    Welcome

    Unfotunately...

    Indian civil servants are not savvy enough to leave USB keys / laptops on trains. Hence all this effort to infiltrate networks.

    I, for one, welcome our Network Infiltrating, espionaging, shadowy overlords.

    Bah!

    First my mortgage bank, then my wife's health insurance company, and now I'm going to get a "Sorry, we've been hacked. Have a year's worth of credit monitoring on us" letter from the Dalai Lama?

    Intolerable!

    No one else would care about Indian secrets. Well, except Pakistan.
