America Attacked by Secret Foe

US companies are being hacked.

Bloomberg News reported that the company paid the ransom in untraceable cryptocurrency and received a decrypting tool to restore their computer network, according to “two people familiar with the transaction.” Though the company received a decrypting tool, it ran very slowly according to the report.

The FBI confirmed Monday that the Darkside ransomware hacker group was responsible for the digital attack on a pipeline providing up to 50 percent of gas on the East Coast. Darkside is believed to operate in Russia and Eastern Europe.

By Tuesday and Wednesday, many states on the East Coast suffered crippling fuel shortages as President Joe Biden and his administration struggled to respond to the crisis.

The White House on Monday acknowledged private companies in ransomware situations like Colonial Pipeline Co. sometimes had to pay the fee to hackers.

“We recognize that victims of cyberattacks often face a very difficult situation,” Deputy National Security Advisor for Cyber and Emerging Technologies Anne Neuberger told reporters at the White House on Monday. “And they have to just balance off, in the cost-benefit, when they have no choice with regard to paying a ransom.”

Neuberger said that Colonial was a private company and would defer any questions about paying a ransom to them.

  1. Let’s shut down Moscow’s grid for 24 hours to show them what we can do. Also ask for repayment of the ransom money plus $10,000,000 in damages. Donate the money to Covid research.

  2. When are we going to stop fucking around with these types of folks. Time to get rid of them using any means o=within our arsenal. Of course Uncle Joe will do nothing and matters will get much worse.

  3. SEEK OUT AND ARREST THE HEADS OF THIS ” DARK SIDE RANSOME WARE ” AND CONFISCATE ALL THERE ELECTRONIC GEAR INCLUDING THEIR C-PHONSE AND CHARGE THEM WITH FEDERAL EXTORTION NO MATER WHERE THEY ARE! IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES, PUT THE CIA TO WORK FERRITING OUT THESE RATS AND FINALIZE THERE OPERATION!

  4. Stupid DEMONRATS.
    PRESIDENT TRUMP would not have allowed that to happen. The knowledge is there to counter-act. But this plays in the textbook of the DEMONRATS.
    The Conservatives must pay for their love of PRESIDENT TRUM. I would not be surprised if they find out, like fauci paying the chinese, that the DEMONRATS paid the Ukrainians to hack that company. They asked way too small a sum for the ransom!

  5. Hmn, Propblably the Biden (Oboma) administration that did it. Even if it was Russia, what’s the difference. They’re all evil scum. They are both enemies of the United States of America.

  6. Ptesident Trump didn’t pay ransom when he was in office. He didn’d make businesses with hackers or with terrorists. NOR WARS either.
