Hackers invade servers of Indian embassy in Paris:
Anonymous cyber hackers allegedly invaded the servers of the Indian embassy office in Paris and walked away with loads of official documents last month. The hackers later posted all the files, including a proposal to rope in Airbus for the indigenous manufacturing of civilian aircraft and visits of senior bureaucrats, ministers and intelligence officials to France, on a website to show how vulnerable the servers are.
The hacker on the post claimed these files were stored on computers within the ministry of external affairs’ servers worldwide.
The government agencies have now launched an investigating into the matter.
“No highly sensitive document seems to have been stolen but if the hackers have been able to breach the secure servers, it is a matter of serious concern. We have alerted the various government departments. We are also investigating the origin of attack and how these documents found their way into the public domain,” a source said.
The Indian embassy in Paris said it is not aware of such incident and would not like to comment on it.
Dr Gulshan Rai, director general of the Indian computer emergency response team (CERT-In), could not be reached for his comments despite several attempts to contact him. CERT-In is the national nodal agency for cyber security related incidents.
The post also claims successful infiltration of servers of the Indian embassies in Paris, Canberra and New Delhi. Documents of the United States chamber of commerce (USCC) and the national foreign trade council (NFTC) have also been hacked and released in the public domain.
Several letters and agenda items of the USCC towards Chinese trade are part of the stolen documents.
Hackers have also got their hands on the document of the high power committee on national civil aircraft development, led by G. Madhavan Nair, where in one of his letter to the Indian embassy in Paris he is indicating possible collaboration with the M/S Airbus industries to develop indigenous civilian aircraft.
More than 400 MB data has details of official deputation and ministerial visits to France. France-based Indian companies meeting in the Paris embassy and concerns raised by them are also part of the files. Some of these documents are as latest as the second week of November, 2011.
Earlier, the Europe-based threat to Indian establishment was exposed when Italian cyber police allegedly infiltrated computers of the Indian embassy in Moscow and stole hundreds of document in 2009-2010.
The matter came to light only in August this year after a hackers group, ANTI SEC, infiltrated the Italian cyber police computers and stole the data from their computers and published it on the web.
Though the Indian government had then issued a clarification stating no sensitive information was leaked from its embassy in Moscow, it admitted some unclassified data may have come out from other sources.
