Alerts say major cyber attack aimed at gas pipeline industry
A major cyber attack is currently under way aimed squarely at computer networks belonging to US natural gas pipeline companies, according to alerts issued to the industry by the US Department of Homeland Security.
The ever ongoing debate about quality IT staff once again received a nudge, this time by an article of J.Oquendo. In his article he takes another brutally honest stab at the Industry by pointing out that the new Shady RAT attacks aren’t that new and would have been easily caught by capable personnel. I agree with that view very strongly and would also like to point out that Shady RAT is really no different than Night Dragon in that both attack waves used techniques that have been known for a decade or more. Oviously someone is asleep at the wheel, but who?
