Two Pakistani hackers going with the handle of Xploiter and Dr.Freak from PakBugs hacking group have hacked and defaced the official website of Tameer Microfinance Bank (TMFB) which is Pakistan’s Largest and the first private commercial Microfinance bank.
Hackers left their deface page along with a message on the hacked website which shows the reason for attacking bank site is actually a cyber law act which will be passed from Pakistan’s national assembly. The hackers want a proper cyber law act that should include laws against poorly coded and insecure websites.
The deface message was explained in following words:
- You Didn’t Got Lesson after PKNIC , Soneri Bank and Habib Bank , Allied bank , MCB ‘s infrastructure was Hacked ? Yesterday i got a News Cyber Act gonna be pass in National Assembly But There Must be a Law for Website development! Cyber Act Going to be Passed Next Month! But There Must be a Law for Websites Construction Same Like Building’s Construction Poorly Coded Pakistani Websites should not be passed to Be Published, Same Like poorly constructed houses are not passed. If you add it to your Cyber Act 90% of your Cyber Space will be Secured ! Think Secured Pakistani Cyber Space Zindabad!
It is yet unclear if the hackers have got access to any kind of sensitive data or if any personal data has been exposed online or not. However, the message to the government is indeed delivered by the continues high profile hacks by PakBugs.
Link of targeted website is mentioned below but the mirror is yet not available.
