The Wikileaks/CIA scandal that erupted yesterday has given America a LOT to chew on.
And none of it tastes good.
In point of fact, it’s actually quite terrifying. The idea that the CIA has “lost control” in any way is frightening, but when you toss in the far-reaching ability to listen in on any private citizen’s conversation…
Well, that’s where things start to get very, very sinister.
This goes well beyond anything Barack Obama may or may not have done (despite the massive amount of evidence that’s rapidly piling up against him); this is about national security and just how tenuous it seems to be.
Now, the latest on the WikiLeaks “Year Zero” dump, courtesy of Vessel News:
With UMBRAGE and related projects the CIA cannot only increase its total number of attack types but also misdirect attribution by leaving behind the ‘fingerprints’ of the groups that the attack techniques were stolen from.
UMBRAGE components cover keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques.”
This means the CIA can execute cyberattacks and make it look like they originated from Russia, or other countries. It means they can effectively hide while potentially targeting Americans.
Remember when WikiLeaks busted the Hillary Clinton email scandal wide open? And did you see yesterday’s story about a complete leaked report that blows the Clinton Foundation corruption sky-high?
All of that is child’s play compared to this. This is REALLY scary.
