RIM, Nokia and Apple give backdoors to spooks

Written by Nick Farell



Revealed by Indian Hackers


A group of Indian hackers called The Lords of Dharmaraja have managed to reveal that "in exchange for the Indian market presence" mobile device manufacturers, including RIM, Nokia, and Apple have agreed to provide backdoor access on their devices.

Apparently the backdoor has already been used to have a look at internal emails of the U.S.- China Economic and Security Review Commission. The commission is a government body with a mandate to monitor, investigate and report to Congress on 'the national security implications of the bilateral trade and economic relationship' between the US and China.

The hack was posted on Pastebin on December 21 and was immediately deleted.  The hackers think it is something to do with US pressure because it did not want people know about their Secret Negotiations with Corporations and Governments what concerns Chinese.

However since the document included a Imgur link to documents called "the preview of the INDIAN MI spy prgramme called RINOA which they used to spy on the commission it could equally the Indians who pulled the article.

The hack hit the headlines when it was revealed that it exploited a weakness in the Symantec security checking software. However, the hackers think that the real news is the fact that the Indians are spying on the US government to find out what it is doing about China. Frankly that surprises us less.
