Malware attack that crippled Mumbai's power system came from China, claims infosec intel outfit Recorded Future


Indian grid run by govt

Most of Indias powergrids are govt run entities. That means job reservations and least qualified people in dangerous high profile jobs. Most of the grid is physical and mechanical devices that are not modernized and unconnected to the internet. Mumbai and some other few States have privatised the grid and no longer employ ancient and unqualified techs. Hence these modern grids are truly vulnerable and on the internet. I never thought I would be supporting ancient tech and unqualified workers but looks to be better than getting fleeced by private corpos and Chinese haxxors
