Report: US Power Plants Are Under Cyber Attack From Russia

Things were supposed to be better with Russia under the Obama administration — after all, Hillary even botched gave them a reset button! Unfortunately, Vladimir Putin seems to have not received the message that we’re, like, totes BFFs now, because a new report has found that US power plants are under cyber attack from Russia.

This is scary stuff. Not only has the attack been going on for 18 months, it appears to be focused on targets in the United States and Europe. According to the Financial Times, the malware “allows its operators to monitor energy consumption in real time, or to cripple physical systems such as wind turbines, gas pipelines and power plants at will.” This is exactly the type of attack that the government’s been (very vocally) worried about lately.

This is what happens when there is a power vacuum in the world — if we are not the world leaders, then someone else is going to rush in to fill that vacuum. Obama has spent his presidency doing everything he can to weaken the United States as much as possible, and Russia is happily stepping up to take our place. What will the world look like when Vladimir Putin is the most powerful man in the world? Do we want to know?
