re: On DNC's refusal to turn over severs...experts say it is "normal practice" - tigerinDC09
[quote]Just because you have a few examples, doesn’t mean it is normal.[/quote] I could turn it around and say go find me examples where organizations that were hacked turned over their physical servers. Find me a link or a case and I'll read. ...

re: On DNC's refusal to turn over severs...experts say it is "normal practice" - tigerinDC09
[quote]Perhaps it is normal, I really can’t say. It strikes me though as the equivalent of calling the cops because your house was robbed but not letting them in the house. You simply send them select photos of the broken window and the like. I’m not overly sympathetic to Trump, but I think he makes...

[quote]"We usually ask for the logs and images, and 99 out of a hundred times, that's sufficient.” Did they get that or did they take Crowdstrike's word?[/quote] James Comey addressed the issue. “We got the forensics from the pros that they hired So it appears that the "forensics" Comey is re...

[quote]If people are indicted and tried in criminal court, don’t they have a right to their own forensic analysis of the evidence?[/quote] Yes, and I would love to see this happen. The reality is that cyber crime is so rampant that only a fraction is ever prosecuted. The FBI is overwhelmed and...

re: On DNC's refusal to turn over severs...experts say it is "normal practice" - tigerinDC09
[quote]Um what? This was confirmed in one of the WikiLeak dumps way back when man. The NSA DOES have the technology to hack into a server and leave traces that lead to another hacker, or no traces at all. Do you really suppose we are the only ones with that technology? [/quote] I work in cyber a...

[quote]That is the dumbest fricking thing I have ever heard. We are going to give you a little piece of the puzzle but trust us this is the only important part you should look at[/quote] The FBI alerted the DNC about the attack, so they clearly have their own means of detecting an attack. The IPs...

re: On DNC's refusal to turn over severs...experts say it is "normal practice" - tigerinDC09
[quote]I don't find the objections by "my side" about the DNC server convincing. These people are falsely equating the NSA and CIA's capabilities to some random IT administrator working for Norton or Symantec. Yes, if a security firm in the private sector didn't have access to the server, I would ...

[quote]So what? The sheer numbers makes this a no win for them. They import almost nothing from us, and we are their largest customer. They don't need to worry about replacing what they buy from us, they need to worry about selling their crap to someone else[/quote] I'm not making it out to be...
