Hey, You Up… For A Dick In Your Eye?

with one comment

As the incident is still in the news cycle with ever increasingly bated breath headlines about the danger of a hack like this alleged one that happened to Bezos, I just felt compelled to chime in here. This “hack” was maybe carried out by MBS, maybe not, there is no evidence to prove either case because Bezos made some poor choices as to who to go to on the forensics and investigation. The FTI report was an incomplete and incompetently investigated incident and as such the only evidence that we have is the circumstantial evidence that MBS’ alleged phone number was used to send a video file with a potential piece of malware that may have owned his phone. That’s all we really have as evidence goes with or without an uptick in data use on the phone after the message. It is all made worse by the fact that FTI could not tell where the data was going and had no definitive sites that were known bad to show that exfil of data was happening in the way they were claiming.

Now I see Facebook and Apple are going back and forth pointing fingers on who’s fault the hack was (Whatsapp or iOS) which is more outright fuckery and pointless yammering in my opinion, first you get the proof of concept that a thing actually happened and how, then you can start the blame game on operating system issues or application vulnerabilities. In any case, here is my take on this whole thing…

Was Bezos phone hacked? —-> Maybe

Was it MBS and his technical services that may have done it? —–> Maybe

Can a hack happen like this with Whatsapp and an encrypted payload on an iOS device that maybe has a self destruct and hiding capabilities? —-> Possible, sure.

Were perhaps other sources and methods used by the adversary and that is what gave them the intel they needed in this incident outside of a hack? —-> Possible, sure.

Since we lack any hard evidence of an actual hack and exfiltration of data on Jeff’s phone, let’s posit another way this could have gone…

1) Jeff is busy pissing off MBS with coverage over Jashoggi (deservedly so mind you)

2) Jeff is having a secret relationship with a woman outside of his marriage and it isn’t as secret as he thinks…

3) Jeff’s new friend, for some reason, sends texts from Jeff she has to her brother and he sells that information and pictures to the National Enquirer for $200K

4) Jeff’s indiscretions makes it to MBS through alternate sources and methods and since they have exchanged phone numbers, and is in the middle of the Kashoggi thing, starts sending him texts alluding to the fact he knows about the affair and perhaps other things.

5) Jeff whigs and his phone goes to the shitty security services he has and, well we know the rest.

All of this is just as plausible and just as circumstantial in evidence as the FTI report on the alleged hack. In both cases it is easy to see MBS sticking his dick in Jeff’s eye and doing so to make a point. Was this an epic hack and a national threat?

Yeah, no.

So everyone needs to just stop with all these breathless reports. Jeff needs to stop doing stupid shit and perhaps really be concerned about who he chooses to have affairs with as a multi billionaire and all. MBS probably was at the root of these events in either case but I can’t say for sure because ya know, evidence and shit.

Which is the standard here right?

Put A Phishing Campaign In A Sealed Box With A Cat, and Some Poison….

So a startup run by a former NSA guy say’s that the GRU has spearphished Burisma by creating cloned pages…

Ok, and? Say, you got any kind of ya know, evidence there?

What’s that, no, nothing you can give us?

Well then, from Gods lips then.

Here’s my thing, whether or not the GRU has really hacked and gained access to Burisma, the fact that A-1 put this out to the NYT, the damage is done already ain’t it? This is how DISINFORMATION works kids! Now the fickle finger of flying fate has been launched and this means fuck all. Please understand gentle readers, that this is done now, no matter what so called evidence does turn up, the fact is this, EVERYTHING about this incident and now Burisma’s records is called into question as being tampered with. Specifically more so because no real proof was laid out here with, ya know, like forensic evidence.

Nope nope nope, just a nice little ad for A-1 right?

Yeah….

So yeah, as far as I am concerned, Burisma was likely owned by the GRU before this story and I would lay money on the fact that shits been tampered with. I will take everything with a grain of salt until such time as a forensics report is placed in front of me with that pesky EVIDENCE that things should all be based on.

Welcome to the 2020 race.
