Open Letter To CrowdStrike
I have reached out to you via your press@ email address and tried calling a few times but my calls were not returned and I have queries regarding the malware found on the DNC Network in 2016 (and other work with the DNC around that time) that remain unanswered that I would like to try to get answers on:
- Please could you confirm if/when there were any incidents of email data being transmitted to unauthorized parties that were recorded in your investigations?
With the emails released by Wikileaks dating as late as May
2016 and with your company's claims about the software it installed on the network in April, you surely had a lot more information than appears in the Washinton Post article on 14th June 2016. (Where the only revelation offered was the description of a file that Guccifer 2.0 would release as his first - the day immediately after that report was published)
- Besides the presence of the malware code, what other indicators of Russian state involvement were observed and recorded specifically in relation to the DNC's mail server?
- Did the DNC request that you find activity relating to authorized network users (eg. Looking for information relating to DNC staff activities)?
- Was Crowdstrike contacted by anyone at the DNC on 12th-13th of June?
- Was Crowdstrike requested to find the source of the leaks that Assange mentioned on the 12th of June?
- On 14th June 2016 it was reported that the Trump Opposition Research file was targeted. - What evidence was this statement based on?
- Was any evidence for the above (Trump Opposition Research being targeted) disclosed to any intelligence agencies (and if it was, please can you state approximately when that was and which agency or agencies were provded with the evidence?)
- If hackers stole two files and were locked out of DNC by the 14th, as seems to have been reported by Shawn Henry - How did Guccifer2.0 manage to acquire more documents without the same detection system triggering?
- Was any evidence logged with federal agencies in 2016 regarding the "last of the hackers" that you were reported to be clearing out from the DNC's network (on the weekend of 11th-12th of June 2016)?
Please could you provide as much information as you are willing to disclose on any/all of the above?
