Someone from either American or Israeli DOD got into the PLC controllers on the twelve gigawatt hydroelectric Guri dam. They attacked the systems that regulated water flow through the valves on the dam that send the water to the turbines. This is precisely the type of attack Stuxnet is supposed to be made for. They opened the valves all the way. They (or whatever virus they planted, probably Stuxnet) then told the engineers, via the readouts, that the water flows and turbine speeds were normal. With an enormous amount of pressure from the dam, the turbines managed to push ahead of phase on the rest of Venezuela's grid, got into an enormous tug-of-war with power stations elsewhere (after viruses also turned the protection off) and blew everything up, tripping a nationwide blackout with long term severe damage.
We just got to see what Stuxnet could do to the world's third largest power plant. Several Venezuelans managed to tweet out that the turbines at Guri went over frequency, those tweets have now been expunged. Only willful sabotage could have done that.

It is virtually assured America did this, to a point where there is no plausible deniability especially after Pompeo's tweet, see the main report in the window below.

Most likely, trolls are going to say Venezuela's grid was crap. That's a lie, I looked into this, and it was in fact among the most modern grids in the world, RIPE for virus attacks, Guri is predominantly a 2010 dated facility after upgrades, that was initially put online in the late 80's (which by itself would not be old by power generating standards). There's nothing of significance in the U.S. that new and that updated. The stories about Venezuela having crap are bold faced lies fronted for propaganda.

For those not familiar with the Stuxnet virus:

Stuxnet is a malicious computer worm, first uncovered in 2010. Thought to have been in development since at least 2005, Stuxnet targets SCADA systems and is believed to be responsible for causing substantial damage to Iran's nuclear program. Although neither country has openly admitted responsibility, the worm is believed to be a jointly built American/Israeli cyberweapon.[1][2]

Stuxnet specifically targets programmable logic controllers (PLCs), which allow the automation of electromechanical processes such as those used to control machinery and industrial processes including centrifuges for separating nuclear material.

The virus that took control of a thousand machines and ordered them to self-destruct


The BBC article is in Spanish, but it's easy enough to translate. Here's a bit of it . . .

In January 2010, inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency visiting a nuclear plant in Natanz, Iran, noted with puzzlement that the centrifuges used to enrich uranium were failing. Interestingly, the Iranian technicians who replaced the machines also seemed amazed.

The phenomenon was repeated five months later in the country, but this time experts could detect the cause: a malicious computer virus.

The "worm" - now known as Stuxnet - took control of 1,000 machines involved in the production of nuclear materials and instructed them to self-destruct .

It was the first time that a cyber attack managed to damage the infrastructure of the "real world".

During the analysis of the worm, the analysts made a surprising discovery, says Gordon Corera, correspondent of security issues of the BBC. The highly advanced code of Stuxnet had been designed with a war mentality.

How did a computer worm physically damage 1,000 machines in a nuclear plant? We explain it to you in four steps:

1- Stuxnet penetrated the network

According to cybersecurity firm Symantec, Stuxnet probably arrived at Iran's Natanz nuclear program on an infected USB stick.

Someone would have had to physically insert the USB to a computer connected to the network. The worm thus penetrated the computer system of the plant.

2- The worm spread through computers

Once inside the computer system, Stuxnet looked for the software that controls the machines called centrifuges.

Centrifuges rotate at high speeds to separate components. At the Natanz plant, the centrifuges were separating the different types of uranium, to isolate the enriched uranium that is critical for both energy and nuclear weapons.

3- Stuxnet reprogrammed the centrifuges

The worm found the software that controls the centrifuges and inserted itself into it, taking control of the machines.

Stuxnet carried out two different attacks. First, it caused the centrifuges to spin dangerously fast, for about 15 minutes, before returning to normal speed. Then, about a month later, he decelerated the centrifuges for about 50 minutes. This was repeated on several occasions for several months . . . .

How can people in Venezuela communicate on Twatter if there is a total blackout?

I mean how can they charge their stupidphone batteries and send their Twats?

wtf
 Quoting: Concorde Warrior F-BVFA


Car batteries/inverters/chargers and/or extra battery banks. Also, many are going to places such as malls that still were running on generator power. Clearly this is failing now as the amount of people communicating has begun to drop off a cliff.

Presumably, internet still functioned a little bit - albeit extremely intermittent - because of generator power. That too seems to be starting to fail.

Venezuela buckles under massive power, communications outage

Venezuela's worst power and communications outage on Friday deepened a sense of isolation and decay, endangering hospital patients, forcing schools and businesses to close and cutting people off from their families, friends and the outside world. While electricity returned to some parts of Caracas nearly 24 hours after lights, phones and the internet stopped working, the blackout was another harsh blow to a country paralyzed by economic and political turmoil.

Venezuela Now 24 Hours In Darkness; Maduro Blames US "Electricity War"

WHO ?

The nation-wide blackout quickly turned into a blame-game over who's at fault, with many in the opposition blaming the Maduro government's mismanagement and notorious corruption, and with pro-regime voices blaming right-wing saboteurs taking orders from the United States.

Caracas has even gone so far to point the finger at Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio, who only yesterday as part of a Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing said that the US should promote “widespread unrest” in order to bring down the Maduro government. Though offering no specific proof Caracas officials accused the US and opposition activists of causing "pandemonium" for several days, culminating in the blackout.

President Nicolas Maduro gave brief public acknowledgement of the outage on Twitter, saying, “The electricity war declared and directed by the imperialist United States against our people will be overcome!” and added, “No one can defeat the people of Bolivar and Chavez. Maximum unity patriots!”

How many oil wells, aluminum smelters, computers, IT systems will not recover from today's outage? It will take, weeks to take stock of the economic damage.

Venezuela buckles under massive power, communications outage

The state-owned electricity operator blamed the outage on an act of “sabotage” at the Guri Dam, one of the world’s largest hydroelectric stations and the cornerstone of Venezuela’s electrical grid. Information Minister Jorge Rodriguez described it as a “cyber” attack intended to derail the whole system.

Venezuelan Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino Lopez echoed the official line, saying there had been a “new aggression” against the country’s power system that was aimed at destabilizing the country. The leadership of the security forces has remained loyal to Maduro despite appeals from the opposition to turn against him.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Maduro was to blame.

“Maduro’s policies bring nothing but darkness,” Pompeo wrote on social media. “No food. No medicine. Now, no power. Next, no Maduro.”
