Cyber-security breach detected in Army’s Northern Command, investigations on


The Indian Army has detected a cyber-security breach involving a senior officer posted in Jammu and Kashmir under the Northern Command. “The cyber-security breach was detected by the Indian Army personnel during a routine check when a malware was found in the computer of a senior officer,” army sources told ANI when asked about the same.

The investigation in the matter is on and it is being checked how the malware could find its way to his computer, they said. Army officers get a computer for carrying out their official work and that system is connected with Army intranet facility.

The Army keeps issuing cyber alerts and warnings to its personnel over usage of WhatsApp and other social media platforms along with cautions to be exercised while using computers to avoid hacking or other such attempts.

It is emerging that the present case of cyber-security breach was detected by an Army intelligence officer who then informed his higher-ups about it. Read More
