Damn. Too late for a cybersecurity review for Colonial now I suppose.

I understand they're planning a review sometime.  It's supposed to be in the pipeline.  ::)

According to New York Times reporter Nicole Perlroth :

Interesting forensic finding on Colonial Pipeline: They were STILL using a vulnerable version of Microsoft Exchange (the same systems exploited by Chinese hackers that was revealed in March), among other notable lapses. Per Coalition.

Why the hell is this sort of thing not on a separate or disconnected network. Have they not seen Battlestar Galactica?

Shit is crazy.  Did a job in upstate SC on Tuesday and the locusts from NC were all over the place sucking up the gas.  When it came time to leave and go back home, needed to legit fill my tank and wound up having to travel deep into Greenville to find a place with fuel.

Really glad I filled up on Monday.  Most the the stations near me are showing dry (on Gasbuddy).  Hope things look better next week.
