Son of GhostNet: China-based hacking targets India government

The people who uncovered GhostNet, an extensive cyber espionage network that targeted the Tibetan exile community, are back with a sequel.

Starting with an infected machine that was uncovered during that investigation, an international team of researchers has uncovered a completely separate network that primarily targeted the Indian government, and uncovered some classified documents that had been obtained by the hackers. By reconstructing the network, the team was able to trace things back to the hacking community in Chengdu, China.
