‘It’s not how hacking works’: Anonymous activist deconstructs ODNI report on ‘Russia hackers’

A member of the hacktivist network Anonymous has debunked the assertion that US intelligence report on Russia’s alleged hacking of the DNC proves a particular party’s guilt, explaining that such claims show a lack of understanding of how hackers operate.

“The ODNI [Office of the Director of National Intelligence] report wants you to believe that Russian hackers hacked the DNC [Democratic National Committee] based on the evidence that the attacks looked identical to methods used by the same Russian hacking team. But this is not how hacking works in the slightest,” video journalist and Anonymous activist Alex Poucher told RT.Read more‘It’s déjà vu’: Why many equate ‘embarrassing’ ODNI report to Iraq ‘WMD fiasco’“Hackers can either code their own tools to use, or download pre-compiled scripts that are readily available on any exploit database. If two teams download the same exploits and use them, then the attacks will appear to be the same, identical even,” Poucher, who has a degree in IT Security, said.
