    If it has a computer, it can be hacked. If you connect it to a network, it can be hacked remotely. This should come as no surprise. Once upon a time, we never connected SCADA systems to a network because network security was not sufficient or mature enough for that. Now we've come a long way in what we can do with technological security measures, and so we connect SCADA systems to networks including the Internet. As a result, SCADA systems now get hacked all the time. More secure networks have led to more vulnerabilities, not fewer, because arrogance.
