Russian Malware Found At Vermont Electric Company,
But  Accusations of Fake News Fly

However, even as media and politicians reacted with alarm to this apparent new evidence of Russian malfeasance, critics took shots at the Post for what they said was a hyperbolic headline and misleading story. The story was originally titled Russian hackers penetrated U.S. electricity grid through a utility in Vermont, officials say. But, speaking to the Burlington Free Press after the Post storys publication, a Vermont utility official clarified that the software was found only on one computer, which was not connected to the electrical grid, and that the grid was not in danger.

Glenn Greenwald, calling the story a symptom of Russia Hysteria, points out that the presence of Russian-made malware isnt necessarily evidence of a Russian operation, as the Posts amended headline still claims. The software could have been placed by nearly anyone. Meanwhile, The Daily Caller describes the Posts report as a False News Story.

The two have different reasons for questioning an emerging status quo that paints Russia as a hacking villain. Greenwalds association with Wikileaks and Edward Snowdens NSA leak gives him a personal stake, since those players are increasingly being tarred as having more than incidental ties to Russia. But Greenwald, a veteran opponent of the Iraq War, also sees overstatements about Russian hacking as a symptom of the same sort of group-think, fear-mongering, [and] coercive peer-pressure that silenced critics in that era.

.

The Caller, meanwhile, seems to be falling in line with a right-wing anti-consensus that regards the Russia hacking story primarily as a bid to discredit President-elect Donald Trump. Conservative outlets have also begun aggressively labelling stories from the mainstream media fake news, at least partly to push back against another post-election narrative that had misleading stories swaying voters towards Trump.

.

Regardless of attribution, the detection of the malware should be extremely worrisome.
