Pay for a good IT dept. and keep Security Updates Current.
It’s time Biden hit Russia with some similar problem. Lets say confiscating Putin’s money in the American banking system. Ouuuuu – that would kick Old Orange Ass right in the nuts too.
I’ve read that the actual physical controls are fine. . .the company is just being “cautious” . . .hmmm
Oh look, its the Putin loving big lie Republicans good friends the Russians who are hacking our pipeline. Putin gets a cut of the ransom.
Gee…if we weren’t dependent on foreign energy…wow… think of the strides we could have been making towards sustainable clean cheap local energy sources right here at home….oh i know….cheap energy…why would any one want to finance cheap energy??? ummm…oh well…I’m sure someone will figure out a way to harvest billions of $$$ from "cheap energy.
Cons were all for extracting enough oil to be self-sufficient, until we did, and now we are a major exporter. Which is what they claimed to be against. Now they are working against renewable energy.
Makes electric vehicles look even better…
But But Russia is our trusted friend.
So which petroleum company does Darkside work for? Normally it’s a refinery fire that makes prices go up this time of the year.
Trump gave Putin permission (or Putin just took it and Trump did nothing) to let these guys flourish with no punishment
I bought gas Saturday…good for another 10-14 days. No sweat !
What idiot connects a Gasoline Pipeline to Google in the first place?
(Just echoing Trevor Noah’s question)
It’s not like the Pipeline is trying to keep up with Brangelina or the Kardashians.
A globally open internet is a good thing, most ways. Though it does mean that operational security needs to include keeping the “views and controllers” machines physically apart from the internet. Really. NOT CONNECTED. And that means that you have to wander around making the operators do what they were told and required to do, even if it does make them less productive.
I’ve heard that the proximate cause of this particular breach was “engineers working from home during the pandemic”. That’s likely true, but if those engineers had simply HAD RULES about connecting and (more important?) FOLLOWED THE RULES, then it wouldn’t have happened. Rule 1: There shall be no connection to the views and controllers dashboard that is not made from a physically present console or AT LEAST through a VPN. And 2: “You shall never use your personal computer to connect to work” And 3: "The company “connection” computer shall never be connected to the internet. View porn (or kitties, or twitter) on your OWN machine.
Be prepared for more junk like this. World War III may well be fought on the Internet.
Companies don’t want to pay for security because the expense lowers net profit and they don’t want to pay taxes so the government can increase cyber security (aka infrastructure) so here we are.
And quit blaming Biden…remember Grover Norquist wants a government so small it can be drowned in a bath tub
This same thing seems to have happened to Wilkinson’s creative juices – or is it just a vacation? Or another GoComics gaffe?
Ain’t the internet grand!
Did Signe really retire?
Go back to using pen ’n paper. No more “hacking”
Are u on vacation
C’mon, update already.
This is likely one of Ms Wilkinson’s last cartoons, since she announced her retirement for the end of 2020:
Where have you gone Signe???
Possibly the only visible sign of homosexuality a cartoonist couldpost. And You left it up for what? a month? Look, I have friends, I hear this stuff and I voted ALREADY.
Did Signe quit? This has been here way too long.
Where is Signe? Taking some time off?
Well she is still active on Twitter but not here.Are her comics on another platform?
I hope you’re doing OK, Signe.
Miss you Signe. Hope you are well.
And another political cartoonist bites the dust…
“Inquirer cartoonist Signe Wilkinson is retiring after 35 years of satirizing Philly”
Stupid ‘toon, makes no sense.
C’mon Signe, no more vacation!
I think we’re mixing oil and water metaphors here to no good purpose.
I see Go Comics editors are still very vigilant. Will this toon be gone by May 2022ou folk are overpaid.
If Signe has retired, why not drop her slot in the strips? Is this stuff ever updated?
jeez, do you guys get paid, maybe if this was in spanish you’d try something new. shame
This may be about to become current again.
Brandon stopped those ransomers dead in the water. He stopped the flow, thereby stopping them.
It looks like someone is finally cleaning out the comics (Bad Reporter etc) It’s about time this one goes, or is there a one year anniversary planned?
Jeez, over a year old, who’s the Go comics editor?
Over a year old, anyone awake?
You would all be surprised to see how many strips are dead in the water!!! The store seems to still be in business, but there’s nobody working there!!! GoComics has a lot of dead bodies to answer for!!!!
Apparently, she is retired. https://6abc.com/timely-cartoons-art-editorial/9442574/
Is Signe OK? Vacation? Or should I delete this stripped from my page?
