The attack on the websites are supposed to be severe as it has been over 24 hours and the websites are still down at the time of writing.
The hacker posted a message on his Facebook profile saying, "Poor Pakistan no matter how hard you try we can bypass those security anytime we want. Before making a statement in media against India think twice."
Godzilla aka G.O.D is the same hacker who launched a cyber attack last year on a number of servers owned by the Pakistani government, causing a number of official departmental websites, including the Ministry of Science and Technology, Ministry of Information Technology and Ministry of Economic Affairs & Statistics, to crash.
This is not the first time, the hacker was also responsible for hacking Pakistan government and Bangladesh government websites multiple times in past.
