Google New York: The cyber-spying case against the Indian government is gathering steam and could leave New Delhi red-faced. A group of Indian hackers called â€œThe Lords of Dharamrajaâ€ who earlier alleged the Indian government is strong-arming cell phone makers to provide backdoor access for digital surveillance on their devices said it has more proof that Indian agencies had infiltrated sensitive US government networks. Infosec Islandâ€™s Anthony M Freed reported that one of â€œThe Lords of Dharmarajaâ€ hackers, who calls himself â€œYamaTough,â€ gave him 68 sets of usernames and passwords for US government network accounts. â€œYamaToughâ€ told Freed the account data is just a sample of the information the hacker group, the â€œLords of Dharmaraja,â€ copied from Indian government servers. Reuters reported that US authorities are already investigating allegations that an Indian military intelligence unit hacked into emails of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC) that monitors economic and security relations between the US and China. The US probe was ordered after â€œThe Lords of Dharamrajaâ€ posted an Indian military intelligence document on cyber-spying. US authorities are already investigating allegations that an Indian military intelligence unit hacked into emails of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission. The hacked memo suggests that, â€œin exchange for Indian market presenceâ€ mobile device manufacturers, including RIM, Nokia, and Apple (collectively defined in the document as â€œRINOAâ€) have agreed to provide backdoor access on their devices. The Indian government then â€œutilized backdoors provided by RINOAâ€ to intercept internal emails of the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission. Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller said her company had not provided the Indian government with backdoor access to its products. â€œFox Newsâ€ reported on Thursday that â€œYamaToughâ€ has now provided potentially damaging evidence that the Indian government is actively engaged in spying targeting not only the USCC, but thousands of US government networks, ranging from federal agencies to computer systems used by state entities. â€œInfosec Island received what was described as merely a â€œsampleâ€of what the group â€œThe Lords of Dharmarajaâ€ claim to have in their possession. The data included 68 sets of usernames and passwords for compromised US government network accounts which were said to have been acquired by hacking multiple servers belonging to Indiaâ€™s Ministry of External affairs (mea.gov.in) and the National Informatics Centre (nic.in), amongst others,â€ Freed wrote. â€œIn the best interest of the federal, state and local municipalities and their constituents, Infosec Island will not publish the compromised account data. We have provided the information to the proper authorities and are fully cooperating with law enforcement,â€ he added. There have been a series of cyber intrusions that have struck US institutions ranging from the Pentagon to Google. Many of the previous hacks have been blamed on China. If the US investigation finds India has engaged in cyber espionage it could prove terribly embarrassing for New Delhi. â€œYou can see the difference between these unfolding events and previous claims of cyber espionage. The exfiltration of terabytes of data on the US Joint Strike Fighter or last Marchâ€™s theft of â€œ24,000 documentsâ€ has never been proved,â€ said Forbes. â€œThanks to a hacker group in India, Infosec Island has source material that demonstrates wide spread cyber espionage on the part of the Indian Government which the hackers may publish. This is a historically significant development for those of us who track cyber espionage,â€ added the US magazine. As for the hacker groupâ€™s motivations, â€œYamaToughâ€ told Infosec Island that â€œThe Lords of Dharmarajaâ€ sought to undermine the current Indian regime in favor of a more solidly â€œpro-Americanâ€ alternative. The hackers also have their knives out for telecom mogul Sunil Bharti Mittal, chief of Bharti Enterprises. â€œOur goal is Bharti Mittal go off the political arena and stop manipulating our government,â€ said â€œYamaTough.â€ â€œMy team is pro-US, we fight for rights in our country we are not intentionally harm US companies (sometimes we do hack into (them) since our botnet is worldwide) but we do not steal credit cards and make money of it and we do not do banks, etc. Our mission â€” exposure of the corruption,â€ the hacker added.
