So, early this morning I was linked to an article about SCADA pumps from someone in IRC.
This article was located here:
My eyes were drawn, nary, pulled, to a particular quote.
'In an email sent several hours after this article was first published, DHS spokesman Peter Boogaard wrote: "DHS and the FBI are gathering facts surrounding the report of a water pump failure in Springfield Illinois. At this time there is no credible corroborated data that indicates a risk to critical infrastructure entities or a threat to public safety."'
This was stupid. You know. Insanely stupid. I dislike, immensely, how the DHS tend to downplay how absolutely FUCKED the state of national infrastructure is.
I've also seen various people doubt the possibility an attack like this could be done.
The city of South Houston has a really insecure system. Wanna see? I know ya do.
These are also archived here:
I'm not going to expose the details of the box. No damage was done to any of the machinery; I don't really like mindless vandalism. It's stupid and silly.
On the other hand, so is connecting interfaces to your SCADA machinery to the Internet. I wouldn't even call this a hack, either, just to say. This required almost no skill and could be reproduced by a two year old with a basic knowledge of Simatic.
Greetz to a select group of big heckers. You know who you are.
