Hackers trace ISIS Twitter accounts back to internet addresses linked to Department of Work and Pensions

 

Teenage computer experts unveil astonishing web of unpublicised interactions linking extremist social media mouthpieces to the British government.

 

 

Hackers have claimed that a number of Islamic State supporters’ social media accounts are being run from internet addresses linked to the Department of Work and Pensions.

A group of four young computer experts who call themselves VandaSec have unearthed evidence indicating that at least three ISIS-supporting accounts can be traced back to the DWP’s London offices.

Every computer and mobile phone logs onto the internet using an IP address, which is a type of identification number.

The hacking collective showed Mirror Online details of the IP addresses used by a trio of separate digital jihadis to access Twitter accounts, which were then used to carry out online recruitment and propaganda campaigns.

At first glance, the IP addresses seem to be based in Saudi Arabia, but upon further inspection using specialist tools they appeared to link back to the DWP.

“Don’t you think that’s strange?” one of the hackers asked Mirror Online. “We traced these accounts back to London, the home of the British intelligence services.”

VandaSec’s work has sparked wild rumours suggesting someone inside the DWP is running ISIS-supporting accounts, or they were created by intelligence services as a honeypot to trap wannabe jihadis.

However, when Mirror Online traced the IP addresses obtained by VandaSec, we found they actually pointed to a series of unpublicised transactions between Britain and Saudi Arabia.

We learned that the British government sold on a large number of IP addresses to two Saudi Arabian firms.

After the sale completed in October of this year, they were used by extremists to spread their message of hate.

Jamie Turner, an expert from a firm called PCA Predict, discovered a record of the sale of IP addresses, and found a large number were transferred to Saudi Arabia in October of this year.

He told us it was likely the IP addresses could still be traced back to the DWP because records of the addresses had not yet been fully updated.

The Cabinet Office has now admitted to selling the IP addresses on to Saudi Telecom and the Saudi-based Mobile Telecommunications Company earlier this year as part of a wider drive to get rid of a large number of the DWP’s IP addresses.

It said the British government can have no control over how these addresses are used after the sale.

A Cabinet Office spokesperson said: “The government owns millions of unused IP addresses which we are selling to get a good return for hardworking taxpayers.

“We have sold a number of these addresses to telecoms companies both in the UK and internationally to allow their customers to connect to the internet.

“We think carefully about which companies we sell addresses to, but how their customers use this internet connection is beyond our control.”

The government did not reveal how much money was made from selling the IP addresses to the pair of Saudi firms, because it regards this information as commercially sensitive.

    What an absolute insult to our nation.
    So selling IP addresses to the Saud’s is ok. Then this proves beyond doubt that the DWP is a damned disgrace and very dangerous. Caught again Filthy Britain.

With some exciting comments that indicate a physical 3D as well as spiritual interdinemsional KEY, way forward, to all that we face , this Satanic Saturn worshipping, matrix that’s enveloped us for 2000 plus years.

        I am on the case as a spiritualwarrior, in this interdimensional, occult war that’s going on. Thankyou for all your replies, I have many branches trains of thought, in response to your replies, goodnight rabbit

      • Hi Rabbit, hope youre ok. The plot is thickening over at flights over Antarctica. it all might seem by the by, and beside the point. When we arrive at realisations. They are explosive. They are planks, towards something else. Weapons in our arsenal. I think the positive spiritual realms are helping me, firing me up, encouraging me, to obsess down this topic. Please see tonights comments which I hope youll find interesting. Why does seeing the words United Nations on the tv screen make me want to vomit rabbit? I think ill watch something else.

        Anyway
        I hope youre ok, and your lungs. I will pray for your lungs, use mental focus, via quantum entanglement, and yes, I know theres a profound spiritual aspect to quantum entanglement, itso ne and the same. Its the Father God behind the Polaris star. And His son Jesus. Ill ask you about Jesus in another post.

        Take H&B zinc gluconate 30mg, and take 200mcg of selenium per day. Eat lots of cooked vegetables. And some animal protein daily. And take a digestive aid, since toxins from the gut, from poorly digested food, its all complex but in a nutshell, goes to the liver, and also goes to the lymph system, and basically its toxic. And try and eat lots of cooked vegetables daily, eat them as medicine between meals, even if you don’t enjoy them. This will all help, you detoxify from chemtrails.

        I am fascinated and interested, you have had, and still have, a Supernatural life with a personal relationship with Him. I would like to have this. I still want a beautiful wife, and children. But id also like this.
        – I wonder what strange exciting mindblowing metaphysical things you have seen, and felt, by communicating with Him
        – I also am intrigued, if you have a personal relationship and have experienced such Divine Supernatural things. Surely this is because God has decided you wouldn’t put this to waste. So im imagining you have ….been an Agent of God, and done good for people and the world , where you can.
        I am having trouble understanding totally, what you meant, where you said, you have a Supernatural life.
        But it gives me reassurance, we are not alone. In this NWO battle

        To end Rabbit, I hope this is interesting and helpful

    I have watched many videos now on the flat/hollow earth. No conclusive proof in my experience, Jesus being King of Kings is conclusive, more proof to come.

    • Thank you for visiting my humble web-site. You have found a source for possibly the best probiotic beverages in the world. Kefir is something you can make at home for the cost of milk. You need no fancy equipment. All you need is a glass jar, a source of good milk, and some real kefir grains.

    • Youre right. The debate and analysis, has moved on. We know dubay is Crown Jesuit CIA Agent Dubay enjoying an existence in Thailand. Thisnis clear
      Flat earth is a disnfo rabbit hole that absorbs energy, valuable truthseeker energy, and leads to nowhere
      Ive only wasted a few days before, with Henrys and other commenters, help realsisning, Dubays an Agent
      But does that mean we throw the baby out with the bathwater?
      No, I don’t think it does
      I think the whole reason TPTB created eric dubay. Is because they realised too many intelligentnpeople on this planet (certainly not me), will put 2 and 2 together, and realise, the pleanet earth the BBC, and TPTB, and school and university txtbooks since weve been born
      IS A LIE
      We are all on the case here rabbit, at tapblog. Im no good at maths. But I can contribute in other ways. We are going to nail these fuc8ers, who have abused us these last 2000+years
      Goodnight
