The Grid: A Digital Frontier –Repost of loldhs pr0f By A Guest 18 Nov 2011 So, early this morning I was linked to an article about SCADA pumps from someone in IRC… 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… So, y’know. The city of South Houston has a really insecure system.
