From Russia with Love? Your Home Firewall may be spying on you.

There was a concern when electric meters were modernized to allow remote reading that the meters were really being modified by insidious dark forces to  spy on homeowners. There was even a joke that went something like:

My wife asked me why I was carrying my gun around the house. I told her “Decepticons”. She laughed. I laughed. The toaster laughed. I shot the toaster. Good times.

There is a lot of truth in humor: sometimes more than we want to admit.

The router brands that almost everyone uses to connect to their Internet utility could now be part of a widespread hacked Internet of Things (IoT) network known as VPNFilter. For now it is thought to be targeting Ukraine but there are over half a million hijacked routers so far. The hack installs itself and cannot be removed by rebooting the router. This is a VERY GOOD REASON to change your old LinkSys router to use the (free) OpenWrt Project instead of the factory supplied LinkSys OS and deny access to control the router from outside your LAN. At the least, you can read up on the OpenWRT project web site to understand more about how software is installed in your router, and how to restore your router to its factory original state.

People install OpenWrt because they believe it works better than the stock firmware from their vendor. They find it is more stable, offers more features, is more secure and has better support.

This just in email from DarkReading.com

More than 500K home/SOHO routers and storage devices worldwide commandeered in potential nation-state attack weapon

So far, the infected devices that make up the backbone of VPNFilter include Linksys, MikroTik, NETGEAR, and TP-Link home routers and QNAP network-attached storage (NAS) devices.

Cisco stopped short of naming Russian state-sponsored hackers as the attackers behind VPNFilter, but also didn’t rule it out, especially with the BlackEnergy connection and Ukraine-specific attack network. “The code overlap we saw was an exact copy, including even an error,” Williams says.

Ignorance, even well meaning ignorance, is not bliss

Picture of commemoration of attack on 02.03.2011

By Genet, Commemoration of Frankfurt Airport shooting terrorist attack on March 6, 2011.

There is much publishing of the atrocities committed by Muslims, and their carnal, wicked behavior.

I believe there are also people who consider themselves to be Muslim because that is all they have known, who earnestly do want to obey the One and only person who is the One God of Abraham. They do not understand that Islam was created not by the God of Abraham but by one who desires the total destruction of all that the One God of Abraham created.

God seeks honest hearts and reveals his Truth to those who honestly will listen. Those Muslims who seek and meet the One God of Abraham will understand he is not Allah (el-Ah, the violent moon god of Ur from whom Abraham departed) but that the One God of Abraham made a human body and lived inside it to save, not destroy, everything he has created. And that presence of God in the human body was known as Jeshua the Messiah, that is Jesus the Christ.

Once they understand the One God of Abraham is the divine Spirit that lived in the body we know as Jesus Christ, and follow him, then they will finally find peace. In the world we have tribulations, but we can take courage because He has overcome the world.

Maranatha.

Know Jesus, know peace. No Jesus, no peace.

The existing paradigm for creating and distributing electrical power is obsolete and inefficient. It is time to change to a distributed network on each residential and commercial building with solar panels generating electricity independently of electric utilities. Readmore..
