Pakistani hackers deface over 30 Israeli websites of top brands: Report

Published: November 20, 2012

The websites include all Microsoft controlled domains of Israel including Skype, Bing, Live, MSN and more. DESIGN: ESSA MALIK

To show support for Gaza, online activist group Anonymous had hacked websites of dozens of Israeli state agencies and a top bank to lodge protest against Israeli attacks. Pakistani hackers did not stay behind and they too defaced over 30 Israeli websites of the world’s top brands, reported ProPakistani on Tuesday.

According to the report, the websites include all Microsoft controlled domains of Israel including Skype, Bing, Live, MSN and more.

The hacked websites bear the name of hacker ZombiE_KsA, however, the ProPakistani report claimed that he had declined to take responsibility. On the other hand, an email to The Express Tribune from an account claiming to be ZombiE_KsA said he had hacked the websites.

ProPakistani sources believe that Pakistan Cyber Army could be behind the defacements.

Following is the list of the hacked websites:

    they went burning the public property for just a 13 minute video uploaded by a dumb person sitting in America, and now, the real criminals are out in the open, and people here seem to be hailing the criminals, GREAT!

    going by the water car technology, and the fact that even the scientists endorsing it; common man along with the scientists and government controlled research organizations don’t have the know how or even the clue about hacking;this has the finger prints of the security and military agencies all over it.

    “1- if u’ve nothing to say relevant to the topic,it’s more sensible not to post stuff irrelevant to the topic.
    2-get a life”

    irrelevant?, just simple common sense is enough to understand the relevance of my comment to the topic here.
    look at the comments here,people her are rejoicing over the hacking and some are endorsing the act, this kind of hacking is purely illegal, and yet they seem to be exuberant with it, while they were out in the public burning the public property few months back over a video.
    whats the difference between the man who made that video and those who are rejoicing over this illegal act of hacking others systems? ……both have the intentions to harm others.

    and to my second point, to make it more clear, this act of hacking doesn’t seem to be of a independent organisation, it resembles more of organised crime carried out by a state entity, specifically the military establishment, the general public will not indulge in such things, and the mullahs are not intelligent enough to do such kind of stuff.

    and how exactly are these two point irrelevant to the topic?

    All these people who’re boasting like brat street kids should know We are mere users while they are inventors so lets not mess around and instead use your time on creative things.
    Almost all of the said websites are owned by Multi-National companies and almost all of them have their presence and investment in Pakistan too, and are not a property of Israel’s government thus if they stop their services millions of users will be unable to use their services like Emails, Skype among others.

    What do you think how do you fly all the planes, or communicate via mobile phones etc? Every thing is connected to the internet or satellites for communication and most of the gadgets use software that are accessible by one way or the other.

    you obviously are not a Pakistani and posing to be one. How could you sit here and write qaseedah’s about the Zionists. Yes ‘Jews’ are smart and are innovators, ‘Israelis’ and ‘zionists’ arent. Actually, the very Albert Einstein who was a Jew once said “It would be my greatest sadness to see Zionists (Jews) do to Palestinian Arabs much of what Nazis did to Jews.”

    Our Beef is with the Zionists and the Israelis, the Jews are peace loving harmonious people. I would suggest a bit of research on difference between the two before you post another uninformed response. You sir certainly have not been in the IT industry for the past 15 years, you probably were part of it 15 years ago and then just could not keep up.

Also Iran has cracked the israeli virus , u dont read the news that often I guess…lost in marvel?
