New "Industroyer" Malware Targets Power Grids

June 12, 2017

Security researchers from ESET and Dragos have discovered a brand new malware strain that was specifically built to target equipment installed in power grids, and which has already been deployed in live attacks in Ukraine.

These attacks took place on December 17, 2016, and have shut down electrical power distribution to a large area of Kiev, Ukraine's capital.

The incident must not be confused with another cyber-attack that targeted Ukraine in December 2015, which also shut down power supply to large areas of western Ukraine. Those incidents were caused by another ICS malware named BlackEnergy.
