A Botnet

Different than your typical Botnet

Lots of Resistance Followers

Lets take a look

Thread
I really didn’t want to do another Botnet thread. This one however needs to be exposed. 9 months of activity. Over 12 Million posts. Many Resistance members following.

While we are at it how the hell after all this time and all of these tweets did Twitter not spot this Botnet?
Thanks to @rosesansthorns for bringing this to our attention. She saw anomalies in a Twitter account (@blackalive_) and shared them with our team. Here is a screenshot of that very active account.

ELECTION FRAUD
It’s the Life Blood of the RNC and Trump Campaign.
(It’s not Voter Fraud. It far worse)
en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electoral…
2) ELECTION FRAUD
“Electoral fraud, election manipulation, or vote rigging is illegal interference with the process of an election, whether by increasing the vote share of the favored candidate, depressing the vote share of the rival candidates, or both.“
3) ELECTION FRAUD
“In national elections, successful electoral fraud can have the effect of a coup d'état or corruption of democracy. In a narrow election, a small amount of fraud may be enough to change the result.”

Most times elections are won or lost in a handful of States.

But.
Russia targeted almost half of our States Voter Systems.
Cambridge Analytica had at least 87 Million of us in their data.

Why so far beyond what they needed for the Swing States?

Thread
So why go so far beyond?
Why draw so much more attention to the targeting?
We now know all that was done to get Trump Elected. They needed all of it to take three typically democratic Voting States and turn them by the narrowest of margins.

For Companies Like Facebook and Google and others you are not their customers.

You Are Their Product.

How To Protect Your Personal Data.

Thread
Recent stories regarding the use of people’s Facebook data and it’s use by Cambridge Analytica/Trump campaign has many thinking about their privacy.
A good rule of thumb : if massive corporations offer their services are free, they must be making money in some fashion. Often this is through using your data to gain advertising customers.

Cambridge Analytica

Fake News

Bots

and the Swing States

You need to see these numbers!!

We didn't have a chance!!

Thread
Obviously there was an all out effort to manipulate who voted during the 2016 Election.

We were besieged with Fake News, Bots, Data Mining and Micro Targeted Ads

Wherever we turned we got Fake news

Whether it was TV, You Tube, our Social Media accounts or the Trump Campaign.
Cambridge Analytica had profiles of 50 Million US Citizens with up to 5,000 data points on each.

They ran targeted ads on Facebook.

They used Twitter to analyze sentiment data looking at responses to Keywords.

Cambridge Analytica. The Video.

The Questions it raises.

The Rabbit Hole.

Thread
Here is a very interesting video of a presentation made in 2017 by Molly Schweickert, Cambridge Analytica's Global Head of Digital.
In the video she describes the details of Cambridge Analytica's triumphant Trump campaign marketing venture.

1/ When? At what point is it enough? Where is the line? How long do we wait? Are those currently in positions of leadership deaf, dumb & blind? What about those that were, but no longer are? Is everyone waiting for someone else to make the determination? #Resist #TheResistance
2/ If not everything that’s occurred since and including the entire 2016 election, up and down ballot, nation wide isn’t a crisis, what is? Is the American Govt involved with the very practices our Government was put in place to prevent? #Vote #FlipItBlue #BlueWave2018 #VoteBlue
3/ Did the President not take an Oath? If the President doesn’t honor his Oath do we not have a Congress to check him? If Congress does not check him but is corrupted and derelict of duty as well, who protects America? The American people can keep them in check with their vote.

.@NicolleDWallace @mattapuzzo...how can you claim that the Russians did not hack votes?! This BS had been going on since 2000! Between the @GOP gerrymandering, using Crosscheck to purge voter rolls, Russians hacking states' election rolls, Bannon/Kushner/Mercers/Parscale using
the data the Russians hacked at Cambridge Analytica to target their Facebook and Twitter fake news propaganda, it's criminal for any journalist to deny votes were affected.

You obviously have not reviewed the work of @mikefarb1 and @saill at unhackthevote.com

Lets talk about what our process is.

Lets address this data thing.

Thread
For every single state we run for our election graphs, Saill has always provided the direct download link to download from the state to get data we are using. Always. It is just state data.
As far as Voter Registration Data we will not hand that out. As many articles we have published shows that having just these files and logging on through the states website someone could manipulate data for their own gain. We can't take that responsibility.

Anti-Trump Bots now in Full Swing!!

New Bot - different from our VotyBot.

Lets take a deeper look.

Thread
First off thanks to @icklepepper for getting me some screenshots to start our research.
These Twitter accounts had been attempting to follow me (@mikefarb1 for weeks). Very similar to each other. Picture of a woman, with the username a woman's first name followed by #TheResistance. These twitter accounts all follow many popular #Resistance accounts.

Trump Sub Domains Thread 4

We are not done with our story of the Trump Subdomains pointing to St. Petersburg Russia.

Why we don’t think they were there by accident or hack.

Thread
These subdomains were not part of the documented GoDaddy "Shadow Domain" exploits. Or any other exploit or hack.
The GoDaddy Shadow Domain exploits occurred in 2011 and 2014, not in 2013. Spokesman from GoDaddy says the same, in the ABC News piece.

Another look back to what we knew last year about Russia's attempt to hack Voter Registration systems.
In Illinois, investigators found evidence that cyber intruders tried to delete or alter voter data. The hackers accessed software designed to be used by poll workers on Election Day, and in at least one state accessed a campaign finance database
In early July 2016, a contractor who works two or three days a week at the state board of elections detected unauthorized data leaving the network, according to Ken Menzel, general counsel for the Illinois board of elections.

What we knew about Russia Hacking of State Election Websites. This from Ruben Major from May. Illinois not just targeted but hacked hard.

Thread
The report indicated that the SBE website was hit a massive number of 5 times per second 24 hours per day. The Board also concluded that “various IVRS passwords were compromised.”
Those with compromised passwords included election authorities, staffers, SBE users, vendors and web services.

First up, no respect for the judiciary branch.

Notice the irony in using the judicial system?

Devin Nunes and the Trojan Horse Thread 2

If you think our first thread was concerning it gets worse.

Much worse.

Thread
As we looked more closely at the domains assigned to the server that still hosts the malicious code we found on devinnunes[.]net, a pattern emerged.
It became clear that all the websites on this computer were associated with the Nebraska company Northstar Campaign Solutions.  It also became clear that the malicious code we found was not an accident.

Certainly if a group such as #UnhackTheVote is collecting large sums of money derived from catering to our base fears, it seems they would welcome scrutiny. After all, scrutiny and transparency is what they (allegedly) advocate for, is it not?
Back when I regulated lobbyists, I learned that the lobbyists who circled wagons, became aggressive against inquiries, operated in closed group cliques, obfuscated attempts at sunlight—those were the worst offenders of all.
I invite #UnhackTheVote to open up their books and records to public inspection: disclose ALL revenue and ALL expenditures, including who is/was paid what and when.

In May of 2017 vulnerabilities were discovered on one of Devin Nunes' campaign websites. The campaign website devinnunes.net had apparently been infected with a virus that caused some internal pages to be indexed by Google, in Russian.
The full report on this discovery is here: slickrockweb.com/devin-nunes-ru…. The author of the report notified the Nunes campaign of these vulnerabilities on May 19, 2017.

This is why we need paper ballots, plain and simple.

As an IT professional, I understood most of what they are doing. This is frightening & should alarm everyone.

Let me explain why:

<Thread>
The fact that we do not have an agency that oversees electronic voting machines is ridiculous and just as scary that these “white hat” hackers are able to take control of these machines and their databases within minutes.

From Candidate to Kompromat It Just Takes One Click

Candidate or Citizen your life could change in just one click. Spear Phishing, it has been in play for years. It has cost us politically and personally. It is back. It is everywhere. What we need to know

Thread
What is it? Spear phishing is an email-spoofing attack that seeks unauthorized access to sensitive information. Spear phishing attempts are NOT random. They are specific, targeted attemps to gain access to private and personal information. searchsecurity.techtarget.com/definition/spe…
Remember when the emails of John Podesta, Colin Powell, and the DNC were compromised in 2016? This happened because the fell prey to a phishing attack. In Podesta's case, he logged onto what he believed was his gmail account and changed his password.

An important follow up to our Voty Bot Story.

Remember our Voty botnet story from last week? We talk about our discovery of a botnet that was spreading anti-Al Franken propaganda. The whole story is here: unhackthevote.com/our-research/t…
This botnet is quite an operation. It involves Japanese developers, two new alt-right propaganda websites and an entire army of hacked computers tweeting alt-right propaganda.

PAY ATTENTION - VIDEO THREAD - THE MODUS OPERANDI OF TRUMP ADMINISTRATION & #TRUMPRUSSIA IS SIMPLY USING AS A TEMPLATE WHAT RUSSIA AND #PAULMANAFORTE DID WITH #YANOKOVICH IN UKRAINE.
2) #Yanokovich won the #Ukraine election in 2004 because, wait for it eustedes, Russain state operative HACKED the election servers and gave Yanokovich enough votes to claim victory. This is EXACTLY what @MikeFarb1 & the statisticians at #unhackthevote are saying happened in 2016
3) #PaulManaforte 's contrived narrative about #Yanokovich being "his own man" (as oppose to an RU shill) and a "strong leader" with "a plan" who was the victim of "bad reporting" is the same contrived narrative the Trump administration has been pushing since its campaign.
