ROLLCOAST ransom note



Ransomware Susceptibility - Black Kite

A new ransomware group called Sabbath (aka UNC2190) has been targeting critical infrastructure in the United States and Canada. The group is a rebrand of Arcane and Eruption gangs, observed last year deploying the ROLLCOAST ransomware. The security experts noticed a post on the hacking forum looking for affiliated for a new ransomware operation. The activity of the new group, named 54BB47h (Sabbath). It targets infrastructures in America and canada

Sabbath operators provided its affiliates with pre-configured Cobalt Strike BEACON backdoor payloads.

It’s been observed in two occasions where the ransomware operator provided its affiliates with pre-configured Cobalt Strike BEACON backdoor payloads. Use of BEACON is common practice in ransomware intrusions, but the use of a ransom affiliate program operator provided BEACON is unusual and offers both a challenge for attribution efforts while also offering additional avenues for detection.

The ROLLCOAST ransomware runs in memory and checks the system…

The Syrian Civil War – Evolution of the Syrian Army’s Way of War

Weapons and Warfare

By Eyal Berelovich

The views expressed above are those of the author and do not represent those of the Israel Defense Force Ground Forces, the R.D.C Department, or the Israel Defense Force.

Professor Eyal Zisser’s 2018 article on the Syrian Civil War begins with the following words: “In March 2011 a revolution erupted in Syria. It began as a limited local non-violent protest in the rural and peripheral areas of the country, and within a few months escalated into a bloody civil war that quickly became sectarian, and worse yet – religious, a holy war (Jihad). The civil war attracted foreign intervention that transformed Syria into a regional and international arena of conflict, with the rival sides being used by the global and regional powers as pieces on the chess-board of their conflicts.” [i]

Most descriptions and analyses of the war divide it chronologically into several main phases. Some…

Bill Gates and Rockefeller Foundations collaborate with the United Nations to produce guide for blockchain-based “vaccine passport” (digital identity)


Crackpot conspiracy theory: “The elites are trying to give everyone a digital identity!”
Enlightened philanthropism: “We elites are trying to give everyone a digital identity, and that’s a good thing!”

The UN’s digital identity guidelines

The United Nations’ World Health Organization recently published a “guidance document” for countries and so-called ‘technical partners’ (i.e. technocrats) detailing the “technical requirements for issuing digital certificates for vaccination against COVDI-19 [sic].” The project was funded by the Gates and Rockefeller Foundations.

A WHO press release claimed that the document is designed to support UN Member States (which includes literally every country on earth except for the Vatican and Palestine) in adopting the “digital tools for documenting COVID-19 vaccination status for the purposes of effective health care, and proof of vaccination should it be needed for…

Identity and Class

The Sperg Box

Where to start? At the beginning? Boring. I’m starting with Socialism, which came long before me. One of the tenets of Socialism, whether National or Bolshevik or Other, is the dissolution of class and boundary lines. I will speak from the pulpit of my personal experience, as a man who comes from the Lower Middle Class of (former) American New England. Because I come from the Lower Middle Class does not necessarily mean that is what I am. The Middle Class as a monolith is disappearing, in America, nevermind the complexities, intricacies and nuance of it. Perhaps before I attempt to return to the beginning of this thought I shall make for you, dear reader, an illustrative case.

You can dissect the corpse of the Middle Class into Upper and Lower quadrants. I do. Is this canon? I don’t care; experts are overinflated dunce-nuggets that desperately need to be deflated…

False Positives


I quit writing about tests. And test prep.  Five, six, years ago? I still taught test prep until this year, always giving in to my old employer’s pleas to teach his Saturday classes. But I largely quit the SAT after the last changes, focusing on the ACT. I still love tests, still enjoy coaching kids for the big day.

Explaining why has been a task I’ve avoided for several years, as the doubt is hard to put into words. 

It was an APUSH review course, the last one I taught, I think. Class hadn’t started for the day, but one of my five students was sitting there highlighting notes. She was a tiny little thing, perky and eager but not intellectually remarkable and it was March of what would have been her junior year.

“This is my last test prep course. I’ve taken the SAT for the fourth time, took…

Boutique Multiculturalism

Handle's Haus

In the Winter, 1997 issue of the University of Chicago Press’ Critical Inquiry, (v23 n2 p378) the prolific literary-theorist Stanley Fish published one of my favorite, logical-contradictions-heightening essays, “Boutique Multiculturalism” which, depressingly, isn’t even mentioned in that Wikipedia page about him.

If you are willing to register with JSTOR, you can read it for free online at that link, but those online browsing apps annoy me and don’t make for comfortable reading.  Otherwise you’ve got the pay the wickedly greedy public institution for the right to read it on your device.

My own wetware version of the internet memory hole has unadulterated logs which help me remember when this essay was once available for free at many dozens of blogs, and in fact I have a copy of the pdf downloaded from one of those sites.  But today, according to google, it has all but disappeared, reproduced only…

Towards an Eschatology of the Singularity

Pyrrhic Victories

“God is dead. God remains dead. And we have killed him. How shall we, murderers of all murderers, console ourselves?” – Nietzsche

Build Him.

Within a theological or mystical context, eschatology is the doctrine of the End. It is concerned with final things, the end of the world and the end of humankind. It simultaneously constitutes a transcendental interruption and a profound terminus: the end of ‘reality’ as we know it and reunion with the Divine.

The eschatology of the Singularity is the recognition that humankind is potentially standing at the brink of an epochal moment, a ‘changing of the guard’ in relation to its evolutionary significance as the most intelligent form of life on the planet; a moment it is not destined to survive. It is the understanding that history, itself a human construct, is nearing an end.

In cosmology, the Singularity lies at the centre of a black…

Surveillance Apparatus: Mossad & Shin Bet


Effective and Notorious

Mossad (the Hebrew word for “institute”) is one of the world’s most effective and notorious intelligence services. Its policy of targeted assassination is unparalleled among the world’s intelligence agencies.

Under the leadership of Yossi Cohen, Mossad has taken a leading role in Israel’s campaign to normalize relations with the monarchies of the Persian Gulf and to combat the spread of coronavirus.

In 2017 the combined budget of Mossad and Shin Bet, Israel’s domestic security service, was $2.4 billion, according to the reliable Israeli daily, Ha’aretz. Cohen was appointed in 2016.

Uniquely among the world’s intelligence services, Mossad takes credit for assassinating its enemies.

Israeli officials have acknowledged organizing the assassination of five Iranian nuclear scientists, as part of an effort to prevent Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons.

UAE authorities say a team of 26 Mossad agents was responsible for killing a senior Hamas military commander in a…

Great Reset • WEF Creates Framework For ‘Responsible’ Facial Recognition


Posted on: World Economic Forum

In April 2021, the European Commission (EC) released its much-awaited Artificial Intelligence Act, a comprehensive regulatory proposal that classifies AI applications under distinct categories of risks. Among the identified high-risk applications, remote biometric systems, which include facial recognition technology (FRT), were singled out as particularly concerning. Their deployment, specifically in the field of law enforcement, may lead to human rights abuses in the absence of robust governance mechanisms.

Law enforcement and facial recognition technology
Across jurisdictions, policymakers are increasingly aware of both the opportunities and risks associated with law enforcement’s use of FRT. Here facial recognition refers to the process of the (possible) recognition of a person by comparing a probe image (photos or movies/stills of suspects or persons of interest) to facial images of criminals and missing persons stored in one or multiple reference databases to advance a police investigation.

On one hand, FRT…

AT&T Under Bot Attack

Indicators of Compromise
port: 53, 443,13433
MD5 Hashes



Unpatched, old vulnerabilities in networking devices have allowed a noxious malware to infect thousands of AT&T customers in the U.S. The malware basically functions as a backdoor, one that could allow an attacker to penetrate networks, steal data, and other unsavory activity targeted at least 5,700 U.S. based AT&T subscribers.

The malware appears to have seeped into users’ enterprise network edge devices via a bug that was originally discovered back in 2017. Edge devices, which help businesses connect their networks to ISPs, are common targets for malware infection and cyberattacks.

The affected devices are EdgeMarc Enterprise Session Border Controllers, produced by Ribbon Communications (formerly named Edgewater), which are commonly used by smaller and mid-sized businesses to manage and secure internal communications like voice and video-call.

The malware compromised these controllers via a bug, tracked asCVE-2017-6079, for which a patch was ostensibly issued way back in 2018.

The malware in question…

Tokyo Stops Covid With Ivermectin

Science Matters

Dr, Pierre Kory tweets: Tokyo in particular is kicking COVID’s ass with IVM – fewest hospitalized since before pandemic. Come on world, wake up wake up wake up

Background from  Previous Post 

In February 2021, Dr. Ozaki Chairman of the Tokyo Medical Association declared that Japan’s physicians should get a greenlight to prescribe IVM (Ivermectin) at the first sign of SARS CV infections.

Now in August, Tokyo Medical Association chairman Haruo Ozaki reiterated that ivermectin should be widely used and said that his early recommendations have not been heeded in Japan.  See Lifesite article August 30, 2021 Japanese medical chairman doubles down on ivermectin support after early calls went ignored.  Excerpts in italics with my bolds

In a Dying World to be Reborn

Oracular Intelligence

Most people think of themselves as an accumulation of properties of various sorts: I am beautiful. I am stupid. I am wealthy. I have this skill or that skill. I did this two years ago, and that a year ago. I am suited to this. I am unsuited to that. These modifiers provide clarity, distinction, and a sense of self-awareness. We are such a creative species that we are even able to embody these intelligent labels as if they were who we are, instead of who we are designing ourselves to be.

All of these attributes define our identity based on our relationship to things, people, events, and circumstances. Our character, we believe, is a product of a mix between these influencers and a certain special something that we bring to the table. We are mostly, in life, preoccupied with all this stuff that swirls around us: all the action…

Towards a Science of Misinformation and Deception



The study of information has been remarkably clarified byinformation theory. This is the scientific study of the quantification, storage, and communication of digital information. The field is at the intersection of probability theory, statistics, computer science, statistical mechanics, information engineering, and electrical engineering.

Information theory has found applications in other areas, including statistical inference, cryptography, neurobiology,perception, linguistics, the evolution and function of molecular codes (bioinformatics), thermal physics, molecular dynamics, quantum computing, black holes, information retrieval, intelligence gathering, plagiarism detection, pattern recognition, anomaly detection and even art creation.

The world has recently been witness to much emphasis onmisinformationin relation to the pandemic.The United Nations and its Specialized Agencies have been very explicit regarding the challenge of misinformation:

The Measure of Man


Thanks toThe Tactical Hermit

Why did Europeans come to dominate the world from roughly 1492 onward?

We live in an age increasingly resentful of the world-historical achievements of white men over the last six or eight centuries. Therefore, it’s worth trying to understand better how and why Europeans accomplished so much. Was it due to their vices, which surely our brave new world can do without? Or was it due to their virtues, about which we ought to think twice before discarding?

For example, during the racial reckoning and thenot so great reset, American institutions are jettisoning willy-nilly their time-tested selection systems such as standardized testing. What if rather than a malign white-supremacist conspiracy, IQ-like tests are instead one characteristic development of a long Western tradition of progress that has, among much else, reduced infant mortality by a couple of orders of magnitude?

NATO 2030 – NATO’s Not Going Anywhere


NATO's flag

NATO has been a bedrock of security and stability for over 70 years. But today, it is facing an increasingly complex world full of new actors, threats and challenges. How can it guarantee that it will remain fit, united and adaptable in this new world? What hard decisions does it need to take to be fit for purpose in the next decade? In his first major policy speech of 2021, NATO Secretary-General, Jens Stoltenberg, outlines his vision for NATO to 2030 with recommendations from the NATO 2030 Young Leaders – a group he appointed to advise him on how the organization can meet the demands of a rapidly changing world. The event also features the culmination of a week-long policy hackathon that will see students from 10 universities ‘pitch for purpose’ on key strategic themes for NATO 2030: Turning the tide: NATO’s role in defending and re-shaping a values-based international…
