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
Glenn Greenwald: how the NSA tampers with US-made internet routers
This is one of the reasons that piss me off ,boils my blood about Putin.
His ignorance on how extremely critical important if for Russia to become fully
technology independent from United states. Sanctions had to happen first by Europe in 2014 on Russia for Putin realize that perhaps he needs to invest on his own computers and software. Putin came in power in 2000 ,and he could have by now had a strong semiconductor industry in Russia ,if he did not wasted so much money in useless olympics ,financing veterans of world war 2 ,some that not even are Russian citizens. and so large useless navy for defending Russia no idea from what , Since NATO can deploy their missiles right there at Russian borders. Americans can tomorrow morning disconnect Russia from the internet for example and it will happen at the second Us and Russia engage in a small direct fight. it can also disconnect Russia banking system too for depending on European swift.
About CIA/NSA capabilities to control technology , many do not understand that many of this so called "Hacks" are nothing more than Backdoors , that is
undocumented "Features" ,developed by that american or some major allies european companies at the request of the American government ,that the hardware in question had from factory when produced since day one.
so that the American government can spy on american citizens or any citizen of the world using American or European technology.
Look at example of the controversy of US bush elections in florida ,where voting machines ,somehow became biased and counted backwards many of the votes for the Bush competition. in the report on youtube called [hacking democracy]. What in reality happened was NOT a hack. But that voting machines memory card disk ,developed by a company which received a lot of money by the US government. had an unexpected ,secret hardware inside the memory disk ,that had nothing to do with the function of the storage device.
and it was a secret cheating device ,installed in the memory disk that can be easily modified by any of the company staff ,to count backwards the votes of any Candidate the Republican party or democrats one ,did not liked. Cable companies also have been boosted included spy cameras inside their cable converter to record and film any family home ,what they were doing. This have nothing to do with security ,but about having information they could use to control society . For example it could be used to expose a lawmaker cheating on their wife , or get evidence of pedhopilia on children they could use to black mail and control any politicians. So this spying is not for security but for blackmailing and control of society . it can be used for stealing intellectual property too , industrial espionage ,the blue prints of a new monitor ,of technology etc.
So all this problems of Microsoft software ,apple electronics ,or Intel or Amd technology , is not a hack in reality, but a feature integrated secretly in that hardware ,for facilitating any stealing of private information. it could be used for easy money , lets say stealing credit card bank accounts ,that is a few thousands free dollars here or there and blame it on "hackers".
So it should not be surprising Karpersky claims of Fileless malware in computers. Is not a hack but undocumented features ,that American companies of technology integrate in their software and hardware for the benefit of a fascist government who wants to control every opposition to the government and have in check any ally. So many of this undocumented features on American technology can be countered at all with anything. It have been told CIA can enter in any private server ,without the other side even being aware of it ,because it was designed that way. So you could have any antivirus or firewall in the world ,no matter how good it is ,and will never
be able to stop a US agency of spying on it ,because those are undocumented secret features the hardware and software have since it was created. It will be similar at selling a brand new house to someone , but in the basement of the house ,there is a secret passage ,a secret tunnel ,that people from outside who knows about it ,can enter the house and steal anything totally bypassing all house doors security and without a need to break anything. So the word "hacking " is misleading , the CIA does not bother to hack ,they just enter on any server with Windows software ,normally with the point of a few mouse clicks. They also can bribe software designers ,to develop secret functionality in their software or hardware ,so that the US government can enter at will.it was wikileaks who exposed how the CIA can steal the IP of any nation ,use it to commit fraud anywhere ,and later the trace of the attack will be blamed on the nation who they stole its ip. After all the Internet Servers are all in United States. so they with the flip of switch here or there can shutdown internet on any nation.
So all the problems with internet security is working as intended.
. is not a "mistake" ,is not "american incompetence" but working as intended ,is the way it was supposed to work and the way it was designed.that is US computers industry and Internet . The US government simply wants 100% of the technology produce in America, Europe to be very simple and easy to enter . it could be by the CIA to steal intellectual property , that is the blueprints of a commercial product of the compettion. ie. A new monitor or any new technological invention.
This is why Putin have been eating shit ,his entire time as politician and not promoting Russia to become fully independent of the wester technology ,including internet . If Israel that is a tiny state ,can design Intel processors , then i don't see why Russia can't. Russia needs an industrial revolution in IT and semiconductors , fast computers and artificial intelligence. By not pushing Russia into becoming Truly independent nation ,not only in politics or military ,as they are now ,but also in technology too. and instead wasting so much money ,so many billions and billions of dollars in stupid sports or re-enacting Russia glorious soviet past and former victories.
So fileless malware indeed is a nightmare to counter it a reverse engineering of western technology is need to fully counter it ,or create its own alternative.
So Putin is a decade late in banning the use of western software ,or technology in their government and military industries. Russia needs to kick their own ass really hard and start investing in a strong technology industry for Russia.
