A very important topic these days.  The US Governmental has a Control Systems Security Program that posts vulnerabilities to software and hardware typically used in industrial automation.  These usually include general descriptions of the security issue and links to the vendor for more detailed information on how to implement workarounds of patches for the problem.

Very good website.

Also from DOE
