Indian officials acknowledged on October 30th that a cyberattack occurred at the countrys Kudankulam nuclear power plant.

Kyseinen tietokanta on markkina- ja luottotietoyhtiö Bisnoden yhteystieto- ja henkilömarkkinointirekisteri..

Hänen mukaansa järjestelmä on nyt suljettu, ja koodia korjataan parhaillaan.
