We cannot allow China to dominate: US Lawmaker on India cyberattack report

  • A top American lawmaker on Monday urged the Biden administration to stand by India in view of the Chinese cyber attack on India’s power grid system.
  • “The US must stand by our strategic partner and condemn China’s dangerous cyber-attack on India’s grid, which forced hospitals to go on generators in the midst of a pandemic,” Congressman Frank Pallone said in a tweet on Monday.
  • “We cannot allow China to dominate the region through force and intimidation,” tweeted Pallone, a day after Recorded Future, a Massachusetts-based company which studies the use of the internet by state actors, said Chinese government-linked group of hackers targeted India’s critical power grid system through malware, amidst the tense border tension between the two nations.
