Hired by the DNC to investigate the hacking attack against them earlier this year, CrowdStrike has claimed “high confidence” that the hacking was carried out by the Russian military, because of certain similarities between the malware on the DNC computers and previously known malware.
The company says that the malware a similar to a form of tracking malware which targeted the phones of Ukrainian army personnel back in 2014, using an app meant to target for Ukrainian artillery as a point of ingress, and revealing the locations of Ukrainian troops.
The two forms of malware obviously can’t be identical, since one is for an Android phone and the other is targeting servers. It’s not totally clear how similar these two forms of malware actually are, as CrowdStrike just describes them as “linked.”
Yet this link may well be built heavily around pre-conceived notions of Russian involvement in both cases, assuming that malware benefiting the rebels in East Ukraine must be Russian military in origin, and taking the existing assumption that the Russian were behind hacking the Democrats to link the two incidents.

In other news – the Russians are also responsible for global warming, the Zika epidemic, and HRC’s advanced Parkinson’s disease…
Try looking in the mirror to find what went wrong…. “Me…..?????????”
And exposing all their dirt and lies is a public service… to mankind.. The job sadly includes the ability to extinguish all lfe. The woman is psycho…. Dangerous……. And apparently not well also.. Question, was the VP worse or better…???? Thank G-d we will never need to find out…..
These corrupted two party systems need too go if we are to survive and have any hope. The lesser of two evils is way to evil in this MIRVED world…..
They were hired by the DNC so of course they’re going to say it was a hack (no proof necessary, of course) because, well, just because. And, of course it was the Russians (no proof necessary, of course) because, well, just because.
It’s been a very long time since this supposed event happened and someone, anyone, bothered to ask for some sort of proof.
If Crowdstrike is so friggin’ good and their confidence is so friggin’ “high” then they should put their “proof” out as evidence that 1. it was the Russians, and 2. Crowdstrike knows what they’re doing Surely they don’t just expect everyone to take them at their word, do they? They DO have a client to protect/serve, right? BTW, it seems I remember reading somewhere that they hired out of the FBI senior management team once. No conflict there, I guess, because the FBI always tells the public the truth…right?
It’s interesting, alright, the levels to which they are taking the insanity to “prove” the Russians did something which the Sources of the News to Begin With say was done by an insider. Russophobia is contagious among the Democrats. If Hilary’s delusions were enough to keep her from becoming president, the continuing delusions of the party en masse will probably be enough to wreck their party’s credibility for years.
CrowdStrike knows what they need to say to keep the dollars rolling in.
Probably something like both pieces of code have comments that use the word “the”. Obviously therefore the same coder wrote both pieces of software.
If the Republican Congress wants to have some fun, they should launch a through investigation into the death of DNC staffer Seth Rich. Who was killed only a short time after the leaks of the DNC email. The Democrat-controlled DC police have been trying to call it an ‘attempted robbery’, even though nothing was taken after the man was gunned down and laying there helpless.
The messages with the leaks always sounded like a disgruntled Bernie supporter within the DNC who saw the corruption that prevented democracy and wanted to expose it. Multiple reports along those lines keep coming out.
But of course they are ignored by the crowd who really, really, really wants to destroy the world in a nuclear war.
Real power is when you can commit murder, everyone knows you did it, and yet people are afraid to investigate …
It’s hard to imagine this private company has better insight in the matter as the NSA.
All of this is an over-played narrative that never made sense, and quite frankly served to distract the sheeples about the CONTENT of the exposed emails..
The CONENT of the emails reveals just how corrupt and criminal the DNC and the Clintons are…
What it really does is support my off-the-cuff hypothesis that UKRAINIAN hackers were behind everything in an attempt to frame Russia. This is a perfectly good hypothesis because 1) Ukrainians speak Russian, 2) Ukraine intelligence has hackers, like every other state, and 3) the motive is obvious. If CrowdStrike knows about the Russian military app, then so does Ukraine intelligence. Using it would be a perfect way to frame Russia for the hacks.
The fact that CrowdStrike seems oblivious to this possibility shows that their real intent is to jump on the anti-Russia bandwagon for two reasons: 1) an anti-Russia agenda held by their ex-Federal agent officers, and 2) boost the PR value of being involved in the hack investigation for the benefit of corporate sales – probably the latter more than the former.
