Wired reports that while repairing one of the undersea cables between the UAE and Oman they discovered it was cut by an abandoned anchor.
If only it were that simple.
The real truth, only available here, is that Rob Graham of Errata Security deliberately dropped the anchor on the cable to disprove the various conspiracy theories making their way around the net.
Nice try Rob; we won’t fall for your talk of “cancer clusters” and “random coincidences”. We know better.
