If you had to Distribute something Sensitive over the Internet, how would u do it ?

Just been rewatching 24 Season 8 where Jack has a video file of govt conspiracy etc etc,

If you say had a clear video file which could bring down the Trump administration and you had to upload it to the internet, how would you approach this task knowing it would get taken down from most popular sites rather quickly ?

How would you get it to that viral point where there would just be too many copies out there for anyone to contain ?

NYT Times allows you to send them tips encrypted using WhatsApp or Signal. They also have an option for a SecureDrop via Tor.

Remember, whoever leaked Trump's 1040 form printed it out and put it in a mailbox, not dropbox.

The consensus is that Trump leaked that himself, as it's one of his only tax returns that shows he payed something and showed no Russian connections.

You post it everywhere you can. Repost everywhere (comments sections, etc. etc.). Diversify (Live Leak, Youtube, Vimeo, etc.). Deliver physical copies to all the news outlets. 4Chan. Dark web marketplaces.

If it's a real story (like the pee pee tapes), I'd imagine you can also get incredible legal backing from a place like New York Times.

Post it in the political film forum. Everything there goes viral.

The problem with end-to-end encryption apps like WhatsApp is that yes, your data is nicely encrypted, but the record of the connection still exists (and is obtainable via legal process if the software company is domestic, which WhatsApp is). Plus, the contents of the communication is readily accessible from either physical endpoint. So for something this sensitive, I would definitely not want to use my own device to send it.

Tor is better, but the combination of Tor and a VPN together is pretty damn close to bulletproof, especially for a one-off communication like this.

I agree with those who said if you really want to be secure, avoid networking the data anywhere. Put it on an encrypted flash drive or physical media and mail or have it hand delivered by someone trusted other than yourself.

Yeah, he never said "while staying anonymous," so why wouldn't you just go this route? Seems like a no-brainer without that stipulation.
