"Is Russia Planning a Sneak Attack?"

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has something new to worry about--Russian hackers.

That's right, folks. It seems the Russians are the most likely suspects behind a destructive "Trojan horse" malware program recently discovered in critical US software and is poised to cause an economic catastrophe," says DHS. 

Forget economics. This bug means the Russians now have the power to bring down our:

  • electrical power grid
  • nuclear power plants
  • water distribution / filtration systems
  • oil / gas pipelines
Bring down any one of these and the US is in a heap of trouble.

National Security sources told ABC News "there is evidence that the malware was inserted by hackers believed to be sponsored by the Russian government, and is a very serious threat."

Ya think?

DHS sources told ABC News "they think this is no random attack and they fear that the Russians have torn a page from the old, Cold War playbook, and have placed the malware in key US systems as a threat      and / or as a deterrent to a US cyber-attack on Russian systems--mutually-assured destruction."  Link to ABC News: Trojan Horse Bug

Wait a minute. This Cold War strategy of "mutually-assured destruction "only works if it's mutual.
Better start praying we've got a "Trojan horse" of our own in this race. If we don't, the only "assured destruction" will be our own.

"And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don't panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won't follow immediately."  Matthew 24:6 NLT

A wise man once said: "The Cold War isn't thawing; it is burning with a deadly heat. Communism isn't sleeping; it is always plotting, scheming, working, fighting."  -- US President Richard M. Nixon
