Indian High Commission in London Using Typewriters To Prevent Cyber Espionage

The Indian High Commission in London has started using typewriters to protect themselves against spying. This is quite old fashioned,but Jamini Bhagwati, Indian High Commissioner in London told the Times of India "Top secret cables are never conveyed through the internet or machines with cable connections. External hard drives with tremendous amount of data storage capacity are easy to access. Therefore, top secret cables are written on the typewriter which can't be tracked." Typewriters have come out since the recent revelations made by Snowden, where he showed that the NSA has been using different kinds of devices to spy on the Indian diplomats and military officials.The employees has been asked to be careful when discussing  classified information inside the embassy premises for fear of bugs planted by international security agencies.

OpSyria : Anonymous Press Realease

Publish through pastebin on the 7 of September,Anonymous has outline their position in regards to what is happening in Syria.By now,the document has received a total hits of 693.An exact copy of the press release has been provided below for our readers.
 
"Anonymous -- #OpSyria
PRESS RELEASE
    
Greetings from Anonymous, the final boss of the internet. Recently it has come to our attention that
the public, supporters of our movement and the general internet populace is slightly confused as to
our intentions for Operation Syria.  
We wish to outline our position on the regime and the opposition so as to make things less complicated
for those unaware of our intentions.
 We do not support the Syrian regime, namely for a few reasons:
    
1.) The Syrian regime has oppressed the people of Syria.
2.) The Syrian regime has used weapons of mass destruction against innocent people.
3.) The Syrian regime seeks to limit freedom of expression through the difficulty of internet access,
    thereby limiting, in addition, freedom of information supply to the Syrian people.
    
We stand with the people of Syria, not necessarily all the views of the opposition. Anonymous takes a
very pro-information and pro-freedom approach to our operations and our planning. When it became clear
that the Syrian regime was limiting the rights of the people, we responded accordingly, deciding that
we would take the side of the populace.
As we do frequently, Anonymous firmly stands on the side of the population, rather than the government.
To support the Syrian regime would be to support an oppressive organization seeking to attack the liberty
of an entire nation. Surely, it becomes clear, then, why Anonymous has so viciously been lashing out
at Syrian government websites. 
To date, we have hacked into Syrian customs, launched DDoS attacks on numerous Syrian government websites,
spread information on the situation at hand, and gone to war with the Syrian Electronic Army.  
As for the latter, we did so only after the Syrian Electronic Army declared war on Anonymous, and by extension
you. We are not particularly interested specifically in one pro-regime hacktivist group, and as such,
we are more preoccupied with getting our message out through attacking the government.
Anonymous is a movement. It is an idea which does not manifest itself into the viewpoints and ranks of
any small group of particular individuals. We do not represent the entire idea or protest of Anonymous, rather
the #OpSyria arm of the AnonOps association of activists.
Conflicting viewpoints on these matters are welcome, as we do not attack or declare any opinion to be wrong.
As much as we are open with our position that we support the people of Syria, we wish to also make it clear
that we serve a more significant, if not epic, purpose. Operaton Syria seeks to provide the world with information
as its greatest ammunition. That being any information we've dug up with or without intrusions into systems.
Operation Syria's greatest caliber round is the documents and the motivation we give to the international
community to take a stand and stomp down the oppressor.
You are Anonymous. You, too, are legion, simply by declaring your loyalty to the movement and the idea.
You cannot join Anonymous, you cannot represent Anonymous, you cannot claim that Anonymous is taking one
specific standpoint without further clarifying that opinions may differ all across the globe.
Hopefully we have clarified these matters as they became important or relevant.
If you wish to speak to activists in support of Operation Syria, join our internet relay chat:
    
webchat.anonops.com/?channels=#opsyria
or irc.anonops.com/6697 for SSL on an IRC client.
    
We are Anonymous
We are legion
We do not forgive
We do not forget.
We are already here.

Commander X Quits

Christopher Doyon, known as Commander X in the cyber world posted a farewell message on pastebin.com.Titled as "Farewell Statement From X" , he explained why he is quitting everything and what he will be doing. Commander X is today homeless, without family and he clearly described what he is going through in his farewell message. An exact copy of what he wrote has been pasted here for our readers.

Exact Copy Of Original Message:
"Greetings --

I have been an activist for 30 years. My entire life has been dedicated to fighting for justice and freedom, for both human and animal rights. For 28 of those years I have been what some call a "hactivist", and in the past 5 years I have been a part of the amazing idea called Anonymous. In fact, during these past 5 years I have dedicated an average of 10 hours a day to cyber-activism within the context of the PLF and Anonymous. In the course of these events, the persona of "Commander X" has developed and expanded to almost mythic proportions. In a sense the "Commander X" persona has become a bit like BatMan, a sort of cyber-super hero. But like BatMan, the impossible persona of "Commander X" rests upon the shoulders of a simple man. And like all men, I have frailties, weaknesses - and limits.

In the past few years, in order to support this "Commmander X" persona I have sacrificed my family, my freedom, my home - and even my country. I will never regain these, I will die as a man without a family or country.  I will die alone in a foreign land, my ashes spread across a foreign forest. I have no regrets in this regard, "Commander X" made a difference - he saved lives and inspired thousands to join this critical fight for the very soul of humanity.

But in addition to the sacrifices named above, the past few years of endless work on the PLF and Anonymous have thoroughly wrecked my health, physical, psychological - and spiritual. "Commander X" may be invincible, but I am extremely ill from the exhaustion and stress of fighting in this epic global cyber war. I always believed I would have the strength to fight until the bitter end. I do not. I can not go on, and as of this moment I permanently and completely retire from cyber-activism, the Peoples Liberation Front - and Anonymous. I have removed my mask from the wall of my office. I am an Anon no longer.

The majority of things that I have sacrificed in order to bear the persona of "Commander X" are lost to me forever. I can never endanger my family by contacting them, and I can never return to the USA. But there is one thing, one delight of my past life that I thought lost to me forever that I can recover.

Many years ago, long before the eruption of this global cyber-war - I was an amateur scientist in the field of Machine Life (autonomous robotics) and AI (artificial intelligence). For five or so years I had a lab in my basement filled with dozens of robots ranging from those the size of a large spider to bipeds two foot tall. As for AI, there is nothing like the thrill of writing code that is capable of learning, code that can literally rewrite itself. Code that can think, respond intelligently - even create. Those years were the happiest and most intellectually fulfilling of my life.

Lately, here in Canada - I have been picking up some small and discrete web design and network security jobs.  I have managed to be able to rent a spare, small and very plain office and furnish it with simple things like a microwave and coffee maker. It is in this space that I intend to take up once again my amateur research into the field of autonomous robotics and artificial intelligence and rebuild my laboratory. The field has progressed much since I was drawn away from it into the great global cyber-war, and I look forward to all the catching up I have to do!  In addition, I will re-establish the Machine Life & Artificial Intelligence Foundation which I founded so long ago as a repository for my research. For those few true friends I have out there in the movement for whom these things are interesting, I have established a new personal Twitter account @M0RPHE0US where I will tweet about things related to this field. But PLEASE, no politics or activism. These things are finished for me.

Commander X will now step off the stage of history, and fade into the mists of myth and legend. Hopefully his sordid and exciting story will inspire others to take up the fight for justice and freedom. As for the tiny simple man upon whose shoulders he rested, he will now spend his days in sheer delight watching the antics of his little robots, and his nights talking to computer programs that can think and dream.

FAREWELL  --  X

Message Posted On Second Link Translated By Google Translate:
"Allow me to apologize for taking a bit of your time . I, like many of you , appreciate the comforts of the everyday routine , family security , the tranquility of repetition. I like them like any other . But in the spirit of celebration , where important events of the past usually associated with someone's death or a significant event is celebrated with a nice holiday, I thought of writing this text, taking a little the time of their lives daily to try to talk . There are , of course , those who do not want us to speak . Those who will do anything for you do not be aware of the facts, including the use of violence . Why ? Because while violence is used in place of dialogue , words will always have power. Words provide a means pro praqueles meaning and listening the enunciation of truth. And the truth is that there is a situation totally wrong in this country . There ? Intolerance , oppression , corrupçãoe impunity. Whose fault is it? Certainly there are those who are more responsible than others and they will be held accountable . But truth be told , if you look for culprits only need to look in the mirror . I know why I did it , I know that many were deceived , how to avoid ? Hunger , poverty , abandonment, there was always a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason you If to get caught by beautiful speeches and promises . The hope of a different reality guided their actions and you relied on the current rulers . They had been promised development ; promised them an end of misery , and all they demanded in return was a silent vote. 191 years ago the Emperor D. Pedro I declared Brazil independent of Portugal certainly a necessary measure for the nation . I invite you to question whether it is the time to declare independent , no longer a foreign nation , but the nation's current , the current emperor , no longer lead more in their hearts will lead us with honor. I'll take the question whether equality justiçae freedom are more than words , but prospects . If you see nothing , if the crimes of this government still unknown you are , I suggest you leave the September 7 go blank . But if you see what I see , feel what I feel and seek what I seek , then I ask that together on Saturday , during the civic-military parade , gave them a September 7 we will never forget"
