Written by: Staff

Toronto, Mar 29: An internet research group on Saturday, Mar 28 claimed that a China-based cyber spy network hacked many government and private systems in nearly 103 nations, including those of Indian embassies and the Dalai Lama.

A ten month research carried out by Information Warfare Monitor (IWM) on cyber spy activities, specially those emanating from China shows that the hacked systems include the systems of Indian embassies and offices of Dalai Lama.

IWM also said that the hackers installed a software called 'malware' on the hacked system to steal important and sensitive documents, including those from the Dalai Lama's offices. The hackers gained access to more than 1,200 computers of foreign ministries of many nations, including Bhutan, Bangladesh, Latvia, Indonesia, Iran and Philippines. The agency started research after the Tibetan exiles accused China of cyber spying.
