WikiLeaks posts 400 gigabytes of encrypted ‘insurance’ data online
RT ^ | 8/18/13

Posted on 08/18/2013 5:13:43 AM PDT by Libloather

WikiLeaks has released a trove of encrypted “insurance” data on Twitter and Facebook. The data can’t be read without an encryption key, but the movement’s supporters say that could be published later in case anything happens to leading WikiLeaks figures.

The whistleblowing organization published links for a massive 400 gigabytes worth of encrypted data it described as “insurance documents” on its Twitter and Facebook accounts. It is possible to download the files but advanced encoding prevents them from being opened.

TIME reporter calls for drone strike on WikiLeaks founder Assange

A senior American correspondent has indirectly called on the US government to kill WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange by a drone strike.

“I can’t wait to write a defense of the drone strike that takes out Julian Assange,” Time Magazine’s senior national correspondent Michael Grunwald tweeted on Saturday.

All will be fine once the navigators get out there and start collecting out private information.

If this is insurance policy data (i.e. name, DOB, social security, parental names, employment and medical histories) on hundreds of millions of Americans, the credit bureaus are gonna be buried in identity fraud cases in the years ahead.

Not that kind of insurance, but a threat that if anything happens to to Julia Asshinge, something enormous (or many somethings) will be released. I am not impressed with Wikileaks, as they just seem to want to harm conservatives politically.

EXACTLY TRUE !!
Of course you can trust the government who data mines you, and REQUIRES your information to go online
Of course , that assumes that they have some kind of secure data protection , or encription .
Thats where Wikileaks gets most of its information ..all online !
What could go wrong ?
I am sure that the Russian Mafia , or the Liberians have all been arrested and don't have access to computers. /s

Some hacker group will probably manage to decrypt it and then wikileaks will have no insurance. Assange will be sitting in a beach somewhere and a hellfire missile will mysteriously emerge from the clouds and take him out.

I’m pretty sure that’s not the only tidbit of information they have as insurance.

This might get very interesting!

bkmark ... for a fuller read of the encrypted docs. zer0 and sixty percent or more of congress needs for all this info to be released ... then it will be fun to watch the lame-stream try to bury it. Thank Goodness I bought popcorn.

This isn’t the first time Wikileaks has put an encrypted bomb. There was another several years ago that as far as I know still hasn’t been cracked.

FR has been broken since at least 05:00 this morning. Has anyone divulged what this recurring problem is and what the permanent solution is? I’m guessing a reboot or some database tweak fixes it temporarily, but it seems to come back ever week or two.

This is the first observation I have seen about it today. Is anyone else seeing the truncation problem?

Remember when Assange was a HERO to reprters like this one, when the info getting out hurt Bush?

Now that the info endangers Obama and Democrats, he is an ENEMY OF THE STATE who must be killed by a drone strike.

They don’t even care about the hypocrisy anymore.

Sounds to me like Julian Assange is really annoyed that everyone forgot about the slimy rapist and moved on. This is a big, global “LOOK AT ME!!!” aimed at the U.S., just one day after he came out in praise of Ron and Rand Paul.

Brought to you by the same zealots that coined “River Keepers” of the Stasi EPA — The Clinton’s. There is too too much sh!t in this bill to be all new.

Brought to you by the same people that coined the words “River Keepers,” the wide, wide area river/stream/lake basin EPA ecoNazis who would have had complete control under Bill/Hill’s plans for the environment had not 1994 stopped them.

This Affordable Care Act was what approaching 2000 pages? No one here really thinks these fools up in Congress actually put all that together, do they? This act is an archived rehash of HillaryCare, done by her secret interested-party groups and updated with Obama’s latest socialist agenda goals (i.e., actually destroy the country through drastically increased costs, taxes, and penalties that will eventually require nationalization of all this nation’s assets).

“”This might get very interesting!”

I think the definition of insurance here is different from what you might sell and the rest of us might buy.

This reminds us of the mafia and its “insurance” with people who have wanted to expose their criminal actions.
