Submission + - Backdoor in RuggedOS systems: Infrastructure, military systems vulnerable (arstechnica.com)

FhnuZoag writes: Via Ars Technica ( http://arstechnica.com/business/news/2012/04/backdoor-in-mission-critical-hardware-threatens-power-traffic-control-systems.ars ): A backdoor has been found in Canadian based RuggedCom's 'Rugged Operating System', providing easy access to anyone with the devices's MAC address — something often publically displayed. Rugged OS is being used in a wide range of applications, including traffic control, power generation, and even US Navy bases. The backdoor was first found over a year ago, and RuggedCom have so far refused to patch out the exploit.
