WE ARE THE ARTILLERY: Using Google Fu To Take Down The Grids

In this presentation we will show how effective a team of individuals can be in using open source intelligence gathering techniques in gathering leaked data on the electrical grid. By using Google dorking alone, the team has been able to not only gather insider information on grid technologies but also their deployment in the US including and up to passwords to systems and blueprints and runbooks. Using such information an attacker could not only attempt to gain access to power company and grid networks but also easily be able to connect the dots and perform hybrid (physical and electronic) attacks on the US power grid systems.
