    FBI names cyberattackers who shut down Colonial Pipeline as gas prices jump

    The FBI said Monday that the ransomware gang known as "Darkside" was the group responsible for the attack over the weekend that forced the shutdown of the Colonial Pipeline networks responsible for carrying gasoline from Texas to the Northeast.

    "The FBI confirms that the Darkside ransomware is responsible for the compromise of the Colonial Pipeline networks," the FBI said in a statement Monday. "We continue to work with the company and our government partners on the investigation."

    Department of Justice source told FOX Business that the investigation into the attack is ongoing due to the involvement of ransomware, labeling the sophistication of the tools involved "very high."

    Darkside announced its existence in August 2020, and claims it does not attack medical, educational or government targets – only large corporations – and that it donates a portion of what it takes to charity.


    The group will harvest data from a victim’s server, then encrypt it and request a ransom. The group then will upload the data to a leak website on the dark web, which will publish should it not receive the ransom, risking sensitive data loss for any victim organization.

    Darkside has advertised stolen documents from more than 80 companies across the U.S. and Europe on its website.

    Colonial Pipeline, in a statement Monday, said they are dedicating resources to "restoring pipeline operations quickly and safely."

    "Segments of our pipeline are being brought back online in a stepwise fashion, in compliance with relevant federal regulations and in close consultation with the Department of Energy, which is leading and coordinating the Federal Government’s response," the company said.

    Today I paid $3.34 a gallon for mid-grade 89 octane gasoline, compared to 6 days ago I paid $3.36 a gallon for premium 93 octane gas...I noticed the 93 octane was $3.67 a gallon earlier today when I stopped for fuel...I had over a half a tank of gas in my car but filled it up just in case there's shortages around here, by the end of the day today when I drove back into town there were lines of cars waiting to fuel up...Never saw that before in this small town, never paid this much for fuel before either...

    Unbelievable! It's only been 4 months since Biden took office and already the stock market is doing a nose dive, inflation is out of control, we have a crisis at our border, and foreign policy challenges are popping up in places like the Persian Gulf. I thought it would take at least a year for him to screw things up this bad. :ohmy8:

    The use of smoke and mirrors and teleprompters can only go so far to hide the reality of the situation...Now the smoke is rising and the mirrors are cracking and the government is still in denial...They would rather burn the country down than admit their failures...

    Tucker Carlson last night was talking about how foreign powers like China and Russia like to challenge a new president to test him. Sleepy Joe is going to turn to jello.

    Wouldn't matter who is in office. This is just the time and circumstances we live in.
    Government doesn't control these things. (Not debating any political stance here, just pointing that out.)
