Who Luigi Auriemma? a 30-year-old Italian researcher, with a passion for discovering bugs in software, has a long series of successes to his credit, only that they talk more about it in the United States than in Italy. His latest discovery made stars security tremble and strips. Auriemma previously dealt mainly with the security problems of viedogames, evidently an excellent gym.In recent days Auriemma has discovered at least a dozen holes, security problems in SCADA software (supervisory control and data acquisition), in practice the software that governs central electricity, oil companies, water treatment plants and many other utilities. Some of the discovered vulnerabilities allow remote execution of malicious codes, others the possibility of completing a Denial of Service. malicious codes remotely, but also the most serious problems concern the PLC (Programmable logic controller) software. In practice, those who control physical instruments, with all the risks that this entails. An attacker could take control of devices, tools, power plant systems, refineries etc. seriously endangering the lives of miles of people and the environment. Safety is clearly not the highest priority for those who develop this type of software, certainly not widespread, but extremely sensitive, since it governs industries and central activities in the life of society. USA Auriemma's discoveries have made the rounds of the main information networks, have had much relevance and raised concern
