Second Florida City Pays Hackers. How Smart Cities Leave Themselves Open for Cyberattacks.

SNLS | July 2, 2019

By B.N. Frank

A city employee clicking on a malicious link is being blamed for this recent cyber attack in Lake City, Florida.  Insurance will cover most of the ransom and taxpayers will cover the rest.  Argh.

Hackers targeting local and state governments is on the rise.  Regardless, many local and state governments are choosing to set themselves up for this by installing wireless utility Smart Meters (see 1, 2), 5G, the Internet of Things (IoT) and by promoting and incorporating Smart Cities.

For many years already, security experts have been warning that everything operated wirelessly has the potential to be hacked – especially 5G (see 1, 2).  So it’s not a matter of if communities and states who incorporate these programs will be hacked.  It’s only a matter of when.  How not smart or inexpensive or environmentally UNfriendly is that?

Additionally – everything that operates wirelessly emits Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) aka “Electrosmog” which is biologically and environmentally harmful.  Again – not smart one iota.
