BSNL Website Hacked by Pakistani Hacker

BSNL just can’t get enough of the negative lime-light. It has not even been two months since we reported BSNL getting compromised, and here we are again. A self-proclaimed Pakistani hacker has defaced a public BSNL page. Last time, we revealed a serious security flaw in an internal application at BSNL called Dotsoft, and funnily enough, the vulnerability still exists.
Apparently, Dotsoft became a hot topic with ethical hackers earlier in 2009, here is a clear proof-of-concept hack attempt aimed at Dotsoft. Though, this time, the situation is even worse. Today, a sub-directory on the BSNL website was hacked by a Pakistani hacker. The hacker, who calls himself ‘KhantastiC haX0r’, placed an index.html file on the sub-directory to prove that he has write-access to the web server.   He has also stated he has copied and removed all logs of the intrusion, as well as copied the databases — possibly being held for ransom? The defaced site is available at and doesn’t seem to affect any other pages within the same sub-directory, like


It is worth mentioning that although ‘Khantastic haXor’ claims to have connections with the PCA, he was actually thrown out of the PCA according to online reports. The situation was so bad that his personal details were exposed by a rival online ‘crew’. They went so far as to include personal photographs of the person in question. In any fashion, KhantastiC haX0r doesn’t seem to take his online anonymity very serious, as his Google+ account features pictures in high detail.

BSNL seriously needs to strengthen itself against attacks like these, with over 90 million subscribers, it’s a wonder they’ve managed to stave off theft of credit cards, passwords and other internal databases. It would seem like this is an online turf-war and BSNL was simply caught in the middle, perhaps their state ties can help them with building a more robust and secure network.

This makes for a good Diwali gift for BSNL from Pakistan.

India’s $35 Tablet to be Launched on October 5

The famous $35 Indian tablet, which was proudly announced by the Indian Minister of Communications and Information Technology on television, was originally scheduled to be launched in January 2011. However, due to some issues with the official vendor HCL, the launch was delayed. We had almost forgotten about it and had given up on it as vaporware, but apparently the Sakshat project is still alive.

India $35 Tablet

According to a report by the Times of India, the $35 tablet will be made available to students in primary schools and universities on October 5. The official name of the tablet will be announced at launch. We still don’t know the exact specifications of the tablet.

It’s likely that the final device will be a rebranded and subsidized version of the Chinese Hivision Speedpad tablet running a customized version of Android.

The government will bundle educational content and videos with the tablet in collaboration with certain universities, though no specifics have been revealed yet.

October is going to be pretty exciting, with the iPhone 5 launch on October 4, the Android Ice Cream Sandwich and Nexus Prime launch on October 11, and now the Indian $35 tablet coming on October 5.
