UPDATE: Why I’m no longer covering Corey Goode and the Full Disclosure Movement “Annette O’Toole w/ Dark Journalist: The ART of the STEAL! New Age DEEP STATE (Pt 5)”


 
 
Aloha, hi Everyone!
 
Please accept my sincerest apology’s for the lack of published posts or feedback over the last few months, I’ve been experiencing very difficult, and dense energy’s on many levels which have included energetic attacks that have been quite challenging to deal with.
 
At this time I’m removing my support from Corey Goode and the Full Disclosure Now movement, the reasons why are explained in my interview with Dark Journalist.
 
As mentioned in the post interview statement below the video, I’m taking hiatus for much needed healing time and to find part time work.
  
I intended on posting my letter to Corey with the interview, along with chat messages from Roger which back-up my claims. Unfortunately WordPress no longer allows us to post documents, so upon request written documentation will be made available by email at ascendingstarseed@gmail.com
 
The interview was conducted 2-3 weeks ago, since then my perspective on Corey has changed somewhat and there were a few things we didn’t have time to cover in the interview. See my post interview statement below the video description for additional details.
 
Much love and thanks to everyone for your support over the last seven years, it’s been a team effort and a journey I couldn’t have made without the financial support and encouragement from readers like yourself! The last 6-9 months I’ve been struggling to create income so I can continue publishing without asking for donations, that struggle is detailed further in my interview.
 
So please bear with me as I heal, re-group and forge a new path for myself and this blog, “2012 The Awakening” to move forward on.
 
I wish to express the deepest heartfelt gratitude to everyone who’s generously stepped forward with donations since the interview aired on Saturday to help cover expenses. And a BIG Mahalo to everyone who answered the call for support, from this now moment forward.
 
Also, the extraordinary support and sheer number of positive comments on you Tube and Project Avalon has been virtually overwhelming. I actually expected to get hit with a freight train of negative comments from rabid fans and followers that have lost all objectivity in their search for truth. So here’s a HUMONGOUS THANK-YOU embedded with BIG HUGS to everyone for ALL your kind words and generosity! 
 
 
Blessings to All, {~A~}
Donations can be made thru paypal at the button on the upper right of the page, or you can support my work at Patreon. Mahalo nui!

EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW!
New Age Deep State Part 5: Whistleblower Annette O’Toole
In this breakthrough Part 5 episode of New Age Deep State, Dark Journalist welcomes Whistleblower Annette O’Toole
from the Ascending Starseed website who worked closely as a former insider with the 3 Year Disclosure Marketing Cult of self-proclaimed ‘Time Traveling Astronaut’ Corey Goode and his Business Partner Roger Ramsaur. The Marketing Cult includes questionable aspects in their program such as a therapy network to help followers cope with disclosure, ‘Corey’s Kids’ space gear promotions and a Comic Book based on Goode’s adventures in Secret Space with Blue Avian aliens.

Full Disclosure Corporation Harvesting Operation
O’Toole, who has successfully run the Ascending Starseed website for many years, recounts her experience working with Corey and Company to set up a Solstice Conference for the Summer and how she spent months formulating the event as the corporation encouraged her to build it up. She soon became wary of dealing with Goode when the 3 Year Disclosure Marketing Cult started to control the terms of her association and she saw her colleagues used as proxies, treated poorly, and then thrown aside.

She decided the group was not so much interested in ‘love and light’ and a Space Being philosophy of oneness as it was in optimizing their bottom line at the expense of their members. Eventually, through a series of slick corporate business moves, O’Toole found herself cut completely out of the loop of her own conference.

Five Major Figures Come Forward
O’Toole’s powerful account fits with a wider pattern of using assets and ideas without permission and general disregard for intellectual property that the marketing group seems to embrace. Five major figures in Alternative Research have come forward with accounts of these kind of incidents, including popular Web Bots developer Clif High, Dr. Joseph Farrell, Linda Moulton Howe, The Object Report’s Agent K and UFO Filmmaker Jim Nichols.

O’Toole’s message is not one of bitterness, but of awareness in dealing with what she views as ‘unethical and shady’ business practices of he 3 Year Disclosure Marketing Cult. Her personal experience with Corey and Company has set her on a path of helping others to question the claims of any group that purports to be in touch with ‘Higher Beings.’

Note: Due to the important nature of this video and it’s many revelations, you may at your discretion download it and upload it to your channel with proper citation and share it with your viewers to make sure it is not censored.

The fantastic track at the end of the episode was performed by The Anthropophobia Project.

EDITORS POST INTERVIEW STATEMENT

Aloha, Hi everyone,

Coming forward with my story has been a very difficult decision, considering all the contempt targeted at those speaking up by followers and fans, it’s took great courage. That said, there are a few things I’d like to add to my statement which we didn’t have time to cover in the interview, and actions taken on behalf of Corey and Roger after I spoke with Dark Journalist have shifted my perceptions as well.

Regardless of what Roger Ramsaur (aka Roger Richards & Emma Gold) beLIEves about tattoos, there’s a very dark agenda behind tattooing. Basically, 4th dimensional groups have been using tattooing as a means of ‘branding’ people for thousands of years. Most of the symbolism used in tattoo’s are energetically owned by these groups, and the fact that blood is involved makes tattooing a ritual based endeavor that literally brands most people to 4D groups. And, they’re typically not benevolent groups, especially anything representing Lucifer, the great Deceiver.

In conclusion, based on my personal clair-sentient observations and from what I’ve learned from several very powerful seer-healers who have been observing this situation from a multi-dimensional perspective; aside from embellishments on his personal life and in the story, Corey’s story about the BA’s and Inner Earth groups is ‘basically’ true. At least that’s how it began.

That said, there are extremely dark entity’s aided by a powerful AI energy that have infiltrated their organization over the last year. I honestly don’t believe anyone in the inner-circle is aware that they’ve been infected, or possessed or influenced by these forces. Any Satanic agenda is most likely covert, hidden and completely sub-conscious in nature.

I expect that Corey, Roger and fans will put their own spin on ‘my truth’. Am I a CIA plant? Well that’s a laughable label since Corey chose me as a ticket winner to his conference last year. I’m simply a blogger with a solid reputation in the truther community – my work stands for itself.

I’m also a Shaman dedicated to walking a Sacred Path in every step I take.

Bottom line, my skills and expertise were taken advantage of by Roger, then Corey threw me under the Roger bus with everyone else when he disregarded my letter on May 24th. If it was intercepted by Roger or someone else handling Corey’s correspondences, then he never read my complaint. Idk…

Instead of contacting me to find out what happened and what could be done to resolve the situation I was removed from the Full Disclosure Now 11-11 admin team, removed from Slack think tank and blocked by Roger.  I spent 25yrs as a professional in the entertainment industry and deserve more respect than that.

My initial impression was that Corey is under attack due to a lack of ethics, knowledge and professionalism on behalf of his manager – an age old problem in the entertainment industry that personally I’ve witnessed more times than I can count. I’ve also received feedback from several people skilled at reading energy and the Akashic records, that there IS truth to Corey’s contact with higher beings and is service with the SSP. That said, after receiving a couple of intimidating messages from him this week and seeing the attacks launched at people sharing their story, I have the impression Corey’s moral code is seriously flawed and that any previous contact with higher races ceased when his vibrational frequency lowered as his ego rose, as he got pulled into the opportunity to reach for fame and fortune.

So personally, I’m not surprised with the exposes coming forward. It feels like the judiciary karmic boomerang is returning to its senders.

Corey – if you’re reading this – I forgive and actually feel sorry for you, much of what you’re experiencing now has been brought on by bad business decisions that lack any kind of solid spiritual foundation – which was discussed in my letter to you on May 24, 2017. Exposes like my interview with Dark Journalist are real complaints against your organization which you have failed to personally address, violations that your management team perpetrated.

There are people who have been treated horribly by Roger, hence the knee-jerk reactions, denial and blame shifting on your behalf is only making matters worse. You really need to go within for a period of honest self-reflection and understand that everything appearing in your field of perception is also your creation, a reality which is projected from within.

Roger, I also forgive you and truly hope you seek deep clearing, healing and self forgiveness. You have been engulfed by darkness over the last few months, darkness which you have allowed-in thru tacit consent, branding and blood ritual. If you have a daily DMT habit “as rumored” – then you have unwittingly opened the door for possession. Please seek healing.

Now that the interview with Dark Journalist is being released, I don’t want get drawn into the drama and will be taking a hiatus for spiritual healing following six very stressful months after Corey backed out of his agreement to appear at my conference and the swindling act which followed. In addition, there have been a series of attacks I’ve been dealing with and need time to heal and regroup, to forge a new direction moving forward.

A link to the letter I sent to Corey is posted below, it’s been edited and condensed to remove names of the innocent and discussions on other topics. I wrote the letter to tell my story in the event that it was ignored.

I’m also including a chat text summary with Roger to highlight promises he made which went unfulfilled and to show the carrot and stick tactics he uses to keep people “producing” without being paid their energetic, or monetary value.

Instead of taking this case into a man-made court of law, “at this time” I’ve chosen to open a sacred neutral, spiritual court of equity with Great Spirit and Gaia to find remedy and resolution to all value that’s been stolen, that all masks will fall and all hidden truths will be revealed in this matter. And so it is.

One last note, I absolutely hate asking for donations. In 2013 my grandmother passed away leaving me with a very small inheritance I’ve been living on while healing from two Hepatitis C relapses in 2011 and 2013. By re-investing the money into paying for my survival expenses, my grandmothers legacy has also allowed me the freedom to live a service to others lifestyle by allowing time for researching information I’ve shared on my blog and allowing time for volunteer work I do with my local community.

The motivating reason to organize conferences was the opportunity to professionally get back on my feet and have money in the bank to continue working for the Collective Good, since my Grandmothers legacy was finally reaching its end.

Basically in a nut-shell, Roger swindled my income, as well as funding for more conferences aimed at raising the collective conscious. Now, I’m back on food stamps and because I’ve healed, I’ve been denied financial assistance – a decision which I’m fighting. Currently, I’m seeking income opportunities and have more events in the works for next year, but it will take a few months before event-income manifests. Additionally, there are virtually no jobs available and I really need help surviving until I regroup and get back on my feet.

You can support my work on Patreon or thru the donation button on my blog, which also has a re-occurring payment option – your support at this time will be greatly appreciated.

I also want to apologize for the drop in the number of published posts over the last several months. This has been an extremely difficult passage to navigate; in addition dealing with vampiric people possessed by Darkness has seriously drained my energy reserves. Also, the subsequent loss of conference income I spent six-months planning for, has shifted my focus to survival and jumping thru hoops for the state for financial assistance has been a time and energy harvesting endeavor as well. I’ve been literally been hanging on by a thread since January.

For the time being I’ll be shifting my focus to finding a part-time job to help keep a roof over my head and cover living expenses, which is next to impossible while investing time in research for the blog and managing my work on Facebook – both are very time consuming and they harvest focus which needs to be directed toward my survival, at this time.

Thanks again to everyone who has ever supported my work, and to all the amazing people who left so many incredibly supportive comments under my interview on YouTube and Project Avalon. Knowing that Corey and Roger would put their own spin on my story in an effort to suppress the truth about their lack of professionalism and ethics, it wasn’t an easy decision coming forward. Yet it’s been a big relief that the support has been overwhelmingly positive, and with any luck my feedback is inspiring critical thinking and moving followers away from ‘group think’.

In conclusion, when a research community turns into a worship community driven by the Cult of Personality which says ‘get out if you disagree’ we have a serious problem which needs to be addressed with objective thinking. When people preaching a Service to Others lifestyle are walking a Service to Self path in their own lives, we  have a serious problem to contend with. It’s time we get off our knees and lead ourselves as true leaders,  and stop looking to others for answers. Because everything we need to know for our personal journey is Sourced from within.

In hindsight, I want to thank Corey and Roger for a powerful mirroring experience, in the last month I have found great healing for times in the past where my self-worth and energetic value has been violated.  I’ve forgiven trespassers and asked forgiveness for my trespasses upon others as well. My wish for both of you is that upon deep self reflection at your own projections,  and that you learn from this experience and find healing too.

The monster in the mirror looking back at you is YOU; what you believe are attacks, are coming from your own Shadow and are a self-creation.

I also want to extend gratitude to everyone who’s been there for me over the last few months thru this difficult journey, you know who you are.

I also wish to express a BIG heartfelt MAHALO to Dark Journalistl for his support and for giving whistleblowers a platform to speak our truth. Thank you for your outstanding work with this expose` series and to the other whistleblowers who come forward, for standing in the power of their truth.
Mahalo nui…Much love to all,

Annette O’Toole

June Snow Removal Western USA & August Skiing 200+ Inch Base


How quickly the main stream media would like you to forget the record snow pack across both the Sierra Nevada and Rocky Mountains for winter 2016/2017 as the IPCC said snow pack would go to zero due to global warming. Roads at passes in California and Colorado were bogged with snow up to June 20th, but the media focuses on a desert area with regular temperatures over 118F. They sure wont mention August skiing or cosmic rays or shifting inter-tropical convergence zones. You are on your own in terms of correct information searching.

David Paulides releases ‘Missing 411’ documentary


 Traciy Reyes

© Courtesy of David Paulides
David Paulides—founder of the CanAm Missing Project and author of Missing 411 Hunters: Unexplained Disappearances—is committed to finding missing persons.

Missing 411, a gripping documentary based on the David Paulides book series, is now available on VOD. Missing 411 follows the Tribal Bigfoot author as he investigates several mysterious disappearances that have occurred in national forests and parks all across North America over the past several decades. These unexplained disappearances have baffled detectives, search and rescue experts, and family members. Missing 411 is directed by Michael DeGrazier and Benjamin Paulides.

Missing 411 book series readers will get an even clearer picture as these stories are told through interviews and re-creations. David Paulides began his research eight years ago after a park ranger told him several people had disappeared in the parks and forests without a trace. The vanishings are particularly interesting since they occurred while other people were around. Missing 411 also reveals the disappearances are centered in 59 geographical clusters in North America.

Missing 411 explains that search and rescue teams conducted several searches in the areas where the victims disappeared, but nothing turned up until years later. Below, David Paulides points out specific factors that replicate themselves in the different clusters.

  • Tracking canines not finding a scent or failing to find a scent trail
  • No tracks
  • Weather often changes immediately after a disappearance

All the stories presented in Missing 411 are riveting and sad. The documentary recreates the case of Bobby Bizup, a young boy who disappeared in 1958 in a region of Rocky Mountain National Park. In the scene, viewers see the boy following his leader back to camp for dinner and then vanishes after the leader looks back.

The Bobby Bizup story isn’t the only strange case that is profiled in the documentary. Missing 411 also tells the story of Deorr Kunz Jr., Samuel Boehlke, and Jaryd Atadero.

Most likely viewers will come away with more questions than answers. Some critics believe the disappearances are not strange at all. However, David Paulides told the Inquisitr that anyone who has read the book series agrees the disappearances are strange.

“We have never met anyone who has read the 6 books that hasn’t said there is something unusual happening. How could a 2 year old boy travel 9-12 miles over 2 mountain ranges in 12 hours? We have multiple, multiple examples of distance and elevation gained by infants and toddlers that is seemingly impossible on their own.”

Missing 411 is well-crafted with beautiful but eerie scenes throughout the documentary. David Paulides believes that if nothing else, people will reflect on the cases upon visiting a national park or forest again.

Missing 411 is produced by NABS. Michael Lassle, JRE, Benjamin Paulides, and David Paulides are the executive producers. According to the Missing 411Facebook page, the documentary is available for purchase on Vimeo, Amazon, and CanAm Missing Project. The running time is 98 minutes.

Astrology for the Soul June 21, 2017 Kaypacha Lescher


When I’m in my center, my innermost core,
Completely relaxed, needing no more,
I connect with the Mother who gave birth to it all,
As in the silence I hear her call.

This can be an emotional week! Just when the boat gets balanced here comes another wave! Of course, after the report, I think of all the things I didn’t say (I’ll go into more in the newsletter). I got into what things may look like a little bit, but some other manifestations may be the blues. You may remember how many “homes” you left behind, how many times you were left behind, the past may come up to haunt you a bit.

This, of course, is part of your emotions showing you your REAL self that isn’t always convenient, obedient, or controlled. Take it as a month of feeling into who you really are instead of who others want you to be, or who you pretend to be, or even who you want to be! The beautiful part about Cancer is that she shows us where we ARE which it the best place to start without getting ahead of ourselves and fooling ourselves. Listening to the silence reveals the hidden truth. Injoy!

The Dissolution of the Process of the Veils (Solstice Stargate 2017) ~ Magenta Pixie


Ed. Note: There’s a very important message here for Starseeds about the true meaning of the “deep state” and the confusion arising around the intentions of perceived ‘leaders’. It’s time we get off our knees Starseeds, we are true leaders.

Starseeds are not followers.

A true Starseed stands alone in their individual Leadership power as a Living Example of Source Light, because they’ve broken away from ‘group’ dynamics which fall prey to ‘deep state infiltration’ and Savior programming.

It’s time we get off our knees to stand in our individual power as leaders in our own community’s and soul family groups, and stop seeking guidance from false spiritual prophets and those with dirty spiritual hygiene who haven’t done their own inner-work. Yet they profess to be spiritual guru’s?

GURU = Gee You Are You

At this time of Soul-stice all masks are falling so that all hidden truths may be revealed by those in the public eye.

We can never know who someone is until we’ve spent close personal contact with them for 18mo’s or longer, that is a cold hard fact. People we idolize get up in the morning and put their pants on just as the rest of do, they are far from perfect and can usually barely lead themselves. Most need very deep healing and are not worthy of idolatry and worship.

The key to ascension is learning to go within to access your own personal truth which aligns with your soul, and your unique reality bubble. Not what and who everyone else is ‘following’, for we are all very unique multi-dimensional BEings with our own soul matrix and soul history.

Starseeds are First Contact – WE EMBODY Full Disclosure, it is not something down the road we wait for to happen – that my friends, is a soul harvesting endeavor and a distraction away from our own personal Divinity path.

Looking outward to others for truth, ALWAYS leads you in circles chasing your tail – this is something I’ve learned the hard way.

The earthly realm is not what it appears to be from outward appearances, the only way to discover the truth about this reality is by going within to access and be your own personal, inner guide. Namaste, so much love ❤

Satire – Study: AC/DC’s ‘Highway To Hell’ more theologically accurate than 96% of modern worship songs


Babylon Bee

A recent survey performed by CCLI confirmed that AC/DC’s hard rock classic “Highway to Hell” is more theologically accurate than 96% of the songs that most worship bands play on any given Sunday.

The study examined over 800 songs and compared their theology to the Scriptures, and found that the Australian rock group’s 1979 classic was “significantly more accurate” than over 96% of them.

“While modern worship songs tend to contain little theology, an anemic view of sin, and a poor understanding of the work of the Holy Spirit, ‘Highway to Hell’ has a very biblical view of the doctrine of hell,” a CCLI rep said. “Lead singer Bon Scott had a clear understanding of man’s natural inclination toward sin and the inevitable judgment of God that follows.”

“Just take a look at some of those lyrics in that hard-hitting first verse,” the head CCLI researcher told reporters. “‘Don’t need reason, don’t need rhyme, Ain’t nothing I would rather do / Going down, party time, My friends are gonna be there too.'”

“Bon Scott’s understanding of mankind’s depravity clearly rivaled anything Paul wrote in the third chapter of Romans,” he added. “It’s better than that song that keeps inviting the Holy Spirit in like He’s some kind of coy puppy dog.”

Further findings confirmed that other metal classics like Iron Maiden’s “The Number of the Beast,” Metallica’s “Master of Puppets,” and Megadeth’s “Symphony of Destruction” were also more accurate than most songs played on Air1 or K-LOVE.

Hawaii Becomes the First State to Pass a Bill in Support of Universal Basic Income


03778_mapheader

In Brief

This month has shown that Hawaii may be the U.S.’s most forward-thinking state. Earlier in June, it became the first state to formally accept the provisions of the Paris Climate Accord, and now, the state congress has passed a bill that puts Hawaii on the path to universal basic income.

Eyes on the Future

Innovation and forward-thinking may be Hawaii’s two biggest exports in 2017. Earlier this month, the state earned the distinction of being the first in the U.S. to formally accept the provisions of the Paris Climate Agreement after President Donald Trump decided to withdraw the nation from it, and now, Hawaii is taking the lead in embracing yet another innovative idea: universal basic income (UBI).

Today, Hawaii state representative Chris Lee wrote a Reddit post about House Concurrent Resolution 89, a bill he says he introduced in order to “start a conversation about our future.” According to Lee, “After much work and with the help of a few key colleagues, it passed both houses of the State Legislature unanimously.”

Lee also mentioned the development via Twitter:

The bill has two major provisions. First, it declares that all families in Hawaii are entitled to basic financial security. “As far as I’m told, it’s the first time any state has made such a pronouncement,” wrote Lee. The second provision establishes a number of government offices “to analyze our state’s economy and find ways to ensure all families have basic financial security, including an evaluation of different forms of a full or partial universal basic income.”

The congressman thanked “redditors” in his post, as he said the site became his first resource in considering UBI, and added a Reddit-standard TL;DR at the end: “The State of Hawaii is going to begin evaluating universal basic income.”

A Step Forward

Under a UBI program, every citizen is granted a fixed income that’s not dependent on their status in life. Despite the current focus on the concept, it actually isn’t particularly new. In fact, former U.S. President Richard Nixon actually floated the idea back in 1969.

Universal Basic Income: The Answer to Automation?
Click to View Full Infographic

However, the benefits of such a program have become more appealing in light of recent technological advances, specifically, the adoption of automated systems that could result in widespread unemployment.

Proponents of UBI have highlighted how it would be an improvement on existing social welfare programs while mitigating the effects of the joblessness expected to follow automation. Critics think that UBI would encourage a more lax attitude about work and argue that funding such a system would be difficult, if not impossible.

Existing pilot programs, however, seem to indicate otherwise.

Hawaii may be the first U.S. state to pass any sort of UBI-positive legislation, but several countries around the globe are already testing the system. Finland began its two-year UBI pilot in 2016, and Germany has one as well. Canada plans to start trials in Prince Edward Island (PEI) and Ontario, while India is currently debating the merits of UBI. Several private UBI endeavors are also in the works, including one that uses blockchain and cryptocurrency.

Of course, the implementation of any major UBI program requires a great deal of political will. As Lee wrote, “Planning for the future isn’t politically sexy and won’t win anyone an election […]. But if we do it properly, we will all be much better off for it in the long run.”

June 18, 2017: The most recent seismogram activity at Tristan da Cunha, the worlds most remote inhabited island, is showing signatures of magma intrusion. This island is comprised of basically one volcano thousands of miles from any mainland. It erupted and was evacuated a little over 50 years ago.

Cherry Blossom: How the CIA can hack into your internet router

Wi-Fi routers typically sit in dusty corners of homes and offices, quietly transmitting internet accessibility to computers, tablets and phones in its immediate vicinity. However, these unpretentious devices are a goldmine for hackers – and were specifically targeted by the US Central Intelligence Agency, the latest Wikileaks release has revealed.

The release is the latest instalment of Wikileaks’ “Vault7” series, which the group has been drip-feeding to the public since March. Previous trickles have revealed CIA attempts to hack office computers, televisions and phones, among many other shock exposures.

This time, the documents contain detailed information on the CIA’s router hacking “toolkit” — and how the Agency sought to leverage common vulnerabilities in routers sold by companies such as D-Link and Linksys. The techniques range from hacking network passwords to rewriting device firmware to remotely monitor traffic flowing across a target’s network.

While few may have stopped to consider a router’s attractiveness to a hacker, in truth the devices are an obviously attractive entry point — routers typically aren’t equipped with interfaces beyond on/off and reset buttons, and have no means of alerting users they have been compromised.

A router could be hacked for years, with a user’s every online action tracked and recorded, without anyone being any the wiser.

The CIA’s router-hacking approach begins with a tool — “Claymore” — which scans a network to identify devices and then launches two exploiters — “Tomato” and “Surfside” — the former is noted to target vulnerabilities in at least two routers sold by D-Link and Linksys, and steals those devices’ administrative passwords. Moreover, the documents state at least two other routers sold by Linksys could be targeted with “Tomato” after a mere few weeks of development.

“Surfside” is left largely unexplained, though the documents hint it may abuse a protocol called Universal Plug and Play. Oft dubbed UPNP, and embedded in around 7,000 different devices — including routers, printers, media players and smart TVs — tech security experts have long-warned it poses a potential risk.

As the documents date back to early 2016, it’s unclear whether D-Link or Linksys have identified and/or rectified these vulnerabilities — however, routers are difficult to manually update, and given their ubiquity, providers are reluctant to dispatch professional staff to do so, instead obliging consumers to do so themselves. Any vulnerability in a router can be left to smolder for years before correction, if at all — and the aforementioned lack of a “warning” system alerting users to threats, ala antivirus software, means users may never discover if their device is vulnerable.

Another means of access mentioned in the papers is the failure of users to change default admin passwords — often, individuals are simply unaware there is an admin password, and it can be amended. This likewise offers unbridled access to the contents of an individual’s router — after access, a hacker or CIA agent could then install custom firmware (the CIA’s is called Flytrap) on the router monitor a target’s browsing, strip SSL encryption from webpages visited, and even inject other exploits into their traffic, designed to offer access directly to the target’s PC or phone. Yet another piece of software, CherryTree, serves as a command-and-control system, allowing operators to monitor and update infected network devices from a browser-based interface called CherryWeb.

Nonetheless, while acknowledging the exposures are “alarming,” Matthew Hickey, Founder of Hacker House, isn’t shocked the CIA would target routers.

“The information security community has been warning about this risk since 2005, if not before. Still, while technically adept users likely won’t be impacted by the technique, it does potentially mean the CIA can access millions of web histories — and there’s the prospect of it easily being misused and abused in surveillance operations. The only Godsend is the CIA wouldn’t be able to do this remotely or in bulk — they need to be in the nearby vicinity of a router network to access it, from a car or van or similar,” Mr. Hickey told Sputnik.

Ultimately, given the evident insecurities ingrained in average Wi-Fi routers, it’s perhaps unsurprising the world’s most well-financed spying group has exploited them — and maybe still does. Wikileaks’ latest revelations serve as a palpable reminder to net users to update their routers regularly, and change their default admin passwords. Otherwise, potentially no private, internet-equipped home is safe from US surveillance.
