The latest issue of German weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT features a report on the netwars / out of CTRL TV documentary. DIE ZEIT spoke with hacker Felix “FX” Lindner and Eberhard Oehler, head of the German energy supplier in Ettlingen. Oehler asked FX to carry out a controled hack in order to test the resistance of his control system – something that has never been done before in front of a camera.
When FX gets to work, Oehler somehow still hopes his system might be safe. Until his phone rings. “Just a few clicks more and the lights go out”, FX tells Oehler only three days after the started his laptop. The TV documentary not only shows how FX gets into the system of the energy supplier. Director Marcel Kolvenbach also spoke to experts, visited Israelian cyber experts, Chinese hackers and attended the “Black Hat” hackers conference in Las Vegas.
