The US Deep State/Military/Intelligence/NWO is very competent and effective, clearly.

Quote:
Most of the targets' work was classified. Yet as many as 40 percent of them clicked on the hackers' phishing links, the AP analysis indicates. That was the first step in potentially opening their personal email accounts or computer files to data theft by the digital spies.
Quote:
Palantir and a manager of cloud platform operations at SAP National Security Services, two companies that do extensive government work. Another target was at Mellanox Federal Systems, which helps the government with high-speed storage networks, data analysis and cloud computing. Its clients include the FBI and other intelligence agencies.

Yet of the 31 targets reached by the AP, just one got any warning from U.S. officials.
Quote:
Cybersecurity experts say it's no surprise that spies go after less secure personal email as an opening to more protected systems. "For a good operator, it's like hammering a wedge," said Richard Ford, chief scientist at the Forcepoint cybersecurity company. "Private email is the soft target."

Some officials were particularly upset by the failure to notify employees of cloud computing companies that handle data for intelligence agencies. The cloud is a "huge target for foreign intelligence services in general -- they love to get into that shared environment," said Sowell, the former adviser to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence.

"At some point, wouldn't someone who's responsible for the defense contractor base be aware of this and try to reach out?" he asked.

(Cue obligatory reference to Hanlonís Razor.)

I am not being sarcastic in this thread at all. Believe me.

Spearphishing is the most effective hacking tool because it works. People have always been the weakest link in any security system.

Fortunately for the NWO, their leadership are not people but Satanic Reptilians. Or so I've been told on the Internet, which hasn't failed me yet!

I like to believe the Deep State is a secret branch of the military that can be deployed at any time. During peacetime and non-urgent periods it lies dormant within the CIA and Pentagon offices, likely what Lisa Page was referring to with her "secret society" *nudge *wink.
