Kaspersky: We uploaded classified US
documents but quickly deleted them

Associated Press, by Raphael Sattter

Original Article

Posted By:Maggie2u, 10/25/2017 11:41:30 AM

PARIS (AP) — Sometime in 2014, a group of analysts walked into the office of Eugene Kaspersky, the ebullient founder of Russian cybersecurity firm Kaspersky Lab, to deliver some sobering news. Kaspersky’s anti-virus software had automatically scraped powerful digital surveillance tools off a computer in the United States and the analysts were worried: The data’s headers clearly identified the files as classified. “They immediately came to my office,” Kaspersky recalled, “and they told me that they have a problem.” He said there was no hesitation about what to do with the cache.

Comments:
Wonder whose computer the classified information came from.

The summer I was 14, I was visiting my cousin. One of her friends said "Come on over, I´ve got the greatest new record!". It was a 45, of course, and it was "Ain´t That a Shame", Fats Domino. None of us had ever heard of him. We played that little record over and over and over, bopping our hearts out.

I´m so very sorry he is gone.

So, what I really want to know is what happened to the NSA worker that took the files home.

I used Kaspersky and an anti-virus program for a year, the terms of the license. I thought it slowed my computer down. Maybe, I am narrow minded, but using Russian software no longer appeals to me. I didn´t know they were Russian when I bought it. Costco highly recommended it. Just like China, if they mad any software, I´d never buy it.

Ok this is going to take me a little work to sort out what I just read. An NSA worker brought classified documents home to do “work” on his/her home PC which was running a pirated operating system with Russian antivirus software. Did I read that?

Wait....what’s that I smell, did I catch a sent of BS? Sounds to me more like a setup for plausible deniability for a spy to feed information to the Ruskies.

Just like when they tried to get us to believe Hillary’s lack of tech acumen led to her criminal acts. You mean clean it with a cloth?

She’s not Aunt Bee and this jackwaggon isn’t a dedicated workaholic.

I have heard that nothing is ever really deleted, and we are not told whether the information was copied. In any case, the virus software was used to capture classified information and it ended up in Russia. The cynics of this world, myself, expected this result from the start.

Once the classified information was passed on to Russian intelligence, this company would have no reason to keep it on their servers, when it came to that of course the company would delete the “cache”.

African immigrants are more educated than

Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.

SEATTLE - A shuttle van plowed down a busy sidewalk Thursday in the heart of Seattle´s downtown retail district and crashed into the front of the Gap store, injuring at least four people. Officers and medics responded to the scene, at Fifth Avenue and Pine Street, just before noon after receiving reports of pedestrians struck. Witnesses said the Shuttle Express van jumped the curb and struck people who were walking along the sidewalk there. "He literally jumped the curb and smacked them," one witness, Amani Wright said. "It was horrible." He said one of those hit had a child with him.

13 Days in July:

WASHINGTON (AP) — They were the 13 days that transformed the White House. Even for an administration that spent most of 2017 throwing off headlines at a dizzying pace, events in the second half of July unfolded at breakneck speed. They encapsulated both the promise and peril of President Donald Trump’s first year in office — and yielded aftershocks that reverberate within the White House even as the calendar turns to 2018. The two-week span laid bare the splintering of Trump’s relationships with two influential Cabinet members, foreshadowed the reach of the Russia probe into the interior of his orbit;

The minuscule Galilean town in which Joseph and Mary spent their lives and raised their son Jesus was, quite literally, a joke. “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” asked one disciple, when he heard where the Messiah was from. Some scholars posit that this was a popular saying in the first century. In any event, Nazareth was on the fringes of the Roman Empire. Roman roads avoided it until the second century. Jesus came from a backwater of a backwater; he and his mother and father, the figures at the heart of the Christmas story, were most likely considered throwaway

Kent Wash. - It was supposed to be a second chance at a new life. A three-strikes felon serving life in prison was released early. But, two years later, he and another man showed up to the Kent Regional Justice Center Monday to face murder charges. The alleged victim´s family was also there. The Cabrera family said it was a struggle to show up in court and come face-to-face with the two men suspected of killing their loved one, 24-year-old David Cabrera. “It was pretty hard. It was very difficult for whole family,” said Daniel Cabrera, the victim’s twin brother.

Putting people on a pedestal is risky. It’s too easy for them to fall off. Even so, I don’t think we can, or should, stop ourselves from looking for people to admire. We’re always finding out that someone who seemed wonderful wasn’t really all that we imagined. And lately there’s been a hailstorm of revelations about well-known and well-liked people, mostly men, who have behaved badly toward women and in some cases other men.

A speeding bicyclist has taken away something dear to Virginia Pearsall. “I can’t feel safe on the trail anymore,” the 67-year-old Spokane woman said on Friday, walking with a slight limp and her left arm in a sling.

JOINT BASE LEWIS-MCCHORD — Günter Gräwe spent three years as a German prisoner of war in Western Washington, a World War II incarceration he recalls not with rancor but gratitude for the chance to “live and learn in America.” Gräwe always thought about returning to the state to say thank you. Last week, the rail-thin veteran, now 91, did just that during a brief visit to this base, where guard towers and barbed-wire fences are long gone but some of the two-story wooden barracks that once housed German prisoners still stand. He declared his capture by the Americans at the age of 18

SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. – An Idaho woman who acted as a good samaritan when a child was stuck inside a burning truck could face charges - all over a fire extinguisher. “I’m in absolute shock,” said Tequila Isaacson who jumped in to help when the pickup truck went up in flames. It happened near the Washington State Department of Transportation restroom building on Snoqualmie Pass. On Tuesday one of the glass front doors on the neighboring Red Mountain Coffee remained boarded up after Isaacson broke the window on Sunday to gain access to a fire extinguisher. “We turned around and the whole vehicle was

Skribblez the panhandling clown buried his nickels and dimes in Mason jars. When he saved enough to buy a house, he dug them up. Now, they call him the Homeless Homeowner. But his real name is Ryan Scanlon, a father and college student with a troubled childhood, debilitating seizures, no respect for authority and self-described mental issues. Speaking with a high-pitched voice from the red ball pinching his nose, Scanlon said homeless people need to get a job or do something more than “sitting around at these day centers.

The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,

Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit.

More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign.

Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to

Far from content living his golden years on the $400,000 speech and lecture circuit of other former presidents, President Obama has been busy with clawing back for his old power. He´s actually covertly plotting to oust his democratically elected successor, President Trump, vowing to his associates to "rip him a new one," in the 2018 midterm elections. Seems he´s not all that interested in watching his youngest daughter grow up. That´s the word from DCWhispers, which reports that Obama´s Kalorama mansion, in the heart of the capital´s most tony district, is the center of significant comings and goings among the Obamatons,

Sara Carter reports on a classified document that was released to all members of the House today. The document seems to be a compilation of information, prepared by House intelligence committee staff, relating to the anti-Trump dossier, the FBI, the warrant to conduct surveillance on members of the Trump campaign, and the use of that warrant. Carter calls the document a bombshell. Her sources say its revelations might lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and Department of Justice, and perhaps even the criminal prosecution of some. They also say, less plausibly, that the revelations could lead to

There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.

Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said Friday that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) has become "sort of the Steve King of the Senate," a reference to one of the House´s most ardent immigration hardliners. In an interview with MSNBC, Graham, who has advocated for legislative protections for young, undocumented immigrants, rejected the notion of ending family-based immigration in exchange for enshrining the protections of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program into law. A proposal by Cotton and Sen. David Perdue (R-Ga.) seeks to end so-called chain migration, which allows U.S. citizens and permanent residents to sponsor family members abroad to
