A sophisticated new cyber weapon, created by a Russian hacking group, has penetrated over 1,000 energy firms infecting their systems and giving hackers access to power plant control systems.
According to the Daily Mail, over 1,000 European and U.S. Energy companies have been infected with a computer virus, known as “Energetic Bear” that allows hackers to take control of power plants and cripple their systems with the click of a mouse.
The attack, which is believed to have affected 1,000 energy companies in over 80 countries, targeted energy grid operators, oil pipelines, power plants, and industry industrial equipment providers.
