Submitted by

thomasdn writes "In this truly fascinating story, "Mr. X" — who has been working for 10 years inside the international child porn industry — gives us technical details about the architecture of the systems and the methods used for distributing child pornography. Mr. X writes: 'Each one who has little technical knowledge will [understand] the importance and implications of this... But what I have to report to you is much more significant than this, and maybe they will finally understand to what extent the public is cheated by the greedy politicians who CANNOT DO ANYTHING against child pornography but use it as a means to justify total monitoring.'"

thomasdn writes "The encryption password for a secret document relating to the war in Afghanistan has been cracked. The password is revealed on the Wikileaks website. 'NATO in Afghanistan: Master Narrative' is the title of the secret document that instructs NATO representatives on which 'story' to give journalists — and which story to avoid giving. The document could be found in encrypted form on the Pentagon Central Command (CENTCOM) website. However, it seems that the entire site has been taken offline in response to the revelation of the password. Parts of the site can still be seen in Google's cache."
