John McAfee: 'I Can Guarantee You, It Was Not the Russians'

Via Frank

In case some of you were duped into believing this was evidence that proved Russia hacked the US elections, John McAfee would like to remind you that you're probably a high tier retard and would believe virtually anything your government told 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.”

  1. MacAfee, although probably brilliant, is a nut job. Take whatever he says with a grain of salt. However, he is correct that hackers are very, very, sophisticated and can effectively mask their true identities. Does the USA have real proof that Russians hacked the DNC and Hillary's email server, or is this merely outrage of convenience? Why not a chirp about all the non-political hacking by the Russians, Chinese and who knows what other groups? The Chinese have a new stealth fighter that was based on plans stolen from the US. They are also constructing a comprehensive data base of US personnel based on small amounts of data stolen from various sources and then coherently reassembled. Not a word about this from Obama. Methinks his outrage against the Russians is a feeble attempt to convince people that he actually accomplished something as President.

    1. is a feeble attempt to convince people that he actually accomplished something as President.

      Yes, Hillary's lost wasn't in the playbook.

  2. The democrats blame the Russians because the Russians keep eating their lunch. Obama, Hillary and Kerry got aced out in Syria by the Russians and got aced out in the Ukraine by the Russians. The intelligence agencies and the above mentioned impeachables are frustrated and denied...that's why they are trying to blame Russians. indyjonesouthere
