@HindolSengupta #Kudankulam faced a low level avoidable Malware attack scare on one of its admin systems. To my understanding a lot of Indians dont understand the risks involved in surfing the net, so I build this thread on #CyberAttack and how to avoid them.
@HindolSengupta This is written as simply as possible, keeping Indian parents in mind.

1. 𝐏𝐚𝐬𝐬𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐝 𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐚𝐜𝐤 - Hackers steal passwords by trial & error, or calculated guess.
Remedy - Pick one strong 10+ digit Alphanumeric password. Keep switching CAPS, zeroes and O's.

(1/10)
@HindolSengupta Example - Pick your old car's number. Keep switching cases. Replace zero with O and vice versa.

2. 𝐄𝐚𝐯𝐞𝐬𝐝𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐠 - Hacker intrudes a client-server connection over the internet to spy on the traffic, in order to get relevant information.

Remedy - Firewalls.

#India's Kudankulam #Nuclear Power Plant has been hit by #cyberattack. Authorities were already alerted of the threat months in advance. The power plant project built in collaboration with #Russia has been a target of foreign players since its inception.

The second 1,000 MW #nuclear power unit at #Kudankulam, owned by the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) stopped power generation on Saturday 19th October, owing to “SG level low”.

More than a month before the unit stopped operating, NCSC was notified of intrusion of their systems by #cyber threat intelligence analyst @RungRage. The alert was generated on investigation by #cybersecurity firm #Kaspersky into spy tools dubbed #DTrack. greatgameindia.com/kudankulam-nuc…

10. United States decided to label #IRGC terrorists. But who are the real terrorists? Who created, trained, armed & financed the worst terrorist groups in the world?

#Hypocrites #DoubleStandards #Liars #Warlords #USRealTerrorists
Wrong US policies in the Middle East. Sanctions against Iran. Sanctions used by the USA as a war weapon🤨👇🏼

So, wanna hear some stuff?
You don’t but, possibly - I guess - should.
I'm torn between my desire to inform and desire not to scare the whatsis out of anyone.
I'll just go finish my morning cup of tea now...
