“The Russian government is responsible for attacks on the US election parties. This is well know because the IP address of the attackers are in Russia.”
So claims the national TV news. And that is totally garbage!
And it illustrates the stupid ignorance of our national TV news authorities.
A Russian government attack would use US hosting company servers and the attack would be extremely difficult to trace. What the “TV News” is reporting is/are the many amateur hackers based in Russia, India, China, the US and everywhere around the world.
Hacking is a game and many ruskies love it. Google for black hat hackers websites just to see. The IP (internet protocol) address is the location of the server. If you use Comcast, Yahoo, AOL, Google or any other hosting company, your IP address will be involved.
Interested in your IP address. Go to ipaddress.com and click the My IP tab on the top of the page. You can see where your server is located. Try entering a website address such as amazon.com, gigharbortimes.com or yahoo.com, etc to see where their servers are located.
This is simple child’s play. The Russian government would not use Russian servers. They would either route through a US server or simply hire a US server. Or perhaps they might use a United Kingdom server to make the attack look like it was from Britain.
The distasteful display of ignorance by our national TV news is disgusting. Beware of what you see on TV, even from the “news”.
