Which computer security firms supply hacking/virus technology to which countries?
Here's an embarrassing fact: McAfee, Symantec, and Trend Micro secretly armed China with virus technology for years. And they did it right under the noses of White House officials. Click here for details.

Vmyths recently learned Cuba is being armed, and North Korea is almost certainly being armed, too. But we lack "smoking gun" proof. The computer security industry learned a valuable lesson when antivirus firms got caught arming China. Firms won't even admit they arm the U.S., let alone countries hostile to western societies.

We want to know which computer security firms arm which countries with hacking/virus technology. Email any authoritative details to Whisper@SecurityCritics.org, or call Rob Rosenberger at (319) 646-2800, or mail a photocopy to P.O. Box 50, Wellman, IA 52356. All sources will remain confidential.

We want the identities of hackers & virus writers
Police, judges, and reporters will go to great lengths to shield the identity of a hacker or virus writer. We want to obtain authoritative data on the following individuals:
  • A 37yr-old computer programmer arrested at his home in Madrid, Spain on 17 January 2005 for using a "webcam trojan." Police identified the suspect only as "J.A.S." The arrest was dubbed "Operation Tic-Tac."
  • A 16yr-old student arrested in Mississauga, Canada ca. 7 May 2004 for distributing the Randex worm. The youth was apprehended as part of an international police investigation. Vmyths has posted a US$100 reward for authoritative documents showing the suspect's identity.
All of our sources will remain confidential. Email any authoritative documents to Whisper@SecurityCritics.org, or call Rob Rosenberger at (319) 646-2800, or mail a photocopy to P.O. Box 50, Wellman, IA 52356.
