For those who don’t know, there was a cyber attack today: http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2016/10/21/cyber-attack-takes-down-east-coast-netflix-spotify-twitter/92507806/
From this attack, this appears to be the third cyber attack, so apparently there were two earlier: http://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Major-Websites-Taken-Down-by-Internet-Attack-397905801.html
Interestingly, people were worried that this sort of thing might happen if the ICANN transfer happened. As it turned out, their fears turned out to be legit.
However, my fear is that this is actually going to lead to something far more sinister than just mere websites down. Recall how the FEC said they were going to oversee our elections to “protect them from cyber attacks”: http://www.politico.com/story/2016/08/election-cyber-security-georgia-227475
Do you think this is just coincidence? Personally, I don’t. I think it’s possibly them hoping for an excuse to take over our elections to “protect us” from hackers. In addition, perhaps they are hoping for the stories of the cyber attacks to drown out all the negative information about Hillary coming out. You know, Hillary, the one who leaves our information around for the bad guys to find and then someone manages to always get away with criminal negligence (if not worse).
Whatever it is, we’ll see, in time. Keep alert America. Our government cannot be trusted.
BREAKING: While the US says they are planning cyber attacks on Russia, whom they blame for the waves of cyber attacks, their actual target, so far, appears to be Julian Assange and Wikileaks: http://investmentwatchblog.com/sweeping-cyber-attack-by-government-on-wikileakstwitter-not-russia/
