Project: Baton Rouge Wastewater Pump Station SCADA System (Feb. 15th, 2006)

01/18/2007


We are still awaiting a written recommendation from the data center regarding how best to avoid a repeat of the problem described last week of an unauthorized party causing excessive bandwidth use and running up our fees. It appears this was an attempt by the third party to use our server as a pass-thru and conceal their identity. There was no evidence of any attempts to access data within any of the applications on the server, which are also password protected. Although this was the secondary backup server and not active at the time, it doesn't appear this third-party activity would have had any affect on the ability of the system to perform the intended function for the client. The data center's preliminary recommendation is to generally tighten up our firewall configuration.
