New TRITON Malware Targets Industrial Processes

Security firm FireEye has revealed the existence of TRITON malware, which it says targeted industrial processes in the Middle East.  TRITO appears to work by reprogramming the controllers of a Safety Instrumented System so that a malevolent actor can either shut down an industrial process by tricking the SIS into erroneously thinking something is wrong with an industrial system, or can damage or destroy an industrial process by causing the process to operate in an unsafe way without triggering a shutdown or warning.
