Cyberattack Forces a Shutdown of a Top U.S. PipelineI don't mind you crapping on Uncle Creepy but this might be more related to the Colonial Pipeline hack than his shitty policies.
One of the nation’s largest pipelines, which carries refined gasoline and jet fuel from Texas up the East Coast to New York, was forced to shut down after being hit by ransomware in a vivid demonstration of the vulnerability of energy infrastructure to cyberattacks.
The operator of the system, Colonial Pipeline, said in a vaguely worded statement late Friday that it had shut down its 5,500 miles of pipeline, which it says carries 45 percent of the East Coast’s fuel supplies, in an effort to contain the breach. Earlier Friday, there were disruptions along the pipeline, but it was not clear at the time whether that was a direct result of the attack or of the company’s moves to proactively halt it.
The FBI confirmed on Monday that the ransomware group responsible for the compromise of the Colonial Pipeline network is DarkSide, pinning the blame on an experienced group of cyber criminals who have already hacked into scores of companies in the U.S. and Europe.
