U.S. officials are reportedly privately worried Russia stole blueprints for U.S. blackout restoration
it's reportedly possible the hackers accessed Black Start, the detailed technical blueprints for how the U.S. would restore power if there was a major blackout. If that was indeed the case, Russia would theoretically have a list of systems it could target to keep power from turning back on.

There are concerns that Russia's SVR, which the U.S. intelligence agency and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo  are confident  was behind the breach, was able to get its hands on delicate, albeit unclassified information from victims like the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

For example, it's reportedly possible the hackers accessed Black Start, the detailed technical blueprints for how the U.S. would restore power if there was a major blackout. If that was indeed the case, Russia would theoretically have a list of systems it could target to keep power from turning back on.

Some of the revelations include the fact that the hack appears to have been much broader in scope than originally thought and that the hackers "managed their intrusion from servers inside" the U.S. by "exploiting legal prohibitions on the National Security Agency."

Stole is an interesting way to put it.  Bought is probably more accurate.  Wonder what else Trump sold to Putin.

I don't believe that the US fully knows how extensive this breach has been. 

In the coming weeks/months we are going to find out how much more we don't know about this breach.

I'm sure they did.

But are you really naive enough to believe that they only accessed unclassified information? (Do you really believe everything the government releases...?)
