I am sure this type of thing has been going on for a long time, either because governments (TLA's) tell them to or just because they are stupid. The problem with government backdoors is they sound good on paper, but they also introduce vulnerabilities that the "bad guys" can also take advantage of. The guy who discovered this flaw basically did it from his basement. Do we want to trust "mission critical" systems for the power grid that some guy from his basement can hack?
