    They should spend the ransom money on an assassin to hunt down the hackers and make this problem go away, permanently , as well as send a message to future hackers.

    They shouldn’t have to pay the ransom. I work for an msp. When one of our customers gets hit by ransom ware, we just restore the affected machine. All you need is a good recent backup. Reports are saying this didn’t even hit the control systems, just the billing systems.

    That was exactly my point. They shouldnít be allowed to practice 17th, 18th, 19th! Because thatís when Iím fishing!

    Filled up on my way into work this morning at Sam's. Noticed BJ's had gas yesterday too. So did a few other stations.

    No outages here, I recall in 2019 some crazy woman trying to fill a garbage bag with gas - what could possibly go wrong there

    You can't bounce a meatball. They have more money, and they love the smell of clean air. It's very nice out there, if you're rich. It's a nice place to be from, but for some, they are leaving I have no idea why.

    And Colonial Pipeline employees need to be retrained to ignore and not click on those emails from nice gentlemen in "Nigeria" who have a rich uncle that left a lot of money, etc. etc. Criminals need to be severely punished and employees have to not be stupid. From what I saw on the news this morning, gas stations that were slammed with cars line up yesterday morning are basically devoid of customers today. With news that the pipeline is back to functioning again, human behavior has returned to something more logical

    Pretty standard now days, the damage to the reputation of company that has been "hacked" usually leads to them going out of business so they lie and then lie some more.
    Lots of places claim to be compliant now days with IT regs but most simply are not. The regs are not enforced and rely on self reporting for the most part. The boss signs on the dotted line that its taken care of and everyone goes on there way until something like this happens. If people really had a good idea how insecure our critical cyber infrastructure is they would panic and buy lots of TP ;).

    Look for more hacking since they paid out.

    The vast majority of companies and institutions hit with ransomware pay and very few ever admit that they were hacked or that they paid so there's not a lot of transparency here.

    Seeing as this impacts a massive number of american lives - (think of firs responder vehicles, school busses, etc.), I would imagine that Uncle Sam told the pipeline company to pay up, period.

    We don't have to like it, but as mentioned before, this is quietly a semi-regular phenomenon. Hopefully there will be more oversight/investment in isolating and safeguarding the pipeline's IT.
