Aug 14th 2003 Blackout and the Blaster worm

Security: Bruce Schneier points out some interesting angles on the official report into the US power blackout of Aug 14th:

Why the tortured prose? The writers take pains to assure us that the power generation and delivery systems were not affected by MSBlast. But what about the alarm systems? Clearly, they were all affected by something–and all at the same time.

To be honest, it sounds pretty damn close to me, as I’ve said before.
