Submission + - Energy Sector Watering Hole Attacks tied to DOL Hack (

msm1267 writes: A string of watering hole attacks targeting oil and energy companies dating back to May could be linked to similar attacks against the U.S. Department of Labor website.

Researchers at Cisco discovered the compromised domains of 10 oil and energy companies worldwide, including hydroelectric plants, natural gas distributors, industrial suppliers to the energy sector and investment firms serving those markets. Six of the 10 sites shared the same Web design firm and three of the six are owned by the same parent company. Cisco researchers speculate that credentials at the Web design firm were stolen, leading to the compromises.
