The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan’s (HRCP) website was hacked and then counter-hacked in what seems to be a feud between two cyber groups from UAE and Pakistan.
The website was earlier hacked and defaced by United Arab Emirates (UAE) hackers.
The website's landing page was changed to display a message from the hackers who claimed that the hack and subsequent defacement was part of retaliatory attacks by a group who calls themselves Gh()sT HAXOR- BOZZERROR.
Later in the evening, hackers claiming to be from the Pakistan Cyber Army (PCA), which has a long history of hacking, managed to counter-hack the HRCP's website and post a message of their own claiming they to "restore" the site. They added in their message that they are not hackers but wanted cyber security and a link that led to the site of PCA.
While the PCA managed to replace the defaced page left by UAE hackers with a page of their own, the defaced page of UAE hackers was still accessible on some parts of the site.
Earlier, UAE hackers had claimed that they had hacked the HRCP's website apparently in response to attempts to hack into UAE servers as a part of their message suggested.
"Never touch UAE ./Web or cyber or we will burn every web on your server."
The hackers further claimed that they could hack into government servers.
"Admin we had access to your server we could even bypass and hack government ./Web now you must have know how * we are LOL? Chill we are not that bad."
The message further warned other hackers not to hack into UAE servers, websites and domains.
"This is just a warning message to all newbie hackers don't step into Khaleej systems."
