Cyber Vulnerability Affects Schneider Electric Computer Control Systems

Posted: Friday, July 16, 2021

For MMRMA members with Schneider Electric computer control systems onsite, cyber risk experts suggest reaching out to your vendors as soon as possible to find out their suggested remediation process and how to best protect your systems.

According to TechRepublic, "A vulnerability discovered in Schneider Electric's Modicon programmable logic controllers, used in millions of devices worldwide, could allow a remote attacker to gain total and undetectable control over the chips, leading to remote code execution, malware installation and other security compromises." See their article below, as well as one from Cyberscoop.
