India fears ISIS web attacks as experts warn of re-run of Hebdo cyber hacks

Days after attack on Charlie Hebdo, over 19,000 French websites were allegedly hacked by ISIS supporters. The effect of cyber attack was also felt in India as several websites of French institutions including a French school in Delhi was defaced by Islamic hackers who also posted a flag of ISIS on the compromised websites. Experts fear escalation of similar attacks after the recent Paris attack. “I don’t think India is prepared for cyber warfare. There is a number of government agencies working to secure cyber space but they lack coordination,” says Dinesh O Bareja, noted cyber security expert of the Open Security Alliance. Even government records show a rise in the number of cyber attacks in the past few year years. A total number of 22,060, 71,780, 1,30,338, and 49,504 cyber security incidents including phishing, scanning, spam, malicious code and website intrusion were reported to the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) during the year 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 (up to May). Data also shows that a total of 27,605 and 28,481 websites were hacked by various hacker groups during the year 2012 and 2013, respectively. This attack increased in the year 2014 and 2015 (upto May), as the […]

Prepare a new dossier! Pakistan’s cyber Mujahideen hit India

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

A month before Pakistan’s ceasefire violation on the eve of Independence Day, a silent battle was raging in Mumbai’s financial district. Two large private banks, a retail brokerage and a state-owned lender faced a cyberattack from hackers across the border that seriously slowed down all online customer transactions. In the world of cybercrime, such attacks, which could be mistaken as normal traffic overload on the Net, are known as ‘distributed denial of service’ or DDoS. Spread across the world, hackers, either sympathetic to lost causes or indulging in the game of extortion, virtually ‘take over’ thousands of computers in diverse destinations before unleashing a DDoS strike. As computers that are hacked into start behaving as robots – or, ‘botnet’ in cyberparlance, the hackers divert traffic from these terminals to clog the systems of targets like banks and even e-commerce firms. A bank that is invaded may be unaware of the attack and even take a while to sense that customers are struggling to put through a simple net banking fund transfer or credit card payment. The July attack On that day in July, it was no different. The financial institutions received advisory on the DDoS attack from the government’s Computer […]

Last week, the United States and India held a joint Cyber Dialogue in Washington, the fourth in the series, led by the U.S. Cybersecurity Coordinator Michael Daniel and India’s Deputy National Security Advisor Arvind Gupta. Other participants in the dialogue included the Department of State Coordinator for Cyber Issues Christopher Painter and the Ministry of External Affairs Joint Secretary for Policy Planning, Counter Terrorism, and Global Cyber Issues Santosh Jha. The delegation discussed cyber issues related to cyber threats, cyber incident management, cybersecurity cooperation, combatting cybercrime, cybersecurity capacity-building, Internet governance and international security. The agencies claim that they will commit to follow up activities to improve the cybersecurity partnership and achieve concrete results. Other than this, the delegates also met with representatives from the private sector to discuss issues related to the digital economy and cybersecurity. The next round of Cyber Dialogue will be held in New Delhi next year. The Whitehouse website currently lists a fact sheet on cybersecurity cooperation with India (pdf), that outlines the initiatives undertaken: – A joint study of the US Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology and the Indian Department of Information Technology – The […]

Cyber security firms eye India as attacks on world’s IT hub rise

Source: National Cyber Security – Produced By Gregory Evans

Global cybersecurity company TaaSera launched its India business on Thursday, joining a growing number of cybersecurity firms eyeing India as a growth frontier amid an expected doubling of online crime in the country. Silicon Valley-based TaaSera said India, host to some of the world’s biggest IT service companies, was vulnerable to cybercrimes on account of its growing economic progress. Increasing smartphone use, online transactions and the government’s “Digital India” initiative are opening up opportunities in an industry that is worth $77 billion globally. The number of cyber crimes in India may reach 300,000 in 2015, almost double the level of last year, according to an ASSOCHAM-Mahindra SSG study conducted this year. That compares better than the number of reported instances in developed nations. A PWC study of 2014 said the average number of security incidents detected in each of the 500 organisations they surveyed in 2013 was 135 about per organization. However, industry experts say the number of crimes reported in India is not a good measure for comparison, given the absence of disclosure laws. “The point is India does not have public disclosure as law, unlike in the United States and many parts of the western world,” said Ranndeep […]
