WARNING:


As some of you may know, Gamma International sells a product called Finfisher to oppressive governments to hunt down and kill dissidents. They use weaponized malware that gives you complete control over the targets computer and mobile devices. This government grade malware has recently been released to the public for hope of finding a way to combat it. Be warned that in the meantime while security experts review the data, scammers and hackers will likely try to abuse this malware by trying to take over mining farms, hacking exchanges, taking control of your PC and impersonating individuals by using their computers.



For developers looking to find weaknesses and protect people from this software, I will provide the direct link to WikiLeaks. If you do not know how to handle something like this, do not download the files period!
Be warned! It is fully weaponized!
Going to link to it here: https://wikileaks.org/spyfiles4/

Some usage information:

Proceed with caution: " In order to prevent any accidental execution and infection, the following files have been renamed and compressed in password protected archives (the password is "infected"). They are weaponised malware, so handle carefully."

And remember! Have a fun time in crypto currencies! Smiley

Why was this moved to the off topic section? It details with the crypto currency scammers utilizing the malware for malicious intent.

This is some scary shit. Hopefully we find it's weaknesses soon!

It's a real nasty piece of software. It was used to curb the Arab spring.

Quote
The software suite, which the company calls "Remote Monitoring and Deployment Solutions" has the ability to take control of target computers and capture even encrypted data and communications. Using "enhanced remote deployment methods" it can install software on target computers. An "IT Intrusion Training Program" is offered which includes training in methods and techniques and in use of the company supplied software.
