QUESTION: Was Yesterday’s Amazon, Twitter & Reddit Hack PRACTICE For ELECTION Day?

We have seen how vulnerable some of our systems can be to large-scale cyber-attacks. Could this be a dry run for something bigger?

Keith Olberman floated the possibility:

Political commentor [sic] Keith Olbermann even raised the possibility it could be a precursor to an attack on election day.

‘Say, not to panic anybody, but what if the (attacks) today were practice for 11/8 ?’ he tweeted.

DailyMail

No, Keith. Not to ‘panic’. Not to ‘manipulate’ either, right? Pre-emptively ‘disproving’ voter fraud allegations as ‘faked’ by the ‘Russians’.

Oh look. Here’s one now. We’ve clearly learned that there’s been no corrupting political influence on the DOJ, or the FBI, or the IRS, or the … well, you get the point. So we can be thoroughly confident that there is NO political influence behind this ‘anonymous’ statement.

U.S. intelligence and law enforcement officials are warning that hackers with ties to Russia’s intelligence services could try to undermine the credibility of the presidential election by posting documents online purporting to show evidence of voter fraud.

The officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said however, that the U.S. election system is so large, diffuse and antiquated that hackers would not be able to change the outcome of the Nov. 8 election.

But hackers could post documents, some of which might be falsified, that are designed to create public perceptions of widespread voter fraud, the officials said. —DailyMail

Don’t even suggest that it could be a preemptive political ‘gaslighting‘ attempt. That would be ‘absurd’.

Pay no attention to the cozy relationship between Democrats and media. Or to people paid to disturb the peace at Trump rallies. Or any of the Wikileaks reports. Or the illegal publishing of unreleased Tax information. None of those things matter. The Russians. (Who Dems have an undisclosed and cozy … FINANCIAL … relationship with, by the way.)

While it is clear the shutdowns were part of a coordinated attack, there is disagreement on where those attacks came from.

Wikileaks believes it was people friendly to them, and reacting to the censorship of Julian Assange by political interference by US government officials.

On the other hand, one group has tried to claim responsibility:

Despite WikiLeaks’ claims its supporters were behind the attacks, members of a shadowy collective that calls itself New World Hackers claimed responsibility via Twitter.

They said they organized networks of connected ‘zombie’ computers called botnets that threw a staggering 1.2 terabits per second of data at the Dyn-managed servers.

‘We didn’t do this to attract federal agents, only test power,’ two collective members who identified themselves as ‘Prophet’ and ‘Zain’ told an AP reporter via Twitter direct message exchange.

‘Prophet’ said hacktivists of the broad, more amorphous Anonymous collective piled on in the third wave of attacks on Friday afternoon.

It was not immediately possible to verify the claims.

Dyn officials said they have received no claim of responsibility, but are working with law enforcement. —DailyMail

It’s looking like we’ve got a wild couple of weeks ahead of us. Who knows what else we are in for.

Share if you think Dems have been getting bolder with their vote-rigging.
