PLC Controlers, Stuxnet, and Kinetic Attacks: Black Hat 2011

August 04, 2011 Added by:Infosec Island Admin

Today we have a hacker community out there able to get their hands on code easily and even perhaps the PLC systems themselves to create even more exploits. Add to this that many SCADA systems have been connected to the Internet (as they should NEVER BE) ripe for attack and we have a big problem...

Security and Due Diligence

May 28, 2011 Added by:Chris Blask

Behind all the technology and corporations and globe-spanning markets and networks there are individual human beings. The actions and intent of those individuals shines through the layers between them and the rest of us like arc lights through kleenex. There is no replacement for intent...

The Marketing Department Fixed Those SCADA Vulnerabilities

May 25, 2011 Added by:J. Oquendo

DHS, Siemens and other similar organizations are naive to think that attackers aren't actively exploiting their software. Regardless if a researcher decided to not publicly speak about an exploit, there is an assumption that it isn't already exploited. How wrong they are....

Homemade Cyber Weapon On Par With Stuxnet Virus

May 25, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"The reaction by Siemens is the old school knee-jerk reaction: 'Just 'cus some kids can do it does not mean we are targeted'. Industrial control vendors and users have to take this very seriously. They are being targeted, they are vulnerable, and the repercussions could be expensive..."

Security Concerns Nix Presentation on SCADA Exploits

May 19, 2011 Added by:Headlines

“Things could explode. I don’t want to overplay this and sound like it’s a bunch of FUD but physical damage can occur and people can be seriously injured or worse. So we felt it was best to be prudent and wait a bit longer until we get more information," said NSS Labs CEO Rick Moy...

Iran May Sue Siemens over Stuxnet Virus

April 18, 2011 Added by:Headlines

"Iran's Foreign Ministry should probe into the political and legal aspects of the cyber attack while other Iranian bodies should pursue and complain to international circles... Siemens should explain why and how it provided the enemies with the codes for the SCADA software..."

No Sign of Stuxnet in Critical U.S. Systems - So Far

December 08, 2010 Added by:Headlines

Only a small part of the Stuxnet code would have to be re-written by rogue groups to disrupt SCADA systems. It can be easily done, because all SCADA systems run on Windows. After the arrival of Stuxnet, shutting down the entire power infrastructure of a city is no longer science fiction..
