Hacking Online Polls And Other Ways Gchq Controls And Manipulates The Internet

Recommended Posts

The secretive British spy agency GCHQ has developed covert tools to seed the internet with false information, including the ability to manipulate the results of online polls, artificially inflate pageview counts on web sites, “amplif[y]” sanctioned messages on YouTube, and censor video content judged to be “extremist.” The capabilities, detailed in documents provided by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, even include an old standby for pre-adolescent prank callers everywhere: A way to connect two unsuspecting phone users together in a call.

The tools were created by GCHQ’s Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group (JTRIG), and constitute some of the most startling methods of propaganda and internet deception contained within the Snowden archive. Previously disclosed documents have detailed JTRIG’s use of “fake victim blog posts,” “false flag operations,” “honey traps” and psychological manipulation to target online activists, monitor visitors to WikiLeaks, and spy on YouTube and Facebook users.

But as the U.K. Parliament today debates a fast-tracked bill to provide the government with greater surveillance powers, one which Prime Minister David Cameron has justified as an “emergency” to “help keep us safe,” a newly released top-secret GCHQ document called “JTRIG Tools and Techniques” provides a comprehensive, birds-eye view of just how underhanded and invasive this unit’s operations are. The document—available in full here—is designed to notify other GCHQ units of JTRIG’s “weaponised capability” when it comes to the dark internet arts, and serves as a sort of hacker’s buffet for wreaking online havoc.

Don't know why you are worried, we've got Nick Clegg to make sure that these guys don't overstep the mark.

Remember: You may be paranoid, but that doesn't imply they're not watching everything little thing you do!

(naive to assume otherwise, in my opinion. Data storage is mad cheap these days, and you never know when you might want it!)

aahh.

it's not the votes that count, it's who counts the votes.

heard this one before haven't we.

now who educated these people before?

there's your culprit.

strike them HARD, because they obviously didn't get the message last time.

I would suggest destroying all their schools,universities and libraries,we need to stop them being taught to be so arrogant.
