Terror Suspect Found With Secret Al Qaeda Files Hidden In Porno, In His Underwear On A Memory Stick





There’s a lot of ways that one could transport secret files but you really have to give an Austrian man by the name of Maqsood Lodin a real ‘E’ for effort even though in the long run he got detained and found out.

It seems that Lodin was on a watch list and when taken into custody in Germany investigators found that he was carrying hundreds of Al Qaeda secret documents hidden within pornographic videos on a USB menory stick that he had stashed in his underwear.

It turns out that the discovery of the documents was an incredibly lucky break because they contained plans for future terror attacks as well as information on previous attacks in the U.K. and India. there were also documents on how Al Qaeda as an organization could perform better.

On of the things that investigators discovered is that Al Qaeda is looking at taking a two pronged attitude with it comes to their attacks. The one prong involves things like hijacking ocean-going cruise ships and taking the passengers hostage in order to see their demands are met.

The other type of attacks that are discussed are hotel attacks similar to the one in Mumbai, India, back in 2008 where 164 people were killed.

One has to admit that the idea of hiding sensitive documents inside of porno videos like “Kick Ass” and “Sexy Tanja” is pretty clever but come on, if you are going to do that the last place to hide the memory stick that they are on in your underwear. If he had left it in his coat pocket or in a briefcase they probably wouldn’t have been found.

About the Author

Steven has been around the tech world long enough to see most of the stuff we think of cool happen before which leads to a certain bit of cynicism that has contributed to him being known as the cranky old fart of the Internet. Besides sharing some of the goodness that he finds with you here at 42x you can also find him curating some digital goodness at Winextra (tech type stuff) and Rotten Gumdrops (for your daily dose of WTF).
