Watch hackers break into the US power grid

Posted By on May 19, 2016

In Watch hackers break into the US power grid we see a test, run by a power company in the Midwest, where they hired a group of white hat hackers known as RedTeam Security to test its defenses.

Tech Insider followed them around for 3 days, as they attempted to break into buildings and hack into its network, with the goal of gaining full access. And it was all much easier than you might think. Based on these experiences, it would seem that power companies need to step up their game in the fight against cyber attackers or it could be catastrophic for the U.S.

Incredible video that show meticulous analysis of all kinds of weakness. The biggest weakness? Human connection and compassion,

At this point I’d like to point you towards the ‘Hacker’s Manifesto’, also known as ‘The Conscience of a Hacker’, on Phrack from 1986 by The Mentor.

    Started a few years ago. I thought we were happy. We were your usual suburban professional couple. Financially secure, healthy, good sex life, two kids (14f and 9m at the time). I thought we had a healthy social life.

    We were going through one of your typical married couple rough patches. Both of us were working long hours, not spending enough time together, we were going through some developmental problems with my son and tensions in the house were running a little high.

    I noticed that she was spending a lot more time on her phone texting with her “girlfriends”. I didn’t think much of it. I started making a much more concerted effort to get out of work when I could, help around the house and be more emotionally available, but over the course of a few weeks the gulf just kept getting wider.

    The next day after I took the day off to knock out some projects that I thought would make her happy, and left her some sweet notes reminding her how much I appreciated her she was once again in the corner of the living room “texting her girlfriends”.

    I decided to embark on finding out what was going on and i was reffered to by my old friend to a white hat who literally made me end the whole union but made me move on with my life!

    I obtained the results from the hacker and all of my flaws, insecurities and secrets I entrusted to my partner were now fodder for her and JBC(her affair partner). Not only that, but while there wasn’t outright sexting there was a sexual

    I took off the next day and spent some time soul searching, drinking and trying to figure out what to do. The wife came home and wanted to know what was wrong and I just coped out and told her I had a bad day. A couple minutes later I was watching the iPad as the train wreck kept unfolding.

    So began a couple solid weeks of receiving screenshots and results, drinking and detaching myself from the relationship. I knew there was no going back from this.

    I consulted my and started moving on. If my life story seems similar to yours I advice you to take actions and contact her for a positive life changing experience

    Be warned most of these so called hackers are impostors, I have been ripped off twice already, thankfully my friend gave me a reliable contact, they work with discretion and deliver, they do all sort of hacking, (unrestricted and unnoticeable access to your partner/spouse phone and PC). i will prefer to let their services speak for itself. you can contact them through their mail account (blackhatinfiltrator01@gmail.com. they will also help you to hack and change university grades. that easy
