Security firm FireEye revealed an intense activity of hackers based in China particularly interested in entities and organization linked to the Indian Government as well as in information on Tibetan activists. Collecting intelligence on India remains a key strategic goal for China-based APT groups, and these attacks on India and its neighbouring countries reflect growing interest in its foreign affairs. As per security experts, organizations should redouble their cyber-security efforts and ensure they can prevent, detect and respond to attacks in order to protect themselves. Fire Eye detected the same APT group in April 2015, one month before Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s first visit to China. FireEye has already reported cyber-espionage conducted by other APT groups such as APT30 which targeted aerospace and defense company in India among others.
