Cyberattack danger is imminent, says DOE

cyberattack dangerNEWS UPDATE on cyberattack danger. The Department of Energy warned that the US electrical grid “faces imminent danger” from cyberattacks. It could happen if people open a phishing email containing a malware-rigged attachment. The cyberattack danger could cause a widespread power outage that could cripple critical defense infrastructure and paralyze much of the economy. Stores, gas stations and airports could shut down. Millions of citizens could find themselves without food, light or heat in the winter cold. Or gas to travel to warmer climes.

We all should prepare for such a cyberattack danger or for any disaster that may strike. Stockpile food, medications, lanterns, gas, and warm clothes. Consider investing in a kerosene heater or wood stove. Store water and install a water filter system. Be ready to defend yourselves with pepper spray and family-defense items. Record emergency contact numbers, maps and essential information on flash drives and hard copies kept in waterproof containers.
