    In a major embarrassment, the website of premier investigating agency CBI was hacked on Friday night 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.

    CBI is aware that its official website has been hacked and defaced. An inquiry is being launched in the matter and necessary remedial measures to restore the website are being taken, Press Information Officer R.K. Gaur told PTI.

    Re: CBI website hacked by ‘Pakistani Cyber Army’

    Worldwide there need to be serious and completely focused countermeasures taken against state-sponsored cyber warfare. I can list the countries that are among the most notable offenders. It is well-known among Internet security experts and think tanks that the funding and support of state-sponsored "armies" of cyber-warriors occurs. Of course the countries involved have "clean hands." But the fact of the matter is their intelligence services are grooming the best of their tech graduates to engage in this way.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
