WELL, THIS IS ENCOURAGING: Electricity Grid in U.S. Penetrated by Spies. “Cyberspies have penetrated the U.S. electrical grid and left behind software programs that could be used to disrupt the system, according to current and former national-security officials. The spies came from China, Russia and other countries, these officials said, and were believed to be on a mission to navigate the U.S. electrical system and its controls. The intruders haven’t sought to damage the power grid or other key infrastructure, but officials warned they could try during a crisis or war.” Hmm. Maybe I should rethink buying that generator . . . .
