More anti-Russian hysteria, as members of the press swallow information from sources uncritically, Russian hackers penetrated US electricty grid through a utility in Vermont, officials say

Oh, that sounds positively frightening!

The article of course links this to the supposed hack of the US election, the Russian hacking operation.

Quote

A code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been detected within the system of a Vermont utility, according to U.S. officials.

Plus local Democrats issuing statements where they thumped their chests and engaged in the tough-fellow posturing that some people indulge in these days when talking about those wily Russians.

Quote

Vermonters and all Americans should be both alarmed and outraged that one of the world’s leading thugs, Vladimir Putin, has been attempting to hack our electric grid, which we rely upon to support our quality of life, economy, health, and safety. This episode should highlight the urgent need for our federal government to vigorously pursue and put an end to this sort of Russian meddling.
says Gov. Shumlin.
Plus according to Sen. Leahy

Quote



The WaPo article comes to the most sinister conclusions and quotes anonymous "officials" and makes it sound like the United States of America was a few button pushes away from having the power grid shut down. Reactions from media creatures was about what you would expect, taking this story and blaming "Mad" Vlad Putin.



Later the story was reported in outlets like Reuters as "A malware code associated with Russian hackers has reportedly been detected within the system of a Vermont electric utility.”

What came out was that Burlington Electric, the utility company that was supposedly hacked went and checked their computers after receiving a notice from DHS about the malware code found in the DNC system and...malware was found. On a single laptop, not connected to their system at all. The WaPo didn't even bother to contact them about their story, so Burlington Electric made their own statement to the local paper

Quote

"Last night, U.S. utilities were alerted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of a malware code used in Grizzly Steppe, the name DHS has applied to a Russian campaign linked to recent hacks," said Mike Kanarick, spokesman for Burlington Electric Department. "We acted quickly to scan all computers in our system for the malware signature. We detected the malware in a single Burlington Electric Department laptop not connected to our organization’s grid systems. We took immediate action to isolate the laptop and alerted federal officials of this finding. Our team is working with federal officials to trace this malware and prevent any other attempts to infiltrate utility systems. We have briefed state officials and will support the investigation fully."

Now the claim, such as it is, has been walked back to showing a "risk to the US electrical grid."

Saturday: The Washington Post reports Russia hacked the Vermont power grid.

Tuesday: Sugar-coating it as an "update" Washington Post reports that, ahem, org made a false positive on that laptop that wasn't even connected to the grid with common ad network malware.

He makes a chain of tweets. Claims to have bitly data on the accounts targets, that is no longer public.

The issue is less about whether Russia did it or not and more about the significance thereof. I'm wary of conceding that aggression against Russia would be somehow justified if it could be shown they actually pulled the hack off. It incentivizes spergs like the guy in the above tweetstorm to make the argument about technobabble. Conflict with Russia doesn't do us any good, and even liberals don't really give a f**k about Russia abridging our sovereignty or whatever so much as they're pissed Hillary lost and want to see heads roll. They think they can get proles to turn against Trump if they wrap themselves in the flag hard enough (they're practically mummified at this point). Two salient points are:

1. DNC got hacked? Sounds like a DNC problem to me. These attacks are a fairly routine part of intelligence collection and certainly any halfway advanced country tries to influence elections to their benefit. DNC apparently did dick to protect themselves despite this. Their incompetence is a weak justification to sabre-rattle with a nuclear power.

2. Making deals :trump: with Russia > Revenge for Hillary's failures.

What does it matter if the source for Podesta was Russian, or even an agent of the Russian government? At the end of the day the premises the left-cuck coalition are trying to get you to accept are that releasing unsavory emails showing internal party machinations to manipulate a primary delegitimizes the results of the general election because it turned off that party's voters... you don't need to accept these premises, the Democrats wouldn't be in this mess regardless of the nefarious Slav if they didn't do it in the first place.

Was on the phone earlier.

The phishing email uses a nitly link. From this link, you can extract the adress it was target at. The hacker has an account on bitly and from there you can get all the other adresses that were targeted ("about 1800"). A mix of US government, politicians, defense contractors and journalists with an interest in Russia.

I guess it stands on that last claim, which incidentally is the trickiest to prove with this ammount of accounts

So, that discredited WaPo story about Russia hacking US utilities occurred because officials haphazardly leaked false info to the Post and they didn't bother to check with the utility company or anything before running with the story

Bonus hilarity, the WaPo blogger who posted this tries to act like he is an independent voice even as he takes a big, long pull off of his' bosses' figurative collective cock with the last paragraph.

Quote

The Erik Wemple Blog today asked top Post officials for interviews on the screw-ups, though we didn’t get any sit-downs. Kris Coratti, a spokeswoman for the paper, issued this statement: “We have corrected the story, prominently displayed the correct information after further reporting, evaluated what transpired, and had the appropriate discussions internally to make sure something similar does not occur again.”

“Again” would be the third time, considering that The Post was forced to publish an editor’s note over a Thanksgiving-weekend story fingering Russia for assisting in the spread of fake news.

The missteps mar an otherwise spectacular run for The Post, which nailed exclusive after exclusive in the presidential campaign. With traffic surging and editorial ranks growing, The Post, you might suppose, would have the self-confidence to sit for an extensive interview about its occasional failings. Apparently not.

I watched the Senate hearing today (Good to see McCain and Graham looking well-rested after their Latvian Gaycation) and couldn't help but remember Clapper telling America that the NSA was not spying on it, right before Snowden showed that was a lie.

Please correct me if I'm wrong but the issue here is that the Russians may or may not have been responsible for exposing documents that (1) were damaging and the DNC was dumb enough to put in writing (2) the DNC was too dumb to protect properly and (3) the DNC was too dumb not to flat-out disavow...how is this not purely an exposure of DNC fuckups, regardless of who's responsible, as opposed to HACKING THE ELECTION

Yep, a perfect example of our modern media's gaslighting program, and of how hapless so-called conservatives facilitate it:  no one has made a serious assertion that the vote totals were changed; no one has even made a serious argument that the various leaks contained inaccurate information.  Yet the average Democrat likely believes that Putin directly altered the result of the election, because every headline, every article, every TV segment, describes the story as, "Russia hacked the election!!!!!"

I just watched a lengthy segment on Fox News with Catherine Herridge waxing dramatic about how this Intelligence report on Russia is the strongest worded report she's seen.  I generally like Catherine Herridge well enough, and of course she does finally get around to mentioning that a) the report is essentially a collection of bald assertions, completely bereft of evidence because all of the evidence is classified, and b) that the Russians didn't interfere with the vote tally -- but by the time she gets around to those two crucial facts, everyone's been subjected to 20 minutes of "Report: Putin ordered hacking" on the under-screen crawl.

Then you have the usual assortment of Neocons jumping on the inquiry bandwagon, lending credence to the parade of solemn-faced liberals grimly vowing to end this grievous threat to our "electoral process."  These are supposed to be Trump's allies, and Fox is the putatively conservative cable news network.

The end result is an electorate, or post-electorate in this case, that is completely misinformed.  And those who aren't misinformed end up looking like crackpots or shills if we concede that the hacking did happen, but it wasn't actually germane to the election.  (Just kidding; people like us usually proceed straight to mockery.)

In fact, all of the leaks from the DNC and Podesta's emails were authentic, and extremely damaging.  They revealed a pattern of corrupt behavior and (perhaps more damaging) a disgustingly supercilious and cavalier attitude among Clinton and her courtiers.  If Putin did expose that information to the American people, then he provided a public service.  

And in fact, the only evidence we have of direct voter fraud implicates the Democrats.

But most important of all is our daily reminder:  these same f****ts huffing smelling salts over the scandalous prospect that a foreign power "influenced" our election have spent the last several decades importing foreigners to vote in our elections.
