U.S. Government Spying on Civilians, claims WikiLeaks
TrapWire software program is specifically built to analyze images and crucial data to arrest terrorism in the state. Information captured on surveillance cameras fixed in private business, casinos and store areas are directly linked to central database for image recognition and data analysis.
As per the latest statement issued by an online British news site, Mail Online, "US Government is secretly spying on 'everyone' using civilian security cameras, say WikiLeaks."
WikiLeaks, the online whistleblowers and non-profit organization earlier attempted to expose highly confidential U.S. war related cables and hence in the blacklist of the Federal officials. The WikiLeaks official site is also facing unexpected shut down from a team of unidentified cyberpunks since the release of TrapWire related mails.
Exposing e-mails from ‘Anonymous’ hackers
The most recent corporate emails leaked by WikiLeaks have provoked apprehensions amongst bureaucrats and civilians alike. The confidential mails from Stratfor Global Intelligence on TrapWire system have reportedly been provided to WikiLeaks by its hacking partner ‘Anonymous’.
The ‘Anonymous’ hacktivist group has reckoned the TrapWire system as a ‘monster’ and hence called for its immediate termination. “This program also monitors all social media on the Internet,” mentioned the hacktivists in a recent statement.
The origins of the TrapWire Software
As per the tech sources, the origins of TrapWire lies in a U.S. based company named Abraxas Corporation, founded by the ex-CIA counter-terrorism agent Richard “Hollis” Helms, along with other ex-CIA colleagues in 2004.
Though much information about Abraxas Corporation operations has been kept under roofs, the company is believed to have given rise to TrapWire in order to work closer on secret counter-terrorism measures.
