Russian hackers implanting malicious software in the U.S. power grid

The Hill 28th July 2018 , Intelligence officials and security analysts say Russian hackers are
devoting much more effort toward implanting malicious software in the U.S.
power grid than attempting to breach electoral systems, according to a new
report.

Several intelligence officials told The New York Times that Russian
efforts had been more focused on attacking and infiltrating U.S.
infrastructure systems, while interference in electoral systems remained
lower than the level witnessed in 2016.

The report comes days after the
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) reported that the scope of Russian
intrusions was far greater than previously realized, and that Russian
hackers gained access to the control rooms of power plants across the
country.
