In a continuing trend of attacks on websites in Pakistan, the website of political party Pakistan Muslim League – Quaid (PML-Q) was defaced by a hacker identifying himself as GiRl-RiD3r-H3x()r. The defaced page was still in place till the filing of this report.
The hacker, who is believed to be a member of Pak Cyber HunTerZ, used obscene language on the defaced page, attributing the messages to PML-Q leaders Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, Chaudhry Shujaat Hussain and Kashmala Tariq.
According to ProPakistani, the Pak Cyber HunTerZ group has recently been very active and has been involved in the hacking of hundreds of Indian and European websites, and has also attacked Pakistani websites which are against their “beliefs”.
A hacker identified as UNDT had recently taken over Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf’s (PTI) Facebook pages. Over 30 official pages of the party had been taken over on the social media website.
UNDT had warned PTI that he would continue to hack the party’s pages if it continued to restrict fans from posting questions and comments on the pages. The pages were recovered after four days.
