The network intrusions are said to have been aimed at "at least seven Indian State Load Despatch Centres (SLDCs) responsible for carrying out real-time operations for grid control and electricity dispatch within these respective states."  

The attacks were attributed to an emerging threat cluster Recorded Future is tracking under the name Threat Activity Group 38 (TAG-38).
