Sadly unsurprising

I started my career in building automation, and this is depressingly unsurprising news. We built stuff in the 1980s that would be hard-wired into buildings, expecting it to last as long as the buildings did, with no reason to expect that there would ever be a connection to the system from outside the physical wiring in the buildings.

And apparently, the industry is still architecting systems under the same assumptions.
