Chinese malware constantly focussing their attack on India; India to build a better defence

Chinese malware constantly focussing their attack on India

After facing a lot of attack from the Chinese hackers, India has finally decided to defend and strike back at these Chinese cyber warriors.

For the last few years, India has been witnessing the overflow of Chinese malwares into the Indian economy, damaging the growth. They even took down the control systems that have been managing the electric system in India.

As we discussed in our previous blogs, Mumbai power outrage was one among them. Approximately they have targeted around 40 power grid systems in India.

The Union Power Ministry claims that all these attacks were the result of the Galwan Valley Clash where the Indian and Chinese soldiers fought each other, losing the lives of many Chinese soldiers. After the incident, around 40,300 cyber-attacks were found to hit India from Chengdu, the Sichuan province of China. They planned various attacks on sectors like infrastructure, banking and information technology.

These cyber hackers has also targeted servers of various organizations and caused data breach. These included government institutions like Prime Minister’s office, ministries of home and external affairs, Defence Research and Development Organization and BSNL.

Unfortunately, 30 fighter jets of India was destroyed and drowned due to cyber-attacks from China.

When China realized that, India could not be defeated through mortal combat they decided to launch cyber war. Most of the cyber groups are hacked by the Chinese government. They began to target economic foundations that brought financial loss to the government as well as the people.

During the earlier days, in 2004, the main aim of the Chinese military is to succeed in wars through informations. This did enhance the war fighting potential of the armed forces. It was only after 2015, China realized their weakness in physical combat and decided to launch cyber wars.

As India is becoming a digitalized country, most of the records are being converted to digital format. Due to this we are producing a large amount of digital data. Access to these data can make them powerful. In the run for digitalized India, we cared little of the cyber security for these datas. Are the boundaries strong and safe? We, the common people can only hope that the government and authorized officials are putting their maximum efforts to protect our data. We believe to be safe in their hands.

According to statistics, 47% of Indian business system runs under legacy systems. These are the major target for the hackers. The cyber security officials has reported that till now, there has been 210% increase in cyber-attacks against the Indian corporates and 250% increase in the hacks against government agencies. They included server breaches, exposed databases etc. This must end and the hole must be patched soon.

One of the drawbacks of digitalization is that most of the digitalised data are stored in Chinese made hardwares which have an extension towards China. We cannot predict that these hardwares are totally safe and does not contain any backdoors to leak informations. Replacing Chinese equipments would be a huddle but we are planning to wipe out every Chinese made product used for data collection and storage.

This should be taken into consideration urgently. While developing a better security strategy we must also focus in developing software that helps us to strike back with more power.

How can you prevent Chinese malware?

  • Install an anti-virus and anti-spyware software, which can detect all kinds of threats and block them.
  • Ensure secure authentication methods.
  • Never allow administrators account access to everyone. Limit the number of people accessing them.
  • Always keep the Operating System and software’s updated.
  • Implement a firewall.
