Cyberattack halts major US gas pipeline

US energy company, Colonial Pipeline, has said that a cyber-attack forced it to temporarily halt all operations on a major pipeline that delivers roughly 45% of all fuel consumed on the East Coast. The pipeline transports gasoline, diesel and jet fuel. The attack, Friday, included ransomware according to the Washington Post. The precise nature of the attack was unclear, including who launched it.

Cyber attack from China and/or Russia. Wonder if they're using Dominion. Good thing a strong man is leading the country. Nothing can bring him down... Except for the usual stairs and the odd teleprompter... He'll sort this out... If he can get his caretakers' approval to even speak to the media. Anyway... Brace people. Stock up. It's only the beginning.

World war three will not be fought on the battlefield or with bullets and bombs but in cyberspace and communications. To win we need to educate as many students as possible, not just the wealthy ones, because most gifted minds come from humble backgrounds.

One swip of the pen and he will kill that pipeline too. Just to make America die over the high prices at the pump.
