Indo-China War : Chinese Hackers Targeted India’s Power Sector

Amid heightened border tension between India and China, a Chinese government-linked group of hackers targeted India’s critical power grid system through malware, a US company said in its study, raising suspicion whether last year’s massive power outage in Mumbai was a result of online intrusion.

The activity was identified through a combination of large-scale automated network traffic analytics and expert analysis. There was no immediate response from the Indian Government on the study by the US company. Since early 2020, Recorded Future’s Insikt Group observed a large increase in suspected targeted intrusion activity against Indian organizations from the Chinese state-sponsored group.

While the government has not contacted Recorded Future since the New York Times published its report, according to Ms. Mattingly, the company had been in touch with the government prior to the report’s publication.
