Much of Anders Behring Breivik's 1,500-page manifesto was plagiarized from the writings of Ted Kaczynski, which led one technology expert to wonder whether Breivik also copied the Unabomber's penchant for secret codes. So he decided to investigate, reports the Telegraph, focusing in particular on 46 Internet links in the manifesto that are apparently broken. They don't lead to any websites, and don't work on so-called "darknets," but seem to contain a pattern. "I suddenly saw that some of the work I had been doing suggested they could be GPS coordinates," he says.
That first "coordinate," when entered into Google Maps, pointed to a train station in Liverpool. Others corresponded to major landmarks around Europe. ”It could just be a hoax or part of his PR strategy,” he says, ”but we need to investigate this document.” The findings have been reported to police, and a group of 300 people, including encryption experts, are now involved in the analysis.
