Re: Hyper-rivalries breed cyber snooping
I totally agree. 

you wrote " It's important that international laws are to be made same for all"

that's correct but it's an ambitious goal difficult to reach

Re: Hyper-rivalries breed cyber snooping
@Securityaffairs I agree with you. As i belong to the region, its a a basic fact that the expertise level at both sides are very high. They are very regularly being used against each other as it is known that both these countries remain in a war like situation on  all fronts even their military is having very cordial relations with each other.

I think the cyberspying is very relevant term and I feels that its right of weaks to do if Giants are doing it openly under security cover. Its important that international laws are to be made same for all but I feel that its implementation is not as it should be especially for the favoured ones. I need not to mention them openly.

Re: Hyper-rivalries breed cyber snooping
I'm not surprised too. Pakistan has also great cyber capabilities and I believe that its Government is involved in the attacks mentioned that are in response to the Indian cyber espionage campaigns uncovered in the past.

Re: Hyper-rivalries breed cyber snooping
I suppose it's turnabout, with India doing the same to Pakistan. Traditional spying alone isn't enough anymore.

Hyper-rivalries breed cyber snooping
Pakistan has a nuclear arsenal and was willing to export the expertise. I'm not too surprised that it's willing to engage in cyber snooping. Countries that are in a high state of rivalry with a neighbor, such as Pakistan and India, will behave more defensive-aggressively.
