ISIS is attacking the U.S. energy grid

This is a vulnerability that we have known about for many years, many of the vulnerabilities are plugged or in the process of being plugged, but still we have way to many vulnerabilities. We know China has built both power and even water plants in China that mimic US Systems, for the express purpose of exploiting our systems vulnerabilities. If they chose to help ISIS by selling them or giving them the ability to successfully attack our systems, we could have real problems. There are also Russian firms as well as countless hacker shops they can go to for a quick way to up their expertise. Just think of one or two of our major cities power grids, under the control of the ISIS terrorists. Our FBI and other security folks are fighting them, but it is a big target, and all they have to find is one or two vulnerabilities to create a large problem.
