Ab3a, thanks for all the detail. That helps a lot. But I have an oddball question. When it comes to security, who are the likely enemies?

We would like to think that we're defending against evil script kiddies living in their Mom's Basment, or some foreign hacker working for a government agency. So many decide to defend against the faceless Man-In-The-Middle attacks because they're an easy sell to management. But that's not what experince has shown. 

In reality most of them are your co-workers.  Yes, the ones you drink coffee with every morning.  Aside of the flimsy and unstable designs or configurations, it usually takes extensive inside knowledge to do real, lasting damage to most control sytems.

That's why the most notorious cases are usually the work of insiders.

Jake, that's what I've always thought. The disgruntled employee is the most dangerous hacker. That employee is the one who knows where are the buttons and levers are.
