Muni Water Suppliers, Food Suppliers, Vulnerable to Hackers

As keepers of exotic animals, sometimes a great many of them, not having access to clean water can really be a problem because you can't easily pick up and relocate hundreds of reptiles. You should have a plan for an alternate source.

This particular hack occurred in Florida.

Every computer system on the planet does NOT have to be connected to the world via the internet. At best, perhaps a local network, but the internet can be a pretty wild and dangerous place for control machines of this nature.

Fortunately my water supply is from a well on my own property. But still, a lot of damage can be caused by malicious operators as well as planned targets for hostile nations.

Bean counters hate spending money on IT security because they don't see the need for it until it's too late.

You would think these people would learn from the voting machines that weren't connected to the internet...

Largest Beef/Pork/Poultry Producer Hit with Ransomware

Glad I put a half beef and half hog in the freezer not too long ago. Meat prices were going higher anyway due to increased food/fuel costs, not being able to process critters for even a week will mean bare shelves and high prices shortly.

If you don't have a generator, get one. I would not be surprised to see an attempt on the power grid in July or August as that would cause the most damage in terms of human deaths and lost/spoiled perishable foods.

I would guess it is more likely some other entity other than Russia involved, trying to make it LOOK like Russia is behind it all.

But in any event, gee, isn't it really cool having EVERYTHING controlled by computers?

Yeah, um. Well. Sure. OK. Hmm.

The generator suggestion is a good one. We got one a few years ago to be able to deal with extreme weather, but a blizzard or tornado (that's what took us off line for five days and motivated the generator purchase) is nothing compared to a multi-state blackout. Keep lots of fuel on hand, too, since gas pumps run on electricity too.

We have a Honda 3000iS that runs the whole reptile room, 2 bigger fish tanks, the fridge and 2 chest freezers. Highly recommended.

Both Russia and China have put a lot of resources into state-grown/trained hackers.

Neither country likes us very much.
