A public utility was hacked

A public utility was hackedIt was revealed yesterday that a US Public utility was breached and the internal network running the utilitie’s infrastructure was indeed under attack. The US Government’s Department of Homeland Security stepped in to help repel the attack and to identify the attackers. At this time the specific utility and the hacker’s identities have not been released publicly. However, had this attack been more successful, this story might not have been written at all, because I wouldn’t have any power to get it published. So for those who think it can’t happen, it just did. Thankfully, all the secrets of how we can do things have not been leaked by Snowden, and the critical infrastructure was protected.
