"Sharyl Attkisson Joins KMOX’s Mark Reardon To Discuss Controversial New Book"
On CBSlocal St. Louis, Mark Reardon posted a recent exchange he had with Sharyl Attkisson, including this and more:
"SA: I don’t know. Hacking is a word that of implies to me sort of a single event — an in, an out. The forensics exams, three separate ones, have shown a long term monitoring and surveillance that went on both in my CBS laptop computer as well as on my home Apple computer. It’s pretty chilling when you consider the extent of the abilities they had, according to the forensics reports, to monitor my every keystroke, to activate Skype by getting the password to my account, and listen through Skype on to audio if I was talking in the room or talking on the phone. Being able to exfiltrate files using Skype, downloading and refreshing these surveillance methods periodically using something called a BGAN satellite terminal, using WiFi when I was at a Ritz Carlton at one point. I mean they left some very distinct trails because I don’t think they ever thought I would have the ability to have highly-skilled specialized forensics people be able to find what was in there. Ordinary computer analysts may be very good, but unless they know exactly where to look and they’re familiar with some of the proprietary government practices, I’m told, they will never be able to find the things that were found in my computer. But I was able to go to some very good sources."
