Nuke plant has been hacked, says Atomic Energy Agency director
The director of the International Atomic Energy Agency has said he’s aware of a successful hack of a nuclear power plant. And as if that isn’t bad enough, he also knows of an attempt to steal enriched uranium.
Yukiya Amano is the agency’s director and on Monday visited Germany for meetings, where a Reuters correspondent heard him say an attack on a power plant three or four years ago “caused some problems” and saw the facility “take some precautionary measures.”
The plant did not need to shut down.
