Delhi commonwealth games seem to have entertained more rivals outside the gaming fields than inside. With almost 5000 total attempts, 1000 potential attacks and over 3 attempts every hour to breach and paralyze the Game`s Networks, Indian security officials has a match of their going on!
Six of the cyber networks of the Delhi Commonwealth Games encountered around 1000 potential security threats during two weeks of the games, with most attempts from China.
A member of the CMG claimed, “In all, our systems detected around 5,000 incidents, about 20 per cent of which could be described as potential attacks. Many were ‘denial-of-service’ attacks, which, if successful, would jam entire networks. But none of these attempts succeeded in penetrating even the first of the three layers of cyber security systems that we had installed.” What a match!
