Federal officials have warned public utilities to be on the look out for possible attacks from hackers, according to a story in the Washington Post.
Patrick Wood III, the chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, alerted officials at a meeting in January and has mentioned the topic in public appearances. The concern may have been sparked by his attendance at a demonstration at the Energy Department's Idaho National Laboratory, which simulated the damage that would be caused by cutting off an energy-generating turbine's oil supply.
Wood's reaction? "I wished I'd had a diaper on."
