Demonstration of a destructive cyber attack vector on “air-gapped” systems

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 10:45:00 -0400

All too often, people claim their systems are air-gapped, and therefore have no cyber vulnerability. But Alternating Current (AC) power cords cross the ostensible “air gap”, and power supplies for laptops, servers, ICSs, etc. have rarely been addressed for cyber security vulnerabilities. This demonstration will remotely cyber attack and permanently disable a fully air-gapped system – in this case, a server, a router, and a PLC connected only to each other.
