Indian IT Company Was Hired to Hack Politicians, Investors, Journalists Worldwide

| A team of cybersecurity researchers today outed a little-known Indian IT firm that has secretly been operating as a global hackers-for-hire service or hacking-as-a-service platform.

Based in Delhi, BellTroX InfoTech allegedly targeted thousands of high-profile individuals and hundreds of organizations across six continents in the last seven years.

| According to the latest report published by the University of Toronto's Citizen Lab, BellTroX—dubbed 'Dark Basin' as a hacking group—targeted advocacy groups, senior politicians, government officials, CEOs, journalists, and human rights defenders.

| "Over the course of our multi-year investigation, we found that Dark Basin likely conducted commercial espionage on behalf of their clients against opponents involved in high profile public events, criminal cases, financial transactions, news stories, and advocacy," the report reads.

| Sounds like something you'd read on the Augmented Eye

| Oh no, Indian IT companies are the worst. They produce only spaghetti code copied from facebook groups without any comments. If doubt that skilled hackers (and I'm sure there are some in india) would work in such a company. There're only amateurs that just finished their study at facebook university.
