    New Revelations in Case of Chinese Businesswoman Arrested at Mar-a-Lago

    New Revelations in Case of Chinese Businesswoman Arrested at Mar-a-Lago - The New York Times

    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — The international finance consultant accused of illegally entering President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida knew several days before she traveled to the United States that the gala she had paid to attend had been canceled, federal prosecutors said on Monday.

    The disclosure raised new questions about the intentions of the woman, Yujing Zhang, 33, who told the authorities she had come to attend a United Nations Chinese Friendship Association event associated with a gala that night. Instant messages recovered from one of her cellphones revealed that Ms. Zhang had been told even before she left Shanghai that the Mar-a-Lago event had been canceled, Rolando Garcia, an assistant United States attorney, told the court. Ms. Zhang had texted back, Mr. Garcia said, “wanting to know why the event was canceled.”
    ======================================
    I think it should be apparent by now that the woman had malicious intent, considering the thumb drive with the potent malware she carried into the Winter White House. I'm glad the Feds are probing deeper into this lady's intentions.

    I'd be interested to know what the "potent malware" actually was. Since the press has been referring to What'sApp as an "encrypted messaging system" I'd really like to know if the malware was Stuxnex or Nigerian Lottery.

    Given that she also had some sort of device used for finding hidden security cameras, I’m going with closer to the first one.

    I think that malware is now buried deep inside the NSA at Ft. Meade. They are likely analyzing it for signatures that relate to its origin.

    WhatsApp end-to-end encryption ensures only you and the person you're communicating with can read what's sent, and nobody in between, not even WhatsApp. Your messages are secured with locks, and only the recipient and you have the special keys needed to unlock and read your messages.

    WhatsApp and Viber are popular in Russia because they are end to end encrypted. The common ground between both is that every single message is encrypted using a different secret key that is deleted after the message is received and decrypted on the device. Whatsapp and Viber have no way to give message details even if they wanted to. There is no backdoor or secret key the developers can give to any government.

    She had four cell phones, a thumb drive, a portable drive and a laptop when she talked her way into the resort.

    Yeah...nothing suspicious about that, eh?

    Seriously, who walks around with four cell phones?
