Have we discussed the Digital Warfare and Digital Theft?
Digital Theft is pretty darn common.
Sometime it's small potatoes many, many times.
Like taxes, it adds up.
Sometimes it's damn Big heists.
And; No one can track the money.
Digital Warfare has me a little more freaked out.
...I was 'thinking' (not real hard...still) The Stock Market is run by A.I.
Companies move closer to the exchange to save money at the Speed of Light.
well...They say the U.S. economy is Booming.
...There is not much of any reason for it to be so Bullish.
The Russians were in the U.S. Executive Election.
The Russians choose Cheetos 1st Secretary of State.
Maria Butina's e-mails show the communication back and forth.
That's not the Point.
It's the Russian intrusion into the U.S. Power Grid that made my ears perk up.
Then late May early June 20019 the U.S. put malware in the Russian Power Grid.
With All the many, many computers and companies communicating with the Stock Market...
well...I just, kind'a, feel uneasy about it. If the Russians lose their inside Cheeto. umm...

the U.S. recently ramped up its efforts and started launching more offensive activities that involve placing “potentially crippling malware [...] at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before.”
According to The New York Times, these hacking operations area meant as a warning to Russian President Vladimir Putin and appear to show how the White House is using new authorities granted last year to the U.S. Cyber Command. There is no evidence that the planted malware was actually used to cause any disruption.
It's a Fleeting Thought.
If they have been in our Power Grid for at least 3 years
Why can't they be in the Stock Market?
(sigh...) I'm sleepy.
