I thought lain would enjoy this. The whole thing is so fucking sinister. Don't get lost in the aesthetics though. The national security state is real and it has consequences.

A top-secret handbook takes viewers on an undercover journey to Titanpointe, the site of a hidden partnership. Narrated by Rami Malek and Michelle Williams, and based on classified NSA documents, Project X reveals the inner workings of a windowless skyscraper in downtown Manhattan.

short film by Laura Poitras

article at The Intercept


That skyscraper in the middle of NYC, a block of concrete with no windows, is positively spooky. Great film. It looks like Field of Vision have a lot of great films, thanks Lain.


Great video. Here's a youtube link in case anyone else wants to youtube-dl it


Wait, so do all the large, cement telecom buildings in big cities operate under this program, or just that one. There is a similair building near me.


They don't exactly disclose their activities publicly.
It stands to reason that a major telecommunications node would be involved with some sort of surveillance program, though I guess that it probably depends on the exact nature of a particular place. Presumably, they would want to cover the entire communication that goes in and out and as much of internal stuff as they can, with as little on the ground involvement as possible. I'm just talking, look into the specific programs for anything concrete.
It is important to note that this building is telephone stuff, so it's kinda retro, and (much more important nowadays, and more of interest to people here, I guess) internet data is covered by PRISM, which is an entirely different program operating on a different basis.
As we all know, many chunks of NSA surveillance-related information have been made public, so you should probably consult them for specifics, and find out what this building next to you does, exactly, to know where to look. You would probably want to start with some vague secondary source, even Wikipedia, because these data dumps are humongous.

Is this where /cyb/ has moved to? NICE. Why is there no more cyb on the .org lain?


It got removed a long time ago and split into multiple boards. /sec/ + /tech/ + parts of /cult/ is the functional equivalent I would say.


It got a split like a pizza, into more sections. /cyb/ will forever be /cyb/

Looks like another one of the corporate malware makers are about to get their teeth kicked in;

Seems kinda bent that Europol can be spamming the internet with warnings that purchasing RAT's/etc can land you in jail yet if you're a big enough fish with deep enough pockets you can just waddle on up to a company like Flexispy.

On the other hand it's going to be interesting to see what the threats out in the wild start to look like with Flexispy's toybox kicked over for everyone to loot (like what's just happened with the shadowbrokers/equationgroup leaks).


What separates people like hacking team selling RATS is ok, but selling RATS on some random blackhat form illegal


Selling to governments. Top-down oppression is allowed. Responding is not.


Have you found anything interesting in the release?


until I've setup the correct environment to analyze it (and some other leaks) without risking compromising my work environment I won't be touching it.

Compartmentalization is important in some lines of work.

Why has sec gone secret? :( :s


>Why has sec gone secret? :( :s
I'm sad about it too. I really wanted it to be one of our main boards with good discussion and information, but it was dead compared to our other boards. I understand that we're just getting started, but such an empty board didn't warrant a position in the header when /cyb/ was doing well.

That being said /cyb/ does include cybersecurity (the existing /sec/ threads were merged) and as such there is an opportunity to create the kind of content that would be worthy of a dedicated /sec/. If and when that happens, I would more than happy to restore it to the header.

I hope you can help me in achieving this, lain. Thank you.

hmmm, it's a nice idea but whilst i love cyberpunk i'm not into larping types, think will fill this niche of a good infosec board, hopefully. x

In an effort to promote more discussion of cyberpunk activities related to anonymity, privacy, security, etc. we ask that you try to make posts that are exclusively visual in nature in one of the existing threads. If you genuinely feel your post belongs in a different category, you can still make a new topic, but we are asking you to search before posting. Thank you.
