Mysterious Hacker Leaks Emails Of Top US State Department Expert On Russia

Quote:
Coming at a "sensitive" moment for US-Russian hacking diplomatic relations, on Friday Foreign Policy reported that emails belonging to a senior US State Department intelligence official involved in Russian affairs have been leaked by a hacker known as "Johnnie Walker." The official, whose work is focused on Russian domestic affairs and who was described to FT as “probably the top intelligence guy in the entire U.S. government on Russia [who] knows more than anybody about what’s going on there,” is said to have been particularly interested in Russian media and government reshuffling.

The emails which were sourced from a hacked nongovernmental account over a two-year period, were sent to “an unknown number of recipients" and while the leaks were first released on July 10, they did not gain widespread attention until Friday when both FP and Newsweek commented on the hack.

In a letter announcing the alleged hacking, Johnnie Walker said that the leak would provide evidence for establishing what was called “agenda formation in many countries worldwide, especially where the situation is insecure.” The sender also claimed that the US State Department official was in contact with various intelligence agencies, including the CIA, as well as “mainstream media, NGOs, and international funds.”

Although the alleged hacking victim holds “a senior position in the State Department’s Bureau of Intelligence and Research” and while name was disclosed in the leaked emails, Foreign Policy outlet did not disclose the name, citing a request from the state department, which has so far neither confirmed nor denied the hack. The leaked correspondence was released online on Pastebin although its authenticity remains unclear for now. The description to the three archives available for download also adds the name of the alleged agent.

I never quote scripture. Well I'm drunk on sake, so it's time to quote some scripture!

And it's a perfect quote, thank you.

As for Sake, may I recommend one for you? Kubota "senjyu" sake. Being a (Dai)Ginjyo sake, it should be served cold. It is a pleasure.

Edit: 4:34 pm. I have extracted the second and third folder, still d/ling the first. Reading through some of the messages, it seems they are mostly discussions between various neocon academics and forwarding of articles. Most of these people rather than experts seem to be groupthinkers endlessly building up the walls of their own echo chamber.

Sounds like every government bureaucracy that has ever been created.

Lool good recommendation for Sake!
But seriously, I think even though a lot of these claims of hacking are lies and propaganda, some of them are feasable. Even the common person get's hacked all the time, although there are ways to protect yourself.

In general, even though the government has billions of dollars at its disposal to hire the best I.T. engineers and invest in the best infrastructure, it's very interesting that they still get hacked.

Increasing complexity can increase attack vectors.
