I can't see - buffering, buffering, buffering - any problems. Of course
I don't know anything about the NBN because living 1/2 way between
Sydney and Canberra we are so isolated that we are only offered
satellite. If you've got kids at school or uni + want to run a business
and want to work during the day/peak hours it is useless because the
packs don't give enough data. ADSL rules OK (sometimes)

Yes, we have NBN Skymuster back in Tassie. In truth, it's been quite
reliable. Had it since 2012 (I think). Although I've noticed speeds
and latency quality dropping lately.

Ah you must be a neighbour. Same problem, I miss the old adsl, all you
could eat for $29.95 pm and it loaded a web page so much quicker than Sky
Muster can, and now i get 80gig for $74,95 a month. OOohh so lucky the NBN
came here.

Only the dumb and stupid. Why go to all that physical effort when you
can obtain greater returns from digital efforts.

You have access to NBN that works somewhat for you? You lucky lucky bastard

What indeed could go wrong.

Kinda depends on what software they're operating. Our banks, govt
depts, shops, supermarkets, travel operators, indeed just about
every enterprise in the nation use Microsoft systems; inherently
unstable, errorprone and insecure. These additions gonna be any
different?

How much of that is off-peak? There are lots of plans that offer 150 Gb
but when you look at them it is only 30Gb on peak. Even doing research
now most sites are hugely graphics heavy, most of them just pretty
corporate pictures, so it does take more download than it used to.

In theory, this shouldn't present that much of an issue. Take traffic
lights, for example.

The expectation is that the basic rules of operation that ensure that
only one direction gets green, and defines the period that a light stays
yellow/orange, are built into the system hardware/firmware, with the
latter only capable of being modified on site.

With such a design, the most a hacker could achieve would be to change
the phasing, which might be disruptive, but wouldn't be unsafe.

We would never see the kind of thing shown in US TV/movies where a
hacker changes all the lights to green at the same time.

That's the theory.

The first inroad into that security is likely to be the ability to
update firmware remotely. It's convenient for sure, but it has risks.
One would like to assume that the replacement firmware is at least
cryptographically signed, but now mistakes creep in, with either the
signing key being stolen/leaked, or the algorithm itself being found to
be flawed. Or some idiot developer gets the verification wrong or just
fails to implement it, and that doesn't get discovered until a hacker
realises they can install updated firmware with any signature.

I doubt anyone would design the system so that the lights are directly
controlled remotely, because it would very quickly be discovered that
that doesn't work reliably. Depending on the level of incompetence
involved, that might be after some crashes, or just after some traffic jams.

The article mentions train line boom gates. I would be very surprised if
anyone thought it reasonable to control the gates that way. Most likely,
they're just talking about monitoring. The same is true for most other
things on the list.

All that said, I've found that it doesn't matter how low I set my
expectation of technological competence, there will be people in
positions where they can do damage who don't reach that level.

Sylvia.
