Hackers-Arise Gets International Recognition for Exploiting SCADA System Vulnerability

Updated: Dec 31, 2022


October 25, 2016, Voice of America (VOA) News (voanews.com) ran an article about the vulnerability of SCADA/ICS systems. In that article in the second paragraph titled "Headline Grabbers", it cited:

Because of the potential for catastrophic damage, some hackers have long targeted ICS networks in hopes of grabbing headlines. Just last month, an anonymous hacker detailed a successful hack of a Schneider Electric system that controls building heating and cooling systems.

The loyal readers of Hackers-Arise.com will recognize that the "anonymous hacker" was OTW. Last month,OTW was the FIRST to demonstrate the vulnerability of these SCADA systems from Schneider Electric in his article "SCADA Hacking: Hacking the Schneider Electric Building System".

You can read all of OTW's series on SCADA hacking here

The article goes on to say, that demonstrating this hack on Hackers-Arise led Schneider Electric to issue a patch to these systems. You are VERY welcome, Schneider Electric.

It's nice that the international news media is finally recognizing the important work we do here at Hackers-Arise.
