A Department of Justice press release from 29 Aug 23 indicates that the DOJ and FBI accessed, possibly searched and then altered [removed] contents from 200,000 U.S. and 700,000 worldwide computers: Qakbot Malware Disrupted in International Cyber Takedown
The operating systems and other software installed across the globe employ user (slave) license agreements, which must be accepted by users (strong armed, given no choice, I'll make you an offer you can't refuse). I've long suspected that buried in these long, unreadable, incomprehensible, techno-legaleze electronic statements/documents, revised and changed at will, is wording granting MS, Google, and countless other leftist/globalist fiends tacit permission to do anything and everything with our "personal" computers and devices. And those license owners (masters) in turn quasi-legally grant governmental entities back-door access to do likewise.
Excellent post. I was not even aware of this incident.
Let's not forget the 'fortuitous' Solar Winds breach which we still don't know the full ramifications of to this day.
