Our society lives in an era where hacking attacks are almost a part of daily life. It seems even the world’s biggest governments don’t shy away from exploring options in this regard. Power grids in both the US and Russia are being targeted once again. A very worrisome incident, albeit the two attacks are quite different from one another.
It would appear a renowned hacker collective is in the process of targeting different power grids throughout the United States. The report by Dragos claims “Xenotime” has been in the process of triggering operational outages on a global scale. This is facilitated by a new strain of malware which is capable of targeting power grid facility’s safety processes.
