Ah, the joy of facilities being built out in a 4k town as it is being developed for 60k more residents. Home to home for x rays was less than 30 minutes.

Meanwhile the temperature outside is falling. 39°F tonight?!

So this is ... wow. Puts all the calls about "your car's warranty is about to expire" in perspective:

In its own statement, the DarkSide group [which FBI says is responsible for the fuel pipeline cyberattack] hinted that an affiliate may have been behind the attack and that it never intended to cause such upheaval. Like some other ransomware groups, DarkSide offers to sell its malware to others in what is known as “ransomware-as-a-service,” according to the cybersecurity firm Cybereason.

In a message posted on the dark web, where DarkSide maintains a site, the group suggested one of its customers was behind the attack and promised to do a better job vetting them going forward.

“We are apolitical. We do not participate in geopolitics,” the message says. “Our goal is to make money and not creating problems for society. From today, we introduce moderation and check each company that our partners want to encrypt to avoid social consequences in the future.”
