MEA servers hacked, China hand suspected

The computer network within the Ministry of External Affairs has been broken into, allegedly by Chinese hackers, government sources told Hindustan Times on Thursday.

India’s relations with China are delicately poised with the Tibet issue gaining centre-stage internationally, but the alleged hacking predates the current crisis, the sources added. Officially, the MEA refused to either deny or confirm the reports.

The hackers broke into MEA’s internal communications network, possibly accessing e-mails through which officials communicate policy and decisions across the ministry’s offices in India and in our foreign missions.
