Cyber War Begins! Pakistani Websites Hacked By Indian Hackers


According to several computer security websites, the number of Indian websites hacked by Pakistani groups increased from 4 in 1999 to 72 in 2000. In comparison about 7 Pakistani websites were hacked in 1999 by Indian groups and this number rose to 18 in 2000. Pakistani hackers responded to this by hacking over 150 Indian websites in 2001. From then onwards a large number of key websites of both countries have been hacked.




Cyber War Begins! Pakistani Websites Hacked By Indian Hackers



This cyber war came to a head in September 2015, when a Kerala government website was hacked. In retaliation, Indian hackers banded together to begin #OpPak, where at least 227 Pakistani websites were breached and defaced.


Two Pakistani hackers going with the handle of Dr@cul@ and Muhammad Bilal have hacked and defaced twenty thousand (20,000) Indian websites against Indian government and in support of alleged freedom movement in Indian administrated Kashmir.


Examples of cyberwarfare driven by political motivations can be found worldwide. In 2008, Russia began a cyber attack on the Georgian government website, which was carried out along with Georgian military operations in South Ossetia. In 2008, Chinese "nationalist hackers" attacked CNN as it reported on Chinese repression on Tibet.[81] Hackers from Armenia and Azerbaijan have actively participated in cyberwarfare as part of the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, with Azerbaijani hackers targeting Armenian websites and posting Ilham Aliyev's statements.[82][83]


The 2018 cyberattack on the Marriott hotel chain[110][111] that collected personal details of roughly 500 million guests is now known to be a part of a Chinese intelligence-gathering effort that also hacked health insurers and the security clearance files of millions more Americans, The hackers, are suspected of working on behalf of the Ministry of State Security (MSS), the country's Communist-controlled civilian spy agency.[112][113][114] "The information is exactly what the Chinese use to root out spies, recruit intelligence agents and build a rich repository of Americans' personal data for future targeting."


In an extension of a bilateral dispute between Ethiopia and Egypt over the Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam, Ethiopian government websites have been hacked by the Egypt-based hackers in June 2020.[141][142]


The hackers from Pakistan and Kerala are engaged in a cyber war for the past few days. Mallu Cyber Soldiers hacked the website of External Publicity Wing, an arm of Pakistan's ministry of information, broadcasting & national heritage, on Tuesday and as usual revealed the password and IDs on its Facebook page. But to their utter dismay, some posted Pakistan Ki Jai.


Saad, who has run an Internet consultancy company for almost a decade, says these types of cyber attacks came to light in the early 2000s, when hackers from both sides started defacing government websites.


There is no single data source for how many people get hacked. However, it is estimated that there is a victim of cyber crime every 37 seconds. In 2021, 1 in 5 internet users had their emails leaked online, which could lead to hackers being able to access their accounts or target the email in phishing attacks.


New Delhi: India witnessed heightened cyber activity over the past few months, with hackers, mostly from outside the country, infiltrating or trying to infiltrate government websites and accounts in the backdrop of the Nupur Sharma incident. While enemy countries often employ cyber espionage tactics to steal data or cripple critical infrastructure, this time, it was mostly mischief mongers trying to prove a point. The government has a robust mechanism to avoid such unwanted incidents, but the same cannot be said for other websites, which are often found wanting on the cyber security front. It is for this reason that incidents of hacking into government websites and accounts comprise only a fraction of the total cyber breaches in India. According to Lok Sabha data, a total of 160,560 Indian websites were hacked between 2016 and 2021. This translates to a mind-boggling 73 websites every day! Notably, government websites accounted for only 0.5 per cent (812) of the total websites targeted. With 28,897 cyber attacks, including on 186 government websites, 2021 reported the highest such incidents in the last four years. !function(){"use strict";window.addEventListener("message",(function(e){if(void 0!==e.data["datawrapper-height"]){var t=document.querySelectorAll("iframe");for(var a in e.data["datawrapper-height"])for(var r=0;r


Summary: Hackers stole the details of 617 million online accounts from 16 hacked websites, including Dubsmash, MyHeritage, Whitepages, Fotolog, BookMate, CoffeeMeetsBagel, HauteLook, and DataCamp. They then put the details on the dark web Dream Market cyber-souk for less than $20,000 in Bitcoin. Most of the leaked information consisted of email addresses, account-holder names, and hashed passwords that had to be cracked before they could be used.
