China: The Singapore based cyber-security firm Cyfirma warned that China is plotting a “terrorist cyber-attack” against India. The primary target of these attacks is purported to be media services in India. There are also claims that Chinese state-sponsored attackers are attempting to plant false news stories in an attempt to “change the narrative” about what is taking place between the two nations. Reports from Cyfirma indicate that discussions on Chinese hacking forums are increasing in relation to the tensions between India and China. Many of the conversations are tied to a desire to “teach India a lesson” with the frustration by many being that “this is one nation that doesn’t listen to us.” According to Cyfirma, targets have been discussed and they have seen “that IoCs (Indicators of Compromise) were shared” leading them to believe that an attack is imminent.
