CSIRO warns of smart meter hacking risk

The CSIRO has announced that smart meters and smart grids could be vulnerable to hackers and cyber attacks if electricity organisations don't take action to improve the security of their electronic systems.
Hackers could potentially take control of smart meters and turn off power supplies to homes. It could potentially occur during periods of peak demand, such as heatwaves, where entire cities could be blacked out.
