The highlight of the report is that the Indian Computer Emergency Response Team has already disclosed that it has covered up the exploit that was being exploited by Chinese hackers to hack into the network of two Maritime ports.

But Stuart Solomon the Chief Operating Officer of Recorded Future says that one of the server that belongs to a renowned maritime port of the Indian Subcontinent was still exchanging handshakes with the hacking group and this clearly states that the threat actors belonging to Chinese Intelligence are still carrying out espionage on the network.

“All such speculations are not valid as there is no evidence to substantiate the allegations”, said a spokesperson belonging to Chinese foreign Ministry Wang Wenbin.

US President Joe Biden’s administration has briefly hinted in the recent conference that it will support Indian in combating with the Xi Jinping government in the cyberspace.
