What if a hacker could tamper with your water meter to do dangerous things? It may sound far-fetched but, after Stuxnet, no one should doubt the ramifications of designer malware planted on critical systems.

This Black Hat talk is particularly interesting because the speaker, John McNabb of South Shore PC Services, spent 13 years managing a small water system and claims to have deep knowledge of how these things work.

McNabb says research into wireless water meters is crucial because they are a potential security hole in a critical infrastructure and can pose a wide range of problems.

In this talk, McNabb promises to present an overview of drinking water security, review reported water system security incidents and the state of drinking water security over the past year. He will also provide a deep dive into the hardware, software, topology, and vulnerabilities of wireless water meter networks and how to sniff wireless water meter
