the Siemens part is crazy:

https://www.wired.com/story/crash-override-malware
Read through this yesterday. Definitely crazy stuff. The fact that it only seemed to be a "dry run" makes you have to believe that something major will happen in the near future. Whoever wrote it will refine it even more before hitting something hard.

At some point some Mr. Robot style stuff is going to happen where our bank account info and digital life records will be erased or corrupted, and it's going to be pandemonium.

ya man, the future is looking like a mess.

I love how people are downplaying that article, "oh the worm is so noticeable, it's signatures are full of red flags". That's not how this shit works. Once inside internal networks, it's hard af to detect this stuff. Internal network security is a mess. And like you said, it could be a dry run. People aren't going to deploy their best tech in a dry run.

that article is nuts..

this line got me:

Quote
The FBI was called in to investigate to determine whether Lamb and Grayson—still unidentified in media reports—had committed a crime. The FBI determined they had not but told Lamb he should “probably just delete” the files he’d collected from the site, which he says he did.

Wtf? Man times have really changed.. HEH!
