Key Findings

    *   This report describes how Ethiopian dissidents in the US, UK, and other countries were targeted with emails containing sophisticated commercial spyware posing as Adobe Flash player updates and PDF plugins. Targets include a US-based Ethiopian diaspora media outlet, the Oromia Media Network (OMN), a PhD student, and a lawyer. During the course of our investigation, one of the authors of this report was also targeted.

    *   We found a public logfile on the spyware’s command and control server and monitored this logfile over the course of more than a year. We saw the spyware’s operators connecting from Ethiopia, and infected computers connecting from IP addresses in 20 countries, including IP addresses we traced to Eritrean companies and government agencies.

ምናለሽ መቲ፤ ኢትዮጵያውያን ሁሉ ከሕወሃት ጋር ችግር እንዳላቸው በተደጋጋሚ ገሃድ ሆኗአል፤ ለመሆኑ የጋምቤላውያኖችስ ችግር ይለይ ይሆን?

ኢትዮጵያውያን ሕወሃት በከለለው “ክልል” ሕዝቡ ተከልሏል – ያልተከለለው ቤት መሬታችንን እንደፈቀደ የሚዘርፈው ሕወሃት ብቻ ነው!”

    የግብርና ልማቱ ዘርፍ በዘረፋና ጥፋት ጎዳና – የተለመደው የሕወሃቶች የጋምቤላ ዘረፋና በሃገር ላይ እየተፈጸመ ያለው ጥቃት

    The issue in Gambella commercial farms is ethnicity. Why are some Ethiopians more privileged than others, in Gambella the army killing tens of thousands to keep them ‘safe’! There’s crime to unveil!

    Benishangul-Gumuz in protest against corrupt TPLF land grabber-commanders turned gold prospectors; protesters against robbery of their natural resources imprisoned, some killed

    Land grab at Lafto, Addis Abeba: Helpless people; home demolitions & impunity of state power; police & city officials killed, injured

    South Omo Valley’s cruelest land grab: TPLF soldiers tie together Ethiopians & shepherd them like animals to desperation & deaths

    TPLF’s hunger for cash crops & forex has been forcing more land grab and the consequent evictions & dehumanization of Ethiopians

    Rural land grab has unleashed mass dislocation, imposed financial risks on Ethiopia – while benefitting some investors: Case Karuturi
