Title: ‘US nuclear power plants very vulnerable to cyber attacks’
Date: Feb 25, 2013
Former Pentagon official Michael Maloof: In the case of the United States it’s aimed at our grid system, as the president point out, and at our critical infrastructure, which is very vulnerable already and this has been known, including our nuclear reactors.
There have been recent tests on this and they’ve been quite successful in disrupting the ability of these nuclear reactors to respond.
So the threat of a cyber attack from unknown entities is very serious.
