How convenient right?

BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) — A state electric utility confirmed on Friday it had found on one of its laptops a malware code the U.S. government says is used by Russian hackers.

The Burlington Electric Department said U.S. utilities were alerted by the Department of Homeland Security on Thursday of a malware code used in Grizzly Steppe, the name Homeland Security has applied to a Russian campaign linked to recent hacks.

Burlington Electric, which is municipally owned, said it detected the malware in a laptop not connected to its grid systems. It said it took “immediate action to isolate the laptop and alerted federal officials.”

“Our team is working with federal officials to trace this malware and prevent any other attempts to infiltrate utility systems,” it said in an emailed statement.

This has been the build up from the beginning and is the next domino to fall.  "Cyber attack" on the grid.  Maybe add a couple blown out power stations to some small towns they don't give two shyts about.  Lights go out in some major U.S. cities for 2 days or so causing mass hysteria, looting, rioting, etc.  The recent Mall tests were a good indication of things to come.  Just a bit of predictive programming.

Then the power will go back on, just in time for Obo to take the podium and announce that we are going to war with Russia.  He'll stay in power. 

That's been my strongest gut feeling when it came down to Donald and Shitllary.  Hopefully I'm drop dead wrong.

Maybe their employees should stop surfing for Russian Porn with their company computers? You'll likely pick up some nasty CIA malware when you do...

Perfect timing on this.  Got to find anything they can too pin on Russia.  

Here we go. This is how the left is gonna try to stay in power. Find or create a situation and try to sway the public, then, BAM. Take over
