Wow, these — i.e., ‘Garmin‘ & ‘Canon‘ — are multi-Billion dollar companies.

This has got totally out of hand.

I think we are heading towards a BIG MELTDOWN ahead of the November 3, 2020, U.S. Presidential Election.

I think these ‘hacker groups’ are a FRONT for STATE-SPONSORED attacks!

This is not good. This is NOT going to end well for US!

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.

What Am I Thinking: Are The Cyber Attacks In Australia, A Dress Rehearsal By China, For The U.S. Pre-Election?

by Anura Guruge


Click to ENLARGE & study. From ‘Google News’. Google as I have shown …


Not sure how many of you have been following this, i.e., MASSIVE cyber attacks in Australia that the Australian GOVERNMENT believes is from China, STATE-SPONSORED at that.

OK?

Scary?

I thought last week’s Twitter hack was related. It still could prove to be so. They are clever enough to provide some convenient red herrings to throw us off course.

So, what I am THINKING.

Is this just a DRESS REHEARSAL?

Real target is the U.S., pre-election.

Biden, just yesterday, said that he has had security briefings that intimate that China & Russia plan to interfere with the election. See below.

This worries I.

I think the Chinese have had it up to their eye-teeth with the US.

They have the resources. This could get UGLY with all of us as helpless pawns.

Have YOU thought about this?

Should you?
