The world is becoming a scarier place day-by-day as it progress towards the end time. We cannot be sure of exactly how events will unfold — just that they will happen as prophesied. This article shows just how susceptible we are to a precursory attack that could very well leave us vulnerable to an armed invasion by foreign forces.
There have been times over the last two months when Golan Ben-Oni has felt like a voice in the wilderness.
Scans for the two hacking tools used against IDT indicate that the company is not alone. In fact, tens of thousands of computer systems all over the world have been “backdoored” by the same N.S.A. weapons. Mr. Ben-Oni and other security researchers worry that many of those other infected computers are connected to transportation networks, hospitals, water treatment plants and other utilities.
An attack on those systems, they warn, could put lives at risk.
“The world is burning about WannaCry, but this is a nuclear bomb compared to WannaCry,” Mr. Ben-Oni said. “This is different. It’s a lot worse. It steals credentials. You can’t catch it, and it’s happening right under our noses.”
And, he added, “The world isn’t ready for this.”
“I look at this as a life-or-death situation,” he said. “Today it’s us, but tomorrow it might be someone else.”
