Cal-ISO Hacked

Cal-ISO gets hacked and I can't help but giggle at the thought of a couple of 14 year old kids playing black out BINGO with the california power grid.

There's an old Bloom County on this riff. What's his name, Oliver? The black hacker kid. Denying everything ....

Sounds to me like access was gained to the office workstations, though, not the power-grid control computers. Serious, but a bit overblown. "Employees rebooted their computers" implies we're talking desktops here.
