In a latest hacking scam, apparently Indian hackers have defaced Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Right to Information (RTI) website.
The Commission of KP Right to Information makes sure transparency besides giving access to information. The website has been defaced along with a message which exhibits a flag from the neighboring country, India. Moreover, a message in Hindi language is also written on the website. The translation of complete message is not available, however, some part which was able to be translated read as:
“Don’t India, Pakisthan [Pakistan] for Sale, Indian power,”
At present, the effected website is demonstrating ‘under maintenance’ message. The IT department of KP is presently at work to recuperate the website.
The incident of hacking took place right after 2 days when a hacking group from Pakistan ‘Alone Injector’ marred Indian National Security Guard (NSG) website. The hackers targeted Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi with an obnoxious message. In addition, the message was displayed along with an image of Indian police beating Kashmiris. A statement was also conveyed which read as ‘Free Kashmir’.
Indo-Pak cyber attacks
This is not the first time both India and Pakistan have made a cyber-attack on each other’s institutions. The hacking war is going on between two countries for quite some time now. Not too long ago, Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) servers were defaced by anonymous hackers along with a message ‘Pakistan Jindabad’.
Furthermore, Congress VP Rahul Gandhi’s Twitter account was also hacked in December 2016 for some time. The hackers were posting some filthy and inappropriate tweets from his account.
In September 2016, Pakistani hackers also marred Indian planes and coerced them to listen to ‘Dil Dil Pakistan’. Indian hackers took the revenge by defacing Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) website later.
Lately, the website of KP’s government was also hacked in December 2016. The website was hacked Pushtoon Cyber Army along with a message which read:
“Change is not coming but it has come”
The hackers also ridiculed the slogan of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) by stating:
“Change has come rather than coming and we have entered into your system”.
