A group of Bangladeshi hacktivists going with the handle of “Team Haxorsistz” has hacked and defaced three official websites of Indian based Zee satellite television network of Zee Entertainment Enterprises.

The targeted sites belong to Zee Bangla, a Bengali language cable television channel, Zing TV, formerly known as Zee Muzic and Music Asia, Zee Cinema.

The network was attacked as a result of an insult that was made during a reality show ‘Mirakkel’  on Zee Bangla TV channel, allegedly insulting the Bangladeshi cricketers as mentioned on the deface message page left by the hackers on all three websites.

  • Shame on you Mirakkel Beakkel Looser  Don’t ever dare to make comedy of our crickets. Our cricketers are our pride and bloody piece of shit Jamil, don’t return to Bangladesh, Live in India, live for India.
  • We the people of Bangladesh don’t want to see your face here again.

The hack is high profile as Zee network somehow was away from the reach of hackers.

At the time of publishing this article, all three websites were taken offline.
