Listen: Triton: A Malware Designed To Kill Humans, Part 1
"Have you ever seen a petrochemical plant. They are massive constructions like small cities and they're incredibly complicated buildings and structures connected to other structures into wine with other structures which is an endless steel pipes. Running in every which way how anybody thought to build such a convoluted thing in how anybody actually actually understands what it's all four is frankly beyond me. Fatal Hobby is one of these giant labyrinth. Plants it's is located on Saudi Arabia's west coast right along the Red Sea just off the halfway point between Mika and Medina. It's like some kind end of a futuristic robot city three thousand acres tall metal towers surrounded by six or seven story tall structures made of of steel pipes and beams. That makes them look like the metal skeletons of buildings half finished with all those pipes it produces around five million tonnes of petrochemical products every year. It's difficult to imagine. How a single piece of computer software could have of any kind of effect on such a massive place? If you were to have visited Petro Lobby on Saturday evening. In June. Two thousand seventeen seventeen hardly anything would have appeared wrong. June happened to be the month of Ramadan that year so it was even quieter then. Normal Saturday at Bitta lobby would otherwise be. The only event of note occurred when without warning or explanation section section of the plant shutdown the shutdown had been triggered by a safety system. No real damage was done but it was Strange nonetheless so team of specialists was called in to investigate the cause. The team ran some tests then brought awfully safety. Device backed with laboratory for further inspection protests. Turned up nothing. The vice seemed to be in fine working order. Shutdown must have been some strange one off glitch. They figured they were of course wrong. But it's hard to blame them. What what was actually going on just under the noses had never existed before in the history of cybersecurity?."
