is the reason they gave for the high walls and isolation of the residents from their neighbours.

In October 2005, the northeast of Pakistan was hit by a devastating earthquake, the effects of which were felt in Abbottabad. The event had two positive repercussions for the group: first, under the guise of repairing the house, they were able to add an additional, unauthorised, storey to the structure; and second, the earthquake resulted in an influx of Pashtun migrants to the town, fleeing the destruction behind them, allowing the group to better blend in among the flood of non-native Abbottabad residents.

To the locals, the house came to be known as "Waziristan House", or, to others, simply "The Big House".

 

  

The WaPo went with a simple, austere and elegant 3d diagram created by Todd Lindeman, based on official information released by government sources, and photographic reference. The graphic's text sticks to the known and confirmed facts and avoids any deviation from the norm.

The interactive version also adds some 3D cartographic context a timeline and description of traditional Muslim burial practices. All of those elements are in sync with the overall coverage of the story.

Life with 'Miskeen Baba'

Life in "Waziristan House" was kept strictly private. The brothers had utility companies install four separate meters for electricity and natural gas respectively, in an apparent attempt to ensure that none of the meters showed an excessive amount of activity, betraying the true number of residents. These were procured under the false identities of "Muhammad Arshad" and "Sahib Khan".

Abrar and Ibrahim saw to the procurement of food and provisions. Khalid, Bin Laden's son, looked after plumbing and other maintenance services. There was, accordingly, seldom any contact with the outside world. On occasion, a local named Shamraiz, who lived in a house opposite the compound, would do odd jobs in the compound's garden for Rs350/day (less than $5). He also reportedly sold a cow to the group, which was subsequently looked after by Khalid.

 

Ibrahim and Abrar were the only people to regularly leave the compound to interact with the community. They would "regularly" offer their prayers in the local mosque, according to Shamraiz, and "their conduct was polite and kind".

The group lived, according to the testimony of the wives, "extremely frugally". Bin Laden himself, before moving to Abbottabad, reportedly owned only three pairs of shalwar kameez (local Pakistani dress) for summer, and three pairs for winter - in addition to a single black jacket, and two sweaters.

He also owned "a cowboy hat", which he wore when he moved around the compound to avoid detection from above. Bin Laden, who reportedly suffered from various ailments, particularly in his kidneys and possibly his heart, would sometimes complain of sluggishness, and, on those occasions, he would eat some chocolate and/or an apple, according to the commission's findings. There is no evidence to suggest he was ever visited by a doctor, and he almost certainly never left the compound.

Bin Laden's children lived "extremely regimented and secluded lives", according to the Commission's report. He saw to the religious education of his grandchildren personally, and even supervised their playtime. Part of those playtime activities were competitions in cultivating vegetables in the compound's garden, with "simple prizes" for the best tended plants.

.

The Bin Laden family's women also lived very secluded lives, and, according to one account, began observing the veil from the age of three. Maryam, Ibrahim's wife, went as far as to suggest that they even observed purdah - an Urdu term implying seclusion - from men on television.

Khairiyyah Sabar, a 61-year-old Saudi national and Bin Laden's first wife, joined the group just three months before the US raid, having spent the eight years between 2002 and 2010 in detention in Iran. She never mixed with the couriers' families.

.

The couriers' families, meanwhile, had slightly more freedom. While their children, too, did not go to school and were instructed by their fathers, they were also allowed to leave the compound from time to time. According to local journalists interviewed by the commission, a number of local children said they had played cricket with the children.

The families of Ibrahim and Abrar were, however, kept almost entirely separate from Bin Laden's family, with some exceptions among the children. Even the women would only socially interact with each other for about 15 minutes every month.

.

One incident, as described by Maryam, stands out as being illustrative of the deliberately maintained disconnect. Rahma, the nine-year-old daughter of Maryam and Ibrahim, once asked her father why "the uncle who lives upstairs" in the main house, meaning Bin Laden, never left the house to go to the bazaar. Ibrahim told her it was because the man was too poor to buy anything. From that day onwards, Rahma referred to the man as "Miskeen Baba" [literally: Poor Uncle].

On one occasion, Rahma accidentally happened upon "Miskeen Baba" while receiving lessons from Sumayya, one of Bin Laden's daughters, and greeted him. From that day, she was banned from the main house.

.

Unlike in Haripur, in the Abbottabad compound, the women did have access to television. One day, approximately in January 2011, Rahma saw a picture of Bin Laden while watching Al Jazeera, and immediately recognised him as her "Miskeen Baba" from the main house. The incident troubled Ibrahim greatly, who was upset with his daughter and immediately banned all the women of his household from watching television. The incident also resulted in a complete block on any interaction between the Bin Laden and al-Kuwaiti families.

It was only then, almost nine years after first seeing him, that Maryam realised that the tall Arab she had met in the Swat Valley and had lived with for years was Osama bin Laden. According to her testimony, no-one other than Bin Laden's own family, Ibrahim, Abrar - and now herself - knew his true identity.

 

.

'Complete collapse of governance'

Lt-Gen Ahmed Shuja Pasha, then Director-General of Pakistan's premier Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agency, testified before the commission, saying that ISI analysis indicated that, while in Pakistan, Bin Laden "was to a degree actively planning al-Qaeda's future operations". Evidence suggests that, while he had cut off personal contact with other al-Qaeda operatives following the capture of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad in 2003, he was still electronically in communication with them.

It was, ultimately, this electronic communication, carried out through his couriers, which led to his downfall, when US intelligence services obtained phone numbers of public phone boxes used by the al-Kuwaiti brothers, and were able to track them.

The Pakistani Army Board of Inquiry brought to investigate Bin Laden's killing concluded that the al-Qaeda chief was able to escape detection in Abbottabad "due to the phased construction and occupation of the compound, the extremely low profile that was maintained, including very low technical signatures that might have indicated the presence of a High Value Target (HVT) [and] the clever selection of the OBL compound in an area few might suspect an HVT would choose to reside in", according to the Commission's report.

.

 

Moreover, the board and the commission both found that a mixture of negligence and incompetence shown by several government departments - including the Revenue Department, the local Cantonment board, the local police, the National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA), local utility providers and the Excise & Taxation Department - allowed Bin Laden to escape detection, despite multiple times at which officials in said departments had cause to investigate the house and its inhabitants.

In one particularly telling section of the report, the Commission summarises the situation: "Either OBL was extremely fortunate to not run into anyone [c]ommitted to doing his job honestly, or there was a complete collapse of local governance."

As for his support network in Pakistan, the Commission concluded that, while he may have maintained a small and dedicated group of people who were helping him, the fact that he had been in the country for nine years left no excuse for the country's intelligence services to have made no progress in tracking him.

"Over a period of time," the report reads, "an effective intelligence agency should have been able to contact, infiltrate or co-opt [his support network], and to develop a whole case load of information.

"Apparently, this was not the case."

WAR ON TERROR
ABC News’  Muhammad Lila: “Leaked Osama Bin Laden Report Accuses Pakistani Officials of ‘Gross Incompetence‘” ”Gross incompetence” and collective failures by Pakistani political and military leaders allowed al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden to evade capture while living for years in Pakistan, according to a published copy of the official Pakistani government investigation into bin Laden’s life and death. The report, referred to as the “Abbotabad Commission,” is a scathing critique of how an often inept Pakistani political and intelligence infrastructure allowed the world’s most wanted man to live in Pakistan for nine years — six of them in a compound in Abbottabad, less than a mile from a Pakistani military academy. LINK

Cybercrime top 10 countries 2010

 

 

 

El cibercrimen, ¿accesible para todos?


El cibercriminal puede externalizar el delito completo si así lo desea, como lo pone de manifiesto el informe Cybercrime Exposed

 

Una tarjeta de crédito es lo único que se necesita para solicitar un servicio de cibercrimen.

Sí, hasta aquí ha llegado el auge del modelo de servicios tan en boga en el mundo de la informática y cuyo máximo exponente es el llamado «cloud computing».

.

Ahora, el cibercriminal puede incluso externalizar el delito completo si así lo desea, como lo pone de manifiesto el informe Cybercrime Exposed, elaborado por Raj Samani, vicepresidente y CTO de McAfee EMEA.

Samani afirma que, debido a esta tendencia, el cibercrimen se ha convertido en algo accesible para todos.

De hecho, el experto afirma que se ha creado todo un mercado en el que se ofertan diferentes servicios de cibercrimen, de modo que se ha puesto a disposición de las masas cualquier tipo de ataque «online».

Hacia la industrialización absoluta

Al igual que ocurre con otros segmentos del mercado de las TIC el cibercrimen también se está industrializando.

La oferta es amplia, indica Samani, «desde servicios para la compra de listados de correos electrónicos por pequeñas cantidades de dinero a vulnerabilidades disponibles a golpe de clic como los ataques de denegación de servicio por 2 dólares en una hora o simplemente la compra de ‘Me gusta’ en Facebook».

.

El informe describe diversos tipos de cibercrimen como servicio.

Por un lado está el llamado «Crimeware» como servicio, es decir, la identificación y el desarrollo de las vulnerabilidades y materiales necesarios para llevar a cabo un ataque.

.

En segundo lugar se encuentra la investigación como servicio o adquisición de la propiedad intelectual como, por ejemplo, la dirección de correo electrónico y los datos personales.

.

También se ofrece como un servicio la infraestructura de cibercrimen o el desarrollo de prestaciones que pueden soportar este tipo de operaciones delictivas «online» como los ataques de denegación de servicio hasta el envío de correo electrónico no deseado.

.

Y, finalmente,se ofrece como servicio el propio «hacking», es decir, es posible subcontratar un ataque completo: desde la investigación hasta la infraestructura.

.

Por todo ello no es extraño el inusitado auge que las prácticas del cibercrimen tienen en el mercado.

No en vano, el 17% de los ciudadanos europeos ya han sido víctimas de algún robo de identidad, lo que ha supuesto un coste de media de 1.170 euros, aproximadamente, según los datos del Centro de Cibercrimen Europeo EC3 que, además, pone de manifiesto que, además de los ciudadanos en sí, cada vez hay más empresas y organismos públicos que son objetivos de estos ataques.

El cibercrimen se convierte en servicio

 

Raj Samani, vicepresidente y CTO de McAfee EMEA, asegura en un informe que el “cibercrimen-as-a-service” es una tendencia que cada vez está más extendida. 

Gracias a ella, no es necesario que los ataques provengan de gente con conocimientos técnicos.

Según el último informe de Raj Samani, vicepresidente y CTO de McAfee EMEA, hoy en día “ya no es necesario que los cibercriminales tengan muchos conocimientos técnicos o que dispongan de grandes equipos informáticos para llevar a cabo un ataque”.

 

Y es que, y tal y como señala Raj Samani, cada vez el “cibercrimen-as-a-service” es una tendencia que está cada vez más desarrollada, lo que permite que casi cualquiera pueda realizar un ciberataque.

 

“Como resultado, este mercado se está industrializando y permitiendo el acceso al cibercrimen a todo el mundo”.

 

El directivo de MacAfee añade que los ataques van “desde servicios para la compra de listados de correos electrónicos por pequeñas cantidades de dinero a vulnerabilidades disponibles a golpe de clic como los ataques de denegación de servicio por 2 dólares en una hora o simplemente la compra de “Me gusta” en Facebook”.

 

Dentro de lo que Raj Samani ha denominado como “cibercrimen-as-a-service”

 

hay diferentes modelos, como el

 

“Crime-ware as a service”, que consistiría en la identificación y desarrollo de las vulnerabilidades y materiales necesarios para llevar a cabo un ataque;

 

“Investigación as a service”, adquisición de la propiedad intelectual como dirección de correo electrónico y datos personales; 

 

“Infraestructura de cibercrimen as a service”, o el desarrollo de los servicios que pueden soportar las operaciones de cibercrimen desde ataques de denegación de servicio hasta enviar correo electrónico no deseado; y el

 

“hacking as a service”, que consistiría en la la subcontratación de un ataque completo.
