    Israel's Minister of Infrastructure, Energy and Water, Yuval Steinitz, told CyberTech 2016 attendees on Tuesday that the country's Public Utility Authority had been targeted by malware, and that some systems were still not working properly.

    "Yesterday we identified one of the largest cyber attacks that we have experienced," Steinitz said.
