The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

Police bust global cybercrime extortion ring

MADRID — Spanish police and Europol have busted a global cybercrime operation that infected millions of computers with a virus that falsely accused victims of viewing child pornography and demanded a fine payment, officials said Wednesday.

Police detained 11 people as part of the operation, including a 27-year-old Russian suspected of creating and distributing the virus, Europol director Rob Wainwright told a news conference in Madrid.

The virus locked computers in over 30 countries, mostly in Europe, and it demanded payment of a fine of 100 euros ($135) to return control to its user, he said.

The message generated by the virus used the logo of the national police force and the language of the country where the computer was based to accuse the victim of having viewed child pornography or pirated movies online, he added.

"This operation is the first major operation of its kind," Wainwright said.

"This is an example of the evolving nature of cybercrime online, of how cybercrime is becoming more sophisticated."

The authorities said the group raised millions of euros with its scam but could not yet cite a precise amount.

About three percent of those whose computers were infected by the virus paid the fine that was demanded.

Europol said in a statement that it was "the largest and most complex cybercrime network dedicated to spreading police ransomware."

Police detained 10 people -- six Russians, two Ukrainians and two Georgians -- last week on Spain's Costa del Sol as part of the investigation, said Spain's secretary of state for security, Francisco Martinez.

The suspected author of the virus was detained while he was on holiday in Dubai in December, he added. He is currently awaiting extradition to Spain.

Of the 10 suspects detained in Spain, six have been remanded in custody while the investigation continues and the remaining four were released on bail.

They are accused of fraud, money laundering, forging documents and membership of an organised crime group.

The investigation remains open and further arrests are likely, police said.

The authorities began their investigation, dubbed "Operation Ransom", in November 2011 after detecting the virus in six European countries.

The network created 48 different versions of the virus to ensure that it was not detected by anti-virus software, said Martinez.

So-called "ransomware" viruses, which try to make victims pay an on-the-spot fine, are becoming more prevalent but most strains only accuse people of pirating movies or music. Others scramble data that is only unscrambled when a fee is paid.
