Scary stuff: The Untold Story of NotPetya, the Most Devastating Cyberattack in History

https://www.wired.com/story/notpetya-cyberattack-ukraine-russia-code-crashed-the-world

Crippled ports. Paralyzed corporations. Frozen government agencies. How a single piece of code crashed the world.

It was a perfect sunny summer afternoon in Copenhagen when the world’s largest shipping conglomerate began to lose its mind.

The headquarters of A.P. Møller-Maersk sits beside the breezy, cobblestoned esplanade of Copenhagen’s harbor. A ship’s mast carrying the Danish flag is planted by the building’s northeastern corner, and six stories of blue-tinted windows look out over the water, facing a dock where the Danish royal family parks its yacht. In the building’s basement, employees can browse a corporate gift shop, stocked with Maersk-branded bags and ties, and even a rare Lego model of the company’s gargantuan Triple-E container ship, a vessel roughly as large as the Empire State Building laid on its side, capable of carrying another Empire State Building–sized load of cargo stacked on top of it.

That gift shop also houses a technology help center, a single desk manned by IT troubleshooters next to the shop’s cashier. And on the afternoon of June 27, 2017, confused Maersk staffers began to gather at that help desk in twos and threes, almost all of them carrying laptops. On the machines’ screens were messages in red and black lettering. Some read “repairing file system on C:” with a stark warning not to turn off the computer. Others, more surreally, read “oops, your important files are encrypted” and demanded a payment of $300 worth of bitcoin to decrypt them.

I wonder what's going on in the Kremlin at this time.

It's probably as dark as the White House.

The Dems need to focus A LOT of attention on protecting our voting system--and making it THE NEWS.

Maybe something is going on behind the scenes, but from what I can tell NOTHING has been done to protect the integrity of our voting system since Russia helped Trump, McConnell, Ryan (and a host of others) into power.

As long as the GOPutin machine controls the house, senate and president, no charges will EVER be brought against traitors. They'll keep changing laws to suit their selfish needs.

Happy Birthday, Robert Mueller!!!
