China is not taking the name of reform. Now a big conspiracy hatched against India by its hackers has been exposed. China has targeted India’s power sector as part of its cyber espionage campaign, according to a report released on Wednesday by intelligence firm Recorded Futures Inc.

Focus on 7 load dispatch centers

State-sponsored Chinese hackers focused on at least seven load-dispatch centers in northern India, according to a Bloomberg-based Recorded Future report. These centers are intended to conduct real-time operations for grid control and power supply in areas near the India-China border and Ladakh.

The United States has acknowledged that hackers have links to China

One of the load dispatch centers has already been attacked by another hacking group, RedEcho. Recorded Future says that these hackers belong to a large hacking group. The United States also believes that the hacking group has direct links to the Chinese government. According to the report, long-term attacks on Indian power grids by hacking groups affiliated with the Chinese government have resulted in limited economic espionage or conventional intelligence gathering.

According to the firm, it has gathered information about critical infrastructure. It can be used in future also. Besides the power sector, Chinese hackers have also targeted India’s national emergency response system and a subsidiary of a multinational logistics company. The name of the hacking group is TAG-38. The group has used a dangerous software called Shadowpad to carry out their plans. Let us tell you that the wires of this software are already connected with the Chinese army.
