"Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron." -- Dwight D. Eisenhower

Remote desktop software maker AnyDesk disclosed on Friday that it suffered a cyber attack that led to a compromise of its production systems.

The German company said the incident, which it discovered following a security audit, is not a ransomware attack and that it has notified relevant authorities.

"We have revoked all security-related certificates and systems have been remediated or replaced where necessary," the company said in a statement. "We will be revoking the previous code signing certificate for our binaries shortly and have already started replacing it with a new one."

Out of an abundance of caution, AnyDesk has also revoked all passwords to its web portal, my.anydesk[.]com, and it's urging users to change their passwords if the same passwords have been reused on other online services.

Health officials in the United Kingdom have confessed that the medical-grade masks the government pushed on everyone during COVID are completely useless at protecting people from disease.

The UK Health Security Agency (UKHSA) published a report covering an investigation into the most popular medical-grade masks that people used during the "pandemic," including the N95, KN95 and FFP2 models that public health authorities said would prevent COVID "droplets" from spreading.

Data was collected up through September 2022 and included at-risk groups such as people with Down's syndrome, some cancer patients and people with immune system disorders.

Scientists looked at a total of 4,371 studies about COVID, not a single one of which addressed the effectiveness of N95 and other equivalent face masks. In fact, at the conclusion of the investigation, researchers were unable to find a single piece of usable scientific evidence to back the wearing of a medical-grade face covering for protection against COVID.

 Standing inconspicuously in the middle of an empty lot behind some trees, in the small English town of Halifax, West Yorkshire, is a terrifying media instrument of torture. It's called a gibbet, and for over three hundred and fifty years it used to behead people for minor crimes like theft.
