The spies also stole documents from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific.
The intruders obtained reports on several Indian missile systems as well as documents related to the travel of NATO forces in Afghanistan. There is evidence that computers at Indian embassies in Kabul, Moscow and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, and at the High Commission of India in Abuja, Nigeria, had been compromised, including ones that process visa applications.
Visa applications, eh? You might just want to check those folks again.
Unlike Ghost Net, which seemed to operate from the Chinese island of Hainan, Shadow Network appears to hail from Sichuan.
Team Red rides again!
