Coincidence? Barack & Michelle Obama Just Produced Their First Fiction Film On Netflix About A Cyber Attack That Cripple The U.S. – See What Happened A Few Moments Ago

If you didn’t watch Leave the World Behind on Netflix this weekend, you’re in the minority. The new apocalyptic movie from Sam Esmail is currently trending No. 1 on the streaming service, after its release on Friday. And there are two names in the Leave the World Behind credits that surprised some viewers: Barack and Michelle Obama.

Based on the 2020 novel of the same name by Rumaan Alam, Leave the World Behind stars Julia Roberts and Ethan Hawke as a married couple on vacation, who find themselves trapped on Long Island with their rental home’s owner (Mahershala Ali), while society is on the brink of collapse. The film was released by Netflix, and produced by the Obama’s Higher Ground Productions, which first launched in 2018. The company has a multi-year deal with Netflix, and has produced over a dozen films for the streamer like the Oscar-winning American Factory, and, most recently, the Bayard Rustin biopic, Rustin.

The movie is about a cyber attack on our country.

Maybe it’s just a coincidence but a few moments ago the Daily Mail reported that Chinese hackers are positioning themselves inside critical US infrastructure by targeting careless office workers in a bid to cause ‘societal chaos’ from within should war break out.

Beijing’s military have burrowed into more than 20 major suppliers in the last year alone including a water utility in Hawaii, a major West Coast port and at least one oil and gas pipeline, analysts have revealed.

They have bypassed elaborate cyber security systems by intercepting passwords and log-ins unguarded by junior employees, leaving China ‘sitting on a stockpile of strategic’ vulnerabilities.

Codenamed Volt Typhoon, the project has coincided with growing tension over Taiwan and could unplug US efforts to protect its interests in the South China Sea.

‘It is very clear that Chinese attempts to compromise critical infrastructure are in part to pre-position themselves to be able to disrupt or destroy that critical infrastructure in the event of a conflict,’ said Brandon Wales of the DHS’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).

‘Either to prevent the United States from being able to project power into Asia or to cause societal chaos inside the United States — to affect our decision-making around a crisis.

‘That is a significant change from Chinese cyber activity from seven to 10 years ago that was focused primarily on political and economic espionage.’

The hackers often cover their traces by using unsuspicious devices such as home or office routers in a bid to steal employee credentials.
