Once again, we hear that the Russian government hacked the US elections.
I really doubt it, once again.
Thanks to @CTVNews in Canada for calling on me to explain this in a bit more detail: http://www.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=1025496
It’s year end, nearly, so I’ll be short. Vladimir Fomenko, owner of King Servers of Russia, a tiny “Godaddy” like internet host, who offers hosting starting as low as $5.00 USD per month has made some important statements:
Now, we have this: https://www.us-cert.gov/sites/default/files/publications/JAR_16-20296.pdf a beautiful well done publication directly pointing at the Russian Government for the attack. And we see the sanctions begin: https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/OFAC-Enforcement/Pages/20161229.aspx
As they always say, “COOLER HEADS PREVAIL.”
Pointing a finger at the Russian government, without digging deeply into the remote access to these servers from EUROPE, placing sanctions on them, in Latin, this is called faciens a magnus pulmentum or making a big mess. It’s glaringly obvious that the NCCIC joint report with the FBI, while well written, skipped over this major issue.
I always call it like it is – I don’t think the Russian government is ever this sloppy in their hacking attacks and while sometimes it takes many years, time will tell and truth will prevail as to what really happened in regards to GRIZZLEY STEPPE but for now, I’m sticking with my original prediction and with too many years on the job in the anti-hacking community, in these matters, I’m usually right.
