Hacker Makes Deadly Water Hack

 

A hacker compromised a water department system in Oldsmar, Florida. The hack remotely increased a base chemical to a much greater than acceptable standard to a dangerous if not outright deadly level.

Lucky for the end users of the Oldsmar, Florida water system a worker caught the hack spotting crazy high levels.

Where is the Skynet connection you ask? Well when one day when an Artificial Intelligence wakes up and becomes self aware, it could copy this attack against humanity across the country and the advanced world as the trend of automating routine tasks is increasing done.
