Cyberattacks can lead to drastic consequences no matter who or what is targeted – businesses (see 1, 2), community governments, hospitals (see 1, 2), medical devices, personal devices (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6), security systems, utility grids (see 1, 2, 3), and/or utility “Smart” Meters. Hackers can also set devices on fire!

Recently it’s been reported that Google’s Waze App is also vulnerable to hackers who collect information on users and nearby drivers as well.

Waze Can Allow Hackers to Identify and Track Users

The company already patched an API flaw that allowed a security researcher to use the app to find the real identity of drivers using it.

A security researcher has discovered a vulnerability in Google’s Waze app that can allow hackers to identify people using the popular navigation app and track them by their location.

Security DevOps engineer Peter Gasper discovered an API flaw in the navigation software that allowed him to track the specific movements of nearby drivers in real time and even identify exactly who they are, he revealed in a blog post on his research website, “malgregator.”

Over the past several weeks, I have written numerous articles on the state of the food supply chain and the coming food shortages. From the time I began writing those articles to now, pending food shortage claims have gone from “dangerous conspiracy theories” to mainstream news topics.

While the government began the alleged pandemic stating that there were no disruptions to the supply chain (which was patently absurd), it now openly admits there “may” be shortages of certain foods and supplies over the coming months.

The concept of food shortages has gone from theoretical to real

As governments continue to use COVID as an excuse to enable their ulterior motives, the financial stability of many will become shakier. That will cause consumer’s habits to change. Shoppers will be less likely to buy luxury foods. As a result of the change in these habits, the supply itself will drastically change. And in addition to all that, producers are going to have difficulty processing and packaging foods. 

The food shortages and are now being openly discussed, even in mainstream circles. For instance, Carolyn Dimitri, associate professor of nutrition and food studies at New York University, says: 

“Because agriculture is so labor dependent, if you end up having a huge outbreak during the planting season or the harvest season (and it’s kind of hard to predict when that will happen) it will disrupt the ability of people to work either on the farm or in the processing facilities, and there will continually be problems.”
