FAT Anomalies In Leaked #DNCEmails Suggest Use Of Thumbdrive

Adam's latest article delves into additional detail on issues recently discussed by Bill Binney and Larry Johnson, in their article:


Adam's article begins with a tweet he posted some time ago, observing the following:

He writes: "What the table illustrates is that the first batches of #DNCemails published by @WikiLeaks have times that indicate the files were transferred to a FAT file system (likely transferred via a USB storage device). I wanted to give a more detailed explanation..."
"The “FAT” column is in reference to the FAT file system, a file system that, in recent years, is usually used on USB storage devices (some outdated non-USB disk storage devices used this in the past too, but it’s very rare to find such devices still in use)."
Carter explains: "The table (above) outlines the last modification dates on the emails (batched by date) and shows the earliest and latest timestamps, minimum ID, maximum ID, count and a column titled “FAT.”"
He continues: "The table illustrates that the first batches of DNC emails published by WikiLeaks have times that indicate the files were transferred to a FAT file system (likely transferred via a USB storage device)."
"One of the shortfalls of the FAT file system is that it stores timestamp data at a lower resolution - to the nearest two seconds. However, this means there is a pattern that can be detected and used to determine whether files were likely transferred via a FAT file system."
"Looking at the sent dates of emails and the last modified dates of the email files in the first two batches (those with last modification dates in May, two months prior to initial publication) it is possible to determine that:"
Adam adds: "We can’t, however, make any declaration on exactly when the files were moved to a USB device, as different types of copy operations could produce the same result even if the files were transferred to USB weeks after acquisition."
"Interestingly, the FAT file system indication is in line with claims made by Craig Murray that were published in December 2018 in relation to how WikiLeaks had obtained the DNC leaks through a physical hand-over of the emails."

"This particular characteristic was also reported on recently (February 13, 2019) in an article authored by William #Binney and Larry Johnson titled “Why The DNC Was Not Hacked By The #Russians". In the article they state:

#RussianHacking #WikiLeaks

Carter continues: "Looking at the transfer speeds on these batches also gives us reason to doubt that this was a local machine or local network transfer straight to a USB device as the transfers appear to have been at a rate of ~3 megabits/second."

"This suggests the files published by #WikiLeaks may initially have been transferred remotely. Some will argue that this supports assertions regarding the #DNC being hacked..."
