    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Is This What The First World Cyber War Looks Like: Global Real Time Cyber Attack Map

Tyler Durden's picture


After a series of cyber failures involving first UAL, then this website, then the NYSE which is still halted, then the WSJ, some have suggested that this could be a concerted cyber attack (perhaps by retaliatory China unhappy its stocks are plunging) focusing on the US. So we decided to look at a real-time cyber attack map courtesy of Norsecorp which provides real time visibility into global cyber attacks.

What clearly stands out is that for some reason Chinese DDOS attacks/hackers seem to be focusing on St. Louis this morning.

Whether this is related to the series of suspicious cyber failures today, is so far unclear, although if there is a connection at least there is a way to keep track of the first global cyberwar in real-time.

that live map is insane...is every day like that or is today some big attack day?  My home interweb speed is very slow and glitchy today too.  Wondering if it could be related to whatever the hell is going on. 


Other than St. Louis being attacked non-stop from China, there's also what shows as an unknown military base off the west coast of Africa showing taking attacks from China and Kansas City, USA.  Wonder what that base is???

Is that the Federal Reserve St. Louis being attacked?  Does the Fed run their PPT equity investment operations out of St. Louis?  Might they be the target of the Chinese?

Note that the #2 source of attacks as shown on the same graphic, is the United States. #2 in the world for hacking, intrusion, denial of service, and malware. Something to be proud of, good job NSA.

This has the smell of a flase flag all over it. The Chinese are good at this stuff and know how to cover their traces. This looks like more "Conditioning" of the Sheeple in preparation for Chinese sanctions etc. I hope the neocons discuss matters with The Fed before they start because there is the small matter of the $1.5 Trillion in Treasuries held in China's reserves.....at least for now.

They expect that 1.5T to go way down in value..

That’s why they have hedged by amassing a mountain of gold.

BTW, they have at least 100,000 military and civilian engineer hackers working on this.

And how could anybody not vote this post a 5?

My daughter-in-law works in cyber security. She used to work for the Fed in Chicago up until last month. She told me that they would have hundreds of thousands of attack each day, all day every day.

I think it's just a matter of time. Sort of like evolution. At some point something is going to work when you try enough combinations.

The maroons trashed the oil price market to punish Russia and took out the entire US shale fracking industry as collateral damage.

The maroons trashed the Chinese stock exchange to punish China and took out the NYSE as collateral damage.

Over hill, over dale, we will hit the shorting trail
As the shorters go rolling along.
Up and down, in and out, HFT and right about,
And our shorters go rolling along.
For it's hi-hi-hee in the ole HFT,
Shout out the ticker loud and strong.
Till our final ride, It will always be our pride
To keep those shorters a rolling along.
(Keep them rolling - keep them rolling)*
Keep those shorters a rolling along.

No idea why.

Couldn't get into the Hedge again and again either.

darndest thing "unintended consequences."

Nothing really of interest in STL, i left that smoldering pile of dung.  All I know is that Edward Jones HQ is there, as is a big gov data center of unknown purpose.  Boeing has some assembly plants there, but most of the corporate stuff all got moved out long ago...
