For everyone who is now saying that the laptop that was hacked at the Burlington Electric is a fake news because it was not actually controlling any part of the grid, I present the Russian’s motivation:
The Russians were shooting across our bow. They want us to know what their capabilities are. Leaving easily identified malware code behind is like the Pink Panther leaving the embroidered glove, or the Mafia leaving the race horse’s head in the bed.
This is serious.
