Hackers of the Pakistan Cyber Army (PCA) have breached and defaced 7 websites owned by the Indian government, HackRead reports.
The affected websites
are the ones of the Bihar Tourism from Ministry of Tourism India (bihartourism.gov.in), Mitigating Poverty in Western Rajasthan (mpowerraj.gov.in), the Directorate of Medical Education of the Government of Kerala (nurses.kerala.gov.in), the Salary Revision Commission of Government of Kerala (src.kerala.gov.in).
Other victims are the Customs, Excise & Service Tax Appellate Tribunal in New Delhi (cdrcestat.gov.in), the Works Information & Monitoring System (pwddelhi.gov.in) and the Society for Applied Microwave Electronics Engineering & Research (sameer.gov.in)
The hack comes in response to the attacks launched by Indian hackers against Pakistani websites.
At the time of writing, three of the websites were restored, two of them were still defaced, while the last two were taken offline altogether.
It appears the site’s administrators haven’t patched the vulnerabilities, since the sameer.gov.in has been defaced for the second time.
