Hacktivists turn to NFTs to raise money

The Belarusian Cyber Partisans, a hacktivist collective working to topple the autocratic leadership of Belarus, listed a series of digital “passports” related to Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko and his associates as NFTs for sale Tuesday, hoping to raise money for continued actions against the government. The NFT marketplace where they were listed, OpenSea, pulled the listing, saying the group violated the company's terms of service. A Cyber Partisans spokesperson tells CyberScoop the group will try a different platform. AJ Vicens reports.

State Department debars ex-NSA operatives

The State Department has banned three former National Security Agency employees from working on any matters related to the International Traffic in Arms Regulations, which regulates the sale of military technologies overseas, due to their involvement in helping the United Arab Emirates carry out a widespread surveillance campaign to spy on dissidents, journalists and politicians. The so-called disbarment for the former intelligence operatives will last at least three years, according to a State Department ruling released late last week. The agency’s settlement with Ryan Adams, Marc Baier and Daniel Gericke for alleged violations of State Department-administered ITAR is just the latest development in a scandal first revealed by Reuters in 2019. Suzanne Smalley covers it.
