itwbennett writes “Claiming revenge for an ‘illegitimate firing,’ someone has posted screenshots and other data, apparently showing that he was able to break into a 200 megawatt wind turbine system owned by NextEra Energy Resources, a subsidiary of Florida Power & Light. In an e-mail interview, Bgr R said he’s a former employee who discovered a vulnerability in the company’s Cisco security management software that he then used to hack into the SCADA systems used to control the turbines. His motive was to embarrass the company, he said.”
