Critical infrastructure around the world is built around and runs on Microsoft Windows platforms. Due to the nature of the facilities and other constraints, these systems are often old and unpatched, and hence have many vulnerabilities that can be exploited. Some of these systems are connected directly to the Internet, while others are connected indirectly via the organizations business network.
This talk will give a short history of control systems, where they are used, challenges in keeping them updated and some of the ways hackers are exploiting these systems.
