McAfee on US Cyber-INsecurity and Russia (RT)

Remember, we „conspiracy nuts“ have known this for 10 years! Notice they do not mention that!

“The CIA has confirmed that they knew of ‘zero day’ exploits years in advance of the manufacturers of the software finding out,” he said. “Basically, by not fixing those faults it puts customers of Google, Apple, Microsoft and many other American manufacturers at risk, it puts their reputation at risks, and it costs us all billions of dollars.”

“Seriously, aren’t we doing the same thing as having a bunch of ill people in our population, and the CIA has a boatload of penicillin, which could cure us, but they are not going to give it to us, because the enemy may get access to it. Do you see the horror of this?” he said.

The developer [McAfee] says the world needs a new paradigm on how to deal with cyber weapons, because they are potentially “many times more devastating” than nuclear weapons, but are by nature capable of being used stealthily or fall into the hands of non-government entities.

“That’s what happens. All cyber tools are stolen; there are no secrets in this world. As sophisticated as the CIA is in developing weaponized software, they are just as ignorant of cybersecurity measures, just because we have none in this world,” he said. “They knew at some point they would be taken, and next time next year it’s going to be on the darkweb, and a 15-year-old kid could buy the entire set for a hundred dollars. This is the reality.”
