Media publish top-secret NSA report on Russia hacking US presidential election

Russian military intelligence executed a cyberattack on at least one U.S. voting software supplier and sent spear-phishing emails to more than 100 local election officials just days before last November’s presidential election in the United States.

Censor.NET reports referring to The Intercept citing a highly classified intelligence report by the National Security Agency.

The report, dated May 5, 2017, is the most detailed U.S. government account of Russian interference in the election that has yet come to light.

The report indicates that Russian hacking may have penetrated further into U.S. voting systems than was previously understood. It states unequivocally in its summary statement that it was Russian military intelligence, specifically the Russian General Staff Main Intelligence Directorate, or GRU, that conducted the cyber attacks described in the document.

As noted, the Russian hackers sent spoofed emails purporting to be from Google to employees of an unnamed U.S. election software company, according to the NSA report. Although the document does not directly identify the company in question, it contains references to a product made by VR Systems, a Florida-based vendor of electronic voting services and equipment whose products are used in eight states.

However, there is no final conclusion as to whether the interference of the Russian Federation has affected the presidential election in the United States.

The report points out that the Russian hackers may have been able to penetrate into the U.S. voting system deeper than previously thought.

The report adds significant new detail to the picture that emerged from the unclassified intelligence assessment about Russian election meddling released by the Obama administration in January. The January assessment presented the U.S. intelligence community's conclusions but omitted many specifics, citing concerns about disclosing sensitive sources and methods. The assessment concluded with high confidence that the Kremlin ordered an extensive, multi-pronged propaganda effort "to undermine public faith in the U.S. democratic process, denigrate Secretary Clinton, and harm her electability and potential presidency."

The Intercept also says that officials asked not to publish this report and refused to comment on its contents.

As CNN further reported, the materials had been leaked to an online media outlet by Reality Leigh Winner, 25, a contractor with Pluribus International Corporation in Georgia. She has been detained and faces up to 10 years in prison for leaking classified information. , Original in Ukrainian / на українському

Nikki Haley hits out at inclusion of abusers and claims bias against Israel

The US threatened to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council on Tuesday, as ambassador Nikki Haley criticised the inclusion of human rights abusers among its membership and what she described as an institutional bias against Israel.

In the first US address to the Geneva-based body since it was established, Ms Haley said that the administration “is looking carefully at this council and our participation in it”. 

“Being a member of this council is a privilege and no country who is a human rights violator should be allowed a seat at the table,” Ms Haley told the council, adding that if Venezuela does not halt human rights abuses at home it should relinquish its membership of the body.

But critics and human rights groups have also accused the US of being soft on human rights abusers, citing President Donald Trump’s praise for authoritarian leaders such as Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines and Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey. 

The new administration has approved previously blocked arms sales to countries accused of rights violations and appears to downplay the role of human rights in determining foreign policy...............
