Overview Edit

"[A] 2010 report from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) revealed that Smart Meters in Puerto Rico have been hacked by exploiting a vulnerability in an optical computer access port in the meter used for maintenance. The meter memory could be modified to reduce the electricity use reported by the meter, which enabled electricity theft."[1]
