Critical U.S. Infrastructure at Risk of Cyber Attack, Experts Warn
Just as the computers that ran Iran’s nuclear program were sabotaged and crippled by a cyber “super worm” virus, the software used to run much of America’s industrial, transportation and power infrastructure -- including nuclear power plants and major airports -- is vulnerable to cyber attack, and two software companies have revealed dozens of successful hacks to prove it.
Remember, the chance of an event occurring that already happened, is never Zero :xeye:

Why use software when you can use hardware (5 men with AK's storm a nuclear reactor and use explosives to damage the cooling systems and containment vessel) DHS is already training for situations like these, but security has not been beefed up at US nuclear reactors. By the time local LEO responded it would be too late. SWAT would arrive just in time to eliminate the 5 threats and then see the coolant boiling out of a damaged reactor. Terrorists as we know do things in bulk, ie multiple airplanes not just 1, therefor I assume they would go after 5 reactors, not just 1, complicating an already complex NBC threat.

I have a NBC suit and Mask for everyone in my family with a dozen filters per person. This is not for Japan or some other crazy event, it is because the terrorists are already planning their next move which DHS, CIA, etc. think may be on nuclear reactors and/or detonating a dirty bomb in a major city or 5.

True, they do, and they have barbed wire and a wall around most complexes. They were showing the plant on the Mississippi river on CNN today, and I was surprised at how unprotected it looked. They had dry casks out in the open in the yard.. they even said they were afraid a terrorist would fly a plane into the the dry casks because they are open in the yard and a soft target. It would be a cake walk for 5 men to take out the SWAT from afar and then storm the building. Here in America we have the illusion of security, but not real honest security. Nuclear security is severely lacking, we need to bring some troops home to guard the boarder and our important infrastructure IE nuclear reactors.
