New leaks confirm it was the CIA posing as ‘Russian hackers’ that released secrets. The coding done by CIA agents was criminal in that they wanted to blame an innocent party and thus, create war conditions. It is terribly irresponsible in particular, to manufacture fake attacks that supposedly come from a NUCEAR POWER.
Why? Well, this could easily start WWIII which would annihilate Japan, Europe and severely damage the US West and East coasts which is where the Democrats hoped to have power.
The CIA’s Remote Devices Branch’s UMBRAGE group collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques ‘stolen’ from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation.
It is well known, a great way to start a war is to say, assassinate someone really big. The other is to have a fake attack and sink, say, a ship, or shoot down a plane, etc. Border crossings in disguise has been used more than once. The CIA was using modern versions of these older excuses for war.
With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the “fingerprints” of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.
There is a name for this: WAR CRIMES. Yes, it is utterly illegal. The US endorsed this during the Nüremberg Trials, for example. One cannot engineer a fake attack like Hitler did to Poland to launch WWII, for example. He pretended Poland crossed the German frontier in 1939.
UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques.
Speaking in a livestream on Thursday, Assange announced that WikiLeaks will give tech companies access to the methods used by the CIA in its hacking operations. Assange then said that after the revelation, an anti-virus expert approached WikiLeaks to say that attacks previously blamed on Russia, China and Iran have now been pinned on the CIA.
HAHAHA. Assange is forcing them to admit, they already do know what is going on and have been lying to customers about their involvement in the CIA messing around with our computers.
“The technology is designed to be unaccountable, it’s designed to be untraceable, it’s designed to hide itself. It’s designed to throw off people looking to see where there are fingerprints that might demonstrate who authored that technology,” Assange explained.
The CIA, Obama, the media giants all CONSPIRED to lie about this during the last three months. Even as the truth flows freely thanks to Wikileaks, they continue conspiring to lie about everything. I don’t see Congress or the Democrats stopping with the anti-Putin lying.
“We have quite a lot more material that talks about these attempts to throw off attribution to discover who is actually behind a particular cyberattack,” the Australian said, hinting at further revelations to come in future ‘Vault 7’ WikiLeaks releases.
I wonder when the government shielding Assange will be overthrown. Ecuador has been meddled with in the past. I am expecting the CIA to do something really nasty now, don’t be shocked to hear of a military coup there.
“Already an anti-virus expert has come forward to say that sophisticated malware that he had attributed to a state, either Iran, China or Russia, now he believes is from the CIA because the type of attack system it uses corresponds directly to a description we published of that attack system.”
“And it’s rare enough that it seems unlikely that it would be independently discovered, unless of course China has already gotten hold of these parts of the CIA arsenal and that China is using them to pretend to be the CIA.”
Now why would China want WWIII on its doorstep? Nope. China is flexing its own arms and is disputing territory directly with the US, not Putin’s Russia. China doesn’t want an angry Russia on its back door hammering away!
Anyone with any strategic training could see easily that China wants a quiet border along their very, very extensive border with Russia: this is where ALL the successful invasions of China arose in their long, long history! They benefit if Russia is their good friend!
During the Cold War, the Communist Chinese went crazy and actually provoked a flurry of fighting along that border when Kennedy was President. Both countries patched that up quickly and the generals responsible in China were punished.
The WikiLeaks founder also warned that because the technology hides its origin its completely open to being abused without consequences.
“There’s absolutely nothing to stop a random CIA officer, or contractor, or liaison agent working for the British, using that technology against whoever they like for whatever reasons they like,” he warned.
It is now certain that Assange told tech companies that he would share hacking information so they can fix vulnerabilities that were exploited by the CIA when they raided computer systems for information.
The Financial Times reported Thursday that several tech companies questioned by the outlet had not expressed desire to cooperate with the whistleblower on the ground of moral or legal barriers of dealing with classified information.
‘Morals’? HAHAHA. A great excuse. Legal barriers: these are set up by Congress and Congress can fix this by punishing the CIA for cooking up fake cyber attacks that might start WWIII. It is literally life and death. The CIA actions were not only utterly illegal but amoral and worse: stupid.
According to the news outlet, its interlocutors from the Silicon Valley have assumed that Assange tried to improve his own reputation through cooperation with tech giants.
Assange knows he will never, ever be forgiven for telling the truth about anything. That’s life.
At the same time several companies said that they could change their stance and start cooperation with WikiLeaks if more information would be revealed by the whistleblowers, the newspaper added.
That is, if the people who raided the CIA secret computer systems turn themselves in. Nope. I don’t see that happening.
The files, released by WikiLeaks show that CIA seemed to have devised or collected techniques to hack into Mac OS X, Windows, Linux computer operating systems as well as Android and iOS used on mobile phones. The CIA was also said to have developed a technique that could target smart TV sets, making them record audio and send it to CIA servers.
The (Democratic) party’s poor showing in the Suffolk (NY) poll is even more significant when considering that the sample of 1,000 registered voters included 352 Democrats, 330 Republicans and 318 independents.
Broken down by party affiliation, Trump’s approval rating is much higher among Republicans (88 percent) and is higher than disapproval among independents by 2 percentage points. More Democrats (11 percent) approve of Trump than Republicans disapprove (8 percent).
Which is a net gain for Trump.
Slightly fewer Democrats (7 percent) and Republicans (86 percent) have a favorable opinion of Trump personally, with independents holding steady at 44 percent.
A whopping 93 percent of Republicans, 61 percent of independents, and even 15 percent of Democrats have an unfavorable view of Hillary Clinton, while slightly more independents (57 percent) disapprove of Democrats than of Republicans (51 percent).
HAHAHA. She and her hysterical female whiners can’t believe how unpopular they are.
While the respondents mostly disagreed (59 percent) with Trump’s description of journalists as “enemies of the people,” the majority of Republicans (78 percent) and independents (56 percent) had an unfavorable view of the media, along with 19 percent of Democrats.
The media wins the booby prize here. Continuous lying, being obnoxious, attacking young reporters who belong to alternative media, messing with elections by cheating…ahem, they all have taken a huge, gigantic hit and what have they learned?
Do more crap! HAHAHA. The Ministry of Truth is very successful here.
