Quote:A nuclear reactor at South Korea's Younggwang Nuclear Power Plant automatically shut down Monday after its reactor protection system gave warning signals, plant operators said.

The Reactor-6 at the Younggwang plant, located some 330 kilometers southwest of Seoul, was shut down at 2:57 p.m., according to an official from the state-run Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power Co., Ltd.

"An investigation is currently underway to confirm the exact cause of the automatic shutdown of the reactor," the official told Yonhap News Agency, adding there was no danger of a radiation leak from the reactor.

There's been a lot of nasty viruses going around hitting nuclear power plants, the latest being the 'thunderstruck' virus.

I read about that the other day, this cyber warfare on nuke plants is a pretty stupid idea, considering it's something that affects us all.

Makes 2 of us.


The newest Finnish one under construction keeps postponing its completion deadline.
I haven't dug too deep in the whole business, but it has looked fishy since the start.
Not the sort of people you would like to give you a sloppy impression right from the
