WikiLeaks latest data dump
The CIA can engage in "false flag" cyber attacks which portray Russia as the assailant.
And if they can do that, so can other hackers!
Discussing the CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group, the WikiLeaks' source said the CIA "collects and maintains a substantial library of attack techniques 'stolen' from malware produced in other states including the Russian Federation."
"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 key loggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques."
This fact makes the Russia / Democrat National Committee hacking allegations meaningless!
