Submission + - Western Energy Companies Under Sabotage Threat

An anonymous reader writes: In a post published Monday, Symantec writes that western countries including the U.S., Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Turkey, and Poland are currently the victims of an ongoing cyberespionage campaign. The group behind the operation, called Dragonfly by Symantec, originally targeted aviation and defense companies as early as 2011, but in early 2013, they shifted their focus to energy firms. They use a variety of malware tools, including remote access trojans (RATs) and operate during Eastern European business hours. Symantec compares them to Stuxnet except that 'Dragonfly appears to have a much broader focus with espionage and persistent access as its current objective with sabotage as an optional capability if required.'
