Personally I think this is a bunch of political FUD. The first comment says it all.


According to CyberScoop, the FBI briefings have been met with mixed results, with energy, infrastructure and companies using ISC and SCADA systems more receptive than technology companies, where the FBI's claims have been met with scepticism.

Was CBS News lead tonight (8/22).  Has CIA concur with FBI; but curiously don't assert illegal activity, or impose non-government restrictions.  


Don't think it's all "just" anything - but definite political/economic power plays involved.  


Expect will see more pieces fall into place, eventually.  


US based Kaspersky tech leads I've heard don't strike my as easily duped, Putin pawns.
