The Panama Papers, see for yourself

From Deutsche Welle

The International Consortium of Investigative Journalists (ICIJ) has created a database where anyone can look through the Panama Paper. You should be hearing a whole lot more about it in the coming weeks as outsiders see morr recognizable names start to surface.

There has also a dirth of reaction from Congress, as some have been complaining. Many in Congress probably do not want to discover that their associates and allies are linked to this inflammatory issue.

Len Gotshalk, former NFL player, created a shell corporation. Whether the activities in his. company are lehal or not is one concern. Another is that not his nme is along side other American clients of Mossack Fonseca, many of whom have criminal records. Most seem to have been found guilty of financial crimes.

Even national governments have created shell companies. Such is the case for the African nation of Ghana, which created a shell corporation for, among other things, its tourism bureau. While the activities in it are not yet known, if it went through MoFon, then we will find out.

This all happened because the hacker, known as John Doe, was able to take advantage of an insecure out-of-date SSL v2 protocol. It turned out that the Firm was using an out of date version of Drupal content management system. This basically means, MoneyCompliance is more secure than the lae firm creating secretive legal entities.

John Doe seems unhappy that governments are not trying to fix inequality. Goes to show how hackers cannot control the story.
