    So you think our Nuclear program got compromised by CIA ? How come they didnt detect the 1999 test then ?

    CIA is keeping a very close eye on our Nuclear program albeit for different reasons though. Their current job is to dissuade the Indian Govt. from buying nuclear reactors from France and Russia and procure them solely from the US. In this endeavour they are promoting NGO's to step up protests in those areas where non US nuclear power plants are coming up . The PM had also voiced a similar opinion recently.

    http://www.thehindu.com/news/national/article2924905.ece

    Also, Wikileaks had reported based on cables sent between US embassay staff based in India and Pakistan that Pakistan had more nuclear warheads at it's disposal than India .

    When Narashimha Rao was PM he had planned to carry out the Nuclear tests back in 1991, however a mole in his office informed the CIA and the US administration was able to exert enough pressure on Rao which discouraged him from carrying out the tests

    CIA satellites did detect the 1999 tests . Just that CIA/ MI6 didn't have prior information about the tests. The reason being apart from the PM, Chief of Army and A P J Abdul Kalam no one knew about the Gov't decision to carry out the tests . The decision was carried out at very short notice . Had they lingered , CIA would have been informed.

    Also do you feel RAW is compromised by CIA presently ?

    Outlook magazine had carried out a detailed investigative report where they had questioned serious lapses on the part of the incumbent RAW chief .

    http://www.outlookindia.com/article.aspx?264027

    The article raises serious questions about the nature of his visits to the US . The RAW chief himself has been unable to give a suitable clarification till date .

    Seems like Russian Intelligence are also infected by CIA/Western Intelligence

    link

    Nuclear team down


    Last year in another unsolved crash, a key Russian scientist was killed. On the night of June 20, 2011 a Tupolev-134 jetliner with 43 passengers and a crew of nine took off from Moscow for Petrozavodsk, about 950 km to the north. Midway through the flight, the plane lost altitude and crashed onto a highway in the northern republic of Karelia.

    The passengers killed included Sergei Ryzhov, who was the chief designer of the light water nuclear reactors built by Russia in various countries, including Kudankulam in India. In fact, the entire leadership of the reactor design unit of Russia’s state nuclear corporation was wiped out.

    If you connect the dots you’ll find the same set of nations as in the supersonic competition – Russians, Americans and the French – who are today scrambling for India’s multi-billion dollar nuclear power industry.

    Homi Bhabha was widely regarded as the "Father of India's Atomic Energy Programme" . He died under mysterious circumstances . The Air India Flight 101 that he was travelling in crashed in Mont Blanc in Jan 1966.It was widely believed then that the CIA had carried out this sabotage .

    http://news.in.msn.com/gallery.aspx?cp-documentid=3433120&page=1

    Coming to Rakesh Krishnan Simha's article I have always admired his knowledge though at times he has gone overboard ( for example see below link )

    http://indrus.in/articles/2012/05/21/living_in_a_world_without_the_west_15799.html

    That said , recently on the aftermath of the assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist in Tehran by Israeli agents , Simha had predicted that Iran will strike back . And within a few months Iranian agents targetted an Israeli diplomat in New Delhi .

    The west especially the US has vested interest to ensure that India always remains an energy deficient country . And the best way to ensure that is to stop / slow down India's civil nuclear program so as to make India dependent on gas supplies from the Middle East . With the west becoming less dependent on Mid Eastern oil resources Western oil companies as well as defense contractors are suffering . The Mid East spends anywhere between 5% to 10 % of it's GDP in defense . With the petro dollar they purchase weapons in huge numbers from the West. With Iran , India had the advantage of paying in Rupees for the gas imported . We do not get the same benefit when we import from Saudi Arabia or Iraq. So , as the price of gas goes up , we pay more ( in dollars ) and as we pay more ( in dollars ) the value of the Rupee suffers greatly . This is what explains the sharp fall in the value of the Rupee . Eventually , we will have such a huge current account deficit that we will also fall into a debt trap like Europe .It is in this light that we need to understand as to why the West wants to slow down India's nuclear program.

    About western design to penetrate Russian intelligence , efforts have always been made to penetrate Russia's energy , space and defense sector . However Russian counter intelligence have ensured that most of the efforts of CIA , MI6 and Chinese Intelligence fail . India , on the other hand is more susceptible to foreign espionage primarily because of a bureaucracy and political class that can easily be bribed and coerced . However, foreign intelligence agencies are now making efforts to tap the large Russian diaspora in the US and UK to penetrate the above mentioned sectors in Russia . Similar efforts with the Indian diaspora in the recent past have been successful .

    This looks to be true, if it is the ShadowBrokers hacker group has just dropped a cyberbomb on the US Intel network. Amongst others the Chinese will not be amused at the confirmation of much that they probably already knew. Goodness knows how this will play out.

    I have linked to ZH's take on the subject as it seems to be a good consolidation of the current information.

    CIA/Western Intelligence Empty Take Action - More NSA tried and tested hacking gifts leaked

    Post  JohninMK on Sat Apr 15, 2017 12:41 am

    You may or may not have noticed that increasing amounts of the hacking tools used by the US's NSA that were stolen last year are being let out into the wild. With a new bunch just released targetting Windows users of all types.

    If you are reading this then it is probable you have a computer system. I am no network or hacking expert but I would say that the risk to our systems has just increased and it would pay us to take some kind of protective action even if we ourselves think we are too small to matter to anyone. Most if not all of us will have these activities in place but it might be worthwhile to do an update.

    Take a backup of your system with Ghost or similar, store it offline. Copy all your data files, store it offline. Consider using Cloud storage. Turn your Internet gateway off when not in use. At least you will have something hopefully safe that you can go back to in emergency.

    Treat anything on your system as potentially suspect from now on. The online computer world via the Internet is changing fast and not for the better, thanks to the US Government.

    If reading this does not give you concern talk to someone who understands the ramifications. As a commentator in the thread linked to below said "there will be many network teams around the world who have just had their Easter holidays cancelled". They will be working against the clock to stop the hackers now.

    An interesting analysis of the security problems in NSA. Probably causing the recent banning of Kaspersky. This is some of it.

    In 2013, an NSA contractor named Edward Snowden walked out of the agency's building in Oahu, Hawaii, carrying a USB drive full of thousands of top-secret documents. Last year, a 53-year-old Booz Allen contractor for the NSA named Hal Martin was arrested last year for taking 50 terabytes out of the agency over a period as long two decades. And Thursday, the Wall Street Journal reported that in 2015, a third contract employee of the NSA in as many years took home a trove of classified materials that included both software code and other information that the agency uses in its offensive hacking operations, as well as details of how it protects US systems from hacker adversaries.

    That classified data, which wasn't authorized to be removed from the perimeter of the facility where that contractor worked, was then stolen from the contractor's home computer by Russian spies, who exploited the unnamed employee's installation of antivirus software from Kaspersky, a Russian company. And while that revelation has raised yet another round of serious concerns and unanswered questions about Kremlin spying and the role of Kaspersky's widely used commercial software, it also points to a more fundamental security problem for the NSA: The own-goals it has committed, as a series of its paid employees spill some of its most sensitive secrets—including its intensely guarded and dangerous hacking techniques.

    Why is the CIA so successful at starting revolution and instability in foreign countries? Is it that Third world countries lack good counterintelligence to counter CIA manipulations? Moreover, does Russia have good counterintelligence to prevent the CIA from doing the same thing?
