The Russians Are Coming… Again!
First the Washington Post reported that Russian hackers had penetrated the U.S. electric grid. Then NBC got hold of the story and created a top-notch video which you just have to see. It’s really quite dramatic!!! (at the bottom of this post).
Then the Washington Post retracts the story, now saying that “Russian operation hacked a Vermont utility, showing risk to U.S. electrical grid security, officials say” Note the change from penetration to “showing risk”
Then we keep reading and we find out all kinds of interesting things… until we are left to reasonably conclude that it was all FAKE.
If you have a mind to, read just some of what was found and judge for yourself (reprinted here as PDF files).
The Washington Post, NBC, and others… “fake fake fake fake.”
Here is NBC’s video version of the Washington Post story. The drama… the drama.
