Exactly, apparently liberals think Russians are herp-derps when it comes to hacking.

Unfortunately the glaring herp-derps are libs themselves in buying hook line and sinker into anything the media says and every circumstantial thing that may favor them, even though they were exposed to evidence that the 3 letter agencies employ those tactics.

Scary...that is to think about how many liberal voter there are.

And apparently so-called "conservatives" think that the Russians are incapable of playing the same double bluff games as the Americans. When it looked like the NSA hacked some voting machines, the resident experts here averred that it was impossible to spoof a hack and retrieve information. Now that it appears that Russians hacked the CIA as well as the DNC, it is now child's play for the American intelligence agencies to spoof a hack. Gotta love the consistency of online "experts."

Prayers for Mr Assange today - hopefully Ecuador will get a new president who will stand up against corruption and wrongdoing in the world, and asylum is continued. Godbless

You're delusional. I don't read ATS very often because of idiotic statements made by complete fools. It's sad that this site is attracting people like you. It's so obvious Russia had nothing to do with this and the people who continually push that they did are the same people who are ruining this world.

True, but remember that the system is not broken, it was built this way.
A few years back I thought we might have crossed the line when the outcome became irreversible, today I claim with certainty, we are well passed the point of no return and heading for a huge downfall in almost every aspect of well being and the society. We once thought that World was not good, like in the 90s, But now that seems like a dream. We are so doomed one might consider suicide being an option to end this nonsense, cuz there is literally nothing left to fight for. TPTB won.

ATS also became frustrating to read as the only topics that get attention are Trump related, or maybe some religion promoted hatred or just nonsense about fake "terror attacks".

We do not strive for the stars anymore. We are done... also iťs useless to complain about that, it gets worse every day.

Do you have anything to contribute to the conversation beside ad hominem attacks? Still, thank you for illustrating how Russia uses trolls to undercut reasoned debate.

ETA: You are, of course, welcome to stop visiting this site if some members refuse to reinforce your personal beliefs.

Leaks?

Before he became President, there was information doing the rounds, legitimate information that expressed and detailed in exacting fashion, the many reasons why Trump was never fit to lead a conga line, leave alone a nation. The hot mic recording (which, regardless of opinions to the contrary from the gutter dwellers in the world, SHOULD have been the bullet that put the presidency beyond his reach), the history of his business practices (which ARE a solid indicator of his methodology as a man, his lack of moral fortitude and an indicator of just how poor of a resource manager he actually is).

These were not LEAKS, because they did not come by way of an intelligence service or a clandestine operation of any kind. They were simply the result of weaponised, but albeit legitimate journalism. These are things that anyone could have found out, if they had been willing to bother to do so, and also things that many people voting in the election ought to REMEMBER, because his failures are common knowledge in places affected by them, and to those living near to those who lost out to one of his dodgy investments, or to one of the property developments that he put his name on, despite them being bound for failure from the get go, costing investors their life savings.

Anyone could have found out, and many people if they were being honest with themselves, would have remembered, that Trump has been in and out of court more times than a bailiff with ADHD and a stimulant abuse problem, that he uses his money and access to lawyers, to bully those he has harmed into silence, that he is essentially a gangster without an army, the sort of man who does with paper what many have to resort to a bullet to resolve. He is a disgusting individual, with a disgusting empire, and far from being a successful man, has squandered a great deal of his fortune on compensating for the size of his "hands". He is a morally defunct, mentally deficient con artist and little else besides, and again, this is a truth one could come to after even the most perfunctory examination of his character over the years.

This required no leaks to discover, this required no special access, no dirty tricks, no secret recording devices or clever manipulation of a records clerk to uncover. It is simply the conclusion than any reasonable, compassionate, decent and moral person would come to, upon examining the slightest bit of his history and behaviour.

It could be the work of a mole, working as a subcontractor, so, no, the Russians are not ruled out.

Exactly. The people who starred you need to re-read what you said. No one obtained classified information about Trump and released it to WikiLeaks. Remember, we now know there was a dossier compiled but it was not used. We now know that intelligence agencies may have been watching Trump's associates, but what they found was not leaked. This suggests that the leaks that did happen were tactical in nature, and favored Trump over Clinton. That is all anyone has been saying.

I agree that anyone paying attention could see that Trump was completely unsuitable for high office. The Clinton campaign relied on this, yet lost.

I diagnosed your psychosis as of mid december :

Your neo-McCarthyism has reached pathological levels.


4 months later, you are stuck in the denial phase.

Do you need to erase of your mind the content of the OP : the ability for the US to frame anyone (with the exemple provided : RUSSIA of couse !) with their stolen malware.
I can't wait for AV companies to come of with cross-analysis between the Marble framework and their existing virus signature files in order to have a better view of what percentage of Viruses were actually released in the wild thanks to US taxpayers money for the sole promotion of US (or is it DNC) hegemony.

Crowdstrike removed his previous antirussian report because they try to save their credibility ... (head in the sand).
The CIA itself says its insiders leaks. NO ! DJW knows the CIA better than the previous director what do you imagine ! They must be Russians, they can only be Russian, they HAVE to be Russian otherwise it is not Russia ... (head in the sand).
The US has the biggest collection of election tampering, political ingerence in the world ... STFU you anti-american ! ... It's Russia who must have done it, can't you understand (head in the sand).

Wikileaks releases "Grasshoper" CIA malware :

Twitter




Grasshopper
7 April, 2017
Today, April 7th 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 "Grasshopper" -- 27 documents from the CIA's Grasshopper framework, a platform used to build customized malware payloads for Microsoft Windows operating systems.

Grasshopper is provided with a variety of modules that can be used by a CIA operator as blocks to construct a customized implant that will behave differently, for example maintaining persistence on the computer differently, depending on what particular features or capabilities are selected in the process of building the bundle. Additionally, Grasshopper provides a very flexible language to define rules that are used to "perform a pre-installation survey of the target device, assuring that the payload will only [be] installed if the target has the right configuration". Through this grammar CIA operators are able to build from very simple to very complex logic used to determine, for example, if the target device is running a specific version of Microsoft Windows, or if a particular Antivirus product is running or not.

Grasshopper allows tools to be installed using a variety of persistence mechanisms and modified using a variety of extensions (like encryption). The requirement list of the Automated Implant Branch (AIB) for Grasshopper puts special attention on PSP avoidance, so that any Personal Security Products like 'MS Security Essentials', 'Rising', 'Symantec Endpoint' or 'Kaspersky IS' on target machines do not detect Grasshopper elements.

One of the persistence mechanisms used by the CIA here is 'Stolen Goods' - whose "components were taken from malware known as Carberp, a suspected Russian organized crime rootkit." confirming the recycling of malware found on the Internet by the CIA. "The source of Carberp was published online, and has allowed AED/RDB to easily steal components as needed from the malware.". While the CIA claims that "[most] of Carberp was not used in Stolen Goods" they do acknowledge that "[the] persistence method, and parts of the installer, were taken and modified to fit our needs", providing a further example of reuse of portions of publicly available malware by the CIA, as observed in their analysis of leaked material from the italian company "HackingTeam".

The documents WikiLeaks publishes today provide an insights into the process of building modern espionage tools and insights into how the CIA maintains persistence over infected Microsoft Windows computers, providing directions for those seeking to defend their systems to identify any existing compromise

Wikileaks releases 'Hive', CIA virus control system.


Today, April 14th 2017, WikiLeaks publishes six documents from the CIA's HIVE project created by its "Embedded Development Branch" (EDB).

HIVE is a back-end infrastructure malware with a public-facing HTTPS interface which is used by CIA implants to transfer exfiltrated information from target machines to the CIA and to receive commands from its operators to execute specific tasks on the targets. HIVE is used across multiple malware implants and CIA operations. The public HTTPS interface utilizes unsuspicious-looking cover domains to hide its presence.

Anti-Virus companies and forensic experts have noticed that some possible state-actor malware used such kind of back-end infrastructure by analyzing the communication behaviour of these specific implants, but were unable to attribute the back-end (and therefore the implant itself) to operations run by the CIA. In a recent blog post by Symantec, that was able to attribute the "Longhorn" activities to the CIA based on the Vault 7, such back-end infrastructure is described:

For C&C servers, Longhorn typically configures a specific domain and IP address combination per target. The domains appear to be registered by the attackers; however they use privacy services to hide their real identity. The IP addresses are typically owned by legitimate companies offering virtual private server (VPS) or webhosting services. The malware communicates with C&C servers over HTTPS using a custom underlying cryptographic protocol to protect communications from identification.
The documents from this publication might further enable anti-malware researchers and forensic experts to analyse this kind of communication between malware implants and back-end servers used in previous illegal activities.

“It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is, a non-state hostile intelligence service, often abetted by state actors like Russia,” Pompeo told the audience.


The only source you believe, Joke.
