Tipton Municipal Utilities

Victim

“We were targeted and we have not been compromised,” said Jim Ankrum, general manager of Tipton Municipal Utilities (TMU) in a CNN report. TMU provides electricity, water and wastewater treatment for Tipton, a town of 5,000 people that is about 40 miles north of Indianapolis. “TMU experienced minimal disruption and remained operational at all times.”
A Russia-linked hacking group claimed responsibility, according to the report. The same group claimed credit for a string of hacking incidents against water facilities in Texas earlier this year.
