    John McAfee Lays It Out , Russia DID NOT Hack The DNC

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E7t5...ature=youtu.be



    “In there are four facts which they claim prove that Russia did this hack. It was utter nonsense. The information was number one – Russian language was found in the malware. Number two – a Cyrillic keyboard was used. The forensic science can now tell what type of keyboard was used to develop a piece of a malware,” McAfee told RT.

    “Number three – the compiler, the piece of software that compiles the code so that it can execute, always dated time stamps. The time stamps were in a time zone for the business hours of Moscow and St. Petersburg and other places in Russia and the number four that the IP address pointed to a Russian address.”

    To make it simple for the American audience, McAfee metaphorically explained the situation:

    “Seriously, if Russia declared war on us because we hacked Russia and the head of the CIA and the intelligence committee came to the Congress and they ask him ‘What happened?’ – ‘Oh, well you know we didn’t have time to remove English language, we didn’t have time to move the date stamp, the guy could not use a Chinese keyboard, so we gave him our regular keyboard. And also there was my wife’s birthday so I could not remove the IP address.’”

    Thus, McAfee believes, the whole “Russian hacking” narrative is either “propaganda intended to incite the American people, to anger toward Russia for some reason, or our intelligence community is so ignorant and naïve that they should all be replaced.”

    Cybersecurity specialist believes that based on the presented evidence the hack “cannot possibly be an organized nation-state.”

    “The hack on the DNC used a piece of malware a year and a half old and there have been many updates since then, McAfee said. “This was done by an independent one person kid that downloaded the software. Please, this is not an organized hack and certainly not a nation-state that did this.”

    Obama is attempting to degrade what relations the US and Russia have along with hopefully straining the relations between Trump and Putin as he runs out the door.

    John McAfee is a very troubled man and offers nothing new or interesting or compelling in this assessment.

    RT is the official English voice of the Kremlin. It is directly funded by the Russian government. That's your source, mad?
    That'd be like listening to Voice of America and nodding along when they claim to not use drones to assassinate people.

    But sure, seventeen intelligence agencies are all wrong. This one guy is right.
    Except he's not.

    Are you stating the intelligence agencies are always correct?

    You use a post on a twitter account to reference your material, that is a good one.

    Regardless of what you think of Larry King, RT stands for "Russia Today" and is funded by the Russian government.

    The bottomline is Podesta fell for a phishing scam. If those in positions of power are so ineptly trained on cyber security or blatantly choose to ignore, (does Billary's unsecured private email server ring a bell), that's truly what we need to assess and rectify.

    Podesta's emails were part of a phishing campaign. That is separate from the other two hacks against the DNC which were done by or at the order of Russia.

    Child, stop being butthurt just because I called you out on linking to Russian propaganda.
    The wiki article contains links to fifty articles that it cited. I am not going to list those for you. Be an adult and do a little reading.

    Also, still waiting for you to answer my question.

    pickel, I know you think Hillary is hot and you are obsessed with her, but this isn't about her anymore. She lost the election. Get over it.

    Internet security systems are kinda like auto security systems. As soon as you put up a stop block, the bad guys out there are working on ways to defeat it. China, Russia and the like have been hacking us for a decade or more. If we don't step it up to stay ahead of them, and they somehow knock out our power grid in today's technology, we could defenselessly be toast. Believe me this is a wake up call. We either answer the call, or pay the consequences. Obviously the DNC failed to answer the call on a political part, however we need to always answer the call and keep ahead on the national security part.
