As I stated in “Breakdown of the “So-called” Evidence for Russian Hacking, and the Sad State of Cybersecurity” on January 5, 2017:
“By no means is this evidence of anything. It could even be a US-sponsored hack, for that matter, obfuscating its origin by using a Russian build environment. This is pure speculation, and any security researcher knows this has effectively been used by malware authors in the past.”
With the release of the “Marble Framework” on WikiLeaks, we come upon more evidence that the entire so-called “Russian Hacking” story could very well have been a US state-sponsored hack – and it’s more likely.
“Marble is used to hamper forensic investigators and anti-virus companies from attributing viruses, trojans and hacking attacks to the CIA. Marble does this by hiding (“obfuscating”) text fragments used in CIA malware from visual inspection. This is the digital equivalent of a specialized CIA tool to place covers over the English language text on U.S. produced weapons systems before giving them to insurgents secretly backed by the CIA.”
