Hopefully the corporate IT security practices are up to the challenge. Unfortunately, we see that many large companies are ignoring sound security practices.


Obviously not the case in all industries but when it comes to critical national infrastructure like what I work with it's not just corporate IT that has an interest in our systems but the state. I know our company works very closely with government.

Pipes can handle it like nothing. The same would happen if you run your common low pressure NG stove on a PB bottle without a regulator - those things that you turn to release the gas would pop out and cause the leak. It seems that only some stoves had this weak point though.

So is it a false flag or what? Who would be willing to do it in such a climate when a war and rumors of war are hanging in the air?

The company was installing equipment on the lines in the area. Probably not a coincidence.

Agreed I don’t think a hack caused the issues in the homes.

Whether hacked or not, of course, sounds hat it has t directly do with ailing infrastructure. Now imagine how prevalent these are in heavily populated areas.

What if the meters installed by the local gas utility had faulty pressure regulators that allowed them to pass too much pressure through the homes gas lines causing a leak?
