First a few FAQs:

  1. I prefer that people email in their answers but a link to a blog post works as well. But I probably wont see them if you post it on social media sites like Facebook or G+. 
  2. I won't be posting anything about the answers submitted, to include what the "right" answer is, this isn't trivia, this project is geared towards challenging you to try something out you may not have tried, or learn something you might not have tried to learn, I'm only here to push you further once you have and keep it rolling week by week once you do.
This weeks question is:

A number of SCADA and ICS systems use a protocol named "MODBUS" what are some vulnerabilities that are in or involved this protocol? What sort of systems were they attached to? What did they control? Why did the vulnerabilities occur? What does SCADA stand for? What does ICS stand for? Dive as deep as you want on this.

Groupon Certifications

Since this blog is about challenges and helping people learn/break into the IT Security field (InfoSec) thought this was something worth posting:

$99 for a certification bundle (CompTIA Security+, A+, and Network+), as far as I can tell, this is only training to help prep for the certifications. I don't know anything about the company, but the demo video seems pretty lively.

Tomorrow is Valentines and the 17th is a Holiday, so this question comes a little early:
