ejoness, i posted this, not because of the serious info it contains (lol, it doesn't), but because it's the rantings of an ignorant person who has no idea whatsoever what he's talking about.

the vast majority of the "evidence" in those pictures is nonsense. as for photobucket, huh? he's not accusing THEM of surveillance, he's using them to post the pictures of his screenshots which he mistakenly thinks prove something beyond "i am connected to the internet."

the accusation against IANA is priceless, along with the guy who supports it by talking about disinformation. if you're going to talk about foil hat conspiracies with government spying, u ought to at least understand the difference between a LAN and a WAN address.

wow is right.

A vague, rudimentary understanding of a complicated, technical topic, combined with the lack of logic and rationality that most conspiracy nuts posses.

Forget criminals, THIS kind of person is a valid argument for gun control :)

lol fantastic find. I'm really curious to know how much time this dude has on his hands to sit there and stare at his incoming/outgoing connections and find the great pattern of surveillance. Dude needs a job I think haha

but how can you call disinfo a not credible source when they have groundbreaking front page stories like... "Lee Camp: NASA Releases Video Saying We’re F**ked By The Year 2100" and "Hiroshima and Nagasaki the Great Historical Lie?" :tinfoilhat:

you would be surprised some spies can send the info to their photobucket account.

did u read the entire thread, ejonesss? as at least one person pointed out, if you're online, you can be spied on - period. it doesn't matter what u do, or what OS u run.

ALL that guy did was post screenshots on photobucket. if you think photobucket is spying on you, well, you really really really need to go offline and stay offline, seriously.

Here is an extensive list of port ranges and what they are used for ejoness.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_TC ... rt_numbers

Port 80 and port 8080 are mainly used for the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) to establish a connection to a server.
Port 8080 Is used a lot for proxy servers and other applications and also as a back up to port 80 if I remember correctly.
Edit: Port 443 is used for secure connections i.e. (HTTPS)
I remember a few file sharing programs that used to use port 8080 too.

All that guy did was prove that his internet was working.

If you were to block either of those as outgoing ports you would more than likely block your access to browse the internet lol

it was nice to see, tho, that some of the people on that :tinfoilhat: site actually understood what was going on. i especially enjoyed the multiple :doh: guy, and the one who said a little part of him died every time he read a thread like that. nice to see that some paranoid people still actually take the time to think things thru.

there's nothing wrong with suspicion - lord knows i have plenty myself ;) but is it asking too much for people to at least have a tiny bit of understanding of the topic they're suspicious about?

In his defense, his claim wasn't really just the connections. It was that all the incoming connections were SO well organized.
So organized that it couldnt possibly be malware or hacker probing, it HAD to be the government.

Move to the hills man!! This shit is real, man! I have proof that a COMPUTER of all things was behaving in an ORGANIZED and PREDICTABLE manner!! This goes DEEP man! Illuminutti! Triads! Stonecutters!
If they can make computers follow a pattern and repeat tasks, what else are they capable of?!?! Next thing you know they will contorting space-time to harness LIGHT!
Imagine! Images of real life events, directed through some sort of lens and CAPTURED forever on some sort of paper!
MADNESS!! This is the stuff THEY dont want you to know about, Wake UP mer'ca!

I liked what true-life did on top of page 3 to encourage him. lol > :lookup: Then someone flamed him for it... :pissedoff:

That's an interesting question. We've seen lots of fanatics that just think the govt. are absolutely against them for one reason or another. For some people sadly I think it is too much to ask for. :tinfoilhat:

Yes, That is right. It is used for secure (HTTPS) connections also. I edited my above post to reflect that. Although the guy that was thinking the government was spying on him didn't mention that port# in his post so I didn't bother to cover them all when responding to you after you asked if there was a way to block the ones he did list ...
Take care.

The truth is out there... lol. I think he was trying to satirically categorize the high points of what the op did. :toast:

i told myself to not bother to answer this, as i have attempted to repeatedly in the past, to no effect. but i'm going to try again anyway.

1. your assertion is completely false and without basis. the logs for this website contain no such information. there are multiple ways for u to confirm this yourself, but it seems like u would rather fantasize about everyone spying on u instead of actually understanding what is happening around u.

2. in this case, the only log that would show what pages u accessed at another site are the logs at THAT site, not here. we have no access to that information.

3. even if we DID have access to it, which we don't, it would not answer my question. i didn't ask if u clicked on a link, i asked if u actually READ the entire thread. no log in the world can answer that question. i asked because the question u asked was specifically addressed in that thread. i was curious to learn whether u didn't see that stuff, or u didn't believe it. if you're on the internet, you're at risk, regardless of your OS.

if you're going to be paranoid about this stuff, u owe it to yourself to have a basic understanding of it, something it appears to me that both u and the OP of that thread lack.

ok i think i managed to block the government from accessing my systems.

i simply blocked every ip range in the pictures on all ports and all protocols and i have no more attempts.

that's nice, but odds are, none of what was in his screenshots has anything to do with the government. for an obvious example - do u really believe the government leases computers from a server host in the netherlands to spy on people?

i cannot emphasize this point enough. there is ZERO evidence in that thread that the government had anything to do with any of the stuff he posted. does the government spy on people? absolutely. but so do PLENTY of other people, too.

I'm sure he got pinged quite a lot after posting his IP publicly. And with the new automagic mouse pointer thingamajigy nsa super computer spy app freshly installed that elite haxors embed their own code in they will know every thought and secret radiated through his mind down his arm into the mouse through the pointer into the screen. Better wrap your mouse in tinfoil too ejonesss :lol:

more than anything, i am asking you to stop with your false assumptions about what this website logs, and is capable of logging, and to actually understand the things u seem to fear.



but you said this:

my question about macs and linux is a serious one


i replied:

did u read the entire thread, ejonesss? as at least one person pointed out, if you're online, you can be spied on - period. it doesn't matter what u do, or what OS u run.

rather than actually answer the question, you made this statement...

yes i did you should know that by the logs.

... which i pointed out was wrong for several reasons, and then explained the question in what i thought was easy to understand language.

i asked because the question u asked was specifically addressed in that thread. i was curious to learn whether u didn't see that stuff, or u didn't believe it. if you're on the internet, you're at risk, regardless of your OS.


i'm really at a loss to understand what is confusing here. i'm sorry, but i don't think i'm capable of making it any clearer. not that it really matters, one way or the other.
