There's no proof that a suspected hacking attack on the Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems of a U.S. energy plant actually occurred, according to the operator, NextEra Energy Resources.

Moreover, the company has claimed that the information posted on the Full Disclosure mailing list as evidence of the attack is already public.
