    From the Vault 7 press release -

    Quote UMBRAGE
    The CIA's hand crafted hacking techniques pose a problem for the agency. Each technique it has created forms a "fingerprint" that can be used by forensic investigators to attribute multiple different attacks to the same entity.

    This is analogous to finding the same distinctive knife wound on multiple separate murder victims. The unique wounding style creates suspicion that a single murderer is responsible. As soon one murder in the set is solved then the other murders also find likely attribution.

    The CIA's Remote Devices Branch's UMBRAGE group 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 keyloggers, password collection, webcam capture, data destruction, persistence, privilege escalation, stealth, anti-virus (PSP) avoidance and survey techniques.
    Note that WL is saying the CIA can, not is misdirecting attribution. The Intercept's article below agrees this can be done but is saying the files say the purpose is to save time.

    WIKILEAKS FILES SHOW THE CIA REPURPOSING HACKING CODE TO SAVE TIME, NOT TO FRAME RUSSIA

    Quote ATTRIBUTING HACKING ATTACKS to the correct perpetrators is notoriously difficult. Even the U.S. government, for all its technical resources and expertise, took warranted criticism for trying to pin a high-profile 2014 cyberattack on North Korea, and more recently faced skepticism when it blamed Russia for hacks against top Democrats during the 2016 election.

    In those cases, government officials said they based their attribution in part on software tools the hackers employed, which had been used in other cyberattacks linked to North Korea and Russia. But that sort of evidence is not conclusive; hackers have been known to intentionally use or leave behind software and other distinctive material linked to other groups as part of so-called false flag operations intended to falsely implicate other parties. Researchers at Russian digital security firm Kaspersky Lab have documented such cases.

    On Tuesday, Wikileaks published a large cache of CIA documents that it said showed the agency had equipped itself to run its own false-flag hacking operations. The documents describe an internal CIA group called UMBRAGE that Wikileaks said was stealing the techniques of other nation-state hackers to trick forensic investigators into falsely attributing CIA attacks to those actors. According to Wikileaks, among those from whom the CIA has stolen techniques is the Russian Federation, suggesting the CIA is conducting attacks to intentionally mislead investigators into attributing them to Vladimir Putin.

    “With UMBRAGE and related projects, the CIA can not 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,” Wikileaks writes in a summary of its CIA document dump

    It’s a claim that seems intended to shed doubt on the U.S. government’s attribution of Russia in the DNC hack; the Russian Federation was the only nation specifically named by Wikileaks as a potential victim of misdirected attribution. It’s also a claim that some media outlets have accepted and repeated without question.

    “WikiLeaks said there’s an entire department within the CIA whose job it is to ‘misdirect attribution by leaving behind the fingerprints’ of others, such as hackers in Russia,” CNN reported without caveats.

    It would be possible to leave such fingerprints if the CIA were re-using unique source code written by other actors to intentionally implicate them in CIA hacks, but the published CIA documents don’t say this. Instead they indicate the UMBRAGE group is doing something much less nefarious.

    They say UMBRAGE is borrowing hacking “techniques” developed or used by other actors to use in CIA hacking projects. This is intended to save the CIA time and energy by copying methods already proven successful. If the CIA were actually re-using source code unique to a specific hacking group this could lead forensic investigators to mis-attribute CIA attacks to the original creators of the code. But the documents appear to say the UMBRAGE group is writing snippets of code that mimic the functionality of other hacking tools and placing it in a library for CIA developers to draw on when designing custom CIA tools.

    “The goal of this repository is to provide functional code snippets that can be rapidly combined into custom solutions,” notes a document in the cache that discusses the project. “Rather than building feature-rich tools, which are often costly and can have significant CI value, this effort focuses on developing smaller and more targeted solutions built to operational specifications.”

    Robert Graham, CEO of Errata Security, agrees that the CIA documents are not talking about framing Russia or other nations.

    “What we can conclusively say from the evidence in the documents is that they’re creating snippets of code for use in other projects and they’re reusing methods in code that they find on the internet,” he told The Intercept. “Elsewhere they talk about obscuring attacks so you can’t see where it’s coming from, but there’s no concrete plan to do a false flag operation. They’re not trying to say ‘We’re going to make this look like Russia’.”

    The UMBRAGE documents do mention looking at source code, but these reference widely available source code for popular tools, not source code unique to, say, Russian Federation hackers. And the purpose of examining the source code seems to be for purposes of inspiring the CIA code developers in developing their code, not so they can copy/paste it into CIA tools.

    It’s not unusual for attackers of all persuasion — nation-state and criminal — to copy the techniques of other hackers. Success breeds success. A month after Stuxnet was discovered in June 2010, someone created a copycat exploit to attack the same Windows vulnerability Stuxnet exploited.

    Components the UMBRAGE project has borrowed from include keyloggers; tools for capturing passwords and webcam imagery; data-destruction tools; components for gaining escalated privileges on a machine and maintaining stealth and persistent presence; and tools for bypassing anti-virus detection.

    Some of the techniques UMBRAGE has borrowed come from commercially available tools. The documents mention Dark Comet, a well-known remote access trojan, or RAT, that can capture screenshots and keystrokes and grab webcam imagery, among other things. The French programmer who created Dark Comet stopped distributing it after stories emerged that the Syrian government was using it to spy on dissidents. Another tool UMBRAGE highlights is RawDisk, a tool made by the commercial software company Eldos, which contains drivers that system administrators can use to securely delete information from hard drives.

    But legitimate tools are often used by hackers for illegitimate purposes, and RawDisk is no different. It played a starring role in the Sony hack in 2014, where the attackers used it to wipe data from Sony’s servers.

    It was partly the use of RawDisk that led forensic investigators to attribute the Sony hack to North Korea. That’s because RawDisk had been previously used in 2011 “Dark Seoul” hack attacks that wiped the hard drives and master boot records of three banks and two media companies in South Korea. South Korea blamed the attack on North Korea and China. But RawDisk was also used in the destructive Shamoon attack in 2012 that wiped data from 30,000 systems at Saudi Aramco. That attack wasn’t attributed to North Korea, however; instead U.S. officials attributed it to Iran.

    All of this highlights how murky attribution can be, particularly when focused only on the tools or techniques a group uses, and how the CIA is not doing anything different than other groups in borrowing tools and techniques.

    “Everything they’re referencing [in the CIA documents] is extremely public code, which means the Russians are grabbing the same snippets and the Chinese are grabbing them and the U.S. is grabbing,” says Graham. “So they’re all grabbing the same snippets of code and then they’re making their changes to it.”

    The CIA documents do talk elsewhere about using techniques to thwart forensic investigators and make it hard to attribute attacks and tools to the CIA. But the methods discussed are simply proper operational security techniques that any nation-state attackers would be expected to use in covert operations they don’t want attributed to them. The Intercept wasn’t able to find documents within the WikiLeaks cache that talk about tricking forensic investigators into attributing attacks to Russia. Instead they discuss do’s and don’ts of tradecraft, such as encrypting strings and configuration data in malware to prevent someone from reverse engineering the code, or removing file compilation timestamps to prevent investigators from making correlations between compilation times and the working hours of CIA hackers in the U.S.

    Researchers at anti-virus firms often use compilation times to determine where a malware’s creators might be located geographically if their files are consistently compiled during work hours that are distinctive to a region. For example, tools believed to have been created in Israel have shown compilation times on Sunday, which is a normal workday in Israel.

    The bottom line with the CIA data dump released by Wikileaks is that journalists and others should take care to examine statements made around them to ensure that they’re reporting accurately on the contents.
    Source.

    Hmm, perhaps it would have been better to not mention only Russia or to not mention Russia at all.

    CNN twisted WL's words.

    I've tweeted to the WikiLeaks task force and asked them if they agree with The Intercept's assessment and will update this post if I receive a reply (it seems reasonable to me but I lack the expertise to know). My tweet shows that it has a reply but I can't see it, hopefully it's just a troll I blocked.

    This is getting like a right old carry on , US/UK political propaganda has been more
    or less unchallenged since WW11 in the mainstream and when it is it is usually
    covered up in long winded investigations until it goes away or the sacrificial lamb is
    offered up. Now vault 7 is pointing the figure at the CIA and their partners GCHQ
    and other western intelligences they are now on damage limitation however stupid
    their argument they will not back down and most of the mainstream media are still
    towing ,its the Russians line.....




    Two contradictory stories from the spooks and the foreign secretary......





    GCHQ warns politicians about Russian hacking threat

    Attacks by Russian hackers could threaten British democracy, GCHQ has warned
    politicians.The spy agency's computer security chief has written to political parties
    offering advice on preventing hacks, according to The Sunday Times.

    US intelligence officials have accused the Kremlin of using cyber-attacks to
    influence the November election. But Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said there
    was so far no evidence of successful attacks in the UK.

    See? And what did I just post yesterday?

    Anybody who poses a serious threat to the globalist criminal network, "deep state" or whatever you want to call it, is working with the Russians. And the Russian government is of course the evil boogey man. That's where they'll push all of this. It didn't work right after the election while Obama was still president and it's damned sure not going to work now with Trump in command from the White House.

    Ex-CIA director denies WikiLeaks claims on domestic spying: ‘These tools wouldn’t be used against Americans’

    Quote According to a massive document dump from WikiLeaks, the CIA is spying on Americans through malware on cell phones and Samsung televisions. Former CIA director Michael Hayden told Stephen Colbert on Tuesday’s “Late Show” that the claim is false.

    “If they were, would you say yes?” Colbert asked. Hayden said he would. “Is that a true answer?” Colbert asked and Hayden said it was. “I don’t believe you.”

    Quote CIA Analyst – Trump Wiretap Was Probably Done Via British GCHQ
    Quote Posted by Sam Hunter (here)
    ... it is called ECHELON
    “ECHELON, originally a secret government code name, is a surveillance program (signals intelligence/SIGINT collection and analysis network) operated on behalf of the five signatory nations to the UKUSA Security Agreement[1]—Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States, also known as the Five Eyes.”

    Now see Bill Still – (less than 6 minutes)

    Some in this community are open to the possibility that "we are told" about these things in various ways... one being in feature films produced by Hollywood. Further speculation in relation to the reasons differs... some suggesting "they have to" because of some universal cosmic law. My own opinion is that this is done to pre-condition as much of the public as possible for when the inevitable occurs... the inevitable being that truthful information that the actuality of these activities is very, very real also actually becomes public. Sometimes I wonder if there is such a degree of confidence within the deep state that the "leaking" is actually intentional and timed.

    So consider this film that came out in the Fall of 2015 -

    Spectre

    “C campaigns for Britain to form "Nine Eyes", a global surveillance and intelligence co-operation initiative and uses his influence to close down the '00' section as he believes it to be outdated.”

    And now throw in the “device hacking” and consider the latest Bourne movie –

    Jason Bourne


    “The CIA director intends to use Deep Dream for real-time mass surveillance”

    More...

    "Dewey (the CIA Director) is scheduled to attend the convention for a public debate on privacy rights with Aaron Kalloor, the CEO of social media enterprise Deep Dream. Kalloor is the public face of corporate social responsibility in the Internet Age, but he has secretly been funded by Dewey. The CIA director intends to use Deep Dream for real-time mass surveillance alongside the latest incarnation of the CIA's targeted assassination 'Beta' program, known as "Iron Hand".

    my comments -

    The Deep Dream of the Deep State or as I like to call it…

    Boys (and girls) with their toys

    EDIT ADDED 2017-03-11 - This post by turiya is an important read...

    Quote This capability destroys the concept of evidence. The CIA can carry out a cyber attack or steal information and leave a fingerprint, so to speak, of the country or person it wants blamed. If the CIA can leave the fingerprint of an innocent party, we must assume the CIA can also put secret documents or child pornography on a person’s computer. Because of the CIA’s capability, henceforth we cannot know if any evidence presented in any trial against any defendant is real of faked.
    I feel the need to say this.

    I have nearly 40 years of civil law trial experience in the USA and New Mexico in particular. While I agree that what the CIA is capable of doing and has done may eventually have serious evidentiary implications in a few cases, it has no implications for 99.99% of the cases that will go to trial in the USA. When one considers that 90% of all civil cases settle or are dismissed (and a like percentage of criminal cases plea out or are dismissed) without ever going to trial, then a mere fraction of 1% of the cases will ever be impacted by the CIA's criminal actions. In other words, virtually no run-of-the mill routine cases that pass through the courts every day will be affected by CIA spying.

    But, importantly, there may be, and likely will be, some very high profile criminal prosecutions looming in the future, where the CIA spying will have important evidentiary implications in both criminal and civil trials.

    This is nearly a week old now (published on 7 March, just after Vault 7 was released) — but it may be worth noting as a pretty good first-reaction conversation with anti-establishment cybersecurity expert John McAfee.

    I get the feeling that Pence is rather dense to all of this stuff and unfortunately he can't be fired. The best we can hope for is for him to be redpilled.
    Assange just tweeted this from his personal account a bit over half an hour ago -

    Quote Clinton stated privately this month that she is quietly pushing for a Pence takeover. She stated that Pence is predictable hence defeatable.
    Quote Two IC officials close to Pence stated privately this month that they are planning on a Pence takeover. Did not state if Pence agrees.
    Tweets here and here.

    Thoughts?

    Meanwhile, I get the distinct impression Assange doesn't like Sasse -

    Quote I will not take fashion advice from the likes of Senator Sasse. #CIA #Vault7
    http://www.sasse.senate.gov/public/i...C-4946E14DAEAD

    Quote You can't hide who you are from an animal.
    On the left political prisoner @JulianAssange
    On the right fashion advisor Senator @BenSasse


    Tweets here and here.



    P.S. Assange doesn't have a blue tick, to verify it's his account see THIS tweet from the official WikiLeaks Twitter account. For those who aren't familiar with Twitter, if you click on the quoted tweet it will show you it's from Assange's account (click on his photo to go to his account).

    Here's Assange telling Jack (CEO of Twitter) that it's absurd they won't verify his account.

    Quote @jack This is absurd.

    Operation Mockingbird’s cover has been blown and the CIA attempt to control the
    news is failing badly. Cue Hollywood, with phony dramatic narratives and thinly
    veiled propaganda disguised as comedy with Trump and Alex Jones portrayed as
    doing what the CIA and MSM really do. Meanwhile, McCain & Hayden scoff at the
    idea that the intelligence community would monitor President-elect Trump and
    suggest that Roger Stone should be called before Congress to testify about Guccifer
    2.0. Roger Stone joins David Knight to debunk the latest conspiracy theory of John McCain.

    Virtually all the anti Trump press are ignoring all the evidence given on pro Trump

    press are joining in. It would be good if they discussed the 'Deep State' as much.

    I forgot about this the other day (sorry), Vault 7 covers the years 2013 - 2016, unlikely past activities are a concern.

    I hold both McAfee, and the "facts" and allegations he provides in this conversation, in lower regard .

    Here he's hyping the threat presented to us by the US intelligence agencies surveillance, and hyping the dangers of that surveillance. There's too much hyperbole, and insufficient detail or precision, in this conversation for my tastes.

    Well at least Pence realizes that people are watching him now and will be super pissed if he ever did try something like that.

    If it was Clinton vs Pence I'm pretty sure he would have lost, big league. Trump probably only picked him to satisfy party insiders anyway, and let's not forget that Pence defended Dennis Hastert. I don't know how deep the swamp goes but we've got our eyes on Mr. Pence as well.

    The only people from this administration I really trust at this point, as far as their intentions, are Bannon, Tillerson, Sessions, Mattis and Trump himself, though I don't agree with many of Sessions' and Mattis' policy positions. Watch Ivanka too. She is a killer, and I mean that in a good way. Watch out for her to become the real first woman president, probably running on the Democratic ticket, maybe in the 2030's or later. She's already got out of business and is positioning herself for the long haul.

    Buzzfeed Caught By Wikileaks Falsifying Information About Response To Vault 7 Release

    Quote In the wake of Wikileaks’ Vault 7 revelations, Buzzfeed has been caught by Wikileaks publishing false claims purportedly made by Apple that it had “patched the vulnerabilities mentioned in the Wikileaks dump of CIA cyber tools.” Wikileaks tweeted that Apple had not fixed any newly discovered vulnerabilities, labelling the claim “fake news.”

    Buzzfeed’s phrasing misleadingly encouraged an assumption that Apple had stated all of the vulnerabilities exposed by Vault 7 had been patched. However, the statement by Apple does not claim total coverage. In Buzzfeed’s own article Apple states: “…our initial analysis indicates that many of the issues leaked today were already patched in the latest iOS…” Apple’s claim merely stated that some of the exploits used by the CIA had been addressed in the event that they were organically discovered.

    The factually inaccurate claim comes on the heels of Buzzfeed’s disastrous January 2017 report claiming to have a dossier proving that the Russian government held blackmail on Donald Trump. The dossier was immediately labeled as falsified by Wikileaks based on the inaccurate style, facts and dates contained in the report. The Atlantic also ran a report where Trump’s lawyer, Michael Cohen, denied that he had ever been to either the Czech Republic or to Russia as the “dossier” published by Buzzfeed claimed.

    I didn't know Michael Hastings worked for Buzzfeed. I was amazed at how shameless they were after the Trump 'dossier' fiasco, like they weren't too concerned about the fallout, but now I think I'm beginning to understand why.

    Episode 274 – Crashes of Convenience: Michael Hastings (2013)

    Quote Michael Hastings was that rarest of breeds: a mainstream reporter who wasn’t afraid to rail against the system, kick back against the establishment, and bite the hand that feeds him. On the morning of June 18, 2013, he died in a fiery car crash. But now details are emerging that he was on the verge of breaking an important new story about the CIA, and believed he was being investigated by the FBI. Now even a former counter-terrorism czar is admitting Hastings’ car may have been cyber-hijacked. Join us this week on The Corbett Report as we explore the strange details surrounding the untimely death of Michael Hastings.
