Airports In New York State Hacked By Russians?
The busy holiday travel season is almost here and many are making plans to meet with family and friends and are booking their flights now. There are some that are saying you will save a bunch of money if you make reservations to fly on Thanksgiving. It's a gamble. Especially when you consider the weather as a factor this time of year.
But as we are just starting to get used to things getting back to "normal" after the COVID-19 pandemic, there are some new anxieties that travelers are facing after the recent reports of hacking at airports across the country.
It's being called a coordinated attack – and Killnet, a pro-Russia cyber group is claiming responsibility. Killnet specializes in DDoS – or Distributed Denial of Service – attacks, which overwhelm a website with “junk” Internet traffic causing it to crash.
Halloween is not even here yet and stores and customers are already planning ahead for Christmas and the Holiday rush! Home Goods in Orchard Park, NY is full Christmas already! Just like the retailers, airlines and airports are reminding us that the busy travel season will be here soon and now is the time to prepare. As far as weather being a factor, many are saying that the Northeast will see snow earlier this year than previous seasons.
