This is a very good summary of Chinese hacker attacks on India, to include speculation on mapping of their information infrastructure:
China’s intensified cyber warfare against India is becoming a serious threat to national security. The desire to possess ‘electronic dominance’ over India has compelled Chinese hackers to attack many crucial Indian websites and over the past one and a half years, they have mounted almost daily attacks on Indian computer networks – both government and private.
In October 2007, for example, Chinese hackers defaced over 143 Indian websites. Phishing is a term derived from fishing, and is a fraudulent activity on the Internet to acquire personal information. In phishing, the hackers use spoofed e-mails to lure innocent Internet users and get their personal information like bank account number, credit card details, and password and so on.
