US suspects Russian hackers of attacking water system

The cyber attack had resulted in the burn out of a water pump caused by hackers using Russian IP addresses repeatedly switching the pump on and off, the “Public Water District Cyber Intrusion” report of Illinois Statewide Terrorism and Intelligence Center was quoted by the paper as saying.

The report also says the attackers got access using passwords stolen from the software vendor that sells the Industrial Control System.
