“A security researcher has discovered multiple security vulnerabilities in Siemens industrial control systems that he says would allow hackers with remote access to the systems to cause physical destruction.

Dillon Beresford canceled a planned demonstration of the vulnerabilities on Wednesday at the Takedown security conference in Texas after Siemens and the Department of Homeland Security expressed concern over the phone and at the conference about disclosing information before Siemens could patch the vulnerabilities.”
