CISA warns of attacks targeting Internet-connected UPS devices

In a joint advisory with the Department of Energy, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) warned U.S. organizations this week to secure internet-connected uninterrupted power supply (UPS) devices from ongoing attacks.

Used as emergency power backup solutions for a variety of digital computing environments, UPS devices are widely used, making this a critical security alert.

UPS units connected to the Internet allow admins to perform various remote tasks such as power monitoring and routine maintenance, which also exposes them to attacks.

What to do:

Remember, the CISA, and Citynet recommends all organizations—regardless of size—adopt a heightened posture when it comes to cybersecurity and protecting their most critical assets.
