McAfee product coverage and mitigations for malware or indicators associated with the recent attacks (a.k.a. Dragonfly, Energetic Bear, Havex/SYSMain) on industrial control systems (ICS’s) are listed below.
The Havex remote access tool is common across these associated attacks or campaigns–including Dragonfly. We have seen Havex in ICS-specific targeted campaigns. It can detect and affect ICS- and SCADA-specific services, such as OPCServer (OLE for Process Control).
