“By Al-Sisi’s willingness to cooperate, but now the facts. Never on an official visit in Egypt without the truth”

A “tangible manifestation of will” on the case Regeni. A signal, which the government hopes in the coming meeting between Italian judges and the egyptians, on the first of July. Giuseppe Conte says he asked the egyptian president Abdel Fattah Al Sisi in the interview that they had the phone on the 7th of June, in front of a new declaration of “willingness to cooperate”. The premier is heard for more than two hours of the commission of inquiry on Giulio Regeni. And defends the choice of “intensify” its relations with Egypt, not to interrupt them, as a tool to get results.


Regeni, Count: “barbaric killing is always in the top agenda for the government.”

The government, ensures, has made a “timely and constant request of” get “requests for assistance” necessary to the indictments of the five persons being investigated in Italy for the “barbaric murder” of Giulio Regeni. “If there is inability to achieve results more the you can blame me directly”, she said to the parents of the researcher friulano. The Alloy is absent in the commission, in disagreement with the choice to set the hearing to 22. But the Count explains that there were other areas on the agenda, came as soon as possible. The premier asks you to secretare part of the speech in which he refers to what he has said in the last interview of 7 June, the egyptian president, Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, as a matter of fairness to a head of foreign State.

For the rest of the session is public and incalzarlo the president of the commission and deputy Leu-Erasmo Palazzotto and the member of Pd Lia Quartapelle, that the premier realize given the “staggering” of the sale of arms to Egypt: “when you are the president of the council of Egypt, passed by the forty and second country with which commerciavamo weapons, the tenth country in 2018, the first,” says Quartapelle. “In addition to the two frigates Frimm sold in Cairo, there are nine billion of orders in armaments”, stresses the Palace, and asking if the Earl does not intend to affect future contracts, the results on the case Regeni and stop the relationships without results.

Frigates of Egypt: from the cdm the green light to the sale

The premier does not respond in the specific, but defends the principle: “Better a dialogue for franco, and at times frustrane rather than stop the relationship. I can not exclude it, but we are not yet to that point, we will verify step-by-step. There is absolute stasis, but steps forward and small inappaganti,” says Conte. That refers to both of the meeting on 14 January in Cairo with Abdel Fattah al Sisi and the phone last June 7. On every occasion, assures, “I raised” the case for Regeni. And until that is resolved you will be able to “fully develop” the diplomatic relations between Italy and Egypt, starting from the refusal to carry out State visits to Cairo.

“The wound can not heal” and worries, stresses, the premier, the “slowness of the collaboration” judicial even though the new attorney of Cairo, the cooperation seemed to improve. “Tough on the truth, we hope to reach,” says the premier. But in the meantime, the interruption of diplomatic relations, already been decided in the past, with the withdrawal of the ambassador, to Count is not the best solution.

“The maintenance of an exchange constant” of Egypt “allows you to demand respect” of the commitments. Confront “is not to justify and forget, but try to influence”. In addition, the Cairo has a crucial role in Libya and Syria, in the fight against terrorism and in the management of migration flows: the one that Italy has is not a “mere economic cooperation”. Crucial to understand if the steps forward, the concrete as possible will be the meeting – the twelfth – in program between the two weeks between the pm and the Italian and those of the attorney general in Cairo. Italian prosecutors will await the responses on the requests made on certain telephone records and letters rogatory sent to April 2019, which calls on the judicial authorities of the Cairo confirmations on the presence in Nairobi, in August of 2017, one of the five suspects in Rome, the eldest Sharif, who according to a witness would have told of “how the seizure of Julius” in the course of a lunch.

But another act, the formal but essential, is intended to give the measure of concrete steps forward: the response to the notification request of the legal domicile of the five suspects. It would be, and he observes Maio, “a significant step forward”.

Opinion: the story of the blackmail of $5.7 million in Ethereum-the Commission is not tenable

The researcher ZenGo Alex Manushkin questioned the arguments of analysts PeckShield of extortion by hackers as an explanation of the strange transaction record commissions in Ethereum.

10, unknown person translated 0,55 ETH, paying as Commission 10 668 ETH (about $2.6 million). The next day, that same address was sent to 350 ETH with the same abnormally high Commission. A day later, but with another address, followed by a new transaction, within which was paid 2310 ETH ($538 thousand) for the translation 3221 ETH ($751 thousand)

Analysts PeckShield put forward the hypothesis that such actions may indicate an attempt of extortion by a hacker who gains partial access to the hot wallet of the exchange.

“The hackers got partial access to the wallet of the exchange; they cannot withdraw money, but I can send unsuccessful transaction with any gas price. So they threaten to “burn” all the money through transactional fees, if not followed by compensation,” wrote Buterin.

Different opinion researcher Alex Minuskin for which this theory looks workable only when there are “detached from common sense the circumstances.”

In confirmation of his words, the employee ZenGo asked a question about what the motivation of the owner of the hacked account, which has not taken any action in response to the first incident.

“The transaction was not suspended. If hackers got control, why the account holder does not intervene in the process?” — rhetorically asked Menuskin.

According to the analyst, if the hackers really got limited access to the wallet, which allowed them to send the transaction to the address “white list” (i.e. customer addresses, pre-approved by the owner), it is logical full lock operation in order to prevent the risk that funds will go in a different direction.

“If it was really a bug, you have to be insane not to take any action,” explained the researcher.

Begs the question of the researcher’s version of extortion, and that this is contrary to how the storage of digital assets in large companies:

“Imagine a service that operates with funds in the amount of $10 million, does not store a backup of the keys and does nothing to try to seal the gap is incomprehensible,” — said Minuskin.

The analyst suggested that the address might belong to “some kind of service in East Asia”, to which users have access “with various exchanges, including Bithumb, OKEx, Coinone and others.”

This week, two mining-pool, is involved in the chain of anomalous transactions Etherchain and Sparkpool — have announced that they intend to distribute $5.2 million compensation they received from the validation transaction. Both pools said that they gave enough time to the sender to contact them.

“If it was indeed blackmail, we would expect that the victim will immediately contact the miners to regain the lost funds, but this did not happen,” said Minuskin.

As a result, the representative ZenGo came to the conclusion that transactions are the result of some error in an automated script that runs this account.

In the company blog confirming it led, as he believes prove his hypothesis:

  • the same sender with the same exact, not rounded fees;
  • the account was used to send the transaction approximately every minute, so it was not like a person;
  • the account continued to send transactions after the first $2.5 million, including additional transaction of $2.5 million in commissions, the error was not identified. If they ran a man, then the problem most likely would be immediately identified and would have forced the owner to stop the transfers.

ForkLog previously reported that in Ethereum with the beginning of the year significantly increased transaction fees, largely due to the growing popularity of Ponzi schemes such as “MMM”.

The researchers identified a possible cause of anomalous transactions in Ethereum

Two anomalous transaction Ethereum, in which the sender has paid $5.2 million Commission linked to extortion. That’s the conclusion came analysts PeckShield.

10, unknown person translated 0,55 ETH, paying as Commission 10 668 ETH (about $2.6 million).

The next day, that same address was sent to 350 ETH with the same abnormally high Commission.

PeckShield experts believe that this is due to the extortion of a hacker who received partial access to the hot wallet of the exchange.

According to them, the sequence of actions was as follows:

  • the result of a phishing attack, the hacker gained access to the address;
  • technology multipoles did not allow an attacker to send funds to their wallets;
  • he found that is able to translate cryptocurrency addresses from the white list of the exchange and to control the price of gas, just a “burning” platform tools;
  • the hacker had carried out two transactions with abnormal commissions and demanded the exchange of the ransom, threatening to spend all the available assets.

According PeckShield, the wallet stays 21 000 ETH (about $5 million). Analysts pointed out that the hacker continues to control server permissions for the wallet and the exchange is not able to prevent further losses. The victim trading platform in PeckShield not called.

The attention of users this week drew another Ethereum transaction with the extremely high Commission is associated with a pool MiningPoolHub address 2310 ETH paid ($538 thousand) for the translation 3221 ETH ($751 thousand).

Director of production Forecast Foundation, the organization behind the project Augur, That Kaysar thinks it was the result of a direct hacking of the purse pool.
