Russia may be primed to hack America’s infrastructure

As Russian troops attack Ukraine, experts are warning that Vladimir Putin could also seize the opportunity to deploy Russia’s trove of cyber-weapons to hack America’s infrastructure. "There have been some infrastructure-based attacks where [Russia has] been caught breaking into dams and power plants and things like that in the U.S." explained Justin Cappos, member of the NYU Center for Cybersecurity and director of the Secure Systems Lab, adding that "It's possible that they're in substantial parts of U.S. infrastructure, and are sort of dormant and have capabilities that they haven't gone and exercised.”
