Submission + - SPAM: Attempts to Frame Assange as a Pedophile and Russian spy 1

Okian Warrior writes: Earlier today the website DailyKos reported on a smear campaign plot to falsely accuse Julian Assange of pedophilia. An unknown entity posing as an internet dating agency prepared an elaborate plot to falsely claim that Julian Assange received US$1M from the Russian government and a second plot to frame him sexually molesting an eight year old girl.

Here is the description of the plot from Mr Assange’s legal team.

Submission + - Democrat Operatives Caused Violence at Trump Rallies, Framed Sanders Supporters ( 15

Xenographic writes: A new video has come out detailing how Democratic operatives created violence at Trump rallies. You may remember that they then framed Sanders supporters for those protests. This video is notable because one of the operatives, Zulema Rodriguez, can be identified in videos of the Arizona protests at 17:35 in this independent video as well as at 10:30 in the first video link. Furthermore, you look at the FEC records of disbursements to her and see that she was paid by Finally, this again can be corroborated with the Wikileaks dump, specifically this email. For those too lazy to browse all the links, you can see Zulema's appearance in both videos in this image and note that it's the same person down to the tiny mole on her chest.

And your proof that it was Russian's is what again? TrustConnect's flawed and oft repeated wild guess they call analysis? Or maybe you're referring to the various articles, and apparently "anonymous government officials" quoting TrustConnect's guesses. Oh maybe you mean SecureWorks best guess as well (which was recently posted here). Blaming Russia is both dangerous and counter productive in all cases. It's simply a way to distract the stupids from the actual information which has been released (by both DCLeaks and Wikileaks).

The ip range shows some staging server

The IP shows a public Russian VPN provider. Slashdot offers VPN's that operate in such countries as well, does that mean those countries are responsible?

Code litter left behind is so well understood by private sector security contractors that they should have been able to detect access in real time.

There are lots of hacking tools from all over the place floating around the dark web, if you know where to look. This doesn't mean that the Russian government had any hand in it.

The time zone fits working hours in Russia.

Most basement dwellers as Hilary calls them tend to work the same hours as average Russians. Most Russians that work technical positions generally work closer to US hours (because we pay more). I know this first hand as I have worked with Russians and Ukrainians for over a decade now on various projects in the high technology fields.

Some person has the skill to evaded social engineering during an interview and thats a sure sign of a Russian background, education or coaching.

What? Really? You really think this????

All that made it to the press and got passed around as fact. The press quotes contractors and unnamed gov officials. US gov workers and supporters then quote the press reporting on what the contractors found. The US gov then hints at what the press reported and experts found as reality with vague wordy paragraphs about code fragments. The US media can then quote the gov as confirming their security contractors. One big echo chamber. Code that is well understood and risks been on AV watch lists in the private sector is not much use.

You realize that Russia has nuclear weapons right? And that we're already on shaky ground with this with the massive fuck-ups by our feckless president and former secretary of state right? In what world is escalating this going to do anything other than get us into a war?

And once again, totally ignore WHAT has been released, that's not important that all of this massive corruption is on full display, what's more important is tying evil racist woman hating Trump to the evil Russian h4kz0rz.

Submission + - The Clinton Foundation was hacked (

colin_faber writes: After checking up on the Guccifer 2.0 wordpress blog I was surprised to read that this hacker has (apparently) successfully hacked the Clinton Foundation and released a cache of documents. The hacker writes: "Many of you have been waiting for this, some even asked me to do it.

So, this is the moment. I hacked the Clinton Foundation server and downloaded hundreds of thousands of docs and donors’ databases.

Hillary Clinton and her staff don’t even bother about the information security. It was just a matter of time to gain access to the Clinton Foundation server."
