Israel Electric network was attacked by hackers

Article translated to English -

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
