I read that article and also thought: what happened to private 
networks? That SCADA is running on the internet is just daft.

My question to the experts: How secure are VPNs running on the 
general internet? You would think that banking networks are in that 
class. Are they also as 'open' to attack as what the FBI is 
criticising the utility companies for?

sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
