WikiLeaks GOES TO WAR against the CIA with massive new data dump #Vault7

Whoa.

WikiLeaks announced Tuesday morning that it is the process of releasing thousands of classified documents from the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency — what they’re calling “Vault 7” — including information alleging that the intelligence agency “lost control of the majority of its hacking arsenal including malware, viruses, trojans, weaponized ‘zero day’ exploits:

According to WikiLeaks, the loss of this “arsenal” raises “serious proliferation concerns”:

Panic in Year Zero: It is important that SurvivalBlog readers take the time to read at least the summary of the Wikileaks “Year Zero” March 7th announcement. (Also known as Vault 7.) The ramifications of this release of state-sanctioned and state-sponsored cyberweapons are huge. The sheer volume of weaponized code that has been unleashed is amazing. The mis-use of these cyberweapons could very rapidly devastate e-commerce, banking, satellite navigation systems, and public utilities, including national power grids. Do not dismiss this as mere speculation. The risk is real, and the risk is huge. This announcement is just one more reason for SurvivalBlog readers to redouble their preparedness efforts. Make your preparations now, before the lights go out! – JWR

WikiLeaks confirms that everyone[/b] is tapped, not just Trump.

Quote
...To channel the late Preston Sturges, privacy is not only dead, it's decomposed. The [b]CIA's Remote Devices Branch, known as UMBRAGE, is capable of -- or is -- watching you everywhere you go, even when you think they're not or such surveillance would seem impossible.

The question about whether President Trump was tapped has been reduced to a joke. The real questions are how often and from how many places. The answer would probably shock us, if we were ever to learn the truth. (And did President Obama know what they were doing? Either that or the CIA, FBI or NSA wasn't telling him. You decide.)

The Wikileaks documents (everyone believes their downloads now) show how the CIA, via their eerily named "Weeping Angel" program, has devised a method of listening to us through our smart TVs. Even when we think they're off, they are able to keep them on -- and recording -- through a "fake-off" program.

Just how many smart TVs does Donald Trump -- a known television addict -- watch in a day? Who is he talking to at the time? A foreign leader perhaps? And what is he saying in supposed confidence?

These days it's hard to buy a television that isn't a smart TV. The Wikileaks documents show only the popular Samsung has been hacked, but since the agency assiduously hacks both Apple and Android cellphones, one can assume all major brands are covered. (They're not stupid. We are.)

And that's far from their only way of listening in. Tyler Durden -- considerably more tech savvy than I -- expresses the amazement of that community that the CIA was able to bypass the purportedly powerful cellphone data security apps (Signal, Telegram) so many business executives, politicians and journalists rely upon, even to using our own anti-virus programs (McAfee, etc.) to spy on us. They also, apparently, can control our cars through the latest automobile computers. (NOTE TO SELF: Skip the Apple CarPlay upgrade.)

Further, Durden quotes Twitter star Kimdotcom's instant observation that the DNC/Russian hacking connection is also now a joke (at least highly suspect) since the CIA also has a program, via UMBRAGE again, to imitate Russian hacking techniques and leave the Russkies' "fingerprints" on their own handiwork. Could the CIA have hacked the DNC and then blamed it on the Russians for some purpose? It seems unlikely, but anything's possible in this crazy and increasingly bizarre and alienating world. If it is true, don't look now, but our country just exploded.

Our hope, for now, is in the congressional investigations, but it's hard to have much confidence in them. The media, of course, is ludicrous. They have clearly become the witting/unwitting lackeys of all manner of leakers from any number of intelligence agencies. It's become dizzying as the internal contradictions mount up daily. (Who told you there was a FISA order again? Oh, wait...) The New York Times and the Washington Post, among others, have reached self-parody in their cock-eyed denials of what they asserted only weeks ago, while the CIA grows progressively more partisan and ominously totalitarian in its values and methods.

Whatever the case, we all have to do some serious thinking -- way beyond the general superficiality and contrived drama of congressional hearings or indeed the quick in-and-out of an op-ed. What is being revealed here is a sea change in the human condition that is almost evolutionary in its implications. What are our lives like without the presumption of privacy? What kind of creatures will we become in this brave new world that appears already to have arrived? It's not fun to contemplate. Even the medieval peasantry had moments of escape from their feudal lords.

While initially critical of the Snowdens, Assanges or, for that matter, the mystery man behind this latest literally Earth-shattering dump, I now have somewhere between mixed and positive feelings towards them. (Well, maybe not Snowden.) With all the problems we have, having visited the Soviet Union, the Russian Republic and Communist China (when they were still in Mao suits), I know those countries are mostly little more than giant prisons and we are still (again for now) the good guys. Nevertheless, I am increasingly concerned we are creating our own "digital prison" that will make Darkness at Noon seem like child's play. At least in Arthur Koestler's novel of the Stalinist purge trials the inmates could communicate by tapping on the walls. What do we do?
Onward and upward,

Apple and Samsung say they have already fixed the vulnerabilities with their systems. Personally, I'm not all that confident.

Exit the matrix.

People complain about corporate and government spying yet they refuse to take the simple steps necessary to eliminate the problem. They refuse to do without all the modern "conveniences and services" that enables this spying. They are willing slaves to their devices.

Just a few short years ago people got along just fine without cable tv, cell phones, social media, the internet, credit cards or online banking. Contrary to what most think, you don't need any of this garbage and can live well without it.

You don't have to live like a caveman. Think old school ...60-80's technology still works.

I've watched it. As usual hollyweird takes a good idea and turns it into dumb bullshit.

Former Intel Officer: Ex-NSA Officials Carried Out DNC Hack to Expose Hillary Disgruntled operatives used technique to ensure Russia would be blamed

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com - March 9, 2017

The DNC hack was carried out by former NSA officials who wanted to expose Hillary Clinton, but then it was made to look as if the Russians were responsible, according to former intelligence officer Lieutenant Colonel Tony Shaffer.

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s show last night, Shaffer told Hannity that the DNC hack and the Podesta email hack, which Democrats blamed on Russia, were actually carried out by disgruntled ex-intel officers who wanted to bring down Hillary Clinton.

“Sean, we did it. Not me, but our guys, former members of NSA, retired intelligence officers used these tools to break in there and get the information out. That’s what the Democrats don’t want to talk about because it doesn’t fit their narrative,” said Shaffer.

Hannity asked Shaffer if the hack was carried out “using the malware techniques that they put the Russians’ fingerprints on, in other words you’re telling me this whole Russian story that the media’s been running with for months and months and months that it was our people that did it and they just put the fingerprints of the Russians on it?”

“That’s right,” responded Shaffer, adding, “the evidence is not that the Russians did it, the evidence is that a Russian tool was used….conserned Americans fed up with the Clintons doing things I think were the ones who actually got in there and broke the information out and gave it to Wikileaks.”

Shaffer said that he had given this information to reporters but that they “don’t seem to be interested in going and checking this out.”

Shaffer’s claim that Russian fingperints could have been left on the attack to disguise the actual culprits is backed up by information released as part of Wikileaks’ ‘Vault 7’ document dump.

The documents reveal that the CIA collected a number of cyber-attack techniques under the codename Umbrage which were stolen from malware produced in other countries, including Russia.

“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,” reported Wikileaks.

The Tin Foil Hatters Were Right Again: ‘CIA Admits to Hacking Cars and Trucks for Undetectable Assassinations’

Mac Slavo
March 9th, 2017
SHTFplan.com


With the advent of computerized cars came warnings that hackers could remotely compromise vehicle controls systems and gain access to core driving features like brakes and steering. Several incidents over the last couple of years suggest that such nefarious activity has already taken place, with many citing the death of journalist Michael Hastings, and more recently, the deaths of a high profile oil executive and the personal chauffeur of Vladimir Putin.

For the most part, those “accidents” were never investigated as possible assassinations utilizing cyber attacks, because the notion that such a thing could actually happen is almost unbelievable for most. But the recent Vault 7 Wikileaks release, suggests that not only is it possible to break into vehicles using these techniques, it is a strategy that has been actively pursued by the Central Intelligence Agency.

Joe Joseph reports via The Daily Sheeple Youtube Channel:

Inside the Wikileaks dump there’s talk of the CIA basically making the admission that they plan to hack cars and trucks as a way to carry out undetectable assassinations… This all appears to be verified… If you take a look at years past you’ll find, all of a sudden these mysterious car crashes… the tin foil hatters out there were right after all…

Disgruntled intelligence agency people sounds about right. I always sensed that Edward Snowden has really been the front man for a more cautious group.
