US Hacking Russian Electrical Grid and Other Targets

The US has been hacking into Russia's electrical grid and other targets, presumably planting malware should it become necessary to disable or degrade Russia's electrical networks in the event of a conflict with her. 

The US govt has made this hacking operation public by disclosing it to one of the 2 major state newspapers, the NY times, so as to serve as a warning to Russia and any other state that a price will be paid by them in a cyber or kinetic war.

Moscow has responded that such attacks could result in a cyber war.

As an aside, contrast this with Obama's weak stance of refusing to respond to Russia's own aggressive hacking of the US' electrical grid and other entities despite the howls of his own administration.
