Electromagnetic Energy (EME) Reports hidden from Australians?

Transparency by the government of the colony called Australia is NOT a priority, especially when it comes to data that may be shown to be harmful to the general population, then it becomes 'hidden' under the label of it's not in the interest of the public to obtain this information.

In this case we are on the topic of electromagnetic energy emitted by telecommunications towers.

'Australia' has left its federation and departments of the state far behind in favour of a corporatocracy (that's just an opinion, others may say it's a totalitarian or fascist state) hidden in a tangled web of deceit, where the so called government or administrative body is known affectionately as a corporation aggregate.

Data now is BIG BUSINESS and everyone wants a slice of your data that you generate within this 'digital economy', where if you want something from 'them' they do NOT make it easy for you.

An organisation called the Community Broadcasting Community of Australia (CBAA), currently on its website recommends that you obtain information pertaining to electromagnetic energy reports from another entity called the Radio Frequency National Site Archive (RFNSA), as seen in the screen capture above.

The RFNSA has produced its website in such a manner that 'professors' (in I.T. of course) would find it difficult to extract information from, let alone the 'Average Joe' Aussie.

So along comes a very kind man, who devotes his (precious) time and cash to a good cause for the community in proving the data from RFNSA in a palatable format with pretty pictures that the Average Joe Aussie can digest.

But as we know in this colony, data is not for everyone, so the RFNSA has made it difficult for 'very kind man' to compile the data and present it to the community.

As a result his project has grinded to a halt, as seen in his response on a popular Australian forum:

A truly sad sign of the times for transparency.

The federal government locking down its colony.

Samsung patches a critical exploit its smartphones had since 2014

In this week's Security update, Samsung fixed a security flaw relating to how the company's Android skin handles the custom image format Qmage (.qmg files). Support for the format with the bug present has been available on all of the South Korean giant's smartphones since 2014.

The exploit was discovered (via ZDNet) by security researcher Mateusz Jurczyk at Google's Project Zero team of security analysts, who are tasked with finding zero-day vulnerabilities on a wide range of products.

As explained by Mateusz, the issue stems from an Android library named Skia that handles the loading and displaying of various image formats, including the aforementioned Qmage. How it handles Qmage can be exploited by sending MMS (Multimedia Messaging Service) messages to a Samsung device, which are received by Samsung's Messages app.

The MMS messages would first try to discover the position of the phone's Skia library, then deliver a Qmage file which can execute code by the attacker, on the device in question, without any user interaction required.

Mateusz notes that the process takes around 100 minutes, depending on factors such as how fast the user's GSM signal is, the amount of messages already on the device, and if Wi-Fi is enabled or not.

As for what the hacker gains after a successful attack, in the case of how Mateusz did it, it's full access to Samsung Messages, which means private user information such as call logs, contact list, microphone, storage access, messages and more.

Samsung patched the bug in its May 2020 security update, after Mateusz discovered it and reported it to the South Korean company in February.

Smartphones from other companies don't appear to be impacted by the exploit, as Samsung is the only company to support the custom Qmage format, which itself was developed in Samsung's home country of South Korea.

Australians ripped off on smartphone technology

Australians as in the tax paying population of the colony, are being ripped off with regards to the technology available to them compared to other 'markets' around the world.

There are many factors to take into consideration as to why manufacturers do not offer their full spectrum of products to the colonial 'consumers', which are not discussed in this post.

Smartphone manufacturers have been for quite some time appealing to the 'warm and fuzzy' nostalgic feeling of the phones of yesteryear, packaging them up with modern tech and charging the price of a kidney in some countries.

As an example Apple have raided their spare parts bin (literally) and came up with a 'new' phone called the iPhone SE (2020), with literally the same dimensions as its 3year old iPhone 8.

Just because they made it doesn't mean you should buy it, which holds true with the 'new' iPhone SE (2020), but that's another topic in itself.

Motorola jumped on the nostalgia bandwagon, with the release of the Razr, where Australia's popular retail store JB Hi-Fi sells it for $2,699 as seen on their website current at the time of this post:

Over the colonial seas in other 'markets' Motorola offers the same phone for a two for one price deal, for an outlay of $1500.

Taking into consideration that the above price is in currency from the (alleged) 'land of the free', where one (colonial) Australian dollar purchases 0.64 of a freeman's(?) dollar then the equivalent  2,335 and a bit Kangaroo dollars buys you two Moto Razrs over the seas.

Without going into the 'economics', exchange rates, policies etc, Aussies are getting ripped off with regards to many products that are imported from overseas, where the government reaps in a significant amount in tax dollars.

Once a slave in the colony, always a slave.

Government laughing stock, their COVID-19 app useless

The people within the Australian Government have put a huge emphasis on the plebs to purchase* their COVID-19 app.

The government has even used bribe tactics, saying that “If you want to go to the pub, download the COVID-19 app”

Source: Supplied

Even though their own legislation states quite the opposite, Section 9 “Coercing the use of COVIDSafe” in illustration:

How can you trust the government with such monumental fails.

In the 'real world', e.g. the I.T industry the people responsible (in this case the ‘Australian Government’) for a failure like this would be sacked from their job, most likely never to work in the industry again, but as we know this colony is a very special place where politicians get rewarded for their incompetence. 

Apparently at the time of this post, there are over 4 million downloads of the app.

* purchase – even though you download an app for zero dollars you commit to an action in business/commerce/trade, where the 'cost' of this transaction is you handing over information to the app developer (e.g. gov) which is commercialised on.
