Industrial control systems used to operate critical U.S. infrastructure including water and energy systems are under attack from cyber actors using malicious software implanted in numerous control systems, the Department of Homeland Security said Friday.

The cyber attacks have been underway since 2011 and U.S. officials suspect Russia is behind them.
