ISIS attacks the US power grid


The Islamic State is trying to hack American electrical power companies but these attacks have been unsuccessful. This information was disclosed last October 14 by government officials at a conference in the involved companies of the US energy sector. The FBI said that the tools used to attack systems are not complex enough to pose a problem of security to companies. Besides the likelihood of an attack is able to disable the entire energy system is extremely improbable said John Riggi, head of FBI's cyber division.
