Dickson Yeo: International Man of Mystery *giggle*

leave a comment »

I recently went on Blogs of War: Covert Contact and talked with John about online OPSEC and social media. In the process of prepping for the podcast, I went and looked up the stories about LinkedIN being used as a means for Chinese espionage. I had often written about this in the past, and in fact had specifically talked about LinkedIN and how much people over share there. Well, I was given a small surprise when I did, It turns out ‘Dickson Yeo‘, the guy arrested by the feds recently, was someone on my LinkedIN. I remember him as being someone I held at arms length and thought that this account was probably a cutout. Turns out I was right. Full disclosure, he messaged me a few times about posts I had made here and complimented me, but, like I said, and many of you who know me personally, I am not so much a cuddly guy, so he went on his way. Of course later on I was banned from LinkedIN anyway (no I still don’t know why, they would not tell me) so, yeah…. You can hear more on the story and on LinkedIN and our oversharing here on;
