CBI website hacked by 'Pakistani Cyber Army'

In a major embarrassment, the website of premier investigating agency CBI was hacked tonight by programmers identifying themselves as "Pakistani Cyber Army". The home page of the CBI website had a message from the 'Pakistani Cyber Army' warning the Indian Cyber Army not to attack their .

The hackers have made a mockery of the country's cyber security by infiltrating into the CBI website, supposed to be one of the most secure websites. The CBI is connected to the command centre of world police organisation - Interpol - 24x7.

The message from the hackers also spoke about the filtering controls provided by the National Informatics Centre (NIC), a body which mans computer servers across the country.

Intelligence agencies have been often warning the government that proper cyber security was not being ensured in government offices and that no security audit was being carried out.

The Pakistani Cyber Army has also warned that it would carry out "mass defacement" of other websites.


People who were logged in to the Central Bureau of Investigation’s home page redirected to a page that said this effort was in response to Pak websites hacked by ‘Indian Cyber Army’.
The CBI Website’s home page mentions these lines –
This attempt is in response to the Pakistani websites hacked by ‘Indian Cyber Army’. We told you before too.. we are sleeping but not dead.. remember PCA (Pakistan cyber army)!..back off kids or we will smoke your d00rs off like we did before..
