India’s biggest cybersecurity company, CCCam, has been hacked by a group calling itself the “CCCam Anonymous” that claimed to be part of a group called “The Shadow Brokers” who stole data and files from the firm’s servers, the company said.
The CCCams servers were also accessed by a “large number of compromised computers in India and Bangladesh”, the company’s CEO Satish Bhargava said on Tuesday.
The group has been identified as the “Shadow Brokers”, a hacking group known for stealing credit card data from victims.
India has been one of the top recipients of stolen credit card information in the world, and the country has been plagued by cyberattacks for years.
CCCammers have been known to target banks and other financial institutions, with the largest group of targets, known as “Cointelpro”, targeting banks and financial institutions across the world.
A CCCameras spokesperson did not respond to requests for comment on Wednesday.
India was also one of India’s top 10 targets for the largest attack in the country’s history, with more than 500 cyberattacks reported, according to the cyber security firm Trend Micro.
