CAPTCHAs. You've all had to use them at some point - those funny, distorted versions of a piece of text that only a human can decipher. I was shocked to learn that CAPTCHAs were being used in eBanking and could successfully be attacked nearly 100% of the time....

To at least some of us in the control systems community these vulnerabilities are not unexpected. The fact that many of these systems are also connected to the Internet as Eireann Leverett demonstrated is also not new, even though the numbers of control system connected to the Internet are striking.

Input validation is the single best defense against injection and XSS vulnerabilities. Done right, proper input validation techniques can make web-applications invulnerable to such attacks. Done wrongly, they are little more than a false sense of security...

In attempts to prevent XSS attacks many organizations block or HTML encode special characters (<, >, "). In order to be fair I will admit that this prevents many successful XSS attacks, but at the end of the day many of these web applications are still vulnerable to XSS...

On any Linux-based system with an unencrypted hard drive, it is possible to completely overtake a system once you have gained physical access. Often this is easily accomplished with a live CD distribution, such as Backtrack or Ubuntu and some command line tools...
