Submission + - Chinese Hackers Target US Gas Pipelines in Die Hard-Style Attack (ibtimes.co.uk)

DavidGilbert99 writes: "In Die Hard 4.0 Bruce Willis battled to thwart a group of sophisticated hackers who take control of the US energy infrastructure.

In what appears to be a case of real life mirroring fiction, a classified government report suggests critical US gas pipeline companies have been hacked and the hackers could have gain enough access to cripple the pipelines, with one expert saying: ""Anyone can blow up a gas pipeline with dynamite. But with this stolen information, if I wanted to blow up not one, but 1,000 compressor stations, I could.""
