Well, this is going to be a game changer! Ukrainian Member of
Parliament Anton Gerashchenko, a former advisor to Ukraine's interior
minister reports that A "Profexor" was paid to write
a custom version of his hacking tool without knowing what
it would be used for.

This report is breaking at about the same time that Ukraine
Is reporting they have opened a criminal investigation
into DNC/Clinton collusion with Ukraine in the 2016 US Elections.



A Ukrainian malware author who built the PAS Web shell—a PHP-based implant used to execute commands remotely on hacked systems—has turned himself in to Ukrainian authorities. He has been cooperating with the Federal Bureau of Investigation's probe into the apparent Russian hacking of the Democratic National Committee. The information provided by "Profexor" to Ukrainian investigators and the FBI reveals, in part, how hackers (who were apparently coordinated by a Russian intelligence agency) used a combination of purpose-built and community tools as part of what researchers have labeled as the threat group "APT 28," also known as "Fancy Bear."

Profexor " has not been charged in Ukraine, as he didn't use his remote access tool himself for malicious purposes. He did offer a version of the remote access tool for free on his member-only website, but he also built custom versions and provided training for pay. One of his customers was someone who used the tool in connection with malware connected to Fancy Bear to establish a backdoor into the DNC's network.

This is potentially huge.

Funny, Ukraine keeps popping up, makes one wonder does it not?

The issue here is the download speeds. The speeds are not capable with remote access, let aloe remote access international.

What I find curious is how this article comes out shortly after the report published by VIPS. So once again the left changes the narrative to malware in order to maintain the russia hack bs.

It is beginning to appear that the "Russia" narrative was built
around the real story as cover.

Ukraine colluded with the DNC to undermine Trump
during the election!

Is it possible he gave to program to someone who
used it locally?

I suppose the other option could be they found a patsy?

So much back & forth b.s. and deflection. The mix is being added to daily but never with any real substance.

Suits multiple agendas, but none bigger than the "Divide and distract."

I might care more if indisputable and relevant facts ever come to light.

Yes, this on the heels (or perhaps before) the JA story. Two very conflicting narratives.

If you have access you dont need anything to assist. You have it all at your fingertips. A malware program would just slow you down
Question answered.

So this is guy wrote the software that's available for download on the darknet? Like couldn't someone else have just used a copy?

Seems to me like they just arrested the guy for writing the software, maybe trying to pin the hack onto him to stretch out the investigation.

Deep state is probably trying to give him the same sweet deal they tried to give guccifer.

Ok, next question. Is it possible he wrote it for
someone inside the DNC?

The creator said he had no idea what it would be used for. Also the person / persons he created it for are never named. One would think if you create something thats then used in the commission of a crime and you go to law enforcement to proclaim your innocence you are going to have to give the names of the people you made it for.

Anything is possible. If this DNC employee did not have access. Yet , that would have meant that whoever this person gave it to did have access and would install it. Programs have to be installed.
It could have been a hack and a shadow install , I cant say.
But if the alleged download speed is what is being said , it would almost have to be direct connect. Key , USB drive most likely . Something along the lines of a SAS or SATA 3 USB drive.
I hope this answers your question .

This report indicates that it was Hillary Clinton's
candidacy the hacker was backing!

My thoughts are that these two separate reports are connected,
but as always I am open to correction.

Not surprising .They are in a catch 22 situation . I am sure Muller sent the word out to delay and muddy it up a bit . That rope must be getting a wee bit tight I think .

Could be, the top FBI investigator was just sent
to the desk, now off of the Russia Probe.

Sense tells me they could all be tied together.

I still keep an open mind as to who helped who's campaign .The way the Democrats have been pitching a hissy fit and stirring up trouble since the election , that is circumstantial evidence against them in my book.
