Many years ago I was on a train in the north of England and got chatting to a fellow passenger. He claimed to work for an American government intelligence department and was in the UK to meet with managers at various online music streaming companies, regarding the use of their systems to transmit messages to terrorist organizations. Now the guy seemed to know his computer science, and I’ve seen enough Four Lions know that Club Penguin a be used to pass on messages. The idea was that you could encode messages in playlists by picking songs with certain names.
Whether he was talking bullshit, it made you wonder how on earth you can hope to intercept this stuff given the different ways you could communicate online and encrypt the messages. It sounded plausible. Much like how you can create code using page/word/letter numbers from a specific book – you could do the same with just a simple song playlist on Spotify. Then again, once you capture one of such a group and get to know their codes, it’s possible. So you’re saying when I get booted from a server for no reason.
