7:05 am
the nation's water treatment facilities, power plants, gas pipelines. all the i thithings you need at to function have been targeted. in many cases, hacked. government investigators discovered hackers from overseas penetrated computer systems serving some of the most important utilities. planting software they have given the ominous name black energy. abc news learned this malicious software was put inside the computer systems years ago, but only recently discovered. it's not been activated. but in theory if it was, it could allow a hacker to shut down a generator, open flood valves at a water treatment plant or turn off a pipeline. warnings that owners and operators to look for signs of compromise and report any suspected intrusion immediately. hackers, possibly sponsored by the russian government, are the prime suspects. >> you just issued a critical
7:06 am
alert. the entire network went down. >> reporter: if you think this is fiction something out of a movie, take a look at this test. homeland researchers hacking into a generator caused it to self-destruct. screws are popping out. sources have been warning me for quite some time we're in a new day where hackers can affect our lives from thousands of miles away. they are now hitting very close to home. robin. >> they are, thank you. now to the firestorm over who killed osama bin laden. the former navy s.e.a.l. who says he fired the shot coming forward, breaking the elite group's code of silence. but he's not the only one claiming credit. martha raddatz is joining us from washington with the story. >> reporter: good morning. what navy s.e.a.l.s do is legendary. but how missions are carried out and who is part of the team is supposed to be kept quiet. that high-risk, high-voltage bin
7:07 am

7:08 am
pseudonym. >> we both engaged him several more times. >> reporter: public pronouncements like this earning the wrath of the commanders who wrote a letter to the special options community, we do not abide willful or selfish disregard for our core values if return for public notoriety and financial gain. but for one of the s.e.a.l.s, he says the government is hypocritical. >> how many former secretaries of defense have written books? former generals? how many formal special operations commanders have written books? i'm a nobody, right. >> reporter: there are still many members of the team who have not spoken. he says he did so spontaneously after meeting the families of the victims of 9/11. he then assumed many people knew who he was and it would leak. now to medical news. important alert about penicillin. most who think they are allergic are not.
7:09 am

7:10 am
they dwevelop a rash, but it's from a virus. >> but there's a caveat. >> you think i'm one of the 90% who was told they're not allergic. don't assume that. there was one person in the study who was skin tested and given a drug in the allergists office, they had a reaction. make sure they are testing you and doing it safely. >> thanks very much. now to amy with the other top stories. >> good morning, everyone. and new details about the massive recall of air bags that could explode and send pieces of metal flying into your car. "the new york times" says that takata had secret tests in 2014 and uncovered the potential danger. instead of reporting the concern, it ordered evidence of the testing to be destroyed. the company has not yet commented on the times report. nearly 8 million cars have been recalled because of those air bags. and overnight honda added more cars to the recall list.

7:17 am
it is advertising. >> reporter: so the message to theaters, tease us, excite us, just don't spoil it for us. what do you do here? the very thing that's meant to get you in and watch the movie is the one thing that's turning people off and making them not enjoy the movie as much. >> i love the trailers. >> me too. >> but it turns people off. in this business, we pay attention to the study. they get tired of the way we tease people. especially the weather followings with the biggest storm in history is on the way. >> i'm in the business of saving lives here. people need to be prepared. >> see what i mean? it's a tricky thing. people are starting to figure it out. >> how many game of the centuries do we have? this is the game of the century. >> there's one tomorrow with lebron, i believe. >> that's true. thank you so much, t.j. now to the rain and snow clearing out of the northeast. ginger is in homestead, florida, has the latest for us. >> hey, good morning, everybody. just a stunning morning and a

7:32 am
p.i.n. number, hoping it would lead police to her, and it did. barnes was captured on surveillance video using the atm card at a bank. the car was fitted with a gps device like this one, that allows auto dealers to keep tabs on those with poor credit. authorities using it to find barnes in this mall parking lot. on agent's approach, we learned barnes climbed from the backseat to the front, trying to flee. that's when agents surrounded the car and moved in, rescuing carlesha. >> she was in a state of shock and hysteria. >> reporter: when the surveillance images were released, police in virginia recognized barnes as their prime suspect in another kidnapping. now the preacher's son seen here for the first time since his arrest is in virginia, moved overnight to face charges in the other kidnapping. including attempted capital murder in connection with a 16-year-old girl he allegedly kidnapped and tortured last month before she managed to escape. he has a 2005 conviction related to an attack on his estranged wife.

7:34 am
>> and there are real questions about the virginia case. on october 3rd, they take a dna sample. you don't get the match until october 28th. that's not anyone's fault, but we need that's a problem with the system. we need a better system to take less than three weeks to get back that kind of result. it took that long to figure out this is the guy. we have him in our system. number two, on october 28th, when they are able to identify him, why wasn't there an all-out bulletin put out? saying, we need to find this guy. now, the authorities may say, we didn't want to tip him off. we may have answers to that, but those are two really important questions i think need to be asked. >> and other people know that a used car dealer who sold a car could turn on the gps. >> it's amazing. but it sounds like the authorities knew that was a real possibility, people with bad credit, they often do it, because they have payments to make overtime. and they say, well, bad credit here, i'm worried we're going to need to repossess the car. the authorities knew about that, asked the specific question of the used car dealer so that they
7:35 am
could then flip this on and find him within minutes. >> all came together. >> amazing story the way they pieced it together. >> when you think about the team effort you guys are talking about. good old-fashioned police work, social media, and carlesha, having the sense to, hey, here's my atm and here's my p.i.n., knowing they would be able to track it. and answer to a lot of prayers. >> absolutely. >> thanks. now to the terrifying carjacking caught on tape. a tv cameraman who found himself in the middle of a dramatic police standoff with a crazed gunman. abc's linzie janis has that story for us. >> reporter: take a look at the terrifying incident where a man covering the news actually becomes the news. it all started with cameraman peter steer was sent out to cover a possible shooting at a local residence. on his way there, this stranger on a motorcycle flagged him down.

>> i had done extremely bad things. >> reporter: he told the mysterious bearded man he didn't have time to chat, he was on the way to cover a shooting. but his new pal, jordie brooks had news, telling him i'm the shooter you're looking for and handing him his weapon. he then offered an emotional confession to his crime, shooting a woman. steer caught it all on his camera while calling police. >> this is channel 7. i have the shooter with me. he's given himself up to me. >> reporter: but suddenly he shows his true colors, hijacking the car, using the very gun he had initially handed over to the cameraman. unfortunately for jordie, he's a better story teller than driver. watch as he crashes into a sign and then a gas tank at a local service station, causing a gas leak, where he is finally apprehended by cops. jordie's been charged with attempted murder while steer is ready for a day off.
