On a recent visit to a household products manufacturing plant in California we were awestruck at the miles of machinery humming away on lonely factory floors. Only 75 employees in total were needed to keep this enormous 300,000 square foot facility running 24/7.
The U.S government warned industrial firms this week about a hacking campaign targeting the nuclear and energy sectors, the latest event to highlight the power industry's vulnerability to cyber attacks.
A host of companies across industries have confirmed attacks on June 27th by a brutal wave of ransomware. Victims of these attacks including global law firm DLA Piper, U.S. pharmaceutical giant Merck, and the Danish shipping company Maersk.
Although targets originally appeared in Ukraine—shutting down power plants, banking services and supermarkets—this latest cyberattack has quickly spanned critical economic sectors around the globe. This cyberattack was first seen by Webroot's threat research team at roughly 10:00 a.m. UTC 6/27/2017.
Webroot has found many companies are still failing to adequately secure their IT systems from the EternalBlue (Petya/WannaCry) vulnerability in the Windows Server Message Block (SMB) server.
Microsoft issued critical security updates to patch this vulnerability on March 14, 2017. <https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx> To verify that the MS17-010 patch is installed.
