Security & Hacking: "Nuclear plant cybersecurity and information disclosure - or lack thereof"

Author's Title "Nuclear plant cybersecurity and information disclosure - or lack thereof" article here http://community.controlglobal.com/content/nuclear-plant-cybersecurity-and-information-disclosure-or-lack-thereof

If you think this is unwarranted exaggeration, instead of a desperate cry to fix a hole in a sinking ship, you might consider this article, http://www.nytimes.com/2012/08/11/science/behind-nuclear-breach-a-nuns-bold-fervor.html?pagewanted=all, about the elite 82 year old Nun that penetrated the security at Oak Ridge nuclear reservation in Tennessee.

While that is about physical security, not Cyber security, I think it still supports the premise that there is a problem, and we need to do something about it, other than pretending it doesn't exist.

Oh yeah, that was a little Nuclear plant, the nation's only site for storing and processing weapons-grade uranium!!!

This article http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/09/29/us-usa-nuclear-gaf-idUSBRE88S0F320120929 shows a picture of that facility.

This article, http://ncronline.org/news/peace-justice/photos-break-nuclear-facility-feature-blood-slogans, has pictures of the graffiti & etc that occurs when Nuns attack Nuclear sites.
