US Utility Is a Victim of Hackers

Hackers attacked the computer network of a US public utility, compromising its industrial-control-system network, according to a new report from the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS). The utility—which the DHS’s Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team didn’t identify—fended off the brute-force attack and its operations were not affected, according to the report, which also stated that the utility was likely attacked previously. The disclosure of such an attack is rare. (Reuters)(CNN)
