Grid Hacked in Ukraine

HACKING THE GRID. Highly destructive malware that infected at least three regional power
companies left hundreds of thousands of homes in the Ukraine without electricity.

"It's a milestone because we've definitely seen targeted destructive events against energy before—oil firms, for instance—but never the event which causes the blackout," John Hultquist, head of iSIGHT's cyber espionage intelligence practice, told Ars. "It's the major scenario we've all been concerned about for so long."
