DHS: No Evidence Russian Hackers Penetrated US Electric Grid
« on: January 01, 2017, 08:34:26 AM »
Computer code connected to Russian cyberattacks by U.S. intelligence agencies has been found in a laptop computer at a Vermont electric utility, a development that emerged a day after the Obama administration hit Russia with sanctions for hacking during this year’s U.S. election.

But a Department of Homeland Security official Sunday told Politico that there was no evidence that hackers actually penetrated the system.

"While our analysis continues, we currently have no information that indicates that the power grid was penetrated in this cyber incident,” J. Todd Breasseale, DHS's assistant secretary for public affairs, told Politico in a statement.

WaPo Publishes Fake News Story of Electric Grid Hack by Russia

 BY RICK MORAN DECEMBER 31, 2016

What makes this story about the Washington Post creating hysteria by claiming the Russians hacked a Vermont electric company so incredible is that the paper broke a cardinal rule of journalism in publishing it.

They didn't get confirmation from the electric company that the story was true.

Stupid leftist media! Did they publish the lies to support Obama's ousted of Russian diplomats?

When is Obama gonna start calling these people out for pushing fake news???  Oh... that's right... it only counts when it doesn't support his agenda.

Use all that ammo they purchased. Enough to kill everyone three times over.

That's what I'm afraid of.  They have no intention of giving up ANY power.

I tend to agree with the folks who say they'll unleash a bio weapon, and of course, blame it on Russia.
