German Government Warns Not to Use Windows 8- Links NSA to Your Computer

Posted on Wednesday, 28th August 2013 @ 11:41 AM by Text Size A | A | A

Why do you think Windows 8 came out so suddenly, after Windows 7? Was it because they wanted to appeal to people using touch screens, or to benefit the NSA and other miners for data Microsoft shares? A built in ‘backdoor’ was discovered recently in Windows 8, allowing Microsoft to do a range of things, such as control your computer remotely, extract data, and do much more.

However, much more importantly, the NSA very likely has full access to it. Likely enough for the German government to warn their fellow government agencies not to use Windows 8. Ironically the Chinese may even have access to this backdoor cleverly hidden in this new operating system. Rüdiger Weis, a professor at Beuth University of Technology in Berlin, told the person who leaked this information that Microsoft wanted to change everything, by integrating “a special surveillance chip” into every electronic device they can.

The backdoor that allows for the abuse of Windows 8 user data can be called ‘Trusted Computing’, created by Trusted Computing Group, a possibly scary alliance of American tech giants IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Wave Systems, AMD, Cisco, and Hewlett-Packard. As deceptions from corporations and government tend to be disguised, the named use of this backdoor is for security. It’s named purpose is to decide what software has been legally obtained and should be allowed to run, while disabling trojans, viruses, or illegal software. This backdoor is essentially in a chip called the TPM, or Trusted Platform Module. The user cannot turn off the TPM, and it is not visible to the user. Experts at the German Ministry of Economic Affairs, BSI, and the Federal Administration warned government employees strongly against using computers with Windows 8, and TPM 2.0.

A leaked document says “Due to the loss of full sovereignty over the information technology, the security objectives of ‘confidentiality’ and ‘integrity’ can no longer be guaranteed.” it continues to say “This can have significant consequences on the IT security of the Federal Administration.” And furthermore, “The use of ‘Trusted Computing’ technology in this form … is unacceptable for the Federal Administration and for operators of critical infrastructure.”[1]

It appears that people in other countries are even more concerned about the US government than most Americans. If you would like to spread the word about this hidden vulnerability, don’t forget to share this info with a Windows 8 user.
