More Than 35 Pakistani Government Websites Hacked By “Indian Cyber Army”
By on December 1st, 2010

This is really scary !

Hindustan Times is reporting that more than 35 Pakistani government websites were hacked by a group calling itself “Indian Cyber Army”. The hackers were able to gain root access to the Government website’s servers and posted the message ” Hacked by Indian Cyber Army”.

The message was accompanied by a digitally mimicked photograph of US soldiers raising a flag on a Japanese Island during World War II, the American flag was transformed into the Indian flag with a little help of Photoshop (could be ).

An Official spokesperson from the Pakistani government said that the Government took down the hacked websites and everything was restored by the afternoon. What remains a concern is that Pakistan’s main anti corruption website – National Accountability Bureau was one of the sites that were hacked.

Pro Pakistan, a Pakistani blog on current affairs was able to save the screenshot of the image that was posted on the hacked government sites.

Just beside the above image, you can spot a web address – www.indishell.in (Don’t rush opening the link yet, might not be safe). The website (Indishell.in) contains thumbnails of Officers and Jawans who died in the recent Mumbai terrorist attacks (2008), accompanied by a few Bollywood numbers that invoke patriotism.

Details pertaining to the group behind the attack are not clear and neither there were any official declarations available at the time of writing this article. We will keep you updated as we get more information on the above subject.
