In the second quarter of 2022, Meta shut down several accounts that were found to be operated by APT36, a Pakistan-backed hacker group that was targeting Indians through bogus accounts. The social media giant also shut down thousands of accounts that were found to be indulging in targeted harassment on grounds of religion or gender. Facebook released its Quarterly Adversarial Report earlier this week, and India features prominently in it.
