Re: same as it ever was
Dave Frymier blogged about the lax security around IT infrastructure in airports, utilities, and other critical areas for Dark Readong back in April in 'Baby Teeth' In Infrastructure Cyber Security Framework. Sadly it looks like nothing much has changed. But it's a good read if anyone wants to dive deeper into the subject.

No surprise here that operations/uptime trumps shoring up cyber security for ICS/SCADA folks, but Frymier's point that an attack could cause an outage is the bottom line here. And the data indicating that patching is still not common practice is interesting, especially now that more (but not enough) ICS/SCADA vendors are actually issuing security updates.
