Transcripts - Pretzel head

  • 1. Why? Because I said so – that’s why.
  • 2. On 6/14/14, @th3j35t3r sent a tweet to an employer about one of their employees claiming that the employee played host to jihadi websites. Loyal followers applaud him. Nobody questions him. https://twitter.com/th3j35t3r/status/477937190652350464
  • 3. To support his claim, @th3j35t3r provides a link showing the name of the company that hosts al-qimmah.net; Tehnologii Budushego*. http://bit.ly/1mXi1r8 *This is a HOSTING COMPANY. To see scope covered by Tehnologii Budusheg, search for AS41665 (ISP number) at http://bgp.he.net/.
  • 4. He also provides a screenshot of a RIPE.net search on the host company name with the company contact, Andrey Slusar, highlighted. http://bit.ly/1lzwIEe https://apps.db.ripe.net/search/ Search term = Tehnologii Budu
  • 5. @th3j35t3r then links the RIPE.net contact name to a LinkedIn account . That is how Andrey Slusar became the target. That is how Andrey Slusar was tarred and feathered without a trial. NOBODY QUESTIONED NOBODY OBJECTED NOBODY ASKED FOR PROOF http://linkd.in/1lzwPzE
  • 6. Now let’s see what happens when we try @th3j35t3r’s logic and methodology on some other unsavory sites. (Go to http://www.whoishostingthis.com if you want to play along at home.)
  • 7. MEMRI claims that kavkazenter.com is affiliated with the Russian jihad organization Caucasus Emirate:
  • 8. Alplatformmedia.com is a pro-ISIS website:
  • 9. This CloudFlare entity is looking mighty suspicious. Who should we blame? Hmmm……..
  • 10. Well, here’s the RIPE.net search for CloudFlare. Let’s blame Nitin Rao. https://apps.db.ripe.net/search/ Search term = CloudFlare
  • 11. And here you have it. One of the evil bastards responsible for hosting jihadi websites. At least that’s what you might think if you choose to believe @th3j35t3r’s approach is correct. Actually, this guy is just a contact name at a large company that does web site hosting. He doesn’t have any control over the client base any more than Andrey Slusar did . And, if @th3j35t3r is as savvy as he purports to be, he’d know this is a fact. Then again, facts seem to elude @th3j35t3r on a regular basis. https://www.linkedin.com/in/nitinrao
  • 12. When it’s your turn, will anybody speak up for you?
