Late Monday afternoon, the twitter account FawkesSecurity sent out a tweet, linking to a YouTube video along with a pastebin link. An individual wearing a Guy Fawkes mask, the widely known trademark of the activist group Anonymous sits on the screen. In this video the individual makes the claim that 200 kilograms of a composite nitroglycerin and commercial explosives have been placed in a tamper proof apparatus and hidden within a government building somewhere inside the United States, and would detonate remotely on November 5th.
Now there are several things that stuck out about the pastebin that lead me to believe this is a hoax or some other sort of sick prank.
- 200 kilograms of composite nitroglycerin
- commercial explosives
- detonate remotely via transmission control protocol
- severe consiquences
- military grade
Just an FYI, in the US we don’t commonly use the Metric system. Without getting all technical, you got somewhere around 441 pounds of nitroglycerin, which by its self is unstable, and commercial explosives into the US through customs? You have this ‘device’ that would have to be about the size of a refrigerator or drink machine, connected to the Internet? You couldn’t use something like a cellphone cause the battery would die maintaining a data connection that long, so you would have to have it plugged into a LAN or WiFi, inside a government building… wait a minute. Haven’t I seen this movie before? This sounds vaguely like the movies Sum of All Fears, and Die Hard with a Vengeance. Oh and by the way, you spelled consequences wrong.
Yeah, you get the point. Kid, you’ve been watching too many movies.
Hoax or not, you’ve made a threat, a bomb threat against the United States Government. Not something they generally find funny. But you need not worry about us, here at ReaperSec, or those behind the Jester mask. Nope, neither will have anything to do with you being arrested. Like the recent demise of Barrett Brown, this you have done all by yourself. The FBI and/or Interpol will be picking you up soon enough, for a nice extended stay at one of their many luxurious facilities.
So as a once good friend said, tick tock.
The bet is no trolling for one week. Starting Monday 10/8 at 12:00 noon EDT.
- He must be civil to everyone for one week
- He can not troll anyone, even from a sock account
Should he fail, he must perform the ShadowDXS Truffle Shuffle, live on Tinychat, shirtless with in full ICP makeup.
He is fair game. So… Internet, let see what you’ve got.
*** UPDATE (10/15/2012)
ShadowDXS has won the bet. He actually went a whole seven days without trolling a single person. Congrats Shadow!
Just getting my ducks in a row for… well you know. But don’t worry, I won’t say anything.. yet.
Let me start by saying, Mrs. Craven- If in fact you are a real person then I’m extremely sorry th3j35t3r has drug you into this mess he himself created. Not only did he have no right to, but he should be ashamed of himself for doing so.
Now thats out of the way, on to th3j35t3r.
I won’t bore you with details, we’ve already explained why we no longer support th3j35t3r and why we’ve chosen to tell the truth about the silly games he plays. If you wish to know the story, I welcome you to continue reading our previous posts.
First off, and I will make it bold so its easy for you read, jester. ReaperSec did not hack your email account or any other account, nor did Asherah. We’ve even pointed out the person responsible and yet you continue to blame us. For those that don’t know, his twitter account is @ihazwyze. No, we don’t know who it is, no its not another member of ReaperSec. I will however tell you, the nick ‘wise’ was registered on Jul 08 19:16:47 2012, the email address he provided was th3j35t3r’s own email address, and he was using a proxy based out of the UK. Partial IP address of 83.170.x.x
th3j35t3r- You operate on lies, this time those lies have bit you in the ass. You’ve allowed your quest to expand your ego to write a check your ass can’t cash. To be honest, this time you would have looked somewhat credible had you just owned up to it, and admit to your fans that you screwed up. After all you’re only human, right? Instead you chose smoke and mirrors. When that failed and no one bought into your BS you decided to blame ReaperSec. You do, however make a great politician. It must have been a huge blow to you, to lose all those followers on twitter, seeing how thats the only place you exist.
After all the lies you’ve told and those I’ve been witness to, I’m sorry to say that I even question your military service. Prove it, but not to me, to your fans. Those whom without you wouldn’t even exist. At this point I believe they deserve to know at the very least that you are who you claim to be, a military veteran. And I don’t mean having your usuals speak for you. You do it, from your twitter account and your blog.
All this, your blog posts, tweets etc, is just another failed attempt to save face with your fans. Heaven forbid they realize the truth about you. That you are nothing more than a fraud who gets his kicks off by taking credit for other peoples work. After all the crap you said about Gregory D. Evans, turns out your just like him.
Not sure what his next claim to fame will be, but he’ll steal credit for something. Will update when it happens, again.
- July 4, 2012 – Rebrands BeEF calling it Project Looking Glass

What a weekend.
Let’s recap, shall we? With one post found here, a buzz was started that wouldn’t stop for the next 48 hours. It was a slow buzz, but a buzz nonetheless. The response to the blog came a while later and was in the form of threatening tweets and a short, yet to the point, blog written by the hacktivist known as th3j35t3r.
Later on in the day, Mother’s Day, 2012, a series of tweets from a persona named @cubespherical on Twitter began to poke very hard at th3j35t3r
And this image of screen caps was tweeted out by cubespherical later that evening. These are allegedly DMs between th3j35t3r and cubespherical.
Then there was a great hush from th3j35t3r.
Blog posts started disappearing from http://th3j35t3r.wordpress.com as you can see. As of late evening, May 14th, 2012, the blog is empty.
The story first broke at the Illuminate Blog with updates through out the day.
Some time before noon Eastern Standard Time, http://twitter.com/th3j35t3r was deactivated, and just like that, th3j35t3r was off the air.
Other posts started coming out like this Pastebay Post of a PM with th3j35t3r. In this log it is clear that th3j35t3r prides himself on “2 and a half years in with a high profile.”
Then there was what could be considered the coup de grace. A post from Chongelong on Twitter.
Were these famous last words, or was this just another intricate detail in a secret operation conducted by those who are behind the th3j35t3r persona?
