The Wall Street Journal is claiming the US power grid has been inflitrated by Russian and Chinese spies multiple times and software has been left that could be activated at any time which could disrupt our entire power supply.

The US uncovered this intrusions, states the Wall Street Journal, on multiple occasions and “the intrusions were not just limited to the electrical power grid, but affected systems like water and sewage. The motivation for the breaches is not well understood, and while the electronic trail appears to lead to China and Russia, it is not clear whether these actions were state-sponsored. ”

The intrusions appeared pervasive across the country and did not appear to target any particular part of the country.
