Alaskan Army Bases Under Cyber Attack 9-8-2013

(Before It's News)

BREAKING: As of 2400 hours on 9/7/2013 all three of the Army bases in Alaska – Fort Richardson, Fort Greely, and Fort Wainwright – are offline after reports of a large explosion at Fort Wainwright prompted The Truth Is Viral Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Bob Powell to investigate.

Efforts to connect to the base website to get the phone number for Fort Wainwright public information officers failed as the “server could not be found.” Subsequent attempts to contact other Army bases in Alaska also met with failure.

Because Fort Richardson shares a facility with the Air Force at Joint Base Elmendorf- Richardson and their site is still up, hostilities at the base just outside of Anchorage can be ruled out with a fair degree of certainty. What is just as certain however, is that the United States Army is under a cyber-attack as all three of their websites in Alaska are down.

Attacking the electronic infrastructure of the United States military would be the first step taken before an actual invasion. TTiV is not saying that “The Russians are coming.” Yet. However, attacking Army websites in Alaska would be a logical first step before hostilities begin in order to degrade the response of the United States to any attack, and any attack from Russia would include an invasion of Alaska.

    This is not an attack. It is defence against the true terrorist of the world.

    Attack or defense? Whoever is responsible if this is a real event is severely dyslexic cause the idiots playing terrorist under the table and pious homeland juggernauts by day are on the other side of the continent in DC. Real swift there Einstein.

    I don’t think it’s Russia. It sounds like the US false government is making sure no information leaks out about what they are doing over the internet.

    The site is down, just checked but…it seems a majority of comments on the youtube video are all from people who know people near the area and they claim nothing has happened. Still curious that the site is down…hmmmm….

    From US Army Alaska’s Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/USArmyAlaska) 8 September 2013 4:50 PM PDT (3:50 PM Alaska Daylight Time):

    “Arctic Warriors,

    Intermittent website outages are an ongoing challenge for all of our bases in Alaska. The length of these outages varies and affects the USARAK, Fort Wainwright and Fort Greely websites. We hope to have the current issue fixed as soon as possible. Any rumors of cyber attacks are completely unfounded. If you need access to any information or resources that can normally be found on our websites, please contact us through our Facebook page directly.”

    No mention of problems or outages on their sites. Although the ALASKAN DISPATCH reported there was a failure due to hardware problems during a webserver upgrade.
