Update to Articles Critical of Local Government Trigger Cyber-Attacks on Journalist

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

A reader questioned my claim that I had received a virus from a Facebook invitation and other claims in a recent article. I stated in the article that I would be gathering the information and posting it in an update to the article. Due to the possibility that others may question my claim I decided to post the update sooner rather than later.

The first example is a copy of the Facebook invitation that contained the virus (keylogger) from a person intimately involved with the Lexington police department. The first link is the one that contained a virus so DO NOT click on that link title:Subject: Our ma s ked tv cam g o t y o ur ar s e a s well! . I am not a computer expert and therefore I do not know if the link would continuously infect anyone who clicks on it.

As I have stated in my last article, I will be updating this even more as the websites and forensics experts provide me with the IP addresses and I move forward with attempting to prosecute those guilty of cyber-bullying. I can already tie some of this to members of the Lexington police department and I’m betting I’ll find even more connections.

If articles critical of local government can be met with this type of harassment without justice, journalism is not safe and government is out of control. I will include the numbers of people and organizations responsible for stopping this in the next article with the names of those involved. I am asking for your help in making a statement for free press and the citizens of the United States. Let’s use the internet, get involved and put a stop to this type of abuse by our local government and police departments.

Share.
