At present we now have an integrated architecture where Industrial Control Systems are no longer isolated from traditional networking equipment. In fact, a quick search using the SHODAN search engine will reveal thousands of NiagaraAX devices accessible over the Internet. A weakness within this system could allow an attacker access to critical environmental controls.
This revelation motivated him to do a little ‘vulnerability research’ on the NiagaraAX Framework. To share his findings, he decided to create a short VIDEO CLIP illustrating how an attacker can leverage multiple weaknesses to hack into a buildings’ automation system.
