Today’s Brutal DDoS Attack Is the Beginning of a Bleak Future

(click on above link to be re-directed)

To sum it up folks, today somebody broke the internet for a period of time over large parts of the United States. I have my suspicions as to WHO but I won’t go into that right now until I have more proof. As for now, a few things that we as preppers and martial citizens should understand:

  1. Expect this to Happen much more frequently and for longer periods of time until eventually somebody breaks the Internet for a month or more. And when I say “break” I mean totally non-functioning. Do I have to go into detail on the long term effects of this?
  2. DDoS Attacks combined with certain other tech-comm events (like the taking out of certain satellite comms) are often a prelude to War. If you look back at when Russia invaded Ukraine, DDoS attacks were widespread in order to control the flow of information.
  3. The targeting and use of the IoT or Internet of Things is very telling and certainly a harbinger of things to come as cyber-jedi Brian Krebs explains.

I am no cyber wizard but I do know when things eventaully go South (and I think we are close to that happening) it will most likely begin with something just like this.

In the above video, watch how fast this crook attaches the “Skimmer” device to the Credit Card machine without anyone being the wiser.

There is a multitude of good articles online to get you up to speed on this new form of credit card theft but here is one from a site I visit regularly for cyber-security updates; Krebs on Security.

As we continue to make advancements in this technological age, vulnerabilities in our cybersecurity have become glaringly obvious.

Over the past few years there have been numerous embarrassing and potentially dangerous hacks of high-profile private businesses and government agencies, exposing the identities and financial assets of millions of American citizens to fraud and theft.

Now the fast food chain Wendy’s can be added to the list of those who have been hacked, according to theU.K.’s Daily Mail.

They are reporting that Wendy’s is investigating “unusual activity” that has taken place on credit cards used at their restaurants recently.

The fast food chain was alerted to the activity by banking industry sources and cybersecurity experts, as reported by Krebs on Security.

Wendy’s is now working closely with those cybersecurity experts and law enforcement officials to determine exactly what happened and who is responsible.
