A code associated with the Russian hacking operation dubbed Grizzly Steppe by the Obama administration has been detected within the system of a Vermont utility, according to U.S. officials.

.

While the Russians did not actively use the code to disrupt operations, according to officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a security matter, the discovery underscores the vulnerabilities of the nations electrical grid. And it raises fears in the U.S. government that Russian government hackers are actively trying to penetrate the grid to carry out potential attacks.

.

Officials in government and the utility industry regularly monitor the grid because it is highly computerized and any disruptions can have disastrous implications for the countrys medical and emergency services.

.

Burlington Electric said in a statement that the company detected a malware code used in the Grizzly Steppe operation in a laptop that was not connected to the organizations grid systems. The firm said it took immediate action to isolate the laptop and alert federal authorities.

.

Friday night, Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin (D) called on federal officials to conduct a full and complete investigation of this incident and undertake remedies to ensure that this never happens again.

.

Vermonters and all Americans should be both alarmed and outraged that one of the worlds leading thugs, Vladimir Putin, has been attempting to hack our electric grid, which we rely upon to support our quality-of-life, economy, health, and safety, Shumlin said in a statement. This episode should highlight the urgent need for our federal government to vigorously pursue and put an end to this sort of Russian meddling.

.

Sen. Patrick J. Leahy (D-Vt.) said he was briefed on the attempts to penetrate the electric grid by Vermont State Police onFriday evening. This is beyond hackers having electronic joy rides  this is now about trying to access utilities to potentially manipulate the grid and shut it down in the middle of winter, Leahy said in a statement. That is a direct threat to Vermont and we do not take it lightly.
