There is definitely a gas shortage around here.
“President Biden said on Monday that the United States would “disrupt and prosecute” a criminal gang of hackers called DarkSide, which the F.B.I. formally blamed for a huge ransomware attack that has disrupted the flow of nearly half of the gasoline and jet fuel supplies to the East Coast.
The F.B.I., clearly concerned that the ransomware effort could spread, issued an emergency alert to electric utilities, gas suppliers and other pipeline operators to be on the lookout for code like the kind that locked up Colonial Pipelines, a private firm that controls the major pipeline carrying gasoline, diesel and jet fuel from the Texas Gulf Coast to New York Harbor.
The pipeline remained offline for a fourth day on Monday as a pre-emptive measure to keep the malware that infected the company’s computer networks from spreading to the control systems that run the pipeline. …”
“Russia on Tuesday denied any involvement in the cyberattack that crippled an American pipeline responsible for almost half of the East Coast’s fuel supply and lamented that the U.S. doesn’t cooperate more with Moscow on countering devastating threats.
“Russia has nothing to do with these hacker attacks, and had nothing to do with the previous hacker attacks,” Dmitry Peskov, a spokesman for Russian President Vladimir Putin, told reporters Tuesday morning. “We categorically do not accept any accusations against us.” …”
This article is from March 11:
The “journalists” are saying it is because Russia hacked a pipeline.
The FBI has “confirmed” that Russian hackers are behind the gas shortage.
Russia is saying that the FBI and the “journalists” are lying again.
BTW, we’ve been hearing for weeks now about an impending gas shortage this summer. There has also been reports of gas shortages around the country for at least a month now. There was a lot of talk about this before the pipeline was allegedly hit by Russian hackers.
