Hackers Have Reportedly Infiltrated The US Power Grids

The IT Security firm Symantec revealed on Wednesday that hackers have targeted energy companies in the US and across Europe in their latest hack attacks resulting in attaining hands-on access to power grid functions. They have now acquired enough control that they can easily shut down and cause a widespread outage in the US whenever they want to. The campaign in which dozens of companies from the energy sector were targeted is called Dragonfly 2.0. The attacks started in the first half of 2017, and in total there were 20 successful cases.
