itwbennett writes "Siemens has fixed a pair of bugs in its S7-1200 controller, which is used to control machines on factory floors, power stations and chemical plants. The bugs were discovered earlier this year by NSS researcher Dillon Beresford, who planned to disclose the bugs at Black Hat in August. The US Department of Homeland Security said that Siemens' patches fix 'a portion' of the problems Beresford has discovered and that it 'continues to work with Siemens and Mr. Beresford on the other reported problems.'"
"A complex system that works is invariably found to have evolved from a simple
system that worked."
