Biden's administration imposed an emergency due to cyberattack on the operator of a large pipeline Colonial Pipeline

137

The US administration announced a decision to declare another emergency. Recall that a few weeks ago - immediately after a telephone conversation with Vladimir Putin - Joe Biden announced an emergency "in connection with the actions of Russia." Then the White House said that the Russian government is pursuing a policy that "threatens the interests of the United States of America."


A new emergency (some US media outlets write about a state of emergency), declared by the Biden-Harris administration in connection with the cyberattack on the Colonial Pipeline.

It is the largest pipeline network in the United States. The operator is the company of the same name, which regulates the operation of pipeline systems with a total length of about 9 thousand km. The computer system serving the main pipeline has been hit by a ransomware virus.



Information resources of the United States write that the President of the United States introduced an emergency regime in connection with the danger that arose in terms of supplying fuel to several large American cities at once. There is a risk of disruption to airport operating schedules due to the likelihood of a shortage of aviation fuel.

The main problem concerns cities and airports on the east coast of the United States.

Meanwhile, the American media have traditionally "found the culprit." CNN TV channel came out with a report, which claims that the hacker attack on the computer networks that control the work of the Colonial Pipeline was carried out by persons allegedly related to Russia. At the same time, the channel refers to former officials of the American administration.

The conclusion about the "attitude of hackers towards Russia" in the United States was made, as stated, on the basis of a study of the program code, which supposedly prohibits attacks on computers using Russian and some other languages ​​of the CIS countries.

Biden's administration imposed an emergency due to cyberattack on the operator of a large pipeline Colonial Pipeline


The Colonial Pipeline pipeline is currently off. It pumped 2,5 million barrels of fuel per day. This is almost half of all hydrocarbon fuel pumping volumes in the eastern United States.

Now the US authorities, having introduced an emergency regime, are reorganizing the supply of motor fuel - for example, using transportation by sea and by road and rail. For obvious reasons, it will cost significantly more for the end consumer of the fuel.

The US press writes that the pipeline may be idle for several days. This could lead to a collapse in the power system of the largest US city - New York.

          It is good that there is Putin, Boshirov and Petrov and Russia: you can always blame all your blunders and troubles on the malicious actions of one of them. And it's even better that there are wonderful courts that recognize all this ... garbage as valid and will roll giant fines to the "culprits"! am

      And it seems to me that this is a SUBSTANCE! angry

      The attached screenshot of the program code raises questions. First, if the shown code is already decompiled (converted back from machine language), then it is not the original. Where did they get the virus source code? If there is a source, it is doubly suspicious.

      Secondly, if the virus is directed against the American power system, then where are the Russian-speaking operating systems from? Didn't they specially write a piece there, which doesn't affect anything at all, to divert your eyes? That is, to shout "stop the thief"!

      Thirdly, if this is really a ransomware virus written by Russian-speaking peppers, simply walking on the network, then this means that the American cybersecurity of critical infrastructure is generally a sieve! How did he get there? Is there no firewall or antivirus on the network, or do operators watch movies at work from infected flash drives? Then it is not Putin who should be threatened, but the IT specialists should be fired ...

      Well, on a note, not every Russian hacker-virus-maker works for the state. There are vanishingly few of them, mostly ransomware viruses are someone's shady business.

      It's funny already. And what do they have to say about the following:
      In Huntersville, gasoline has been leaking from the pipeline for almost a year, the leak was 38 thousand tons - twice as much as in Norilsk. And - not a sound! In August 2020, two teenagers rode an ATV in Oler Wildlife Sanctuary near the town of Huntersville, North Carolina, and, purely by chance, discovered that the smell of gasoline was unbearable. They reported this to the police, and it was discovered that an underground pipeline from Texas to New Jersey was leaking and gasoline was pouring into the soil from there. The Colonial Pipeline Company quickly reported that the problem was fixed, but it was not there - new ruptures went ... And more, and more ... At the beginning of May 2021, the pipeline continues to pour gasoline into the ground, which has already poured out - attention! - 38 thousand tons, which is more than twice the volume of the leak in Norilsk.

      The catastrophe has already been called the largest oil pollution in the last two decades. The pipeline is 40 years old, there are no leak monitoring mechanisms, the insulation is good old resin. Moreover, Colonial Pipelines have regularly broken down over the past years and decades and have caused enormous damage to the environment. The funny thing is that often these were not just leaks (sometimes in millions of liters), but EXPLOSIONS and fires. Well, actually, and what is unexpected - yes, gasoline vapors explode perfectly. And now - the largest disaster in the United States (we do not count the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico). Year can not be eliminated! The condition of the pipeline is a real shame and a nightmare. AND?! And where are the Greenpeace troopers at the Colonial Pipeline headquarters, where is Greta Thunberg, who was so worried about the fires in Australia, where, finally, is there just coverage of this topic in the news of the world media?
      No, no. Silence. There is no secret, information can be found, it is not hidden, it is simply not advertised. The world does not need to know about this. This is not Norilsk, after all!
      And this once again shows us how powerful the mechanisms of information dosage are. An event of ANY scale can be silenced, and vice versa - an event of any insignificance can be inflated into a sensation. https://news-ru.turbopages.org/news.ru/s/usa/samyj-krupnyj-nefteprovod-ssha-perekryli-iz-za-kiberataki/

      By analogy with the last strange caught smuggling of Soviet and Chinese weapons, it can be assumed that the hackers were caught, interrogated, did not understand anything and released in peace, claiming that the hackers had testified about their centuries-old evil actions.

            The equations of viscous fluid flow will be more complicated than ballistic ones. Modern flow sensors are made ultrasonic ... On signal processors ... These sensors send data via udp to the server, which records the flow rates in the database at different sections of the pipeline. How does the tabulator help here? Can you imagine the volume of a database? When restoring from a backup, as some suggest here, data with a space in time will be added to the database while the system was not working ...

                        laughing so yours is not rich .. write the same question instead of reading the article and looking for information on the network .. well and so .. The attack and infection itself has already been confirmed by FBI experts ... The method of attack coincided with what I described : "The operation of the pipeline is completely computerized. At the same time, the technical control system (CAD) is connected to the administrative one, which opens up potential opportunities for penetration through the Internet, most often via e-mail" ... This is the first .. Second: My personal IMHO, that the attack was paid by the management of the company itself .. because it was revealed that they had many breakthroughs in the pipeline and polluted the environment ... And they were threatened with a very, very strong fine .. and so they have an excuse .. "evil Russians" ..

A day later, the server was attacked by a similar ransomware. The people were angry that they had not found anything and began to cover up traces ... As the saying goes, "They wanted to catch Sher Khan, but Hathi was caught! Wise Hathi!"
    And the first time I met this signature, when the server was attacked from the territory of the Republic of Belarus, in the cyberspace of which it feels like home ... Thanks to the "dad" collective farm ...

          This is a program that encrypts all files on a computer that can be accessed ... Then it leaves a file where the wallet details are indicated, where bitcoins need to be transferred, after which the decryption key will be sent.

                  they are encrypted. It takes about 10 years to decipher them or a quantum computer

                    They themselves did it on purpose, so that they would raise the prices of gasoline, they would not understand how it is because of excise taxes that gasoline is more expensive at home than from a neighbor to whom you are selling.

    The ransomware's firewall is useless ... And many "administrators" do not install an antivirus on their servers ... In order not to slow down the work.
    Sincerely

    Good afternoon.
    I agree that many do not install antiviruses. But there are different network segments, in some places antiviruses still stand.
    Firewalls - it depends on which, and from which ransomware ... If the malicious code has already leaked through the protection, then yes, especially if from a flash drive. The issue is in blocking suspicious links, letters from unfamiliar addressees (they are simply not needed in service networks, for example, like many other content), web surfing of bored employees - here a well-configured firewall can help a lot.

      Good day!
      If the udp protocol is used (and it is used, since there are many sensors in the system of product pipelines and they are in different autonomous systems with different ip. By the way, this is why for such an Internet of things it is necessary to switch to ipv6), then it is enough to leak the code into the system, so that blobs are written to the database. No antivirus will scan the database, and to launch the head of the Trojan it is enough for someone with admin rights to open this blob as a value. It is not a question for an experienced programmer to write a Trojan head in the size of less than 64k. Therefore, if the application software for managing the product pipeline writes blobs to the database without scanning by the streaming antivirus, then ...
      Anyway, this is just my personal opinion ...
      Sincerely

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The FBI confirmed on Monday that the ransomware group responsible for the compromise of the Colonial Pipeline network is DarkSide, pinning the blame on an experienced group of cyber criminals who have already hacked into scores of companies in the US and Europe.

    The diaper has already announced the non-involvement of the Russian Federation, the EU has declared its unwillingness to escalate with the Russian Federation. It seems to me that the change of herbivorousness to sharp teeth bears fruit effectively)

    that is, everything described is nothing more than nonsense, written for a specific program, the question is why hemorrhoids are tied to the language, this is necessary only in one case - a large-scale virus that will choose what is needed, you describe the action in the presence of an insider and an attack on a specific object , which means it doesn't matter which default language is English, French or Martian

    Hemorrhoids with a binding to the language are, in particular, the features of the same DBMS. Because for different languages ​​there are different data presentation formats, for example. Suppose, at the stage of creating a schema in the same Oracle, a language setting is prescribed. Well, that is, this is not a language dependence on the process directly, but the functioning of the DBMS. What kind of software they actually have, I certainly do not know.
