    Nobody wants the public to know their company or entity's security can be defeated by a tech savvy 17 year old from mom's basement

    Do whatever you want to do fuel haulers, load em heavy till you break em.

    Department of Transportation will allow overweight tanker trucks on interstate highways in New Jersey and elsewhere to transport gasoline and other fuels affected by the temporary shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Wednesday.

    • The heavier trucks will be allowed only during the current emergency, which could last up to 120 days. The waiver affects nine other states besides New Jersey

    It's a pretty small city in the shadow of West Palm Beach. It was all over the local news. They had to go back to paper for a while. No automatic direct deposit payments for city utilities and 911 dispatchers had to send calls out over radios as those fancy laptops in the police cars were pretty much only good for playing solitaire.

    The estimated total cost to operations vastly exceeded the ransom paid to the hackers.
