Got zero human rights. What to do?

I am being targeted by a very sofisticated actor.

Firmware rootkit confirmed on my devices.
They go after devices from other people to keep up to me too.
I also suspect they can do advanced voice and face recognition.

Family does not believe me and won’t help anyway.

Tried to get help from a NGO, but they said I needed witnesses, and I don’t have - not easy in a case like this.

Police is worse than useless where I am, so ‘no go’ there too.

Not much I can do. No, I don’t have the money to buy a Librem. Sad.

Get off all social media. If you live in a ok country, wear full mask around your head including ears and hair. If not, maybe wear a respirator type as an excuse and if that isn’t viable, move away from urban areas and do not use any technology. If you can’t do any of that, I am really not sure.

Please consider this reply as an optional solution that will help you:

At least you have the right to understand what is going on around you. Maybe you didn’t watch: Who’s Spying on Your Phone - Part 1 and Who’s Spying on Your Phone - Part 2 YouTube videos.

Just take your SIM card out when not needed.

Still other forms of tracking though with other geo location services from connecting to WIFI with their phones EMEI being tracked so when other people had connected to that WIFI, they could know where they were and therefore exactly where that WIFI is and track when they connect their device. Also gyroscopes/accelerometers being very developed in phones of today so still being able to track where they were and uploading that information when connected to the internet and then being able to find them again. Technology was made to spy. Do not use technology.

Yes, this is true what you wrote, even though I was referring to IMSI at the first place.

oops sorry.

Do you know the identity of that actor? If so, are you prepared to identify here the nature of that actor? e.g. state actor? criminal gang? corporation? personal vendetta?

It is possible that you should have posted this in the registered users only category so that it is not publicly visible. If you wish to do that then you should create a new user and discard this one.

Are you getting a professional to resolve that? It may be quite difficult. What kind of device? Firmware on what device?

Maybe buy a cheap non-smart phone. That will reduce the attack surface for the phone (but obviously if the sophisticated actor is your own government then you should just not use a mobile phone at all).

criminal gang.

Doubt they are the coding masterminds, but they must have ties to other global actors.

Nope. Don’t think it is worth to pay someone to reflash a bios with a panoma. Gotta put them all in the trash.

x86_64, iPhones, Androids, ARM routers.

Was thinking of a Chromebook, because it seems the bios should not be writeable without physical access, but with the latest news about older Intel processors being vunerable, I am not sure yet.

For your Android and iPhones, the answer is easy. Just do a factory reset. Unless you rooted your phone, nothing on your phone should able to survive a factory reset. If your phone was rooted, you might be out of luck. Doing a deep wipe on a proprietary system (if you can even do it) will probably brick the device if you don’t have the manufacturers secret firmware to restore afterward. If your PC is infected, you needed a Librem PC anyway. Time to get one.

I think a remotely compromised iPhone would be worth a lot, may have evidence of how it was compromised.

I recommend selling the devices or at least donating them for research purposes

you’ve posted this at a time when the shit hadn’t hit the fan full blast yet … but i’m beginning to think we all need a human rights lawyer … and maybe a priest just in case ! :mask:

BTW, PureOS (like any Debian) is vulnerable to bootkit (firmware level rootkit) on non Librem machines.

Wonder if being dead like that guy killed by police is that bad when the alternative is being a living slave.

a slave killed by somebody else’s slave … :sweat:
