I've dealt with dozens of lightning strikes here in lightning prone South Florida.
Direct lightning strikes usually take out a Enet port on the switch and whatever is connected to the other end PC/laptop enet port.
Lost my laptop PCI cardbus bus devices, 1Gb enet, Wifi, memory card reader and a switch port on the other end.
Usually extra grounding, and multiple layers of surge suppressors/chokes protects my electronics.
Note: The ethernet spec, includes isolation requirements in the several Kilo Volt range. Thus something like this won't do much damage. You'll need something more like a HV stun weapon to do some real damage.
He got lucky, that these criminals aren't a bit smarter and invested a bit more effort into their hack. I.E.Adding a BT stealth mode.
Where the hacked modules shut down BT transmission, until they received certain mac id's. Which would make them completely undetectable except by close visual inspection.
A somewhat reliable counter measure would be to,
1st, Separate the money loading into a different compartment that doesn't give access to the electronics.
2nd, Restrict down (people wise) and log all access to electronics section.
3rd, The moment the electronics bay is opened, the ATM is disabled. (Except for testing), until turned back on by head quarters.
4th, When the tech is done servicing the electronics sections he/she sends a time stamped photos of electronics+visible serial number+selfie (in front of locked up ATM still in diag mode) to HQ and then calls in to re-activate ATM
Superstorm Katrina even as a CAT-3 was more powerful than your typical CAT-5. Katrina had an Eye wall over 60 miles in diameter, thus breaking all storm surge records. Even for the area that was hit by Cat-5 Hurricane Camile (1969, 11-12 miles) or Andrew (1992, 8 miles).
2005 spawned two more Cat-5 Superstorms, Rita, and Wilma.. Wilma later took aim at South Florida, even as weakened Cat-3 it did a lot of damage.
My area got hit by both Katrina(as a Cat-1), and by CAT-3 Wilma's eastern and southern eye walls. I lost power for a total of 15 days, for others it was much longer.
My observation, If any of these Super-storms had retained Cat-5 status while coming ashore. The resulting outcomes would have been far worse.
From an analysis of the leaked database. Nearly all the 5.5 million female profiles (>99.8%) were faked. I.E. AM was a SCAMMING FRAUD and those hackers did the world a public service by exposing it.
Some enterprising DA needs to take the lead and put the exec's of AM on trial.
When hacker group Impact Team released the Ashley Madison data, they asserted that "thousands" of the women's profiles were fake. Later, this number got blown up in news stories that asserted "90-95%" of them were fake, though nobody put forth any evidence for such an enormous number. So I downloaded the data and analyzed it to find out how many actual women were using Ashley Madison, and who they were.
What I discovered was that the world of Ashley Madison was a far more dystopian place than anyone had realized. This isn't a debauched wonderland of men cheating on their wives. It isn't even a sadscape of 31 million men competing to attract those 5.5 million women in the database. Instead, it's like a science fictional future where every woman on Earth is dead, and some Dilbert-like engineer has replaced them with badly-designed robots.
Needless to say the backstory about this hack is that AM was a huge scam.
Accurate well documented research in preventive medicine and diet would go a long way towards reducing the cost of health care.
Nutrition and exercise, combinations of foods which work synergistic-ally with each other to inhibit cancer growth, combinations of natural supplements that are very effective reducing BP without side effects, foods that promote brain health, enhance kidney function, etc.
Reverse the on going degradation of our food supplies by the chemical companies. I.E. Ban most GMO's and reverse our farmers ever increasing usage of glyphosate's.
A lot of this information is available on the net, but the message has been drowned out, and/or negated by bad behavior. I
Tack on almost total avoidance by medical community who see these alternative treatment regimes as a threat to their livelihoods and you've got a recipe for a very expensive healthcare system.
The more doctors, specialists, expensive medical hardware, and victims(er.. patients) you have in the system, the more it's going to cost. It's that simple,. reducing the need for medical attention upfront, is single best way to control this runaway cost spiral.
