Are Cyber Attacks Live Drills For What Is To Come?

Are These Cyber Attacks Live Drills for What is Coming Later this Summer?
 Thomas Müller

By sheer cowinkydink, another ransomware attack has taken down operations of another major American industry. This time, the target is America’s largest meat processer, JBS.

White House Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Tuesday said that the hacker group behind the attack is “likely based in Russia.”

Wednesday morning, in another of a series of whodathunk moments, the FBI issued a statement revealing that Russian-linked hackers “REvil and Sodinokibi” are behind the ransomware attack on JBS meat processing facilities.

JBS acquired a fake, plant-based meat company for $500 million, and its CEO has been using Joe Biden’s “build back better” slogan and other World Economic Forum and United Nations jargon. It has moved into the faux-burger market in Europe.

First, it was Texas energy, then the Colonial gas pipeline and now meat. All of this is happening as shortages are commonplace, caused by massive economic distortions from lockdowns, money printing crack up boom and “stimulus,” and putting people on permanent unemployment largesse. Is this a distraction to justify the rise in prices (aka inflation)?

As another precursor to yet another drill going live — namely, the July 9, 2021, Cyber Polygon cyberattack “exercise” simulations — we learn that overnight downdector users reported AT&T service across the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area experienced widespread outages.

About the same time, Apple reported problems with the functioning of its Apple Card credit card and payment system that was affecting all users.

The Cyber Polygon exercise will focus on simulating the downing of the global internet, as well as disruptions to power supplies and control grids.

That’s right. In July, the summer month for peak heat in most of North America, there will be forced power outages.

What will happen when the air conditioning goes out while temperatures hover around 100 F in America’s largest cities?

The final spark for the long, hot, summer conflagration will be when Darren Chauvin is exonerated on a technicality.

And it’s not exactly like a warning hasn’t been issued by the Wizard of Oz, Mr. Diabolica himself, Klaus Schwab. He announced at the last World Economic Forum gathering that the coming “cyber pandemic will make COVID-19 look like a non-event.”

Anyone beginning to see a pattern?

Watch for more “attacks” on anything and everything that supports self-sufficient, regional or middle class economies, such as the hack that nearly poisoned the water supply of Oldsmar, Florida, in February.

We’ve seen how easy it is to scare people with a flu that rarely kills old fat already ill people. Just think how scared and aggressive people will be with no gas in their tank or no food on their table, or in sweltering heat without air conditioning. You think Popeyes chicken shacks are dangerous now, just wait.

Shock the system and test the results. First an energy shock, then an oil shock, now a food shock; and, yes, they probably have a money shock planned for the future.

So, time to go with the nice, safe, government-backed, digital dollar? The best way to deploy it is to get people clamoring for it.

They will use this to disable access to “unsafe” dissident sites, just as Cass Sunstein and his ilk recommended.

This is a fifth-generation world war being run by a global Crime Syndicate, and the enemy is any and all competition. They use alarmist imperatives as a cover for yet more greed, corruption, enslavement and to feed their lust for power and control.

Since publishing this earlier today, ZeroHedge News is reporting about another Cyberattack on the Massachusetts ferry system.

The Hacks Keep On Comin’: Mass. Ferry Service Suffers Cyberattack; New York’s MTA Admits April Breach

by ZeroHedge News

In what is certain to be a recurring theme that has already been thrust into prominence with recent ransomware hacks of the Colonial Pipeline and JBS, the world’s largest meat producer, cybercriminals struck yet another target on Wednesday: the US state of Massachusetts ferry system. Additionally, the MTA admitted this week that it was the target of an April attack.

Service between several upscale northeastern coastal communities was disrupted as a result of the ferry system attack, according to AFP. The attack was reported by The Steamship Authority of Massachusetts, which offers ferry service between Cape Cod, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

The Authority tweeted out: “There is no impact to the safety of vessel operations, as the issue does not affect radar or GPS functionality.”‘

However, the hack did hit the Authority where it could arguably hurt worse: its payment system. The ferry was temporary limited to cash (gasp) after it lost its ability to process credit cards. On Facebook, the Authority wrote that it was “…unable to release or confirm specific details of what occurred,” but that it was working with local, state, and federal officials to figure out the incident.

In keeping with the theme of mass transit, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) revealed on Wednesday that it was also hacked on April 20. 

“The attack on the M.T.A. did not involve financial demands and instead appears to be part of a recent series of widespread intrusions by sophisticated hackers believed to be backed by the Chinese government,” the Times wrote. The MTA was one target out of a group of “dozens” of federal agencies, the report notes.

But the growing theme not only of targeting mass transit – but also of ransomware attacks in general – are both worth keeping a close eye on, as these feel like anything but isolated incidents.

We have NSA, Military Intel, Pentagon, National Security from known Agencies, for what reasons again? Aren't those that gather Intel through Artificial Intelligence, Bio-Metric's, Satellites, wire-tapping, spies, etc. to know what is going on, when it's to happen, how it's to be implemented, and have the tools to stop those attacks?

After 9/11 for foiling future Terrorist Attacks which any Cyber Attack as description indicates, would need immediate attention to abort such an event, did not we put in place safe-guards? Besides abuse of power to spy on our own citizen's as reputed, we still had recent Germ-Warfare Attack from CCP it's reputed! Why did we fail to detect such a massive attack, and allowed disinformation from Fauci, WHO, CDC, Propaganda from MSM, whomever else involved needing their funding, about what cheap medicine's do work, all the while folks died as the folks with invested interest, waited on experimental vaccines from BIG PHARMA, as reputed? Too many unanswered questions, and feels like the enemies are among us, right!?

Expectations are, if Billionaires give clues to impending attacks, our National Security better look into to those predictions closely first, gather info they know, how they know what they know, and STOP anything else from occurring to the American Citizen's of the USA on our soil, in my opinion. No worries, right? Nothing makes sense, it's like our attacker's warn us first, then strike while our protector's watch? HUH? Investigate after massive damage, and then what? Does anything get done to bad players? If not, the SAME criminals go to their next crime, right? GOD help this Nation overcome stupidity going on, thank-you!! American's can't understand why all is allowed to happen so easily to this beautiful Nation, how did Evil become so integrated into the Government for the People? Being compromised is one thing, not fixing it is a grave concern after many failures, IMO! Prayers God intervenes in next planned attack since man has been making bad choices that affects some very innocent good people! Prayers this backfires big time on all the bad guys in the know, and involved!
