laboratory of essentially stealing government information and secrets with its malware software from the us an essay national security agency we actually had a statement from the u.s. homeland security secretary regarding the laboratory the risk that the russian government by their action on its own in collaboration with conspiracy could capitalize on access provided by kaspersky products to compromise federal information and information systems directly implicates u.s. national security now kaspersky laboratory responded to these allegations saying the company has never helped nor will help any government in the world with its cyber espionage or offensive cyber efforts because the laboratory considers itself to be a cyber company a software corporation it's not involved in government activities espionage or anything to that effect now at this point it is quite interesting to see that these allegations have been leveled against kaspersky laboratory when the cia
6:31 pm
specifically had a program designed to leave false digital fingerprints and make it look like software and malware activities were being done by kaspersky laboratories so a lot of questions are being raised people that browse the internet using software and malware may wonder now when they use such programs are they using programs that have been released and designed by the cia or is it actually kaspersky laboratories it's unclear as we see this program has been utilized by the cia to give false digital fingerprints. as kelly mentioned there vault eight is a new series of wiki leaks publications on a huge tranche of linked cia files that details some of the revelations in the previous batch called vault seven which revealed the agency had its own malware exploited vulnerabilities in phones and t.v.'s and that it had the ability to bypassing corruption on messaging apps for seven also featured a cia division called bridge which created
6:32 pm
a library of hacking techniques stolen from other countries the agency also had a tool to disguise its malware and make it seem like it had been created by somebody speaking a language other than english as languages included arabic chinese russian korean and farsi and that would make it more difficult to attribute a cyber attack to the cia i can speak now to peel luigi paganini's the chief technology officer c.s.c. . many thanks pierre luigi appreciate you coming on why you first of all kaspersky lab why would the siri choose this organization as a smokescreen. basically because a particular army is one of the most important to the wire and. forget about it got spare askew was. all. the. question the group i.q. does it was this. group or a group that was in more. use worldwide sought to get the best deal lab
6:33 pm
could there and then. cross the wall and make very hard. and. boards are possible in use where you could maybe give you permission on the company that was hired to bed. and of course just two months since washington decided it didn't want their spare skill known of its government computers do you see significance in the timing of the leak. i don't believe that the it's very important the timing basically what is important in this specific story is the complexity of the effort spent by the u.s. intelligence in order to make hard the attribution or course kaspersky the actual big thing of the these activities bots are anyway the most important things in these aspects is that there is a government argentine the central intelligence agency that these are conducted
6:34 pm
cyber espionage activities trying to to make to also use a fossil a again it's operation new that we make are the attribution so this is very important i'm sure mostly the answer prize to hear of a spy agency doing you know untoward activities such as stakes but how surprising is the extent of their operations does it shock you that they have a special program to control now their operations the savage speaking i'm not surprised because almost any any intelligence r.g.c. is actively working in order to prove cyber capabilities we also know that u.s. intelligence or many u.s. intelligence arjen see already working its way specific kind of platforms so this is just a new information that we can we can get or we can collect about the anyway we all know that the u.s. intelligence is already working through this kind of plotting poem since a lot of time and if anybody thought that spying was conducted at some kind of
6:35 pm
jane's bond gentlemanly level i think those solutions would have been shattered now because we again have the cia accused of mimicking other companies other countries clearly trying to lay blame at their doors you think there'll be any kind of international reaction. let me say so it's quite normal that any intelligence agency work in defense in order to make are the attribution considering for example the central intelligence agency we all know that at the least the ambridge group that there was a specific created inside the agency in order to get or information from a for rain attacks ok so attacks conducted the world wide and the gather any kind of information about it yacking technique this is done for many reasons first of all because it could be useful to watch a goofy attack this way for a. group of our guests but it has also been a sportsman for example that will do you use the cost of developing us to see if
6:36 pm
you care cyber weapons for example integrating pacificus to hiking the two second point of use in the by other sock torso worldwide in the course using the tools and the techniques are adopted by other actors who are wired to mix very hard at the attribution i can tell you that the ga is not the unique argentine that he's involved in this kind of what the this let's consider for example was not square we also know that the law does a group that is another group with a pretty group with easy believe it to be linkable to what korean. governments are also uses it uses the such kind of techniques you know this to. make are the attribution and so it may be a large use of foss flag inside the for example the source code though it's a model where nike until. it's a fascinating story has a notice to most if not all western media completely ignoring it fascinating the

silence many thanks pre-show your views pierluigi paganini chief technology officer at c.s.c. side sec. now you know if this is trying to sow divisions in russia ahead of march's presidential election not my view this is according to vladimir putin who added that it comes as retaliation for moscow's alleged hacking right now it's sport that's in the crosshairs. thank you for that. there are serious concerns that in response to a perceived meddling in the u.s. election they want to cause problems during the presidential election in russia during the olympic games due to be held in february and when is the presidential election in milledge here are concerns that someone says so discontent among sports fans and the athletes that the government is somehow responsible for the violations . so the statement actually came when putin was asked about fresh waves of doping allegations against russian athletes on thursday for example we had the results from four russian skiers an old who participated in the sochi olympics and they
6:38 pm
were banned for life from the games and that's a repeat of exactly what we saw last week when two other russian skiers were also accused of violating doping rules now the accusations continue to flow and are all centered around the idea that this was a state sponsored scheme now something that something that moscow has of course repeatedly denied including putin himself the key allegations behind the idea that this doping was state sponsored revolve around the idea that the samples from the russian athletes were in fact tampered with however putin highlighted the fact that when those samples were sent off just after the sochi olympics when they were sent to a lab in switzerland they were received and no complaints were leveled at the time was only because the switch just a few months following the sochi olympics acting on the instructions of the i.o.c. we handed over all those samples to elysium laboratory which is essentially under what is controlled there were no complaints whatsoever on receiving those samples
6:39 pm
so the samples have been stored there for two or three years and only then did questions arise that the vials might have been opened or simply been doing with the samples has been scratching no biting them there so the fact that these accusations are emerging again right now isn't a coincidence in the present is given that the presidential election is just over one hundred days away and that starts just one month after the big. i think of the winter games so that's essentially sort of encouraging a really tense climate in the run up to the election ok so where does the united states come into this well putin sees this as an answer by the u.s. for the allegations that russia interfered in the two thousand and sixteen presidential election sort of an eye for an eye reaction and that's made possible by the fact that the i.o.c. the international olympic committee is highly dependent on sponsors and those buying ads and of course the bulk of that cash is in fact coming from the u.s. according to putin who also under that with calling for improvement to the
6:40 pm
anti-doping system in the sports world world clearly he sees a number of inconsistency is there sports not the only field where russia is under pressure the u.s. justice department has ordered anti america to register as a foreign agent and do so by monday if the broadcaster doesn't do so bank accounts could be frozen controversial legislation being used was adopted more than seventy years ago prior to world war two but then that was to counter nazi propaganda in america the russian embassy in the u.s. said in a facebook post the measures against russian media could be in breach of international freedom of press principles. pressure put on russian media shows that the u.s. keeps moving along the path of deliberate worsening of relations between russia and america and we see the latest demands as an effort to quote of alternative information and then acceptable breach of international principles of the freedom of the press we coolin organizations which monitor the situation in the us with regard to media to react accordingly it will be interesting to see how the reacts
6:41 pm
we expect an appropriate to six months of the situation from the unesco goodwill ambassador for freedom of expression and journalist safety christiane amanpour. the pressure on russian media doesn't and their u.s. lawmakers are now considering a bill that proposes that cable and satellite providers aren't required to carry video content that in some way linked to the kremlin that means providers could decide for themselves whether to show such content or not was important to note here though is that the bill is yet to be approved. and russia has promised a similar response with some top politicians proposing to move if the bill is adopted unless the writer knew clarke believes the pressure on russian media is actually down to his recent success or this is absolutely outrageous i think we could quit mcafee's of what it really is mccarthyism on steroids now and it's a signal from the escalation in this cold war launched by the us against russian
6:42 pm
media r.t. as a growing audience share in america around the world in r.t. puts a different narrative out to the war party narrative on issues like the syrian conflict for example so i think the war mongers in the us are very angry that artie's been so successful and i think it would be wholly wrong for the head of r.t. america to actually comply with this and to and to say that he's a foreign agent or to a foreign agent to be wholly wrong what i think their response to this should be to carry on i also think it might be a good idea for the russians to say that if this goes ahead that from monday all american journalists who work for c.n.n. have to register as foreign agents in russia or they'll be arrested you can play this game. kuwait has just told its citizens to leave lebanon immediately that just hours after saudi arabia ordered its citizens to do the same lebanon was rocked by the sudden resignation of its prime minister over the weekend earlier the who's seen as a politician backed by saudi arabia and when he was in riyadh when he made his
6:43 pm
announcement as the reason for his resignation he cited iranian influence in his country journalist martin j. thinks that this is a manufactured crisis. there is an agenda to try and destabilize or run to and to create some sort of tension in the region and these are the first steps ordering service which is a somewhat of a few it's all just a given that or hardly any cell use in eleven of the movements but there are a few kuwaitis or quite a few who are to tourists what's the link you might be asking yourself to lebanon will start hariri a lot of people don't know is also a saudi citizen. spent most of his life in saudi arabia and is considered to be a sort of a saudi porn to put it bluntly and so they've pulled mystery over back to saudi arabia in a sort of panic last week a couple of times and forced him to resign as lebanese premier as part of a bigger longer term plan to try and destabilize lebanon to shake tire lebanon so
6:44 pm
as to make a point to hezbollah and to the region that there's a new there's a new guy in town a new leader in saudi arabia who's got a new agenda to play out as more to mention saudi arabia is unhappy with the strengthening of has billard in lebannon group sponsored by iran and tensions between riyadh and tehran have been rising for a while with mounting concern a direct confrontation could break out soon as the explained recently barely a day seems to go by without saudi arabia making headlines and it almost always boils down to it's arch enemy iran it is a game of chess that spans an entire region on every front in every country the saudis see iran's evil influence.
6:45 pm
those who the rebels in yemen who saudi arabia has been bombing for many years fire a rocket riyadh that the saudis could only describe as a rainy and aggression. iran's role and its direct command of his hooty proxy in this matter constitutes a clear act of aggression the coalition's c'mon considers this a blatant active military aggression by the iranian regime and could rise to be considered as an act of war against the kingdom of saudi arabia the saudis also ready to throw that allies under the bus to create an excuse to denigrate iran. q the lebanese prime minister holding a successful.
