In a recent attack on the Indian intelligence agency by a group called “The Lords of Dharamraja” it was uncovered that RIM, Nokia and Apple all gave backdoor access for selling their products to the 1.2+ billion population of India.
“As of now we start sharing with all our brothers and followers information from the Indian Militaty (sic) Intelligence servers, so far we have discovered within the Indian Spy Programme (sic) source codes of a dozen software companies which have signed agreements with Indian TANCS programme (sic) and CBI,” wrote Yama Tough, one of the members of The Lords of Dharamraja.
Turns out that these backdoor accesses were agreed upon by all three companies for actually spying on the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC). Looking at the leaked military documents by the hackers, and as pointed out by ZDNET, RINOA SUR (RIM, NOkia and Apple) platform was successful.
Earlier in the year it was revealed that Lords of Dharamraja were indeed the group that was behind the Symantec source code release. And whatever the intentions of such hacker groups are in reality, some interesting things like this do surface from time to time.
