Tit for tat: IndianDefence.com hacked to avenge Defence.pk defacement

"Pakistan Cyber Army" defaces IndianDefence.com in ongoing cyber battle.

In response to a recent hack of Defence.pk, an online forum for the Pakistan Armed Forces, a group of hackers called the "Pakistan Cyber Army" (PCA) defaced IndianDefence.com, terming it as revenge for defence.pk's defacement.

The PCA says that it successfully penetrated into IndianDefence.com’s server – they issued screenshots of defaced pages and an SQL dump.

The PCA claimed that this was a targeted defacement.

In an email sent to ProPakistani PCA officials said that they do not deface/hack websites randomly, but instead focus their highly targeted attacks on past defacements by Indians hackers.

The PCA warned Indian hackers to not to hack Pakistani websites again, or they would see a similar response.

Earlier, an Indian hacker going by the name "Protector" had defaced Defence.pk – a highly active Pakistani forum for defence oriented and related content for Pakistanis.

The tit-for-tat battle between Pakistani and Indian hackers has largely focused on cross-border site defacement over the last few years.
