Cyber Security Breech
Posted by Victrola1 on Tuesday, November 21, 2017 1:38 PM

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Sacramento Regional Transit is the one being taken for a ride on this night, by a computer hacker.

That hacker forced RT to halt its operating systems that take credit card payments, and assigns buses and trains to their routes.

How much havoc could a hacker inflict if they got this deep into a class one freight railroad's data system?

Has anyone else read about the Uber data-base, drivers and customers, hack?

It made the evening national news yesterday.  I have never Uber'd.

         

Never too old to have a happy childhood!

How are those readers who have used Uber coping with this news?
