Skip to comments.The Perfect Weapon: How Russian Cyberpower Invaded the U.S. (and Hillary)
Posted on 12/18/2016 1:53:26 PM PST by Libloather
WASHINGTON When Special Agent Adrian Hawkins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation called the Democratic National Committee in September 2015 to pass along some troubling news about its computer network, he was transferred, naturally, to the help desk.
His message was brief, if alarming. At least one computer system belonging to the D.N.C. had been compromised by hackers federal investigators had named the Dukes, a cyberespionage team linked to the Russian government.
The F.B.I. knew it well: The bureau had spent the last few years trying to kick the Dukes out of the unclassified email systems of the White House, the State Department and even the Joint Chiefs of Staff, one of the governments best-protected networks.

These MSM psychotics just can’t let go of this fake Russian hacking meme. They have to keep priming their zombie followers with lies.
So the Slimes is now blaming Clintoonie”s political ass whipping on Bo and Luke Duke and the Confederate flag on the General Lee? This is quite a stretch.
And it's *also* the WH that told us that BillBob's airport meeting with the AG was about grand kids.
I already have a horror movie called The Russians’. It’s about a strange creature which lurks in every liberal retard’s peon brain and makes them suffer beyond insanity. That and the libtard apocalypse called TRUMP WINS...
So stupid an article.
Email phishing is rampant. Successful efforts are put up for sale immediately- to everyone.
No need to read any further. Its obviously fake news. Even a moderately skilled IT team doesn't take "a few years" to terminate an intruders access to a system. A few days is more like it.
For a high value system, they should be running the service in a virtual machine with a known clean image saved nearby. Within hours of detecting the breach the service should have been switched over and running on a known good image in a new virtual machine. And every logging tool known to man would be watching the traffic in and out of the new instance of the service to see if the attackers return.
The IT teams in the federal government may not be the greatest, but they aren't total idiots either. And I would guess that the IT guys keeping the White House, State Department, and Joint Chiefs of Staff email systems running have close ties to technical people in the FBI, CIA, NSA, and DOD, and ready access to IT security experts in the private sector.
Why the Democrats and the New York Times are spewing propaganda about the Russians is the real question we all need to delve in to.
Wait, is this the fake news or the news that the DNC wasn’t hacked but a DNC staffer leaked the emails the fake news, but in other fake news reports Hillary is 5 points ahead of Trump!
That’s easy, discredit Trimp and his victory. Every thing Trump does from now on will be framed as hurting the US and helping Russia.
It’s the “Bush lied” playbook all over again. We are going to hear this drumbeat until the next Dem is elected, then it’ll disappear. The big difference is that Bush thought it undignified to fight back. It’ll be interesting to see how Trump will deal with this.
> “Why the Democrats and the New York Times are spewing propaganda about the Russians is the real question we all need to delve in to.”
Same reason that Baghdad Bob was in front of the international news media declaring that Iraqi forces were slaughtering the US-led invading ground forces. It was to keep the Iraqi forces and civilian populations from fleeing.
Dem leadership has to keep its base from turning on them and themselves. The cry of ‘Russians Hacking’ is supposed to unify the dem base aginst the unfair cheating of Trump deplorables and take the burden off the back of incompetent dem leaders who are the real culprits in the loss to republicans.
Big ominous cyber terrorists oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
1. If the stuff that was hacked is genuine - and it's pretty obvious that it is - the real story is what the DNC was doing and who their candidate was, not how the information became public.
2. If the Russians really hacked the DNC, why hasn't it occurred to the NYT and the other pressboobs that they must have also gotten all of Hillary's classified e-mails while she was at State too.
The enemy really isn't Russia: it's the pompous pinheads that are too high and mighty to bother with security while pulling stuff they don't want anyone to see.
Its a simple story really.
Hillary Clinton gets millions of dollars through the Clinton Founation and Fundraising. Soros inserts millions into the rectal cavities of community organizer networks of the Dem left.
All of this money was given to buy access to the Hillary Clinton presidency, and to create a leftist hegemon that would last a hundred years and weaken America.
BUT CLINTON LOST.
Now there are a whole bunch of very pissed off donors.
So what do the Demonflaps do?
They blame the Russians.
And just coincidentally, the Russians donated no money to the Hitlery campaign.
There are no Russians who did as they are accused. If the election was influenced, it was influenced by the massive foreign Clinton donors through the Clinton Foundation.No one foresaw Trump or the beating hearts of American Patriots who voted hin to the presidency.
And the international community who donated so heavily to the Clintons? You have learned a lesson: Never back a dark horse. And may dem heads roll.
They’ll never talk about the content of the emails, that’s too damning. We’re just starting to find out how far the Empire will go to protect itself.
Another load of bollocks from the NYT.
