Abstract:
Cybersecurity attacks on production systems date to at least 1982, when a Trojan virus triggered the Trans-Siberian pipeline explosion. In At the Abyss: An Insider’s History of the Cold War, author Thomas C. Reed writes that the compromised control software made “pumps, turbines and valves” go haywire, resulting in “the most monumental non-nuclear explosion and fire ever seen from space.”
