The What's Up or "whatsapp", the same thing, not images but the text messages
as well, and I am sure they monitor "face book" very closely as well.
That lady, is in excuse able,...it may sound like a good excuse, but good
greif, for what ever reason or excuse these people use, they are sick, and
criminals,...What about the children that are the victims, and used/abused
to make the sick movies and photos ?,... They people that buy, or download
that garbage are just as guilty as the scuzz that make it,...If they did not have
customers, and people eager to download the garbage, it would not be as
profitable and such a lucrative market.
Some time back, I was at a store, I had stopped there to use the ATM,
I was in the parking lot, getting ready to leave, when a car pulled in, but
no sooner then the driver started to get out, 3 pick ups (police patrols),
pulled in, and surrounded the car, they pulled the driver out, and hand
cuffed him,...and took his cell phone,..some more officials came, in cars.
The whole thing scared me, I mean this guy parked right next to me, I
was in the middle of it all.
Once everything settled down, I asked one of the Captains, what it
was all about,... kind of surprised me that he politely told me, in a nut
shell. The guy they arrested was a suspect, or known gang leader, involved
in drugs, kiddnapping schemes, extortion, etc,...... they had been monitoring phone
calls and his "watts app" messages, and the dummy had sent a message to one of
his partners or friends, saying where they were, and that they would be
there, at a planned meeting location, in half a hour, ...the police, saw
the message, and dispatched the patrols imediately to the location,
arriveing just a few seconds after the criminal did.....
It is good that they can use modern technology to trap, and even convict
the scuzz butts,..
But it is also, something to think about, even if you are a inoccent law abiding
citizen, but don't really want "who knows who is watching" to know every little
detail about where you are etc.
There have also been cases here, where organized groups, use face book,
to get information on people, family, etc,....they then use the information to
do extortion,.... Using the cell phone, they call the "target" or victim, they usually say they have a family member kidnapped, and
have photos, etc,...the targets/victims , are terrified, and all to often fall for it, and
actually pay the money demanded, only to find out later that the "kidnapped"
person, is fine, and never even was kidnapped.
It is a serious problem here, skype,cell phones, watts app, and things like that
are used by both sides, the criminals, and scuzz butts, and the police as well
There also is a fair amount of publicity, trying to convince the victims, to not respond,
but to contact officials,......they have the means to reverse the situation,
the "attacker" becomes the "victim", maybe it is a violation of privacy, but
"privacy" does not make a imoral or criminal act right, or acceptable, nor
The same, on the internet, their are far to many, "attackers" trying to access
and either do damage, get data they can use, or use the server
as a "bot net" with out the administrators know, (that is what they hope),...http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=130736
What the "attackers" do not know, because of their laziness and
ignorance,... well, what they don't know, is what will catch them, and
reverse the situation. In a nut shell, online, nothing is secret, and nobody
can hide, behind anonymity , proxies, tor browsers, etc. there are ways
to get back to them. People that truely are law abideing and innocent
do not need to worry that much about the "officials" trying to keep the
web and net safe, what they do need to worry about is the "attacker crackers",
that are looking for ways, to rob,extort , or abuse and exploit in anyway
Just my opinion,...I don't use skype,any way, so no big deal.
