Israel Electric network was attacked by hackers

Article translated to English - https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&hl=en&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.maariv.co.il%2Fnews%2Fisrael%2FArticle-523547&edit-text=&act=url

The Israeli ministry of Energy, PhD Yoval Shtainitz said today (26/1/2016) that the Israel Electric Network underwent a cyber attack yesterday. I an not familiar with the technical details of how the system was attacked and penetrated, but I can say that the deployment of wireless electric meter will probably make it easier to do so.

In 2012 the following video presentation was published on YouTube with a detailed review of security flows in the USA smart meter program and gear.


Mean while in Israel smart meters are being deployed in 4 main cities. I managed to film one in Tel Aviv last month (see video bellow). The smart meter wireless network will most probably make the network more vulnerable to cyber attacks
