State of Emergency Declared in 17 States and D.C. After Pipeline Cyberattack

As we reported earlier, “the most significant and successful attack on energy infrastructure we know of in the United States” occurred Friday when a ransomware cyberattack was launched on the Colonial Pipeline. The pipeline stretches from New Jersey to Texas and provides 45% of the gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel used on the East Coast. While the attack was on the pipeline’s business systems, the pipeline itself was shut down as a precaution while a third party investigates the attack.

Peeped CNN’s home website a few hours earlier to see this story buried under a bunch of other stories including Trump’s thoughts on the Kentucky Derby winning horse using drugs…because, yunno priorities. BTW, look for gas prices to go even further upwards under Joe Biden due to this news.
