During the past year, a team of lawyers, journalists, researchers and cyber-security experts worked on unraveling the biggest cyber-terrorism operation in history.
The State of Qatar tried through this sophisticated operation to target the private lives and communications of more than 1200 public figures and officials from various countries including rival states and their allies
- Litigation has revealed that since at least 2014, a Qatar-linked cyber organization has orchestrated a global cyber campaign against enemies of the State of Qatar in the United States, Europe, and the Middle East.
-The attackers targeted numerous Americans and Europeans, in total more than 1,200 government officials, businesspeople, journalists, reformers, and other prominent individuals and their families in the United States, Europe, and throughout the MENA region.
-This is the first time a Gulf-based cyber operation has targeted American citizens and political targets on U.S. soil. The campaign is a highly sophisticated and well-financed intelligence and disinformation campaign designed to both gather information and publicly undermine enemies of Qatar. •
-A months-long investigation uncovered thousands of pages of encoded records, IP and email addresses used by the attackers, and websites that were used to collect victims’ private information, all of which provide a step-by-step account of the attackers’ conduct.
- The attackers exploited services offered by numerous American companies such as Google and Apple, including by creating webpages that misused these companies’ logos to violate the public’s trust and trick victims into providing their private information.
This operation is being documented in a documentary film that will be broadcast soon in several languages. The goal is to raise awareness against the dangers that emerge when a nation terrorizes people and uses information stolen from their email accounts as a weapon to blackmail its targets.
The state of Qatar did not only breach international treaties, but it also breached the norms and ethics by targeting the email addresses of football players, artists, businessmen, heads of state and politicians from Arab and Western countries.
They disseminated to the press some of the stolen content off the targets they breached. Their goal was to blackmail influential people in society in an attempt to weaken and intervene in the internal domestic affairs of certain nations.
This unprecedented hack operation is an obvious breach of the regulations of the FIFA at a time when Qatar is slated to host the 2022 World Cup.
Cyber-terrorism has become a horrific reality that we document in an upcoming documentary film. We fiercely object to this crime and stand against it through various mediums including this petition.
This operation could destroy people’s lives and is mainly used to blackmail the targets who all seem to have political views opposing the policies of the State of Qatar including Qatari dissidents living in exile.
