Real damage, you say? SCADA is here.

I'm often asked "has cyber ever done any real damage?" as if billions lost, lives ruined, and children harassed isn't enough. Cyber is not a separate entity - it's about living our lives and doing our business.

Today, this news story was published. A lot yet remains to be seen, but such case studies are exactly what we've been waiting for.

Apparently, a steel factory in Germany suffered an attack, which resulted in an industrial attacks... or SCADA, cyber-physical, ICS, or whatever you want to call it - attack.

I hope there will be more published on this.
