Chinese army hackers attack India

A REPORT ON TECHGOSS claimed that a unit of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has systematically attacked Indian websites as part of a strategy by China to fight future wars.

Sathya Prasad claimed that the Chinese hackers are based in Guangdong province and use .doc and .pdf files containing trojans to grab information from sites.

Government and corporations have already come under attack, and the article claims the PLA performed an “Informaticised Peoples Warfare Network Simulation Exercise” to simulate cyberwar against India, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea.
