A new virus has been catalogued, and it appears to be planting and distributing child pornography files. Hackers? No. The government is planting child porn on your computer, or so an alert published today indicates.

A new virus has been catalogued, and it appears to be planting and distributing child pornography files. Hackers? No. The government is planting child porn on your computer, or so an alert published today indicates.

Political Dissenters, Beware

Before It’s News has interviewed a person, who spoke on condition of anonymity, that has been a victim of the virus implantation. The person was engaged in journalistic exposure of political corruption, and suddenly police appeared on his doorstep with a search warrant specifying a search for evidence of possessing and distributing child pornography. The story is a bit convoluted here, but basically the gentleman did a little more investigation and found rogue .exe files on his computer that appeared as normal emule sharing directories but contained “hundreds to thousands” of child pornography files. The potential whistleblower claims the virus was deliberately planted on his computer in order to stop his activity.

The article surmises the Internet Crimes Against Children task force may be behind the virus planting, though why is unclear.

Are You A Victim?

According to a USWGO Virus Report:

“I believe it was surrounded by comine.exe along with another exe file that had random characters so I don’t remember that file name since it had a certain kind of random characters and I believe it may have been in the TEMP folder.

It came with three rogue P2P file sharing applications that were not stored in the usual file directories for programs or even portable programs. Those files are called ares.exe, emule.exe, and shareaza.exe. They share possibly illegal files and files with Trojans embedded without the computer owners permission despite invalid claims by law enforcement that no one can force a user to download and share files on P2P networks. When the user discovers them and attempts to shut down the program using process termination on Task Manager(taskmgr.exe) the rogue Trojan control program attempts to revive the operation of the rogue P2P programs and will fully operate within 3-5 seconds or even up to 10 seconds depending on processing speed from CPU. No matter how many times the user continues stopping the program it comes right back. When the user attempts to end the task then quickly remove the files even with certain software, the Trojan that controls the rogue programs seems to regenerate the rogue programs which continues to share and download illegal material which can get the user in trouble…”


Much to Andrew Rose’s surprise, ICE officials are prosecuting him for downloading music that ICE attached hidden child porn files to. Andrew (NOT PICTURED) is 17 and autistic.

ESET Virus Radar has recognized the virus, and calls it Win32/MoliVampire. The short description indicates, “Win32/MoliVampire.A is a trojan which tries to download other malware from the Internet. Win32/MoliVampire.A may be spread via peer-to-peer networks.”

The trojan contains an URL address. It tries to download a file from the address. Files are copied into a shared folder of various instant messengers and P2P applications, according to the description.

In a hurried article posted on Before It’s News, a reporter emoted:

So anyone whom receives this virus or variants of Trojans similar to this virus, is at risk of being accused of distributing and possessing child pornography then having the computers and family photos, videos, and other personal data taken away forever. Then will likely end up years in federal or state prison then receives a lifetime sex offender record, isn’t that just great!!!!!

ICE Pads Their Stats

Evidently, it isn’t only alternative-news journalists who are being targeted. According to a Facebook page supporting 17-year-old autistic youth Andrew Rose:

“Operation Flicker was started By ICE [Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency]. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement is the principal investigative arm of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the second largest investigative agency in the federal government. Created in 2003 through a merger of the investigative and interior enforcement elements of the U.S. Customs Service and the Immigration and Naturalization Service, “Operation Flicker” is part of Project Predator, a nationwide ICE initiative to protect children from sexual predators, including instances of sex tourism with minors, Internet child pornographers, criminal alien sex offenders, and child sex traffickers, according to the agency. Unfortunately, due to the system being used to net these predators, many children are being exposed to the the same Child Porn they were trying to stop.”

Apparently, in an effort to catch these dangerous internet predators, ICE attached child pornography images to .mp3 files on P2P sharing sites like LimeWire. Young Andrew Rose downloaded two songs that came with little surprise packages attached. Scandalously and shamefully, Andrew is actually being prosecuted. His lawyer, on the support page, stated:

“The FBI and ICE are the ones who exposed Andrew Rose to Child Pornography ….. They were the Traffickers and became “That which they Seek.”

What Can You Do?

Computer users, especially those who use P2P file sharing programs and messaging, are encouraged to use ESET of McAfee virus scan/destroy software as both recognize the virus. It is noted that virus protection is not “bulletproof” with regard to this virus, and certainly will not protect against hidden attached files in normal sharing operations. If the government is planting child porn on your computer as some people have claimed, taking any and all steps possible to protect yourself and your family, including ceasing use of P2P applications, is advisable.

"Political Dissenters, Beware"
That clears every liberal hater. It implicates every Liberal. Take a guess at who is behind this.
This is fascism at work. How long are the right wingers going to fall for the war on democracy? When we take to the streets, will you be with or against us?

The FBI are the ones that turned over the 14 911 terrorist files to the CIA for cover up. They work for the right.

KInd of ironic that while Cheney and Dubya were privatizing our government agencies/departments/military and bringing their Hitlerian DHS to our world the rightwing thought that government could do no wrong, but once Obama became President and the results of all that took place under the Cheney/Bush administration began to be obvious to all but a few that were in self induced coma's... they did an about face on things.. and government could do nothing right. After the things Cheney/Dubya did and that the GOP in Congress continue to do... along with Corporates buying up Dem.s the last three or four years also...how could/can it !?

Currently I wonder what those at NSA/DHS think about rightwingers who post article/comments..tons of misinformation etc. as well as calling the Preident 'a terrorist'..'jihadist'..and so forth think about their doing so. Especially Teabagers who post rightwing articles/comments/propaganda of racism/hate/fear mongering/''anti-govenment'' stuff daily....You think that might cause them to be tracked in detail and as being suspect ..on more than one 'list' , as to their being anti-government radical rightwing activist..aka...Political Dissenters ?

...no one seems to know whos what or where any more..thats why its so important to know who you are....Words from some ones mouth mean nothing these days...Its difficult sometimes to find the courage to say what one really feels....The worlds leaders just dont get it do they...they seem to think this is all a communist plot..or a right wing plot...or a christian plot..or a muslim plot...or an idiots plot......The way I see it...this is just people saying that they are fed up with crappy governance..frauds and greed and elitism to the point of those with less money suffering...thats not communism.....thats called caring for those who are being screwed by a shitty system...I think thats what Jesus did..no?...so now it becomes a xtian plot....Oh for heavens sake....all those labels....Dont worry about child porn..somethings being using my pc for a while now...I just cross my fingers and hope its God....(lmao)...x

Oh please, this doesn't make much sense. "The story is a bit convoluted here..." is right. If you click to the "Before It’s News" article that this article cites, this person says that the police showed up a month after this so-called virus was planted. He says he "was forced to confess to wanting to harm little children out of a sense to protect his family from harm by the police." and that "He told the police since day one about the virus..." Supposedly he "deleted [the pictures] then tried whatever he could to disable the program but there were enough security holes to get control of his computer..." So the virus just kept downloading child porn to his computer and there was nothing he could do about it?

The second case mentioned about "17-year-old autistic" Andrew Rose makes even less sense. Supposedly he was caught by "Operation Flicker" except that I can find no evidence that he was ever arrested. Supposedly he only downloaded a couple of songs which had embedded child porn in them. Some other sources say that in 2010 the cops showed up at his house and confiscated his computer and then a couple of years later they showed up at his school and arrested him. "Operation Flicker" targeted DOD employees and contractors who were accused of paying to download pics from child porn websites. There is no way Andrew was on that list. Does it really make sense the government would target a 17-year-old autistic boy?

Jason..We will be walking OVER you!!

Jae..You Dubya and Cheney is getting SO BORING!! It means NOTHING!!

Beth...We sure do have a screwed up country no doubt!! It's gotten past depression! As far as what the government can do....all we have to do is look back especially ever since Obama has been in with all of these past scandals that have happened that nobody said would ever happen..and I think we have the answer as to WHAT our government is capable of doing! ;-) And I sure do hope it is God in your computer! ;-)

Roger..Believe what you want..or not!

You don't KNOW this country! All you know is from Reagan on and what fox misinforms you with. This was a great country before you uneducated types grew to what you are today. You will NEVER walk over me.

The republicans stole and ruined america. Fox tells you the Dems are at fault. They lie every day, all day long. It's a proven fact.

Only lazy people let others think for them.
