Industrial Control Systems (ICS) and Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) networks control our most critical infrastructures. Power generation and distribution, industrial manufacturing, chemical refineries, oil rigs, large communication systems – any plant that relies on automation utilizes some sort of SCADA network.
If you’re running Windows Server 2003 with IIS 6.0 with WebDAV enabled, a recently-discovered exploitable vulnerability allows a remote attacker to run code against the application software and take control of the machine. The attacker could inject code and commands and get feedback, taking control of operating system level functions. This means that your critical data and intellectual property are at risk of compromise.
