In this article “The United States Industrial Control Systems Cyber Emergency Response Team (ICS-CERT) has issued a warning about an active “spear phishing” campaign targeting companies in the natural gas pipeline sector.

In an advisory issued last week, ICS-CERT said it has received information about targeted attacks and intrusions into multiple organizations over the past several months.

The attacks are related to a single campaign and appear to have started in late December 2011, the advisory noted. “Analysis shows that the spear-phishing attempts have targeted a variety of personnel within these organizations; however, the number of persons targeted appears to be tightly focused,” the ICS-CERT said.”
