WikiLeaks says CIA disguised agency hacking as Russian activity

“WikiLeaks has published hundreds more files today which it claims show the CIA went to great lengths to disguise its own hacking attacks and point the finger at Russia, China, North Korea and Iran,” The Daily Mail reports. “The 676 files released today are part of WikiLeaks’ Vault 7 tranche of files and they claim to give an insight into the CIA’s Marble software, which can forensically disguise viruses, trojans and hacking attacks.”

“WikiLeaks says the source code suggests Marble has test examples in Chinese, Russian, Korean, Arabic and Farsi,” The Daily Mail reports. “This could lead forensic investigators into wrongly concluding that CIA hacks were carried out by the Kremlin, the Chinese government, Iran, North Korea or Arabic-speaking terror groups such as ISIS.”

“Wikileaks said the release of confidential documents on the agency already eclipses the total number of pages published over the first three years of the Edward Snowden NSA leaks,” The Daily Mail reports. “Experts who’ve started to sift through the material said it appeared legitimate – and that the release was almost certain to shake the CIA.”

    1. An interesting wrinkle in the story… undoubtedly not the last one. I have no doubt the CIA has written code to try and disguise it’s origin. As far as I can see, however, that does nothing to clarify whether or not Russia was actively interfering in our last election. I’d say we’re about 1% into the plot line on this story, and it’s doubtful that the whole thing will ever come out into full view.

      1. Define ‘actively interfering’.
        List the actions you think they did on behalf of Trump or to merely disrupt and try not to be vague.

        It’s fake news, but go ahead, make my weekend.

        1. I think you mis-read my post.

          I was not advocating a position as to whether the Russions did anything on behalf of Trump. I certainly don’t know and maybe no one knows at this point. The question before us currently is, weret they were interfering?

          Thee point I was trying to make was that this story about the CIA having written code to make it appear as if it came from another country so far has nothing to do with the question about Russia’s role in our last election.

          What may come out down the road, who knows? But that’s a long way into the story and it may never become public knowledge.

          1. The current story by the DNC-paid “pay-to-attribute” security contractor is that the Russian government has done the hacks via serially implicated “hacking group” that used Yandex (the biggest Russian mail service) and signed their edits by the name of the founder of the KGB.

            Totally believable, right; I am waiting for the CIA hacks that are signed Allen Dalles.

            At the same time the DNC/CrowdStrike has repeatedly denied the access of investigators to the DNC’s server.

    2. Reposting because this needs to go on the front page…..

      Nigel Farage, yeah, that Nigel Farage, recently had dinner with Trump then turned up a couple of days later in London and visited Julian Assange in his luxurious Ecuadorian cupboard.

      Don’t believe a word Wikileaks is telling you. It’s as fake as a Sean Spicer press statement.

            1. Haha. Is that the best you can do?

              Well, consider me burned sirree 😃

              Assange is anything but a hero. If he were a hero he would leave his little hidey-hole and face down the charges against him. No, the man is a coward. A corrupted one at that. He, Farage and Trump go well together. Fraudsters one and all.

      1. Dear Democrats, Anti-American Marxists, Global Elitists, Paid trolls, lefty leeches:

        You are clearly losing this fight. George Soros and his evil ways have been unveiled and it’s an ugly reality. But we will continue to crush the enemy. I know you are in a panic! Like cockroaches when the lights turn on. But Goodness prevails and We The People are winning. Eyes are opened and we will crush the (leftist agenda) darkness with the truth.

        1. Good LORD, you’re stupid – I’m surprised you can dress yourself (…err – *can* you dress yourself?)

          Personally, I hope your Fourth Reich fever dreams never come to pass, but honestly, I’m not afraid. I spent too many years as PART of the “patriot” movement: while y’all are not dangerous as a movement, you ARE dangerous as useful idiots – the voters who keep putting the DESTROYERS of America back in office to continue pissing on our traditions, continue to pretend to be “jus’ folks” – and continue selling off this nation – in pieces – to the highest bidders.

          Beyond that, y’all tend to be prickly, humorless assholes & bullies, but only dangerous when armed…in groups…and drunk…or when you can get the drop on someone in a alley….

          But your …words… there show that a rich fantasy life exists among your people – I don’t think you could have said anything more false or more crazy.

          Good luck ‘making America great’ with a psychotic “vision” like that….

  1. We know Wikileaks was fed information by the Russians and then passed it on as though Wikileaks was the one that found it.

    We know this because the Russians were so clumsy when modifying the emails before giving them to Wikileaks.

    Wikileaks has turned itself into stooges for the Russians.

    Why should any of us believe what these guys put out now? Maybe when they first began they had some credibility, but not now.

      1. Wish you luck on that one, I doubt that any of the parties involved in this are actually speaking more truth than lies and all have their own motives and agenda that blind them to even trying to being truthful while feeing their version of it to the eternally gullible.

  2. Please go back to posting only on “Infowars” and “Breitbart”. Trump is dragging America backwards and is weakening our democracy and personal liberty and privacy. Even Reagan (who I voted for) would be ashamed of where the Republican party has gone.

      1. When Trump STOPS calling America a Democracy, maybe you will have a point. Until then, your infantile attempt to defend Trump is invalid. Indeed, Trump has called America “The Greatest Democracy ever!”

      2. Hey! I gave “you” a star! can you imagine?
        For once you wrote it right: America is a FAKE democracy… and now, running towards idiocracy and right into the wall!

        1. Actually it is another acid test for democracy. We’ll see if democracy survives this latest insult, as it has others in the past. If the word democracy riles the definition nazis, call it representative government instead.

  3. “I will splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it into the wind.”
    – John Kennedy

    Merle Miller: Mr. President, I know that you were responsible as President for setting up the CIA. How do you feel about it now?

    Truman: I think it was a mistake. And if I’d know what was going to happen, I never would have done it.

        1. Well, podnuh, I was alive and an American who lived through the JFK years, so it is no “myth” to me. Nor was his saving civilization during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Nor was his battle against the Federal Reserve or the CIA or the brutality of East German oppression in Berlin. The only real mistake of the JFK administration was his EO allowing federal employees to unionize, and boy, that was a whopper.

            1. The “lone gunman” was hardly alone, but was part of a vast right-wing conspiracy. So covenient that Oswald was silenced by another gunman, who was himself silenced. Layer after layer covers up why what happened, happened. Hell, it was one hundred years before the Lincoln assassination documents were unlocked. Political ecosystems do not react well to the light of day.

              We can argue who was the greater villain, Jimmy Hoffa, Nikita Khruschev, J. Edgar Hoover, Sam Rayburn, or Walt Disney. What is inarguable is that the assassination of a national leader is an occasion of profound personal and collective trauma, something that hurts forever.

  4. Wikileaks IS Russian give and take.

    “1,000 Paid Russian Trolls Spread Fake News On Hillary Clinton, Senate Intelligence Heads Told:

    A former FBI agent testified that President Donald Trump helped spread fake news by embracing the stories against his opponents.”

    We knew that. Everyone is gonna want immunity when it all hits the fan.

    1. “Yes. We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” Assange said.

      ..gee, whose credibility is stronger: Julian Assange, the only person who could actually know the source of the emails whose record is 100% authentic OR Auramac’s unnamed “former FBI agent” within the The Muslim Usurper’s sty of sycophants?

      :::insert image of Munch’s “The Scream” here:::

          1. Great, now you know a latin phrase, part two is understanding it. Let me help. From its comment, “whose credibility is stronger: Julian Assange, the only person who could actually know the source of the emails whose record is 100% authentic” The fact that Assange is hiding from extradition related to a warrant in a criminal manner goes directly to the credibility of anything that comes out of his POS mouth anti-American mouth.

            1. List the prosecutions that resulted pursuant to the information found in the emails. What they reveal is a raft of behavior and actions that should not be allowed under the law, particularly influence buying by private and corporate donors.
              Alternatively, say with a straight face that an anti-American POS holed up in an embassy (who Clinton went after for the release of the Manning material) is more reliable that America’s intelligence services. You do realize he is trying to wait out Sweden’s statues of limitations, right? He is not sacrificing his freedom for the American electorate, he doesn’t want to go to jail in Sweden.

            2. There were no prosecutions because of the “justice by tarmac” of Lynch Mob Loretta…an honest Attorney General is on the job now (finally, after a month of political stalling), and you and your fellow libtärds are going to be “displeased.”

            3. ..and you will cry like leedle girls!

              while I, M. Botvinnik, relish in the glory of Justitia’s swift sword on the throats of your treason.

              good times…paddleboat rides, noodle salad and just retribution to traitors. Gonna be a fun summer. Enjoy.

            4. …raises visions of family outings in 1810 to observe public whippings for misdemeanors, accompanied by parasols and box lunches, culminating in a joyful cascade of catcalls at a pair of hangings. You know, we’re still just as casually bloodthirsty as ever, just some of us try to be circumspect. Call it timidity, call it cowardice, call it shame. I don’t relish public humiliation, deserved or not. It’s the spectacle that I reject. Just take a gun and shoot them like a horse, and be done with it.

            5. I was primly reacting to your implied definition of “fun”, namely picknicking whilst joyfully watching loathed opponents writhe. That seems too close to the joy of the ISIS beheaders. For my taste, revenge is a dish best served cold—in private.

      1. I would say the former FBI guy who swore an oath and testified in public forum before a panel of government representatives.
        But you go ahead and trust the guy who offers no proof other than he said so and had a lot more to lose should it come to light he was a puppet and or fool.

            1. here’s ya’ some “wannabe,” punk:

              18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason
              Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
              (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)

            2. More copy/paste. Show us the leaked emails that prove this treason, honorable armchair prosecutor. You read all 35k pieces of proof you have and you’re a real stickler on due process, so get off your fat trolling ass and prove a point. Your endless innuendo is so fucking tiring.

  5. Not surprising in the least, what a loser of a country, I mean you have to be a pretty pathetic nation to do something like this, but it’s par for the course. When it comes to that nation being scum, it’s mission accomplished.

  6. Nigel Farage, yeah, that Nigel Farage, recently had dinner with Trump then turned up a couple of days later in London and visited Julian Assange in his luxurious Ecuadorian cupboard.

    Don’t believe a word Wikileaks is telling you. It’s as fake as a Sean Spicer press statement.

  7. Wikileaks is exceptionally reliable, and it’s doing the newspaper’s job.

    Proof that Russia hacked Hillary’s emails was and still is lacking. There are only assertions, first by Hitlery to divert attention from her illegal server for which, if she had been a lower level worker would have been charged with the WWI era arcane US Espianage Act, then in lock step order, by the CIA, then the FBI both of whom also offered no proof.

    Those two members of the National Security Police State Spy Apparatus agreed with Hillary – as I said without providing proof – because they wanted the CIA-friendly and Wall St.-friendly $hillary to win; The CIA and Wall St. are a team.

    This latest revelation from WL stongly indicates that the CIA has the capability, the willingness, and the apportunity to create false blame to further its candidate.

    1. There used to be a big difference between putting a better face on things and lying through your teeth. Now, prevarication of all sorts is being proffered as necessary to protect a supposed social or moral good. What tommyrot!

  8. Love the Spy -vs–Spy homage! Nice job, MDN! Hahahaha!

    Yeah, Julian has lost so much credibility after all of the one sided “releases” last year just prior to the election. Does anyone believe that they truly had nothing on Trump? What a joke.

    I used to think Wikileaks was a good, 4th Estate kind of thing, but it seems clear it’s being corrupted by partisan politics and has lost most, if not all, credibility.
