June 25, 2019

DarkCyber for June 25, 2019, is now available at www.arnoldit.com/wordpress and on Vimeo at https://www.vimeo.com/343915592 .

The program is a production of Stephen E Arnold. It is the only weekly video news shows focusing on the Dark Web, cybercrime, and lesser known Internet services.

This week’s story line up includes: Twitch.tv covers of the Hong Kong protests when YouTube did not; Cellebrite technology unlocks any mobile phone; Virsec’s Shadow Broker report; DarkCyber’s new coverage of intelware for government use; and French police shut down a contraband market with 7,000 customers.

This week’s feature is a report about Amazon Twitch.tv’ live coverage of the Hong Kong extradition protest. The free service streamed programs which provided continuous views of official announcements, confrontations between protestors and police, and stunning images of hundreds of thousands of Hong Kong residents protesting. One stream features nine panels of live video. Each panel provided live video of different protest locations. YouTube Live did not stream the event. Queries about the Hong Kong protest returned hits to archived video of protests. DarkCyber reports that Twitch.tv’s coverage of this important event marks a turning point for both Amazon and for Google.

Other stories covered in this week’s DarkCyber video news program are:

Cellebrite, a company specializing in services for law enforcement and intelligence agencies, announced an important technology achievement. The company can now unlock and access information on any Android or Apple iPhone. Cellebrite’s innovation provides access to iPhones running the most recent version of iOS. Plus, with the new technology, cyber labs will be able to unlock these devices on their premises.

With the surge in ransomware and the stepped up attacks on US cities’ networks, the Virsec white paper “How the Shadow Brokers have Permanently Changed the Cybersecurity Landscape” is a timely and important report. DarkCyber highlights the contents of this free document and explains how a person can obtain a copy of the report.

French police continued its crackdown on hidden Web sites selling contraband. In simultaneous raids in Bordeaux, Nice, and other cities, authorities arrested three individuals believed to be the operators of the ecommerce site. The French Deep Web Market sold drugs, weapons, and forged documents. The operation served more than 5,000 customers and relied on about 700 vendors. Police seized data, hardware, and software.

The final story reports that each weekly video will feature intelligence and investigative software. Systems profiled will make it possible for investigators and intelligence professionals to perform functions like geo-fencing via graphical interfaces, no programming by the user will be required. The story highlights a free bundle of policeware gathered by a former FBI professional. DarkCyber explains how to obtain more than 36 software tools without charge.

DarkCyber video news is a weekly program. It contains no advertising, and it is designed for law enforcement, security, and intelligence professionals interested in software, new developments, and investigative innovations. New programs become available on Tuesday of each week. Programs are available via YouTube and Vimeo.
