Interview on TYT: Russian Hacks and Politicized Cyber Attribution

Michael Tracy interviews me for TYT about my investigation for the Baffler on the inflated history of Russian cyber attacks and the politicized nature of cyber attribution. We also discuss the St. Petersburg subway terrorist attack, which took place a few hundred yards away from my apartment.

TYT Politics reporter Michael Tracey ( is joined by reporter Yasha Levine ( from St. Petersburg, Russia. They discuss the recent terrorist attack on the city's subway, how Russians view the American political class's obsession with Putin, and whether private firms like CrowdStrike can be trusted to make authoritative attributions of "hacks."

(This discussion took place prior to the US strikes on Syria last Thursday)
