This dangerous Russian-linked malware could shut down power grids



Cybersecurity researchers have uncovered a new dangerous malware designed to disrupt systems such as energy grids or other critical infrastructure. 

Experts from Mandiant dubbed the malware CosmicEnergy, and believe it’s similar to previously-discovered Sandworm. Sandworm is a notorious Russian state-sponsored malware that was designed to target Ukrainian power grids back in 2016.
