DHS Fears a Modified Stuxnet Could Attack U.S. Infrastructure
DHS Fears a Modified Stuxnet Could Attack U.S. Infrastructure

One year after the discovery of a sophisticated worm that was used to attack centrifuges in Iran’s nuclear program, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security told Congress it fears the same attack could now be used against critical infrastructures in the U.S.

DHS “is concerned that attackers could use the increasingly public information about the code to develop variants targeted at broader installations of programmable equipment in control systems. Copies of the Stuxnet code, in various different iterations, have been publicly available for some time now,” Bobbie Stempfley, acting assistant secretary for the DHS Office of Cybersecurity and Communications, told the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations (.pdf) on Tuesday.

The testimony comes in the wake of accusations that the U.S. was itself responsible, along with Israel, for developing and unleashing Stuxnet into the wild, thereby making it possible for the hackers, nation-state attackers and terrorists that DHS fears, to now repurpose the malware for use against critical infrastructure systems in the U.S.

Stuxnet, considered to be the first cyberweapon discovered in the wild, was found on a computer in Iran in June 2010 and was believed to have been launched in June 2009.


Although Stuxnet was designed to attack a specific system, researchers like Ralph Langner have pointed out that the malware could be easily tweaked to attack other industrial control systems around the world. According to Langner, an attacker would need “zero insider information and zero programming skills at the controller level in order to perform a Stuxnet-inspired attack” against other control systems.

AHHHH! here is the false flag, the reason why Soros bailed, the reason the markets stumbled.

They give up and plan on attacking the grid. If so, communities must prepare to:

a) disconnect the control panels from the net
b) get the grid back up
c) keep the grid back up
d) fly fuel into all the nuclear reactors that shut down. They only have 7 days fuel on site. Even worse, many use shitbox generators which may fail.

I say BRING IT. We can do this. PURGE that corruption out of OUR system.

Typical British elite, blame the USA and Israel so they sheep look at them.

This is a BRITISH ELITE plan/virus. They built the reactors in Japan, they refuse to allow Japan help, they removed iodine from American's diets by forcing the FDA to add Boride into all dairy products in the USA, they modified the EPA...etc.

Try to kill Americans with radiation at the expense of the Japanese. If anything, get the world pissed at America and Israel.

The American power gird is old and fragile it wouldn't take much to bring it down. We should all be preparing for extended periods without power. Unless the U.S. government sinks billion into upgrades and repair of the power infrastructure or forces the power companies to do so (unlikely), massive outages are in Americas future.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH:
Alan Isaacman
The People Vs Larry Flynt
"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, you've heard a lot here today and I won't try to go back over it all. But you have to go back in that room and make some decisions and there is one thing I want to make very clear to you before you do. I'm not trying to convince you that you should like what Larry Flynt does. I don't like what he does. But what I do like is... that I live in a country... where you and I can make that decision for ourselves. I like that I live in a country where I can pick up Hustler magazine... read it if I want... or throw it in the trash, if that's where I think it belongs. Or better yet I can express my opinion by not buying it. I like that right. I care about it. And you should care about it, too... because we live in a free country. We say that a lot, but sometimes we forget what that means, so listen again. We live in a free country. That is a powerful idea. That's a magnificent way to live. But there is a price for that freedom, which is that sometimes... we have to tolerate things that we don't necessarily like. So go back in that room... where you are free to think whatever you want to think... about Larry Flynt and Hustler magazine. But then ask yourselves if you want to make that decision for the rest of us... because the freedom that everyone in this room enjoys... is, in a very real way, in your hands. If we start throwing up walls against what some of us think is obscene... we may wake up one morning and realize... that walls have been thrown upin places we never expected... and we can't see anythingor... do anything. And that's not freedom. That is not freedom. So, be careful. Thank you."

 Quoting: 2342



Read the article and it states the top cybersecurity czar resigned immediately after a testimony by DHS.

Why would the Top Brass resign mysteriously?

“To date, ICS-CERT has briefed dozens of government and industry organizations and released multiple advisories and updates to the industrial control systems community describing steps for detecting an infection and mitigating the threat,” DHS claimed in its testimony.

The testimony came just one day after the surprise news that one of the nation’s top cybersecurity czars resigned abruptly and mysteriously from his job. Randy Vickers had been director of U.S.-CERT (Computer Emergency Readiness Team), a division of DHS that is responsible, in part, for coordinating the defense of federal networks and working with the private sector to mitigate cyberattacks against the nation’s critical infrastructure. Vickers resigned July 22, effectively immediately, according to an e-mail that Stempfley reportedly sent to DHS staff. Vickers’ Linked-in profile had already been changed to indicate his departed status from US-CERT by the time the news went public. DHS did not give any reason for Vickers’ abrupt departure.

 Quoting: dollop of tennessee 1300042


Neither was Iran's nuclear facility that was infected. The virus infected many networks and personal computers and personal storage devices around the globe, but was designed to stay dormant until it recognized the system it was designed to infect. It was speculated that one of the engineers at the nuclear facility would have connected an infected laptop to the network at the nuclear facility, and that's how the system is penetrated. Same situation would apply here for our infrastructure to be effected.... All it would take is one laptop, thumb driver, portable hard-drive to be infected and then connected to an internal computer at one of these networks, for the virus to spread. Do you honestly believe that our country has implemented, 100%, the necessary safeguards to prevent such an event from happening? I don't. We can't even prevent Pentagon computers from being breached by Chinese hackers...
