The Symantec source code revealed to the public by hackers in India is not the only time the hactivists have struck.

Infosec Island reports it has received evidence indicating that the Indian government is engaged in espionage, specifically targeting the US-China Economic and Security Review Commission (USCC), and potentially thousands of U.S. government networks.

The hacktivists who call themselves "Lords of Dharmaraja" claim to be pro-American and are dissatisfied with the current Indian "regime."
