Breaking News : CBI website hacked by 'Pakistani Cyber Army'
Advertisement
#1
In a major embarrassment, the website of premier investigating agency CBI was hacked Friday 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 websites.

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.

Pak hacking: CBI fails to restart official website

New Delhi, Creating embarrassment to the whole world, India's premier investigative agency, Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI), has failed to restart its official website after the cyber attack by Pakistan hackers.

CBI officials told on Saturday, Dec 4 that they were working to restart the website, which was hacked by unknown person who claimed as "Pakistan Cyber Army". But till now the CBI official site (http://cbi.nic.in/) has not been fixed.

While trying to login to the site, it is showing error message, which states that the site is still offline. The hackers have infiltrated up to the root level, which makes it difficult to fix the issues.

On Friday, Dec 3, a group of Pakistan hackers attacked Indian sites including CBI site. Hackers left a note reading that it was a response to attack on Pakistan websites by Indian hackers.

Later on Saturday, CBI had filed an case against unknown people under Information Technology Act for the attack on the site.

Hacking of CBI website raises question over safety regulations

NEW DELHI: The recent hacking of CBI's website by a group called 'Pakistani Cyber Army' has raised questions over the safety regulations of servers provided by National Informatics Centre, the organisation responsible for maintaining government servers.

While the NIC maintains a studied silence over the entire issue, sources in the security establishment say that the safety mechanism of the NIC was not up to the mark and several reminders were being sent to them for upgrading their hardware.

The official website of the CBI was hacked by the 'Pakistani Cyber Army' on the intervening night of December 3 and 4. The CBI had yesterday registered a case against unknown persons in this connection.

A report "Shadows in the Cloud" by a Canadian think- tank comprising "Information Warfare Monitor" and "Shadows Server" earlier this year said there was evidence of a cyber espionage network that compromised government, business and academic computer systems in India , especially the office of the Dalai Lama.

According to a Canadian firm, which investigated the hacking of the Dalai Lama's computer, as many as 12 computers of NIC had been hit by the Chinese hackers.

The report said the recovery and analysis of ex-filtrated data, including one that appears to be encrypted diplomatic correspondence, two documents marked "Secret", six as "Restricted", and five as "Confidential". These documents are identified as belonging to the Indian government.

"However, we do not have direct evidence that they were stolen from Indian government computers and they may have been compromised as a result of being copied onto personal computers.

"The recovered documents also include 1,500 letters sent from the Dalai Lama's office between January and November 2009. The profile of documents recovered suggests that the attackers targeted specific systems and profiles of users," the report said.

The sources said besides reports by well-established think-tanks, there were several notes drawing urgent attention of various key ministries about possible intrusion by hackers either based in China or Pakistan trying to infiltrate into the computers.

Agencies have also cautioned against the practice of connecting official computers and laptops with unsecured Internet connections by some bureaucrats thus compromising security.

With hackers mainly from China very active and having penetrated deep into the cyber space, the security agencies had asked all ministries especially the Defence, External, Home and the PMO to separate their official computers with those with Internet facility.
