Vulns in ICS networks
Will be interesting to see what the exploits look like, and in any case higher awareness about the risks in ICS networks is always good.

That being said, there's always going to be an exploitable software piece in the network. If not Windows then SAP, is not SAP then OSISoft. The inherent problem in these networks is the total lack of protection and logging in the controllers themselves. This creates a situation where any type of access to the network (malware, employees...) immediately poses a potentially devestating non-tracable threat.

My two cents anyway..

Electronic Speed Traps
Please people work on hacking the legal scamming companies that take the picture of a car and send a ticket in the mail.

Hack their PII so that the municipalities complicit in this scam get sued along with them....hence no more electronic speeding cams!

Really?
Well I'll be interested to see this.  BOPs connected to ERP?  There may be some weaknesses in deployment of the integration of PCN and Enterprise Networks that would expose weaknesses but it is a fundamental principle of Process Control that you cannot penetrate the control elements of the system.  Looking forward to being proven wrong!
