So apparently, part of the U.S. critical infrastructure has already been exploited. It doesn’t surprise me. Its all fun and games with developers, engineers and scientists until their ass is getting hacked. They resist. They say “who the hell would hack this system” “HOW the hell would they hack it”. They cut corners and make excuses. Then, when the system is hacked, they blame it on the rain. The good news is that they know its been infiltrated.
I wonder why they didn’t design it as a closed network. Make all critical functions completely inaccessible to the outside world. It’s got me wondering if they even used an Information Assurance standard.
