Indian And Pakistani Hackers Make Cyberspace A Battlefield
Karachi: Ahead of Independence Day, Indian hackers hacked a Pakistan government website last Thursday. The pictures posted by hacker’s online allegedly showed Indian national anthem and Independence Day greetings on the message board.
The attack came months after a pro-Pakistan group hacked the official websites of four prominent Indian institutes — Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi), IIT Varanasi, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and Delhi University (DU).
The group — “Pakistan Haxors Crew” – said, “Nothing deleted or stolen. Just here to deliver my message to Indians.”
Hacking wars are taking place between India and Pakistan with hackers from both sides trying to hack official websites.
Earlier in April, Indian hackers, or the digital warriors crippled 30 Pakistan government websites as a protest against Pakistan’s announcement of the death penalty to former Naval officer Kulbhushan Jadhav.
“All the hacking in Pakistan was part of our operation ‘Justice for Kulbhushan Jadhav’,” one of the hackers told a prominent Indian channel later.
“Charges against Kulbhushan Jadhav are fictitious, fake and farcical. There is no evidence of wrong doing by him. This is an act of “premeditated murder’. Earlier it was Sarabjeet, now it’s Jadhav,” a message on a hacked Pakistani website read.
‘Lulzsec India,’ a black hat computer hacking group, comprising 11 hackers took responsibility of hitting the websites.
There were pitched battles in cyber space between India and Pakistani hackers after last year’s terrorist attack on a military camp in Uri in J&K.
