The Hackology Blog claims that update servers for BOSS Linux were hacked in 2015, eventually allowing access to Indian military and government servers.

This website claims that:

  1. Hackers infected the update servers and repositories which means they could backdoor any software installed by a BOSS user.

  2. Tools leaked from the NSA were used to exploit these servers.

  3. Through the repositories they infected every user account.

Is it true such an attack was successfully carried out on the Indian government?
