The website of the National Highway Authority was defaced by an Indian hacker going by the alias Ashell on Saturday.
The message left by the hacker states that the defacement was carried out in remembrance of those Indians who were killed during the Mumbai triple bombings on July 13, 2011. Ashell belongs to the hacker group Indishell, which is also known as the Indian Cyber Army.
The hacker also left a link to the “database” of the entire website, calling the defacement a “gift to Pakistan”.
Over 20 people had been killed and 141 injured on July 13 last year in three blasts during the evening rush hour in central and south districts of Mumbai at Opera House, Zaveri Bazaar and Dadar.
Hackers from Pakistan and India have been embroiled in a cyber war, and also continue to attack websites from their own countries.
Indian hackers had defaced the website of Atrium Cinemas, Karachi’s first 3D entertainment centre, in November last year.
