“We’re aware of the malware and will continue to monitor the situation. There are allegations that it has infected at least one energy company, possibly two, but it’s not clear if they were specific targets or infected by random chance,” researchers from the Tactical Analysis Center (TAC) of EnergySec, a non-profit that supports organizations within the energy sector in securing their critical technology infrastructures told SecurityWeek via email. “The destructive nature of this malware isn’t consistent with other targeted instances and, as of now, we have no indication that the situation warrants heightened measures. This may be a case of malware being highlighted given the [appropriate, in our opinion] attention on critical infrastructure security.”
