In a startling volley of allegations, India has been accused of being guilty of hacking a U.S commission's e-mail communications, which primarily dealt with the economic and security relations between U.S and China. Reports confirm that hackers from an Indian government spy unit managed to post on the Internet, what is being understood be an Indian military intelligence document on cyber-spying. The document, reportedly discussed at length on ways to target the U.S – China commission aided with the expertise lent by western mobile phone manufacturers. The document, reportedly, also included transcripts of the emails exchanged between members of the commission.
Investigations are on
While investigations to verify the report are still on, members of the commission have shockingly revealed that the emails are genuine. A spokesperson for the commission stated that, “We are aware of these reports and have contacted relevant authorities to investigate the matter. We are unable to make further comments at this time.“
