    Hackers managed to get control of flood gates, former official says..

    The previously undisclosed cyberattack was first reported by The Wall Street Journal on Monday.

    This sort of attack worries me to death. Can you imagine the destruction?
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.
