Indian Cyber Army hacks Pak govt websites: Report

November 30, 2010 15:53 IST

Nearly 40 Pakistan government websites, including Pakistan Navy, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, National Assembly, Pakistan's Military Account and the Ministry of Science and Technology, have been hacked by a group that has identified itself as the Indian Cyber Army.

In an email sent to media outlets earlier, the hackers' group claimed to have gained root access to the server hosting the websites.

The Dawn reported that the hackers had inserted a page on the websites declaring that they had successfully rooted the server

The hackers did not deface the websites, instead inserted a file to just let the webmasters know that they had successfully rooted their servers and could deface the websites as well.
