web - "Smartmeter" in Großbritannien benutzen alle den gleichen Schlüssel zum Verschlüsseln und die Energienetzbetreiber können "Remote" deinen Strom abschalten

Smartmeter bringen wirklich nur Vorteile für den Endkunden und zeigen die Stärke der "magischen Hand des Marktes".

Die gute Nachricht: Die Smartmeter für Großbritannien sind verschlüsselt.

Die schlechte Nachricht: alle 53 Milliionen Smartmeter benutzen den selben Schlüssel.

Ach naja, denkt ihr euch jetzt vielleicht, sind ja nur Smartmeter, dann kann man halt gucken, was der Nachbar so verheizt. Nicht nur!
The security flaws would have been particularly catastrophic as the UK's 'Rolls Royce' (i.e. unnecessarily expensive) smart metering system doesn't just automate meter reading. It enables power companies to engage in power management and even to cut people off remotely if they haven't paid their bills.

Fuck, yeah!
