US probes alleged hacking by Indian Govt spy unit
The US authorities are investigating allegations that an Indian government spy unit hacked into emails of an official US commission that monitors economic and security relations between the United States and China, including cyber-security issues.
The request for an investigation came after hackers posted on the Internet what purports to be an Indian military intelligence document on cyber-spying, which discusses plans to target the commission - apparently using technical know-how provided by Western mobile phone manufacturers.
Appended to the document are transcripts of what are said to be email exchanges among commission members. "We are aware of these reports and have contacted relevant authorities to investigate the matter. We are unable to make further comments at this time," said Jonathan Weston, a spokesman for the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission.
