China does not leave any chance of infiltration in India whether it is infiltration through LAC or cyber attack. The latest case is of Ladakh where Chinese hackers have targeted Indian power stations. This information has been given in a report by private intelligence firm Recorded Future in which it is said that in recent months, Chinese hackers have targeted at least seven Indian State Load Despatch Centres.
According to the reports, through these centres, the work of grid control and power supply is done in the areas of Ladakh. According to the report, Chinese hackers have been trying to target the load dispatch centre for a long time. The purpose of Chinese hackers behind this can be to hack SLDC and blackout in the area.
According to the report by private intelligence firm Recorded Future, a hacking group named TAG-38 is engaged in hacking through ShadowPad software. It has also been said in the report that in the last 18 months, State and Regional Load Despatch Centres in India were first targeted by Red Echo. After this, now China is engaged in cyber-attacks through Tag-38. It has been told in the report that China has started trying to gather intelligence through hackers.
It is worth noting that the Chinese hackers aim to blackout the SLDC located in Ladakh by hacking. However, this is not the first time that Chinese trend hackers are doing such an act. Even before this, efforts have been made by China to spread darkness in India. Earlier in the year 2020 also there was a 12-hour blackout in Mumbai. In that blackout, there was information about being Chinese hackers.
