    Issue 1: guy is a retard.
    Issue 2: Russians are more adapt at the internet and programming then the US. They already have access to plenty of anonymous programs. Giving more isn't going to add to anything. For the most part, Russian intelligence agencies already use such tools themselves.
    Issue 3: American gas will be far more expensive and Europe will still end up buying from Russia due to their investments.
    Issue 4: hacking away? I take it this guy knows little of computers. Anyway, they already do this and attempted multitude of times. And multitude of times, they are beaten back.
    Issue 5: Majority of Russians have access to foreign media. Unlike in US, they aren't threatening to ban it. So having more tools won't do squat cause Russians aren't blocked by the government from access western sources. Only method this is an attempt for is to help terrorists with bombing plots or creating mass distress through organizing groups. But even then, this can be countered with people monitoring and going through known sites and anonymous chats.

    I'm no CIA, but I should have had this guys job. Credentials must be low.

    Also, in intelligence, you are not supposed to announce plans because the enemy watches the news. In this case, Russia could call an emergency. Start replacing telecom systems to work under domestic internet. Work with China on comm structures. Start working for alternatives to sales to EU. Etc. Lots Russia could do. Announcing it just gives away plans and lets Russians prepare with ease and time.

    He is just too Arrogant and Snobbish like his boss Obama.

    He thinks every Russia is ready for a coup all they need is some anonmyous application to help them

    He has little knowledege how Energy Industry work , All he thinks is US needs is to transport Gas thousand of miles to get rid of Russian Oil/Gas for EU.

    With Power Comes Arrogance and Pride , With Pride Comes the Fall.

    Yes. Correct.

    He has a skewed image of Russia and the personal freedoms of the people. Russians have all the access they need. 2Chan is their anonymous site and even on their the gov gets lots of support. In reality, majority of Russians support their government and leadership. What this guy suggests is only beneficial for fringe groups who may kill innocent. And this guy is suggesting to support terrorists indirectly. This alone gives Russia every right to start moving to domestic network systems then allow tunneling into global networks so it can be monitored. Anonymous tools or not.

    Since Trump too admitted that the hack has been done by Russia.

    Do you think GRU have done a bad job in covering its tracks in the DNC hacks issue ?

    They didnt cover their tracks too well and got caught ?

    A more logical explanation is that he lacks the knowledge to publicly deny the suspicion so stating what by now is accepted as common knowledge by millions.

    He really cant deny of US IC head confirms it is the Russians and GRU did it.

    May be the GRU just did a shoddy job on hacking and it is also impossible to hide if the activity was done in such a scale and in such a co-ordinated manner.

    NSA has a tight grip of every packet that enters inside USA and goes out , I hope this is a lesson for GRU to improve on its cyber capabilities

    Everyone hacks on everybody else, Trump is fine with that. In fact he stated he cares more about how US intel gets leaked to the press more than anything else. Trump is a boss pirat

    Trump is a businessman, which just so happens to be the best thing for America at the moment, we'll see if that transfers to an international level. I was hardcore pro-Trump all the way to the office (as was anyone with half a brain) but now I'm a tad wary, some of his statements have been a little, er, conformist in recent weeks.

    @Austin
    We have no evidence of a Russian hack, just like we have no evidence of a Russian shoot-down of MH17, just like we have no evidence of a Russian invasion in Ukraine... and so on and so forth. When they present the facts, I will have time to listen.

    Besides, the CIA ODNI report included a fake story from 4chan, the US IC is screwed.

    I agree there is no open evidence , I saw most part of Senate hearing including the one for designate CIA chief yesterday.

    There are 3 reports presented by DNI chief , Public , Confidential and High Confidential.

    The public report is what we all saw
    Confidential was presented during closed senate hearing
    High Confidential that was presented only to very few people President , VP , President Elect and few others

    So they have not mentioned source in public report while Confidential and High Confidential had sources and methods mentioned.

    I belive Trump seeing the High Confidence report even he agreed Russian hacked DNC

    Hahahaha... yeah... lets listen to a Russophobe Brzezinski as to what is the right thing to do.

    Anyone paying attention in the last decade or so will have noticed that western attempts to manipulate Putin have seriously backfired.

    The previous attempts to separate Russia from China or even Russia from India who are traditional allies or even Russia from Turkey who are not have failed miserably... in fact as the article mentions have often backfired and moved Russia and China (India and Turkey) closer together.

    Recognising the growing strength of China, India, and Russia... ( I mean it is obvious... just look at how often Russia is mentioned in western news media these days... compared with a decade ago when they were mentioned when something bad happened there...) he has changed his tune... I would say don't fall for it... Russia, China, India, even Turkey should recognise the west for what it is and never trust its intentions or actions. Use them to get what you want but don't blindly trust they want anything but your submission and dissection into little chunks it can absorb and use up.

    Who knows the average sentence for traitors within the Russian government agency ranks? I wish its a life imprisonment in a remote Siberian gulag! if its not then I strongly suggest they do so immediately.

    Sentences for Espionage in the US seems tougher, why is Russia not following this? Russia is more vulnerable to foreign spies given the number of American vassal countries in NATO.

    This is the legacy of Yeltsin and Euro-philia. The model is Western Europe and not the USA. Hence, no death penalty.

    My approach would be to crank up the prison terms in lieu of the death penalty. I like the US consecutive life sentences for serial murders.

    Apple, Samsung, Microsoft: WikiLeaks blows lid on scale of CIA’s hacking arsenal

    https://www.rt.com/news/379757-your-whole-life-is-hacked/


    According to the preliminary release, the CIA has the capability to hack, record and even control everyday technology used by billions of people around the world.

    These include smartphones, tablets, smart TVs and even vehicles with remote control navigation systems.

    On these devices themselves, the CIA can allegedly hack into some of the world’s most heavily encrypted social media and communications platforms such as WhatsApp, Weibo, Confide, Signal and Telegram before any encryption can even be applied.

    For example, WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption means that only the direct participants in a conversation can read messages; not even WhatsApp is capable of reading them.

    The CIA, however, was able to hack into individual private WhatsApp messages before encryption could even be applied.

    “Your messages are secured with a lock, and only the recipient and you have the special key needed to unlock and read your message,” the company writes on their website.

    To understand the sheer scale of the leak and of the CIA’s high tech surveillance operations, the hierarchy of divisions within the agency’s cyber division can be looked at below.

    Russian Intelligence Services: News & Discussion - Page 9 C6Uli2EXEAEI_uR

    According to WikiLeaks, the manufacturing division for the Agency’s hacking tools, or ‘zero days’ as they are dubbed in the leaks, is the EDG (Engineering Development Group), which is under the umbrella of the agency’s CCI (Center for Cyber Intelligence).

    Smartphone devices


    The CIA's Mobile Devices Branch (MDB) developed a variety of tools and techniques to remotely hack and control the world’s most popular smartphones and tablets.

    Once hacked, phones can be used to transmit their “geolocation, audio and text communications” directly to the CIA without the user’s knowledge. In addition, the CIA can remotely activate the phone’s microphone and camera.

    Apple devices

    Despite Apple holding a minority share in the global smartphone market in 2016, the CIA’s Mobile Development Branch has a specific division dedicated to the hacking of Apple devices which run the iOS operating system from smartphones and tablets.

    WikiLeaks also alleges that the CIA not only developed but collaborated on or purchased a variety of hacking tools or ‘zero days’ from intelligence agencies and contractors around the world such as GCHQ, NSA, FBI or Baitshop.

    Samsung


    The EDG has produced a ‘zero day’ capable of hacking Samsung smart TVs, switching it into a fake ‘off mode’ where the device appears to remain on standby while actually recording audio and transmitting it to nearby secured CIA servers.

    For context, Samsung was the top-selling television brand in the world for the last decade with a global market share of 21 percent as of 2015. WikiLeaks did not specify in the initial release whether video recordings were also a part of this particular ‘zero day.’

    Vehicle control

    As far back as 2014, WikiLeaks alleges that the CIA was exploring the possibility of infecting control systems in modern cars and trucks. While the exact goal of such control has yet to be established, WikiLeaks suggests that such hacks could be used for almost undetectable assassinations.


    Russian Intelligence Services: News & Discussion - Page 9 C6Uh543VUAA_F7n

    Android devices (Samsung, HTC, Sony)

    The majority of the world’s smartphones (approximately 85 percent) run on the Android operating system, with roughly 1.15 billion Android devices sold last year, according to the WikiLeaks statement. Naturally, the CIA devoted an entire subdivision to hacking Android devices, with 24 individual weaponized ‘zero days’ targeting Android devices.

    Microsoft


    The CIA’s cyber division has developed numerous local and remote ‘zero days’ to hack and control Microsoft Windows users.

    These ‘zero days’ include, but are not limited to: air gap jumping viruses such as ‘Hammer Drill’ that are capable of infecting computers or phones that have never been connected to the internet; hacking tools that focus on removable devices such as USB drives; systems for hiding data, be it in covert disk areas or in images; particular ‘zero days’ that are manufactured to self-perpetuate and hide themselves from detection on an ongoing basis.

    Before any tech experts gloat, WikiLeaks also alleges that the CIA has developed advanced, multi-platform malware attack and control systems that cover Windows and Mac OS X but also mixed source platforms like Solaris and open source platforms like Linux. Wikileaks names these specific ‘zero days’ as the EDB's ‘HIVE,’ ‘Cutthroat’ and ‘Swindle’ tools.

    The issue is too serious and too critical for Russia to wait for its OS to be developed.

    They should just remove any US or other provider server and routers from MIC , Space , R&D Institution , Hospitals , Critical Infra and replace with Russian Build Hardware and Software.

    IBM , CISCO , Windows , ZTE are just extended Spying Arm of US Government and Chinese

    The extent of CIA tools used and methods are mind boggling , I can just imagine how much competent NSA must be
