A new cybersecurity risk with direct impacts on most manufacturers has recently been discovered. The Department of Energy (DOE), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the National Security Agency (NSA), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) released a joint Cybersecurity Advisory (CSA) on Wednesday. The CSA warns that specific advanced persistent threat (APT) actors have exhibited the capability to gain complete system access to multiple industrial control system (ICS)/supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) devices.
The affected devices often serve as the interface between traditional computers and control systems such as PLCs, actuators, and sensors in industrial equipment and manufacturing operations.
