How many times do you have to hear it? The Russian hack report released by the Obama administration is not worth the paper it’s written on.
Cyber Warfare author Jeffrey Carr just said the report added nothing in the way of evidence that proves Russia did anything to our Government. If you want to get technical, The Clinton campaign and the DNC are not government agencies to Obama messed up there too.
The government has dumbed down Americans to the point they cannot think for themselves. I know too many people that don’t have the common sense to be objective and look at facts!
Jeffrey Carr, author of Inside Cyber Warfare, wrote on Friday that the report “adds nothing to the call for evidence that the Russian government was responsible” for the campaign hacks. Robert Lee, a former Air Force cyberwarfare officer and cybersecurity fellow at New America, argues that the report is of limited use to security professionals, in part because of poor organization and lack of crucial details.
The report, Carr says, lists hacking groups previously suspected of Russian government ties, mostly identified by commercial security firms, “without providing any supporting evidence that such a connection exists.” That evidence may still remain classified, but Carr says that if so, it should be reviewed by an independent commission, because the White House targeting of Russia “is looking more and more like a domestic political operation run by the White House”.
Lee is much less skeptical of the White House, calling the accusations against the Russian government “a strong and accurate statement.” But he highlights extensive sloppy mistakes and limited practical data in the Grizzly Steppe report. A list of names used to identify hacking campaigns, such as APT28 and COZYBEAR, inexplicably mingles in the names of both malware tools and capabilities. Data intended to help network administrators block attacks is missing vital IP addresses and attack timelines.
Lee also says descriptions of the techniques of the groups profiled is “very generic,” and of little use for network defense. He concludes that Grizzly Steppe “seems like a very rushed report,” and speculates that any useful data was removed during the review and approval process.
There are a lot of holes in the report, and it was rushed to the public so Obama could invoke sanctions on Russia before the end of the year.
Every cyber security expert has called the “report” childish. And now they want us to believe that Made in Ukraine Russian malware was found in Vermont’s power grid, and Putin did that too. So tired of this incessant lying and propaganda.
