Interview with Forward Observer

I recently had a short interview with Forward Observer regarding Bitcoin and Crypto-assets. 

There is a lot of interest being generated right now in this field, and for good reason. Whether your interest lies in protecting your assets, seeking better investment vehicles or just enhancing your privacy; you would be wise to study up on crypto......it's not going away.

SEPIO Laptop **SPECIAL DEAL**

*** SOLD ***


I have a special going right now on a SEPIO secure laptop. This is on special due to my putting a couple light scratches on the lid while working on it. The specs are as follows:

- i7 CPU (versus the normal i5)

- 12GB DDR4 RAM

- 256GB SSD

- 15.6 inch Full HD touchscreen

- Full aluminum chassis with backlit keyboard

- SEPIO Secure OS (latest build)

This model normally goes for $1400, but I am knocking $100 off due to the scratch. My mistake is your gain....

As with all SEPIO's, the RAM and SSD can be upgraded on request.

The i7 models are rare, so get it while you can.

Now before anyone panics I should point out a couple things:

1. A patch for this has been released already for the following distros:

  SEPIO OS
    Linux Mint
    Ubuntu
    Debian (and most distros based on Debian)
    opesource Android Lineage OS

Simply run your update manager (or sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade in terminal) and you are good to go.

2. If you were following my advice and utilizing the WPA2-CCMP/AES version as opposed to WPS or TKIP the damage would have been far less.

3. There are currently no patches available for:

  Windows (I know, shocking)
    Mac OSX
    iOS
    Android
    non-Debian Linux (Suse, Fedora, Arch, etc)

If you are on one of these systems you ne…
