The Hacker News
Summary
Microsoft has raised concerns about an increase in cyber attacks targeting internet-exposed operational technology (OT) devices since late 2023. These attacks can compromise industrial processes by manipulating OT system parameters, leading to malfunctions and outages. Microsoft highlighted the importance of enhancing OT security to prevent exploitation, especially given the devices' vulnerability due to weak passwords and outdated software. Recent geopolitical tensions have further heightened risks, with advisories from Rockwell Automation and the U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) urging protective measures. Additionally, the emergence of malware like Fuxnet demonstrates the destructive potential of such attacks on critical infrastructure.
