Even Before The Shameful Winter Genocide Games Have Begun There Are Cyber Security Issues

According to a story by The Globe And Mail on January 18th, 2022, it talks about the Beijing Winter Olympic Games and a security flaw in a smartphone application that’s required for athletes and team officials attending the 2022 Beijing Olympics but leaves users at risk of having their calls and data intercepted, a Toronto cybersecurity watchdog has found.

The University of Toronto’s non-profit Citizen Lab analyzed My 2022, a software program that offers a suite of functions, including not only the ability to submit health information but also real-time chat, voice-audio chat, file transfers, and news and weather updates. Beijing Olympics organisers require all participants to use the app, which is the property of a Chinese, state-owned company.

The application “has a simple but devastating flaw where encryption protecting users’ voice audio and file transfers can be sidestepped” with little effort, so everyone who is surprised that the communist Chinese state-owned app has security flaws raise your hand…. exactly. How can any sane athlete actually decide to go to China in the middle of a devastating CCP virus pandemic and with all the human rights violations, it seems that a blood-soaked medal is worth more than their morals and their dignity.

Not only should the Beijing Olympics be totally boycotted but China should be held responsible not only for killing millions of people worldwide due to their release of the CCP Covid-19 virus but also for the organ harvesting from the Falun Gong practitioners and the violations of the human rights of millions of Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang mainland China.

I understand all the long hard years of training for the Winter Olympics I really do, but surely everyone can see that these particular games are not normal, not the usual, not held in a democratic country, but held in a totalitarian dictatorship where you can be imprisoned and killed for disagreeing with any government official.

After all that has been said and done, it will absolutely amaze me if any athlete will go as by going they are condoning the brutal things that occur on a daily basis, I would say to them all wait for another sporting event, world games, European games, because by doing that you will send a signal that it is not alright to treat people the way that the authoritarian dictatorship treats their people and in fact anyone that disagrees with them. The athletes are risking their lives and their morality for an opportunity to win a piece of metal to put around their neck.
