    A known threat group targeting industrial safety systems in the Middle East is using similar attacks on industrial systems in the United States, according to new research from Dragos. The Xenotime group has been labeled the most dangerous threat activity group because it is the only group intentionally compromising and disrupting industrial safety instrumented systems. Though Dragos has not identified the specific targets of the latest attack on industrial controls systems in the US, it has reported that the attacks resembles the Russian attack on US critical infrastructure reported by US-CERT earlier this year, noting that the malware shows similarities to Trisis, which was used in an attack last year in Saudi Arabia.
