  1. Is it possible IT employees are attacking their own companies for ransom? Why wouldn't a company's IT plan include several full mirrors/redundant realtime systems for critical software and data to quickly switch over and bring a company back online?

  2. The American military along with C I A owns the internet. It was created for them to begin with. There's nothing on the internet they can't stop or trace. The reports of hacking have been used to justify raising prices on things. Simplify the recent past news reports. Blah blah blah was hacked so prices will be going up for __________. Sorry folks but you're gonna have to pay up. The internet as we know has only been around since circa 1995. Gas, oil, and many other things were produced LONG before the mass internet ever existed. It doesn't require a computer to run gas through a pipeline. One thing you CAN bank on is that corporations and elite wealthy will never have enough money. They will always find a way to squeeze as much as possible out of the average citizens. With trillions inflating the economy, they are using every excuse possible to vacuum as much money up as they can. They don't want any wealth in the hands of average citizens. The production and supply of goods in America can't keep up with so many people having any extra money to spend. God forbid any mention of a food shortage happens and every grocery store in America will be empty.

  3. Want to stop ransom ware?
    Get rid of crypto. Crypto = illegal activity.

    You do all realize ransomware didn't become popular until the FBI was forced to undo blocking crypto payments online right???back in 2015/2016 ish.
    Want to stop spam?
    Charge for email. .01 cents for each email.

    Want to stop piracy?
    That's a tough one…. I got nothing there.

  4. Why is this stuff online?
    This was the plot to the movie "live free or die hard " did we not watch this movie? This is what happens when millennials run things… unnecessarily putting everything online because it's cool. Its not social media dummies. Closed circuit only for infrastructure..

  5. Everybody knows they only beefed up the hacking sense the smart people in our government thought it was a good idea to flaunt that they got most of their money back which I’m pretty sure that’s gonna piss some of those type of people off. Simple mathematics, cause and affect! Yep
