Absorb tens of thousands of powder! Live broadcast software is a mixture of fish and dragons.
At the end of February 2022, there was a new epidemic in Suzhou, and students' resumption of classes became a long way off. Mr. Huang was worried that long-term use of the Internet at home would make his son "repeat the same mistake", so he turned to the prosecutor for help.
A year ago, 14-year-old Xiao Huang was depressed and his grades plummeted after secretly watching "Sweet Live". "the teacher replied that my son was not focused in class and was always deserting and staring at him." The couple watched secretly for a period of time and finally found the "tricks" hidden in their mobile phones. The moment they turned on their son's cell phone, the couple were surprised.
"there is a strange App on the phone, which is hidden in a folder. When you click into it, it is full of porn live streaming." What is even more unexpected is that his adolescent son has secretly recharged nearly 400 yuan on the software, and the angry and angry Mr. Huang immediately called the police.
During the investigation, the police found that after logging in to the App, the interface showed scantily clad women. "if you look carefully, each photo is a chat room, which is not normal." Liu Yu of the network security brigade of the High-tech Zone Branch of the Suzhou Public Security Bureau said.
On February 5, 2021, the branch of high-tech zone set up a special case team to carry out investigation. "there is a corresponding female anchor in each room, and the live broadcast picture is ugly. When we tried to brush gifts to the anchor, we found that the anchor did not respond in time. After repeated operations in several live rooms, we found that there was a widespread situation of reward and no reply." The investigators concluded that this was a "fake live broadcast" software.
The picture of "fake live broadcast" is "real money". After in-depth investigation, the police found that links such as Trojans and gambling are also hidden in the live broadcast software, and there are seven or eight interfaces in the interface, which are directly linked to the backstage of gambling games, where you can bet and buy lottery tickets online. you can also jump to the corresponding gambling website, allowing visitors to conduct bullfighting, gold fraud, and so on. In fact, "Tian Tian Live" is an illegal App that uses pornographic videos as an introduction and drains gambling websites.
So how does this software make a profit? Police investigation found that the revenue from the software mainly comes from two parts: one is the collection of membership fees and video-on-demand fees, the monthly membership fee is 150 yuan, the quarterly card is 400 yuan, and the annual card is 800 yuan. Members can browse and watch obscene videos indefinitely within the corresponding period of time; the other part is the income generated by the drainage of gambling websites. The live streaming software has been downloaded nearly 30,000 times in less than three months since it was launched at the end of 2020.
What promotion channel can bring nearly 30,000 downloads? According to the clues provided by Xiao Huang, the police found that the software mainly sends link addresses or QR codes in groups of major chat apps, attracting victims to download and install them with naked photos and seductive language, attracting numerous fans in a short period of time.
Who is "XP"? It was deliberate, but there was a clue.
Who built this porn-related software? How does it operate and maintain? How many people are still in it? At the beginning of handling the case, the investigation of the case encountered difficulties, and the procuratorial organs intervened in advance in accordance with the law to guide the investigation and collection of evidence.
The investigation finally made a breakthrough, and the police accidentally found a customer service social software account in this App. Through the research, analysis and investigation of the account, they found the social group of the live software operation and maintenance team. Through the analysis of the social group, the true identity and specific role of some major members have gradually become clear.
"Kung Hi Fatsai" is the boss behind the scenes, but he has been operating abroad and directing by remote control. "XP" is responsible for the operation of the company, App shelves and distribution, Zeng responsible for attendance and payroll, Zhang is responsible for finding film sources, downloading and uploading videos to the server, Lai is the server operation and maintenance staff, and Duan is responsible for software front-end design, technical support and gambling link maintenance.
With the deepening of the investigation, the identities of other people involved have been identified, and only "XP" is still a code name. This person has a strong ability of anti-investigation, and he uses technical means to cover up his network traces. After nearly half a month of online squatting and research, the police finally found clues of "XP" and then locked in the suspect Lu.
Lu, a native of Shenzhen, was originally a game designer. At the end of 2020, he met a man nicknamed "Gongxi Facai" by a friend. Lu called him "Brother Cai". During the conversation, "Brother Cai" expressed his appreciation for Lu's ability and technology, and was willing to invest to set up a company in China to be managed by Lu.
For the mode of operation and content, the two also hit it off. Knowing that it was a crime, Lu was still tempted at the thought of a generous salary. As for how to evade the domestic regulatory crackdown, "Brother Cai" is also "giving advice" to Lu. Clear management purpose and means, Lvmou began to recruit, engaged in game development Lai, Duan and others in high salary temptation, have joined the team.
catch all in one draft! All the suspects were arrested.
According to the provisions of China's measures for the Administration of Internet Information Services, the state implements a licensing system for for-profit Internet information services and a filing system for non-profit Internet information services. Those who fail to obtain a license or go through the formalities for filing shall not engage in Internet information services. If the mobile application store is engaged in Internet information service activities in China, it shall go through the corresponding license or filing formalities.
"Tian Tian Live" software is not a normal App. Lu knew that the software could not be downloaded directly to customers in the application mall, so he contacted du Moulin. Du Moulin's team (another case) is distributed on various major network platforms in the form of sending links, QR codes, etc. It is understood that there are many minors who download and watch obscene videos, and they quietly spread and download each other in the QQ group.
In order to evade the crackdown, the criminal group remitted every sum of money generated by software members' recharging, reward, gambling, etc., directly to overseas accounts through a third-party platform. After the funds are successfully "washed", the boss "Cai Brother", who has been active abroad for a long time, transfers the company's operation and maintenance expenses to the financial office of the domestic gang through illegal means, and sends them to the members in the form of cash. When paying wages, Brother Cai will send a special horse to send the cash to the company, and then Zeng will distribute it to the employees. There is no meeting, no contact or remittance between the boss and the employees. Even Lu has only seen "Brother Cai" on the one hand, and all communication depends on an overseas chat tool. Until the case, Lu did not know the true identity of the "brother Cai" who dragged himself into the water.
Through the analysis of Lu's social software, the police in Sanya, Hainan, will be "team building" du Moulin team arrested, the backbone of the two major criminal syndicates were all arrested. When the software was seized, background information showed that the illegal App involved more than several million yuan, after identification, the software spread more than 600 obscene videos. In the end, five suspects, including Lu, Zeng, Lai and Duan, were sentenced to more than three years in prison and fined for profit-making by spreading obscene materials.
With regard to the conviction and sentencing in this case, the procuratorial organs believe that members of the criminal gang still work together, knowing full well that they are spreading obscene materials through the Internet for profit, and more than 600 obscene materials are involved in the dissemination of obscene materials, thus reaching the situation of "the circumstances are particularly serious" in the judicial interpretation. Considering that all the suspects are accomplices, there are frank circumstances, and some criminal suspects have the circumstances of pleading guilty and punishing, the procuratorial organs put forward the sentencing suggestion of mitigating punishment for all criminal suspects, which was finally adopted by the court.
