INCIDENT: India Nuke Hit By Malware

A day after officials at Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant (KKNPP) in Tamil Nadu, India, denied a cyberattack on its systems, the Nuclear Power Corporation of India Limited (NPCIL), the administrative governing body for nuclear power plants in the country, said “malware” was in one of their systems.
The NPCIL said Wednesday only an administrative system was infected by malware and the plant’s control systems were not affected. But others are saying there was domain controller level access achieved and mission critical targets hit.
