China denied allegations of disrupting Mumbai's power system
Posted: Mar 05, 2021
China is being blamed for sudden power-power in Mumbai last October for several hours, but China has rejected all such reports and called them "highly irresponsible".
Based on a study of 'Recalled Future', a company that looks at internet use by government agencies in the United States, the new york times wrote in an article that China could be at hand in the mumbai power grid's black-out.
The Maharashtra government had set up an investigation committee after power cuts across Mumbai city which has presented its report to the state government on Monday.
The report confirmed the October mumbai black-out that the grid operating system shows the presence of 14 trembiosis programs that destroy the computer program. The mumbai police cyber cell has started further investigation into it.
State Interior Minister Deshmukh, while talking to reporters, said the October power kit had a role in the cyber attack.
China may have entered the system-destroying program suo-grid system, a leading U.S. company says. 'Our investigation has found that some foreign companies have been involved in the case. '
What happened in Mumbai?
On October 13 last year, electricity was missing in Mumbai and its surroundings for several hours. The power shortage had completely paralyzed India's economic hub. Trains closed, online exams were discontinued, mobile services closed, stock exchange remained closed and hospitals had to run with emergency lights.
In some areas, electricity was missing for 12 hours. Officials at the time said that power has been shut down due to technical fault. But an inquiry committee was set up to investigate the incident.
New York Times's R.P.O.
The New York Times reported that four months after the bloody june clash between China and India in the Guwan Valley, a power grid fell in Mumbai, about 15,000 km from Ladakh.
The paper writes that there may be a 'deep ergo' relationship between tension and power kit. 'This could be part of China's action against India's power grid to send a message to India that if it resists a lot along the border, power could be shut down across the country. ‘
"This study shows that system-corrupting Chinese malware had entered India's control system that provides electricity supply systems across the country, " the newspaper wrote, citing a study by Recarded Futures, a company that looks at internet usage through government agencies and elements. The malware was also inserted into a high-quality substation and a coal-run Axb power plant. ‘
The study said that not all Chinese malware was activated at any stage. Recarded Future has not self-reviewed the code for the malware that was entered into the power delivery system across the country. The company had informed Indian authorities about it. But the Indian government has not yet said what they have found in their investigation.
China has strongly responded to the New York Times report and rejected it. A spokesperson for the Chinese embassy in Delhi called the report 'highly irresponsible'.
He said that as a strong supporter of cyber security, China opposes and fights against all kinds of cyber attacks. There is no room for speculation and false stories in the case of cyber attacks. It is highly irresponsible to accuse anyone without any evidence. ‘
Indian authorities are silent following this report by Recarded Future. New York Times columnists Amely Shemal and David E. Seinger say it's possible that Indian experts have not yet reached the top of the malware code. But a former Indian diplomat said that if India alleged that China had entered the malware Into India's power system, it would complicate the diplomacy efforts between the Indian Foreign Minister and his Chinese counterpart to reduce border tensions.
Meanwhile, British news agency Reuters reported that Chinese government-backed hackers had targeted two leading Indian drug makers who had been vaccine for coronavirus in recent weeks. According to the agency, cyber intelligence firm Saifirma, based in Singapore and Tokyo, said that Chinese hacking group APT-10, also known as StonePanda, attacked the IT system and supply chain software of the Serum Institute of India, the world's largest indian bio-tech and vaccine maker.
The group says the main aim of the attack was to take the top most of the indian pharmaceutical companies.
