The big story this week (and probably the next few days) was that hackers got into the oil pipeline that serves most of the US East Coast, causing shortages and hikes of gas prices. The hackers demanded ransom, which was paid by Colonial to keep the crisis minimized in terms of it’s length.
I have no moral to this story, either political or otherwise. I’m not going to say it’s something that never happens again – it probably will in some other form.
Let’s just be fortunate that it’s over with. Had the crisis continued on, it would have been the proverbial snowfall going downhill – eventually resembling something out of Hollywood.
