    Theft: The Chinese are the biggest thieves of U.S. technology, according to a new report, stealing hundreds of billions worth of data a year. The report by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies warns Chinese cyber espionage is the “single greatest threat to U.S. technology,” draining more than $300 billion a year from the economy.

    A Chinese-owned company operating in the Washington, D.C. area hacked Hillary Clinton's private email server, gaining real-time access to her emails during her term as U.S. secretary of state. The Daily Caller reported this bombshell, corroborated by two sources. One might quibble about unnamed sources, but this is the new standard in journalism. CNN, NBC, the N.Y. Times, and the rest of the fakestream media regularly rely on anonymous sources for their anti-Trump stories. Apparently, the Chinese wrote code that they embedded into Clinton's home server in her Chappaqua home, which conveniently sent a copy of all of her emails...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - China killed or imprisoned 18 to 20 CIA sources from 2010 to 2012, hobbling U.S. spying operations in a massive intelligence breach whose origin has not been identified, the New York Times reported on Saturday. Investigators remain divided over whether there was a spy within the Central Intelligence Agency who betrayed the sources or whether the Chinese hacked the CIA's covert communications system, the newspaper reported, citing current and former U.S. officials.
  • That time CHINA hacked all of Hillary Clinton’s emails and the FBI…did nothing

    Major Breach: Anyone who is honest about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as secretary of state knows that the former U.S. senator and first lady set it up so she could operate free from government recordkeeping requirements and transparency laws. Not content to merely create a secret email address using a commercial email platform like Google, Hillary wanted her own separate, controllable operation. Too bad she didn’t put as much effort into protecting our country as she did in trying to be a sneaky criminal.

    It the latest example of fake news it turns out that all the recent hype in much of the mainstream media about teens being able to hack state election systems were untrue. The details of what actually happened were revealed in a CNBC article on Friday by Lilia Chang, "No, a teen did not hack a state election."  Among the MSM outlets hyping the teenage hacker story were Politico Magazine and CNN. Of course, once it was revealed that no such hacking really took place they immediately issued corrections to their original fables... I kid! As of this writing no...

    The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has notified the FBI of what it believes to be an attempt to hack into its voter database, CNN reported Wednesday. A Democratic source told the network that the organization received an alert early Tuesday that a fake login site had been created to try and obtain usernames and passwords from those seeking to access the database. The alert was reportedly issued by the cloud service provider for the database and the San Francisco-based security firm Lookout. The fake pages were designed to look like the site used by Democratic officials and candidates across the...

In a confidential alert on Friday, America's Federal Bureau of Investigation told international banks that criminals are plotting a concerted global malware attack on cash machines in the next few days.  The FBI issued a warning about a highly choreographed fraud scheme known as an ATM "jackpotting", in which crooks hack a bank or payment card processor and use cloned cards at cash machines around the world to...

    North Korea is rapidly amassing capabilities with arguably greater destructive potential than nuclear or ballistic missiles. Pyongyang’s elaborate licit and illicit financial networks grow more sophisticated and its army of cyber warriors grows more adept with each passing day, posing fearsome threats to Northeast Asia, the United States, and the entire international system. Meanwhile, behind a veil of nuclear belligerence, the ruling Kim family has been quietly and painstakingly preparing to fight the next war: a “Secret War” waged not with guns and bullets, but with information and network access. Former NSA deputy director Chris Inglis describes cyber as a...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) New analysis of malware campaigns suggests that North Korean hackers may have re-used malware and computer infrastructure, leaving a trail which increasingly allow incidents to be traced back to them. Examination of malware believed to be associated with North Korean cyber operations found the same code is often re-used in multiple attacks -- and increasing the confidence that a string of campaigns over the last decade have been the work of the hackers in the country. The joint research by security firms McAfee and Intezer reveals new connections between attacks believed to be the work of North Korea, a...

    We asked a number of government spooks and hackers and contractors who have worked for the FBI and other spooky federal agencies to examine Robert Mueller’s latest indictments of 12 alleged Russian “operatives.” Their conclusion? HOAX. Mueller’s team fabricated evidence. And a whole lot of evidence. What kind of evidence? It’s all right here. Whether you understand IT or not, the evidence Mueller claims points to Russia actually also points to India, Pakistan and of course China. Funny though, Mueller never mentions that in his indictment. Wonder why? President Trump has called it a witch hunt. And a number of...

    The only way to ensure the integrity of our elections is a return to paper ballots, a "back to the future" scenario that somehow doesn't seem to excite many Democrats.  They would rather wail about "Russia hacking the election" to delegitimize President Trump, even though Rod Rosenstein recently assured us that not one vote was changed. The fact that no electronic voting system can be reliably protected against hackers was once again demonstrated this weekend at "Defcon," a computer gathering in Las Vegas. Defcon last year (via CBS screen grab).Hackers there took on the challenge of hacking into 30 voting machines...

    (snip) -- There is another echelon of society that you and I may never experience. It is reserved for the unhealthily wealthy who have long abandoned the concept of consequences. And, without consequences, these bizarre, left-leaning cretins of depravity have turned to sickening and abhorrent behavior that is just now finding exposure in the media. Such is the case with deplorable Hollywood sex cult NXIVM, whose leadership has found themselves targeted once again this week. Federal agents on Tuesday arrested NXIVM co-founder Nancy Salzman, her daughter Lauren Salzman and longtime bookkeeper Kathy Russell. Clare Bronfman, the longtime operations director for...

"Earlier this year, we did discover that a fake Microsoft domain had been established as the landing page for phishing attacks," Tom Burt, Microsoft's vice president for security and trust, said at the Aspen Security Forum. "And we saw metadata that suggested those phishing attacks were being directed at three candidates who are all standing for election in the midterm elections," he added.

    The Russia conspiracy theory hinges on the single creaky claim that the Democratic National Committee hacks were a Russian plot to elect Trump. The theory and all its illegitimate stepchildren, including Robert Mueller and his infinitely expanding corps of prosecutors, lives or dies by the DNC hacks. Trying to elect Trump by releasing damaging insider information from the DNC never made any sense. The DNC was already a dysfunctional organization that was being run by the Clinton campaign. Undermining its leadership had little impact on the election, but a great deal on control of the DNC. There has never been...

    President Donald Trump’s refusal to rehash allegations of Kremlin-backed interference in the 2016 presidential election during a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday incensed Democrat lawmakers and left wing media pundits. Standing alongside Putin, President Trump steered clear of confrontation with the Russian, while questioning U.S. intelligence and last week’s federal indictments of 12 Russians for hacking into Democratic email accounts to purportedly hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.“I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” President Trump said following a...

    The question is, if Russian intelligence agencies successfully hacked into the DNC servers and worse, our election systems, shouldn't someone in our government be held accountable? What were our own intelligence and law enforcement agencies doing at the time? Sleeping at the switch? Why didn't Obama, Hillary and the democrats harden their systems and train their people in cyber security? Why was Hillary not prosecuted for her illegal and obviously NOT secure personal server that had classified government documents flowing through it to Russia and whomever, including assorted sexual perverts laptops? This all happened on Obama and Hillary's watch! Thank...
