A Peek Behind the Wire?

  • 10 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

Last night we were forwarded a link, which purportedly linked to a story on the website of the state’s newspaper of record. But when we got there, this is what we saw:

This, um, “error” appears to have been corrected as of this morning, but we verified that other people had seen it–it appears to have redirected an error message on stories that had been replaced with newer versions. In most cases, these are links that wouldn’t be easy to find.

We’ll start by saying that we don’t think there is any actual threat from having viewed this page, and you should be safe to continue browsing the web pages of the Denver paper (assuming you still do). What we’re less clear on is whether this is simply a hack job from an external source (less likely given the content), or a disgruntled employee planting a warning in pages “Denver Post Employees” would be more likely to find than anyone else?

A poll follows, while we check our tinfoil supply…

Why was this "We Are Watching You" message found on the Denver Post's website?

  1.  a Tool.

    I really cannot believe how Clean Democrats have to be in the comments section. YET all the propaganda attacks stay up.

    Watching keystrokes does not surprise me in the least.

    and the republicans will overlook it as Nothing to see here.

  2. Pols, are you sure that EVERYONE who saw this is not somebody who the Denver Post might, for whatever reason, want to drop a keylogger on? It’s easier to do than you think.

    I hope you’re right and that it’s nothing. Something seems awfully weird about it. If I have to visit the Denver Ghost, I think I’ll use a proxy server and block every script just to be safe.

  3. say that earlier this year the Post learned it had an enormous porn-watching problem on its hands. Everyone except for Tim Hoover was addicted. Bartles’ productivity, for example, completely tanked. So now they’re monitoring. Some of the worst offenders are attending rehab. That’s all. When you work for a corporation, even an “information” corporation, you just don’t get to free surf. Party’s over. Everyone out of the pool!

  4. IT guy sick of being asked to pull browser histories and comb through them to justify firing people “for cause” and denying them unemployment.

  5. If every company were to put a message like this on their servers once in a blue moon – not actually buy the keystroke-tracking software, etc., mind you, just put a message like that out – productivity in the U.S. would absolutely skyrocket.

    1. Durning the most recent oil boom in Grand Junction, developers and homebuilders flooded the market. One company I was familiar with featured the owners (wheeler-dealers who spent a goodly portion of their development loans on their own toys and travels) who had programs installed whereby they could monitor all their employees’ computers.

      They threatened, belittled and fired those whom they deemed unproductive. They did much of their monitoring while on vacation, just making sure that their minions at the home office did nothing but work, work, work.

      When the downturn hit, they took the company bankrupt and left town. Their employees were left with nothing and no recourse.

      It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Singleton is doing the same thing.
