    Russia sees their asset (Trump) falling apart and are doing everything to control the news. It's a hail-mary pass.

    Today we have seen over 2.5M Russian controlled Twitter bots swarming out to block as many anti Trump twitter accounts that are reporting on anything pertaining to Trump, Trump Jr. and Russians.

    Currently Trump Followers have climbed to 1.8M in just under four weeks AND all are non human bots that is averaging 450K per week and that costs a lot of money to create even on the criminal side of twitter.

    This is a concentrated attack against non Trump supporters on Twitter AND Twitter Support has remained largely silent.....WHY is that.

    This is the third type of Russian twitter attack in the last ten days...

    There is now a true Russian social media info war and it is up front and in your face and the US government also says nothing.
    Seems anyone criticizing Putins invasion of Ukraine is on the list. Mine was locked out early this morning.

    There is a concentrated attempt by Russian trolls and bots to block all anti Trump and proUkraine Twitter accounts

    For the last three months my IT company, together with German partners, @bellingcat, DFLab and tens of twitter users have been literally in a state of open non violent bot army war and believe me they do exist and Russia is extremely good at using them for disinformation, propaganda, spamming and criminal hacking.

    This has now reached a certain sophistication that is not normal on the part of Russian intel services so that one can actually use the term open info war fought 24 x 7 X 365 for the heart and soul of a society

    Since the Russia infowar thread is closed I will post all links that are available on this thread as it does apply to malware, disinformation and propaganda and hacking all tied into one namely bots.

    Enjoy the reading and hopefully one can learn what really Russian infowarfare looks like in the 21st century

    Could terrorists hijack an airliner remotely by hacking into its cockpit controls, putting its fate in their hands?
    This question is being asked because of the revelation that a team of cyber experts at the Department of Homeland Security successfully hacked into the avionics of a commercial airplane parked at an airport as part of a test.
    The problem is that nobody with knowledge of aviation cyber security is sure of how vulnerable airplanes are to such an attack—and some believe that the DHS test has simply added to the confusion and created needless alarm.
    A Boeing spokesman told The Daily Beast: “We witnessed the test and can say unequivocally that there was no hack of the airplane’s flight control systems.”
    Information about the extent of the test is restricted and there is a strong feeling among hacking experts that the full extent of the threat will remain underestimated—as they claim it has been for years.

    Is this all connected to this Russian RT translated Kommersant news from 2012?

    Third, and probably most important, of the systems is Storm-12 – its task is to automatically spread the necessary information through the blogosphere, as well as “information support of operations with pre-prepared scenarios of influence on mass audience in social networks.”

    The first two systems are to be ready by the end of 2012 and the third by 2013.

    Comment to my last post. SVR tender timing seems to be directly connected to Putin's 2011. december Bolotnaya and spring 2012 mass protest problem. Putin's people failed to control social-networking platforms. Due to technical and political reasons especially Facebook and Twitter. 2016. US elections show they have found modus operandi.

    You people in the Peanut Gallery thought I was kidding. Anna Chapman's probably already filling out the Amazon . com order page.

    A British company has released the first pictures of a ‘smart condom’ which collects very intimate data about the sex life of anyone brave enough to wear it. The device is called the i.Con and can detect STIs as well as sending data about a sex session straight to the wearer’s smartphone.

    (CNN)White House homeland security adviser Tom Bossert said Monday the United States believes North Korea was behind the "WannaCry" cyberattack earlier this year.
    "After careful investigation, the US today publicly attributes the massive 'WannaCry' cyberattack to North Korea," Bossert wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed.
    He continued, "The attack was widespread and cost billions, and North Korea is directly responsible."

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Russian cyberspies pursuing the secrets of military drones and other sensitive U.S. defense technology tricked key contract workers into exposing their email to theft, an Associated Press investigation has found.
    What ultimately may have been stolen is uncertain, but the hackers clearly exploited a national vulnerability in cybersecurity: poorly protected email and barely any direct notification to victims.
    The hackers known as Fancy Bear, who also intruded in the U.S. election, went after at least 87 people working on militarized drones, missiles, rockets, stealth fighter jets, cloud-computing platforms or other sensitive activities, the AP found.

    LOS ANGELES — Buyer beware. If you’ve snapped up a smart TV, with built-in Netflix, YouTube, Hulu and other Web connections, heads up on this warning — your smart TV could make you vulnerable to hackers and is probably monitoring more of your viewing than you realize.
    Consumer Reports just analyzed smart TVs from five big U.S. TV brands — Samsung, LG, Sony, TCL and Vizio — and found several problems. All can track what consumers watch, and two of the brands failed a basic security test.
    How bad is the security? So poor, according to its report, that hackers were able to take over complete remote control of the TVs from Samsung and TCL's branded Roku TV, which included changing channels, upping the volume, installing new apps and playing objectionable content from YouTube.
    "What we found most disturbing about this was the relative simplicity of" hacking in, says Glenn Derene, Consumer Reports' senior director of content.
