John McAfee: Russia Did Not Hack The DNC

In case any of you believe that Hillary lost because Russia hacked the election, internet security guru John McAfee has a few words of advice for you.

In case any of you believe that Hillary lost because Russia hacked the election, internet security guru John McAfee has a few words of advice for you. 

Crazy, but brilliant, John said “if it looks like the Russians did it, then I can guarantee you it was not the Russians.”

“The Joint Analysis Report from the FBI contains an appendix that lists hundreds of IP addresses that were supposedly “used by Russian civilian and military intelligence services.”

While some of those IP addresses are from Russia, the majority are from all over the world, which means that the hackers constantly faked their location.

McAfee argues that the report is a “fallacy,” explaining that hackers can fake their location, their language, and any markers that could lead back to them. Any hacker who had the skills to hack into the DNC would also be able to hide their tracks, he said

If I was the Chinese and I wanted to make it look like the Russians did it, I would use Russian language within the code, I would use Russian techniques of breaking into the organization,” McAfee said, adding that, in the end, “there simply is no way to assign a source for any attack.”

However, McAfee does see a problem with the National Security Agency (NSA) being able to listen in on every conversation and read every text message and email of every American. Rather than focusing on disrupting the bad guys in foreign countries, McAfee thinks that “all of that effort has been placed on a country that is afraid of its own citizens.”

He claims that the only way he has been able to fully block the NSA from infecting his phone with spyware is by using a flip-phone too old to be hacked. He even goes as far as to call the iPhone the “ultimate spy device.”

Since the stakes are so high, thermonuclear war and all, the least the CIA and other wonderful intelligence agencies can do is provide sufficient evidence to the American people before they get annihilated under the winds of a 10,000 degree winter breeze. Or is that too much to ask? Judging by just about everything they’ve told us over the past 15 years, I’m inclined to believe the exact opposite is true.

Kim dot Com agrees with McAfee’s assertions. This isn’t exactly rocket science.

    Because he’s not a nut who’s been accused of murdering his neighbor or anything.

      You mean like the USA has killed 20-30 million people since the end of WWII? Murdering people in our neighboring countries? Like we attacked Iraq for no reason. Libya for no reason. Syria for no reason. Well, for money. Is that a good reason for you, Kathy? We arranged a coup in Honduras to put someone friendly to us in charge. We did the same thing in Ukraine a couple years ago and blamed it on Putin. But we’re the good guys, right? Just because we are America?

    Anyone with basic knowledge of a proxy server. Could make it look like it came from anywhere. They probably zero’d in on Russia since you can rent proxy servers for cheap there. Hence, “Looks like Russia”. It’s so basic it’s nearly nausiating at how simple it is, and this is the story they are feeding us. After bouncing off one or two proxy servers, with encryption, you won’t find that person no way, no how.

    its not just the I phone… look at windows 10 and other finger print and facial recognition crap out there. I can assure you if they can get you the right advertisement they have a pretty good idea somewhere else about everything now.

    Any kid in a basement with a proxy server hopping tool could do this. Frankly the country should be afraid of the citizens who have become totally fed up with them. I am hoping it will be better under Trump.
