The UK National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has issued an alert to critical national infrastructure (CNI) organisations warning of an emerging threat from state-aligned groups, particularly those sympathetic to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The alert states that newly emerged groups could launch “destructive and disruptive attacks” with less predictable consequences than those of traditional cybercriminals, with CNI organisations strongly encouraged to follow NCSC advice on steps to take when cyber threat is heightened.

I believe this. I do not think it's FUD or fear-mongering or click-bait this time.

You listening, Colonial Pipeline?

Edit: though not known if the group is affiliated w/any other actor, here is another example. This is scary!
