Terry McCorkle, a Seattle-based researcher presented the results of an independent study on Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition Systems (SCADA) and Industrial Control Systems (ICS) where he and his research partner Billy Rios attempted to find 100 bugs in 100 days. They wound up finding 1000+ bugs in 8-9 months, 95 that were easily exploitable. McCorkle went on to call many of them “blatantly obvious” and “straight outta of the ‘90s.”
