Belgian Police have Breached the Encryption of Xrypt Phone to Crackdown Criminals




In a similar operation conducted on Sky ECC network back in 2021, 23 hardcore criminals have been taken to task this time.

Criminals often use encrypted networks for their discreet communication, having no clue that it can be compromised by tech experts who are a step ahead in cracking codes. Law enforcement agencies are constantly on the move, keeping tabs on criminal activities that dwell in the background, far from the eyes of law, with the idea of going unnoticed. Many such operations have been conducted by law enforcement agencies in the past involving the use of technology which has helped in tightening the grip on criminal activities. In a recent operation, the Belgian police raided several hideouts of those who were tracked down due to their communication over encrypted phones by Xrypt. The devices were programmed to erase users data within seconds of being sent, but unfortunately the data was recorded on the network’s servers which worked against the criminals who were using it as the officials decrypted the chat messages and notes stored on the servers and booked those who were suspected of running various criminal activities including drug dealings, illegal firearms dealings and even plotting murders.

According to reports, 23 criminals have been arrested so far as they have been found guilty of running various illegal activities. It has been found that the police tracked the suspected criminals based on their phone’s IMEI number & cellphone tower location. The phones had IMEI changing feature which helped the police zero down the notorious 23. Also, these gang members paid high subscription charges to use the decrypted services, which helped lawmakers keep an eagle’s eye before acting on them. The decrypted messages and notes carried confidential information about drug distributors and clients, and also had loads of information about firearm deals and murder plots. The officials have been keeping a close eye on Xrypt users since a long time, having found many instances where the communication of users is directed towards criminal activities. As many might be able to recall, a similar crackdown was initiated way back in 2021 on Sky ECC network, whose users were also involved in criminal activities.

The decryption of Xrypt’s network has opened up a can of worms as many illegal businesses and activities of its users have come to light, which might lead to many more arrests in the coming days.

Bringing clean water – Christopher Kenny’s Preservation Earth Project




Science plainly shows that a human can survive three weeks without food, yet most individuals cannot survive three to four days without water! Dehydration sets in, and the person will go into shock and become vegetative even if they continue to breathe. In other words, water is an essential requirement. A living thing cannot thrive without it. Nonetheless, it is a horrifying truth that billions of people worldwide lack access to safe drinking water. 

In developed countries, when everything from technology to luxury is available, receiving clean water at home is as ‘natural’ as breathing fresh air. Most individuals in advanced nations may not pay much attention to it, but this is not the case for the rest of the globe. Many countries continue to lack access to clean water sources or water appropriate for human use. Safe drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene at home should not be limited to the wealthy or those who live in cities. These are some of the most fundamental human health requirements, and all countries must ensure everyone has access to them.

The Preservation Earth Project (PEP) made its way to Tsaile, New Mexico. Over time, uranium mining, fracking, and pesticide abuse damaged the water supply, resulting in a high occurrence of numerous illnesses. Approximately 35% of the Navajo people do not have access to flowing water, and some must go to a remote location to fill barrels with water from a polluted local spring. 

There is no doubt that climate change is boosting storm strength. Recent natural catastrophes have heightened the need for groups to step up and give support, answers, and relief to individuals affected by such natural disasters. The Preservation Earth Project is a non-profit organization that provides support, education, and solutions to help society transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy.

Making clean water available to everyone

In 2012, Kenny founded The Preservation Earth Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. It provides assistance, education, and alternative energy solutions to help society shift to renewable energy. It was involved and aided Haiti several times after the 2010 earthquake, providing portable solar electricity for water purification and medical facilities. In 2020, the business devised a solution for the Navajos’ contaminated water source. They collaborated with engineers and local officials to build, produce, and install a solar-powered water filtration system for the Navajo people of Tsaile, New Mexico. Other activities have included providing portable solar power to the “Cajun Navy” for rescue and clean-up in areas devastated by the 2015-2021 hurricane season in Louisiana. 

The project designed, delivered, and installed a solar-powered filtration system that will provide clean drinking water to the local Navajo community 365 days a year for many years to come. Several more initiatives are in the works to provide safe drinking water to Native American communities on the Navajo Reservation.

President’s letters of gratitude

President Jimmy Carter sent Chris two heartfelt letters encouraging him to continue his charitable work. He suggested calling Habitat for Humanity and asking if they were interested in collaborating on a few projects. He and Kenny both helped out at the charity.
