Lay of Mr Robot and watch Fight Club.  You can't just penetrate everything without physical presence.  When you can disconnect a patient from life support from a remote distance post it here.  When you open the jail doors without going in let me know also.  When you can open all the deadbolts from far away than shit has hit the fun.

Funny you should say that. Did you know many prisons in the
US run on SCADA systems ?

Pasted from here: http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/congress-warned-north-korean-emp-attack-would-kill-90-of-all-americans/article/2637349

In contrast to all the terrorism bullshit this seems to be a genuine threat, and one that cannot be met by the superior military power of the US.
Combined with Cyber attacks this could a really devastating blow. ------------paste

WASHINGTON SECRETS
Congress warned North Korean EMP attack would kill '90% of all Americans'
by Paul Bedard | Oct 12, 2017, 4:25 PM

Congress was warned Thursday that North Korea is capable of attacking the U.S. today with a nuclear EMP bomb that could indefinitely shut down the electric power grid and kill 90 percent of "all Americans" within a year.

At a House hearing, experts said that North Korea could easily employ the "doomsday scenario" to turn parts of the U.S. to ashes.

In calling on the Pentagon and President Trump to move quickly to protect the grid, the experts testified that an explosion of a high-altitude nuclear bomb delivered by a missile or satellite "could be to shut down the U.S. electric power grid for an indefinite period, leading to the death within a year of up to 90 percent of all Americans."

• Army chief: Jim Mattis 'very clearly' tasked soldiers to be ready for war with North Korea

• What winning a war against North Korea might look like

Two members of the former congressional EMP commission said the threat to the U.S. has never been higher, in part because of the current high level of saber rattling by both sides and North Korea's surprising display over the past six months of its ability to deliver on its threats.

"With the development of small nuclear arsenals and long-range missiles by new, radical U.S. adversaries, beginning with North Korea, the threat of a nuclear EMP attack against the U.S. becomes one of the few ways that such a country could inflict devastating damage to the United States. It is critical, therefore, that the U.S. national leadership address the EMP threat as a critical and existential issue, and give a high priority to assuring the leadership is engaged and the necessary steps are taken to protect the country from EMP," the experts told a House Homeland Security subcommittee.

William R. Graham, chairman of the former EMP commission and its former chief of staff, Peter Vincent Pry, said that the U.S. has ignored the warning signs for years and that North Korea's military moves this year must be seen as a wake-up call.

They said:

    Just six months ago, most experts thought North Korea's nuclear arsenal was primitive, some academics claiming it had as few as 6 A-Bombs. Now the intelligence community reportedly estimates North Korea has 60 nuclear weapons.
    Just six months ago, most experts thought North Korea's ICBMs were fake, or if real could not strike the U.S. mainland. Now the intelligence community reportedly estimates North Korea's ICBMs can strike Denver and Chicago, and perhaps the entire United States.
    Just six months ago, most experts thought North Korea was many years away from an H-Bomb. Now it appears North Korea has H-Bombs comparable to sophisticated U.S. two-stage thermonuclear weapons.
    Just six months ago, most experts claimed North Korean ICBMs could not miniaturize an A-Bomb or design a reentry vehicle for missile delivery. Now the intelligence community reportedly assesses North Korea has miniaturized nuclear weapons, and has developed reentry vehicles for missile delivery, including by ICBMs that can strike the U.S.
    After massive intelligence failures grossly underestimating North Korea's long-range missile capabilities, number of nuclear weapons, warhead miniaturization, and proximity to an H-Bomb, the biggest North Korean threat to the U.S. remains unacknowledged--nuclear EMP attack.

Their testimony also highlighted the failure of the Pentagon or Congress to extend the life of the EMP Commission and they recommended deeper study into the threat, include from a simple solar flare.

"Our current vulnerability invites attack," they said.

and what makes you so sure ? I agree that panic making stories are always good for the defense sector, but that does not change the actual facts.
any western state today is highly dependent on computer networks, from administration to hospitals and a million more things. take them out and total chaos will be the result.
just look at british hospitals or to the stuff happening in ukraine. low effort, nearly untraceable, no direct civilian casualties...the perfect weapon to fight a low budget war...

The chances of that happening is less than 1 in a million lunches.  Most likely China wants to take over and Kim Un is attracting attention.  It works great for the defense contractors in the US too. Posted on def.i2p

Look at how easy it was to do in British hospitals:

https://www.nao.org.uk/report/investigation-wannacry-cyber-attack-and-the-nhs/

_Unpatched_ Windows _XP_

In 2016, no less.

You can penetrate this without even trying. Just wonder why
it does not happen more often...

Maybe a proof for the basic benevolent nature of man ? And
now everybody:

Always look on the bright side of life (dada, dada,
dada)....
