Hackers attack power companies
For quite some time I've been giving speeches and talking about the physical damages that malicious hackers could cause with a well crafted cyber attack. I've discussed how vulnerable our (the world's) core infrastructure is and how easily it could be disabled. As a result many people have called me a conspiracy theorist, or accused me of exaggerating. Well, unfortunately now I can say "I told you so." This isn't the first time that hackers have attacked this kind of technology, the US Department of Defense did it during the Aurora Generator Test.
