So it was actually a hostage situation...and good IT policy....

"Colonial Pipeline was hit with a ransomware attack. Bloomberg reported the hackers began their attack on May 6 by stealing about 100 gigabytes of data in a double extortion scheme that holds the data hostage and threatens to leak it. The company shut some of its operations to prevent the malicious software from spreading."

Ozark Perigrines can fly 240 mph so they get there in
about 4 hours.

Mentioning this because nobody else does.
noit sure what that has to do with the topic at hand,,,
Use your brain if you remember how.
so they shut down the line when they lost control to avoid another leak??
It's impossible to fix a leak without some downtime, but it was never reported. Now all of a sudden Colonial is in the headlines over a so-called computer hack ? But less than 1 % know about the leak....I bet half the people in NC don't even know it happened.
well thankfully you are getting the word out now,,
I have a team of trained falcons with GPS and fly-cam's
monitoring the situation. They shot my drones down, so I have to fight dirty.
so you can post some of the videos,,,
After the class-action lawsuit settlement.
well at least they are cleaning up their mess and taking measures to avoid future ones
They have a long line of leaks. We will never know!!

No gas shortage. They just couldn't bill accurately.

do you have something other than a twitter post to back up this claim??
Holy shit you people are dense. Click on the name Kim Zetter in the tweet. You'll see that she's a journalist who specializes in cybersecurity.

The guy who retweeted her is the guy who invented GMail, Google calendar, Google Reader, and more.
I realize that paying your bills is not exactly a priority amongst Libs but the rest of us tend to like the system as it is. No company or individual OWES anyone, especially a tyrannical gobment, any damned thing.

There was a gas shortage in my neck of the southern woods. Stations here were running out completely.

God bless you always!!!

Correct. Not only were people who still had half a tank filling up, they were bringing along 30 gallons worth of cans to fill up.

And I seen one filling up a garbage bag. That's how I knew she was a Democrat. :auiqs.jpg:

So you're saying Joe is lying to us?
No. She is saying colonial pipeline cut pumping the pipeline itself, rather than take a chance of not getting paid by their customers. Pipeline pumps were fine and were not interrupted by the Russian hackers, but Colonial's measure and customer billing systems were screwed, so they decided to not take a chance on giving away inventory, screw the country and the northeast, shut down the pumps.
Does Joe know about this?
President Joseph Biden (God's choice) knows EVERYTHING.
come on man it's the AFT

Getting your news from randoms on Twitter?
No, reporters. Grow a brain, manual laborer.
Damn right I'm manual labor. Sitting behind a desk is for sissies. If the world collapsed I could survive because there isn't anything I can't do. You on the other hand cant translate data entry or similar shit to any life sustaining skills.
You can only dream of having the talent I possess

But the op and others only care that people began panic buying and hoarding which caused shortages. In their minds there should never be any shortages that inconvenience them
I wasn't inconvenienced in the slightest. I keep my vehicle filled up. And I listened to responsible sources that said that it would last a week. I can drive a full week on a half tank of gas.

Still, nothing aside from Twitter right? No official statements from any parties actually involved right? If not then it's still twitter gossip.
