US Government Warns Of ‘Ongoing’ Attacks On Energy, Nuclear Sectors

Critical industries including energy, nuclear and manufacturing have been targeted for cyber-espionage since earlier this year. US authorities have warned of ongoing online attacks on critical sectors such as government, energy and manufacturing that “in some cases” have successfully compromised targets’ networks.

The attacks are carried out by a group known as “Dragonfly” or “Energetic Bear” that has been in operation since at least 2011, and whose network penetration activities have recently become more aggressive, security firm Symantec said last month.
