So you buy into those conspiracy theories propagated by the Clintons..

Nope. I am also not some credulous dimwitted techno illiterate politico-religious fanatic in the way that you so often appear to present yourself (hey, if you want to try to frame a meme, then I am happy to present a mirror).

Do you have any evidence at all to justify your belief?

FFS: I’m a programmer who also runs websites, mail servers, and network systems both for work, for home, and for this site. I’ve done so at various level and with various systems since the mid-80s while the net has been growing. I am about as interested in political personalities as I am interested in reality shows or celebrity. My political ideas are almost entirely structural and tend to be being reluctantly socialist mainly because unconstrained market forces are completely useless at longer term planning.

I’m also, when it comes to computer systems, completely uninterested in ‘evidence’ that you could take to court a decade after the intrusions happen. Only a complete technically illiterate jerkoff like you would be concerned about that kind of crap. It allows for the kind of ‘plausible deniability’ that so clearly makes your panties go wet with excitement as you engage in meaningless and simple minded ‘debate’ about the number of pins and angel can dance on… In other words, a legally based argument

I’m interested in viable and likely threats. It doesn’t matter if it happens to be teenage script bunnies or opportunistic privacy illiterate like Slater and co, spam artists, security agencies, troll gangs, or just simply minded fools like you.

With technical threats I look at the commentary around the nets by people concerned with network and server intrusions, not to mention the continuous and ongoing attempts to intrude into my systems. There is a hell of lot of it from various players. But intrusions from Russia, China, and the US being towards the top of the pile along with some bit-players from other areas. Russia and the US are the major politically interested parties and this isn’t hard for even my systems to track those kinds of attempts on my systems.

It is

my opinion that the likely source of the documents from the DNC and other sources presented by Wikileaks just prior to the 2016 election was most likely sourced from the Russian security and given to Wikileaks specifically to try to get Donald Trump elected. That also happens to the general belief around the tech-head areas of the net as well as every moderately credible security agency and company, both public and internet, that has looked at it.

It follows the standard Russian hacker patterns that we have all become so accustomed to over the last 20 years. Just like the same patterns we see for the Chinese, the USA, spammers, google, and whoever. It also, at a political level, was far better for the Russian government to have a idiot like Trump as US president than a hawk like Hillary Clinton. This is hardly news. That was all that you saw prior to the election from the Russian media and even from parts of the Russian government.

Now I have no idea of how you think the net operates, but we don’t work off evidence when we secure against threats. We work off threat levels and tend to get somewhat draconian about protecting our systems based on probabilities. Which means that everyone has been been securing against each of these threats as they arise.

Now I don’t expect that very dimwitted indoctrinated fool like yourself can understand this concept of people making up their own mind. Personally I think that you seem to require your opinions to be spoon feed for you from something the Intercept because you your brain appears to be quite short of exercise.

However I suggest that on this site you respect the opinions of others while disagreeing with them. That alternative is that I may indulge myself in actions to express my opinions about people trying to shut down robust debate about their opinions. I really can’t afford the time to write highly simplified explanations for you every day.
