    1. @mike briganti aren’t there some buildings you should be storming because your foxitus is flaring up again?

    2. Won’t be surprised if Lyndsey Graham tells trump senate confidentiality and trump and kushner use back channels and report them to Putin.

  1. How many bills died on Mitch McConnell’s desk meant to deal with this very issue

    1. @Cranberry Chronicles They think like gangsters because let’s be honest, Putin is not a politician, he is a mob boss. Once in a while he shows his adversaries that he can make life for them difficult and this action shows how badly prepared America is for cyber warfare and it certainly intimidates and frustrates Americans. This is psychological warfare.

    2. Instead of blaming Russia or China meaby it’s a great idea to listen to the real specialist and ask the question if these bigg company’s have to adequate security they need. How mutch do they spend on cyber security and how up to date is it. There are a lot of domestic hackers who could have done the hacking.

    3. @mike briganti you claim others are drinking soy and are crying but you’re the one making an emotional plea about your lack of manhood…

  2. Must invest in protecting, improving, and maintenance of infrastructure; in this age, it also critically needs to include digital access/controls which probably will require constant upgrading to remain relevant

  3. “I have President Putin here.
    He says it’s not Russia.
    I will say this: I don’t see any reason why it would be.”

    1. @Mike Davis David Dennison… I mean Carolin Gallego… or was it John Miller? No? OK, John Barron?
      Oh… OK… Donald Drumpf.
      Yes, Drumpf… look it up.

    2. @Piotr Trebisz Well it makes sense, Putin nor the Republicans believe in democracy. They are both FASCISTS!

  4. We’ve talking about this for a few yrs now, but companies dont want to spend money nor the government mayb now they’ll pay more attention!!

    1. I guess that this big company wants the us government to help them out of this mess and yet these companies criticize not to help the common citizens who they say don’t want to work.

    2. Why? Andrew they just know that they can blame the US government, and you would fall for it. Notice that no one was force to resign or quit. So they are just going keep making the same mistake over and over again, while the American people pick up the bill.

  5. Trump just reported that Putin said it wasn’t Russia but Ukraine, and he believes him.

    1. Russia has 500 billion reasons to get their pipeline across the Ukraine. It’s 95% complete. They need higher energy prices. 14,000 lives lost in the Ukraine war so far.

  6. The GOP will blame Biden for this knowing it is a result of the lifted restrictions if Trump.

    1. @Richard Batchelder you guys are sooo butthurt because Biden is actually making america great again instead of just having it as a slogan on a hat. The man has done more in his first 3 months than trump did in his whole term. And I’m not even a joe Biden fan. But I also know how to face reality. He is def not perfect but a massive improvement over trump. No doubt.

  7. Why do we have CEO’s, and COO’s ?
    Apparently they are only figure heads who don’t make any decisions…
    They have only known this has been a problem for 15 years.

    1. Because they will make more money from higher prices while they shut everything down to fix the problem.

  8. When will the World realize that EVERY “Russian Criminal Group” works for Putin??? It’s basically the definition of Kleptocracy.

    1. @David Drake Doubt if that is possible since everything is networked and linked together. But even if not, spyware and hacking devices get imported to systems by thumbdrives and even in components of the computer systems from outside manufacturers. if the best cyber experts in the world cannot stop it, then what can? And keep in mind that new technology, software, devices, etc are coming out all the time and added to systems. Seems to me that the best option is sort of like “nuclear deterrence”. I have one and you have one, and if you use yours, so will I ….. and the world will be over. And magically nobody is willing to risk the nuclear option.

    2. @Corey Ham It is not as hard as it sounds. All one has to do it plan it out and it only cost around 20% more. I had to do it for a high school project.

    3. @David Drake OK, beyond my pay grade. Will let the highly paid tech gurus handle it. But if it was up to me, the mutually assured destruction seems to work and stop the threat.

    4. @Corey Ham Assured destruction only works when someone is playing to win and not playing not to lose.

    5. @David Drake Well mutual assured destruction with the nuclear option has deterred nuclear weapons use for 75 years how.

  9. This has happened before, and the best part is that it’s not because the companies have great security and the hackers were able to get around it. In almost every situation, the companies had little to no security because they didn’t want to invest in it. I work in technology, and I worked for a company that hired me to audit their processes, and they used default or extremely poor passwords across the board. I wonder who could have had the skill to hack then?

    1. This is so true, they are continuing, for years now, to be being penny-wise and pound-foolish. It would be amusing if it did not endanger the public.

    2. More likely poorly coded web sites, that allow hackers to operate the objects through php. OOPs was developed to prevent programmers from doing something stupid, to monolithic code, but is so baroque and convoluted, it often allows those who don’t have the proper permissions, to act like a sysadmin.

    1. @Richard Batchelder No, not really. If you refuse Putin his cut you end up, like Mikhail Khodorkovsky, in a penal colony.

  10. ‘Russia … if you are listening’ … Donald ‘Russia, Russia, Russia’ Trump calls on the Moscow Mob to threaten America to stay out of prison.

  11. F.B.I.: “It was the “Dark Side” group. Be on the lookout for Darth Vader.”

  12. Since what we possess is meant for conventional warfare, I say we send a few post cards via missile to Vlad to make sure he gets the message that this act of war will not go unanswered.
