ALISO VIEJO, Calif., Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Last week an unidentified attacker gained access to a water treatment plant's network and modified chemical dosages to dangerous levels.
The FBI has issued an alert on Tuesday, raising attention to three security issues that have been seen on the plant's network following last week's hack. In these cases, the FBI recommends a series of basic security best practices as an intermediary way to mitigate threats.
