While scrolling Zone-h about Indo-Pak cyber war, I got hold of latest hack attacks conducted by famous Indian hacking group Indishell on 7th December 2012. The group has hacked 250 Pakistani government websites including the sites of some sensitive and high profile government institutions. You will find the complete list of those sites later in the article.
Earlier few hours ago, I updated you with a 300 Indian sites defacement by Sizzling Soul. I guess this very hack was actually done in reply to the 250 Pakistani sites hack on which you are being updated at the moment.
Indishell defaced websites from government level to private level, the hacked government domains includes the sub-domain of Higher education commission (HEC) (app.hec.gov.pk), website of City of Larkana, Sindh (larkana.gov.pk), website of city of Pakistani city Hyderabad (hyderabad.gov.pk), website of city of Mirpurkhas (mirpurkhas.gov.pk), government owned website of Shaheed Benazirabad (shaheedbenazirabad.gov.pk), Sanghar City website (sanghar.gov.pk), Ghotki city website (ghotki.gov.pk), sub-domain of Pakistan Telecom Authority (intranet.pta.gov.pk) and the website of President’s Program for the Care of Highly Qualified Overseas Pakistanais (PPQP), National Talent Pool (NTP), Ministry of Education and Trainings (ppqp.gov.pk).
The hackers left their deface page, a message and a patriotic song on all the hacked websites. According to the message:
Website Fu***d by Destroyer, Contact me: Destroyer@indishell.in.. Greets: Whole team Indishell family and Indian hackers world..
Pakistan is already under a massive cyber war with Bangladesh, on sunday the Bangladeshi hackers defaced the official website of Pakistan’s Punjab’s assembly and after looking at the list of hacked sites by Indishell, it easy to realize that the hack is high profile and damaging to the Pakistani cyber world. Lets see where does it takes the hackers of both sides.
The complete list of hacked websites and their mirrors can be found on the following Pastebin link:
At the time of publishing this article, some of the websites were restored, while most of the sites were still hacked and displaying deface page left by the hackers.
