India Bolsters Their Cyber Security To Prevent Stuxnet-Like Attacks

JohnBert writes "India is beefing up their cyber security capabilities to protect their national infrastructure from a Stuxnet-like attack. Prime minister, Manmohan Singh, is finalizing plans to give the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) and National Technical Research Organization (NTRO) the authorization to commit undisclosed offensive operations. Although not deliberate and no revealed serious damage was caused, India has already been hit by Stuxnet. This added initiative will increase security for the country that has been criticized in the past for having slow responses to DoS and web defacement attacks."

Just because a politician wants something doesn't mean that something gonna bear fruits

Just because an Indian politician decides that India will block all Stuxnet-like worm, it does not mean India will automagically be immuned to Stuxnet or its equivalent / variants
