On a recent segment on the Tucker Carlson show, host Tucker Carlson connected a jump in Bitcoin to likely Ransomware attacks in numerous countries, including here in America, that may have devastated our aviation system. What Carlson and his team discovered should alert people to understand better the newest threats we all face from cyberattacks.
“Tucker Carlson speculates the White House was forced to buy Bitcoin to pay cyber attackers to release control of U.S. airspace,” cryptoslate.com reported. And that sounds like Ransomware.
Frontline talked about the newest perils with cybersecurity expert Don Beavers, who has extensive experience in complex algorithm and blockchain security development working with banking, aerospace, government and defense contractors. His company specializes in ransomware recovery and is located in Florida’s ‘Spacecoast.”
Beavers told us about the ransomware industry and their development of a disruptive new low-cost product solution targeted to consumers and businesses, that he calls a Digital Safety Deposit Box, that can protect and defend against such attacks and ensure that data is secure and protected.
Ransomware is malware that threatens to publish the victim’s personal data or permanently block access to it unless a ransom is paid off. While some simple ransomware may lock the system without damaging any files, more advanced malware uses a technique called cryptoviral extortion, according to media sources. Ransomware is a growing problem for governments, large businesses, small businesses and just the average regular person because Ransomware hackers are a growing industry that wants to get paid.
It makes sense that Carlson would believe such a thing happened to the Biden administration. Even on Friday, news reports show that a small business had been targeted with the technology and was forced to close down: Ransomware shuts hundreds of Yum Brands restaurants in UK
“Ransomware is destroying lives and causing chaos, ” Beavers, the CEO of Sollensys Corp, the creator of a ‘Digital Safety-Deposit Box’, told Frontline.
“The Government usually does a good job of taking care of big national issues like the powergrid, depending upon who is in charge, but they don’t have the manpower to protect every citizen. The average payout for an attack is $220.000. Hacking and Ransomware is a growing industry around the world,” Beavers said, pointing us to his research on the matter:
“People think Ransomware is primarily a business problem. However, a cyberattack never just stays at work. It follows you home on your smartphone or a thumb drive. Cybercriminals use automated systems to check for open computers, so they don’t really know when they enter a business computer or home computer—they’re just looking for openings. You could have Russians in your laptop right now and not know it.”
So if we can have Russians on our phones, how hard it is to believe that the Government is being attacked too? It could be something as devious as Ransomware that caused the aviation disaster for the Biden administration, and the payout for the Government would be huge enough to cause a financial alert.
Carlson thinks that is what happened recently to cause the aviation system to be crippled, which seems plausible- especially knowing the administration is not concerned about most security issues until a disaster happens.
According to the media- here is what grounded those planes:
“The U.S. aviation sector was struggling to return to normal this week after a nationwide ground stop imposed by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) over a computer issue that forced a 90-minute halt to all U.S. departing flights.
More than 10,000 flights have been delayed so far, and over 1,300 canceled, according to FlightAware, in the first national grounding of flights in about two decades. Many industry officials compared the grounding to what occurred after the terror attacks on Sept. 11, 2001,” Reuters reported, adding:
“FAA officials said a preliminary review traced the problem to a damaged database file, but added that there was no evidence of a cyberattack and that the investigation was continuing. The same file corrupted both the main system and its backup, said people familiar with the review, who asked not to be identified.”
However, Carlson said he was suspicious about the Government’s claims regarding the cause of that nationwide ground stop.
Carlson and his team noticed that there was a bump in Bitcoin at the time of the stoppage. Carlson said on his program he suspects what happened was a massive ransomware attack and then outlined his reasoning.
“The government system for pilots and the emergency system went down and caused the ground stop that hasn’t happened in 22 years since we had a terrorist attack. Last Thursday, we noticed the same thing happened in Canada and that was curious because their NoTam system went down as well. Then we remembered that on New Year’s Day, the same thing happened in the Philippines. Is it possible that someone is hacking into aviation systems and holding data for ransom? ” Carlson asked in a recent opening to his program.
Watch Carlson explain what he discovered:
Even ordinary people need to understand the booming technology and how to protect themselves.
Let’s face it, we are all living dangerously on the internet. Groups of unethical, immoral, criminally minded people will devise ways to make money and get power by taking advantage of how unprotected everyone’s data is, making even the most average person ripe for blackmail, cancel future, and other forms of cyber-stalking at the hands of hackers. And our laws and judicial system are nowhere near ready to handle the newest types of cybercrime, like Ransomware.
“We want to help people protect their online data, not just from Ransomware but from things like floods and household damage where their servers or computers are damaged. We can do that with Bitcoin, and that is what our business is all about. We call it a digital safety deposit box, and it is for even the most average person who just is worried about online photos and legal documents, to small business leaders and their client files, to major industries like the Government,” Beavers said about his use of Blockchain technology.

The US Government has been warning people about the issue of cyber crimes. After this latest development with the Airlines, people need to think about protecting themselves better and electing officials who understand the severity of the threats we all face and the technology that can get ahead of hackers.
According to CISA.Gov:
“Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to a wide range of risks stemming from both physical and cyber threats and hazards. Sophisticated cyber actors and nation-states exploit vulnerabilities to steal information and money and are developing capabilities to disrupt, destroy, or threaten the delivery of essential services. Cyberspace is particularly difficult to secure due to a number of factors: the ability of malicious actors to operate from anywhere in the world, the linkages between cyberspace and physical systems, and the difficulty of reducing vulnerabilities and consequences in complex cyber networks.”
Carlson’s investigation should worry us about who is in charge of the Government and creating safety systems around our most important data.
Do you think the Biden administration understands Blockchain as well as you do now?
