Did The Stuxnet Worm Kill India’s INSAT-4B Satellite?

On July 7, 2010, a power glitch in the solar panels of India’s INSAT-4B satellite resulted in 12 of its 24 transponders shutting down. As a result, an estimated 70% of India’s Direct-To-Home (DTH) companies’ customers were without service. India’s DTH operators include Sun TV and state-run Doordarshan and data services of Tata VSNL.

INSAT-4B was put into orbit in March, 2007 by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), which conducts research and develops space technology for the government of India. It is also the agency which controls and monitors India’s satellites and space vehicles while they are operational.
