CFR Claims Chinese Gov't Hackers Attacked Their Servers and Left Without a Trace

Analysts at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) have confirmed that hackers traced to China attacked their system last week. The “drive-by” hacking utilized a pirated computer. To compound the problem, the analysts said that the hackers removed their malware and traces of their presence from CFR computer systems.

The CFR is a global Elite organization that “discusses” foreign policy, yet has direct influence over politicians and governmental leaders. In fact, Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State, admitted on record that the CFR defines governmental policy by outlining for puppet officials how to conduct themselves.

Members of the CFR include:

• Brian Williams, NBC news anchor
• Angelina Jolie, actress
• Chuck Hagel, former Senator as possible replacement for Secretary of Defense
• Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State
• Dianne Feinstein, Senator and chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee
• John Kerry, Senator and possible replacement for Secretary of State
• Roger Ailes, Fox News CEO
• Rupert Murdoch
• David Petraeus, former CIA director
• George W. Bush
• Bill Clinton
• Robert Gates, former Defense Secretary and CIA director

Sitting on the board of the CFR are:

• Madeleine Albright
• Army General John Abizaid
• Colin Powell
• Henry Kissinger

Recognizing China as becoming a formidable replacement to the US as the world’s superpower, the CFR has outlined specific responses to this crisis of supremacy. Citing Chinese Internet policy, their disdain for freedom of speech in social media, and influence in global cyberspace, the CFR appreciates that this rising “foe” must be confronted indirectly with propaganda to distract from the obvious.

This attack marked a new level by international hackers who aim to steal information from government websites and computers. The “drive-by” tactic covertly plants malware, then the website itself is used to attack visitors to the site. Visitors can be infected, as hackers will then attempt to hack into other computers as visitors are passing by. The hackers use the main site as a “watering hole” that attracts users to it for the hackers to steal information from their computers.

The analysts for the CFR deduced that the hackers were using Microsoft Windows Explorer 8 or higher; and used a little-known security flaw in the browser to gain access to their targeted computer. This led the investigation to resemble the Aurora attack in 2009 which was traced back to the Chinese government.

Analysts recognized that the attack was to gain specific information from servers. As of now, the CFR cannot gauge the extent of the damage – admitting that their internal data servers have been compromised by the hacking.

According to an anonymous White House official that spoke to mainstream media, yet acknowledged that they were not authorized to speak about the subject, there was an attempt to hack into the executive branch’s computer system through an unclassified network. No data were removed, proving that this was not an actual hack. The nameless official said that the experiment was a “spear-phishing”.

The supposition is that China is behind these attacks because of a phishing expedition against Gmail accounts wherein several senior US government officials and military personnel were affected.

The White House, covertly tying the alleged cyber-attack to China is more diabolical than it appears. In July, Obama imposed stricter sanctions against Iran after they accepted gold as currency for petrol to China.

The Israeli Prime Minister asserts that “all the sanctions and diplomacy so far have not set back the Iranian (nuclear) program by one iota. And that’s why I believe that we need a strong and credible military threat coupled with the sanctions to have a chance to change that situation.”

For the better part of 2012, China has purchased gold on the global markets in record numbers. They are a member of the BRICs nations and are working to secure their fiat by backing its worth in the precious metal.

Essentially, by converting their fiat currency (the Yuan) into actual and exchangeable money, they are securing their country’s future. This gold could be used to support their nation’s efforts toward moving forward as the next superpower. It could also be a leverage tool to assist other flailing countries as insurance for a favor at a later date.

According to other mainstream media outlets, “hackers linked to China’s government broke into one of the U.S. government’s most sensitive computer networks, breaching a system used by the White House Military Office for nuclear commands, according to defense and intelligence officials familiar with the incident.”

The official questioned explained that a connection to Bejing in the case of the cyber attack “highlights a failure of the Obama administration to press China on its persistent cyber attacks.”

While China supports Iran and Syria, the White House decries cyber attacks. China has promised financial support to Iran should the Zionist regime strike against the Arab nation. And as Iran is continuously demonized in American propaganda media, China can expect the same fate. First it begins with accusations; however, this is the first round of propaganda wars that eventually leads to military opposition.

If the hackers left without a trace, how does the CFR know they were Chinese, and not just using a hacked Chinese computer as a cutout?

This is the same old same old psychosis which has been around for a long long time.

It's called "existentialism."

It originates from the same source as anti-Semitism, and is contagious.

Elie Weasel, the finest Jewish mind which could be found capable of explaining such a thing, said, (speaking from experience) - "Some stories are true that never happened.”

That's all. Back to work.

"the anti-Christ (hillary)"

ROFL, I just recalled the figurine(doll) I saw during Christmas shopping at KW Surplus - Hillary "The Nutcracker" Clinton.

Along with Bill, but I can't remember the joke for him, something sexual obviously.

I could easily picture a Hillary "the anti-Christ" Clinton doll to go with that line, perhaps there is some potential for you making some money here... not that the money is really worth anything but at least it could be fun and bring some amusement to a lot of people who don't get much chance to smile or laugh these days. :)

Dear poor ol cfr, don't feel so bad, on Jan 1st 2012 your oath breaking affiliates passed the NDAA and as of that date ruined my websites, hosting, domains, and basically what I do (which I won't say since then I become a target.)

I think most of your oath breaking affiliates ought to be arrested and brought up under the LOGAN ACT, since there doesn't seem to be much taste for trying you scumbags for treason.

It's funny how CFR doesn't show up on the voters ballot at all, and yet it utterly destroys business like mine.

I also think it's hypocrisy to say you know it's Chinese, when you also state who ever did it covered their tracks. Either you know who did it and you lied about them covering their tracks, or you don't know who did it and you made up pointing the finger at China. But it mostly sounds to me like you are just making crap up because most people don't understand TCPIP and can't validate the crap you spew one way or the other.

Oh and one last thing about having a web presence dear CFR, that is, sometimes bad things happen, expect it. You don't hear me whining crying and making an international incident crying about how one of my ISP servers got cracked, blaming it on Brazil or some nonsense (likely a proxy) that was left in the logs. Cause BAD things happen sometimes. I'd say Grow up, except the only reason we are even HEARING about CFR is propaganda plain and simple.

If it was up to me, every elected official and appointed official would be forced to either DUMP their CFR hat, or resign because of conflict of interest of their sworn oath to the US Constitution.

The problems the United States has is because of OATH BREAKERS who trash the US Constitution.

Oh one more thing, if you have a nuclear system online. Um, Why would you have that connected to the web? I digress, assuming you did, you'd think you would the systems administrator would start with all ports closed, and then only allow one single IP address that you want in via SPA/portknock or PHONE CALL/Manually opening a port.

"internal data servers have been compromised by the hacking. "

Got a Backup?! Quit WHINING! Your lack of preparation and resultant mishap on your part, does not make a freaking global emergency on our part!

"The nameless official said that the experiment was a “spear-phishing”. "
The nameless official is promoting PROPAGANDA, otherwise what's the god damn name?!
Frankly if their servers got cracked they ought to SHUT UP ABOUT IT. Making it public and blaming China is PROPAGANDA, and they damn well know it.

"The supposition is that China is behind these attacks because of a phishing expedition against Gmail accounts wherein several senior US government officials and military personnel were affected. "

Why are government officials and military personnel using GMAIL? That would be enough for me to take your god damn security clearance right there if you wanted my opinion. Officials using GMAIL are walking security disasters waiting to happen, such people should not have a damn thing to say about copyright, or the web or cyber-whatever-de-jour policy--they don't understand it. Don't think I ain't forgot about Sara Palan's fiasco, how is it possible such idiocy can pass a security clearance and be considered for POTUS?

I still haven't seen a legitimate birth certificate of the current POTUS, So I would assume any oath upholding security working within the US government now is completely compromised. Basic things aren't checked. IT's TREASON!

Good thing I don't have authority to clean up my government!
All you CFR's, AIPAC's, PNAC's, or UN, Nato would be gone (actually I have a bigger list thanks to landdestroyer), never to EVER be elected, appointed, or contract for or work for a contractor (proxy) for government. In short you would never have a thing to do with the US government ever again. Never hold a security clearance again, never access government vaults, or servers again.

Frankly if your a member of these, I HATE YOU, and if the PEOPLE knew, they would too, the ONLY thing protecting you is the fascist corporate media. I would re-work that as well, the POTUS - FCC - BROADCASTER situation, clear out the fascist engineers toss out the current fascist mission statement(s) (that's plural) and re-instate the ORIGINAL mission statement, take POTUS's appointment power away and give it to the PEOPLE via VOTE. (if we could ever get a real vote and be rid of the exploitable, unvalidatable, electronic vote tabulation devices)

I would be happy to volunteer to straighten out these Problems, Sub-problems, and Sub-Sub-problems, where my knowledge ends I would hire those who's knowledge picks up. No EGO.
