Got preps?

A code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been detected within the system of a Vermont utility, according to U.S. officials.

While the Russians did not actively use the code to disrupt operations of the utility, according to officials who spoke on condition of anonymity in order to discuss a security matter, the penetration of the nation’s electrical grid is significant because it represents a potentially serious vulnerability. Government and utility industry officials regularly monitor the nation’s electrical grid because it is highly computerized and any disruptions can have disastrous implications for the function of medical and emergency services.

    If the Russian hackers are as good and Putin is as much of a devil as Obama says, will we see the utilities fail to work in former-President Obama’s new house in DC? Will his bank balance drop to zero and his card cards be declined?

      If the Russkis are as good as Obama says they are, they’re good enough to do this without leaving their fingerprints all over it.

    Dude, the U.S. Strategic Command (NORAD) still relies on floppy discs for launch command and control.

    Yes. Those same discs that we left in the late 70’s early 80’s with Apple IIe’s.

    Our electrical grid was my first target guess after 9/11.

    A Moisin Nagant rifle can leave Manhattan and millions in the dark as the substation north of Yonkers is only guarded by a chain link fence.

    NBC did a Dateline episode on the vulnerability of “our” grid, let alone the hacking aspect, 15 years ago.

    False flag?
    While I have no doubt that many countries, including Russia, have hacked into our grid and likely have “cyberbombs” in place to be activated in case of war, I don’t believe anything the Obama administration says, particularly if they’re blaming Russia.

    Yeah. This is the same “Grizzly Steppe” that Obama claims stole the elections with:

    The FSB is “thought to be”… (hacking)

    The GRU, Russia’s military intelligence service, is “thought to be”… (hacking)

    Of course, I consider the source feed, and who is feeding, the feed…

    Coming right out after this…

    In which case, the gamma-male and fem-skank libtards are having another hissy-fit melt-down tonight trending on Twitter (as “V. Putin”), and Putin and Trump are homo-lovers, and everyone who voted for Trump are traitors. And of course, this story that you posted, just happened to come out after this started trending, in which case, the usuals used it as further evidence that we are all Russians now, and again, traitors for voting Trump.

    What we are watching is a massive USgov propaganda warfare on the American people, and Europe (and Russia) by the Neo-Cons, US-NATO, and Military Industrial Complex. And the Globalists.

    Just in: POTUS Barack Obama promises Putin to release sanctions if Putin allows Pussy Riot to perform and defecate in Russian Orthodox Churches. – It’s a globalist joke.

      Obfuscation all over the place. The more they scream the easier it is to find them.
      Putin did the correct thing, he declined to play with stupid people.

    I wonder if this “Russian” code has anything to do with all the Russian Women Nude Pics I keep getting in my email.

  6. orlin sellers says:

    This from a ‘fake news’ site. Nothing to see here.

  7. crazyeighter says:

    Innn-teresting how this story breaks right after the Democrat hacking story and Obama’s punishing those pesky Russians….

  8. bobbookworm says:

    Apparently the malicious code was found on a laptop not connected to the grid…somebody just picked up a bug surfing but that wasn’t scary enough…so no mention of the laptop just the Vermont utility “system”

    • Familyman says:

      Exactly.
      This is just some idiot employee who has a lap top with some malware.
      It’s not connected to the Vermont grid.
      Fake news/liberal hysteria.

    So “someone hacked the election”…..
