BURLINGTON, Vt. — The malicious software linked to a Russian hacking group associated with attempts to influence the U.S. presidential election has been found within a computer belonging to  Burlington Electric, one of Vermont’s electrical utilities.

The utility found the malware on a laptop that was not connected to the operation of the grid, Vermont Public Service Commissioner Christopher Recchia said.

Based on his knowledge, Recchia said Friday night he did not believe the electrical power grid was at risk from the incident.

"The grid is not in danger," Recchia said. "The utility flagged it, saw it, notified appropriate parties and isolated that one laptop with that malware on it."

The Obama administration released code associated with the Russian hacking group, dubbed Grizzly Steppe, on Thursday.
