#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…

Official statement from Kudankulam Project denying possibility of a #CyberAttack since 'Control Systems are standalone & outside internet". However, this is a false assertion which was exposed for the entire world when #Iranian #Nuclear plant was targeted by Mossad via #Stuxnet

-Less browser, no SMB, zips file list locally
-Same IPs in strings, no apparent connectivity check
-Zip pw: dkwero38oerA^t@# (Op Troy DPRK)

Hard to know what the local IPs are (thus, if it's related)

For those including KNPP officials who claim that "systems not connected to Internet cannot be attacked", heres a history lesson. Study what happened when Israeli intelligence targeted Iranian Nuclear facility using stolen NSA codes #Stuxnet. Study & learn for sake of our #NatSec
