Yes, you can remotely hack factory, building site cranes. Wait, what? • The Register
"Did you know that the manufacturing and construction industries use radio-frequency remote controllers to operate cranes, drilling rigs, and other heavy machinery? Doesn't matter: they're alarmingly vulnerable to being hacked, according to Trend Micro."

"In addition to basic replay attacks, where commands broadcast by a legitimate operator are recorded by an attacker and rebroadcast in order to take over a targeted plant, attack vectors also included command injection, "e-stop abuse" (where miscreants can induce a denial-of-service condition by continually broadcasting emergency stop commands) and even malicious reprogramming. During detailed testing of one controller/receiver pair, Trend Micro researchers found that forged e-stop commands drowned out legitimate operator commands to the target device."

"Just to keep site managers' blood pressure high, Trend Micro highlighted that not only could script kiddies carry out some of these types of attack against industrial plants, a remote attacker could achieve persistent access by using a battery-powered cellular modem dropped off at a quiet part of a site with a drone."

The Route of a Text Message – the scottbot irregular
"This is the third post in my full-stack dev (f-s d) series on the secret life of data. This installment is about a single text message: how it was typed, stored, sent, received, and displayed. I sprinkle in some history and context to break up the alphabet soup of protocols, but though the piece gets technical, it should all be easily understood."
