Continuing the discussion from "They managed to hack the AppVM Whonix-gw-15 on one of my secure Qubes install":
The purpose of posting this thread is not to provide any technical security breach evidence, but simply to warn that nation-state actors can hack Qubes OS easily. As Qubes OS is famed as the most secure OS in the market, this is a bit worrisome.
On March 22, after posting 2 Tweet replies, saying that Russia will lose the war in Ukraine, my Qubes OS (4.0) got hacked (recorded video) when browsing Twitter with Disposable: Whonix-ws. The culprits are purportedly Russia and Vietnam state-backed hackers as I discovered a dirty cooperative disinformation campaign between Russia & Vietnam against some countries back in 2019 and reporting their wrongdoings to relevant countries, which caused a certain damage to these 2 countries. Therefore, they’ve followed me ever since.
Tabs on disposable Whonix-ws Tor were suddenly broken. Clicking on Opening new tab button, there was no tab shown up. When closing disposable Whonix-ws Tor window, the notification wrote that there were many tabs being about to close. Please watch the video to understand it. This happened to me not just once, but many times within a month after switching from Windows to Qubes OS. Besides this, mouse click also got problem, i.e. one click became double-click and left mouse sometimes got the functionality of right mouse and vice versa. Furthermore, Wifi connection was often off when posting something negative about Russia.
This is not surprising as I have been cyber-spied on by Russia & Vietnam almost 24/7 for several years. Even going to internet shops in hope of evading their cyber-espionage, I still get cyber-spied on. I’m not sure how they can detect me in various internet shops, but I suspect it might have something to do with machine learning.
Other examples before I was using Qubes OS
Some recorded video:
In January, when being about to post a comment with a particular content on my old blog, which describes Russian and Vietnamese cooperative disinformation campaign against some countries in 2019, disk usage of my PC suddenly jumped to 100% and got frozen temporarily. After posting the comment and pressing F5 to refresh page, it disappeared unexplainably, whereas after altering its content and posting, the altered comment still appeared normally. The blog isn’t hacked and controlled by other people. I simply forget its password. It appears vivid that someone/some people were watching what I was doing on my PC and trying to stop it.Some recorded videos:
Since Qubes OS is quite complicated to use but doesn’t provide the security as expected, I have switched to a more user-friendly OS, Kali Linux. Of course, it still gets hacked. It seems to be impossible to escape Russian and Vietnamese cyber-espionage, if they are determined to follow their targets. I suspect that Edward Snowden might have his laptop hacked and cyber-spied on for a long time by nation-state actors without realizing it, since he uses Qubes OS.
