What IF Garmin Supposed Ransomware Attack Is A DISGUISED Hack From China (Or Google)?

I was at least 4-hours AHEAD of the pack. As soon as I heard that Garmin had been down for a ‘few’ hours I suspected a HACK. It was much, much later that others cottoned onto this & the rumors of the ransomware surfaced.

I am, however, still NOT convinced.

Being the professional cynic that I am (& a pioneering hacker from the early the 1970s) I have doubts.

What if the supposed ransomware is BUT a ruse to cover up a MASSIVE hack. Yes, the files & data has been encrypted per ransomware, BUT what if they sucked up all the data beforehand.

I am convinced, rightly or wrongly, that we are headed for a major cyber war with China. I think China is trying out their technology & tactics all over the place, Australia in particular. I have a theory that this could be China trying it out on a medium size US company — though I think many of the Garmin servers are in Europe.

Then again, it might be Google! Remember they are in the process of buying up FitBit. Plus, they are HUNGRY for fitness/health data. By hacking Garmin they get access to millions of active users!

Think about it.

P.S., I am a Garmin shareholder, & yes, I sold some of my GRMN shares today, on the news. SMILE.
