Russia did not hack the DNC, says John McAfee
Dec 31, 2016
John McAfee, who was the first one to create an antivirus software company to protect computers, knows all about computing, viruses, and hacking. He says that there is no way that Russia hacked the DNC computers, as the CIA is claiming.
The Joint Analysis Report from the FBI contains an appendix that lists hundreds of IP addresses that were supposedly “used by Russian civilian and military intelligence services.” While some of those IP addresses are from Russia, the majority are from all over the world, which means that the hackers constantly faked their location.
McAfee argues that the report is a “fallacy,” explaining that hackers can fake their location, their language, and any markers that could lead back to them. Any hacker who had the skills to hack into the DNC would also be able to hide their tracks, he said.
“If I was the Chinese and I wanted to make it look like the Russians did it, I would use Russian language within the code, I would use Russian techniques of breaking into the organization,” McAfee said, adding that, in the end, “there simply is no way to assign a source for any attack.”
However, McAfee does see a problem with the National Security Agency (NSA) being able to listen in on every conversation and read every text message and email of every American. Rather than focusing on disrupting the bad guys in foreign countries, McAfee thinks that “all of that effort has been placed on a country that is afraid of its own citizens.”
He claims that the only way he has been able to fully block the NSA from infecting his phone with spyware is by using a flip-phone too old to be hacked. He even goes as far as to call the iPhone the “ultimate spy device.”
He is simply telling us that the Russians are not stupid. If they had done the hacking, they would not have left evidence that could allow the CIA to trace the source back to Russia. According to Wikileaks, it was dissenting insiders from the CIA itself that did the hacking and who sent the hacks to the leakers, causing big problems for the Democratic Party, Hillary Clinton, and especially Mr. Podesta, who was linked to pedophilia and to Satanist practices.
The Democrats are angry at their exposure, not at the hacking per se. But these dissenters in the CIA thought that inquiring minds want to know the real character of those on the ballot.
