Pennsylvania water facility hit by Iran-linked hackers

“U.S. officials are investigating an incident at a Pennsylvania water utility after hackers linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps — who have a history of making exaggerated and false claims about their hacking exploits — breached a device at a remote water station. “

“The hackers, who call themselves the “Cyber Av3ngers,” were able to gain control of at least one device at the Municipal Water Authority of Aliquippa, Pa. The hackers breached a remote water station that regulates pressure for two townships with a population of just over 7,000 people. “

“Robert Bible, the general manager of the water authority, told local publications that first reported the news that there was never any threat to the availability of water, and that once they realized the hack occurred, the utility switched to manual operations. “

“The hackers appear to have accessed a Unitronics programmable logic controller and displayed an image that read: “You have been hacked. Down with Israel. Every equipment ‘made in Israel’ is a Cyber Av3ngers legal target.” Unitronics is an Israel-based publicly traded company. “
