While the tech website GadgetZZ did not publish information about a CD they received at their Swedish Post office Box until last week, they actually received it months ago.
The CD apparently contains hidden clues to some type of puzzle and starts off with a man wearing a mask similiar to those worn by "plague doctors" in Europe back in the 17th century during the Bubonic Plague outbreak.
After publishing a video of what was contained on the CD and asking their readers to help decode it, some very disturbing things were found by keen-eyed observers, one of which was a Reddit user that decided to run it the sound through a spectrogram which brought out a message of "You are already dead." - Shown below

[MAJOR UPDATE] Stefan Stanford downloaded a spectrograph and ran the video through it, we have made a decision to not create a video of the images hidden within the sounds to show the entire thing here at ANP........ the images do show the screen grab from above, but after that there are sickening graphic images of cut up bodies, and further images of people being tortured, as well as the words "we are the anti-virus."
By the second update as readers continued to try to decode the images, sounds and content of the video made from the CD, one stated "“E2-E3 D1-F3 F1-C4 F3xF7” below and to their left at 1:37. This is a four-move checkmate in chess if that helps at all."
By the third update, the GadgetZZ author asserts "this is where it starts to get seriously creepy."
Yeah this is creepy… 33 38 2e 38 39 37 37 30 39 2c 2d 37 37 2e 30 33 36 35 34 33 Coded GPS coordinates: 38.897709,-77.036543 The White House, W Executive Ave NW, Washington, DC 20502
But the sickest part is that when decoding images from the sound, disturbing images where uncovered.. Basically what looks like women being tortured, or something.. That’s obviously NSFW, so I won’t post it, but you can find it easily if you look around a bit.
Now there are so many theories about this. Some say Illuminati, some say serial killer or even a threat directed at me. Perhaps, perhaps not, but I am highly skeptical. It makes sense to send it to me if it’s an elaborate joke or experiment, but if it were a serious threat I doubt it would be sent to a tech blog.
I highlighted some of the details but there is more on this at the GadgetZZ website.
Interestingly, after researching more GadgetZZ found out the following (Stated in the 4th update):
It seems the first place this was posted to has been found. A post on the ‘paranormal’ board on the imageboard 4chan. This was one the 9th of May.
Possibly that was the person who made it, but the post says that the CD was found on a park bench. Either way, it makes me wonder even more how it ended up in my mail.
Whatever this is meant as, a warning, a threat or a sick joke, a lot of time and effort went into the making of this.
[Update] In August 2014, an ISIS "laptop of doom" was recovered with files holding documents on turning the bubonic plague" into a weapon.... which makes the outfit of the person in the video even more ominous if we take this as a direct biological threat.
