Cyberwar risk: Utilities fail to patch critical security vulnerabilities often enough

BitSight observed that "nearly 5% of utilities are still exposed" to the BlueKeep vulnerability, noting that "This vulnerability, if exploited by an external attacker, will lead to full system compromise, without requiring any form of authentication or user interaction. According to BitSight research, the electric utilities sector is the fourth worst performing sector when it comes to patching this critical vulnerability."
