Anonymous hackers are keeping up with their #OpIndia, this time they have taken down the official website of ShivSena via DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack. 

The attack was announced by the Anonymous on their official Twitter account.

 

ShivSina is a political organisation in India founded on 19 June 1966 by political cartoonist Bal Thackeray, the organisation emerged out of a movement in Mumbai demanding preferential treatment for Maharashtrians over migrants to the city. It is also known for its racial behavior against the Indian Muslims and threats to kill Pakistani cricket team if they ever visited India.

Cyber attack on Shiv Sina website is second setback for the party’s workers, as the leader of the party Bal Thackeray passed away last month.

Meanwhile it seems as if Anonymous hackers will not give up, the hackers started #Op_India against the internet censorship in the country by its own government. Last week, same Anon hackers hacked and defaced private website of Indian Information Technology Minister Kapil Sibal.

At the time of writing this article, ShivSena website was down and displaying [Service Unavailable] message.
