Chris Krebs: Ransomware Attackers ‘Know Where Their Bread’s Buttered’


  1. Now we know why every time a WH aid walked in on Trump talking to Russians , he would start eating paper notes !

    1. @K.W. Matterhorn Your voices say that, huh? There is help but it will be expensive for you. Good luck.

    2. @katy bassett Those crises originated with Biden’s Handlers of course.
      Your coma was deep, huh? Sorry, hope you are recovering.

    3. @Ro G What you describe is called ‘whistling through the graveyard’ (That was an insult, Cletus).

  2. I assume this attack is being handled differently because it’s really a foreign policy episode: Putin laying his cards on the table… presumably with a grin he’ll soon regret.

    1. @The Alpengeist again Philly is one city with historic problems. and the mayor did not give a rundown of crime in that quote. for all he said, crime could be down.
      so you never made your point, just some noise.

    2. @tieck – “According to new data from the Philadelphia Police department, homicides are up 30 percent in 2021 year-to-date.” How is that down???

    3. @tieck Last time I checked homicide is a crime and what I should have said was crime in larger Democrat-run cities, my mistake.

  3. Nothing of this magnitude happens without Putin say so. Notice they haven’t been hunted down and arrested.

    1. It’s an inside job to get more money for the oil, since demand is still low, since we have not fully reopened yet.

    1. That was the USSR, and Chernobyl is in Ukraine.
      I think there are plenty of things you can blame Russia for, but Chernobyl is more complicated.

    2. @RogerWilco It was a Russian design, no? There are more of the same design reactors in other places in the old USSR.

    3. @RogerWilco Ukrain had been occupied by Russia for decades when Chernobyl happened, so it was a Russian disaster.

  4. Shouldn’t have chased Edward Snowden out of the country. The government should instead of procecuting American hackers. Give them jobs. It’s time to think outside of the box.

    1. **absolutely,, Edward Snowden is a hero!!! Why,, does it take a computer, to send oil through a pipeline.. can’t they hire people to open and close valves and read pressures!!! WE ARE TOO DEPENDENT ON COMPUTERS!!!**

    2. Ed Snowden fled before anyone could chase him. He wasn’t a brilliant hacker so much as a paid contract employee who (allegedly) misused his government access. If it was all legit, he can come back home and defend himself in court. This offer will always open to him.

    3. ​@Dr. G It’s interesting how people on one hand stand against gov overreach and abuse of power. On the other hand, when whistleblowers expose such abuses, people then line up behind the same gov against the “traitors” who exposed them.

      Snowden cannot just come back and “defend himself in court” in the way that you would expect. He is charged with Espionage, and the US has very restrictive rules regarding how a person can even defend themselves against such a charge. There are things he is not allowed to say, evidence he is not allowed to provide to a jury, all sorts of restrictions on HOW he can defend himself against the charge that tip the scales immensely in favour of the gov and make it practically impossible to have a fair trial. If he returns without having been pardoned, a conviction is almost guaranteed.

    4. @cleogyrl I’m not on any side. If Snowden is afraid he won’t get a fair trial, his decision to remain in Russia might make sense to him. He was granted permanent residency in the Russian Federation just 6 months ago, so it’s totally up to him.

  5. Let’s put everything on the internet. What could possibly go wrong…go wrong…go wrong…gogogogogogogo…gggggggg….

  6. I would love to hear the phone calls Mitch McConnell is receiving from the oil lobby. They are probably pretty upset about him killing every cybersecurity bill

    1. I imagine they’re pretty happy with him. I imagine they’ll request and receive “bailout money”, at taxpayer’s expense (after jacking up fuel prices for everyone).

    2. @Robert Fritzenkotter BTW don’t forget
      Robert Fritzenkotter the biggest Cry Sis on the planet with his,
      “Waaaaaah. Biden won and he stole my rattle. Waaaaah.”

  7. I wonder where’s going all that information about those ballots in Arizona.
    Watch out America.

    1. Are they recording all that Info and sending it electronically to Russia via hackers invited in?????

    1. @KW Matterhorn – Typical lib. Yeah let’s blame everything on Trump. Not one word was said about Trump, and Schiff always goes to the Russia card with no evidence. Your word “Guaranteed”. Back it up! You can’t. Just spout rhetoric. You are a real piece of work.

    2. @Gary Miller ..did you watch the video? The Guy said they operate out of Russia…what is wrong with you? Ransom ware warfare is a tech tool that Russia is the user of. Krebs is a Republican I don’t think he is lying he obviously has had an intelligence briefing.

  8. Putin a few weeks ago said he would take revenge on any sanctions. I think he used the term “non-symmetrical”. Anyone picked up on that?

  9. Scary times. Why do we even have PC’s? Look at all the ID theft. They even have some entity that reads your emails and suggests responses. Big Brother.

  10. My kid just graduate with a BS in Cyber security. Guess she’ll never be out of a job. Everyone is being hacked.

  11. This was probably part of the cyber attack courtesy of the last guy.💻 And his minions🕸️

  12. Man I have to wonder if Trump gave info to the Russians so he/they could sabatoge Biden’s presidency. I really wouldn’t find it hard to believe!

  13. Why end there, Chuck?? Because frankly, that’s more interesting, and I’d be interested in hearing Krebs’ take on _that._

  14. Since the last week of March, Mon;ero has seen exponential growth. A low of $204 seen during March 25 and a high of $438 a week ago represented gains of over 110% and for the last few sessions, the rally was kept at bay under the $440-mark and some bearishness was noted in the market. According to Awesome Oscillator’s red bars, momentum was on the bearish side, but the hourly timeframe did see a positive switch up. A strong region of support lay at $388 and maintain this would allow for a breakout above $440. Meanwhile, ADX rested at 15 and highlighted a weak trend. The 24-hour trading volumes jumped by 40% in the last 24-hours but were yet to touch $1 Billion. Expect some sideways movement before the volumes jump further because the v0latility nature of the crpytO asset is a plus for trαders because it’s good for trαdiing and if trαdes are placed correctly that’s constant profits which in turn increases your portfolio, which is why I copy trade with Burwell Coleman because his trαde signals are the most accurate and I have been making 6btc every month for the last eight months in a row. His on ահαեsαթթ (+44 7723 022159) and Gm@il (burwellcolemanfinance@gmailcom). Burwell is so good that I can attest to the accuracy of his trαde s!gnαls which is why I would recommend him for any trαder looking to stay profitable.

    1. I cant forget the first words Burwell Coleman ever told me, is to “never hoard your coins if u ever want to make profit, but trading would always guarantee you making money and profit”.

    2. Mr. Burwell’s ability to create strategies that works in accordance with the market trend is something that comes easy to him and I am happy I am able to take advantage of that with his trade signals

    3. If you love trading and want to find an effective supportive manager that will help you become the best possible trader, you need to be a part Burwell’s mentorship
