First the simulated cyber attack on banks by IMF, now this.

I know some believe it's all not going to happen. But in my opinion this means we're getting closer to the very thing that they're simulating (planning?).
And it seems Russia might have to play the bad guy this time.



"European Union governments will launch later this week a large-scale simulation of cyberattacks against multiple member states.

Participants will be confronted with attacks on their supply chains and some spillover socio-economic effects in other member states, before having to coordinate public communications and a diplomatic response, according to people familiar with the matter and documents seen by Bloomberg.
....
The EU simulation comes amid concerns that Russia could couple any aggressive act toward Ukraine with cyberattacks directed at the West.

One of the EU documents cites the recent hack against the software company SolarWinds Corp., which according to U.S. and U.K. intelligence assessments was carried out by Russian intelligence and affected companies on both sides of the Atlantic.

...it will be modeled on incidents that have taken place or could occur in the near future. "

"On supply chains" , if this was a genuine supply chain attack nations should recover very quickly, it will slow down supply chains, they would have to resort to older methods of communication.

My guess is a supply chain attack is less suspicious than a cyber financial attack, the supply chain hack will be used to justify another bank bailout, we know the banks are tethering on the edge of another massive downturn.

They can also sell the digital ID this way also, if we all used digital ID for the internet then hacks can be stopped will be the narrative.

With media trust destroyed because of covid folks are growing suspicious every time the global media go into lockstep, the pattern is becoming obvious, even pop culture normie types are seeing it, the hype narratives are not working, it’s like a great movie franchise with a hero/savior narrative , it rarely makes it past 3 movies, trump was a doomsday narrative in movie 1, then we had climate in movie 2 now we have corona in movie 3.

On a basic human level people have been acting along in these movies and they know it, this is what a lack of sincere meaning in life does to normies , just like a real movie you stimulate the emotions in the movie, I think people deep down knew the trump doomsday was overstated, they know the climate doomsday is overstated and now it’s clear as day so is covid, it’s also clear the ruling class billionaires are not hero’s but hey they got richer with each one of these movies.

What’s the bet Amazon.com stays functioning just fine during the supply chain hack?

I think non-anonymous internet can be a real problem. Do you know if there's any way around that, like a VPN for example ?

I think it still quite easy to find out who’s behind a VPN, some German researcher was able to find what meds a member of parliament was taking and much more, you just search the raw code and user names eventually show up with regular internet usage, VPN’s will still show what Facebook page you were logged into for example, you can find larpers this way also, I can’t find the research paper but it’s out there, it’s real easy to do.

VPNs are good for region blocked content. Security or privacy they do not provide. In fact you are more likely to get your data sold. Properly setup tor network is the only way to get privacy, but your ISP will see that you have connected to tor, and could theoretically alert the authorities, as most tor use is for illegal activities.

So is there any way around the non-anonymous internet ?

More evidence for the "Russia will be the bad guy"-narrative:

Cyberattack on Ukrainian websites. No one knows who it was. But of course Russia is the first suspect.

"...Kiev authorities and The Washington Post reporting Friday that hackers have launched a massive cyber-attack on Ukrainian government websites. "

"Anyone logging into the sites were given a warning with the words "expect the worst"

"..."close to 70" federal and local Ukrainian agencies saw their websites breached in recent weeks.Despite an ongoing investigation to uncover the identity of the hackers, naturally WaPo and national security pundits have quickly pointed the finger at Russia ."

Makes you wonder if Putin was aboard all along, only to create a scenario where cyber blackouts or even wars can be shrouded in plausible deniability.

Nobody outside the circle can know. Everything is a lie.

Seems likely, as he is on board with the long term goal "digital currency".

"The CryptoRuble is a digital currency currently in development, commissioned by Russian President Vladimir Putin. It will not be a cryptocurrency in the way that Bitcoin is, as it will be issued by the government with no mining involved."

"Russia’s President Vladimir Putin said in October of 2017 that his country would issue CryptoRuble, a state-sponsored cryptocurrency."

(What Is CryptoRuble?)

The new post truth narrative may prevail here, blame Russia, then Iran and throw North Korea and China in for more confusion, just like the lab leak for covid nothing sticks, nobody will know, people will break off into a multitude of identity blame camps, divided with no coherency, this allows a carte Blanche approach from western nations, as usual the solution will be more control for those at the top, language will be used that makes it seem like it’s not about control but security for the public.
Clown show prevails.

No expert on this at all, but Apple recently introduced a very cool feature called Private Relay which hides your IP but I was told it acts more like the Tor browser than VPN. Maybe some more competent users in this area can chime in and tell us if it's actually a good service for online privacy.

Cyber Polygon is guaranteed to happen this year very soon - they will not just pull the plug on banks - but they will pull the plug on the entire internet and because of the emergency - a worldwide ID system will be instilled for people to just use the internet

One of the biggest russian financial institutions (sberbank) was a founding member of the WEF center for cybersecurity (2018).
(Sberbank becomes founding partner of World Economic Forum Centre for Cybersecurity)

Sberbank and WEF join online event "for the participants to exercise their skills in repelling a massive supply chain attack on a business-critical system in real time, followed by a full-scale investigation of the incident. A total of 200 organisations from 48 countries took part in the technical training."
(Cyber Polygon)
(Cyber Polygon 2021 to focus on secure development of digital ecosystems — SberBank)

Klaus Schwab:

"The implication is clear: a lack of cybersecurity has become a clear and immediate danger to our society worldwide,” Schwab said today.

“We have seen in the past few months, for example, ransomware attacks targeting hospitals, critical infrastructure, school systems, the power grid, and many other essential services.


Ahem... WTF ???

"Schwab praised the speed of digital innovation that occurred during the COVID crisis, highlighting a digital law proposed by the European Union that goes hand-in-hand with the WEF’s great reset agenda — digital identity schemes — that keep a record of all your online activity and can provide or restrict citizen access to essential goods and services.

“There is, for example,” said Schwab, “the EU-proposed Digital Law that aims to provide a safe way for citizens to access and link public and private services online.
