Auschwitz Architectural Plans Put On Display In Berlin

Pope visits Auschwitz

Pope visits Auschwitz

In a weird co-incidence that I missed at the time, I’ve just found that the plans for the Auschwitz death camp were put on  display during my Austrian visit earlier this year.   This visit very soon prompted my outburst on the pontificating nutty bishop, Richard Williamson (see The Face of Evil from 20 Feb 2009), especially considering I’d just visited two Jewish cemeteries in Eisenstadt….   (also see Jill’s posting on the area and elsewhere here.)

A few months before this, the plans had been ‘found’ in a Berlin flat and were then bought by the Bild newspaper group as the German State said they were too expensive.

We have to hope that these are authentic because they add crushing evidence against the Holocaust deniers, including the now more ‘accepting’ nutty bishop.

Fritz Darges, one of the last true Nazis (click for German obituary)

Fritz Darges, one of the last true Nazis (click for German obituary)

This week, one of the last fully signed-up and openly unrepentant Nazis died (see Secrets hope as Hitler aide dies).  Apparently he’s left his memoirs which will add new substance to the overall Nazi guilt, especially towards Hitler.  Again, if this is true, it’ll be a wonderful addition to our documented history.

However, it’s a sad indictment on human nature that the personal accounts of 100’s of thousands who witnessed events count for naught…?  Funny that, innit?

One of the Aushwitz Plans

One of the Aushwitz Plans

Bild itself, after the initial display of the Auschwitz plans in it’s offices,  released some pictures and information on it’s website in August.

See English Translation and Original Webpage.  The one that caught my eye is this one at left.

Near the top is a scribble in green ink which has been identified as written in the hand of Himmler, architect of the final solution and a former chicken farmer, famous for selectively breeding white chickens.

This small scribble further implicates the chief Nazis and if it’s all true, shows that their plans for domination and genocide were not thought of in an ad-hoc manner, but were systematically planned many years before.   Only the methods changed as the kill volume increased.

As Bild says:

Remarkable about the plan, which was commissioned by the “construction management of the Waffen SS and police in order, is something else: it proves once again that the mass-production mass murder of European Jews not only with the so-called Wannsee Conference in January 1942 it was decided, but much earlier.

Website Referral Spam and Cyber Security Malware

Fear Uncertainty DoubtRemove Referrals Information from This Website because of Malware

Like many blogs, this website has displayed the last few hits (referrals) that it’s received as a kind of ‘live’ activity recorder and a small service back to the referring website.  However, I’ve had to pull this from my front page because over the last few days, hundreds of malware-laden websites have seemingly broadcasting pings to everyone else….

Anyone unlucky enough to click on these back-links to the ‘referrer’, is then presented with some fake anti-malware scan that’s almost impossible to get away from without resorting to Task Manager.

Analysis and Appearance

The referring link is usually from a sub-domain of an apparently ‘normal’ website (whatever ‘normal’ means, but I hope you know!).  Here’s an example that points to malware:

http://srpvxdd.franklinrealtyvacationrentals.com/page.php?n=overcome-compulsive-overeating

franklinrealtyvacationrentals.com is a normal-looking estate agent’s site in Florida.

This next one points to a blank page, has a similar php ?page= construct, but lacks a sub-domain:

http://sweetepeach.com/page.php?uuu=cube-memory-dane-elec

sweetepeach.com is a website under construction at ixWebHosting, my old host that I left because it was so slow.

And this one is another malware-laden website:

http://www.pbparts.com/error.php?404

pbparts.com appears to be a computer parts on-line store in Arizona.

And here are two web addresses from the same domain!:

http://rlzkiio.tummy2tummy.com/page.php?n=tiered-tulle-dress

http://ziqklvc.tummy2tummy.com/page.php?d=official-ffa-dress

tummy2tummy.com appears to be mother and baby website.

Examples

CyberSecurityWarning1

Cyber Security Warning1

CyberSecurityWarning2

Cyber Security Warning2

CyberSecurityWarning3

Cyber Security Warning3

Here are examples of the typical warning messages after hitting a duff link or two…  These are taken from Firefox 3 & IE8, all fully patched and up-to-date etc.

  • The website sometimes redirects, sometimes not, to the malware-coded location.
  • The message/dialog boxes have a variety of wording and button suggestions
  • Some websites are completely un-closable by normal means and the Task Manager is the only way to get out of a loop
  • There are a variety of files to download from the various websites.  The one in the video below is called “Inst_174s1.exe” – which I’ve seen 3 times now.  I’ve also seen another called “setup_build8_239.exe” which has a standard windows setup icon inside it to ensure it’s apparent legitimacy!

Standard Anti-Virus Failure

The video shows the fake scan and the various failed attempts at closure I made.  The current IP address of the user (myself) shows to add an air of realism to it, although this is easily shown on any webpage.

Fortunately, in this video, IE8, even though the browser privacy and window size & positioning was mucked around by the malware-site, was finally closable with the normal close button at the top right.  On other sites, the only way to get out of the loop in both IE8 and Firefox, was to use Task Manger to crash the process down.  This worked, fortunately.

I downloaded the files purposely on some occasions for analysis….

ESET’s NOD32 (my AV program) failed to detect both these files as bad!  I uploaded both for analysis to ESET and one has since been found to contain a trojan, a variant of Win32/Kryptik.AWY trojan!  This trojan has been in the signature database since 21/10/2009 when NOD32 was the only AntiVirus program to detect it!  So things aren’t that bad.  Presumably, if I’d have ran the programs NOD32 would’ve kicked in, but I haven’t tried that yet.  The setup file was only first detected as malware yesterday, and then only by a few vendors.  The analysis of it’s actions is particularly revealing as along with a shed-load of new registry keys, it also modifies the ‘hosts’ file!

NOD32 wasn’t alone in this scanning detection failure.  I tried the online scanners of Trend, McAfee and AVG on the two files and they all failed to detect anything!  Time constraints meant I didn’t try Kaspersky, Symantech et al, but I’m fairly certain that the same results would’ve happened.

Conclusion

Everything is not as it seems!  Be very careful what you click on!

Send any suspicious file to VirusTotal.com as it has quite a crack at finding out the truth about files from it’s methodology of using most of the Anti-virus vendors.

As for my website here, the recent referrer back-links are now gone as they made me look like a pointer to bad sites, and I’m not.  Whether it’s possible for this sub-domain behaviour to be blocked, probably depends on the website owners, as it’s not the browser’s fault.

What I have noticed, is:

  • A lot of these malware sites are hosted at my old crap host, ixWebhosting.com  (If I recall, a setting exists to block sub-domain creation)
  • A lot of host sites are in Arizona, Florida and Utah
  • A lot of malware sites can be traced back to China & eastern European states.

Make of that what you will.  If I spot any more ‘tendencies’ or ‘co-incidences’, I’ll add them to the list.

Easter Island not a Treasure Chest

Tests raise life extension hopes – see news here

Possibly, this stuff, rapamycin, could be the next big internet scam.  Acai berries are nearly done, same as Green Tea and Wheat Grass.

Rapamycin

It’s an anti-biotic, found in 1970 on the bleak Pacific island called Easter Island.  I’ve mentioned this place previously as a comparative parable of our times here:

http://strangelyperfect.tv/346/easter-island-modern-history-in-miniature/

Global Survival of the Human Race

Earthrise

Earthrise

And in a miraculous co-incidence, we are currently in conference to mitigate Climate Change(see here).  A noted bunch of academics are saying that Kyoto was a waste of time (history proves this as emissions reductions and postitive action, not words, has been minimal), see here.  Prince Charles in last night’s Dimbleby Lecture stressed the importance of living within our energy means.

So it’s all there, the willpower and the knowledge within our world leaders.

Now what we need is for the leaders to lead by example!

It’s simply not good enough to flit around in massive cars, telling everyone to button down their consumption.

To demonstrably lead, you must do as you expect others to do.  Or nothing will change.

Easter Island

Easter Island

Easter Island

Easter Island is a wonderful example, in miniture, of the Earth.  It had it’s leaders and it’s religions.  It had literature and art.  It had it’s conflict over limited resources.

It’s almost barren and windswept, lost in an ocean, a shadow of it’s former self.  Trees weren’t growing as there were no seeds.  Everything was chopped down and burnt in a last desparate struggle to survive by it’s inhabitants.

Easter Island Moai

Easter Island Moai

The few survivors, when found, were reduced to a bestial existence, incapable of even contemplating the construction of any more statues, for which the Island is now famous.

This will be us in our world, lost in the empty blackness of space, if we don’t do something now.

For our continued existence, it’s not rapamycin that we need to extend our lives.  What we need is to realise that we live on a round world with limited resources.  That’s all.

Robert G Allen, Grants, and a Credit Card Slimeball

Introduction

This is a small investigation into mail lists and scammy companies.  Some companies are fine, but I always go by the adage to judge a man by the company he keeps.  This shows how lists spread far beyond their initial purpose when you sign up for something.  It also shows how the privacy policies of these marketting websites are just words wrapped in fluff.

Robert G Allen runs ‘courses’ and is highly public in his utterances.  His website is http://web.archive.org/web/20090106001934/http://robertallenmedia.com/

Robert G AllenHere you’ll find the chubby faced entrepreneur open and engaging, and in common with all such sites, remarkably thin in actual methods used despite the vast amount of time extolling their virtues.  They will always say it’s “to protect our secrets” etc.

Funnily enough, when EasyJet was started by Stelios Haji-Ioannou, I remember him going on national telly and saying “I’m starting a new airline – we are different because we are cheap and there are no frills” and it didn’t do him any harm.

Whatever.

The point is that having ‘signed’ up for three scammy looking enterprises, the flood of spam I initially received has now turned into a deluge.  I’m now definitely one of the

“business opportunity enthusiasts who have invested (…) to learn how to make money using Incentivized Freebie Websites”!!! – as I said here.

Spam

The fact that Bobbie Allen has a 365 day money-back guarantee and a nice Reno address is besides the point.  Myself, Allen, Grants scams, EBay Success schemes, Christian Debt Solutions and Cash For Gold (to name several, but not all);   we are all now intimately connected by email lists which are passed around with gay abandon as proven in the link above to Monica St John’s Project Payday.  A secret once out is no longer a secret, and it’s no good these sites in their ‘policies’ saying spam is forbidden by their affiliates, which they do, because they don’t care.  They’ve got the money;  and the sites, as shown by the connections below, breed like rabbits!  Several have only lasted a week, a week when they can scam a few folk and then bog off.

Links and Query Strings

The connections run very deep.  While Robert Allen is at robertallenmedia.com, it’s accessed by these links from 2 weeks of spam mail relating to various subjects I’ve listed.

Robert Allen doesn’t get linked to by accident, remember.  He is getting money from them and because of that point, he’s as much part of it as anyone.

You’ll see that there are various links back to similar sounding websites,  most of which pointed to grantsforcitizens.org  initially.  All email was sent to the same person ‘Murdon’, an alias I used only once.  Both websites use the annoying helpful popups as you try to close them down, (something that my webhost has started doing so they need telling off )!  The last three are when ‘Murdon’ passed into someone else’s control.   Epic Media Solutions was a common factor in these.  They are listed in the order received;

  • – Robert Allen! (Dabblers need not apply)
  • – Robert Allen! (Dabblers need not apply)

From the desk of Robert Miller1 President, GrantsForCitizens.org Massillon, Ohio

Robert Miller?

The similarities in this are obvious.  All these addresses (except the last three) redirect to either Robert Allen as shown or else the odious avatar of Robert Miller, terribly concerned about the current financial crisis.  He’s so concerned that he forgot to leave any real USA contacts in any of the T&C links even though it’s all about US grants!  He’s a busy man.  He has buried a statement from LANETE ENTERPRISES LTD WHOSE REGISTERED ADDRESS IS 3, BELL LANE, GIBRALTAR and helpfully makes a teeny comment that the business is subject to the laws of Nicosia in Cyprus!

Author’s Note: if you wish to be subject to the laws of Cyprus but make a claim against someone in Gibraltar regarding US Gov’t Grants – it’s up to you…

Continuing Links

Concurrent with the above, I also signed up to a scheme using the alias, ‘morton House’.  It’s a good idea to use slightly wrong case as it shows that automation has missed it and allows better traceability…  The signup time was about halfway down the above list.

This bunch start with eBay websites featuring an equally obnoxiously cheery avatar purporting to be Michael Green.  It the same financial tale of woe and optimism.  Robert Allen appears again!  It then morphs into Acai shite.

  • – supposedly from Robert Allen! (Dabblers need not apply) – but the redirection goes to the previous Acai shit
  • – supposedly from Free Federal Grant Software – but the redirection goes to the previous Acai shit, again.

All the above used a new type of string (for me) in their spam.  Like so:

Sometimes this can be very large and references pictures etc

Both Murdon & morton House were sent mail from Citizen Grant Notification. This proves they are accessing the same email lists.  Ressourcehurtcentral.com sent a lot.  They always redirected to which is part of one of the most odious legitimate companies on the world.  Ressourcehurtcentral.com in a web browser calls itself InteractiveMediaSpaces.com and it’s a very soothing, professional-looking space…..  Helpfully, they provide the following comforting sentiment from their office in 73 Greentree Dr Suite #81, Dover, DE 19904

Email Anti-Spam Policy:

If you believe you have received an unsolicited commercial email from Interactive Media Spaces on behalf of any of our advertisers, please send an email (with the reported unsolicited commercial email included or attached with the ‘full header’) to: [email protected]

So yes, I actually do believe I received a Niagara of unsolicited mail from them.  When I subscribed I subscribed to different addresses altogether.  I shouldn’t have to unsubscribe!  I shouldn’t be there in the first place!  They can fuck right off with that one if they think I’m going to cut the headers from this pile of crap….

…calm down Reesy!  Check at the bottom of the page…

Oh Yes.  They have a blanket email removal service – right at the fucking bottom!

Well that’s enough on them.  UPDATE:  I did as I was told.  This came back:

The following message to <[email protected]> was undeliverable.
The reason for the problem:

You’ve got to laugh.

These fat fuckers deserve a paragraph or two here. Their two gaffers seem to be involved in the redistribution of wealth from poor people in financial difficulties up to nice middle America Sports College things, Republican Party donations – as well as increasing the physical bulk of the head banker.  See:

How Centennial Credit Card Terms & Conditions actually Redistribute Wealth Upwards!

….you understand that your initial credit limit will be at least $250.00 and the following fees will be billed to your first statement: Annual Fee of $48.00, Account Set-Up Fee of $29.00, Program Fee of $95.00, Monthly Servicing Fee of $7.00, and an Additional Card Fee of $20.00 per card (if applicable).

Well that’s what it says.  So you borrow $250 and are instantly charged $179!

…well not quite.  Many people on phoning FPB claim that the company says it’s never received stuff and thus charge the ‘customer’ another $29 for late payment.  Well that’s okay and fair.

…apart from the internet access fee and the late and overlimit fees?  Yes….

– Because you only have access to $71 from the $250 you think you have after the first month, you may easily go over $250.  Then you are billed $29.  So you re-arrange the credit limit to cover this for which you are charged $25.

This is exactly the trap people fall into.  To borrow $72 you have to pay back $304 which kind-of makes a mockery of the 9.9% APR!!!

It doesn’t stop there though.  If you are credit-worthy, your limit is automatically increased to say, $500.  But don’t forget the $25 credit limit change fee!!!  Ha Ha.

Conclusion

Needless to say, I’m putting the Centennial Credit Card into the ‘No’ pile along with everything else.  In fact, as a special consideration, First Premier Bank of Sioux Falls are going straight down the German Toilet.  I advise everyone to do the same who gets a spam from them like this.   This is my gift to FPB:

Audio clip: Adobe Flash Player (version 9 or above) is required to play this audio clip. Download the latest version here. You also need to have JavaScript enabled in your browser.

All future spam is going straight in the bin as time’s too short to analyse further.  Thank god for Mailwasher Pro!!  In fact, because FPB are so crap, my well-known bad taste has returned, just for them…
