Hackers have been able to infect tens of thousands of computers in more than 100 countries using software developed by the NSA. The hack prevents computer systems from accessing their data bases by altering their encryption. Typical targets are companies, government agencies, banks, hospitals, and any other enterprise that cannot afford loss of access to its data. The ransom required to regain the data is 300 Bitcoin, but the price rises sharply if the price is not paid within a few hours. Most victims pay immediately but are vulnerable for similar attacks in the future. Wikileaks exposed this problem last month by publishing the software manuals to prove that the threat is real. It did not publish the software itself, however, because that would allow even more criminals to participate. This reporter anticipates that the CIA and the press will attempt to blame Wikileaks and Trump supporters for the problem. –GEG
Bill Binney, the highest-ranking NSA whistleblower, says the US intelligence community discovers or creates cyberspace weaknesses and then leaves them open instead of fixing them. Then, when there is a cyberattack, they say they need more money for cyber security and to stop terrorists. Finally, they blame the attack on the Russians so they can get more tax money to ‘defend the nation’ in a new cold war. –GEG
We’ve documented that the intelligence services intentionally create digital vulnerabilities, then intentionally leave them open … leaving us exposed and insecure.
Washington’s Blog asked the highest level NSA whistleblower ever* – Bill Binney – what he thinks of the attacks.
Binney told us:
This is what I called short sighted finite thinking on the part of the Intelligence Community managers.
This is also what I called (for some years now) a swindle of the tax payers. First, they find or create weaknesses then they don’t fix these weaknesses so we are all vulnerable to attack.
Then, when attacks occur, they say they need more money for cyber security — a total swindle!!! [Indeed.]
This is only the second swindle of the public. The first was terror efforts by saying we need to collect everything to stop terror — another lie. They said that because to collect everything takes lots and lots of money.
Then, when the terror attack occurs, they say they need more money, people and data to stop terror. Another swindle from the start. [The war on terror is a “self-licking ice cream cone”, because it creates many more terrorists than it stops.]
And, finally, the latest swindle “THE RUSSIANS DID IT.” This is an effort to start a new cold war which means another bigger swindle of US tax payers.
For cyber security, I would suggest the president order NSA, CIA and any others to fix the cyber problems they know about; then, maybe we will start to have some cyber security.

REvil’s site on the dark web claimed that more than 1 million targets were infected in the attack and that the group was demanding $70 million for a universal decryptor. The hackers demanded the ransom in Bitcoin, which has been used by authorities to to call for an end to private cryptocurrencies.
Ross Ulbricht, the creator of the Silk Road, an anonymous website known for selling drugs and using Bitcoin, was arrested and sentenced to two consecutive life sentences plus 40 years! Ulbricht was used to discourage other people from using private cryptocurrency. This interview with his mother is a cry of despair against politicians, prosecutors, and judges, who get away with falsifying evidence, withholding evidence, conspiracy to deny the right to a fair trial, and outright lying in order to punish those who become role models for the use of cryptocurrency instead of government-issued money.
Attackers are going after both companies and cities by exploiting vulnerabilities via malicious email attachments and demanding payments for decryption keys. In early June, Baltimore rejected a $76,000 ransom, and the damage will instead cost the city about $18 million in IT costs and lost revenue.
