    DEVELOPER OF 'GOOD ENOUGH' SOFTWARE Microsoft has perhaps become entangled in BP's Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe thanks to an oil rig worker's claim that a computer used to monitor Transocean's Deepwater Horizon drilling platform crashed with a blue screen of death (BSOD).

    Michael Williams, the chief electronics technician on the Deepwater Horizon rig survived the explosion that killed 11 and dumped millions of gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico by jumping into the ocean. Williams testified that before the explosion he saw a computer that he claims was used for monitoring drilling operations frozen with a BSOD.

    Removing SCADA worm could disrupt power plants

    Siemens has made a program available for detecting and disinfecting malware attacking its software used to control power grids, gas refineries, and factories but warned customers who use it could disrupt sensitive plant operations.

    The Munich-based engineering company on Thursday began distributing Sysclean, a malware scanner made by Trend Micro. It has been updated to remove Stuxnet, a worm that spreads by exploiting two separate vulnerabilities in Siemens's SCADA, or supervisory control and data acquisition, software and every supported version of Microsoft Windows.

    Areva Inc. - a Paris-based company that serves nuclear, wind, and fossil-fuel power companies - is warning customers to upgrade a key piece of energy management software following the discovery of security bugs that leaves it vulnerable to hijacking.

    Citect's move followed last week's release of proof-of-concept code that exploited a vulnerability in CitectSCADA, which is used to manage industrial control mechanisms known as SCADA (Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) systems. The bug meant systems that relied on the software could potentially be exposed to tampering by disgruntled employees or terrorists

    Gasoline refineries, manufacturing plants and other industrial facilities that rely on computerized control systems could be vulnerable to a security flaw in a popular piece of software that in some cases allows attackers to remotely take control of critical operations and equipment.
