Government Systems Hacked By International Threat

"S cyber experts scramble to assess the scope of the hack of a decade by kimberly dosier. Us government cyber experts are working furiously. Insecure offices around the globe sifting through computer traffic to figure out which federal systems have been penetrated in the sweeping cyber-spying attack. The fbi warned this week is significant and ongoing suspected russian. Hackers have broken into sensitive. Us government computer networks from the pentagon to the department of energy as well as top us private businesses rummaging around in them and likely reading emails and gathering data the department of homeland security cyber security and infrastructure security agency called the attack which started in march or possibly earlier a grave risk to the us government experts from both the government and top us private firms compromised in the attack are taking whole sections of their computer networks off line or quarantining them for a deeper forensic dive to figure out what was copied or taken. And if the hackers left any malware code behind the hackers exploited a little known but widely used software. Program called a ryan made by a cyber company called solar winds whose client list includes the office of the us. President the pentagon nasa nsa all five branches of the us military and most of the fortune five hundred companies including the top ten u s communications companies the austin texas based company removed. Its client list from its website. After reporting the hack may have affected some eighteen thousand customers. The company says it has been quote advised that the nature of this attack indicates that it may have been conducted by an outside nation state and is urging clients to update their systems to remove the threat. The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment ceasar referred to the attackers has quote a patient. Well resourced and focused adversary adding that. The orion software vulnerability wasn't the only way it attacked but declining to share further details since it was first reported by reuters on sunday the known extent of the hack has grown wider each day so far government agencies including the departments of commerce and energy are among those confirmed to be infected though energy. Spokesperson said the hack only compromised business networks and didn't reach the national nuclear security administration on thursday microsoft reported that it's found the malware uploaded to some of it systems. You've got to assume that they're still in right now. And they're going to stay in says cyber experts suzanne spaulding who led the homeland security office. That is now ceases during the obama administration so you pretty quickly have to start looking at what they could have gotten access to president. Donald trump has so far been silent on what appears to be one of the worst cyber attacks on the united states in decades. The white house has offered little public comment beyond confirming via twitter that an investigation is underway. A senior administration official speaking anonymously to describe the ongoing investigation told time that the list of compromised. Us government agencies will likely include the pentagon as well as other agencies that use the software. The official also confirmed time that the attackers are believed to be russian state. Operatives reported by the washington post to be the infamous hacking collective known as abt twenty nine or cozy bear russia's ambassador to washington anatoly. I- antonoff denounced. Those reports is quote unfounded attempts of the us media to blame russia for hacking attacks on the us government bodies in remarks this week where georgetown university virtual forum the diplomat. Who complained that. He can't get a meeting with top government officials or lawmakers to discuss a host of accusations against moscow offered to arrange a meeting between russian intelligence. Fbi and cia officials to get to the bottom of it. The orion software is used to monitor and manage computer systems the kind of program and in house. It tech might use to remotely fix an employee's computer when it has a meltdown. The hacker is essentially piggybacked on the orion program software updates so when users updated their systems. They unwittingly uploaded. Malware that gave the hackers. A back. Door explains dmitri alperovitch former co founder and cto of cybersecurity firm crowd strike. His former cybersecurity company was hired by the democratic national committee. When it's emails were hacked in two thousand sixteen which the fbi later attributed to russia when the update came down it basically was a master key for the russians to get access to every single one of these systems. Alperovitch says calling it a heck of a decade and one of the most significant cyber espionage operations in history though it apparently did not penetrate classified systems he says citing conversations with industry insiders. The fbi is leading an investigation to track the hackers while cease which became a household name this year after disputing trump's allegations of election fraud resulting in trump's firing. Its director is sending out new warnings on what they've found and how government and private companies should respond to fix it. The spying attack was first discovered by cybersecurity. Firm fire which reported being hacked by a quote highly sophisticated threat actor that it says inserted malware onto its own network via the solar winds ryan software and then stole some of the cybersecurity companies own quote unquote ethical. Hacking tools. used to probe fire eye. clients networks for vulnerabilities aaron hughes former. Us deputy assistant secretary of defense for cyber policy says the sophistication of targeting contractor in the government supply chain to get to its clients immediately points to an actor like russia or china impersonating users and using inherently trusted mechanisms to conduct what appear to be trusted communication. That's not an insignificant task says hughes. Who's now a cyber expert with the center for strategic and international studies cis. Is the level of effort in stealth. That goes into instituting. That sort of computer to computer communication requires the skill set and breath of a nation state. He said there's a ranking in terms of urgency that governs what cyber-attacks combing their networks for i they make sure. The enemy hasn't accessed critical. Us weapons systems like the launch codes for nuclear bombs. Then they look at things like control of electricity or water supplies triaging a malthusian. Hierarchy of threats says spalding. Who's a senior homeland. Security adviser with csis. After you figure out what the adversary access you play out the worst case scenario of what they might do with what they were able to reach she adds and the game is still on hackers off in store things. They want a copy within the system. They've targeted so they can download it in a way. That won't arouse copying the data a few kilobytes at a time. So there may be packets of information that they've marked to move that are still untouched. And the race is on to cut the hackers off and then rebuild. It can't just go in and kind of surgically remove the adversary spalding. Explains you have to rebuild a completely new infrastructure that isn't connected to the old infrastructure though. The operatives were still active while americans were voting in the presidential election. This fall spalding. Doesn't think the suspected russian hackers were able to effect twenty twenty voting because of quote such overwhelming use of paper ballots and the ability to audit. I think it would have been detected. She said russian government. Hackers have penetrated sensitive systems before they did in two thousand sixteen. When russian military intelligence officers were indicted for crimes including hacking the computers of the democratic national committee primarily through phishing emails. Russian hackers were also blamed for a two thousand fifteen fishing attack that seized control of the pentagon joint staff's unclassified email systems retired chairman of the joint chiefs general martin dempsey told. Cbs news that within an hour of accessing the system. The hacker seized dempsey's computer credentials as well as hundreds of other senior officers and the only way to stop. It was to take the system down cyber expert hughes who was serving as the pentagon seibert defense deputy assistant secretary at the time recalls that his team had to quote isolate and shut down. Parts of the unclassified network to identify and then eradicate the threat actor. Ironically it was the failure to update software that enabled what still seen as the worst cyber attack on the us government. When chinese hackers stole the personnel files of four point two million government employees as reported by the us office of personnel management in two thousand fifteen including the real names of intelligence officers serving in covert positions around the world responding to news the hack the incoming biden administration released a statement thursday vowing to make dealing with quote what appears to be a massive cybersecurity breach affecting potentially thousands of victims a top priority. From the moment we take office alperovitch. Who's now the chairman of the silverado. Policy accelerator a washington dc based cyber think tank warned against us officials or lawmakers reacting to what he calls run of the mill spying as opposed to enact of war. This is a case where we should say good for them. Shame on us for letting them he says we need to use this as a wake-up call to reorganize our government to better deal with this massive intelligence failure and massive failure

"Announcements and what we may expect. In the not too distant future is ABC News correspondent Andy Field, Andy Some names popping up today that are making history. Yeah, Another one just came up to now. But we haven't confirmed this yet. Although the number of places they're saying that Michelle Floren e She's a former government official who was deputy assistant secretary of defense under Barack Obama. She also advised Defense Secretary Robert Gates, Leon Panetta. Uh, it appears she may be named as secretary of defense. That would be a first. If indeed that happens And she's confirmed April Haynes, another woman. Director of national intelligence. We do know that that is someone that Joe Biden is going to a point. And then we're also told that Janet Yellen another woman, another first if this indeed goes through to be secretary of Treasury Now, you remember Janet Yellen was the Fed chair back in 2014. And you know it shaping up. There are some historic appointments and women breaking glass ceilings all over the place here if these folks are confirmed by the Senate No doubt it's I'm seeing some of these names popping up as a czar, a cabinet level positions but wasn't biting supposed to delay some of his Cabinet cabinet announcements. What he did last week. You said he was going to start telling us around Thanksgiving and looked at the calendar is getting pretty close. Well, yes, You're right. We are kind of on it now, aren't we? All right. So here we are with with with with a few of those, uh, what one other big names can we expect? I know when he when he comes on, he says John Kerry as the climate czar. I don't know how John Kerry feels about that. Maybe that's all he wanted to take on. Maybe he wanted to focus on climate, but I don't know. That almost seems like a step down When your secretary of state that such a huge you know the whole life. You don't know He actually He takes this very seriously and hey did hey was one of the architects of the Paris climate accord that President Trump pulled out of Joe Biden plans to get right back into it. And John Kerry will be of The special envoy for climate. I don't think we actually have officials are titles, but that's what you get when their point of these things, then Ambassador Linda Thomas Greenfield, another woman, United States ambassador to the U. N, although It's not unusual. We've had a number of women in that position. Alejandro Mayorkas, secretary of Department of Homeland Security, Antony Blinken, He has been a long time. International adviser to then Vice President Biden Looks like he's going to be appointed secretary of state and what was interesting today? Joe Biden was asked as he went in to do a conference call with the nation's mayors. Do you think you're gonna have any problem getting any of these folks through if it's indeed a Republican controlled Senate, he left pretty loud egos. Are you kidding me? Of course I'm gonna have problems doing that. Oh, I think one of the reasons he may be appointing a lot of women is that it's gonna be a little harder. For the mostly male dominated Republican Senate to say Yeah, we're gonna We're gonna make sure you don't have any of these first and any of these departments, by the way, Janet Yellen. If she's confirmed Secretary of Treasury, she would be the 76, Treasury secretary in U. S history and the first who is not a white male. Wow, That's interesting. I e. I guess that makes sense, though, that It's all been men and our country doesn't exactly have a whole long history of diversity in high positions, either. So I suppose that makes sense. Do you know any feelings? You know the first Hamilton Very gay Bolton Go on Broadway. Yeah, Any fields are ABC news correspondent. I passed the history test for today. Absolute. All right. What about big names? I know that there's the when we When we start taking a look at some of the other media outlets they're saying President. President elect Biden plans on packing the Cabinet with far left socialists and they start naming Ah, bunch of, you know, either its members of the squad or whatever else What about some of those other big names? What about Bernie Sanders? What about Elizabeth? Warren? What about some of these other names? Yeah, listen, the board's possibility, but we thought she'd be the possibility for Treasury secretary And that doesn't appear to be the case. I don't know what other position she would want. That would be interesting to her, and she also just one A hard fought Senate race in the last couple of years, so I don't know that human. You feel like she's doing more help in the Senate, and she does take a Cabinet position. It's a Democratic governor in that state would appoint a Democrat to replace her so that wouldn't change the balance of power. Ready standards is a little more problematic. Bernie Sanders is really not a Democrat. He calls himself a Democratic socialist. Hey, caucuses with the Democrats, so that gives them one more person in the Senate. But They have a Republican governor in that state. So if Bernie Sanders leaves the Senate, they Republican governor could appoint a Republican senator he and since that that wouldn't happen, But there's no guarantee that that's the case and because It is so razor thin clothes on the Senate in terms of Democrats or Republicans. And of course, we're awaiting the outcome of what happens in Georgia if Democrats win both seats, which is not likely, but if they do Then the Democrats take control of the Senate, even though it's 50 50 tie because medalist before, uh come on. Come on, Harris. Is the vice president. She gets a vote as the president the Senate that would give them a one vote majority. Every time they go off to that. S o some other high profile names. Look, we had a huge democratic field in the primary. It's just a massive field of candidates on Joe Biden emerged from that..

Why the Treasury wants its money back

"There are days of which this is one when we are obliged by the news to get just detached down in the weeds so we will because we have to. But we'll do it gently back in march in the cares act. Congress authorized the treasury department to let the federal reserve us about four hundred and fifty billion dollars to fund. A bunch of fed lending programs programs that would and remember back in march and april. The fear factor was pretty high in this economy. Right these programs would stabilize credit markets. And in a way thus backstop the whole economy. Well yesterday treasury secretary steven mnuchin. Told jay powell. He wants the money back. In other words those lending programs the secretary said are none the fed not known for its political loquaciousness. Said in a statement. Yesterday afternoon it would prefer the money and the emergency programs. Stay where they are. But after noon sherpao roach secretary mnuchin and told him the money's on the way so we will get to the what it all means thing with lopez and genus smile. Like in a minute but first marketplace abbreviation shore with what exactly these programs did in different ways. These programs all allowed the fed to get down and dirty in the mud of credit market so for example a couple of them allowed the fed to actually buy corporate bonds another loved the fed to buy short-term bonds from state and local governments another allowed to indirectly by up car loans and student loans they essentially stood there and said you know we'll be a buyer of these things will support these markets yousef obasi is global market strategist at stone ex. Now the reason we care that the fed could buy these securities. Is that for a while. They're in this pandemic. It was looking like nobody else would and if nobody wants to buy up for example loans. People aren't going to get as many loans and loans are what kept some businesses. Live and local governments functioning. You're talking about essentially the entire credit markets could've yearly froze if the fed didn't step in with these facilities the fed supported credit market so credit markets could support people.

These programs worked. Edward altman is professor of finance emeritus at nyu. The treasury felt that it has succeeded so well that it's no longer necessary. Oldman sees that is.

So I asked her who has won the election in her opinion. That remains to be seen. Donald Trump had won. Florida, Ohio, Texas looked like he was winning Georgia, North Carolina and had been listed by all TV networks as leaning red in Pennsylvania. And then suddenly you wake up in the morning after and you find out that some of this had flipped over night. We have seen some anomalies here in the states. Just in the last 24 hours. You have nearly 4000 people in the critical state of Nevada described and listed on devoted roles as dead as having voted. So who won? I don't think we'll know until probably early December much in the way that we did not know who won the 2000 election until December. 12 of 2020, I think will be about that same time period. I mean, there has been a history of votes being Challenge. We already are heading to a recount in Georgia. We know that Donald Trump has launched several lawsuits. Do you feel that the Trump team is really not getting the legal do they deserve? I think it's a process that needs to be worked through. And in fact, I've been telling folks who've been calling me all day today in the last few days. That this is going to be like a game of tug of war. I don't know if you have that overseas, but one day you win a little. Then the next day, you have to give a little. Then the next day, you win again. And then next day, you have a setback. And I think we're going to go through that frustrating process as Republicans over the next several days, perhaps even the next 234 weeks, But I do think that the Trump legal team was prepared for this and I can tell you why I was with a Top member of Mayor Rudy Giuliani team on Sunday, and he said he was not returning to New York City that he was actually going straight to the White House and that they had told him he would not be going home again until December. 19th so that tells me even before the polls closed on Tuesday, the Trump campaign was expecting. That this might be an issue that the ballot security might be an issue in this country, and they're prepared for that. If there's a challenge here to be done, Mayor Rudy Giuliani is on top of it, as are the 1200 lawyers. Now that air out on behalf of the Trump team, Jennifer, do you accept that there are some allegations that have been swirling around social media that have now been debunked? For example, the idea of ballot stuffing there was a video circulating claimed to show ballot stuffing. In Michigan. It was later shown that that video was shot in Russia. You mentioned the allegations of dead residents being allowed to vote in Nevada. Can you accept that Some of the information that is circulating has now been shown to be false? Sure it's interesting. You say that I actually asked friends of mine. I said, please stop posting on my Facebook while any video that you did not take yourself or you do not know who took it because I do think that a I is a problem. You know those videos that are matched up with different audio, So I'm very skeptical myself. I've been a fact checker at Fox News for presidential debate. So my standard is probably as high as yours. Is there at the BBC, But look, I also know people that I've known for 20 years. That said that they're dead. Grandmother got ballots, and they took the ballot to the polling place because they were concerned, and they saw that their dead grandmother in Las Vegas, Nevada in Clark County had actually voted in this election, and she'd been gone since seven years ago. So there are enough stories out there that I think we need to make sure that the count is accurate, and we need to make sure that every person who cast a ballot did so legally. If Joe Biden wins is shown to be the legitimate winner, do you think that Donald Trump Step down gracefully. I D'oh D'oh! Look, Donald Trump is the businessmen. He's lived his whole life. He's had losses before in his life. He's had a couple of divorces where he didn't come out the winner and those either. I think that he will and I have confidence that he will. However, I do think that Donald Trump is going to want at fair adjudication. And make sure that every legal vote that counted is counted and that votes that may have come in after that legal deadline may be seen with the most scrutiny. But I do think ultimately in the end. If he did not win, he will take his lumps and move forward.

"Under the Obama administration. The assistant secretary the bureaucrat under this who was charged with making sure universities are complying with title, nine started interpreting it much more broadly to include harassment and sexual assault. And they were defining these terms, so broadly that sort of anything that made someone feel feel uncomfortable for reasons of sex or gender could be considered a title nine problem, I wouldn't actually be if you brought this before court or something that would happen. But universities are compliance places. So if you have this big government bureaucracy, telling you, well, we kinda think you should do it this way. You're not gonna fight him. You're going to you're going to roll over. So they rolled over in ways that we're just disastrous for free speech because, again, speech related to sex gender. They're saying, well, if you're making people uncomfortable for that reason it violates federal law, and also due process. So when there's a student accused of sexual misconduct, they were saying, well, we would li-. To adjudicate this under this standard, and we really don't want you to have any like cross examination at the hearing. And we don't want to do any of these other things, so they were, they were literally obliterating to they really were for. I mean, there have been a hundred lawsuits brought by students usually male students often athletes, often male students of color, by the way or immigrants. Again, the normal issues in the criminal Justice system, where black people get arrested more for things. Totally true in the university of your accuracy as well. The students sued for saying, I was I was wrongfully accused or regardless of whether it was wrongful or not you violated my rights in do process, and they and when it goes to court they win. And then they, they sue, the university university is just caught because they're like, well, the government is going to yank are funding. If we don't do it the way they say, but we're gonna get sued and lose because this is ridiculous. This is a farce, and this was all because of this, this guidance from the Obama administration, but then it was so, so the activists component is activists. The guidance comes out in two thousand eleven. Sort of feminist activists on campus. I think started quickly realized within a few years of that title nine now was this rate tool for adjudicating grievances. Or for punishing people who engage in speech, the way you didn't like I mean, there's literally an activist group where the leaders of it got the numeral nine to their ankles, because that is how important this interpretation has been to too feminist activism. And they said, Laura kipness, price someone you're familiar with it was. But I there's all these cases there are cases that were never famous, you know where someone just got like an F on their on their exam. Because they wrote the name of their instructor wrong on it and someone said that you wrote, well, that's a pornographic actresses name. So you intended this as a sexual slur, so and the professor said, so we're concerned this would violate title nine I get it wouldn't. Right. Because that was actually. Right. I would agree with you. But what about those two? Kids, where there was one case of the two college students guy girl that were hooking up, and then they both went after each other for title nine, because they were basically trying to preempt each other started.

"Assistant secretary of health and human services, who's in charge of children and families. She told me initially there are about two thousand kids in the shelter system. Who are ready to be released and the next four to five days. I I know I asked assistant secretary Johnson, whether the extra vetting had accomplished anything, and we're finding that it's not adding anything to the protection or the safety for these children. The children should be home with their parents, the government makes lousy parents soil. So this is the first time the government has admitted that it's background checks were little over the top. And what has it been like in these shelters for these children? All. All this time. Will I spoke with a source in west, Texas, who's familiar with the operation of the tornado tent city out in the desert? It's the largest shelter in the system. And it's been the most criticized he said, it was only supposed to be open for thirty days. But it's been extended three times he says their staff is exhausted. Now, there are twenty eight hundred kids out there mainly teenage boys from Central America who came to the border without their parents. And they're running out of beds, the nonprofit that runs the camp let HHS know that it's contract is up in two weeks and the department had to do something to start downsizing the camp. So if all of these extreme extensive background checks were causing lengthy delays. There really wasn't any real justification for such extensive background checks. The government's admitting to that. Now, why was the government doing all of this in the first place? Well, I mean hatred chess has been hypersensitive to the safety of the kids in its care ever since a highly publicized incident four years ago. Are there was some a lot of reporting around migrant kids who were released to human trafficking rings that put the kids to work in an egg farm in Ohio. And the Trump administration said that was one of the reasons that initiated this extra screening. But today these shelters are more than ninety percent full. They were going to reach capacity any week now. So the government had to do something to avert a crisis. And the assistant secretary said one option is they could have even added more beds. But I think what weighed more heavily was that. I don't want to be causing any additional harm by keeping kids in care longer than they need to when they have a thoroughly vetted parent waiting for them. Then there was also the question of cost Elsa. The tent camp. For children is reportedly costing the government. Nearly a million dollars a day. You have two thousand employees out there. Taking care of twenty eight hundred kids now all along children's advocates have been highly critical of these shelters. They've said that detention is not good for kids. What's been their reaction today? So when organization called the National Center for youth law along with some other immigrant advocates filed a lawsuit last month challenging the extra backgrounding checks, and here is the reaction from the group's director of immigration Niha, deci when I told her about the real change. Wow. She said it never should have been initiated in the first place because it's causing so many children some as young as toddlers to be warehoused in these shelters. But I'm truly thrilled that the government has finally acknowledged it's deeply flawed approaching chosen to correct course. And she agreed it should dramatically reduce the number of kids in custody. And it's heartening that hundreds of them could be home for Christmas. It's wonderful news. That's NPR's John Burnett. Thanks, john. You bet also to another story. Now, the Trump administration is following through with a promised ban on bump stocks. President Trump talked about this earlier today this morning, we also completed the process to issue a new regulation banning bump stocks are the aftermarket gone attachments that let semi automatic rifles fire much more quickly effectively turn rifles into machine guns. The ban gives people ninety days either to destroy their bump stocks or turn the man NPR's Martin Kosti reports on how this change came about. And. Warning. This story contains the sound of gunfire. Before October of last year. Most people had no idea what a bump stock was then came the mass shooting in Las Vegas. Fifty eight people killed hundreds injured the gunmen shooting down to a crowd from his hotel.

"Well the first of all what i'd says that there is an irony to it because in the absence of having assistant secretaries of state and defense the government in many ways operates on some amount of autopilot out at embassies or at a military combatant commands the ironies it if they wanted to take the reins of american foreign policy they would have to fill these positions in so by leaving them unfilled they have a much less capability to implement any new policy direction in terms of their motivation and i think it's a mix of things at the state department clearly they have some agenda to cut and consolidate the department as a whole and they seem to be applying that principle without knowing how they're going to do it so they're gonna be these dramatic budget cuts that they would like to pursue their there talk of consolidating different apartments but by waiting to fill any positions until they figure that out they're not filling positions at in any restructuring they would have to have like assistant secretary of state for europe or asia or africa and really i cannot overstate uh what it means not have these positions these are the people who basically carry out us foreign policy so if we're going around to allies in asia to talk about north korea for one to japan or south korea or any number of countries china it's assistant secretary state who do that so were literally not on the field in these places so i think it's a mixture of an ideological gender to cut government a some incompetence and does not identifying people frankly probably some inability to find people who will go to work for them a given the combination of trepidation that people feel about going to work for trump in their own blacklist of republicans who signed letters and participated in the campaign against him but the end result is essentially america's not able to carry out its normal docket of global responsibilities.
