Cyber War Rages as Indian, Pakistani Cyber Armies Battle it Out

A group of Pakistani hackers calling itself the Pakistan Cyber Army has begun attacking the websites of the Indian Cyber Army attack after ICA shut down nearly 40 Pakistani government websites.

According to The Express Tribune, the two hacker collectives have been engaged in a cyber war, attacking each other’s and government-owned websites. Some of these sites include those belonging to the Indian Central Bureau of Investigations and the Pakistan's Oil and Gas Regulatory Authority, and Jadavpur University Department of Economics.

As of this morning, the Jadavpur University Department of Economics website still displays PCA's defacement message, saying “Back 0ff ! PCA 0wn3d yew! This is Payback from Pak Cyber Army in return to the Defacement of Pak Government Websites.” The Indian Central Bureau of Investigations website is also inaccessible.

“We always get revenge,“ the head of PCA told The Express Tribune. “I do this because I love Pakistan and want to do something “˜big' for my country,“ said the administrator of the website where the PCA collective congregates.
