"Robust security controls are in place across the end to end smart metering system and all devices must be independently assessed by an expert security organisation, irrespective of their country of origin."Translation: we will do nothing about this until it is too late.As bad as all this seems, it's actually worse. Rubin is almost certainly not the first person to discover these vulnerabilities, but as we learned during the US Copyright Office's 2015 proceedings on the DMCA, security researchers who uncover these security bugs are routinely silenced by their in-house counsel, because laws like Section 1201 of the DMCA -- and EU laws that implement Article 6 of the EUCD -- allow companies to sue (and even jail) anyone who reveals a flaw in their digital locks.
