Cyberwar attacks on US News Media

LA Times. sources>https://www.thewrap.com/la-times-tribune-publishing-hit-by-cyberattack-disrupting-paper-delivery/

Chicago Tribune. sources>https://abc7chicago.com/cyberattack-disrupts-distribution-of-chicago-tribune-other-newspapers-across-us/4988313/

Both articles are way too long to summarize in only 4 paragraphs.
Hacking has morphed into cyber attacks which is morphing into obvious Cyberwar. The Apricot Hellbeast keeps on denying & his administration obfuscates. This is more then straws in the wind.

1. Toss in CenturyLink crash of voice and 911 service for good measure.


According to CenturyLink's status page, as of Friday night (Dec 28, 20:44 ET) "all consumer services impacted by this event, including voice and 911, have been restored. Some consumers may continue to experience limited latency, but those issues will clear in the next few hours."

Federal Communication Commission Chairman Ajit Pai was quick to issue a statement expressing his disappointment with CenturyLink shortly after the incident went public. "When an emergency strikes, it's critical that Americans are able to use 911 to reach those who can help," Pai wrote. "The CenturyLink service outage is therefore completely unacceptable, and its breadth and duration are particularly troubling."

As of writing, CenturyLink has still failed to fully restore service to all affected regions and customers (its internet users have also been impacted), but it's making "good progress," according to the company's official Twitter account.

2. America and other countries are being "cyberattacked" from all directions

Congress needs to make a law that incorporates the term "cyberwarfare" as an actual "act of war" and treat it as such.
